There are hundreds, even thousands of ways to earn extra money. Believe it or not, but at this moment millions of people in the world are doing some extra work in order to earn some extra money.
Today, almost everything is online, so the workforce and the pursuit of the same moves on the Internet. Therefore, today it is easier than ever to find a way to make money from the comfort of your own armchair.
A large part of the population still believes that the earnings on the Internet is a scam. But in the last decade, there has been a shape-up of a huge number of people who live more than comfortably thanks to the work on the Internet. And I don’t even have to talk about the freelance scene that blossoms.
Is the work from home, actually the easiest way to make money?
My opinion is that it is not so. Working from the comfort of your armchair, usually does not require any physical activity, but it burdens the brain in a way that it requires creativity and the work of brain cells from the worker.
As the number of such activities is growing, the demand for workers who work from home is growing to. This trend will surely continue in the future, and people will be more and more able to make extra money from home.
I have mentioned at the beginning, that there are different ways to earn extra money. But not all ways are the same, and not all will take away the same amount of time. Some of the jobs you’ll finish faster, but some will take more time to finish. Some will make you use your creative side, while others are going to be so terribly boring. It’is up to to you to choose what you are interested in and attracted to.
How to make extra money fast?
Quick profit which is promoted by various sites is possible, but not everything is so ideal as they are telling you it would be. A large part of these processes, systems, cycles or whatever is actually one big trap.
Those who are at the top of the system collect a lot of money. Unfortunately, those who are just starting, have to cross many miles, to start making some decent money. That’s how it goes in life, you need to sow in order to reap.
With a little luck and a lot of knowledge, it is however possible to earn a decent money in a very short time. Internet communities are becoming smarter and smarter in general, thanks to the ‘gurus’ who led them. Those are the people who have found the ways to reach the target profit by a shortcut.
These gurus have invested years of their experience and thousands of attempt-failure-guess methods in the development of their ideas. Nowadays, they give these ideas for free or for a very small fee in the most cases.
One of the best when it comes to business on the Internet is Daniel DiPiazza , who is behind the project Rich20Something. He observed the behavior and the reactions of the people who earn the most by doing freelance jobs, and he drew some quality conclusions from that. Based on these conclusion, he developed a method of working on freelance portals through which he earned 24,000 dollars in just four weeks.
There’s still a bunch of bloggers and entrepreneurs who can show by concrete examples, how it is possible to make a great profit, also by working from the comfort of home.
As an example, I’ll mention my colleague blogger Michelle, who has a blog Making Sense of Cents. She issues monthly reports of her earnings, to show others that it is possible to make profit by running a blog. Last month, she earned huge 49,607 dollars, by working on the Internet, in other words, by running her blog. What else is there to say, but to congratulate her on this enviable result.
Now, let’s go back to the main them of this post, in other words ways to earn extra money.
In continuation, there’s a list of ways to earn extra money, that you should definitely go through. You might like a certain idea,so you’ll decide to make a profit out of it.
Sell your sentences
The first in a series of ways to earn extra money, is the one that I’m doing right now. I’m writing sentences and transmitting my knowledge to others. The difference between you and me is that I’m doing it for free, and you can and have to charge your words.
There are a lot of portals and freelance sites on the internet, which yearn for quality writers. Information are a very important issue nowadays, in all spheres of life, so the demand for authors is bigger and bigger.
I’m not sure how familiar you are with freelance platforms, but these are some of the most famous, on which you can find a job as an author:
The above list contains several services, which will be mentioned in the sequel. The last two items on the list are intended exclusively for writers, in other words, people whose tool are words.
Here, I must also mention the man I’m following on the social networks and who is a great inspiration for my work. His name is Darren Rowse, who owns one of the best blogs on tips for bloggers. One part of the section on its website is intended for job seeking writers only. So, if you want to work as a blogger, you can look at job offers here.
Each of us is an expert in a certain area. No matter what type of person you are, and do you have confidence in yourself or not, I’m sure that you are magnificent at some skill . Maybe it’s geography, maybe you know all about fitness, maybe you’re good at writing short stories, or you are good at working with small children, etc.
Each of us, no matter the type of person he/she is, already owns a skill that can bring him/her millions of dollars.
The problem is, that we do not know how to transform our skills into something we could make a good money of. The problem is not the knowledge that we have, but the way in which we can share this knowledge with others.
But, not to philosophize anymore, this is one of the better ways to earn extra money:
There is a certain kind of supply and demand on the market. Maybe you have not thought about it, but there is a market of knowledge, where there’s also the law of supply and demand. All you have to do is find your great skill, and then transmit the knowledge you possess to others.
There is a great number of portals and services that offer tutoring. Such online services are constantly yearning for new ‘teachers’ that can transmit their knowledge from different areas to others. Join to one of such services and start sharing your knowledge for a financial compensation.
Fill in the surveys and make money
Frankly, I think that this is not one of the top jobs because the profit is not high. However, it deserves a place on my list of ways to earn extra money. Why? Here’s the answer.
The fulfillment of the surveys is an activity that can be done very quickly, and you can start doing it immediately. So when we talk about the speed of the execution this work is one of the best, in other words, it takes the least time.
There are many services that offer earnings by simply fulfilling surveys. It is not a great profit, but the good thing is that you can pay off the earned money very quickly.
Make reviews of applications and websites
I can easily say that today’s world has become dependent on apps. We use only a few apps on our smartphones on a daily basis, while the market is teeming with a large number of new ones. The entire system is based in a way that only the big players with a well done marketing are gaining popularity and later reap profits from it.
In order to reach the first position on the applications charts, it is necessary to have a large number of downloads and quality reviews. Therefore, many of the creators of applications are ready to pay a considerable amount of money, so users would simply download and evaluate their application.
It is worth some surfing on the internet, in order to find places where you can make money by evaluating applications. As the market grows, the offer of these jobs is increasing. It’s not like you’ll make a big profit out of it, but it would be quite god to earn some money quickly.
With small errands to high profit
Have you ever ever heard of Fiverr? It is a service where it is possible to offer the working off of small errands for $5. So, if you possess a skill of working on the computer, then you can offer that service of yours on Fiverr.
Fiverr is actually a certain kind of market where the supply meets the demand. You’re offering something and the others are asking for something. If that’s so, you can be happy because you got clients.
The competition on Fiverr is huge, but that’s exactly your chance to shine. Since due to of the large number of suppliers, there are also many of those who buy something, your chances of making money are good.
What’s important is to offer a service that is unique and creative to the customers. When you stand out with your offer, it will be a lot easier for you ti get new clients.
Another important note. Fiverr is not a place where the work gets done for $5 only. There are also options where you can expand your basic service by adding some additional features, so you can charge all of this much more.
Web design and programming as a ‘golden geese’
I do not have to froth too much about how programming is one of the jobs of the future. The whole world is now reduced to applications and services, so the demand for programmers is higher than ever before.
If you know a programming language or you are very adept at designing on the computer, it is a very good opportunity for you. By programming or designing as a freelancer, you can earn a really large amount of money. Do you remember Daniel DiPiazza from the beginning of this article? He’s actually one of the best examples of how to make money as a programmer on freelance sites. Just to remind you, Daniel DiPiazza earned $24,000 in only 4 weeks, by programming sites on the WordPress platform.
If this sounds appealing, then you should definitely check out the following services:
All of he above mentioned places are swarming with the demand for developers and designers. Sign up for one or more platforms, find out which tactic is used by Daniel DiPiazza and earn some very decent money.
Work on social networks
Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Snapchat, Google+, and I could go on like this for ages.
Social networks are now a hit hobby for a large part of the population. Where there’s crowd, there are also a large amounts of money in question.
Many companies today want to be online and want to be noticed by the people who surf the Internet. But with owning a website, companies nowadays also need to be present on social networks. Exactly this is another one of many ways to earn extra money.
The head of the Social media, is a job that didn’t even exist about 10 years ago. However, as we go further into the future technological world, this profession becomes increasingly important.
To make a long story short, the work is based on the fact that you work as a person who will maintain the company’s profile on social networks. For example, my company wants to publish 5 posts on Facebook related to my business on a daily basis. But, I don’t have the time or the will to do it, so I hire you to put 5 posts on some of the social networks on a daily basis.
The job is very simple, very well paid, and fun. The only thing you should pay attention to, is not to say something wrong, and by doing that get the company in trouble due to erroneous media propaganda. This is the perfect solution for those who already spend all day hanging on social networks.
Sell the fruits of your hobby
Each of us has (or should have) some kind of hobby. It is a perfect activity that relaxes us, gives us a certain energy and forces us to be creative. Do you know that you can turn your hobby into profit very quickly?
Regardless of what kind of hobby it is, trust me, there are people in the world, who are also interested in the same area as you. Some people are willing to allocate large sums of money for a variety of creative and sometimes nonsensical ideas. Not to say that your hobby is strange, but if it is, that’s not a reason not to try to turn it into profit.
You can turn the fruits of your hobby into profit in many places around the internet. For example, you can offer some of the things you make on eBay or similar auction sites. If your hobby is more of a creative and intangible nature, then google it, and you’ll surely find a place where you can sell what you do.
The creative ones, and the little less creative ones, all of them now have the opportunity to earn some additional money. The above listed ways to earn extra money, have somehow seemed like the most desirable in the category of quick profits to me.
All the ideas that I wrote are actually based on the fact that, with them you can start earning immediately, with the current level of knowledge, and with little effort invested. The amount of earned money depends on the effort invested, because the competition never sleeps.
In this post I have also named some of the bloggers who earn really big amounts of money by conveying their creative ideas to their audience. Here, I didn’t write about the blogging business as one of the higher quality ways to earn extra money, because it actually falls into the category of longer-lasting jobs. It takes a lot of effort and time in order to get to the levels at which the above mentioned bloggers are.
Nevertheless, you’ve gotten a few ways to earn extra money. Now the question is how well will you know to take advantage of my advice. If you go with one of the ideas, I’m sure you will earn some money in a very short time. It may not be a lot at the beginning, but don’t forget that reputation works wonders.
When you work off several tasks, and when customers turn out to be satisfied, they will start spreading a positive word about you. It will be an opportunity to attract new customers and to enter into a very successful business with them.
There’s no limit, it all depends on the invested effort and the hours worked off.
