Register at one of these websites, build your profile, show your skills and start bidding for projects. You can start by checking freelancer.com and odesk.com
Affiliate Marketing is based on the Idea of promoting other people’s products and services using your website, Blog, email list or even your social networks accounts and get paid. Product owners and service providers are usually looking for promoters and online marketers to help them sell their stuff, and they are willing to pay a considerable percentage in return. This is one of the easiest methods and I know many people who managed to gain a good fortune from this. I’m going to write a detailed tutorial about how to become an Affiliate Marketer soon. Clickbank.com is a well known resource of affiliate marketing and a great place to start, along with amazon.com affiliate program.
Buying and Selling Domain names is a nice business, it needs a small capital to start, and a good sense to know what names are good plus some knowledge regarding domain history. There are many written articles on how to choose a good domain and how to market your domains. In my opinion every domain flipper has his/her own way, but the most important factor is to check the domain name history before buying it. My best websites are Flippa because it’s users friendly not to forget to mention godaddy.com and its famous platform
Own an Online store
If you have a product/or service you can sell them online independently all you need to have is an online front end “online store” and payment gateway, and you can start receiving requests and purchasing orders. eBay gives a great experience on online trading. Use shopify to sell on facebook. Or you can leave all this and start your own online store.
Offer micro-services (Gigs)
Another way of freelancing, it’s a different model of freelancing and a simpler way that’s why I’m considering it as a separate way of making a side business. You can offer your skills and services in a small packages “called gigs” for small amount of money, considering Fiverr.com in which all services beginning at the cost of $5 “That’s where the name came from”
This one require some skills, if you know about web designing, some HTML and web hosting this can be a good side job, especially with the existence of tools that makes this job an easy task such as CMS and WYSIWYG Programs
Educator – Trainer
Do you consider yourself a professional in your field? Do you have the skill to train and educate people about it? If so then you can record lessons and classes and sell them online. Udemy.com provides online courses on different types of subjects such as; languages, designing, business, health and life style and music.
