There are two routes to go as a virtual assistant — you can either work under a company for a set rate of pay, or work for yourself and set your own rates. Obviously the latter route is going to be the most lucrative in the long-run, but as it is with any business, it can take a while to grow a base of steady clients. If you're working under a company, there is no guarantee you'll get to answer emails as part of your work. You'll be asked to do whatever tasks the company needs in order for their clients to be taken care of. You can let the company know emails are part of your skillset, but again — no guarantees.

While there are some paid to read emails sites that are legit (I think Inbox Dollars may be the original when it comes to these types of sites), it is not a job. It's just extra money, and when I say extra money, I mean you may earn a couple of cents per email read. I used to do this (along with other little extra money tasks) through Inbox Dollars and trust me, it could not be described as a job. Just a little time waster.
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.
Harvesting cursed energy is a very easy skilling money-making method that allows you to make over 3 million gold per hour while also training your divination skill in the process. This method takes place in the wilderness at the wilderness volcano so be ware of PKers and people trying to kill you. All you need to do is collect the cursed whisps in the crater and deposit them into the center of the crater to gather cursed energy. You will, however, need to sell this energy to other players, not the grand exchange, to make a profit. A more detailed guide can be found in the video linked below.
People are always looking to have their cars washed and detailed. You could be a mobile car washer and detailer without having a permanent location. Reach out to people you know or make some flyers and put it in your neighbors' mailboxes. If you want to get serious about it, prop up a one-page website or give out business cards. You can make money quickly doing this.

If you’ve received gifts you really don’t want – and they’re still in the packages – try returning them. Some retailers will take them back up to a year later.   If you are not sure where the item was purchased, try going online and searching.  If a retailer like Walmart or Target pops up then you can return it there without a receipt and get a gift card.
The basic rundown of this money-making method is that you will be creating mud runes at the altar near the lumber yard. This money-making method is one of the best non PVM related methods in Runescape. You will first need to teleport to the lumber yard using the teleport tablet and run south to the mysterious ruins. Once you enter the altar you must equip the steam battlestaff and cast the magic imbue spell to create the mud runes. A more detailed guide can be found in the video linked below. Using this method, you can easily get upwards of 7 million gold per hour with relatively low stats.
  If you plan on gathering the gold yourself by playing on multiple accounts figure out what is it that you will be doing that will make you the most gold and decide how many accounts will you be using. You can check out our money making methods if you are looking for ideas on what you could do on multiple accounts. If you are going to bot check out How to bot in RuneScape to get more details. If you choose PKing you will have to get an account that is good for this activity and be very good at it to make consistent profit. You will most likely have to do risk fights. If you chose staking, you must have the correct accounts for this activity, as well as a lot of RS gold to have a decent bankroll so you don’t get cleaned.
Overall good ideas, but we need to define the idea of ‘fast 100 bucks. Swagbucks is pretty slow as an income resource and it would take a while, not to mention selling stock photos is not something you do in 2 days. I tried this 4 years ago with my close to pro’ photos and it took days to set up a small portfolio there with some outstanding work and yet made no sells.
It occurred to me that you’re probably interested in growing your blog. I might be able to help. I’ve done video editing (http://www.fakesamplesite.com) and PowerPoint design (http://www.anotherfakesite.com). Imagine doing a great video on using virtual assistants, then distributing it through your newsletter. I could do one for you in about 2 days if you’re interested.

If you’re going to have a garage sale, the only way for it to be successful is to be organized. Make sure you sort through your items carefully and label them with prices. Many people are too bashful to ask what the price of an item is, so if they are unsure, they might walk away. Also, check to see that everything you sell is clean, washed, and tidy. Clothes that are pressed and hung up on a line will sell much faster than a pile of clothes in a box. You should also advertise your sale with big, bright signs that have large letters and are easy to read. Also, place an ad on Craigslist.com with great pictures of your products. This will act as a “sneak peek” to those who love frequenting garage sales.
I live in a remote area in Ky. I have no landline or high speed internet available, only satellite internet. I would love to work, but I can only work from home. I cannot find a real job, only a 100 % commission sales job. I don’t want to waste my time and internet on that. Any ideas. I recently graduated AAS business administration/management, 3.9 GPA. I thought when I got started that it would give me a variety of job skills, but can’t find a job that allows satellite internet and no landline.
They don’t even try to hide the reason they cut you off. They flat out told me that they cut me off because I did not respond to any of the offers. They had never said I had to respond to anything, only that I had to read them. I put in a lot of time for pennies and got ripped off. They said I would have to buy something from one of their offers to continue reading emails for them.
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.
Use your credit card’s cash advance feature. Some credit cards will allow you to withdraw a certain amount of cash by using it at an ATM. This can help you come up with cash in a hurry. However, the interest rates on cash advances are usually much higher than the credit card’s usual interest rate, meaning that you will eventually have to pay more.[24]
