Creative ways to make money
Did you know that it is possible to earn money online? Yes, it’s true and you only need a Computer or a phone with Internet access. I will share with you ten sites where you can start earning a little bit of money, or if you are more dedicated, some real money! Not as amazing as it might seem. There are many sites that allow you to make a lot of money, and the best thing is that you don’t need to quit your day job 9 to 5, you can only work in your spare time.
On the Internet, there are two distinct ways to make money. Active income is the first method. With an active income, such as a 9 to 5 job, you only get paid for the work you perform. If you do not work, you do not earn money, as simple as that.
The second method is via passive income. The preferable method is passive income, as you only need to put in the work once, and the theoretical money will keep rolling in without you having to do any additional work.
Upwork is a freelance website. With Upwork, you are making an income by actively doing work. Companies and individuals look for services on Upwork that they wish to outsource like writing articles, video editing, app development, Coding, there are tons of jobs and outsourced services at Upwork.

Many people do not realize that you can make money with YouTube. If you are considering entering YouTube to make money, make sure you understand the concept clearly. According to the new rules, if you plan to begin a brand new YouTube channel from scratch, you must first reach a certain threshold to be able to make money.
That is, you need 4000 watch hours and 1,000 subscribers in the past 12 months. Once you reach that level, you can monetize.
How much money can you earn from YouTube? Honestly, as much as you wish! As long as you continue to download good content that people are willing to watch you are golden. The longer your videos are viewed, the more money you can make. You can earn anywhere from $1 to thousands of dollars. The more views you get, the more money you can expect to do, and the more you’ll get followers! With YouTube, you can earn money with paid sponsorships, but with paid sponsorships, you need a large audience, usually a minimum of 10,000 subscribers to do so. You can earn money through affiliate marketing, but we will cover that later.
Amazon began by selling books, but now they sell almost anything you can think of.
Amazon is more than just a place to purchase toys, it can actually provide you with a source of income. The following are four ways to earn money with Amazon.
The first method is Amazon Mturk – Mtruk is kind of like Upwork. Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is a crowdsourcing marketplace that makes it easier for individuals and businesses to outsource their processes and jobs to a distributed workforce who can perform these tasks virtually.
Like audio editing, transcription, translation, testing Web pages, writing reviews, and a host of other services. By performing a few different tasks, you can earn as much as $20 per hour, or $30 an hour. This is an active income though.
The second Amazon method is to publish books on Amazon. Turn your ideas into an ebook or published by Amazon book and make money. Every time someone purchases an e-book or physical book from Amazon, Amazon and the publisher (You) make money, and you get to keep the profits. Amazon Publishing entails first creating a book to sell it. You can either write this book by yourself or hire someone to do it for you. You can do this from the comfort of your own home and start earning some passive revenue. You can also make money publishing ‘Low content ‘ books, such as journals, coloring books, or puzzles.
If you are really interested in publishing a book on Amazon, I highly recommend further research on this subject. You can find free videos and tutorials on YouTube that will teach you the basics.
The third method is the Amazon Affiliate Program. This is a very popular and easy method of earning passive income.
All you have to do is register with Amazon Partners. The program is free, they offer thousands of items on their website for you to choose from and you can start promoting. Amazon will give you a special link, and all the time someone buys through your link, Amazon will give you a commission anywhere from 2 – 10% of the sale. Amazon will pay you 60 days after purchase and you can choose to pay through Amazon gift cards or wire transfer to a bank account – currently, this is only available in the US but if you live abroad Amazon can pay you by check or you It could be transferring money to your Amazon account and start buying stuff with it.
The 4th method which is what many people think of is by selling products directly on Amazon. This can be very profitable but does often require a large capital outlay in order to purchase products. You then send your products to Amazon to sell and to ship out to customers. It does have some advantages over starting your own dropshipping store because of the trust value that Amazon provides but the fees charged by Amazon cut down on your potential profit margin versus selling a product on your own website.
Clickbank is an internet marketplace for product creators. Affiliates can make money online by selling their courses and products. Clickbank only sells digital products; however, its advantage over Amazon is that its commission rates are much higher. Some affiliate programs offer up to 70% commission to those who sell their products, while others offer as little as 5%, so keep that in mind. Nevertheless, it is possible to make quite a good living on ClickBank, hundreds, maybe even thousands of dollars.
Flippa is the leading marketplace to buy and sell companies online. It attracts a significant user base and offers excellent visibility tools. It is a lot like eBay, and buyers and sellers can buy and sell digital assets such as websites, apps, domains, eCom stores, and Amazon FBA accounts.
If you are good at creating apps or even websites you can actually sell them online and make some cash. Alternatively, if you have some spare cash lying around, you might consider buying websites, apps, or e-commerce stores.
What happens is that the bidding is done very much in the same manner as it is with eBay and if you have the highest bid, then congratulations! You have just successfully bought yourself an online business. You can also make money by selling an online business.
It is the platform that we regularly sell websites on after we have launched them and used to test different digital marketing and search engine optimization practices on.
Basically, Shutterstock is a platform where you can purchase and sell digital media, such as photos, music, and videos.
Despite the fact that most Shutterstock stock photos are produced by freelancers and third parties, now you have the opportunity to monetize your talents on the site. The way you make money with Shutterstock is that every time you sell your photos, you receive a commission, usually a few cents to, ideally, a few dollars. Making a significant amount of money with Shutterstock requires lots of high-quality images.
Do you enjoy pets? Especially dogs? If that is the case, I’d suggest you check out Rover. Rover is a dog sitting and walking service, but this is currently only available in the U.S. and Canada.
So if you live in either of the two countries then you can register as a dog walker and earn money by dogsitting dogs. You can earn anywhere from 80 to 100 dollars per night by watching a dog. You can literally make hundreds of dollars per week just by dogsitting. How about that for a deal?
TakeLessons is an online platform where you can teach anything. Everyone has a skill they can share, whether that skill is knowledge of languages, cooking skills, how to play an instrument, solving mathematical equations, etc.
If there is something you think others may not know, you can teach them at TakeLessons, and make extra money.

Dropshipping enables you to sell someone else’s product for a profit without having to handle the logistics of shipping.
Basically, you are acting as a middleman. You can do this by opening a GrooveKart store and then linking it with Aliexpress or any other supplier. Aliexpress is basically a platform like Amazon but based in China with low-cost items and that’s what a lot of beginners do. However, it is a recipe for failure if you do it that way. 97% of the people starting out like this fail. If you want to do it this way you really should look into high ticket dropshipping and use domestic suppliers. You can find these suppliers by using a directory like SaleHoo.
The basic idea of dropshipping is, you build a store where people can order from you. Then once the product is purchased you pay the manufacturer a lower price than what you paid yourself, and the manufacturer then delivers the product to the customer. All of this without seeing or touching the product.
The great thing about dropshipping is that you set your own price for the product you want to sell, take the profit, and pay the manufacturer the rest. So yeah, that’s dropshipping in a nutshell. If you are interested in drop shipping, there are tons of tutorials on the Digital Papercuts blog. It’s a little complicated to get started, especially at first if you do it the right way and do approach it as a business and not as a get-rich-quick scheme, but you can make a ton of money at it if you are successful.
If you are interested in getting into dropshipping do it the right way and start by opening up a FREE GrooveKart store.
