How To Earn Money Online
Reading Time: 3 minutes

If you are wondering how to earn money online so that you can be more in charge of your time, you are not alone; many people all over the world are doing the same. They have realized that their jobs are not paying enough and because the internet has provided so many business opportunities, they are looking for new ways to make additional income.

The question of how to earn money online is however not an easy one. There are so many options that it can be very difficult to choose which is the most lucrative. This is compounded by the fact that not all opportunities are not legitimate; there are many that are created by scam artists. Let’s first look at how to identify the real opportunities from the fake ones and then look at some of the most lucrative ways of making money online.



How to Tell a Scam From a Real Online Opportunity

When considering how to earn money online, you have to know how to tell between which business opportunities are real and which are not. Here is what to look out for:


  • The first thing to look out for is an opportunity that is promising you thousands of dollars in a few weeks for very little time spent. The first thing you learn about how to earn money online is that it takes hard work and it also takes time. In the past, before online marketing was so popular, it was possible for people to make a lot of money within a short time, but today, it is a competitive area and you have to put in effort and time.
  • Be careful of opportunities that ask you for upfront cash so that you can get started. Some businesses like these are legitimate, but you have to be very careful because many others take your money and you earn nothing for your investment.
  • If an online business looks too good to be true it probably is. Look out for businesses that have nothing but positive testimonials because every business has its challenges.



How To Earn Money Online: Different Businesses That You Can Try

The most lucrative online business is affiliate marketing. This is a model where another person has created a product or service and you help them sell it. For each sale you make, you earn a commission. You will find these kinds of opportunities on a website called All products sold online are listed here and you can filter for the products with the highest commissions, the ones that sell the most, and so on.


Another good online business opportunity for people who are wondering how to earn money online is selling a product or service. If there is something unique that you have created, you can build a website and then develop a list of people to market to. In the same way, as in the example above, you can enlist affiliates to help you sell your product or service. A good example is health and fitness products because people are always looking for new ways to lose weight. If, for example, you can develop a diet, you can register it at and start selling both the product and the opportunity for others to make money by selling your diet.


These are just two examples of how to earn money online. There are plenty more, but as we said earlier, you have to be very careful to choose the right one. Also, so that you stay motivated and encouraged, try to find opportunities that have good returns.

      Hi Bruno,

      This is a great article for a newbie and a good reminder to us all of what to be aware of on the Internet.

      There are many scammers on the Internet in every venue, including eBay. People are unaware that PayPal emails can be phony.

      Thanks for the tips.

      Good ideas here. I have run across some pretty scummy stuff but usually can weed it out ! Products is my preferred way. Products I can believe in and sell without deception !

      • Bruno Buergi

        Thanks for your comment Terry. It’s always the best thing when you believe in a product or service you sell.

    • Jacs Henderson

      Big promises of fast money are always a suspect option!!
      But affiliate marketing and selling your own product or service are both great options for learning the marketing process – useful to have a guidance in setting up your sites, but there are enough available affiliate products to cover most business interests …
      Good advice Bruno …

      • Bruno Buergi

        Thanks Jacs. Yes people believe that making money online is easy and you get rich over night. The truth is, as in any well pay profession, it’s hard work to start and the benefits will come over time.
