A Few Unusual Ways To Make Money Online

Money… we all want more, we never seem to make enough. Over the years since the credit crunch in 2008, wages seem to have gone down, and prices seem to have gone up. It is not unusual at all for someone in a standard paying job to still not be able to make ends meet. Even if you can, there is little left for treats in this economy. Fortunately, there are now a number of different ways you can make money online. Nearly everyone owns a home computer or a laptop, and if you are connected to the world wide web, you can easily put this to use to make yourself a few extra pennies each month.

Online surveys

Although they are never going to be a way to make you rich, online surveys are still a good little way to earn money online. Most of the surveys only take a few minutes, and if you log on whenever you get spare time, you can easily earn a little bit extra at the end of each month.

As well as paid surveys, you can also get paid to search through specific engines, or click on certain links. Again, this is not a large amount, but it is still a nice little supplement to your income.

Online trading

It all seems a bit fancy and confusing doesn’t it? online trading, really? Well online trading is something that is accessible to everyone with an internet connection and some money to invest. Thanks to websites like CMC markets, you can easily get started straight away. Gone are the days when you need to make massive deposits to get into trading, and you can deposit a small amount while you are starting. Another great benefit to trading online is, unlike trading with a stockbroker, you can start off by practicing first without using real money.

This gives you a great insight into the stock market and how it works, and you can take a risk-free approach to learn the ropes.

Get paid to write

There are many websites that allow you to register and let you get paid for writing online. You do not necessarily need a qualification in English or journalism to be able to register. There are websites like Textbroker and Greatcontent that will let you register purely on the basis of your ability.

Before you register, you will be asked to write a sample article which is then rated. Going forward, all you need to do is simply log on, and pick an article to write out of your rating. After this, the client will decide whether they do or don’t want to accept your article and if they do you will get paid. Most of the online writing brokers pay weekly via PayPal, so it is also easy to access your funds.

Play games

What? Playing games that pay real money if you win? That’s gambling, isn’t it?! It’s true that most of the games people play to earn are gambling games, however, there are many that don’t involve bingo or casino at all. The e-sports industry is a big and growing scene that is looking for gamers who will compete in tournaments for the chance to win prizes. For anyone who considers themself a pro, this could be a revenue option made just for you.

Reviewing music

This one really isn’t too good to be true, you really can get paid to review music. With websites like slicethepie, you can register and get paid a small amount for reviewing the music of new bands and artists. For anyone up and coming in the music world, constructive feedback is imperative, so not only will you get remunerated for your feedback, but you will also be helping to shape their work fr the future.

Sell photos

This is another one that sounds too good to be true, but there really are websites where you can sell your photos online. Just searching the phrase in a search engine will bring you a number of results, and they basically work by either letting your photos go for a fixed price, or for the highest price in a bid for them.

Even if you are not a professional, and you do not have a professional camera, you can still sell any pictures you think are worthwhile online. Many people need photos of many different things for online articles and blog posts, and if they are buying them that means they also buy the rights. Even something as simple as a picture of your household pet can sell on photo websites, so get snap-happy.
