In these difficult economic conditions getting your hands on a little extra regular cash would be most welcome. But how can you do this? Well perhaps the most obvious solution is to get an additional part-time job. Having said that, the jobs market is not that great these days either and trying to hold down two jobs might seem exhausting to most people.
So are there any alternatives? The good news is that with the internet there are now a number of ways you can make a little extra cash, all from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a computer or a laptop and an internet connection. Here are a few suggestions that most people could implement pretty quickly:
Become a writer
Most internet marketers are crying out for good quality writers to produce content either for their website or for their marketing activities. If you have a certain facility with words, why not sign up as a writer with one of the many content creation services out there like iWriter or iNeed Articles? The rates of pay depend on the size of the article and your degree of expertise. If you are good, you will soon become more highly ranked. Most good writers can produce a number of 500 word articles each day and at anywhere from $2.00-$10.00 apiece, this could provide you with some decent extra income.
Join a micro jobs network
If you have a hidden talent – like writing – why not join a micro jobs site like Fiverr, Tenbux or one of the many clone sites out there? Check these sites out and you will be amazed at the variety of jobs that people will do. It could be something conventional like graphic design or SEO work, to the much more unusual such as young ladies writing messages on parts of their anatomy! The point is, there is almost certainly something that you can do that would interest people enough to buy from you. Build up a good reputation and this could provide a very healthy additional income stream.
Sell your hair
Yes you read that right! Did you know that there is a thriving marketplace to buy and sell hair? The hair is then used in hairpieces and wigs. If you have thick, lustrous and healthy hair, this could be a simple way to get a little extra cash quickly. And the beauty of it is that because your hair keeps growing, you can sell batches several times over the course of a year!
