So it’s the new year and one of your resolutions is to sort yourself out and try and earn a little extra cash to support your Pokemon habit? No biggie, nowadays everybody needs a bit of extra cash, and there’s plenty of ways to make it happen. One method is to get yourself a second job, but what if you don’t want to – or can’t – commit to a fixed schedule and just want to ‘earn as you go’?

We’ve scoured the web to find a few simple, genuine ways to make an honest buck using just your laptop and an internet connection. Although some of these methods require technical expertise, most do not, and I promise to keep it as low-tech as possible so everybody gets a chance!

Disclaimer 1 – the suggestions below are basic ways of making money online. Let me know in the comments if you feel you’re ready to go pro, and I’ll point you to the right resources where you can learn to make a real living online.
Disclaimer 2 – some of the services will work for you, some not. The idea here is to try them with a little patience. If one of the services doesn’t work for you, simply skip it and pass on to the next one on the list. When you find one that works for you dive in and have a go, but still continue testing more services just in case.

IMPORTANT – Make sure you share this list with your friends. Some of them might need an extra hand to close their months, and one of the below services could be just what they’re looking for.
