We have all been in a money crunch.
Although we would like to not worry about money, it is simply a part of life.
Two years ago, I lost my job.
Although I looked for other work, I couldn’t seem to find the right employer. Eventually, all the money I had saved was gone. I soon found myself sleeping on a friend’s couch with a very uncertain future.
Bills began to pile up, and I found myself in a constant state of depression and fearfulness.
Sound familiar, yet?
As my entire world was crumbling, I stumbled across something that completely changed my life. Within a couple of weeks, I had earned over $1,000.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, “He can’t be serious, can he?” Well, let me tell you, this is not a joke.
If you can’t seem to dig yourself out of the financial hole you may be in; you are in the right place. I am about to show you five ways to make $1,000 fast.
What You Will Need to Follow this Step-By-Step Guide:
- A computer
- An Internet connection
- Free time
1. Become a Web Designer
Are you aware that web developers can make thousands of dollars for basic projects? Obviously, if you don’t have any web design skills, this may not be the best method for you; however, if you have a lot of free time, it is a skill that can quickly be learned.
Skills in Photoshop, logo design and video editing are also in HUGE demand.
In a time where there is so much content on the Internet, it is hard to not find work as a designer or editor.
If you lack skills in these areas, don’t immediately dismiss this idea. With a few hours of free time and a stable Internet connection, you can learn most of these skills by watching videos on YouTube! Websites such as Envato also offer various free tutorials.
Once you have established the skills you need, you can find all kinds of work on freelance websites such as Freelancer.
I am currently making nearly $600 a week for basic logo designs. Keep in mind; I had no design experience beforehand.
2. Become an Online Tutor
Do you enjoy teaching others? Could you teach someone a new language? If so, becoming an online tutor may be the perfect option for you.
As someone who is fluent in English, I had the opportunity to teach several students from Japan how to speak in my native language. I made nearly $20 an hour for simply speaking in English. Not to mention, I got to help individuals I had never met before learn an entirely new language. It was an enriching experience.
If you aren’t comfortable teaching another language, there are also various other tutoring jobs in subjects such as science, math, and even history. If you are proficient in any of those areas, you could earn quite a bit of extra money.
Apps such as Skooli offer the perfect platform for an online tutor.
3. Become a Freelance Writer
If you have excellent English and grammar skills, this will most likely be the best method for you.
As I mentioned earlier, the Internet is always in need of content. As a result, you will always be able to find work as a freelance writer.
With a little free time, some research, and a computer, you could be on your way to earning a large sum of money.
Freelance writers can make a significant amount of income. Experienced writers can make anywhere from $40-50 an hour. I make upwards of $2,500 a month simply for writing in my spare time.
To find work as a freelance writer, you can apply for jobs on various freelance websites such as Upwork. You can also reach to local businesses who may need a writing service.
4. Become a Successful Blogger
Blogging is by far the most complicated method on this list; however, it is also the most rewarding. To become a successful blogger, you must be both patient and persistent. If you need money quickly, the previous methods will suit you better.
If you elect to start a blog, it is vital you choose a topic that interests you. If you pick a topic simply because it is popular, you will find that the work required to create a successful blog becomes incredibly tedious. Enjoying the time you spend on your blog is essential. If you find your blog boring, your audience will as well.
Once you begin to generate traffic, you can leverage your blog into affiliate sales or various advertising networks such as Google AdSense to monetize.
5. Borrow Money Online
If you are really in a money crunch, a payday loan may be your best bet. Online lenders have made a super easy way to borrow money instantly.
Essentially, a payday loan is an advance on your wages. Except, you don’t have to annoy the boss.
Keep in mind: payday loans have a high interest rate; however, they are a great option for someone who may need the money for an unexpected bill or unforeseen repair.
