4 Important Ways to Earn Money Online

Who doesn’t want to earn some extra money? Maybe you need more money to buy the clothes you always wanted. Or maybe you want to eat whatever you want and not always choose the cheapest.

There are endless possibilities nowadays to earn money online. Why earn money online? Well for me that is a simple question, I want to choose the place and the time I want to work. On the one hand that helps me escaping the boring 9-5 principle and on the other side I don’t loose a lot time being stucked in traffic.

But if you google “earn money online” you get over 282 million results. That looks like a lot of different possibilities to me. And there are many different systems or programs out there who want to help you to earn money online.

I tried many different things, some with more success than others. So I want to share my experience with you and help you to earn some extra money online.


You can get paid by writing blog articles, translating documents or creating logos or designs. There are many different projects you can work on as a freelancer. There are also projects for developers. Whatever it is I’m sure you can find something here.

You can get paid by hours or you get a budget for the project. This is a great opportunity for people who want to be self-employed and their own boss. It is also a great opportunity for people who want to have a logo designed or an article written.

Create your own product

You can also create your own product and sell it online. That can be a digital product like a pdf or a video or a physical product like a sweater or beer.

Usually creating a physical product is more expensive and risky. You need to find someone who produces and your product and if no one buys your product your investment is thrown away. Also you need to take care of the shipping and the support etc.

Creating a digital product can get you good money in a short amount of time. But still you need to create the product and take care of the marketing. If you already have experience with marketing and selling stuff this can be a great opportunity for you.

Affiliate Marketing

If you don’t want to create your own product you can also get paid by selling products from partners. Every time you sell the product you get a commission. This can range from 5% up to 80%. And there are affiliate programs everywhere. Even amazon has an affiliate program.

Affiliate marketing can be very powerful. Think about it, what are you doing before you buy a product. You read the ratings on amazon and you search the web for reviews. If you find a review with a postive evaluation you are gonna buy the product.

If that review was written by you and the customer buys the book you get a commission. The commission from a sold book may be not that high but think about how many books are sold every day. And think about how many people are searching for recommendations. There is really a huge market here!


You can also start earning money with a blog. All you need is traffic and some strategy to earn money. Strategies can be advertisement or affiliate marketing.

But the most important thing is traffic. There are many different ways to get traffic but you need some quality content so that the traffic stays on your side and comes back. So you need well written can content rich articles your audience likes.

These are only four different possibilities. And I think you can guess that there are many more. But for me these are the most important and also legal ways to earn money online.

I hope you now have an overview how to earn money online. Maybe earning money online is the right thing for you.

I know it is the right thing for me. Building on my own business, being my own boss and earning solid money. These are all reasons for me to stay in online marketing and maybe you also want to give it a try. (see here my #1 recommendation) .
