7 Ways To Earn Extra Cash Using The Internet In 2017

Here we are in the first month of 2017, and there is no better time than now to start making some extra money using the internet!

The following are 7 proven ways you can use to start earning extra cash this brand new year.

Method #1: Freelancing

This first method involves you becoming a freelancer and providing your services through the internet.

For instance, if you are proficient in photoshop, you can provide your photoshop services on various platforms such as:

  • 99Designs
  • Fiverr
  • Upwork
  • Elance

There are a myriad of other digital services you can provide as a freelancer. For example, you can be a proof-reader and earn some cash just by proof reading content for others.

Become a freelancer today and start selling your skills for money!

Method #2: Teaching

This second method involves you teaching others how to accomplish specific tasks.

For example, you can show others how to cook pasta using your homemade recipe through an ebook.

Then, you can make even more money by selling the recipe or creating easy to follow instructional videos.

Depending on your expertise, you can also teach people how to solve specific problems through online coaching.

To do that, you can use Skype (which can be downloaded for free) to arrange coaching sessions to teach your students, and then charge them for the teaching.

There are a million and one topics you can teach… and as long as you do the research and know your stuff, you’d be able to find things you can teach! Examples include high school chemistry, relationship mending, how to do hot yoga, etc.

Method #3: Selling Tshirts

Yes, you too can design your t-shirts and sell them.. all for free.

A great platform you to do this on is Teespring.

The good thing about Teespring is that there is no cost for you to submit a design for the t-shirts.

When you first start out, all you will need to do is set a sales goal (number of shirts to sell) to achieve within a period of time, and if you reach the goal, your design will be printed and you earn the profits!

Teespring will then manufacture and deliver the shirts for you. If you do not reach the sales goal, it will just mean that the shirt won’t be manufactured and there will no loss on your part.

This is a wonderful method that takes zero investment, yet has the potential to make you an easy 4 figure payday FAST.

Method #4: Selling your old stuff

Since it’s the new year, what you can do here is some spring cleaning (as we all do)…

… then sell the stuff that you don’t use anymore!

These can be stuff like hammers lying around your home (think old tools), old unused devices (do you know an old 2011 iPad 2 still sells for $130?), and anything and everything your imagination can fathom.

Go do a google search for #2017FlipChallenge to get more ideas on stuff you can begin selling today to make a bunch of cash!

Here are some platforms that you can use to sell your physical items.

  • eBay
  • Etsy
  • Craigslist
  • Amazon

This method also works with domain names that you hold and websites that you own but don’t update anymore. Sell them on Flippa.com.

Method #5: Writing

If you are a capable writer in your field of study or interest, then you can write quality content to make a bunch of money fast.

A place you can check out if you want to make money writing is iwriter, which has an ever growing demand for quality freelance writers.

In addition, there are blogs that need paid writers and all you have to do is do a quick google search and you would find them.

Next, you also can write great informational articles for your own blog and then start promoting affiliate products or making money by placing Adsense Ads.

In the world of 2017, quality content is ever in demand. So, in my opinion, freelance writing will continue to rise in demand.

“Write good content, make good money.”

I’m going to make that one of my living mantra for the year ahead ūüôā

Method #6: Doing Surveys And Tests

There are still legitimate companies that pay out members for completing surveys online.

For example, there are places Inboxdollars and SurveyClub.

(Do note that there may be membership fees involved in these programs.)

You can also become a test user at UserTesting and make $10 per test of an app you do.

This here is a simple method you can start applying today to make some money fast.

Method #7: Video

Main idea: Become a YouTuber and earn via ads revenue and sponsorship.

If you are passionate about a topic or subject, starting a YouTube channel is a great way for you to earn extra cash.

First, you will need create videos and slowly build up your YouTube channel views. Once you have a substantial amount of YouTube video views, you can start to earn via ads.

To step up your revenue, you may also seek sponsorship from relevant partners.

For example, if you have a channel that talks about dog training, you can seek out dog food companies to ask if they would like to sponsor your next YouTube video. With this, the sky is the limit and you can go as high as your imagination allows.

Conclusion: Take Action And Prosper

WAKE UP CALL (Secret To Making Real Money Online)

EwenChiaPhoto¬†I thought I’d write this post for you so that you can succeed online for sure…

In fact, if you act upon the information here, YOU WILL SUCCEED.

You see, here’s the reality and¬†this will probably hit a few hot buttons…

With the vast number of diffferent business models, methods and products available¬† online today to help you start an internet business and¬† hopefully make money online…

I’ll be as LOST as many of you if I was just starting from scratch!

I do get it.

I do see your point.

That it’s not easy at all.

You know what?

It’s time for a huge¬†WAKE UP CALL!

Why? Because apart from the direction you need and the many choices you’ve to make, a HUGE cause of failure has everything to do with…



Meaning, you. Yes, you and only you, are responsible for your own success or failure, not anyone else, not me, not them, but you.

Like it or not Рthe truth can hurt. This is going to sting but it needs to be said especially at this time.

Remember (and I’m not necessarily referring to anyone in particular but)…

Losers complain, whine and blame others. Winners just DO whatever it takes to succeed, with NO excuses.

Now before you go yelling at me, let me explain…

Most people do NOT think and do what is required. It’s too hard work.

What? Think and do? What’s that??

Thinking about your plan and goals – and acting on them to make them real.

Look at your options and decide your path.

Then write out your PLAN and goals and apply them.

That’s all that matters.

Without a plan and goals to drive, motivate yourself and act upon, no products can help you.

It doesn’t have to be a 500 page business plan, just something simple to tell yourself what you want to achieve in a certain time period.

I suggest you read my book “Make Millions Online” immediately if you haven’t yet.

Really read it, take notes and THINK about it.

Here’s why…

It will give you the direction and plan.

With the benefits of hindsight and experience (after spending 17 years online and making millions of dollars for real) let me tell you what’s working for me…

My biggest success comes from…


It’s funny, sometimes when you tell it like it is, many people still don’t “get it” and continue chasing shiny objects everywhere.

Or they complain they can’t do it because they lack the skills and knowledge.

Go get the skills and knowledge then!

Who’s stopping you?


Listen, let me say it again…

My biggest success comes from…


Get it?

All successful marketers¬†stick by this. Doesn’t matter if you’ve just started, thinking of starting or have done this for years…


Whether in 2015 or beyond. In fact, it’s going to be even more important in the future.

Get it?

Get it??

Get it???

It’s what you’ve probably been searching for, heard about it but didn’t register before.

Well take your time, it took me 5 years to “get it” way back then (but now I’m providing¬† you with an instant “short-cut” to success by telling you this!)

Once I did get it, took action and DID what I was supposed to, I became wildly successful!

And you know what?


I encourage and challenge you to do so.

So let me repeat (again), the “secret” to making real money online, even millions, is simply by…


Once more, read my book to get the full picture, there’s way more explanation there as to why it works and HOW it works.

Now the question is…

If you want to build and monetize your own email list, how the heck do you start?

You need to understand the BIG PICTURE first and what you need…

(By the way, I love big pictures as it helps you know what you’re doing. I coined my own term for it called “Big Picture Marketing” :-))

Here’s the big picture to help you build and monetize your list:

Big Picture List Building By Ewen Chia

May take some time to decipher as my writing and drawing is not the best.

But this is the simplest way to do it so you can build your list and make money at the same time.

Here’s what you need, this is what I call a “money-getting” formula…


A squeeze page is simply a ONE page website whose only objective is to get¬† prospects’ contact information or email addresses…

Keep it simple. It can be ugly and still make millions.

No distraction or other ads.



You need to sell a product to make money, it can be your own or a merchant’s product.

To keep it simple, it can be a merchant’s product (affiliate marketing) so you just need to redirect subscribers who optin from your squeeze page to your affiliate link!

You can promote an affiliate offer that pays you $20-$50 per sale, or one that has the potential to earn you up to $5,000 a sale. 

Which makes more sense, especially if it takes the same effort to promote either one? As I said in my book, making high commissions is a much better option, all things being equal.


You MUST learn to write great, money-making email messages that SELL.

You can write a series of them and presave them in your autoresponder campaign, and also send email broadcasts to your list of subscribers.


Master a few traffic strategies to promote your squeeze page…

Keep sending traffic so you grow your list and make money daily!

Oh yes, you need a PROFESSIONAL autoresponder service so you can capture, store, manage and email your list. I recommend Autorespond.com (it’s what I use).

These 4 components that you see above make up what’s commonly known as a MARKETING/SALES FUNNEL.

If you had heard or read of that phrase before, that’s what it means.

Go get the necessary skills and knowledge to do all the above WELL.

Become a MASTER at building and monetizing lists.

Become an EXPERT in creating proven marketing funnels that captures prospects and turns them into customers.

Here’s an example of one of my million dollar marketing funnels:

Ewen Chia Marketing Funnel

Creating such a marketing funnel isn’t something most people can do overnight.

In all honesty, it will probably take A LOT of effort, time, testing and experience – but it will be worth it.

An option is to outsource the creation to experts, if you have the money!

It will realistically cost you at least $5,000 for a custom marketing funnel like what I have…

Or you can get it FREE…

I’ve a time-sensitive option for you to have your own complete and custom marketing funnel designed, created and set up entirely free. It’s the whole works and something you own and¬† earn from FOR LIFE.

You can click here to see if it’s still available if you’re interested…

Anyway, once you’ve mastered the “secret” I shared with you today, you’ll NEVER be short¬† of money again because you can make your own money online. Seriously.

And that’s a real promise.

It works in almost every niche and business model online by the way.

By the way, you may or may not know, but one of my most popular products, “Autopilot Profits”,¬† teaches you this “secret” in a lot more detail, plus give you tools and more, including a quick 5-minute¬† set up that you can start with immediately.

Hope you enjoyed this post and wishing you a prosperous 2015!
