Making money online or earning passive income is everyone’s wish. This is also called remote work, or working at home. Remote work, of course, got its freedoms and challenges. I have worked online for almost a decade now, and all I can say is that, working online is so rewarding when you find the right niche that matches your passion.
According to Remote Work Statistics, 42% of remote workers plan to work remotely more frequently than they currently do in the next 5 years, and that more than half of on-site workers want to start working remotely.
Modern Workplace Report, 2019, Indicates that, “43% of US employers said they plan to allow their employees to have more remote working opportunities in the next year. Only 9% said they plan to offer less.”
Having seen the statistics, there is so much to talk about making money online, but we refine our focus only on the ways that have been proven to be fruitful. There are so many online gigs to earn good money but we will only highlight 10, most of which are the ones that we have tested and proven to be realistically good.
- Content writing
The reason why I have put content writing as the first is because it is not a complicated task. It just requires you to have a good grasp and command of the English language and you are good to go.
There are so many clients who always need good quality content, and if you can become a pro content creator, you will always make your smile to the bank. Content writing include areas such as: press release articles, news, stories, product reviews, ghost writing among many other types of content.
- Web design and software development
If you are a computer programmer wizard, this is your area of making money. There are so many clients all over the web looking for web designers, app and software developers. That means you will never lack what to do when you have the right skillset for the job.
- Online graphic design
Graphic designers are also on demand globally. It is a skill that you can use to make money from the online market. Therefore, you can comfortably work at the comfort if your home and earn from this worthwhile profession. You can place your gigs on Fiverr or look for clients from Upwork among other online platforms.
Blogging is another proven way of making money online. If you have a blog that got some traffic, you can choose what to do with your traffic. You can earn from Google Ads by integrating it with your site, or even do direct advertising depending on the amount and location of your traffic. There are many ways to make money blogging and you can choose what suits you. On your blog you can also sell eBooks, or other online services that you can offer.
- Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is where you market a Company’s products on your site so as to earn a certain percentage commission for every sale made. There are so many popular affiliate programs out there and I am talking from a first hand experience being one of them. You can check the most rewarding affiliate program that suits you, then try it.
