7 Ways To Earn Extra Cash Using The Internet In 2017

Here we are in the first month of 2017, and there is no better time than now to start making some extra money using the internet!

The following are 7 proven ways you can use to start earning extra cash this brand new year.

Method #1: Freelancing

This first method involves you becoming a freelancer and providing your services through the internet.

For instance, if you are proficient in photoshop, you can provide your photoshop services on various platforms such as:

  • 99Designs
  • Fiverr
  • Upwork
  • Elance

There are a myriad of other digital services you can provide as a freelancer. For example, you can be a proof-reader and earn some cash just by proof reading content for others.

Become a freelancer today and start selling your skills for money!

Method #2: Teaching

This second method involves you teaching others how to accomplish specific tasks.

For example, you can show others how to cook pasta using your homemade recipe through an ebook.

Then, you can make even more money by selling the recipe or creating easy to follow instructional videos.

Depending on your expertise, you can also teach people how to solve specific problems through online coaching.

To do that, you can use Skype (which can be downloaded for free) to arrange coaching sessions to teach your students, and then charge them for the teaching.

There are a million and one topics you can teach… and as long as you do the research and know your stuff, you’d be able to find things you can teach! Examples include high school chemistry, relationship mending, how to do hot yoga, etc.

Method #3: Selling Tshirts

Yes, you too can design your t-shirts and sell them.. all for free.

A great platform you to do this on is Teespring.

The good thing about Teespring is that there is no cost for you to submit a design for the t-shirts.

When you first start out, all you will need to do is set a sales goal (number of shirts to sell) to achieve within a period of time, and if you reach the goal, your design will be printed and you earn the profits!

Teespring will then manufacture and deliver the shirts for you. If you do not reach the sales goal, it will just mean that the shirt won’t be manufactured and there will no loss on your part.

This is a wonderful method that takes zero investment, yet has the potential to make you an easy 4 figure payday FAST.

Method #4: Selling your old stuff

Since it’s the new year, what you can do here is some spring cleaning (as we all do)…

… then sell the stuff that you don’t use anymore!

These can be stuff like hammers lying around your home (think old tools), old unused devices (do you know an old 2011 iPad 2 still sells for $130?), and anything and everything your imagination can fathom.

Go do a google search for #2017FlipChallenge to get more ideas on stuff you can begin selling today to make a bunch of cash!

Here are some platforms that you can use to sell your physical items.

  • eBay
  • Etsy
  • Craigslist
  • Amazon

This method also works with domain names that you hold and websites that you own but don’t update anymore. Sell them on Flippa.com.

Method #5: Writing

If you are a capable writer in your field of study or interest, then you can write quality content to make a bunch of money fast.

A place you can check out if you want to make money writing is iwriter, which has an ever growing demand for quality freelance writers.

In addition, there are blogs that need paid writers and all you have to do is do a quick google search and you would find them.

Next, you also can write great informational articles for your own blog and then start promoting affiliate products or making money by placing Adsense Ads.

In the world of 2017, quality content is ever in demand. So, in my opinion, freelance writing will continue to rise in demand.

“Write good content, make good money.”

I’m going to make that one of my living mantra for the year ahead :-)

Method #6: Doing Surveys And Tests

There are still legitimate companies that pay out members for completing surveys online.

For example, there are places Inboxdollars and SurveyClub.

(Do note that there may be membership fees involved in these programs.)

You can also become a test user at UserTesting and make $10 per test of an app you do.

This here is a simple method you can start applying today to make some money fast.

Method #7: Video

Main idea: Become a YouTuber and earn via ads revenue and sponsorship.

If you are passionate about a topic or subject, starting a YouTube channel is a great way for you to earn extra cash.

First, you will need create videos and slowly build up your YouTube channel views. Once you have a substantial amount of YouTube video views, you can start to earn via ads.

To step up your revenue, you may also seek sponsorship from relevant partners.

For example, if you have a channel that talks about dog training, you can seek out dog food companies to ask if they would like to sponsor your next YouTube video. With this, the sky is the limit and you can go as high as your imagination allows.

3 Common Mistakes When Using Facebook Ads

Happy New Year to all! I hope 2017 is going to be a great year for all of us.

My last blog post was about Facebook advertising and today, I am going to share with you 3 common mistakes that are made when using Facebook Ads to promote our business.

We had learned earlier that it is not about likes, shares or comments. Instead, the focus should be on the conversion and also the ad objective. So, what else do you need to take note when setting up your Facebook Ads to promote your business?

The most common mistake is targeting the wrong group of audience.

For example, if you are selling golf clubs. Most novices would go for the audience who likes golf stars such as Tiger Woods or Jason Day, the current number 1 golfer in the world. It appears that there is nothing wrong with targeting Facebook users who like these golf stars but do they really play golf and buy golf clubs? It will be more relevant to target the audience that likes country clubs with golf courses and a much better audience could be golf coaches.

Another classic example is if you are providing tuition service, do you promote to the students or to the parents?

You will be targeting the parents instead of their children. This is because it will be the parents that are spending and sending their kids for tuition.

I hope that you are able to get my point here.

Use the Facebook Audience Insights to help you check your target audience.

The second mistake is not doing any testing at all. Some of us might think that you only need to start with one or two ads and then wait for the results. That’s not true at all. Advanced Facebook marketers will do split testing and test which image, texts, call to action and color that are the most effective, by setting up many ads and ads sets.

Testing of the image is especially important as it the most critical component of your Facebook Ads. The image is the first to attract the Facebook user’s attention and hence it can make or break your Facebook Ads campaign.

The third mistake is focusing too much on cost and it is related to the second mistake. Facebook advertising can be cheap if you had rectified the second mistake. If you only focus on the cost, you are likely to stop the promotion before you find a winning ad.

Moreover, you also need to consider the niche that you are in and the objective that you are trying to achieve. Are you aiming for traffic to bring in leads and sales or engagement such as likes, shares and comments?

Focusing on cost will affect your judgment and make you lose track of your real objective. However, you still need to aware of your budget and work with it to make sure that the ads is cost effective for your business.

This concludes the 3 common mistakes that people made when using Facebook Ads. Let’s not make these mistakes again. :)
