What are some easy ways to create small income streams?

24 replies
I'm just looking for some simple things, like swagbucks where you get paid to do what you would do anyway. Just simple things.

I discovered swagbucks and it got me to thinking, 'What other easy money making scheme am I unaware of?'

Anyone have any suggestions?

    Start putting up small affiliate review sites, see if you can get some recurring income going. I am not sure what Swag bucks is, but they must be paying peanuts..

      It's actually where you get paid to use the search engines. You get paid peanuts, but it's much better than getting paid nothing for something you would do anyway.

      That's using the ol' noggin

      I'll try out that review idea. Do you need a real website or can I use blogger?

        Network Marketing, with a little effort here and there I've managed to get my phone paid for every month and a some extra. Since starting it August I've earned a little more money every month as well. Nothing too crazy but helps.

        You can use free blogger sites, but those can be taken out from under you at anytime.

            I'd reconsider that. It really doesn't cost much to get hosting and use a free WP theme.

            The small review sites concept works if you know SEO. It's not a long term or stable strategy, but it works well. I use it for fast cash flow. Note, just because it's a small site doesn't mean you should skimp on quality. Write awesome, genuine reviews of products you use and love.

    I would market affiliate products. The easiest way to do this is to start offline by handing out brochures, flyers etc. You can even post in newspapers or classifieds. To do this you will need a domain name that is redirected to your affiliate link!

    If you want something where you don't have to spend a year inserting articles into, or dealing with heavy SEO or article syndication, try:

    - BubbleWS. You write 200-word posts (minimum) and get paid 1 cent per view/comment.

    - Next up is SlicethePie. Get paid anywhere from 8 to 20 cents for reviewing music tracks. People usually review each track in under two minutes.

    - Another one is PostLoop, where you get paid for forum posting. You get an average of $5 per 100 posts, last I checked.

    Note that these 3 are not intended to deliver passive income and usually require constant work for peanuts. But they're good if anyone is truly desperate for a few dollars this week.

    I can recommend that you check out Fiverr.

    Just take a look what is offered there and then see what kind of service you can come up with.

    If done correctly this can actually be build into a real business.

    Fiverr is a good one to use. YOu may also wish to check out SEOclerks as you can post a job here and if someone bids on it then you get money in your account once you have completed the job. I am not sure if Reviewstream is still a go or not. I have written for them a few years back but have not been by there for a while.

    Do review videos of products that are launching in the near future and upload your video to youtube. If you know a little bit about affiliate marketing then you can do some minor video SEO and start making sales as soon as the product is released. If you do one video a day you will be making $30-$40 a day in no time.

    SELL SELL SELL.

    More importantly, automated selling.

    The automated selling of products and services.

    There are a thousand and 1 profitable products and services you can sell. And the most important things to learn in either situation, are marketing and copywriting. How to find customers, and how to convert them. If you can do that well enough, it won't even matter so much what products/services you sell. As long as they're not garbage.

    However, I personally prefer to stay away from things like CPA/Adsense/Affiliate offers. I think they are overly saturated, most of it takes too much time/energy to set up for too little pay off.

    Understand that there are lots of competitive niches, but many of these niches have major needs that aren't being met. Time and time again, people come into these niches and compete to provide solutions to needs that have already been met a million times before.

    Thats why the ultimate strategy is to fullfill an unrecoginized demand. If you want to sell a product or service, have that product/service target demands that aren't already being met. Otherwise if you jump into competitive niches, offering the same things everyone else has already done, you will have a long, tiresome, nonprofitable road ahead of you. You will drop out of marketing and say it doesn't work. You will complain month after month year after year. You will become an excuse making, pitty party throwing, passion lacking, noninnovative corporate slave of whatever country you live in.

    To avoid all that, use your brain. Be creative, be innovative. Its the 1 thing that 99% of people don't know how to do. So if you learn how to do that 1 thing, you'll be light years ahead of everyone else. They'll call you lucky, they'll say you knew the right people, they'll make excuses for your success, same way they make excuses for their own failure.

    You'll just smile and know the truth. The reason you succeeded, is because you didn't care about what everyone else was doing. You did your own thing, you did a damn good job, and you don't care what anyone else thinks.

    Good luck - Red

        I actually wrote a book on this exact topic.

        There are tons of "little" ways you can make money online. And new ones popping up all the time. For example gigwalk.com posts mini jobs on mobile apps for people to use their cell phone to take pics of businesses verifying the location, check pricing in stores and more.

        There are sites that will pay you to review music, evaluate the "tone" of a message, buy your gently used name brand kids clothes, buy your used electronics and more.
        As someone mentioned mini gig sites like Fiverr.com can be lucrative - it adds up. Mechanical Turks may pay pennies but if you work it right those pennies add up.

        And of course there are scams to...but if you are careful there are plenty of ways to add different "eggs" to your basket that can add up to income.

      I can't agreed further.

      Why aim for peanuts?
      You will be surprised that
      you work more for small
      bucks.

      Don't see any CEO works
      harder than the workers.

      Yet they are the highest paid
      in the companies.

      Got it??

    I like using Squidoo, they offer your free website pages, easy to use amazon and ebay affiliate links to earn commission. They offer a lot of other benefits as well. I would recommend checking them out. I use other affiliate programs like commission junction and clickbank to promote affiliate products on Squidoo as well.
