How to Make a Full-Time Income Online

Updated on December 26, 2013

There are so many ways to make money online. But, there are only a few ways that are really efficient. You must also learn that making money online isn't easy! It may take years and maybe a lifetime to finally start making a full-time income online. I will also tell you that you will not get rich overnight when you are bogging and using freelance writing sites. You will always start of with a very low daily income but, will steadily grow after more and more work.

7. Sell Stock Photos

Do you love to take photos with? What if I told you that you can actually make money online by selling your work! It may be hard to believe but, millions of people have already started doing this. People are willing to buy your photos. If your photos are decent you should have a legitimate chance at selling your work and turning that into a decent side profit. A neighbor of mine makes a $600 monthly income across several of these sites. iStockphoto, ShutterStock, and Fotolia.

6. Completing Offers

Websites like Points2Shop, CashCrate, and Prize Rebel are willing to pay you money every time you complete an advertisers offer. For example an advertiser wants you to make an account for there site and possibly use one of their services. In return the site is willing to give you money. In my personal experience I have been able to easily make between $10-$25 each day using various sites. I would strongly recommend you make a separate email for this method; for you will receive a ton of junk mail and spam.

5. Complete Online Surveys

There are many online survey sites that are willing to pay you good bucks for you to fill in surveys. But, do not sign up for just one site. Sign up for multiple sites but make sure that the sites are secure and have a good reputation. The best sites that will pay you money are Survey Savvy, My Survey, ACOP, Opinion Outpost, and Survey Head are only some of the best survey sites around. But, my personal favorite would be Global Test Market. They are by far the best Survey Panel in my opinion. Doing surveys won't make you rich but, it is a good passive income. I know people who average about $300-$400 a month using online surveys but then again they have signed up for multiple sites. I would suggest using all the sites above.

Make sure you research any site before you start taking surveys for the site to avoid scams.

4. Swagbucks

On Swagbucks you can earn money for doing many things. You can earn money by watching videos, surveys, tasks, completing offers, using the swagbucks search engine, and playing GAMES. You can redeem your points easily for a variety of prizes. I have made over $50 in a short period of time from Swagbucks. I am actually averaging over $40 a month using this site it is just that easy. You only need to spend about 20 minutes on this website and you will be earning just like me. Swagbucks is just about the easiest way to make money via the internet I strongly urge you to join this so I have pasted the sign up link below for swagbucks. Also if you are a child over the age of 13 you are also able to sign up.

3. Buying/Selling on Ebay

This is a very fun and easy way to make money online.There are a couple easy methods in which you can make big money on Ebay.

  • Sell the stuff you already own
  • Buy a cheap item on Ebay and sell it for a higher price for a good profit

Before you buy any product make sure the seller seems like a person you can trust and make sure you research the product to see what you could potentially sell it for. There are also other factors involving this method like the product demand. If the product you are selling is in high demand you are probably going to sell it much faster.

2. Start a Blog

You must have good writing skills and know how to direct traffic towards your site. Starting a blog may not be the best way to make money for a newcomer to making money online. But, if you know what you are doing it could turn into some big time cash. More and more people each and every day are discovering that they can earn full-time via a blog. You just have to put in the effort and remember that you will never receive a ton of traffic right of the bat. It may take years to make a considerable daily income from your blog.

1. Become a Freelance Writer

There are many sites that are willing to pay you big bucks for sharing what is on your mind. I have made a lot of money from freelance writing but you must focus on giving your best effort and take making money off your mind. Also, you have to have a lot of patience. In my first couple of months I only made a few cents per day put each month I have noticed my income going up steadily since then. You don't need great writing skills like you do in a blog and don't have to wait as long to get a decent amount of traffic to your site. Some good freelance writing sites are HubPages and Squidoo.

These sites and ideas will help you make money online. You must remember that you will not be making a large amount of money in your first couple of years; all great businesses take years to get to there full potential. You must treat making money online like a business if you want true success. To be honest it is very hard to make money online and very few people become successful in there time trying.

      Making money on ebay requires a bit of luck and strategy! You should know what you really are doing so I recommend experienced people for this kind of money.
