Thinking about learning how to make money from? Here are three quick and easy suggestions for you
Passive income is the new normal.

Whatever your reason for wanting to make some money from home is, here are three quick and easy suggestions on how to make money fast via the Internet.
1. Online Surveys
There are lots of companies and sites that exchange online surveys for money. Many of these sites want you to sign up and provide some basic demographic information about yourself. Once they have that information, they will send you surveys to complete that line up with your particular demographic and you’ll be paid according to their guidelines. There are also sites like Swagbucks that allow you to take surveys immediately, instead of waiting to be chosen, and you can get paid in gift cards to retailers and vendors you use.
2. Start a Blog or Podcast
Make yourself a home on the internet if you have the gift of gab. Starting a blog or a podcast, or even a YouTube channel can be done fairly easily and pretty close to free. When you’re just starting you can choose the free route, which means that you wouldn’t have your own domain name (you’d have YourBlogTitle.nameofbloghost.com), and gain a little traction before purchasing hosting and domain rights. With podcasting, there may be a small upfront investment in equipment and software.
The key to blogging, vlogging, podcasting is being consistent. If you are consistently putting out information that is valuable and getting people’s attention and engagement, you can monetize your site in an extremely beneficial way. Sometimes a payment can come in the form of products and services. But you can command higher compensation the larger and more loyal your following.
3. Sell Personal Care Products
This one is at home, on the go and abroad. You can sell personal care products whenever and wherever you choose. There are plenty of options to choose from that allow you to make as much as you want. There’s Avon, Mary Kay, Young Living, DoTerra and plenty of others. Essentially, you are like a private contractor, so you have lots of flexibility and you are your own boss. Be sure to read the fine print carefully, as each has its own profit scale and reward system.
No matter the route you take, finding ways to stack a little extra cash is never a bad idea. Increasing your rainy-day fund, the amount of spending money every month or your retirement fund with small (or growing) streams of income can greatly benefit you. It can allow you the time and freedom that you need to be able to live the life that you want to live. Whether you’re looking for just an extra hundred bucks a month or a cool thousand to supplement your income, it is definitely possible.
