With the economy in flux the way it is now a days and the unemployment rates hitting all new highs, trying to find a way to generate extra income can be hard. While there are many get rich quick schemes online, and almost assuredly the majority do not work, or only work for a few, finding your options can seem a daunting task. In this article I would like to present a few proven methods of generating income. While none of these methods will replace your primary job, in trying times any extra income is better then none.
When it comes to making money online there are few real choices that come few and far between. We have all seen the advertising for websites who will make you rich from taking surveys, or trying products, or reviewing advertisement, and while the majority of these sites really offer to pay you, the profits do not come until you are signed up with their referral programs, and lets face it, that rarely happens for the majority of people who try them. With that being said, all is not lost and there are some genuine ways to make money.
1.Writing for money can be a good source of additional income. There are several websites online who will pay you to write for them. AssociatedContent.com is one of many, and the one I use. They pay on a per page view, and while you probably wont get rich, with a few good articles, it is very possible to make a little bit of extra income. The hard part in this is that you have to be able to select topics that will appeal to the masses, and generate page views. Most sites will pay you per page view (or 1000 page views) and if people are not reading your articles, you are not making any money.
2. Another way to make extra income online is having “online yard sales” through websites like craigslist and ebay, and various other local classifieds (Search your area for any others). These websites allow you to sell your unwanted and unneeded junk at decent prices, and can be a way to generate some much needed income in hard times. Also if you are willing to do the legwork and cruise yard sales, it is possible to start your own business of sorts selling things online. Again while many people claim to make a living at this, I find that those are few and far between, but this is absolutely a good way to make some decent extra income.
3.In hard times people must do what they have to, to generate extra income. Second jobs, while hard, trying, and some times demeaning can be a great source of extra income. Some telemarketing companies offer telecommute positions for the right person. Also Food Delivery services make great second jobs. These both usually offer flexible schedules, and while you are not going to get rich, they make great secondary incomes.
A word of warning to anyone looking online for extra income, If they offer to make you rich enough to quit your day job, it is probably a scam. If they require you to pay an upfront fee, you are the source of their get rich scam, and are being scammed. The above methods have been tried and named true, not only by me but countless others. You will not get rich quick, but they will prove valuable sources of extra income.
