“What is the easiest way to make money online?” is one of the most frequently asked questions I get. In the past I’ve always said affiliate marketing. Then I go on to tell people why I think affiliate marketing is the easiest way to make money online. But I have to admit that there is an easier way for most people to get started making money online.
From now on the answer to that question will be “selling your service” is the easiest way to make money online. Here’s what I mean. There are lots of websites that are set up for people to offer their services for sale online. I have three favorites:
Just recently Elance and Odesk merged so they may become one site at some point. At any rate all of these sites are set up so that you can register and offer your services and then someone hires you and you get paid. Everyone has some skills or talents that the already have and can offer on at least one of these sites.
Maybe you are an ok writer so you can offer to write research or SEO articles. You may have some programming or coding skills so you can offer that. You may have some artistic talent or photography skills. All of these are things that people will pay money for help and they come to these sites all the time looking to hire.
Personally I use Elance to buy articles. I go to ODesk when I need to buy some programming work and I go to Fiverr for well …just about anything you can think of. If you don’t think you have something that people would pay for go to Fiverr.com right now. Take a look at what people are offering. Here is a picture of the home page as I’m writing this.
Look at the range of things being offered: Voice overs, photo editing, accordion player, face decal, paper flowers, buttons and tattoo messages! Surely you have some talent to add to this list. Plus you are only charging $5 so you don’t have to be great at it.
Personally, I don’t have any artistic talent as you can tell from this blog post. But I like setting up websites and doing things like that. So I posted a job that I would host a website and install a wordpress blog for $5 since I do that stuff already. I just did it as a test for this post and I got two jobs already.
That’s $10/day and could happen 7 days a week. That adds up to the $50-$70 a week that so many of you have asked me to help you start making online.
So this really is the easiest way to make money online. Go and sign up with these sites and offer your services. You will get some jobs and start to make some cash yo can put back into your online business.
By the way if you want me to host your website and set up your blog for $5 I will. Just let me know at email@example.com You will have to buy your own domain name but I can help with that as well. Let me know.
