    I got nothing. No site, no CPA accounts, no adsense, no Facebook, Instagram or e-commerce site, dropshipping, really nothing setup.

    Must make the money online. (so mowing law, car washing, etc are out)

    I got $200-$300 and somewhat intermediate IM skills (minus coding).

    What are my options.

    (I'm a dude, so camwhoring is out)

    If you need money absolutely this week, maybe doing something offline would be your best bet, as nothing online is guaranteed.

    But if you have any skills, throw up some ads on services letting people know what you're able to do, and are willing to do. There are usually always people looking for virtual assistants.

    How about finding a bug on some reputed website? Websites like Twitter triage a valid bug in 1-2 days and pay instantly. You will get the payment in a week.

    FLIP.

    $200-$300 is a nice amount of money to start with; it can also work with $10, depends on the goods. If you need more capital to work with you can sell something you already own that you don't require, on Facebook/Craigslist/Gumtree/Ebay/etc.

    If you actually need some money fast, the offline flip game will probably be better for short term. You can find items for sale in your local area on classified ads sites or Facebook marketplace. You can find things at garage sales nearby or thrift stores too. If you don't have a car, find items for sale near you online, make offers and request the seller drops the goods off to you and you can still get some deals. Do online research to find what the product costs new in store, the demand, average price of used product in different conditions, etc. Buy low, sell higher - that's it. You can flip anything my friend. Smart phones, appliances, trading cards, bicycles, whatever you want that you can find a good deal for.

    The process is the same for online flipping. Buying digital goods such as social media accounts (fresh/aged/verified/with followers/revenue or no revenue), video game accounts (fresh/aged/high level), tradable in-game items (weapons/currency), and pretty much anything that can be traded; then reselling at a higher price, can be highly profitable once you get the hang of it. With online shit, you should aim to work with games/social media platforms/websites you have knowledge/experience with.

    Gary Vaynerchuk has a video that explains the process well:

    Other then reselling stuff, you could put your so called intermediate IM skills to work for someone else. If you have specific skills you can offer, apply for gigs on freelancing websites. If you just need asap short term money it probably won't be worth it as it takes a long time to get reviews and build a portfolio that good employers will want to see but you can advertise yourself on Reddit's /r/forhire and contact people hiring who need something that you can do for one time gigs. Based on your post I'm going to assume you don't have a skill that would be considered highly valuable nor a strong reputation in such industry, so I'd say you're probably better off using that $200-$300 and flipping digital (or physical) goods to start multiplying it.

    Agree with everything the prior post explained, with the caveat that flipping digital accounts for others is starting to get crowded as well. Your best bet is to quickly sell what digital goods you can at the beginning, while mnual creating a farm of 'aged' accounts that you will be able to sell in 6 months to a year. These accounts are more valuable since they are more tested or durable, more natural looking, or more documented (compare a stealth Paypal that was created this week using fake generator info, versus an aged stealth account with no holds that comes with documents, to survive a limitation).

    Maybe he's unable, we don't know the situation just from the 1st post.
    Anyways, you could try selling your online stuff. Accounts on social media, websites, blogs etc :)

    Just cause your a dood doesn’t mean Caming is out.. you think all those girls you see online are actually real? Maybe some sites but there a many out there that can still be spoofed with software.
    As for making money quickly Id say og ads and Instagram or Facebook. Little follow \ unfollow and you’ll prolly get a few bucks. Or you can start filling out some surveys
