how to make money from my laptop

I’ve come across many people each day that are looking for a ‘GET RICH QUICK‘ way on how they can make money from a to make money from my laptop

I’m sorry to share that it simply does not exist.

IF you happen to know of a legitimate get rick quick method, please do share in the comments below.

There are ways in which you can in fact make a substantial amount of income using a laptop, but it will require work on your end, not too different than working away from a computer.

Instead of giving you a bunch of false promises and expectations, I will show you what’s working online and which ways you can begin earning money in 2016 and beyond.

How To Make Money From My Laptop

There’s a lot of places claiming you can make $10,000s of dollars online doing ZERO work and at the push of a button;

It ain’t gonna happen….

I’ve listed REAL ways in which people are making money online today and in some these ways people are earning full time income online and I’d like to share how you too can get started for free.

My Top Recommendation

Affiliate Marketing – This is an excellent way for beginners to start earning online. Sure there’s a slight learning curve, but it’s a doable and legitimate business.

Essentially with affiliate marketing, you can earn a living selling stuff on the internet without owning any of the items.

Other companies or individuals will pay you to display their products or services onto a website of your own. You can even do reviews on products or services you would recommend and not recommend and earn as well.

Getting started is very affordable and for those unfamiliar with working online, this is not a traditional job that will pay you for a certain amount of hours you ‘put in’.

There is no limit to how much you can make and I can tell you right now if you take your business serious, take the time to learn and apply how to do it, you can make some serious income from your laptop.

For a great place to start learning how to begin in affiliate marketing, start here. It’s completely free to begin.

Other Ways

Using Your Skills– You can offer a service online and put your personal skills to to make money from my laptop

There are places online which will allow you to showcase your talents such as proofreading and editing, logo designs, editing videos, creating sound effects, or even something as simple as creating someone a ‘fan sign’.

Sites like Fiverr make it easy to post your work where you can earn up to $5 per work exchange, hence the name Fiverr.

Though $5 isn’t much, this can actually add up into some decent revenue if people are enjoying and recommending your work enough.

Then there’s sites like Skillshare where people are teaching others via video. People are sharing there knowledge in areas from gaming to music and more. You control (mostly) what you would like to charge but keep in mind the website gets a percentage too.

Youtube– We all have a friend or know of someone who is inspiring to be the next greatest thing on Youtube.

I don’t discourage them, but root them on and let them know it’s going to be a lot of blood, sweat and tears on their end. If it’s something you enjoy doing and have a plan, go for to make money from my laptop

With Youtube you can post any non explicit videos of any topic of your choosing. It’s easy enough to record a video and just about everyone has access to a camera in this day and age on their cell phone.

At the same time recording the video itself may be the easiest part. Expecting every video you make to go viral (especially when starting out) is like expecting to win the lotto each time played.

My best advice is to stick with it if it’s something you want to do, gain a solid, loyal fanbase (subscribers), and just be yourself.

By becoming a Youtube partner you can earn money at a rate of about $1 to $3 per 1,000 video views with displaying ads. So obviously:

More videos = more views = more potential earnings.

Work hard, be persistent. It’s a great way to earn money regardless of what you choose to do working from a laptop or any job offline.

Swagbucks– Swagbucks is an online rewards and cashback program. It’s one of the most popular survey sites to date.

Survey taking is one of the first ways in which people have found themselves earning money to make money from my laptop

I believe, although the pay isn’t much at all, many people refer to survey taking due to it’s simplicity and convenience. Find yourself in a waiting room, you can kill a good 20-40min taking a survey.

Swagbucks offers many ways in which you can earn “swagbucks” (their form of points) which you can exchange for currency.
100 Swagbucks = $1 USD

It’s an honest way to earn money from a laptop, but is it really worth your time? Read my full review to find out.

Get Paid For DIY- Are you crafty?

Are people always asking for your one-of-a-kind candles?, knitted scarves, handmade soaps? You can sell these and similar items on sites like Etsy.

Etsy shoppers are always in search of unique finds from paintings to jewelry to clothing. If you’re crafting something, someone is more than likely willing to buy it in the right community online.

There’s also sites like Teespring where you can design shirts and other apparel for free. There are other factors in place to ensure you see any profit.

The goal is to design a shirt which will attract people enough to buy it and to sale each shirt at a price you choose in which will help you gain profit.

 Test Mobile Apps

Apparently sites like uTest are helping testers get paid for testing out bugs in apps, amongst other things. App developers pay people to test their apps before reaching the to make money from my laptop

I never took the time to think about who was behind testing all these apps which we use today as second nature.

uTest is free to join, although there is an audition in place in which new members can see how the platform works, show off their skills, and I’m guessing to see if you made the team.

Product Reviewer– For those who may already have a website or blog in place.

Companies sometimes will pay you to review a product of theirs and write an article based on your experience with the product.

I see this happening with some of my favorite ‘Youtubers’ as they have grown over time. They will receive a product for free and in exchange leave their sometimes honest opinion for the public to decide to make a purchase on it or not.

This can be a good way to start earning extra cash with a blog or website of your own. Based on the size of your audience, you can charge companies who would like you to review items.

Why Work From A Laptop

Making money from your laptop will more than likely not happen immediately. It could take weeks or even months.

It’s something you have to stick with but with the right guidance and action steps, it will pay off generously.

Why most people are looking for ways how to earn money from a laptop:

  • In need of a job, or looking to earn more income
  • Despise their current job
  • Tired of the commute
  • Want to work less, but still maintain current or better lifestyle
  • Want more time freedom
  • Looking for something new
  • Need a hobby
  • Want to see if people actually are earning money online

Ask yourself this:

If I spent the next 5 years working hard online and made $0 but at the end of the 5 years earned enough money to run a successful business, will it be worth it?

The 5 years is of course an exaggeration, but only you can decide if spending time learning to earn or even building a profitable business online.

Most people would say Yes.

    I agree with your ideas. This is perfect way to make some extra money on the internet. I prefer affiliate marketing the most. But this way need lot of time in building site and trust with your visitors. Nothing will come over night but if you know what you are doing and put all in this, you will get paid definitely.

      Jason - 6 years ago

      I agree with you, affiliate marketing is an awesome business to get into for anyone willing to do the work and give it some time.

      I enjoy it and made it my top recommendation because it allows anyone to work for themselves, there is no limit to how much you can earn, and you can even get started for free.

      There are many ways in which people are finding success online, they just need to find something honest and works for THEM.

    What usually happens with those sites where they claim you can get rich just from pressing a button, is that once you sign up you realise that the only way to really make money from it is to promote it as an affiliate. It’s similar to how George Brown’s Google Sniper contains outdated methods that don’t work anymore, and George’s wealth comes from selling his guide, not from implementing the methods taught in the guide. And the people getting the most money from it are those promoting it, not those following the actual methods.

    There must be enough stupid people who actually sign up for these scams and then don’t bother getting refunds, otherwise, the affiliates wouldn’t make so much money promoting them.

      Jason - 6 years ago

      People do become desperate, it’s better to take the time to research a product or service before getting too involved with it or making a purchase.

      And you are exactly right, with some companies you pay to join only to come to the realization that the only way you can profit is by selling the same junk product that you just bought yourself, to other people.

      It’s a shame. That’s why I refer WA to people wanting to learn how to earn money online. WA has a lot of value and information anyone could benefit from.

    hello i am new how i make money in my laptop..

      Jason - 5 years ago

      What I like to help people get started with (and guide them throughout the process of) is starting their own business which can be done using a laptop. Starting a business is by no means a fast way to earning money online but can set you up to earning a regular income from home when done right. For that, I recommend joining Wealthy Affiliate.

      Some other ways you can make money online is by taking surveys, which doesn’t pay much, or by looking and applying for at home positions.
