Make money online became more popular in recent years as many people find ways to earn more aside from their current jobs. Many websites in the internet are offering methods on how to make money online but most of them are scams.
It is very important to distinguish the genuine from scams since most of the time you are required to pay for something. In reality, there’s really money involve if you really want to make money online.
One thing I’ve learned on how to tell if the site is genuine or scam is whenever the site is to good to be true. You know lots of sites are offering instant return on investments with big interest rates for example 30% in one month. They are called high yield investment (HYIP) programs.
There are really many legitimate and genuine ways on how to make money online. Here are some ways you can do to make money online:
1. Online Stock Trading
If you are good in stock trading and you have a substantial amount of money in your stock account, you can do this every trading day. You can make money from your profit each day you trade stocks.
This method of making money online is very risky since you don’t know what will happen to the market unless you are really an experienced stock trader. So a bit of caution here for newbie in stock trading.
2. Create a Website or Blog
