Strategies to Make Money Online in Spain

Spain boasts stunning scenery, delicious food, and easy-going culture. Yet, it has been hit hard by the global recession. Despite the recent economic hit, Spain has many thriving businesses. Those with technological, creative, and entrepreneurial skills are maximizing their income streams through online platforms. So, if you want to join their ranks, here are some simple strategies on how to make money online in Spain.


1. Affiliate Marketing

By now, you might have heard about affiliate marketing. Many people use this method to make money online. If you’re good at marketing, then it is your best shot. Affiliate marketing pays in commission for every product or service promoted. To succeed as an affiliate marketer, you’ll have to find products or services in a niche you can promote. Meaning what you offer must be relevant to your audience, whether from fashion and electronics to cloud web services.

After identifying your niche, you must create engaging and informative content to attract people. You earn whenever a person clicks and purchases the products or services through your link. You can also generate sales through paid search engine marketing, display advertising, social media marketing, organic search engine optimization, and email marketing.


2. Participate in Online Surveys

Online surveys are the simplest ways to generate income from the comfort of your home. Sites such as Pawns.app pay people to participate in surveys. So why choose this method to make money? Millions of products hit the street daily, and companies need to find out why consumers like or do not like their products. Surveys help companies make sound decisions about their products or services by providing insight into their customers.

While working on a legit survey site, you can earn between $0.25 to $5 per survey. The money you make per survey varies depending on the length, offer, and type of survey. To begin working with survey sites, you must register with basic details such as email and password. Most of these sites pay once you meet the minimum threshold.


3. Become a Content Creator (Blogging and/or YouTube)

If you have technological skills, this is the online money-making stream you can count on. So, how will you make money online in Spain through blogging? Here is a quick summary to be successful.

First, find a niche and design your blog. A niche can be anything, but in this case, it will be the main topic for your blog. Then, do keyword research and create content around it to reach your target audience and increase traffic. For every content you create, ensure to include videos and images.

When your content starts receiving a good number of viewers daily, you can start monetizing your blog to earn. Monetize it by adding affiliate links to your content or selling advertising space (ads). You can do the same for your YouTube channel. Once you’ve launched your channel, share video scripts about your products or services. Then monetize your channel after you’ve gained loyal subscribers. YouTube pays once you reach 1,000 subscribers.


4. Start a Dropshipping Business

This strategy is also an effective and reliable way to make money online in Spain. But what is dropshipping? Dropshipping is all about setting up an online store and partnering with trustworthy and reliable suppliers to ship products directly to customers. Here are some things you should know about it. You’ll have to:

  • Set up an online payment option to enable customers to pay for their orders.
  • Provide customer support through phone calls, email, or live chat.
  • Partner with a reliable supplier if you want your business to flourish, as this will ensure customers receive their goods on time.

Another thing about dropshipping is that you don’t have to worry about shipping or the whole customer buying process, as your aim is to market the supplier’s products and get new customers. So how will you earn from dropshipping? Whenever you sell a supplier’s product, you set your retail price. When a customer purchases through your link, you’ll pay the suppliers at their wholesale prices and keep the remaining amount as profit.


Final thoughts

Even with these various income-making streams, making money online requires patience, time, and effort. Though the listed money-making strategies are simple, generating income may take some time. Lastly, ensure you follow all the legal requirements for doing business online in Spain.
