2. Online Auctions

People like to buy items from online auction sites as it is the right place to find the required and unique items. Anyone can run the e-commerce business by selling various products at these sites.

If you are interested in selling, then it is easy to start this business, and no special training is required. In the beginning, it is worthy to find and sell cheap and homemade products to increase your profitability.

The drop-shipping method is the popular method among the seller as they will have a continuous supply of goods at a reasonable price. Here the seller makes a contract to display and sell the stuff and not essential to receive or send the goods.

No need to worry about shipping and storage problems here and you can earn money for every sold item with no overhead costs.


It is good to track the following points to make money online with auctions websites.

1. Before start selling through online auctions, have the right mindset to set the optimistic and accurate financial expectations. You have to build your credibility, right selling strategies and do not expect to earn money overnight.

2. Register yourself for a genuine online auction site and select the demand products to sell by knowing the goods that had sold fast previously.

3. Have a look at major sellers and design your auction page professionally. It would be good to choose a group of products to sell and write an accurate description with pictures for every product you are selling.

4. After creating the ads for the products to sell, get exposure by posting banners/links to your site and share it with social networks. It would improve the traffic to your auction site.

5. Request the buyers to rate you and become a reputable seller among the people. Consolidate your buyer’s list and mail them new offers, newsletters and thanks for purchasing messages regularly.

Buying low and selling high is the secret of making money on an online auction site. For some online auction site like Clickbank, it is possible to promote the link of the product you are selling without an own auction website.

  4. Hi Nirmala,

    I’m SO glad you didn’t tell people that they can instantly come online, get into any of these three sources you shared and instantly make money. That’s such a misconception and it breaks my heart that people still entice people into investing money into things that are actually going to take a whole heck of a lot of hard work.

    In the end though it’s so worth it and so rewarding. Oh and all the relationships you can build while you’re here too. That to me is worth it almost more then the money. Okay, the money’s important but you really shared some lucrative ways that you can make money online.

    Thank you for being truthful about these.

For serious people who want to make money online, they need talent and passion to earn genuinely.

  6. Hi Nirmala,

    I think I’ll have to stick to blogging – I don’t think I’d want all the hassle involved with online auctions and I certainly don’t have the skills to do web design. If I was a techie, that’s definitely the way I’d go, though.

    Freelancing is another way a lot of people make money online – particularly people with skills in writing and graphics,

  9. Hi Nirmala,

    I really enjoyed reading your post on 3 ways to make money online.

    You are right. It takes hard work, passion and won’t happen over night. However, with the right focus, working on building traffic and developing relationships, one can create a platform which can then be monetised.

    I’ve often thought about going into the online auction space. However, I’m thinking of an appropriate product to sell in an online auction.

    Thank you.

  12. Great article Nirmala mam!

    I think blogging is the best way to earn money online because it is risk free and there are no chances of loss. It totally depends on our skills and abilities and also there is much scope in blogging.

    Thanks for the other two choices also. Web designing is also a good job if one is skilled in it.

  13. I will tell you my experience with eBay. About 4 years before I tried my hand in eBay. Saw some money. Soon got bored because I did not have much free time. It requires a lot of monitoring.

    I learnt how to write content for eBay. I realized I was good and offered my services. It was hired randomly. I knew I had to promote my services to get more orders. I quit.

    Blogging is my passion and I stuck with it.

    You can earn big money in eBay provided you learn the trade completely. Read success stories of other eBay power sellers. Ask for tips.

    If you make up your mind, please persist. eBay can be your full time rewarding business.
