Okay, before you jump the gun – I’m not going to mention any internet marketing training in this article!
If you’ve visited this site before you’ll already know about the Wealthy Affiliate education platform and how I learned my trade there.
In this article we are going to be looking at a few other options to make money from your spare time – choices you may not have thought about before.
So, if you’re looking to make a little extra cash on the side, why not try out one of the following…
1) How to Make Money From Your Art
I recently stumbled across a pretty cool website that offers artists a pretty original way of making money with their work.
Turning Art is directed towards artists and homeowners – linking the two so a ‘type’ of transaction can take place.
It’s a handy setup really – the homeowner is looking to rent or even buy art for their property (businesses are welcome to use this service as well!).
Artists can then earn royalties when their work is rented, or when prints or originals are sold through Turning Art.
2) Make Money With a Boat
My uncle bought himself a boat many years ago because we lived in a seaside village at the time – he thought he’d use it every other weekend when he came down to visit us.
But, let’s be honest here – how many boat owners actually get out on the waves as regularly as they thought they would?
So, if you’re looking to make money with a boat I suggest you check out the pretty awesome Boatbound. Here’s the blurb from their homepage…
“With Boatbound, you no longer need a friend with a boat. With thousands of boats, captains, and destinations, the only question is… when are you planning your next adventure?”
I gave this bunch a quick sweep over because I now live in Cardiff, and the dock area has a lot of sailors/boats etc.
Just typed in my address and a load of results came up – this is obviously quite a popular site!
3) Make Money Online Completing Tasks
Probably the simplest choice of the lot – all you need is a email address and a Paypal account to get started!
When I first came online to work full time I didn’t really have a pot to piss in – I was broke. I was interested in taking on some internet marketing training but at the time this cost money – something I didn’t have.
Luckily I came across a popular site known as Clixsense – it’s a platform that offers anyone the chance to make money through simple ‘mini jobs’ or ‘tasks’.
Now, I’m not saying this is the most interesting work you will ever come across…because it’s not!
But, it completely paid for the whole of my internet marketing education and it was completely legit.
If you are interested in completing surveys, data entry tasks, offers, videos or competitions/games for money – check out Clixsense.
It’s a great place to earn a little extra cash every week!
4) Make Money off Your Car
Just a warning – I’m not going to mention Uber here!
99.9% of you are already going to be familiar with their service…so I thought I’d give you something a little different!
Turo is a excellent company that leads the way in peer-to-peer car rental space. If you have a spare family car that you don’t use that often – why not put it to work?
Here’s the blurb from their website homepage…
“Choose from over 800 unique makes and models, from affordable daily drivers to rare specialty cars. Pick up your rental or get it delivered, wherever you need it, up to 35% less than traditional agencies.”
I was interested in this company myself so I did a little digging around into it – turns out some members are making a LOT of money through Turo’s services.
That’s right – some savvy members are even taking out leases on cars specifically to rent them out on Turo, turning them into a sort of ‘business’.
5) Join a Home Babysitting Service
Got to be honest with you – not really my cup of tea!
I’ve got a 12-year-old and a 3-year-old – they are more than enough for me!
But, if you have the time, and you like to be around kids – you may want to look into UrbanSitter for some work.
Set your own babysitting rates, availability, and geographic area you cover. The website charges the parents a monthly fee so you will always receive ALL of the wages you make!
6) Make Money Renting Clothes
This option is geared more towards the female side of things…but it’s still a pretty cool way to earn a bit of cash off something you are not using!
Style Lend is a website-turned-community that is made up of thousands of women sharing their style.
Your clothes need to be pretty decent though – you must have paid over $200 for them at retail (i.e. don’t turn up with the jeans you bought for a fiver last August!).
It’s a simple system really – Style Lend will store your clothing for free and pay you each time someone rents an item of yours.
