Financial Tips: How to Make Some Extra Money Online


Since the COVID-19 pandemic swept our world, the internet has taken over our lives. The internet has been quite a huge part of our world for a while, but it didn’t become firmly integrated with real-life until so many people were forced inside.

Because of this, many people are wondering how to make money online. They’re right to wonder this — it’s easier than ever to earn money online.

This article will walk you through a few financial tips to help you earn some extra cash online.

Sell Art/Entertainment

If you’re particularly gifted in any of the arts or entertainment-oriented crafts, you can easily turn this into some extra cash on the internet. It’s simply a matter of figuring out which site is best for you considering your particular skill.

If you’re a phenomenal writer, you’d do well to create a Patreon or Substack. These sites allow you to publish articles online that people can read for paying a few every month.

Patreon is also great for creators of video content. If you’re a short-film maker or think you have what it takes to create a vlog, consider uploading content to YouTube, and linking that profile to exclusive Patreon content. A small, dedicated following is all it takes to make significant extra money.

In fact, a small dedicated following should be something of a mantra for you when creating art on the internet. You’d do much better to focus less on quantity, and more on quality — you never know if one of your big fans might commission you for something large.

Get on a visually-oriented social media site like Instagram if your talent is in the visual arts. There, you can demonstrate your products, and take commission through your DMs, once people know your work.

Answer Surveys

Believe it or not, there are companies out there who want to know what regular people like you have to say about certain issues. This is the point of polling/survey websites.

On these sites, you take some time to answer questions — giving data out to certain companies — and receive money as a result. One of the best examples of this website, Harris Poll, provides a ton of different types of online polls you can take to receive cash. You’ll never have to be locked into answering a survey you don’t like.

The key to making extra money online is to find all of the strange little places to bring in extra cash and to make use of them. There’s no easier way out there to make money online — while actually doing work — than answering surveys.

Make Use of These Financial Tips

As you can see, it’s a lot easier to make money on the internet than many people realize. In today’s gig-based economy, you don’t need to have a job to make money — and you don’t have to be a freelancer to control how you make your income.

Make use of these financial tips and you’ll see your bank account swell in no time.
