Probably one of the first things that comes to most people's minds when they think about making money online is selling on eBay. Just about anyone can find some items in their home that they can sell and easily make a couple hundred bucks. After you've sold everything in your house that you don't want you've pretty much got two options. You can start going around to garage sales and buy things that you think will sell on eBay at a higher price than you paid.
You next option would be to find multiple distributors or wholesalers that you can purchase brand new items from at a wholesale price. They majority of people that are making good money on ebay are using this tactic. There is a quite a bit of trial and error with this method as you just have to find out what works for you. Also be aware that the competition is fierce.
Make Money With A Personal Blog
There are thousands if not millions of people who have a personal blog that make a couple hundred bucks a month by putting advertising on their blog. Most people start out by placing Google Adsense ads on their blog. When someone clicks on the ad then Google give the blog owner money. It can be anywhere from a couple of cents to $40 or $50 for just one click.
A lot of people say that they wouldn't know what to write about if they had a blog but all you have to write about is what you are interested in. You don't even have to write about a specific hobby you could just write meanderings about anything you want from day to day. No doubt that there are probably hundreds if not thousands of people all over the world that would be interested in reading (and maybe clicking on your Adsense ads) about your thoughts and the things you are interested in.
Write Your Own Ebook
Another easy way to make money online is to write an ebook about a topic that you have knowledge of and sell it. You could find out a common problem that people have and are searching for a solution to and then write an ebook about how they can overcome their problem. the overture keyword tool at http://inventory.overture.com is a great place to do some free keyword research to find out what people are searching for.
Maybe you have a simple solution to help someone get rid of allergies, that would be a great topic that you could write an ebook on.

There are literally hundreds of millions of searches on the internet by people looking for quick solutions to their problems
These are some great ideas that just about anyone can use with very little money to make some extra money online.
