1) How to Make Money From Your Art

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

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?

Not many.

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!

If you are totally new to making money online, I would suggest that you check out my #1 recommended online business course as this was my stepping stone to build an income generating business.


3) Make Money Online Completing Tasks

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

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’.

There’s only ONE program I really recommend. It helped me turn my hobby’ into a $10,000+ per month money making machine. Click here for the exact formula I followed.


5) Join a Home Babysitting Service

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

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.


Make Money From Your Spare Time

Now it’s over to you – what do you do to earn money in your spare time?

  1. Both my kids paint, I’ll see if they might be interested in Turning Art and earning some petty cash.  Clixsense sounds interesting, I’m going to check that out for myself.

    I’ll definitely check out Turo. I don’t have a car at the moment. Are they operating in the states, I live in New York and uber can get pricey.

    Nice article, those are great ways to earn some money.  Thanks for the great info.

    1. No problem Margarette – hopefully the kids will come up with a winner with their paintings…and turn you all into millionaires! 🙂

  2. I must say that I am glad that I have found this article. I really did not know that I can earn money with my car. I should try it. I have experience with clixsense but I can say that it is not for long-term income and I prefer passive earning. Thank you for revealing such great ways of earning money!

    1. Hi Daniel, 

      No Clixsense isn’t really a ‘full time wage’ website – it’s geared more towards making that extra money every month instead! 

  3. This is very interesting. I’m always looking for ways to make money.

    My wife is an artist so she would be interested in making money from her artwork.

    There are many sites that you can make money with but usually don’t pay a lot for the time you put in, but it is still money. Clixsense is one I’ve never heard of and am going to look into.

    These are some clever ideas for making money but the one I like best is Wealthy Affiliate! This is a totally legitimate program that you can build your online business with! I love Wealthy Affiliate!

    1. Clixsense is a cool little site Rob, it has been for over a decade now! Just don’t expect to get rich from it. 

      I see you are a WA member then – how’s that treating you?

  4. I like reading articles about making money online because though I’m working on something long term, a little cash on the side for subscriptions truly helps. I’m trying to build an online business.

    Through your review, I will be checking out clixsense, looks like they have simple task I can earn a bit from.

    Thank you for sharing.

    1. Hi Eohia,

      Clixsense is a really cool legit site – I’ve been a member there for about 8 years or so now, and they ALWAYS pay every month! 

  5. Hi Chris. Thanks for this informative article. Your first suggestion on how to make extra money caught my eye as I have some paintings and haven’t marketed them properly and even have a website!

    I was also interested in Turo and the cars. I am curious to know how insurance and liability is handled in case of accidents.

    I can’t think of any new ideas off the top of my head but I read an article several years ago about how a Russian collected a couple of thousand liquor bottles a day and made a fortune. I guess if you want the money, you will find a way.

    Thanks for sharing these excellent tips and I definitely will be checking out “Turning Art.”

    1. Hi Mary, 

      Funnily enough, I’ve had numerous messages from people who like the idea of selling their art! As far as the driving jobs go – I really have no idea about the insurance and liability (sorry!). 

  6. I have made some money with Clixsense, it’s not much but a little is still better then nothing. Making money from your art is a really cool idea.  I wish my ex would have thought of that.  He was a great artist but now he is not able to create art like he used to.  We don’t know exactly what is wrong with him yet but he is too shaky to create the wonderful works of art that he used to create. That is a wonderful way to earn some extra cash.We don’t own a boat or a car or have a ton of clothes to rent, those are great suggestions though.  It makes you think creatively and figure out what you can do to make some extra cash.

    1. Well I’m sorry to hear about the medical condition your ex is suffering Shy – hopefully he’ll come around and you’ll get to see those great works of art again!
