This royalty will be paid out for the life our your page, which means that small initial effort will continue to earn you money many months later.

That means you'll be able to review pages submitted by other authors, and decide if they meet our guidelines.

Get paid for photography
Not for everybody, but if you are a keen and talented amateur you should perhaps consider listing your photos on sites such as iStockPhoto. These work by offering your photos for download to their user base. You'll generally be paid on a per download basis, and the fees can be pretty good if you are lucky.
Given the competition, finding a niche is the clever thing to do. You may find a demand for subject matter for which you've already got a library of images. However, you may end up spending time uploading photos that nobody wants, so watch out.
Earn money through surveys, studies and focus groups
Surveys sound a bit dull, and perhaps are, but companies and other organisations are always looking for opinions. That means there are paid opportunities out there, with one of the best known being YouGov. You can earn in the region of £1 to £2 for a completed survey.
Some survey companies may also perform focus groups, such as Itracks. These can be more stimulating than surveys, but oftern more restictive in terms of when you can participate.
Online selling at a profit
Thousands of people sell on ebay, but margins can be small and competition intense. Again, finding a niche and building a reputation is a winning strategy but is not as simple as it sounds.
Plus you need to aware that certain products may require you to buy stock upfront, and find somewhere to store it until it is sold. Then you need to factor in the hassle of posting items to the winning bidders. Basically online selling can make you money, but is not a walk in the park anymore. However, take the time to build a virtual shop and it will provide an income stream.
