No matter who you are, whether you are a cleaner, a student, a pensioner or a businessman there are always ways in which you can make money. Here are 10 ways in which you make some extra cash.

1. Pet boarding services.

If you enjoy spending time with animals and you have a friendly environment for them to stay, then why not become a pet sitter. If you live in an area close to a large city, pet sitters are always high in demand. Simply start by offering your services online or on local job postings. When you have pet sat for several people, assuming you have done a good job, your name should spread and soon you will be earning a successful living by looking after other people’s pets for a period of time.

2. Freerollesports.

 When you’ve not got a lot of money to spare, gambling might seem a tad risky. Fortunately, there are now more gambling sites than ever that offer players the chance to play for free. Betting on the outcomes of esports matches and tournaments is a relatively new phenomenon, esports is essentially competitive video gaming and the industry is booming. Many betting websites offer players free bets for when they sign up. So who knows, with a $5 free bet you could quickly turn that into $50, especially if you brush up on your esports knowledge.

3. Donate plasma. 

For the physically healthy, donating plasma and hair can be a good way to earn extra cash. Plasma is the colourless fluid part of blood in which corpuscles of fat globules are suspended. You can donate plasma up to two times a week, and the process is considered by most to be pain-free.

4. Mystery shopping. 

Market researchers, watchdog organisations and companies often want or need to check the quality of a service. Mystery shopping are usually paid for their services and are used to basically spy on workplaces to ensure they’re up to standard.

5. Pawn shops.

 A pawnbroker will give you a loan in place of your valuable possessions. You can either repay the loan within the agreed timeframe, and have your possession returned, or keep the money and allow the pawnbroker to assume ownership of the item and put it up for sale. Either way, if you are in need of some quick cash, visiting a pawn shop is a great way to do just that.

6. Rent a room or parking spot.

 Has your son just moved out to university? Have you got a spare bedroom which is just filled with all your old items? If so, you could use this spare room to earn yourself some money. If you are not afraid to share yourself with a lodger, then you can rent out your room.

7. Run errands.

 Make some extra cash by offering to run errands for people who are either too busy, elderly or sick to do it themselves. If you have a van, you can help transport items and furniture for people moving house. The internet is a great tool to advertise yourself to people as a handyman. Or, if you are feeling confident, go around knocking on doors of your neighbours to see if they need help with anything. Maybe a neighbour needs his garage painting or car washing. 

8. Start a blog.

 The more popular your blog, the more likely companies will pay you to review their product or service. Putting adverts on your site can also result in payment. Learn to use affiliate marketing here.

9. Sign up for competitions. 

Spare some minutes of your day for entering online competitions. Sometimes the prize isn’t always financial, or a prize gift card can only be used in one particular store, but a free laptop or holiday probably won’t go unwelcomed. You’d be surprised how much money there is to make relatively free of charge by entering competitions.
 
10. TV game shows.

 Television game shows are always looking for members of the public to take part in their chances to win cash. The format is usually to use your knowledge in order to win cash, so if you fancy yourself as an intelligent person – definitely sign up to these gameshows and you can win thousands.
