Monetize a Blog
Starting a blog doesn’t take much effort. But monetizing it can be quite time-consuming and come with a bit of a learning curve. However, speaking from experience, you can definitely make $100 a day (and MORE!) through your blog. A few ways to monetize a blog include affiliate marketing, ad placements, sponsored posts, and adding an online store to your blog.
Participate in Focus Groups
Seek out focus groups in your area that will pay you for your participation. Focus groups can pay anywhere from $50 to over $200 for a couple of hours (or less) of your time. I have participated in both in-person and online focus groups, and it was always a pretty painless process.
Send Friends Your Referral Link
This is kind of like affiliate marketing, but it’s even easier. Are you using an app like Acorns, Fetch Rewards, Rakuten, or any of the other apps that pay you to refer a friend? If so, help a pal out and simply send them your referral link so that they can enjoy the app as well. It’s a win-win for both parties.
If you have some extra time on your hands while sitting at home, you may want to consider taking surveys to make a few extra dollars.
I will say though, taking surveys can be a very time-consuming process and isn’t one of my personal favorites. You could very well end up spending hours taking surveys only to receive just a couple of dollars. BUT, it can be a great addition to your other money-generating activities.
Popular paid survey sites include Survey Junkie, Inbox Dollars, and Swagbucks.
Become a Mystery Shopper
I know quite a few people personally who participate in mystery shopping opportunities to earn extra money throughout the week. I have signed up for mystery shopping platforms but have not yet taken advantage of any of the opportunities. But this is another option!
You can sign up with companies such as UberEats and/or DoorDash to earn some extra money simply delivering meals throughout the day.

Become a Virtual Assistant
The tasks you complete as a virtual assistant can vary greatly, but it’s really up to you to decide what type of services you would like to offer. You may choose to offer administrative support, customer support, social media management, bookkeeping, or something else. The choice is yours. You can then promote your services on platforms like Fiverr or on social media.

Scan Your Receipts
This is actually one of my fave ways to earn some extra money. Scanning receipts is so easy and many of us accumulate so many over time. Why not use those receipts to bring in a few extra dollars? I currently use Amazon rewards which I believe is invitation only but I also love Fetch Rewards and have gotten many of my family and friends to join as well.
Use Cashback Apps
I highly recommend checking out my Beginner’s Guide to Couponing to learn more about using cashback apps. But taking advantage of cashback opportunities is a great way to bring in extra money. I also recommend using cashback credit cards to earn extra money.

Sell Items You No Longer Use or Need
This is a great opportunity to declutter your home while earning some extra cash. You can sell items you no longer need on the Facebook marketplace, on eBay, on specialty websites, or at a good old-fashioned garage sale.
Monetize a Youtube Channel
There are a variety of ways to earn money through your YouTube channel. If you are part of YouTube’s Partner Program, you can monetize your channel through ads.

This is kind of a unique venture, but buying and selling websites is another way to fill your bank account with some extra cash.
Sell Your Photography
If you can take stunning professional photos worthy of being sold, you may want to consider selling stock images as a side hustle.
While babysitting is a relatively easy side hustle to get up and running, you will want to make sure you have the proper training and safety protocols in place before diving in.
Get Paid to Exercise
Yes, there are literally apps out there that will pay you to exercise. All you need to do is complete certain tasks then you can claim your reward. This is a great way to get in both physical and financial shape.
Last, but certainly not least, another way to bring in an extra $100 a day, is simply by cutting unnecessary expenses. Little expenses like those stops at fast-food restaurants, subscription services you rarely use, etc. all add up over time. The best thing you can do for yourself if you are in need of extra money is to eliminate these unnecessary purchases and pocket that extra money.
