In today's post I want to put together a "how to" on making money online!

There are literally 100's, perhaps 1000's of ways to make money online. And let me tell you... there is no "secret" to making money! (encase you were looking for one)

Before I get into the details if you want to see how I make a full time income online click here to see my no.1 recommendation!

Back in 2010 I left my job as an apprentice and started doing freelance work, so that's the first method I will cover.

1 - Freelancing

This is an easy way to start making money online and is the method that enabled me to leave my job in 2010 as an apprentice engineer.

Freelancing is basically doing jobs for people on a 1 off or contract basis. There are various websites that list freelancing jobs and all you do is sign up (for free), create a profile and then bid on the jobs you want to complete. The employer (person listing the job) will select the person who they think is the best fit for the job based on price, experience etc.

When you are new and you don't have any feedback or much experience the best way to get jobs is to be the lowest bidder. This will allow you to gain experience and good feedback. Then you can raise prices as people will be willing to pay more if they know you can do a good job.

The jobs available on freelancing websites are literally endless so there is bound to be something you can do!

2 - Ebay

Ebay is a good way to make money. The first thing you want to sell is your own stuff. Of course don't sell stuff you need, but start by getting rid of anything you don't need. This will give you some basic experience of Ebay.

Once you are familiar with how it works and the listing fees etc you can start to source other products and list them. This isn't as easy as it sounds because you need to find products that are selling and have enough margin to actually turn a profit.

(Just make sure you are listing genuine products if they are electrical goods. If you list counterfeit products you will most likely have legal action taken against you. Even if you did it accidently because of a bad wholesaler)

3 - Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is what I moved into after doing freelancing. It is what allowed me to take my income from poor/average to very good!

With affiliate marketing you are selling a product that someone else created. You simply take a commission. The benefits to affiliate marketing are that you don't need to handle payments, customers or stock. You simply make the sale and you get paid.

The best way to do affiliate marketing is to build a list in the niche you want to operate in. This means that you build up a subscriber list of people interested in your niche. So if you want to operate in the weight loss niche, you would build a list of subscribers who are interested in losing weight. When you have this list you can then email them promoting a product that will help them lose weight. When you sell that product as an affiliate you will make money.

(The trick to doing this successfully is to get your subscribers to trust you. If they trust you they are more likely to buy what you recommend. To build trust you need to treat your subscribers well by giving away free content such as videos and articles)

Hopefully this article has given you an insight into how people make money online!
