There are millions of people around the world who make their living online by buying and selling different products and services. The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 caused a global lockdown and ushered in a work from home era which showed regular 9 to 5 employees the pros and cons of working from home in a digital space.
A large number of these employees who enjoyed working from home are now looking to turn that into a permanent thing and want to know how they can make money online either as a full-time income or as a part-time income. Guest author Kevin Cochran shares the top 5 ways you can make money online doing what you enjoy.
Internet marketing has been around as long as the internet and is now a multi-billion dollar industry that comprises so many different facets. You can engage in internet marketing through promoting your own digital product or service, getting into affiliate marketing, drop shipping or social media marketing.
The options are endless and the industry is vast. What you should do is first decide what you are good at and then work from there. If you are good at playing video games, for example, you should think about creating a digital platform for yourself on Twitch or YouTube and live stream your video games.
If you are really good at what you do, then focus on teaching your viewers how to get better at playing the game, tips and tricks that you have learnt through your own experience and work on releasing new content that will bring in more subscribers and boost your video views. Monetize your channel and watch the money come in. Do note that this can be a slow process as the internet marketing space is a lot more competitive today than it was before.
Online Casino Games
If you like to play casino games for real money, then you can play slot machines at land-based casinos or play slots online and see if you can win some money. Do note that it is a lot more difficult making a regular income playing online slot games. The better option would be to play classic table games such as poker which allows you to make a living online, provided you are good at the game.
There is a growing number of Canadian players who are turning to online poker games as they are inspired by the success of Canadian poker player Daniel Negreanu who has more than $42 million in career prize money. Do note that you can also play at live casino Canada and take part in online live dealer casino games that allow you to interact with a human dealer.
If you find it too stressful to launch your own internet marketing website or set up a dropping shipping site, then you can always try the option of freelancing. There are thousands of digital businesses, who are in regular need of assistance to complete a variety of tasks and services ranging from content writing, online training, online chat support, digital graphics, website programming, app development, social media marketing and virtual assistance.
You need to evaluate your skills and see which area you can contribute. After you decide this, try and build a small portfolio to showcase your work and talent. This might require you to some of your initial work for free or for a low rate in order to put together a portfolio. Once this is done, you can then go to websites like freelancer.com and fiverr.com and list your services along with your rate.
The crypto market is hotter than ever and it is a great way for you to make money by trading cryptocurrencies. Since the crypto market is highly volatile, it is possible for you to make a lot of money or lose a lot of money in short period of time. If you are going to engage in crypto trading, it is important for you to learn as much as you can about the crypto market before you start engaging in crypto trading.
Publish A Digital Book
If you are good at writing, you should think about publishing an e-book. Pick a subject that you consider yourself an expert in and share your knowledge. You can upload this book to Amazon and other e-publishing platforms. Then use social media to promote your book online and bring in the sales.
Go ahead and experiment with one or more of these ways to make money online and see which one ends up working out for you. Just remember that it can be hard to get started but the journey does get easier once you start making money online.
