If you’re looking for proven, legitimate and sustainable ways to earn extra money — anywhere from a few extra bucks a month, to hundreds or even thousands of dollars to supplement or replace your primary income stream — then here are three surprisingly easy possibilities that could be exactly what you’re looking for.
Amazingly Easy Ways to Earn Extra Money
#1. Participate in Market Research Studies
Businesses (and marketing agencies on their behalf) are ready, willing and able to pay people for doing something that most of us enjoy doing anyway: sharing our views on various products and services.
You can participate in focus groups, and in some cases your travel costs will be covered. Or if you’d prefer to work from home, you can participate in online surveys, as well as “customer communities” (which are like virtual focus groups that last for a few weeks or even a few months).
#2. Wrap Your Car
A growing number of businesses want to take advantage of mobile advertising. Their problem? They don’t have a large enough fleet of vehicles, and buying new cars (or vans, trucks, etc.) just to advertise doesn’t make financial sense. Fortunately, there’s where you enter the picture!
You can plug into the mobile marketing machine by having your vehicle wrapped. The business (or marketing agency) will pay for everything, including installation. Your task is simply to drive the minimum required number of miles (e.g. 100 miles/week) in a designated area (e.g. your city or county). It’s easy money, and as a bonus keep in mind that a vehicle wrap will protect your car’s original paint and finish!
#3. Help the Search Engines
While search engines usually get things right, there are many times when they miss the mark — either by a little, or sometimes by a significant margin. That’s where you can lend a hand and earn some money.
Simply sign up to help search engines (e.g. Google, Bing and Yahoo) research and verify search results for a wide array of terms like large format digital printing or small business loan agreements. You can set your own schedule, and can work from home, the library, your favorite coffee shop — basically anywhere that you can connect to the web. It’s a great way to boost your income, and you’ll learn a lot of interesting stuff at the same time.
The Bottom Line
The web is full of “get rich quick” schemes that, unfortunately, only make the fraudsters behind them rich — and their victims poorer.
Thankfully, there are proven, legitimate, safe and sustainable ways to make more money. Give any or all of the above options a try, and start earning extra money sooner and easier than you think!
