Multiple income streams are key to security and its now even easier than ever, we live in a gig society, a digital era so it’s really easy to find a money-making opportunity that works for you.
Find an area that suits your lifestyle, interests and passions and take action and go for it, here are some ideas I hope they give you some food for thought and hopefully inspire you to make some cash.
1. Sell on Amazon
Average months sales
My first year trading on Amazon I turned over £60k, check out this post for more information on how I did it. oh and this one
So obviously my number one choice at the moment, is selling on Amazon, specifically using FBA fulfilled by Amazon, it means Amazon do most of the work selling and sending the products to the customer, all I have to do is source the right stock.
I really like it as you can tap into a huge marketplace, traffic and business model selling either arbitrage, wholesale or private labelling products. It’s literally like putting a product up for sale in every Tesco and Sainsbury’s in the country, without having to pitch to them. Amazon needs third-party sellers like you and me to grow and diversify.

2. Write a book.
They say theirs a book in all of us? It’s so easy to self publish your own title, no publishers needed check out blurb.com
Perhaps write an e-book on a niche subject, or a new emerging trend that people are searching for on google trends?
E-books sell best on Amazon’s Kindle and Apple’s Itunes Connect the two combined make up the largest digital book market, they are the perfect place to put up your work. Start off with low prices, and once you’ve built a reputation for yourself in the form of reviews and an audience you can start increasing your prices.
Want to know how to write your own e-book in less than 24 hours! Yes its possible and you certainly don’t have to be the best skilled writer ever, give it a go! More about it here
I haven’t gone down this path as yet! but watch this space!
Is their something that you know about that people would be interested in reading? A passion, a niche?
Building and running a blog is a really rewarding way to make money online. I Use WordPress to build my site with clear navigation and a responsive theme
You need to buy a domain name, it should be something short and memorable,I bought mine on godaddy.com I think it was about £12.
You’ll also need a site to host it on, such as Blue host
add a cool theme to your blog, you can get a themes from this store here
I think its important to note it would take a long time to build an income from it, so defiantly look at it like a hobby to begin with, like a diary and if you’re able to build an audience then maybe you could could indeed monetise it at some point, by selling courses, books, advertising, sponsored blogs etc
Once you get the hang of being a blogger, the progress will be much faster and the income much larger.
I absolutely love Instagram, its such an interesting and creative social media platform, so many people are being paid to advertise products on it (I guess this is also classed as affiliate marketing.) You probably need in excess of 5000 followers to be able to monetize your content, find a niche or something that you’re interested in and find your tribe and vibe ‘oh that rhymes.’ and grow an engaged audience.
I’m making around £200 a month at the moment from Instagram, can’t exactly retire yet, but my audience is building by over 500 a month, I’ll blog soon about my growth strategy creating content and how I’m monetizing it. (so don’t forget to subscribe!)
A way of growing your audience is by doing paid shoutouts, infant you can buy them from people on Fiverr ( which is a good link to my fifth way of making money online!)
Here are some influencer agencies you can sign up to and apply to be involved with campaigns,

5. Offer online professional services (gigs) on fiverr
Can you make someones CV, logo, or offer a virtual assistant service? In fact so many people globally are offering different digital skills and services, that you too can sell and earn a passive income from.
Corey Ferreira has written an e-book to show you a blueprint and plan for using Fiverr and how to make as much as $4000 a month, working only 8 hours a week! AND he’s only been on Fiverr for just over a year, through different experimentations, trial and error ,he has put together this really excellent and great value book. offering advice and knowledge that you could also apply if you identify a product/gig that you too can offer.
Here’s my favourite gig EVER! sSomeone is making $5 every time someone like me orders this photo!!
