ROSI: Did you mean how to earn money online?

JEN: Yeah.

ROSI: Searching the web for ways to earn money online. I found 217 million results.

JEN: Actually, make that legit ways.

ROSI: Searching. I found 3 basic results.

JEN: Sell your stuff, sell your skills, sell your feedback…

ROSI: Listing your items for sale online is an easy way to declutter and make some cash at the same time.

JEN: Tell me more.

ROSI: Options include online marketplaces, auction sites and buy-back sites for electronics, textbooks, movies, games and designer clothing.

JEN: I have a few things I'd like to get rid of.

ROSI: OK Jen. I found this article about online seller tips and avoiding scams.

JEN: Save for later. Hey Rosi, what was the second result for earning money online?

ROSI: Sell your skills. Options include freelancing, selling your work online and ad revenue.

JEN: Search the web for online freelance jobs.

ROSI: Here. I found this: writer, proofreader, web designer, programmer, virtual assistant, tutor, translator, voice actor, customer service agent, fitness coach, marketing consultant…

JEN: OK, OK, thanks! Search the web for things to make and sell.

ROSI: Online platforms make it easy to sell stock photos, artwork, merchandise, e-books, online courses and video tutorials in your area of expertise.

JEN: Nice.

ROSI: I see you have your own website. Advertising and affiliate marketing are ways to earn passive income on existing blogs, podcasts and videos.

JEN: Close… Rosi, close window! Close window. Close window.

ROSI: Sell your feedback. Options include taking surveys, watching videos or advertisements, writing product reviews, recording video testimonials, and user-testing websites, apps and search engines.

ROSI: OK, here's your reminder.

JEN: No! I said declare one million dollars of online income.

ROSI: I am programmed to be realistic.

JEN: Set reminder for one million dollars.

ROSI: I'm sorry Jen. I'm afraid I can't do that.
