Today I want to share with you some quick ways to make extra side money.
These side jobs will help you earn an extra $50 per day or more. I like them because they are a great addition to your existing job or if you don’t have a job currently, you can also use these ideas to make money while you find employment.
They’re pretty great, and some of them are affiliate links where I may be compensated, and they are all viable ways to make an extra $50 per day.
Here they are:
5 Ways To Make $50 Every Day
1. Fill Out Surveys
Surveys are my favorite way to make money online. They work well because you are paid for the surveys you complete and you will know how much money you are making before filling out each survey (each survey will tell you the payout).
All you need to do is join a few reliable survey websites and begin filling out various surveys for them. Surveys can take 5 mins to 20 mins typically, however, there are longer surveys available as well and they typically pay more. Surveys can pay a few dollars to over ten dollars per completed survey.
Here are a five reliable survey companies to sign up for:
If you are looking to make as much extra money as you can, then feel free to sign up for all five survey websites. The more survey websites you are a part of the more available surveys you will have to complete.
2. Refinance your loans
If you are paying for a mortgage, car loan, or have student loans payments, you may qualify for what’s called a “refinance.”
To “refinance” your loan is to get a new loan that replaces your current loan – and get a lower interest rate or lower monthly payments (possibly both).
Refinancing can save you thousands of dollars in interest payments – but there’s a caveat….
You have to qualify in order to refinance.
Not everyone has the ability to get lower interest rates or loan payments.
In order to find out if you qualify, and to see what the lowest interest rate you can get, you’ll want to fill out an application with a refinance company.
I’ve always found the best places to check for lower rates is to do it online with a company that can match you up with many different lenders who compete for your business (by offering you the lowest interest rate possible).
You can refinance several major loan types, including your mortgage, car loan, and student loans.
Below are websites where you can check to see how low of an interest rate you can get on your new loan, and if you can lower your monthly loan payments as well.
3. Become a Dog Sitter
Do you love animals? If you said yes, then this is a job for you!

5. Work As A Freelancer
Online freelance work is one of the most popular ways every day people are making side income. In fact, a lot of people are making full time incomes doing work online for others.
A freelancer is someone who does piece work for someone else or a company.
How it works is basically a company puts out tasks that needs to be completed. These are tasks that anyone can do with a computer so they don’t need an office or in person staff to do these jobs. Keeps costs lower. People online who are looking for work and have the particular skill to perform the job will find these jobs and apply to do them.
So your ability to get jobs will depend on your skill level and how much money you are willing to take for each job. Jobs will pay you a lot of money or a little depending on the task and how skilled you are.
You could for example write article or proof read material, or edit documents or perform data entry. A few websites where you can find these types of jobs and all other types of offerings are guru.com and freelancer.com.
6. Make Money With Fiverr
Fiverr is a website where people pay $5 for a random job to be done. I love this website because they have the most random things you can pay for. They also have useful things too.
For example, you can find someone to sing happy birthday in a British accent to your friend. Or you can pay $5 for someone to create a logo for your website. Or you can get someone to write you a poem for $5.
So you, on the other end of this, is the person who will be providing the skill. Basically, if you have any skill at all, you can offer it on Fiverr. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a useful skill as you can see, it just needs to be something someone is willing to pay for, quirky or not. You can check out Fiverr.com to learn more.
7. Become An Uber Driver
Perhaps this might fall into the realm of a “typical job”, but I don’t really think so in my opinion because to me Uber driving is something you can do on the side and you set your own hours for this type of work.
If you haven’t heard of Uber, it’s basically a taxi service. You have your phone and your car and you sign up for Uber. Once approved, you can begin driving people around for money. I’ve taken Uber several times and I always enjoy talking to my driver. They are just every day people like you and me looking to make more money.
They are students or immigrants or recently laid off and need more money type of people. And they make a lot of money too. You can make several hundred dollars per day just Ubering. Especially when you decide to work when it’s busy, like later in the night when people are leaving the bars or when people are going to the bars for example (Uber hikes up rates when it’s busy so you make more money).
