The best legit ways to make money and passive income online

Did you know you can actually make money online? Yeah that’s right and all you need is a computer a phone with internet access. So I’m going to show you ten websites where you can actually start making some side cash, or if you’re really serious some good money. Isn’t that amazing? On some of these websites you can actually make as much as a hundred dollars a day or even more, and the best part is you don’t have to quit your nine to five job. You can make this money working in your free time. On the internet, there are two distinct ways of making money. The first is active income with active income it’s like your normal nine to five job. You only get paid for the work you do. If you don’t work, you don’t make money! Simple as that. The second way, is through passive income. This is my favorite method, because with passive income all you do is put in the work once and the money in theory should keep rolling in without you having to do anymore work other than maybe promoting what you’ve made, or in some cases what other people it may.

So, let’s get started.


 Upwork is a website for freelancers. With upwork you’re making active income. Businesses and individuals post services on upwork if they would like to outsource, such as article writing, video editing app, development, coding… there are tons of jobs and services being outsourced on upwork. The beauty of all this is that it has a low barrier for entry. You just have to be good at something. If there’s something that you’re good at, like graphic design or coding or just about any skill, then, head on over to upwork and start making some good money.

Here’s a tip if you’re considering working on upwork. Have a robust profile that looks good. This will drastically increase your likelihood of receiving job offers from potential clients. Displaying your best worker highlighting specific experiences can and will help you stand out.

Not a lot of people know this, but you can actually make money with YouTube. If you’re considering getting into YouTube to make money, make sure you understand one thing clearly: Thanks to the new rules, if you’re planning on starting a brand new channel from scratch, you first have to reach the YouTube minimum threshold to get monetized, which means, you only four thousand watch hours and one thousand subscribers in the last twelve months. Once you reach that, you can get monetized. How much can you make on YouTube? Honestly, as much as you want, as long as you keep uploading good content that people are willing to watch your golden, and the longer the videos the more money you can expect to make. You can make anywhere from one dollar to thousands and even hundreds of thousands of dollars. The more views you’re getting, the more money you can expect to make and also you get more subscribers. With YouTube, what you’re earning is passive income. Make a few videos, and they should keep making you money consistently. You can also make money with YouTube through paid sponsorships, but with paid sponsorship you’ll need a large audience. Usually, a minimum of ten thousand subs to do that. You can also make money through affiliates, but we’ll get to that later.

No. 10: Dropshipping

With dropshipping, what you’re basically doing is selling someone else stuff for a small or large profits without having to deal with the shipping. So basically you’re acting like a broker or a middle man. You can do this by opening up a Shopify store, and then linking it up with overflow. Overflow is an app that integrates with Shopify, and it’s what a lot of people used to source for stuff they’d like to sell in their stores. The basic principle of dropshipping is, you create a store or any channel where people can buy stuff from you. Then, once they buy something from you, you pay the manufacturer usually for a lot less than what you got it for, and then have the manufacturer ship it to the customer. All without you ever seeing or touching the product. The best part of dropshipping is that you set your own price for the product you want to sell them. Take the profits and pay the manufacture the rest, so yeah, that’s dropshipping in a nutshell. If you’re interested in dropshipping, there are a ton of tutorials on YouTube that will show you the step by step guide of creating your store, finding products, advertising, finding influencers and finally shipping and getting paid. It’s a bit complicated to start, especially in the beginning, but you can make a ton of money with dropshipping.
