Opening An Online Store

There are different ways to open an online store. The first is called drop shipping, this is where you set up the store and add items into the shop but you don’t stock them, so you simply market your shop and the items you sell and when someone buys it, the manufacturer will send it directly and you just get the profit. The other way is to sell something you stock, this could be items you have brought in bulk to resell or something you have created. If you are quite crafty and creative you could make things like candles, artwork, jewelry or wax melts and then you can sell them and market your business to make money online. If you create your shop you will need to think about the domain name for your store, online payment solutions, and website design so it is customer friendly and has a good user experience. 

Try Print On Demand

Print-on-demand is a similar method of earning money to dropshipping. This is in the sense that you don't carry the stock. If you are a designer or artist and make different prints and images you want to sell on things like T-shirts, cups, and other items you can use sites like Printify. So you will upload your designs onto the items and then add the items to your online shop, then when someone orders it, the manufacturer will print your design and send it out and you will get the profit. You can also order an item before you stock it so you can check the quality and colors. 

Teaching Others 

A great way to earn money online if you are educated in a particular subject could be through educating others. There are certain companies and websites which will take people on to do tutoring for children and adults in different subjects and because you are in control you can set up the appointments to fit around your schedule. You can also do it on a freelance basis and a good way to get more business is from word of mouth and recommendations. 

Try Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing is one way that influencers earn a portion of their income. Affiliate marketing is simply sharing items from brands you sign up to and then when your followers click on the link or buy the item you will get a payment for it. There are a lot of brands that do this like Amazon and Stylink. If you build a following on social media you are more likely to get click-throughs so it will help you earn more money.

Become An Influencer

Although this one isn’t as straightforward it is still a way to earn money online. Influencers have become a marketing phenomenon and a lot of young people are aspiring to be influencers when they grow up. Influencers make money in a lot of different ways which can build up to a nice income. On platforms like Tik Tok, there is the Tik Tok creator fund where you can earn money from them directly, the same with YouTube and the ads they put in the videos, when you meet the requirements you can earn money from it. One of the other ways is through affiliate marketing which is mentioned above and also from brand partnerships. As influencers tend to have a big audience, certain brands will reach out to influencers wanting to work with them on certain campaigns, this normally involves the influencers trying out their product, getting a free service or visiting a restaurant for a complimentary meal. 

They also can then get paid on top of this, the fee will cover creating content, marketing, and promoting the brand to their audience. It can help brands reach an audience they may not have reached otherwise. It can take time to sometimes grow your social media accounts and become an influencer but if it is something you enjoy doing then your hard work and perseverance can pay off in the end. Some influencers earn enough to live comfortably and other influencers have found celebrity status and millions from starting as Youtuber or influencers.
