Using social media, browsing Youtube and playing games are all fun activities you can perform with an internet connection – however, they are not always the most productive ways to spend your time. Check out this extensive list creative by Lion Sourced and begin making extra income through various online ventures!
Complete Paid Surveys
With the help of websites such as Swagbucks and E4S, you can get paid to complete surveys and give various information to the business behind each campaign. When you sign up to one of these websites, you will be asked for credentials such as age, location, job and yearly salary – This is used to ensure that only relevant surveys will be available for you to complete.
Review Other Websites
Many web developers get other people to review their sites, as a fresh pair of eyes are much more likely to pick up any errors or imperfections. You can sign up to sites like User Testing, fill out your profile as much as possible and then you will be presented with a list of websites awaiting review.
Sell A Service
No matter where your skills lie, there is almost always someone waiting to hand you cash in exchange for providing a service. Sign up to freelancing websites like Fourerr and PeoplePerHour, create a compelling portfolio of your skills and wait for buyers.
Grow A Social Account
Instagram niche pages are a perfect side hustle for anyone with a mobile phone and a bit of spare time. Create the account within a niche you know a little bit about (For example, if you LOVE dogs, make a page sharing pictures of adorable pups), post frequently and interact with similar pages to grow your audience. Once your page is large enough, you can begin selling shoutouts to companies. If you want to take your Instagram account to the next level, check out our extensive range of Instagram blog posts.
Buy And Resell
If you have a vast amount of knowledge, or simply use eBay as a price checker, you can purchase items and resell them at a profit. Think car boot sales, charity shops and even some online auction sites themselves – there’s always a bargain waiting to be found.
Write A Blog
Lion Sourced was created as a passion project of mine, but also as a side hustle. Creating and maintaining a blog does require a decent sized initial investment, spent on the domain, hosting, theme e.t.c, but once it’s up and running, it can act as a perfect source of additional income. Post as many well-written posts as possible, work hard promoting them and once you’ve built a good-sized audience, monetize the site with Adsense.
Invest in Stocks
Big disclaimer on this one, investing in stocks is a RISK but can be profitable if done correctly. Don’t dive straight into buying shares of your favourite company, or listen to ‘experts’ posting free information on Twitter – Pay attention to the news, research company balance sheets and try to identify trends before making your investment.
Post On Youtube
It’s no secret that Youtube can generate huge amounts of money for promising video creators. Before you decide on which niche you want to post videos in, check that this type of content can be monetized. If you want to post gaming videos of you playing CSGO, for example, search Youtube for existing content and see if they have ads enabled on their channel.
Learn Arbitrage Betting
Arbitrage betting is very interesting and is a completely safe way to make money using sports betting. It doesn’t happen all that often, but occasionally bookmakers will undersell or oversell an outcome and it’s up to you to capitalize on this mistake. Make an account on multiple betting sites and look for results that have largely different odds across 2 websites – For example, take an MMA match, Betting Company 1 is offering 2.4x odds on Fighter 1, while betting company 2 is offering 2.3x odds on Fighter 2. By placing a £20 bet on each outcome, you will profit regardless of how the fight ends. Make sure you are betting ‘DRAW NO BET’ in this instance, else a draw will wipe out your entire £40 investment.
Sell Handmade Products
With a bit of practice, you can make a variety of products which can then be sold on eBay, Amazon or even your own website. Think candles, soap, artwork – Even if you can’t make any of these products now, there are various moulds and other equipment you can purchase for a small investment.
There’s our list of 10 ways to make an extra source of income online. Try to pick a side-hustle that you will enjoy, as this often correlates to working harder and having higher levels of success.
