There's content all over the Web that includes various money making techniques and strategies, and most claim to be so amazing that you can make money from home, today, fast!

Well, if you read this article and take advantage of all the opportunities listed here, I'm not going to promise you'll make millions. However, you will have a handful of legitimate money making opportunities. I have tried everyone of the approaches listed below, and I'm going to let you know exactly how I've made cash by working online.

1. Make cash using apps for Android & Ios

Recently, I've discovered that the address several apps that can generate cash or at least put a little jingle back in your pocket.

  • Apps like Walmart Savings Catcher, Receipt Hog, and Ibotta let you scan or take pictures of your receipts and gives you either cash or coins. After you build up your coins you can trade them in for gift cards. These apps are really easy to use and you can make money off the money you're already spending anyways.

2. Entry Level Transcription Positions

Yes, it is possible to acquire entry level transcription jobs, work from home, and generate a pretty good income. If you have a high typing speed with high accuracy, then you're in business.

Companies typically pay about 60 cents per audio minute, and you may even transcribe some pretty cool content. I transcribed a few Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders interviews for the show.

I highly suggest owning transcription software and equipment (foot pedal) before beginning. It is possible to get jobs without the pedal, but it's a lot more work.

You should also know that you'll have to put in a little work to score a contract with a company. You'll have to do a test for each company you apply for and you will have to follow each companies format and/or layout.

There are other, quicker ways like which allows you bid against others for transcription assignments. Typically, the pay is less, but it is possible to build your own client base through sites like this.

3. Selling Items

Everyone should be well familiar with sites like eBay, easy, and Craigslist that allow you to sell items online or locally. These can all be very valuable resources if you have the goods to sale.

If you have a passion for writing and/or sharing information with others then starting a blog would probably be a great opportunity for you to start as early as today!

In my opinion, blogging is a lot like Rome. It's not going to be built in a day. I'm a year in, and I have a long way to go. I haven't remained extremely active during my first year, but I've still managed to drudge in a couple dollars.

My main advice to someone who is thinking about staying their own blog is to do it, and don't give up!

5. Telemarketing

Yes, there are jobs online known as virtual call centers that hire people to cold call potential clients and pitch their products or services.

I worked with one of these call centers for a few weeks, and I made decent money. All-in-all, it just wasn't the job for me.

If you're interested, all you need is a headset with a mic and start applying to virtual call centers via Google today!

My suggestion is to find one that does not cold call and avoid scams.

Make Money Gaming

I recently discovered the app Qriket.

Qriket is an app available for Android and ioS where you use "spins" to earn cash!

Prizes vary from spin to spin and can range anywhere from five cents to 1000 dollars.

It is absolutely free, and it's actually pretty fun.

You should definitely download this app today if you don't already have it! If your do, I'd appreciate it if you use my reward code 78459F

You'll get 25 extra spins! I hope you win big!

If you have a desktop you can play Bingo by Ryzing, which is a Facebook game.

It is also totally free, and you can win real cash prizes.

My mom has been playing this game for about 6 months and she's earned about 800 dollars (combining total value of gift cards, prizes, and well cash)
