For a lot of people, making money online would be an absolute dream come true. If they could find a way to make money with a website or some other online stuff, they might even quit their job to focus on entrepreneurship, spend more time with their family, and ultimately take back control of their lives and their time too.
The crazy thing is, it’s not a pipe dream to make money online. I know many people who earn money online, in their own way, through blogs, online courses and creative marketing campaigns.
Here’s the good news! Many making money online methods aren’t complex at all. As with any business venture, it takes time for your online revenue to rise. You need to be able to dedicate the time and resources required to get your project off the ground, and you need the courage and mental strength to stick to it even if your journey starts slow.
If you’re trying to make money online but don’t know where to start, here are some of the best and most practical strategies to consider:
#1: Google AdSense
You’ve definitely seen Google ads, if you’ve visited any of the websites. These ads are all over the place, and for good reason. These are not only easy to set up on any website, but they can also be lucrative once the website begins to pull in a steady amount of traffic.
One of the cool stuff about Google AdSense is that setup is so simple. If you have a blog or website, you can sign up for a free account on Google AdSense. Google will send you a unique code from there, which you can paste into your website. Google takes it from there, recording in your name your page views, traffic and earnings. No maintenance is needed to get this thing running, which makes it an absolute no-brainer if you already have a website.

#2: Affiliate Marketing
You should also look at affiliate marketing, if you’re looking for a better option to make money online. Whether you have a website or are still thinking up ideas for a blog, you can try this. You collaborate with brands and companies with affiliate marketing within the scope of your website. When you mention a product or service on your website or blogs, you use a special affiliate code that you got when you signed up with that specific affiliate program to connect to that product or service. From there, every time someone purchases a product or service through your affiliate links, you’ll make money.
In general, you’re going to want to partner with affiliates that’s related to your blog idea. Since Dos2Shell is a technology blog site, if in case we go for affiliate marketing, we will focus all of our affiliate energy on technology related links.
#3: Online Courses
If you have any skill you can teach anyone, an online course that you can sell online can also be set up. Online courses can be found which teach everything from cooking to marketing or even freelance writing and digital marketing. You can sell your courses on platforms like Udemy, and make money online.
If you’re looking for an inspiration, I found a course on such a platform for $10, and there were more than 80,000 people who opted for the course and given a good rating. That generates$8,000,000, of which the company cuts it’s commission of 50%, which makes it a $4,000,000 income for the owner of the course. And let me tell you. . . That’s a super huge amount. And now just imagine you making money online from such a thing. Extra boost of inspiration. . . Imagine you’ve uploaded 5 such courses on the platform. . . Hope you’re able to calculate the amount in your mind.
YouTube is another website or platform that has made it possible for people to make money online. There’s a lot of YouTube channels out there on any subject. Think of any subject, and there are n number of channels working on that specific topic alone. And most people with a big followers count are earning some money in exchange for their videos and their time.
Last year Forbes revealed some of the YouTube scene’s greatest stars. The most famous player, Ryan Kaji, won $27 million of that on his own. That means, Kaji earned $27 million in one year, from YouTube alone. And guess what, Kaji is an eight year old kid.
Probably, you won’t earn that much amount of money. But, using the platform’s own ad network, or having sponsored posts, you can start making money through YouTube. Starting a YouTube channel will provide a nice way to earn some cash on the side if you like to do videos.
