Let’s face it, with family, homes, and expenses, how to make extra money is on a lot of people’s minds. The key is just finding something that’s right for you.
Depending on your preferences, skills, and the amount of time you can dedicate, there are literally unlimited ways to earn an extra $100 per day. Here are some ways you can earn extra money.
Start a WordPress Blog and Monetize it
These days it’s very easy to start a self-hosted blog with WordPress to write about the things you are passionate about. That’s exactly what I did when starting this blog a few years back. But to make money, you must monetize your blog. You can do this through affiliate marketing sites like Amazon Associates or ShareAsale.
Self-Publish a Kindle Book
Another great way to make extra money is by writing and publishing a Kindle book on Amazon Direct Publishing. You could write a short fiction story or a how-to book. You can learn more about Kindle self-publishing here.
Sell Digital Products Online
If you create digital products and want to sell them online easily, there are sites that will allow you to upload your product and use their check-out systems for a small fee when your item sells. Here are a few sites you can look into:
Build Websites for Others
I have earned good money building websites and doing SEO writing for businesses using my HTML, WordPress, and graphic design skills. The easiest way to find work is to directly ask business owners if they need help and then negotiate a price and contract.
Create an Online Course
If you have knowledge or a skill you want to teach, you can make passive income over and over again by creating an online course. Here are some online platforms that make it easy to do this:
Offer In-Home Care Services
Do you like caring for others? Offering in-home child care or caregiving services for seniors is something that’s always in demand. You can set your own hours and rates, and you can advertise your services in your local newspaper or advertise on a site like care.com.
Make Money with Cash Back Survey & Shopping Sites
The following sites not only offer rewards and points for shopping, you also can get rewarded for taking surveys, watching videos, and playing games.
Make Money Cleaning Clothes Out Your Closet
If you want to get rid of some old clothes, but don’t have the time to sell them, consider looking into ThredUp where you can simply ship them your items and they will do the selling for you. There’s also a payout estimator you can look at before sending your items. However, if you have designer items that you would like to earn top dollar on, try selling them yourself at Poshmark.
Refurbish and Sell Old Computers
If you are good with computers, consider refurbishing and selling them. This is exactly what my husband has done to earn $50 to $150 per computer. Many companies scrap their old PCs without the hard drives and monitors, so it pays to ask around. Plus, it’s easy to find cheap computer parts at flea markets and tag sales to bring old computers back to working condition.
Knit or Crochet Items to Sell
If you have a knack with yarn and needles, there are so many in-demand things you can make to sell like baby items, blankets, scarves, hats, shawls, and sweaters. You can sell your hand-crafted items at craft shows or at sites like Etsy. For inspiration and free patterns, check out Yarn.com.
Sell or Flip Used Furniture
Want to find cheap or free furniture to flip? You just need to know where to look. In your town, keep track of which day the town does curbside pickup and scavenge the neighborhoods on that day. Also, go on Craigslist.org any time and search for “curb alerts”, which is when someone puts something to their curb for free. Facebook.com/marketplace also has free and cheap furniture that you can flip.
Make Money Offering Local Cleaning Services
A great way to make extra money is to offer local cleaning services. You can advertise by running local ads, distributing mailbox flyers, and by word of mouth. Plus, to get started, cleaning supplies are not that expensive.
Become an Instacart Shopper
As an Instacart shopper, you are an independent contractor who shops for others and delivers the order to the customer using your own vehicle. They also use shoppers without vehicles who just prepare orders. Learn more about Instacart here.
Sell Vintage Items Online
The two best places to sell vintage items online are eBay and Etsy. You can get started with items you already own. But, if you don’t have anything, consider going to a local auction to buy things to stock up your store. You can find local auctions here at https://www.auctionzip.com.
Make Money with Focus Groups
By participating in a focus group, you can easily earn $100 in a day. Just find a topic that interests you or something you have experience with and apply. Two places to look at are Findfocusgroups and Focusgroups.org.
Become a Tutor
I’ve actually done a bit of tutoring in the past, teaching others how to use software and computer applications. But there’s a whole new market out there for online tutoring and teaching English as a second language.
Become an Amazon FBA Seller
For $39.99 a month plus seller fees, you can become a seller on Amazon FBA and sell any product you choose. You can start with used books. Or consider items like small garden tools, toys, electronics, or apparel. I’ve actually purchased wholesale women’s clothing here in the past and received discounts based on quantities.
Make Money with Cash-Back Shopping
Rakuten, formerly Ebates provides cashback through 100’s of online retailers, many of whom you may already shop from. So why not make some extra cash shopping for things you normally purchase anyway.
Another site that works, in the same way, is BeFrugal, which I also use for shopping discount coupons and instant cashback offers. The best part of both of these sites is that once you sign up, you can add their extension to your browser so that you never miss an offer while shopping online.
Become a Virtual Assistant
If you’re looking for ways to work by offering services to businesses, check out these resources. You can offer virtual services such as writing, accounting, email marketing graphic design, and more.
Get a Work at Home Job
Today there are many companies that offer work from home positions, both full and part-time that can easily earn you $100 a day. Flexjobs is a site that for a monthly fee, offers nothing but work-from-home positions with major companies. It’s worth looking into.
Sell Printable Pages Online
If you’re good with graphic design or page layout, selling printable pages is an easy way to make money. You can make coloring pages, calendars, gift tags, wall prints with sayings on them, planners, checklists, and lots more. Here are some of the printables I sell on Etsy here.
Open an eCommerce Store
If you want to start a small business and have a lot of items to sell, whether it’s hand-made items, unique crafts, or specialty products, consider opening your own online store. One of the most popular eCommerce platforms to do this with is Shopify which combines an easy drop & drag store builder, mobile-ready designs, and support for 100+ payment gateway.
