A very well-researched article! Where I live, a quick and easy way to make cash is to teach home tuition to primary schools children. Teachers here aren’t that good so parents are always eager to get children extra help. And parents don’t even care if you have a relevant degree or not. You just need to read the child’s textbook and repeat everything the teacher taught at school and make the kid do his or her homework. How simple for us and how sad for the education system 🙂
But, I also like the fact that there is so much variety. With other sites, I’ve noticed that they tend to take out that variety after a while, which creates the problem of people not really wanting to work with them. But, the cool thing about being able to get paid for reading email, is the fact that I am able to get money doing things that I already do, and that’s what I love about it.
The good news is that once you get started, it becomes easier to find more opportunities. Many of these companies add you to their database so they can invite you to more studies when they become available. Of course, you always have the right to accept or deny any invitation. You are never required to participate in any study that you don’t want to.
Also called “email processing,” these get-paid-to-send-emails jobs sound like an easy way to make cash — but unfortunately, basically all of them are scams. Typically, users must pay a fee (usually $25 – $150) to create an account. These companies then either ask you to pay more money to access additional services, or the work is nothing like it is described before signup. Many “email processing” jobs are pyramid schemes, meaning that you will have to convince other people to sign up and pay the registration fee in order for you to get paid. Now, they are on the bottom of the pyramid and you have moved up.
Thanks to the internet, you can earn money simply by opening emails. Numerous websites provide the chance to make money by reading sponsored messages from companies. Earning money on these websites won’t make you rich, but it is a simple way to put a little extra money in your pocket with hardly any work. Members of these sites simply sign up to receive emails, and earn a little cash by opening them — that’s it!
The original "Make Money Fast" letter was written around 1988 by a person who used the name Dave Rhodes. Biographical details are not certain, and it is not clear if this was even the person's actual name. The letter encouraged readers of the email to forward one dollar in cash to a list of people provided in the text, and to add their own name and address to the bottom of the list after deleting the name and address at the top.[1] Using the theory behind pyramid schemes, the resulting chain of money flowing back and forth would supposedly deliver a reward of thousands of dollars to the ones participating in the chain, as copies of their chain spread and more and more people sent one dollar to their address.
Use ClickFunnels to build a free-plus-shipping offer. Create a low-ticket front-end offer that will draw in the customers. On the next step of the funnel, hit them with your core offer. After that? An upsell. Maybe a down-sell if they don't take that. Maybe even a high-ticket up-sell at the very end. Once you get the hang of sales funnels, the sky really is the limit.
Hi Helena, You might also want to spend some time on Anna’s site checking out all the different categories. She has lots of great information and ideas. One thing she has said is that you can look for jobs on some jobs sites. I have been looking on Indeed for jobs and found two yesterday. I was contacted by both of them very shortly after filling out applications and I am going through the hiring process for both. One thing though I have found with Indeed is that you really have to spend time searching to find the jobs. In other words don’t just think “work from home” or “work at home.” Try different job names you might be interested in like customer service, email support, etc. Sometimes you find better jobs this way. Good luck! 🙂
While you are waiting for someone to respond, head to your closet and see what clothes you no longer wear. Take these clothes to a store like Plato’s Closet, where they will sort through items and give you cash on the spot. Remember, many secondhand stores also take shoes, purses, and jewelry. When you bring your items, make sure they are clean and organized. If you go to Plato’s closet and dump out wrinkly clothes on the counter, they will not be impressed. If you go in there with ironed clothes that are all sitting neatly on hangers, you will have a much better chance of selling them.

Krystal, I understand what you are saying, but I have made money selling pictures online, and I am no pro. I can get great pictures of wildlife, tropical landscapes, and many things that other photographers may not be able to get. Should I not do this, so that other photographers can? I am also trying to pay bills and run a household. It seems that raising prices could eliminate some of your future clients. I occasionally get calls because someone can’t or won’t pay $250-$500 for someone to take pictures of their family on the beach. I also give them the CD of all of their photo’s, which many photographers won’t do.

Thanks for sharing. Since you’re short on time, go online right away. Use groups on social media and public classifieds to sell everything you don’t need (bonus: you’re decluttering your home and getting a head start on spring cleaning). If you take clear photos and can write a few lines of fetching the copy, you could have hundreds or even thousands of dollars’ worth of offers by the end of the day.go to Home Jobs by Mom.
BONUS! Let’s say you provide a buyer on Fiverr with the service today… if that buyer decides in a week from now that they want their money back, Fiverr will give it to them! Yes! This mean Fiverr is going out of their way to encourage buyers to just steal services from you. Imagine if you perform a task for somebody today and then in a week or two you get notified that the buyer changed their mind… you’ll be sitting there thinking, “What the hell? The buyer got what they wanted out of my on DAY 1 and now you’re telling me I did the work for FREE?”
Richard, from what I understand (I have been a member for 7-8 years and have gotten many many checks from them), they don’t drop you for not buying something, but they do drop you for inactivity after 30 days. However, by simply clicking on a link in one of their paid emails, once a month, you can stay active. That’s what I do whenever I don’t have time to spend on the site so I can make sure my account stays active.

Become a babysitter if you are good with children. There are websites that will connect you with people who need a babysitter. To get hired by people who do not know you, it will help to pass a CPR class, or to have a special talent or expertise for entertaining children. However, you might be able to make money more quickly just by babysitting for people you know, or by having friends refer you to others who need a babysitter.[14]
