3 Quick Ways To Make Money Online

One very popular way to escape the 9-to-5 drudgery is to work from home. This is the hopes and dreams of so many people who find the concept of working from the comfort of their home and being more in control of their life and lifestyle extremely appealing.

Whilst searching on the internet I discovered the following 3 quick ways to start making money online.
Let me share them with you below.


1. Flip domain names. Domain names are valuable internet real estate and some people actually make a nice living off of buying and selling them. One strategy is to use Google Adwords to find keywords that are trending and use that information to buy domain names that you think may soon be in demand. However, since short, snappy, or straightforward domain names have already been mostly snatched up, you can also get lucky buying domain names that are random acronyms, as you never know when a person or company with those exact initials will decide to set up a website. (CPC.com, for example, sold for over $200,000 when Contract Pharmaceutical Corporation decided to go online. Not bad for three letters.)

2. Enter contests. Since you won’t get paid unless your entry wins, search for a wide range of free contests in a field where you’re already have a lot of possible entries (ex. photos, logo-making, background design) and submit your work to as many places as will have you. It might take a day to get through all of them, but even a few small successes (or, preferably, a great big one) will make up for it. The experience might even steer you in a new creative direction.

3. Become an affiliate marketer. This is a great way to make money for promoting someone else’s products or services without having to carry any inventory. Affiliate advertisements are usually incorporated into your website/blog/page via linked articles (great when your content is strong and compelling, but must be done carefully to avoid looking spammy), product-placement videos (great if you’re funny or have performance talent), or, less and less commonly, banner ads (pretty ineffective, as most people avoid these like the plague). If necessary, you can also become an affiliate marketer without a website (by posting videos on YouTube containing links to the product, for example). Check out a site like Commission Junction for possible products and services.

  • If you have a lot of traffic, you might want to do cost-per-click advertising, which doesn’t earn you much per click but banks on the fact that the sheer number of visitors will build your revenue.

  • If you have very strong content, you might want to do cost-per-acquisition advertising, which makes you a decent commission (either a fixed amount or a commission, depending on what you’ve pre-agreed to) every time someone on your site makes a purchase with your affiliate company.

  1. I’ve actually won quite a few things over the years from online-sweepstakes.com! Their contest listing is very extensive and has everything from simple form entries to more elaborate projects requiring video entries and more. 99designs.com is a popular contest platform for designers, but I don’t have any experience with it personally. I imagine this could be ideal if you’re just starting out as a designer because you could use your entries to build a portfolio, as well as hopefully win contests! That would be great to add to your resume, and could provide some networking opportunities as well. Just be sure you’re not paying anything to enter contests!

    • Ariel thanks for visiting my blog and for your interesting comment. I have never been a sweepstakes customer but I can see that you have had some success with them so that’s great. There are so many contests online these days and to be perfectly honest I am not that interested in that sort of money making venture. But great to find someone who has made a success of this and good luck with your future entries.
