Making cash fast online is an idea which appeals to pretty much anyone who has a computer.
Many people start doing this on a part-time (or even less) basis. And some end up being able to quit their day jobs and work from home on their computers. Whether you’re just looking for a little extra spending money or have a more long-term goal of working from home, the internet offers a viable source of income and some methods allow you to start earning right away.
There are many ways to make cash fast online – these are just a few common ones: NOTE, you have to be prepared to put some leg work into it, nothing comes for free!
1. Take part in “Get-Paid-To” Websites:
Hundreds of websites pay you to read emails, do surveys, sign up for trial subscriptions and surf the web. And the ones that pay you to complete offers are worth taking a look at because they usually include affiliate programs that allow you to earn recurring commissions. I recently got my 18 year daughter doing this, while off from her college holidays.
The advantage of get-paid-to websites is that you don’t need your own website or any skills. The downside is that it might be harder to find the legitimate sites through all the scams. Scam.com is a great forum to visit and find out which of these websites actually do pay their members.
Many Web 2.0 or social media websites will also pay you to participate in their communities. How much you earn depends on how much your submitted article, video or image is viewed.
2. Put your expertise to work in a virtual job:
Online jobs in the today’s economy include data entry, virtual assistants, gold farmers, online coaching/consulting and support for open source software. A good example to take a look at are like Mini consultation networks like Bitwine. I came across Bitwine from a friend I made online on facebook, now I’m not really into card reading and stuff like that, but this website goes to show that you can make money and build a community from what you love doing.
Another site is Ether. From what I can see it’s like upwork maybe smaller I’m not quite sure. But it allows you to sell your skill per hour online, but through a consultation setup, which was interesting to me. It lets you easily set up shop and offer advice on specific topics through the web.
As far as I can see Esther is based predominately in the US.
Most of these virtual jobs involve direct communication through electronic mediums like internet telephony, instant messengers and emails. This of course means that all you need to get started is a computer with a steady internet connection.
If you happen to be an expert in a certain subject, you can offer consultation through websites like Jyve or Just Answers. Or you could also participate in online competitions in areas like writing, web design, photography, or more.
3. Set up your own blog or website:
You can either sell your own products/services, promote affiliate products or earn money from the ads which others display on your site. There is such a variety of money making blogs. You just need to pick a model that fits your interests, schedule and skills.
Websites can easily help you to generate passive income as well. These can range from e-commerce websites, social communities and information portals to basic landing or squeeze pages for affiliate programs.
4. Get into affiliate marketing:
Affiliate marketing involves promoting certain products or services and earning commissions whenever someone buys them from you. If done correctly, affiliate marketing is one of the most powerful ways to make money from the web. Commission Junction and ClickBank are two of the biggest affiliate marketplaces you can use if you decide to give this a try.
I wrote a book on this subject, showing you how you could build a great side hustle or full time business with Affiliate Marketing
