I was inspired to add this one after I talked to the guy who delivered our fridge. We bought a used one from Craigslist, well under the price it was worth, and found someone on Craigslist who hauls large items. As it turns out, he uses his truck on the weekend for delivery services. At $30-$50 a delivery, he's making more than enough to pay for his gas and truck payment for the month.
In most cases, when it’s too good to be true…then it normally is. A good way to check would be to first analyse the site and ensure it is in fact indexed in Google. There is no such thing as “Instant Riches”. I agree with Satrap, if you want to make a lot of money online then you’re going to sacrifice the needed time. Making money online is an art, not a contest.

6. IZEA – IZEA works in addition to a blog or on its own. You get paid to blog, tweet, take photos and take videos. The pay is mostly based on your following, so if you want to make money with your tweets, you’ll need to grow you Twitter following.  Likewise, if you want to make money with blogs, you’ll need substantial blog traffic (more on blogging below).


I look at comments in articles like this and just shake my head. Seriously what's wrong with people these days? It's like everyone has ADD and goes completely off topic or just freaks out like a grandma. Anyway, great article. Some of these things will help me as things are getting very frustrating right now. Thanks for sharing. I really had hoped that people would expand on your ideas in the comments and maybe add other ones as well, but I guess you can't expect too much these days.
If that doesn’t work, remember that you can head to a Pawn Shop. Pawn Shops can give you loans on items you love or cash for items you no longer want. Remember to read the contract of any Pawn Shop you do business with. For example, most of them will claim ownership of your item if you don’t pay the loan back in a few days. If you have a unique item and they aren’t sure what it is, be sure to describe it to them in detail so that you can get the best offer possible.
Dayo, sadly, because of the market size, app related business remain only profitable in a few western countries. I don’t know of any that could be used in Nigeria. That said, you can always put your own twist on things and make something that people in your local area could find useful. Essentially, you create a niche market out of it, and that can be very profitable.
I'm no fan of mowing my lawn, and it's not exactly a large one either. But I do it because I'd rather not pay someone else to do such a simple task. However, there are plenty of people who will gladly pay someone else to mow. And as lawn mowers are collapsible, you can pop it in the trunk and drive around the neighborhoods, offering your services. I spoke to a guy at work who said he made $100 in a few hours by mowing lawns. He used the cash to buy concert tickets, and he said he got a nice tan and a workout!
Fiverr forces people to wait anywhere from 2 weeks to a full month for their measly five bucks. Yes, thousands of people have reported having to wait for their money even though Fiverr GETS PAID INSTANTLY by the person who is buying your service. So, basically you are expected to provide the buyer with your service right away, and Fiverr instantly gets paid by the buyer…. but then Fiverr feels like holding onto your money for weeks.
A credit repairer with the email address (creditbrainiac.repair (AT g*m*a*i*l DOT) com) did a wonderful job on my credit report, never would’ve thought that they could do so much in such a short time period.I must admit that I was skeptical at first because I was told that most credit repair services were only a scam and that no one could repair my credit. However, now I am a firm believer and i am proud to say to anyone that because of credit brainiac’s professional credit repair service, I was able to purchase my first home. There was no way I had the time or knowledge to repair my credit myself. Credit brainiac did exactly what they said they would do and I’ve been able to receive prime interest rates on money i borrow.
First, I'm sorry that you've taken such offense. Let me address each point for you. As I pointed out at the beginning of the article, I asked around friends and family and these were the top 25 answers. At least half of the people I talked to said begging was a legitimate way to make money if you have fallen on hard times. And, I start that section with words to that effect. If you're really, really down on your luck and need money, begging is an option. I put the link to the woman about the kitchen to show that people in far less dire situations are turning to begging, so there is no shame in it. I am not suggesting that if you want a new car you hit the streets to make the payment.

What does that mean for you? It means Nielsen will pay you $50 a year to keep their app on your favorite internet browsing device. The app itself collects statistics on your internet usage anonymously, so you never have to worry about any data being linked to you. And the best part is, the app takes up barely any space and doesn’t slow down your phone or tablet at all!

Thank you for sharing your perspective. I will leave this here if you want to be financially free for life; I used to have most of my investments in stocks and mutual funds. I have been doing some research on cryptocurrency investments, trading and mining, and I came across many reviews online. I found this Crypto expert/miner via his mail address at [cryptojacking.worm (at)gmail com ]
One of the most underrated freelancing sites ever. The site started as a place where you could get paid to do short tasks for just five bucks. Over the years, it has slowly morphed into one of the biggest gig/freelancing sites where you can now charge any amount to do all kinds of stuff for other peoples. Anything from serious stuff like copywriting, translation, voice over social media management to silly stuff like prank calls and everything in between.
If you've seen shows like American Pickers, Storage Wars, or even Cash In The Attic, you know that there are gems out there, hidden in the trash. Most of the time, it really is just garbage. But sometimes, people throw out valuables that they believe are worthless. Dumpster diving can really pay off, if you know what you're looking for. (See also: Turning Trash Into Cash)
If chosen, you could easily start earning hundreds or thousands of dollars for a single post that features a product from big brands like Coach, Expedia, Timex, Puma, and others. @weworethat is a massively popular Instagram account that pulls in over six figures in sponsorships from apparel and accessory companies that want their products featured on her account.
If you think you take high-quality pictures, there’s a chance that you can get paid for it. But don’t limit yourself with just your photography skills, explore other possibilities that enhance your pictures such as editing and composition. Use the best photo editing apps for phones to get the most out of the photos that you take. Try to be original when you’re taking pictures.
You can easily start posting photos of your healthy meals, your workout routines, and anything that might offer inspiration or motivation to followers who want to get in shape. Don’t forget to provide the URL in your bio to your network marketing website or product link, and make sure to include some contact information in case users have questions.
I think Drop shipping is the best way that can help you make money online. It is the only way that allows you to start an online business without investing capital in inventory, warehouse and to buy products individually from a wholesaler and ship them directly to your customer. Moreover, with my drop shipping experience, you will learn key strategies that you won’t learn anywhere else to help your online business grow and thrive.
8×10 takes care of all the printing, shipping, and payments. Artists use the app to generate a listing for a limited edition run of prints, which can also include a signature. The app allows users to choose the price. The app will even generate a mockup of the image hanging on a wall to share on Instagram. The app is free to use — 8×10 earns their living by taking a cut of each sale, so if you don’t sell anything, you don’t pay anything either.
I too have used Fiverr back in the day when I got started, sadly I have to agree on most points you have made. However, I am always extremely cautious to judge or dismiss something as ineffective. There’s always the chance that it didn’t work for the both of us and thousands of other people. But there’s always the chance that it did work, and perhaps still does for thousands more.
Take it seriously. Yes, you’re applying for an online job. Yes, you can do the work in your underwear, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a “real job”. You must treat it as such or they aren’t going to treat you as a serious candidate. You aren’t the only one who wants to work in their underwear. In fact, the competition online is likely higher than it is in your local area.
