There have been times when I have been too scared to email my list for fear of ticking them off and unsubscribing, or fear of someone hitting the spam button, and even fear of that wonderful comment some people leave when they unsubscribe. It’s sort of a mental game…..there are always people who will unsubscribe and even people who won’t like you or your products.

If you’re crafty (and I mean that in more than one way, wink wink), you’ll enjoy Etsy. Handcrafted items are the bread and butter here. Plenty of people make decent side money on the site, which is basically an EBay for crafters and artists. Set up a sellers account with Etsy, and you’ll be asked to set up your virtual storefront and put up at least 5 goods for sale.
Multi-vendor marketplaces, like ThemeForest, can be very successful. Chose a niche and create a vendor website for it. Your marketplace could be anything, from a platform for local artists to sell their work on, to an online digital product store. Once set up, invite people in that industry to sell their products on your site. You take a percentage of their profits when items sell.
As someone who's been immersed in a number of online industries for quite some time, I know a thing or two about what it takes to succeed in this arena. However, just like you, I started at ground zero with little knowledge, but a great deal of passion. What I learned along the way were some invaluable lessons from failure that hurt at the time, but helped immensely in the grand scheme of things.
19. eBay – Of course you can’t read an article about making money online that doesn’t mention eBay. You can start an eBay store and get serious about it or you can just sell some stuff to declutter your home. Either way, I’ve made my fair share from selling on eBay and it’s still a popular way to earn money. If you decide to start an actual eBay store, you’ll want to find a drop-ship business like Doba that will store and ship items straight to your customers so you don’t have to deal with an inventory.
note: things are a little different since I wrote it, as the platform changed from a proprietary, site-locked currency to their own cryptocurrency, which can be taken and sold off-site, so for anyone who wants to mess with that, it might be worth considering listing some things for the currency as you might make more that way than you would inflating the shipping cost.
Hi! Just as a bit of background before I get into the main subject, I’m 16 and starting college with my major in Psychology and a minor in English/Creative Writing (dual-enrollment; I’m exclusively taking college classes that will fulfill my needs for both my high school diploma and Associates degree). I have a job at a local fast-food place, but I’m trying to help my parents pay for my tuition. Would taking on one of these online jobs as a side job be a good idea? I know this is more of an advice comment, but do you think it would be do more good or harm?
Maybe what you need is a job. It doesn’t matter which job search site you prefer using (even Craigslist) – Indeed tracks them all, and then some. You can find jobs posted on company websites, through temp agencies, and more at Indeed. If money is something you really need, Indeed is most definitely the place you want to visit to browse career opportunities.

I leverage all of my skills, especially my organizational skills & my ability to work well with little supervision, I have strong writing skills, am highly analytical, and have a strong background in metrics. My default is to say, “Yes I can do that!” This means I’ve worked all night to figure out a new platform before start of business. I have strong customer service skills. I work off hours for my clients’ convenience, whether they are traveling overseas & need to meet at a time that’s good for them, or because it’s easier to meet after the kids are in bed or on weekends.
I'd say the average rate per page is about $0.35. Most of my students in my course, Transcript Proofreading: Theory and Practice, begin at around 50 pages an hour with their first “real” jobs. We'll call that average — some students may read faster or slower. If the average student charges the average rate of $0.35 per page and reads at 50 pages an hour, that's $17.50 per hour. Not bad! What's cool is you're in control of your rate, and you can charge more for rush [work].
As for what equipment is required, you can proofread without an iPad (I did so for almost a year!) but I 100% recommend using one. I use an iPad Mini 2. Switching from laptop proofreading to iPad was a game changer for my business because of the $10 app I downloaded, iAnnotate. It has so many crazy-amazing tools that made my work so much faster and efficient than proofreading on my laptop.
However, some jobs do take a lot more work than that. I recently completed a 2-month long editing project with a major national company, and it required full-time work for me to reach my deadline in time. Because that meant I had to find sitters for my kids, and was not as able to devote myself to my other endeavors such as my writing and my blogs, I charged accordingly.
I tried Mechanical Turk fairly extensively back in the day, I'd say 3-4ish years ago (very rough guess), and gave up once I realized it was impossible to make more than, maybe, $2/hr on pointless, tedious activities, stuff like inputting receipts for 15 cents. Is there more dynamic work available now? What sorts of activities do you find yourself doing there? Do the employers pay more now?
E-books represent about 20 percent of all book sales in the U.S. The good news is you don’t have to be a publisher with deep pockets to get in on the action. As a solo internet entrepreneur, you can sell ebooks directly from your own website. You can sell your own works or sell a public domain work. Simply upload it to your website (or seller account on Amazon) and start publicizing it on your social media platforms, on your email list, your blog, website, etc.
ProofreadingPal uses a two-proofreader model to make sure each and every document is carefully checked by not one but two of their professional editors. To be successful, you’ll need to be comfortable proofreading for errors as well as editing for sentence structure, clarity, and overall style. ProofreadingPal is always accepting applications and actively hires about eight months out of the year!
Once you have this down, you’ll be a budding Etsy entrepreneur. Provide great quality to your customers, and they’ll often return. Many people are willing to pay a premium for quality handmade designs. Etsy (like EBay and Amazon) takes a cut off the top for selling items through their site. PayPal takes another cut, and you have to be careful with taxes on all income, so be diligent while building your online business.
While some might think that starting a blog is an arduous effort, when you understand the precise steps you need to take, it becomes far easier. It all starts in the decision of choosing a profitable niche and picking the right domain name. From there, you need to build your offers. You can easily sell things like mini-email courses, full-blown trainings, ebooks, and so on.
