We all know the internet has made life easier. From communication to running a business, it’s got us covered. In the grand scheme of things, the internet is still young. It’s no wonder, then, that we don’t yet make the most of all its benefits. One thing you may not realize about the internet is its money making and saving abilities. That’s right; cold hard cash! There are websites for everything. Making and saving yourself money is no different. How I hear you ask? Here’s a list of a few of your options!
BLOGGING AND VLOGGING
We’ll start with the best way to make money online. Blogging and vlogging alike could lead to significant money if you do them right. To get a blog off the ground, you’ll need to get your head around advertising. Once you have a large enough audience, companies will pay you to mention their products on your site. How do you get an audience? There’s no easy fix for that. Hard work and an original idea are the best ways to get the numbers you need. That, and communication. The more you get your name out there, the more likely people are to come to your site. Try getting friendly with individuals who own successful blogs. All it takes is one mention on a blog with a lot of traffic. As soon as you think your numbers are high enough, contact companies. Remember that they’re unlikely to approach you. There are a lot of blogs out there. You’re going to have to get your name out there! Vlogging is a little different. Firstly, you’ll need a way to film yourself! Secondly, you’ll need higher viewer numbers to make money. Depending on what platform you upload onto, you’ll go into an ad scheme. This option saves you having to approach companies. It could mean that it takes a little longer to see a return on your efforts, though. Do a little research into whichever method you choose. Find out how other people make their money, so you can take steps towards achieving the same goal. You might not be able to give your job up straight away, but it’ll be a start!
COUPON AND DEAL SITES
Coupon and deal sites, like DontPayFull.com are a fantastic way to save yourself money. All you need to do is get into the habit of checking them often! There are offers on all sorts, from days out to restaurants. Too often, we forget that sites like this exist. Even so, the amount of money you can save yourself is insane. Many such sites offer apps which you can download onto your phone. That way, you’re more likely to remember! If you eat out often, it’s always worth seeing if you can save a little money. Meals out are expensive, after all. The only thing to bear in mind is that you may have to change your plans and go where the savings are. But, there are worse things in the world than that!
Another excellent way to make money online is selling your stuff. Have you had a clear out and need to get rid of your old bits? Sites like Ebay are a fantastic way to make money on the stuff you no longer want. Setting up an account is easy, so there’s no excuse not to give it a go. Before you list any of your items, do a little research to see how much you should charge. You don’t want to undercharge! The key to making online selling work for you is to keep on top of things. As soon as items sell, get them shipped as quickly as possible. These sites work on feedback ratings. If you receive a bad rating, it could be curtains! If you don’t have anything old to sell, you could always sell the things you make instead. Do you have a crafty skill you’ve been dreaming of making a go of? Can you knit, sew or make jewelry? Sites like etsy.com offer an excellent platform to sell your creative wares!
The last online shopping hack we’re going to look at is comparison sites. These are essential if you want to save money. Never before has it been so easy to compare companies. Even better, there are comparison sites that promise to do the job for you! Make an effort to compare prices online before making your next big purchase. It’ll amaze you how much money you’ll save!
