What a huge, great list of ideas – bookmarked this as I know I’ll be coming back to go over it again and again. Here’s another item that could have made the list. I found a financial directory that’s useful for info on making money online. It’s http://money.madbeetech.com. What I like about it is that each directory listing includes ebooks and videos that can be instantly downloaded. All sorts of stuff for people who have their own website, and people who don’t (but still want to make money online).
High-ticket consulting or coaching: You could sell your own high-ticket consulting or coaching products from your website. You'll still need a website, merchant account, sales funnel, lead magnet and many other items. But you can easily earn a substantial amount of money from each individual customer, making it well worth the arduous setup required. 
Outstanding list post Eric, I too love list posts. Actually had to open up my Evernote and copy this stuff down. I’d like to share a couple of really outstanding resources for online business professionals: fizzleshow.com (These 3 guys are brilliant, they provide an online community and outstanding learning for new business owners) and Empire Flippers – (Both those guys are funny, smart and helpful, which is always important in a great resource!). Thanks and looking forward to more valuable stuff!
You must be at least 21 years old, have at least one year of licensed driving experience in the U.S. (three years if you’re under 23 years old), have a valid driver’s license and pass a background check. Also, your car must be a four-door, seat at least four passengers (excluding the driver), be registered in-state and be covered by in-state insurance.

Now, once you earn a reputation, you can start charging more and even earn a higher income. The goal here is to focus on a specific niche and become an expert in that niche. After that you can really thrive. When you first start and you have no experience, you’ll have to price yourself a bit lower. But once you become an expert in a specific niche, you can easily start charging more and increase your rates.
Just as a personal example, I own a website called DogFoodInsider.com. Most of the articles on that site have been written using freelancers I found on Elance.com. So, I would post a job on Elance saying that I need reviews of dog food. A bunch of freelance writers would come back with how much they charge, their experience, why they are an expert with dog food and writing dog food reviews, and then I can go ahead and choose from the list who I will hire. So, Elance.com is great, anybody can join, and in fact, any of the above services are open to any freelance writers.
However, anytime in life, when someone is paying every month, they are going to expect something great in return. If you decided to create a membership site that was based around fitness training course, why would they pay again next month if they got the training they wanted out of it in the first month? That amount of upkeep is one of the big cons to making money online with membership sites.
The market for drones is expanding. Companies hire out work like aerial inspection, photography and land mapping. So if you’re already a drone enthusiast, why not put your aircraft to work?

Before we dive into the top 7 ways to make money online, I need to go over a few things first. Do NOT expect easy money from the internet. The internet seems to be flooded these days with “gurus” and teachers trying to teach you how to make a ton of money, by next week, using a certain system or software program. Well, get rich quick is always a scam. You cannot make money easily online. It’s a business, just like any other. These guys like to sell products that can tell you that you can make money quickly, so that they can make money selling those products. So, get rich quick is ALWAYS going to be a scam.
Next, you’ll need the right tools. You can be as complicated or simple as you want depending on your comfort with audio equipment, but at the minimum you’ll want a microphone and software for recording your voice. Companies like Behringer, Blue, Focusrite, and others sell studio-quality plug-and-play podcast setups that can get you recording today.
Now, it’s time to plan out your show. If you’re doing an interview-style show, you’ll now want to start getting some guests involved. You can use your existing social network to reach out to people you already know or are connected with on Twitter or Facebook. You can also head to Medium or Amazon to find authors or experts on topics specific to your niche.
If you’ve got a way with words and expertise in a niche, there are plenty of sites that will pay for articles and content you write. Think of the sites you read regularly. What can you contribute to them that would be interesting? Research your niche and then look for ways to pitch articles. Many sites will simply have a submission or contact link in the footer. To get started, check out my full guide to becoming a freelance writer on the side and then submit your articles to places like Instash, Listverse, TopTenz, A List Apart, International Living, FundsforWriters, and Textbroker.
Fiverr: Israeli-based Fivver was started in 2010 by Shal Wininger and Micha Kaufam. It's a great resource for selling just about any service online. You can offer gigs as low as $5 but also get paid much more for upgrades and add-ons. There are plenty of providers earning 6 figures on Fiverr so it's definitely a worthwhile cause for generating a healthy income. Just ensure that you provide some serious value.

Rent out a parking spot. If you live in a busy or congested area and have parking to spare, you might be able to rent out your parking space for some quick cash when you’re not using it. Simply advertise your open parking space online including details on the location, whether it’s covered or uncovered, and your desired hourly, weekly, or monthly fee. If you want, you can even use a site like Just Park or download the Spot App to reach more potential customers.
If you offer freelance services or have a physical services business, then creating a blog is a must. On your blog, you can write about the services you offer and how they will benefit your clients. Importantly you can add a ‘Services’ page, outlining the services you provide, what they include, and any other important information potential clients may need. This is an effective way to promote your services, generate leads, and increase your revenue.

If you have a penchant for design or are familiar with blog/website set up, then this is a service that you can create and market to others.  This involves creating logos, social media icons, headers and other design elements of a website.  I like to refer to this as fairy blog mother services for newbie bloggers who don’t have a clue around how to set up a properly structured blog.  I’ve done this often for new bloggers wanting to set up a website but who have no clue about where to get started.


Making money online will take work and dedication.  This series is not meant to be a get rich quick scheme on how to make money online.  You will often do just as much if not more work as your day job.  The difference is that you will love what you’re because it’s something that allows you to control your time while doing something you love or are at the very least skilled or interested in doing.
Just like you can turn a profit on sharing your skills online, you can also do so using your knowledge. There are a variety of sites out there that will pay you to do research, answer questions, or be an on-call expert in a number of different industries. Have a nursing degree? You can pick up some extra cash when you’re off duty by answering medically-related questions. Off-duty handyman or plumber? You can do the same thing with home improvement questions. If you just enjoy researching, you can pull in some cash by doing research through a website like Wonder.
