Have you ever thought of making money online before?
Chances are that you have.
If you’ve never made money online before you may be wondering if it’s even possible to do so. I want you to know that it’s possible to make money online. There are hundreds of ways to do it.
Today, I want to share with you four ways to make money online. The four ways range in ease, but with a little bit of hard work, anyone could do them.
The first way to make money online is to complete surveys. You may be wondering if online surveys are legit. My answer to that question is yes! There are several companies out there that pay people to take surveys.
Companies that pay people to take surveys include: Swagbucks, Amazon Mechanical Turk, and Inbox Dollars. In the past, I’ve done surveys with two of those sites.
The easiest surveys pay the least. When I was doing surveys to make money, I did a lot of the easy ones. Over time, the money started to add up. I will be the first person to tell you that you will not get rich doing surveys. That’s not the goal. The goal is to make a couple of hundred dollars each month. That is very attainable. You just have to find the ones to help you get there.

Craigslist, Kijiji & eBay
The next way that you can you can make money is one of my favorites: selling items on eBay and Craigslist or Kijiji (depending on where you are located). There is a lot of money to be made with both sites. eBay is an online marketplace that allows people to sell their items to potential buyers. Items are sold on eBay in two ways. The first way is through an auction. The seller lists the item and sets the price. Buyers then bid on the item. The highest bidder wins the item. The other way to sell your item is to set a fixed price. With this option, the buyer buys the item at the price that the seller has it listed for. Once the item is sold, it is shipped to the purchaser.

Craigslist or Kijiji are online marketplaces. Items are listed at a fixed price. Once it sells, the buyer and the seller meet to complete the transaction. I’ve sold items on both eBay and Craigslist; they are both user-friendly and easy to set up.
Number three on the list is Fiverr. Fiverr is an online marketplace where people offer small jobs and services. You can start out listing your gig for $5. People perform services such as edit documents, design flyers, and do voiceovers.
I’ve read about people making thousands of dollars by adding premium services to their $5 gigs. Fiverr is free to sign up for if you want to give it a try.
Another way to make money online is to write for other people. If you’re writing skills are strong, you can make a lot of money doing this. Many people need freelance writers to help them with their websites or blogs. There are many ways to find freelance writing gigs, including word of mouth, Craigslist, and Upwork.com. I’ve been freelancing for a year and I’ll be the first one to tell you that I’ve gotten a lot of my freelance jobs through word of mouth. Networking is critical.
In my opinion, these are four legit (and easy) ways for anyone to start with when it comes to making money online. It’s up to you get to work. Make it happen.
