[The EPIC List] 90 Awesome Ways to Help You Make Money Online - Even If You're Dead Broke

by xohaibx 44 replies
Alright, so I wanted to make this thread as resourceful as possible. There are many warriors who are still looking for proven ways to make money online without any upfront investment. That's exactly what prompted me to compile a list of all the free and LEGITIMATE methods of generating cash online.

I personally researched and carefully nitpicked the best websites to make sure that none of them turn out to be scammy or dubious. So if you're looking for stuff like 'get paid to surf, click, email, read, fill in a survey' - you won't find it in here.

This list is fresh and as authentic as it can get - all the sites mentioned are reputed.

      It depends on various factors since every writer isn't the same - but they all do pay.

      Exactly. It takes time, effort and patience. You will have to do things on your own no matter how much someone guides you.

      Making money online is NOT easy, but if you're willing to put in the needed hard work, you can definitely go places.

      • Many people got started with selling on Amazon by taking books off their own shelves and listing them. For some people this can net them hundreds of dollars, or you can ask friends/relatives if they have books they want to get rid of.

          Very true! Sometimes we don't realize the opportunities we are sitting on. It's all about taking that first leap of faith - everything falls in place later on.

            My how the above resonates with that resounding echo of... TRUTH!

            While I am enjoying the view...

            It almost appears there is no bottom in site!

            ...currently finding myself on edge financially, and that "leap of faith" has me seriously weighing some options on your list. If I can just put myself out there, take that first initial step, and offer up some services, I am confident things will fall into place.

            The hard part now, is knowing where/how I may be of the greatest benefit to others, and earn a few bucks in the process?

            It's quite easy to get absorbed in building my own sites, but until they start generating some income, it appears offering some services is the most the logical solution to fill in those gaps, and start bringing in some earnings.

            Unfortunately, and I'm sure several others have faced this issue; after putting in so much work, time, blood, sweat, and maybe even a few tears for some, it's hard to pull away from the projects and blueprints one has created for their own sites, and just do it.

            There comes a time to bury ones pride, before it buries us. I don't know about you gals/guys... but I'm not dead yet!

            My ego's a bit bruised perhaps, but to heck with it... "writing services anyone?"

            Thank You for the list Mustafa, very well organized and insightful. I am off to research, where I may be of the greatest use to another, and save my own @$$ in the process.

            Writing my way out of this could be a solution.:confused:

            All the Best,

            Art

            PS- Just noticed the "voice overs" option, which from what I have been told, there's this strange group of characters that reside within, some which are quite humoring...who knows, I could be doing cartoon voices before the week is out. That would be a trip!

              You know what?

              All through your post I noticed one thing that stands out - you are a fighter.

              Don't let this spirit of fighting die down. Ever.

      I'll start with selling my h.....errrr - just plasma . Not make much if I have to sell hair to make a few $'s!

      Great list with some interesting ideas.

      Exactly. It's important to understand that there is life beyond making a 'few quick bucks'. Sometimes it's about using your skills in the best possible way to actually make a living and establish a long term source of income.
