Be a virtual assistant

What is a virtual assistant?

A virtual assistant is someone who works remotely and helps others with their work. For example, you might be hired to help a business owner manage their email inbox or pay bills online. You can also offer other services such as calendar appointments, data entry and more. As long as there's something that can be done on the computer from anywhere in the world, it's fair game for this type of gig!

Casually sell your crafts and knick knacks

A few years ago, I was selling my crafts and knick knacks on Etsy. I made decent money by selling items like hand-carved wooden jewelry boxes and small 3D wall art pieces. Later, when eBay became more popular, I started selling the same things there as well. It was a lot of work to create listings for each item and wait for buyers to contact me about buying them but it was worth it because the income helped me pay bills at home.

Today, many people prefer Facebook over other social media sites so if you're looking for a way to make extra cash quickly then try that avenue first by posting your products on your page or groups within the site (there are dozens!).

Craigslist is another option although this one may be harder since there are fewer people who use it nowadays and many companies have banned their employees from using this site due to its reputation as being unsafe or fraudulent--but if you don't mind taking those risks then go ahead!

Watch videos

You can also make some quick cash by watching videos. If you haven't heard of it, watch videos for money is a thing.

Here are some of the best sites that pay you to watch videos:

  • YouTube: This is probably the most popular one out there and it makes sense why. With over 1 billion users, it's no wonder people want to pay you to watch their content so they can reach more people!
  • Facebook: Facebook has become a daily platform for millions upon millions of people around the world so they're constantly looking for ways to generate revenue and this is one way they do it!
  • Twitch: Another huge platform with over 100 million monthly users, Twitch allows anyone to stream any type of content all day long! You can earn money by simply viewing ads while watching other peoples' live streams or even create your own channel if you feel like sharing your own content! If not though then just spend time checking out other peoples' channels too because who knows when someone might find yours interesting enough where they'll click through an ad for something else after watching yours? Maybe even win some prizes along with getting paid per view 🙂

Do some surveys

The first step to getting paid for surveys is finding the right survey websites.

  • There are a lot of places you can find paid surveys, and it can be overwhelming if you don't know where to start. To make things easier, go with a reputable company like Swagbucks or MyPoints that has been around for years and has a good reputation for paying people who complete their surveys. You'll also want to check out some review sites like this one by ConsumerAffairs before signing up with any company—they'll tell you which ones are legitimate and which ones aren't worth your time.
  • Once you've found a survey site that looks legit and meets all your criteria (for example: Is there an app? Can I use it on my mobile phone?), sign up! They'll usually send an email once they approve your account so keep an eye out for that email address in case they need additional information from you before granting access into their database of potential clients/projects available at any given time."

Sell your photos

  • Sell your photos online. The internet is full of people who want to buy photos, and there are plenty of websites that will pay you for them. You can sell your photos on sites like Fotolia, Shutterstock, Dreamstime, and Canstockphoto.
  • Sell your photos to local businesses. If you take a lot of pictures in or around your town or city, think about selling some to local businesses like restaurants and bars. For example: if you're a photographer who lives near an amusement park that hosts summer concerts every year, offer to sell the event organizers prints from each night's show (you'll probably have to negotiate payment).
  • Sell prints at flea markets or other events where people buy things from strangers off the street corner (and bring cash so they don't have to whip out their phones). This can be very lucrative but requires a bit more work than just posting an image online—but if it's easy enough for someone else who has never sold anything before then why not give it a try? It could be fun too!
