How To Make Money Online Free

Last Update: June 16, 2018

Have you been wondering how to make money online free? I sure did wonder for a very long time until I bumped into WA. You see, every other blog out there keeps feeding you with a lot of baseless information only to disappoint you in the end with a “spammy” affiliate link. And in most cases, these links demand payment before you can join the programs. This article is geared to help you earn income online for free. For starters, let me answer one of the most common questions:

Can I Make Money Online?

Absolutely! Why not? The likes of Brian Dean (SEO guru), Timothy Sykes (Stock market affiliate), Bamidele Onibalusi (Content writing guru), and several others have all made it in different niches. But let me make something clear, it takes patience and a lot of continuous learning to finally understand how to make money online free. Let this article be your eye-opener, but the learning doesn’t stop here. Join the team at Wealthy Affiliate (WA) for several live video lessons, live chats, live events, free resources, and much more. You’ll thank me later.

6 Legit Work From Home Jobs

In the wake of new technology era, many companies are laying off human employees and embracing robots and intelligent software. As such, new entrants into the employment market are not lucky either. This is why you need to think of how to make money online from home. Here is a list of some online gigs that you could try.

1. Affiliate Marketing

This definitely lands in position one on my list because it doesn’t require any prior skills, money, or expertise. You only need to identify your favorite niche, find programs or products to promote, enroll in a few online affiliate courses (including YouTube videos) and you’re on your way to earning. How fast you start earning and how much depends on your overall input and grasp of the concept among other factors.

2. Dropshipping or Your Own Online Store

If you’d rather promote your own products, how about starting an online store? This will require a little capital to facilitate product sourcing. However, you do not need a physical store or initial inventory to get started. That’s where drop shipping comes in. The key considerations should be your source of products, target customers, and delivery options.

90% of drop-shipping agents source their products from China. Alibaba, Ali express, and made-in-china.com all provide a wide range of Chinese suppliers to source from. Amazon, eBay, and other online retail stores provide potential platforms to connect with clients. However, if you own the store, you’re not limited to the products to sell. You can sell customized goods, artwork, photos, recipes and anything else you can think of. But, from my experience, narrowing down to a small niche gives your e-store better income and repeat customers.

3. Online Tutoring, Courses, and E books

Are you good at explaining concepts? Websites like Udemy and Lynda are looking for tutors like you. If you are an elementary teacher, sign up with VIPKID and DaDaABC and start teaching little Chinese kids English. If you have limited time, draft a well-thought-out course and sell in websites like Click4Course and digital chalk.

EBooks on the other hand form a reliable source of passive income. Publish your eBook on Amazon Kindle and NOOK Press for a start and with time, advance to even more online eBook stores. With time, publish hard copies, patent your writing, and distribute to local stores. You’ll be surprised at how well readers appreciate well-written books.


4. Google AdSense

If you have an established blog with steady traffic, apply to Google AdSense monetization. The program runs different Google Ads on your website depending on your visitors’ geographic location, and online shopping pattern (plus other factors). And if any of your visitors click the AD, you get paid. It’s that simple.

Depending on your niche, AdSense can be very profitable. It gets better when you combine it with a different income generating task. If you choose this option, organize your Ads to run neatly on your website to avoid turning off potential customers.

5. Freelancing

There are unlimited tasks you can master as a freelancer. These include; copy writing, transcription, academic writing, logo design, web design, social media marketing, virtual assistant, and many more. The list under this category is endless. Think of what you enjoy doing and make some income doing it. For example, if you are a neat person who enjoys organizing and pre-planning, a VA role would be ideal for you.

Online platforms where you can earn money as a freelancer include content mills, third-party platforms such as Fiverr and Upwork, social media as well as direct pitching to potential clients. added with information, this website is very user-friendly and interactive. On the home page, you have access to the dashboard, followed by the training, websites, live events, research, live chat, and the help icons.

6. Ad Clicking and Online Survey Jobs

This category is the least paying make money online home jobs. You earn between a few cents to a few dollars per ad or survey. I mentioned these jobs because they don’t take much of your time and you also don’t need to have any unique skills.

The top Ad clicking websites include ClixSense and NeoBbux while the top survey websites include Swagbucks, MySurvey, and Ipsos i-Say. Some online survey companies like Toluna let you test products and review them, and then you keep the product. So despite the low payouts, it’s a win-win situation, right?

Nice post:). I actually learned some other ways to create revenue!! I already use Swagbucks, which has been such a blessing in that it pays some of my grocery expenses!

I'm a former elementary education teacher, so I think I'll try one of the websites you listed and start teaching kids English! That's right up my alley:). Thank you so much for such an informative post!
Blessings:)

Good Morning Johann,

It has been quite awhile since the last time I saw you here. Hope all is going well in Iceland. That was a good and long post you wrote, thank you for that.
Here the warm weather has started, around 30C, still nice but not working outside at midday, that is too hot.

Greetings from the south of Spain, Taetske

Nice to see you again and thank you.

It took time for the summer to come but it´s ok now, around 10C. Today it´s to National day which starts actually yesterday when we played for first time in the World Cup finals in football against brilliant Argentina. 1-1 by the way to the goal to go to the playoffs is strong. Almost all shops were closed and almost no wedding and funeral (which is normally a lot of on Saturday). Except for 2 weddings, must have been foreigners, and the priest was ready with 2 speeches, one if we got 1 or 3 points of the game and one if we didn´t!

Have a great time!
