TOP 20 Ways Make Money Online 2022
1. Sell Old Clothes, Shoes…
Do you have old clothes and such hanging in your closet that you never wear?
Selling your old clothes online has never been easier, thanks to resale websites and clothing apps that let you set up shop from the comfort of your own home.
Apps like FLYP, Tradesy make it easy to sell your stuff online. No, you won’t get them for the price you paid, but you’ll make more from them than if they were sitting in your closet doing nothing.
- Flyp: Flyp connects you to a network of independent “Pro Sellers” who will sell your clothes for you. It’s a great app to start your second-hand journey with everything from clothes and shoes to bags and accessories.
- THREDUP: Offering a huge range of brands, ThredUP is available as an app on your phone or through your desktop if that’s what you prefer. When you’ve selected which clothes you’re ready to part ways with, you send them off to ThredUP, who sell them for you, keeping some commission and paying you a percentage.
- DEPOP: Originally a social network, Depop is a fun, interactive second-hand shopping experience that replicates a lot of what we like about online shopping.
- EBAY: Not just for online auctions anymore, the eBay app offers some brilliant bargains on anything from designer bags to activewear.
2. Become a Transcriptionist
If you type at the speed of light, you might be able to pull in a decent side income as a transcriptionist. Do your due diligence and find a reputable site you can look for gigs on, but TranscribeMe! is one possible place to start.
Transcription work involves converting a video or audio file to a written document. You need stellar listening skills and an excellent command of the English language to be able to take what you hear and turn it into written words.
3. Buy and Resell Stuff Online
Picture it: You find a popular toy discounted at your local Target, that’s going for twice as much on Amazon. You sell it on Amazon and make some easy money.
Oh, and BTW, this is called “retail arbitrage.” And when you find something online for super cheap that you then resell, it’s called “online arbitrage.”
Let’s put it in very simple words; retail arbitrage is all about buying low and selling high on a marketplace.
The prices vary in different markets and getting the products from a low cost market can help businessmen make profits by selling the products at a higher price on eBay or Amazon.
4. Online Tutoring
Online tutoring is the process of tutoring in an online, virtual, or networked, environment, in which teachers and learners participate from separate physical locations. Aside from space, literature also states that participants can be separated by time.
People hire tutors for everything, from math and English to singing and drawing.
You can even do it on Skype! No need to meet in person. Depending on what you’re teaching and how much experience you have, you can set a pretty decent hourly rate.
5. Start a Dropshipping Business
If you want to start an online side hustle, dropshipping is an excellent idea because it requires little money to get going. In fact, you don’t purchase any inventory until a customer buys the product from you.
6. Get Paid to Watch Ads
Look, the internet is going to force you to watch them anyway. You might as well get paid for it.
7. Write an eBook
If you’re good with words and think you have something relevant to teach people, an eBook can be a simple way to share your thoughts and make money while you do so.
And these days, it’s easier than ever to publish your work on platforms like Amazon.
8. Start a YouTube Channel
A YouTube channel is where you can eventually monetize ad space and sell stuff.
“Share your expertise,” says international speaker Adnan Kukic. “We’re all good at something. Share your knowledge online through your own blog, YouTube, or another platform. Then, take your existing content, expand on it, and finetune it into an eBook or course and sell that. This way, you’ll already have an audience to sell to as well as authority on the subject.”
9. Run an Affiliate Website
Did you know that Amazon will give you a cut of every product of theirs that you sell?! Create an online shop where everything you sell is actually available for purchase on Amazon, and make money whenever someone buys from Amazon, through your site.
10. Review Products
Nothing is more fun than sharing your opinions, and User Interviews will actually pay you to do it. Side hustles don’t have to be hard.
11. Offer Your Services on Fiverr
The cool thing about Fiverr is that you can do quick, short-term projects to make money sooner rather than later. Think of writing a blog or creating a logo.
Fiverr is an online marketplace for freelance services with low-cost providers from all over the world. The idea behind their brand is to streamline the process of hiring or getting hired as a freelancer. The online marketplace cuts out the middleman of hiring, firing and HR departments
12. Start a Blog
I’m not going to pretend this is easy, but it can work especially if the topic you focus on is something really specific. Don’t forget to throw in some affiliate links and ads for good measure.
13. Become an Influencer
Again, is this necessarily easy? Naw. But if you love taking gorgeous pictures surrounding something other people also love—like travel, fashion, or beauty—you might see serious dollar signs (and you get to have fun doing it).
Influencer marketing is a hot marketing phenomenon that everyone is talking about. It has become a mainstream marketing tactic and is no longer limited to a select few brands or agencies.
Almost every major industry has seen a rise in influencers. And brands are leveraging them now more than ever. Being an influencer has become so lucrative that it’s no wonder that everyone wants to be one in their respective domains.
