The spread of technology in almost all aspects of our society has dramatically changed our way of life, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse.
The Internet is the ideal example of this reality, as it is a vast “place”, which hides many dangers and has greatly alienated life and human relationships.
At the same time, however, it offers countless advantages and hides unlimited opportunities, even for making extra money online. Although nowadays it is not as easy as it was to make money on the Internet, there are still a lot of methods – and they will continue to exist – as long as one searches for them.
All it takes is motivation, passion, and ideally some specialization, or just to know what you are good at and make sure you make the most of it. Of course in some cases, you don’t even need to be specialized in something in order to start earning money online.
Let’s see 20+1 Ways To Earn Extra Cash Online, or even – why not – become rich by creating a strong income.
21 Ways To Earn Extra Cash Online
1) Publish an ebook
If you believe you have a strong pen, but probably not the chapter or the ability to publish a book, you can do so free of charge, online, by publishing a digital book or otherwise e-book. Although the market is largely saturated, many categories of books (especially those with technical issues) make excellent sales, which could provide you with some solid income.
The training course Kindle Money Mastery shows how to make a ton of money publishing books on Amazon’s Kindle Marketplace.
2) Sell an audiobook
If you still don’t have a special talent for writing, but you’re inclined to books, you can easily create an audiobook. Recorded books have traditionally been used for second language learning, or by students with learning problems, or by visually impaired people, and have become particularly popular in recent years.
3) Develop a Mobile App
The truth is that this choice requires technical knowledge. However, given the tremendous reach that online apps have and the high income they can generate (if successful), it wouldn’t be a bad thing to organize a group of people with the technical knowledge to make a good idea of you.
You might want to have a look at this article we wrote a while ago on how to make money from Android games.
Also, take a look at AppPresser. It is a website that allows you to build complete working applications with no technical skills. You might find it useful.
4) Complete online tasks on ySense
ySense has a 24-hour workforce on the Internet, able to complete any tasks work on behalf of any company.
The tasks are usually simple, easy, and “mechanical”, so you do not require any specialization. At the same time it can provide you with a satisfactory map, or even a regular salary, as long as you undertake many such tasks.
Such work constitutes, for example, the collection of specific photographs on the Internet or matching people with their names, etc.
In a previous article, we wrote on how some people are earning over 800 dollars per month just be completing online tasks for money.
5) Offer your services to Fiverr
6) Offer your services to Upwork or 99Designs
7) Start a blog
Creating a blog is one of the most gruesome and tedious ways to make money online. It takes a lot of work and leadership skills, but at one point, the scale begins to tilt towards you, everything becomes easier and your reward can be huge, as you can reach monthly payouts of up to tens of thousands of euros.
To create a blog you will need to register a domain name (the name of your website) and to host your new website to a server to be able to ”appear” online. For domain registration, I suggest checking NameCheap and for hosting, I suggest checking FastComet.
8) E-mail marketing
Many people think that e-mail marketing has “died”, but this is far from wrong, as e-mails are the “heart” of any business, and, if you do it right, it can be very profitable.
The way this method works is by building a list of people who have the same interest. For example, maybe they are people who want to earn extra cash online or people who have chihuahuas or people who love basketball. You get the idea.
Then you simply send them useful content that will help them and two-three times per month you send them an email – related to their niche – that ”pushes” them to buy something. If they buy, then you make a commission.
Most online gurus are using this method and they’ve become millionaires.
9) Sell items on E-Bay
Selling items through eBay isn’t as easy as it sounds. You have to make people believe you. Search for eBay Power Sellers, the top sellers, study the ways they sell their products and create your own model.
10) Sell your photos online
If you have talent with the photo lens, you can sell your photos to Shutterstock or iStockPhoto, the largest online photo providers.
Companies and marketing agencies from all around the world need professional photographs for their magazines, product designs and webpages.
To give you a better example, imagine a health magazine. Where do you think they get all their photos? Of course from websites like iStockPhoto and Shutterstock. These websites are also called ”photo banks”.
Just create an account, upload your photos, and build your passive income. If you want to accelerate your knowledge of this money-making method, check this course here.
11) Rent a house on AirBnb
If you are lucky enough to own real estate, which you do not use often, do not leave it untapped. Airbnb can provide you with an extremely good income. Just sign up, list your property for rent, and watch people applying to stay to your property.
12) Sell handmade items on Etsy
Etsy is the equivalent of eBay for handmade items. If you know how to craft anything hand-made then you need to list them on Etsy.
It is a huuuuge marketplace for people who want to buy handcrafted stuff. So, if you build handmade stuff you need to sell them there.
13) Become an Uber or Lyft driver
If you live in a country where Uber or Lyft operate, all you need is a diploma, and a smartphone with an internet connection, from where you download the Uber Driver app and you are ready to go.
14) Create your own online store
If you do not want to upload your items for auction on other sites, you can create your own online store, easily and quickly, through the Shopify platform.
Shopify is currently the most popular eCommerce platform in the world. It is so popular because they made their platform super newbie-friendly.
It is also the only eCommerce platform that was built to serve the dropshipping industry.
15) Collaborate with Amazon
For those who have the potential and want to level up their retail business, they can work with the industry leader Amazon – pretty much like partners.
You basically create an account with Amazon and list the products you have for sale. Then you choose the Fulfillment by amazon option.
When a sale occurs, Amazon will ship your products on your behalf. They basically take the logistics part out of the way for sellers.
16) Answer questions
Are you an expert in some field? If you believe you have the professional or technical knowledge in a specific field or niche, you can simply answer questions online on JustAnswer and get paid for your knowledge.
17) Create video tutorials on YouTube
It is certainly a longer-term strategy, but it is capable of making you big profits as long as you have the talent. You can upload videos explaining how to change a tire or how to fill out one’s tax return. The possibilities are endless.
Videos like these have huge resonance in the audience. Find your target group and aim for it.
18) Develop training courses/seminars
Through Udemy’s platform, you can upload training seminars or even entire courses on any subject from a foreign language and sciences, to specialized training seminars on how to do a specific complex task.
In your case, if you know how to make money online using a specific method you can teach it on Udemy.
19) Become a digital assistant
Although the work involved will not bring you large cash payouts, it is a good method to earn some extra cash online. Some people are even earning a noraml monthly salary doing this.
More particular, if you have basic Word, Excel, and PowerPoint knowledge, you can take on easy tasks like creating lists, etc. as long as you deliver them in the required time frame.
20) Become a digital teacher
If you want to teach in an even more direct way than uploading videos, you can become a digital teacher. Through the VerbalPlanet platform, you can start online courses or Webinars, featuring digital classes of one or more people watching you live.
21) Write for a website
Finally, you can become a columnist for a website without working directly on it. Although this work will not provide you with high returns, it can be a sure income, as there is always a demand for articles if you find a category of articles that suits you.
You can reach websites directly be going to their contact us page and send them an email or you can offer your services in various marketplaces like Fiverr, Writers Work or even in Facebook groups like Cult of Copy Job Board.
