More and more people are turning in their full-time office jobs to work from home. Making money online has never been easier with the growing opportunities everywhere.
Some people are out there making millions a year online while others are making a few hundred a month. It all depends on maximizing your resources and knowing how to navigate the web.
Here are some of the best-proven ways to make some extra money online.
Professional online gaming, otherwise known as eSports, is the latest competitive career choice for aspiring gamers. If you think that you have the chops to compete with some of the best in the world, then there may very well be a million dollar career just around the corner waiting for you.
If you think that you may not be up to par, don’t lose hope. There are other lines of work within this niche that don’t involve playing.
You could contribute and make money through content development, hosting, project managing, or even as an analyst. Forget the days where your mother told you that gaming was a waste of your time. In 2016 eSports were estimated to have brought in $493 million in revenue. Not too shabby for “wasting your time.”
Blogging is a fantastic way to be able to work from home and potentially make a lot of money depending on the success of your following. If your content is interesting and brings in a steady stream of readers, then all you have to do is keep it up and you could start making thousands a month on click per view advertising alone.
With a successful blog also comes the opportunity for endorsements and getting paid to submit content to other publications. Some bloggers are reported to be making millions a month and don’t even create all of their content. What a business model!
The business of social media platforms stretches out beyond blogs and Facebook pages. Since it’s creation in 2010, Instagram has now become a platform for marketing to hundreds of millions.
Once you have an audience of over 10,000 usually accounts representing products or services will start to approach you offering you either money or products in exchange for advertising their content.
Once your followers surpass 50,000 things can get even more interesting. At this point, you become known as what is called an “influencer” and will be highly sought after for top name brands that want to associate you with their business.
All it takes is a photo of your endorsing their brand and you can make a few thousand in one go. If you’ve been thinking about becoming an influencer Instagram is definitely the place to start first.
