The next top 6 way to make money at home for extra cash is none other than YouTube.

I am sharing my experience with each platform in this list. I have some varying degrees of success with each one. Which is why I am pleased to announce that my channel EatsfromthaEarth has peaked at 15 subscribers. I have made absolutely nothing from YouTube.

But I think that it has the most growth potential. The top earner’s are like stupid top ten billboard pop singer white girl rich.

My favorite you-tuber is David Dobrik. He has a Comedy Vlog on YouTube that is blended with planned skits and daily vlogs. His estimated net-worth is $2 million. This is the type of success that is possible on YouTube with dedication and effort.

I was making a vegetarian comedy cooking parody show… then I stopped lmao. Of course who hasn’t tried YouTube. My Mom is on Youtube… crazy, things didn’t work out for her either. (jk)

So with a bit more effort you can achieve more success than I have.

4. Craigslist / Swap and Sale Facebook Groups

Craigslist be like jeep project for sale, just needs a few things to be finished meme

It is fairly obvious how to make money on Craigslist or on Facebook Groups. I prefer Facebook groups because you get a very good idea of who you are meeting. Craigslist meet ups can can be a bit more precarious.

I sold some old used tires that I didn’t need anymore for $200. Items that you have around that can’t be shipped and have to be picked up locally are perfect for this. I also enjoy buying furniture and restoring it. With a little elbow grease you can turn a 20 dollar table into a 100 dollar table.

There are many different skills needed for blogging success. .

6. Kick-starter

donated to a stranger's kickstarter finally saw their short film and it sucks meme

I once took a stab at trying to use kick-starter. This is my last top 6 ways to make money online for Extra Cash.

For about a year I have been sporadically updating my website called It is a fake news parody with satirical articles mostly about politics.

My kick-starter was to create a real Newspaper. The idea was to take peoples submissions for funny news article ideas and make them come alive in print. Then that person would receive a print version of the news paper to trick their friends. The kick-starter goal was for $1000. And I think I only got 2 or 3 pledges. lmao!

This experience helped  me learn more about crowdfunding. It is actually really hard to build support for your idea on kick-starter without having an actionable marketing plan for promotion

I made a promotional video that detailed the plan and I put it on Facebook, twitter, and YouTube. Then I paid for advertising all three platforms. I spent the most money on Facebook. I got hundreds of likes but hardly anyone followed through to actually pledge.

My idea was not inspirational enough and I don’t think my video was dramatic enough. You have to connect with people emotionally. People like to give money to kick-starters that make a difference in the world or to really cool inventions.
