If you’re looking for some extra side-income in 2023 or even looking to start working for yourself on your own time, there are tons of ways you can make money online. Whether you have a service, product, or awesome content you want to see out in the world, there’s something out there for you. For now, here are the top 5 ways you can make money online in 2023.
Sell products or services on an e-commerce platform: One of the most popular ways to make money online is by setting up an online store and selling products or services through an e-commerce platform such as Etsy, eBay, or Amazon. This can be a great way to turn a hobby or passion into a profitable business.
Personally, I started an Etsy store in 2021 using some graphic design skills and dropshipping services through Printful and Printify.
Offer freelance services: If you have a particular skill or expertise, you can offer your services as a freelancer through platforms such as Upwork or Fiverr. This can be a great way to earn money on a flexible schedule and work on projects that interest you.
Some ideas for services you can provide if you have a little knowledge in the area are graphic design, website design, social media management, blogging, or even odd-jobs as a virtual assistant.
I started my own freelance graphic design business — LE Designs LLC — in 2019 after I graduated college and have worked on branding and website design projects for various types of clients.
Create and sell an online course: If you have knowledge or skills that you want to share with others, you can create and sell an online course on platforms like Udemy or Teachable. This can be a great way to monetize your expertise and reach a wider audience.
Start a YouTube channel: If you enjoy creating and sharing videos, you can start a YouTube channel and monetize your content through ads, sponsorships, and merchandise sales. This can be a great way to build a following and earn money through your creative content.
I started a YouTube channel a while ago to talk about passive income and side-hustles and have posted videos sporadically, but the key with YouTube is to be consistent and make helpful content that people will want to watch in order to solve a problem. Just remember, there are some criteria you need to meet before you’re able to make any money on YouTube (1,000 subscribers, and 4,000 watch hours within a year’s time frame). So it does take more upfront work and knowledge to get your channel off the ground.
Monetize a blog or social media account: If you have a popular blog or social media account, you can monetize your content through sponsored posts, affiliate marketing, and advertising. This can be a great way to earn passive income and reach a wide audience.
If you ever see an ad on this blog, don’t worry about it, just know that I did something right LOL.
Remember that starting any side hustle or business is a big task. It can take a lot of time and effort up-front in order to see the results you’re looking for. Just keep up the good work, and go into 2023 ready to reach your goals!
