Four ways to earn extra money

This beautiful infographic by Zaarly (published here) outlines creative ways to earn cash even if you are unemployed. Whether you’re having a hard time making ends meet, struggling to get out of debt, or just looking for an extra source of income for a dream vacation, these ideas certainly deserve a second look.


If you have a knack for writing, a topic you are passionate about, and some extra free time you can earn a steady income from your blog. You can write about anything under the sun, really – from pets, hobbies, sports and food, to love, dating, relationships, and parenting.

Write an Ebook

In May 2011, Amazon announced that their ebook sales surpassed their printed book sales for the first time. It doesn’t have to be a Tolkien-length novel. Just like blogging, if you have a thing or two to share about the topics mentioned above, you can put it together in an ebook. The best thing is it can generate income long after you have written the book.

Start an online store

A lot of people now shop online. If you have a thing for crafts or baking, or just straightforward retailing, it’s worth a try.

Tutoring and babysitting

If you’re fond of kids and have above average patience, you can try offering your services around the neighborhood.
