We’ve all been there once or even many times. Whether you’re trying to get that last $50 for rent by the weekend or saving up for something bigger, there are a couple of things you can do right now to earn money fast on the Internet.
Making money online is now rampant. Some of them take a few weeks and a little effort; others are almost instantaneous windfalls. If you get a mix going, you can have a steady stream of income for yourself.
We can’t all be that lucky. But, if you have an idea or a concept, there may be a way to gain help from the crowdfunding community – and get paid for doing it. You can place your project idea on Kickstarter and people who will love to help and work together with you will contact you.
Did you have a skill that works well in the professional world? Good at editing, design, or something similar? Sell your skills for your own price, and set your own work level.
$5 for your effort might not seem like much, but imagine it multiplied. Use your imagination, put your skill and start making huge money on Fiverr.
4. Online surveys
Online surveys are the easiest way to make money fast. Just fill in a questionnaire and wait for the money to roll in. While it may take a few surveys to get a substantial amount of money, you can’t really complain – this is the least effort for most reward.
5. Paid web searches
That’s right, you can get paid to Google! Just add a small plugin from Qmee.com to get paid for spending 15 minutes Googling that book you can’t write remember.
6. Mystery shopping
Like shopping? This one’s for you. For a fee, you go shopping and send the hiring team survey answers, to better improve the stores you shop in. This one is great because normally they pay out more than you’d spend, or they reimburse your purchase. This one ranges from McDonalds, to department stores and even to government departments.
7. Create stock photos
Got a camera? Have an eye for good-looking photos? You can sell them as stock photos for other people to use for their projects, such as book covers. You don’t get paid for each download or use, but you get paid to sell it.
Similar to Elance or Fiverr, this one takes the idea of doing something – anything – that you’re good at, and making money off it. Sell cute teddies on Pinterest, make comic books for people on Deviantart, it’s really only limited by your skills and imagination.
9. Sell on eBay
Have a heap of junk lying around the house? Sell it! The smaller and more obscure the item, the more it usually sells for.
10. Sell your story
Run out of other options? You can sell your story. Whether it’s the true story of the horrible boarding school your parents forced you into or the made-up story of the ghost that tapped you on the shoulder, you can sell almost anything on the internet. Just give it a whirl! Now if you had no idea where to start, give one or even a few of these ideas a try and you could soon be well on your way to earning some good money from working online.
