Being a Brand Ambassador

What is a brand ambassador?  It is a person whom a company chooses as their spokesperson to represent their brand, promote their products, review their products, recommend them to others and so forth.  Many brand ambassadors get compensation as well as freebies (on certain occasions) to spread the word about their company or business.  It is an easy way to make money with very little effort because many of the companies will provide you with the information, materials and content to share with your audience either online or offline.  Materials could be in the form of banners to put on your automobile, logos and other content to share on your blog, sponsored links to promote on Twitter, Facebook or other social media platforms.  Some companies that look for brand ambassadors are listed below.

Selling your Used Items

There are several ways that you can make money without really trying by doing a little bit of spring cleaning.  Are there any used items around your home that you are no longer using, wearing or reading?  If so, there is literally free money lying around your home.  Here are some sites that you can use to will pay you for your used clothes, books and so forth.

Trying Free Apps

Feature Points is a great site that will give you cash just to try 100% completely free apps.  You will never have to purchase another app again and you can also get cash just for checking out the latest apps.


Use Fiverr to your advantage and come up with a service that you would like to offer to others online in exchange for just $5!  What could you offer?  You could offer to comment on other people’s blogs or forums, share their link on social media, make a video testimonial, get them referrals, review their website, mention or recommend their product online, answer a question and any other random thing you can come up with.  Make sure that your gigs stand out from others by offering something they don’t or some extras to get more sales on Fiverr.

Referring your Friends

This by far is probably one of the more easier ways to make money online with very little effort.  If you have a lot of friends, connections, are a blogger with a lot of visitors, have a presence on social media you can encourage your friends and followers to sign up for things and make a commission.  A lot of survey sites will pay you cash upfront to refer others.  Check out a list of survey sites that will pay you and your friends to participate and complete online surveys at Mad Cash Survey.

Sell Stuff that you get for Free

Make sure that you check Craigslist periodically because they have a section of free items that people giveaway all the time.  All you have to do is to pick up the item(s).  You can sometimes get free furniture, exercise equipment, clothes, play sets, toys and more.  Take those items especially if it is a piece of furniture and give it a fresh coat of paint to sell on Ebay, a virtual yard sale, on social media, your blog and so on.

Mystery Shopping

Get easy money without really trying by being a mystery shopper.  There are a lot of companies that need you to evaluate various businesses around your area either by physically visiting the location itself or through phone calls.  Here are some companies that will pay you to do this below.

Shopping Online

Many of you probably also use the Internet to make purchases online at stores like Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Bath & Body Works and many others.  You can get paid to shop online by going through sites like Ebates or Mr. Rebates.  It is free to use and easy to get started.  All you have to do is to make sure that you sign up, be logged into your account and go to either Ebates or Mr. Rebates and start shopping online as you normally would.  You get cash back for every online purchase.  There are no catches or fees involved.  Checks come periodically in the mail.  Sign up Ebates or Mr. Rebates or both today!

Listening to Music

Music Xray is probably one of my favorites ways to make money online without even trying.  You simply listen to new music from up and coming artists for just 30 seconds and you will get $0.10 for every song you listen to.  It doesn’t get much easier than that.  Slicethepie also will pay you to listen to music but you will have to do so for 90 seconds and include a short, detailed review.  Find out how to write a good review for Slicethepie here.

Smartphone Apps

There are literally thousands off apps that you could put on your smartphone and other mobile devices.  Why not use the apps that will pay you cash just to view ads, scan a receipt, unlock your phone, give your opinion and more.  You can find a list of smartphone apps that pay cash here.

YouTube channel

Last but not least is YouTube.  Practically anyone can obtain a YouTube channel and become a partner and so can you.  But what if you don’t want to put a lot of time and effort into making those videos.  There is a way to get around this by making videos about your pet(s) doing funny things, playing video games, or even giving your opinions or updates on the latest celebrity news.

These are just a few ideas that you can try to make money online without really trying.  What have you done or are doing already to make money easily online?  Leave me your comments below.
