Different Ways To Make Money Online That ISN’T Blogging

AD – This is an advertorial feature with J5Fashion

Over the years, there’s been more and more different ways to make money. Were my grandparents alive, they’d be utterly dumbfounded and confused over the fact I make money from writing things on online (and that’s after I’d have explained to them what “online” was!) But, technology is a wonderful thing (sometimes) and it’s definitely opened up our world and opportunities. So here are some different ways to make money online that ISN’T blogging:

Buying and selling wholesale clothing

Fashion is a big market so selling clothes online could be a good way to make money and even turn it into a full-time career. J5Fashion are a supplier of wholesale men and women’s clothing to big UK and non-UK based retail companies and wholesalers such as Boohoo, Pretty Little Thing, Pink Boutique, I Saw It First and more where we are also encouraging the newly start-up in-store and online boutiques selling via social medias and retailers such as justyourotufit etc. with an affordable fashion trend collections from past 10+ years.

J5Fashion supply wholesale clothing in the latest trends in both men and women’s fashion. Their new in women’s section contains some great pieces of faux leather, PU and satin shin which are all noteworthy trends at the moment. Some of my top picks include:

Obviously fashion is a huge industry so I can totally see the appeal of buying and selling clothes online. If you’re into fashion, this could be a good one for you to get your foot in the door of the fashion industry and spark up inspiration for selling your own pieces perhaps. The HUGE range on J5Fashion of options and styles is bound to spark inspiration. After 12 years of service, J5Fashion offer brilliant customer service, quick delivery and have a friendly team who are always on hand to help.

Survey sites

Obviously this one isn’t going to make you big bucks but it’s a handy little option if you’re looking to make a little extra cash each month. I wrote a blog post last year about the 3 top survey sites I use to make extra cash on my blog.

Matched betting

This isn’t something I’ve dabbled in yet although I really want to. Truth be told, I’m a little nervous about it. But some have had fantastic results on using matched betting, making hundreds a month. Matched betting is a technique whereby you profit from the free bets and incentives offered by bookmakers. If you’re a betting person, this one might be worth a try!

Sell your own creations on eBay or Etsy

A pretty obvious one but a good way to make money online that isn’t blogging is to sell your own products, artwork and creations on a platform such as eBay or Etsy. If you’re looking to really grow a business from it – Etsy is the one to use. This is a good option for those who still enjoy being on social media and promoting their own work.

Mystery shopping

I’ve done a bit of mystery dining in the past and although I was only paid for the meal, it was a great experience. Mystery shopping is where companies hire agencies to recruit mystery shoppers for various jobs and assignments. Shoppers will have to report back to the agency and receive a fee for doing so.

Fiverr or freelancing

If you’re not a blogger but love writing, then this is a good one for you. Freelance writing can be a great earner once you build up your reputation and client base. Often with repeat clients coming back to you for work time and time again. Fiverr is a good place to start with your freelance writing career!

Sell things you no longer need

Another fairly obvious one but ensuring you have a regular clear out of your house and sell the things you no longer need rather than just throwing them in the bin is a great way to make money. So if you don’t fancy getting up at 4am to do a car boot sale, check out eBay or Depop instead!

Do you make money online? Do you use any of the methods mentioned here?

  1. I love this post! Surveys are a brilliant option!

    1. They really are!

  2. Some good ideas. Selling is definitely a possibility – I sold socks on ebay for a while and was able to pay for 2 years of hosting my blog‘s website with it. Start with your old things and once you make enough money, you can buy new stock with it.

    1. Wow that’s amazing!

  3. These are some different ways than usual. Good list!

  5. cool!!!! thanks for sharing

  6. I use some survey sites to get a bit of money off shopping and things and that’s quite handy even though it’s not big money. I’ve also just signed up to Fiverr, although I haven’t quite fgured out how it works yet so any tips are welcome!

    1. Survey sites are handy for sure! I love prolific 😌 I don’t use fiverr personally!

  7. Awesome…as for me I ain’t that good in salesmanship,, I would rather go for referral on links nd advertisements-any one with reliable clue on that?

  8. I keep hearing amazing things about match betting but it terrifies me, I have no idea how betting works, I did the Grand National once about 20 years ago but was devastated for the poor horses and NEVER did it again.

    But the idea of lots of money always appeals!

    Great tips, I need all the help I can get for Wedding funds!

    1. Ah yeah I’d never bet on the grand national any more – I used to when I was younger cow my parents did but then I stopped for the same reason. You can bet on basically anything with matched betting tho – doesn’t have to be horse racing!

      1. I might have to have a look x

  9. Very great article! I tested most of these in the past and can agree that it’s a nice way to earn extra income 🙂 You have an article similar to mine!
