Simplest Ways For Students To Make Money Online
I have indicated below some of the best ways for students to make money online. Also they apply to stay at home moms to make some extra income. It might not be as much but with time it can be helpful in one way or the other. There are other ways that I might not have included in this post and readers are welcome to add them below this post. I have also written a similar post the other day (5 Top Ways of Working Home Online) which will also apply to students. The tasks included below can rake in an income of over $100 per day if done in the right direction.
Searching the Web and Getting Paid
Searching the web is something students and those without a busy working schedule can do at any given time. It can be through their Smartphones or sometimes it can be through computers. There are websites that will pay you to do exactly these kinds of tasks. Qmee gives you a platform where you can earn up to $100 just searching the web and clicking on offers.
You also have the flexibility of searching on a wide range or browsers including Google, Yahoo, Bing and many others. You can decide to cash out the revenue earned via your paypal account or you can decide to donate to charity.
Online Market Trading
Online market trading is also another modern that not only students but also many other people are exploiting when it comes to making that extra buck. If interested, it can be as smooth. You do not need to have the experience of Wall Street traders.
You can sign up with eToro that at the time of this post has over 8 million users. The platform has been featured on a BBC 2 documentary "Traders: Millions by the Minute" at only recently it has began offering sponsorships to premier league football clubs.
The thing that is great about this platform is the fact that you do not have to make your trading decisions. It has a copy trader feature that gives you the option of copying investments made by top performing traders.
I would however like to point out that trading online involves a huge risk. It has been estimated that 65%-80.6% of retail investors lose their investments. If you are not ready to take such a huge risk then I would highly advice against taking this route.
Start Your Own Website
Starting a website can be easy as ABC. There are platforms where you can start a website with absolutely no investment at all. Anyone can do it. Choose your niche and grow your brand. If you are promoting a particular product, choose your target audience.
Although starting a website is easy, monetizing is something else. It takes certain knowledge and skill in order to drive organic traffic to your site. You can use paid advertisements but again if you don't have a knowledge in keywords, you could waste your money instead of earning it.
Sometimes it might take a while before you earn an income from Google advertising, but as you wait create your own products for sale on this website. In order to maximize your income, create a number of websites targeting different niches, although it will cost you for domain purchases.
Also include a blogging page where you can interact with your traffic on a regular basis. It is also important to create social media accounts for the website and join relevant communities. As much as it helps in generating leads to your websites, it is also effective in connecting with your followers.
Answer Online Surveys
You may have heard about online surveys as a way to make some extra income, but there's more demand for students other than employees. There are many survey companies such as Swagbucks, Clixsense, GrabPoints, etc.
Write and Publish an eBook on Kindle
Amazon Kindle store gives opportunities for individuals to self publish their piece of art. It is also important to note that Amazon is the future of people that like reading.
If you are good at writing, this is an opportunity for you to make passive income. The advantage with this is the fact that you do not have a specific time limit with which you will make money. It could be lifetime income.
Value your books from between $2-$7 and you will earn 70% of the sales. Most people that I have talked to indicate that writing books on non-fiction, but I would encourage choosing a topic that can best express your artistry.
There are countless of competitions online that students from all over the world can participate and win cash rewards, shopping vouchers or even scholarships. Some of these competitions range from logo design, registration forms or even answering questions on live TV game shows.
Search for such competitions online and sign up. Some people have won thousands of pounds and you could be one among the many.
Buy and Sell Domains
Purchasing and selling of domains is becoming another lucrative method with which to make money. Basically a domain is simply a website address like cybercashworldwide.com. Sometimes they consist of extensions like .co.uk or .com and so on.
You can choose to purchase a domain and build it up or you can choose to purchase one that already exists and wait for the opportune moment to sell it. Sign up on websites like Sedo and list your domains for sale.
Sell Your Photos
Some photos might earn as much as $50 if the content is unique. Make sure that you have taken quite a number of photos to increase your chances of being noticed. Also use your social media presence to attract more people to view and comment on the photos.
I have not exhausted all the methods of earning an extra income, and readers are welcome to make suggestions or more other ways. Some people have suggested that online surveys are also another way of making money but with my years of trying, I have not tried on the same.
I have also been asked to highlight on cryptocurrencies trading, but I would suggest that one does a great research before involving themselves in the ventures. Some have made money of cryptocurrencies while others have incurred losses.
It is also important to indicate that the current market is not stable and it paints a negative picture of a market to invest in.
