Everyone loves the idea of being their own boss, but there’s no reason why you can’t get by without the conventional 9-5. Hundreds of niche businesses and pop up ideas have started at home, so why not yours? Here are a few ideas to make some extra cash without even having to set foot out of the door.
There are hundreds of sites out there that may well seem a little sketchy, but will happily pay you good money just for filling out online surveys. Most surveys take around 20 minutes to complete, and will reward you with either cash, points or store gift cards for places such as Amazon, Marks & Spencer’s and more!
You don’t need to fly all the way out to Vegas or Monte Carlo to win big money at the tables! With sites like Paddy Power Games, you can play a whole host of online games and win huge jackpots. They even offer free spins for new customers, so you don’t need to spend big, to win big!
Rent Out a Spare Room
Got a spare bedroom just filled with boxes? Take advantage and rent it out to a lodger for a monthly income without any additional effort. Sites like Air BnB do short term rentals for travellers, or you can offer it for a longer fixed term to a tenant.
Find yourself with a creative touch and no-where to channel it? Sell your wares and creations on your own store with sites like Etsy. Perfect for selling jewellery, artwork, clothing and handmade gifts. Takes seconds to set up, and it’s 100% secure so you can focus simply on creating and selling!
You can ride an endless stream of prizes, big money and holidays if you play the competition game right. Companies will always do giveaways that seem too good to believe, but can genuinely and legitimately win if it means advertising their product well. Take advantage and do as many as possible, as most, in fact almost all competitions are generally free.
Good quality bloggers get paid very well for companies to use their blogs as advertising space, whether it be in the form of ad banners fixed to the site, or unique content in the way of reviews, features and giveaways. Be sure to make your blog and content the best it can be, and reap the rewards!
Rent Out a Parking Space
Got the luxury of a spare parking space? People pay big money to rent spaces for their cars, whether it be commuters catching the train during rush hour, tourists staying away from the cities, or simply people attending big sporting events such as the World Cup, Wimbledon or the Olympics. Prices generally rise closer to events, so if you’re in the vicinity of an event or arena, be sure to take advantage.
