While we tend to think that the information, services, etc. we avail online are free of cost, a little investigation of how these sites work would show that in many cases someone, somewhere is making money by us going online and visiting a particular page that interest us.
Some of the most common methods of making money online are listed below:
"Online Selling" - it can be anything; physical, a service, information, ideas, etc. The term itself denotes that someone is making money out of it. In a number of cases, online selling is the most appropriate and efficient way to get the item across to the customer. Online coupons for retailers are a related money making / saving option.
"Online Trading" - a very good example would be trading in shares and is a corollary to the previous point, though different in that the money is made (or lost) in the difference between the purchase price and the sale price.
"Online Service Business" - the whole IT / ITeS /BPO / KPO industry would not have survived without these, and it sure pays (even though less than before)!
"Creating Informatic Products" - e-learning methods are a hot sell in any kind of society and economy. They are also one of the more recession-proof offerings than most other options.
"Affiliate Marketing" - money given to a person or entity for directing customers to a particular site through his (or their) marketing efforts.
"List Building and Lead Generation" - generating, updating and selling (mail) addresses is another method of making money online. This can be particularly remunerative if the list(s) are customized to fit the product to a particular set of customers; more likely to purchase that product.
"Web Designing" - an obvious method of making money online and would include aspects of advertisement, content website, digital entrepreneurship, etc.
"Starting a Blog" - a well designed, relevant and regularly updated blog with a lot of traffic can become a money spinner.
"Starting an Online Store" - Amazon is a great example.
"Online Money Transfers" - saves money, effort and the environment!
Some lucrative online money making options, though having questionable moral and societal standing and/or approval:
"Online Gambling" - does not require too much elaboration; someone's loss is another person's gain so there is always someone making money!
"Prepaid Porn" - elaboration again not necessary!
"Internet Fraud" - the possibilities and examples are too numerous and left to the imagination!
Any, or better still, a combination of the above options allows "regular" people to use "regular" ways to make money online and quite often earn more than what one would be doing at a "regular" job!
