If you are like most people, you are on the prowl for new ways to make money. This is not to say the average person is willing to moonlight at the local fast food joint or coffee shop to make some extra dough during the workweek. Rather, most hardworking individuals are searching for a way to make additional cash in their time off from their primary job. Instead of spending hour after hour scouring the web, searching for the best ways to make some extra money, simply keep on reading. We’ve done all the work for you.
Sell Old and Unused Items on Craiglist and eBay
Sort through all of your belongings to find the items you no longer use, need and/or desire. Instead of letting these items continue to collect dust in the basement or attic, sell them on the web. If the item is still functional or has aesthetic appeal, it will fetch a decent amount of money on Craigslist or eBay. Aside from earning money, the best part about selling your old items online is they will bring back memories from your youth, providing quite the enjoyable reminiscence.
Become an Online Tutor
Did you know plenty of people earn good money tutoring others on the web? You can do the same in your unique specialty on websites like Tutor.com, Skooli and Tutorme.com. Furthermore, the web’s seemingly countless online work platforms also present web-based tutoring opportunities. Whether your niche is science, math, English or music, you can easily teach lessons from the comfort of home to boost your income.
Rent out Part of Your Living Space
Wouldn’t it be nice to rent part of your home to someone in need of affordable digs? Pick the right person and you just might make money while obtaining the added benefit of friendship. If you prefer to rent out the entirety of your home while away on vacation, be sure to check out AirBnB. Maximize the space in your home through convenient rentals and you won’t have to bother looking for a second job to ensure your monthly financial ends meet.
Launch Your Own Blog
Though the web has plenty of blogs, some are true money-makers, providing considerable sums of money resulting from an expansive reader base. If you have any sort of niche, unique interest or special ability, tout it on your blog. Establish yourself as a source of insight/knowledge and people interested in your specialty will keep coming back. Feature your writing in guest blog posts on other websites, have them return the favor and your blog traffic will gradually spike as time progresses, empowering you to sell online ad space that bolsters your income.
Become a UX Tester
UX is short for user experience. Though it might be hard to believe, companies really are willing to pay you to test out the user experience design of their websites and other systems. The best part is you can test out UX designs from the comfort of home. As long as you know what to look for in a UX design and can communicate your thoughts about the design in a clear and cogent manner, sites like TryMyUI and UserTesting will be interested in paying you for your feedback.
