Top 5 Ways to Earn Money Online
Got some spare time? In need of a little extra cash? There are tons of ways to make some extra money online but here are my top 5 ways that you can earn £££’s from the comfort of your own home…
Earn Money by Freelancing
Freelancers work is a type of self-employment that is carried out on a flexible basis – depending on what suits your skills, availability, and the employer’s needs.
Fiverr is my favourite freelance services marketplace. It’s free to sign up and you can pretty much offer any service you wish. The most advertised services include photography, graphic design, web development and content writing. Some people get full-time work from Fiverr and others offer their services as a side hustle. Once you complete a buyer’s order, your earnings are transferred straight into your account (you keep 80% of each transaction).
Selling your old stuff, or stuff that you’ve acquired on the cheap can be a real money earner and one worth considering if you’re looking to make money from home.
Ebay and Amazon are probably the most well known marketplace websites, but there are a whole range of websites and apps that you can utilise to sell (& hopefully profit) from your items!
There are tons of research companies willing to offer rewards for consumer opinions! The amount you earn with survey sites really does depend on the amount of effort you’re willing to put in! It’s worth considering the best survey site for you as some will be better for certain people depending on your attention span, willingness to record responses and preferred payment method.
My favourite survey site is Prolific, as it was set up to help real researchers find participants for their studies (so the surveys are always pretty interesting & for a good cause!). They also let you cash out once you’ve reached £5 via PayPal or Circle.
With Appen, you can work from home a Social Media Evaluator or Search Engine Analysis. An SME/SEA provides feedback on ads, news feeds, and search results on social media platforms.
Payment can vary depending on the project and job that you sign up for. The average job pays around £10 per hour. You will need to record your hours and submit an invoice and you’ll be paid monthly through your preferred payment method. As you will be working as an ‘Independent Contractor’, you will need to take care of your taxes.
Start a blog
There are tons of bloggers that blog full-time and earn some very good money doing so! If you do want to earn money from blogging you have to be willing to put in some extra work & do your research. Most bloggers earn their money by doing sponsored posts, affiliate marketing and advertising.
I started this blog in July 2018 (still a baby blogger) but while I’ve been enjoying blogging I have just joined the affiliate marketing world. Affiliate marketing means that if you buy a product or sign up to a service through some of the links on my blog I earn commission (at no extra cost to you).
