    Hi everyone. I am from Greece, where jobs are few, and I am searching ways to make a few money online. Not easy money, but more something like a part- time job. I mentioned that because I am willing to work hard (in a way).
    I would be happy with 20$ bucks/week.
    I am currently busy with web development, and trying to make profit out of ideas and maybe turn them into a startup but this is the long run (I am not alone on web development projects), so don't mention niche sites which involve affiliate . I prefer no investment at all.

    I have already tried to write articles on iwriter (already wrote an article), which I find it amusing (writing articles), but jobs for standard writers are bad-paid and the worse is that the projects are awful.

    After that I tried website user testing (I thought that I was at my thing so it would be more fun) and I registered on usertesting. The thing is that all "tests" are for android platforms. I am fine with that but my mobile phone disagrees and synchronization between my phone and my pc for recording, cannot be achieved. I followed all the instructions they send me but nothing happened.

    So, the experienced ones suggest me ways to achieve my goal. Please be specific and mention sites/ways that you have already tried.

    My field of studies is business administration (I have just graduated and looking forward to start master class on October) and my hobbies are sports (basketball), music, movies. Ask for more in case you need additional info.

    Thank you very much

    Hey mate, write a blog about Greece, all the places tourists should see, how to find cheap meals, cheap drinks, where the good clubs are ect...

    I'm going to come to Greece next year and want to know where I should go and how I can spend as little $$ as possible.

    Thanks for the answer.
    Problem is that something like these requires time to be profit, and advertisement (in other words money). I was talking about something with fixed price and instant money.
    Other problems is that what you want probably exists. I can guide you if you want :p

    Sorry dude but that does not and never will exist, if it did, everyone would be rich.

    Every Im method is going to take time and some capital investment.

    The easiest way to make money is selling a solution to someone's problem. What makes your solution stand out from others is a offer that is irresistible, something that overcomes objections.

    I don't think I asked for something crazy.
    First of all I am already trying also what you suggest (I have developed some ideas with a friend) but I am searching for something more instant.
    I mentioned 2 ways which are almost what I am searching for and they are not scams or waist of time.
    i. User testing (users are testing websites, apps etc)
    ii. Article writing (on iwriter)

    but I mentioned the reasons that I have trouble using them. So I was looking maybe for similar ways to what I mentioned, or even different platforms/sites (other article writing or user testing platforms)

    yeah, I know how you feel.

    I same with you, right now I really need money too I want instant method. but as I learn in here if want to make huge income we need invest money and time. next month I quit from my job and start to work from home and help my mother make bread so I put it in the school cafetaria and small shops.

    if you want something with fixed price you can try site like fiverr, freelancer, peopleperhour and etc.

    Actually you did.
    The only alternative to making money online is making money offline LOL.
    You want a J.O.B. that's online but offline. What?
    Did you see a Now Hiring sign on the forum that I have never seen?
