If you’ve got a background in acting, or if people have said you’ve got a voice made for the radio, you can make extra money recording audio versions of independent and popular books. Sites like ACX connect authors with audiobook performers.

The difference between Amazon and EBay is that EBay (though still filled with new items) is seen as a used marketplace between individual parties, whereas Amazon (which is filled with offers for new and used merchandise from the 3rd parties) is viewed as a Wal-Mart-type superstore.

Sell things to pedestrians. Entrepreneurial sorts sell things like cold drinks on hot days or hot nuts in winter.

And yes, if you do commit to something like blogging, or writing and freelancing, you can and will make a living (you could even make way more than you could ever at your day job.

15. Give away premium content for extra $$$ – If you are producing mind-blowing, awesome content that visitors can’t get enough of… you can always try asking them to pay for some of it!

But start cautiously as it really does require some experience.
Swagbucks is certainly worth checking out, but the site could become a little addicting. If you’re going to use it solely for your search engine queries, I’m all for that. After all, we all use search engines anyways, so why not use a search engine that rewards us with free money and prizes? In this regard, using Swagbucks wouldn’t take up any extra time at all.
Perhaps the one to make money effortlessly is to simply part away with items that you no longer need. Currently, it makes sense to me as I am planning to move from the east to the west coast. This allows me to make my move a lot easier as it earns me some pocket money.
