1.) Take surveys
Taking surveys in your spare time can be a great way to earn some extra dough fast.

Here are some great survey companies to get you started:

Survey Junkie – Redeem points for payouts via gift cards and/or PayPal.
American Consumer Opinion – Easy sign up and well-managed.
Vindale Research – Pays up to $75 a survey.
Ipsos – Simple and easy to use.

2.) Share your Amazon purchase history
Download the ShopTracker app from Harris Poll and help the company track the products Amazon customers purchase most. All you need to do is share the details of your recent Amazon purchase.

The company will ask for info about the purchase, such as the order date, product title, category, ISBN number, release date, condition, seller, list price per unit, quantity and several other details.

Get paid up to $36 per year for doing this small amount of work.

3.) Become a transcriptionist
Are you a quick typist or a fast talker? Then you may want to consider working as a transcriptionist. Sign up for a program like Scribie and get paid to transcribe documents and movies at $5-$20 per audio hour.

The work is extremely flexible and can be done anytime on your schedule. Most files are only six minutes long or less, so the work is interesting and doesn’t get too tedious. You can choose to type the documents or movies, or to dictate them into a talk-to-text program. Plus, there’s an option of getting promoted and earning more once you become more adept at transcribing.

And as a bonus, you’ll learn new things every day!

4.) Monetize your blog or website with Google AdSense
Google ads are all over the internet; now it’s time to make them work for you! If you have a website or a blog (and if you don’t, you can build one in short order) work on monetizing with Google AdSense. You’ll only earn pennies when you start out, but if you work hard at increasing the traffic to your site or blog, it can really help you pull in the big bucks.

Google AdSense is insanely easy to set up. Sign up for a free Google AdSense account and you’ll receive a unique setup code to copy to your site or blog. Once you’ve done that, Google does the rest, tracking your page views, traffic flow and earnings.

Worried about maintenance fees and upkeep work? There are none! Google does it all. That’s why incorporating Google AdSense in your site or blog is such a no-brainer. It’s just a few minutes of your time and then you’ll start earning extra money for doing absolutely nothing.

Of course, the more traffic you draw, the more you’ll make off Google AdSense. The potential to earn an extra few hundred, or even thousands of dollars, via Google will push you to work at drawing more traffic to your content. While it will take work to get there, just imagine pulling in an extra $4,000 a month!

5.) Become an online consultant
Are you an expert in your field? Do your coworkers constantly seek you out for guidance and advice? Why not market your expertise and earn some extra money at the same time?

Online consulting is the perfect side hustle for natural teachers and counselors. You’ll be working with what you’re good at, creating your own hours and schedule and setting up your own pay scale.

You can advertise your services on a public forum like Craigslist, or set up a free profile on Clarity.fm. People will then be able to look you up on their own. Once word spreads and your name is out there, you can raise your rates and earn more in less time.

Let your talents pay off!

6.) Sell your stuff on eBay
Yes, we know, eBay is the dinosaur of online commerce, but even dinosaurs have their days. The next time you want to throw out an unused piece of junk, a defunct device or an ancient gadget, skip the trash can and sell it on eBay instead. The auction platform guarantees you’ll get the best price for your junk and the site is fully secure. Why not make money off your garbage?

The internet has changed the world forever. Use it to earn extra cash and turn your financial world around!

How to Make Your eBay Business Profitable

Steps to profitable eBay auctions

Whether you’re looking458666515 for a venue to sell your handmade earrings or you just need to get rid of some of those miscellaneous objects laying around the house, eBay may be of some assistance. eBay, a website that allows others to either list items to sell or buy other people’s items, can help you make a profit off essentially anything you’re looking to get rid of.

However, selling an item on eBay is not artless. With any type of moneymaking outlet, there are a set of rules you must consider to make a decent profit. Follow these steps when listing items on eBay:

Take good pictures – and plenty of them. The photo is what the buyer sees first, so naturally, that’s what ultimately makes them take a closer look at the item. Take as many detailed photos as possible from all different angles to be sure the buyer knows precisely what it looks like. Some photo-taking tips include taking it on a digital camera (instead of your phone), take it against a clean backdrop and avoiding using a stock photo.

“Buyers want to see the actual item you are selling,” says Justin Hartenstein, founder of Advanced Automotive Concepts in Metairie, LA.

Write detailed descriptions. Once you draw them in with the photo, they’ll want to make sure they know for sure what they’re purchasing. Make sure the listing is as accurate as possible, especially its condition. For example, if it’s a book you’re selling, be sure to note its tear on the cover or if it’s a shirt, discuss its loose thread on the upper right shoulder. These are things that sellers often overlook or opt not to share with buyers, which can cause issues later on, like the buyer wanting a refund or leaving negative feedback.

Build your reputation. When you sell an item, the buyer has the option to give you positive or negative feedback regarding their experience with you. Make sure that you have a few positive feedbacks before you start selling seriously.

“If you’re new to eBay, trust is everything,” explains Jody Rogers, president of Beachcombers in Altamonte Springs, Florida. If that’s the case, you might want to perform some small purchases before diving into the big ones. People may automatically write you off if you have no feedbacks, especially if someone else (with many positive feedbacks) is selling the same item you are.

Check completed listings. When determining how much to list your item for, always check completed listings for the actual selling price, as well as the listings that are current. You’ll often hear, “Wow, this item is listed for hundreds or thousands of dollars!” People can list their items for any price they pull out of the sky, but it’s the price that it actually sells for that counts. Checking these listings will help you establish a reasonable price. Note that if your prices are too high, buyers may choose to buy from someone else.

Keep a trend. It’s best to sell items that are similar and within the same niche.

“If you make it easy for people to buy something, they will want to buy more from you — and you have to have related merchandise in stock,” says Angie Cash, a stay-at-home mom who’s been selling on eBay for years. “So, for example, if you’re selling collectibles, you should also carry the display racks, books and other accessories those particular collectors will want to have.”

Pay attention to postage. Investing in a good postage scale is one way to do this. Weigh your item with all shipping materials and add enough for handling to pay eBay’s commission, plus the cost of the shipping materials. That way, you’re not incurring any undue fees. Also, purchasing postage through eBay or PayPal is less expensive than the post office. In addition, you should use priority mail when possible as this allows you to get free shipping materials and carrier pickups.
