Here are 7 ways to earn money online

One of the main advantages of living in this era is that there are way more employment opportunities than ever before. Today, we don’t even have to go to the office to do our work and there are plenty of gigs you can find online to make money while being at home. Truth be told, there are both pros and cons when it comes to this working arrangement, but it is overall a good thing. We can have a more flexible working schedule, get multiple part-time jobs, or simply build a safety net, in case we stumble on our own career path. Here we will go over several ways on how you can make money from home. 

Affiliate Marketing

We are living in a middle-man culture where we don’t need to own or store goods, but can easily reap the benefits of selling them. This is thanks to the affiliate marketing programs that many big companies have in place. The best thing about it is that you are not re-selling or marking up the price for these goods, you are simply getting a small portion of funds for helping the company make a sale.


Bear in mind though that this isn’t as easy as it sounds, and it is something that influencers typically do. In other words, this is a great revenue boost if you already have an audience that reads your blog or watches your videos and streams. The reason why it is so attractive is that it can be a passive source of income, provided you already are in a business that is compatible with this niche.

Online Gambling

Gambling should never be used as means of stable income or as a replacement for a job. That being said, you can make money, or use it to help you make money indirectly. For starters, you can take advantage of an incredible number of online casinos that are out there. Many operators offer free signup bonus without deposit for first-time users. Basically, you get to play on slot machines and other cash games, and potentially win money without making a single deposit. So, you can burn through those bonuses and see if you will end up winning some cash, or you can do something even smarter. Create a video or a blog where you review that operator and use that bonus to make your content more authentic. Additionally, if the operator has an affiliate program, use it in your content to earn by recruiting more users.

Selling or Drop Shipping 

You can always sell your merchandise or used items on sites like eBay and Amazon, as this is a solid side-hustle. Just make sure you enter a quality description and use adequate meta tags to make your product more visible. Alternatively, you can start a dropshipping operation, which is something many people did, and take advantage of poorly optimized eCommerce sites.


Blogging is a good way to build your portfolio in case you plan to be a writer. Moreover, you can do affiliate marketing or simply create your own audience. So long as you have some valuable insight that you can offer to your readers, blogging can be an incredibly lucrative gig.

YouTube Videos or Twitch Streams

One of the best ways to monetize your passion is to create videos and upload them on YouTube. You can also use other sites like TikTok and Instagram, to once again increase the number of your viewers. If you love to play online games, or simply want to entertain people for hours, you can always use Twitch and create your own stream.

Learn to Code and Work on Apps

There are programming languages that won’t take too long to learn, and that you can later use to create web-based or phone apps. There are sites where you can sell this code, even if it is not finished, and many companies are looking to cut back on development time for their in-house apps, so they might just buy these apps from you.

Write E-books

You can find a ton of jobs on freelancing platforms if you are a good book writer, and you can also sell your own e-books. Once again this can be a good option for passive income, but it’s not as easy as it looks, and the market is really competitive.


These were some of the main ways you can make money online without having to work a 9 to 5 job. Hopefully, some of these tips will inspire you, and help you come up with your own plan on how to create additional sources of revenue, using things that you have or things that you know.
