The Honest Guide for Making Lots of Money Online

A lot of companies speak about making money online, but few of them are actually talking about decent and large amounts. Earning enough to pay your bills and afford yourself some pleasures from the comfort of your own house is entirely feasible, but you should never expect it to happen by any simple tasks like clicking on ads or watching videos.

In other words, you can only make decent money online by investing enough knowledge and effort, not by doing something anybody can, like clicking on ads.


Everybody uses the internet and software applications these days, which means that there was need for programmers to build them. Coding can be very intimidating at first, but don’t worry! It’s far easier than it looks, especially that there are a lot of tools out there ready to ease your work: Sublime Text, Notepad++, and a lot more. Furthermore, any programmer on the planet writes garbage lines of code in almost every hour of work, regardless of how skilled he is. Programming is one of the fields of the future, and more and more companies are hiring. Building yourself a portfolio page and several projects written in programming languages like JavaScript, Python, or PHP will surely grant you at least an entry-level job in the field! Of course, you must know what you’re doing, and there are many websites to learn from: FreeCodeCamp, W3Schools, Codecademy, and so on.

Content writing

There are tons of content writing jobs on the internet, from articles, reviews, emails, and all the way to simple posts on Facebook or Twitter. Therefore, if you have a passion for writing anything, you can try your luck in the field. Grammatical accuracy is a ‘must’, and writing about stuff like fashion, technology, or politics will also obviously require some knowledge about those fields. Everybody likes to read something, which means that content writers will always be wanted for jobs.

Video editing

Let’s face it: people are watching videos more often than they read articles, which means that you can also give it a try in the vlogging area. Apps for creating video content are everywhere on the web these days, although you’ll still need a powerful video card for running them smoothly. If you feel like you have something important to say, don’t hesitate and create your own YouTube channel! You’ll get to monetize it once you reach a minimum number of subscribers.

Betting on sports

Online betting is not exactly the kind of activity that will assure you a constant income, but you may earn a fortune from it if you’re lucky and if you have a good strategy. First of all, you must know a bit about the sport and team that you’re betting on. Second, you must not get greedy, as you’ll have to use big stakes for low odds. Reinvesting your prize several times in a row is a sure way to win some decent amounts without investing too much.

The online realm is loaded with job offerings in fields like programming, dropshipping, content writing, and a lot more. So be sure to learn something about such domains before applying for online jobs because nobody wants to hire a novice and pay him too much money. There are countless online courses too, and many of them are even free of charge. Therefore, you can take advantage of them and develop some skills for several months or maybe even weeks. After all, what else could it possibly be better than to assure yourself a prosperous future?
