7 ways to earn money on the Internet on the sideNormally I present here in my blog professional and permanent ways how to earn money on the Internet.
But not everyone is self-employed or wants to earn a full-time income. Many just want to earn a few euros on the side and that is also possible.
Therefore I present in the following 7 possibilities, how one can earn money besides in the Internet.
7 possibilities besides in the Internet money to earn
Before I introduce the different possibilities, I would like to point out once again that this is not about sources of income, from which one can live in a short time. Apart from the fact that this isn’t that easy anyway, the following tips are meant for all those who really want to earn a little extra money without much effort.
This is neither a long-term business model, nor will you be able to earn larger amounts, but many are happy about a little more money.
If you like writing, have a good general knowledge and also like to deal with new topics, writing texts is a good and fast way to earn money on the Internet.
Platforms like textbroker.de have specialized in exactly this activity and offer the possibility that one earns something with the writing of texts. But also more general websites, such as bloggerjobs.de, offer a variety of jobs for those who can and want to write texts.
The earning possibilities are not very high, especially at the beginning, but you get a quite decent salary. Later you can earn even more if you have many satisfied regular customers and are recommended.
The market for small network services is booming. This is of course due to the fact that many simply want to earn a few euros in addition, but also the clients appreciate that for small tasks motivated contractors are available.
Platforms such as clickworker.de or mylittlejob.de make it possible to take over simple tasks such as transcriptions, content creation, research or even the creation of graphics. Of course, there should be some experience and know-how in the respective area. But then you can easily get small jobs.
You won’t get rich with that either (as with none of the tips in this article), but for in between these platforms offer small jobs to earn a little extra. Depending on the order it can be more than just pocket money.
Family and friends recruit
There are others besides the classic affiliate programs that explicitly exclude the advertising of friends or family members. So for example telekom-profis.de, where it concerns exactly that. By recruiting new customers in one’s own family and circle of acquaintances, one receives remuneration.
This “Affiliate Marketing light” is of course particularly suitable for those who have a large circle of acquaintances and like to recommend products to others. However, you should proceed cautiously and not want to sell everything to everyone. Otherwise you will quickly have a few fewer friendships.
This kind of source of income is well suited for all those who pass on recommendations anyway and are very contact-friendly.
Of course you can also do real affiliate marketing on the side. You don’t even need your own website. Meanwhile you can use almost all affiliate programs on third party platforms like Facebook or YouTube. If you are already very active there anyway and publish content, then you can earn money with additional built-in affiliate links.
Of course you should be careful not to exaggerate and only use thematically matching affiliate links. In the past, current offers have proven to be good, because who is not happy if you can save something.
Depending on the range of your own profile, you can even earn quite a lot of money in this way, but usually it is after all a small extra income.
Sell on eBay
This is not about a professional shop on eBay, but about private sales. Each of us has things in cupboards or under the bed that he or she no longer needs. Unfortunately it’s hard for many of us to part with them, although we haven’t looked at them for ages. I know that very well myself.
You can quickly turn this dead capital into money on eBay. Simply photograph and insert a proper description text, already it can start. For bulky things, ebay-kleinanzeigen.de is more suitable, because it is mainly about regional sales.
Of course the sale of own things is not a permanent source of income, but eh one some things eternally with itself drags, one can get for it nevertheless rather some money.
Sell own products
Do you have a craft hobby and like to make your own products? Why don’t you sell them online?
Platforms like etsy or dawanda offer exactly this possibility. Here you can sell your own creations without any technical know-how or other effort.
Of course, you should do some advertising and like everywhere good photos are very helpful, but otherwise these are probably the best platforms for creative people. There are even people who live from selling their product on these websites, even if it takes something like that.
Surveys belong to the earning opportunities on the Internet, which I only recommend to a limited extent. There is now the possibility of earning a few euros per survey answer, but of course this is not really lucrative or permanent.
Nevertheless, there are a lot of platforms on the net that offer just that. For example, on mylittlejob.de there are many survey offers where you earn a few Euros each. Often there are however also premiums, which one gets in response, in addition, these are money worth, like e.g. with meinungsstudie.de.
If you really only want to earn a few euros every now and then, paid surveys are worth a look.
Beware of dubious offers
Who accepts such small works or orders, should pay attention in any case to dubious offerers. Unfortunately, you always read about promises that are too good to be true. And so it is. A few thousand Euros on the side for little work is just not possible on the Internet, even if it sounds very tempting.
At the latest if one must buy then also still something, the alarm bells should go on. The Internet offers many possibilities to earn money, but also here market-economical bases apply and to give away has nobody what.
