4 Ways to Make Extra Cash with Your Tech in 2018

The New Year is here, and if you’re anything like me, you spent the first few days of 2018 setting goals. After all, a change in the year marks a huge change in your life, and gives you the opportunity to start a fresh – and work to achieving your life-long goals!

One popular New Year’s resolution is to save money. Whether you’re saving for a home, a holiday or just for a rainy day, it doesn’t hurt to have a small lump of cash that you can fall-back on.

But, that cash can’t be saved if you can’t make it!

In this guide, we’ve shared four ways that you can make extra cash with your technology gadgets in 2018. So, if you’ve been gifted a new gadget for Christmas, you might be in luck!

1. Sell old technology that you don’t need

Spotted a 2006 Nintendo DS underneath your bed? Perhaps there’s a computer collecting dust in your apartment, or a laptop that hasn’t been used for years.

Old technology can be traded in for cash, even if it’s a few years old. Simply do a quick Google search of technology recycling businesses, ship your technology off and wait to get paid!

2. Try your hand at online betting

When we talk about making extra cash online, many of us stray away from the thought of using betting sites. However, if you have some spare cash to play with, it’s a fantastic way to earn more money – and have fun, at the same time!

Games through the Betsafe app can be downloaded on your Android phone to play on-the-go. Plus, with a welcome bonus for new customers, there’s no better way to make cash through your tech for the New Year.

3. Start your own blog

Now, when you think of technology, you might not class a blog as being within that remit. Although that is technically true, you can use your tech to create a blog to make extra cash in 2018.

We’ve all heard of the infamous bloggers who’re making six-figure salaries with their blogs. For newbies, don’t expect to make millions when you first get set-up. This one’s more of a long-term solution!

Remember that successful and profitable blogs have a passion behind their site, so make sure that your blog is started for a reason other than to make cash fast.

4. Sell your photographs

Nowadays, the cameras available on our mobile phones allow us to create stunning photos. You’d think that a few simple snaps were taken on a professional DSLR camera… Not an iPhone!

You can take advantage of these incredible cameras by selling your photographs. Head out to your city and snap away, or drive into the country to photograph some of nature’s finest work. Then, tidy up the photos and sell them online.


As you can see, making a bit of extra cash doesn’t have to be a struggle. In fact, you can dig out your old (or new!) tech and see the money roll in within a matter of minutes.
