Part Time Earning Ideas

Sign up as a TV extra – TV extras work behind the main actors in TV productions and films. Anyone can work as an extra and you don’t have to be a certain age or look to work. Find an extras agency near you with a quick Google search and sign up to an agency for work.

Typically you will need to fill out some forms and send in some photos too so agencies know what you look like and can pick you for a suitable program. Sometimes an agents books will be closed so you may have to wait a while before you can get some work.

Work is sporadic and can come in at the last minute so you will need to work at short notice and be available by phone for when the jobs come in.

Start An Ebay Business

I used ebay to earn extra money in between jobs when I did contract work. Ebay is good because you can pick it up and drop it whenever it suits you. Work from home and build an ebay business around existing work. You can either find cheap items to sell at charity shops and car boot sales or find them on ebay itself.

Here’s the strategy I used to earn part time from ebay: Ebay bargain finder. You can also bulk buy from places like, create a single listing and sell multiple items through that listing.

Car Boot Sales


Hire a field and run a car boot sale. You can charge entry fees for both stalls and punters. Over a good weekend this can be a good little earner. You will need to find somewhere wuitable to hire and of course advertise. Success can sometimes depend on the weather so this is a seasonal earning idea. You can also use car boot sales to find items to sell on ebay, or run your own stall to shift your own unwanted junk which is sitting in the garage or attic.

Start Your Own Online Business

An online business is one of the best part time earning ideas you can find. By selling other people’s goods and services online you can earn from referral traffic. This model is known as affiliate marketing. You can either create content and refer your visitors to products and services, or do the same with paid advertising.

Once you have a wimming model you can scale an online business to sell again and again. The good thing is, you can start your own online business from anywhere without needing and proveious knowledge or experience. Learn more here.

Do you have a skill which you could market in your own class? Language/music or other academic qualifications such as mathematics, geography or biology which you could teach after school for students? After school classes to help students with their exams can be a nice extra income. If you teach a musical instrument you can also run classes in the evenings or weekends for an extra income.

Sell Your Own Work On Ebay

Are you artistic or can you make things with your hands? If you have a craft consider putting it to work to make a part time income from home. If you are a woodworker or artist, you can turn you hand to an online business where you showcase your skills. Start with an ebay account and you can develop your own website and start building an online presence.
