The internet has made life much easier in many ways for a lot of people, and one of the ways it has done this is through enabling them to make money online. There are several different ways to make money online some of which are mentioned below.
- Buy domain names for resale
In the online world, domains are the equivalent of undeveloped real estate in the real world. As such, it is quite easy to make money by speculating on the chance that someone will want to register a domain that you have in your possession and pay a good amount for the purchase.
To increase the chances on being able to re-sell a domain name, you have to make wise purchases. Sometimes, this is down to luck, but you can improve your chances of purchasing the right domain names for resale by using certain online tools, such as keyword analysis in search engines, in order to predict what people are looking for through search engines.
Being able to identify and catch trends before your other competitors will mean that you are able to buy the most prime real estate (read: domain) on the internet, which means that you can get the best value for money from the sale.
- Earn some quick cash through online surveys.
One of the quick ways to earn money online is through online surveys. Several companies as well as marketing companies pay money to people who are willing to take their time to answer some questions that will give them necessary feedback about different aspects of their businesses.
The money that is paid for online surveys is usually not much. However, the questions that you have to answer through the surveys are quite easy, which means you can do several surveys and earn more money.
- If you are a fast typist transcribe audio for quick cash

The transcriptions are important for several different purposes one of which is to allow hearing impaired people to make use of such multimedia content.
- Make quick cash by editing audio in webinars, interviews and webcasts
If you have video editing and audio editing skills, you can make money online by improving the visual and aural quality of webinars, interviews and webcasts that are played online and get paid for it.
- Get into affiliate marketing
If you don’t have any of the skills mentioned above, or if you have the potential to start your own online business, one of the ways to do so is by marketing other people’s products and getting a commission for the sale.
This is called online affiliate marketing and is akin to being a salesman in the real world, but without all the troubles of walking around and doing a lot of the heavy lifting on your own.
As an affiliate marketer, your goal is simply to convince as many people as you can to purchase a specific product that you are promoting after which you can earn a commission from every sale.
