Legitimately Making Money Online – You Learn, You Earn

Have you ever had a few hours to yourself over a weekend, bored out of your mind and don’t have anything to do; then all of a sudden, you have a random thought of becoming really successful and rich in a short period of time? Truth be told, we probably all have thoughts similar to that at least once a day. WHY? Because we all have a dream and goal of one day being so successful that we can support ourselves in every way possible, as money is in fact what makes the world go round and makes dreams come true!

When we in our thinking process of making our “fast money”, what ideas pop up? Posting images of pre-owned games that you want to sell for almost full price to make a profit, entering a competition and hope you win the first prize, invest a small amount of money in cryptocurrency companies such as Bitcoin and expect huge profits (but not fully understanding how it works) or just click on sites similar to the one you reading now (thanks by the way!) and hoping there is a magical button that will make all your aspiring dreams come true.

Theoretically, this is all possible, however, it is more of a gamble than anything else and you not learning the fundamentals of the phrase, “Learning is Earning”. So without going on and on about “”what-if” situations, lets talk about the process to legitimately make money online and become rich and successful.

Be Realistic and Stay Focused!

Most people are incorrectly brainwashed into believing that they can become an overnight success by putting in the least effort in something. For example, there is a website that says you can create an app within minutes and you will be able to earn big bucks, but in reality, you need to either be a really good mobile developer or hire a great developer to assist you with creating an app that serves a particular function. Once the app is developed, it can be uploaded to the app store. Then you need to start promoting and advertising the app so that people are made aware of it and can start investing in your product. Once the app has been recognized by many people, you will then be able to generate a good amount of money.

By now, you should realize that Rome was definitely not built in a day, and everything takes time and effort; there is a process  and skill involved in almost anything, and when you understand and accept that fact, you will start earning REAL good money because you are not being influenced by shortcuts.

What You Want

After passing the test of NOT being brainwashed, you are ready for the next BIG STEP of making money online, which is to choose how you will be earning it. Confused? Not to worry; Let me explain.

For you to make the money you have been dreaming of, you need to pick a category where you would be earning the money you would be making, and the more money you make will be based on how your skill and the time invested in whatever you working on. Keep in mind that there are categories more profitable than others (Transcription is a lot more profitable than Online Surveys) but it doesn’t change the fact that any amount you intend on making takes time to earn.

Next, I will list the categories with a brief description of what the category represents, popular examples of jobs of each category, whether they are worth you time or not, and whatnot. Remember that when you choose a category, it is not set in stone; you have loads of time to chop and change until you find exactly what suits you.

Choose a Category of Your Choice

There are literally no limit to how many different avenues you can take with regards to choosing something that will bring a constant income in for you. But that in itself is a problem, since you will not know which opportunity is best for you, and it will eventually go back to “Who you are”. So if you a outgoing and very sociable individual, you won’t want to sit and stare at a computer for a long period of time, and the same goes if you are an introvert and you must stare into a camera and create video content!

So choosing the appropriate opportunity based on who you are is CRITICAL, or you’ll just be doing it because you have to and it would be something you force yourself to do. So, by that being said, I’ll list a few categories with short descriptions that could be of interest to you, how MUCH MONEY you can potentially make and who the job is for, and later, I’ll discuss how you go about perfecting the craft of your category. Lets have a look at them, shall we:

Become an Online Blogger – a person who writes content about whatever they are interested in and uploads it to a website (one created for them or one they create themselves) for other people to view and share

-> Who is this for? For people who have a creative imagination and loves to write about what they are passionate about,      and those who also loves inspiring others. Don’t let this discourage you in not attempting to become a blogger, as the reality is that everyone are capable of blogging.

 

Do Online Surveys – surveys which are created and compiled by various company’s to get opinions for certain products they want to release or just general questions for statistical purposes.

Reviewing Music – well, this one is pretty self explanatory; you simply have to listen to music and based on what you’ve listened to, you can write a review about it.

-> How much money can I make? You can make between $100 to $350 PER MONTH!

-> Who is this for? As you can see above, you can not make a comfortable living just by doing online surveys, but its great for some pocket money on the side for sure. This is more for those who have A LOT of patience and enjoy answering a few questions for some cash in exchange.

Transcription – this is a form of typing by listening to live or recorded audio files and convert it into text format based on what they heard.

Proofreader – process of reading through material with the purpose of identifying any errors or omissions before being published.

-> How much money can I make? You can make between $5000 to $50 000 PER MONTH!

-> Who is this for? This is for those who pay close attention to detail and have a strong passion for reading. Unlike online surveys, being a proofreader can actually bring a huge amount of income your way, obviously based on your level of skill and expertise.

Teach or Tutor – this is where teachers/tutors educate people around the world online based on whatever they are experienced in doing. For example, teaching Chinese people English.

-> Who is this for? This is for the outspoken, extroverts in the world who loves educating people with what they know, which is everything that I’m not! Nevertheless, you can pursue a career in online teaching, as you can make a very good amount of money by doing this.

And the list goes on and on…

Master Your Skill To Make $$$

Now that you have an idea of what you dealing with, I want to briefly discuss how you go about achieving the goal in which ever opportunity you decide to pursue. Firstly, you want to choose the category which most suits what you are; so if you are a nerdy nerd that loves computers and are introverted, you would most likely choose a transcription, surveys or blogging. However, don’t let this article limit you to trying something out of your comfort zone; if that’s what you want to do, go for it.

Then you want to actually research sites that offer the opportunity to showcase what you got. Once you have that down, you MUST actually gain some experience and attempt various surveys if you doing online surveys, listen to audio and video files to transcribe if you going to do transcription work, you catch my drift?

Once you have practiced and gained enough experience in your respective category, the likelihood of being a professional in your category and earning A LOT MORE MONEY sky rockets!

Sad To See You GO 🙁

By now, you have a very very good idea of what is expected of you to succeed in the few respective fields I have mentioned (if you come across new fields of work and have questions, please feel free to ask anytime) you are well on your way to making a name for yourself and adding a few zeros to your bank account! I hope to see you all real soon!
