I’ve always been looking for extra income opportunities! Since I can remember I always tried all the odd strange things which everyone else avoided! No matter how many people told me to get a proper job, I never listened! I have tried many extra income opportunities over the years and a few of them paid off. Here are a few ideas to add some extra money to your wallet which are also fairly simple to do.
Extra Income Opportunities For Anyone To Do
Back in my 20’s I met a stuntman which so inspired me I decided to do it too! Despite all the training, it also led me to extras work which anyone can do. You just need to find an extras agency in your area. Extras work is a good way to add some extra cash to your income portfolio. You will need a car ideally and to join an extras agency. You can find agencies near you with a quick Google search. Extras are background supporting artists and they fill the background of TV and films to make scenes look busy.
Ebay Buying And Selling
If you’ve ever had a sporadic job you will know how frustrating it can be waiting for the phone calls for employment. While in between work I made some extra income from buying and selling on the auction site ebay. I was a keen ‘car booter’ and liked going to weekend car boot sales and charity shops for bargains. I would often see things which I could then sell on ebay for a profit.
Anyone can do this and you don’t need to be an avid charity shop fan or car boot fanatic either. You can find bargain items on the auction site itself with a clever search tool. It’s called the ebay bargain finder. Sites like bargainchecker.com let you search for misspelled items which have been listed with badly spelled titles and keywords. As a result, they don’t get the amount of searches they should. By buying these items at rock bottom prices and re-listing them with better keywords, you can make a profit on each item.
You can also use ebay’s search feature on the site itself to find local bargains in your area. See my other article on this: how to buy and sell for profit on ebay.
Extra Income Opportunities – An Online Business
Extra income opportunities are everywhere. You just need the right ideas and mindset to find them! The fact that you are on a computer right now probably means you own that computer or at least have access to it and an internet connection. That’s all you need to start your own internet based business. An internet business can be run in several ways:
- Blogging for profit (See my book Niche Blogging For Profit) You can earn money here in a couple of ways. The most common ones are Google Adsense program and affiliate marketing.
- Creating Videos and selling affiliate products – Some YouTube members make a full time living from the internet simply by creating popular videos and selling advertising on them.
- Building a list of subscribers and emailing them products and services (affiliate offers)
Extra Income Opportunities – Affiliate Marketing
For more detailed information on this see my article what is affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing lets anyone make money from their laptop or home computer. All they need is an internet connection and the desire to learn a new set of skills. Affiliate marketing is, in my humble opinion, one of the best extra income opportunities. It lets you work from home or anywhere and you don’t have to hard sell anyone or even speak to any customers. With affiliate marketing you refer people to products and services around the internet and earn a commission from sales.
Affiliate Marketing Selling From Your Website
Selling items from your website has got to be one of the best ways to generate an extra income. Your website can run on autopilot, delivering products and services without you being there, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The automation allows you to leverage technology and reach a larger amount of people than you could possible do alone. It’s a great model if you want your own business but don’t want the hassle of lots of staff and a large rent bill for premises. You can generate income in a number of ways from an affiliate marketing business:
- By selling affiliate products through your website
- By selling advertising (by using Google’s adsense program)
- By selling products through a list of email subscribers
- Selling directly by advertising online
