5 Fast and Easy Ways to Make Money Online

  1. Make Money by Writing Articles – the high demand for original content on the internet makes this venture one of the easiest and lucrative opportunities.

    If you are able to generate fresh content on a regular basis then this might just be for you. You can also write for community websites like HubPages (sign up here), Squidoo and Zujava, or you can join CloudCrowd (free with high quality checks & you need a Facebook account).

    All these sites offer free membership.

  2. Make Money with a Video Sharing Site – Video sharing is becoming a booming industry with sites like Youtube raking in millions every year.

    Unfortunately, this has triggered a spurt of online video sharing sites to pop up which has made the market a bit harder. However, if you want to stand out of the crowd then try a site that shares video content for a niche market.

  3. Make Money with a Niche Forum – While on the topic of niche markets, a niche forum is a great way to create a community of people with the same interests.

    It appeals to millions of people who share the same mindset and interests. As the forum owner, you could advertise to mailing list and earn an income from it.

  4. Make Money with Blogs – search engines are drawn to blogs like moths to flames. This means that if you can create a blog with original content which is constantly updated then you will have a good Google ranking with millions of visitors each month. This could translate to good money if the blog is monetized.

    I have actually received a couple of checks from Google through the Adsense program and it doesn't take that much work. However, a consistent output in terms of blog posts and social media marketing should help boost the bottom line.

  5. Make Money Selling Stock Photos – digital cameras and mobile devices allow users to capture so many images, most of which will not be used. Why not use these photographs to make money? You can do this by becoming a stock photographer. There are many stock photo websites around like, and A quick search on Google will come up with more.

Closing Remarks

These are fast and easy ways to make money online without having to invest too much of your precious time or money. These ideas will help you supplement your cash flow without having to overload your already busy schedule.

    @minababe. Thanks for the comment. It's true that most of these stock photo sites are very hard to get into. However, what I meant by 'fast and easy' is that you don't need to spend too much time to do it and anyone can do it.

    People say you can make good money by uploading your photos on Triond. I still have doubts about it though because many people are complaining that they never make enough on that site. Thanks for the other information.

    You cannot nake "fast and easy" money with stock photography, especially not at any of the agencies you mentioned. If you tried submitting photos shot with a mobile or cheap camera, your application to these sites would be rejected.
