How to Make More Money Online in 2013!

By January 24, 2013

Follow me on:

So I was walking past by newsstand when a headline on the cover of Inc Magazine caught my eye.

"How to Make Money in 2013," it said. Of course I bought it.

I love helping people, creativity, teaching and writing, but I also like money. How else am I going to keep my beloved canine sidekick in artisanal dog treats?

But my reaction to the catchy headline got me to thinking a little bit. Not just about business opportunities, but to the actual how of making money. Especially using the web.

I work as a consultant and check-chasing is an annoying part of my operation. Invoicing, following up, running to the bank...I would blame my bookkeeper for her inefficiency but I am my own bookkeeper! I'm glad there are apps like Freshbooks and Harvest -- they allow you to take at least some of the pain of collecting money from your clients online.

Further, I wanted to learn more about the actual process of setting up an online shop. So I did the research, so you don't have to! Check out my guide to making money online in 2013 -- and while you're at it, don't miss related articles on creating a "muse" business and affiliate marketing.

Hello im Matt. I was looking for a way to find money online too. I already have a jobworking for AAA roadside here in Alabama. I found this website through facebook http://goo.gl/DXSy5 . When I first looked at it I thought it was total scam! How could they afford to pay me $4 – $7 to call places like gieco and direct t.v. and mearly inquire about their service for time minimums of 5-10 minutes. Either way I have been payed three times since joining on Jan.10 2013 and have made $166.44 total so far. I would say I dedicate 30-40 minutes to this site daily!…Hope this helps! P.s. please dont view this as spam, this is legit as I have proof that it pays….so if you are not interested please no false claims.

Great Post. We internet marketers have to realize that online it’s not easy but it takes work. Everything is a formula offline and in the internet marketing world.

Hi Amanda :)

There is definitely an opportunity to make money online. The world is becoming a global village and you can now target any country from anywhere in the world. I believe that we need time and hard work to generate a substantial online income. It does not come overnight. The harder we work, the earlier the possibility to make money. We should not jump into it thinking we’ll be a millionaire the next day. It’s not a ‘get rich quick’ scheme.
