The internet is the new GOLD-MINE

the internet is the new gold mine for lexhansplace
Rewind back to the last 10 to 15 years and we will be stuck in the 9-5 jobs, where we work our asses out, stay through out the day in the office, white collared and most times, at the end of the day we get paid a few bucks which we all know can not really cover our various expenses. This happens to be the time when we all had not so much knowledge about money making skills and opportunities on the internet as we all do today. How many of us all had the opportunity of getting the job done so quick back then and also had the opportunity to earn so much as we do now? the answer clearly is JUST A FEW OF US.

Wikipedia defines the internet as The Internet is the global system of interconnected computer networks that use the Internet protocol suite to link devices worldwide. and i had to go over the same internet to give gold mine a definition and here is what i came up with. gold mine is the field full of gold or gold ores which we all go in search of to be brought outta the ground where it lay buried by nature.

Now this brings me back to the real deal in this very post. Why did i say the internet is the new goldmine? I say this from experience and research. reason being that , there are a lot of money making opportunities scattered all over the internet that we all can benefit from (if we dig deep and have the passion for it). From research it is clear that we have hundreds or let me say thousands of jobs we all can do to earn some money, *please note that i am not saying this to discourage you reading this post from your 9-5 job* but those who know deep down that they are not well paid through the current jobs they do, can aswell take the opportunity and do something nice for themselves financially.

What are those jobs available on the internet? I will start with one i am into..

BLOGGING.

I blog for both the passion and money involved, you can ask me why passion and money , and i will answer you directly that without the passion to go into blogging, trust me you will quit as soon as you get into it and the money doesn't come, why? Its professional to be passionate, but passion without money is unprofessional. Confy Scenty of CONTECHSBLOG.

The time you commit to your blog is much and really consuming that sometimes it feels like its way beyond that of the 9-5, but at the end of the day we have a lot we can earn through it, from ADVERTS PLACEMENTS, SPONSORED POSTS, FEATURED POSTS, to name but a few.

AFFILIATE MARKETING. 

I did this way back when i started my blog, but i stopped it as i didn't know all the ropes involved in it, but of late i got a few important details about it and am working on getting something out soon on affiliate marketing. like a virtual friend of mine Chinye Onwamaka of CEECEESBLOG who owns a STORE on one of Nigeria's largest e-commerce sites once said to me a few weeks back. "Lex, there is a lot of money in affiliate marketing, as you can go into it full time and be relaxed that you make some decent earnings from it" 

You can earn when people shop for items through your links, or you can even decide to open a store on one of the trusted eCommerce companies in your location if you have an item to sell, and trust me you will be glad you did.

CRYPTOCURRENCY. 

Way back then we had little to no trust to the Cryptocurrency but the STATEMENT today in alot of peoples lips is clear (i wish i had started Cryptocurrency business earlier than now). there are alot of Cryptocurrencies one can go into, for instance, BITCOIN is one so good that the whole world looks up to it with keen interest as the market value keeps going up and high, there is a projection that by the end of this very year bitcoin may pass the 3000$/1btc value, who knows? now why don't you invest heavily in BITCOIN now and be glad and ready to sell a few of them when you see the profit made on the value after a few weeks , months or even a year.

Also worthy of mention is the Ripple coin, Ethereum coin and alot of other digital coin, and in a way i feel the DIGITAL COIN is just the future of currencies in the world now as it stands, do you also think so?
why9-5 when you can make more for lexhansplace

VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS. 

Trust me this is one very one i know has alot of money in, alot of us have alot of things to do on the internet and we have so little or limited time, and who do we turn to in this one, ? your guess is as good as mine, we turn to a set of people who help us complete these tasks on the internet from one deal to the orther, from my reasearch alot of Virtual Assistants are well paid for their jobs that some rake in well above 100$ evey month, now how good is that? perfect.

WEB DESIGN.

Alot of us have a business or service we want to put out to a larger audience today and clearly when we do so, we will need the web design gurus to build that strong and very nice websites for us to be able to put our services to a wider reach? guess what? we pay these geeks to build it for us, how about learning alot on web design and take your good knowledge into good use to build sites for people and get paid for a job well done.

MOBILE APP CREATION.

Mobile app creation is also a very good one, as you create strong and secured apps for clients and they pay you for a job well done.

GRAPHIX DESIGNING.

What will the internet or social media be without the graphix designers? little than it is now and today. without these guys, trust me we have no face to our products and services, they put in so much work and give us amazing designs for our products. there is alot of money in this as i know they spend alot to learn the ar properly and they also charge alot too for the works you get from it, there are some works for as low as $5 to as high as $100 or even more, pending on the nature of work you require from them to make for you... 

I remember two people i give praise to what they do when it comes to graphics designing. Nnanna Temitope Kalu of Logosbadge/Futureeternal and Chinedu Chukwuka of King Media... These two guys do good stuffs and i sometimes wish i had the talent in them for designing, *Big Shout Out to Nnanna Temitope Kalu for he is the brain behind my BLOG Logo and Header, feel free to check him out on Facebook/Instagram and Youtube.

  5. The internet has been around for quite some time. It's been interesting to watch it grow over the years, but one must also be careful about the information gained from the internet as the information does not always come from trusted sources.

    1. so true, we need to be careful with information, yet this topic covers more on opportunities one can make some decent money on which whoever decides to can make more research online about it before venturing into.. the internet is large to contain alot of us and allow us earn money from it which becomes important... isnt it?

  6. I'd never heard of the Ripple or Ethereum coin - this was certainly a fascinating article. I used to be a PA so have definitely considered being a VA

Now 16+ years and he now absolute cursing me as I'm the one who is now making a living and working online.

  13. These are all great ways to make money online. I started blogging years ago and went into all sorts of side hustles like affiliate marketing. However, it should be mentioned that all of these are not "get quick rich" schemes. A lot of hard work should be put in to establish your stake in the world of online business.

  25. I have to agree with you in many areas. The Internet is definitely where people can find a great source of income.

    ReplyDelete
  26. There are so many income opportunities in the internet. However, we must know how to detect scammers who offer a lucrative pay and then disappear after the work is done. It is better to join a group where you get matched with an employer. At least you know if the possible employer is "payment verified."

    ReplyDelete
  27. I completely agree! There are plenty of opportunities online that can help us earn and blogging is definitely one of those that I really enjoy. It's very rewarding!

  40. It's true there is a lot of ways to make money online. I wish that I had invested in Bitcoin seeing as the value has gone up so much but it is quite a risky investment.

  45. It is amazing the things that are available on the internet. Sometimes it does seem a little oversaturated with the same stuff but if you can find your way and stick with it you can definitely do something to make money.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes, I agree. The online world is huge. There are still a lot of opportunities and lots of jobs depend on the internet. It's now easier than ever to start a business of your own and earn money with knowledge and the internet! the internet is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  47. There are definitely lots of opportunities online, but I think it does take a lot of handwork. I think some people believe they will start a website and the cash will roll in! But there are people doing great, that is for sure, and it's nice to see.

  48. Very interesting post. I earned today my first money from blogging:) hope not last

  49. I totally agree with you! The Internet is indeed a gold mine, and I am the living proof. I work as a teacher in my private life, but in my virtual world (after the work), I am a blogger, virtual assistant, ghost writer and many other things. And all of them bring me money which I use to travel around the world and make some wonderful stories and memories.

  50. Insightful post. Yes online entrepreneuship is a gold mine and with the raise of smart phones and internet access, the playing field is more leveled than ever before. Those who sell the shuffles to dig out the gold (teach others how to make one online) are making a killing :-)

  51. I have heard a lot about bitcoin lately. These are all great ideas. I started trying to do virtual assistant but never really figured where to start.

  52. Thanks you so much for sharing this post! I've been looking at how to earn money from the internet and this has certainly opened my eyes to new opportunities!
