If you are a budding photographer and would like to be paid for your craft then you should consider setting up your own photography website. This is a great way to not only promote your services as a photographer but also to sell your images. You can charge visitors a fee to download your images. Or, if you’d rather, turn your site into a paid membership site, with free downloads of all images for paying subscribers.
“My favourite tip for making money online is to be very clear on what it is that you want to achieve and then making sure you ONLY work on tasks which will help you achieve that goal. It’s very easy when starting to build an online business to get caught up in busy work but not to do the important tasks that will actually make a difference. If you are not sure which tasks will make a difference then spend time learning before executing. It’ll make a big difference.
What Employees Say: “VIPKID pays between $14-22 an hour, plus more in incentives some months. Most kids are fun and well behaved. You create your own schedule and work as little or much as you want. The materials are already provided, you just have to review them beforehand and plan out how you want to teach the materials and which props you want to use.” —Current ESL Teacher

“My top tip for making money online is arbitrage, taking advantage of price differences between two different markets, using a service like Fiverr. Essentially, you create a website offering a service like acquiring Twitter followers or Facebook likes for businesses or other interested parties. You then create simple Facebook ads marketing say, 1,000 followers for $100. Once you’ve acquired a couple customers, you go to Fiverr and pay $5 to $15 for the 1,000 followers for your new clients. You could take advantage of the price difference for any Fiverr offering including logos, designs, cartoon headshots, and more. It’s a very simple way to make money and a great introduction to entrepreneurship!”
For those unfamiliar with affiliate marketing, it’s simply referral marketing where you earn a commission. Let’s say that you have a website and refer a book on Amazon. When the visitor clicks the affiliate link and buys the book, Amazon will pay you a percentage of the sale. People love affiliate marketing because they can start earning money passively with few startup costs.
