Selling Unwanted Items:

If you want to sell a number of items at once Music Magpie is an excellent way to do it. You can sell itms such as like CDs, DVDs, Games, Blu-rays, Books and Electronics like Mobile Phones, Apple goods & Games Consoles. They give you an instant price too.

Another way to sell unwanted stuff from around your home is on Facebook, both on their marketplace and in selling groups. EBay and Amazon Marketplace are great places to sell, but on Facebook there are no associated fees to pay. Search Facebook for ‘for sale’ and lots of local and UK wide groups will appear. They all have their own rules, but generally you can post most household items, furniture, clothes, toys etc. Once joined, you name your price, put up a pic and description, and wait for replies to your post. There’s also a great facility that allows you to post to up to twenty groups at a time, which makes the process quite quick too.

It can also be a great place to pick up bargains and freebies. In the last day I’ve seen an almost new cordless Dyson Vacuum given away. At the other end of the scale, people sometimes list their actual house that’s for sale. And why not? It’s a great way to let potentially hundreds of thousands more people see the listing.


recycle your mobile phone:

Simply Drop – is the mobile phone recycling service from the Royal Mail, offering some of the highest prices available on the internet.


Making Money from Your Website:

This is possible but it takes a lot of work initially if it’s going to take off. You may build a beautiful website but unfortunately the ‘if you build it they will come’ thing doesn’t work here! Getting listed in the main search engines is important. You will need to get lots of other sites linking to you to rank well in searches – we do have a ‘readers sites’ section on our links page – if you have a site let us know! A great webhost is who sell domains cheaply (free website addresses do not do so well in the search engines), have hosting packages starting at about £2 a month though for about £5 you can have as many domains as you like hosted on the same package – they also have a free website-creator so even if you don’t know html you can build a good site.

There are some good affiliate sites that have many different advertisers to choose from:
