It’s hard to ignore the appeal of making real money online—after all, we live in a world where bloggers land book and movie deals, top YouTubers are multimillionaires, and celebrities collect thousands of dollars in exchange for a single sponsored tweet.
But you don’t need millions of YouTube subscribers or IG followers to make real money online. Here are three strategies for pointin’ and clickin’ your way to some extra income.
Listing your items for sale online is an easy way to declutter and make some cash at the same time. Consider online marketplaces, auction sites and buy-back sites for electronics, textbooks, movies, games and designer clothing.
Put your skills to work online. Consider selling your creative work on your own website or through an established marketplace, or look to get paid for your extra hours by doing freelance work for businesses in need of your talents.
If you have some extra time here and there, selling your feedback is another way to earn some money online. Options include taking surveys, critiquing videos or advertisements, writing product reviews, recording video testimonials, and user-testing websites and apps.
