Quick ways to make extra money- Free up more time for your online business!

Welcome back, I have decided to write this article to maybe give you some ideas on how you can make extra money if you are wanting to devote more time to your own online business or to just have extra money for bills.

Drive for Uber

You got to make money one way or another and I know doing Uber for me has helped me pay my bills so I can spend more time online at night working on my websites and grinding. I have left my full time job a little over a year ago to try to do my own thing and I have been driving for Uber for a year now but shortly after starting Uber I discovered Wealthy Affiliate which helped me start my own online business.

You will be able to pick your own hours and make as much money as you want, that does depend on you. I have survived for a year doing Uber and have managed paying my bills and my websites has started making money as well, I just got to continue to grow my brand and keep adapting.

I will give you a referral code here soon that can get you started with some good bonuses which would help out. There are other things you can do as well, there are other apps that can make you money. If you don’t feel like taking passengers then you can always deliver food with Doordash or Postmates, I use both of them too.

My Uber invite code is – HBFW9HV1UE

My Postmates code- FL-s7hjk

These ways are some of the best ways to make enough money throughout the week in order to pay bills while you work on your websites on the side. Just set a goal and figure out where the hotspots are at in your zone and go for it!

Try Fiverr

Fiverr can be a decent way to make extra cash if you have some skills that you can have other people pay for. Fiverr.com is a freelance website and you can post any gigs on there for whatever prices you want to set. I only have 3 gigs on there as of right now, I do plan on adding new gigs soon.

You can even play video games for people on there, I actually got paid 200 dollars to level someone up on a video game before which was awesome. You can have up to like 3 packages for each gig so you can set each one at a different price and you can also offer more in each package as well.

You can almost get anything on Fiverr, you can buy shout outs on social media, content writing, website building, and even spell casting. It is free to make an account and I will have a link below where you can sign up and get to posting gigs!

Try writing Ebooks

In my spare time when I am not working on my website I will write some ebooks and put them up for sale on my website. Something like this you will need to work at it so you can grow and get more sales on your ebooks. You can do all of this stuff while you work on blogging with your websites.

I use a specific site to write my ebooks on and the format is already ready to go when you upload it on Amazon so you can start selling. Don’t be too worried about writing and putting together an Ebook, your first one won’t be the best but you will continue to get better at it.

You will be able to set your own prices and Amazon does get a cut and you will get your royalties. I will link the website I used to write Ebooks down below, you will also be able to get your ebooks proofread or what ever else you need done to your ebooks. There are tons of talented people offering to help you put your book together the right way.

Blogging/ your own online business!

Blogging is the best thing you can do to start your own online business, I decided to save this until last because doing Uber and the other things will help you make money while you work on your online business until you grow it and see success. So many people do affiliate marketing online and there are so many successful people making tons of money by doing it as well.

I have been a member with this amazing program online where I got all my training, hosting for up to 50 sites, and so much more. I will give you a long list of what you will get if you join me at Wealthy Affiliate to start building your own online business.

So luckily everything is included within Wealthy Affiliate even a keyword research tool.

Wealthy Affiliate is the best affiliate marketing training platform I have found online. I will link my Wealthy Affiliate review down below and the link to go ahead and join WA to try it for FREE!

  1. Hi there,

    Nice tips! I would like to ask if you can share some tips for students. I mean Uber is nice but I we don’t have a car. Obviously, find a PT job works, but it takes the time you need to spend in studies and it is not always flexible. I was trying to do some freelancing online, but no success people didn’t even respond on the upwork. Any tips for broken students?

    Tip from me is for UK students to do something called Matched Betting I was able to generate a few thousand $ doing that, but its so time consuming.



  2. Some great ideas here to keep your head above water while you are still able to find time to work on your online business. 

    I have a long vacation at the end of each year, and I would mind doing something extra in my free time to earn in the two months I am not working. I was thinking about doing the UBER thing, but I am not sure if because I am a woman if it will be safe, unless I only do it in the day.  Does the wear and tear on your car also get covered by your earnings through UBER?

    1. That only depends on how much you make, you can make any amount of money you want to doing uber, you just have to grind.  There are also plenty of women that drives for Uber, you just gotta be smart about it and your zone.

  3. Thank you for sharing with us this great post on quick ways to make extra money.Many people wait for opportunity to get money online and they need to find a good way to earn money.

    Writing e-books can help people to make money but it is not easy to find the content needed by the readers.

    Blogging is a good way to do online business when we choose a great platform which can help in building website and host it.Wealthy Affiliate is a recommended platform.

  4. I normally like to call it your side hustle. It is imperative that you do side hustles before your site picks up and start paying the bills. It is not easy running an online business and it normally takes some time before it starts paying off. It is a good idea that while running your online business to make sure you don’t rush it. Take your time and have some money coming in from other places so you can be able to give your business as much time as it needs to grow on its own

  5. Thanks for sharing this, fiverr has been my own way of making extra money while I build my online empire at my pace. Joining wealthy affiliate was the best thing that happened to me this year. Truly WA is the last bus stop to success, although I joined late this year but I can record some successes already and i can’t wait to share my success story. 

  6. Hi Justin,In WA I have been four months, had learnt a lot, but I know there is more knowledge missing. I have tried Fiverr but nothing change, maybe I didn’t do the right things, I will try again through your link. Also, I will try to write an eBook, driving isn’t a good option for me 😉 I am a new driver, lol. Thank you for your review 🙂

    1. If you have things to offer then fiverr is a very good option, i have been driving for a long time and i dont mind it.

  7. This is a great example of how, if you put your mind to something you really can make it work.  No one ever said that getting to your dreams was going to be easy but once you are there you will be glad you did everything you could to make it happen.

    I to am a member of Wealthy Affiliate and I work my butt off.  Every second of spare time is dedicated to making my dreams come true. 

    Thank you for this great article and reminding me that if there is a will there is a way.


  8. So many people are always looking to make money online.

    Uber is very popular now and something that I’ve been considering.I hire people on fiverr but don’t know if I have any skills I can offer.

    I do have my own website that I blog on everyday so that works.That brings me to Wealthy Affiliate which is where my website is and where I’m building it.

    It’s the best place to build an online business and make money.By helping others you’re helping yourself too!

    Wealthy Affiliate can be done by anyone including beginners!Would you say this is the best place for people to make money online?

  9. With the economy struggling as it is at the moment, this article could not have come at a better time. Driving for Uber has been the quickest method for me and I have had good results, flexible hours and reasonable rate of return.

    I have found that consistency, patience and realistic expectations have allowed me to remain focused.


  10. Hi Justin,

    Great post about tips to make more money!

    I create a lot of ebooks and give them away for free on amazon.

    I use them as a lead generator for my website and it has been a great experience.

    My last ebook got to #2 in it’s category so I was super happy.

    It doesn’t generally bring a lot of cash initially but once the flow started to trickle, I got more traffic to my website which generated sales eventually.

    It does work, but if you are looking for quick cash some of your other tips could be better!

    Great job!


  11. Interesting read on how to make some extra money. Whilst I knew about three of them, I did not realize that you can make some cash with selling e-books. As you indicated, I will need some advice on how to proceed on this and I will certainly check-out Reedsy. I agree with you that Wealthy Affiliate is one of the world’s best internet business support programs at very reasonable cost and would advice it to anybody who takes a liking to affiliate marketing.

  12. You’ve got the coolest affiliate marketing partner so far. I was a little nervous about offering such a product, but this is tactfully presented and you’ve got to appreciate the medicinal value?

    I was wondering whether CBDPure oil would work for my daughter who has epilepsy? I’d rather she not smoke weed because I believe that smoking damages lungs? Of course, I’m not sure, I’m just guessing?  While I was reading about your rather cool website, my daughter came home and I told her about CBDPure oil, and she informed that she has used this product from time to time.  She says she’d rather take CBDPure oil instead of or with the medicine the doctor gives her. She says that she’s tried these pills and this product really works great for her! In fact, after seeing your site she wants to do affiliate marketing too. Do you think CBDPure oil would work for my work stress? 

  13. I wouldn’t spend my time driving for Uber if I want to make decent income doing part time job. Like you I rather start a small business online with creating a niche blog. At least I have opportunities to earn passive income. One that can help me achieve not only financial freedom but also time and location freedom. I will definitely recommend WA to people who want to start a small online business. 

    1. Yes but it will take a while to earn good money from a niche website, by driving for Uber i can earn money then and there to pay my bills so i can continue working on my websites.

  14. I’m glad to visit your site. These are great ways to make money online. I’ve  heard of fiverr, but I really don’t know what gig to go for, so I never tried it. WA is really an amazing place to work on. With patience and resilience the results are outstanding. Thank you for sharing this.

    1. Yeah and it can be hard to stay motivated especially when everything around you is going wrong, i know i have slacked off too much but i keep going.

  15. Great post and good info. 

    I was planning to do Uber but since I have a family I won’t do that anymore, instead, I do Instagram shutouts and I do it by Fiverr. 

    I earn good money by it, also because I have lots of followers. 

    I honestly didn’t knew about the video games fact, and since I love playing that, I’m going to check that out. 

    Thanks for sharing it with us. 

    1. That is really awesome, i am trying to grow my following but it is pretty hard.  I need to get me some more shout outs as well.

  16. Great ideas for getting extra capital to focus on your online business. I don’t drive for Uber but my sister’s boyfriend makes a living driving for Uber. I have done a few gigs on fiverr though. It is pretty easy to set up. I will try the ebook approach. I like writing. Maybe this is just what I need to motivate me to start my hand in Amazon as a writer.

  17. Thanks for your great tips in making extra money but I observed that most of the ways require an active work like Uber and Fiverr which is something challenging for me. I don’t have a car now so Uber will be out of list for me but I would like to consider those options that can help me generate passive income. If you have any other recommendations, I would like to hear. 

    In the meantime, trying wealthy affiliate would be an ideal start up for me. 

  18. Gee, Justin, what an honest, interesting post. I really enjoyed learning from your experience. $200 for helping someone level up in a game, how cool is that?! 

    I haven’t tried Uber driving, but I’ve got 3 thriving blogs and I’ve made a good few bucks on Fiverr. I just completed my highest paying Fiverr order to date ($100) bringing my total Fiverr earnings up to $514.50. Woohoo!  I couldn’t find a link to your profile on Fiverr to go check out your gigs, I tried the sign up link but it didn’t take me to your profile, it took me to mine. 

    Thanks for the heads up on Reedsy. One of my major goals this year is to get my first ebooks up on Amazon Kindle so your post came at the perfect time and I’ve joined Reedsy via your link. Thanks a mill.

  19. This is a helpful post for people looking for ways to earn extra income especially around holiday times. I really like the part about earning some cash playing video games for someone. Sounds like a fun time.

    Does it take long to do gigs? Can a fiverr provider get higher amounts for their gigs? Is there a maximum a person can earn on a gig if they are very skill in a certain area?

    I’ve heard somewhere that a ghostwriter can help write an ebook. Would you hire a fiverr writer to help with the ebook to save on time? Uber is also a great suggestion for extra income, one of my friends does that and he enjoys it. Thanks for the great tips.

  20. You’ve provided some really great tips on how to earn an income online. I never knew you could get paid for playing video games on Fiverr. I might need to go update my profile. I love video games and am quite skilled at it. I also want to write and ebook but I’m not sure how to go about it. Do you have any tips for writing an ebook there relevant to my niche (dg training)? 

    Overall, well-written, informative post. Thanks for sharing!


    1. Well you can check out reedsy for writing ebooks, its very simple there.  I try to do as much as i can but i still got a long way to go.

  21. A nice selection of money-making tips, Justin.

    I can personally vouch for some of them.

    I’m an on and off Uber driver as well. To me, its big value is flexibility. I can work whenever I want or not work at all if there are other things I’d rather be doing.

    If I start around 7:30am, I will normally have made over $100 by lunchtime. That gives me $700-$800 a week with my afternoons and evenings free.

    And the other big advantage is that it makes a large percentage of all my motor vehicle expenses, including the big ones like depreciation and services, tax deductible. This is a huge benefit not realized by every Uber driver.

    I’m a big user of Fiverr and only recently discovered that they have an affiliate program, so will be exploring that further.

    And I’m also a member of Wealthy Affiliate. It comes with my highest recommendation.

    Justin, thanks again for this great article.

    1. Dang i never really made that much with uber, i always shoot for 500 a week but i am not a morning person so i never go out early.  I used to go out early and i always did good.

  22. These are awesome suggestions for quick ways to make some extra money! I too would love to make some money on the side so I can work more on my blog. I have used Fiverr to have a logo created but had no idea people will actually pay someone to play video games for them on Fiverr! I better not tell my son that. Uber sounds like a great way to earn some extra cash while being able to work around your schedule. Thanks for the tips!

    1. Yeah it is and there are other apps out there that will earn you money in the meantime, you just got to grind then work on your online business on the side as well until its big enough.

  23. Very helpful article, a lot of people turn to work from home schemes and see little to result or even lose money. All of the suggestions you have provided seem like legit ways to make extra money to me. I would also suggest maybe doing some freelance writing also, people will pay you to write content and articles and stuff like that.

  24. Thank you Justin for your interesting article: ¨Quick ways to make extra money-free up more time for your online business¨. I just wanted to add to what you are saying by recommending you to try Amazon MTurk (Amazon Mechanical Turk). It´s a way to earn money and hit it big through HITS. HITs are Human Intelligent Tasks. There are basic questions that need an answer. Some tasks cannot be performed by computers and this is where you come in. Working is also fun because you choose the task that is of interest to you. You can select from thousands of tasks and work whenever is convenient for you

    Amazon Mechanical Turk gives workers access to thousands of HITs available to complete. Workers get paid after the requesters approve their tasks. They may work on tasks like identifying a specific color in a photo or video, researching data details, transcribing audio recordings, and much more varieties of tasks. Businesses can get these tasks done by workers and workers can get paid by businesses or requesters using Mechanical Turk. Once you submit a HIT to a requester for approval and the requester approves it, Mechanical Turk will automatically transfer your earnings to your account balance. There is an initial holding period (until you have been active on Mechanical Turk for 10 days, starting from the day you submit your first HIT) before your earnings are transferred to your account balance if you are a new worker
