Solved! The Top 10 Myths About Making Money Online 


Myth #1) You have to own a website to make money online.

There are so many different ways to make money online, you just have to find them! Continue reading or check out some of our lists for some great examples. 


-Myth #2) There aren't any fun jobs online. 


Okay... proofreading, transcribing, and HTML coding wouldn't necessarily fall into our "Fun" online jobs category; However, there are a lot of fun jobs out there. Swagbucks, for instance, awards users digital currency that can be redeemed for gift cards or PayPal. They have many different ways to earn such as playing games, watching videos, and of course taking surveys. 

Some other fun online jobs include: editing photos, creating animations or digital art for websites or videos, product testing, testing website functionality, social media management, logo design, etc. 


Myth #3) You can't make money online fast. 


This myth does have some truth to it, depending on the method you choose;However, there are plenty of ways to make fast cash online. Some examples of making quick money on the web include, but aren't limited to:     When you list an item on eBay, it can be sold in under an hour depending on what the item is. 

If you have a certain skill you can list it on Fiveer and earn a lot of money very quickly depending on what that certain skill is. 


Myth #4) There's No Legitimate Money Making Websites.


This myth is highly incorrect. The high number of scams online discourages people from seeking out the real, honest websites for making extra income online. This is in fear of being scammed out of money, time, and their feeling of security.  There are way more stories in the news warning people about online scams vs. stories telling people about the legitimate money making sites. That is exactly what our website is wanting to accomplish, showing the people that their are real websites for making extra income. 


Myth #5) There's no money in it. 


I'm not sure who came up with this one, but this is false. There is endless amounts of money to be made online, for just about any niche or hobby there is. Some other examples of high paying income streams on the internet  include: ad revenue from your website or blog, marketing campaigning for other people's website or blog, web design, drop-shipping, web promotion and social media marketing, website affiliates, content writing and freelancing, and so much more. 


Myth #6) There's No Easy Way To Make Money Online. 


If you're doing something you love to do and could make money from it, that would be considered easy money right? Well there's plenty of places online that want to pay for your skills or hobby! There's money to be made from: writing, playing/selling music, monetizing your YouTube videos, arts and crafts, tutorials for your craft, and everything in between!

Myth #7) You have to be a computer genius to make money online. 


HTML, programming, and website design are all great ways to make money online, but they're most certainly not the only ways nor is it a requirement. If you are wanting to make a website and receive ad revenue then there are many different options out there for those who don't know how to code. GoDaddy has a really easy to use drag and drop website builder that allows anyone to create a website. We even used it to make this site! 




Myth #8) You can't have a full-time job online


Another false myth... there are tons and tons of people who strictly work from home online and make as much, or more money than an office job position does. Being a webmaster (owning your own website) is a great example for a way to make enough money to quit your day job. Some great ways to monetize your website are Adsense, affiliate links, and selling products that fit your websites niche. You have endless opportunities for generating revenue from owning a website. You can also make enough money to work online at home by running someone else's website, writing the content, or designing the website as well as providing maintenance on it. 


Myth #9) You have to spend money to make money online. 


Historically speaking, spending money on the right tools does in fact have the potential to generate more money. However, there are so many free recourses online that can show you how to do these things yourself. Overall, spending more money usually provides a better revenue stream, but you definitely don't HAVE to spend money to make money. If you do spend money, think of it as an investment in yourself, and don't let it go to waste. Example: As a website owner you can either optimize your SEO, or "search engine optimization", for your site yourself, or have a professional do it for you. You can pay someone to design the website or you can do it yourself and save money, but put more time into learning how. If you're willing to put in the time and effort, you'll save a lot of money in the long run.
