here.20 Scam-Free Ways to Make Money Online Fast
Make money online fast 20 REAL ways people make money online.Cathy is in need of a legitimate way to make money
online fast. She writes in: "I was a nurse for almost 30 years when I became disabled from a car
wreck. I am a very tough person (I'm a redhead!) I went out last October and bought a new PC to
try and make money online, but all I have succeeded in doing is getting further in debt. I know you
know what I mean by all the scams that I fell into.
I have been reading A LOT and trying to learn as much as I can. I have run into conflicting stories,
though. I just don't know where to start. I am not a computer tech, nor that knowledgeable about
how to start. I am NOT asking for a handout; just a helping hand in the right direction.
I'm not expecting to make tons of money today, but ANYTHING to help me get started in the right
direction. I have saved thousands of lives and now I can't even get through the month without
running out of food!"
Cathy has the right attitude - she's not looking for a get-rich-quick scheme, but instead a
legitimate way to make some extra money online.
Having been sucked into some scams myself in the past, I know how difficult it can be to find
realways to make money online fast. Thus, I've compiled this list. Some ways require knowledge
of certain skills, but all these skills can be learned. If you don't know where to start, I suggest
picking one of these ways and learning more about it, then trying it out!
Note: None of the 20 ways listed below contain affiliate links (that is, links that make me money if
you click on them.) This list is for your benefit, not mine. Enjoy!

1. Amazon's Mechanical Turk.
Mechanical Turk is a great way to make some extra cash. You probably won't make much more
than a few dollars an hour, but it's also dead simple to complete many of the tasks. Most tasks
take less than a minute to complete and pay a few pennies. If you do a lot of MTurk, it could add
up to at least some fun spending money. Sign up for free, then complete qualifications to earn
access to higher-paying tasks.
2. Sell stock photos.
iStockPhoto is just one site that allows you to sell stock photos; there are others. Before you
decide to go crazy and upload your whole album, take note of what's selling well and try your
hand at doing something similar. iStockPhoto also works for those who know how to render
images; some of their most popular images were created on a computer! Have three killer stock
photos ready for iStockPhoto's inspection; they will want them when you sign up.
3. Sell stuff on eBay.
Start by selling your own extra stuff. Then, once you get a feel for selling your extra stuff, go doorto-door in nicer neighborhoods in your town. Develop an eye for what will sell and what won't (old
laptops, for instance, could be a gold mine-if you know how to format them to get rid of the

previous owner's personal data.) Sign a contract where you take 25-30% (or more) of the gross
sale. Your customers will be happy to get cash for their old junk, and you'll make some good
money selling other people's stuff. eBay
4. Become a freelance article writer.
It may not pay well, but there is a growing demand for this. Write 200-300 word articles and
submit them to article directories. Potential clients include bloggers, marketers, and small
businesses. You can write articles in a niche in batches and sell them as a package to one or
more clients, or you can offer your services for hire per word or article and let your client give you
direction. A foundation of keyword research is important to succeed at this job (unless you're just
taking direction from a client), but keyword research is learnable.
5. Write articles for magazines or other publications.
If you have a background in journalism, or just a passion for it, you can try your hand at submitting
articles to publications. Don't just randomly fire off articles, however; have a plan and, preferably,
a contact at the publication you wish to submit to. The good news is that there are publications in
pretty much any niche you can think of. To see some publications that are hiring, visit Online
Writing Jobs, PoeWar Freelance Jobs, and Writing.com.
6. Transcribe audio files.
An easy job; doesn't pay well, but also a quick way to make some money. Sign up on eLance
oroDesk to start, and/or advertise your services in entrepreneur forums. Requires good hearing
and a good command of the English language. You may also want to invest in a foot pedal if you
plan to transcribe often. Make sure you know how to transcribe interviews before you start your
first job.
7. Become a virtual assistant (VA).
There are entire books written on how to become a virtual assistant, so this job is definitely worthy
of more research. My advice: Focus on one niche (I just hired Lisa Morosky of VA for Bloggers,
for instance.) Also, reach out to potential customers directly and let them know what you can do
for them instead of hitting up freelance web sites. Finally, you may want to consider resources
such as AssistU, which provides training for up-and-coming virtual assistants.
8. Write articles on eHow.com.
If you understand the basics of keyword research, you can make a good monthly income from
eHow. eHow pays you a percentage of the ad revenue they make from each "How to" article you
create. You can crank out a few articles a day with relative ease. Try this for a month; assuming
your article titles match up with what people are searching for in Google, you can make a
significant income. The great news is that you write your articles once and get paid month after
month. I've seen figures of $100-$150/month for 30 articles. Make money writing for eHow.com.
9. Do some videos to promote affiliate products.
Enjoy making silly videos? Even short, silly videos can sell products online. Find an product worth
promoting that has an affiliate program, then target your video toward potential customers of that
product. In your video summary on YouTube, place your affiliate link for the product, and after the
video, do a 30-second still frame showing a short URL where people can buy the product. If your
video is funny, informative, or useful, you may sell some products. Big tip: Try to promote a
product that makes you a fair amount of money for each sale, but doesn't cost a whole lot for the
potential customer. You can find products on Commission Junction, for one.

10. Write an ebook targeted to people who need help.
Alexis Dawes created a product called "Desperate Buyers Only". I interview her for an upcoming
case study on Inspiring Innovators, where she mentions that she is able to make up to $97 from
ebooks as small as 12 pages. The key? Finding people who are incredibly desperate for the
information you provide and then doing good research to find a real solution to their problems.
The result? Happy customers whose problem is solved, and money for you - a win-win situation!
Caveat: It may be tough to find a real desperate buyer niche (Alexis reveals some in her case
study). Here are some hints: When were you last in a situation where information would have
either saved you a lot of money or a lot of pain? Has someone else close to you been in a
situation where they could have used information to avert pain? Think legal, medical, and financial
niches.
11. Build a small niche website.
Yes, you can make money online.I run a few small niche websites. For instance, How to Convert
PDF is a tiny site that has free videos on how to convert other types of documents into PDF
format. It sells a piece of software called PDF Creator, and I make a few dollars every time
someone buys from that site. I promoted the site using pay-per-click ads and it was profitable.
Don't copy me directly, but do find the intersection of people needing help and a tool, ebook, or
software program that will help them fix their problem. Then, create a website designed to get
them to buy it!
12. Help local businesses develop an online presence.
Local businesses are struggling. Many have websites, but aren't getting any results from them.
Others don't have websites at all. You can help by learning search engine optimization, how to set
up an email list, and more, and then implementing these for local businesses. If you typically hang
around geeks, web marketers, or the Web 2.0 crowd, you may be surprised how many business
owners are 10 years (or more) behind you! If you can deliver results, business owners will happily
pay. Find customers by going door-to-door.
13. Learn WordPress.
Then offer to install plugins and upgrade it.I hired David from Web Geek 4 Hire to upgrade my
blogs and install new WordPress plugins. He charges $5 to upgrade a plugin…great for him,
since most plugins only take a few minutes to upgrade, and great for me, since if anything breaks,
David gets to clean up the mess! You can make this a full time position; there is a ton of demand
for these services. Find customers by contacting bloggers directly. Get references from bloggers
who understand the value of outsourcing these tasks.
14. Become the go-to person for installations of a particular piece of software.
Anything from Amember to Quickbooks is fair game here. In the hosting industry, iDevAffiliate
andPlesk Billing were the pieces of software we would have paid a lot of money to have someone
else deal with. The more niche and more complex/annoying/frustrating the software, the better!
Even if the software company offers free installation, you can make hundreds or thousands of
dollars training business owners or their employees on its usage. Focus on one piece of software
and become the trusted expert. Create videos and tutorials using screencast software like
Camtasia to increase your profitability; this may also lead into a niche product that you can sell.
(Amember offers "free installation", but it took my boyfriend and I over 10 hours to configure it
properly. That's definitely something I would outsource next time!)
15. Interview other people and sell the interviews.
I experimented with this in 2008 and made over $800 from one interview. The key here is to

understand a pain point that people are experiencing, interview an expert, and ask the expert the
questions that the people experiencing the problem are having. Then create a small website and
sell the interview. There's more to this, including having good copywriting skills so your website
sells the interview well, and knowing where to advertise, so don't expect to immediately pull in
hundreds of dollars. That said, it's a neat way to quickly create a product. Get the interviews
transcribed, then string a few interviews in the same industry together as a membership site or
bundle that you can sell for more money.
16. Become a freelance "web geek.
"From configuring a shopping cart to installing and tweaking blog themes, there are virtually
unlimited projects out there for geeks who enjoy working with small business owners to get them
up and running online. Find people looking for web geeks on the Warrior Forum or other places
where entrepreneurs gather.
17. Enter logo and design contests.
Fancy yourself a good designer? Try your hand at creating a logo or other design that a company
loves! 99 Designs is the most popular marketplace. Beware, however; you won't get paid unless
your logo wins against many others, which makes many designers unhappy. In my opinion, this is
a great way for a budding designer to build a portfolio and learn quickly what clients love.
18. Create Twitter backgrounds and e-covers.
Competition is stiff, but if you are a savvy designer, this is a good way to pick up extra dollars.
Even better, if you are an artist, this is a good way to make your art skills pay off. Consider that
every design will need to have a reason why the customer should buy the book or follow that
person on Twitter to have a real impact. Twitter backgrounds, in particular, are in hot demand
right now. For measurements and caveats of Twitter backgrounds, read "How to create your own
Twitter background."
19. Submit websites or blog posts to social media websites.
Not very exciting work, but in high demand from bloggers and small businesses. This involves
setting up accounts on all of the social bookmarking services and then bookmarking your clients'
websites or latest blog posts to help them get more traffic. You may be competing against
software that does this, but in many folks' opinions, it's better to have a real person do it. Even
better is if you can goose your accounts with plenty of friends and become a star on a few of the
services; then every site you bookmark has higher credibility and you can charge more. To get an
idea of the social media sites you will need to sign up for, start at socialmarker.com.
20. Edit audio for others.
This is something that is fairly easy to learn and also in high demand. On Windows, one good
program to edit audio is Sony Sound Forge. I use Sound Forge Audio Studio, but if you are doing
this professionally, you might consider the upgrade to Sound Forge 9. Get the hang of editing out
"um"s and "ah"s from audio. Even better is understanding the "flow" of an interview conversation
and editing out portions that don't make sense. Finally, learning to find and add intro music really
gives podcasts that professional touch. Advertise your services on oDesk or eLance. I pay people
to do this for the podcasts I am setting up on Inspiring Innovators, and it's a job that can definitely
be done from your house.
