Ways To Make Money Online Right Now

Looking to make money online right now-- right this second?

Most people can now make some sort of income online. But there are so many more opportunities for you to explore. It is better to have a diverse range of ways to make money, from investing and learning how to invest, what a dollar-cost averaging calculator is, what split betting is, and the fastest ways to make $1000, and so much more.

Here are some great ways that you can make money online right now.

How to make money online right now

Niche blog

It helps if you choose an age that you are already interested in. A niche blog will usually have a decent audience - because it is so targetted. And you can use affiliate marketing to generate income. Learning to start a blog isn’t very difficult, but mastering affiliate marketing may take some time. 

It doesn’t cost much to start a blog, and in most cases, you can have a blog and a few pieces of content in less than seven days. Choosing a niche is very important. This should come into your block business planning because this is a business.

Build and sell software

Everybody loves software. There is an insatiable appetite for software that can improve people’s processes. It could be as simple as filters for photos, or it could be a small game that people can play in between meetings. 

There are two ways that you are most likely to make money online by building a software product. The first is having a disruptive idea for an app or software, getting feedback from customers, then raising the money to hire a developer to work with. 

The second option is that you already have some of the skills or at least willing to learn. It’s a lower cost, but a much higher time investment.

Marketable skills

Almost everybody has a marketable skill. It could be copywriting them, it could be photography, perhaps it’s web development. This is one of the easiest and most sustainable ways to make extra money. 

Freelancing might not always be scalable, as say, the start of a product-based business, but it’s not uncommon for freelancers to build a very healthy six-figure freelance business.

There are so many sites now for you to be able to look for freelance jobs. Solid gigs, flex jobs, work, and even LinkedIn is a hotbed of opportunities.


If you have a lot of insight and experience in specific fields, you can sell your knowledge and advice. You will do this as a coach or a consultant. You’ll have to take time to position yourself as an expert, and then people will very happily pay for your time. 

Coaching and consultancy online is a great way to make money. You’ll be teaching people to be better, faster, and earn more money, rather than giving them a deliverable like you would if you are a Freelancer.


In the same vein as advice, you can create courses around what you already know. Online courses, e-books, and free principles all take time upfront to create. But once they are created, they will then become a passive income for you.

You’ll need to leverage your social media, your email list, and your networks. And decide if you’re going to sell your course on your own platform, or use something like Udemy or Teachable.  If you are interested in how to create an online course check out this course guide.
