If you’re already running a blog about cooking and your menus, and you haven’t made a video on how you do it, then it’s time for you to make 2 and even hundreds of videos, attached those videos to your cooking tutorial articles. Remember that showing pictures to people isn’t enough, but making videos about how you do it is much better and would even double up your earnings online.

2. WRITING ARTICLES – when you publish 2 or more articles online, then it means you’re blogging. You’re sharing your knowledge and expertise to the world wide web. Writing articles is one of the most common type of blogging. Millions of people are making money from their writings. There are several websites you can join for, if you want to make money blogging without owning a website. There are thousands of niche you can choose from and for you to be able to make money blogging (from your writings) you have to choose the right niche that has a low competition. But if you think you can beat other competitors that is competing for the most viral niche, and you think you can beat them down and can put yourself at the first page of any search engine then go for it.

3. PHOTO BLOGGING – Photo blogging is another type of blogging, it’s all about sharing photos online, so if you’re into photography you can simply start a blog and share your photos online. Writing a short description or explaining what was the photo is all about would be more effective. And you can also write quotes on it and share it with people, people loved quotes, it inspires them when they read it, they wanted to get inspired everyday, so writing inspirational quotes to your captured photos before sharing them online, would be interesting.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO EARN A MILLION DOLLARS ONLINE THROUGH BLOGGING?
Yes, but you will never earn that million dollars in a short period of time if you’re not doing any monkey business online. Blogging had been making millionaires for years now, becoming a millionaire through blogging would take time, other successful bloggers took 10 years of blogging or more before they became a millionaire, and I’m sure that blogging alone isn’t just the only business they had out of those 10 years, maybe they’re selling products too or promoting affiliate programs. It is possible for an individual to make at least $1,000 to $10,000 dollars a month by monetizing their blog with Adsense or any other advertising network companies. But for you to reach that $10,000 dollars a month (goal) you must have at least 3 to 6 websites running and has a good traffic generation in order for you to make that amount with any advertising network such as Adsense and others.
For beginners, who can’t seem to afford to buy a domain name or who doesn’t have an idea how it works, then it is better for you to start blogging at blogger (googlebites.blogspot.com)
where Google allows you to monetize your blog using free hosted account. You can also use weebly.com as your free hosted account, because Weebly allows you to monetize your blog with Google Adsense, you will receive the 50 percent ad sharing revenue while the other 50 percent goes to Weebly management. It is also good for newbies to join ad sharing revenue sites such as Hubpages, Bubblews
, Squidoo, Triond, Allvoices, Hellium
and many more, if they want to make an extra income from their articles.
LEGITIMATE WAYS TO MAKE OR EARN A MILLION DOLLARS (ONLINE)
1. STARTING YOUR OWN DATING WEBSITE
– There are thousands of dating sites around the web, but only few of them had been very successful, those that are making a million dollars (or even more) per month. And yet Plenty of Fish
is still on top. Markus Frind (founder of POF) the vancouverite
behind Plenty of Fish and he was lucky enough to have his dating site very successful among any other dating sites that has been around for years now. He created POF few years ago and right now POF has over 55 million active members with 50,000 signs up per day. Seconded to Match.com and eHarmony
. Creating your own dating website is easy, as long as you know how to manage it, I think an international dating website will give you millions of sign up. Letting all the people around the world to use your dating service to find their true love or other half (online).
HOW DOES A DATING WEBSITE WORKS?
Some other dating sites I know are only collecting payments from men while they don’t collect payments from women using their dating service. Why? Because most of women don’t join a dating website, if they had to pay for the membership, while men are always willing to pay the membership fees just only to find their one true love or just to find someone to have some fun. It seems that there’s more lonely people around the world who are looking for a lifetime partner than people who are looking for an opportunity to make money online (don’t you think?). Some other dating websites are free to join, and they may not be earning or making a million dollars from their website but yet they make money by placing ads (from Adsense) to their website.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT NAME FOR YOUR DATING WEBSITE
Choosing the right name for your dating website is important, it needs to be interesting when people hear about it. Also putting a testimonials section is important, people would think that the website has a good dating service once they read plenty of testimonies from members who have found true love from that dating site. They’ll get inspired to join and will invite their friends as well to join the site. Everyone dreams to be happy in life to build their own family someday, they just wanted to have a successful relationship. And as a dating website owner, you must be able to have an advice section for those individuals who are looking for a relationship advice. A chat room and a live video chat is very important as well, people wanted to see who they are talking with, and they wanted to know if they are talking to a real person.
2. STARTING YOUR OWN BUSINESS (ONLINE) – There are few online business you can choose from, if you really want to make a million dollars. You can start your own writing community or revenue sharing sites, like Squidoo, Hubpages, Triond, Bubblews and any other popular ad sharing revenue sites. Make sure that you have a good customer service so people won’t complain when they have to wait for 2 months to receive their earnings just like what had happened to Bubblews. But actually right now bubblews is working on that and is trying to improve their customer service.
3. STARTING YOUR OWN FOREX OR BINARY OPTIONS TRADING BUSINESS – I am not sure how much money does a binary options trading business owner or forex trading business companies make. But for sure they are making tens of thousands or even millions of bucks from their trading business (don’t you think?). Investing at any binary options trading can be risky and sometimes other binary options trading turns into a scam. But still there are few trusted Binary Options Trading Companies that are legit. The only problem is that, people would complain (that the site is a scam) when they started losing big bucks without even realizing that any online trading such as Binary options and forex are considered as gambling. Though binary options trading id another way of making money online fast or what we call making thousands of bucks every 30 to 60 seconds.
