Both online and offline, there are more opportunities than ever before to earn extra money. That’s great, but it can be difficult to decide where to put your time.
Use this list to learn new ways to work from home and earn money online. Earn money while you walk, recycle, review music, or even just browse the web.
Please feel free to bookmark this page as we’ll be adding new ways to make money quickly to it.
The best ways to start earning extra money right now are as follows.
1 . Review websites & apps
You certainly seem to be quite adept at using a web browser. So perhaps it’s time to go pro and start earning money while having fun browsing websites!
Let me introduce you to UserTesting, a platform that pays regular people to evaluate various websites. Each review takes about twenty minutes, and you receive $10 (£6.50) via Paypal.
Just register here, finish the test review, and wait to receive websites in your inbox.
2 . The ‘Disney Vault’ secret
Disney Studios places restrictions on the supply of some classic home releases in order to maintain high demand across generations. Physical Blu-ray discs are kept in the “vault” for 8–10 years before being temporarily made available.
When they go off-sale for another ten or so years, if you purchase them now at the normal retail price, you can make a nice profit.
For instance, in 2011 you could pay just £24.99 to purchase Beauty and the Beast on Blu-ray 3D. It was selling for an astounding £74.99 on Amazon in just a few years!
Importantly, only the genuine classics will continue to maintain such demand; not all Disney releases are included in the vault.
There are only two titles currently available that I would urge you to buy.
They are Bambi Diamond Edition Blu-ray and The Lion King Diamond Edition Blu-ray.
3 . ‘Get Paid To’ sites
GPT sites pay you in cash and vouchers for completing various online offers or activities, much like how you can earn money from online surveys.
The most popular sites today are Toluna, Swagbucks and InboxPounds.
4 . Become a delivery rider or driver
own a car, motorcycle, or bicycle? What about smartphone. That is all you require to deliver food or people whenever you have some free time and earn extra money.
Join delivery-focused businesses like Deliveroo, which are always looking for new riders. They give you complete freedom to choose when you want to work and deliver food from restaurants to customers’ doors. You can earn as much as £16 per hour.
Increase your chances by directly contacting larger chains like Dominos and neighborhood takeaways to see if any delivery jobs are available.
5 . Publish a Kindle eBook
If there is anything that students excel at, it is writing and research. With the Kindle store, anyone can publish an eBook and make money on Amazon.
Your global market is enormous because the Kindle app is now available on all devices!
You will receive 70% of sales if you price your book between £1.49 and £6.99. That is a great deal given that Amazon is the ultimate selling machine (and keep in mind, people are looking to spend).
Writing non-fiction and adding value are the keys to success with eBooks. A few pounds can be spent on it if you package information you’ve studied and compiled on a common issue (like “secrets” to finding a job) and then present it in an accessible format (an eBook).
Create a professional-looking cover so it will stand out (browse these).
Get some reviews as soon as your eBook is available on the Kindle store so it ranks higher in search results. Encourage readers to leave an honest review at the end of your book.
The best thing about this profitable concept is that, after you’ve put in the time (let’s say 20 hours), you’ll continue to make money passively for years to come!
