Answer paid surveys
Many companies are now running paid surveys, which can be completed online. You can take part in these by signing up to a site such as Swagbucks.com. You’ll likely only earn a few dollars completing surveys, however some are more well paid than others. Usually, the most high paying surveys require you to have knowledge of a niche field and they may be longer and more detailed.
Sell unwanted possessions
You can also make money by selling unwanted possessions you no longer need online. There are so many platforms for doing this – Amazon and eBay can allow you to sell your used belongings to people around the world, while the likes of Craigslist and Facebook are excellent for selling locally (saving you money on shipping). By advertising on lots of different platforms, including Facebook playable ads, you can increase your chances of making a quick sale. Make sure to be honest about the condition – supplying plenty of photos and information will encourage people’s trust and attract more people to your items.
Sell your talents
Got a talent that you can charge money for? The likes of Fiverr.com allow you to make a quick buck by lending digital skills to people such as web design, photoshopping, video editing, accounting, press release writing or email marketing. You can build up a star rating over time that makes you more credible, allowing you to get away with charging more for your services.
Get paid for reviews
There are many ways to get paid simply by giving reviews. If you own a blog or a vlog, you may be able to use this platform to review products and services for cash – you’ll find many companies offering to pay for reviews online. It’s also possible to review indie games, albums and websites for money. You’ll find adverts for these paid reviews on sites such as Paid2Review.com.
Try online gambling
There’s no certainty in online gambling, however if you get lucky you could make some extra money. Sites like CasinoSeniors.com offer advice on online gambling and the best platforms to use – popular examples include matched betting, online poker, online slots and roulette. There are tricks out there that involve taking advantage of free bets, allowing you to potentially make money while spending very little. Just remember to keep a gambling budget – only bet what you can afford to lose.
