As a young entrepreneur, you’re always looking for new ways to make income through side hustles or a consistent business. You have a lot of options to make money online, with more people starting businesses via the Internet.
There are a lot of different ways to make money online but I’ll go over a few that I think have a high earning potential as well as being very passive. These side-hustles will pay well for many years if you are willing to put in some effort.
1. You can invest in cryptocurrency
If you have enough money, this is an excellent option. You can make fast profits with swing trading. That being said, trading is a skill and takes some time to learn and get really good at but can pay off handsomely if you know what you’re doing.
Don’t put all of your savings into it as some people did a few years ago as you never know what the market is going to do.
Even if you don’t know how to day trade long-term investing in crypto is still a solid strategy that can pay off down the road. Any strategy can help you make lots of money over time.
2. Start a blog
A blog is a great way to generate passive income. It continues to earn money long after you have it built. When you own a blog you can talk about whatever topic you want, whether it’s fitness and strength or home brewing coffee. You can share your knowledge and link to affiliate products. This will help you make some money helping others do the things they love.
“If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.” – Warren Buffett
3. Affiliate Marketing
Relating to the blog, affiliate advertising is when you advertise a company or someone else’s product and get a commission for it. This is a great way to start making some money if you don’t have your own product or service that you can offer.
You can use this method on your blog or email list if you use one and send offers for an affiliate product that adds value to your viewers/customers’ lives.
A list of affiliate products can be created and emailed to customers. This is great for customer retention.
4. Dropshipping products
This is a method that became popular in recent years, that requires you to have a little money saved up to start with, the potential for success is very high if you’re willing to put in the work.
A domain website and inventory can be purchased if you have the money. Then you can start selling Shopify-hosted products. You can make a lot of money selling products through Shopify. This is a popular method for high school students.
You can research trends and make a niche store that sells specific products and items that are entertaining or useful like coffee mugs or coffee-related items if you’re into coffee. You can purchase bulk quantities of inventory at a discount and then sell these items for profit. If you have good marketing skills, this is a simple task.
5. Coaching one-on-one
This is an excellent way to make a living if your skills are in the area of health and wellness.
Whatever it is you can host this option to contact you on your own website or make a profile on a website like Fiverr or Upwork and charge a fee for helping your customers get the result they’re looking for.
This one has its drawbacks like it’s not as passive as some of the other methods on this list and has you rearranging your schedule to accommodate someone else’s. If you already have one to two side gigs, this can provide a way for you to make extra income.
