Need a little extra pocket money and want to earn on the side of your day job or as a hobby from home? There’s some great and simple ways of making money online that you’ll be able to do from the comfort of your own sofa! Here are 5 top ways to earn online…
Businesses like to use surveys as a way of market research, to find out peoples opinions on their company, and to see how they can improve in the future.
All you have to do is sign up to a survey site, there are lots of popular ones including Swagbucks, Valued Opinions and Inbox Pounds, receive the polls and surveys via your email inbox and simply sit and fill them out. The survey sites will then send your cash, gift cards, and rewards to your account. It’s as simple as that!
This way of making money online is more gradual, as depending on the market research and the targeted customer, you don’t know how many surveys you will be sent. So it’s not a quick way to cash, but if you stick at it, you will hopefully hit the payout threshold.
A fairly quick way of earning money is by selling things online. If you’re having a clear out and your clothes or other wares are still in good condition, why not sell them on sites such as Ebay, Amazon, Gumtree and Shpok? You can create time limits to sell your products by, and can decide on a starting bid price too! You know what they say, another woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure! You can clear out your house and earn money while someone else gets to enjoy your pre-loved products- it’s a win win!
Alternatively, if you like to make things as a hobby and have lots of crafts that are just lying around the house, you could think about selling them via sites such as ETSY! You can sell your bespoke makes and even set up your own little business if you have the time to make the crafts. You could end up earning a good amount of money if your crafts get enough sales on this wonderful site!
Another way to earn online is by doing paid reviews. If you have a website or popular social media page, you can consider reviewing other peoples websites (sometimes via articles or videos) and brands for a fee. It’s best to choose to do reviews for companies and brands that are relevant to your audience though. Much of the time, brands will expect you to speak positively about their products or they might not want you to review them again. This way of earning money is best for those who have their own successful page or website as the more followers you have, the more you can charge for a review.
Competitions are a fun way to make money and win great prizes online! From cars and holidays, to money and vouchers, there’s all kinds of competitions on the web to be entered. You can make a real, serious hobby out of it too called ‘comping’ if you spend time entering the right ones.
Of course competitions are a game of luck, but you can seriously increase your chances if you enter hundreds of the right ones often!
Finally like us, you can use affiliate links to earn money online. We like to be transparent with our followers at Ashleigh Money Saver and will tell you that we do use affiliate links where possible on our site. This means that when people click through one of our affiliate links and go on to buy a product or service, we will be paid a small commission. The price you will pay for the product will not change, you may actually pay less if we’re highlighting a promotion.
Affiliate links are one of the ways we do get paid for the work we do, though we do give a lot of information out for free because we want to help people to get great bargains, and would only feature a product or service that we would use and buy ourselves!
