Making money online is easy. Believe me. You can turn anything into cash if you have a plan, you stay focused and you're persistent. However, things are just a little easier if you make a little investment first. You need to make that money work for you.

Let's take things slowly. Before you're ready to invest three figures into an idea that you know is going to pop, I suggest that we begin with just £10. A tenner is all you need to get you on your way towards £100, and then some.

I'm going to run through 30 different ways you can turn just £10 into £100. Some will be quicker than others. Some require more skill than others. Some are more ethical than others. I've tried enough to know that they work. For some, applying knowledge from posts like this will also help you to get there faster.

The most that will be needed for any of these will be a computer, smartphone and internet access. Nearly all will require you to repeat a process and invest the profit until you make it to £100.


Take your choice from the following:

  1. Enter a charity shop and find some bargains to resell on eBay. Reinvest profits until that money builds up.


  1. Everyone is an expert at something. For example, I might coach someone on Amazon selling. Market your services online and sell that knowledge over the phone by the hour. Stick £10 credit on a pay-as-you-go sim to get standard.


  1. Buy a domain and connect it to a free hosting account. Promote a software or service affiliate offer to a highly targeted audience.


  1. Open a Coinbase account and invest in cryptocurrency. Keep your eye on fast-growing coins and keep moving that money until it's healthy.


  1. Sign up for a free bet and use a tipster to matched bet. Keep going until you can afford a Heads & Heads subscription.


  1. Commission a short story as an ebook on Kindle Publishing.


  1. Create a Pinterest account promoting affiliate offers. Buy a board boosting gig on People Per Hour to promote it.


  1. Buy a mask and create a Fiverr gig based around you wearing it. (Honestly, this is a winner).


  1. Buy cheap craft materials from eBay (probably also listed on Ali Express) and sell your creations on Etsy.


  1. Hand register a cold, brandable .com domain and sell it on Flippa. Alternatively, go for some exact match .co.uks on Domain Lore.


  1. Send an elaborate CV to an employer. Regardless of the response, sell the story to Talk to the Press.


  1. Do some thrifting at a car boot sale and sell the goods on eBay and Gumtree.


  1. Buy cheap music production software and sell self-made tracks on Bandcamp.


  1. Buy petrol and go collect boot sale job lot listings from Freecycle. Sell the goods on eBay or elsewhere.


  1. Buy a set of plastic cups, Mod Podge and glitter. Sell your creations is sets of 6 for £10 each. (I’ve got a great domain to accompany this if you want to expand this idea).


  1. Buy eggs. Use the egg boxes as sound-proofing material for your new job as a voice actor.


  1. Set up a free site for print-on-demand merchandise, designed by yourself on Canva. Spend the money on Facebook advertising to a highly targeted niche.


  1. Enter a low traffic payment required competition and sell your prize on. (Good luck.)


  1. Buy Fiverr gigs reviews on a competitor site to boost your gigs, and kick-start micro freelance work.


  1. Buy underwear. Wear it. Sell it on here with £10 on top of the cost price.


  1. Commission a caricature of a celebrity. Sell images using a print on demand service.


  1. Set up a brand new Instagram, populate it with content, then buy followers and sign up for a social monetisation website.


  1. Buy a couple of supplies for your new life as an OnlyFans content creator. Use your imagination.


  1. Create a JVZoo account and create a low-cost landing page. Drive people to a targeted affiliate product or service.


  1. Go to TK Maxx and search for a couple of underpriced items to resell on eBay or Amazon. Reinvest the money and repeat.


  1. Snipe underpriced auctions on eBay. Reinvest profits in further snipes until you have big boy funds.


  1. List services on UpWork and outsource the tasks on anothe gig-based freelancer hub.


  1. Make a Fiverr gig based around you buying scratch cards and sharing the winnings with the buyer. (Please tell me if you pull this off).
