You need some money quick or you want to build a long term sustainable online business.
You need the money to pay some bills, get out of debt, pay for a holiday or help you quit your job.
Nowadays it couldn’t be easier compared to say 30 years ago.
There are 2 types online income. The short term swap your time for money type of income and the longer term sustainable type of income.
Both have their benefits and uses.
The first type, short term type of income is the type you tend to swap your time for money. you go online, perform a task and make some money quick.
You perform a task and get paid straight away. They are great for earning money quickly. You might need to make a car payment or pay off a debt or just some extra spending money. You could sell items you already own on sites such as eBay, gumtree or craigslist. You could even turn this into a long term income by regularly going to shift shops, garage sales and book sales, buying items and selling them for a profit.
In this example, as well as being short term cash you could build it into a long term income such as – Raikenprofit, Nic and Andrea Hills. It requires a bit of time to go a and find items but you could easily make a few thousand dollars a week doing this.
Other quick money can be found by performing tasks on Upwork, Transcription sites and a popular site – Fiverr. If you have a particular skill such as graphic design, voice over acting, translation this can easily be parlayed into an income and, like flipping, could be built into a full time income.
Some of these tasks can be built into a more sustainable income with consistent work.
The second type, which I like to call a sustainable income requires a bit more work, a bit more time and effort and often learning a few new skills. But the rewards can be tremendous.
Some common ways to earn this type of money is importing or manufacturing and selling goods on eBay or Amazon, publishing books on Amazon, selling merch on Amazon and print on demand websites, creating a course or membership site around a specific subject, skill or hobby, creating a Shopify store and dropshipping, selling crafts on a site like Etsy or creating a youtube channel. These are just an example of some of the common ways. The list is exhaustive.
This type of business can be used to build a long term sustainable income that could allow you to make bigger purchases, travel or quit your job altogether. The money from the first type of income could be invested to provide the seed capital to build the second type. It is not uncommon for people to flip items they already have on eBay and use that money to invest into building a business for themselves.
Never before has it been easier to earn some form of income on your own terms and form home. A lot of people overcomplicate matters, say it’s impossible or never tried.
Like anything to make a consistent income you need the 3 C’s – commitment, courage and consistency.
Got these and you’ll be a winner. The majority of people give up because they don’t see immediate results and don’t believe it’s possible to make a living online. Most people are weak and want fast results with little to no work.
If you’re serious, don’t be one of these. Commit to your goal and see it through, even if it’s a few hours in the evening or whatever time you can spend at the start. The secret is consistency and long term thinking. Don’t think a month ahead, think a couple of years ahead and work to that goal.
