Many people dream of becoming their own boss and working their own hours. While one choice is to start a traditional business, most ordinary folks lack both the know-how, desire, and the initial capital required to start a business, so even if they have a great idea then their idea will not come to fruition. However, the advent of the internet has resulted in many ways for people to make money online without ever having a boss. I have been in online marketing for years so I will share a few ways with you:
Infolinks: Make a blog and use ads
Millions of people have blogs but they do not know how to make money off of them. Perhaps not many people read them or perhaps they blog not for money but because they are passionate about their topic. I have blogged for years and have become a blog monetization expert in the process, so I will share three great ways that you can make money by blogging. Companies like Infolinks, Kontera, and INTENTclick are great choices to make money off of text-rich blogs. They do not work as well with video blogs but you can still put their ads in the description. Also, INTENTclick and Kontera do not mess up your Adsense ads, so they are a great choice for generating additional revenue.
Create a mobile app
Android devices and iPhones are becoming increasingly popular, and the ease of writing and selling an app has brought a resurgence of small-time software developers. Many of these developers have great apps but they do not know how to monetize mobile apps, which is marketing parlance for saying that they don’t know how to make money off of their creations. This is common among mobile app developers in part because it’s so easy to bring an app to the market to sell it since all the big operating systems have mobile app stores.
Write 5 guest blog posts per day
Many companies will pay people quite well to write blog posts for them. They do this because the backlinks in those posts will bring them in targeted traffic and help them show up higher on search engines. A lot of companies rely on outsourced work, usually in India or the Philippines, to do their blogging for them, but these bloggers usually do not have the writing skills to be published on good websites. As a result, they’ll pay a premium to American and other anglophone writers to write posts for them. Just 5 posts per day could bring you well over $3,000 per month – depending on your skill set.
