And one is all you need to make enough money online.

  1. Completing Online Surveys

The goal is not to become a millionaire by simply sitting behind your computer half the day and answering survey questions. However, completing surveys online is one sure way to making money fast. All it takes is a few minutes of filling a form online. A survey can earn you as much as $4 in some cases. How much you want to earn daily depends on how many surveys you complete.

  1. Online Trading

You can partake in the over $3trillion market with as little as $100 for some brokers. Online derivatives trading provides you with margins which effectively magnifies your profits and losses by scaling up the volumes you can trade, given how much you invested. That simply means you can double your money in a matter of hours. The financial instruments to be traded are many and there are also many trading platforms including Ava trader, MT4, eToro, Reuters, and many more. Look for the one that gives you the best terms and begin making money real fast.

I must warn you that CFD trading can be volatile and you can lose your entire capital, so don’t throw your life savings into it! Trading CFDs may not be suitable for you. Please ensure you fully understand the risks involved.

  1. Websites, Apps and Product Reviews

If you’re fortunate to be skilled in one thing or another, then the perfect way for you to make money real fast is to put that knowledge or skill to use immediately. Many businesses and individuals who develop products (tangible or electronic such as apps and websites) would like to have a second opinion –usually and expert opinion and recommendations. For example, UserTesting.com – a new platform that pays everyday people to review all kinds of websites, with each review taking around 20 minutes and bags you $10 (£6.50) via Paypal. If you are a music lover and you love your music, you can review music for cash. Fashion commentators and critics, movie commentators and critics do make money reviewing products in their categories.

  1. Start A Website

Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Dropbox, are all web applications that started small. You can start your own website with as little as $50. The returns are limitless and the risk is not high. You have to identify a problem or a need that you’ll satisfy with your website or web app. These days, websites and web applications are the simplest and fastest ways to make money. People have succeeded in this business and have become millionaires while a few others are even billionaires. Blogs like lindaikejiblog.com, ghanaweb.com, copyblogger.com, problogger.net have all seen great success. Starting your own website is another way to make money fast, no matter where you find yourself. America, Kenya, India, Nigeria, Ghana, Australia, the UK, Canada, and wherever you find yourself, you can make money quickly with a useful website.

  1. Delivery Rider

Irrespective of gender, many countries present an opportunity for you to make money fast by simply delivering parcels or goods around the city or town. You can go solo by simply advertising yourself and your service in your neighborhood or simply using the extensive market reach of social media to advertise your pick-up and delivery service. You can also sign up as a delivery person with specialist companies like Deliveroo who are always on the hunt for new riders. They allow you total flexibility to work when you want, delivering food from restaurants to the customers’ door. You can make up to £16 an hour. You could also double-up your opportunities by directly contacting local takeaways and bigger chains like Dominos, Starbites, etc to see if they have any delivery jobs going. Look for fast foods centers and restaurant operators and connect with them.

  1. Social Media Manager

It’s not a difficult task but most big and small businesses simply do not have the time to continuously monitor their social media feeds and timelines, whilst responding to comments. This is where you come in to make money quickly. Ask to manage their social media accounts for them for a fee. This will include but not limited to posting, designing attractive marketing images, sharing contents. Also, managing groups and communities, responding to comments, reputation management, among others. Whether you have basic education or specialized training, you can get a business that needs your social media skills for which they’ll pay. You can make about $500 per month or more depending on your client, nature of engagement and the part of the world you find yourself. The good news is you can have more than just a client and that increases your earnings.

  1. Sell Fast Moving Consumer Goods

The everyday products that people consume are those that can make you money quickly. The margins are often tiny, so it’s largely a volumes business. The more you sell the more money you make. FMCG product range is extensive, from bakery products to sugar, salt, recharge cards, rice and the list goes on and on. Look for products that people in your neighborhood consume on daily basis and start selling them. You’ll be surprised how much money you make and how quickly you make the money.

  1. Competitions

Entering competitions of course comes with no guarantees, but there is a growing community of so-called ‘compers’ in the UK consistently making up to £50,000 a year through all sorts of competitions, Owen Burek wrote

Types of competitions available to enter range from simple registration forms and Facebook page liking to answering questions correctly over the phone to being a TV game show contestant. Imagine you made it onto Deal or No Deal instead of just watching it!

  1. Sell Old Stuff

There’s no point keeping something that you find no value for anymore. Your old clothes, shoes, home appliances, phones, books, and what have you, can all be exchanged for cash. You’ll be surprised how much money you can make by occasionally cleaning up. It not only frees your house for space but makes you money real fast. After reading this article, just look around you and start making a decision about all the unused items around you. Call the second-hand dealers and see how you make money quickly. Amazon and other e-commerce websites would be of great help.

  1. No-Risk Matched Betting

Owen Burek posted that this is the quickest way to make a lot of money (well, without breaking the law). Lots of students have genuinely made £100s from this technique. It’s completely legal, risk free, tax free, and anyone can do it.

It works by taking advantage of free bets regularly offered by betting sites through ‘matching’ them at a betting exchange. Matched betting eliminates the risk (you are betting both for and against a certain outcome).

This leaves you being able to squeeze out the free bet, which can be as much as £200! Multiply this by how many betting sites there are and you can quite easily come away with a profit of a few hundred pounds.

Owen walks you through how to make your first £15 profit (using a real life example) in this gem of a guide to matched betting. If you know of any better way to make £30/hr sitting at home, please let us know!

There are several avenues for making money quickly. The internet is your new friend if you take time to identify the numerous opportunities it presents you to make money fast, no matter your location. However, for those who still prefer brick-and-mortar, your opportunities are not going to dwindle any time soon. There will always be money making opportunities for all.
