Quick Ways To Make Money
In the future, we highly recommend looking into creating an emergency fund for yourself so that you will always have some extra cash laying around in need of dire situations like this one, but in the meantime, let’s discuss 10 ways that you can make quick money for yourself.
Sell your things to make money fast
One of the best ways to make money fast is to find things around the house of value and list them on websites such as Craigslist, LetGo, Poshmark for clothing, or even Ebay and Amazon. Whether you have a purse you no longer need or a mountain bike that you haven’t used in years, it’s time to say goodbye to those things so that you can make some extra cash quickly.
Find jobs on Craigslist and Taskrabbit
Craigslist and Taskrabbit are a great way to earn money quickly. There are plenty of one-time jobs that you can find to do on your local Craigslist and Taskrabbit apps.
The best part about Craigslist and gig jobs is that you can get paid upfront and that very same day. If you go to Craigslist, be sure to look for the gigs section. While there you can find jobs such as being a mover, a handyman, an event worker, someone to work at a parking lot during an event, or even a sign holder. Just browse the available gigs, find what works for you, and reach out saying that you are the right person for the gig and why.
Answer surveys online
Answering surveys online will not necessarily make you money fast, but if you start now, you can expect to receive your first check within a month.
Survey companies are free to join and use. You will earn money on the survey websites by signing up for as many as possible and answering the most amount of surveys as possible.
Rent out a room
Renting out one of the rooms in your house will not make you money right away, but after hearing what Kevin O’Leary (from Shark Tank) did, we think it’s genius. Instead of charging rent monthly, Kevin decided to charge his roommates weekly. So if you’re in need of quick cash, be sure to consider charging your roommates weekly to make sure that they are able to cough up the cash right away.
Walk dogs or pet sit and earn money quickly
People love their pets and are clearly willing to spend whatever they can to make sure that their pets are comfortable and happy. Because of this, there are countless jobs that you can do to make some quick hard cash and earn money quickly.
If you decide to pet sit and/or dog board, you may be able to make $50 per day to watch someone’s pet in your home. We highly recommend to check out Rover and Craigslist for dog walking and pet boarding gigs.
Move someone’s furniture for a quick way to make money
Moving is many people’s worst nightmares. If you are willing to move some heavy boxes and are willing to help transport those boxes, then we highly recommend moving someone’s furniture to earn some quick money. While it ranges on how much money you can earn by moving, we’ve seen many people make $35 to $50 per hour of moving.
To find moving gigs, we recommend checking out websites such as TaskRabbit or Craigslist to find these gigs.
Babysit and/or nanny for families
Parents of young ones are always looking for babysitters and nannies that they can trust. In fact, many parents are willing to pay top dollar for just watching their loved ones. Depending on where you live, parents are willing to spend anywhere from $10 per hour to $60 per hour in many areas. If you are gifted in the ability to clean the house, cook food, or even tutoring, you can charge the families for these added services as well.
Become someone’s assistant
There are thousands of people in need of assistance. Whether you want to be someone’s assistant in-person or to be a virtual assistant, it’s a great way to make money and not have any specific skill set. Most administrative jobs can be something such as handling their emails or even data entry.
Drive for Uber or Lyft
If you own your car and are able to drive people around in your spare time, we highly recommend looking into being a Lyft or Uber driver. Being a Lyft and Uber drivers allows you to drive during the hours most convenient to you. If you are interested in becoming an Uber driver, click this link to start making money as soon as possible!
Become a mystery shopper
Becoming a mystery shopper may very well be one of the most enjoyable ways to quickly make money. As a mystery shopper, you can be given the chance to make money while getting paid to eat at restaraunts and to go shopping.
While mystery shopping isn’t a get rich quick strategy, you can sign up for a number of mystery shopping companies today. If you don’t wish to use your own money to become a mystery shopper, you may want to also look into a phone call mystery shop where you would call stores and pretend to be a customer with questions. From there you would take notes on how the customer service representative handled your queries and you would report on those questions you asked them.
