A Creative Way To Make Money?
Sell Gigs on Fiverr.
Fiverr is a great place to find work, whether you are buying or selling.
As the name suggests, the fees start at $5 or £5. Don’t let the low amount put you off though – there are opportunities to up-sell for larger fees.
There are a bunch of different ways that you can make money on Fiverr, such as:
- Logo design
- Writing articles
- Voice over
- Web programming
- Data entry
- Virtual assistant
- Relationship advice
- Career advice
As you can see, there are a lot of different services that you can offer on Fiverr, and the above bullet point list is just a small example.
Have a look through the categories to see if any apply to you, and then look at what the people who are currently selling on there have their fees set up.
Then sign up, and get your services set up on there – then you’re good to go.
Another way you can make money on Fiverr is with something called retail arbitrage.
This is a very simple method and it includes you putting up a listing on Fiverr and then when it sells you purchase from another site.
Your profit is the difference between the listing you put up on Fiverr and how much it costs you to buy the same service on another website.
Let me share a real-life example.
This listing on Fiverr is selling for £16.32
Here is a very similar gig which you can buy on another website for just $1.00, which is currently 78p.
That means if you were to list a gig over on Fiverr similar to the one above you could expect to earn £15.54 less the Fiverr fees.
I think you will agree that is a pretty decent profit for less than a few minutes work.
There are literally hundreds of these opportunities available and this is a great method to earn some extra money online.
So just to recap this method for making money with Fiverr.
1 – List gig on Fiverr for x
2 – When the gig sells head over to another website and purchase a similar gig.
3 – Send all the info to your buyer on Fiverr.
4 – Pocket the difference.
I used this method years ago when I was starting to make money online.
Have a watch of this short video I shared on YouTube showing this method step-by-step.
Investing With A Twist.
Out of everything listed on this page this method is the one I am most excited about as it is something truly unique.
It has the potential to earn you money for many years down the line from simple one-time actions.
So what is this method and how does it work?
The company behind this is called Kula Brands.
Kula Brands work with entrepreneurs, inventors, and creatives to massively boost their brands.
You can earn money in a number of ways including:
- Sharing a post on facebook,
- Watching a video on YouTube.
- Supporting projects through reward based crowdfunding.
- Helping spread the word about musicians & much more.
To date, they have helped over 50 projects get their message and products out into the world.
Some of these projects are shown below.
Just so you understand how big this opportunity really is, let's take a look at Drop It Baby.
This project was launched with Kula Brands.
Members of Kula brands got involved with Drop It Baby before it launched on traditional fundraising platforms, they also got to share facebook posts, follow the company on Twitter, watch YouTube videos and in return for any of these one-time actions they now receive lifetime royalties from Drop It Baby.
This includes every sale the company makes from their website, sales on Amazon and recently they launched into walmart stores!
I wish I had found out about this company years ago as this is without a doubt one of the best ways you can start earning money online and from home.
New companies are partnering with Kula Brands every week and not only are companies partnering, but also musicians are now partnering with the company for more exposure.
Check out this video I did showing you how this all works.
The Best Way To Make Money From Home?
Affiliate marketing is a great way to make a passive income online and from home. In my opinion, it is the best way to make money online and from home.
If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s where you recommend a product or service, and if the reader clicks through and completes the purchase, you will be rewarded with a commission.
This commission can range anywhere from £1 all the way up to £10,000 and more.
You can share a lot of different companies and niches with affiliate marketing, but it does help if it is something that you have personally used and can recommend.
Did you know that you can partner with companies like Amazon, eBay, Udemy and thousands more.
The whole concept is very simple.
You join an affiliate platform and then share products or services to earn commissions.
This is one method I use daily and earn very good money for doing so……
The above was from 2019, more recently my earnings have taken a huge jump.
This is down to my number one recommendation to make money online.
Affiliate marketing is just a fantastic way to make money and if you set this up right it can become a passive income for you.
See below which I shared in my facebook group.
If you want to find out how to make money via affiliate marketing then I highly recommend this for you.
You will learn everything involved with affiliate marketing and it is the same course I took which has helped me go from a few hundred each month to earning thousands.
You do not need any experience or special skills to start making money online with affiliate marketing and the amount of money you can earn is unlimited.
Plus the course is very well laid out and easy to follow, the best bit? It costs just $7 (About £5.50)
It is a 15-day course and starts right at the beginning, at the end of the 15 days you will have a full plan in place and know your next steps to start making money online and from home.
Another resource I have for you is this ebook on affiliate marketing and it is incredibly cheap! It costs just $1.99 (so about £1.50) and it covers everything from start to finish. It is not as good as the course and doesn't come with videos and PDFs but it is still a good option for you.
Make Money From Home With Matched Betting.
I know, I know, this one sounds like the most sceptical of them all.
I can promise you though, matched betting is the real deal. It’s legal, tax-free, and pretty easy money.
Don’t let the name put you off, as it’s not gambling.
Yes, you’ll be doing it on gambling sites – but it doesn’t matter if you win or lose.
Matched betting is a way of extracting the free bet offers that bookies give out.
You will be placing a bet one way on a normal betting site, and then another bet on a betting exchange site to counteract the first bet.
You then repeat this with the free bet, which will result in you getting the free bet amount back in real cash (minus small fees).
It really is that simple. When you go to do it, it seems really complicated at first, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be flying!
I regularly earn over £500 every month using a platform called Profit Maximiser, you can get started for just £1 for a 2-week trial.
This is one of the best ways to earn some extra money online which is tax-free.
The below video shows you how I earned over £25 in less than 10 minutes using this method. And trust me, this is incredibly simple.

Make Money By Blogging.
This one really ties in with affiliate marketing, as you can use affiliate marketing on a blog – it’s a great way of making money via a blog.
There are other ways to make money through a blog though, such as:
- Sponsored posts (when a company pays you to write specifically about them)
- Products e.g. printables
- Services e.g. coaching, VA work
When it comes to choosing a topic to blog about, it’s important to think about what would earn you money, and what you would enjoy writing about.
It’s recommended to choose a niche in one of these areas: health, wealth or relationships. These usually do well, because people are willing to pay for help with these.
This platform will walk you through the entire process from A to Z.
This includes turning your idea into a blog, how to set it up, create content that attracts readers and more importantly how to start making money.
There are many mini-courses included and you will get instant access to over 500,000 products and services you can start recommending on your blog.
You can start earning with sites like Amazon, Etsy, Shopify and lots more.
Take Part In Market Research.
Market research is a very simple way to make some quick cash.
There are a number of websites that connect companies with real people who can help them with their new product/website/app etc.
Why this works well?
If you were selling a product and wanted to target a particular group of people e.g. women in London in their early 30’s that have one child, wouldn't it make sense to speak to them about it and get feedback?
Below are some great market research companies looking for people to join:
- People for Research
My favourite website and the one I recommend and use is called Respondent.
The rate of pay with this website is excellent and there are lots of different opportunities available every day.
Here is a screenshot from my dashboard right now:
The company Respondent is based over in America so the money amounts are always shown in dollars.
If you look at the bottom one in the picture above, this is paying $75 which is about £58 for 45 minutes of your time.
This is an excellent rate of pay for 45 minutes of your time.
Write and Publish a Kindle eBook.
Ever dreamed about writing a book? I’ll let you in on a little secret – most of us do!
These days, it’s easier than ever to get published, because you have the ability to self publish.
Heard of 50 Shades of Grey?
This was a self-published series, and the author has done pretty well from it…
Once you’ve written your book and you are happy to go ahead, you can publish on platforms such as Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing or Apple’s iBooks.
I did an interview with an Amazon best selling author where he shares his best tips.
Publish a Kindle Book With A Twist.
Did you know that you can publish very simple to-create puzzle book eBooks and sell them?
Also, you can do this using free tools and start earning a passive income.
The great thing about this method is that you do not need any money or skills to get started with this. There are many softwares on the market which are free and some really excellent paid ones too.
The video below walks you through this method.

Listen & Review Music.
You can actually get paid to give your opinion on music regardless of your age, music preference and it is free to start.
There are a number of websites which will pay you to listen to new music before anyone else.
You can also get paid to predict if you think a song will become a hit, listen to new radio stations and much more.
These sites pay you to listen to music.
Also here is a video walking you through this and how to get started.
Buy and Sell Domain Names.
This is one of those things that you don’t really hear about until you are in the making money online world.
When you want to set up a website, you will need to buy a domain name (the name of the website) e.g. nottaughtatschool.co.uk.
Some website names will cost more than others, because they will be very specific to what you will be using the website for, and everyone will want them!
A good way of increasing the price of any domain names that you buy is to make the website successful – and therefore appealing to any website buyers.
You could make it successful by getting a lot of page views to it and increasing the Domain Authority, and making it a good website overall.
There are a lot of domain auction sites that you can sell your improved domain on.
Create A YouTube Channel.
Lots of people get freaked out when I tell them to create a YouTube channel because they think they have to be on camera or talk.
But you really don't.
You can set up a YouTube channel without any of the following.
- Expensive Equipment.
- Being On Camera.
- Spending Hours on Video Creation.
I have several channels on YouTube which bring me in a passive income each month.
And I wasn't in any of the videos or had to speak.
Today, there are so many ways you can create and build a YouTube channel.
I have written about this and show you exactly how to set everything up in this article – How To Make Money On YouTube Without Making Videos.
Overall YouTube is a great way to make money from home BUT it does take time and effort. Also, you need to know how the platform works and what it likes to see in the videos you upload.
If you want to learn more about YouTube and getting started the right way you can take my FREE YouTube course below.
CPA Marketing To Make Money.
What is CPA Marketing?
CPA Stands for “Cost Per Acquisition”
This method to make money is very similar to affiliate marketing.
You can find thousands of companies who will pay you to send traffic or people to their offer or sign up page.
You can earn money in lots of ways including.
- Someone watches a video
- Signs up for a freebie
- Enters their email
I love CPA marketing because you can earn lots of money by simply sharing a link on facebook, Twitter and many more social platforms.
Does this work to make money?
Here is one of my campaigns using CPA marketing.
This video I shared on YouTube walks you through the entire process.
Easy Money With Cashback Sites.
Have you ever tried using cashback sites before? If you haven’t you’re seriously missing out.
It’s free money! There is so little effort required on your end, that it’s something that’s always worth doing.
It’s similar to affiliate marketing – which is essentially what the cashback sites are doing – and then giving you a share of your commission.
Say you were going to buy a new camera from Curry’s (just as an example). Instead of going straight onto the Curry’s website, you would head on over to a cashback site.
Once on the cashback site, you would search for Curry’s and then look through the deals that they have. Once you’ve found the right one (e.g. there may be one for cameras, one for laptops and so on), you click through to the site and continue your purchase as normal.
