How to Create Extra Income at Home
Earning extra money from the comfort of your home gives you a way to make your spare time pay off and put some cash in your pocket. When you look for ways to make extra income, avoid offers that require you to pay a fee or buy something to get started. These are often scammers looking to make some extra income off of your desire to do so, too.
Get creative and offer your services on sites such as Fiverr (https://www.fiverr.com/), where you make $5 each time someone buys from you. You can get paid for everything from drawing a picture or singing a jingle to making a small personalized item. Setting up your ad is free. Just create a description of what you do and upload photos and videos if you have any available. Fiverr pays you via PayPal after the customer pays for your services.
If you enjoy making craft items, head to craft-oriented sites such as Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/) and ArtFire (http://www.artfire.com/) to sell what you make. Both sites offer tools to set up a webpage that showcases your work. ArtFire charges a monthly fee but no commissions when you sell an item. Etsy charges a small fee for each craft you list and also takes a small percentage of each craft you sell.
Give Your Opinion
Turn your interest in sharing your opinion into cash by completing surveys on the Internet for money. Sign up for free on survey websites, such as Mysurvey.com (https://www.mysurvey.com/) and iPoll (http://www.surveyhead.com/), and get paid for each survey you complete.
Look around your home for junk and collectibles other people might be willing to pay for. If you find enough items, hold a garage sale at your home. You can also sell items on eBay (http://www.ebay.com/) or create a free classified ad on Craigslist (http://www.craigslist.org) to attract buyers.
Once you sign up for a free seller’s account on eBay, you fill out its template for each item you want to sell. You then add a thorough, honest description of the item and upload photos that show its condition and features. If you auction the item, you must decide how many days the auction runs. Alternatively, you can sell your item without any bidding. Besides a small insertion fee, eBay also takes a percentage of the total amount paid for your item with fees based on the category in which the item was listed. Payments are sent by buyers to your PayPal account.
