Recently someone gave me feedback about one of the ads on my blog. The feedback was very pertinent, saying that the ad looked “scammish” and gave a bad impression of my blog. The ad was about some easy way to make online $2000-$3000 a week.
Unfortunately we all know that there is no magic bullet to make this kind of money. However, I believe that there are a lot of real opportunities online to make a few bucks here and there. Again no shortcuts to becoming a millionaire, but realistic ways to make a bit of cash quickly.
So here are 10 ideas that you can use to get some pocket money easily.
