3. Fulfillment By Amazon
If you sell a product or are creating one Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) may be a good option for you.
FBA is where businesses or people with products to sell can send them to an Amazon fulfillment center and Amazon will handle receiving, packing, shipping, customer service, and returns.
This option can be a side hustle or a full-time commitment. In order to make money on this platform:
- Create an account

4. Online surveys
You can also get paid to take surveys. Survey Junkie is one website that will pay you for your opinion.
You’ll need to build a profile on their website so that they can match you to surveys. You can take surveys or participate in focus groups.
If you’ve started a survey and don’t like it you aren’t obligated to complete it. However, you’ll only get the money listed if you complete the survey.
Tis site uses a points system. The points can be redeemed for cash via PayPal or e-Giftcards.

If you love to travel and write you could consider starting a blog. The most profitable bloggers make between $5,000 and $10,000 a month.
Blogging offers lots of freedom and control as you can write where and when you want. Most sites are free unless you want a specific domain name.
By far the most beneficial way of earning money by blogging is affiliate and referral marketing.
To not be confused, the main difference between the two is that the referral programs are more personal since you need to be using the product, service, or app of the brand.
As an example, we can take the referral program offered by Honeygain. You can earn consistent and continuous referral profits as long as you and the person you brought are both using the app.
If you have a substantial amount of readers it would be a good time to apply affiliate and referral marketing monetization strategies to your blog.
9. Start a newsletter
This is similar to blogging. Creating a paid newsletter is a good way to earn extra income.
10. Teach English
Lingoda is a company that teaches English and other languages to students worldwide.
