Some scams might involve asking you to pay for a “training” book or CD that explains how to make money in a certain business. Others charge for supposedly “exclusive” products that you’re supposed to sell at a premium. Avoid both of these scenarios. Remember, you should never have to pay to get a job. And if someone asks you to, you can be sure that it’s a scam.
You’d do most of your work in a home garden, but you’ll have to spend your weekends away from home. If you love the idea of selling your home-grown produce, but can’t swing being out of the house on weekends, consider selling to friends, family, and neighbors instead. Almost everyone prefers the taste of a fresh picked tomato to a store bought one.

Another way of how to make money online is to sell links on sites that you own. Many bloggers and website owners earn money taking this route. Basically, companies want lots of links to their sites as this tells Google that their site is a quality site and then they rank higher in Google searches. People try to game this system by buying links on other sites. Usually it is very quick and easy to add a link to your sites for someone. However, you do run the risk in that if Google finds out, your own sites can be penalised in Google search rankings.
It is possible to make a living out of buying and selling domain names. There are a couple of ways to go about this. You can buy domain names which are currently available that you imagine people will pay big bucks for in future. For example, a domain name with great words in it or a company that is only in Australia at the moment but you imagine they will go global and want the “.com” version of their name or the “.co.uk” etc.

If you are a native English speaker with reasonably good writing skills, one of the easiest ways to earn money straight away is by signing up for sites such as UpWork. Create a good profile with samples of your work and start applying for jobs. Initially, you may need to start with jobs that are quite poorly paid to build up a good rating, but then you should be able to earn reasonable money for your time.
