It’s not something hard to do. There are some sites on the internet that solely deal with skills in that area.
Some bloggers may announce they need an editor, some may not. But, no one want his/her visitors to come across errors on his blog. To apply, you can use the contact page of a popular website/blog you know and suggest to them you can edit their posts for them. Try as many as possible and see what comes out of it.
If you have a website/blog you can do it for free, do. Because that will serve as your portfolio.

How long have you been on Facebook? Have you made any money out of your stay? No? the good news is, now you can monetize your stay on your Facebook.
This sharing of posts is different from the one you do when you share an interesting or helpful article you read. You do it because you get something from it and it must be consistent.

5). By selling your eBooks.
Can you write an eBook of demanding subject matters? Whatever skill you have, there are millions of people searching for same skill every blessed day. But in order to do, you need some levels of professionalism. As a Nurse, you can write on “Business Ideas In Nursing,” turn it to PDF format, get some nursing blogs to submit it and see if you won’t make some cash.
If all your books are still in hard copy, think twice.
6). You can make money online by offering tutorials
What do you know how to do? Cooking? Drawing? Graphics? Health educating? Etc. You can create a video tutorial for whatever you are good at. Fashion out a good marketing strategy and see if you won’t make money online.
Some bloggers are ready to buy your video tutorials as long as they find it helpful for their audiences.

Digital products such as eBooks, templates for CV, stock photos (the big fish in the niche are Gettyimage, canva etc), mobile applications (have you ever seen some applications for sale on google play store?), and so on.

Skills needed to make money online
Just as you don’t expect a mathematician to be giving health talk in hospitals, you can’t just wake up and set out to make money online on areas you know nothing about. Some areas require some/all of these skills;
- Must be a good communicator: For you to pass across your information and make your audiences understand, you must know the skill.
- Must know how and enjoy writing: If selling of ebooks or writing for blogs is the way you want to, it is require of you to let writing be part of you. Don’t forget, some bloggers (including me) may request for your past works. Remember, no bloggers want to hire copy and pasted writer. If you want to write for blogs and websites, you need the knowledge of SEO.
- Must be able to face the camera. If you are doing video tutorials, you must be bold and confident. If you lack the confidence, before you know it, your audiences are gone.
- Art of selling: Yes, nothing happens until someone sells something. You must be able to understand your prospects, what their problems are and solutions you can proffer.
- Keep moving despite “NO“: You are going to get some NOs from your prospects and some people you are planning to deal with. Don’t let it stop. Move to the next person.
