Ways To Make Money Online
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are many ways to make money online. There are also many scams where people charge you outrageous prices for online money making opportunities that have little or no chance of ever making any money. In this article I will discuss a few of the ways I have made money online as well as others, and offer my opinion on the best way to make money online.

My first online money making venture was selling things on eBay. I started with selling books I no longer needed as well as other things I owned that were just collecting dust. This still works today. You can still sell used items on eBay and turn them into cash. If you learn what sells well on eBay you can even go to garage sales and estate sales and buy things to resell for a profit on eBay. You can sometimes even make a profit on new items you find for a good discount in your local stores or online. People still do this and make a good amount of money at it. For me, the problem is that it is very time consuming. You need to write a detailed description for each item you want to list on eBay. You need to answer buyer questions and deal with buyer problems. You need to pack the item, ship it, and leave feedback for the buyer. All of this takes time, and unless you can find items you can resell for a good profit, it may not be worth the time you put into it.

Another way to make money online is to build websites or design graphics for other people or businesses. People will pay a lot of money if you design a good website for them. Graphic designers can also make a decent income. The problem with this is that you need to learn how to do it. To be a graphic designer you need to have some artistic talent and learn how to use the software that allows you to create the digital images and graphics. For web design you need a knowledge of html, css, and the ability to use html editors to make a site that is appealing to the user. Not everyone can do this.

You can become a writer and write content for websites. If you become good at this, you can make $10 or more per 400-500 word article. But even a novice can generally make a few dollars per article based on certain keywords. People are always looking for fresh content for their websites and to use in article directories. You can go to a site like or to offer your services. Again this can be time consuming, but many people make money doing this.

In my opinion, the best way to make money online is affiliate marketing. I have made far more money affiliate marketing than doing anything else. With affiliate marketing, you can write one article or build one blog or website and it can continue to pay you for years to come. Affiliate marketing is when you promote someone else's product or service and earn a commission whenever someone buys something based on your referral. You can earn commissions of up to 75% on some digital products. Or for physical products and services you can earn commissions like $50+ per cell phone activation, or $120+ per satellite TV installation to use just 2 examples. There is an affiliate program for almost any product or service imaginable. Even sites like Amazon, eBay, and Walmart will pay you commissions for promoting any of the thousands of products on their websites.

There are many ways to make money online. But in my opinion affiliate marketing is the best way. You can do work once and get paid commissions for years to come.
