The internet has opened up a plethora of new ways to earn income. What is especially exciting is that many can be done from your own home. Today we will look at three ways to make money using the internet: online auctions, writing, and affiliate marketing.
Buying and selling via online auctions can be both fun and profitable. There are many popular auction websites that you can choose from, such as eBay, Purple Wave, WebStore, uBid, and Yardsellr.
There are two ways you can use online auctions to earn income. First, you can sell items you make, such as crafts, clothing or anything else. Some people turn a hobby into a moneymaking business by selling what they make, trade or collect. Another option is to use auctions to buy items at a low price in bulk then sell them online for a profit. Many times you can find several of the same items for sale together (called a “lot”) and then sell each one separately, or even in smaller lot’s. Just remember the old cliché, buy low, sell high!
If you like to write, there are also many opportunities to sell your work online. Use Google to search for “paid writing” websites and find one or two you like. People in a variety of professions will pay you to write articles for them. Often this work is paid by the word, so the more you write, the more you make.
Another writing opportunity online is to proofread papers written by others. There are many businesses that offer these services, again in a variety of industries. For those who can write and are able to quickly find information online, you could even answer questions from others and get paid for it. Check out www.chacha.com for more about that.
Finally, you could set up your own website and sell your writing online yourself. For that matter, you could sell almost anything you wanted! Having your own website takes us to the last method of making money online: affiliate marketing.
No matter what your own website is for, you can make money by placing small ads for other companies on your site. This is known as affiliate marketing, and thousands of people use it every day. You choose the products or websites you want to advertise, sign up with them as an affiliate, get the code to add to your website and you’re ready! You can put up one or two ads, or many different ones. Affiliate marketing does not generate as much income as the other methods, but can bring in a steady flow if your site becomes popular.
Online auctions, writing, and affiliate marketing are just three easy ways for you to start making money online today.
