Easiest Ways to Make Money Online

Can you really make money online or is it myth? Research on the Internet on how to make money online and will find thousands of sites and blogs pitching you info on how you can become the next John Chow or affiliate bigwig. The catch? You must have a lot of time and knowledge and upfront investment before you can start seeing any cash being poured into your Paypal account. Don't worry, there's still hope. There are actually a few really easy ways you can make money online if you know how, and I'm going to tell you how. Just know, that like all online ventures, these methods won't make big money quickly, but can earn you a decent income if you put a little time and effort. These are probably the most easiest and quickest ways of making money online when compared to the most traditionally known methods....


Have you ever heard of the site called Fiverr? Fiverr is a site that let's you post up services that you offer and you charge a fee of five bucks. Fiverr has become immensely popular and there are a lot of people on there raking in some decent doe. Though, it may not make you rich, it can be a excellent resource for pulling in a extra side income. People on Fiverr post up anything from cartooning your face, help with website scripting and programming, assisting in video creation and promotion, and much more. Fiverr is a excellent source for earning some quick catch, especially if you got any skills or knowledge to offer that could be profitable.

Craigslist flipping

My friend has done this and actually does quite well. What is flipping? Well, here is what my friend does. She finds a great deal on a item listed on Craigslist for really cheap--INSANELY cheap, I should say. Then she puts up ads and advertises on party line and usually sells the item for at least double the cost. The trick here is to find items that you know have a lot of potential and value to people, and that will sell. You get this down, and you can make a huge profit. The only trouble is here though, is that it cost some upfront money to get started because you will be buying items for cheap prices obviously, and then flipping them for more value. Excellent money can be made here though, if you know what you're doing and have a bit of money to invest.


Have you ever heard of If not, it's a website where people post ads for jobs for freelancers. Jobs like graphic design work, logo design, data entry, programing, etc. Data entry is one of the easiest ways you can make money online. There are a lot of sites online that post data entry scams up, but with freelancer you get real people needing help with their projects. Another good thing to mention is, just about anybody with a computer can do a data entry job and often, people post listings looking for just starting or new freelancers. Freelancing data entry work can be a excellent way for anybody to make easy money online. And not many freelancing data entry people that make there living doing this on want you to know about it!!


This one here is for the creative types. If you are interested in creating arts, crafts, and handmade goods, then you could make some decent cash by doing so. There are actually quite a few artist and crafters on Etsy that make their complete living selling there handmade goods. So if you are a creative type, and create something handmade, there just may be a market for it and you could make some big bucks. This is one of the easiest ways to make money online if you are creative and willing to delve in and study the etsy market a bit.


Oh no! Not they ebay thing again. Sorry, I had to add Ebay to my list. After all, it is one of the most easiest ways you can make money online. Simply weed through your stuff, check out what's selling well on ebay, ad it, and bam, you've made a sell. (That is, as long as what you have listed isn't dog crap or overly priced)


Write for article sites like Hubpages and Associated Content. This can be a much slower way to earn money then the rest listed above, but you can make some decent cash by doing so if you are dedicated enough and persistent. If you have the ability to write, and enjoy doing so, you can write for sites like Hubpages and earn revenue. The more articles you write and post, the more you can earn. There are quite a few people who make some pretty decent cash by writing hubs, and articles, and there isn't any reason you can't also. Obviously, the more content you write and add, the more you can earn. I would say that this is one the easiest ways you can make money online, if you are dedicated, passionate, persistent, and believe in yourself so you can keep creating good content.

T-shirt Designing

This is another one that requires some creativity, but an excellent way to make some extra cash on the side if you enjoy squeezing out those creative juices. Sites like Redbubble, Zazzle, and Spreadshirt allow you upload your own designs and sell them on products -- the main product being T-shirts. They pay you a small percentage of the sales, but they do all the dirty work. They handle the production, distribution, website, and all you have to do is come up with the catchy designs and start earning money. I've made some decent cash off Redbubble, I have yet to try Zazzle, or Spreadshirt. It is definitely one of the easiest ways I have found to make money online.

Blackhatting Fiverr

It's Fiverr, again. There's another way you can cash out on this site and make some real decent money. Here's what you do... Search on forums, or search on sites like Freelancer, Elance, Hotjobs, etc. and look for people who are posted ads and looking for speciality services and that are offering a decent fee for the job. Go to Fiverr and see if you can hunt down any of these services offered for five dollars, and be the middle man. Turn around and sell these services to person that listed the ad (and is willing to pay the dollars!), pay the Fiverr client offering his service his five bucks, and collect your ninety-five. Another one of the easiest ways to make money online - if you take some time, research, and do it right.

Well, that's it for now. I have found all of the above to be the most easiest ways you can make money online in my own experience. These methods have worked pretty well for me, if you know of any other methods that belong on this list then please post them in the comments below. I hope this was some help to you and wish you good luck on your money making ventures!
