In the 21st century, people are seeing more opportunities to make money from the internet as more people are going online. In this report, I have listed 6 ways to do so which are really profitable.

These are well known methods that work everywhere as long as you have access to the internet and anyone can do it.

5 ways to make money online

1. Selling online
This is by far the more realistic and effective way to make money online as all you need to do is to sell something online. People visit the web daily seeking to satisfy their needs. If you can create a product or offer service to them online, have a means of getting paid, you are already in business.
Selling online requires that you have something to offer, make the offer and be able to get paid online. In countries like Nigeria, there are several online shops that are springing up that sell stuff online. Some sell their own stuff while others sell other people's stuff. You just need to know what people want, be able to offer them and then get paid for doing so.
Things people sell online include digital and tangible goods and services. One can sell physical or virtual books, mp3 songs and so on. An online seller can also sell hardware, clothes, cars and even homes on the internet.

2. Affiliate Marketing
This simply involves a second kind of strategy that involves promoting the sales of other people's stuff for a pre-agreed commission. Affiliate marketers are people who have no product but offer the service of selling the products or services of other merchants for a fee. One of the most popular affiliate programs is the Amazon associate's program as it allows people who can capture web traffic to earn income by promoting sales for them. Affiliate marketers make use of several channels within their reach to promote affiliate sales which are normally based on a percentage of sales price for eg. 10%. Products and services one can promote as an affiliate marketer includes phones, laptops, web hosting, domain names, mp3 downloads and so on.

A lot of online sellers are now using the services of affiliate marketers by offering an affiliate program to them to help make more sales. So it's really all about sales and getting rewarded for promoting them.

3. Freelancing
A freelancer is someone who offers a service online(mostly computer related) for a fee without having to be geographically close to the client. A freelancer is someone who operates what we may call a virtual office and he does this remotely from any part of the world where there is internet service and gets paid for it using online payment services.

There is a growing number of online services which freelancers offer and these includes typing, article writing, search engine optimization, web design, consulting, graphic design and so on. They do it for a pre-agreed fee and on a contract basis and they may or may not be a 3rd party involved in the contract award process.

A freelancer doesn't have to physically meet with his client to offer or deliver his services but he is able to do this easily using the internet. Freelancing services are mostly related to services that can be delivered online.

Most freelancers tend to have their own official websites through which they can offer such services and may also make use of freelancing communities where clients and service providers normally meet to compete for jobs.

4. Internet publishing
This method has to do with pushing/putting content to the web for the purpose of capturing public interest which becomes a potential for making money.
An internet publisher is someone who makes content publicly available on the web via websites and this can be in the form of texts, pictures, videos and audio.

One main focus of a publisher it to get as much publicity as he can get for his content. He can then be able to monetize his web content in a variety of ways such as selling adverts, making referrals,

One of the most popular methods through which internet publishers make money online is by making use of Pay per click programs like Google adsense, AdDynamo, Chitika and so on. This allows them to earn money based on clicks made on such ads by web visitors and the more visitors a publisher's site has, the more money he is likely to make from pay per click ads.

More and more publishers are also switching to selling ad spaces directly for a flat fee based on a time period. Publishers can sell ads based on monthly or yearly basis.

5. Online forex trading
What is online forex trading really about? Well, it has to do with simply buying and selling foreign currencies for profit.

With the internet, the ease with which trading can be done is improving and online trading is at its best so far. What is basically requires if for someone to have funds, use it to buy a currency based on speculation, hold it for profit and then sell it when he wants to cash in.

More and more people are going into online forex trading due to the fact that it can make one rich but it's also risky as market prices are not perfectly predictable.

Most freelance forex traders tend to trade successfully by following the direction of the market so it

Online Forex trading requires having a strategy, following a set of rules and sticking to it. One can decide to aim for $10 to $100 a day depending on his capital and then use a method to achieving it based on predictions from past trends. Some traders trade the news, some trade trends, some scalp and some just use price action.

If you want to start making money online by trading currencies, then you'd need be properly trained for it first before investing huge capital into it. It can be highly risky and can also be highly rewarding as well.

I believe these are the basic ways people use in making money online from almost anywhere, as long as they have access to the internet.
