2. AFFILIATE MARKETING
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is a kind of online marketing strategy where the owner of the product for sale increases sales by allowing others targeting the same audience -"affiliates"- to earn commission by recommending the product to others.

4. BECOME A SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCER
Have you ever noticed that certain people gain massive engagements to their posts more than others? These are Social media influencers.
They are people that have built a reputation for their knowledge and expertise on a specific topic.
You could become one by consistently posting valuable contents pertaining a topic to your social media platforms. In this way, a good number of people give you listening ears and engage your posts as you have earned their trust. You can then use this medium to market products for companies, share affiliate links and earn money.
5. ONLINE SURVEYS
An online survey is a structured Questionnaire that a target audience completes over the internet by simply filling out a form. Companies generally use this as a way to make informed analysis about their products and services. Some companies actually pay their audience to partake in their online surveys and you can be a part of it.
6. BLOGGING OR VBLOGGING
A blog is a discussion or informational website that is published on the internet. Blogging is the act of writing on a blog. Vblog is simply the video version of a blog and VBlogging is simply
If there is something you feel you know alot about that most people dont know, an area of expertise,
Say food, fahion, travel, etc. You could share all you know on these topics on a blog or vblogg, on a regular basis, to a target audience. With time you build a good reputation amongst your audience whom having known your blog to provide good contents would be compelled to buy goods and services advertised there or click on your affliate links which will in turn make you money.
7. WRITE AND PUBLISH EBOOKS
Electronic Book, called ebook for short, is a book publication in digital form which can be read on electronic devices such as computers and smart phones. You can make money by publishing and promoting your own ebook you can do this even on popular platforms like Amazon.
There is an online competition for almost if not every topic of life. So if you're really good in a particular topic say writing, catering, sports, movies, etc you can Google which online competition is there for you. sometimes, you won't necessarily have to win to earn a prize.
There are a ridiculous number of ways to make money online and the ones I’ve covered here are just the tip of the iceberg. If you have time, a passion for almost anything, and at least some creative skill, you may be able to build an online income stream — or several — if you give it enough time.
But, don’t just take my word for it. If you look online, you’ll find thousands of success stories you can use for inspiration.
One day you could even create a success story of your own. But you’ll never know unless you try.
