Let’s face it. We all want to make money, a lot of money, as a matter of fact. However, making money isn’t as simple as it sounds. It takes creative ideas and hard work to make money.
Thanks to the internet, making money online from your home has been made easy. If you are under 30, with excellent knowledge of how the internet works, you are at an advantage because all you need to make money is a couple of creative ideas, a few devices, and commitment.
In this blog post, we’ll be sharing with you 10 ways you can make money if you are under 30.
- Become a virtual assistant
A virtual assistant earns as much as $16 per hour. The good thing about being a virtual assistant is that your schedule is quite flexible and you don’t have to jump from one place to another to get your work done, as long as you have a laptop, stable internet, a cell phone, and effective communication.
- Launch an online resource
Have you considered sharing your expertise via ebook to help people earn passive income? It could even be as simple as sharing the hobbies you like. If writing isn’t your strong point, you can consider doing a video and charging people a few dollars to download it.
Here’s an important tip here: Be sure that whatever you decide to share is helpful to people. That’s the only way that they will buy whatever you offer.
- Invest in real estate
Real estate can be a lucrative way to invest and earn passive income. You can buy cheap properties as a vacation getaway and hire property management groups to handle renters for you when you are away.
Commercial real estate, as well as real estate crowdfunding, is another lucrative way to make money. Real estate crowdfunding involves many investors investing small amounts of money into real estate ventures.
- Rent your belongings
If you have a big space in your home which isn’t particularly in use, why not rent it out and make some money off it rather than leave it there to waste?
You’ve probably heard of Airbnb, a listing site that allows you to put up a room in your apartment up for rent. You can even put up the whole apartment for rent if it is not in use.
- Become a freelance writer
It’s actually easier to become a freelance writer than you imagined. For instance, all of our writers at Success Secret TV are freelance writers.
The trick is to make sure you write about something you love, something that you enjoy doing. That way, you’ll do a good job and companies will want to hire you.
- Start a blog
Blogging is similar to freelance writing, only that this time around you’re writing for your own website, not someone else’s. And unlike freelance writing, blogging requires a little more dedication because you have to grow your niche audience as well as develop strategies to improve your blog’s visibility.
However, once you are able to achieve this, you can begin to make money easily from blogging.
- Create an online course
If you have a particular area that you are exceptionally knowledgeable in, why not consider creating an online course to teach people how to become professionals in that field and make a couple of money doing it?
Start by preparing a course outline. You can show it to a few of your folks for their honest feedback. Once you are done with that, go ahead to make the video and probably include a worksheet. There you go!
- Sell pictures that you’ve taken
If you love taking pictures or if you are a photographer, you can sell some of the pictures you’ve taken to stock photo companies such as 123rf, 500px, Alamy, Crestock, and the likes.
Perhaps you do not own a camera and all the pictures you have were taken with a smartphone. Well, say thank you to Clashot, EyeEm, Foap, Scoopshot, and the likes because you can sell your pictures to them.
- Become a graphic designer
With the emergence of the internet and a lot of online services, digital marketers have created for themselves a space in the advertisement industry. Guess what, most of these online advertisers need graphic designers to create the perfect content and that’s where you come in as a graphic designer.
All it takes to make money as a graphic designer is to find direct clients that you can work with and there you go. Graphic designers are in demand these days, as there is always a need to create content.
- Host an event
What comes to mind when you hear host an event? Let me guess, conferences, seminars, and the likes? How about something different like a meet and greet? Oh! That’s right. A meet and greet.
Secure a loyal following and get a reputable guest speaker to speak at the event. Then you can charge a token for the event. You can make the event a monthly or quarterly or annual event depending on the content you are delivering.
In conclusion, even as a teenager, if you’re smart, ready to learn, and sacrifice a few months or years, you can create your desired financial life by taking advantage of the opportunities right there on the internet. Just start somewhere, keep on learning and growing.
