Good at designing, programming, video editing or something else? Sell your skills on Fiverr. The process seems profitable, but it’s not as simple as it may seem. Competition is fierce and to really rake in the big projects, you need credibility on Fiverr. This usually means having to do really small and simple projects before earning anything significant.
I also recall a famous test John Chow did a few months back to see what was better email marketing or social marketing. Now of course he has a huge list along with a huge Twitter following so the test was to send a recommend for a specific offer that he hadn’t marketed anywhere else and with all the Twitter hype you would figure that would be the winner, yet still sending a recommend to his email list came out on top making the most sales.
Hello, I'm a struggling grad student living in Europe who's funding ended. I live in a house with unstable internet so can't teach english online as I work in coffee shops or libraries. I need to make at least 1000euros a month for the minimum to survive...Any recommendations? Trying to finish my thesis on the side and find a job but my visa and lack of fluency in my current country are proving to be a big issue...

Once you’ve had children, many parents find themselves caught in the trap of needing to work but wanting to stay home with their kids. Creating your own parenting blog can not only be a way to make some money, it can also help you connect with other parents and make sense of those crazy sleepless early parenting years (it does get easier don’t worry!)
The more online clout you have as a business, the more money you’ll make. If you’re known for making lasting connections (as is the case with GetVoiP above), then you’ll have no issues building your online brand. You’ll be recognized in your community and begin to build a buzz in your industry. Tracking your numbers (how many people view your site, click each ad, and make a purchase from that click) gives you the leverage to expand this part of your business, enabling you to continue building your online rep.
Test websites. Remote usability testing means getting paid to navigate a website for the first time and giving feedback to the website owner. Most tests take approximately 15 minutes, and you can get paid up to $10 for each test. A test involves performing a scenario on the client’s website and recording yourself doing it. For example, you might be asked to go through the process of selecting and purchasing an item on a retailer’s website.
Writing copy for websites is another great freelancing option for those who have a way with words. Copywriting can involve writing the text for websites, press releases, promotional offline materials including leaflets and brochures, and any other professional text for businesses. Writing copy can be better paid than blog writing. However, clients can be more fussy, as they want the highest quality writing for the forefront of their website or advertising campaigns. Many freelance writers offer both copywriting and blog writing amongst their services. This can be a good way to juggle regular but lower paid clients (blogging) with the higher paid but ad-hoc project based copy work.
