The mere mention of making money online conjures grand visions of creating the next Facebook, Amazon or Youtube. While there are definitely great rewards for creating the next killer app, you will need significant skills, finances, a good measure of luck, and a significant amount of time to succeed. For most people, it would be a lot more practical to consider using the following methods instead to make money online.
1. Online garage sale
This is an often-neglected way to raise some cash fast. First, go through your belongings: take everything you do not need and drag it out into the living room. Next, open up Notepad on your computer and make an inventory of those items. They could be old gaming consoles, unwanted clothes, broken electronic products, trinkets you grew bored of, books, toys, curtains etc. Next, create simple free text ads on Craigslist or any free classifieds site for your inventory. Once you have done so, you should receive requests in just hours.
If you need help in pricing these items, try finding out how much other people want for similar items via a simple search on the classifieds sites. Also, you should state in your ads that buyers have to collect the item themselves and that they must pay in cash. This method should net you over a hundred dollars in cash in just a couple of days´ work.
