Here are five ways to make money online that are NOT scams.
Become a Writer – If you can string words and sentences together, there are many places you can make money online. You can either go through another company to find you work or you can find work on your own. Luckily, there are lots of places to find people who will pay you for content.
Flipping Websites – If you have a little money to invest and you know a little bit about the Internet, you can go to a website like Flippa and buy a website. After you put a little work into it, there’s a good chance you can re-sell it – for a profit. Just make sure you don’t buy one that needs a lot of work. You really need to know what you’re doing.
Selling Items – Whether you use the Amazon or eBay marketplace – or another one – if you can buy items at a low price locally and resell them online at a higher price, you’re going to be on your way to making money from home.
Mechanical Turk – People have mixed feelings about this website, but it’s a very easy way to find “mini-jobs” that may only take a few minutes to complete. The more you do, the more money you can make. The good news is that you don’t have to spend time looking for work.
Sell Your Services – Whether you work through a website like Fiverr.com or you set-up your own website to find clients, there are a variety of services you can sell online, including logo design, website design and more. Some people are able to make $20/hour or more doing this.
The biggest thing to remember is that you shouldn’t have to pay money in order to get a job. If someone tells you this, you should run away – fast! As long as you do your homework and are careful, there’s a good chance you can make quite a bit of money online at home in your spare time – without getting scammed.
