With the tough economy and huge lose of jobs throughout the country I’ve decide to take some time today and give you some money making ideas to help you make it through the tough times.  So in this article I’m going to cover 5 ideas to make money, some of which I have done and still do to this day.

World Financial Group

The first of the good money making ideas is World Financial Group, also known as WFG.  WFG is a network marketing company that specializes in helping people with their financial needs.  They do everything from investments, life insurance, and annuities.

I worked with this company for 4 and a half years and the two biggest things I’ve learn while working for them was how to manage money, and secondly how to run a business.

It runs right around a $100 to join and you can work part time till you build up your income enough to switch over to a full time opportunity.  If you would like to learn more about this money making idea you can check out my review of World Financial Group here.

The Keyword Academy

Next up on the list of the top money making ideas is the The Keyword Academy.  This opportunity will show you how to set up your own website from scratch.  They will show you how to write great article content and build up strong rankings with in Google and other search engines and finally show you how to make money by using advertising programs such as Google Adsense.

The best thing about this opportunity is that they will show you how to do everything from writing the article to making the money.  This opportunity is also the least costly to get started.  With only a few bucks to buy a domain name, and some hosting space and you can be up and running.

I should also mention that this option may take some time to achieve but it can have some great financial rewards over time.  If you would like to learn more on The Keyword Academy click here.


The next make money idea to look into is Ebay.  If you have a bunch of stuff around your home that you need to get rid of this could be the perfect way to earn a few bucks on the side till you find that next job.  However if you don’t have your own products to sell that isn’t a problem either.  With sites like Doba who broker deals with some of the countries top companies like Nike, HP, and Black and Decker, you can sell virtually any product you want.

The great thing about Ebay is it’s very easy to get up and running within few hours and you can be earning money in no time flat.  On top of that with Doba you don’t have to buy or handle any of the products and they will be drop shipped right to your customers door.

However their may be some learning involved when getting started but with a little time and persistence it will get easier.  To learn more about the Ebay click here.

Elance And Textbroker

In this next part I going to cover two idea to make money that are very similar.  The first one is elance.  This is a site that offers all kinds of freelance computer rated jobs, these would be jobs such as computer programing, web design, to legal, and financial management.  The options here are almost endless.

The second option is a site called Textbroker.  This is a site that allows you to sign up and write articles for people  based on how good of a writer you are.  The typical writer will be paid around 2 cents to 5 cents per word.  So if you write a 500 word article and get paid 5 cents a word you would make $25.  Do this 10 times a day you could be earning a very healthy living.

The good thing about these jobs are that you will be able to earn money immediately.  All you have to do is set up a Paypal Account and your ready to go.  However if you don’t know much about computers this may not be for you.  If you would like to learn more about elance click here and if you would like to learn more about textbroker click here.


Finally, the last option to check out is Amway  You may have seen commercials about this company on TV.  Amway sells a variety of different products such as nutrition and wellness, to makeup, to bath and body, and even stuff for your home.  Getting started with Amway runs around $50 a year.

Their success is built on the fact that many of their independent business owners also use their products.  On top of that they also recruit people on a regular basis which allows their business owners to earn an even bigger income over time.

However this opportunity is for someone who isn’t looking to make money super fast because it will take some time build up and start your business however over time it can be very rewarding.  To learn more about Amway click here.

To close this article I should mention that all of these money making ideas may not be for you so I suggest you just pick one to start with and see if you like it first.  In the end doing something is always better than doing nothing at all, so get started today.
