The old adage, “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is,” is definitely true for online money-making schemes and programs.
But is it possible to make money online fast?
Sure! But I’m talking about a reasonably small amount of money in 3 days when you need a bit of extra cash quickly, not enough to retire to the islands on.
Everyone needs a bit of extra cash now and then. Forgot your Mom’s birthday, fix the car, pay back your buddy, buy a new game coming out or a new shirt for your hot date? The methods on this page can help you get enough money to do things like this in 3 days or less.
Sell Something for Money
It seems obvious that you’d have to sell something to make money at all, anywhere. Selling something online is that much easier because you have a world-wide audience ready to buy things from you.
What can you sell online for money?
Anything really. What do you have lying around your house that you don’t want anymore?
- Clothes that don’t fit anymore
- Books you’ve already read
- Ugly presents you never unwrapped
- Knick-knacks or decorations
What can you make quickly?
- Tie-dye t-shirts
- Beaded bracelets
- Origami designs
- Fancy bookmarks or greeting cards
Can you collect anything from outside that you could sell?
- Pine cones
- Heirloom vegetable seeds
- Dried flowers
Please make sure it is safe and legal to collect whatever it is before you collect and sell it! Collecting things from your own property is best.
How to Sell Something Online
Once you know what you want to sell, how do you sell it to make money in 3 days or less on the internet?
The two biggies when it comes to quick and easy sales are eBay and Craigslist. There may be thousands of classified and auction sites out there, but these two get the most traffic by far. More traffic equals more people there to see what you have to sell.
Create an account, create an add and upload multiple pictures of the object you wish to sell. More pictures are better than just one, because people will know exactly what they’re getting, including flaws. Revealing all of them will also make you a more trusted seller.
On eBay, set your auction length to 3 days if you want a quick sale. It is best to do this on a weekend, as more people search for things to buy then.
Write Something for Money
Freelance writing can be a full-time professional career, but it can also be a once-in-a-while thing to make some money quickly when you need it. The only requirement is an internet connection and the ability to write reasonably well.
Several avenues for finding quick and easy writing work are available. Some sites will pay you for work you do rather quickly, while others take weeks or even months. Direct paying clients are ideal for quick payouts, but where do you find them?
