The number of people buying things online is increasing each year. Not only the big player like Amazon or eBay, a small online store that runs only by one person is also getting more popular by the minute. It is because making an online store is easy and completely free.

You can make use of Facebook or Instagram to post items that you are selling. All you need is take a good picture of your item, put a nice description on it, and do some marketing so the person interested in buying your goods is visiting your Facebook page.

You also can make a good use of Amazon and eBay to sell your things. On Amazon, you buy products and ship them to Amazon for them to store. When someone buys your product, Amazon does all the work for you, such as packing and shipping them to the customer and send the money to you (after taking their cut).

If you love making a short story or even a novel, you can try to sell them on Amazon Kindle or Apple's iTunes Connect or similar apps in Google Play. This is an amazing source of passive income, but there is a large amount of effort before you can make some money.

Amazon Kindle or Apple's iTunes is the place for a vast majority of the digital-book reading market. You don't have to spend a lot of money to put your books in those two market place, but you need a lot, I mean a lot of time to invest. Not only in writing the E-books but also marketing them.

Freelance Writing

This is the most popular way to make money online for most people. A lot of successful freelance writers are able to get 50 cents to $1 per word! That's $1000 per article with 1000 words!

But of course, you don't start that way. You have a lot of homework to do, such as building a portfolio, resume, so on and so forth. If writing is your strong skill, then we highly recommend you to go down this road to make money.

Yes, it takes dedication and a certain amount of time. But if you serious and love to write, freelance writing can be highly profitable. Assuming you love writing, so let's move forward to talk about making money out of it.

Before you reach all of those freelance writing companies, you need to have a web presence, or as we humbly say a blog. If you don't have one, creating online portfolio such as LinkedIn is a good start. 

When you are ready, create an account on one of the freelance writing websites and start writing and build up your resume. Here are some freelance writing websites that you can start with:

Do Micro-Jobs on Mechanical Turk

If writing an ebook or becoming a freelance writer is somewhat too difficult for you, you can work on a more simple thing like the one offered by Mechanical Turk. It is Amazon's take on micro-jobs. It is small and easy jobs that you can do for other people that they call HITs, or Human Intelligence Tasks.

The job is something that most people can do, such as listing off some URLs with certain kind of images for one cent. Indeed they don't pay much. But if you do hundreds of well-paying HITs, you can make some decent amount of money online if you need money as fast as possible.
