While it may not be realistic to assume that you can turn into a millionaire in two weeks' time, there are some tried and tested legitimate avenues where you can make money fast.
All you really need is a decent internet service and you can begin putting your skills to work to earn some valuable dollars.
There are a number of well-reputed websites that offer you the opportunity to make money fast from the comfort and privacy of your home. Moreover, you can choose your hours of work and how much work you are able to handle.
Amazon Mechanical Turk
This is a job website designed by the Amazon guys and if you are a programmer, designer or writer, you can select from the enormous amount of HITs available on this site. HIT stands for Human Intelligence Task. The good part about using Amazon Mechanical Turk is that you are assured of protection from online frauds such as identity thefts given the high repute Amazon enjoys.
You need a valid email address plus an Amazon payment account to get started making money. The higher number of HITs you are able to complete, the better is your chance of bagging tasks offering higher pay. The AMT has an automatic tracker system that monitors your percentage of accepted and rejected work so pay attention to quality.
Payment for work done is processed as soon as the requester (client who want the job done and who have deposited money with Amazon) is satisfied with what you have done.
Buying and selling on eBay
You can make a decent income on eBay easily once you know how. The first step is to visit the website and open an account online as a buyer or seller. This is free of cost. There are two ways you can make money fast on eBay:
1. Selling : Offer to sell items for people you know. For example, once you feel your way around eBay and understand how it works, you can offer to sell items for friends, family and relatives. You can mark up a decent commission for yourself while simultaneously getting them a good deal at the same time.
2. Buying : You can try investing small sums of money into buying popular items on eBay and then selling it at a marked up cost (while keeping the cost attractive to your customers). The best way to gauge which items are the most popular is to check how many bids a particular item has. The higher the number of bids, the more in demand the item is.
Making money online need not involve complications and heavy investments. Starting small is a great way to feeling your way without wasting your valuable resources.
