I have, over the last couple of years, discovered a handful of ways of making some fast and easy money.
All of them are genuine and take very little effort, and they go to make up what is a very welcome source of supplemental income.
If you too would welcome some easy extra money, then why not give some or all of the following suggestions a try.
You won't become very wealthy through these methods, but you will definitely increase your income. I think you'll also find that a lot of what you are being paid for is actually fun.
Paid online surveys are a popular and very easy way to earn extra income online. There are numerous genuine paid surveys that are free to sign up to - don't ever pay to join up with any as there really is no need.
These surveys are highly convenient in that they fit in with everybodies personal lives, no matter how busy they are. You simply spend between 5 and 20 minutes on average, answering questions (normally just ticking an applicable box). There are obviously no right or wrong answers. They just want to know what your opinion is on the relevant subject.
Another great way to earn extra is mystery shopping.
Mystery shoppers (also known as secret shoppers) are employed by agencies. Basically, mystery shoppers pose as ordinary customers, but there mission is to record there experiences and report them back to the agencies.
To become a mystery shopper, you apply to the agencies and supply them with your relevant details. Again, you should never need to pay these agencies. All reputable agencies are totally free to join.
When these agencies have an assignment that is suitable, they will contact you to arrange a mutually agreeable time for you to perform your task. Then. off you go, shopping, and being paid for it!!! How good is that?
Possibly more lucrative than the above methods, but maybe harder to get into, is focus groups.
There are offline and online focus groups.
Offline being small groups of pre selected people who match certain criteria meeting face to face in a room, and online being the same sort of thing, but in a chat room type environment via pc's.
The purpose of these focus groups is for businesses to gain feedback on what the public really think of certain products and services in an informal, conversational setting. In my experience, these are most definitely a lot of fun, and they are very rewarding (both financially and personally).
To take part in focus groups, you need to contact and register with market research companies.
