Money can be tight when the festive season is over so below I have shared with you some of the things you can do, sell, and make to increase your bank balance this New Year!  There are ways to make extra cash from your computer.


1. Selling DVDs, Books, and LPs

You can make money selling your old DVDs, books, and LPs.  You can either flog them altogether on the likes of Music Magpie, Ziffit, Zapper or WeBuyBooks or you can list them on Ebay.  After all, if you no longer use the items there is no point in cluttering up your home.


2. Make things to sell

You can increase your bank balance by selling handmade items.  If you are good at arts and crafts, then get your creative juices going and make items you can sell.  To get some inspiration have a look at Etsy and set up an account with them today to start selling your lovely handmade goods.




3. Offering a Service

You can make money by offering a service.  Are you good at Photoshop? Are you good with figures?  Why not register with People per Hour and start applying for contracts?  You can register here and start making extra money right away with your skills.


4. Old/Vintage Clothes

You can make money from your old clothes especially vintage clothing. All things vintage is so popular now.  Get hunting through your wardrobe, your mum’s wardrobe, and your gran’s wardrobe too and start selling on eBay!


5. Make Money Watching TV

RewardTV has been around for approximately 10 years.  You sign up and answer questions about your viewing habits and other likes and
dislikes in relation to TV programmes.  It’s a very easy to register and start earning.  Basically, you watch TV as you normally do, you
then login to their website and answer questions about what you watched.  Answering questions allows you to accumulate points which
you save up and then get to spend. Why not register today and see how much you can accumulate?


6. Start a Blog

You can make money by starting a blog. I would encourage anyone and everyone to set up a blog.  The potential for making money is fantastic – although it will take a little time to get established. If you want to know more about setting up a blog head over 5 Easy Steps to Set Up a Blog to read how.


7. Complete surveys

Prolific Academic is a survey site but with a difference, it is mainly used by researchers from universities so the surveys you complete are that little bit more interesting – in my opinion anyway!  You are paid in cash so get registering today and find out how much you
can make during your lunch break!  Surveys last from 2 minutes to 20 minutes. You can earn up to £20 per hour with Prolific so a great site to start earning cash.

Another survey site is Pinecone. This is a great site, where you get to help influence tomorrow’s products!  You complete surveys from
the comfort and convenience and get paid for sharing your thoughts.  Membership is free and only takes a few minutes to sign up.  Pinecone is very generous in terms of payment – you can earn up to £3 per survey so worth signing up to now! Why not register
here and start earning now?

8. Mystery Shop

You can make money by carrying out mystery shopping. The best place to start is with StreetSpotr, you can download the app from here and start earning cash for completing mystery shops.


9. Join ClickWorker

As well as completing surveys another way of making some extra cash when you have a few minutes is completing tasks through ClickWorker.  The tasks are varied and depending on what time you have, you can make money on a regular basis.


10. Earn Vouchers

You can also earn vouchers as well with SwagBucks.  Swagbucks is a paid to click website which offers numerous tasks for you to do, some of these are surveys, daily polls and searching online.  Another great opportunity to save up vouchers for birthdays and Christmas or a treat for yourself!


These are just some additional ways you can increase your bank balance this January. Have you other ways that you want to share? Let us know in the comments below.

    You’ve listed some awesome ways to make money online. I especially like your idea of making items to sell. There are tons of people out there looking for unique items. I’m often recommending to my friends to turn their hobbies and talents into a money-making business. The internet opens the door for anyone to be successful online.
