How To Make 200 Dollars Fast
1. Create A Printable
Do research to find a problem that a lot of people are struggling with. Solve that problem with a printable. Make it an easy-to-use printable but with all the details.
Use Canva for Free to make your printable pretty and professional.
Set your price. List it on Etsy. You can also sell it on your blog if you have one.
However, if you do not have that many followers yet, focus on listing it on Etsy for better exposure.
Promote your printable on social media, to friends, etc, on your blog (if you have one) using your link.
$2/printable x 100 copies = $200 (before Etsy fees)
2. Create a Course
Another way to make $200 is to create a course on a topic of your expertise. The course can consist of 5-6 short videos, notes, or downloadable handouts.
You can create a FREE teachable account and put the course on there. You can sell the course for $29. Work on promoting it on social media and on your blog if you have.
$29 x 7 course sales = $203 (before teachable fees)
3. Write for a paid contributor site
Writing can get you the cash you need quickly by writing four 500-600 word posts and submit them to a contributor site.
$50 x 4 = $400
4. Create a printable binder
Create a printable binder and sell it on Gumroad for $25. Promote it on your blog, to your email list, and on your social media.
I created the Ultimate Finance Organizer and listed it on Gumroad and still making me money now.
$25 x 4 = $200 (before Gumroad fees)
5. Become an affiliate for bundle sales
The Ultimate Bundles is a great way to make extra cash. They have great products that are so easy to sell.
Even if you don’t have a resource in the sale, you can become an affiliate for Ultimate Bundles and promote their products.
Whenever someone clicks through your link and makes a purchase, you can make a % per sale.
$20 x 10 bundles = $200 (approx. different sales have different % commissions)
6. Sell Stock Photos
If you have a skilled eye for photography, you can submit these photos to a stock photo site like Shutterstock.
You can submit 10 photos and get paid every time someone downloads them. Shutterstock is currently paying 15 to 38 cents per download.
$0.35 x 10 photos=$3.50
$3.50 x 58 downloads = $203 (based approximately on your earning tier)
7. Join A Cashback Program And Refer Your Friends
Since you love saving money, sign up for a cashback program like Rakuten, where you get cash back every time you shop through their portal.
You will not only get an instant $20 just signing up, you will also get paid $20 for every person you refer who will sign up.
$20 x 10 = $200

8. Sign Up For Surveys
Although answering surveys will take you a while to get to $200, you can speed it by earning through referrals.
Here are the best survey sites and saving money sites that pay you to refer:
9. Become an affiliate for a product you use
If there are products that you use and love, you can make money promoting it. Apply as an affiliate and start promoting.
When someone clicks through your link and makes a purchase or signs up, you will earn a commission.
Shareasale is a good one to start with because they pay you $50 for every referral you make who signs up.
$50 x 4 = $200
10. Become an affiliate for someone’s courses
Another way to make $200 if you do not have your own product is to sign up as an affiliate for someone’s course.
If you have a lot of courses to choose from, pick one course to promote each month. Your earnings will depend on the price of the product, the pricier it is, the lesser you have to sell.
Most course creators pay you 30-40% commission.
Here are some of the courses I love promoting because they are not only very useful to me but also pays well:
Making Sense Of Affiliate Marketing – The course that taught me the step by step guide on how to start affiliate marketing the right way.
Blog By Number – The course that walked me through how to start a profitable blog from scratch,
Pinteresting Strategies – The course that taught me actionable proven tips on how to use Pinterest to grow my blog traffic, despite Pinterest’s ever-changing algorithm.
Brand Your Business – This course helped me establish my brand and how to be consistent with it.
Legal Bundle – If you do not want to spend thousands hiring a lawyer to make sure you cross your t’s and dot your i’s in your business, you should invest in this course.
11. Create and monetize detailed how-to blog posts
Here is another great way to make money if you have a blog. Create three detailed how-to blog posts or step-by-step instruction guides to something people want to know how to do.
Then you will include affiliate links to each of the ingredients, materials needed, etc.
Promote the posts and when someone makes a purchase through your link, you’ll get a commission.
For example, if you were promoting an Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus Pressure Cooker 9 in 1 for $119.95, you’ll make a 3% commission.
56 x $3.6 (approx amazon revenue) = $201
The great thing about Amazon is your customer don’t have to buy the product that you recommended for you to earn the commission.
If they clicked on your Instant pot but ended up buying a grill instead, you will still get a commission from the grill that they bought.
12. Open a new checking account
One great way to make 200 dollars fast with very minimal effort is to open a new checking account.
This bank will pay you to $200 just for opening a new checking account.
1 x $200 = $200
You can double it up by having your significant other sign up as well.
13. Sell Your Services On Fiverr
If you have a skill in logo design, writing, proofreading, and etc, sign up for Fiverr and sell your services.
Small businesses are hiring freelancers every single day therefore you can make your $200 fast.
You can offer to write a 1000-word-article for $25.
$25 x 8 = $200 (before Fiverr fees)
14. Sell A Sponsored Tweet
If you have a good following on Twitter then you can sell sponsored tweets. I was able to make $25 for just single sponsored tweet, which is not bad.
You can check out IZEA, Massive Sway, and Activate for opportunities.
$25 x 8 = $200
15. Save $200 By Negotiation your Bills
Saving money is as important as making money. By negotiating your bills, you’ll find that you can save $200 or more.
If you are like me, who is not comfortable with negotiation, check out Trim or Billcutterz. They will negotiate your bills for you and even cancel forgotten subscriptions.
The best part is you do not pay them if they were not successful in saving you money.
