So what are these brilliant ways to make money online you ask?  Well here is the break down:

11 Brilliant Ways to Make Money at Home:


Start a blog

I started blogging as a way to reach more people to talk about finance.  I actually didn’t really think people made much money blogging.  My goal was to talk about a subject that people find very difficult to talk about.  Since starting the blog, I have learned so much from other bloggers and I realize that a full time income is possible from a blog.  If you are interested about how I started my blog (more specific details, you can find a complete tutorial here.)

If you want the list of tools I used to grow my platform, you can find that list here along with other great tools that I absolutely love.  I am making money from my blog and I have been blogging about 6 months.  Just to give you an idea, it isn’t much but it is enough to pay back the money I spent on hosting and some that I spend on courses for blogging.  By the way, I recommend using Bluehost for hosting and you can find out why through my tutorial, or you can sign up with Bluehost here.  Just ask Michelle at Making Sense of Cents.  Her income report is below.  Yes,  Michelle is the boss of affiliate marketing and she definitely knows how to make money at home!

If you are a blogger and you would like to earn more affiliate income, Michelle recently started a course to help bloggers make more affiliate income.  You can check it out by clicking on my link.  I took it and I am so thankful I did.  I started earning affiliate income a week after signing up.

The first book I read to learn more about blogging was 7 Surefire Ways to Boost Your Blog Income Overnight by Ruth Soukup.  It is a free download.  It was the first book I read that I realized you could actually make money blogging.  Ruth is also the founder of Elite Blog Academy which is a course I highly recommend I took it last February and it set an awesome foundation for my blog.  I was able to increase my pageviews to over 40,000 per month in under 6 months of blogging which was nice.  I used the information given in the course to increase my pageviews and now make money from my blog.    EBA is only offered once per year.  If you are interested in getting on the waiting list, you can sign up here.   If blogging is something you are interested in, I highly recommend the course.  It is expensive at $499, but you can use the checklist I put together of 175 Ways to Make Extra Money to start saving for the course now.

Get paid to take surveys

There are actually several companies that will pay you money to take surveys.  You won’t get rich, but you may make an extra $50-100 per month if you sit down and do about 20 minutes a day of surveys.  The most popular sites are Swagbucks, RewardTV, National Consumer Panel, Digital Voice,  Harris Poll and Survey Junkie.  So you won’t make a ton of money on these sites, but you could easily make and extra $50-$100 per month.   If you want to learn more about each of these sites, read this post about how to make money by taking online surveys.


Sell your stuff on Facebook Virtual Garage Sale sites or Craigslist

For a list of 100 things to sell for money, click here.  What you don’t use, somebody else will.   I have personally sold  a ton of stuff using both Craigslist and Facebook.  Again, this will not make you enough to quit your day job but it does free up money to leverage to start your own business or if you are super good at negotiating, you can actually buy stuff like antiques and “flip” them for a profit.  Yes people do this!  If you are interested in learning more about how to leverage your money, check out a guest post I did on VTX Capital.



Sell your graphic design talents on Fiverr

Fiverr is a place where you find people to create logos or help with graphic design and other creative services.  You get paid to create for other people  If you are good at graphics, check out Fiverr.  This could be a building block for bigger gigs.



Set up a website and host webinars

What are you really good at?  Is is a hobby you can teach other people?  Webinars are a way of making extra money for teaching people things that are easy for you.  The best website to learn from (in my opinion of course) is Wonderlass.  I learned from her and she has a lot of valuable tips on starting webinars and making money from them.


Freelance Writing

The go to gal that really knows her stuff in regards to freelance writing is Gina Horkey.  She is a boss when it comes to Freelance Writing and she offers a free course to help you understand more about freelance writing.  If you are interested, I suggest you take the free course so you have a better idea of what freelance writing is.  I took it and it is very easy to understand.

Create/sell your own products

You can sell your own products on Etsy or just sell them through your website if you start a blog.   My friend Gina (what can I say, I know a lot of Gina’s) sells her Mommy related stuff at Mom Life Must Haves and they are a huge hit.  By the way, if you are a mom or you take care of kids, you should check this stuff out.  It is totally adorable!

You can also write eBooks, sell craft stuff from your blog/website, or anything you think that would help people.  You don’t have to be an author, you just have to be helpful.

If you are, you might be the perfect person to sell your images in the online space to bloggers and other online peeps.   Haute Chocolate is an awesome place to get style stock photos that are absolutely beautiful and she sells her images in her own library.  Below is one of her images.  Seriously, how gorgeous is that!
