With the Wealthy Affiliate Starter membership you can be a free member for as long as you like, there’s no time limit. If you want to start learning how to make money online for free you can take the free training course and use their free website software to create your site on a free domain. At some point, you’re probably going to want to upgrade to the Premium membership so you can get full access to the training courses and community support and get help daily as you build your business. This is $49 per month. Everything you need is included, except $13.99 per year for your own domain which I recommend. There’s no other upsells or costs involved.
If I have a blog that is getting 100,000 page views a month that means that I’m probably getting at least 50,000 people to the site (most blogs will do between 1.2 to 1.4 pages per session). That means I have to try and get some small percentage of those people to buy something from me if I really want to do well. If I can’t get them to buy something then (in some cases) I have ads running on the site that will make me money anyways.
Beyond these great offerings, Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t demand high upfront fees. If you are just starting out and want to test the waters, you can sign up for free for their Starter Package to check them out. This was a big deal for me personally because after searching so long and seeing so many schemes, I was wary of investing my money into something that would not have any return. Then when you are ready to invest, their premium package is completely affordable and comes with 50 websites and higher payouts.
You can work as a virtual assistant through dedicated websites, such as Upwork or Zirtual. All kinds of skills are needed, and compensation can vary anywhere between $10 per hour to $100 or more. Obviously, the higher pay will be to people who have more technical skills, such as web building skills and marketing. But you can find work doing administrative tasks at the lower end of the pay scale.
20. Etsy – If you like to create arts and crafts, you can sell them on Etsy.It’s completely free to open an Etsy store. You simply sign up, post pictures of your creations and starting selling. You can choose your payment option, but PayPal is generally the easiest. Etsy makes it easy to sell and keep track of your inventory. There is a small listing fee and they take 3.5% of every sale you make.
