Making money online? Yeah, easy… These days making a consistent income online is touted as the simple way to live your dream life and tell your boss to GFY*.
(*look it up)
Now… In so many of these ‘how to make money online’ blogs, people run through a fairly generic and boring list of shit like ‘do surveys’ and ‘start a dog walking business’.
Because you’ve read these exact tips on about 48 other blogs by now, we’re gonna hit you with some less obvious ways to make $100 every day.
First up though, a few basics.
The trick to making $100 every day
As many people will tell you, including us on this blog multiple times, your income should really come from a diverse range of sources. This means that you shouldn’t just rely on one channel to make your money as this can quickly backfire if something goes wrong.
You might be a great personal trainer, for example, but what if you put your back out or break your leg? Suddenly you have no income until you’re back in action.
The same goes for creatives such as content writers (like myself). It just takes a few changes to the way content is done (oh, hello AI) and suddenly your income drops.
So thats why having more than one way to make $100 a day will help you to genuinely make more than $100 a day.
In short, one of these is good. Multiples of these is better. And while one might make you $100 every few days, another might pick up the slack and make you another $100 on the slow days that your other source of income doesn’t perform.
Good. Lets go get ’em tiger….
Ways to make $100 every day
1. Start a Fiverr gig
While people often sniff at Fiverr as a race to the bottom, it’s actually a great way to add a method of making consistent income to your portfolio. The trick is to have a specific offer that is well priced (usually lower than you’d like to charge) and then build your reputation and price over time.
For example, say you offer video editing. You might think, well, I’ll jump in at $100 for a basic video editing gig and see how it goes.
But as an unknown, people are less likely to take a chance on you.
Find what the lowest priced gigs are in your industry, and offer something around that price. Get a few gigs under your belt and once you hit Level One seller, ramp those prices up baby!
Yes, that early lowball stage is a bit annoying and frustrating, but once you have levelled up it’s MUCH easier to raise your prices and earn your worth.
2. Start an affiliate website
Niche blogs are still an excellent way to make money. The best way to do this is to think of your niche subject, build a website and stack that site full of links to your chosen affiliates.
You can register at sites such as Awin, Impact, CJ.com and Trade Tracker to be an affiliate and then join affiliate programs.
To make money with affiliate marketing, you’ll need to offer useful content such as reviews, comparisons or even useful information. Basically, look at affiliate marketing as working in sales for specific companies who will pay you commission to big them up.

3. Sell digital products
Selling digital products is one of the easiest ways to automate your income and earn a steady $100 every day. At least. Choose platforms such as Etsy to sell things like digital downloads, or even sell through your own website using platforms like Shopify or WooCommerce.
Popular digital products might include games, software products or downloadable templates.
4. Sell AI Images
You might have seen everyone shouting about this on YouTube, saying they made a million dollars in 2 weeks or something. While we’re not saying this is a million dollar idea, you could very easily be making $100 a day from selling AI images.
Sign up for Midjourney, or one of the other AI image generators springing up. Identify images that people are looking for and are willing to pay for, and then post them on paid images sites such as Shutterstock or Adobe Stock.
5. Kindle Self-Publishing
OK yes, I know KDP is very 2009. But trust me when I say there is still plenty of money to be made selling on Amazon’s self publishing platform. If you want to be taking $100 every day, you will need a broad library of titles, so don’t assume that your one book idea will make it.
Successful authors will have a series of books, or various titles in specific niches. There is a lot to do it, and this isn’t the easiest way to make 100 bucks every day – but it could be good to add to your portfolio.
6. Offer lead generation
This one is tricky, but is potentially very lucrative. Pretty much every company out there is looking for more customers, right? And while businesses often wait for an influx of customers from their SEO efforts, B2B business often relies on lead generation.
To do lead gen for people you will need to:
- Understand how to do effective email marketing
- Have access to lead gen tools such as Apollo or Instantly
- Know how to find leads, often using tools like ContactOut
While lead gen has become a very spammy service, the truth it that is can be a great way to bring in much more than 100 bucks a day.
7. Set yourself up on OnlyFans
Hang on, what? Isn’t OnlyFans for home grown porn stars and cosplay girls? Ah well, yes it is. But there is plenty of opportunity for savvy entrepreneurs to make more than $100 a day on OF.
While adult work is the money maker here, and guys could make like that too, you can also try your hand at:
- A cooking channel
- A niche interest page (there are pages for mushrooms and all sorts)
- Curated adult content (collecting great porn that people are happy to pay you for)
- DIY porn – why not become a pornstar yourself?
To succeed with OnlyFans you do need to be a bit of a social media wizard. But if you can attract a niche audience, there is way more than $100 a day to be made here.
8. Flip products on eBay
Got an eye for a bargain? Buy and sell products on eBay for a profit. Yes, this has been done to death, but there are still A LOT of people who do very well from eBay flipping.
Although you will need to invest time in sourcing items and posting them, this can be a great way to make 100 bucks or more every day.
9. Start an online shop or dropshipping
Why even start selling on eBay, when you could start a whole online ecommerce business yourself? Dropshipping is another popular term, and a sales model that basically relies on Amazon. You’ll need to buy a bulk stock product, ship it to an Amazon warehouse and then optimize those product listings to get your product selling.
Yes, dropshipping still works, and yes people still make a lot of money from it.
But if you want to cut out the Amazon percentage, setup your own online shop and start selling there. Setting up a Shopify shop is just as easy as setting up on Amazon too.
10. Offer social media management
Got a good social media following? Know how to get those thumbs and hearts flowing? Offering social media management as a service is only getting bigger as businesses realise the value of organic social media. And yes, you could be making $100 a day or more from this relatively quickly if you are good.
The trick is to offer growth on one or two platforms, and then identify the companies or people who might benefit. For example, fashion and food products will likely want to get good engagement on Instagram or TikTok, while business services will want to make Linkedin growth their focus.
Work out what you do best and start offering your services.
11. Content writing and management
With the arrival of AI content, lets not kid ourselves. Beginner content writers are gonna struggle to make a start at the moment. BUT…
There is plenty of work out there for savvy and high quality content writers.
The trick to success is:
- Have a good understanding and focus on one or two industries (eg. healthcare or sports for example)
- Understand how to REALLY do SEO
- Know how to plan a content strategy
Many content writers start with dreams of making $1000s a week, but then find themselves writing for peanuts. But if you can master a niche, do SEO AND plan a content strategy, you’ll easily make more than $100 every day.
12. Start small businesses
If you want to be making 100 dollars a day, a good way to do this is to not rely on one source of income. Having multiple small businesses that can operate either on their own, or with minimal input, can all help you achieve your financial goals.
Businesses that could work well as low cost startups with potential to make decent recurring revenue include:
- Pet sitting or dog walking
- Pop up food stand
- Content writing or social media management
- House clearance services
- Business catering (selling lunch items at offices or industrial parks for example)
- …Almost everything else on this list above
The idea is that you want a business that can be done easily for a few hours and then you do something else.
13. Diet or fitness coaching
Attaining that dream physique is hard work. Just ask anyone who sits on their ass all day for a living. And this is where high quality fitness coaching, or diet coaching, comes in.
You’ll obviously need some credentials, such as training certifications. But if you can help people lose weight and hit their body goals, you’ll easily make $100 every day.

14. Delivery work
OK, this might be hard work, but delivery drivers are in high demand. From food to parcels, chances are someone is hiring for delivery work near you. And while it is an assured $100 a day in Europe and North America, our readers from other less wealthy nations might be ruling this out with a strong ‘nah fuck that’.
OK. But what about setting up your own delivery firm? A bike, a scooter or a car and a few contacts and you could be making some good money very quickly.

- Carrd for simple websites
