A few ways to make some money out of your online activity

Its a question asked and answered many times on the web. We thought of forming a small list of ways you can make money online so to help newbies on the web direct themselves on what they can do to turn their online presence into profit, not much profit at the beginning, but surely a good promise for more and more money when the content and the concept are hot and accepted by the internet community.



Establish a blog, write great content, publish ads via Google AdSense or Affiliate Banners

This is a way to create revenue from a blog / website you create in which you post interesting content. "Interesting content" is a term that can start a long conversation on what is "interesting", how often to post, what is considered "hot", search engines and much much more. What is the general idea here is to create content ( meaning not only articles but content in general ) that will appeal to more and more online users and keep you current fans close. Then and when at the same time you will be increasing your traffic and daily visits, you can add Google AdSense to that blog of yours so you can turn clicks on those Google Ads to a small profit. With AdSense you will not get too much money but with high numbers of visits per day, your revenue can be significant. Also you need to pay attention to the terms of use of AdSense as some mistakes can lead to permanent ban from the service.

Another way to go with ads on your site or blog is with affiliate banners. There are networks that you can join and select affiliate banners to put on your blog or site which will pay you back for either impressions or lead creations. Common networks with affiliate banners are free to join and can generate some amount of profit.

Create a youtube channel and monetize it

If you have inspiration on creating videos and talking about stuff regularly, then you can upload your videos on YouTube and monetize your channel ( YT provides a specific option for this ) in order to be paid for views on your videos. This works as AdSense items are loaded during video playback, for which you get a commission from YT depending on the publishers that created the AdWords that are shown in your videos as AdSense. Again, not too much money is to come back to you, but surely if your videos are nice, fancy and interesting and you get views, then you will receive money out of nowhere so its nice. Again, the more the traffic, the more the money.

Join freelance job boards

If you are willing to find open projects and bid for them, the you can join communities and boards like freelancer.com or guru.com and fill in your profile, then find open jobs and projects on which you can bid your price. You start small but the more projects you complete, the hotter you become and thus more and more bids you do will turn into projects for which you will be paid the amount of money you requested in your bidding process. In those sites ( and more like them ) there are literally thousands of open tasks all around the world, for which you can bid. Make sure you know what you are bidding on as there are rules on those sites which you cannot ignore or you will get in trouble.

Create your art and sell it online

There are sites like deviantArt, flicker, istockphoto, shutterstock and much much more which sell digital goods and small "items". For instance, if you are great in photography, then you can sell those photos online and get paid. If you know how to i.e. create icons, you can sell those too. In general, if you know something digital that people need, you can find a website that can sell this online.

Write an e-book or i-book if you can't publish a book 

If you are the writer type and you have a book on the works, then you need not worry about how to publish it in hard copies. There are problems sometimes in publishing a book in printed copies but you can come over those on the web. You can make your book an e-book and sell it on Amazon for their Kindle platform. Also you can create your book in a Mac and then publish it in Apple's iBooks and sell it there. Of course for both you will need to follow a process to enter those services but its not that hard after all. Keep in mind that both those platforms have tens of millions of users and you then get a great possibility to sell your book online.

There is always more

Of course there are other ways too, a lot of ways and maybe a combination of the above, a subset of the services and ways above that can be part of a general business logic you can think of. Internet can give you a lot of ways to get money and the success of such process is mainly based on how much your audience accepts your product / service or you. So if you have something that people will like, need or love, then go ahead and see how fast and effectively this market works.

Enable AMD's Radeon Chill feature for all games.

Since 2014 AMD has been following the tradition of releasing new performance and usability features in their December driver, and 2016 was no exception. Among the myriad of new features and enhancements, was also one that passed almost unnoticed, called Radeon Chill.

Stemming from AMD's acquisition of HiAlgo earlier in 2016, it offers the possibility of huge power and thermal savings while gaming, by monitoring screen movement and adjusting the frame rate accordingly. There is even the claim that it could also reduce response times since the GPU is not occupied with rendering as often.

Its only issue: it's not global, and it's based on a white list of applications to function. But fear not, for we are here. Using a trick as old as operating systems themselves, you can try to make it work with every title. Let's see how to do that.
Step One: Activate Radeon Chill. Doing that is fairly easy. Right click on your desktop and select "Radeon Settings":
