How to Make Money Online

Need to earn some money?

Here are 10 Suggestions of Different Ways to Make Money Online:


  1. Set up a Writing Website.

Can you write? You’ll be surprised how many other people can’t. But writing is an absolutely crucial skill in today’s world. Many employers admit they won’t even finish reading a CV or covering letter which has spelling or grammar mistakes. So if you can write, you could easily help others.

Set up a website offering your writing services. If you don’t know how to build a website then a Facebook page is free. Advertise your services and offer to write CVs, letters, notifications – anything that someone might need.

  1. Register as an affiliate.

Most people don’t know but many big companies, from Amazon to B&Q offer affiliate programmes that you can join. You’ll get your own personal link with which to post products. Then you attract traffic to your blog, website or Facebook page, whatever, and promote products on that page. You’ll collect a percentage of any sales that you create.

  1. Become a freelancer.

What skills do you have? Can you do Photoshop? Can you build websites? Can you do a 5-minute film of yourself speaking gobbledegook cross-eyed, wearing a sieve on your head? Great – someone, somewhere will want you!

Register with one of the freelance sites like and sell your services. From serious, business services to fun, gimmicky stuff for people’s birthdays etc, there’s someone looking for everything, even if they don’t actually know they are looking for it!

  1. Become a photographer.

Do you have a camera? Probably, if you have a smartphone. The world is desperate for photos – and increasingly, for video footage.

Register as a contributor to one of the photography websites like or and every time someone buys one of your images or footage you’ll earn some money.

  1. Work as a Virtual Assistant, or VA.

Look out of your window. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere, you are probably surrounded by people who are running their own small businesses. Plumbers, builders, artists, writers, therapists, cake decorators – the list is endless. It’s hard work, and at the end of a long day not everyone is willing or able to start on the admin.

You could offer a service doing bookkeeping, receipt filing, data entry – basically anything a small business could need. You could even offer a call answering service so their customers don’t get stuck with talking to an answerphone.

You charge an agreed hourly or monthly amount and they get a great service that they don’t have to worry about. It’s a win win!

  1. Learn to build websites

Learn how to build websites and start your own web design/web hosting company. HG affiliate. Every business needs a website. And despite the success of companies offering build-your-own website services, there are still plenty of people out there who would rather pay someone else to do it. In fact, many of them will probably buy into a build-your-own website, get so far then get frustrated and need someone to take it off their hands. Could that be you?

Sounds complicated? Yep, it does. But learning to build a basic site is not actually that difficult. Here at Little Red Horse we recommend sites are built on the WordPress platform. It’s dependable, adaptable, easy to learn and best of all – it’s free!

Search online for WordPress courses local to you. There are also many online courses plus books like WordPress for Dummies, which tells you everything you need to know.

You then need to host the sites. We recommend Hostgator. Their hosting agreements start from literally a few dollars per month. As you can charge your customers up to £25 per month just to host one site you can easily start growing a passive income. Plus, building websites is actually really good fun!

  1. Start an e-commerce shop.

The best thing about the internet is it is a great leveller. It really is possible for a one person start-up to compete against bigger companies. Where once you needed premises, staff and a huge marketing budget to get yourself seen on the high street, that’s no longer necessary.

Thousands of people have mastered the rules of online selling – and that’s because they’re simple. Buy products cheap, and sell them for more than you paid.

One of the greatest marketplaces of all is Amazon. Its FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon) service means your stock goes directly to Amazon’s warehouses and is then shipped directly to your customer from there. You don’t even need to see your own stock!

Selling on Amazon can be a rollercoaster ride, though – speaking from experience – so you might want to think about learning on a course to learn. Unlimited Success run a great Amazon masterclass from their headquarters in Peterborough.

  1. Unleash your inner Expert!

What do you know? EVERYONE knows more than most people about at least one thing. So let the world know what you know. Write a book (it could even be an Ebook), start a blog, set up your own YouTube channel. Establish yourself as an expert and market yourself so that people know about you. Get invited on to local radio. Become the local go-to person in your area, or even on the world stage, depending on your speciality.

  1. Answer Questions!

Set up a Question and Answer website – people pose questions and you answer them for a small cost, or monthly membership fee. This could run hand in hand with number 8 – use your expertise. Have you raised 6 children? How about a site offering help and advice to other parents? Do your onions always win at the local agricultural show? Lots of other people out there want to know how you’ve done it!

  1. Become an Amazon reviewer.

Ok, it’s not actually making money but it is getting loads of discount stuff. First, you need to buy some products on Amazon and review them, so you build up a reviewer profile. Then, join a group like and take your pick from the hundreds of products posted there at discount, by sellers in need of a good review. Always remember to include this disclaimer in your review: “I received this product at a discount for my honest review”.

Oh – there’s just one downside – you might need to build/buy some larger storage furniture to keep all the random pieces you will accumulate!



Becoming employers Business success Change your life Hiring your first employee HMRC Make money online Personal fulfillment Positive action Register a business Sole trader Sole trader vs Limited company Start a business

I’ve done it!

Today was, truly, momentous!

I received confirmation from HMRC – Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, no less – that my businesses are officially incorporated as Limited companies.

My online e-commerce business and my lil baby marketing company officially exist!

Because of the costs involved in running a limited company, I will actually put them into dormant mode, as soon as the paperwork arrives from HMRC (I’ve been told I can do that and I sure hope I can).

Then I’ll continue to run them both as a sole trader, until I earn enough to warrant having an accountant and doing all the regular accountancy shenanigans that a limited company would require. But at least the names will be registered.

So exciting to receive the Certificate by email, and quite emotional too… 🙂


Our renovation business has a second employee!

The wonderful A has joined us, initially for 2 hours a week to do the paperwork, filing receipts, completing jobs and so on.

Actually it’s a role that I think will start basic but grow.

A is a formidable character who won’t be afraid to demand receipts/accounts/details from D and I – and we’ll be scared enough of her to make sure we deliver them. Just who we need to move our business forward.

I felt quite proud as I sat with her today and went through our systems. We really do have the foundations right. My very basic spreadsheets all make sense and even my colour coding didn’t look too frivolous. Now we just need to continue putting the bricks into the walls in the right order and keep building this baby 🙂

What is Life Success?

What does it take to make life a success?

And what does a successful life look like?

These are two questions I’ve asked myself a lot recently – because I’m on a journey to make success a reality.

For the past twenty years, I’ve worked hard. Firstly as a journalist, and then as a television producer and director, travelling the world making all sorts of programmes.

It sounds glamorous, but the reality is it’s been hard work.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved it, but recently it’s become harder and harder to constantly be away from home. In 2014, I slept in over 140 different beds – that’s over a third of the year in hotels. And trust me that loses its glamour pretty quickly.

Then 12 months ago, four months into an incredibly stressful, and exhausting job, I was taken to hospital after suffering what appeared to be a stroke – at 42 years old. Luckily, it turned out to be a very severe anxiety attack – the result of working flat-out for a boss who didn’t appreciate anything I did, and actually quibbled over my request to take two days off – out of four months of long, long days – to bake and decorate my step-grandson’s first birthday cake.


Obviously, I was incredibly relieved it wasn’t more serious. But it was a massive wake up call, as I recovered, I made a vow to myself – I would never work for anyone else again.

I have always wanted to run my own business, and at last it was time to do that. There literally was no going back.

Once I felt strong enough, I threw myself into educating myself and changing my beliefs. I had some serious stuff to overcome. The biggest thing holding most of us back is ourselves, and our inner lack of self-confidence, and that has definitely stopped me in the past.

But I’ve already learned some amazing tricks for banishing that negativity, and I can’t wait to share them with you.

I’ve never felt so determined to make something work, and I had some ideas of what I could do to ensure I never had to work for anyone else again.

Three main factors have guided me along this past year:

  1. My dream of starting and running my own business.
  2. A love of property.
  3. The exciting possibility of making money online.

Slowly, but steadily, I’ve started to see progress.

Right now, life is so exciting that I decided I had to share it, so I started this blog – Project Life Success.

My Life Success has literally become a Project.

I’ll be sharing my progress, as well as some of the amazing stuff I come across from other people who have already managed to leave their jobs and become financially free.

Will I be rich?

I don’t know.

And then the question is, what is rich?

Because rich is different things to different people.

The experts say the first step to success is to make some goals. And that makes perfect sense – because if you don’t set goals, how do you know where you’re going? And how will you know when you get there?

Of course, goals change, evolve and grow but my first goal is to earn £1,000 every month through my new ventures.

That’s not enough to live on, but if I can earn £1000 a month then I can earn £10,000 a month, just by doing more of the same thing, surely? And that would be much more than I’ve ever earned in a month.

If dumping the boss is something that interests you, or if you’ve ever felt like running your own business, getting into property or making money online, I’d love for you to join me on my journey.

Who knows what will happen?

I have no idea, but I promise to document my journey honestly and openly.

I really look forward to sharing my journey with you.

And who knows, maybe one day I can inspire or help you to fulfill your dreams too?
