    OR not so quick. Most of these most likely have been posted before on here, but I'm kind of just bringing them up again to help those of you out who are needing money for domains, hosting, or whatever. I know there are methods on here where you need no money at all to start, but I think having SOME money to put towards your work helps. Also, I know some of these may be frowned upon, but hey this isn't full time money making methods. Just ways to make a few dollars.

    1. mturk (US only) - I used to work on here, so I can personally say it's a good way to make extra money on the side to put towards your main projects. I made over $8k on here (in the 2 years I did it on the side), so if any of you are from the US and need any help with this, I would be happy to help. Keep in mind when you first start, there's a 10 day probation so you won't get your money until after your first 10 days. After that, you can withdraw every day (unless things have changed. I haven't done this in a while). The work consists of tagging images, surveys, categorizing tweets, etc. Really easy stuff anyone can do. Also, you must be 18+.

    2. Clickworker - This one is kind of like mturk, but is open to workers worldwide. I don't have much experience with this one. I signed up a while back and probably made like 3 bucks. Go on google and search "clickworker guides" and I'm positive you will find all the help you need to get started on here.

    3. Textbroker - This is a website where you write articles for clients. It's a good one that pays OK depending on what level you are. There are 5 levels, 1 being the lowest. from what i remember, when you register, you do a test article and they choose your level from that test article). I was at level 4 and got about 1.5 cents per word. The pay weekly through paypal. You just have to have $10 in your account which is easy to get. DO not submit shitty articles or your level will drop. There are online spell/grammar checkers you can use. or hell, just outsource the work (but of course you will need a little money to outsource and this is to help people with no startup money). Get familiar with mturk and textbroker, and you can start outsourcing your work from textbroker by posting it on mturk. There are workers willing to write articles for half of the pay you're getting. or at least there was when I did it. There are ways to find decent workers on mturk so you're not receiving shitty work. There are a lot of article writing sites. Sign up for them and outsource the work (definitely doesnt have to be mturk). I'm sure this isn't anything you haven't heard before

    4. Survey sites - Here's a list of some of the legit ones - Pinecone Research, Paid Viewpoint, Opinion Outpost, Tellwut, E-Poll, YourWord, Quest Mindshare, Quest Mindshare, Ipsos I-Say, and MySurvey. I think you have to qualify for surveys on a lot of these, so I would say the best way to go about this is to sign up for all of them.

    And.. here's a list of other sites to help you make a little extra money for your main projects.. (most of these should be legit. I checked multiple blogs/sites that I actually trust and used to use for help when I needed extra money)

    Swagbucks
    InstaGC
    Gifthulk
    Bing Rewards
    Perk
    Paidverts
    Fiverr
    Gigbucks
    SEO Clerks
    taskarmy​
    Phone Apps
    Perk TV
    Npolls
    Instant Rewards
    Jingit
    Directly
    Data Entry
    Virtual Bee
    SigTracker
    Writing Sites
    Article Document
    TextMaster
    Internet Brands
    Love to Know
    Demand Media
    Hire Writers
    Search Engine Evaluation (the pay for these are decent, but if you're looking for quick money, this may not be the way. You have to study and take tests to get in with these. I think the work consists of rating search queries)
    LionBridge
    Appen (Butler Hill)
    Leapforce


    There's a lot more I didn't name, but kind of just wanted to post something quick to help some of you out. I'm sure there has to be something on here to help you make a quick buck or 2. Feel free to ask questions about any of this stuff. I'm sure I can easily find some info on whatever you need. Before I got a job and discovered IM, I only worked online doing these type of things. I have a lot of resources.
