Glad to see you’ve found this post; I was just going through all the clutter in one of the apps where I store my notes and ideas and came across a list I made a while ago. I quite literally sat down and thought of several hundred ways to make some extra money. By no means are these genius or revolutionary, and in fact, some of them actually have a better chance of losing your money, but here they are nevertheless – enjoy!
note: I had started writing descriptions for each idea, but I ended up giving that so most of the ideas are just listed.
develop websites for local businesses:
Go around to small business in your neighborhood that still have no online presence. The reasons for this are either because they have no idea how to make a website or they were quoted hefty prices by ‘professional’ web designers. As long as you stick to simple static designs, you can charge a few hundred per website and make some respectable earnings. The key is that you need to offer these small business inclusive hosting for their site, because most will have no idea what web hosting is. You can subscribe for reseller web hosting from nearly any web hosting provider. You can store all of your client’s sites on that one account. Host your customer’s websites and domains for a yearly fee, and earn even more passive profits!
develop and sell a smartphone app:
A few years ago, the Apple App Store was proclaimed on a daily basis as a gold rush opportunity. That’s not exactly the case anymore, but with hard work and a decent idea, you can make some good money. You’ll need a Mac computer, an iOS device to test your app on, and a developer license ($99 per year). This is just for making iOS apps, which is what I would focus in, because there is more money to be made there. Do your research to see which apps sell well, and consider your skill level. You’ll either have to start learning the computer language, Objective-C, or hire someone else to develop the app for you- which can cost a lot of money. You’ll also need a decent interface design for your app, which can be done in Photoshop, or outsourced to a designer. Find a problem you want to solve and start thinking about how it could be solved through an app. Make sure you are passionate about solving the problem, because you will find yourself spending many hours workin on readying your app for the public to download.
resell social media followers/likes:
To a certain extent, social media is the lifeblood of one’s online presence. If a business can engage many people through a Twitter account or a Facebook page, they can acquire more customers and therefore increase their sales. As a result, many brands and individuals looks to increase the number of followers and fans they have amongs all of their social media accounts. Those not willing to grow these numbers through hard work often result to paying others to do so in obscure methods. There are place online where you can buy thousands of (fake) followers, likes, and views for just a few dollars. Even though buying fake popularity is completely useless, there is no shortage of people looking to do so. You can find people who want these services, charge them tens or even hundreds of dollars, and outsource the work to websites like fiverr.com for just a few dollars. To find customers, you’ll need to do a bit more work. You can advertise your services, built a website and promote that teas, or even browse CraigsList ads. I once found a music artist who was trying to make a name for himself and posted on Craigslist that he wanted to buy followers and views for his music videos. Over the course of just a few months, I made hundreds of dollars while paying much less to outsource the work.
resell wholesale lots on eBay:
If you browse wholesale websites that offer products from sellers overseas, you can find many different things to buy in bulk. Find an interesting item that you think is interesting could sell well. Make sure there is not a lot of them listed eBay already, or the competition will hurt you profits. Once you receive the shipment, relist the items on eBay with considerable markup. Make sure to get product samples before you make large wholesale purchases. It would not be good if you recieved a shipment of unsellable goods because you were not cautious enough. The two options are to sell many items of lower value or fewer items of higher value. The former can take a lot of time, especially in shipping out the items, so stick to easily shipable items when you start out. The latter may be a better option.
hold a yard sale:
find everything around your house that you don’t want, and put it in your driveway for a day or two. You’ll have more room in your house and you may end up with a decent amount of cash. Make sure to post flyers all over your neighborhood, especially on high traffic street corners. You also want to post about your sale a number of times on craigslist. Just make sure you don’t sell anything you might regret selling later on.
shovel snow after a snowfall:
This works especially well in cities where shoveling your sidewalk is required by law. If you live in area that doesn’t have enough snowfall to justify having a snowblower, or if you’re neighborhoods has a large number of elderly people, you’re chances of doing well are even greater. Make sure you invest in a good shovel with a curved handle that relieves stree on your back. Bring lots of water with you so you’re hydrated throughout the day. When thinking of what to charge, consider the size of sidewalk; are you also going to shovel their walkway and driveway? Is it a corner lot with twice as much sidewalk? The hardest driveways to shovel are the ones that are on a downward incline towards he garage door. Remember, you can always negotiate with the owner of the house, and don’t be afraid to quote a higher price for your work. $50 may sound a like an unreasonable price, but if they have a super long driveway or a walkway that works like a maze, you may even feel you could’ve charged more.
offer yard cleanup after a big storm:
Similar to shoveling snow after a snowfall, offer your raking and cleanup services after a windy day or a big storm. It might be more difficult to find work if the neighborhood predominantly hires a lawn care service, but if you post your offering on craigslist or on flyers around town, you might find some people who are more than willing to pay. On another note, starting a lawncare service might be a better idea.
sell your services on Fiverr.com:
if you have a skill that want to offer to others around the world, consider posting it on Fiverr.com. You can offer the service for $5 and be seen by thousands of people. If you want to charge a bit more, you can have your customers pay for extras that will add up to respectable earnings. The most successful gigs on Fiverr are the ones that take little time for the seller to fulfill and have a high demand. Sellers make a good amount of money offering logo design, video testimonial, and advertising services- just to name a few.
resell services listed on Fiverr.com:
If you find a gig on fiverr that you think is very cool or is priced lower than what it’s worth, try reselling it to other people for more money. You can build an attractive website that offers the service, and simply outsource the orders to Fiverr as they come in. An easier but less profitable option is to resell the Fiverr gigs on eBay. You will not be able to have much markup, but it will be easier to sell them because of how many people browse eBay. However, be careful selling digital goods on eBay, because without proof of shipment, buyers can back out and claim refunds with no hope you getting your money back.
offer music lessons:
Do you know how to play a musical instrument well enough that you can teach others how to play? People are always interested in learning how to play popular instruments like guitar or piano and many parents will pay a lot of money so that their kids can learn. If you find more clients than you can handle, you can hire your friends who also know how to play and begin a music teaching business. Teaching others often improves your own skills, so you’ll get better the more you teach!
Are you particularly good in a certain subject of material? Offer your tutoring students to students in your area. If you live near an elementary school, ask the school if you can advertise your service to parents. Elementary school subjects don’t require much knowledge for an older student to teach, but if you want to earn money tutoring students in your own school, you should probably make sure you know the material like the back of your hand.
offer SAT/ACT tutoring:
SAT and ACT testing is one of the most important and stressful times of a student’s high school career. Parents therefore, are willing to pay quite a bit of money so that their children are prepared with the hopes of highs cores and prestigious colleges. If you scored well on these tests and think you can teach some helpful skills and strategies, offer one on one tutoring or even classes if you have enough demand for your services. Make sure you offer your tutoring in a wealthy area where parents are willing to pay anything to help their child get into a good college. Alternatively, go to less wealthy areas and offer your tutoring at lower prices to attract more clients.
sell class notes:
If you take excellent notes in your classes, you might be able to sell them to your classmates. Offer your notes just before a test and you might see some surprising profits. You could also sell hem online so students all over the country can take advantage of them. You might even get students who personally ask you to take notes for them.
sell SAT/AP/SAT II study guides:
While you are studying for these tests, write down your strategies, notes, techniques, and any of the tips you consider when taking the test. Compile a guide or even just a laminated sheet of paper full of notes and strategies. Sell them at your school and online- I wouldn’t be surprised if you got a bunch of orders just before the tests are scheduled- so long as you offer a good guide.
post affiliate links online/blogs:
If you have your own blog or website, you can post affiliate links that will earn you money when your readers/audience clicks them and buys something on the following page. You can start a website specifically to advertise one of these links, or find links related to the content you already post.
sell ad space on your blog/website:
a better option than affiliate links is sometimes plain advertising. If your website or blog has a decent sized audience, you can post Google Adsense ads that will earn you a few cents every time a reader views or clicks on the ads. You could also sell ad space directly to an interested company for a weekly or monthly rate- this is more difficult if you don’t have a large audience.
sell in-post mentions/ads on your blog/articles/writing:
Rather than having viewable ads, you might also be able to get advertisers to pay you to mention their product or service within your website or blog. This might seem like a bit of a sellout to your readers, so be careful how much you allow this.
sell featured channel or banner space on your YouTube channel:
If you have a YouTube channel with a decent amount of viewers, you can earn some money featuring other channels on your own. There is a place on every YouTube channel that allows the owner to list other channels that they like. You can have other people pay for you to put their channel there. If you are a ayouTube partner, you are also allowed to put a banner image on your channel. In this case you can feature advertising within the banner. This does require that you put some time into growing your audience, but it is another idea to monetize.
sell video shoutouts or description ads on YouTube videos:
Another way to monetize your YouTube channel is to sell shout outs within your videos. You can also have advertisers pay you to post their links in the description of your videos.
monetize your Twitter account on SponsoredTweets:
If you’re good with Twitter, you can make some good money selling your tweets! SponsoredTweets lets you register your account with your Twitter account and advertisers will pay you to tweet their message. You get to set the price depending how much you think your tweet is worth. The key is growing viral Twitter accounts that have tens of thousands of followers. Fake followers will not fool advertisers, so you’re going to have to put your thinking cap on to figure what accounts people will want to follow. I made $150 one summer from an Twitter account that was followed by nearly 10,000 fans of a popular books series. If you developed the skills to do this over and over again, not only could you make good money on SponsoredTweets, but you could probably sell the Twitter accounts for lots of money as well!
grow and sell online accounts:
Can you start Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts and post interesting and unique constant that collects thousands of followers? If so, you can sell these accounts to buyers online for good amounts of money. This is a difficult skill and will take much work, however.
sell snacks in/near/outside movie theatres:
Do you enjoy paying for snacks at the movie theatre? Well not many people do. As long as you’re sneaky and keep a low profile, you could make some good money selling snacks outside of a movie theatre- maybe even inside the theatre! I’ve never tried this and should probably add that the theatre wouldn’t be too happy if they caught on to what you were doing.
sell bicycles bells/lights/accessories:
If you live near a bike path or bicycle heavy road, you could try selling simple accessories like lights or bells.
fix bicycles locally (mobile repair service):
If you live in an area where a lot people ride bicycles, you can start a mobile bicycle repair business. Get a trailer for your bicycle and fill it with tools and spare parts. Advertise your business around your neighborhood and city- when you get a call, ride over to the person house and repair their bike on location.
flip bicycles on Craigslist:
This is something I’ve had fun and made some good pocket cash doing. The idea is to buy a bike for less than its worth and resell it for a higher price. The trick is to figure out what sells best in your area- road bikes, mountain bikes, beach cruisers? Once you know what’s worth your time, search through all of the bicycle listings on your local Craigslist. Find listings with bicycles in perfect condition or only in need minor repairs like fixing flats or replacing the chain. If the wheels are bent or the tires are rotten, it will often eat up all of your potential profits. Look for bicycles that will require more investment in terms of time rather than money. Removing rust is not too difficult, and polishing the handlebars is all too simple. When buying a bike, figure what you can safely get for it and make sure you can make enough profit to make it worth your time. For a bike worth $150 on the Craigslist market, try and invest $75 total.
restore vintage/antique bicycles:
Similar to the above idea, if you can instead buy old bicycles for low prices, invest some time and money in replacing bad parts and removing rust, then you can sell them for a nice profit. Often it’s not a good idea to reprint a vintage bicycle and you will even ruin the value by doing so. Alternatively you could completely take bike apart, give it a custom paint job, colored tires, and sell it as a custom bicycle. You might be able to even work out a deal with a local bike shop owner to sell your bikes in their store for a share of the profits.
Sell custom motorized bicycles:
You can easily buy bicycle motor kits online for little over $100. Buy a sturdy yet simple cruiser bicycle, customize it and reprint it if you want, and then install the motor. These motorized bicycles get great gas mileage and can be a great and stylish form of transportation. Sell them on Craigslist- just make sure they’re legal in your area before you start building.
make and sell handmade phone sleeves/folios:
As long as there are phones and tablets, there will be a demand for cases and sleeves to store these devices. Take advantage of this by making your own phone and tablet sleeves. All you need is a sewing machine and som material to makem out of. You can sell them to your friends, online, or even in local shops. If they sell well enough, you can have them made in bulk to be sold in larger stores.
invest your money in the stock market
As long as you accept the level of Fisk involved, there is money to be made investing in the stock market. Make sure to do your research and understand the companies you invest in. I make sure that I know how the company makes money, how other investors feel about the company, what news is for the market and the company, etc.
sell cheap but cool sunglasses when sunny outside:
If it’s a super sunny day, go to the beach, or even just down the street- maybe even a flea market- and sell cheap sunglasses. You can get neat ones online for less than $2 a pair, sell them for $5-$10. I bought 50 pairs and made half my investment back after just selling a few of them.
sell other people’s things on eBay for them:
Many people have things they would like to sell and part with but have no idea how. Offer to to sell these items for them as long as you get a cut of the profit. Find these people and sell their items on eBay for a cut of the sale. Make sure you charge them for the eBay fees and the shipping costs. To make the most of your time, try and stick to higher values items that will yield the most for you to keep.
sell water/drinks on the street when it’s hot outside:
When people are stuck in traffic on a hot summer day, they’ll be more than happy to pay a buck for a bottle of water. Make sure you check the legality, then buy water bottles in bulk, a cooler with ice, and see how much you can sell in the heat of the day!
sell sled/snow toys at local hill after it snows:
The theme here seems to be taking advantage of the weather- if you find your local hill covered in snow, take a bunch of sleds and sell them or rent them to kids you want to have fun sledding. Tip- try and demonstrate that your sleds are the fastest on the slope!
charge $ to make YouTube demos/reviews :
Another way to make money through YouTube is to create product/software review or demo videos. Companies want publicity for their products and are often willing to reward you with free sample of their product or even money if you have a large enough audience. Make sure you make your reviews 100% honest or else your viewers will become less interested.
make $ as a YouTube partner:
Quite simply, the easiest way to make money on YouTube is just to allow Google to put ads on your videos so that you get paid when people watch your content.
If your street has good exposure, put up noticeable signs advertising a car wash in your driveway. Charge a fair price and do the job quickly so you clear up your driveway space. A better option might be to rent out a corner of a parking lot for a few hours and hold the car wash there instead. Check the legality of this in your area first. Anther idea is to run a mobile car wash. Have customers call you and travel to their house to wash the car in their own driveway. Use their hose and bring your own bucket, soap, and sponges. You can even offer to wax their car. As long as you stick to the neighborhood, you can rise your equipment around on a bicycle trailer to save money on gas.
collect soda cans for recycling:
You might feel like a hobo when you go to turn them in, but it’s easy to do and doesn’t take that much time. Make sure your family never throws out cans or water bottles. Save them all in garbage bags. When you’ve filled up enough bags to make the trip worth it, bring them down to your supermarket and put all the bottles and cans in the recycling machines. You’ll probably end up with only $5-$15, but it’s still money you didn’t have before. If you’re in need of more, you can always collect cans around the neighborhood by either asking neighbors to save up,cans for you to recycle, or by (illegally) picking out of their garbage bins). Make sure to take off all the can tabs because once you have enough of those you can sell them on eBay for a few bucks too!
make your own jewelry:
If you enjoy crafting and have an eye for fashion, you can make some money by creating your own jewelry. My sister makes colorfully patterned string bracelets in her spare time and sells them on consignment at a local gift shop. She checks in once a month and usually has $50-$60 waiting for her especially during months when there are a lot of tourists passing through. It’s good money for something she only spends a few hours on every now and then. If you’re a bit more serious, you can sell your jewelry online or even do custom pieces.
win the lottery:
Hey, you never know… although really this is not worth the gamble.
Yes, poker is gambling, but there is skill involved. If you practice enough and get very good at winning hands, you can earn some pocket money playing online poker. Just make sure to understand the risks involved. I wouldn’t rely on this for income if you’re just starting out, but it can turn into income once you’re experienced
set up a phone charger in the park and accept donations:
Here’s a crazy idea- go to a popular park or even a bus stop, anywhere people are waiting, and set up a phone charger either by solar or battery power. Let people plug in while they’re sitting down and let them put some change in a tip jar if they’re feeling generous.
sell a list like this:
People love lists, and if you have good ideas to share, people may pay to see them.
search for and sell scrap metal: if you have a pickup truck and a scrap yard nearby, you might be able to go out hunting for scrap metal. You can look for metal thrown in the woods, put on the curb, thrown in a dumpster. Spread the word that you’ll pick up for free any scrap metal the Pete want to throw away. The earnings will depend on what type of metals you find.
find treasures with a metal detector:
metal detecting may be more of a hobby than an income, but there’s always the chance you maybe come across something valuable. If you have fun doing it, anything you find is better than nothing.
sell flowers on Mother’s/Valentine’s Day:
Just as I advised to take advantage of the weather, you should also take advantage of any and all holidays. On the days leading up to and on Mother’s Day, sell flowers on the side of the road or on Craigslist. People always wait till the last minute, so you might be able to do so,ex good business if you make it easy for someone driving by to purchase some flowers quickly.
social media services for local business:
In the same way many small businesses don’t have a website, many don’t have any social media accounts. Even if they do, they are often ill kept and unattended to. Offer to maintain these accounts for a monthly fee. Keep their customers interested with regular pictures, facts, promotions, and more.
sell old magazines on eBay:
I recently discovered that people buy old issues of common magazines for descents amount money on eBay. I knew that collectible magazines were popularly sold online, but depending on the magazine, you can take a bulk lot of old magazinesand watch it sell for a few bucks over the cost of the flat rate USPS box that it fits into. It’s just a few bucks, but it takes just a half hours worth of work. You could promote your idea around your neighborhood and have neighbors save old magazines for you rather than throwing them out. Many people save issues of a certain magazines for a while and then throw them out when the pile gets too tall. You’ll see them tied up in a bundle and put out on the curb. You can take the bundle just as it is, list it on eBay and stick it in a flare rate box.
set up a pinball route:
Pinball is slowly coming back and many people are still having a hard time finding places to play. Invest in a few fun to play machines and put them on location in bars, restaurants, corporate offices, and anywhere you think they would do well in. Split the revenue with the owner of the establishment. It will take a while to earn back the cost of the machine, and you’ll have to know how to repair the machine in case it breaks down. Make sure you choose good locations and fun machines that will attract the maximum amount of players. Instead of pinball machines, you could also set up a vending machine route or arcade machines such as the claw machine. I would stay away from retro video game machines like Pacman and Asteroids. They might look cool and are inexpensive, but people can play them on their consoles and phones and are not willing to put quarters in anymore. Gumball machines are also a tough sell nowadays
