I’ve never been a fan of income or spending reports, so I’m glad you moved away from them. I think one reason people get frustrated with bloggers (myself included) is they don’t explain exactly how they make money online. I could see more than a few people get annoyed about this -> “I’m not going to spill all of the details here because they are boring, but suffice it to say that we created a few businesses that fill a need.” My first reaction was “speak for yourself! I’ll let you know if the details are boring!” And in all honesty I bet most people wouldn’t be bored hearing the details. Not that you have an obligation to share them – nor does it make sense to explain business plans – but I really do think that people get frustrated about the lack of long, detailed posts about exactly how people make money online.
If you start getting too big for EBay or decide you want to try a different flavor, Amazon has a marketplace as well. I prefer using Amazon because I can depend on their shipping, have a Prime account, and trust their reviews (overall, not usually singularly, although occasionally that as well). Learn more about Amazon’s marketplace by clicking on this Lifehack, and delve into the marketplace.
If you are more interested in the coding side of building websites, freelance web development might be your wheelhouse. If you already know HTML, CSS or JavaScript and have a good eye for solving problems with creative solutions, you can launch a service to build attractive, easy-to-use websites for small businesses. If you need to learn the basics of web developing before launching your full-stack career, you can take a simple beginner's course to get started.
The internet is the great equalizer. In business specifically, it has leveled the playing field. Anyone can start a money-making online business—anyone with a computer, that is. But here’s the thing: virtually no technical experience is needed. Today there are plenty of tools you can use to build an online business that makes the technical work a lot easier than it was in the past.
Webinars are quite possibly one of the most potent ways you can make an exorbitant amount of money online. You'll need an audience to train and you'll need to know what you're talking about. Of course, this usually requires having a website and some semblance of an online presence. However, people can still do webinars without all of that. For example, you might have a sizable social media following and you train them every week on something to do with social media. But you will need a product to embed and sell at some point. Don't worry about it in the beginning. In my experience, the best webinar platform out there is GoToWebinar. 
“We know that from past research we’ve done that flexibility ranks really high in terms of what employees are looking for,” says Jodi Kasten, managing director at Indeed Canada. “I think for employers, they don’t have to pay for physical office space … And I think there are a lot of roles that don’t have to be in the office and they have other metrics and goals that they measure success by.”
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.
