In this post, you will read how to make money in an hour or less. While there are many ways to achieve that, I include a few ideas that can work for everyone. You can earn from a few cents to hundreds of dollars depending on the tasks you will choose.
1. Online surveys
The easiest way to make money on the internet is by completing online surveys. They take a few 20-30 minutes on average and pay $0.5-$1. There are many survey websites but I prefer GPT (get paid to) websites because they include offers and other ways to earn money.
For example, you can take a look at Swagbucks and ClixSense. They are free and include many opportunities for offers and surveys. In the same category with online surveys are any other side income websites. You can get paid to click ads, test websites, download apps, and more.
Also, many of these websites have a sign up bonus. It’s possible to earn a few dollars just by creating a new account. However, you will not be able to cash out yet. They have some requirements.
Here is a complete list of GPT websites.
2. Quick Jobs On Craiglist Or Fiverr
They are two different platforms but you can use both of them to find some gigs for extra money. You need some skills to find jobs in these places. For example, if you can write simple articles, go to apply for writing jobs on these websites.
Craiglist is an easy option. Just visit the website, and search for jobs relevant to your skills and interests. It can take less than an hour to find a job but in some cases, you must wait for the other person to respond. The actual work and research can be less than an hour when you search for simple tasks.
On Fiverr, you need to create a gig. You just describe what you can do and how much you want to get paid. For simple tasks like writing an article or creating a logo, you can start at $5 that is the minimum. Then, you can go to the seller’s requests and apply for jobs using your gigs.
At the same time, you can promote your gig on social media or forums. It’s possible to complete your first gig in one hour but most people wait a little longer. Lastly, you can use these websites to resell services and not doing any work at all. You can get a job on Craiglist and outsource it on Fiverr.
Also, you can outsource your Fiverr gigs on other platforms as well. I have written a guide on how to make money with Fiverr and Writer. It sounds crazy but it takes only a few minutes of your time to make some extra money with services on the internet.
3. Micro Jobs
In this category, I include very simple jobs that take only a few minutes. They can pay for a few cents to a few dollars. There are some websites that people request for specific tasks to be completed and set a reward for each task. Next, workers complete them and earn the reward.
There are some popular websites with micro jobs. I suggest taking a look at Amazon Mechanical Turk. It’s free and you can join with your Amazon account.
For another alternative, ClixSense includes micro jobs and not only surveys. Many people earn hundreds of dollars per month on with micro-jobs. However, it takes a lot of work to reach these numbers. If you start working now, you can earn a few dollars in one hour depending on the tasks and the rewards.
4. Sell On eBay
If you have any items, clothes, books that you don’t need anymore, you can sell then very fast on eBay. I mention eBay because I believe it’s very easy to create an account and create a listing but other marketplaces can work for you as well.
If the products have some value and you set a fair price for the buyer, you can sell it fast. You can always share your listing on social media or contact a few friends to share it. It could increase the views and the chances to sell it faster.
5. Share Your Affiliate Links To Social Media
If you have some followers on social media, you can promote a product relevant to their interests and earn a commission. Affiliate marketing is the process of promoting other people’s products and make money per sale. It’s easy and free to join an affiliate network, grab your links, and posted on your social media accounts.
Big online companies have affiliate programs like Amazon and eBay while you can join affiliate networks like Clickbank. There is no guarantee that you will earn money here. You may share you links many times before making your first sale but it takes only a few minutes each time.
Of course, I don’t recommend spamming. You need to write a few words about the product and make sure it’s worth the money of your followers. It would be better to suggest a product that you have already used and you know that it can be helpful for other people too.
Another alternative is to use forums or websites like Quora. You just need to answer a few questions and help people on topics you already. Then you can add your links (check the rules of each forum first) and make commissions through affiliate sales. It’s a very easy and effective business model that can work for everyone.
6. Affiliate marketing with paid traffic
This is another affiliate marketing strategy. The fastest way to put some ads on the internet and get traffic is solo ads.
You need three things to get started:
All these three steps are easy. Clickbank is an affiliate network that you will use to find a product. Udimi is an online marketplace that you can use to buy solo ads. The first step is to go to Clickbank’s marketplace. Choose a product from the internet marketing niche or the health niche.
You want a product with high gravity, an affiliate page, and check some reviews to make sure that is legit. On the affiliate page, you will see some email swipes. These are pre-written emails that you can use for free on your campaigns.
Choose one of the email swipes, get your affiliate links and go to Udimi.
Next, you want to find a good seller on Udimi. The sellers have feedback from other members and enough information to find a good one. Place your order and add your email with the affiliate links. The seller will start sending this email to his list shortly. You pay per click. Usually, 40-50 dollars per 100 clicks is a normal price.
The benefit of this strategy is that you can make more money than the other alternatives on this list and you can do it really fast after the seller starts sending traffic. The problem is that there is always a risk and can lose your initial investment. So, make sure that you can afford to lose some money or start with the other alternatives.
7. Cashback Websites
Getting cashback for shopping is a great way to save money. It is not about earning money but at the end of the day, you will have more money in your pocket.
The good news is that you can get cashback for many products and different online retailers like Amazon and eBay. However, it will not work with every product.
The best way to get these offers is to join cashback websites. Two popular choices are Mr. Rebates and Ebates. They include hundreds of options and you can save a lot of money in the long run. Also, there are cashback opportunities on GPT websites that are mentioned at the beginning of the post.
You do not have to pay money to join these sites. They are free and have many members who use them for years.
As you can see, there are many ways to make money in one hour. Also, you can be creative and figure out many variations of these ways. If you have never made any money on the internet, you should start with the easiest possible ways. For example, you can make a few dollars on surveys just to see by yourself that is real.
However, most of these ways are good to earn some extra dollars in your free time. But the earning potential is low. For a full-time income, you can read about the last ones. Affiliate marketing is a real online business. If you are serious and patient, you can achieve great results.
