1. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing can be considered as an easy way to make money online for newbies.

With this method, you do not need to have your own product to sell, nor need to care about the product delivery process and customer support.

When you do affiliate marketing, you will be given links to promote the product. If customers buy through your links, you will receive commissions.

Making money online with affiliate marketing has tremendous potential as it's a way that brings very high performance compared to other forms of marketing. Small and large businesses around the world are deploying affiliate programs more and more. This will open up more opportunities.

To make money through affiliate marketing, you must have knowledge about creating website, SEO, email marketing, promotion,...

But it's true that many affiliate marketers have not earned a commission for the entire year, but there are still people who live full time with affiliate marketing. Even buy a home, buy a car, travel year-round just by doing affiliate marketing at home!

All that difference is in the mindset about how to do affiliate marketing!

2. Freelancer


Being a freelancer is becoming an increasingly popular trend worldwide. In the United States, where the freelance movement has grown most strongly, there are now more than 40 million workers in the country giving up a full-time job at the office to freelance.

By definition, a freelancer is a person who is paid to perform tasks for project owners / clients, temporary employers for a certain period of time. Put simply, they are the ones who sell their services to the highest bidder and can work for many tenants at the same time.

Freelancer can participate in a lot of work. Some of the most common jobs are:

  • Copywriter: Writing SEO website articles, PR articles, blogs, scripts, press releases,...
  • Translation: Translating books, articles,...
  • Online Marketing: Specific jobs such as fanpage administration, Facebook advertising, Google Adwords,...
  • Programming: app, website programming,...
  • Designer: 2D / 3D graphic design, brand identity design, media publications (logo, banner, poster),...

3. PPC Network

PPC stands for Pay Per Click. This means that when your website or video adverts to an ad network, they will pay you when a user clicks on the ad.

This form of making money online is known for Youtube & Google Adsense.

You can create a youtube channel or a website on a certain topic. Once your channel is eligible, you can attach adsense ads and start making money.

4. T-shirt Business

What if:

You do not need to produce t-shirts.

You do not need to ship shirts to customers.

You do not need customer support.

You only need a computer connected to the internet to work.

In fact, for many years, selling T-shirts is an MMO that has helped many people have a huge income in a short time, from a few hundred, several thousand to tens of thousands of dollars per month.

To start approaching this form, you need to understand carefully the operating model of the shirt selling platform (Teespring) and understand what steps you have to do

5. Dropshipping


Dropshipping is a form of intermediary sales. You do not need to keep products in stock. The store sells the product, and passes on the sales order to a third-party supplier, who then ships the order to the customer.

You will not have to worry about inventory issues, you can sell prices higher than the amount you pay the distributor even 2 to 3 times and be proactive about payment (you will receive money directly from customers).

6. FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon)

FBA is an Amazon service that allows you to build a warehouse at Amazon, and Amazon will help you preserve, manage and ship your goods to customers.

With this method, you can sell on Amazon without having to care about warehouse management, saving on packaging, shipping, staff,... Your job is just to find good sources, list products on Amazon and find customers.

But this is not the form for people with low budget, because you have to import goods and then list them on Amazon. It is similar to your business in the international market.

7. Blogging


This is the form of making money at home that I talked about a lot, basically this is the most interesting way to make money if you do well.

However, this way requires you to be consistent, work hard and update marketing trends.

For a blog you can apply a lot of ways to make money, but there are 4 most common ways:

  • Place ads from ad networks
  • Sell advertising space on blogs, sponsored posts
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Sell your own products, services

8. KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing)

Ebooks are products that will make a huge profit if you do succeed. There are many people who generate passive income from writing and publishing ebooks.

If you've ever made a purchase on Amazon, you've probably seen how ebooks are sold in large quantities, and even publishing ebooks that are currently being evaluated can outperform the traditional paper book publishing industry.

9. Airbnb

If you travel frequently and make online reservations, you've probably heard of Airbnb. This is a platform that allows you to book rooms for rent, and when travelers book, you will receive money.

Many people have considered the business on Airbnb as a main job. So if you have an unused room, you can become a host on Airbnb.

They even invest money to rent apartments, old houses at different locations, then decorate, decor and homestay and rent on Airbnb. This business is now becoming a trend, a way to create income at home that many people choose.

How to Identify Scammers

how to avoid internet scams

When making money at home started to become potential and real, besides that, scammers also appeared.

They often aimed at the greed of the inexperienced. These forms are extremely sophisticated and sometimes it is difficult to distinguish what is real and what is fake.

However, before going into the way of recognizing the signs of scammers, I want to reminds you the following two things:

  • All success is due to hard work, so there is no any form just sitting at home, doing a little works and get money at all.
  • No pain no gain. If you want to earn money you need to work, be active, creative.

Now I will give you some signs of scammers that you need to avoid when being invited to the job of making money online:

  • Just copy, paste also makes money. With all these years of experience working with affiliate marketing, I guarantee that there's no way you can make money just by copying and pasting. That's a scam, avoid it now!
  • Ponzi. This form is advertised as Affiliate Marketing but in fact it is multi-level marketing. Invitations such as selling courses receive a commission of up to 90% or 100%. These systems often entice you to buy the course later to be allowed to sell, for example, you have to buy course A for $1000 before you have the link to sell the course. When you sell to someone else, you will receive 90% of the commission (equivalent to $900). You will get $800 because $100 into something fund system. Thus, the creator of the system will receive a total of $200. And so you invite others in. They try to invite the next person to expect to receive a commission to recover the capital. As the person who comes in later pays for the person who comes in first, the system grows bigger and the owner of the system is the one who does nothing but gets money.
  • High Interest Investment. This method is inviting countless investors to receive 10% - 40% interest per month without doing anything. There is no such a job like that. Be careful!


Making money online is not easy at all. If you have chosen one, stick with it until you have the result. If you flounder, you waste time & hardly succeed.

No need to rush, you can slowly learn and choose the form that suits you based on your inherent strengths.
