3 of the fastest ways to make money online
Your ability to make money online will to some extent depend on the skills and experience that you have, as well as the time that you can dedicate to generating more cash. However, whatever your skill set and availability there are 3 ways that you can make money online – starting right now.
- Take online surveys
If you sign up for a surveys website then you’ll regularly be sent surveys that ask for details of your experiences and your opinions. In return for providing that information you can earn points that can be tallied up and then exchanged. You might be able to exchange these points for cash or you could take them in credits or high street vouchers. Either way, if you’re looking for a simple and fast option for making money online right now surveys are a great choice.
- Sell your skills
Everyone has some skills. You might be handy with a hammer or you could be great at photo retouching. Your skills might be more focused on fixing bikes or producing great written content. Or you might be able to connect up business people or students who are looking for an introduction or a connection. There is a way to monetise most skills in life, from the practical through to the creative. And, thanks to the internet, you have a ready-made audience to advertise those skills to. If you’re confident that you can sell your skills as an individual then set up your own website – this can be a 5 minute job with most web development platforms now. Alternatively, you can sign up for jobs sites like Fiverr and sell what you can do to a ready-made audience of buyers.
- Sell your possessions
Obviously you can’t sell all your possessions but you might be surprised by how much of what you own – but perhaps don’t want anymore – has value to someone else. The online world offers a wealth of opportunities for making quick cash by selling items, from auction sites like eBay through to neighbourhood based apps like Schpock, which is essentially an online car boot sale. Don’t exclude anything from your selling efforts either – old books, DVDs, old mobile phones, shoes, furniture, kid’s toys and artwork all have the potential to bring in some cash without you ever leaving the house.
