First off, does legitimate online money making even exist anymore? Well I’ve got to tell you, when I look at the masses of Nigerian conmen emails, all the bank fraud emails and all the spamming for Viagra I sometimes wonder. See the thing is that the internet is a great opportunity. But then it’s a great opportunity for thieves and beggars as well as for legitimate online money making enthusiasts.
Now straight of the bat; I’m not even going to discuss the thievery or beggary, both fall in the crooks category. Let’s rather have a look at some of the options that are ethical, legal and very profitable. And the good news is that there are many of these legitimate online money making opportunities right under your nose. You might even have used some of them, gaining a desirable product and putting some food, sometimes caviar, on someone else’s plate in the same process.
Let’s just broadly look at three ideas to get you started. Buying stuff wholesale and then selling them off in smaller packages. Secondly providing a service to people. And then lastly, and also definitely my favourite, promoting online products to people. While all of these could pocket you some serious dough, the first two may be a little harder to get into.
Buying stuff wholesale and then packaging them individually or in smaller packaging can be done solely on the internet, although many people also use warehouses to stock their stuff. EBay is a great example of this. You can easily buy wholesale on eBay and then resell the same stuff to people who are also looking for it for everyday use. From what I gather the guys in the know consider this as an amazing and legitimate online money making game with serious profits.
If you have a particular skill or expert knowledge you could sell your services to people who want or need it. Let’s say you are an accountant and you know tax laws in and out. You could start a website with a paid newsletter where you discuss and explain all the recent tax law amendments and how they influence businesses. That way you are not limited to only giving your advice, and more importantly your time, to one person at a time. That’s a very professional and legitimate online money making project.
And lastly my favourite! When you market a product online you get a cut form any sale that is referred by you. Listen up: these cuts can be big, up to 70% commission. Does that tickle your fancy? And the best part is that you carry no risk for that sale, AND the start-up costs involved are almost negligible. You basically need knowledge about the product and some means to promote it online. Great ways to promote could be to start a website, it’s very easy, or you could write articles about it, or you could start a niche newsletter. Just some advice on this, maybe buy the product that you’re promoting and use the knowledge from that education to promote and sell it to other people. If that isn’t a great legitimate online money making idea then I don’t know what is.
