How to Make $200 a Day (20 Ideas From Our Team!)

Do you know how to make 200 dollars in one day? But wait, why do you want to know that?

Read on.

Studies show that Americans have an average of only $4,500 in their savings accounts.

[On the note of savings, now is an excellent time to add spare cash to savings accounts due to current high interest rates – this is like making free money].

If you can figure out how to make 200 dollars fast in one day this issue can be stopped.

Many people don’t like to think about emergency planning, but setting aside savings for these will make life easier – I promise.

There are ways to make money quickly and legitimately.

My team has listed 20 ideas to make extra money below.

Sidenote: if you need accountability and would like a step-by-step process for building your new online business, you need something like a business challenge that can help you along.

Many of these ways will not make $200 of extra money without learning some new skills and maybe even investing a few dollars.

But yes, all of these projects or jobs can eventually bring 200 dollars per day.

Let’s get going.

How To Make 200 Dollars In One Day

Be An Online Tutor

Don’t forget that we live in a world of about 8 billion people.

So people all around the world are looking to learn the language that you know.

Whether it’s English, Japanese, Spanish, Chinese, or Arabic, some students would love to have you as a teacher.

One of the significant aspects of becoming a tutor is that you can work on a flexible schedule and work remotely. For me, any opportunity that I look at must meet the criteria of being done remotely.

If this might be a good fit for you, connect with a company like Preply and get going with one of their many available tutoring jobs.

Start A Blog

Being a blogger myself, I believe blogging is the most viable way of making money if you are looking to earn from the comfort of your home. 

It does require an investment of time, some of your extra cash, and a lot of hard work.

But if you treat your blog as a business it has the potential to generate more than $200 per day on its own (my blog projects do!)

If you’d like a bit more info on blogging for extra money, keep reading.

Otherwise, scroll down to the next section!

How does a blog make you money?

If you’d like to know more, I have an article showing how much it costs to start and run a blog.

What investment is required to start a blog?

The two essential expenses of starting a blog are: 

  • Domain – You can get it through any domain provider like Namecheap for under $20/ year (I also love Porkbun)
  • Hosting – I recommend Bluehost for beginners as it can cost you as little as $3 or $4 a month

Both of these can be acquired for under $75 for one full year. 

Simple steps to launch a blog:

1- Perform keyword research and choose your niche.

2- Acquire a domain and hosting using Bluehost.

2- Choose your theme. We recommend and use Divi. (as of early 2023, we now use GeneratePress).

3- Install WordPress and design a basic website.

4- Write your first blog post.

5- Add affiliate links to your favorite programs (whether Fiverr, Canva, or any other – I’ve got a list of 35+ here.)

6- Drive traffic through SEO and social media. Use tools to schedule social media posts.

7- Guest blog to gain backlinks and raise domain authority.

8- Get ranked on Google to get organic traffic and increase your affiliate conversions.

List An Extra Room Of Your House On Airbnb

how to make my airbnb stand out

Do you have a room/basement in your house which is not in use? Try renting it out at Airbnb.

At Airbnb, you decide when to make your space available and at what price.

Listing is free, and you can individually approve potential guests.

You don’t have to deal with payments, as the guest will pay upfront.

Airbnb will keep a booking fee as its share and will transfer you the rest.

You can also earn with Airbnb even if you don’t own a property. 

Become an Airbnb manager: As a manager, you have to manage all aspects of the property.

You will reply to guest messages, check guests in, top-up amenities, and turn the property over after each booking.

As a managing partner, you can receive anywhere between 10% to 20% of each booking.

And if you manage multiple properties, you can easily earn $200 per day.

Create An Online Course

There are countless skills that can be monetized in the form of online courses.

We think teaching online is a great way to make extra money.

Invest In Stocks With Robinhood

Making money by investing in stocks requires a long-term commitment, but here is the good news.

There is an investing app called Robinhood that gives you free stock if you use my referral link (no strings attached) when you sign up.

Earn Bonus Money From Apps 

what is ebates

Whether it be a side hustle, part-time job, or just something to do in your spare time, there are dozens of mobile apps out there made for supplemental income.

These apps won’t get you rich. But you can still put some cash in your pocket by performing pretty simple tasks from the palm of your hand.

a. Rakuten (formerly Ebates – see this article I wrote for more info) – rewards you with cash back from shopping. 

More than 2,500 stores are partnered with this platform. Those stores pay Rakuten a commission for referrals and Rakuten shares that commission with its users in the form of cashback.

b. Swagbucks- Swagbucks offers rewards points for shopping online, browsing the web, answering surveys, and watching entertaining videos. All of this can be facilitated through the mobile app.

You can redeem Swagbucks points for gift cards or get cashback to your PayPal account.

Many cards offer huge bonuses when you sign up for a credit card with them.

Some cards provide redeemable points, miles, or plain cash, just for signing up.

Bonuses will vary based on the type of credit card you choose.

Resell High Ticket Items Online

“How can I make 200 fast?”

This is it!

Reselling is one of the fastest ways to make $200 in one day, and the best way to resell items is to first look at your own house.

What expensive thing do you have which is not in use? What have you not used in the last year?

Maybe an extra TV or a Laptop. It can be a mobile phone, video games, or consoles that someone has gifted you, and you have set them aside since then. 

Look in your garage or attic. You would probably find something worthy enough to resell. 

The craziest thing I ever sold out of our attic was this bike that we almost put on the trash pile. It had been in the attic for 25 years. And even though it was broken, I sold it to a bike collector for $650 – crazy!

Pick it up, clean it a little bit, and list it on Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, or eBay. 

(I sold the bike on Facebook Marketplace).

Listing on these sites is free, and usually, somebody will come to pick the things up.

You can also resell lower-ticket items like clothes and books.

My #1 Ideas for Making $200 Fast

If you are only going to choose one thing to do and you aren’t looking to build a long-term hustle with a sustainable income, then flip stuff locally.

You can probably spend 30 minutes going through old items in your home that you haven’t used in a year.

Take those items, clean them up, and get photos in good lighting.

Add them to Facebook Marketplace and into selling groups on Facebook.

Manage your messages and answer potential buyer questions.

You will be able to figure out how to make 200 dollars fast if you can master this one platform.
