How to make money online? (Long Term Methods)

When it comes to making money online you could either make some quick extra cash (like by selling your junk on eBay or watching few ads every day for $0.005) or you could build a long term reliable business.

I personally chose building a long term business and that’s what I’m gonna teach you in this post as well. Now since we’re talking about building a real business therefore you need to keep few things in mind:

First, it will take some time. Just like any other business, starting an online business will take some time as well. It’s not gonna happen overnight.

Second, some of the methods listed below will require you to invest some money. Please note that I personally make no representations or guarantees with respect to the accuracy of any of the methods listed below therefore do not spend any money whatsoever until you’re completely sure.
Third, you’re not gonna make huge amount of money in short period of time especially in the beginning. We’re talking about building a real business not gambling.

Now keeping these things in mind here are bunch of methods to make money online (long term).

1: Selling your own products or services:

The first method is selling your own products or services online. It could be either digital products like eBooks, courses, templates, software etc. or it could be physical products like dresses, tools etc.

This method has many advantages like; you have the full control over your product and marketing and this is the most profitable money making method in long term but…

There are many downsides of this method as well like; the start-up cost is very high, if you don’t have big audience or are not a big brand you’ll have a hard time selling and you’ll have to manage all the after sale services like delivery, complaints, refunds etc.

You can sell your products on your own website or you can sell them on sites like Amazon or eBay. If you have multiple products you can build your own online store as well using sites like Shopify. For selling digital products you can use sites like Gumroad or Sellfy.

2: Building a website and monetizing it:

Another method is building a website and monetizing it through advertisements to make money from it.

This method involves creating a site on a particular topic and making money from it using any ad services like Google Adsense or Bing ads or BuySellAds. You can also personally get advertisers if your site has a huge audience.

This method will allow you to make money passively i.e. you won’t have to constant work to earn money. Once you properly set-up a website and create a continuous stream of traffic coming to it, your site will continue to make money even if you don’t touch it for weeks.

Downside of this method is that it will take you a huge audience to make some decent money with this method since most ad networks don’t pay much money per click.

So until your blog has a massive readership you won’t make any satisfactory money with it.

3: Becoming a freelancer doing something you’re good at:

Another way to make money online is to become a freelancer at something you’re particular good at like; graphic designing or coding or writing.

You can either become an individual freelancer and get clients by cold calling ever business that you think might need your service or you can join online freelancing sites like UpWork or Freelancer and wait for clients to find you.

Big part of success with this method depends upon how good you are at your craft. If you do really good job you can get recurring clients and you can increase your charges.

Downside of this method is that it’d not gonna make you passive money. Unlike above methods here you’ll only get paid when you work and if you stop giving service you’ll stop generating money. You can make big money as a freelancer but you can’t make passive money.

4: Selling other people’s stuff as an affiliate:

Another way to make money online is to sell other people’s products and get a commission for every sale you generate. This is known as affiliate marketing and it is the most popular way of making money online.

Affiliate marketing has the maximum number of advantages and least risk. When affiliate marketing is combined with website monetization it produces highest profit and works passively.

Affiliate marketing does not require you to create a product but most affiliate programs offer 30%-70% commission that means you make equal or more money than the product owner for every sale you generate.

Affiliate marketing produces best results when combined with website monetization and email marketing. For instance 100K monthly visitors to your blog can generate $100 per day with advertisements but same amount of visitors can easily generate more than $1000 daily with affiliate marketing and it works passively.
