This month in my Woman's Day Magazine I read a great article about how to make a little spending money! Rachel Singer started a blog (mashupmom.com) years ago and has since written her first book Mashup Mom's Guide to Saving and Making Money Online.
Here are some of her favortie ways to get a little extra spending money!
1. Launch a blog :-)
Blogger.com or wordpress.com, then go to Google AdSense (google.com/adsense) or the affiliate program at Amazon.com (affiliate-program.amazon.com) to feature advertising on your site. With AdSense, you make a little bit every time someone views your ads and with Amazon you make a bit if someone views an ad and then makes a purchase at Amazon. You will only make small amounts at first, but eventually you will make some good afternoon spending money. Rachel reports she makes a couple hundred dollars/month.
2. Give your Opinion
MySurvey.com, Surveyhead.com or ValuedOpinions.com you can sign up to take surveys online about products and services and get paid for it! Typically around 2-5 bucks per completed survey.
3. Search the Internet (my favorite)
We all love to search the web and most of us probably use Google as our search engine. Well, this may change your browser! If you use Swag Bucks as your search engine (swagbucks.com) you can earn Swag Buck Points-called "SBs" redeemable for merchandise like Target gift cards and beauty products. To maximize the amount of SBs you earn, install the Swag Bucks toolbar on your computer! It can take a while to accumulate SBs, a $300 Apple gift card costs 37,000 SB. You can also get a deposit into your paypal account if you do not want the prizes!
Happy Making Money!! $$$
