How to Make MONEY at Home ONLINE

Niche Websites

Niche websites, which can be loosely described as small websites that cover a very specific niche, went through a boom period during the late 2000s and through to around 2012. The typical way money is made through niche websites is via advertising revenue from Google Adsense and also affiliate income, which is usually via the Amazon Associates program.

These websites will usually cover a sub-section of a niche. For example, a niche website might protect information about rowing machines, including reviews, buying guides, and user information. People visit the website looking for this information, Then, the niche website owner makes income by placing blocks of advertising on the website pages or through commissions by referring visitors to the website to other websites that sell the products being covered.

Building niche websites will usually require some Search Engine Optimization (SEO) knowledge, and this is where you work on building your website in a manner that Google will show when people search for keywords related to the content on your website. SEO in itself is a very broad topic, but it does take some time to master and can also be subject to regular changes to best practices.

Nonetheless, niche websites are a great way to start making money online.

Authority Websites

This is a term often used in internet marketing circles to define a large website within a certain niche. Using the niche website example above, where a website on rowing machines would be deemed as a niche website, an authority site would be a broader fitness website, perhaps one that provides information on various types of exercise equipment, not just rowing machines.

Other characteristics of authority websites include an email opt-in form where the website owner attempts to get visitors to the website to “opt-in” for email updates or perhaps a short guide or information product.

Authority websites will also typically have a social media presence, perhaps a user forum, and they cover the given niche in extensive detail. As the name suggests, when building an authority website, you aim to become one of, if not the main, authority or go-to resource within that niche.

Niche websites typically get the majority of their traffic from Google via YOU’RE. Your authority website will usually have a far broader range of traffic sources and will often receive visitors from another website that refers people to the information on your site.

Affiliate Marketing

This can be done with or without a website but is usually done via a website. Never built a website before? Don’t worry; it is very simple to do, and there are plenty of useful training resources to help!

You make money with affiliate marketing by being the “middle man” (or woman!) that connects prospective customers with businesses (often other websites) that offer products or services that help those customers. Sometimes, you can make a commission just for sending potential customers to another website; sometimes, you can earn money when those potential customers register for a free trial or give their contact details, but usually, you make money when they make a purchase.

The percentage commission that you earn varies greatly, but suffice it to say that there is high income to be made through affiliate marketing once you get the hang of it!


A blog is essentially just a website that is updated with regular content. Blogging is the act of running that website, and as a blogger, you are usually the face of the blog and the person who produces all the articles on it. This is not always the case, but it is more often than not.

Really, a blog is just like an authority website, though the main difference is the personality that is infused into the website through your thoughts and opinions.

Blogging often takes a while to produce income because it requires you to build an audience or community first, but once you have that community in place, provided that you keep providing valuable information to your fans, you can start to “monetize” that community by offering advertising, products or services that serve the community. These can be products or services that you create or own or things that you promote as an affiliate to make affiliate commissions from.

Drop Shipping

Drop shipping may sound complicated, but it is simpler than it sounds. When manufacturers, wholesalers, and distributors get an order from a retailer, the purchased product is packed up and delivered to the buyer with the address of the retailer on the package. This is what drop shipping is.

When you become involved in this business, you find the items you wish to sell and find suppliers who drop ship to fill the orders. Some popular products to do this are books, toys, video games, electronics, and music. However, many other items are good for the drop shipping business.


Some people make money online by writing their e-books, but that is not the only way these digital books can help you earn an online income. There are internet companies that you can sell these books as well as resell them.

You can also earn by promoting e-books. This can easily be done by signing up with an affiliate such as Amazon. You then enable your website(s) in order to make a commission on any sales generated from your promotions.

There are many benefits to this work-from-home online opportunity. There is no stock for you to store or keep track of; the overhead cost is little to nothing and is zero investment on your part.

Paid Advertisement Consultant

Building up a business such as this involves several steps, but once you complete them all, you are ready to go down the road of earning an online income. Not much is actually required, and several client projects can be done at one time.


If writing is something you enjoy and have a knack for, SEO can earn you a nice online income. Simply put, SEO is content writing that revolves around providing content that does two important things. Number one is providing written content that targeted audiences will enjoy reading about. The second thing is writing in a way that search engines will pick up and understand so the audiences are trafficked to a specific website. This is why it is known as search engine optimization (SEO).


Making money on eBay can be both financially rewarding and fun, and there are numerous ways to do so. Some people sell items as individuals, while others open up eBay stores for a more professional path to online income. It can be done either part-time or full-time depending on your income needs and the time you have available to put into your business.

Items for sale can be found in your home, through thrift store shopping, and by dropshipping. E-bay itself supplies you with all the tools and information you need in order to do well as long as you are dedicated to making a success from your experience.


Just as with E-bay, selling items on Amazon can be a great source of online income. The simplest way to do this is to purchase items at traditional retail spots and sell them on Amazon for a higher percentage. The great part about Amazon selling is that once you purchase your items to sell, you send them on to Amazon’s warehouse. They store it and ship it for you while you get to make a tidy profit, less the tax, shipping, and fees charged by Amazon.
