Do you enjoy writing? Something that has taken the internet like a hurricane is called blogging. Blogging is simply people writing on various subjects or simply writing about something they love.

Web Hosting Reseller
There are millions of people using the internet like you are right now and there are still millions more who will be getting on. Many of these internet users are registering domain names for websites. Many are using their domain names example, www.mycompany.com, for their internet business, blogs or whatever else they do. When they register a domain name they have to pay a monthly fee for that company or any company to host that domain name and website for them.
How about you being able to offer this service to a great potential number of people who would purchase through you? Now you can. The company www.hostgator.com provides this service and now they have what they call a reseller program where you purchase a reseller package from them for about $25 and offer this same service to people. The reseller service www.hostgator.com will run you about $25 per month depending on what package you sign up for.
Think about you being able to sell domains and provide internet hosting while being paid for it each month? Now, this can be a bit technical and may not be ideal for they who are absolutely new to the internet. I do recommend you go to their website at www.hostgator.com and get fully informed and educated. They also have training videos available to help get you trained.
Joint Ventures can be a very interesting way of making some extra money online. Joint Venture online is when one person has a product and one has a website that is having a lot of visitors to that site. The person with the product would contact the website owner by way of phone or email and make a proposal regarding the website owner promoting the product on their website and sharing in the profit of the product. Both persons would walk away with a fair share of income from the sale of the products. If you have a product and can find a website owner who would promote that product on their website or even through their email marketing or newsletter subscribers, this could be proven to be very profitable. The key factors involved here would be having a good product, finding a website that is having a lot of visitors and finally find a website owner who would be willing to join with you in this venture.
13 Offline extra income ideas
One of the easiest ways to make you some extra money at your home without the internet or offline is having a yard sale. Now you can make money from those things that you have just laying around the house that you are no longer using. Anything from your child’s clothes that they have outgrown to that old bicycle laying around the garage. This is something easy to do. Running a yard sale would cost you nothing or the most a few bucks to get some signs for directing traffic to your house. Simply decide how many days of the week you would have your yard sale. Set up your signs, lay out your items and enjoy the experience while making some extra money.
Do you have any family members or friends with kids who may need someone to sit-in with their kids on evenings or on weekends because of their hectic schedules? This could be another quick and expense free way of making some extra income. You could make a list of those you know that falls in this category and make some calls. I personally have made some extra money by picking up a cousin of mine two boys for him from school.
How many family members, friends, or neighbors do you know that are simply to busy to do their own grocery shopping? Here is another idea that could be explored in making some extra cash. You may find some folks too busy to do their weekend grocery shopping and may be willing to compensate someone to do it for them. They could make a grocery list and have you pick up the items. The only tricky part may be the paying for the grocery. One could try maybe one of two things. Firstly, you could pay for the items if you have enough funds to cover the bill and then get reimburse by showing the receipts. Secondly, they could give you the cash to pay and have you return their change and receipts.
Dry Cleaning Errands
There are so many folks who take their clothes to the cleaners each weekend. With the hectic schedules of many, they can hardly fit this in their busy schedule. Here is another opportunity to make some extra money. How about you running the errand for them and are compensated? If you are able to work this around your schedule it could be something one could look into doing.
Fleet Markets/Swop Shops
A lot of money can be made at the Flee Market or Swop Shop whichever term you choose to use. There are thousands of shoppers at these venues each week purchasing various kinds of items and products. There are many sellers at the Flee Markets that go only on the weekends to make some extra money. Now depending on where you live the cost to rent a space for selling your products may vary. You could sell stuff you have just laying around your home at these events or purchase discounted products or wholesale products and resell them at a profit. Now you would not want to mark up your prices too high as shoppers are coming to look for the best deals and prices that they can find and they do have a lot of sellers to choose from.
This is also a fairly nice getting out on the weekend while making some money at the same time.
Listen, if you are good at any academic course or subject, how about doing some tutoring for a small fee. There are many students who are struggling in certain courses, especially high school or college students. Tutoring has a duel benefit effect. Firstly, you would be helping these students who are having a hard time with certain courses. Secondly, you would be making yourself some extra money. A brother of mine did this and had done very well.
Distribute Flyers for Companies
There are many companies and local stores in your area that would love to get the word out about their businesses. This idea is finding out from a few of them if they would pay you a fee to and out their printed flyers or business cards for them. This could be done in our spare time or on the weekends. This is a win-win situation. Firstly, you would be making some extra income and secondly, the companies or local stores would be getting their names out there without paying some elaborate advertising fees.
Car Magnet Advertising for Companies
Here is another idea that is similar to the previous only that is bit easier. There are many companies today who utilize this form of advertising. If you look around you will see many vehicles with either a painted ad or magnet flyers attached to them.
You could approach a local store in your area and ask them if they would be willing to pay you a fee for you to carry a pair of magnet flyers on your vehicle advertising their company or store. Of course, to do this you would first need to have some form of transportation. The company could print the magnet flyers and have you affixed them to your vehicle. Now you could agree with the company if they would pay you weekly or monthly. As you drive around wherever you go their ad would been seen.
Consignment Store Venture
This can be an interesting idea if you are willing to explore it. There are many consignment stores around. These stores are basically stores that will allow you to place your item or product in their stores for sale and upon sale of the product they will charge you a fee or percentage of the item sold. The fee or percentage would be decided on before the sale of the product.
If this is an idea one is willing to explore there are a few things to consider first. Firstly, you would have to locate a consignment store in your local area. You could search online or use the yellow pages to assisting you in your search. You would need to find out if they take any product or do they specialize in only a selected product line. Then you would need to agree upon the fee or percentage that the store would be receiving upon sale of the product. Most likely this agreement would be something you and the store owner would sign and agree on. This venture could be a great avenue in getting some extra cash coming to your family.
Dog Walk for Busy Dog Owners
A dog is such a common pet today. More and more people are getting themselves a dog pet. There are many busy people who love to have dogs but find themselves too busy to go walking with their dogs. This could be another extra income opportunity as long as you are okay with dogs, not allergic to them and so on.
A person interested in this could approach some dog owners who you know are too busy to take their dog walking and offer to do it for them for a small fee. You could even find busy pet owners by posting a free classified ad on sites such as www.craigslist.org.
Pet Check-ups for Busy Pet Owners
Another similar idea is taking pets for check-ups at the vet for those busy pet owners. Many people love to love to have pets but because of their work schedule do not have the time to have them get even a check-up at the vet. Here is another possibly opportunity for anyone interested to perform this task for a small fee. The pets are being cared for, you are making some extra income and the pet owners are happy. Again a way to find these pet owners could be by posting free classified ads on websites such as www.craigslist.org or other free classified sites out there. Always remember when posting ads that you checkout and verify that they who respond are legitimate.
Garden & Pet Care for Out-of-Towners
Another similar but a little different is taking care of flower gardens or pets for folks who are always going out of town. These could be your neighbors, families or friends. There are many people whose job has them traveling extensively and as a result they have little or no time to take care of their flower gardens or pets. Now again, you have to know what pets you would be okay with taking care of. This could be another source of extra income if it is something that works for you. There are people we call snowbirds who travel as the seasons change. These could be a group of potential prospects if you know any such people.
Rental of Extra Room
For those with an extra room and are comfortable with renting it to someone whether family, friends or coworker this could be an additional source of income. It doesn’t have to be a permanent thing but a temporary situation. Of course with an undertaking like this one would have to certainly make known what is accepted and outline your terms to the renter.
Another area of consideration could be renting a room temporarily to out-of-towners coming to attend a sports event or some kind of convention. In oppose to them having to pay for expensive hotel fee they could pay you a lesser amount of that cost hereby you making some extra money with your extra room. Of course, to take on such an undertaking one has to be very careful about who you are allowing in your home. You would be undertaking this at your own risk if you choose to do it. If you know any family members or friends coming from out of town or out of state to attend an event and had planned on renting an hotel room, then you could make the offer to them and get a portion of that would have been hotel fee instead.
