Where to start? I thought a good place to start looking for ideas, to make £100,000 a year, would be on the internet, so I Googled “How to make £100,000 on line.” The criteria here is to find ideas that a) have the potential to make my target earnings, and b) don’t take much investment to set up. Check back on this post from time to time, as I will be adding things to the list as they attract my attention. Any suggestions you have of things I could add to this list are always welcome. The way I see it, the more ideas there are to investigate, the greater the chances of reaching my goal.

So, as you can probably imagine, there are thousands if not millions of sites out there, telling you ways you could get rich on the internet. Some, I hope are genuine, some I’m sure, not so much. I’m just going to have to use intuition on this one, and follow what seems viable and interesting to me. Like I said before, I’m sure I’ll make  mistakes, but I hope I’ll come through them without too many battle scars, and if possible avoid injury altogether. My wish is to find success, as quickly and painlessly as possible. Lets see.

The List:

  1. Teaching online – Udemy.com
  2. Selling – Ebay.com
  3. Publish kindle books -Amazon.com
  4. Sell photos online – Shutterstock
  5. Create a blog – WordPress.com
  6. Sell T-shirts online – Teespring.com
  7. Trading – Various
  8. Dropshipping – Various
  9. Affiliate Marketing -?
  10. Start an online shop – Shopify.com
  11. Create Apps – Swifty app, Xcode
  12. Gambling strategies – various

This is my first rough list of ideas that could be viable, with an example of an associated website tagged next to them, when possible. Feel free to write your own list of things that interest you. If some of those things are the same as this list, then stay tuned. If not, good luck on your journey, and I’d love to hear from you if you find any more interesting and viable ones. Some ideas may overlap, and I’m not really sure what some of them mean yet. I know, get with the programme grandad.

Ok, so here’s a list of ideas, now what order to do them in? Well, looking down the list, I immediately think I could put the first four on hold for now, until I get a good idea to pursue them further.

Teaching. I don’t feel much of an expert in anything. More of a “Jack-of-all-trades” if you like. I recon you have to be quite an expert in something to be able to teach it, or at least teach it well, especially if people are going to pay for it. I envy people who are good at teaching, and are experts in their field. More thought required on running a successful Udemy course.

Selling stuff on Ebay. I don’t have much cash to buy stock to sell. I don’t really have room to store stock. I can’t afford to invest in a storage facility. Will I need staff to run this for me? One to revisit when the investment funds increase.

Publish kindle books. I think you need either the ability to tell great stories, or you need to be really knowledgeable about something to be able to write a book. I suppose you could research material to put in a book, but that is basically looking at books and articles that other people have already written, and writing it in a way that makes it looks like you wrote it. Its probably a question of adding value here. Is it possible to write a book on a subject that explains it in a simpler, better, quicker, more cost effective way? I like reading fiction. Some of it I find enjoyable, others not so much. I just find reading fiction such a time commitment, so it usually gets resigned to tagging along with me, and filling in time when i find myself waiting for something else to happen. Imagine waiting rooms, public transport, etc. I also don’t think I know enough about what makes a great story to be able to tackle it yet. I’m sure there is guidance out there on the internet somewhere. I envy good writers. Put this idea on the back-burner.

Sell photos online. Again, sounds like a good and fun idea. Take lots of great photos, upload them onto a photo sharing website and get paid. I like taking snapshots as much as the next person, especially on my phone. Do I think they’re good enough to sell, not really. Would be nice to think that I can spend some time, on all these wonderful holidays I am going to take, taking beautiful, professional quality photographs, and getting paid well to sell them. Also a chance to buy lots of expensive camera equipment, perhaps? I envy good photographers. Another back-burner idea for me.

Enjoy your day. Wishing you health, wealth, and happiness. Bye for now.
