5 Best Ways to Make Money at Home

The advents of technology, especially the internet, has revolutionized the way one can earn money today. Completely gone are the days when one had to work a mundane 9 to 5 job and still get underpaid because the internet has enabled people to make money through various means.

While there have been a lot of ‘work from home’ scams over the internet which might make you think that earning from the internet is not REALLY possible, but I don’t let that damper your spirit about making “The Benjamin’s” online.

So to give light to some of the legitimate and remarkable ways to make money from home, I have compiled this list of “5 Best Ways to Make Money from Home”.

Websites for Freelancers:

Probably one of the easiest ways to make money from home is to sell your services on freelancing platforms such Fiverr, Upwork, Freelancer and Envato Marketplace.

The services you sell on these platforms can range from writing to graphics design, video making to creating full functional websites. I’ve personally made some extra cash on these avenues and they definitely can demand a lot of work, especially in the template marketplaces such as Envato.

 Your Own E-Commerce Store:

Another great way of making money from home that is making rounds all over the internet is having your own e-commerce store.

Once you have your own store, you can sell a variety of items such as pieces of art including graphics, ornaments, and sculptures, or also something which might be very famous of your city or country which you can send to clients around the world. The ideas of things which you can sell through your e-commerce store are endless, therefore, improvise!

Some popular E-Commerce store avenues are EBay, Amazon Sellers, and Etsy.

 Google AdSense and other PPC:

If you are in for a long-term game of making money from home, then this might just be THE way for you. Blogging requires selecting a niche which is hot among audiences and in which content can be produced regularly.

Once your blog gets mature you put a variety of suitable ads, so that, whenever visitors of yours click the ad while going through your content, you would be paid a small amount of money.

Therefore, to earn big through this method, you need a mature blog with regularly updated attractive content that is viewed by hundreds of thousands of unique visitors.

Become a YouTube Rockstar:

YouTube-logo-full_colorThis one of the most well-known ways of making money from home. YouTube isn’t just a video sharing platform anymore because people are cashing in big paychecks by sharing their videos and putting ads on them that are recommended by YouTube.

It requires hard work and patience, along with publishing a regular stream of quality content which would actually be beneficial to viewers.

Affiliate Marketing:

Affiliate Marketing is the process of earning money as a commission by promoting other company’s or people’s products.

The process is simple, you find a product you like, and you promote it to others to earn a piece of the profit for every single sale that you make. Even though the process is simple, yet it is time-consuming and requires lots of hard work, all of which definitely pays off if you are persistent enough.

You must remember real affiliate marketing isn’t some get rich quick scheme; none of these deals are real, because you typically don’t just get rich quick, and those deals are usually scams in the end.

Affiliate marketing is my personal favorite tactic to making money online and it actually pays off after a lot of hard work. Check out my review of the way I learned how to make money online right here.

    You’ve compiled the most prominent ways to make money online here. Personally, I prefer affiliate marketing since it’s most aligned with my skill set and interests (I’m to shy to be a youtuber!). It’s also the fact that mostly anyone can do it if they put in the time and energy.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Anh! I appreciate your feedback. Affiliate marketing is my favorite as well. I feel like it is the most fun and effective, because you can really recommend great products that your audience can actually use. I’ve had my YouTube days I just felt like it was a lot of skilled work that I sort of lack. My other favorites are freelance services and selling your own products.

      Thanks for taking the time to read my page. If someone was new, I would first ask what their skills are. If they are graphic designers, writers, videographers, photographers, etc. If they have skills I would recommend feeelance route this is great for a second job and sometimes full time. Its quick and to the job. If its someone who is already a blogger and looking to monetize their blog or someone who is interested in starting their own profit generating business I always suggest affiliate marketing. Of course Wealthy Affiliate is the best place to learn how to get started there.

    Hi, which of these five ways have you personally found to be the most successful and promising? I don’t think an e-commerce store is for me, simply because I can not handle buying and selling all the inventory, even if it is not a real store. Youtube probably has a lot of competition too. Which of the remaining three do you think is best?

    • August 22, 2016 at 11:33 am

      I would say that Affiliate Marketing is the best. Its a long-term investment so it takes a while but is is the easiest to profit from in my opinion.

      thabks for your feedback and im glad you enjoyed

    I believe all of these takes time to make real money but that it is totally fine! Affiliate marketing, Youtube – both are great but it takes lots of effort. But if you like it, I believe it’s worth it.

    I like to watch many people on Youtube, some of them who have, for example, a million subscribers telling their stories how they got to a point where they are now. It took them YEARS of consistent work but they slowly kept growing from the beginning and now making lots of money and… loving what they do 🙂

    This keeps me going and motivated in affiliate marketing. I already made my first sale but I need many of them to make a living. So, still keep pushing 🙂


    • November 15, 2016 at 5:35 pm

      That is great! Awesome to hear you have already made your first sale. That helps you believe it is real and that if you keep grinding your only going to get more $$$.
