How to Make Money with Your Laptop? — 12 Comments

  1. Hello John, I really enjoyed reading your article about Making Money with your Laptop. You have outlined a great range of opportunities for making money online and you leave your reader in no doubt that these opportunities can be quite fruitful. I must admit to having been scammed in the past with one of those DFY (done-for-you) programs, so I was highly relieved to see that you did not mention any of those as possibilities. Thanks for sharing your ideas for making money with your laptop.

    • Thanks very much for taking the time to write a comment Jenni. I see that you are also a great traveler as we are. Indeed, as international house and pet sitters, my wife and myself have traveled the world. I have been an affiliate marketer for the past 20+ years, first on an old desktop that was so slow that I called it my washing machine. Now with my laptop which enable us to travel in luxury while making a living, see my BIO

      As you can imagine, I have been scammed many times over and to tell you the truth, when it comes to “done-for-you”, or “turn-key” business opportunity, I do a lot of research before jumping into it. There are not many of them that are not scams, but there are some serious ones like the CBproAds affiliate program which I have been using for quite a while as an extra income stream (among several others), so this one can be trusted.

      I wish you the very best for your online projects Jenni and I look forward to seeing you around.

      John 😊

  2. There are several ways to make money online using your laptop. This is not a get rich quick opportunity, if you have the extra time and you are determined then your laptop is a good tool to work. Your article is on point, we accumulate a lot of things, we can get rid of some we no longer desire and earn revenue.

    • Thanks for sharing your views Diana. I am sure that you know a few of the ways that one can make money with their laptop so I wish the very best for your online projects.

      Take care,

      John 😊

  3. Hi John, thanks so much, this is a very useful article full of great ideas and easy to follow. I tried a few of these in the past but also good to pick up some new ideas – especially from someone who seems to be ‘practicing what they preach’, as the saying goes. I can vouch for Wealthy Affiliate being a very good platform for those who are interested in blogging and affiliate marketing – a very good resource. I have another idea to add if I may – there are now websites where you can earn money by doing transcriptions and captioning video content. The rates vary but it’s flexible work which you can easily do from a laptop – potentially from anywhere in the world. Thanks again for this great post – I will bookmark the site and check out some more articles…

    • Thanks very much for your comments and for sharing another money making opportunity that my readers might like to investigate Will, or aren’t you referring to Fiverr? Which is also  great money making platform.

      I wish you the very best for your online undertakings.

      John 😊

  4. I am over whelmed with all the possibilities given as I begin to read your material, Where should I start? I have no money to invest and have always thought you must have money in order to make money. Ok, I have settled down enough and will begin to think logically. I have found that selling things on the internet or a garage sale is often hard and takes much effort to make the sales needed. Let’s say realistically, I can earn $400 maximum. Then I could leverage this somehow. Hey maybe I could take some pictures and earn money but not with my cheap camera. Now I must invest this money into a better digital camera as it is suited for many needed features. As it is digital, I can download them to my computer and upload them to a site to display these images so that I can get sales. You can probably recommend such a site. From this I can generate some money with modest quality shots until I can invest into a high quality camera with many features. Lastly, I invest in Wealthy Affiliate and start building a website knowing that this will take time and resources but offers incredible opportunity for wealth creation. Wow, how is this for a plan of action? 

    • Thanks very much for sharing your experience and what you are doing to try to earn some money with your laptop. Indeed, Wealthy Affiliate is probably the best I have come across during my 20+ years of marketing online, but as you say “you must have money in order to make money”, there are some cheaper money making opportunities that doesn’t require much work, such as the CBproAds affiliate program , or Fiverr if you wish to sell your photographic expertise.

      I hope that you find what you need and I wish you the very best for your online ventures.

      John 😊

  5. I always wanted to make money with my laptop, but there is so much online that I have always wondered which online jobs are legit or which ones are not. So I am happy to finally read an article that sums everything up. And these are not scams, right? Also, do you think it is easy to setup an online course if you are not a writer? Thanks!

    • Thanks for your comment and questions Lizzy. One thing that you can be sure of is that whenever I recommend a money making opportunity I have tested it and it is definitely not a scam, otherwise it will be labelled as scam and will be listed in the “Avoid” tab of my website Easy To Retire.

      I have set up several online courses myself. It requires quite a bit of experience, a deep knowledge of the product or service that you want to talk about and a lot of work. But if you want it to be done for you, it is quite worth it. Here is a course writer that I have used in the past and she does an excellent job: Emma

      I wish you the very best for your online projects Lizzy.

      Take care, stay safe, healthy and wealthy,

      John 😊

  6. Hi John,

    This article was a wonderful read on making money from a laptop (or desktop). From my experience, I know it takes time and effort to make money from a computer and stable internet connection. It may sound easy to do, but it’s not.

    What I liked about this post was all of these methods are legit. They have great potential for people to earn a living.

    Out of the list, my favorite ones are blogging and auctioning stuff from my house. I have stuff laying around that I do not need, so I usually list them on multiple selling apps (for example, Mercari is a great app for local selling).

    Of course, I think blogging (writing articles) is my biggest strength. It takes time and hard work, but it’s well worth it in the long run. The potential to earn lots of commissions is very good.

    Overall, these are excellent tips for making money from a computer. Thank you for sharing and helping others on this topic.

    • Thanks very much for commenting on my latest tutorial and for sharing your experience Eric. I am pleased to know that you found it interesting and useful.

      I wish you the very best for your money making undertakings and I look forward to seeing you again on this website soon.

      Take care, stay safe, healthy and wealthy,

      John 😊
