4 – No risk matched betting (The UK only)

You can earn money really fast with matched betting. Profit Maximiser  (UK only) shows you exactly how to do this.

There is training videos, a Facebook group with over 7000 members and a daily calendar with offers available.

Mike the products creator offers a £1.00 trial where you can earn between £45 – £100 depending on how much time you put in.

I continually earn between £400 to £700 a month with  Profit Maximiser doing about 4 hours a week.

Some people do this full time and earn over £3k a month.

5 – Sell on eBay

If you have it and don’t need it then sell it on eBay. Just remember – one person’s junk is another person’s treasure.

6 – Bring out your creative self and sell on Etsy 

The products on this site are truly unique.

They are different from the products you see in any shops as most of the items are handmade.

What can you create today?

Check out our post with Celeste who is a top seller on Etsy here

7 – List for free on Facebook

Use Facebook groups and also the new in-app Facebook Marketplace to sell the stuff you no longer need or use.

Plus there are no fees for using this, unlike eBay and Etsy. I have in the past bought from eBay and sold in the Facebook marketplace.

I have in the past bought from 1 group on Facebook and then sold it in the Facebook marketplace the same day.

8 – Flipping Products

Buy items to resell on eBay, Amazon or Facebook groups.

I have bought items before from the £1 shop and sold them on eBay for £8.

You can also get great finds at local car boot sales. Plus you can quickly check on eBay using your phone to see how much people are charging for products.

You can also buy items on eBay and flip them on Amazon. This is really easy to do and if you do your research you can make £3 / £4 an item.

I have sold a camera on Amazon for £48 then gone to eBay and bought the same product for £30, then got it sent to my customer on Amazon making a quick £15 after fees.

9 – Trade your old technology

Got a new phone or iPad? Sell your old phone on Gazelle 

10 – Offer Your Services on Fiverr

You can offer any service you wish as long it’s legal and complies with Fiverr terms. There are over 100 categories you can browse to get ideas.

Once you sign you then sell Gigs which start from $5.

11 – Write and publish your own ebook

Ever wanted to write your own e-book?

Kindles and ebooks are very popular right now.

Once you have your ebook written and you’re ready to start selling, use a platform like Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing or Apple’s iBooks to publish it to the world.

I interviewed Justin who is a best selling author on Amazon. Have a read of the interview here for his best tips for selling your books.

12 – Try Affiliate Marketing – Earn passive income with your own affiliate marketing website 

What is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is basically this –

When you refer someone to any online product or service and when that person buys the product based on your recommendation, you then receive a commission.

So Let’s say your website or blog is about fashion, you can then work with different companies which sell fashion items.

You then take some of the companies marketing materials like a banner or image which you include in your blog, then when someone clicks on that banner or buys you get paid a commission.

29 – Start a Drop Shipping Business

With the continued explosion of eCommerce and traditional shopping on the decline, drop shipping products has become very popular because of the low-risk factor.

What is drop shipping? This can be broken down into 3 steps.

1 – You sell products on your website or shop.

2 – Once a sale is made you order the product from your drop shipping company.

3 – They then send the product to your customer directly and you keep the profit.

Not Taught At School - Bang Good

So an example of this would be.

You list a tent on your online store or eBay account for £50.

When it sells you then go to your drop shipping company and pay them £30 and give them your customers details.

They send the tent direct to your customer and you keep the difference, so in this example, you would have made £20. Congratulations ๐Ÿ™‚

There are lots of different drop shipping companies out there, some charge you to join and others don’t.

I have worked with several over the years and my favourite is Bang Good (I know, bizarre name)

Below is just some of the key reasons why I use these guys.

  • Free to join
  • They have warehouses all over the world so shipping is fast and you can sell overseas
  • Free shipping on lots of the products
  • No minimum order unlike other sites
  • Hot item recommendations on best selling lines
  • You can use all the images on the site to promote your products

If you’re interested in starting a drop shipping business, I would recommend using Shopify to build your online store.

Not only is it easy to set up and get your store looking very professional but they also have hundreds of templates to choose from and they also offer a 14-dayy free trail so you can be up and running in no time.

Open a Shopify store here, then head over to Bang Good and start choosing which items you want to sell.

I have written a step by step guide which you can see on how to make money drop shipping

He currently walks 18 dogs a day so isn’t doing too shabby.

38 – Baking

Selling homemade cakes, cupcakes and other delicious treats.

I use Instamate and also Tailwind to help me with this as I can schedule out a full weeks worth of content in an hour.

52 –  Advertise on Social Media
