Do people really make money online seems to be a common question you see in forums and message boards on the internet. The answer is a resounding, “Yes they do!” That, in fact, is one of the biggest factors that has made the internet grow so quickly. Coupled with the widespread sharing of knowledge, the internet as a global marketplace in which to do business has literally shrunk the vast distances that previously separated peoples on opposite ends of the globe. People really make money online, and it can be done in almost a countless number of ways.

Several ways that people really make money online are: selling their own physical products, writing and selling reports or ebooks on popular subjects, publishing and selling their own physical books, flipping websites, doing freelance work, and selling advertising space.

People really make money online by selling items on sites such as eBay or Etsy. Anything from household items to gardening tools to antique dolls to genuine Japanese chopsticks can be offered up for bids on eBay. This was one of the first very big marketplaces to find plenty of buyers and sellers for almost every item under the sun that you could possibly think of, and people really make money online doing this. Etsy is another marketplace, teeming with anxious sellers and eager buyers. It revolves mostly around handmade, crafty type items, but services can also be offered there. There are many loyal Etsy shoppers eager to find their favorite handmade goods and yes, people really make money online selling their handmade treasures on Etsy.

Any online niche or topic you can possibly think of has someone writing and selling their reports or ebooks on that subject. From how to take care of your pet hamster to why won’t my baby sleep at night to how to get found on the front page of google, there isn’t a topic that you can’t write a report or eBook for and then sell it to the hungry crowds who are eager to get their hands on that information. So eager, that they will be very willing to buy it. And yes, people really make money online by writing and selling their own reports and ebooks.

Another avenue open to selling ebooks are ebook reader companies like Kindle. There are writers who can get their stories formatted and accepted in no time and be making money from each sale of their ebook on Kindle. People really make money online doing this, some a little here and there in their spare time, and some people on a much bigger scale. Nothing beats residual income. Once the book is written and starts to sell, the writer can sit back and collect the profits. It may sound almost too good to be true, but people really make money online writing ebooks for Kindle.

For those who love to write, and are fairly good at it, the days of having to be accepted by a publishing company and putting forth huge sums of money to print books are over. People really make money online by self-publishing their own written books. Companies like Lulu or Amazon will market these books and you can enjoy the once out-of-reach fame of being a published author.
