5 THINGS I’M DOING RIGHT NOW TO MAKE EXTRA CASH

 

 

Just a little over a month ago, I decided that if my family and I were ever going to get to have a holiday then I needed to seriously look at my income and expenditure.  I continually re-evaluate our expenditure but I wanted ways to increase my income at the same time as holding down a full time job.

 

I eventually came up with several ways of increasing my income, these I am doing now and would encourage anyone who is looking to make extra cash to also consider doing some if not all of them.

 

Currently I am undertaking 5 things that I believe will eventually help me achieve my goal of taking my family on a holiday.

 

  1. Blogging

My love for blogging I hope is evident to you.  I would encourage anyone and everyone to set up a blog.  The potential for making money is fantastic – although it will take a little time to get established but if you follow along with me as I post about how I am currently undertaking this, you will certainly do great!

 

The first step though is register with TSO Host to get your blog started.  Some articles that will help you out:

How to get free stuff in exchange for blog reviews

 

 

  1. Working as a virtual assistant

A Virtual Assistant is someone who helps out a business or business owner remotely – which is why it is referred to as ‘virtual’.  The assistant aspect is quite straightforward – if you think of a project assistant or a personal assistant – you will get the idea.

 

I registered with People per Hour and have started applying for contracts.  You too can register here and start making extra money.

 

 

  1. Mystery Shopping

I adore mystery shopping but only if the mystery shop meets my criteria which is

 

 

  • Where is it? If it’s on my way great, if not would it cost too much in petrol to get to the location?
  • Is it something I can made use of like a jumper or piece of jewellery?
  • With restaurants, am I able to take someone with me or do I need to complete the assignment on my own?

 

 

To find out about mystery shopping view my blog post here.

 

 

  1. Joined ClickWorker

As well as completing surveys another way of making some extra cash when you have a few minutes is completing tasks through ClickWorker.

 

I highly recommend if you are wanting to increase your extra income that you diversify your income streams.  So joining ClickWorker is another great way of making extra income.

 

ClickWorker is an excellent site for making extra cash.  The jobs are diverse and varied which requires you to complete small jobs from writing tasks, reviews, surveys and proofreading assignments. It is a very varied site and it can be very rewarding.

 

 

  1. Answering surveys

Answering surveys is a great way of making extra cash and vouchers.

 

Prolific Academic is a survey site but with a difference, it is mainly used by researchers from universities so the surveys you complete are that little bit more interesting – in my opinion anyway!

 

You are paid in cash so get registering today and find out how much you can make during your lunch break!

 

You can also earn vouchers as well with SwagBucksSwagbucks is a paid to click website which offers numerous tasks for you to do, some of these are surveys, daily polls and searching online.  Another great opportunity to save up vouchers for birthdays and Christmas.

 

 

So that is what I am up to at the moment to make extra cash.  I do hope you find something that inspires you or helps you earn extra cash.

 

Happy Money Making!

HOW TO SET UP A BLOG TO MAKE MONEY IN 3 EASY STEPS

So you want to set up a blog to make money?

Blogging has allowed many people to share their ideas, thoughts and views with the world.  With it a whole new world has opened up of possible ways to make money.

I will discuss the opportunities of affiliate marketing in my next post.  I will touch upon how to register for affiliate marketing and Google AdSense.

It hasn’t been plain sailing for me, while I have over 30 blog posts on my other blog here I have been rejected by Google AdSense 3 times, it’s all to do with not having enough content but as I continue to write blog posts I will keep you posted about it if I decide to give  Google Adsense another go.

 

Should I go for a free hosting blog or paid one?

Ok, this part has been the most tricky and frustrating part for me personally – the setting up a blog.  At first I was of the opinion that I didn’t want to pay any money for setting the blog up since there are ways of having a blog for free.  However, when I researched it, the best and only option to be fully in control of my content and be able to monitise my blog was to go the paid route or self hosted as it is referred to.

Having a self hosted blog also allows you to have your own name (e.g. elfeelgoodsvintage.uk / elfeelgooddeals.uk), it does look more professional than others and you can also use an array of designs which are free or you can buy a more unique theme.

How much would it cost me?

Again it took me ages to find a host which I had confidence in.  I read a lot of reviews, gave up a few times as the reviews were conflicting, then settled on TSO Host.  I can highly recommend them for several reasons.

Firstly, I was able to purchase my domain name with them for £7.19 for the entire year, secondly their basic hosting package costs me £2.99 per month and their customer service is excellent.

Did I mention before how rubbish I am at technical stuff?  Well, when I purchased my domain name and hosting package with TSO Host I sent them an email saying I wanted my website to be WordPress and could they just do that and send me the login details. Honestly this is just how rubbish I am at the technical stuff but TSO Host were excellent, within an hour they emailed me back my details, I logged in and was able to start customising the WordPress theme!

Step 1

Register your domain with TSO Host here.   Of course this is the easy part but coming up with the name can be a bit tricky so make sure you are happy with your choice, try it out with family and friends first!  TSO Host also have .blog domains now, there is just so much choice from .com to .uk to even .wales!

Step 2

Buy the hosting package for your blog with TSO Host here. I highly recommend the standard package at £2.99 per month.

Step 3

Connect your domain and your hosting.  Very simple, just email TSO Host customer service and they will do all of it for you and send you the login details.  It really is that simple.  The customer service for TSO Host is second to none.

 

So what now?

I highly recommend you set up your blog as a first step to monitising it and once you have at least 10 blog posts start on your affiliate marketing plan.

I highly recommend you go with TSO Host as a service provider who has a very competitive price and has excellent customer service and who are particularly helpful for those of us who are not very tech savvy!
