Earn Some Fast Cash Online Using Easy Methods

I have seen various pages across the Internet which have published pages on 'how to make quick money online'. Rarely are they 'fast' or 'easy'. Usually the 'easy money' methods take a lot of hard work and takes a helluva lot of time for you to see results or earn money. So how can they be 'easy and quick ways to make money online'?

This page is dedicated to the same - how to make quick money online. There might be thousands and thousands of other related pages, but the money making methods mentioned here are really easy to carry out. I will not say that they do not need hard work, because they do! But I guarantee you won't have to wait for months to earn your first cent online.

Furthermore, these quick-money methods have been implemented successfully by me to earn some extra pocket money. If you feel some extra dollars are all you need to reach your monthly online income target, then you can go for some of these methods to earn that fast cash.

Please note that the amount of money you make using these money making methodologies depends on the effort you make. You will be able to see some quick cash without much effort, but if you are aiming 'big' then you might have to put in a lot of hard work.

How to Use Fiverr Video

"How to Make Quick Money" Method #1 - Use!

I recently stumbled across this fabulous money-making site called where you can offer your services for 5 dollars. Yes, only $5 but think of it this way - if you have some talent which many people could make use of (for example, hub making or squidoo lensmaking skills) - then you can make many quick 5 dollars in a single day by working for several people. All you have to do is publish a neat hub (not too lengthy) and you're done with the 'gig'!

I see many people on Fiverr offering really easy services - like for example - creating a Squidoo lens with 8 modules (one text module with 100-200 words along with other modules which hardly require any text like amazon and ebay). If you have been making Squidoo lenses, you must be already aware how easy this can be!

There are some others who are offering their services for cheap at Fiverr. If you feel that any particular task is easy for you and which might come in handy for many others, then 'start a gig'.

The response you get will depend on your gig. So post something that people are actually looking for and which they think is a steal for $5. Be as clear as possible of what you are offering in your gig description.

You will get paid directly to your PayPal account once you finish off your task. Processing will take a few days and then you can withdraw the cash to your PayPal account. Note that Fiverr keeps $1 which doesn't exactly make you very happy. But oh well, it's their business afterall! :-)

How to Use Amazon Turk Video

"How to Make Quick Money" Method #2 - Try Amazon Turk!

Amazon Turk HITs (Human Intelligence Tasks) are very VERY easy to do. They require minimum effort and you can finish them off in a matter of minutes or in some cases - seconds even. I have earned around $10 in a single day by doing various tasks on Amazon Turk.

The way to earn the most possible income on Amazon Turk is by looking out for tasks or HITs that you are particularly interested in. If you are good at writing articles, then you can look for writing projects and finish them off those tasks easily. There are many crowd sourcing websites out there but none of them offer as many tasks as Amazon Turk. Trust me, I have checked them all! There are a variety of HITs or tasks to choose from on Amazon Turk.

Agreed, that you don't earn much from a task - just a few cents. But if you do a number of HITs per day, you can earn some quick money online using Amazon Turk with absolutely no effort and zero investment.

Your Amazon Turk payment is sent as part of your Amazon gift certificate. You can even opt to send the money to your bank account but I guess this option is only valid for some countries.  

How to Use Hubpages Video

"How to Make Quick Money" Method #3 - Use Hubpages!

All you need is a Google AdSense account and some writing skills to see those few cents pouring into your AdSense account. The key here is to write hubs on topics that people would want to read. Try the Google Keyword Tool to see how popular a particular niche is.

If you haven't seen any money till now using Hubpages then you might not be writing what people actually want to read. It's also necessary to know a little about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to increase visibility of your pages. Once you know how to drive traffic to your hubs, things will only get easier. You can publish more and more hubs over the years, and a time will come when you can sit back, relax and still enjoy the fruits of your hard work.

I say this method is "quick" because you can see your first cent online with effective marketing (try the forums or post your hub link to directories/blogs/lenses) in a matter of days after publishing your hub on a popular topic. When I say "try the forums", I mean you should get into healthy debates to make your presence felt on Hubpages. You should NOT spam the Hubpages Forums with your hub links because the forums are just mainly meant for healthy interaction.

Just a quick introductory post will be great and the friendly crowd on Hubpages are sure to take a peek at your hubs to see what you have written. It would help if you have some prior experience in writing and SEO skills. Publish your first hub now and see if the platform works for you!

In addition to Hubpages, you can even take part in other AdSense revenue sharing sites.

"How to Make Quick Money" Method #4 - Sell Articles

If you are good at writing, why not try selling some articles. You can sell articles at Constant Content, but you have to be a really good writer to get your articles approved over there! I would suggest selling off your articles at forums like DigitalPoint and WickedFire. Whenever I am in need of some extra cash (or when I want to reach a particular target set in mind), I get the required money by selling off article packs at the forums.

This is a really quick way to make money online because you can finish off article packs in a day and then sell them off for let's say $5 for each article. Zero investment, and some good income!

You need to be careful while selling off articles though. Make sure not to make any grammatical mistakes! First impression is surely the best impression. If you make a very good first impression, then chances are that you will earn some dedicated buyers -- good for a future business in case you have that in mind!

I have attracted some dedicated buyers to whom I email whenever I release a new article pack. Thanks to the forums, I have been able to sell all the article packs I have written so far. Make sure, you write articles on popular topics!

I have also tried writing PLR Packs. Though not as successful as writing exclusive article packs for people, writing PLR packs can prove beneficial for some. PLR article packs are sets of articles which you can use on your website - they are NOT exclusive to you and many other people might have already bought the article from the writer to use it for their sites as well. PLR article packs come cheap which is why many people tend to buy them and modify them later on according to what they have in mind.

If you are planning on writing PLR Packs, then I would totally recommend reading Tiffany Dow's PLR ATM. Apart from providing strategies on how to make good money using PLR packs, she also offers a wide range of popular topics which people have been requesting to her to write articles about. A priceless list I must say!

"How to Make Quick Money Online" Method #5 - Provide Your Services to Others!

I recently started using It is a pretty good site if you are looking towards doing some work online. The pay is quite good too. You will have to place a bid on a project and see if you qualify for the job. Usually employers tend to pick those who fit their budget so don't go too high with your price!

There are many other sites like Elance but I feel they are not as good. There are loads of jobs available, so you can keep applying till something clicks. You get paid for your work via PayPal so that's a plus!

The good thing about using such online sites to earn quick money is that you don't have to wait for someone to offer you a job. You take an active part in showing your interest and you also get to participate in one or more tasks at a time at Elance.

      If you want to make more money on mturk, get some qualifications for more advanced writing or transcription. I did the few cent ones to get my number of approvals up, but I regularly do HITs that pay 5-10 each. I had to work to get there, but it's been profitable for me.

      @simeonvisser - Hubpages is indeed very dear to all of us. Wouldn't even dream of tarnishing its image. Thanks again for commenting! :)

      @divacratus: Fair enough, I can see that you would not encourage unethical behaviour from the rest of your hub but it is good to clarify it for new people. In particular because HubPages is very dear to all of us haha!

      Sameerk - Thank you! :)

      Dahoglund - Definitely! You should look into some more (other than the ones mentioned here). Find out new techniques and methods to make some quick money online. I'm still learning :)

      Simeonvisser - Thank you for the constructive critism. I did not mean "try the forums" in a "spammy" way. I have rectified the mistake. What I meant is you can market YOURSELF (not the hubs) by interacting on the forums -- make your presence felt! :) If you leave behind interesting comments on forum posts, you are sure to earn more readers and followers.

      Ok, I really think you've written a great article but the following is incorrect, regarding quick money on HubPages:

      "because you can see your first cent online with effective marketing (try the forums) in a matter of days after publishing your hub on a popular topic."

      You're not supposed to use the forums for hub spam or non-natural advertisement clicks. Keep the information real please, this could get new Hubbers into trouble if you encourage them to do this.
