Copywriting is a big business in the online world. Copywriters are employed by almost every business to write blogs, marketing materials and emails. If you have some writing skills you can score a gig writing about just about anything.

When you first start out, copywriting might not pay that much, but if you build up some bylines, then you could end up earning $50+ per hour. Most companies don’t require you to have any specific qualifications in the writing field, but they do like to see evidence of your past work if you have any.
2. Teach Online
If you’re a native English speaker, a really simple and easy way to make money online is to teach. People in non-English speaking countries like China and the middle east are mad about learning English and, since they can’t do it in person, they often take their lessons online.
Depending on which company you work with, you could earn upwards of $20 an hour simply for chatting with students in English. Due to the high demand for online teachers, you can literally get employed as an online teacher in less than a week. In addition to this, you don’t even have to have any experience working as a teacher to land the gig. This article has some more information about becoming an online English teacher.
