Five easy ways to make money online


It's hard to remember a time before the internet. For as long as most of us can recall it's the place we've automatically gone to research topics, book tickets, interact with friends and watch whacky video clips - but how can it be used to make money?
Considering how many hours we put in to surfing the web each week it makes sense to spend at least some of that time productively. Therefore, we asked a number of online gurus to give us their top tips on how it can be used to help generate a full or part-time income.

 1. Become an eBay trader

The Godfather site of the e-commerce world has been going since 1995 and boasts more than a million users across the globe. It can be used to buy and sell virtually anything - and from a business perspective your “shop” can be viewed 24-hours-a-day. 
The key to success is focusing on certain products, according to Emma Jones, founder of Enterprise Nation. “Don't try and sell everything - be as niche as possible,” she says. “The businesses that I'm seeing perform best at the moment are those that have a very clear product that they market to a well-defined audience.”

 2. Sell goods you've made online

Stepping on from eBay trading is manufacturing the goods that you sell. This can include anything and everything from model cars and plates to jewellery and clothing. Services such as create.net enable you to set up and run your own online shop. 
Lesley-Anne Pace set up The Cotton Bee (thecottonbee.co.uk) after being given her aunt's 40-year-old sewing machine just after her daughter, Phoebe, was born in November 2009. She used it to make a patchwork play mat and hasn't stopped sewing since! 
“I create handmade patchwork quilts and sell a selection of fabrics,” she says. “I am currently developing a range of hand-embroidered items which I'm looking forward to offering in the next couple of months.” 
The 39-year-old, from Gateshead, likes the fact she can run the website around her life and studies, although admits it can be tough keeping organised. “I have an artistic personality and am easily distracted with new projects,” she says. “My advice is to make use of social media to advertise and connect to potential customers as it's free!”

 3. Start up a blog

There are a staggering number of blogs around the world but setting one up and building a loyal readership cannot only provide a source of income but a potential springboard to full and part-time work opportunities. 
Journalist Susie Boniface is a prime example. Under the alias Fleet Street Fox (fleetstreetfox.com) she wrote an opinionated blog as a way to move from being a national newspaper reporter to columnist - and it resulted in a book deal with The Diaries of a Fleet Street Fox being published earlier this year. 
The 36-year-old says the keys to her success were having a memorable nickname, keeping on the pulse by tweeting during popular shows such as Britain's Got Talent, and falling back on established tabloid newspaper techniques to get readers. “I stuck to very simple colours - black, white and red - and a simple serif font,” she says. “I also made sure there was plenty of spacing and regular use of photographs and links to substantiate the points I was making.” 
Susie's advice to would-be bloggers is to think up a catchy name and include lots of links to raise your profile as people will link back to you. 
“You need to know what people are talking about and be interesting and witty,” she adds. “You need to engage readers and this takes a long time as there's no brand loyalty on the internet. It's not like they go to the shops to buy the same paper every day.” 
“You can also use affiliate schemes to generate revenue, with hundreds of brands willing to offer commissions if your site helps directs traffic to them and generates revenue,” he says. “Affiliate Window and Commis-sion Junction are two of the most popular schemes.”
Affiliate schemes work with hundreds of individual brands who are willing to offer commission to sites that can help them generate revenue. 
Online marketers and bloggers are quickly jumping on the "monetization widget" strategy. Traditional display ads have been on the decline lately. Bloggers are claiming that combination of affiliate marketing paired with contextual shopping can create a strong and steady income. See a great example here.

 4. Take online surveys
The deal is that you answer questions or review products and get rewarded for your efforts. While it won't make you thousands of pounds it's still a smart way to boost your income, according to Guy Anker, news editor of MoneySavingExpert.com. 
“Dedicated survey-stashers can make £200 a year in cash and vouchers, while some of our users have even pushed it to the max and made £800 a year,” he says. “It's best to focus on survey sites with decent payouts, low payment thresholds and a reliable volume of surveys.” 
Avoid sites that charge you to register and keep a record of all surveys that you've filled out, making a note of the title and the promised payment. Taking a screenshot and noting down any reference numbers can also help you with any subsequent disputes. 
Of all the sites, MoneySavingExpert.com suggests Ipsos (iap-interactive.com), Swagbucks (swagbucks.com), Global Test Market (globaltestmarket.com), Crowdology (crowdology.co.uk), and MySurvey (mysurvey.com).

 5. Set up a photo library

If you are a budding photographer then why not sell your images? You can, of course, set up your own website but it will be up to you to generate “traffic” to your site in order to make sales. 
An alternative is to sign up to sites such as istockphoto.com and earn upwards of 15 percent commission every time one of your images is downloaded.

  5. Great list. Just remember that online buyers nowadays are kind of choosy when it comes to products. You see, they don't see it firsthand, that's why don't be too lenient when it comes to production and stuff, buyers will know it and it may affect your popularity.
