Here Are the 10 Best Websites to Make Money Online!

Upwork

Upwork is pretty fly. I haven’t used it much because I feel like I can get more bang for my buck through other avenues but that doesn’t mean its not a solid platform. Upwork might be worth checking out if you have a long term project that needs hands on deck. Similarly if you have a skill in coding, administrative work, or video editing then you may be able to monetize your services through Upwork and make serious dough.

Fiverr

I love Fiverr for a lot of reasons. I’ve hired a ton of people on it and two its super easy to use. I also like it because there’s very little need to commit to it. You can work with a gig provider on a project basis and move on if you’re not in love with the results. Their customer service is pretty chill too. I wholeheartedly think that Fiverr is going to be here for the long term and I believe in the platform.

Google AdSense

My feelings about Google Adsense have changed substantially. When I first started my blog I thought that it would be a phenomenal source of income. And don’t get me wrong the money is a real thing, but its not nearly as much as bloggers claim it is. So that’s something you may wanna consider before jumping knees deep into a blog because if the love for it isn’t there, you can be disappointed in the short term due to low AdSense revenue.

Shutterstock

Do you have an affinity for photography? Do you enjoy graphic design. Thn look no further! (this is not an ad) Shutterstock can be a viable way to make money online. I’ve personally tried it back when I wanted to make money and I started goofing around and putting random pictures of my dog and old drawings on the platform. I didn’t get much traction but had I taken it more seriously I can easily see this as a valuable way to make money. Essentially, you upload pictures to your Shutterstock portfolio. During the upload process, your photo will have to adhere to Shutterstock’s requirements. This includes things like photo clarity, sizing, and content. It’s a bit mundane but once you pass the process its smooth sailing.

Youtube

Browsing Youtube

Youtube, Youtube, Youtube. People love Youtube. And I love Youtube (surprise!) What a lot of people are learning is that Youtube can be an exceptional way to make passive income. This is because AdSense can pay you in perpetuity if you create content that is relevant and keeps viewers on the platform. If you have a passion for educating others and know how to come across well on camera then Youtube might be for you. Consider remaining consistent and putting out quality content. If you continue doing so then you’ll be rewarded for it financially.

Amazon FBA

A colleague of mine is really excited about Amazon FBA. He’s planning on using it over the summer as side hustle income. Basically he’s been going around and getting items from friends and family. Essentially he’s gonna use his inventory as start up income for when he officially starts Amazon FBA. Now I’m not gonna lie, I don’t know much about Amazon FBA, but from what I understand, you essentially become “the plug” for Amazon’s inventory. That’s right, if you analyze price margins and have a way of getting items like clothes, beauty products, and electronics for a discount price then Amazon may buy those products from you at a profit. Again, I’m no expert on this stuff but it sounds like a cool idea if you know what you’re doing.

Honey

Now this one isn’t much of a side hustle but more so a great money saver. If you shop online a lot I can’t speak enough about Honey. I heard about it from my wife and I didn’t think much of it. However, its a great way to get discounts on day-to-day items that you normally buy. I downloaded the chrome extension about a year ago and I can’t tell you how much money its saved me. But boy does it add up! I’m sure if I looked at the numbers I probably saved hundreds of dollars. So yeah, check that out and thank me later.

Instagram

So this one is new for me, but recently I started an Instagram page for my blog and I gotta say its been very rewarding. I’m not where I wanna be but I’ve came a long way when it comes to social media. One of the great things about Insta is that its an awesome way to make some extra cash if you can scale your following. For starters, brands are always looking to collaborate with influencers who have a loyal audience. So, if you want you can charge for a few posts. Sounds underwhelming I know. I wish there was more to it but if you start scaling your following then you’ll be in a phenomenal position a few years from now assuming IG doesn’t go anywhere.

Podcast

Podcasts can be a very demanding hustle but from what I’ve seen its super rewarding. Essentially, if you’re serious enough you can create your own radio show and have daily listeners tuned in day in and day out. With platforms like Anchor, you can easily make money on your podcast with advertisement placements. Doing so can create passive income for you while you build your audience.

Online Surveys

If you have some time on your hands, online surveys can make you some serious dough. You won’t be Warren Buffet but you can definitely pay a bill or two. I wish i had time for online surveys but your boy is out here grinding and what not. Consider online surveys if you want to make some extra cash because it can build up fast if you know where to look.
