With everything seeming to cost SO much more these days, we are all either on the hunt for ways to save the money we do have or to try and find new and ingenious ways to get more money…legally of course!
Here in this article we will give you our top 30 ways on how you can earn some extra money online…
OK, so this one might not be for everyone, especially if you have any problems with gambling as essentially this is what it is…however with the risk of loosing all your money taken out. So many people I know have given this a try and if you can get to grips with how to do it and have the time to put in to do it then you could make yourself ALOT of extra money.
There are a lot of rubbish websites that will pay you maybe £0.02p per survey you complete but there are also some really good ones…you just have to sift through them to find the good ones. A few good ones are – Toluna, I-Say, Panel Opinion, OnePoll, Survey Junkie, Hiving…along with others.
Searching The Web
Yes, there are companies out there that will pay you to search the web for them. One company that springs to mind is Qmee.com who will reward you for searching Google, Bing and Yahoo. All you need to do is download their add-on to your browser and get searching. Each search you do will give you a cash reward – and there is no minimum so you could cash out after only receiving a few pounds! Great if you want fast cash.
Start Your Own Website
This one might take you a bit of time to get started and you will need to put in ALOT of man hours, especially at the start but once you get a good footing, you could begin to see the pounds rolling in. Whether you just want to start a blog, or sell products you are making at home, it’s a great way to make some extra money…especially if you really stick at it.
A great way to make money is to review websites and apps for companies. The campy UserTesting.com pays everyday people to review websites – which generally takes about 20 minutes to complete and could get you around £5 direct to your PayPal account.
Become A Delivery Driver
Many companies such as Deliveroo are always on the look out for delivery drivers, especially in the more populated areas. All you’ll need is a bike or a car and a smartphone and off you go! Apparently you can make around £15 per hour and the hours are generally very flexible…more so for evenings.
Publish an e-book
Publishing an e-book isn’t something where you need to be an expert in publishing or even technology, many companies will offer the service to do it for you. Amazon actually have this service through their Kindle Store and they will give you up to 70% of sales. So all you need to do is worry about what you are going to write in your e-book and then get selling – great if you already have your website up and running.
Another great one if you have your website up and running and well established is including affiliate links in your articles. After placing these links on your website or social media channels, if someone clicks on your link and buys the item, you will receive a percentage of the sale. The commissions given on many clicked links are very good and once the link is in place you don’t really have to do too much more. Easy money! The two companies I would recommend are Affiliate Window and Awin.
This might sound a little odd but I’m sure you have a few things around your home that you don’t use that you could recycle for money. Things like mobile phones, old games, DVD’s…etc are all highly sort after items from companies such as Music Magpie, Mazuma Mobile and Envirophone. They don’t offer great rates but if you want to declutter your house a bit and get some extra money while you’re at it, it’s a great place to start.
Not one of the most well-known of ways to et some money but with Clickworker, you complete tasks such as – data entry, web research or filling in forms and they pay you in cash direct to your PayPal account once the task is complete.
If you have ever worked part-time, whether for a summer or for a longer period of time, it’s worth checking to see if you are owed a tax refund. Tax is worked out on you being in full-time employment so you may have been over taxed during any time you worked part time. There are many websites you can go to that will help you work out whether you are owed a tax refund but going direct to HMRC might be the quickest way to do this.
Companies such as Quidco and Top Cashback are great places you can go that will give you money back on products bought through them. Al you have to do is sign up and purchase your item through their link and they will give you a certain percentage back – normally around 10 – 1% but every little helps…especially if you were going to buy this item anyway!
There are so many places around these days where you can find freelance jobs pretty easily. The best ones I have come across are – Fiverr, 5 Squid, People Per Hour and Up Work. You sign up with them, set up an account and then browse the jobs that people are looking to get done. These jobs can be anything from – social media management, writing articles, creating logos, reviewing products and creating videos or voice overs…and so much more! All you do when you find the job you think you can do is pitch your service to them and wait to see if they pick you to do the work for them.
Slice the pie is one of the main places where you can review review products and music, so if you like to give your feedback on these types of things, this might be a great one for you. OK, so they pay is awful (approx £0.10p per review) so it does take some time to get a decent amount of money saved up in your pot but if you have the time, it’s easy money.
OK, so this one isn’t a guarantee to get you money but if you don’t try, you’ll never know! You could end up winning some great products/money for doing very little at all. There are some great pages on Facebook where you can sign up to find current competitions. One thing we suggest you do is to create a new email address just for entering competitions as many will send you spam emails once you’ve registered.
This one can be very fun to do and is one I have done a few times over the years.
