If you're online at all, I'm sure you’ve seen and heard it…

Make money online blogging!

The truth is, you can make money by blogging but there’s many other ways to earn extra income that are much simpler. (Especially if your writing skills aren’t up to par.)

If you have some spare time, a computer and an internet connection, you can get started with any of these today.

1. Sell a product or service on FIVERR

fiverr
Whatever service you’re selling, there’s probably someone on
Fiverr who’s buying. Fiverr is a unique marketplace where users offer their skills or expertise for five dollars. Clients hire professionals for voiceover work, keyword research, Photoshop editing, career advice, logo designs, mobile app development — the list goes on.

Think about what services you can provide quickly and correctly, then create a free profile and gig listing. You can also upsell clients with add-on features after they make the initial five dollar agreement.

2. Dropship Products on Amazon FBA

The
Fulfilled by Amazon program allows you to sell products to customers around the world, which Amazon will package and ship for you directly from its warehouses. You’ll have little overhead, since you don’t have to handle inventory and only pay for storage space as Amazon fills your orders.

Get started by finding a product that’s popular on Amazon, then order it in bulk from a site like Alibaba.com to resell.

3. Refer Products with AMAZON ASSOCIATES

Amazon will pay you a commission just for referring people to its products. You sign up for a free
Amazon Associates account, then use custom links to ensure you get credit if someone uses them to buy Amazon products. Here’s a look at the commission rates on different items.

You can write about your favorite products on a blog or personal site, or you can share the links on social media. The goal is to educate your audience about products that would be of value to them, then get them to buy using your affiliate links.

4. Take on small tasks with MECHANICAL TURK

This is another Amazon program, but it focuses on “hits,” or micro tasks, that you complete quickly. Thousands of people power the
Mechanical Turk marketplace by working on small segments of many projects. For instance, if someone submits a 60-minute transcription project, 10 people will transcribe six minutes each, rather than having one person take the entire assignment.

Tasks on the site include data entry, writing short paragraphs, taking surveys, and countless other options. Daily earnings range from a few dollars to $100, for those willing to hustle.

5. Teach a course on UDEMY

Leverage your personal or professional experiences for profit by creating a course on
Udemy. With four million returning students, Udemy is the largest e-learning marketplace in the world, and you can sell a course on virtually anything through its platform. Current courses cover everything from Javascript, writing, yoga, piano lessons, knitting, interpersonal relationships, and much more. Get creative about what you can teach, and then get paid to showcase your knowledge. Udemy keeps a percentage of your profits, but promotes your course within its user base so you still end up making decent money.

I started using Udemy three years ago and now earn $700-$2500 dollars a month from my courses.

6. Freelance on Upwork

Fifty-three million Americans make some or all of their income from freelance or contract work. You can work as a part- or full-time virtual assistant, or take on client projects as a writer, programmer, web designer, accountant, business consultant or several other capacities.

If you’re new to the freelancing game, create a profile and bid for projects on Upwork. Strategize before you start bidding to make sure you’re taking on projects that pay well. You’ll also want to set up a portfolio site to make it easy for clients to find and hire you directly. Thanks to intuitive themes from Themeforest, powered by great hosting from Bluehost, you can easily have a portfolio site up and running in no time.

7. Get crafty selling on ETSY

Have a knack for homemade crafts? Sell them on
Etsy, the international marketplace that’s taken the DIY craft world by storm — and has earned some entrepreneurs serious dough. Sign up for free and test your best products in your own Etsy shop.

8. Sell the stuff you don't need on Craigslist

craigslist
Craigslist — it’s so much more than
Missed Connections. You can start a profitable side business by advertising your freelance services or selling restored furniture on local Craigslist sites. You don’t have to deal with shipping if you sell locally, but sharpen your negotiation skills before you enter into any Craigslist transactions. People can be brutal when looking for a bargain.

9. Sell your photos online

Thanks to the ever growing number of blogs and news sites, good photography is in major demand. If you’re sitting on a repository of great photos, or are willing to shoot some fresh ones, you can earn money selling your snaps online. Sites like
Envato, Shutterstock, and iStockPhoto all buy photos. And you don’t have to choose just one — you can license the same photos to multiple sites.

10. Sell your art on DEVIANTART

This is one of the largest online art marketplaces and home to a passionate art community.
Sell your art on the site or promote your work to get commissioned for new pieces. Check out this great resource from The Abundant Artist on selling through DeviantArt.
