Below Are 50 Ways To Make Money Online In 2017

  1. Blogging

how to earn money online by blogging

This is is my most favorite so I will be making it top on my list. Blogging is one of the most profitable ways to make money online in 2017. Blogging is very convenient and lucrative that you can do it without quitting your job but still thousands are quitting their jobs all for the sake of blogging because they know that the more time they invest in blogging, the more income they receive.

Start a blog with what you have a passion for or an idea you would like to express for public consumption. For example, if you love dancing, start an entertainment blog to show people how to dance and provide value to them.

In blogging, providing values is necessary so as to keep visitors on your blog.

You can start a blog on various niches of your choice such as entertainment, health, relationships, insurance, finance e.t.c

2. Vlogging

Don’t be confused about the word vlogging. It’s also known as video blogging.

Yes, starting a youtube channel business is one of the things you should consider if you really want to make money online.

Youtube is one of the most visited social media platforms where people learn everyday including myself. Creating videos is not so difficult and you can do them for fun and upload them to youtube. You’ll be surprised at the number of engagements you’ll receive from your videos.

There are so many people who depend solely on making money through youtube. creating videos is all you need to do. If you don’t feel comfortable facing the screen and creating videos, you can create slideshows using MS PowerPoint or other similar presentation software to create slideshows.

The downside about slideshows is that a lot of people may not find it interesting to watch.

3. Graphics Design

Graphics design is one of the best and easiest ways to make money online. I have seen a lot of people with excellent graphic design skills but do not know how to utilize it.

As a graphic designer, you need to have a basic knowledge in designing flyers, posters, banners, and adverts. If you intend doing graphic design on a large scale, you should also have at least a basic knowledge on the use of printers and how to identify the best paper choice for your flyers, banners, and posters.

Do not worry if you have ZERO knowledge of graphic design. I too fall into this category but still, people recognize me as a professional graphics designer. My only secret is DiyGraphics. Download over 2,000 ready-made graphics templates on this website and sell each one of them for as high as $50-$100 on freelance sites.

Sign up on Fiverr or Upwork and start using those ready-made graphics design templates to earn thousands of dollars like I am doing.

4. Domain Flipping

Domain flipping is all about buying and selling potential domain names that could worth thousands and millions in future. Domain flipping is very profitable but requires patience to see good results. Read more about domain flipping on, it has sufficient information on buying and selling domains.

5. E-book Publishing

If you have a flair for writing and you possess good writing skills, with a good ability to identify people’s problem then your business is to provide the solution to these problems in form of an ebook. You can upload your e-books to article directories where you can be hired from people who love your style of presentation or better still, you can sell these e-books on stores like Amazon, eBay e.t.c

6. Surveys

This is another excellent way of making money online. Surveys are not stressful and can be done for fun. You don’t need to sit in front of your computer all through the day before you can make few dollars from surveys but if you are ready to scale up your earnings, you should be able to devote at least 3-4hours per day which is still not so much, in my opinion, to receive survey task with higher payouts.

7. PayPerClick Advertising

This is an effective method of making money online where you don’t need to own a website or spend a single dime on adverts.

13. Blog Installation

This is another crazy method to make money online. Everybody wants to own a blog but most people have no knowledge of setting up a blog. Some are too lazy to do it and prefer hiring people to do it for them. If you have a basic knowledge of WordPress or blogger then this is an opportunity for you to smile to the bank. You can help people do simple WordPress installation which won’t take more than 30 minutes of your time for as much as $100 or more.

14. Membership Sites

If you are a professional in your field then you can start a membership site where you offer specific information and teach people your craft online.

In the drop shipping scenario:
 (1) The customer pays you for the product.
 (2) Only after you get the money from the customer, you pay the supplier to fulfill the order.
 (3) The supplier sends the final product directly to the customer.
