The Internet is the new goldmine for those who want to make money and make it quickly. Instead of waiting around for the golden opportunities, people can go online and find the opportunities waiting for them…all you need to do is to sign up. There are plenty of ways you can bring more money into your life, helping to supplement your primary income or to become your primary source of funds.
All from sitting at your computer. Not bad at all.
Writing – You can write articles for a number of companies and get paid for your work. Whether you choose to sign up for a freelancer site (Guru, Elance, iFreelance, etc.) or you choose to sign up directly with writing companies (Demand Studios), you can find plenty of work for a writer.
eBay – When you have items you just don’t need to own anymore, why not sell them to others who might need them. By taking your stuff and posting it on eBay and other sites, you can sell the things you aren’t using anyway.
Paid surveys – Taking paid surveys is a great way to add income to your life, and you don’t need to leave home to do it. Finding reputable sites is the first step, but the rest is simple. Say what you think and collect the checks.
Coaching – People who are trying to do something with their life often need someone to help them along the way. As a coach, you can begin to show people the steps they need to take when they are trying to get a job, start a business, etc. If you’re experienced in a particular field, you can coach others to succeed.
Freelance assisting – Virtual assistants are helping companies around the world with basic tasks. Sign up at sites like oDesk to find out how you can assist someone, via the Internet.
Craigslist – Even though Craigslist has a reputation for many other things, it does have an extensive job listing board where you can find gigs and long term jobs. You can also work with those who post ads on this site and get paid to post the many ads they need posted.
Blogging – Creating your own blog will help you begin to connect with readers and allow you to begin to make money from advertising. You might also want to sign up as an affiliate to help continue to bring in money from your blog, even when you’re not posting.
SEO – If you know about search engine optimization, you can help others improve their website and web presence. By consulting with a company, you can show them what you think they should do and then help them make the changes or suggest to them others who can help them implement the new strategy.
eBooks – If you have something to say, why not write an eBook? This is a simple item to sell, and if you have written it yourself, you don’t have any costs to handle. All you need to do is to promote this book on your website or blog, and encourage others to do the same.
Online storefront – When you already have a business, you might want to take it online as well to boost your profits. Build a small web store that will help those customers who would love to visit your store, if only they were in the same area.
Digital photos – You can post your photos on iStockphoto and other sites in order to have people pay for the right to use them. If you’re an avid photographer, you can begin to create a name for your work too.
Website building – Whether you’re able to build complicated websites, or not, the more that you can help someone else out, the more money you can make. Work on a per project basis to help others get their web presence started online. An added bonus – the more you help others, the more you will learn for your own website.
Site reviews – You can also be paid to do site reviews. This will help to boost the credibility of the site, and the site owners will have ways to show new visitors they’ve come to the right place.
Logo design – If you’re already the person who likes to make things with Photoshop, it’s a good idea to look for ways to create logos for others. Not only are companies looking for artists, but you can also enter contests that can win you cash prizes.
Etsy – When you like to make things by hand, Etsy is the place that wants to help you sell your items. This website encourages those who are crafty to sell their wares for good prices to audiences that appreciate good work. Artfire is another site that can help you sell the things you make.
