How Just About Everybody Is Making More Money These Days*

*This is a collaborative post*

It seems that just about everybody is finding awesome ways to make more money these days, without having to do overtime at their 9-5 jobs. Some people are even becoming so successful that they can leave their 9-5 jobs and become totally freelance and financially free. Doesn’t that sound like a dream?

Here are a few ways you could start making more money - but make sure you’re in it for the long haul!


Blogging is still alive and well, but many people are now choosing to create ‘microblogs’ using Instagram. All you have to do is snap a high quality picture of something you know will appeal to your audience, whether that’s a cool outfit, a cute animal, or something entirely different. Now, you’re not going to make money by posting one high quality picture; not even if it gets a lot of likes. However, if you can keep up posting with Instagram, you might just be able to build up a following and make some money from your Instagram posts. Brands might send you things. However, this is something that you really need to do because you enjoy it, and not because you’re trying to make a lot of money.

Affiliate Links

Using affiliate links on a blog is a great way of recommending products to people that you really like whilst making money at the same time. You could make money when people click the link, or even when they make a purchase. It may only be a small amount, but if you build up your following and create lots of high quality, informative posts, you could end up making a decent amount of money from this. This is something you really need to be in for the long haul, so make sure you don’t get impatient and wonder why you’re not making a ton of money right away.


Vlogging can be a lot of fun, especially if you have some expertise or important information to share. Just about anybody can start a vlog, and it’s as easy as snapping a video with your iPhone and then uploading it. You don’t have to be perfect when you’re just starting out. Well edited, high quality videos are attractive, but that won’t automatically make you successful, especially if you’re just saying the same thing as everybody else. Try to offer your own unique expertise and viewpoint.

You can make money from your vlogs with affiliate links, or by making money when somebody clicks on an ad. It won’t be much to begin with, which is why you need to be committed to consistently uploading high quality content. You should never compromise on the quality of content just to get it out there in the first place. Have fun with it, yes, but take your channel seriously, too.


Buying property and then renting it out could be a great way to make a lot of money. However, you do need to spend a lot of money to make a lot of money. Many people build up their portfolios slowly, and it can take a lot of time before you actually have enough property to make a profit on and become financially independent. You could look at properties like if you’re looking to buy in an area that gets a lot of tourists. However, you might want to purchase a property located near you to begin with.

Remember that when choosing property, you need to remember that you’re liable to pay if there’s nobody in your property. Could you afford the rent and other various costs? Consider how much work you’re going to be able to handle too. Will you be willing to get up in the dead of night to fix an emergency plumbing issue for a resident? If not you need to find a property management company that can take care of things like this for you - costing you even more. You might have dollar signs in your eyes when you think about buying and renting out property, but it’s a long game just like anything else on this list.


If you have a good level of knowledge in a particular area, Ebooks are a great way to share it with the world. Writing and marketing an ebook isn’t too difficult. There are courses and videos on it all over the internet so you can get started as soon as you feel compelled to. You may only make a small amount from one of your ebooks, but as you learn and write new books, you could stand to make more money. Eventually this could be a great passive income source that helps you to make money while you sleep.


Dropshipping is great because you get to sell and market products, but you don’t actually have to come into contact with them. Of course you need to be prepared to deal with issues and the odd disgruntled customer if your product doesn't live up to expectations, so don’t expect it to be all sunshine and rainbows. Make sure you do your research and start off with a really small product to see how you get on.

Get Cashback When You Shop

Don’t just buy stuff without looking to see if you can get cashback on it first. Chances are you will be able to and you could end up saving a lot of money! All you have to do is make the purchase you were going to make anyway through a special link and your cashback will be tracked. You may need to wait weeks before you can access it, but your cash can really build up this way!

Sell Things You No Longer Use/Want

Go through your things and imagine that everything has a price tag on it. If you haven’t used something for a while, consider selling it. You can use sites like Depop and Ebay, but you could also use Facebook or even host a garage sale.

How will you start making more money?
