1. Sell Yourself Online with Fiverr
Get creative and sell you and your time online in a fresh, new way (it’s not what you think). Fiverr is a website dedicated to connecting people to talented individuals to get things done. We all have talents and some of them can be quite marketable. Some of the featured gigs I noticed on Fivver include drawing an art illustration, designing logos, creating online content and even providing a voice for a Podcast intro and much more. As you might expect, gigs start at $5.
2. Design Web Logos
If you’re good with Photoshop and can work quick, you might make some decent cash with this online business. Are you a graphic designer or do you have some artistic talents that you know others are looking for? Why not make extra money for your bottom line by designing logos or other graphics for people’s websites, for their newsletters or for other print applications?
Designing web logos obviously isn’t for everyone. It will help you quite a bit if you’ve got some background in graphic design or if you’re relatively proficient in design tools like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Indesign, and Adobe Illustrator or other like products. You don’t necessarily have to have a degree in graphic arts, as long as you’re able to put together eye-pleasing designs that others will love and pay for.
3. Sell Photos Online
Digital Photography School offers several books to help you take nice pictures. Get them up on the web at a broker, or Microstock site and make extra money. It’s not as easy as that, but those are the basics.
As just one idea my friend shared with me, many people don’t have good home listing photos of the home they’re trying to sell. If you notice, many of these pictures, aside from the ones done by professional photographers, have bad lighting, show clutter, etc. If you’re good at taking pictures and have a nice camera, you might be able to sell your photo taking services to real estate agents or to people trying to sell their own home.
4. Start an Online Store
Setting up an online store is extremely easy with sites like eBay, Amazon, Etsy and CafePress. Assuming you have a product in demand, is high quality and learn how to market your site, you can begin making some serious cash. There are plenty of full-time eBay entrepreneurs out there.
5. Make Money Blogging
This isn’t quick money, but you can make decent money with a little luck and solid, consistent effort. Believe me, it can be tough and a bit time consuming, but it can be done. I started Different Blog in 2007 and since then the site has grown considerably, now viewed more than 200,000 times per month. The key to blogging is to have a long-term goal of making extra money in mind.
