If you’re like most people today, you’re probably wondering just how you can go about finding ways to make money online – either to save up for that special something that you’ve had your eye on or to just help pay the bills. Either way, there are so many great ways to make money online these days and not all of them include doing some heavy duty work, either! Here are some of our favourite ways to make money, some of which could even translate into a new career for you!
Become An Online Marketer
Online marketing is a great way to make money online and at home – either full time or in your spare time. Working on things like SEO for businesses of all kinds and sizes, providing SEO based and quality content for their web pages is just one way that many people are making money easily from the comfort of the couch. Not only that, but if you have a knack for web development, you can provide those services in conjunction so that you can provide great package deals for even more money!
Have marketable skill, will travel. Just kidding – unless you want to! Marketable skills are a great commodity these days and can be almost anything from web design like we mentioned, content writing, graphic design, music production and more. Freelancing through sites like Fiverr, Elance, Upwork, People Per Hour and others provide people just like you the opportunity to work for themselves – part or full time. While it’s advisable to start small and build a client base, many people soon find they have enough clients and enough regular work to make it their full time gig. So what can you offer to make your dreams of working from home a reality?
Selling Stuff You Don’t Need
When it comes to cleaning out the house for spring, selling stuff you no longer need is a novel idea. Some websites like eBay are great resources for offloading things that are just laying around the house collecting dust, be it old clothes, electronics, videos, CDs or jewelry that you no longer want. Other sites in the UK such as Music Magpie are great as well to help provide you with an opportunity to unload old things for cold hard cash.
So whatever your reasons for needing a bit of extra money on the side – be it for holidays, birthdays, Christmas or just because, selling old items, working online and freelancing are all really cool, simple ways you can start making money this week. Which will you pick? We’d love to hear from you in the comments!
