10 Ways to Earn Money Online and Become Rich оn the Internet

If you are reading this line, chances are the idea of making money online has been bother-ing you for quite a while. Perhaps, you have already read tons of articles on this topic (the web is literally speckling with them). Maybe, this is the first article you came across. Anyway, if you are here, you need the answers. If so, we are happy to offer you our version of top 10 ways to earn money online.

All of these methods can be divided into 3 general groups.

  • You can earn money by launching your online store and selling different things and services.
  • You can make money using your professional skills: write articles, teach, write and sell music, translate texts, sell your photos, etc.
  • You can take part in different web projects and campaigns offering some good prizes or money rewards.


We are not going to talk much about the first option, as it is quite clear and those who choose it usually know what to do. In general, you will need to have a website launched and choose the area you want to get involved in. But this is, of course, an oversimplified description. In effect, it is a little bit more complicated and you need to know loads of details, the laws of the web, Google policy, SEO principles etc. You should be ready to devote quite a lot of time to your online store — at least in the first instance.

In this article, we will take a closer look at the other 2 categories as the possibilities here are really endless, and you shouldn’t even possess any special knowledge to earn money. So, here are the 10 ways to become rich online.

  1. Blogging

bloggingProfessional blogging is one of the best and most reliable ways of earning money online. It offers dozens of opportunities, it doesn’t cost much, and you can easily combine it with a full-time job or another online business. You don’t even need to own a paid domain if you want to start a blog. There are a lot of free platforms that you can use. WordPress and Blogger are the most popular ones.

Once you’ve got and set up your blog, you just need to keep writing short posts of around 200–250 words, until you start getting, let’s say, at least 100 visitors per day. Don’t forget about cross links between your blog posts to encourage the visitors to stay on your blog. Now you can start earning. Here you have several ways. You can place online ads, like the ones from Google AdSense or any other network (Yahoo! WordPress.com etc.). You can place promotional banners of different companies for some amount of money. The more successful your blog is, the more money for the banner you can charge. The same goes for posting reviews and promo-posts.

Another efficient strategy is affiliate marketing. We will look at it closer below.

  1. Affiliate Marketing

You can work with marketplaces like eBay or Amazon, or you can choose a more specific niche, like ready-made templates. Here, as an example, we will use the TemplateMonster affiliate program.

It is easy to get started. You just need to sign up and get your referral link, and place it on your blog. You can write articles, place banners, post showcases or use any other tools which they offer. You can try all of these strategies and select the one that suits you best.

With the affiliate program from TemplateMonster, you get your commission paid for every sale made via your referral link. The starting commission rate is 30%, and you can reach up to 50%. An average bill is about $80, and you can get $24–$40 for each sale!

To succeed as an affiliate marketer, you need to arm yourself with patience and post regularly. But be sure it will pay off in spades and you will be able to earn up to $1000 per month!

  1. Guest Posting

If you are skillful in a certain area (web design, cars, health, business projects), you can write guest posts for popular blogs on these subjects. If you can write high-quality content, some successful bloggers can pay you quite a good amount of money for it. In fact, you can earn up to $500 for a single article! Sure you need to be an expert in you field to earn a lot.




  1. YouTube

All you need to do is shoot a video. Don’t get upset if your skills are far from professional, and the only filming device you have is your smartphone. There are plenty of cases when simple home videos got millions of views. After uploading the video, you start getting your revenue. YouTube shows ads along with your video, and you get paid for that.


  1. Teaching and Translating Online

Whether you can produce anything worth consuming, you may try to sell it on the iTunes store. You can make quite a sum with this.


  1. Social Stock Project

Once you sign up for the project, you get your own personal 10% promo-code. Your aim is to share this promo-code via social networks, e-mail newsletters, forums and other means. For each usage of the promo-code, you get 1 point. For 10 points, you can get $100 on your PayPal. You can also get a Pebble Smartwatch, an iPad, an iPhone, a MacBook Pro and even a Tesla Model S if you manage to get 10 000 points. Everything is fair, and you don’t need to put much effort into it. If you spend most of your time in social networks this option is for you.

People need photos for different projects so there is always demand.


  1. Filling Online Surveys

There are special websites that are kind of bridges between these companies and the public. You can use Toluna, OnePole.com, MySurvey. There are lots of others as well. You just need to set out if this idea is interesting to you. Usually, you can earn up to $2 for filling one survey. The payments are carried out via PayPal, but most of such sites offer you vouchers of some popular online stores.
