If you’re looking for ways to make your money grow this year, then if you are like most people you will be looking for ways to make money online… whether this is through investing, creating a business, or even a website you use for content marketing purposes.
In today’s increasingly web based world there are, of course, many more opportunities to make money online. The main benefit of making money online is that it opens you up to the world of remote living, in that you can practically work from anywhere there’s an internet connection… resulting in many people becoming ‘world citizens’ that engage in long term travel, or parents squeezing the most out of their family time as a result of working more flexible hours.
The huge benefit of making money online, in reality, is the fact you tend to be using automated systems that don’t require you to trade your time for money – for instance, if you look at the fact there is now an automated trading system that takes care of your trades, without you even needing to be present… you could quite literally be swimming laps in the swimming pool of a luxurious hotel, whilst the trading system is taking care of your trades in accordance with rules you set.
Gone are the days where you would have to sit watching the markets adjust throughout the day – today, you can simply set rules and automate the whole process, in fact, you can even learn how to trade online with no previous experience, simply through watching YouTube content or purchasing a premium course that teaches you to an advanced level.
In that sense, here are three simple ways almost everyone can start making their money grow online in the new year.
You can trade in a variety of things from foreign currency, cryptocurrency, or the more traditional stock market. Of course, with this option, there’s no guarantee you will make money – as you could just as easily lose money, yet with the right rules in place and a well-informed strategy (along with a little insight and perhaps a lot of luck) you can very rapidly make your money grow from trading online. If you focus on trading Bitcoin, this gives you opportunities to make careful investments. To make informed decisions, you can start by acquiring knowledge about cryptocurrency topics (Spreads and Commissions, Leverage, Market volatility etc.), and then do some further research on bitcoin trading platforms, best trading practices, and investment strategies.
Create a Blog
The main benefit of creating a blog is that, whilst it can take some time to monetise, you are essentially developing a digital asset that can be leveraged time and time again. If you build a large enough following there are many advertisers that will pay to reach your audience, and some of these deals can be very profitable – particularly if it’s an affiliate campaign where you promote a particular product (such as an online course that you tend to earn 50% commission on).
When you consider that many online courses sell for over $495, that’s a lot of money you could make in a pretty short period of time – presuming you have a solid audience base.
Perhaps a more traditional, in fact, a rather old school option is to sell things on eBay or the more recent Etsy site which provides a platform for creatives to promote handmade items from all over the world.
