  2. Thanks Dale, I never thought to use a number of those methods. I find that the best way for me is to complete surveys. I have been doing this for about a year now for about an hour each day.

    • hi Dale, hubby also electrician and I am employed, but always looking for something to make extra cash with kids and all. I have already registered on freelancer and placed a bid, now I am waiting. I wanted to do surveys in addition, but it seems like the option is not availible for South Africa. I can understand that some products not availible here, so we cannot give an opinion on a product we do not know, but there must be ones that we can do as well. I found a surveyza, but my computer immediately flashed security alert, so that is a no go. Do you have a ligit one that South Africans also can register on. the global name one, gives a blank screen.

  3. Ebay/amazon sales is a good way to make money there is no cost to you at all just time.

    All you do is sign up on amazon and sign up on ebay

    Look at prices of stuff on amazon and then on ebay notice ebay is around 15% more expensive or generally even more

    Meaning you can make money…

    You don’t buy any thing to even sell

    You simple find something that sells when on ebay and is cheaper on amazon

    For example a drill may be £75 on ebay but it’s £52 on amazon

    So you advertise for sale on eBay a drill for £65 you are £10 cheaper than every one else so people will buy from you

    As soon as you hear that till noise on your phone it means you have sold on ebay

    So what you do is go on your eBay and paypal withdraw the money from the sale and then go on amazon and order the drill with the buyers money
    Then ship it directly to the buyer on amazon

    Look for items with free postage (saves money)

    You need to be aware of eBay listing fees and sales commissions but as long as you work with good margins on prices you can make money doing this
    It takes a lot of time and effort though as you have to constantly keep an eye on prices on both websites and adjust as required

    The reason it works is because automatically 60%+ of people go to ebay when they want to buy something cheap most don’t know about amazon or don’t realise it’s cheaper

    There is a hell of a lot of people doing this

    Think back have you ever ordered anything on ebay and it arrived in amazon packaging ??? This is how I found out about it

    I tried it and it worked but I got bored of the price checks 3 times a day at least and I didn’t look at the eBay fees properly so I’d set my margins too small so after fees a weeks work only got me like £30 but if you put enough time in you can get a good passive income from it just be careful

    Don’t go for stuff on limited time sales on amazon as you will lose out when the sale ends and your price gos up

    I’m sure with some coding knowledge you could automate the price check and adjustments but yeh

    Look into it, it’s real and it works and it literally costs you nothing
    🙂 enjoy and happy ebaying

    I used my profits from first month to get amazon prime for the year (free films and tv programs on demand+ free next day delivery on a lot of items meaning you can charge extra on ebay for next day delivery and if they don’t pay the extra you can choose slower delivery and get music vouchers and other cool stuff 🙂 )

    • Jamie that’s genuinely awesome stuff – thanks for letting me in on that. Truth is I’ve seen an awful lot of people lately launching ‘Amazon’ businesses but I just haven’t got round to looking into it to see what’s actually going on. I will definitely take some time out to research this further and do a proper write up on it, giving you the credit of course for bringing it to my attention 🙂 Thanks again!

  7. Hello,
    Thanks for those tips. They are really good and i have liked them, I would live to try atleast one but there are some strings attached to online money making most especially when it comes to getting piad after work……… “Cash out”.
    But anyway my email is open if I can share help with you on this.

    • Hi Jasim, thanks for your comment. I’m a little confused as to what you mean about the “strings attached”? If you’d care to expand I’d be happy to offer some help.

    • Hi Doris – thanks for your comment. I know there are fewer opportunities available in Nigeria and it can be difficult to find them however there is still plenty, and quite a few of them are listed on this page. Have you taken a look at the Freelancer work? I’m almost certain you can withdraw funds from there in Nigeria.

  17. This by far is the best list on how to make money online!

    I’ve used AdSense for years with a lot of success, however recently my finalized earnings have decreased due to invalid click activity (Googles algorithm is always changing!). Slowly I’m making my move away from AdSense and I’m now making money with binary options after coming across a certain method. I will now look to combine this with some of the additional approaches to making money online that you’ve listed in this article so that I can also achieve my dream of being self-employed and financially secure.

    Thank you.

    • Hi Justin, thanks for your comment. Adsense can certainly be very lucrative – and it provides a very easy solution for webmasters to be able to make money from their websites. I’m afraid though I’m not to keen on the sound of the binary options – I mean of course it’s great to hear that you’re making money from them but believe me that’s very rare – and it’s also very unstable. At the end of the day when you strip it down binary options is basically just a gamble, there are no real trends to it it’s just pot luck. If I was you I’d personally look into building something more stable – maybe try increasing the popularity of your website to boost that Adsense income?

  18. Hi, after reading all the postings, i would like to try. Am staying in Singapore. Does those options provided by you workable in Singapore?

    Reply
    • Hello – I’m afraid I don’t have the answer to that question, but why don’t you have a look through the list & let me know? I’m sure there are plenty of other people from Singapore who are probably wondering the same thing too. With over 72 methods I’m confident that there will be some in there that work from Singapore.

  19. Indeed, I use some of these and all have worked. Fiverr and Clikbank did a good job for extra cash, but, the best thing was establishing a website where I sell my own info products. Money doesn’t fall from trees. It is earned with hard work no matter what method. That’s what most people don’t understand. Cheers!

  20. Awesome article Dale. I see a lot of hard work has gone into this. Guys like you who help people can never go broke ‘cos good things will always come back to you. Like Zig Zigler puts it: “You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want”. Keep the good work up.

    I just got back from an Entrepreneurs’ bootcamp where some highly respected names in online businesses made various presentations one of which I bought into.

    Cheers mate and keep up the good work.

  21. You can make money using groupon also. You can easily create a e course using a site like teachables and get it publish on groupon and they do all the hardwork there seems to be loads of people doing this now just have a look at online course on groupon, and now groupon has 260 million active users so its a big market.

  22. Hello Dale, i want to thank you for 72 money making tips you provided. I really appreciate it, but please can you give more explanation on (11 No risk matched betting) because i am into football betting. Thanks

    Reply
    • Hello Precious, thanks for your comment & praise towards the article – I’m really glad it’s helped you. Matched betting is a process whereby you take advantage of bookmakers introductory offers in order to “beat the bookies” so to speak. You basically cover all the odds of losing so that regardless of the result you still come in with a profit to at least some amount. It’s quite a long-winded process and that’s only a very brief insight, but coincidentally I am actually in the middle of putting something together to explain this in more detail. As soon as I complete it I’ll send you an email and let you know that it’s done so that you can come back & learn more about it.

  23. hi, this is really great post and a very useful information, i heared a lot about the facebook, twitter,instagram online making money, some companies need help, but i do not know how to access or reach this companies, will you help me on this Dale?

    Reply
    • Hey Welhilm, from your comment I assume you mean you’d like to help companies promote their brands on social media channels, such as Facebook, Twitter & Instagram? There’s certainly a lot of money to be made in this area, but you should also be aware that there’s a lot of competition so you would need to really have a unique selling point to make yourself stand out. An easy way to find companies to reach out too would be to simply search local companies in your area & then check to see if they already have a presence on social media – if they don’t then you could reach out and offer them your help, for a charge. Hope that helps.

  24. Great piece, I have been mystery shopping for a travel company for some time. I get paid to visit travel accommodation and vet it. It is self-employed like most mystery shopping jobs. Thought I’d share as you can make some extra cash in your spare time.

  25. Thanks for the great idea’s. I personally use Affiliate Marketing as a way to make money online. I started off in my spare time and have now grown it to make it my full time business. It is very scaleable, that is why I like it.

    If you need extra cash you can work Affiliate Marketing, need more, put more time into it and earn more. The sky is the limit with Affiliate Marketing when done right.

    What option you go with depends upon what you are looking to achieve, how much you are looking to make and in what time frame, then the most important thing to do is get started, lots of people do not simply get started and take action, even if you are not 100% sure on what you are doing, start and learn as you go, but the best advice I can give is just get started and go for it! 🙂

    You also mention making money playing games, I wrote a blog post about a carpet cleaner who makes over 5K a month, playing games… that was some time ago he was making that, so I would imagine now he is earning much more, just goes to show what is achievable when you put your mind to something.

    • Hi Claire, thanks for your comment. Affiliate marketing is certainly an excellent way to build an income online, and is without doubt one of the most popular methods too. I do agree with your point on people taking action – many people like the concept of making money online but they are not truly willing to put in the time & effort that’s required to take it to any real level above a few extra bucks a month. It’s a shame really because the opportunities are definitely there but hey ho, each to their own 🙂

    • Thanks for the comment Keith & I’m glad to hear your daughter is putting one of the methods into action, hope it works out well for her 🙂

    Great list. I am a Survey Taker, Singer and entrepreneur. I would like more tips on how to freelance write if you could help with this that would be great! I have some college but no degree but enjoy writing poetry, songs and articles. Is there a way to submit samples with no experience? Thank you.

    • Hi Natasha, come to think of it I haven’t actually covered freelance writing a great deal on this blog – but now that you’ve mentioned it I’ll definitely put something together as it is indeed a fantastic way to earn extra cash online. I appreciate that won’t really be of much assistance to you right now, but what I can suggest is that you check out my post on starting a blog & making money blogging because if you enjoy writing then a blog is a fantastic place to showcase your work.
