5 Legit Ways to Make Money Online

Most people I know would love to make money online, but they have no idea how to do that.

That is why I devised five legit ways to make money from home: using your computer and internet connection.

I mean, anyone who can copy and paste and access a computer with the internet can do this.

Who am I?

My name is Seki Hudson, and for more than two years, I have been making money from the Internet.

I can tell you that there was a time when 100% of my income was from the Internet, although it is not the case now (I have some projects offline).

Can you become rich online?

Yes, of course, you can; I know many people who have become rich by doing online business, but I must warn you, it won’t happen overnight. You must be able to work hard and do certain things in a certain way to achieve that.

5 Legit Ways to Make Money Online

All five ways to make money online worked for me to some extent, so there is no guessing here.


When Elon Musk bought Twitter, some people thought it would die. He made many changes, including changing the name from Twitter to X.

However, the biggest change that will benefit you is their creator ad share revenue. Now, you can just get paid to post your thoughts on X.

To start making money on X, you need an active account. If you do not have one, you can create one for free.

My recommendation is to pick a niche that has the potential to attract a lot of people, something like memes or even strong opinions about sports or society.

How can you become eligible for X to ad revenue?

To be considered eligible for creator ads revenue sharing, you must:

  1. Be subscribed to X Premium or Verified Organizations.
  2. Have at least 5M organic impressions on your cumulative posts within the last 3 months.
  3. Have at least 500 followers.

When you meet those conditions, you can start making money. You can log into your account and apply to the program.

They will ask you to set up a stripe account, and when you generate more than $10 in ad revenue, they will send you the payment.

If you do not meet the requirements, you can still make money from X, you can add a link to your landing page or squeeze page and get customers that will pay you to work with them, or you can do what I do, send people to a squeeze page and then offer them affiliate products.


Become a virtual assistant.

The second legal way to make money online is to become a virtual assistant. I must be honest with you; this job will not make you rich, but it will allow you to make some extra money.

The job consists of creating schedules and working with programs like Microsoft Word. What type of job you do depends on the person you will be working for.

If you have no money and no job at all, I recommend that you give it a try. When you make some money, you can start looking for another way to make money online.

How much you can earn as a virtual assistant

About $10 – $35 per hour, depending on your employer.

How you will get paid: Mostly via payment processors like PayPal. It is a secure way to transfer money online, so you do not have to worry about not getting paid.

Where to get started




Work as a freelance writer

This job requires a lot of writing. The best part is that you can do it independently and choose what you write about. You will also start to earn and get paid fast.

It is not my favorite way of making money, but it can make you cash if you like writing.

Some writing jobs pay as much as $120 per hour, so if you take it seriously, you can probably make between $1,000- $5,000 a month. This could probably replace your job and is the obvious choice for a “writer.”

How to get started as a freelance writer

Many people are looking for content creators, but it won’t be easy to land new clients if no one knows you.

I recommend joining freelance networks and then offering the service at a lower price first and asking for reviews and recommendations.

With time, your reputation will grow ( assuming you provide great content), and you can start charging more for your content.

Some of the networks you can try are:

Create a Blog

Creating a blog can be the most stable way to make money online. With all the technological advances, it is very easy to create your blog.

You can create a blog on free platforms like Blogger and WordPress, and you can make some cash, but those blogs won’t stand out. If you want to make serious cash from your blog, you will need to create it.

To create a blog, you will need to have four things

A topic of your blog

Your blog must be about something of interest. This could be sports, celebrities, finance, or weight loss. You can blog about literally anything.

A domain name

You will need a domain name for your blog. You could choose any name, but I recommend one that is short, memorable, and related to your blog topic.

I recommend registering your domain name at Namecheap as their name suggests they are cheap and trustworthy.


You will need to host your blog somewhere. Many hosting companies exist, but most of them don’t deliver on their promises.

For all your hosting needs, I recommend Cloudways, as they are the best and cheapest. You can now get a free trial for just $11 per month.

Here is why you should host your niche site with Cloudways.

Monetizing strategy

Suppose you are going to make money from your blog. In that case, you will need to have a strategy behind it, and this could be using Google AdSense, selling other people’s products, aka affiliate marketing, selling your products and services, list building, or picking and moving one.

How to make money from your blog.

There are many ways to make money from your blog. You could sell your products and services in your blog, you could advertise other people’s products, you could sell advertising space on your website, you could put AdSense to your blog, and when someone clicks on those ads, you could get paid.

For me, list building is the most profitable way. You give something for free to your readers, and they give you their email addresses.

With time, you send them related recommended products (yours or affiliate products), and if they buy something, you make money.

You can learn more about list building here.

Building a successful blog is not that difficult, but most people, especially beginners, don’t know what to do if you’re one of those people.

I recommend you check out SEO Affiliate Domination. It is a complete course on building a successful online business.

It will teach you everything we discussed above and more, and in no time, you will have a real online business.

Affiliate Marketing

This is my favorite way of making money online, and it is the simplest and yet the most effective way to create an online income.

If you’re starting, I will recommend starting with affiliate marketing.

How affiliate marketing works

This is how affiliate marketing works

You find a person with a specific problem

You find a person who has a solution to that problem

You recommend a product from the second person to the first person, and if he accepts and buys it, you get paid a percentage of the price.

Everyone is happy. The person with the problem is happy because they have a solution.

A person with a product is happy because he sold his product, and you, my friend, will be happy because you made some cash.

This is great because you act as a middleman between the person with the problems and the owner of the solution.

You don’t need to create the solution, you don’t need a support team, you don’t need an inventory, and sometimes you don’t even need money to start it.

You need to master two things: finding people with problems and providing them with the best solution possible, and you will make money online.

Final words

Those are five ways to make money from home using your computer and internet connection. Don’t try all methods at once; pick one that appeals to you and give it a try.

If it does not work out as you expected, try another one. Don’t overthink it; take action and start generating money online.
