Do you ever just stare at your weekly paycheck, wishing you had earned some more money for your work? Do you sigh in discontent when you look at the number on your bank statement every month? Do you ever wish there was some way to increase that number without having to work overtime?
Of course you do. Just about every member of the middle-class has.
However, not every member of the middle-class realizes that making money doesn’t necessarily require working eight hours a day five days a week. Anybody, regardless of experience, can make consistent money by just sitting down in front of a computer for thirty minutes.
Here are just a few of the ways you can start earning money from the comfort of your own home:
Creating a blog is easier than it’s ever been. And if your blog gets enough traffic, you can start earning money by allowing ads to be placed on your website. So what should you blog about? Anything you want — family life, business, politics, religion… Just try to keep some sort of consistency to keep your audience engaged.
Alternatively, you could do sponsored blogs, in which case companies pay you to write positive reviews for their products on a blog website.
2. Freelance writing
This could be anything from writing informative articles for students to writing code for an online game. If any sort of writing is your forte, this is an excellent option for you. It differs from blogging in that it provides a broader range of potential for your writing, because you have more common people requesting for your writing skills rather than big corporations.
3. Online games
This is an ideal option for somebody who has some experience in gambling. There is a myriad of websites where you can play virtual cards against real people betting real money, be it five card draw, five card stud, or blackjack. You can also play dice games like craps if cards aren’t “suited” for you. Or, you can just buy quick games that you can play alone. Of course, before choosing this method, it is important you know that gambling is legal in your state or province.
4. Paid surveys
These can be quite boring to do for thirty whole minutes, but if you stay focussed and work hard, the pay can be astounding. Just sign up to a bunch of websites and check your email every day to see if they have surveys for you to do. This helps the website learn more about its target demographic to see how they can advertise products better to its users.
5. Affiliate marketing
Of all the ways you can earn money online, this one has the greatest potential for making big money. The industry makes $12.3 million a year, and is projected to increase to $6.8 BILLION by the year 2020. As an affiliate marketer, you will advertise products for companies such as Amazon, Google AdSense, and ClickBank, and you will be paid commission for every sale that comes about due to your clicks. Amazon will typically start you at about 4% the price of the product, but ClickBank can sometimes do up to 75%.

There are literally hundreds of options when it comes to making money on the internet. The internet is like a goldmine of careers; you don’t need any special skills, a boss, or an office. All you need is computer and half an hour a day. Where will you start your online career?
