Direct Income – when I started making money from my blogs it was through ‘direct’ income streams. I put AdSense ads on my blog and promoted some products on Amazon as an affiliate and the more readers I had the more income began to trickle in (it really was a trickle at first). In time as my traffic grew this income grew and I was also able to experiment with other direct forms of income such as selling advertising directly to advertisers.
Thank you for this article. I am a writer who suffers from severe social anxiety so getting a job outside the house scares the bejeezus out of me (I actually wouldn’t mind having that kind of job. The process of getting it is what’s scary) so this is a big help in allowing me to have a decent income.
Products – You can create your own product, such as an ebook or computer software. You would then use your blog as a promotion tool to get people to buy your product. As long as you create a legitimate product with a whole lot of value, you should be able to get some buyers, but like everything else with a blog, you’ll need the traffic to get the sells.
The other type of product some bloggers sell is physical products. This is most common when the blogger has a business but sometimes bloggers also create merchandise (T-shirts etc) or other physical products to sell.
This is a great list and I am already do some of these. I coach people in making multiple streams of residual income. I think Direct Sales is definitely one of the most overlooked ways to start a cheap, home based business. You do need to interact with a lot of people, but with blogs and social media, that is easy!
One of the easiest ways to make money online is to register for paid survey websites where you can earn money for taking surveys. You can also search online for “website testing jobs” and get paid to record yourself testing websites. If you want something that pays better, become an online tutor or start an online freelance writing business. For more tips from our reviewer, like what kind of items you can sell online to make money, keep reading!
So many people dream of writing a book, but never go through with it. Yet no matter what, I’m sure you have experience and value you could give through writing a book. By packaging your skills and knowledge into a downloadable eBook that helps people learn a skill, advance their careers, or start a businesses, you can change someone’s life and even make good money online.
If you’re a good sales person, like hosting parties, and can find a product you love then direct sales could be a good fit for you. Some direct sales companies will allow you to market their products online and through catalogs. Other companies prefer you have one on one sessions with potential customers and also throw house parties.
hi! I am a qualified distributor for Kyani! My name is Amanda Martin! I’m sorry to hear about your condition, our products do help with inflammation as well as overall health and wellness!

Wellness is not a ‘medical fix’ but a way of living – a lifestyle sensitive and responsive to all the dimensions of body, mind, and spirit, an approach to life we each design to achieve our highest potential for well-being now and forever. -Greg Anderson
Parking is at a premium in most thriving cities. Renting an unused space in your driveway or vacant deeded parking space can generate additional income. Advertising availability on Craigslist exposes this opportunity to local people, and up-and-coming apps like JustPark also allow you to easily rent out your parking space when it’s not in use.
Hi Alexa, I just want to thank you sincerely for this article – it was such a breath of relief for me (in a BIG way)! I own a small business and am due soon and was hoping for a way to seek out an at-home supplemental income but was only landing on continual scams (and that’s from someone who considers themself a thorough researcher). Again, I cannot thank you enough for all the legitimate links and sources (finally!). I’ll certainly be sharing this article.

Those same courses are a great starting place. How can you make your course better or more interesting? Do you have experience others don’t?
For example, the current price (as of this writing) for the Billionaire Blog Club is $499 (cheaper if you go through the 12-Day Blogging Bootcamp). To make $1,000 this month from the site I will need to sell 2 seats.

User Testing – User Testing pays $10 a pop for testing websites. A test usually takes about 15-20 minutes. The purpose is for a website owner to watch someone, who is new to their site, try to navigate it. The value that the site owner gets by watching an actual user experience is worth a ton, but $10 isn’t a bad pay-out.
If you love to travel and find yourself randomly searching for airfare sales or browsing Lonely Planet, why not carve out a niche for yourself as a private travel agent? My friend, Mark Jackson did just that, making extra money online with his travel consulting side business. Start with word of mouth recommendations from friends who know they can count on you for the cheapest flights, and then move on and create a Facebook or LinkedIn group to invite people who want to stay on top of the latest deals. Eventually you could spin this into a full-time consultancy teaching people how to make their dream trip a reality.
Looking at the whole landscape of Kyani compared to others, you will get a sense of why they are going through the growth rates in which they are. A company focused on the quality of their health supplements first, leads to a greater opportunity for you as a distributor. Some will not fancy the MLM aspect but want to get their hands on the product for its benefits and exotic ingredients. We gave them a slight ding because it is expensive and is a multi-step process to order online. All in All, Kyani deserves the momentum it has created because they have their ‘ducks in a row’ and are firing on all the right elements to make up a quality company and product line. Let us know in the comments below if you have tried or are thinking about using the products. Your feedback is important to all of us!

Tell Wut is a survey site where you can win prizes and earn rewards for sharing your opinion. Most surveys award 5 to 15 points per survey, but you can also earn points by referring friends (25 points), creating an account (100 points) and providing your information (100 points).

Originally designed for morning use, Kyani named its first product Sunrise, so as to encourage folks to imbibe the liquid dietary supplement containing numerous fruit and vegetable based superfoods prior to getting the day started.

Got a thing for numbers? Plenty of companies pay talented contractors who are good at data analysis, making this a potentially lucrative way to make money online, if you have the right credentials and experience. Platforms like Upwork and Digiserved are just two of many websites that are great for freelancers with an analytical prowess.
Watch for red flags. According to the Federal Trade Commission, some businesses posing as MLM companies are actually illegal pyramid schemes. Pyramid schemes scam recruits into buying into a company and almost always result in a loss to the recruit. Some things to look out for are:
With many scams out there, there are a select few great “Survey Sites” that bring in a decent amount of extra money. The best one I’ve experienced so far, is CashCrate. Their referral program is by far the easiest and fastest way to earn hundreds to thousands of extra cash.
Yes, it just depends what you’re looking to get into. For the past year and a half I’ve worked about 20 hours a week writing for blogs and have pulled in anywhere from $2,000 – $3,000 per month. Now I’m doing more virtual assistant work and in the next few months should bring in quite a bit more money. (I’ll also be working 40 hours per week though)
