If you’re a fan of family days out and like to treat yourself and your family every now and then, having a bit of extra cash can be very helpful. In addition to your existing income, there are many ways you can make extra money on the fly. In recent years we have been blessed with the internet, which has given us lots of new exciting ways to generate additional income. Here are some of them:
Start A Blog
Starting a blog can be a lot of work at first, but once you have built your platform and written some content, the work can be minimal. To start a blog, think about a niche that you are really passionate about and write a few short articles that relate to it. Get yourself a relevant domain to host your blog under, and search online for ad providers that will pay to be featured on your blog. You can also become an affiliate to other websites or companies that come under your niche and monetise your blog that way. There is a lot of information online that can guide you through the process of creating a successful blog.
Bet On The Forex Market
Betting on the changes in the forex market can be a good way to earn money. Sites like CMC Markets allow you to spread bet and trade forex. This does come with its risks however and profit is not guaranteed, due to the nature of trading. However, there are some online traders out there that can make a good side income from it.
Buy Domain Names, And Sell Them
There is a lot of money to be made in domain names, a domain name is a website name that you type into the search bar, usually followed by .co.uk, or .com. If you manage to get your hands on a domain name that hasn’t been registered yet, it could be valuable in future. Facebook recently paid around six million pounds for the domain ‘fb.com’, so if you stumble across something similar, you could hit the big bucks. However, most domain name buyers and sellers don’t make huge amounts of money, but for some it can be a good top-up income.
Make Money From Videos
If you are particularly interested in a hobby, craft, or other skill, then you could make money from instructional videos. For example, some people may choose to make tutorial videos to show others how to make a certain recipe, or teach them a certain song on the piano. Tutorial videos do pretty well on video sites and can earn you ad revenue when people click on them. Others will even use affiliate links to products in their videos. For example, a cooking video maker may make money each time a viewer purchases a particular kitchen utensil through their affiliate link. All you really need to get started is a camera and a niche that you want to make video content about.
Review Music Online
If you have an ear for music and are a fan of most genres, there are websites out there that will pay you for your opinion. You are usually required to listen to a short audio clip, or watch a snippet from a music video and write a short review on it. These sites usually pay you per review, it’s very little (usually pennies), but it can add up over time. It’s usually a good option for those that find themselves bored in their spare time, you will never get rich from it, similar to online surveys.
Test Apps And Make Money
Many app developers are always on the lookout for people to test their apps and give feedback on them. Usually, you will need to download the app on your mobile device and follow a few instructions or use it for a certain amount of time. Many app developers will advertise for testers through agency sites, so get yourself signed up and see what’s available. Some testers can make a decent side income from app testing.
