Simple Ways To Make Money Online UK Edition


Are you looking for real ways to make money online? You're not alone. (Don't worry if you are not from the UK as these all work worldwide except for the last one)


A recent study shared that over 68% of people in the UK alone are interested in earning online and working from home. (Don't worry if you are not from the UK as everything we will cover today is available worldwide) 


With the cost of living always on the rise, it's no wonder people are looking for alternative ways to bring in some extra cash online.


And luckily, there are plenty of options available, you just need to know where to look and how to get started. 


So if you're ready to start making money online, read on for our top tips.


8 Awesome Ways To Earn Online

Genuine Ways To Earn Online.


I'll be honest here, I am not going to waste your time with the same stuff you have probably read over and over on many of the money-making blogs online, we will not be looking at things like taking online surveys, mystery shopping or things which pay hardly any money. 


Instead, we will focus on real ways to earn online that not only pay well, but with a little time and effort, they can start earning you some decent money. 


Sound fair? 


Let's continue and jump into method number one. 



Start a Youtube Channel.


I am kicking this list off with YouTube as it's not only free to start but absolutely anyone can do this and you don't need any of the following.


  • Expensive lighting equipment
  • A fancy camera
  • Experience in making videos
  • You can even do YouTube videos without being on camera or having to talk yourself. 


And now more than ever is the best time to get started on YouTube as the platform is growing bigger each year. 


But isn't it over-saturated? No, absolutely not.


I bet this isn't the first article you have read about earning online or making money?


People like to watch something similar but shared in a different way, and that is why I will always recommend YouTube (Plus the money is pretty good too) 


You can create a YouTube channel about absolutely anything, gaming, how to play an instrument, to save money, make money, cleaning tips, fitness and there are thousands of more options.  


Currently, I have 6 YouTube channels and these are all in different categories and niches, and 2 of them don't even have my face or voice on them. 


How much can you make?


This varies on the topic which your channel is about.  Advertisers pay different rates for their ads to appear on your video. 


Over on my main channel which is in the personal finance category advertisers pay a lot more than they would for an advert on a gaming channel, or a Vlog because they know that their product or service is in front of people who are interested. 


Currently, I earn about $65 (£58) per 1,000 views which is pretty good, and below are some of my earnings from my main channel once it was monetized. 



I think you will agree that's pretty good considering my videos are normally less than 20 minutes long and it's just me talking and sharing websites.


It's also worth remembering that the above screenshot is only from YouTube Adsense, I earn way more from affiliate marketing which I include in many videos and we will come to this in a little while. 


 And if you really want to make money on YouTube then we have lots of resources below for you. 


Resources for YouTube.


I have many articles about YouTube including how to get started, make money, create thumbnails and lots more which you can check out here: YouTube Articles.


Also, I have a completely free YouTube course that will walk you through the entire process of starting a YouTube channel and how to get started. 


Check it out below.

Buy and Sell Domain Names


The Domain Name Industry Is huge and it's never been easier to get in the action. You can make quick money online by flipping domains in less than 24 hours!


A domain name is a website address eg. ”” and there are lots of variations (.com, .net, etc).


And believe it or not, everyday domain names expire and there are a number of reasons for this.


  • The owner no longer wants it.
  • They forgot to renew the domain.
  • Many people start websites and after time they give up on them.
  • Or they simply forgot about it and let it expire.


Luckily for us, we can find thousands of expired domains every day.


You can break this whole method to earn online into 4 steps. 

  1. Find an expired domain.
  2. Find Out How Much It Is Worth.
  3. Buy the domain.
  4. Flip The Domain (Sell It).


How Much Can You Make?


Lots! And if you spend time with this method you can potentially earn hundreds for a domain you buy for very little, below are a few examples for you. 


Get Domains Results


Currently, Go Daddy have a complete list of the most expensive 25 domains sold online and it's eye-watering!


Here are 10 domains that have sold in the last 10 years for millions. — $49.7 million — $35.6 million — $35 million — $30.18 million — $30 million — $18 million — $17 million — $16 million — £9.99 million — $14 million

Share Your Knowledge Or Skills And Teach Online.



Before you panic or worry, I am not talking about the normal “teach English online” which many blogs like to share about. 


Instead, I mean you can get paid to share your existing knowledge or skills, here is a question for you….


What do you find simple to accomplish, which other people can't do? Are you particularly good at something? 


Here are a few suggestions, can you…


  • Make bread from scratch
  • Grow vegetables
  • Know how to take awesome photos 
  • Create videos on a smartphone 
  • Are you good at budgeting? 
  • Or maybe play an instrument
  • How about building lego
  • Playing online games such as Fortnite or Roblox
  • Drawing and the list goes on and on


Below are just a few examples of what people are “teaching” online. 


Side Hustles That Work


There are lots of websites where you can share your knowledge or skills online and get paid for doing so. And you can earn money in a number of ways, you can create a weekly class, hold monthly calls via Zoom or you can even pre-record your tips and upload them.  

How much can you make?


There are many ways to earn with this, you can charge per person for a class, you can also charge a flat fee for a course or live workshop. Some platforms even pay extra for every person that engages with your content.


Resources for teaching online.


There are lots of websites you could check out and below I have listed 3 of the best places to earn with this method. 


Create And Sell Printables.


I love this method for earning online and is something I recently started myself. 


What I like the most is the potential of this method. Create a printable once, list it for sale and then it becomes a passive income. 


Below are some sales I made over on Etsy whilst I was sleeping. (It doesn't get more passive than this)


Etsy Sales


Creating printables is something you can do for free on platforms like Canva. 


So how does it work? 


Every day thousands of people are searching online for printables and this includes things like.


  • Weekly food planners
  • Journals
  • Financial planners
  • Fitness tracker
  • Games for children 
  • Stickers
  • Colouring sheets and lots more


So we can create these printables and then list them for sale on websites like Etsy, Amazon, eBay and many more.


And you don't need any experience or special skills to get started either. There are many softwares available that you can use to create printables in mere minutes. 


How Much Can You Make?


Well, this comes down to how much time and effort you put into this, when I first started with the online printable side hustle I was spending a couple of hours a week and made my first sale after a few weeks, then more started to come in. 


Below is an actual example of a simple bumblebee printable that has made over $3,000 (£2,740) in passive income to date.

With drop shipping, you are simply acting as a middle person.


How it works.


You list items for sale on sites like eBay, Amazon, Facebook, etc and when an order comes through you take payment for the item and then simply send the customer's information to a dropshipping company.


Many huge companies use drop shipping in their business model as it allows retailers to offer more products without investing in inventory until a sale comes through.


In fact one of the biggest companies in the world… Amazon uses this exact method. 


How Much Can You Make?


This will vary lot's depending on what items you are actually selling, how much you are buying them for and many other factors, but you can earn anywhere from a few hundred each month to thousands.


Earn Online UK With Drop Shipping

Resources for Drop Shipping. 


I have written this complete guide called How To Make Money Dropshipping Products. It walks you through the whole process and shares lots of additional resources for you. 


If you are looking for something a bit more in-depth and literally takes you by the hand and walks you through the entire process then I recommend this course called The Drop Ship Code.


Unlike many courses online teaching you about using companies in China and setting up expensive Shopify stores this course is something different and it's created by a fellow brit who actually shows you inside his own business with several case studies. 


The course comes complete with step-by-step simple to follow videos, software that will build you a complete dropshipping website and there is also several PDFs. 


Also included are several case studies, a support group and lots more.


The support group is great and you regularly see other students sharing results like this below. 




I really like and rate this course because it's not the same stuff being taught on YouTube, Simon actually shares some really cool methods to get traffic to his stores and this is all done while he is away travelling the world. (Plus it is cheap which is a bonus!)

Affiliate Marketing.


This is my favourite on the list, the amount of money you can earn is unlimited, you don't need any special skills and you can start affiliate marketing very quickly.


How it works.


Affiliate marketing is a simple process where an affiliate promotes and shares a product in exchange for a commission on the sale. You can partner with thousands of companies including Amazon, Etsy, eBay, Tesco, Walmart and many more. 


Here is a quick example of how this works. 


  • Let's say you bought something from Amazon and liked it so much you shared it with a friend, if that person buys the product or anything else on Amazon in 24 hours then Amazon will pay you a commission for sending that person to the website. 


And the awesome thing about affiliate marketing is that if you set it up correctly it can become a passive income, not only that, for many, affiliate marketing can become earn you a full-time income online. 


How Much Can You Make?


As much as you like, seriously. There is no limit or cap to how much you can earn, like most things, it takes time and effort but it is 100% worth both. 


Below is a post I shared with my Facebook group….


Make Money At home Today



The above was from one affiliate network I partner with, there are many more and below are a few examples of different earnings from affiliate platforms. 


Resources For Affiliate Marketing.

This book is awesome and it cuts out all the fluff! Plus, it is very easy to read and follow along with. And, at a little over 70 pages, you can read this in an afternoon.


The cost is just ridiculously cheap and I still think they have priced this incorrect.

Take Part In Research Groups.


This is a great way to make money online, you can join online communities to assist company owners, marketing teams, development firms, and other businesses.


How it works.


Every day research firms are working with big brands looking for feedback, insights and lots more. These companies partner with websites where you can apply to take part in these research groups. Feedback is done in many ways and once you have provided feedback you are paid for your time. 


How Much Can You Make?


Below is a screenshot from my dashboard, as you can see the rate of pay is very good, if we look at the Tesco example at the top this pays around £85 for an hour!


Resources for Research Groups.


There is only one company I recommend and that is because they pay well, have been around for years and they work with some of the biggest companies in the world including Microsoft, Airbnb, Dropbox and lots more.

Matched Betting.


We can't finish this article without taking a look at matched betting, this is very popular in the UK and for good reason too. 


How it works.


Matched betting is a technique used to profit from free bets and bonuses offered by bookmakers. It involves placing a bet on an event with one bookmaker and laying a corresponding bet against the same event with another bookmaker. This ensures that, regardless of the outcome of the event, you always end up in profit.


How Much Can You Make?


When I first started this I made just over £1,000 in 4 weeks, after this, I averaged anywhere from £350 to £500 a month, all of which is tax-free. 


And it really is a simple method for earning online, below is a video I shared walking through this whole process and I made £25 profit in about 14 minutes. 



Resources for Matched Betting.


If you want to learn more about this and how to get started then I recommend a product called Profit Maximiser, it gives you absolutely everything you need to make money with matched betting.


This includes walkthrough videos, a daily calendar with the best offers available from bookies and much more. 


And you can try it out yourself for just £1 for 2 weeks.
