Society as a whole has changed a lot in recent years.

This is largely due to the rise of the internet.

The internet makes it very easy to keep in touch with friends, buy products online or earn money from home.

More and more entrepreneurs use the internet to earn (a lot of) money.

The nice thing about it is that you have many different ways to earn money via the internet. You can also combine a number of different options.

For example, you can start a webshop and promote this webshop via social media channels.

In the meantime, you also create your own course and sell this course via digital channels to other online entrepreneurs.

Moral of the story: the possibilities to earn money from home via the internet are very extensive.

In this article you will find an overview of the most popular ways. The options are quite diverse and each has its pros and cons.

It is therefore very important to read yourself well before you start with one of the options.

In this article you can at least find all the relevant information to decide how you want to earn money from home!


Earning money nowadays can be done in many different ways. You can work for a boss, you can start your own physical store or you can get started with one of the revenue models on the internet.

An online business has so many advantages that I am absolutely in favor of this.

Firstly, the internet offers many opportunities. You are not limited and thanks to the internet you can reach a lot of people and therefore earn a lot of money.

Many successful online entrepreneurs have already preceded you.

In addition, it is an advantage that you can get started with relatively little starting capital .

You do not have to knock on the door of the bank first, but in most cases you can start immediately.

You can undoubtedly finance the minimal start-up costs yourself, which means that you also run less risk. After all, you do not have a lender that you have to pay back every month.

A third important advantage is that you hardly run any risk . For example, you do not have to take out a loan for a beautiful business property or expensive machines.

No, all you need is a laptop and a good internet connection. That is why an online business is so well suited to earn money at home.

When you combine that with a good idea, you actually have the world at your feet.

You can earn a lot of money fairly quickly and in a fun way from home via the internet.

You run virtually no risks, while you also fully determine how you spend your time and what you are going to do.

You don’t have to be accountable to anyone and you can enjoy doing business in a very nice way.

Are you interested in making money from home?

Then be sure to read on! In this article you will find various options that you have for starting your own online business from home.



A very popular way to make money from home is affiliate marketing.

It is my favorite way to make money on the internet as it has so many benefits. Discover them here: Advantages of affiliate marketing over other online revenue models .

Affiliate marketing is a form of online marketing in which you work together with two other parties.

On the one hand you work together with an affiliate network and with an advertiser.

The advertiser offers products that you can then promote on your website. You can do this after you have entered into a partnership with one of the advertisers via the affiliate network.

You then get access to the products and can use the product photos and banners.

You can start your own affiliate website, where you will promote certain products.

The advantage of this is that you can build this website in all kinds of different ways.

You can create a comparison site, discuss products in blogs, write extensive reviews or start your own affiliate webshop.

The ultimate goal is to convince your visitors to buy a certain product or service.

The visitor can then click on a link on your website, after which he/she is redirected to the website of the selling party/advertiser.

If the visitor to that website eventually decides to purchase a certain product or service, you will receive a commission for this.

After all, you have ensured that you have managed to get the visitor excited about purchasing the product.

This commission is paid through the affiliate network. You can see this affiliate network as a conduit and the connecting factor between the affiliate marketers and the advertisers.

If you want to get started with affiliate marketing, you must first register with an affiliate network. Well-known networks include PayPro , Tradetracker , Awin , Daisycon , Coolblue , and Wehkamp .

Discover the best affiliate networks in Belgium and the Netherlands and which products you can promote there.

It is not for nothing that so many online entrepreneurs have started working with affiliate marketing.

You run virtually no risk. The worst that can actually happen is that  your affiliate website does not become known to the general public. In that case you won’t make too much money.

Once you manage to set up a successful affiliate website, you can earn money in a passive way.

You can make money with your affiliate website at any time, even when you are not actively working on it.

All you have to do is add new content / blogs / reviews and optimize your website.

Do you like it? Are you interested in making money with affiliate marketing?

Then I absolutely recommend the video course The Affiliate Marketing Revolution by Jacko Meijaard . He shows you everything step by step and you can look over his shoulders.

I started making money with affiliate marketing by applying what I learned in this course. You can find my review here: Affiliate Marketing Revolution review .






Offering online training, courses and/or e-books is also a very popular way to earn money from home.

For example, take a look at the current range of online training and courses. That offer is truly extensive.

An advantage of this is that you can compose the course or training completely yourself. This costs almost no money, but a lot of time.

Once you start selling the training/courses, you can start building a form of passive income . After you create the course, you can sell it to many people. You only need to update the course from time to time to keep it up to date.

You can create and sell online courses and training completely from home.

This is also the case when creating and selling an e-book. If you have a pleasant writing style, you can start selling all kinds of interesting e-books.

These e-books can be informative, but can also be inspiring or, for example, a biography about your own life.

You can really go in any direction, as long as you choose a unique subject. After all, in the world of e-books you also have to deal with a lot of competition.


Many online stores have been launched in recent years. It is also possible for you to start a webshop, if you have an interesting product to offer.

With a webshop you can actually go in all directions, while you do not run too many risks.

For example, you don’t have to rent expensive business premises and you can also perfect stock management.

When starting a webshop you have to take into account different aspects.

For example, you should think carefully about the shipping and return of the products. What shipping costs do you use? How will you ship the packages? And which return conditions will you use?

Nowadays, consumers are increasingly critical and therefore look very carefully at these conditions.

It is up to you to strike a healthy balance between risks and rewards.

I advise you to start a webshop with products that you are passionate about.

After all, you can sell such products enthusiastically, since you yourself are enthusiastic about the product.

You are also able to write good product texts, which means you can save even more money.

Starting a webshop does not require too much starting capital, but you do have to take into account the investment in a good webshop.

Dare to invest in this, since you will hopefully earn that money back twice and thick.

It is better to do this right the first time instead of having to have your webshop replaced after some time.


Does it sound like music to your ears to start selling products? However, do you not want to deal with shipments and returns of the products?

Then I recommend that you take a look at dropshipping.

With dropshipping you sell the products, after which an external party sends the products and handles the returns. This external party therefore also takes care of the stock management and therefore absorbs several risks for you.

Dropshipping definitely brings some significant benefits.

It is therefore very nice that you do not have to send products yourself. That saves you a lot of time.

Also, you don’t have to worry about returns. This is also handled by the external party. The only drawback is of course that you will not earn money, but you do not have to spend time and effort on the returns yourself.

This is a very interesting opportunity for many online entrepreneurs. You only need to have a webshop and a collaboration with an external party.

By setting up this webshop in a smart way, orders are forwarded directly to the external party.

This means you don’t really have to worry about the webshop yourself. All you have to do is continuously optimize the website.

This puts the website higher in Google and you can start to welcome more visitors.

The more visitors to your website, the greater the chance of orders. With all webshops, and therefore also with dropshipping, everything ultimately revolves around the number of visitors.

So optimize your website non-stop, so that you attract more and more visitors.


Do you have a lot of knowledge of search engine optimization? Can you program certain things? Or can you completely build a website from A to Z and immediately ensure a high ranking in Google?

If you can offer a good service, it also gives many opportunities to earn money from home.

You can rent out to companies, so you can send a monthly invoice. This way you can work wonderfully from home, while you can optimally use your qualities.

When starting up an online marketing agency, you can choose from all kinds of possible services.

You can focus on search engine optimization, social media marketing or email marketing.

Online marketing has received all kinds of variants over the years, so that you can offer a very interesting package of services.

The advantage of starting an online marketing agency?

You can keep the start-up costs relatively low. After all, you can put together a website yourself and then search for customers in a targeted manner.

There are also many options for this on the internet.

You will then be able to expand your business further and further, while you can enjoy it from home.


Do you enjoy writing quality and unique texts?

Or are you very handy with computer programs that allow you to create beautiful illustrations and the like?

In the digital world, valuable content is in high demand. This content is crucial to being successful on the internet.

For example, if you are going to work with affiliate marketing or with your own webshop, the content is very important.

Larger companies also need new content every day, so you can earn quite a lot of money with this.

An additional advantage is that you only need a laptop and an internet connection for this, which makes it a good earning model for earning money at home.

Within the denominator ‘creating content’ there are again all kinds of different variants.

For example, you can focus on writing optimized texts. These web texts, blogs, product texts or affiliate texts are optimized for the visitor and for Google.

Website owners are willing to spend a relatively large amount of money on this, as it saves them time and allows them to focus on further expanding their online business.

Another way to make money is by developing graphical content.

Think of designing logos, folders, brochures or illustrations.

Basically everything you come across on the internet was created by someone at some point. As a result, you can imagine that there is a decent market for this.

Yet another option is to get started with videos.

If you can edit videos in a professional and fun way , you can help many companies.

More and more companies are realizing that videos have absolute added value.


Partly because moving images say much more than words. With moving images you can promote excellent products or services, while you can also make informative videos.

For professional video creators, there are more and more opportunities to earn money from home.

Do you want to get started creating content?

Then you enjoy absolutely many possibilities, but you also have to take into account considerable competition.

If you deliver quality and stick to the agreements, you can at least make many customers/companies happy.

In the meantime, you can work wonderfully from your own home without too many risks. After all, you don’t need too much start-up capital for such a company.


Thanks to the rise of social media channels, new professions have also emerged.

Its most famous profession is undoubtedly influencer.

Persons such as Enzo Knol, Monica Geuze and Nienke Plas are typical examples of this. They film their lives every day, make videos and put those videos on YouTube.

There are surprisingly many people who enjoy watching this.

However, making videos is not the only possibility to become an influencer / to be active as an influencer.

Even if you have a lot of followers on Instagram, for example, you are interesting for companies.

If you are interesting for companies, you can quickly become an influencer.

You post certain messages on behalf of the company, in which you, for example, offer a product or service of the company.

This allows all your followers to become acquainted with the product/service, so that the company works on its brand awareness. In exchange for such a message you will receive a certain amount.

Do you have an interesting life? For example, do you have a unique hobby? Or do you have a lot of followers on Instagram or Facebook?

Then you can also get started as an influencer.

You also have to take into account the necessary competition. In addition, you have to make yourself interesting for companies.

So you need a large YouTube channel, an Instagram account with many followers or a popular Facebook account.


In recent years, more and more people have become active as Virtual Assistants .

As a VA, the abbreviation of Virtual Assistant, you help companies or entrepreneurs remotely. For example, you provide customer service, you help entrepreneurs with all kinds of chores or you manage the agenda of (busy) entrepreneurs.

The nice thing about Virtual Assistant is that no day is the same. Especially if you have several customers, the work is very diverse.

To get started as a Virtual Assistant, you have to generate trust among customers.

It is not just that a company/entrepreneur will share his/her agenda with you. That is only done if you have proven that you have qualities, that you are reliable and that you are precise.

A deal is a deal is definitely a saying that holds true for a Virtual Assistant.

The absolute advantage of this is that you need little to no starting capital.

You really only need a laptop and a working internet connection.

You also have to work on your brand awareness, of course, but there are plenty of cheap/free options for that.


This article lists quite a few possibilities with which you can earn money from home.

Which option appeals to you the most?

The great thing about many of these options is that you hardly need any starting capital. In the meantime, you can start earning a lot of money, while you enjoy working from your own home.

An additional advantage is that you can also combine the options.

For example, you can help other companies with social media, while you also manage one or more affiliate websites yourself.

By combining several of the above options, you can definitely earn a nice monthly salary.

Even if you are a successful influencer, you can earn quite a lot of money per month.

However, remember that you will never become successful on your own.

You have to invest time and effort to start making money from home.

Earning money is fun, but it becomes even more fun if you can do it in a relaxed way.

That is absolutely the case if you can work from your own home, organize your time yourself and decide for yourself what you are going to do. Good luck & have fun!
