How you can make money online in the comfort of your own home.
Make money online
Yes, it’s easier now than ever for you to make money online. Ask yourselves what
would you do if the internet decided to pack up its bags and go to another universe? Me…
I would probably go with it. I say all this to say we spend countless hours on the internet watching videos,
reading romance and sci-fi as well as blogs but what if you weren’t just reading or watching what if
you were actually creating content and making money from it?
Welcome back to another week of Mediocre to Mogul, I hope you’re having a good day. Let’s get into it.
The internet is filled with many LEGITIMATE WAYS TO MAKE MONEY and here are the three that we are all familiar with:
Make Money online by:
Blog, Blogging, Blogger
YES!! Start a blog!
A blog is a medium of continuously sharing your thoughts ideas and experiences to inform and help people.
A blog can be a great source of income for teenagers with minimal bills or no bills at all. The money earned from starting a blog can enable you to build a foundation for college or enable you to start your business.
A blog is not expensive to start up, however, it requires a lot of work and continuous ingenuity and consistency. Not to mention the added skills you will earn from creating your blog and marketing it. Never doubt the impact your thoughts and experiences can have on someone else’s life.
Who are some blog moguls?
Arianna Huffington Was able to sell her blog Huffington post for 315 million dollars
All these blogs are now businesses and brands that are raking in millions of dollars a month. To find out more about these successful blogs and others you can visit Forbes.
From my personal experience, here are the upsides and downsides of owning a blog:
- You can provide valuable content to persons who need it.
- You Can earn money
- Not costly to set up (depending on the platforms you use and your current state of finance).
- You garner design and site building skills.
- There is a lot more to it than it seems.
- Lots of hours watching YouTube videos to learn how to build your sight but hey we generally watch youtube videos pointlessly so why not do it to learn something of value.
How do they make money online?
Bloggers earn money not by literally writing a post but by a host of other mediums such as:
- Affiliate links (advertise other companies’ products on your site)
- Selling their own products
- Providing Freelance services
- Selling e-books or online courses to their subscribers
How can you get started:
There were a lot of videos I watched to know how to get started on making a blog
and here are the ones I thought were really great because they were easy to follow and understand.
Note ..When you are applying for web hosting some sites will want $ 200 USD
(the cost of whatever you have purchased could add up to $200 a little less or even way more)
upfront but if you’re like me you will probably be wondering where am I supposed to get $ 200 from.
Knowing me, I did not stop until I found a cheaper negotiable option….drumroll…Godaddy.
I am hosted by Godaddy and I only paid $12 USD for my hosting plan for an entire year and $1.17 USD dollars for my domain name.
So if you want to know more about how I blog on a 20 dollar budget you can get my newsletter that details my blogging frugality.
What can you blog about?
Hey you, are you sick and tired of overspending, not having anything to show for your hard work? Well, guess what? my newest and most popular blog post thus far is definitely what you need.Here,go check it out.
For a long time, you want to own your own YouTube channel because you feel like
there is something you can offer to people, you are passionate about it but then that limiting side of your brain takes control
YouTube is a great way to make money online. It is a broad medium that supplies
us with immediate entertainment, facts and ideas. 300 hours’ worth of videos are uploaded on
YouTube every minute and you can be a part of that statistics source.
Yes you may be shy, yes you may lack quality lighting and a good quality camera
but who cares? go on any popular and YouTubers page and take a good look at
their very first YouTube video, the lighting wasn’t the best the camera quality was kinda
crappy but through consistency, hard work and determination they built their YouTube empire
and are now able to have any camera they want and the best lighting money can buy,
some even have their own YouTube ROOMS in their houses that they create videos from.
As of this moment, you may only have an old I phone 3, an old laptop and crappy
internet speed but believe me, you have enough to make this work.

So who are some YouTube moguls?

YouTube is a great way to share your skill set, knowledge, humour and talent with a wide audience of people.
YouTube is a platform that can open up many opportunities for you if you go about it correctly.
For example, Lily Singh The owner of the YouTube channel Superwoman was able to be featured in movies such as “Dr Cabbie” and “Bad moms.”
In addition, she was also able to write her first book “How to be a Bawse.”
Therefore, my advice to all you out there is to simply go for it, let this be the
year you do something that has the potential to change your life.
How to get started?
Heres one video explaining how to start a youtube channel
What can you create videos about?
Ebook stands for an Electronic book!! Mindblown!
E-books (Electronic books) are a very profitable way of sharing your creative intellect.
If you are someone who loves to write and creates stories poems, etc. why not create an e-book?
Why not turn your passion into profits?
Its surprisingly simple to start and when you’re a successful writer you don’t have
to stop there you can build an e-book empire and create a business where you
offer a medium where people can design and create their e-book you provide proofreading services
illustrating services, etc. if you are interested in creating and selling your very own e-book
here’s video on how to create an and sell your e-book
If you don’t want to dive into the immediate
selling of your books but would much rather build support and a following then Wattpad would be a great
platform that has the potential to expose you to a wide audience of people
from all around the world. In the event, are ready to sell your books you would have had gained followers
who are willing to purchase it.
Who are some Ebook Moguls:
Amanda Hocking –“My blood approves”
