There are many ways to make money out there. Unfortunately many require a good amount of work upfront. What is a person who wants to lazily make money to do? Luckily there are some easy ways you can make money.
Yes, you will still need to put forth some effort. Money doesn’t grow on trees. But you can make money easy without a lot of effort with these ideas below.
The best part is that these ideas are legit. You don’t have to worry if you are getting scammed or are doing something completely illegal.
Let’s get started!
3 Simple Ways To Make Money
#1. Sell Water
If you have any events happening around you, head to a warehouse club and buy some packs of water. You should be able to get a pack of 40 or so bottles for less than $10. Then head over to the event and patrol the streets offering water for $1.
It doesn’t matter if it is hot outside or not, odds are you will have people interested in buying water from you. I’ve had best results as people leave the event. I think this is because they refuse to pay the inflated price for drinks inside.
One note to this. Be smart about it. In some areas, you might need a permit to sell. It is up to you whether you go through the correct channels to get a permit if required or if you just hustle around the event without a permit, risking getting caught.
#2. Sell Your Pictures
Do you love taking pictures with your smartphone? Well now you can profit from these pictures! All you have to do is download the free app Foap and create an account.
From there, you just upload your pictures to the marketplace and wait. If someone buys a picture you get paid. So if a picture sells for $10, you get $5. And you get paid every time someone buys a photo.
The more quality pictures you take and upload, the greater the chance you sell some to would-be buyers. If you find that you have a following, you might want to expand and sell your photos in other places too.
#3. Test Websites
You can make up to $30 an hour by testing websites. The great news is that you don’t need to be a tech nerd to take advantage of this opportunity. All you have to do is create a free account on UserTersting.com.
You will then be given a short test to take so the site can see how you did and offer any feedback for you to improve upon. From there, you just wait until jobs come in and earn $10 a pop.
So what exactly are you testing here? Many website owners want to know what users think of their sites when they first arrive or want to see how people navigate around a site. They also may want to know of any broken links or issues on their websites.
They hire UserTesting who uses you to do the work. You might get a job for a site that wants you to find a pair of jeans and put them in your shopping cart. As you do the task, your voice is being recorded and you talk about your experience and any issues you come across.
The overall jobs take 15 minutes and you get paid $10 for it.
So there are 3 easy ways you can make money quickly. As I mentioned at the start, they do still require that you put forth some effort, but you don’t have to go crazy. Just a few hours here and there and you will earn some serious money.
And who knows, maybe something greater will come from these jobs that will lead to greater opportunities to make more money.
