In this article, we will know 30 great and legitimate ways to make money online which will be free, easy and fast. There are several ways through which if you want to make money you can, because “if there is will there is a way”. So keeping that belief in mind I am going to share with you 30 legitimate ways of online money making process.
1. Become An Amazon Associate:
To become a successful amazon associate, you will need a very popular SEO friendly website or blog. First of all, you will have to open an Amazon associate account but if you already have an account then you can log in into that or you can open a separate account for doing this job. Then add the links of any products from the website of Amazon to your website along with your affiliate id, and whenever there will be clicks or purchase through that link you will receive a commission against that. It is very easy and free to make money with Amazon.
2. Sell Your Products Or Items On EBay Or A Similar Outlet:
Selling products on eBay is also a good way of making money online. For that, you will have to open an account over there and will have to list your selling products or items over their selective categories. And whenever there will be any sell they will notify that through email or SMS. For creating an account, they do not require any fees. When you will list products or any sale occurred they will take a commission out of that listed product value.
3. Create a High Quality Portfolio Site.
It goes without saying that one of the best ways to demonstrate your technical skills is by having an amazing portfolio site of your own. If you want to be taken seriously as a new freelancer, you’re going to need a website that:
- Showcases your expertise.
- Highlights relevant past experiences.
- Shows who you are.
- Includes your contact information so that potential clients can easily find you.
Plus, a stellar portfolio can really help you out if you don’t have a lot of job experience to prove that you know your stuff. (Read more about that here: How to Get Hired in Tech With No Experience.)
The purpose of your portfolio is to educate, spark interest, and convince potential clients that they’ll want to choose you for their technical needs. That’s why it’s worth investing time into deciding what to feature on your portfolio and how it’s being displayed—before you start looking for new projects.
Once your portfolio site is up, start including a link to the site within your email signature and on your social profiles.
4. Promote the Products and Services You Use
When you’re comfortable with promotion and understand which kinds of products your readers will purchase, look into better affiliate programs. A commission of around 50% for higher-priced products or packages is not uncommon.
But you probably don’t want to just pick random products. I’ve found the best affiliate opportunities to be the products I’m already using.
“My golden rule,” says Lizard, “is to only share an affiliate link for things that I would’ve shared anyway, even if there were no affiliate program and no potential income in it for me.”
As you learn more about your niche, you’ll probably read books, follow blogs, participate in courses and join a membership community or two. Can you make a commission for recommending these to others trying to learn the same things?
Often, the person selling these products will make it easy for you to sign up as affiliate. Who better to promote their offer than someone who already uses (and, hopefully, enjoys) it?
As Lizard puts it, “The fact that I could earn a little money from the promotion is just a nice bonus.”

HOW MUCH CAN YOU EARN BLOGGING?
Whether you’re looking to supplement your income with a little extra to pay for a few nice treats or create a blog that will support your lifestyle then you can pretty much make as much money as you like from blogging if you are prepared to put in the hard work.
There are lots of great stories out there of successful bloggers who make money blogging:
For example over the past couple of years, husband and wife team, Bjork and Lindsay at PinchofYum.com, a food and recipe blog, have built up a huge following and some months they have made nearly $25k.
Another blogging couple, Yeison and Samantha, who run mytanfeet.com are making over $5k per month while they travel the world and share their photos and stories on their blog.
I’m not going to lie to you but it can take months even years before you might see a significant return on the time you invest in to starting a blog but that is why I have created this free guide so that you can be confident in taking the right steps to achieving your blogging goals.
So let’s continue…
HOW TO PICK A PROFITABLE BLOG NICHE
This is the most critical step. Seriously.
There is no point in starting a blog that you want to make money from without a plan. There are thousands, even hundreds of niches out there. Some are broad and huge; some are small and virtually unknown. Some niches are easier to make money in than others.
This is why your research is important.
A good place to start when you are picking a niche is to look at your own interests in Google.
For example I really launched a blog in the survivalist niche a couple of years ago which I sold for a great profit. The reason I created this blog was that I enjoy being outdoors, hiking and mountain biking etc. I also watch a lot of TV shows about people like Bear Grylls and Ray Mears.
I’m no expert but it’s something I like.
One area I never really got into with my survivalist blog and wanted to was Everyday Carry. Most people will have never heard of this concept but it really is an interesting sub-niche with in this niche. Everyday Carry is basically any items you can’t leave the house with.
If you travel a lot for work you may have a laptop or tablet with you.
If you work on a construction site you may have a tool belt.
Can you really make money blogging and turning your personal passions, knowledge, or experience into a real income on the internet?
Close to a decade after the Wall Street meltdown, people are still finding it tough to recover past losses and make ends meet. Fewer and fewer of us can count on steady, lifelong employment, and for those who are so fortunate, the salary and benefits (if any) are barely enough to meet our basic needs.
Second job, anyone? In America, two-income families are the norm, but think of the havoc it wrecks on your daily life. You’re so exhausted by the time you get home from work, you barely have enough time and energy to make dinner and help the kids out with their homework. Even that becomes difficult if you work at more than one place, whether evenings or on weekends.
It’s no surprise that more and more people are looking for information on how to start an online business to generate extra income (or even full-time income) on the internet.
The Internet has made blogging mainstream, to the point where there may be over half a billion blogs online as you read this article. While income generation is not the only reason (or even the best reason) to blog, opportunities do exist for people to create supplemental income with a blog.
If you are new to blogging or have just recently started a blog, congratulations!
I hope your main motivation is to provide valuable content for your readers because that’s how you will establish expert status in your niche in the long-term.
However, there is nothing wrong with making some extra money through blogging and several simple methods exist for getting the ball rolling.
It should go without saying that in order to make money with a blog it’s best to start off by choosing a profitable niche market; something where there is a proven marketplace that intersects with your own passions, interests, and expertise.
Once you’ve done that, it’s just a matter of getting website traffic, building your email subscriber list, and making money online via any of these proven methods outlined below.
1. Google Adsense
Google Adsense might be the fastest and easiest way for a beginner to start earning passive income with a blog. The basic ideas behind Adsense is that you can display Google Ads on your website and when a visitor clicks on those ads you get a percentage of the ad costs.
Adsense is a contextual advertising network that places partner (business) ads on your website. It’s easy to set up—all you have to do is copy and paste some code given to you from Google in the places you’d like the ads to appear on your website. Google will then show ads from advertisers that are a match to the content on your website so that ideally your website visitors are seeing relevant ads.
Don’t worry that your blog niche won’t be able to draw quality ads to your site. Google Adsense is one of the biggest networks on the Web, so you should get a healthy enough list of clickable sites to attract your readership.
Just make sure your content is of the highest quality!
Though Adsense is a popular option, I think that affiliate information marketing is also an excellent way to make virtually passive income online.
2. Amazon Associates
Amazon Associates is the long established in-house affiliate program run by Seattle-based Amazon.com—the biggest online retailer in the world today. It offers bloggers the chance to earn commissions by advertising Amazon products on your website—provided visitors click-through from your blog to Amazon.com and make a purchase.
The basic idea with Amazon Associates is that you can get a tracking link that is unique to you that links to any product sold on Amazon.com. If someone clicks on the link on your blog and goes back to Amazon and purchases the item, you are credited with the sale.
There are many ways you can promote Amazon products on your website. You could include a product catalog (pulled from Amazon.com) on your blog, you can write product reviews and link to the products you recommend on Amazon, and you can have a recommended resources page on your website; just to name a few.
The one caveat about Associates is that it probably suits bloggers who write about merchandising, retail products and shopping a fair bit. Logically, it will help your performance if visitors arrive at your website already predisposed to buying.
The program works by getting Amazon links, banners, or widgets (e.g. slideshows, ‘My Favorites’, ‘Wish List Widget’) onto your pages.
One added benefit is that if someone clicks on a link from your website to Amazon and ends up buying multiple items (not just the item you are promoting) then you would get credit for the entire sale!
