Ease financial hardships; make money online

QMy girlfriend and I are going through financial hardships. She has been interested in making money online. She's been looking at get-paid-for-surveys ads. I've told her that most of these are not legitimate. If they paid what they claim, everyone would be doing it. Are there legitimate ways to make money online?

AFinancial hardship is a reality for many people today. I've been getting a lot of questions just like yours. People are looking to supplement their regular income. Some are looking for a new line of work.

You were right to warn your girlfriend about these ads. They often promise huge sums of money for minimal effort.

Chances are, someone makes money doing this. But it's doubtful it will be you. It's one of those sounds-too-good-to-be-true scenarios. There are plenty of job-related scams online. Check out this tip to learn how to spot them.

You're not out of luck. There are legitimate ways to make money online and at home. None of these are a license to print money. You won't get rich overnight. Like a real job, these will take work. But you may find something you love doing. Or, at least, you can make some extra cash.

Sell your talents

You can turn your skills and experience into extra work. Maybe your girlfriend is a quality writer. Maybe you have some programming experience. Or maybe you're just good at working with people.

There are freelance and part-time opportunities for these and much more. Many of them you can do right from home. You may be able to set your own hours and pay.

There are many sites that help connect your skills with employers. This tip has lots of details and links. You're sure to find something you're good at.

Work for yourself

You could also strike out on your own. You don't have to work for someone else to make money online.

One of the most obvious ways is to sell something. First, you need something to sell. You may already have something in mind. If not, I can help you find some products. Then, you'll need an online store. Thankfully, you don't have to make one by yourself. You can join major online marketplaces.

You or your girlfriend may have a special hobby or craft. You can make money off those as well. There are a number of outlets for musicians, artisans and photographers. Learn more about them in this tip. If you're into photography, look into stock photography as another option.

The staple of online money making is blogging. It's not easy to make a popular and successful blog. But it's far from impossible. You can do it. Just pick something you're passionate about. There are several ways to make money by blogging.

Get a better job

Financial trouble may mean it's time to look for another full-time job. Maybe you're not getting paid what you would like. The Web is a good place to look for a job. I have tips that will help.
