Infographics are currently an extremely popular type of media. An infographic showing information or data in an interesting and fun way can help engage an audience and generate numerous likes and shares. As infographics take more time to create than just simply uploading an image, busy website owners are prepared to pay for custom infographics. And don’t worry, an infographic can be created using simple design software such a Canva. So extensive graphic design skills are not necessary, just a creative eye.
Sign up for a reputable affiliate network: Aside from Amazon, there are dozens of large reputable affiliate networks, such as Share-A-Sale, Clickbank, and Skimlinks, that specialize in connecting you with merchants who are looking for affiliates to sell their products. They charge relatively low commission fees for the privilege of connecting you with merchants, and the merchants on these sites tend to offer much higher commission percentages or set dollar amount payouts.
If you live close to an area that sees a lot of festivals or other outdoor events, you may be able to make money allowing people to park in your driveway or on your lawn. Vehicles driving around your grass, especially if it has recently rained, can potentially rip up your lawn, meaning it’s a likely trade off between bringing in extra cash and having a yard full of healthy grass.
Some work platforms give you fairly mundane tasks to do which pay a few cents a piece. These are commonly called “Turk” jobs after the original mTurk launched by Amazon years ago. The work is fairly easy, usually only taking less than a minute to complete a task, but the pay is fairly low, making it necessary to do a lot of tasks before making significant money.
Doing Fiverr gigs are a great way to build up a portfolio while still making money at the same time. Fiverr is mostly used for marketing purposes, which can be a great way to show off your graphical skills, or even write content. The website will take 20%, leaving you with $4 for the average gig, but doing a few a day adds up to substantial money by the end of the month.
This is similar in concept to micro-tasks, except that it is oriented toward specific services, such as cleaning services, pest inspection, handyman services, house cleaning, lawn & garden services or any of the skilled trades. It might actually be more accurate to say that it is a platform where skilled service providers can offer their services to site visitors, similar to Angie’s List.
How much will you make? I think my best month with Google AdSense was almost $5,000 over the last ten years. That amazing month blew my mind since it was actually near the beginning of my blogging journey. When you go from making zero to $5,000 in a month, that will rock your world. For me, it also got me even more excited because I knew there were other ways to monetize.
