Effortless ways to make a quick buck

There are still other relatively effortless ways to make a quick buck and you should  consider these options:

Get paid to take easy surveys- You’ve got opinions, and marketers want them — bad. 

It’s no get-rich-quick scheme, but there are tons of ways to earn small payments for helping brands figure out what makes you tick. 

Some companies like Inbox Dollars send daily offers straight to your email, while others like Swagbucks and Survey Junkie reward you with small payouts and gift cards in exchange for completing surveys and other online tasks.

The payouts on such sites can vary wildly, but experts over at The Penny Hoarder suggest focusing on the trial offers, which can net you up to $25 for just a few minutes of work. 

Testing out other people’s websites can pay up to $10 for every 30-minute test you complete. 

Some businesses that connect you to sites to test, like UserTesting and Userlytics, have certain requirements — like owning a microphone or webcam, for example — but many will pay you directly via PayPal.

Local Facebook selling groups are great for shifting items fast. If your post is seen by the right person then you could make a sale within a matter of minutes. Simply photograph your item or items and upload them to local selling groups with a description, being sure to include a price.

Then group members can leave comments to express their interest and you can privately arrange the sale. There are no fees when selling on Facebook, making it a great place to sell.

Earning a little money on the side doesn’t mean you have to take on a part-time job. Instead, be creative. There are literally hundreds of ways for you to make money fast without selling your soul or chaining yourself to a desk.
