We’re not going to turn down ways to earn extra cash. Here are a few ideas to get you started on earning an income without having to break your back.

1. Sell information: If you’re an expert on something, consider curating your knowledge and selling it online through an eBook. You can also set up an online course and once you’re done with the fundamentals of it, market it then sit back and watch the cash roll in.

2. Pursue dividend income: This means buying shares, investing in Treasury bills or joining a successful Sacco. Educate yourself to ensure you pick investments that are sure to bring in a return.

3. Start blogging: It may take a while to pick up, but with consistent high-quality content, targeted advertising and smart use of search engine optimisation, you can turn a blog into a strong source of income.

4. Take advantage of the app economy: There are several apps these days that are happy to pay you to watch videos or give reviews, like SlideJoy and Apptrailers. Shop around and sign up.

5. Sell websites: Flippa allows you to sell websites, apps or domains that you’ve created and believe someone else would be willing to pay for. You can also use the platform to buy your own online business.
