How To Make Money Today

Making Money Has Never Been Easier - Just Follow These Tips

Since I am not a make money expert, I thought I would tell you how to make money today in an economy that really only looks out for the rich and those fat bankers and people who think they run each country, how to make money is a simple concept and one that should be approached from the angle of looking and peering out of your wallet instead of looking inside it.

Money is a thing that everyone is looking to make some extra money, even your grandma maybe trawling the streets looking for business or your dad is selling his toe nail clippings saying they are the genuine article from Elvis Presley's toes, whatever the case there are scammers that exist in the real offline world as well as the online realm and it is becoming common for new scams to become really complex that involve technological gimmicks and re-directs and guilt ridden marketing literature that makes people purchase because they may feel sorry for the little kid who has had both of his arms and legs sawn off by a midget clown in downtown Russia or the case of someone who had no face so he needed donations to help re-build his face.

Of course there are some legitimate ways to make money online and I'm sure you've come across them, although what many people don't realise is that some if not most of these promise overnight income or within a time frame that is just inconceivably impossible that it deceives the would be income earner into parting with their cash on a product that will just sit on their hard drive.

I like to think of making money as a way of learning through what you yourself want to do, rather than others telling you what you should do, when making money you coulddo it online or exclusively offline, it's up to you, if you know what your strengths and weaknesses are then go for it and refine things later on.

Making any kind of money is really all about just sticking with something and seeing it through to the end, if not the end then the ongoing end that never ends!

If you take a broad general view of all the different products people are selling whether that be through radio, TV, or online or even in the street, you'll see that anything is potentially a niche to call your own if you have the right enthusiasm to see it through, of course you don't want to get caught up the fads of the year or dead ends that don't lead you anywhere, there was a story about someone who spent a few years trying to set up a stall selling multi coloured paper clips and because he didn't do the research into his business idea to make money his money making failed because it was a shit idea to begin with.

Now what if he took that idea and researched possible income combinations like turning these multi coloured paper clips into little wire sculptures or created thicker paper clips that could incorporate a brand name design on it, if he took the time to think about it, he would have realised his idea was a load of arse and done something about it to correct and align himself on the money making path.

Typically making money relies heavily on someone having an interest or a hobby that drives them to make money out of it, that's the key, if you don't have that, then making money becomes some dirty and shallow method that could evolve into a way of conning people or some mis-direction on your part and that is not good at all.

So here's what you could do.

Write a list of all the things you are interested in and number them from 1 to 10 or more depending on how many things you can think of and start working out money making ideas for all on your list, then start implementing them straight away.

For best results try and lump a few together, say like for example if you have a niche about sports wear, then create ideas based around these, say you do designs for sports wear, well make sure you cover as many sports as possible with your designs, so you are targeting multiple areas.

Making money starts with an idea and becomes what you want it to be later, try these ten top niche markets to study for making money with, choose a good idea in one of these areas.

I tried freelancing writing and it didn't work out for me as it wasn't fun, I like the idea of writing what you want at your own pace and then it feels like your having fun, take Hubpages for example, I like it here and the income that you can create is more meaningful than $2 per 250 word article.

I lost my social life long ago when I got on the internet over 6 years ago.

Cheers now coolguy!


iamcoolguy 6 years ago

The easiest way to make money is to be an article freelancer. At first your pay will be small ($2 per 250 words), and it will increase when you work harder.

And yes, like Bilaras commented, making money will make you lose your social life. Maybe I should say making money from home makes you feel lonely to the extreme, especially if you write for a living.

Now I'm feeling lonely all over again... :(

Thanks Peter!

Yeah even £20 a day would be £140 a week, it's a basic wage but it would be doable, I would be happy with a scenario that has residual income from multiple income streams, so that, say my adsense would be £20 a day and any affiliate marketing would be another £20 a day, then my own product which would make a sale a day and so on and it all adds up.

It's a far great business model for making money!!

Cheers there Thomas!

I like to look on earning money as selfish to begin with until it's sustainable and then donating a portion of earnings to some noble causes later on down the line when you can, although I prefer local charities and organisations as these I can see the benefits locally.

Got to start making sustainable income first though!

You are right, there are so many possibilities of making money. Not any generation had such opportunity to earn right and to live calm, without fear of hunger. Of course this system is not perfect, there are still many that suffer poverty, but there is nothing better. This is all we got.

waynet 6 years ago from Hull City United Kingdom Author

Yes I think that's it and many people may not be that persistent, in particular with an online business, people just slap a website up and that's it mainly, no marketing or some half arsed marketing that gets them nowhere.

Thanks for your comment athard!


athard 6 years ago

The key is to be persistent, constantly evaluate your efforts and results an fine tune it until you are as efficient as you can be. To make money today, you have to be very motivated and persistent. Of course, that is what sets apart the successful from the unsuccessful in any field.

This hubpage Hasawaywithwords, wasn't intended to be a how to make money persay, as it was intended as a brief look at what you could do to start with a few insights along the way, there are too many people already re-writing the same thing about making money, so I thought, why not do something different and just do a part insight part inspirational hubpage instead!

You can make money online by writing articles for Realtors looking to promote themselves in their markets. They will pay by the article or by the hour. Blogging is an exceptional method of marketing and personal promotion that sales agents do not understand. It can be very steady work with unlimited opportunities.

Thanks for that great comment Vandelay!

Focus is the key to a business online or offline, I very much agree.


Vandelay profile image

Vandelay 6 years ago from United States

Focusing your interest is always the key to on-line money making. Anyone can post a hundred Hubpages or Blogs, but if you hate what you are doing, you will give up. Without constant updates, your traffic (and income) will quickly go away! Focus on what motivates you! Find your area of expertise; if you are a CPA, provide tax tips, if you are an IT expert, give advice, just make sure that you provide real help and opinions and keep at it! Focus first on the content, the money will hopefully follow!

Just like I said, plan from the very beginning and look elsewhere for the how to make money content, because that's what is littering the internet.

The general idea is to start off in one area then build up in that niche area and then expand your business into other areas and that's it, that's how businesses grow, it's simple, so it's just a case of getting on with it instead of saying I'll do it tomorrow!

Cheers now Opinionduck and Intelligentplan!

Sticking with your business idea is one great way of seeing something through and never give up.

And adsense is making people rich all over the internet when they use it properly and with hubpages is only a small fraction of that income stream, it's widely regarded that to gain from adsense is to use it on your own site or blog.
