3 Free ways to earn loads of money online💸

Earning that first dollar online can seem tough, but what if I tell you that I can teach you 3 ways to earn lots of real money online? All you need is an internet connection, so without further ado, let's get started!

1. Selling Merch Online

The idea of selling Merch online can be scary, but it's actually surprisingly easy.

Here is a store I started a while ago: The Coders

I used spring for my online Merch shop, which works quite well, and spring is also completely free to use.

If you choose to go this path, I advice you to create a unique Merch store, not just any old one. For example, I chose to make a programming merch store that sells T-shirts with funny memes on them.

2. Freelancing

Unlike creating a merch store, Freelancing takes effort, and freelancing is also extremely competitive.

If you don't yet know, freelancing is when you work for someone else online, and they pay you to do so.

If you are interested in freelancing, I recommend you to use fiverr or upworks to do so.

3. Buying & Selling Stocks

Buying stocks can be very risky, but if you're good at it, you can potentially make thousands of dollars. It takes time and effort, but if you are up to it, it's worth a try.

If you are interested, I'll recommend Webull because it offers a 0% transaction fee, but you should find a stock trading platform that matches your needs.
