10 Ways To Make Extra Cash Now

While it's true that the economy is getting better, it's also true that the pocketbooks and wallets of many Americans are still a bit light. It's no wonder that so many people have an interest in making some extra cash to supplement or even replace their income. That's why this blog post will give you ten ways that you can easily earn extra money.

  1. Tutoring
     If you have either expertise in an academic subject or are just good at teaching complex topics to young people, you can find work as a tutor either online or in your local area. You can look on Craigslist for tutoring opportunities in your hometown. If you want to teach students without leaving your home, you can apply for positions on websites such as Tutor.com.
  2. Teaching English
     As long as you have a degree from an English speaking university, you can find work from plenty of websites teaching English to people from many different countries. If you're truly up for some adventure, you can teach English in a foreign country and make pretty good money.
  3. Sports Referee
     If you played youth sports when you were younger, you might have barely noticed the referees who oversaw your games. Well, these men and women didn't work for free. If you know a lot about a sport that's played by young people in your local area, you can contact the youth league for information about referee positions.
  4. Bookkeeping
     Bookkeeping is one of those skills that will always be in demand. That's because business owners will always need people to keep track of their records, taxes, and financial information. Do some bookkeeping for a couple of individuals, and word of mouth will get out about your services before you know it.
  5. Writing Blog Posts
     If you're both an excellent writer and a subject matter expert, you can make a sizable income writing guest blog posts for prominent blogs. You can do this on a freelance basis or advertise your blogging services on websites such as Upwork.
  • Designing Websites
     If you keep up-to-date on the latest web design technology and best practices, you will never have to worry about how to make an extra dollar again. As long as you're not shy about advertising your web design services, you will always find someone who needs to improve the look of their existing website or create a new one from scratch.
  • Social Media Management
     Many millennials consider themselves social media experts. Then there are those souls who don't know the first thing about hashtags or retweets. If you live and die by your social media life, consider making some money by managing the social media accounts of local businesses.
  • Editing Youtube Videos
     If you can edit video, you can make a great living editing Youtube videos for other people. These days, many young entrepreneurs desire to make their living as a "Youtuber." However, most of these future Internet stars don't know the first thing about how to create professional looking videos that people want to watch. That is where you and your video editing capabilities can come into the picture.
  • Cancel Cable
     In case you haven't gotten the oft-repeated memo, you can save hundreds of dollars a year by canceling your cable television package. You can get your beloved television shows with streaming services such as Hulu, Netflix, and HBO Plus.
  • Sell Your Photos On Shutterstock
     Do you like to take photos in your spare time but don't think that anyone would have any use for the pictures you took? Try selling your photos to stock image websites such as Shutterstock. If they accept the image you upload, you can receive over $100 in payment. 

  •  You don't necessarily have to take on a second job to bring in extra money. Everyone has talents and skills they can use to supplement or even replace their income if they're extra savvy. A bit of hard work and ingenuity is all that is needed to make extra money these days.
