Top ways to make money online and offline
These are the best ways to start making extra money today.
1.No-risk matched betting
This is a quick and easy way to make money from home.
We’ve all been there—you’re sitting at home, bored out of your mind, and you think to yourself “I’m going to go to the library today.” And then you go, and it’s pouring rain outside, so you leave after about 30 minutes and come back home.
At least you got some reading done! But what if I told you that there was a way to make £100 without leaving your couch? What if it didn’t require any effort on your part at all? What if it also happened to be completely legal? What if it was tax-free and risk-free?
That’s right: matched betting. And yes, we know that sounds crazy, but hear us out: matched betting works by taking advantage of free bets offered by betting sites (and other sportsbooks) and ‘matching’ them at an exchange. This removes the risk as you are betting both for and against an outcome. You can then squeeze out the free bet, which can be as much as £100. Multiply this by all the betting sites there are (there are over 1,000), and in no time at all you can be making money hand over.
2. Online paid surveys
Have you heard of the survey industry?
Surveys are a great way to make money online, and they’re easy to get into. You can fill out surveys for a few minutes at a time (or even less than that), and you can earn up to £3 ($5) for each one! And with many surveys, you can choose between cash or rewards.
You could make as much as £3 ($5) in your spare time by filling out surveys for just a few minutes each day! And that’s not even including the time you spend looking for other ways to make money online.
A few good ones to try are Branded Surveys, Swagbucks, Toluna, Pinecone, LifePoints, OnePoll, i-Say, Opinion Outpost, YouGov, Prizerebel, Marketagent, InboxPounds, Valued Opinions, The Opinion Panel, Mingle, Opinion Bureau, Maru Voice, Panel Base, Y Live, Survey Junkie.

4. Online market trading
Investing in the stock market isn’t necessarily an easy way to make money, but it can be lucrative if you learn to do it properly. By the same token, you may suffer significant losses if you don’t take it seriously.
Today there is no need to fund the yachts of Wolf of Wall Street-style stock brokers. You can do it all yourself with the help of online market trading platforms.
Having spent many hours researching this new opportunity, I’ve been using the popular platform eToro.com. eToro has over 20 million users worldwide and offers free practice accounts. They featured in the BBC Two documentary “Traders: Millions by the Minute” and sponsor several Premier League football clubs.
eToro is a very user-friendly platform that allows for easy navigation through different sections within their website including: Market Analysis & Activity (which includes news), Portfolio Management (where you can set goals and monitor your progress), Trading Tools (so that you can access a variety of useful tools) and Social Trading (which enables you to connect with other traders). There are also a number of social media channels where people can share ideas and discuss issues related to trading such as spread betting or CFD’s;
One of the best things on eToro is the CopyTrader feature. This lets you see, follow, and copy the investments of other top performing traders.
You can start trading yourself for as little as £/$10!
Follow George’s complete guide to trading on eToro. You’ll learn a great deal about various investments and industries.
Please be aware that all trading involves risk. eToro is a multi-asset platform that offers real asset ownership and high-risk leveraged ‘CFD’ products. 80% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider.
5. Start your own website
Looking to generate passive income? You need a website.
A website with Bluehost is the easiest way to start making money while you sleep, and it can be done by an 82 year-old.
It only takes a bit of plugging on social media to get your first visitors, and there are plenty of ways to monetise your site.
One example is Save the Student. Started at university by Owen Burek, it has since grown to serve over 1 million visitors a month.
Read Owen’s step-by-step guide on how to create a website in 20 minutes from home. It’s really one of the best assets you can have.
6.Review websites & apps
If you’re like us, you’ve been using a web browser for years. Maybe you’ve even started to wonder if there’s more out there beyond the internet…
Well, it seems like you’re pretty nifty with a web browser. So perhaps it’s time to turn pro and browse websites as a paid and fun job!
Introducing UserTesting – a platform that pays everyday people to review all kinds of websites. Each review takes around 20 minutes and bags you $10 (£6.50) via Paypal.
Simply sign up here, complete a test review and look forward to receiving websites in your inbox.
7.The ‘Disney Vault’ secret
Disney has a habit of releasing their classic films in high-definition, and they’re not afraid to hold onto those titles for years—even decades.
That means that if you want to get your hands on some of the most important Disney movies, you need to act fast! Disney will release its classics at normal retail price (or less) for a few years before sales take off again.
For example, in 2011, Beauty and the Beast was available for just £24.99 on Blu-ray 3D. By 2017, it was selling for £74.99!
It’s a good time to be a Disney fan.
Not only are there more titles being released in the vault, but they’re also more affordable than ever before. As a result, you can get your hands on some of the most classic Disney films like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Alice in Wonderland at bargain prices.
However, not all Disney releases are subject to the vault—only the true classics will maintain such demand. Right now there are just 2 titles out of the vault—Bambi Diamond Edition Blu-ray and The Lion King Diamond Edition Blu-ray—which I recommend snapping up immediately.
8.’Get Paid To’ sites
Similar to making money from online surveys, GPT sites reward you in cash and vouchers for completing various offers or activities online.
GPT sites are easy to join and start earning money on the spot! Just click ‘Complete’ and get paid instantly!
You can earn up to $50 per day by completing simple tasks online. All you need to do is visit a website and complete a few simple tasks that take less than 5 minutes per day.
It’s like getting paid to watch videos without even watching them!
The most popular sites today are Toluna, Swagbucks and InboxPounds.
9. Become a delivery rider or driver
So you’ve finally decided to make the jump from the bike to the car. You’re excited about the new freedom, and you can’t wait to get out there and go for a ride.
But before you take off with your new license, we want to give you some advice: be sure you know which side of the road it is!
In this day and age, many people are looking for ways to make money while they ride their bikes—and that’s no less true for those who want to drive a car. But just because it’s legal doesn’t mean it’s easy to find work as a delivery specialist in your area.
If you’re ready to take advantage of your newfound freedom and make some extra cash while delivering food or picking up packages from local restaurants, look into signing up with one of these companies: Deliveroo (for delivery), Postmates (for couriers), or DoorDash (for drivers). These companies offer flexible schedules that allow you complete flexibility over when you work and how much time you spend on each assignment. Plus, if customers are abundant on any given day, these companies will pay top dollar for your services!
10. Publish a Kindle eBook
The Kindle app is now available on any device, so your global market is huge!
If students are good at anything, it’s researching and writing. With the Kindle store, anyone can publish an eBook and make money on Amazon.
The Kindle app is now available on any device so your global market is huge!
List your book for £1.49 – £6.99 and you earn 70% of the sale. Considering Amazon is the ultimate selling machine (and remember, people, are looking to spend), that is a fantastic deal.
There’s no reason you should be writing your own books!
If you’ve always wanted to write a book and thought ‘I’m not good enough,’ then this is the perfect opportunity for you. It can be hard to get started, but once you’re in motion, it’s easy to keep going.
The key to success with eBooks is to create value, and write non-fiction. Bundling information you have researched and compiled on a common problem (eg. ‘secrets’ to finding a job) and then presenting it in an easy to digest format (an eBook) justifies someone spending a few quid on it.
Have a professional cover designed so it stands out (browse these).
Once your eBook is live on the Kindle store, it’s important to get some reviews so it shows up higher in results. Encourage readers to leave an honest review at the end of your book.
The best thing about this lucrative idea is that once you’ve invested the time (say 20 hours), you’ll earn a passive income for years to come!
