If you’ve spent any amount of time at all online, searching for ways to earn money …you’ve undoubtedly seen that there are lots of ways on how to make $100 a day online.
And if you have (and if you’ve had the misfortune of trying some of those out) you’ll find that many of these, are plain scams.
Nonetheless, there are also those ways that do work. In fact, I’m going to go out on a limb here, and say that the strategies that work, and those that do not, are about the same in number.
Meaning, that there are a ton of strategies that work, to make $100 a day online.
In this article, I’ll be going over 10 of the most popular and most honest ways to reach and earn that very sought-after “100 dollars per day” mark. Let’s check them out.
1. Publish Your Own Kindle Books.
While not for everybody, (and will most likely not make you $100 per day online, overnight) Kindle publishing is something that has been working very well, for the past couple of years.
Ordinary people who enjoy writing and don’t mind a little marketing thrown in, realize very quickly that it’s possible to make good money by publishing digital books right on Amazon through their Kindle Direct Publishing platform.
The bad part, is that it requires some work up front. From creating your ebook, getting the book published, the cover, choosing correct keywords for the algorithm, and so on.
But, before that scares you away from trying this strategy…you don’t even have to like writing or create the book yourself.
That’s right! You can even outsource the ebook writing, so as to test the waters and get the strategy down, before you go out there and create your own.
John, from FreedomBoundBusiness.com I know from reading his posts, has reviewed a LOT of different products on kindle publishing and has even done some publishing himself in the past. So if you’re interested in learning more about self-publishing, keyword stacking and ebook creations, you can check out his site, he’s got some great stuff.
2. Own A Website (Or Get Familiar With Them).
Okay, this is a bit generic, but there’s simply no way around it: Having your own website, is synonymous with making money online (and in some cases mandatory).
If you want to sell a product online you must have a website. If you want to refer people to products, you must have a website, if you want to do dropshipping or CPA or Affiliate marketing or any one of a multitude of other strategies…you’ll want to at least be familiar with websites.
Along with having a place to refer customers to, having a website helps build your brand’s digital footprint, which is nothing to scoff at (particularly in today’s day and age).
So how to make $100 a day online with a website?
Well, there are a few ways, but one of these is for example by creating a blog and writing articles Just like bazaarofmarketing. You can then make money with SEO, product review and launch-jacking or simply by having ads running on your sites.
You can also capture emails and promote your site content and other products for even more profits. You don’t need to do anything complicated with your content, just keep it simple and add an email captures on every page.
As your business grows and develops, you will be able to make changes and create a flashier site or pay someone to do it for you, but when you’re first starting out the key is simplicity.
Just have a website that gets the job done and starts getting in some visitors. You can worry about frills later.
3. YouTube. Everything And Anything Related.
YouTube is an absolutely awesome way to make $100 per day online basically from wherever you look at it.
If you’re familiar with the amazing video producing ability of your smartphone, then you can start uploading exciting new videos to your YouTube.com account and set them up to earn money for you.
Although it’s true that, at this moment in time, you do need 1k subscribers and 4k hours viewed in the last year…you think that the only way to make money is by creating your own videos? Nope…In fact, you don’t necessarily even need to create videos at all (although I would recommend it).
And you might be too scared or too shy to be on camera. I get it, I am too.
Well…instead of getting on camera, you can create an anonymous channel, you can add affiliate products to your video descriptions, you can reach out to other channels to have them add your own product to their video descriptions, you can buy and flip channels or buy and grow existing ones…there is a LOT that you can do, WITHOUT putting yourself out there and you don’t need 1k subs and 4k hours.
Once again, you’ll probably not make $100 per day online, overnight with Youtube. But there is huge potential, and a lot of people are making a lot of money with it…without having to be famous, very successful or on camera at all.
4. Google Adsense.
Google Adsense, is Google’s advertising platform, which can also help you get to that $100 a day mark, fairly easily if you used a paid strategy (which I’ll get to in a bit).
There are a few ways you can do this.
Number 1 is just by signing up to the ads platform, and getting an ads code that you’ll be able to then copy and place on a website you own, for example. Afterwards, Google takes over and all you need to do is wait for the results. You will then receive money every time someone clicks on any of your ads on your sites (usually a few pennies per click, but it’ll depend).
Now…you won’t earn $100 per day right away with this, and your success depends upon what your website is about and whether or not a lot of people will be interested in it, as well as the amount of visitors you’re actually getting…but it’s a start.
Number 2, however, is a fairly faster method and it involves promoting other people’s products through Google ads, for a cut of the sale.
This is a bit more complex than just slapping an ad up on a website, because you’ll have to get your hands dirty with pay per click, exact and phrase match keywords and negative keywords and you’ll have to optimize ads and manage ad budgets…
If you manage to find a good product that pays out $50 or $100 per sale, and you manage to sneak in some ads into the top of the Google page 1 for some under-served keyphrases and make 1 or 2 sales per day respectively…that’s your goal right there!
5. Create And Sell Your Own Apps.
Creating and selling your own app, might be something that not many people are aware that they can do to make money online (I mean it’s pretty “out there”, right?).
Now, you aren’t required to be a technical genius to create your own mobile apps. And it’s okay if you don’t have the faintest idea how to use computer code either, because you can have an idea for an app instead, and reach out to professionals on sites like Upwork to tackle the coding part for you.
I know of one person in particular, who created one of the top 10 apps in the Appstore (at a certain moment in time) sold it for a bunch of money, and is now teaching people how to buy and sell complete businesses and in the owner of the site acquisitions.com. And it all started from 1 simple app.
Now, at that time the Appstore was all the craze. This was around 2014-2018 if I recall correctly. Nowadays, it’s a LOT easier to create apps. In fact, Amazon’s Alexa app-building (AKA Alexa “skills”) is both very sought-after, and also very easy to get into (there are platforms out there that allow for you to create skills within minutes).
Similar to the other strategies, you most likely won’t get to $100 per day, fast. Plus, you’ll also need to have some money upfront to actually create the app and find the right person or team of people to work for you (as well as doing market research, dealing with bugs, marketing the app and the likes) but if it’s your jam…then I say go for it.
Don’t allow yourself to be intimidated by imagined limitations. You can’t succeed unless you try.
6. eBay and Amazon Retail Arbitrage.
A great way on how to make $100 a day online, is with good old retail arbitrage.
Selling items from your home or buying low and selling high, is something that thousands of people have successfully used both eBay and Amazon, to make some extra money with.
The way this works is (in one of the many configurations) you’ll search through the “sold” listings to find out the types of products that have been selling lately on Amazon.com, for example, and for how much they have been selling.
Then, you can create a listing in eBay of that same product (after comparing prices in the eBay marketplace) and sell it a bit lower than all the competitors, but higher than it’s cost in Amazon. Once a sale comes through, you simply buy the product from Amazon, and send it to the eBay address. You get to keep the difference, minus fees.
Yes, it’s a bit risky, and the buyer might not expect the product to come from Amazon when he or she bought on eBay (or vice versa) and the marketplaces might pick up on the suspiciousness of the multiple addresses your sending to… but then again, a lot of people have been having great success with it.
Alternatively, you can ship products on your own. It’s a bit safer and a lot more fun. For this, just go to any garage sale or check your own house for products you think that you can sell and want to get rid of, and list them on Amazon for a higher price than what you got them for. Save for shipping fees, you get to keep the res.
You can begin as a small-time seller looking to make some extra cash, then work your way up to a big time player who purchases by the lot and resells for a handsome gain. If you enjoy shipping and selling items, this could work out nicely for you and it’s one of the easiest ways to make $100 a day online, from this list, consistently and with ease.
7. Digital Products.
This is another great way to make some good money online: By selling digital products.
Selling and buying online, has really become a mainstay in the last few years, and it’s probably not going anywhere anytime soon. And even more importantly, digital products (as opposed to physical products like those we mentioned in the eBay and Amazon sections) have a lot more upside, because the cost of production and shipping is pretty much none existing.
This means, that making $100 per day online with digital products, can be as easy as just selling 1 product each day.
You can create your own digital products, such as an ebook, digital courses, trainings, cheatsheets and more, and sell them online. All this really involves, is making digital products for your customers to purchase.
I mean think about it, there are a ton of people out there selling their courses and digital products for way more than $100 (some up to several thousands of dollars). Only 1 sale per day of these, are enough for you to hit the $100 per day mark, and you’re making more than $100 per sale, you’ll need one every couple of days.
Alternatively, you can sell someone else’s product, but we’ll talk about that strategy, a bit more in detail in a second.
8. Freelance Writing.
Writing is another great way to make money online. There are so many different intricacies and styles and websites involved, that I have some separate, articles, mentioning some of those in particular.
But basically, freelance writing is where you sign up to one or many of the writer marketplaces out there, you create articles, and you get paid for it.
There is a HUGE market for article writing, since a lot of content creators, need articles written for their sites, and usually can’t do it all by themselves. You might think there isn’t…but I assure you there is. There is SO much demand for written content, that it’s ridiculous.
The best part about article writing, is that if you happen to have even some expertise in a specific niche, you’ll be able to create very high-quality content, without much work at all. Plus, pretty much everybody and anybody can write articles…so there is also no excuse not to at least give it a go!
It’s an excellent way to get exposure for yourself (and in some cases for the website you’re creating content for and even for the website you’re working on) of making your name known, and of really developing a great, highly sought-after and monetizable skill.
You might start slow and maybe make $10 to $20 per 1000 words…but once you get the ball rolling, you can charge upwards of $50 to $250 for them (or even charge by the hour), not to mention the fact that you can branch out into areas like copywriting, which pay a lot more.
9. Providing A Service.
Providing a service is another easy way to start earning money online.
The key here is to have a skill or a service that you can provide, that is both useful and needed (and it must be deliverable online of course). That is the key.
So, because of the nature of the service (you know..with it being online and all) we’re going to be looking at services like for example a podcast editor, website builder, virtual assistant, chat support, funnel builder, email copywriter, video and image editor, translator and transcriber, designer, web and app developer… and countless others.
One of the most trustworthy and common marketplaces used for online services, is the site called Upwork.com. Upwork is basically a marketplace where freelancers and companies (or just people looking for work) meet.
By using Upwork, you can charge either by the hour, or for a finished project. It’s also a bit competitive for freelancers that are just starting out, so make sure to have some of the tests taken on the website to have your profile be a bit more relevant.
Also, don’t be afraid to do some work for free in the beginning to gather some experience and referrals. It’s a great way to get some fast exposure and jump-start your freelancing endeavors.
10. Do Affiliate Marketing.
This is only for those who are very serious about making money online.
We briefly touched on being able to promote someone else’s products, in one of the strategies above, and affiliate marketing, is where you do just that: You promote someone else’s product, for a cut of the revenue (AKA a commission).
There is a really big demand for affiliate marketing. In fact, there is more need for affiliate marketing now, than in the past because of the high growth of online shopping.
Pretty much every brand out there, can use people selling their products for them, and there are literally hundreds (probably hundreds of thousands) of online merchants like Amazon, eBay, Clickbank, etc, where you can signup and promote their products.
Your job as an affiliate marketer, is to help the customer, make a purchasing decision, for which the company you’re an affiliate with, gives you a cut, as we mentioned.
There are a bunch of different ways to do affiliate marketing, from social media like Instagram to content marketing like starting your own blog or with video you can do SEO and affiliate launch-jacking and so many others.
Affiliate marketing is the strategy that I’m personally using to make $200 to $700 per day (and sometimes more) and it’s the one I’ll be working on going forward too. It’s definitely not easy in the beginning, but if done correctly, can passively make you $100 to $200 per day.
Alright everyone, those are ten ways on how to make 100 a day online. I hope that you enjoyed, but more importantly, that you go out there and try the one that you find might work the best for you, even if you’ve never tried it before or are afraid it might not work.
Trust the process and just go with the flow.
There are, of course, a plethora of many more opportunities and different ways to make money online out there that work perfectly fine, however, the strategies in this post are both some of the easiest, fun and most hassle-free (most of them anyway) ways to make some extra cash on the side, or get to that magical $100/day mark online.
