If you have a penchant for design or are familiar with blog/website set up, then this is a service that you can create and market to others. This involves creating logos, social media icons, headers and other design elements of a website. I like to refer to this as fairy blog mother services for newbie bloggers who don’t have a clue around how to set up a properly structured blog. I’ve done this often for new bloggers wanting to set up a website but who have no clue about where to get started.
Equally, you can charge businesses to ‘claim’ their listing, a method used by many large directory sites like Google Business and Yelp. This involves companies paying to upgrade their listing and adding information such as their web address, social media links, images, and more. Other revenue streams include charging for ad space, adding affiliate links and even charging for services and products on your directory site.
You may decide to create free videos as extra content for your blog, and not sell them at all. If this is the case then you can still make money from these videos by selling advertising space on them (in the same way as discussed for monetizing podcasts). Once you have high volumes of traffic visiting your blog, and watching your videos, you can charge businesses to advertise at the beginning of your videos. Use website’s like Izea to help you connect with companies willing to pay to advertise on your blog.
eBay is the most popular global auction site around and is a great place to sell items you no longer want. If you are looking to earn some extra cash, start out by looking around your house for things you no longer want; list them on eBay and watch as customers bid on them. You can also purchase clearance sale items and thrift store finds and make a couple dollars profit by listing them as well. The key to selling on eBay is to do your research and find out what the hot items are.
