In 2021 it’s fairly easy to make money online but we’ve found the 9 best ones. Some of them might surprise you!
1. Working from home: simple assignments sent to your home
Imagine being able to make money from the comfort of your own living room. Thanks to the internet, a lot is possible nowadays. Years ago, there was already the so-called “work at home”. People who signed up for this were sent boxes or stickers and had to perform simple actions at home and send them back. The time you spend doing this is quite a lot and sending it back and forth does not work very well. The earnings are also dramatically poor. No, working from home is not recommended. You would be much better off applying for a job as a cashier at the nearest supermarket. Seems to be the least stressful job and you earn more than the minimum per hour. You also have to deal with nice colleagues.
2. Will you be the new star? Earn your money with Youtube!
Don’t be under any illusions. Some vloggers are indeed well-known and certainly earn a lot of money. Don’t be mistaken that there are also a lot of vloggers who earn little or nothing at all. The earning potential with Youtube is very high. The sky is the limit. The more viewers (views) the higher your income. Per 1000 views you earn between 1 and 3 euro. So yes, you have to have something to tell if you want to get a big bank account through Youtube. Or well, often you don’t even have to have something to say or be able to do, but you ‘simply’ have to know how to entertain your viewers. Sounds easier than it is. But if you become successful, it guarantees a lot of money. And collaborations with top brands in your ‘area’. Influencers are becoming more and more important and when you have a large reach, brands are willing to give you free stuff and a big compensation when you recommend their stuff.
3. Do you like to write? Get rich with blogging
Blogging is another wonderful thing. In the past, you had to have a newspaper, a magazine or a magazine to be able to write something that many people read. With the advent of the internet, this is all a thing of the past. Anyone with 30 Dollar can buy a domain and hosting package and write whatever comes into your head. Also with blogging, the earning potential is ridiculously high. But again, a reality check: there are more bloggers who earn nothing than who become very rich with it. Again, the rule is: if you are interesting, know how to write well or are an authority in a certain area, you will undoubtedly have many readers or will get them in the future. You can make money by selling your own products or by promoting someone else’s. You can also write advertorials. You can also sell advertorials (paid articles) and other advertising space to companies. How much companies are willing to pay for this depends on how many visitors and page views you have per day, month and year.
4. Many followers on Instagram? Recommend products
Instagram is very popular. Young people, in particular, have abandoned Facebook en masse and have all taken to ‘instababy’. Where there are many people, there is always a lot of money to be made. All famous stars from the Netherlands and abroad have their own account. There they show where they are, what they are doing and with whom. Many gadgets, clothes and other items are shown in photos and videos. Sometimes these are sponsored by a company. That is how the Instagrammer makes his living. So first, collect a lot of followers and then you will automatically be approached by companies to recommend their message, product or service. Do you hear the cash register ringing?
5. Give your opinion by completing surveys
Receiving money by giving your opinion. That sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, it is not. Companies like to know what their customers and potential customers think of their company, brand and/or product(s). With this information, they can improve their company and products in a very targeted way, which in turn brings them extra money. The disadvantage of this method is that you have to fill in a lot of surveys before you have earned a nice amount of money. But you know what they say: “Patience is a virtue”.
6. Turn your car into a driving commercial
No joke. If you have a car, you can have it stickered and collect money. They call this ‘advertising driving’. How does it work exactly? Simple, you sign up with your car. When you sign up, you tell them what kind of car you have and where you drive to every day. The more you drive to busy areas (like the Randstad) the more interesting you are for the advertiser. Next, you will be placed in a file. The moment an advertiser is interested in your daily route and car, you will receive a response. The amounts that you can receive per month are between 50 and 200 Euros. Contracts are signed for a minimum of one year.
7. Can you look into the future? Start investing!
Buying shares only starts with a deposit of €10,000. Investing with less money is not worthwhile. You would have to earn a lot of money to cover your transaction costs. But there is a solution. Other financial products such as CFDs (Contract for Difference) offer investors with smaller wallets a chance to make money. With a broker like Plus500, you can enter into a contract where you predict in advance whether a stock will rise or fall in value. If you guessed correctly, you’ll make money, and if you guessed incorrectly, you could lose your deposit. Thanks to the so-called leverage, you can win a lot of money even with small increases or decreases. But beware, the higher the leverage, the faster you can lose your money.
8. Sports betting.
For people that like to gamble and know a thing or two about sports a great way to earn some cash are sports bets. It’s easy nowadays to find the best websites for betting. A lot of them offer nice bonuses when signing up and there are a bunch of websites where tips are posted everyday.
9. Got guts? Place a bet in an online casino
The fastest way to win money is to gamble in an online casino. In games such as blackjack, punto banco or roulette you have just under 50% chance of winning. With a bit of luck, you can therefore easily double or even triple your money. Of course, you should never gamble with money you cannot afford to lose. There are no guarantees, yes you will die one day, but that’s not what we are talking about ;).
