3 Hella-Cool Legit Ways To Make Money Online

When it comes to legit ways to make money online, it can get very overwhelming, frustrating and down-right very expensive if you don’t know what you’re doing.

The reason its overwhelming, is because there is a lot of money to be made selling to people who are looking to make more money. Because of this you just don’t know whats legit until you’ve done your own research.

My goal, in this article, is to spark some insight into you on how to find legit ways to make money online. So you don’t get scammed or fall into a dead end business opportunity.

The very easiest way for a newbie to make money online is to start a blog on a popular topic and write about that topic daily until you are receiving free traffic from the search engines.

Then make money by placing advertising throughout the blog. I would start by using the Google’s AdSense network. All you have to do is sign up and they will give you a piece of code to put on your blog that will pop the ads to your blog visitors. When people click on the ads you get 68% of the gross amount the advertiser paid for the ad.

This can be anywhere from.05 cents to $8.00. To do this full time and make a significant amount you are going to have to write a lot of content and learn some search engine optimization. This will allow you to get your blog ranked high in the search engines, bring in more visitors and get more ads clicked on.

The second way I recommend, of making money online, is with affiliate marketing.

This can be done in many ways but the basis of it, is selling other people products and getting a big slice of the profit. They handle all the back-end work, customer service, returns, money issues and headaches.

That’s what makes it ideal to someone just starting out. I recommend you start by joining an actual affiliate network. They can provide lots of free detailed training and leverage.

Here are a few:

  • ClickBank

    – Commission Junction

    – Neverblue

Just fill out the application and be legit with them. Tell them you are just starting out and need their guidance.

The third legit way to make money online, is by offering a service as a freelancer.

Many websites like oDesk, eLance and guru.com have freelancers who advertise their “skills for hire”.

These are usually on a hourly or lump sum basis. You might have to work for very cheap at first to get some feedback in your profile, but its worth it. The key to doing this is learning a valuable skill, usually marketing related, that small entrepreneurs would need.

Including:

  • Article Marketing

    – Video Marketing

    – Link Building

    – Search Engine Optimization

    – Data Entry

Get courses and take classes on the skill you want master. Become so proficient that you are able to teach a seminar off the top of your head if you had to. Replacing your job income and finding legit ways to make money online is not hard, it just takes time and effort.

Retina Ready

HiDPI screens are a common feature among mobile devices nowadays, so having a retina ready website is a must.
Upshot uses vector graphics and @2x files to insure full retina / HiDPI compatibility.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Font Awesome Integration

Besides other included icons, Upshot features the popular Font Awesome icon pack. Always updated to the latest version, Font Awesome can always come in hand with its minimalist icons.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Rich Typography

Google Fonts is one of the most complete source of free web fonts. With more than 600 high quality fonts, you can customize your website to any style of feel.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Drop Down Menus

When using complex page hierarchies or content rich websites, drop down menus could definitely come in hand. Upshot features a two-level drop down menu, that is also visible on mobile devices.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  
One / Multi Page Structure

You can either set your website as a one page layout, a multi page layout, or a combination between the two of them.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Translation Ready

Upshot is fully WPML compatible and also includes .mo and .po files that can be translated using an appropriate software like PO Edit.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Parallax Scrolling

The parallax scrolling effect is a nice effect to have on your website. With Upshot, you can set parallax backgrounds to pages, single or multi page sections and you can also control the speed and container span.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Unlimited Colours

Personalizing the colours to your favourite ones should be a must have option for any theme. Upshot allows you to edit almost any colour in the theme, using either theme options or page elements.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Video Backgrounds

Using a video as background instead of an image could definitely make your website more appealing. With Upshot, you can set video backgrounds using Youtube or Vimeo as source.

SEO Ready

Getting your website to rank first in Google requires you to provide good and relevant content, but it?s our duty to insure proper code formatting that helps at better scoring from Google.

Cross Browser Compatible

properly on all of them.

Server Requirements

Because HighGrade Theme bundle a lot of premium and complex plugins, there are some minimum server requirements to be met:

- at least 128MB memory limit
- read / write permissions to wp-content/uploads folder
- mod_rewrite enabled
- ZipArchive Extension enabled
- PHP version 5.6 or greater
- MySQL version 5.6 or greater

Some recommended values:

- upload_max_filesize: at least 32MB
- max_execution_time: 180
- post_max_size: at least 32MB
- memory_limit: at least 128MB
- max_input_vars: at least 1000, but as pages are more complex (with page builder) the higher number will be best.
