Lately, I've started taking quite a bit of interest in Quora community and I just love how straight forward questions that people ask. It's a fabulous community for getting ideas to serve your readers. A person their asked this very question that I planned to write about here on bloggingehow so that more of our youngsters could get benefited.
This won't be a long posts, rather I'll stick to the core and jot down couple of actionable strategies you can implement and start seeing results.
So that actual question was:
Let's say that I want to earn a little extra $100-200 per month from the Internet. What are the options that I have to accomplish that?
Options that you have to earn 100-200$ online
The options that you would consider would depend on the time you have and the your working temperament.
#1 You could opt for freelancing
The best option to get started is Fiverr! Fiverr is taking over the freelancing world pretty fast compared to its competitors. At Fiverr, you sell your skills and time for 5$ per task that you do.
This is the minimum you can charge and there is no limit to your growth once your profile becomes huge.
So just ask your self, what skills do you have. If you don't have ideas as to what you can or should do, you can visit fiverr's marketplace and see what sort of skills people are offering to their potential clients.
It blows my mind how creative people are when it comes to coming up with more skills to offer.
Learn from the best ones in the community and it should get you on the track fast. Notice what tactics the best sellers are utilizing and then follow that path.
You could offer translation skills in your native language and it's one of the easiest thing as everybody has a solid grip on their native language.
You could do that for 3-4 hours a day and it should get your 10-20$ a day with 5$ per client (minimum). This means you can exceed the limit of 200$ by a huge margin!
Making 100-200$ online is not big of deal now days. It just needs your attention and the fire in the belly.
Just today, I published my answer to a question on Quora that was: Could you make $2000 a month as a full-time blogger?
You can read my reply here: My Answer to 2000$ a month question.
As with everything in life there comes a challenge. On Fiverr, the competition is pretty high and you would need to put in your all mind and effort to stand out of the crowd to attract the clients. You can either put more value to your gig by adding bonus features or you could compromise on the rate.
Bonus features look something like that I have often see in logo or other art work gigs:
As a bonus, I'll also provide a .psd (photoshop) file.This puts extra value to your offerings.

#2 Stepping In a High CPC Market and Starting a blog
Even though blogging is a long term business and you get to see the rewards slowly, you can still research on the highest payment Google AdSense keywords and the niches that have the highest CPC (Cost per click for the ads).
You can target a long tail keyword in such profitable niches and start publishing articles daily. With in 30 days you'll have about 30 articles published.
If these articles portray authority and are well written both for readers and search engines, you'll start seeing traffic. If a single click can give you 50$ plus, you can calculate where this is going...
Top 20 Highest Paying Google AdSense Keywords Of 2012-Be Rich!
If you publish one post a day, and it attracts 50 visitors daily and you publish 30 posts in your first month, you get 1500 visitors per month. Generally, the average click through rate for AdSense Ads are around 0.5% to 1-2% if your niche is targeting less techie people.
As techie people don't really click on the ads and they spot them well.
So with 0.5%, you get about 7 clicks in a month, which is pretty less and I have just put that down to give you an idea of the opportunity that we have.
With 7 clicks, if each click costs 30-50$, your goal of earning 200$ plus gets easily full filled.
It's a great idea for students to earn a little bit of extra pocket money and it works!
The thing is, average day Internet user sees this 'online money making' world as a scam. They never did their research.
Just ask your self, if it was that much of a scam, why would there be millions of websites earning fortunes online! Why did you had Internet grown so much. Why would people invest so much of their time online?
Its such a lucrative industry which will online expand in the future.!
Hope this post helps you out to bag those extra dollars as pocket money.
Till next time, take care fellows,
