The other ones are affiliated marking and direct advertisement by companies. The Google Adsense program is the best way to making some recurrent money online through blogging.
Making money through Facebook
Facebook is a new way that one can easily use to make money on the internet. Facebook has now grown from being a social media to a city where everyone lives. Facebook is now the best place for advertisers and marketers. With its wide range of coverage, many people are now using it to make millions of dollars every day. As a student, you can create a Facebook fan page and invite many of your friends to like the page. Once you get more than 1000 likes on your fan page, you can sell it to anyone who wants to buy. Many bloggers and social marketers look for such page to buy everyday. So if you are smart enough; you can create many of the pages and invite all your friends to like the page. Once you see that your page like is now up to the requirement of the person who wants to buy, then you can go ahead to sell it to the person.
The final way you can earn money on the internet as a student is by creating a YouTube channel. We always go to YouTube to watch movies and other form of videos without knowing that we are creating money to some people. Many of my friends always wonder how the owners of those movies on YouTube get money. Hmm, let me tell you this, as YouTube publisher that’s someone who uploads a video on YouTube, you get paid by Google (sole owners) for every click on the ads that are displayed on the video. Is this not wonderful? If you are a student and you are good in video creation, you can create any kind of video and upload them on YouTube.
