Okay, you can consider this the quick start version of the article. Just for you, I’m going to summarise the five most effective ways of how to make money online fast. Like, right now…
Freelancing is the easiest business for you to start on the internet. You can get started, right now, and head out to start making $15-$20 an hour as an entry level freelancer simply by signing up to a site like UpWork or Freelancer.
You can make money this way if you’ve got skills in:
- Writing: Copywriting, Journalism, Blogging or Ghostwriting
- Design: Graphic design, illustration, WordPress Themes
- SEO: All aspects of it
- Programming And Development: PHP, App Development and everything in between.
You can set up a WordPress blog and mailing list in very little time at all. And for completely free if you keep it WordPress hosted and use a beginner MailChimp membership.
For example, Jeff Goins learned a new skill, set up a new blog and made his first sale with 48 hours (without using any of his current influence). It might only have been $9.99, but if you can do that in two days, imagine what you could earn in two months?
#3: Selling Your Own Stuff
Selling your own stuff takes absolutely no time at all when you have sites like eBay, Craigslist and GumTree at your disposal.
You can have an account created and your product online in a matter of minutes. In fact Ramit Sethi outlines how to go from zero to sale in less than 37 minutes in this guide right here.
#4: Surveys And Research
This isn’t a lucrative way to make money online, but it is almost instant.
If you sign up to a site like Swagbucks, you can start earning points and dollars for completing surveys and watching videos in less than five minutes.
Spend a couple of hours here and you could be looking at being $10-$15 richer for doing not much hard work at all.

#5: Questions And Advice
Like the above, you’re not going to make millions doing this. But you can start earning in a matter of minutes by using sites like KGB, where you can get $0.25 just for answering questions about a chosen topic.
You can easily rack up a decent amount of money by answering 15-20 questions in a day.
