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.

Great message, Jeff. When I look at big goals, or even incremental goals, I like to break them down into bite size bits. Earning $100,000 a year seems difficult in many situations, but it seems easier when you break it down to $8,350 a month, or roughly $280 a day. Sure, that is aggressive for many salaries, but there are many ways to fill the gaps with side income, owning a small business, consulting, freelance work, etc. The same concept works for any number or goal you want to reach. Find out where you are, and what it will take to reach the next step. It’s much more attainable when you make incremental goals.


There are a few different ways to make a quick $100. If you have anything of value that you can stand to get rid of, like a smartphone or a piece of jewelry, you may be able to sell it at a pawn shop for $100 or more. However, keep in mind that you’ll get a lot less than the retail value! You can also try making money online by taking surveys, but it can take time to get your payout. Another good option is to do a few odd jobs throughout the day that pay relatively well, like dog walking, yardwork, or babysitting.
 I just pulled in $500 the other day by signing up for an American Express card for my wife, and a Chase Ink card for my business. I’m planning a trip and we are paying for it all by using the sign-up offers. There are also no annual fees on these cards. So I recommend taking advantage of a few signups offers and you’ll easily make $100 (if you qualify).
Do you like surveys? You may have tried other survey sites in the past, but if you’re someone who spends a lot of time doing surveys, you’ll definitely want to consider this. Each survey is catered to your personal interests, and who you are, so it’s not like you’re not going to not get these different items given to you. In fact, you’ll be able to easily, and without fail, get the fun experiences that you need, and anything that you feel will work for you.
Get-rich-quick schemes and fad weight-loss diets are naturally popular because they satisfy the id while also attending to the super-ego. The ego's job is complete when it sees something like this. The appeal of "fast'' stems from the innate desire for instant gratification, so beware of what seems too good to be true (they often are) when you're looking to make money quickly. Be wary. Listen to the conversation deep within the confines of your mind and do your best to tame the proverbial beasts.
It can rip its members only through the high barrier payment requirement. I should learn this lesson and let all my followers know about this too.  If you have already registered into this website, don’t waste your time and watch your balance grow. They can choose not to pay you without any notice, not a single email to tell you what happened and why. Because they have no good reason that can be told to you.
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.
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! 🙂

Quick money also require work and effort. Well that in people minds perpetuates the image that there are no shortcuts. Especially when it comes to money which can not be easily and quickly earn unless you win on lottery. Even blogging is not so simple, you need a lot of time devote to writing content that will be valuable to users, positioning, etc.
The term “virtual assistant” is very broad because people in this line of work often do many different tasks for their clients. And yes, answering emails is just one of many services virtual assistants specialize in. There is no shortage of busy business owners and also bloggers who end up with more emails than they can possibly read and respond to in a day's time, and this is where a virtual assistant can be a lifesaver.
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.
Joined OpinionOutpost I answer surveys and win prizes. This most trusted voice in the survey industry also gives out $10,000 every month to its participants. Two lucky winners get $1,000 each, rest of the prize money is distributed among other active members. your name may never come up, but by just being part of the Neilson world, which shapes tomorrow’s industries, is a great sense of accomplishment.
