Using the internet is the fastest and easiest way to start to make money from home. Of the many ways available, I’ve compiled the 5 easiest and most legitimate ways to make money on the internet. They are:

1. Make money selling information
2. Make money from affiliate marketing
3. Make money selling on eBay
4. Make money from freelance writing
5. Make money from share trading.

I’ve personally tried all of these ways of making money online and some others, but these five methods are easily the best way of making money online easily and consistently from home.

Learning to make money online is really just learning to solve people's problems. Finding out what people want to know and then making that information available is doing just that.

To make money selling information online you’ll need some form of website. This could take the form of a website that you’ve built yourself, paid someone to build for you, or you could even start with a free blog from somewhere like or You could even use the blog on your MySpace page or another online community, though these platforms aren't as conducive to being used to make money.

You can make money selling information online in a number of forms. The easiest way is to write an ebook. Many ebooks sold online range from only 20 pages through to several hundred pages. Depending on the subject you’re writing about your ebook may be of great value even without being very long.

You might start writing an ebook on something you have lot of experience, interest or education in. Are you a mechanic? Have you travelled the world? Have you spent your career in marketing or education? It wouldn’t be had for you to write an ebook detailing your experience or knowledge in the subject and providing that information for people searching online.

Another easy way to make money selling information online is by producing videos. These are also easy to make and post online. For example, if you were a mechanic you could film yourself demonstrating how to fix a fuel line in a certain model of car. Then you would charge people a small fee to watch the video. You could make a whole series of videos about a subject and the more content you can provide the higher its value. Videos are especially valuable because there is a lot of free text based information online. The rarity of video training increases its value, and your ability to make money from doing it.

Freelance writing is an easy way to make money online.
