#2. Writing – This has to be the most popular option for many women. Anyone can open up a text editor and start writing. It doesn’t take a genius to learn how to become a freelance writer online. You can read and research on how to write articles and web copy, but your best bet is to just download a bunch of templates to help you with the writing process. Once you’ve gotten comfortable, you wont’ need the templates. There are plenty of places to find clients online. Once you’ve got a big client base, you won’t need to go looking anymore. They’ll just message you whenever you need work. In fact, you can combine this job with the one above. Invest your money from writing in trading binary options. Or, vice versa.

#3. Web Design & Development – This is something that takes a little more skill, but you can easily make a good amount of money online if you know how to do this. Even if you don’t know how to code or design exactly, you can still make a lot of money if you just know how to put up and manage websites. A lot of people don’t know how to put up a WordPress website or manage the content. If you can perform that role, you can make a good chunk of change. You can also upsell SEO and writing services to your web design & development clients.

The Internet opens up a lot of ways for women to make money online. There are dozens of services you can upsell and promote to your clients. It’s really easy once you get comfortable with writing, WordPress, and all the rest of that jazz.

    With so many bloggers writing for free it’s almost impossible to make any money online as a writer. Sad to have to say it, but it’s very true. I’m a freelance writer myself, and the competition is from the free writers.
