Most people want a few more dollars in their wallets. But between an employer and family, the time most of us can devote to a second job is severely limited. Running a small side business can provide a few more options: you don’t have to show up at a set time and you can use skills you already have. Not all will be perfect for everyone, of course, and I’m sure that you’ll have a few ideas of your own after reading this list. If you’d like to share any other business ideas, please add them in the comments.
– Project Payday is one of those sites that has testimonials of people who have earned thousands of dollars by getting paid to get trial offers. I’m not saying you’ll earn thousands, but it is legit and you can earn some extra cash. They assume that by paying you to do a free trial, you’ll either like the product and purchase it, or forget to cancel the trial and get charged for it. If you can keep track and cancel before you get charged (if you don’t want the product), then this is a great site for making some money.
29. Videos – This could be an entire section on it’s own. Many people have made money by creating YouTube videos. Evan of EvanTube is a kid and he has made millions by creating reviews of products that other kids his age would use. It’s not easy to get views into the millions, but once you do, you’ll start seeing some cash come in. Many bloggers have completely turned to videos to get their point across by starting a video blog.
5. Fiverr – Fiverr is a great place to make a few bucks or spend a few bucks if you need some of the services people offer. Basically, everything is $5. You either pay $5 or charge $5. They call them “gigs.” You can offer your services however you choose. If you sell art and you’re fine selling pieces for $5 each, that’s a gig. If you’re a graphic designer and you want to offer your services for $10/hour, simply offer a 30 minute gig. If they need two hours of graphic design, they pay you $20, or $10/hour by buying four gigs.
One of the most commonly explained and followed way, but usually never make properly comprehensive to the reader. When we talk about blogging, it’s acquiring a domain and writing on a specific niche. If you can pen down your thoughts in a specific genre, this is your thing and advertisements like Google AdSense can be a good way of earning money through blogging whilst if you are just a new registration with nil followers and viewers, this will bring no help. In India, most of the people make a mistake by considering writing articles, after going through different website contents regarding that topic as blogging. It indeed takes hard work and is also time-consuming for anyone to take reference from far-famed websites, giving a new explanation to the points they explained, and after all this, awaiting AdSense approval. This usually doesn’t work well and declined by Google, which makes the writer quit sooner than one can think. To have your content be treated as a quality source of information by Google, one needs to maintain ingenuity. There are many things in India which are not discussed by other bloggers, one can write over those issues using a personalized point of view and research in college. Talking about current issues, genuine problems of student life, a specialized research topic, and what not can be written about. When I speak about blogging, which I have myself done; I talk about people who have something unique and veritable to write about. There is a way of expressing, wielding a phrase, and making choice of the topic which will interest the reader. It requires patience to generate followers and viewers.
20. Etsy – If you like to create arts and crafts, you can sell them on Etsy.It’s completely free to open an Etsy store. You simply sign up, post pictures of your creations and starting selling. You can choose your payment option, but PayPal is generally the easiest. Etsy makes it easy to sell and keep track of your inventory. There is a small listing fee and they take 3.5% of every sale you make.
