Making Money:

-For fast cash, stake out and destroy an ATM. Also the people who have just visited an ATM generally have some cash in their pockets. Seems to bring in $20-$200

-The random convenience stores and corner markets(that allow you to go inside) can actually be robbed.  Walk in, aim a gun at the cashier, be sure to fire your gun at the registers also(some have two) and you can force more money to pop out, grab the money and escape before the cops arrive.  Seems to bring in $200-$500

-You can also rob gun and clothing stores by pulling out your gun and aiming it before entering the stores. Although the store's employee won't be emptying the cash registers for you, simply shooting them open yourself will provide you with the money inside. (I have found this slightly difficult, you need to get the door to swing open, then pull out your gun and attempt to walk through, otherwise you will put your gun away when he attempts to open the door.)  Seems to bring in $200-$500

-Rob an Armored Truck, in the beginning hours of the game one of the easiest ways to make money is to rob an armored vehicle.  Simply blow the back doors open with a gun or C4 and collect the money.  Usually I get lucky enough to catch the security guards bringing the money to the armored truck beforehand, in which case the job is that much easier. Take out the guard carrying the cash, take the money, and run.  Seems to bring in $500-$2500

-There’s real money in the story Heist missions, enough to give you a hefty Stock Market bankroll.  In the first Jewel Heist, the most valuable Jewels are hidden in the center cabinets in the island near the register.  Be sure to hire the best available Crew on any Heist. They end up saving more than you spend, and the cheaper crews usually come back to bite you.  Can bring in $1,000 - Millions

-Check out the Stock Market and multiply your earnings.  Franklin’s assassination Missions are almost always tied to corporate sabotage and market rigging. Listen to the tips given from Lester on where to invest your money prior to beginning the job. (so far I have made most of my money in this way.)  Can bring in $1,000 - Millions

-If you really want to rake in the money on the assassination missions, research the mission you are about to acquire, so that you can cycle through all three characters to invest in the correct stock.  Once you speak to Lester you are unable to change characters, and therefore unable to invest with anyone besides Franklin.  Alternatively, the market response is somewhat delayed, so you can invest immediately after completing the assassination, and still capture almost all of the gains.  Can bring in $1,000 - Millions

MORE STOCK MARKET INFO:
So apparently the BAWSAQ stock market is connected online, that is why you may have seen that market show an error but the LCN market continued to work.  The BAWSAQ market is conencted to the Rockstar Social Club, it rises and falls according to .... well everyone. Found a neat link where you can keep an eye on the virtual stock market even when you're not playing the game: http://www.gtabawsaq.com/ps3/
http://www.gtabawsaq.com/xbox/
and here is an image showing the LCN competitors, so that you know where to place your money, when messing with another company
