Times have been tough for many people financially over the past couple of years. Because of this many people are looking to make a little bit of extra money and looking to do it fast. I myself am one of those people and I have discovered a method by which a person can earn a quick buck that I'd like to talk about in this article. The thing about earning fast cash is that, if you have a legit way to do it, why not share it with everyone else, so that's what I plan to do.

Earn a quick buck

The fact of the matter is that there are not a lot of ways to earn money quickly that are legitimate. In most cases, if someone tells you that you can make money really fast that is probably because they are trying to sell you their money making secret and you are going to have to take out your wallet in order to find out what that secret is. The main thing about money making programs is that if you find one that is not a scam then you are probably not going to be able to make a lot of money from it. However, occasionally you will find a money making program that is legit and with which you can earn a fast buck with only a little bit of work.

Project Payday -- A method to quickly make money online

One method that I have used to make money quickly is called Project Payday. Perhaps you have heard of this program before, but in case you have not, I'd like to take a minute and explain how it works. Project Payday is a fairly simple program that teaches people how to use incentivized freebie websites to earn money for signing up for a free trial to a product. Basically, it is a kind of affiliate marketing program that works as follows:

A company wants to recruit people to try one of their products in the hopes that they will like it and become a paying customer. Said company then recruits person A to promote a free offer to other people and pays him a commission for each person that he can get to give their product a try. Then, on forums throughout the web, person A promotes these offers. All you have to do is sign up for a free trial and person A splits his commission with you. Project Payday is the name of the program that basically teaches you the ropes of how to do this kind of a deal.

Now, I have to tell you that this is totally legit and there is no cost to sign up. I did this myself and made about $100 in an afternoon. But, it is really only good for a short while (otherwise I would still be doing it) because there are only so many of these offers going on at any one time, and once you have signed up for one once, you can not sign up for it again.

In order to sign up for the free trials you will have to give out your credit card information and then call and cancel the offer before the trial runs out, otherwise you have to pay for the product. But this isn't really a problem as there is a 1-800 number for each company's offer. Now, with Project Payday, you are not going to be able to get rich, but it is a legitimate way for a person to earn a quick buck if they need some fast cash.
