    What is a good way for a college kid to make money online? I am willing to put in the effort!

    I just want to know what online ways is there to make an easy and fast income. I want legit ways too none of these scams that are being offered online or survey ones that takes years to get a pay out. Have any of you been able to come across some legit money making sites?

    If you are interested in writing and other freelance work, try oDesk.com. It takes a little effort to build your reputation, but you can start earning money quickly if you establish a solid client base.

    You can also apply to Crowdsource.com. If you follow the writing rules and have some time to dedicate, you can make a decent amount of spending money.

    Just like Maxine Pase said, oDesk and Crowdsource, but check out Fiverr if you haven't already done so. Easy and fast income? Most things I've come across you need time to see significant results...so I'd love to hear how others answer this question. Quickest way I've found was really through Fiverr, it's getting pretty competitive on there now so the problem really is creating a gig that people want, but once you've created that gig, you're set!

    Opinion Outpost is a survey based website. It doesn't take me long to cash out. It does depend on how many surveys you qualify for and you most likely won't make a lot of money but this website is legit and I've been paid by them via PayPal. A little goes a long way sometimes and they've definitely saved my behind in the past.

    Swagbucks, it'll take time but you can earn by watching tv, doing surveys, etc., easy stuff. It's legit and you get paid via PayPal.

    I created a hub on a browser based game called Marketglory, so you can check that out too.

    But with the research that I've done personally, the general consensus is to create your own niche website and go that route/the affiliate marketing route. It takes time to build and a lot of effort but it can be very financially rewarding.

    Hope this helps smile

    When I was in college, I worked as a waitress.  It was a fun job and I met lots of cool people.  I also liked making the money right there and then.  I saved up hundreds of dollars.  Waitressing is not an easy job, but it is a good job for the time being.  I recommend you start somewhere like Applebee's and stay away from the high class, rich restaurants.  It's more fun at Applebee's.

    There is no way, that I am aware of, that makes you fast money on-line.  This will not give you a good start in your career either.  You will want to focus on that aspect intstead of the quick and easy way.  In your Junior year you will be looked at by many prospective employers.  They to build your reputaion by getting a job in your chosen field of study.  You might even have privy to someone who you can do an internship with.  My daughter did that and she is still at the same company and she is now in a senior management position.  Look to your future, right now, in the present.
