With summer nearly upon us, you might find yourself thinking of ways to earn a little extra money. After all, summer is far more enjoyable when you have a fat wad of bills in your pocket. Beach excursions become easier, since you will have money for snacks, drinks and gas to actually get to the beach, and then there are the amusement parks and other venues that require a cost-of-admission to get in. If you don’t want to be stuck in some boring J.O.B. (Just Over Broke) and you’d rather earn an online income that allows for much more freedom as the weather becomes blistering hot, you have come to the right place. The following six ideas are perfect for creating an online income. You just have to put one or more into action to start seeing results almost right away.
1. Summer Vacation Blog
A blog is an excellent way to create an online income. As long as the content is well-written and accompanied with eye-catching media, you can’t go wrong. If you are stuck on what to blog about, try taking a much needed getaway and blogging about it every step of the way. If you can find interesting things to blog about and you can manage to build a healthy following, you can then monetize your blog with Adsense or other advertising networks. You can also sell affiliate products if you find some that your audience is interested in. This is an excellent way to form an income online and writing a blog is fun and rewarding – once you manage to get started.
2. Recording Your Summer Transformation
Many people choose summer to completely transform themselves, such as dropping much needed weight. Whenever people manage to lose a bunch of weight, they always act as an inspiration to others who are desperately trying to do the same thing. To create an online income, you could videotape your transformation and then upload it to YouTube. With ad revenue activated, and if you can manage to rack up enough views, an income online could be yours in no time.
3. Teach Others a Skill Just in Time for Summer
Do you play an instrument, know a martial art, speak an exotic language or possess some other valuable skill that you can then teach to others? You can do so in blog or video form, thus creating an income online using the advice above, or you can write a book.
Books and ebooks can be published via Create Space, Kindle, Vervante, Kobo and other free tools. Or you can attempt to develop an income online using all the ideas above – a blog, video channel and book. It all depends on how much creative energy and effort you wish to put forth (and how much you wish to earn).
4. CPA Offers at Fairs and Festivals
Summer is also an excellent time for people to gather at fairs and festivals for a variety of reasons. Culture festivals, Rennaissance festivals and county fairs are just some examples of like-minded people coming together during some of the year’s warmer months. If you can find suitable cost-per-action (CPA) or affiliate offers from top networks like Commission Junction or Clickbank, you can create an online income by pitching your offers to all fair or festival goers.
For example, let’s say that you learned of a pet festival being held at a local park where people are encouraged to bring their pets and congregate from miles around. You could print flyers offering discounts on pet medications, pet grooming or pet training; if you can manage to find those types of offers with the affiliate networks you join. You will then earn an online commission for each action or sale you get people to take advantage of.
Use your imagination, select the most relevant offers and turn on the charm to get that income online started
5. Raid Your Closets and Shop at Good Will and Thrift Stores
One of the easiest ways to create an online income is to attempt to find items to sell on eBay or Amazon for profit.
Go through your closets and plan to sell anything you no longer want (electronics like smartphones and tablets tend to be quick sellers). You might also want to take advantage of the warmer weather to hit up Good Will and any thrift stores that might be located in your local area. These are excellent places to find great deals on items that can then be flipped for income online.
6. Put Your Skills to Good Use on Fiverr and Tenrr
If you have a marketable skill like voice over acting, writing, graphic design or programming, put that skill to work for you on websites like Fiverr and Tenrr.
These sites allow you to offer your services for five and ten dollars respectively; but the chances for an income online are even higher when you see all the upcharges the site allows you to set. Check out both sites to see for yourself that the possibilities for earnings are virtually endless.
Summer is almost here and that means it’s time to start making money in all new ways. Get started today with these six ideas that make earning an online income easier than ever.
