7 Ways To Make Spare Time Cash

Do you want to make some extra cash in your spare time but don’t know where to start?  Don’t think you have enough time to do it?  In this post I will show you 7 Ways To Make Spare Time Cash.

Sell Stuff

This is one of the easiest places to start as we all have stuff that we don’t need.  It is surprising what actually sells and there are plenty of places to sell things.

Most people have accounts with eBay and Amazon and these are both great sites to sell your unwanted items.

One thing you need to remember though is that with eBay and Amazon you will get charged a selling fee and Paypal fees etc, so always factor these costs when deciding if these sites are your best option for your item.

If you don’t have an eBay account you can sign up for free here.

To start selling on Amazon click here.

If you don’t want to pay any costs or your item is quite bulky you could try selling it through sites such as Gumtree or Schpock.   These are great for selling locally and are free of charge.

There are also lots of selling pages on Facebook that are free to list your items and have no selling fees.

Sell Your Skills

Most people can do things that some others can’t do.  This means that any skill you have might be useful to someone else.

Once you have decided on your skill you can use it to make that spare time cash.

So what skills do you have?

Maybe you are good at graphic design.  You could use this skill to design logo’s for business and website owners.  Or if you are good at writing you could write blog posts.

There are lots of skills that we don’t always think we can make money out of but thanks to the internet you can make money out of almost anything that you are good at.

Probably the best site to use to sell your skills is Fiverr.

At Fiverr you can sell almost any skill and you will be surprised at the stuff that is on there.  Anything from website design to people who will paint a message on their body and dance in the jungle (yes that is on there!).

Virtually any service can be sold on Fiverr.  To see everything that’s on there take a look here.

Cashback Sites

I have mentioned cashback sites before in the blog post Make Money Doing Nothing but they are one of the easiest ways to earn spare time cash as you don’t have to do anything that you weren’t going do do anyway.

Whenever you make a purchase online just sign in to your cashback site and receive some money back.  How easy is that?

There are lots of cashback sites around but the one I use is Quidco.

They have lots of retailers on their site and you can make hundreds of pounds a year without spending any money you weren’t going to spend anyway.

If you haven’t got a Quidco account you can sign up for free here.

Rewards Sites

Rewards Sites are websites that reward you for performing a certain task.  These tasks could be filling in surveys, watching videos, searching the web or buying from one of their promoted retailers.

One of the rewards sites that I use is Swagbucks.   This site awards points for each task you complete and these points can be exchanged for gift cards or cash to Paypal.

These sites won’t earn you a fortune but can be a fun way the make a little extra cash.

Sign up to Swagbucks here.

Another reward site that I often use is Qmee. This site offers you opportunities to make money from surveys or even browsing the web.

The best thing about Qmee is there are no cash out limits so you can withdraw your earnings to Paypal immediately.

Make a Kindle Book

If you have a talent for writing you could write a Kindle Book.  If you have a good knowledge of a subject or you have a great story that would make an interesting book then it could be a profitable sideline.

Amazon allows you to upload your book to their site so you can sell it in the Kindle download section.

There is no cost to upload your book and you receive a percentage of the selling price.

Once your book is for sale you then have a great passive income stream.

Visit Amazon for more information on Kindle Books.

Start a Youtube Channel

If you are of an outgoing nature and love being on camera then you might fancy starting your own Youtube Channel.

Youtube is now one of the biggest websites around and generates huge amounts of advertising revenue.  When you have your own channel you can monetize your videos with advertising. 

The more views you get the more revenue you earn.

To monetize your channel you need to have at least 4000 watch hours on your videos and 1000 subscribers.

There are videos for all interests and Youtube Channels are very popular with gamers who stream themselves playing and reviewing games and some earn millions by attracting huge amounts of subscribers.  Gamers aren’t the only Youtube stars though, so whatever your interest you will probably find something you can make videos about.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing is a great way to earn passive income thanks to Social Media and easy website creation.

All you need is to find a suitable affiliate program and tell all you social media followers about it.  If they buy the product or service through your link then you get a commission.

You could also build a website to add your affiliate links to.  If you have a blog for example you can monetize it with links to products that match the subject of your blog.

If you are building a website you will need a domain name and hosting which can be purchased quite cheaply.  You can find some great domain and hosting discounts here.

There are lots of companies that offer affiliate programs including Amazon. You can also join an affiliate network such as Shareasale that will give you access to hundreds of affiliate programs.

So find some suitable affiliate programs and start earning.
