It’s Possible! 6 Ways To Make Money Online

6 Things You Need To Give Up If You Want To Be Super Successful

No, we’re not talking about dodgy scams or emailing strange people from far away in order to make millions, we’re talking about actual, real ways to make a passive income that could become a full-time job. A lot of people think it’s impossible to make money online, but it’s not! Here’s how!

Rent your space

If you’re lucky enough to have your own place, you know the perks of living alone, but if you’re finding that rent and bills leaves you strapped for cash, try renting out your space for visitors. The easiest way to do this is through Airbnb. It’s safe and well maintained and you can make a lot of extra cash depending on your space.

Be a teacher

Do you have a skill you need to share with the world? Why not join Skillshare and create classes for visitors. You don’t need to be a teacher, you just need to share your skills with the world! Skillshare splits profits with the teacher 50% so you should be able to make some extra money with a well planned and well thought out course.

Sell a service

From writing copy to designing a website, there are tonnes of services you can advertise on Fiverrr, plus you keep 80% of the revenue from your gig. Publish a service, set a price and reap the benefits!

Monetize your blog

It sounds like a long process but it’s actually not that hard to monetize your blog. You need a strong brand image and a great grasp of social media first, and then you need to be brave and send some emails or create a paid service such as a course or mini book. Check out our guide to making money from your blog here to get you started.

Go Freelance

Yes, it’s absolutely possible, check out websites like Upwork to find out whether people want your freelance services and what kind of money you’d make. Browse your skill of choice and have a look at what’s available.

Sell on Etsy

Some of our favorite items come from Etsy, just check out our picks here. If you have a skill that you can sell like knitting, digital artwork, or illustrations you might very well be able to establish an awesome shop on Etsy – if not, you can always sell other things, check out the listings to see if you can start your little Etsy shop from your bedroom.
