I always thought that getting rich was something that only happened in fairy tales and books…
Well, I was wrong.
Yes, you can make real money online without any scams. All you need is a computer, internet access, and the willingness to learn how to earn money online legitimately.
I have been where you are right now and I know how difficult it can be to believe that someone can actually help you make money online without a scam.
You have been told so many lies by so-called internet marketers that you probably don’t know who to trust. But please… don’t be fooled by fake promises of riches – because they are out there to profit from your desire to become financially independent.
You see, not all internet marketers are created equal and it’s up to you to separate the good from the bad.
You’ll never know if a get-rich-quick scheme is a scam unless you try it – so I implore you to avoid falling victim to anyone claiming to have a magic pill to make you rich.
Instead, you need to understand that there are genuine opportunities online to make money, but you need to seek them out and learn how to navigate them successfully.
I have compiled a list of every fraud scheme that I am aware of – and I would like to keep this list up-to-date as new ones emerge. So here’s a comprehensive list of all the tricks, traps, and hacks that you need to know about before you start making money online.
Join A Real-Life MLM For Free
Did you know that you can make money online without joining a multi-level marketing (MLM) company?
Although it’s perfectly legal for an MLM company to get you to pay for its products, there are options that don’t require you to do this.
One way to make money online without becoming involved with an MLM is to tuttle for free on various classified sites such as eBay or Craigslist.
You can find gigs such as logo designing, SEO writing, and social media management, all of which require minimal learning – and many of which you can do from home.
The beauty of these sites is that you can reach potential customers without having to pay for advertising which is often the case with traditional methods of marketing. Besides, you don’t have to spend money on costly advertising campaigns, so you can keep all the profits for yourself.
Don’t Fall For The Latest Social Media Scam
If one of the first things that you’ll be told when you pursue a career in digital marketing is to “stay away from Twitter” because it’s “all trash” and “full of scams”… you’re in for a big disappointment.
First of all, I would like to point out that Twitter isn’t trash. In fact, the opposite is true. It’s a vibrant community of individuals who are hungry to share ideas and information.
Also, I would like to point out that not all scams – or marketing techniques – work on Twitter. To be exact, some of them do and some of them don’t. So if you want to make money online legitimately, avoid using scams on social media.
Rent Your Extra Car – Or Take A Working Vacation
One of the best ways to make money online without any formal training is to rent your extra car.
You see, there are plenty of companies that need people to drive for them, so they can get from one place to another more quickly. These companies usually want full-time drivers, but you can qualify if you drive for them just a few times a week.
You can put in a little bit of effort to find these companies and sign up for a working vacation – which is basically what it is – and you’ll be able to make a good chunk of change. All you need is a reliable car, a smart phone, and a desire to make money – no driver’s license required.
Do A Blog About Something You Know Expertly
Blogs can be a great source of income, but you have to do them right. If you’re going to do a blog, make sure that you have something special to say. Otherwise, you’ll just be copying someone else’s content and trying to monetise on top of it.
For example, if you’re an expert nail polish – or hairstyle – blogger, then you could start a blog in which you review products and give tips on how to achieve a specific look. As long as you can verify that you’re an expert in this field, you’ll be able to get some quality content with which to blog. You don’t need to have a full-fledged blog to do this – you can simply use a free blog platform like WordPress to maintain a personal website.
Now, you could become an expert in hairstyling by reading books, taking university-level courses, and learning from professional hair stylists. However, this takes a lot of time. Instead, you could simply create a blog and write about your experiences – good and bad – as a hair stylist. Inevitably, you’ll encounter problems that you’ll need to solve. To get started, simply search for “How to write a successful hair blog” and you’ll come up with some great tips on how to make money online from a hairstylist’s perspective.
Sell Your Photos On Line
Another great way to make money online without any experience is to sell your photos on line.
If you have a decent camera and a decent laptop, you can simply take photos of yourself and your surroundings – be it – a local park or a red carpet – and sell them online. You’ll need to do some research to find the right companies to work with, but you’ll quickly find that this is a very profitable niche. You’ll even be able to find freelance photo gigs if you don’t want to set up shop – just search for “photo gigs” online.
Create A YouTube Channel
If you’ve got a decent camera and a desire to make videos, you can set up a Youtube channel.
Once you’ve got a decent number of subscribers, you can put in a few hours a week – either partially or full-time – to create short product reviews on various products – mostly beauty and skincare related items – and you’ll be able to make a good chunk of change.
Use Your Phone To Its Full Potential
With the right software and a little bit of know-how, your phone can do so much.
For example, you can use your phone to access the internet, watch movies, play games, create documents, and even write e-mails. These are just some of the things that your phone can do. If you want to make money online, you should see what your phone can do and potential business ideas that you can develop based on this – even if it’s just on the side – using a tool like SurveyMonkey.
