Hey, If you are here you are looking for legitimate ways to earn money from home.
In this article I´m going to list the online businesses that work for me, give a short description of what it is about, and link to almost each and every resource, so you may have a look if you are interested in starting to make money online.
This is only a short introduction to each business model. You can then read more about it in the corresponding article.
These are not in any order of preference.
Self-Publishing on Amazon KDP
If you haven´t heard about this business model, there is a possibility to self-publish low-content books on Amazon without being a writer.
It does take time to build a portfolio of books, however, if you stick to it, it is one of the most lucrative businesses you can have online.
Check out the article here on how to get started.
Print on Demand
This is perhaps most popular with selling T-shirts. Though there is a wide range of products available to sell.
Print on demand is another online business model where you do not have to worry about ordering stock, storing the products, or even dealing with the customer.
You simply have to create a design, upload it on a platform, and you will get your royalty whenever a sale is made.
The marketplace will take care of the whole process after you make a sale. They will take the order, package the product, ship the item to the customer, and deal with any customer care and returns.
These are some popular print-on-demand marketplaces; Amazon MBA, Redbubble, and Teepublic.
These marketplaces also do the marketing for you.
Check out the article here about Teepublic if you are interested in the Print-on-demand business.
Selling on Etsy
Etsy is the second largest marketplace after Amazon. Most people sell physical products and crafts they create. But, did you know you can also sell digital products on Etsy?
Similar to the print-on-demand mentioned earlier, you can upload a design, clipart, or any other digital product once, and customers can purchase and download the product without you having to do anything.
Etsy has recently increased their fees, however, they are marketing your products to attract more customers to your shop.
If you wish to give Etsy marketplace a go, use this link to set up your Etsy shop and you will get your first 40 listings for free.
Affiliate marketing is when you act as an intermediary between the seller and the buyer. This is all done online.
You can promote both physical and digital products. Digital products pay higher commissions.
The best way is to build a website of your own. This could be based on one of your hobbies or interests. You write about this for your audience and link to the products you recommend. When they click on your link and purchase, you will get a commission.
To start you can either look for the information online. There are many YouTubers who give information for free. Then get your own website, hosting, etc and start building your niche website or make money online (MMO) business.
Alternatively, you can join a company like Wealthy Affiliate (I highly recommend it as I´ve been a member for 3 years already, and they are a legit company).
At Wealthy Affiliate, you can join for free, and build your own free website. Thereafter, if you decide to become a paid member you will have access to free hosting, an awesome research tool, expert help, networking with like-minded and successful marketers, live tutorials, and technical support.

Crypto Bot Trading
A recent passive income model I discovered is trading cryptocurrency using a bot. I´m testing the grid bot trading using AI (artificial intelligence), and I’m earning a few bucks a day, which is good for a start.
I will write an article on this in the future when I keep testing and getting more results.
Meanwhile, if you’d like to check it out, I´m using Pionex. Pionex has 16 different trading bot types and the lowest trading fees in the crypto exchange trading.
Also, check more info about Pionex and bot trading in this tutorial by James of MoneyZG, who is an expert in cryptocurrency.
If you’d like to make some extra pocket money without much effort, I can recommend UserTesting.
I have tested this myself and you can make approx $100-200 per month.
It is easy to sign up, do your first test, and when approved you can start testing sites.
Here’s more information on how to use UserTesting.
There are infinite ways of making money online.
In this article, I give an overview of the legit resources I use to earn income online.
I have tested and still use the abovementioned tools to earn money from home.
Every business model mentioned (except for testing website and bot trading) requires time and dedication to build (give it 6 months or a year) but it will definitely make you money in the long run.
If you have been thinking about starting a business online, I encourage you to start doing so. Take action.
If you have any questions about any of these resources, feel free to leave a message below. I´d be more than happy to help if I can.

Today there are more and more young people looking for work online. I was one of them. I chose the Wealthy Affiliate platform and I don’t think I was wrong. There are a lot of opportunities and ways to earn, you just need good will and time. Persistence is also important.
Hi, thank you for writing. Well said, and I agree with you willpower and persistence are important. Have a nice day.
I think the important thing to know is that every method requires work to earn income. Self Publishing on Amazon KDP and Print on Demand are highly competitive spaces and so is Affiliate Marketing. However despite the work with consistency and providing good quality products and content you can earn in the medium to long term. Have never dived into digital money but will check out your suggested video by James on Pionex, the Crypto Trading Bot
Exactly, you need to work hard and be consistent, especially at the beginning when you are building your business. Yes, do check the bots. I set a couple of bots, and they are on autopilot. Thank you for writing.
Some really good ways to make money in this post. Some simple and some more complex. I think the 2 great ones here are affiliate marketing and selling on Etsy.
Affiliate marketing is so simple but effective and you don’t have to ship any products or even deal with the consumer after they have brought the product.
Selling on Etsy can be very lucrative as if you do it right you can set it up in a way that allows external sources to take care of all the elements that could get a bit difficult at times.
I have never heard of crypto bots and being in crypto myself piqued my interest. I think I’ll be trying this one next.
Hi Michael, thank you for writing and sharing your insights. Self-publishing can also be lucrative, but it does require a lot of research and hard work. I´m finding bots can be fun, and with grid trading, it is less risky.
