1.) eBay. You can make a lot of money with you old and unused items with eBay. You can sell your stuff worldwide on eBay, and you can sometimes make big money doing it. Antiques and collectables that are gathering dust on your closet shelves and in boxes in the attic could bring premium dollars on this online marketplace. You can also sell used name brand and designer clothes and accessories when you get tired of them to make money online.
2.) Craigslist. If you live in an urban area, there is a good chance that you have a local page on craigslist.org. You can make money with this site in a lot of ways. Not only could you find a job or gig to do, but you could also sell your stuff or offer your services here.
3.) Start a blog. There are a lot of ways to make money with a blog, and you need your own blog if you want a piece of some of this income. Once you start your blog, you can add advertisement, join affiliate programs, ask for donations, do paid posts and all sorts of other stuff that can make you some good money.
4.) Sponsored Tweets. You can make money for Tweeting. If you have a good Twitter following, you can sign up with one of the few programs that run sponsored Tweet programs. Depending on the advertiser and the amount of Twitter followers you have, you can make anywhere from a penny a Tweet to thousands of dollars. You may not be able to command the highest rate unless you are a celeb, but even a dollar to write a few words about how much you love a new soda could make it worthwhile.
5.) Freelancing. There are many sites online that connect employers and freelancers. Many of the freelancers on these sites are writers and folks who do web work, but there are all sorts of work out there that you can find and do online. Some of these sites include elance.com and guru.com.
6.) Start your own website. You don’t have to be web savvy. There are plenty of turnkey sites that let you open a store. You market your site and pick and choose what you want to sell, and the folks who you bought the site from take care of everything else. You won’t make as much as you may if you did it all yourself, but you can make a chunk of change this way.
7.) Write and eBook. If you have a story idea or knowledge in a particular subject area, you can write an eBook. Amazon and other sites are making it even easier for writers who want to self-publish and sell their books.
8.) Flip websites. You can buy domains, often on the cheap and sell them for more money. Not every domain you buy will be a winner, but if you follow current events, you have a good chance of scooping up a potentially profitable domain. Buying domains with the name of an up and coming political candidate or that are similar to a hot new website, you can make some extra money.
9.) Buy and sell stock. Online investing can make you big bucks if done right. The good news is that anyone can invest and potentially profit, but the bad news is that you could end up losing money. This doesn’t’ offer guaranteed profit, but it is just one more way to make money online.
