This is one of the fastest way to earn money online. Affiliate marketing is all about referring people to buy products of companies through your affiliate link.

But your channel needs to be monetized first, before you earned Adsense monetizes channels with 1k views and above. It's really a nice way to earn money online but make sure you upload quality content in order to drive traffic.

Get Paid To play Games

All you need to be able to get paid for playing games is, your phone, and Data and Mistplay app. Mistplay is an app which pays people for playing games, it rewards you with gift cards such as, Amazon Gift card, Nitendo gift card.

Play the games in your mixlist or you can also download a game you like on your mixlist, Isn't that pretty cool? you get paid just for playing games you like.

unfortunately mistplay can't pay you in cash, only through gift cards, You'll be rewarded a gift card for each game played in the mixlist.

Sell your old stuffs

You probably might be thinking how you can sell your old stuff online. Well eBay is a great site for this, instead of allowing those old college textbook, clothes, shoes, phone, bike,wrist watch stay without use and end up spoiling, Why don't you just sell it on eBay?

Firstly, you need an eBay store, open your account and store where you goods will be sold, after opening your online eBay store, Upload the image of what you want to sell, with descriptions and price, if it's a shoe make sure you provide the shoe size.

Take note, old stuffs shouldn't be Costly, it should be lower than the price you bought it, and prepare to ship or transport the product, you are responsible to deliver the product to the buyer.

Sell Your Art and Craft works on Etsy

Etsy is a site where craft and art works are been sold, if you have any piece of drawing or painting, you can upload it and interested client will order for it. So if you have a special craft or art skills don't waste it, make money with it!

Just like eBay you need an etsy store in other to sell your works. Your Expertise is also needed here, once you are well known for amazing art works by client, you can earn lots of money, make sure that your crafts aren't costly sell them at an affordable price to get a lot of customer, if yours is cheaper than other craftsmen people would like to go for yours.
