The online world is a busy place. There are about 3.2 billion people online in today’s world and it’s predicted to hit about 4 billion by just 2020. The good news about this, is that there’s 3.2 billion potential customers just a few clicks away. Sure, you can gamble online on the football or sell your old clothes on eBay to make a quick buck, but if you’re looking to make some sustainable and serious cash, here's my Top 3 ways to make money online in 2018.
1. Become an affiliate marketer
An affiliate marketer basically advertises and promotes other people’s/businesses products. In return for their advertisement of the product, the affiliate gets a percentage of the sale, whenever the buyer clicks on their sales link. This is particularly easy to start doing because you don’t need your own product or ideas, just promote someone else’s.
If you want to get into this, then a huge advantage is already having an online presence. Platforms like Instagram, YouTube or a blogging site are great for promotion. Think of your favorite Instagram personalities or YouTube stars. I can almost guarantee that their getting a cut of the sale each time you click on a link to a product they promote or suggest.
The best part of being an affiliate is that it’s generally free to sign up to do it. If you want to find an affiliate program, simply google the product/business your interested in promoting. Chances are there’s a program out there for it. Check out Amazon, Clickbank and GiddyUp. They are probably the biggest three programs out there.
2. Publish books on Kindle
Publishing a book sounds like a daunting task doesn’t it? In reality it’s not and it can be done in as little as an hour. Kindle is an online book store operated by Amazon. You purchase books online through the site. The books usually cost between 0.99 cents and $10 and anyone can publish a book here. Users download the book and read it on their computer via the Amazon Cloud application or on a table device that’s called a Kindle.
If you have particular knowledge on a subject or niche that people would find value in reading about, then make a book about it. It can be about anything. How to loose weight, how to give your dog a haircut, how to design a website, how to improve your golf swing. You can also write fiction if you are particularly creative.
All you need to do its write your text on your computer (about 6000 words is a decent amount) and format it, so it reads well with relevant headings and chapters. Create an attractive cover (you can outsource this for cheap on websites like fiverr.com and create an account on Amazon. Then fill out your tax information, copyright settings, royalties and the price. After that, hit publish. It’s as simple as that and a great form of passive income.
3. Become an Amazon FBA seller
The Amazon FBA (Fulfilment by Amazon) program makes selling products online super simple. You basically find a product that you want to sell. This could be buying a yoga matt from your local department store for cheap or finding a generic wrist watch being made in a factory in China. You then just have to arrange to get the product shipped to an Amazon warehouse (Amazon can also do this for you for a shipping fee). The product gets stored in the warehouse and when the product is sold, Amazon collects a percentage of the sale and ships it out for you.
This is providing to be an extremely popular means of making money online today because you don’t have to worry about having space to store the product or the hassle of shipping it to your customer, Amazon does it for you. The benefits of selling with Amazon is that it’s a big company. How big? The 4th biggest in the world with a 701 billion US market cap.
Selling with a big company means they can have a huge reach of customers and can offer them benefits that benefit you. Buyers who are signed up to Amazons Prime program can get offers like free shipping, even 2 hour delivery on selected items. Orders shipped with Amazon Prime also have free returns, meaning that the customer can have confidence in the purchase. Having a major company doing a lot of the heavy lifting for you makes selling online easier than ever before.
