4. Legitimate Online Survey Sites
Companies will pay you real money to take online surveys. Each survey typically takes about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. One of the most popular survey sites that I know of is Swagbucks. Another survey site that I use is Global Test Market. Their surveys usually take me about 15 minutes or less to complete.
5. Sell Stuff On Craigslist
Do you have stuff at home that you never use? List them on Craigslist and make some extra cash. Craigslist is your online garage sale! You earn extra money and de-clutter your home all at the same time. Just make sure you take perfect pictures and write a good description of the items you’re selling.
6. Take On The Role Of Virtual Assistant
Become a virtual assistant. A virtual assistant (aka VA) is a person who helps individuals or companies run their business by performing different tasks for them. There’s a myriad of tasks that you can do as a virtual assistant. You can, for example, write content for websites, do copywriting, and answer phone calls. You can even take on complete software development projects if programming is your thing.
