Whether you’re a part-time worker or a full-time student or parent, you might be wanting to make a little extra money from home. Luckily for you, it’s easier than ever before to make extra money thanks to the internet, and, the fact that more companies accept that working from home is not a productivity killer.
Sell Old Items
One of the best ways to make some extra money is by going through all of your belongings and taking note of everything you no longer use, like, or need. This can include old electronics, clothing, decor, as well as other items. All of this can then be sold on websites or services such as Gumtree, Facebook Marketplace, and eBay. If you have old tech, DVDs, smartphones, or video games lying around, it’s a good idea to sell them too on the aforementioned websites or you can visit trade-in shops such as CEX, Cash Converters, and even GAME, all of which can offer you a decent price.
While you won’t earn hundreds of pounds by doing this, you can earn some decent money depending on what you sell and who’s buying it. No matter how much you make from this, it’ll all help in the long-run and you can always combine it with some of the other methods listed here.
Reviews, Surveys and Market Research
Companies are always looking for customer opinions on their products or services and many will pay you simply for your opinion, although it’s usually not that much. Regardless, this type of work will come in the form of polls, online surveys, discussion groups, videos, and various other methods. All are easy for you to participate in and can be done fairly quickly too.
Some of the items you may review and test can include electronics, beauty products, food, toys, online casinos, and so much more. There are various websites which you can join to participate in testing and market research. So why not give it a go, you may even get something you really enjoy!
In regards to online gambling, it’s worth mentioning that you should always keep an eye on those operators that have a valid gambling license. You want to review a casino or their sister sites that provide fair games and promote responsible gambling. Otherwise, your voice might help promote a product that is not legit.
A sure-fire way of making extra money is by taking up some freelance work on the side. There are dozens of different websites you can register with that will allow you to complete freelance work in anything you’re skilled at such as editing, proofreading, writing, translating, graphic designing, voiceover work, artwork, and so much more.
What’s more, many entrepreneurs around the world are now searching for virtual assistants that can help them by managing their schedule, booking appointments and travel services, and plenty more. No matter what you do, all of this can be done from the comfort of your own home and you’ll be able to work as you please.
Another great way of making some extra money is through online tutoring. There are several websites you can join that will allow you to tutor a subject you have a knowledge of. If it’s something you’re passionate about, it’ll come easy to you and you should be able to fit this around other commitments too. What’s more, you don’t have to be highly-qualified to do this so most people can apply.
All of this can help you make some extra money on the side. However, it’s important to note you won’t be rolling in thousands of pounds, but whatever you earn can certainly help so why not give it a try?
