There are thousands of ways to make money, be it offline or online, It is only a matter of deciding which method you want to use. Today I’m going to list my Top 3 ways to make money online.
The best place to start is where your passion and knowledge are best used.
Hobbies, for instance, will keep you motivated because you are passionate about it and you have the knowledge. And, if you can write, then the world is your oyster.
Sport, If you are passionate about archery, cross-country running, scuba diving, you can make some money online from your “niche” knowledge. Something you like doing or participating in will keep you moving forward.
As entrepreneurs, you are a specialist in whatever niche you are in. With professional and informative blog posts, you can turn that expertise into money.
Once your blog has a certain reach and reputation, it may be interesting for external companies to advertise.
The principle works like a magazine. You continue to write your own contributions, next to which then the advertising of a company or various companies appears.
For the fact that they are allowed to advertise on your blog, companies and manufacturers pay you money.
But always make sure that the switched advertising in accordance with your company principles. You must make sure you read all the terms and conditions set out for each advertiser you choose to use as fees differ greatly.

Write and publish your own e-book.
Publishing your own e-book is easier today than ever. Because you no longer necessarily need a publisher to whom you have to send your manuscript – and then wait for it to be thoroughly examined before the publisher decides whether to publish it.
Take Kindle for instance, I know someone who has built a nice little niche in short children stories. He writes the books and publishes them on Kindle.
All on the same platform and you only need to write and publish one book and it sells for years.
Self-publishing allows you to publish and distribute your e-book online. You will then receive money for every copy sold.
Before deciding on a self-publishing provider, it is important to compare the different offers, because the conditions are very different.
While some vendors will do the marketing for you, or your e-book will automatically be available through large online portals, you’ll have to take the marketing completely out of the hands of others. This isn’t an issue with a lot of the publishers though.
First and foremost, compare what proportion of sales of books you receive. Once again, these differ overall so due diligence and common sense prevail.

If you regularly have a lot of visitors on your website or blog, affiliate links can be worthwhile for you.
This means that you include links to the products or services of your advertising partners on your website. If the website visitor then purchases the product of the advertising partner, you will receive a commission.
Matching affiliate partners can be found through various affiliate networks such as affilinet. But also trade fair visits or networking via social media will help you with the search.

These methods are my Top 3 ways to make money online. You can use any or all of these methods to help build yourself a tidy little income online from your input and knowledge.
What I really like about these methods are the fact that you will enjoy doing it because you are making money. Making some easy money online makes life a little easier. It also gives you a little more time for leisure activities and time with family.
Once that happens, you can start to scale things up to increase your revenue and develop more income streams. Selling items on your website or blog that are relevant to your niche or hobby will bring in a commission for every unit sold through your blog or website.
Take for example scuba diving, you could sell breathing sets by writing a review about your experience using a particular brand of breathing sets. How it performed, were there any problems, did it have auxiliary option, was it robust and up to the job. Was it fit for purpose and would you advise to buy the product.
You could sell manuals, wet suits, dry suits, flippers, masks, goggles, snorkels, safety equipment. Anything you use or recommend then you can write a review about it and sell it through affiliate linking.
This includes any type of hobby or pastime that you might enjoy doing. Modeling, remote control toys, sailing, golf. The list is endless if you put your mind to it.
If you like writing and telling stories, you might consider Kindle as your platform to write, publish and sell all in the same place. We were all born with at least one kind of book inside us.
What would you write about? maybe a short funny story that kids would love to hear about, maybe you love scuba diving, you could write a story about one of your experiences during a diving expedition.
You could also publish your books for sale on your blog or website through your kindle affiliate link.
You could also put affiliate links for your products for sale and links to your website or blog inside your Kindle books to get more exposure. Exposure, of course, means more readers, clients and buyers which will lead to more sales and revenue.
To sum it all up.
When you have decided which route you will take during the start of your journey, you must take the steps forward before you can go anywhere, this means taking action.
