There are lots of ways people can make money, and the middleman method is quite possibly the easiest one. You don’t need to do any of the actual work yourself and it doesn’t require many skills. You don’t need lots of funds and you can start immediately.
The first step is to find work in a particular niche. You then find someone else such as a freelancer or another company to complete the work and take a slice of the profits for yourself. You are the middleman who connects the two parties – one who needs a job doing and another who can complete the task.
There are many different areas that you can do this in, and it doesn’t necessarily need to be online, even though this is arguably the most common way. People do it all the time, even in trades such as plumbing, groundwork and other labouring jobs. A business will be hired for a job and they will then outsource the work. As long as you work out the costs correctly or get a fixed price for the job, you can always make a profit. See below for two examples, one online and one offline:
