4 Ways to Make Money Online

If somebody would have asked you five years ago where do you see yourself in 5 years, I doubt anyone would have said stuck at home; removed from society and hand sanitiser bottles decorating your new “home office”. 

We have all been forced to re-evaluate our hopes and dreams for the future. What to do next, where to start and will it be realistic to start something new in this uncertain time? People losing their jobs left, right and centre would make anyone anxious to move jobs or to even begin any new challenge with the possibility of ending up at a dead end. But isn’t that the reason why we are all striving to be better; stronger; slimmer; richer; and healthier than the day before? 

That is life, taking us on journeys we would have never in a million years dreamed of taking if it wasn’t for difficult times and difficult situations. Like the quote we all know written by an unknown author states “a comfort zone is a beautiful place but nothing ever grows there”. Today might be the best day to take that first step into the uncertain, who knows this might be the start of something bigger than you ever imagined. Today could bring you one step closer to being your own boss, make your own working hours and have the flexibility to spend time with your loved ones.

As we all know everything you post can be seen by millions around the world on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook etc. whether you are a baker; fitness fanatic; make-up artist… the possibilities are endless and so are the followers. To make a good income as a social media influencer you will first need to build a good-sized audience and keep them engaged. It helps to have a niche focus and clear target persona. Authenticity is essential. Brands also targeting that group will start approaching you to do promotions. 

Currency trading

Foreign exchange, or Forex, trading has become increasingly popular, especially among women. New technology and trading platforms mean that it is something you can very easily do from home in your own time. New digital currencies, like bitcoin, are also available to trade, via platforms like thecryptorobo.com/tr and some of those who started early in this space have made a fortune. But bear in mind that while you can make good profits you can also lose everything, so proceed with caution and a solid education in what’s involved.
