With a network allowing you to reach the world population from the click of a key board, it is no surprise that the internet is a powerful tool for making money. However, with thousands of competitors, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd enough to be successful. The good news is there are ways to make easy money online and I’m going to share these with you.
There are some important things to know before venturing out on your money making journey:
Find a Niche:
Finding a small niche reduces the amount of competition you will be facing (especially much larger organisations). The more unique your niche, the less competition and also the more inclined your clients will be to buy your service above someone else’s.
Try to stand out from the crowd. Now, this is much easier said then done however, it could be something as simple as the domain name of your website or the way your content is written or the way you describe your products – it is really down to you.
Take supreme for example, week after week at 11am on Thursday, supreme updates its online shop releasing new products which sell out in minutes if not seconds. Purchasing this desirable brand means you can sell these for a quick profit. But you’ll have to be quick as the culture is ruled by the infamous ‘bots’. The most desirable items include box logo items and the highly anticipated supreme collaborations.
One word – Yeezy! If you haven’t been living in a bubble for the past few years, you’ve probably heard of Kanye West and more importantly his influence in the ‘sneaker’ and fashion community. If you can get your hands on his highly anticipated shoes, selling them is guaranteed to make you hundreds.

2- Offer Gigs on Fiverr
If you have experience in graphic design, writing or accounting, you can offer gigs on fiverr where you charge people a minimum of £5 to complete one of jobs. Fiverr is a huge community with thousands of potential customers.
Redouble is an online marketplace on which artists can upload their artwork and create their own online portfolio selling their art printed on phone-cases, t-shirts, posters and many more. Although standing out from the crowd can be hard, if you have a particular talent for art, this could be a great way for you to earn more online.
4- Affiliate Marketing
This is perfect for those of you who may already have a large following on social media. It is as simple as signing up to an affiliate program and sharing a link for an item you think your followers would be interested in and if they buy it, you will earn a nice commission. For example, if you have a large following on an Instagram account about health and beauty, you could market a new lipstick and earn a commission on each sale made from your link.
5- Write Articles
If you have any qualification and/or experience in writing articles or blogs, you can sell your writing to blog pages. Now, although this can be hard to make a large amount of money at first, as you build a portfolio of successful example articles, your earning can go through the roof. Like everything this takes time and patience but there is no reason why this cant be a way of earning a large sum of money.
6- No Risk Matched Betting
“Hands down the quickest way to make a lot of money”. Many people utilise no risk matched betting to make hundreds from the comfort of their home. It works by taking advantage of free bets regularly offered by betting sites through ‘matching’ them at a betting exchange. Matched betting eliminates the risk (you are betting both for and against a certain outcome). This means you squeeze out the free bet so you have the potential to make hundreds.
7- Sell Revision Notes
Already made revision notes? why not sell them? If someone else could benefit from your hours of work, and are not willing to do them theirselves, you can sell your notes. This won’t make you a large amount of money, however, uploading your notes online for sale, will contribute to your passive income.
8- Buying and Selling Domains
Buying and selling domain names is a simple process, buy a domain name that contains key words you think are going to be searched thousands of times a month for as little as £10 from sites like Godaddy , and flip them on sites like flippa (excuse the pun).
9- Sell Your Old Things On Ebay
Perhaps the most obvious and easiest way of making money! this can be done by anyone. Simply list the things you don’t use anymore on eBay and watch the cash come flooding in. This is the most simple and easiest way of making money online.
10- Develop Apps
This one requires some expertise in code, but if you have experience in computer science or app development, developing and selling apps can provide an income from sales of your app. Also, apps have the opportunity to be monetised with ads.
