Online surveys

Another interesting way people make money on the digital space is by completing surveys online. Often times, companies and agencies recruit members from all over the world to help them complete surveys, answer questions, and test products. All it’s going to take is a few minutes out of your spare time.

Online trading

This is, by far, one of the most lucrative things you can do online. All you need to do is invest your funds in the stock or forex market and gradually follow the trends to know when to trade and when not to. Although it is not really an easy way to make money, it is still a great way to multiply whatever small capital you have.

Start your own website

Before you start fretting, just know this: You don’t need to be a programmer to own a website these days. Starting a website with some major web development plugs only takes about 20 minutes, costs hardly anything, and can be done by a twelve-year-old. It only takes a bit of marketing, publicity stunts, and plugging on social media to draw traffic to the site, and there are different ways to monetize your site, some of which include affiliate marketing, blogging, guest posting, Google Adsense, and lots more.

Affiliate marketing

If you have a solid social media base, then you can start earning some cool cash by promoting companies, agencies, brands, and products. Having a blog or website is an added bonus. With affiliate marketing, you get to market a brand or one of their products, and they pay you a commission for any sales generated through your affiliate link. It is that easy!


Freelancing is another eye-catching option you want to look into if you’re looking to make some cool cash in this age. Maybe you’re good at writing, designing, programming, singing, voicing, or even creating stores, you can start generating your revenue by signing up with some of the leading freelancing sites out there, like Upwork, Fiverr, Freelancer, and lots more.

Taking part in contests

Competitions and contests, of course, offer no guarantee, but you can still make your money off them if you’re doing it right. More often than not, individuals, sites, and even companies sometimes organize contests on social media for their members or followers to participate in. If you’re so good at what you do, you can take part in some of these contests and earn your rewards.


This is another exciting opportunity that the digital landscape offers everyone. All you have to do is purchase a certain crypto, say Etherum or Bitcoin, when its price is down, and hold on to it until its price rises again. Once you discover a price jump, you can then sell the coin for profit. This technique is called “Holding,” and it has helped thousands of people achieve their life-long financial dreams.

Buy and sell domain names

A domain name is just a website’s address, say, “,” and there are lots of extensions, such as .Com, .net, .org, and so on. To make money off domain names, all you need to do is find some available domain names online that have a great market value, and buy them. After a while, you’ll then list them for sale on any relevant platform, say Godaddy.
