After the pandemic that we have experienced and, to a large extent, are still experiencing today, many people have started to want to generate income from home, especially those who were losing more time commuting from home to work due to poor public transport connections or living in cities with heavy traffic.

For this and many other different reasons, such as greater exposure to the virus than working from home, many professionals have decided to start generating their own income from home via the internet.

1. Create a blog

Although it sounds easy, it is not. But it’s also not as difficult as some people may think. You simply have to create amazing articles on a topic that you have a lot of knowledge about. For example, many professionals have left their jobs because, in addition to the traditional job they had in a company, they blogged about their work and ended up earning more monthly income from the blog than from their main job.

Try to communicate the knowledge you have about the area you work in a way that anyone can understand so that you can also attract people who are less knowledgeable about the topic you are blogging about. But above all, be yourself.

And above all, don’t think that no one will be interested in your topic. There are websites and blogs on every subject you can think of because if something interests you, there will always be someone else in the world who is interested in it.

2. Create a YouTube channel

Youtube channels can generate a lot of income in a relatively short period of time. If you can go viral enough, you can quickly gain thousands of followers. This will attract brands that will offer you collaborations, in addition to what you can earn from the advertising that Youtube inserts in the videos. You have to think that Youtube is the second most important search engine, behind Google. There are even segments of the population, the youngest, for whom it is the most used search engine because they prefer to watch videos instead of searching for information on web pages.

On this point, it is the same as with the creation of a blog: you can talk about absolutely any subject because there will always be people interested in it. And here, even more so, what hooks people the most is that you are yourself and have your own personal touch on the channel. Try not to be overly boring, even if the topic you are talking about is serious or boring.

3. Web content writer

Without having to create your own blog and promote it so that people know about it and visit it, you can write for others. Here you can also make your knowledge on different topics available to different companies. Absolutely any topic will have websites that need you to create content. For example, some of the most popular topics and where copywriters are often sought after are casino and sports betting websites. If you have little knowledge about how online casinos work, there are plenty of websites that talk about them, such as Casinotop3. To offer your writing services, you can either contact the websites you are interested in directly to see if they have any vacancies available or use dedicated platforms. Examples of platforms you could use are Fiverr or Workana.

If you visit the writer’s section, you will see that there is a constant demand for people with experience in certain topics to write web content. On the other hand, it is also very easy to offer your services directly in specialized forums, and surely some companies in your sector will end up hiring you.

4. Create your online shop

Here you may need more knowledge, but nowadays, there are platforms that allow you to create your own online shop without the need for programming skills. However, you will need to have some training or experience in sales for your shop to generate enough income to consider it a job. On the internet, you might see tutorials on how to create your own online shop very easily and at a very low cost.

5. Create your own online course

There are many different online courses on any subject you can imagine. If there is something that you can consider yourself an expert in or that you know more about than most people, you can create your own online course and sell it to all those people who want to learn what you know so much about.

In fact, you don’t need to be a great expert, either. Simply by knowing more than your potential buyers, you can create and sell a successful online course.

There are people on the internet making millions of dollars a year selling online courses. You have two options: sell on a course platform like Udemy or sell on your own website. In the case of the first option, it is much easier to start selling the course, but your profits will be lower, and sometimes, you will not have full control over the course. If you choose to sell through your own website, you will have full control over the selling and updating of the course, and all the revenue will go to you. However, you will need to invest in creating a website that functions as an online shop (to sell the course) and as a video platform (for users to watch the course). To do this, you will need to invest in creating a quality website that can offer all of this to your customers.

Making money online is not impossible.

Although it may seem complicated, making money online is not difficult if you take the right steps and focus on growing your business. In this way, you can create a variety of profitable businesses that can build on each other. For example, many of the creators of online courses have first made a name for themselves through a free personal blog offering advice on a certain topic or through a YouTube channel. So you should think about how you can build on this by creating new sources of income around your personal brand.
