Here are the Best Ways To Make Money Online :-

  1. Affiliate Marketing (Get Paid Per Sale) – This is the one online money making way that has made and is still making many millionaires. In fact a very competitive field but is immensely rewarding as well. The concept is simple that is you need to promote somebody else’s product as an affiliate online. You can promote both physical and digital products on any topic or field you want. There are affiliate networks like Clickbank, Paydotcom, Click2Sell, CJ and Amazon etc where you will get products of all types and of all categories to promote. Just sign up with any one of the affiliate networks (for free) and choose your products to promote. You only make money when the customer that you refer to the merchant site buys a product. Commissions generally vary from 5% to 80% depending on the type of product and the merchant. To know more details on this read my post on – Make money promoting affiliate products online.
  2. Affiliate Marketing (Get Paid Per Lead) – This concept is also similar to that of the above way of making money on sale of affiliate products but here you are not required to make any sale to make money. Your work is to promote a link which would lead a prospect to a site where he will be asked to do an activity as desired by the programme and you get your commission when the activity is done. The activities that I have just mentioned are just simple tasks like filling up a form, entering their email address or address or zip code or phone number etc, sign up for a free service, download a pdf or software etc, sign up for a free trial and etc. Commissions are generally low as compared to the get-paid-per-sale programmes . As the tasks are free to be done and no payments of any sort are required to be made so generally the conversion rate is high and this more then balances the low commission rates. Now many webmasters and affiliate marketers are seen to focus their attention more on get-paid-per-lead programmes to make money online due to their high conversion rates. You can join as an affiliate at CommissionJunction (cj.com), ebay.com and get paid for free sign-ups. There are many such programmes on net just do a Google or Yahoo and you will get plenty of pay-per-lead programmes to promote and make money online.
  3. Content Website – Start a content website and put up useful content, resources and the like on a topic that is of much importance and general demand.

Promote your site online through various mediums like forums, classifieds, advertisements, PPC etc to drive traffic. Then when you start getting a good amount of traffic to your site you can monetize it through various means to earn a considerable income online. You can use contextual advertising like AdSense of Google, promote Affiliate Products (both pay per sale and lead), sell advertising space, sell links, use in-line text ad programmes like Kontera and etc to make money from your website.

You can sell virtually anything on Ebay.com – from pins to ships. In case of your own products you need to handle the packaging yourself but if you tie up with a drop shipping company and sell their products then you need not worry about anything other than promotion of your store. All the tools and help needed for promotion can be found on Ebay. They have a very detailed “Help” section to help you set your store. You can even sell the junk in your house or office that are of no use to you on Ebay and make some money. You can also sell other people’s junk through your store in return for a commission.

  9. Equity Trading – I hope we all have heard somebody or the other talking about equities, shares, share market and stock exchanges quiet often. Even you or anybody else can start share trading by getting ourselves registered with any share broker. Though a high risk medium to earn money but if done properly can earn you a real lot of money. You can trade on shares through the broker or sub-broker’s terminal at their premises or can open an online account to start trading from your own computer having an Internet connection.
  10. You can buy shares and keep them to be sold when their price rises or can even do Day Trading which means to buy and sell shares on a daily basis for small profits. Once again I must mention that this is particularly a very risky field and you can even lose your capital in just a matter of seconds if you are not careful enough. So it is advised that you educate yourself about the different aspects of share trading including its risks and gains before entering the market. Learn some technical analysis to be on the safer side and never ever believe any so called expert blindly because nobody can predict the movement of an equity. There are many resources available on Internet to learn the field so go ahead – learn – apply. Start with a very small investment and gradually increase later as you start learning the loop holes of this online money making way.
  11. Futures and Options – Almost same as above but you got to buy shares in bulk and the game is played on future prices so large investment and more larger risk factors come into play. It is advisable to first enter the Equity trading field and then slowly gain knowledge on Futures and Options and then enter it gradually. This is a very high risk and high gain way of making money online.
  12. Commodity Trading – Almost same as above in the concept except here you have to deal with commodities like metals, oil, grains etc. There are separate commodity stock exchanges that deals in commodity trading. The game is played on future prices so more risky. You would have to invest in bulk amounts. There are two options to go for – Future and Options. Again utmost caution is advised and learn before you jump in. Again a high risk way of earning money online but is quiet rewarding too.
  13. Forex Trading – Foreign + Exchange = FOREX. This is also one more very enticing way of earning money online. This is also almost similar in concept to equity trading but here foreign currencies are traded through one large world over market – the Forex market. The Forex market is a non-stop cash market where currencies of various nations are traded, typically via brokers. You can open an account with any of these brokers and start trading currencies online from your home. Foreign currencies are constantly and simultaneously bought and sold across local and global markets and traders’ investments increase or decrease in value based upon currency movements and their values at a particular moment. Foreign exchange market is very volatile so conditions can change at any time in response to real-time events the world over thus affecting the rates of currencies.

The best part is that the market is open 24hrs and never closes – so you can trade at any time. You can trade in any currency you want like Dollars, Euro or Yen etc. It is a volatile market offering many profit opportunities like you can gain both from gaining and falling markets. There are also many risk controlling instruments like arbitrage and hedging etc. You can trade in large amounts with a very small margin money kept as security with your broker. There is also the option of zero commission offered by many brokers. But as in the previous options educate yourself before you jump into the field. You can make money only with patience and a strategically planned approach.
