5 easy ways to make some extra cash online

It is important to note that making money online requires a lot of work and sometimes a lot of dedication.

And unlike a salary where you don't have to wait for a whole month to get an alert, the feeling that comes with it is always satisfying; especially when you're not killing yourself in the name of nine to five.

However, it is important to note that making money online requires a lot of work and sometimes a lot of dedication.

It is not as easy as it may sound because it can be quite demanding; on the other hand, it is not difficult as well.

Here are five easy ways to make some cool cash online

1. Freelance

Freelance workers are sometimes represented by a company or a temporary agency that resells freelance labor to clients; others work independently or use professional associations or websites to get work.

With this in mind, making money from the comfort of your home cannot be easier than this.

So, whether you're a web designer or a web developer, a graphic designer, a social media marketer, or a writer, all you need do is register yourself on a freelance market and fill in your profile.

Examples of the freelance market include, Up work, Guru, Freelancer; Fiverr, Peopleperhour, Toptal, iWriter, and Simplyhired.

2. Blogging

Everyone seems to know what blogging is, but not everyone knows that blogging is something that requires patience, persistence and discipline.

As a matter of fact, it may mean writing everyday for over a year before you really start to see any money from it; sounds discouraging, right?

But it shouldn't be if you really want to start making money as a blogger. Almost every blogger will tell you that it is normal to spend one or even two years to build your blog, your brand and your authority before you can start making real cash online.

So, you think you can become a blogger, go ahead and become one. After all, if it is properly done, it can generate some good amount of cash.

3. Become a virtual or personal assistant

If flexibility is what you're looking for, then you should go for this because as a virtual assistant, your job can be profiting and flexible at the same time.

You'll have the freedom to maintain multiple clients at once which means you can easily fill gaps in your week or work overtime if you need to.

A virtual assistant will generally charge £15-20 depending on the specifics of their job.

And examples of the types of jobs include; blogger outreach, product listings, research and responding to emails.

4. Content writing

If you have good writing skills and know how to present ideas then you're in for this. Trust me, people are making money from offering this service.

As a freelance writer, you will be paid on the basis of the number of characters or words you write. And another interesting thing about freelance writing is that you're paid, based on the level of your writing skills.

So the more you write...the more you develop your writing skills...the more money you make.

To start writing content online, sign up on any of the aforementioned freelance marketplaces and find writing categories to apply for.

5. Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals.

Guess where you come in? Yes, you're the referral. And it goes to say that you get a commission when someone buys the product.

And just like content writing, affiliate marketing is organized in such a way that the more product you sell, the more money you will make. To start selling products, you need to join the affiliate network and find a product you can market online.

You will be given a link to your ID which you will promote online when you join. And as people click and buy the product through your link, you get a percentage.
