We all need to make extra money for different reasons. Maybe you have debt, maybe you need money to send your kids to college, or maybe you are in college and need money to pay for an extra course or something.
There are many reasons why people need extra money, I am sure you also have yours, right?
Maybe you need to make an extra $700 to buy that new computer you need for your studies? Or maybe you need even more money for some financial goal you have?
Today you will learn some ways to create money for the financial goals that you might have. If you already got an income and it is not enough, these ways can all be used to make extra, on the side, of your current income.
Make EXTRA Money
If you want something bad enough you will find a way… Create it!
I know many ways to create money when I need to. I promise you that if you take at least one or two of the methods I am about to present you will be able to make, at least $100 a week.
Think about this, if you can create $100 when you need to do it, then you can also create $500, or more if you really need to. Below I will present some of the ways you can choose to do just that.
Have A Garage Sale
By having a garage sale you are not only making some money, but you also clean it out on things that you probably don´t need (or use).
Sell Things You Don´t Need On eBay
Sell anything that just lays around in your home, not being used by you. This is a very easy way to earn some extra money.
Work For A Virtual Marketplace
This is getting more and more common to do. This way people from all over the world can advertise their skills and let customers hire them for money. Great way to make some extra money and also allows you to use your skills. The best and most well-known place for this is Fiverr.
Get Yourself A Part-Time Job
If you got some extra hours of spare time after job (or school) to get an extra job, then do it! That is a great way to make the extra money you need (for whatever reason you need it).
Start Your Own Small Business
This is something that can be very lucrative. Use your imagination here. For example,
you can bake your own bread and sell it in your neighbourhood. Don´t require much investment and can make you a pretty good income.
Complete Easy Tasks Online
There are many websites online that allow you to make money doing very simple things. This is absolutely free to do and the tasks can be anything, for example, completing a survey, click on an ad, playing a new online game, etc. Best and most well know site for this is Clixsence. I tried this site just for fun not long ago and I made $10 in only 2 days. Not bad if you ask me. Do this for a month and you could easily make $50-$100 (or probably more).
Sell Your Old Textbook
If you went to college you might have a few old textbooks left from that time? Sell them, you probably never going to open them again anyway, right? Sell them to second-hand vendors. You can actually get up to 50% of the original price, especially if the book is in decent shape.
Become a tutor for young children. Find companies that contract you and connects you with students that need extra help. You can also find families looking to hire a private tutor.
Are you good at something? All of us got something that we are extra good at doing. Start training people in whatever you are good at. Maybe you can play an instrument, some sport, a language, etc. Anything goes here. This you can do both IRL or online. To do it online you can use Fiverr for example.
Sign Up As A “Ginny Pig”
There are many harmless Psychological experiments and studies for example. This is an easy way to make some extra cash. These studies can last for a few weeks and you are very often paid well for your attendance.
Virtual Customer Service
Sign up to be a call centre agent is also an option for you. You have many companies to choose from and many times you can do this work from home. It is not hard at all to do this, most of the times you will even have a script to follow and an FAQ sheet to support you. Do this for a month and you will easily have $700+
You might be able to take advantage of some of the help wanted opportunities listed on Craigslist. List items that you want to sell there, or why not host an online garage sale?
Write And Publish eBooks
This may sound hard but eBooks are many times not very long. If you are creative this might be something for you. On Amazon, you can earn up to 70% of the book price on every sale.
Start A Blog
I notice that people tend to think that starting a (successful) blog is hard, I can tell you that it is not. Some basic writing skill and an interest in whatever topics you are going to write about are more than enough. Once you have a blog there are almost endless ways of monetizing it. Rent out ad space, sell other people’s products (or services), or sell your own products. This will probably not make you money instantly but if you do it for some time you will start to generate a so-called passive income. How big you make that income is up to you, the sky is the limit! Do it for a year and there is a big chance that you have replaced or even earn way more than your current 9-5. Best and most well-known site to get started with this is Wealthy Affiliate University.
Get a loan (and/or invest)
Sometimes you know exactly what needs to be done, you might have a great business idea and want to get started right away, the only thing missing is the financial means to do it. There are many places to get a loan, I wouldn´t recommend 99% of them though as the rates you have to pay back are way to high.
However, there is an amazing company named Bitbond that allows you to get a loan for your small business idea with great benefits, it is the other members that approve your loan and finance you in the form of bitcoins. It is a win-win for both and it is easy to understand why it is so popular among people all around the world. It is also a place where you can invest and make money that way.
These ideas are just a few options that you have to make money. I have probably missed a ton but these are the ones that I could come up with right now. Maybe you got more tips? Share them in the comment section and I will be more than happy to include them in the post.
Get started on 1 of these and you will have that extra money to buy that thing (you maybe can´t really afford right now) faster. Get started on 2 or 3 of these options and you will have that extra money you need in no time.
I hope you found this post to be helpful and now you should have some good ideas on where to start to make that extra money that you need. Please leave a comment! Also, I will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have about this post.
I wish you the best!

This is good John….something that’s not too difficult to do to make extra money. Thanks for doing the “thought” process so all we have to do is pick out one that fits us and do it.
I also looked at your page concerning “Bitcoins”. This is one that is very deep because it seems as if we are still not sure if this is truly a scam or just something to be very cautious about. Good article! THANKS FOR MAKING US AWARE!
Thank you, hope you found something that suited your needs here.
Well, Bitcoin is absolutely not a scam it is very real. Not sure what you mean here?
Such a powerful advise john..u gave people a hope for the future?thanks to this ?
Thank you, appreciate your comment a lot. Makes me very happy to hear that 🙂
