10- Make money doing almost anything
This is really fun and you can make money doing unbelievable and sometimes silly things. Fiverr is a website where people can buy and sell any kind of service for $5. You don’t believe what people actually pay for.
Basically you can earn money on Fiverr doing anything you can imagine from writing a song, video taping yourself singing a song, making a prank call, wearing a t-shirt with someone’s name on it to tweeting a special message to your followers, teaching someone how to do this or that, building a simple web page for someone, setting up a Facebook fan page and more.
For each sell you make, $1 goes to Fiverr as their commission and the rest ($4) goes to your pocket. Its all about promoting your service good and making it interesting.
There are people who are making a living offering to do crazy things for people. I myself use Fiverr and have my own Fiverr page where I offer services.
These are some really cool ways to make extra money online without having to work for hours upon hours.
However, you can’t really make a living doing these kind of work. Although, some people manage to do that on Fiverr. But, most of these methods aren’t going to help you quit your day job!
So, don’t kid yourself thinking that you are going to get rich doing this stuff. Just think of them as a few fun and creative ways to make money online.
