So, if you want financial independence or just a gig on the side, here’s how to get paid while working online.

Freelance Writing

First on our list is freelance writing. Freelance writing is undeniably one of the best ways to get money online and one of the most competitive and difficult to do. There is an almost infinite number of freelance writers on the internet, all of whom are vying for precious writing jobs. The best way for you to succeed as a freelance writer is actually to master writing itself. Many freelance writers who write in English, whether they are native speakers or not, struggle to form cohesive and clear articles. To get ahead of the rest, we recommend that you learn the language (even if you speak it natively) as well as grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure.

Once you have mastered writing itself, you will be better positioned to apply for freelance writing jobs when they come up and will be more likely to get them. There are many places you can look for freelance writing jobs, from content mills to independent clients. There are many guides online that will tell you where to find the work, so if you are interested, take a look.


Surveys are another quick way to get paid. However, the difference with surveys is that they are unlikely to bring you consistent money and cannot be carried out as a full-time job – but with that said, they can make you a lot of money if you are dedicated and persistent. There are several surveys for you to do online, one of the most popular Univox paid surveys, though there are many more. Surveys are quite simple and straightforward. You need only fill in a survey or questionnaire, submit it, then wait for the money to reach your account.

With digital surveys, you can also make money off referrals alone. If you can refer a number of your friends to a survey website, the website will pay you a percentage of the profits they make from your friends filling out surveys. Digital surveys are a great way to make some quick cash on the side, so why not give it a go? You will find them in abundance by simply typing in surveys on Google and finding them very easily filled out and used.

Buying and Selling

Perhaps the oldest, most traditional, and most common method of making money online is to buy and sell. Several platforms, such as eBay and Amazon, exist solely to enable digital sellers to make a profit and a name for themselves. These websites thrive off of independent sellers, who are their lifeblood. If you have something to sell, drive, and determination, you will likely find great success on these websites. You can also consider a method of selling called dropshipping. A person does not actually possess the product they are selling but rather orders it from a third-party and makes a profit without ever having to touch the product or even ship it.

Like other digital selling methods, Dropshipping is a great way to make a profit online, one of the most profitable, perhaps. You can find out a lot more about dropshipping and how to get started on one of the many extensive guides dedicated to dropping shipping that undoubtedly exists online. Buying and selling online is an easy way to make money, so if you want to make some cash, give it some serious thought.
