E-commerce

Whether you want to open a regular online store or start a dropshipping business, e-commerce has you covered.

Social Media

Facebook and Instagram are the two powerhouses of social media when it comes to business. Of course, if you are promoting your website or something else, the more channels you use, the higher your chances of success. But as far as working with social media goes, these are the ones to focus on.

You can pick two routes with Facebook. The first one would be starting a page and trying to gather as many likes as you can. Once a certain number is reached and your engagement rate is great, you can start monetizing the page. Another method is Facebook ads, a big part of internet marketing these days.

Instagram should be obvious, though you will need to find something to get people to follow you and like your photos.

Virtual Assistants

There are quite a few freelancer websites out there which offer plenty of gigs to those who do not have a particular talent with computers. Simple jobs such as data entry are available if you know where to look for them.

Video Editing

Learning how to make videos more appealing could lead to a lot of great things. More and more YouTubers are hiring professional video editors and focus on other things, such as marketing and making deals with sponsors. Content is half the work because editing is that important. Videos are one of the mediums that have been around for years and it will continue to stay that way. You will not go wrong by choosing this method.

Affiliate Marketing

The method might seem a bit unconventional these days, but it continues to be one of the more profitable out of what is available. The idea is pretty simple. You find a company that offers an affiliate program, such as Amazon or ClickBank, get a channel where you can promote the product (websites are usually the best), and drive traffic hoping that people will click on your link. You will get a commission for every sale that will happen from a person who reached the selling website by clicking your link.

Writing

If you have a way with words, consider starting a blog or becoming self-published on Amazon. E-books are selling like crazy these days, and there are genres that you have not imagined (dinosaur erotica, for instance). The point is that pretty much everything sells if done in an interesting way.

And if you are not interested in this sort of writing, copywriting could also be a great option.

Become a Twitch TV Streamer

Visit Twitch TV and you will see that there are hundreds of people playing video games and streaming it. But how do they make money? Pretty simple. It is either donations or sponsorship deals. You will need to get some followers before monetizing the channel, though. But hey, if you love playing video games, then it should be a no-brainer.

To sum everything up, if you are looking to get started making money online, these ideas should be a push in the right direction. Finally, if you do not manage to make one thing work, move on to the next until you find that one method which was made for you.
