This is not as easy as some other online income as it requires patience and time to be able to see results.

This is popularly called Multi-Level Marketing (MLM). It is the type of online business that is similar to affiliate marketing but a little bit different and more rewarding. You can earn money through the commission you get from selling products as well as recruiting new members to join the marketing trend. This allows you to also make money from the sales made by your downliners.

Look for a product that your friends can pick interest in and spread the news.

Ensure you don’t price your book too high. You can earn up to 70% commission for every purchase of your eBook on Amazon Kindle store.

Hire the service of an expert to get you a nice cover design for your book if you cannot do that, and encourage users to leave sincere reviews when they make purchases.

Also ensure that you thoroughly proofread your book and get another pair of eyes to look through it. Books with grammatical errors are always faced with negative reviews which affects the sales volume and profit margin.

8. Blogging

Another goldmine in the world of online income is owning a blog and populating it with unique and quality content that will keep readers glued and coming back for more. There are different ways of making money through blogging; you can embed Google Adsense code on your website, sell your affiliate products through your blog, sell sponsored posts, charge to have reviews published on your blog about a product or service in your niche, or use other advertising platforms that operate like Google Adsense such as Ad Maven, Infolinks, RevenueHits, Chitika, Adversal, Clicksor, Interllinks, PopAds,PopMyAds, PropellerAds Media, etc.

9. Create YouTube Video Tutorials.

This is another means of earning income online in the long-run. It is as simple as creating engaging video contents in a specific niche, about things that will add value to people and posting them on YouTube. Create a YouTube channel and post your videos there. You can have Google Adsense on your videos, which means that each time people click on displayed ads when they are watching your videos, you get paid.

Note that this requires some kind of patience and investment to be able to see results. You will have to do some kind of promotion to let people see and view your videos.

10. Establish Your Own Online School

You can make money online by being a virtual tutor. Engage people on one-on-one teaching sessions with topics you are an expert in. It could be an educational course, a language, a career course/counselling, or maybe a game.
