3 Ways to Use Your Computer to Earn Extra Income

Times are still tough; and people are always looking for new and creative ways to make extra income. The good news is that computers and the Internet have made the world such a small place that practically anyone can earn online and from different ways. Here are three of the most popular ways to earn online:

1 Become a Freelancer

If you’re a professional who has a few hours to spare each day, there’s no need to get a second job; you can just work as a freelancer online. Nowadays there are plenty of websites that pool together skilled and professional workers for hiring. You can work a full 40-hour a week job by spreading out your hours during the week; work part time; or work per project. This is ideal for retirees, working Moms, stay-at-home Dads, students, or basically anyone who is able to work in front of a computer for a few hours. Because of the huge network these job sites have, people don’t need to go around marketing their skills just to land a project.

2 Sell on Facebook

If you have a product to sell, you can can create a facebook page and use your innate marketing abilities to promote your items. There are ton of people who have made so much money by posting their artworks, crafts, baked goods, clothes, shoes and many more items on Facebook or InstraGram. People respond well to these posts because they no longer have the time to shop at stores and physically pick out the items they wish to have. Some Facebook pages and websites have shopping cart options so people can just load up and check out the items they have. Of course, you’d have to get a merchant status so people can use their credit cards to pay, and you’ll also need to work closely with a courier or forwarder to ship your items.

3 Create a Website and Monetize It

This is a little more complicated and advanced than the first two because you will be requiring some Seach Engine Optimization (SEO) skills and knowledge on google adwords. You can make money from a website through Adwords as well as paid advertisements. When your website is popular and youhave lots of followers, marketing and advertising people will approach you in order to place their ads on your website. You can research more about this method online and plan your course of action.

These are just three of the common ways to make technology and computers work to your advantage. Remember that people are now online most of the time, so where people are is also where your next sale or profit is located.
