There are many ways to get money from the internet for those who want to earn a side income or want to change jobs. It's just that, you have to be careful. Like work in general, how to increase income from the internet is also tricky. Expand the info about fraud and other illegal activities.

In this article, we will discuss more than 30 easy ways to get money from the internet. Generally there are two categories, namely how to make money from the internet through a blog or website and how to make money from the internet without having to create a website (through social media, special platforms, participating in contests, and many more.)

How to Get Money from the Internet Without a Website

If you want to earn long-term income, having a website is a must. However, websites are not always the only way to get money from the internet.

1. Korektor atau Proofreader

If the website tester checks the quality of the website, the corrector or proofreader checks the quality of a text. A proofreader has an obligation to ensure that the text is free from typos, grammar, use of punctuation, spaces, and formatting. If you are very thorough and understand the standard of correct and correct language and writing, being a corrector is the right job.

This profession is generally offered by book publishers. You can send your application through the official website or visit the office in person. However, if you want to work from home, you can check out the many Freelancer's sites. These two sites will connect you with clients who need proofreader services.

2. Film Subtitle Translator

Movie lovers are now increasingly diverse. The language choices presented are not only English or Mandarin. Those of you who master Korean, Japanese, or even German, can try their luck to become a freelance translator for film subtitles (subtitlers). In addition to sharpening language skills, working as a subtitler also trains sensitivity and creativity.

The choice of words and sentences must be in accordance with the context, storyline, and simple and easy for the audience to digest. Even a subtitler must understand the term humor when working on a translation for a comedy film. This is to maintain the element of humor conveyed in the film. If translated literally or the use of the word is not correct, the message of a film will fail to be conveyed.

In addition to mastering foreign languages, the requirements to become a subtitler are like watching movies, following the development of the film world, not getting bored quickly when sitting for hours because you have to listen to the storyline, have a lot of vocabulary (can read books), and most importantly, can work fast under pressure.

So, if you are interested in this field, you can try applying through sites such as Jobstreet, SribuLancer, or Upwork. Join the local community to get tips and tricks about translation. Not infrequently, you can even get freelancer jobs in the community.

3. Join a company that offers remote work

If you currently want a new career, or don't want to be trapped in a situation that is just like that, finding a job with a remote system can be quite a tantalizing consideration.

Currently, there are many software developed by well-known companies, such as Google Play or the Apple Store. However, the developers behind the software are ordinary people like you. There is nothing wrong, right, to start learning programming from now on?

Some tips if you are interested in developing and selling software yourself:

  • Develop the MVP version.

  • Ask for criticism and suggestions from users and beta testers of the application.

  • Create and develop applications based on the criticism and suggestions that have been collected previously.

19. Become a YouTuber

If Google covers all types of searches from text to videos, YouTube focuses its media on displaying various entertainment or informative videos.

Then, how do you get money from the internet through YouTube? There are two ways, namely using the advertising system provided and directing subscribers to visit your website or social media.

If you feel comfortable in front of the camera and want to try making videos, there's nothing wrong with having your own YouTube channel. First of all, decide on a channel theme: what would you like to tell or convey to subscribers? There are generally two types of channels that will attract attention:

  • Entertainment videos. For example, web series, comedy, pranks, reviews, 'walkthrough' videos for games, and much more.

  • Educational videos. This content is like a visualized 'how-to' article. If you have the ability (skills) or want any kind of information, this type of video can be the right choice.

If you already know what kind of theme you want to display on your YouTube channel, the next step is to create a unique name. This name will be used as the name for your channel.

Some tips for being a successful YouTuber:

  • Record with a high quality camera.

  • Try out several different styles, formats, and video editing techniques until you find one that fits.

  • Optimize video titles, descriptions and images to get more clicks.

  • Set a video publishing schedule so subscribers know when they can watch videos on your channel.

There are many ways to make money without leaving the house, and one of them is selling handicraft products on Etsy. Especially if you produce these items yourself. Besides earning income from the internet, you can also use this opportunity to hone your skills.

Etsy is one of the largest selling platforms for a wide variety of handicrafts, from iPhone cases to simple shelves to rings and much more.

You don't need to have a website first or even create a profile like social media. Etsy already has a lot of members which you can of course take advantage of. Also, if you already have regular customers, you can start creating an online store website that sells your own products.

Tips for successful selling on Etsy:

  • Do your research first to make sure that your product will be of interest to people on Etsy.

  • Calculate the time it takes to make a product. Is the selling price equal to production time and material costs?

  • List the advantages and disadvantages of your product. In order to sell well in the market, your product must have its own uniqueness but also not put aside buyers' tastes.

22. Investing in Cryptocurrency

Bitcoin was trending a few years ago, and there are still many enthusiasts today. If you have never invested in Bitcoin and / or other cryptocurrencies, now is the time.

There have been many people who have proven successful in making profits of up to thousands of dollars per year just from buying and selling domains.

24. Buying and Selling Websites

Buying and selling websites is the same as buying and selling a house. Houses that have a high investment value are bought, then repaired, then sold at high prices in order to get the maximum profit.

Even though buying and selling websites looks easy, you can't close your eyes to the level of risk. Don't buy a website that you already know doesn't mean anything.

The following are tips for buying and selling websites:

  • Look for websites that you think have selling value and can still be developed. For a list of websites that can be purchased, please check the marketplaces, such as EmpireFlippers, Flippa, and We Sell Your Site.

The level of competition is high. Therefore, branding yourself is only on one skill. Present yourself as someone that employers in that field are looking for.

Refine your profile, create a sample work or portfolio, and start looking for work.

If you want to make your main income from a platform like Upwork, take a little time to visit the Freelance to Win website. This site will help you to become a high paying freelancer.

Some tips for your digital books to sell well in the market:
