Best subreddits you can join to learn how to make money online:

Reddit is a social forum website. It is also a good resource to find extra work and learn from other people’s experiences. Subreddits are small groups in Reddit dedicated to a specific topic. You can use reddit.com/r/subreddit-name in your browser to open a subreddit.

Subreddits are free to join and anyone with a valid Reddit account can join. There are many subreddits dedicated to making money online, online jobs, passive income, etc.

It is a great place to find freelance jobs and to learn from other people’s experiences. In this post, I am listing down a few popular subreddits where you can find jobs, passive income ideas, other people’s progress reports, etc.

/r/juststart:

This one is my favorite and I check it almost regularly. This community is focused on affiliate marketing, mostly on amazon affiliate marketing. You will learn from other people’s experiences.

This subreddit is not for beginners and don’t put any beginner level questions like ‘how to start a blog’ or ‘how to earn money from a blog’. People are helpful there and the progress reports are also useful to learn different techniques on building a site.

/r/WorkOnline:

This subreddit is mostly on different online works where you can perform different tasks for money. It includes discussions on making money from your website, making money from surveys, mobile apps, freelancing tasks, etc.

Overall, if you have some extra time that you can spend on a second job, then you can join this subreddit. The comments are useful. You will find good quality resources in the comments.

You can offer your service by writing a post in this subreddit and someone may hire you or you can apply for the jobs already posted here. It is a community with more than 200k+ users. You will not earn a lot. But you can join this subreddit if you want to make a little extra money on the side.

/r/forhire:

This is a great subreddit to look for freelance jobs if you are skilled at something. If you are good at anything like article writing, graphics designing, video editing, etc, you can subscribe to this subreddit.

All posts in this subreddit start with either [For Hire] or [Hiring]. This makes it easy to search for posts those are hiring or looking for jobs.

/r/mturk:

Amazon mTurk is a website for microtasks. This community is on mTurk and it will keep you updated on different mTurk related news like how much people are making, what type of tasks are more valuable, new changes in mTurk, etc.

/r/passive_income:

This is a huge community with more than 100k members. This community is on passive income. This community is on making a passive income stream. Passive income can be generated in different ways. It can be a blog, stock, real estate, etc. Passive income takes time, but it is always a good idea to start something on the side that will give you a return passively.

/r/financialindependence:

This community is for anyone who wants a early retirement. You will learn different ways people are using to maximize their saving rate and becoming financially independent. This is a sub with more than 800k members. You will find different discussions or hacks to maximize your saving in this sub.

Conclusion:

I have listed down a couple of subreddits that you can check to learn different ways people are making money online. Before I started my online venture, I always thought that making money online websites are full of scams. That is not completely false. There are many fake websites and fake ‘Gurus’ who are trying to sell you their courses. Never pay anyone to learn how to make money or how to start blogging or how to start freelancing. Just start. There are so many free resources and if you go throw the Reddit post comments, you might find jewels. You will most probably fail and if you are like me, you will fail multiple times before hitting your first dollar. But, you will learn a lot of things that can’t be learned in any other way.
