You don’t have to be a professional photographer to sell your photos for money.

Setting up a blog is now very easy. You can employ a web designer or set up one for free using world press or blogspot.  I will advise you register the blog using a host if you want to use Google adsense because they value a paid host and domain name.  There are many ways you can earn money from this, you can apply for Google adsense, when you are approved, Google will start posting adverts on your site and you get paid per click on the advert. You can also use affiliate marketing as I sated in point 3 above. You also make money from writing feature about brands , they pay for it as sponsors post. Also, you can get individual adverts and place it on the site for a fees. Blogging is a very lucrative venture . You have to pick a niche where you have a lot of knowledge. Make sure the site is easy to navigate with a fine theme, fast loading and mobile compliance.


Just like the referrers rewards above, click pay are sites where you register and help promote a link of any story after shortening it on the site. When someone clicks on the story, a 5 seconds advert is shown before they skip to view the actual story. You get paid for each view.

You can sell what you already have or buy and sell in online stores.

Online stores like Amazon, CraigsList, Ebay, Etsy, Shopify,Jumia, olx, Konga and others.

Before you  get started, here are a few general tips when selling anything online:

Get a PayPal account. If you don’t have a PayPal account, you’ll want to get one if you’re doing business online. It’s the standard in online business for receiving payment and paying others.
