But whilst online ‘money making opportunities’ are plentiful – can you actually make money with them?
How do you avoid the ever so plentiful amount of making money opportunities scams?
This post will provide you with an overview of some of the most popular worn and tested online money making opportunities out there. Then you can decide for yourself.
Lets start off with some of the most popular ‘side hustles’ and once we get down and dirty we look into some apperently ‘BIGGER MONEY‘ opportunities.
Starting with some of the ‘tried and tested’ –
Sell you stuff on Ebay or Gumtree – It works.
Go take a look in your shed or loft and pull out whatever’s there.
You may be surprised as some old trinkets can fetch thousands.
But it’s limited – be honest.
Ebay and Gumtree can be used much more effectively if you load up on a truck load of ‘must haves’ and flog them at the right time.
Buy sledges in the summer (hoping for a bitterly cold winter) and sunglasses in the winter (hoping for a scorching summer).
Everyone’s a winner!
There are companies that will pay you to take surveys.
You simply sign up and away you go. Some believe data is the new gold and it’s definitely a very valuable commmodity to have (especially if you work in a behavourial insight team!)
Just fill in some details in between watching daytime TV for an extra bit of ‘bunce’ each month.
Lovely – if you just slouch about on the couch.
An even easier way to generate a bit of extra income is to add Qmee to your browser – then when you click on a search result, you’ll earn money.
Yes, it’s really that simple.
Just keep in mind you’re allowing a recording of all your browser history and the data that’s taken away is sold.
But what do you care?
‘They’ know everything about you anyway, just from looking at your Facebook account.
Set up a Blog/Website
Setting up a website and/or blog is a sure way to generate money online!
Write good content and even if you can’t spell you can use tools such as Grammarly to get you going.
If you’re stuck for an idea check out this Guide to Setting up a Website Blog.
Once your up and running (and importantly getting website/blog traffic) it may be worth using Google adsense to make some money, but keep in mind you need a lot of traffic (visitors).
And when your propellers are really going?
Like the sound of your own voice?
Then podcasting could be for you.
If you’ve got something to say then say it.
Build up a legion of followers and then boom – they’ll be desperately counting down the minutes until your next podcasting show, just ask Joe Rogan.
You really only need to create one good quality podcast per week and if you hit a sweet spot companies will flock to you so they can advertise.

Sell your photos
If you have photography skills and a good eye for what is in demand then selling photos to stock websites such as Shutterstock or Photoshelter and even Getty Images could be for you.
If you’re good looking then why not sell pictures of yourself?
Stock photography websites are like huge libraries of images that people/companies can search through. It could be as easy as a picture of a delicious dish, an animal or a magnificent landscape captured at dusk.
The potential is really as unlimited as your imagination, or your own good looks.
A business model in which entrepreneurs start an online business and sell products to their buyers without ever actually having to stock the items themselves.
Sounds a ‘bit out there’? But it’s true!
When a dropshipping store sells a product, it purchases the item from a third party and has it shipped directly to a customer.
Sounds too easy to be true? Well it is!
It’s a much lower risk option to getting started as you won’t get lumbered with stock.
Finding a legitimate wholesaler may be a bit tricky so read this (before typing in ‘Wholesaler for dropshipping!’ (link or info from spotify article
Money Making Opportunities – Trading online
Yep! Whether it’s cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency or getting into some daily ‘punting’ of commodities or indexes, you will readily come across platforms, trading systems and of course advisors to assist you.
What can be easier than simply buying and selling?
Keep in mind that only a very small percentage consistently make money, though.
So ignore what anybody else says.
There’s been an explosion of interest with trading and many believe there’s more of a ‘level playing field’ these days.
Personally, I don’t think this. Instead technology has enabled a much smaller group to manipulate all the markets to a much higher degree.
You can even just copy successful traders via some platforms.

Increasingly the world is becoming a bit messed up for large numbers of people.
As a consequence there has been an explosion in life coaching.
It this could be coaching in relation to eating, finance, fitness, work, entrepreneurship, meditation, stress management – you name it.
The overarching mantra of life coaching is:
Help others live their best lives
So this starts from the position that somebody needs help and they may not be living the best possible life they could be – a huge market then.

What are you waiting for?
As mentioned at the start there are plenty of money making opportunities out there – and plenty of scams.
It’s important to do your homework and never part with money on the premise of a get rich scheme or time pressured sale.
Just don’t do it.
