However,  blogging is not for everyone as it requires a lot of time and patience. There are many other ways that you can use to make quick and easy money on the internet. Easy here means using your existing skills.

Perhaps you should try different methods mentioned in this article and pick the one that works for you. I have also listed down a few sites from where you can get some quick work and money will start pouring in. For the record, initially, you might be making money in small chunks, but once you have mastered the field you are working on, you will be making huge.

So, let’s get started with this ultimate list of online money-making methods.

This is the first place that I would recommend you to start with.  At Freelancer, you can find various freelancing jobs. Since you are the one who knows what you are good at (Writing, Web-designing, Social media or anything) you can find the job listed by many others, and you can apply for it.

The job varies from $1-$300/hour, which is a lot. You need to create a free account for the starter and start building your profile. I recommend starting working at a low price and giving your best.

Try to get as many positive testimonials as possible, and once you have built a good profile, you can start raising your hourly price. oDesk offers a helpful guide for newbies, which you can use to learn how to use it and how you can earn more from it.

In simple words, Freelancer com is a marketplace that connects freelancers with others. I have hired many skilled people from Freelancer, and it works pretty well.

Become Virtual Assistant:

Chances are you might be an individual who doesn’t have great skills but you are good at data feeding or doing research work on the internet.

Virtual assistant is a popular job that anyone with limited internet skills can use and make money. In a virtual assistant job, you will be hired by anybody on the internet to do some simple tasks like editing excel sheet, proof-reading, find something on the internet and make a list, clean up email inbox to name a few.

This is so far one of the easiest job types you can find on the internet and earn a decent income. Here I’m listing down few resources which will make you learn everything about being a virtual assistant and places where you can find such a job.

You can also use Freelancer (Above) to find a virtual assistant job.

One of the biggest drawbacks of the above two methods is; you need to look for the recruiter. If you don’t find a job which matches your skill-set, you have to be idle.

This 3rd method is for those who have a defined skill set which is unique in nature. Fiverr is a marketplace where you can sell your skills starting at $5 and earn more.

For example, if you are someone who can convert text into speech, or install WordPress or do any other thing which is in demand, you can earn a good income. There are users who are earning more than $50,000 from Fiverr.

If you are wondering what kind of things you can offer to others on Fiverr, you should check out their homepage and browse and see what others are selling. Below I have listed few more ideas that you can use on Fiverr to earn from home.

    Hi Harsh,
    I was just searching some online tips on ‘making money fast’ and my search ended here. It’s really an amazing article. But I noticed one thing that you have not mentioned earning money through investing in stock market. This also easy way of multiplying money for a trend hand.

    Thanks for sharing such a fabulous article, keep posting….

    Good article. Odesk is now Upwork right? I work over at Upwork. My account transferred from Elance. I went kicking and screaming, but it’s not so bad now.

    I think in bidding lower you have to be careful. I did that myself for the first 2 gigs, but then moved on. If you stay at a lower rate beyond that it encourages potential clients to low-ball your rate. And why shouldn’t they at that point?

    Definitely you can make good money. It takes time though. It’s not a quick fix. I began unconventionally. I was already unemployed, but running a top-rated eBay business selling Antiques, Vintage an Knick Knacks. It wasn’t for me so I kept it going while I tried my hand at Freelancing. Almost gave up and then I landed my first gig. Rest is history.

    It seems there is a new blog everywhere you look and the ones that got to market first are the ones that will pull on the most money unless they lose their base. Alternatively, new bloggers must have a radical new viewpoint to catch a huge marketshare migrate readers from other blogs. The real questions becomes how saturated is the market, what’s the retention rate of a good blogger, what causes a bloggers to lose/fail to gain readership, and what ate the new areas people will flock to that bloggers are genuinely interested in and knowledgeable about enough to make a true living in today’s world?

    Writing is a skill that all the above needs just add is communication, and professionalism. Then there are the bloggers that come together that more or less form done type of publication. After all, what’s a blog anyway other than freelance writing being monetized in the end by most who are successful, take bloggers together of a same interest and you have a publication – and goodness knows many bloggers could use editors.

    Now there’s a job for someone, a freelance editor for bloggers.. or freelance agents for freelance programmers… 😉

    But there are lots of peoples who do not know programming making cheap bids in the freelancing sites. these cheap bidders are getting freelancing work but not able to complete the job, that’s why good freelancer’s reputation are going down. These cheap peoples are making freelancer a tough platform to survive.

    Are you agree?

  9. Jav Angelo

    The easy part has always been programming actually. The harder part is always spreading the word.
    Being a Java programmer and having worked for the top MNC in the world and having been associated with some apps, I have come to understand that just limiting your knowledge to programming will never make your money. May be you might get lucky to some what extent in freelancing. But the true money where you will be paid even when you are not working is apps.

  10. Nizam

    Yes, blogging and freelance writing are the most important and useful ways. Well, I didn’t know one can work for call centre right from home and you made it really helpful by listing Alpine Access and Live Ops.

  11. sriganesh

    thanks for the money post ;), one thing sure i cant jump in the last four steps, but the first one really working for me – blogging. after two months of blogging i can revenue through my blog,
    the mistake i made in blog is when i started my blog , dont know about blogging, seo, social networking power. after blogging , I came to learn and learning many things, thats y some of them dont know my blog well ,

    note – my opinion for beginners !! : you should blog not for the case of money – if do then you lose interest if you dont get the much money you excepted, blogging is to share your creative ideas and niche 🙂 good going and go blogging !! and the money fill your account the way you make blogging 🙂

    Just like Engineers use the internet for programing, similiarly finance professionals use Interent for trading in Stock Markets.

    and not only Finance professionals, everyone related to stock markets, trade via the internet from the convinience of their homes

  13. Curios Little Person

    Good ways to earn money online… I’m currently blogging but can think of freelance writing as well


  14. Arun

    As per my knowledge Blogging and Freelance Writing can make decent amount of money.

    1. elmot

      i kinda agree with arun on this one. freelancers make most money actually while they still have the hold of their time…however, it takes alot of talent to flourish in this kind of make money venture.

  15. Tycoon Blogger
