Many newcomers come into the internet marketing world because they want to earn quick cash.
Earning money on the internet is becoming easier and easier, now that so many resources, courses, e-books and training platforms are available. But there is still a learning curve involved, especially if you plan on being one of the really big industry earners.
In the meantime, here are some legitimate ways to get paid for a wide range of online activities very quickly:
Write articles and/or blog posts:
More and more sites will pay for your articles or blog posts. Associated Content and Helium pay based on performance which is the number of page views your articles collect. Articles on specific topics can even earn direct payments up to about $200. And many companies are looking for part-time bloggers. The Weblogs Guide posts blogging jobs weekly in its forum.
Make money helping people find better jobs:
Sites like Who Do You Know For Dough?, WiseStepp, ReferEarns, Zyoin and Bohire bring hiring employers together with prospective employees. Pay for referring a candidate who gets hired ranges from $50 on up to several thousand dollars. So if you happen to know someone who’s looking for a job, you too can start your own recruiting business without investing a dime.
Act as a broker – connect suppliers with buyers:
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be a professional photographer to make money from your photos. There is always a need for stock photography for websites, presentations, brochures and so on, and people are very eager to pay for the right image. You need to make sure that you don’t include images of trademarked brands, copyrighted art or well known people but those are really about the only rules you need to follow. It would probably surprise you to learn what people need pictures of. If it’s a decent quality photo, upload it. Some sites to get you started include ShutterStock, Fotolia, Dreamstime and iStockphoto.
Set up your own blog:
Most people who are just starting out in internet marketing are intimidated by this but you really shouldn’t be. Nowadays it is so easy. At Blogger, for example, you can set up a blog for free in just a few minutes even if you’ve never blogged before. And you can make money this way because Blogger even automates setting up Google AdSense ads on your blog – when people click on these ads, you get paid. You can also advertise your own affiliate products and make commissions off of the sales you get from these. Just pick a subject that you like, write some articles about it, and get traffic to your blog.
These are just a few ways you can earn quick cash online even if you don’t have sales or marketing skills, even if you have no money to invest and even if you don’t have your own product.
