If you are attracted to the idea of doing a clear out of your own home, eBay can be a great way to see an immediate return. Just think of the collection of unused toys, books, and gear in your garage now, wouldn’t it be great to have that money in your hands.

Can You Write A Book?

5. Create that book that has been lurking in your head for years and sell it to Kindle.

If you have never been involved with publishing a book, you won’t know what a drama it can be. In the old days, you would have had to convince a publisher to buy your manuscript and distribute the hard copy book for you. Although, some books are still published this way. The Amazon Kindle platform allows anyone to write and publish their own books.

If you have a great idea but feel that writing a whole book is beyond you, there are ghostwriters who will work with your outline to create your book. Outsource your book idea to Guru or Upwork.

Get help from a graphic designer online

Make sure you have a graphic designer create a great cover for your book to be a success.

They are always on the lookout for ‘fiction’ and ‘how-to’ books. Will you be the next star author? Or will you create an ebook to give away for free on your new website to create a mailing list which a proven marketing technique?

When you are ready to get some sales to go to Kindle Direct Publishing at Amazon to upload your book. Remember to set a price and look forward to being a published author.

Create a Podcast

6. Have you a lot to say about your area of expertise? Now is your chance to share your knowledge or interview with other talented people. Listening to a podcast can expand your knowledge in any area and you can relax at home whilst listening.

Basics for creating podcasts are a good name, (even better if you are known) some recording and editing equipment, and an eye-catching cover to draw a crowd to listen. There are many services available like Apple Podcasts where you can upload for your listeners.

How do you make money with a podcast? You can promote products during your show that you have affiliate links to or help your guests to promote their products. Great things can come from your podcast exposure, even speaking engagements.

Teach Through Your Own YouTube Channel

7. How exciting to have your talents showcased and create a following on YouTube. This is one of the fastest-growing digital mediums in the world. It’s the first place we go to check out a song or training. Now it is your chance! YouTube is owned by Google, the first place that we all go to for information. Whether you are a tech with great insights into a new skill or a musician wanting to make a name for yourself, this is a great forum to reach the world.

You have three options in creating a YouTube Niche. You don’t necessarily need to appear in your videos, you can do a PowerPoint presentation where you speak only. Or use Doodle software to make a video.

Create a Blog

8. If you love sharing tips and information on a particular niche, now is your chance to shine and create an income from something you love. Think of what you are interested in and check out what people are Googling.

Then build a reputation for having great answers for people searching your niche. Use keywords in your title and your content to make yourself easy to find. Create interesting content and even videos to capture people’s interest.

Build a Mailing List Following

Once, have built a following it will be time to monetize your blog. You can advertise products that you feel compliment your niche by writing reviews, promoting real and digital products. You can create an affiliate link to a product on Amazon or any other company with an affiliate product that you like.

They pay a percentage in a commission to you for each sale. So it is worth finding the best paying affiliate programs for the products you love.

Creating your own digital product to sell on your blog or selling space for others to market their products is an option. Consequently, another opportunity lies in creating a mailing list and membership to your blog to soft-sell products you believe in.

Design and Sell Your Own Product

9. You may think that this is too complicated for you, especially if you haven’t even created a website yet. But really there are so many resources online and many of them free to help you create your own digital product. Even better all the research has been done for you by my friends Dave and Heidi at The Digital Marketing Launchpad

You could waste hours trying to find the free sites to help you design and create your master digital product by why do it the hard way when they have done the research and can save you a lot of pain.

Selling your own digital product is the most lucrative way to make money but if you are not quite ready to be so brave.

Selling products that others stock and ship for you, could be a start to a bright new future for you in affiliate marketing. Which, is my own personal first choice in starting a business on the internet.

Affiliate Marketing

10. Coming from a complete newbie to the internet business world I can highly recommend becoming a member of affiliate programs to begin your first website business. How do you get started you ask?

Find a reputable learning platform where you can get training and support to learn everything about creating a website and how to sell products on it.

Consequently, you will make a commission from companies such as Shareasale, Clickbank, Amazon, and eBay, and many large companies from around the world.

You won’t have to spend time creating or shipping products. These companies will provide banners and links so that any product sold through your website, will make you a percentage of the price paid. It even works when you are asleep!

Where To Begin?

I was looking for a way to make money on the internet and tripped over a review of several companies who would train you but the outstanding company was Wealthy Affiliate. For starters, it was free for 2 weeks.

There were lots of lessons that I could do and create 2 websites at the same time. Talk to the owners of the website and the community with any questions that I had. They didn’t even ask me for my credit card details to register. Click below to have me as your mentor.


It was a no-lose situation. After the trial, I signed up for less than $1 a day to continue my lessons, host my websites, and have the best in security and technical assistance.

You can read more about this company and its training here.

My dismay at knowing absolutely nothing about creating a website has disappeared over the last 10 months, to creating two websites and making sale commissions. I was able to learn at my own pace and have complete control over the quality of my design and the content that I write.

So much to learn and so many people helping me. Make your dreams come true today and take your first steps to financial freedom if you dare. I’ll be there cheering you on and always ready to help including myself.

  1. This has been a very useful post. I had always wanted to start earning money online but before this corona virus crisis I was so busy. Now that I’m staying at home, I’ve decided to research and am discovering that it’s easier than I thought. All these options are available for us from the comfort of our home. I like to write and I like to talk even more, LOL. So a blog or a podcast would suit me.

I have actually earned through some of the means you shared here and a lot more are very new to me as a means of earning income online. Thanks for sharing

  3. Hi Lily,

    Firstly, your website is very “neat”  and easy to read and understand. I like your story. A personal story always bring the reader closer to you, and also make them understand your frame of mind.

    Your WA review is very comprehensive. I know that people are sometimes lazy to read, and I often thought that one should only highlight the main features of a company, but with your review. you explain everything in very plain and simple terms. I’ve changed my belief about this. I think it makes it just so much easier for the reader to make an informed decision, if they can have as much info as possible available, to assist with their decision.

    1. Hi Andre, thank you so much for your kind comments. I’m pleased that you found my post easy to read and covering aspects of earning money on the internet in several ways.

      Hopefully, this will help you in your success.
