Making Money Online in Few Unusual Ways

Previously I wrote about 15 creative ways to earn money online. This post is in similar line and talks about three unusual ways of making money online. There are some other unusual ways as well. Like using particular search engine or answering surveys, etc. These three have generally higher payout than other ways you can earn money through internet.

Online Money Making

One of the most anticipated recent trends is that we are entering a new age of ‘sellsumers’.  This term can come around as the result of the global economic recession and the necessary resultant rise in entrepreneurial spirit and drive.

More and more people are being required to make some extra money on the side, be it doing odd-jobs for friends, one-off shifts or working online. (Related  – Inbox dollar is a service that pays you for your regular web surfing. Also a $5 instant money when you sign up)

The internet is acting as a catalyst in this process.  There are more and more opportunities now available on the internet if you’re looking for a way to make a buck on the side.

Making this move could be the first step for someone who is ultimately aspiring to become fully self-employed.

There are countless ways to get yourself going on this path, such as testing for or writing for websites, being rewarded for giving your opinion, etc.

Website Testing

If you have ever been browsing the web and landed on a site which has some blatant flaws in its design, then you are already doing a potentially money making activity.  Companies pay for normal consumers to access their sites and give feedback on certain aspects of them.

You might find that the contact information is not easy enough to find or that the colour scheme being used is far from appealing.

Website owners value your thoughts – as an average site visitor – as it allows them to make the necessary improvements to increase their site’s performance and ultimately increase conversions.

Being a Bingo Chat Host

Another easy way of making money is by hosting a bingo chat room.  With the current surge in online bingo, there are sites opening left, right and center, meaning it should not be particularly difficult to find this sort of work.

This type of work is ideal if you are already working at home on something else and want to have an extra income on the side.  However, this might not be your cup of tea if you’re not into online bingo in the first place.

Writing Content for Websites

With every other internet-related trend comes the increased demand for content.  As more opportunities for earning income online become apparent, this consequentially leads to more demand for content.

There are more and more websites being created these days which need to be filled.  Also, the increase in e-commerce has led to an increased number of affiliate sites and blogs, which operate with the sole purpose of earning money through linking to other sites.

Every affiliate, blog and review site needs to be filled with fresh new content to keep visitors coming back and boost its SEO performance.

The money-making opportunities that the internet creates are endless.  This list summarizes just a select few examples.  If you want to quit the day job and start something for yourself, this is undoubtedly a low-cost and achievable way to start.
