Many people are looking for ways to earn money on the internet, whether as a side hustle or to start their own business. The good news is that there are more options than ever before. There are also scams, so do your research before you pursue any of these opportunities.

Display ads

One of the most popular ways to make money online is to place advertisements that display on your site. This can be done by signing up with an ad network like Outbrain or Taboola that will display ads on your website on the basis of pay-per-click.

Reselling products

You can make money online by buying and reselling physical goods. This can take the form of reselling old or collectible goods or becoming a distributor for the product line within a specific region or curating a selection of products through your own online store (like daily planners or crochet patterns). If you’d prefer not to maintain inventory, you could consider dropshipping. This means you offer a product through your site however fulfillment and shipping is handled by an outside supplier.

Selling digital content

This can be anything from music samples and ebooks to recipes and exercise plans. The beauty of digital content is that it’s scalable, and it can be sold repeatedly again. If you’re creative or a creative person, this is an excellent option to earn revenue on a regular basis. You’ll need a website for online sales and a way to provide your product to get started.
