There are a myriad of ways to make money in your spear time in a virtual space or online.
Take surveys to earn cash.
Start a blog
I know what you’re thinking… “Are you kidding? I thought we were talking about fast and easy ways to make money?”
No matter where your talents and interests lay from health to hobbies (like cars) to personal finance, there’s probably some money to be made in a blog without investing much. Here are a couple of tips to get started fast and at very little expense.
Hosting for less than $3 per month with Bluehost.
Bluehost is the top hosting company I would recommend to anyone. They have cost-effective and scalable plans, most of which include unlimited disk storage, domain hosting, email addresses, and bandwidth or you can start using WordPress for free. Setting up your blog is easy. Here is another helpful tutorial as well.
Once your site is up, there are several ways to start making money from advertising, to sponsored posts, to affiliate links.
While a personal blog is one channel for affiliate marketing, you don’t HAVE to run a blog to start generating an income. If you have a social following or manage a Facebook page, leverage your platform and audience to promote products you use and get paid a commission.
Below are some favorites that pay.
MaxBounty is a repository of high-converting campaigns that you can promote to your audience.
One program I truly love is Clickfunnels. I use their platform to run my business, and I am also an affiliate earning about $3,000 per month as a side gig. There are plenty of people that are full-time affiliate marketers for Clickfunnels making six figures a year and more!

Rent out your spare room
You don’t have to have an extravagant vacation home to make money with Airbnb. I know plenty of people that cover their rent or mortgage by renting out their studio apartment or spare room.
Get paid to shop
One of my tried and true favorite ways to make money is Ebates, now Rakuten. It’s one of the easiest ways to earn money because it requires no special skills, just cash for something you do anyway. It free, and so easy to use (I like the chrome browser extension)! On the Rakuten site, there is a list of over 1700 participating stores that is growing every day. Sign up and start earning anywhere from 2%-30% cashback on your purchase. They also have a great referral program—another $25 bucks for each friend you refer!

Offer a service
Can you do a killer batman impersonation over the phone? Are you good with a camera? Is creative writing your thing? Share your talents and earn some extra cheese. There are a ton of these sites, but Fiverr is a personal favorite.
Sign up with Fiverr and start earning cash, they also have a referral program where you earn for every sign-ups you bring under you.
Become a tasker with TaskRabbit
Can you help clean or move? Are you handy? Are you an Ikea assembling master? Even if this isn’t you, I’d be willing to bet there’s something you can offer in the way of time and/or talents on TaskRabbit to build a nice little side-hustle.

Open an Etsy Store
If you have a hand-made product to sell, why not earn some extra cash from your creative hobby? I know of persons who have huge bucks within a couple of months creating wonderful crafts. It is incredibly easy to set up a shop and upload images of your products to start making sales.
Drive for Uber or Lyft
If you have a car and some time, this is a great option. I have tons of friends that have turned this into a nice side (or full time!) gig. Applying is easy and you can make your own schedule.
Sell Your Old Stuff
Purge to earn some cash AND do something therapeutic for yourself! I have used and had success with Facebook Marketplace, Poshmark, and Craigslist, and eBay.
The key to making money fast and every day is to be consistent and take the right actions.
These few strategies that I have laid out for making $100 a day won’t make you money right away, but others will.
But the important thing to remember is making money is both a short-term thing and a long-term thing.
For example, If you have an idea for a blog or online business, but you don’t have the $100 it takes to start, then start taking online surveys, sell some old stuff, become an Uber driver, etc…
The fastest way to make your idea into reality is to start taking action!
Good luck on your journey to making money online!
