You can find sites such as skill share or many others to develop and sell courses online to these companies. Not only would you be making money, but also toning your professional skills. You could also try coaching through Skype, which is becoming somewhat of a replacement for tutoring, as it is more convenient and easier to do.

You can advertise any of these offers or courses through any means of social media, depending on your following.
Youtube partnership program.
If you are a youtuber, with a somewhat large following and you want to start making a little more extra money, try joining the youtube partner program. Youtube is one of the easiest ways to make money online through social media, that is of course if you have a following to support you. You essentially run youtube advertisements, and every time an ad is run, you get a portion of revenue. Though it is important that if you decide to do this, you must stick to the youtube monetization guidelines and keep up to date with them if you want to make an adequate amount of money. There are many popular youtube content creators who have made an exceptionally large amount of money, and many more who have even made youtube a full-time job.
