When I was a kid, I had thought up of making a website and earning a living off of it.

Many years later, however, I don’t have a dot com website to my name, but somehow I realized my dream! I made money off the internet.

Before anything else, I am not here to brag. The income I earned was small. It was only a few dollars a month, less than a hundred dollars if you want to narrow it down some more.  Frankly, however, I did not care for the amount I got. “I did it,” I told myself, and that was all that mattered.

I first started with building a website. I studied HTML and got some free webhosting. Free because I was a student at that time and all I had to invest was my time. I then pumped it full of ads. Embarrassing, I know, but that was how I started. Unfortunately, that did not work. It had terrible traffic, and revenues from GoogleAdsense was also very low.  To profit properly from Adsense, I had to have thousands of visitors, and some had to click on ads.

My next attempt was opening an online shop. I opened an account on etsy, but realized I lacked the skill to make arts and crafts. Then I learned about RedBubble .

RedBubble.com is a website for creative people. You just make a design, upload it, and apply it to their various products available, such as shirts, phone cases and mugs.  I thought those were cool, and I had always wanted to have my own merch.  It sounded easy enough. I could make some art stuff. Everytime I would make some art, I’d share them on tumblr. Some gets noticed and gets reblogged a couple of times. Those had links to my shop, which helped in making my sales. Every month, the profit I made from my shop were transferred to paypal, which I then widrew to my bank.

If you want to take a look at my shop, just click this link. Perhaps an on-line shop such as this is the one for you.

However, if visual art is not your thing, there are a lot of ways one can earn from the internet now. Here are ten ways you can make money from the internet:

  1. Be a virtual assistant
  2. Be a virtual tutor
  3. Be an affiliate marketer
  4. Write a blog
  5. Open an online store
  6. Write an e-book (I read that nonfiction is easier to make than fiction)
  7. Be a youtuber. You need to have a large following to enable displaying ads and livestreaming.
  8. Take paid surveys.
  9. Make an App.
  10. Be an online transcriptionist

If you got the skill, you can make some money from the internet.

What about you? Are you earning an income from blogging? Or perhaps using blogging as a way to improve or promote another business? Any more money-making ideas you would like to share? Let’s talk about them in the comments.

Thank you and have a nice day.
