Earn Extra Money, Extra Fast
We have all been there, short on cash, possibly jobless and totally desperate. Maybe 20 years ago, you wouldn't have any other option than finding a usual job and hoping to get out of the pit soon enough. Luckily, we live in such an age that part-time workers are needed almost everywhere and this can get you out of the money-lacking zone. Here are the hottest freelance and part time jobs that will definitely get you on your feet.
Many writers, journalists and researchers, spend a lot of time doing interviews, which then have to be transcribed, which is unfortunately time and energy consuming. But that's when you come along!
Demand for such services can easily be found in certain online services or you can try on your own and contact local magazines and newspapers. What you need is a laptop and a pair of headphones and your only task is to listen and type what you've heard and forward it to the sender.
You can earn a decent amount of money with this job and the great part is that you're not actually hired, so no strings attached for you after you finish the task!
If you have good writing skills, there are many ways you can use them to earn extra money. Many owners of websites are looking for part time writers to enhance their content. Most of them specialise on a certain topic so you can decide what you want to write about before signing up for it.
If writing articles isn't your thing, you can always turn to newspapers and magazines who would request you to write reviews of restaurants, movies, books, etc.
Some writers may need people to write their annotations or can pay you to boost up their reviews in forums or blogs.
Many online auctioning websites like eBay, make it possible for people to sell just about anything online. All of us have that one drawer (or closet) full of useless things that we are never going to use and they'll end up in the trash anyway. So why not make the most out of them?
Register in any auctioning website, take pictures of the product, write a good summary and just wait for the shoppers.
This may take more time than the previous ones, but it is still a job that will get you money fast. Many companies don't see the need of hiring more staff to do simple, administrative tasks such as information organising, data entry or sending out e-mails.
That's why they have gone for freelancers, which is very beneficial if you're looking for something easy you can do from home without big commitments to the employer.
Do you have a personal blog or a lot of followers on social media? This may be the time to make the use of them. Many companies who launch new products search for "human advertisements", meaning that they are willing to pay you money wear/ tweet/ post/ show off their product to your social circle, in order to make it more popular.
Nevertheless, make sure you check what their incentives are, because in some cases, companies don't offer a monetary reward, but a discount on their product or a free sample.
If you have a good camera and an eye for photography, why not profit from it? No, I'm not telling you to try and sell your selfies, but if you have any good pictures of basically anything, you can search for people willing to buy them.
There are websites, suited for beginner photographers, where magazines and newspapers are willing to buy your photos, of course for a lower price than a professional photographer would charge, but it's a win-win, so why not?
Turn your car into a moneymaker
It may sound odd, but with the extreme competition in almost every industry, advertisers are willing to brand anything to promote themselves. So providing your car to be covered in someone's ads may be a big opportunity for you.
Companies will definitely be interested, since you'll probably charge less than a usual transit advertising services and you get to earn extra money just for driving somewhere. And also a bonus- you never get to spend money on painting your car ever again.
Providing your personal info such as sex, date of birth, location, etc., can make you qualified for many research programs and focus group examinations. Your main task would be mainly to sit and answer the researcher's questions, participate in different exercises or team working, depending on what the research is on.
Overall, extremely easy way to earn extra money, but have in mind that it may be a bit time-consuming.
And of course, online survey participant
Maybe the easiest and most reliable way of gaining some extra cash, with no strings attached at any point. You just have to register for free on a survey platform, provide your info and wait for the surveys to start flowing!
It won't take much of your time, depending on how many surveys you participate in and you are usually aware of the amount of money you will earn before you start. This method is a great opportunity if you have a lot of free time on your hands and wish to sit at home while working.
As a plus, it's not even actual work, companies pay you to provide them with your opinion, so it requires no heavy effort from you at all.
