How to Fix Render-Blocking JavaScript and CSS in WordPress

Do you want to eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in WordPress? If you test your website on Google PageSpeed insights, then you will likely see a suggestion to eliminate render-blocking scrips and CSS. In this article, we will show you how to easily fix render blocking JavaScript and CSS in WordPress to improve your Google PageSpeed score.

How to fix render blocking JavaScript and CSS in WordPress

What is Render-Blocking JavaScript and CSS?

Every WordPress site has a theme and plugins that add JavaScript and CSS files to the front-end of your website. These scripts can increase your site’s page load time, and they can also block rendering of the page.

A user’s browser will have to load those scripts and CSS before loading rest of the HTML on the page. This means that users on a slower connection will have to wait a few milliseconds more to see the page.

These scripts and stylesheets are referred to as render-blocking JavaScript and CSS.

Website owners who are trying to achieve the Google PageSpeed score of 100 will need to fix this issue to attain that perfect score.

What is Google PageSpeed Score?

Google PageSpeed Insights is an online tool created by Google to help website owners optimize and test their websites. This tool tests your website against Google’s guidelines for speed and offers suggestions to improve your site’s page load time.

It shows you a score based on the number of rules that your site passes. Most websites get somewhere between 50-70. However, some website owners feel compelled to achieve 100 (the highest a page can score).

Do You Really Need the Perfect “100” Google PageSpeed Score?

The purpose of Google PageSpeed insights is to provide you guidelines to improve speed and performance of your website. You are not required to follow these rules strictly.

Remember that speed is only one of the many SEO metrics that help Google determine how to rank your website. The reason speed is so important is because it improves user experience on your site.

A better user experience requires a lot more than just speed. You also need to offer useful information, better user interface, and engaging content with text, images, and videos.

Your goal should be to create a fast website that offers great user experience.

We recently redesigned WPBeginner, and we kept our focus on speed as well as improving user experience.

We recommend that you use Google Pagespeed rules as suggestions, and if you can implement them easily without ruining user experience, then that’s great. Otherwise, you should strive to do as much as you can and then don’t worry about the rest.

Having said that, let’s take a look at what you can do to fix render blocking JavaScript and CSS in WordPress.

We will cover two methods that will fix the render blocking JavaScript and CSS in WordPress. You can choose the one that works best for your website.

1. Fix Render Blocking Scripts and CSS with Autoptimize

This method is simpler and recommended for most users.

First thing you need to do is install and activate the Autoptimize plugin. For more details, see our step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

Upon activation, you need to visit the Settings » Autoptimize page to configure the plugin settings.

Autoptimize Settings

You can start by checking the box next to JavaScript Options and CSS Options and then click on the save changes button.

You can now test your website using PageSpeed tool. If there are still render blocking scripts, then you need to come back to the plugin’s settings page and click on ‘Show Advanced Settings’ button at the top.

Advanced JavaScript Options

Here you can allow plugin to include inline JS and remove scripts that are excluded by default like seal.js or jquery.js.

Next, scroll down to CSS option and allow plugin to aggregate inline CSS.

Click on the ‘Save changes and Empty Cache’ button to save your changes and empty plugin cache.

Once you are done, go ahead and check your website again with the PageSpeed tool.

Make sure that you thoroughly test your website to see that nothing is broken by optimizing your JavaScripts or CSS.

How does it work?

Autoptimize aggregates all enqueued JavaScript and CSS. After that, it creates minified CSS and JavaScripts files and serves cached copies to your website as async or deferred.

This allows you to fix the render blocking scripts and styles issue. However, please keep in mind that it can also affect the performance or appearance of your website.

2. Fix Render Blocking JavaScript using W3 Total Cache

This method requires a little more work and is recommended for users already using W3 Total Cache plugin on their website.

First you will need to install and activate the W3 Total Cache plugin. If you need help, then see our guide on how to install and setup W3 Total Cache for Beginners.

Next, you need to visit Performance » General Settings page and scroll down to Minify section.

W3 Total Cache enable minify

First you need to check ‘Enable’ next to Minify option and then select ‘Manual’ for minify mode option.

Click on the save all settings button to store your settings.

Next, you need to add the scripts and CSS that you want to minify.

You can get the URLs of all the scripts and stylesheets that are render blocking from Google PageSpeed Insights tool.

Under the suggestions where it says: ‘Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content’, click on ‘Show how to fix’. It will show you the list of scripts and stylesheets.

Get JavaScript and Stylesheet URLs from Google PageSpeed tool

Take your mouse over to a script and it will show you the full URL. You can select this URL and then use your keyboard’s CTRL+C (Command+C on Mac) keys to copy the URL.

Now head over to your WordPress admin area and go to Performance » Minify page.

First you need to add JavaScript files that you want to be minified. Scroll down to JS section and then under the ‘Operations in areas’ set the embed type to ‘Non-blocking async’ for the <head> section.

Add scripts to minify

Next, you need to click on the ‘Add script’ button and then start adding script URLs that you copied from Google PageSpeed tool.

Once you are done, scroll down to CSS section and then click on the ‘Add a stylesheet’ button. Now start adding stylesheet URLs you copied from Google PageSpeed tool.

Add stylesheets to minify

Now click on the ‘Save settings and purge cache’ button to store your settings.

Visit the Google PageSpeed tool and test your website again.

Make sure that you also test your website thoroughly to see that everything is working fine.


Depending on how the plugins and your WordPress themes uses JavaScript and CSS, it could be quite challenging to completely fix all render blocking JavaScript and CSS issues.

While the above tools can help, your plugins may need certain scripts at a different priority level to work properly. In that case, the above solutions can break your plugins or they could behave unexpectedly.

Google may still show you certain issues like optimizing CSS delivery for above the fold content. Autoptimize allows you to fix that by manually adding inline CSS required to display the above fold area of your theme.

However, it could be quite difficult to find out what CSS code you will need to display above the fold content.

That’s all, we hope this article helped you learn how to fix render blocking JavaScript and CSS in WordPress.


Designing Headers on

They say you can not judge a book by its cover, and yet every day people do. They pick up a book, look at the cover, and then are moved to either put it down, turn it over, or open it up just because of how the cover looks. Websites are also judged by their covers and the first impression often comes from the header.

The header of your site is typically the first thing people see. From this masthead or header art across the top of your page, people make sweeping judgements about what they are about to see and read. The same people who say you can not judge a book by its cover, also say that you only have 30 seconds to make a good impression. In the world of the Internet where the next web page is a click away, you have much less than that.

We are going to take you inside the architecture of a WordPress header and offer tips on how to customize it to become your own book cover, enticing people into your site with a good first impression. Then we will offer some tips from some experts on what makes a good website header.

The WordPress Header

By default, the WordPress header is a simple piece of code. You do not have to get into the code to change the header that comes with whatever WordPress Theme you choose. You set the blog or website title and description in the Administration > Settings > General panel, and WordPress does the rest.

In its simplest form, the WordPress Classic Theme features the header code like this in the wp-content/themes/classic/header.php template file:

<h1 id="header">
<a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a>

The header is set in an h1 HTML tag and features one template tag used with two different options or parameters. You can learn more about these parameters in the documentation for bloginfo(). Basically, the first one displays the URL of the website in a link, and the second one displays the name of the blog or website as set in the Administration > Settings > General panel. When the user moves the mouse over the header title, the header can be clicked to return back to the main or front page of the site as set in the Administration > Settings > General panel.

The WordPress Default Theme features an image in the background and presents the header like this in wp-content/themes/default/header.php:

Award Winning Themes The Theme Headers showcased in this article are some of the award winners of the 2005 WordPress Themes Contest by Alex King.

The header of the Kubrick Theme

Again, the template tag featuring the name of the blog or website is in a link, but this shows another usage similar to the URL request above. It gets the same information, just in a different way. It also adds the description of the site from the Administration > Settings > General panel.

Basically, these two header examples do the same thing in different ways. They provide information in the header, with the potential for an image, and make the header title clickable to help navigation on the site. It is just a matter of how much information you want in your header, and how that information is displayed.

Using the first example from the Classic Theme, an image can still be used in the background, set within the style sheet in the h1 selector, but the second one gives more control to the use of an image in the header by giving it its own division. How these look are totally controlled by the style sheet.

Styling the Header

As listed in the two above examples, the styles for the header are contained within the h1, header, headerimg, and descriptionCSS selectors. These are all found within the style.css, though may be found in the styles in the header.php of the Theme you are using. You will have to check both places.

In the Classic Theme, the CSS for the header are found in one selector, the #header.

#header {
	background: #90a090;
	border-bottom: double 3px #aba;
	border-left: solid 1px #9a9;
	border-right: solid 1px #565;
	border-top: solid 1px #9a9;
	font: italic normal 230% 'Times New Roman', Times, serif;
	letter-spacing: 0.2em;
	margin: 0;
	padding: 15px 10px 15px 60px;

The background color is set to a green shade and there is a border all the way around the header which changes colors creating a recessed, shadow effect. The Times font is set with a size of 230% with a wider than normal letter spacing. The padding on the left side indents the text in from the left.

All of these can be easily changed, giving the border a thicker width and making it all the same color, changing the background color, the font size and style, the letter spacing, and more by modifying the information in each style attribute.

The same is true of the Default WordPress Theme header, except there are more styles to think about and they are found within the header.php‘s “head” tag and the style.css, though once you have your styles set, you can move the information into your style sheet.

The styles that control the header’s look is found within the h1, header, headerimg, and description CSS selectors. Just like the Classic Theme, find these references and make your modifications there to change the look.

Changing the header image of the Default WordPress Theme has been simplified with the introduction of a utility called Kubrickr. It simply asks you to supply a new image file name for the header and then switches it for you, so you do not have to dig into the code. If all you want to change is the header image, this is an extremely useful and easy tool.

If you do want to get your hands into the code, dig into your header styles and make the changes. Below is a simple tutorial on changing just the header image manually.

Connections Theme Header

Changing the Header Image

There are many different header images and header art available for you to use to change the image in the header. The styles for the header image for the Default or Kubrick WordPress Theme, and any Theme based upon that Theme, are more complicated to change than those for the Classic Theme. The styles are found within the styles in the header.php “head” section, as well as in the styles.css. To change only the header image reference, open the header.php template file and look for the styles like this:

#header {
  background: url("<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/wc_header.jpg") 
  no-repeat bottom center; }
#headerimg  {
  margin: 7px 9px 0; 
  height: 192px; 
  width: 740px; }
NOTE: The use of the bloginfo tag only works when the style is used within the head of the template file. WordPress template tags will not work in the style sheet (style.css). To move this style to the style sheet, change the template tag to the actual address (URL) of the header image graphic.

To change the image file, replace the “kubrickheader.jpg” with the name of the new graphic image you have uploaded to your site to replace it. If it is in a different directory, change that by replacing the bloginfo() tag with the specific address of the graphic’s location.

If you are using an image that is the same size, then simply replace the image. If it is a different size, fill in the height and width of the image in the next section called #headerimg. If you do not know, and are using Windows, view the folder in which the image resides on your computer in Thumbnail view mode. Click View > Thumbnail from the Windows Explorer menu. In Thumbnail view mode, find your image and hold the mouse over it. A small balloon tip will pop up listing the dimensions. Use that information in the styles. Otherwise, just right click on the image file and choose Properties and it should give you the file size and dimensions.

Save the template file and upload it and the image to your website and take a look. Some changes may need to be made to fine-tune the placement and look.

With the header image in place, it is time to tackle the rest of the header. Open your style.css style sheet file and look for the following:

  • h1
  • header
  • headerimg
  • description

Your Theme may or may not have all of these, but the Default Theme has all of them in different places within the style sheet. All or some of these may need to have the attributes changed to change the look of your header.

If you change the size of the header image or header art, be sure and change the other structural CSS selectors like content and sidebar to accommodate the change in the header size.

Red Train Theme Header

Header Image Specifications

A header image that fits within the Default WordPress Theme is about 192 x 740 pixels. If you are replacing the header within any WordPress Theme, check the size of the header image and then find a replacement that matches that size. If you choose a header image that is smaller or wider or taller than the replacement, you may have to modify the other structural elements of the web page to allow for the change in size of the header.

If you are modifying the entire site’s Theme, the width of the overall page or content area needs to be taken into consideration for the header image’s size. The two most common screen sizes are 1024×768 and 800×600 pixels. Yet, wide screen monitors are gaining ground and web designers now need to prepare for screen widths of 1280×1024 and 1600×1200.

If you set your website to “float,” positioned in the middle of the browser window with space on either side, then you can set your header width to whatever you want. If you are designing a Theme with a flexible or “elastic” screen width, then the width of your header becomes important.

If you are using a header image that can be repeated, and you are using elastic widths, you can set the styles within the header to repeat to fill the space:

#header { 
background: url("/images/kubrickheader.jpg") 
repeat-x top left; }

This sets the header image to repeat horizontally beginning from the top left corner and going across. You can adjust these to whatever background position your header design and layout needs.

Header Art

A new term growing in the web design field is header art. These are header images that are usually handmade using combinations of color, shapes, symbols, images, and text. They can take some time and labor to create. While there are some free header art sites, some sites sell their handmade header art. Although a photograph may be unique in its own way and convey the needed visual style, handmade header artwork is easier to match to other web page colors and is usually more aesthetically pleasing because of its distinctive nature.

Choosing pre-made header art has some benefits. The artists have already done the work and all you have to do is choose the design that best matches your website. And the graphic is ready to use, already sized and saved as a small file size.

Digital Westex’s WordPress Header Art features a wide range of header art sized and ready for free download specifically for WordPress.

Header Art Copyrights

The best header art to use, if you do not want to generate your own, is any that bear the Creative Commons License that specifically allows its public use. Read the individual license for the image’s use to make sure that you have permission to use the header art on your site. Usually you must attribute the author, share alike and not use it for commercial purposes. If in doubt, always ask permission from the author before use.

As header art is made and licensed “as is” by the designer/artist, some header art cannot be modified without the artist’s permission. Check the website copyrights and licenses and ask if you are in doubt and wish to modify the artwork.

Designing Your Own Header Art

You can also design your own header art. Any graphic design software program will work. Popular ones include Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Elements, JASC PaintShop Pro, The Gimp and Macromedia Fireworks. The graphic design software should have the ability to resize and control the resolution and type of the image when saved. The size of your header art should be the size of the header container you’re going to put it in.

You can use your own photographs, artwork, fonts, and any combination of images to create your header art. When done, save it “for the web” as a jpg, gif, or .png file. For an explanation on which to use read Sitepoint’s GIF-JPG-PNG What’s the Difference article. These file types will compress the image’s resolution, reducing the file’s size. In general, avoid file sizes larger than 50K as larger sizes tend to slow a site access times.

Fast Track Theme Header

Hiding the Header Text

Many Themes and Theme designers want to feature their header with a picture only, no text. Some will put the text in the graphic image, therefore not requiring the actual use of the text. One option is to remove the template tags that generate the title and description. The other option is to leave it in, but hide it.

To hide the header text while leaving it in the code, do not change anything in your template files. Only change the CSS. Add display:none to the CSS selectors you do not want to appear. For example, to hide the text within the h1 selector:

h1 {display:none; font-size: 230%; color: blue;.......

It is still there, but the browser has been commanded to not show it in any way. The container literally is “not there.”

It might be hidden, but some web page screen readers and search engines will still find the information. If you are serious about making your site be accessible, some newer text readers access the style sheet and do not read the elements marked display:none. There are two popular methods for working around this. One is to use the display:none as outlined above, but also include an aural style sheet that changes that selector to display:block, “turning the visibility” back on. The other method is to position the content literally “off the page” by a negative indent. Here is an example:

h1 {
   font-size: 0;
   text-indent: -1000px; }

This technique moves the entire h1 tag and its contents physically off the web page. The screen reader will still “read” the text because it is there, but it will not display on the page. Extensive testing has proven so far that this technique works across most browsers and with all screen readers.

For more information on either technique and aural style sheets:

Making the Whole Header Clickable

To make the entire header, graphic and all, clickable, you must put the header graphic inside of a link. There are two ways to do this. You can put the graphic directly into the WordPress Theme manually, or you can use the stylesheet to define the link size area to encompass the header art area.

To make the header art clickable by embedding it into the header, in the wp-content/themes/classic/header.php template file of your WordPress Theme, change the following:

to this code snippet:


You can style the h1 heading to overlap or sit below, or not even be visible in the header.

To make the overall area of the header clickable, the header must have a width area set for the h1 anchor HTML tag to make the clickable area cover the header image in the background. The styles are set in the stylesheet.

The HTML and WordPress Template Tags look like this, the same as above:

The CSS would then be styled something like this to enlarge the clickable link area and hide the header text (optional), customized to your own design needs.

#header h1 a {
	width: 400px;
	height: 100px;
	display: block;
	background: url(images/headerimage.gif) no-repeat top left;
#header h1 a span { display: none; }

Another option is to add a script to make the header section clickable, which may not work for all browsers. This is showcased in the Default WordPress Theme (Kubrick) with its clickable header:

  • Open the wp-content/themes/default/header.php template file.
  • Change from

If you want both text areas of the header to be clickable and not the entire header image, use the following to make the header art and the blog title and description clickable.

Head Theme Header

Rotating Header Images

There are several scripts available that will allow you to rotate images within the header, sidebar, or on any template file. We will examine the use of one of these, the Random Image Rotator.

Save the script to a separate folder in which you have the header images you wish to rotate in your header. For this example, call it rotate.php. To use this as a background image that changes or rotates with every load of the web page:

#header { 
background: url("/images/headerimgs/rotate.php") 
no-repeat bottom center; }

To actually put this in your header, or elsewhere on your site, add an image link like this within the header division:

<img src="/images/headerimgs/rotate.php" alt="A Random Header Image" />

Image rotating scripts include:

RDC Theme Header

Adding Navigation to Your Header

Headers are another area where you can add navigation elements to your website. Typically these are horizontal menus at the top or bottom of your header. To add these, create a new division within the header to style your header navigation elements.

This can be as simple as displaying your categories across the top of the header using one of the List Categories template tags. Let us look at one example using the list_cats() tag.

In this example, the list_cats() template tag is set to sort the list of categories by ID in an unordered list (<ul><li>) without dates or post counts, does not hide empty categories, uses category "description" for the title in the links, does not show the children of the parent categories, and excludes categories 1 and 33. It sits in its own "category" division. Notice that a link to the "home" page or front page has been included manually at the start of the list.

To style this list, the #categorylist in the style.css might be:

#categorylist {font-size:12px; font-style:normal;
        text-transform:uppercase; }
#categorylist ul {list-style-type: none; list-style-image:none; 
        margin:0; padding-bottom: 20px; }
#categorylist li { display: inline; padding: 0px 5px;}
#categorylist a:link, #category a:visited {color:blue}
#categorylist a:hover {color:red}

It might look like this:


You can also add your Pages, archives, and other links within your header navigation. For more information on navigation menus:

Header Tips

Here are some tips and information to help you choose and customize your WordPress site's header.

Pay attention to text placement and color.
The colors and placement of the text within a header can add or subtract to your presentation. Here are some tips.
  • If you use white text, make sure there is a background color in the header and/or headerimg to showcase the white text again if for some reason the image does not appear on the screen or the user has "show images" turned off. This will allow your white text to still be visible.
  • If the image has a main feature or element, position the text so it does not cover the main subject of the image.
  • If the text is hard to read against a busy area of the graphic, position the text to a less busy area of the header image.
  • Make sure the color of the text is easily seen by your visitors and does not clash with the header art colors. Fluorescent orange text on a lime green background is painful.
  • Be aware that some color differences and patterns in your header art may make the text letters in your overlaid text "disappear." The same applies if you embed the text in your header art or header image.
Have a purpose and point.
A good header reflects the content of the site. The rest of the site has to meet expectations and live up to the header, so the header must reflect the content, purpose and intention of the site.
It should invite visitors to remain.
A good header is like the cover of a book or magazine. It should encourage people to stay and have a look around, read and look more, and find something of value. It is the teaser, the lead that grabs their attention and says "there is something worth exploring here."
It should blend in with the overall look.
Bold and dramatic headers lend themselves to boldly designed sites, whereas soft and pastel colored sites lend themselves to gentler graphic headers. A site dedicated to punk rock and grunge should have a header look punky and grungy. It is up to you, but think consistency.
Headers do not need to have pictures.
Not all headers must have pictures and graphics. Sometimes the words are more important, whether they are against a wash of color or a white background.
Cluttered headers are still cluttered.
Avoid cramming ads, navigation, text, scrolling news feeds, and the kitchen sink into your header. Simple is always better.
Maintain accessibility standards in your header.
We mentioned hiding the header text, and there is more you can do to make sure your header meets accessibility standards. Use the h1 tag so screen readers will recognize it as a header. Use titles and alt descriptions in links and images used in the template file (not in the style sheet as background images).
Headers can be any height, but remember content sells.
The average header is less than 200 pixels high, but headers range in height from very thin to a half page. Remember that the main reason people visit your site is its content, and the more they have to scroll down past your header to get to the content, the less interested they tend to be. Help lead them to the content with your header.
Think "Site Identity."
A header is part of the site's identity or "brand" and people like to know they are on the same site when they click a link to another page within that site. Consider your header or header art as your site's "brand identity".

Header Resources and Information

Header Images

Many WordPress Themes come with header image graphics you can use because they are released for free use under the GPL - General Public License. Or you can use one of the many resources available for free on the Internet, or design your own.

Here are a few resources for header images:

Header Information

Get a Homepage


You can easily turn your blog into a website, with a static homepage that people will land on every time they arrive. Combine a homepage with other static pages and somecustom menus to help visitors navigate, and before you can say “Told you so!” you’ve got a website.

Create your homepage

Start off by creating the page you’d like to use as your homepage. Go to My Sites → Pages → Add. Call it “Home.” Don’t worry about writing it yet — we’re just getting your website set up here. Stick in a bit of placeholder text if you’d like.

Now, create a second, blank page by going once again to My Sites → Pages → Add and call it something like “News,” or “Blog,” or “Posts” — a name that will help you remember that this is the page on which your posts will appear.

To designate your static homepage, go to My Sites → Customize → Static Front Page:


Then, under Front page displays, choose Static page. Next, click on the Front pagedropdown list and select the “Home” page you created as your static homepage:


Next, on the Posts page dropdown, select the “Posts” page you created. (This is where your new blog posts will appear, should you choose to write posts for your site.)


Last, click on Save & Publish for these changes to take effect.

Now, when you go to your web address, you’ll see your new homepage rather than blog posts. Granted, you’re looking at either a blank page or some placeholder text, but still! You’ve built a website. Kudos.

Make your homepage beautiful

Now that you’ve laid the technical foundations for a static homepage, it’s really just a matter of deciding how to present it in a compelling way. Here are a few ideas:

  • Create a gallery, single full-width image, or slideshow to show off some of your best work. We cover this in Get Flashy.
  • Create a welcome message and linked list of your favorite posts.
  • Go wild with images, text, galleries, and media that set the tone for your site.

Making your homepage work for you

If you want your homepage to really serve your interests, make sure that you think about including:

  • A clear, custom menu pointing to your best content, pages, and blog categories. You’ll learn all about that in Get Published.
  • An arresting visual look, from header to custom colors and fonts. You’ll learn how to put those into action in Get Configured.
  • Some useful widgets in the sidebar of your blog, to help people find their way around or get an at-a-glance picture of what your site or blog is all about. You can learn about setting up and getting the best out of widgets in Get Flashy.

That’s it — you should now have a static homepage that transforms your site from simple blog to beautiful website.

dedication before seeing a
return on your time. But if
you really want to make
money online, work from home or turn an idea into a
business, you can do it. You can even earn money with apps if you don’t want to venture all the way to the
computer. I’m going to tell you about all
kinds of legitimate ways to
make money online. Since
we are talking about legitimate jobs, you’ve got to be…well, legitimate. Many of
these options are real jobs that require you to put in
hours if you want to get paid.
They also require real work. Here are some tips for
actually getting the job: Take it seriously. Yes, you’re applying for an online
job. Yes, you can do the work
in your underwear, but that
doesn’t mean it’s not a “real
job”. You must treat it as such
or they aren’t going to treat you as a serious candidate.
You aren’t the only one who
wants to work in their
underwear. In fact, the
competition online is likely
higher than it is in your local area. Be professional. When you submit a résumé, don’t type it
in ALL CAPS and please don’t
avoid the caps lock like the
plague. Know how to use it
without looking incompetent.
Write in complete sentences with proper grammar. Of
course, there will be
exceptions, but even with the
exceptions, you must keep it
professional. You’re building
their view of you. Give some, but not all. Whether you’re providing
writing samples, a
photography portfolio or links
to your work, give them
enough examples to get the
idea, but not so many that they don’t even know where
to start. And while we’re on
the topic, give them some of
your background information,
but don’t tell them your life
story. Double check yourself , before you double wreck yourself. Make sure everything you send to a
company, whether a résumé,
an email or a portfolio, is good
to go. Double check your
grammar and wording, and for
God’s sake use spell check! This is especially important
when it comes to the
company’s name. Don’t spell
their name wrong and be sure
to type it how they type it (e.g.
Problogger, not Pro Blogger). 1. Websites That Pay Let’s go ahead and get this
out of the way. There are all
kinds of websites that will pay
you for various things, such
as shopping, taking surveys
or testing products. No, I’m not getting paid to promote
any of these and no, these
websites won’t make you a
millionaire, but they are great
for earning some extra cash.
I’ll leave out the scams. Here are some legitimate
websites that pay: 1. Swagbucks – Swagbucks is great for earning some extra
cash. You can do a variety of
things to make money, from
taking surveys to using their
search engine. You won’t get
rich, but you will earn a few bucks. If you have the time to
kill, you can spend it earning
some extra cash, instead of
surfing the web. 2. InboxDollars – InboxDollars is similar to Swagbucks,
since you’re going to be taking
surveys, shopping, etc., so if
you want to maximize your
return, sign up with both
websites. They also offer a search engine that pays you
(like Swagbucks) and you get
$5 just for signing up. I won’t
continue to list survey sites
one after another down the
list, but if you want to get paid to take surveys, also check
out GlobalTestMarket, E-Poll Surveys and Survey Club. 3. Project Payday – Project Payday is one of those sites
that has testimonials of
people who have earned
thousands of dollars by
getting paid to get trial offers.
I’m not saying you’ll earn thousands, but it is legit and
you can earn some extra
cash. They assume that by
paying you to do a free trial,
you’ll either like the product
and purchase it, or forget to cancel the trial and get
charged for it. If you can keep
track and cancel before you
get charged (if you don’t want
the product), then this is a
great site for making some money. 4. User Testing – User Testing pays $10 a pop for testing
websites. A test usually takes
about 15-20 minutes. The
purpose is for a website
owner to watch someone,
who is new to their site, try to navigate it. The value that the
site owner gets by watching
an actual user experience is
worth a ton, but $10 isn’t a
bad pay-out. 5. Fiverr – Fiverr is a great place to make a few bucks or spend
a few bucks if you need some
of the services people offer.
Basically, everything is $5.
You either pay $5 or charge
$5. They call them “gigs.” You can offer your services
however you choose. If you
sell art and you’re fine selling
pieces for $5 each, that’s a
gig. If you’re a graphic
designer and you want to offer your services for $10/
hour, simply offer a 30 minute
gig. If they need two hours of
graphic design, they pay you
$20, or $10/hour by buying
four gigs. 6. IZEA – IZEA works in addition to a blog or on its own. You
get paid to blog, tweet, take
photos and take videos. The
pay is mostly based on your
following, so if you want to
make money with your tweets, you’ll need to grow
you Twitter following.
Likewise, if you want to
make money with blogs, you’ll
need substantial blog traffic
(more on blogging below). 2. Freelance Writing Freelance writing is one of the
most popular ways to earn
money online. Many
successful freelancers can
earn an average of 50 cents
to a dollar per word. Some are earning twice that! Of course, it doesn’t start out
like that. You’ve got to build
your portfolio and your
résumé, blah blah blah. If
you’re interested in writing,
I’m sure you know this. If you’re not interested in
writing, I wouldn’t recommend
traveling down this road just
for the money. It takes dedication and time,
though it can be highly
profitable if it’s what you love.
Assuming it is what you love,
let’s talk about making money
with it. Before you decide to start
reaching out to all of these
freelance writing companies,
you need to have a web
presence. You need a blog (in
my humble blogger opinion, of course). Or you could just have an
online portfolio. Even a LinkedIn profile works to get started. When you’re ready to
start, here are 150 resources to help you write better, faster
and more persuasively. If that’s intimidating, just start
with these 50 resources. Now for what you’ve all been
waiting for; once you’re ready
to actually start making
money, here are 10 websites
you can start with: 1. Listverse – Listverse pays $100 for each accepted post.
The article must be a list, it
must be at least 1,500 words
and you must include at least
10 things. Other than that, you
can get pretty creative with it. 2. TopTenz – TopTenz pays $50 for each accepted post.
Again, the article has to be in
a list format and it must be at
least 1,500 words, with few
exceptions. They post often
so your chances of getting accepted are fairly high. 3. A List Apart – A List Apart pays $200 for each accepted
post. They’re not first on the
list, because they tend to
publish less articles, which
means you have a smaller
chance of getting accepted. Same guidelines as above,
1,500 word minimum. 4. International Living – International Living pays $75
for each accepted post. They
are mostly looking for travel
experiences from countries
you have visited. For this site,
it’s more about your experience than your writing
ability. 5. FundsforWriters – FundsforWriters pays $50 for
each accepted post. They are
looking for articles about
writing and making money
with it. They only accept
articles between 500-600 words, but they want you to
make each word count. 6. Uxbooth – Uxbooth pays $100 for each accepted post. They
do tend to take four to eight
weeks to accept and post
articles, so don’t count on this
being a quick money maker.
They take so long, because they pair with editors to only
publish amazing content. 7. iWriter – iWriter pays up to $15 for each accepted post.
That may seem small, but
they aren’t as strict as many
of the others above and they
also allow you to pick exactly
what you write. You can write as many or as few articles as
you want. 8. Textbroker – Textbroker pays up to five cents per word, if
you’re a 5-star writer. You’ll
start by submitting a short
sample article and you will
most likely start as a 3-star
writer, but you can work your way up by writing more and
writing great content. 9. Matador Network – Matador Network pays up to $60 for
each accepted post, but
standard pay is around $20-
$25. They don’t really focus
on a minimum word count, but
they have a maximum count of 1,500 words. 10. The Penny Hoarder – The Penny Hoarder pays up to
$800 (rarely), depending upon
the number of page views you
receive. The pay starts at
$100 for 50,000 page views,
so this isn’t a guaranteed paid article, but it can potentially
be highly rewarding. There’s no doubt that you can
make money with freelance
writing, but it’s a process.
Once you start building your
portfolio and your writing
skills, you can start making some serious money. If you’re
not an experienced writer,
expect to put some time in
before you really start to see
some dough. 3. Sell Your Stuff Ever since the idea of online
auctions came into existence,
the online selling market has
been on the rise. Many are
interested, but don’t know
how to get started. There are still all kinds of ways to make
money by selling online,
whether you’re selling what
you already have or buying
and selling like a store. Before
we get started, here are a few general tips when selling
anything online: Get a PayPal account. If you don’t have a PayPal account, you’ll want to get one
if you’re doing business
online. It’s the standard in
online business for receiving
payment and paying others. Take good pictures. Some of the options below don’t
require you to actually take
the picture and sell the
product, but for the ones that
do, make sure you take a
clear picture that makes your product stand out from the
others. If you’re going to be
taking a lot of pictures, set up
a small “studio-like” area in
your home with a backdrop
and proper lighting to really make your pictures come
across as professional. And
of course, you’ll want a good
camera too. Be honest. If you’re selling used items, be honest about
every dent, scratch, blemish,
etc.. This will reduce many
issues you could run into and
keep your reviews positive. Do good business. Plain and simple. Whether you’re selling
on a small site or opening an
online store, your customer
service matters. You’ll want
to get those positive reviews
and make a good name for yourself. Respond to
questions, concerns and
complaints. Offer a guarantee
if available. Follow those guidelines and
you will do well in online
sales. When you’re ready to
start selling, here’s where you
go: 1. Amazon – Have you heard of FBA? It stands for “Fulfilled
by Amazon” and it’s getting
pretty popular. Basically, you
buy products (in bulk is best)
and ship them to Amazon for
them to store. When your products sell, Amazon packs
them up, ships them out and
sends you the money (after
taking their cut). There are
people making a full-time
living from FBA, while others just do it for some extra
money. 2. CraigsList – Some things don’t ship very well. Other
things may make you feel
uncomfortable to sell to
someone across the country.
Anytime you’re selling a large
item or something you just don’t want to ship, Craigslist
is a great place to go. It’s
simple to list your item (again,
take good pictures!). If you
don’t like the idea of putting
your phone number out there, the interested individual can
send you a message to your
inbox without even getting
your email address. 3. eBay – Of course you can’t read an article about making
money online that doesn’t
mention eBay. You can start
an eBay store and get serious
about it or you can just sell
some stuff to declutter your home. Either way, I’ve made
my fair share from selling on
eBay and it’s still a popular
way to earn money. If you
decide to start an actual eBay
store, you’ll want to find a drop-ship business like Doba that will store and ship items
straight to your customers so
you don’t have to deal with an
inventory. 4. Etsy – If you like to create arts and crafts, you can sell
them on Etsy.It’s completely
free to open an Etsy store.
You simply sign up, post
pictures of your creations and
starting selling. You can choose your payment option,
but PayPal is generally the
easiest. Etsy makes it easy to
sell and keep track of your
inventory. There is a small
listing fee and they take 3.5% of every sale you make. 5. Facebook – Facebook swap shops are great for selling
things locally. It’s like
CraigsList, but a little easier.
You simply search for swap
shops in your area and ask to
join the group. Once you’re in, take a picture of the item,
write a quick description with
the price and post it. It doesn’t
get much easier than that.
You can generally expect to
get about what you would get at a yard sale, maybe a little
more. 4. Blogging Hey look, an article about
making money online that
doesn’t mention blogging. . .
oh wait, here it is. First off, I’m a blogger so it
seems wrong not to mention
it, but more importantly, it’s a
legitimate way to make
money. It’s quite possibly the
least straight-forward way on this list, but it’s very doable
and it’s also quite possibly the
funnest way on this list. I love
blogging and I know hundreds
of bloggers who feel the
same. So let’s talk about making money blogging and
what it really means. Blogging is something that
requires patience, persistence
and discipline. It may mean
writing everyday for over a
year before you really start to
see any money from it. There are exceptions to the rule, but
from my dealings with other
bloggers, it seems to be pretty
common to spend one or even
two years building your blog,
your brand and your authority, before making any serious
amount of money. Some people argue that you
can make money without a lot
of traffic and while that is true
in some circumstances, you
will generally need a lot of
website traffic to start earning from a blog and that takes a
while. Once you’ve reached
that point, here are the
primary ways to monetize
your blog and start earning: 1. Advertising – This is definitely the most old-school
way of earning money with a
blog. It’s also starting to
become the least common
way. You can sell advertising
spots directly on your site or you can sign up with a
company like Google AdSense or Either way, you won’t see a whole
lot of money from ads until
your views are well into the
thousands each day. 2. Affiliates – There are many affiliate networks, such as FlexOffers and CJ Affiliate that allow you to promote
other people’s products and
services. You simply put a
link or a banner on your page
and then you get a percentage
if someone clicks through and buys the product/service.
You’ll want to select products
that are specifically within
your blog’s category.This is
an effective way to earn
money once you have the traffic coming to your blog. 3. Membership – Many people have created a paid
membership area on their
blog. This is typically for
exclusive content that you can
only access in the “member’s
area.” If you have a really great idea on what to include,
this can be a great idea.
You’ll have to create
something that can’t easily be
accessed around the web. 4. Products – You can create your own product, such as an
ebook or computer software.
You would then use your blog
as a promotion tool to get
people to buy your product.
As long as you create a legitimate product with a
whole lot of value, you should
be able to get some buyers,
but like everything else with a
blog, you’ll need the traffic to
get the sells. 5. Services – You can offer a paid service, such as life
coaching, blog coaching, goal
setting or financial planning.
Just be sure to investigate all
the legal implications and
make sure you’re not claiming to be a professional if you’re
not one. With a service like
this, you’re basically using
your blog to sell yourself.
You’ll need to convince people
that you’re worth buying and then be able to back up your
claims once they purchase
your service. 6. Sponsored/paid posts – Many blogs publish sponsored
and paid posts. Sponsored
posts are basically just posts
about a specific brand,
product or service. A
company will pay you to publish an article about it. It’s
similar with other paid posts
as well. Your basically selling
the spot for the article on your
site. If you decide to take this
route, you’ll want to build your traffic before you will get
many offers. 7. Subscription – If you think of something
valuable (newsletter, online
magazine, etc.) that you can
consistently offer on a certain
basis (weekly, monthly, etc.),
you may want to offer a subscription service. This
could be a fee charged each
time your product is sent out
or on a monthly basis. Either
way, this has to be something
that your customers can only get by subscribing to your
website. 8. Videos – This could be an entire section on it’s own.
Many people have made
money by creating YouTube
videos. Evan of EvanTube is a kid and he has made millions by creating reviews of products that other kids his
age would use. It’s not easy
to get views into the millions,
but once you do, you’ll start
seeing some cash come in.
Many bloggers have completely turned to videos to
get their point across by
starting a video blog. If you’re truly interested in
becoming a blogger, start by
looking through the archives
of ProBlogger, Copyblogger and Boost Blog Traffic. Then go read through all the free
guides over at Quick Sprout. It may take you a year to
complete those tasks alone,
but it will be worth it. You’ll
practically have a MBA in
blogging. 5. Work-at-Home
Companies Finally, there are some
companies that will hire you to
work from the comfort of your
own home. If you’re interested
in working for someone else,
while still making your own schedule and deciding where
to work from, here are a few
companies that will let you do
just that: 1. CrowdSource – CrowdSource offers many
types of jobs from
“microtask” jobs to larger
writing and editing jobs. You
decide how much you work
and you can do most of it right at your computer. 2. Demand Studios – Demand Studios is hiring all kinds of
creative professionals, from
writer to filmmakers. The pay
isn’t amazing, but it’s
competitive for a work-at-
home job. 3. Fast Chart – Fast Chart allows you to work from home
as a medical transcriptionist.
There are some requirments
and qualifications listed on the
page, but if you meet them,
you’ll make competitive pay for the industry. You’ll also be
able to set your own schedule
since you’ll be working from
home. 4. Leap Force – Leap Force is one way that Google rates
websites for search engine
ranking. If you’re hired, you
make decent money (usually
over $11/hour), you set your
own schedule and it can be pretty fun to view and rank
websites. 5. Liveops – Liveops is a call center that allows you to work
from home. Once your set up
to take the calls, you can
begin making a weekly
schedule and working from
home. The pay is generally close to $10/hour, but you can
earn more with commissions. 6. SpeakWrite – SpeakWrite will pay you up to $15/hour to
transcribe information. You
set your own schedule and
work from home. Now you’ve got many
different options to start
earning online. If you saw
something that really interests
you, try it out and learn more
about it. If you’re really wanting to make a full-time
income online, you need to be
dedicated to learning how to
do what you want to do. There
are tons of free resources out
there. You just have to search for them!


Nigerians have made millions on the
internet, Nigerians are still making
millions and they will still continue to
make millions on the internet. Thousands
of Nigerians are earning themselves
millions of Naira online on a monthly basis while some earn enough online to
quit their 7-7 job to become their own
boss. The interesting part is that you can Make Money Online in Nigeria legitimately in 2015 without involving in
any fraudulent activities. The industry is
still in its infancy and there is still a long
way for it to grow. I created this post in 2011, and ever
since then, I have been updating it with
the latest methods Nigerias can use to
make money. In previous times,I introduced people to Information Marketing, Blogging and Bulk Sms Business. But I noticed that out of the three of them, Blogging is the surest
and easiest. Ask me why? If you start a
blog, you can make money on it via
affiliate, ads, information marketing and
the likes. Just keep reading for more
enlightenment. You don’t have to be a whizkid or
programmer before you can make money
online . Your sex, age, race are not
barriers to making money online. Once you are able to read this short piece, your
success is guaranteed. Now, I know you
should be ready to leave the poverty
zone for prosperity zone. I want to introduce you to a business
Model that has worked for me and for
thousands of Nigerians. It is called
‘Blogging’. You might be thinking ‘Olu, I
failed blogging, please talk about
another thing’. The simple truth is, ‘you are not doing it the right way’. It’s likely
you are in the categories of blogger that: Blog in a niche because someone told them
he/she makes money from it Are impatience (they want to start today, and
start making $200/hour in the next 1 month) Are comparing themselves with other bloggers Lacks Motivation (no visitors) Not able to face failures If you are among the categories listed
above and failed, don’t worry. I’m ready
to help as many intending bloggers as
possible to achieve their dreams. Important Rules: 1. Blogging requires consistent efforts. You don’t
have to start a niche because someone else
makes money from it. I’ve always tried to set-
up an entertainment blog because I initially
thought that was the only niche I can make
money from. The temptation always come whenever I see the figures made by Nigerian
entertainment bloggers. But I’ve always failed,
nobody heard of the blog. I had to look inward
and start something I have always wanted to
do. Apart from that, I worked everyday to keep
my blogs going even when I was making $zero. Be consistent, never be intimidated by
the figures you see online, follow your passion
.i.e. the niche you can be yourself. 2. Be Patient. There is a popular cliché we’ve
always heard since when we were a kid. It
says ‘ Rome wasn’t built in a day’. Sure. You
just have to be patient if it seems nothing is
coming forth from your effort. Those ads that
promised $100/hour are bunch of pranks. Most of them want to swindle you of your hard
earned money. Most pro-bloggers you see
today don’t make a dime in their first year of
blogging. My first 5 months of blogging was
‘horrible’. ‘Horrible’ in the sense that nothing
was showing forth as compensation. Your start might also seems ‘horrible’. Horrible start –
you check your blog stats and what you saw
was 1 pageview. Meaning you are the only one
that checked your blog. Just be calm,
everything gona be aright. It’s just a matter of
time and learning. What if I don’t Know a Niche to Start? Some people are like ‘I’m not pretty good
at anything, I don’t know the niche to
start’. The answer is simple. If you don’t
know a niche to start, buy 5 books on a
topic that interest you. After reading the
five books completely, start sharing what you’ve learnt on your blog. How Much Does it Take to Set-Up a Blog? Blogger and WordPress are the most
popular and commonly used blogging
platforms. Both are free, but in the case
of WordPress you need to purchase a
hosting account. Meanwhile if you are
using Blogger, you don’t need to host anything, just get a custom domain
name. You can start a blog based on
what you have in your pocket. I heard you
say ‘That can’t be possible, I only have
N5k’. With N5k you can get a custom
domain name for your blog with N1,500- N2,000 and start blogging on Blogger. If
you are buoyantly ok, you can start on
WordPress. Check: Benefits of Using Blogger over

Blogger How to Make Money Online Blogging Making money from a blog is quite the
easiest thing, but where the work lies is
the traffic. Below are some means to
make money from a blog: Advertising Selling your own product Affiliate Marketing and etc. Hardly have I seen a day where I won’t
receive calls/mails from some members
of this blog and even visitors requesting
for easy means to get an Approved Google Adsense account. But the funniest part is that their blogs have
zero-100 daily pageviews. Do you think
you can make anything with adsense
from such stats? It’s quite impossible.
The real truth is to work on your traffic.
You don’t have to rely on Adsense alone. With enough traffic, you can accept
direct advertising, sell your own product
to your audience and the likes. Now that you Know Now that you now the right and easiest
model to making money online, some will
be like ‘what’s the next thing now?’ The
next thing is to set up your blog, publish
informative articles and start making
money…… Wow! That’s easy….. yea simple but requires work. You know what people say about
blogging? They say ‘blogging isn’t a real
business’. I agree with them because no
business fulfils these features: What business gives you the freedom to live
anywhere with a wifi connection? What other business can give you a 90%+
profit margin? In what other business could you travel around
the world while saving money? Such business doesn’t exist aside
blogging. But how do you get started? Before I begin, let me introduce myself to
you. My name is Olusegun Fapohunda, an Undergraduate of AAUA. I make my
living from my blogs, which Just Naira is
one. So no nonsense, no fluff. I know
how hard and frustrating it can be to get
started when you don’t know how to get
started. I am going to make it extremely easy for
you to blog. I am ready to help you get

Top ways to make money online and offline.

Hands down the quickest way to
make a lot of money (well, without breaking the law). Lots of students
have genuinely made £100s from
this technique. It’s completely legal,
risk free, tax free, and anyone can
do it. It works by taking advantage of
free bets regularly offered by
betting sites through ‘matching’
them at a betting exchange.
Matched betting eliminates the risk
(you are betting both for and against a certain outcome). This leaves you being able to
squeeze out the free bet, which can
be as much as £200! Multiply this
by how many betting sites there are
and you can quite easily come
away with a profit of a few hundred pounds. Owen walks you through how to
make your first £15 profit (using a
real life example) in this gem of a guide to matched betting. If you know of any better way to make
£30/hr sitting at home, please let us
know! 2. Online surveys Credit: Julio Marquez – An increasingly popular way for
students to make money is to fill
out online surveys in their spare
time. Research companies are
always recruiting new members to
answer surveys and test new products. For a few minutes of form filling,
you can make a couple of quid
which is paid as cash or rewards.
You can bag up to £3 ($5) for some
surveys! A few good ones to try are: Toluna, Vivatic, MySurvey, YouGov, SurveyBods, Valued Opinions, OnePoll, iPoll, Global Test Market, Hiving, PanelBase, The Opinion Panel, Harris Poll, Opinion Outpost, Your word, Pinecone, IPSOS, New Vista. Also sign up for which rewards you for surveys as

Networks The historically hard-to-break world
of investing in stock markets and
currencies has been cracked wide
open. Today there is no need to be
a fat cat or fund the yachts of Wolf of Wall Street style stock brokers. You can do it all yourself
with the help of free online market
trading platforms. Having spent many hours
researching this new opportunity,
I’ve been experimenting with which has over 4 million users worldwide. It was
recently featured in the BBC 2 documentary “Traders: Millions by
the Minute” and the Financial Times. One of the best things on eToro is
the CopyTrader feature. This lets you literally see, follow and copy
the investments of other top
performing traders. Follow George’s complete guide to trading on eToro to learn more. I think $200 is a good amount to get
the most out of the learning curve
by trying out a few different
markets. If nothing else you’ll learn
a great deal about various
investments and industries. Warning: trading can be volatile and
you can lose money, so don’t throw
your life savings into it! 5. Review websites & apps
for cash Well it seems like you’re pretty
nifty with a web browser, so
perhaps it’s time to turn pro and
browse websites as a paid and fun
job! Introducing – a new platform that pays everyday
people to review all kinds of
websites. Each review takes
around 20 minutes and bags you
$10 (£6.50) via Paypal. Simply sign up here, complete a test review and look forward to
receiving websites in your inbox. 6. The ‘Disney Vault’
secret To keep demand high across
generations, Disney Studios
carefully restrict the supply of
some home release classics. They
are locked away in the ‘vault’ for
8-10 years before being released for a short unspecified time. Buy them in this window at normal
retail price and you can turn a nice
profit when they go off sale for
another decade or so. For example, in 2011 you could buy Beauty and the Beast on Blu-ray 3D for just £24.99. In just a couple
of years it was on Amazon for a
staggering £74.99! Importantly, not all Disney releases
are subject to the vault and only
the true classics will maintain such
demand. Right now there are just 2 titles out
of the vault which I would
recommend snapping up. They are Bambi Diamond Edition Blu-ray and Cinderella Diamond Edition Blu-ray. 7. ‘Get Paid To’ sites Similar to making money from
online surveys, GPT sites reward
you in cash and vouchers for
completing various offers or
activities online. The most popular sites today are Toluna,, InboxPounds and PaidOffers. Exciting update! We’ll soon be launching our own GPT service for
our readers. Invites will be limited
and UK only, please join our
mailing list if you’re interested in
hearing once it’s live: Subscribe 8. Start your own website If you’ve ever seen the film The Social Network then you’ve most likely had your brain spinning as to
what website you can start-up to
make you billions. And of course there are lots of
stories out there about successful
students who have started a site
while at university, or even bought
a domain name and later sold it for
1000s. In fact, Save the Student is one such example of a website started
at university by Owen Burek in his
first year, which has since grown
into a full-time and successful
enterprise. Read Owen’s 4-step guide to setting up a website if you’re interested in finding out more. It’s
really not that difficult to get started
and there are plenty of
opportunities to make money
online. 9. Sell your notes If you don’t mind sharing your notes
with other students it’s a great way
to generate a little extra cash.
There are sites out there that you
can upload your notes to, along
with your price, and then when another student downloads them
you get paid. Sites like Notesale are free for you to list your notes but tend to
take a cut of your profit in order to
handle the marketing etc so that
you don’t have to go out there and
promote your notes yourself. You will most likely have to upload
PDFs but it’s worth it for the return
and you can submit handwritten
notes but you’re likely to make
more money if they’re typed up. 10. Write and publish a
Kindle eBook If students are good at anything, it’s
researching and writing. With the Amazon Kindle store, anyone can publish an eBook and make
money. And the Kindle app is now available
on almost any device (laptops,
iPads, smartphones and yes,
Kindles) so your global market is
huge! List your book for £1.49 – £6.99 and
you earn 70% of the sale.
Considering Amazon is the ultimate
selling machine (and remember
people are looking to spend), that is
a fantastic deal. The key to success with eBooks is
to create value, and write non-
fiction. Simply bundling information
you have researched and complied
on a common problem (eg. ‘secrets’
to finding a job) and then presenting it in an easy to digest
format (an eBook) justifies
someone spending a few quid on it. Another big tip is to have a great
cover designed so it stands out,
and once your book is live on the
Kindle store it’s really important to
get some reviews so it shows up
higher in results. Encourage readers to leave an honest review
at the end of your book. The best thing about this lucrative
idea is that once you’ve invested
the time (say 20 hours), you’ll earn
a passive income for years to come! For a step-by-step guide to
publishing and earning with eBooks,
see “How to write a nonfiction eBook in 21 days“. 11. Affiliate marketing If you’ve got a good presence on
social media or perhaps you even
have a blog or website, you can
start bringing in money immediately
by promoting all sorts of
companies, products, services and offers online. Sign up to an affiliate network such
as Affiliate Window, check their offers blog or browse the merchant
listings to find something you think
your friends would be interested in,
grab your affiliate link and share it.
If someone buys (can be within up
to 90 days) using your link you’ll make a nice commission. To take it a step further, set up a
website (read our guide) or a topical Facebook page and invite all
your friends to join it and post your
affiliate offers on there. 12. Mobile phone recycling Credit: CannedTuna – See how much you can get for your
old mobile phone using our in-house mobile phone price comparison tool! Maybe ask your parents if
they have any lying around too. You can get some good money and
help the environment by recycling
mobile phones with certain
companies listed on the comparison
tool. But be aware: you won’t
always get the quoted cash since it depends on ‘condition’. We
recommend Mobile Cash Mate for the fairest and highest payouts in
most cases (they sent us a £203
cheque for an iPhone 5). 13. Become a ‘Clickworker’ The concept is based on ‘internet crowd-sourcing’
where businesses advertise
specific, scalable tasks they need
completing quickly. And for us, it’s
an easy way to make fast cash
from our couch. There are a variety of tasks, but
most commonly they involve
mindless data entry, web research
or form filling. You are rewarded
and paid in cash (via Paypal) for the
work you do, and you can choose for what and when you work. Give it a go. [If you’re US based, also try Amazon’s ‘Mechanical Turk‘]. 14. Claim tax back Many students work part-time or
during the summer months, and
others will be on placements or
paid internships. More often than
not, if you are a student working
during the year, you will be overpaying income tax. Why? Simply because few students
reach the personal tax-free income
allowance each year but are put on an emergency basic tax-code by
their employers meaning tax is
being paid when it shouldn’t be. Use our student tax-back service to
help you reclaim any tax you should
not have paid. Just enter your
details in the calculator here to work out what you may be owed.
Otherwise for more information
read our guide on claiming tax back here. 15. Get cashback when
shopping This is not only a way to make
money but also to save money as a
student. If you look at it in a
different way then you are making
money with every purchase you
would have made anyway, whether it be 10% or 0.5% cashback. There are a number of cashback
sites out there which pay you the
commission they otherwise would
have earned. We recommend signing up with
both Top Cashback and which are free and offer the best selection of retailers
and exclusives. 16. A part-time job A part-time job is the obvious first
choice, opted for by most students
looking to supplement their student
loan. It provides a pretty steady
flow of income and can enable you
to gain valuable work experience. However, depending on where you
live, jobs are not always easy to
find. Check local classifieds, our student job search, student job websites and your university careers service for vacancies. It’s also worth signing up with the Graduate Recruitment Bureau, a free service which will match you
with both part-time jobs or graduate
opportunities. Read our guide to finding a part- time job whilst studying for more tips. 17. Gigs on Fiverr Fiverr is now the world’s largest
marketplace for people to make
money selling small services
(known as ‘gigs’). What you offer could be absolutely
anything, from writing and
translating, social media posting, playing pranks and teaching to creating music, voiceovers and short video clips for people all
around the world! The default price is $5 (hence
Fiverr..), but you can attach extra
services to gigs for more money.
Whilst it might not seem like much,
it can quickly add up and there are
plenty of examples of people making a really good living from the
site. The key is to get a system in
place which minimises the time
spent on each gig. But there is another way to profit even more from Fiverr for
potentially far less work. How? By
simply reselling gigs elsewhere.
For example, find a decent logo designer then reply to jobs on Elance or even local classifieds. A $5 spend can easily become $50+,
and it’s repeatable! If you’re not interested in selling at
all there’s SO much good stuff you
can get done for yourself. Have a browse and get inspired! 18. Review music for money If you love music, make it your
business by reviewing unsigned
bands and artists online for cash
with Slicethepie. It can take a while to build up your
reputation but some users of the
site have said that they earn £40 a
month. This may not sound like
much, but if it’s something you
enjoy then it shouldn’t be hard work and is another thing for your CV. Money you earn will be in $US but
anyone can sign up and review. To get started, head over to Slicethepie now or read our quick guide for more info. 19. Sell second-hand course
books One great way to make money is to
buy other students’ text books at
the end of the year, and then sell
them just after freshers’ week –
when the new intake of students
know that they need them! You can either advertise on
campus or list them online very
easily on Books Trade-In (just bear in mind they take a commission on books sold). For more tips on selling items
online click here. 20. Competitions Entering competitions of course
comes with no guarantees, but
there is a growing community of so-
called ‘compers’ in the UK
consistently making up to £50,000 a
year through all sorts of competitions. Types of competitions available to
enter range from simple registration
forms and Facebook page liking to
answering questions correctly over
the phone to being a TV game show
contestant. Imagine you made it onto Deal or No Deal instead of just watching it! Start by entering our very own
monthly student competition (Like our Facebook page to see when our next one is)! Then head to our active competitions page to enter other free competitions that we have
found. Just note that some of these
sites may send you spam so use
an alias email address and opt-out
of as many of the offers as
possible. For loads more tips on achieving
success and making money from
competitions, read our guide to entering competitions. 21. Buy and sell domain
names A domain name is just a website
address (eg. ‘’
or ‘’) and there are lots
of extensions (.com, .net,
etc). They cost as little as £1.99 to
register with or yet premium domain names can fetch £1,000s if
not millions when sold on. In 2007 went for a
cool $35m! Now you’re probably not going to
come across anything like that, but
you can still turn a quick profit with
a bit of searching. The trick is to
find available domain names which
have some commercial value, snap them up and then list them for sale
on a site like 22. Mystery shopping Today becoming a mystery shopper
is easier than you think and you
can get rewarded handsomely. We’ve recently come across a
really fun smartphone app called Roamler that pays you in cash for completing various tasks in your
local area. So definitely check that
out first! More traditionally, there are plenty
of agencies that pay you to visit all
sorts of shops to feedback on how
they are performing. For more info
on where to apply see our guide to becoming a mystery shopper. 23. Be an extra Do you fancy yourself as a budding
young actor or just that person that
walks past in the background shot
of an episode of Eastenders? It could be you if you apply to be an
extra. The pay isn’t bad either – £60-80 a
day on average, and you hardly
have to do anything! You can apply at Be On Screen for a number of opportunities or 2020 casting is another agency (just know they take a cut from
your earnings). 24. Sell all your old CDs,
games and movies If you are looking to make a very
quick buck, then selling your old
bits and bobs that are cluttering up
your room is a good idea. The best thing about it is that you
can rip all the songs and films onto
your laptop or external hard drive
before selling them. This means
that you are only really selling the
plastic and artwork! You can earn anything from 10p to
£20 per item, and the earnings can
really add up if you have a large
collection. Whilst you’re at it, see if
your parents have any ‘clutter’
they’d be happy to see the back of. You can also sell almost anything
for free on Amazon Trade-In or Preloved and sites like MusicMagpie will pay you instantly for sending in unwanted
items. For more tips and places to sell
check out our guide on selling DVDs, CDs and games. 25. Sell on your education! Become a tutor to local GCSE or A-
level students (find out more about tutoring here). There are now a few online tutor sites too, so
you can go also global without too
much hassle. You may feel as if you aren’t
qualified to be a tutor, but seeing as
you are at university you will most
likely have the qualifications to tutor
for GCSE or even A-Level. Some
parents may feel that their child will react better to a younger tutor, and
it can be great experience, so why
not give it a go? You can advertise on SchoolsTrader or sign up with UK Tutors. You can expect to earn around £10 an hour. However,
make sure you don’t have to do too
much tutoring around your exams! 26. Sell your photos If you think you’ve got a good shot
and a little creativity, try uploading
your photographs for free to stock
websites. A good starting point is Fotolia or istockphoto. Make more money selling photo
subjects that people are
demanding, and there’s a great
resource to find this out here. It might be a good idea to test them
out in print first yourself (get free photo prints here). 27. Rent out your car
parking space Some student accommodation comes with a drive or garage. If
you aren’t using your parking space
and you live in a busy area then
you might be in luck. There are
plenty of people that may work in
the city centre and are fed up of paying through the roof for daily
parking. Advertise your space on Gumtree, Parklet or Just Park. Or, check out our full guide to renting out your parking space. 28. Work as a charity
collector Ok so this job takes a certain kind
of person, as you’ll have to take a
lot of rejection and be persistent. But if you are bubbly, personable
and reckon you could sell ice to an
Eskimo then this could actually be a
great student money making idea.
You get paid commission on new
sign ups (typically around £20). Have a look at Wesser as well as charity websites like Oxfam. 29. Babysitting It’s a classic money-maker, and for
good reason. You get paid (well) to
watch TV and not very much else! Be warned that you will need a
CRB (Criminal Records Bureau)
check to look after small children,
even though some parents may not
ask for one. If you are wondering
what to charge, look at local Gumtree ads, but you can expect to
be paid over £8ph even if you aren’t
trained in child care. Aside from advertising yourself,
you might want to try creating a
profile on It really is easy money (unless you
get stuck with the child from hell!). 30. Dog walking & sitting If babies ain’t your thing, then
maybe canines are… looking after
other people’s dogs is big business.
Just think that as a student you’re
likely to have free time during the
day when others are out at work and worried about their pets at
home. You could bag around £7 per dog
for an hour walk, and it’s also a
great way to keep fit. Join Tailster who will match you up with dog
owners. Alternatively advertise
your services locally with fliers or
on classified websites such as
Gumtree. 31. Become a freelance
interviewer Do you have ambitions to take on a
career in HR? Do you love asking
questions? Believe it or not, there
are companies that will ask you to
carry out interviews for them and
pay you for your time. It couldn’t be simpler. You could make £185 a week plus
have your travelling costs covered.
The downside is that you will have
to commit to at least 20 hours a
week, so make sure that you have
the time! Apply at NatCen. 32. Rent out your house for
filming Directors for TV and film are
always on the hunt for houses to
film in. For instance, a scene for Coronation Street was recently filmed in the student house one of
the Save the Student editors used to live in! Not only can you make good money
but it’s crazy seeing your own
place on TV. Start out by looking at My House Your Shoot. 33. Rent out your body According to our recent survey, 7% of students use their body in
some way to make a buck. If you are comfortable taking off
your kit then why not try life
modelling. Sit there in the buff while
budding artists capture your every
curve (or pokey bits) in frightening
detail! Try RAM, a website especially designed for these kind
of jobs. You could also get involved in clinical drug trials. If this scares you a little then you can find more
information here about what’s involved. Warning: Do not do anything you are not comfortable with, no matter
how desperate you are for money!
There has been an unhealthy rise in
student prostitution in recent years
– do not fall victim to it! 34. Freelance work Perhaps you enjoy writing,
managing Facebook pages or doing
a little bit of graphic design in your
spare time. There are so many
freelance jobs out there that
require simple skills or just time that someone else might not have. And the best thing about freelancing is that you can work for clients in the UK and around the
world with just an internet
connection from home, to your own
hours whilst developing valuable
skills. A great place to start is with the
leading freelance site Or try using our student job search to find freelance jobs closer to home. 35. Busking If you can sing or dance then this is
your time to shine baby! Did you
know that Justin Bieber started off
busking? That’s right, with a little
work you can be as annoying as
him. There are really no tips for this
except choose a good spot with
high footfall, make sure you are
good and play your heart out. Some
buskers in the past have been
known to make upwards of £20 hour. 36. Sell clothes on eBay Everyone’s best friend when it
comes to getting rid of junk is eBay. Online auctions are a sure- fire way to turn that sleeveless
jacket (which came in and out of
fashion in a week) into hard cash. Some eBay sellers look at trends
and try to predict what will be big
ahead of the market. If you are
good and don’t mind taking a risk
then you can buy early in bulk and
sell on when the craze hits. For lots more tips on selling on
eBay read this guide. 37. Sell your stories and
videos If you have an interesting story
then you could try selling it to the
papers. It could be anything from
sleeping with a professional
footballer to getting caught in a
clothes horse! One of the Save the Student team was unfortunate enough to
have a pigeon fly through and
smash their window at university
and sold the story to The Sun for a tidy £50. You could also film your mates at
all times and send it into You’ve Been Framed to net yourself £250 and a few seconds of fame. 38. YouTube videos According to recent stats we now
watch more videos on YouTube
than searches on Google. And with
the recently introduced YouTube Partner Program you can now profit from making and uploading
videos. You will receive a
percentage of the advertising
revenue collected per 1,000 views. Depending on how successful you
are (virality, subscriber base and
topic) you can make a lot of money,
and there are plenty of stories
every week of more and more
YouTubers making it their career. For more tips read our guide to making money from YouTube. 39. Network marketing Also known as Multi-Level
Marketing (MLM), this is a business
model that allows you to generate
ongoing income in two ways: by
making a commission selling
products and by recruiting other members who go on to sell. The
later allows you to make money
from the sales made by those you
have recruited. Importantly, this is not a pyramid
scheme (they are illegal) because
there is an end goal which involves
a customer buying a product or
service of value. It’s also not a ‘get rich quick’
scheme. You will have to work I’m
afraid! However with the growth of
social media, network marketing is
becoming easier and lots of people
are now making a decent living from it. This is a serious way of making
good money on your own terms and
it’s well worth reading up on it. I
recommend getting “The Business of the 21st Century” by Robert Kiyosaki. 40. Source property for
wealthy investors We all know how much money
there is in property, but on the
surface (with house prices as high
as they are) you might be thinking
this market is off-limits. Truth is, lots of people make a
great deal of cash simply sourcing
suitable properties for wealthy
investors who simply have no time. The trick is to find properties below
market value (BMV) by avoiding
estate agents and instead flyering
your area with your contact details
offering to buy houses. Then
approach investors with a no- brainer offer to pass on the details
of cut-price property in exchange
for a % of the sale value. Most cities will have monthly
networking events for landlords and
property investors. Track these
down, sign up, put on your best suit
and go along with lots of business
cards. Or you could start on LinkedIn or even Twitter to build
some initial contacts. As you might imagine, this isn’t
necessarily a quick way to make
money but once you’ve got a few
investors in your phone book it can
prove to be very lucrative in the
long run. If you’re interested, I recommend reading this book. There are many other creative ways to
make money as a student, such as our 50 business ideas. With any luck you’ll be on the road to making millions! Please feel free to share your own ideas by leaving a comment
