You can make a lot of money online without having a crazy expensive education. Here are 32 ways to make extra cash that don’t require special training. Some of these methods are a little more involved than others, so you’ll need to set up some systems and determine how willing you are to work for it.
Sell Your Photos On The Web
You’ve probably heard of people earning a living from taking photos and then developing them into digital prints. Well, you can do the same thing! All you need are a DSLR camera (or similar device that can shoot in RAW format) and a decent photo-editing software. You’ll also need to have a good understanding of the technicalities of photography, but you can learn all that online too.
If you’re not comfortable setting up your own photos studio, you can try online marketplaces like Fotolia where you can sell your photos for clients all over the world. With tons of stock photos available for purchase, you can have your pick of the litter when it comes to photo editing services. Plus, you don’t need to run your own shooting studio to get started. Just load your camera and point-and-shoot. Simple!
Sell Your Music On The Web
Tired of wasting your time with fake Spotify and Amazon accounts? Make a few dollars from selling your own music! You can do this legally through SoundCloud. Just create a profile, add your music, and start promoting your albums. You’ll earn about $5-10 per day from album sales alone, and you don’t need to worry about copyright issues or mastering the tracks. All you need is a microphone and some determination.
If you’ve got a sizable audience on social media, you can utilize that to gain greater exposure for your music. Just make sure that you’re active on social media and that you’re putting out content that will drive traffic to your website. Once you have some steady traffic, you can consider selling your music through a streaming service like Spotify or Amazon Music. Just make sure that you’re not violating any copyrights when promoting your music.
Start An Online Store
If you’re the creative type, you can start up an Etsy shop. Etsy is a global marketplace that allows anyone to sell their handmade items. You’ll need to have a physical product that you can ship to customers, but you can get creative with the items you make and sell through the platform. Plus, you can take advantage of the fact that Etsy members live all around the world to set up international delivery for cheaper.
If you’re looking for a more traditional route and want to be able to make a living from it, you can start a tee shirt store. The shirt business has been around for a while, and you can definitely make a living from it if you run a small shop. You’ll need a decent sized room temperature controlled storage space to store your tee shirts in. You can get storage lockers from anywhere and store them at your house. Then, you’ll need to find a good supplier for the tee shirts you want to sell. If you don’t have the storage space or if you prefer to run your store from home, consider selling your merchandise through a platform like Shopify or Bigcommerce.
Sell Your Laundry
If you’re looking for a way to make a quick buck, you can try your hand at selling your laundry. People are always looking for clean clothes, and you can get paid to take care of all their washing and drying. Just head over to Fiverr and reach out to any of the laundry services there. You’ll need to have a few good conversations with potential customers until you can set up a proper trade. Sometimes, people will even want you to come and do their laundry for them. So, make sure you have a van or a car that can handle heavy loads, and be willing to travel around to customers’ houses. When you’re traveling, be sure to pack some supplies (clean clothes, of course) in case you run out of something.
There, now you have several ways to make a little extra cash. Some of these methods require more work than others, but none of them require special training. You’ll simply need to apply your talents and figure-how-to’s you’ve learned online and in business school to get started.
