There are lots of ways to make money online, but many of them are not free. However, if you are prepared to look hard you will find that there are opportunities to make money for free online.

It can be good to look at websites where you can find jobs online. There are many of these and you are careful and read reviews first, you will be sure to find genuine sites. These sites will have employers stating jobs that they need doing and then potential employees can apply for those jobs. They may have to show their CV, give information about similar jobs they have done with examples of their work and state how much they would charge for the work. Then they may or may not get an offer of work. They may also be able to advertise their skills to attract potential employers. There are some really professional sites doing this and they will take commission on each job. However, there are also smaller sites, some that will take commission and some that will not, where you can pick up freelance or casual work.

Another way to make money online for free could be to sell items that you no longer need. If you sell them on some auction sites or similar you may have to pay to list them and again when they sell, but if you use a social media page then you may be able to list for free. It is worth lookinga t what sorts of things you have for sale and researching where people tend to sell them so that you have an idea of where the best place for you will be to sell.

It is possible to set up a free social media page and start a business selling goods or services from it. Although large companies tend to pay for advertising, it is possible to set up a page and get followers without doing this and some social media sites are better at sharing posts with all of your followers than others so it can be worth using a selection of them. Obviously if you sell goods, then you will have to buy them and that will cost you money, but if you are selling a service or a virtual item such as an ebook, software or app, then you will not need to pay out anything. However, you will need to produce the item or ensure that you have the skills required to provide the service offered.

Making money fast is tricky online as you will need to wait to be paid. However, it is possible to do work that will enable you to get paid quite quickly, although these are likely to be smaller jobs. It all depends on the type of work that you do, which will be determined by the skills that you have.  It is therefore worth doing a bit of research first and looking at money making forums and blogs to find out more about the best ways to make money online.
