You would be absolutely amazed at the different sorts of things you can do online to make money, and I'm not talk about MLM or freelancing. I'm not saying these processes will or won't make you substantial amounts of money, but in my experience it was enough to make a dent, but not enough to consider myself "well-off."
But still nonetheless, money is money and if your searching for a way to make money, chances are you have learned a good rule to follow and that is don't place all your eggs in one basket. Don't rely on just one job, one service, one route. Split your time up between 2-4 different projects online. This way if one goes awry and ends up not making you money that month, you will have other projects and money to lean on. Here are a few different ways you can make money online!
Get paid to surf. Advertisers buy "views" and you the member view these ads at say 15 seconds per website. Usually they have some sort of a CAPTCHA on the site to make sure you're not cheating. This is another "few dollars" type site. Definitely not for the faint of heart. I just tried one out a few hours ago to see what it was, it bored me to death! But hey if you need to make a few bucks in a few days, then these sites are the sites for you!
I just did a quick glance of some sites, apparently people really love two sites in particular. One is called CashFiesta another is called Algloco. You can check them out for yourself.
Blogs and forums are BIGGER now than they ever have been. You can find blogs and forums on every single subject or topic you could possibly think of! You can also get paid to write comments on blogs and post in forums. Most of the time when you find a job and they are asking you to do something like this it IS legit but usually it's the owner of the site asking for this service.
It makes the blog or forum seem more productive and active, which is a big part of a blog or forum. You don't want new members coming to a really cool forum and seeing no new posts, no threads, no activity, no one talking, do you? The best way to find this kind of work is search for two main keywords. For blog commenters try Google for "blog commenter jobs" and for forum posters try Google for "forum poster jobs". In about 5 seconds you will find tons of different people and sites wanting this sort of a service.
If you have your own blog you can also get paid for blogging about companies or services. This is pretty easy but let me give you a word of advice! Make sure you have a blog that's a popular niche but not so popular that everyone and their mother have the same site. You can join two sites I work with, they are sister sites and yes they are legit, you really can get paid to blog!
What happens is this. You have a blog and want to make money, well Craft Cheese (I spelled that wrong on purpose) wants to advertise a new product they have. They want to get it out there as much as they possibly can. So, they hire you the blogger on to write about this new product. It has to be a certain length, include certain keywords, maybe 1 link per paragraph, they will pay you and 1000 other people $5 to complete it, and you absolutely CANNOT say this is a featured blog or anything like that.
You write the blog, you tell Blogvertise "okay I did the blog, here it is on page 7 of my blog." They go and check the blog out, making sure you followed all the guidelines, and then they give this blog to Craft Cheese who says; "wow this is really good, okay pay them $5."
Survey sites, I have to mention this topic because I finally broke down and joined two. In 15 years of being online I have always pledged to not join survey sites. But I found two in particular that I absolutely love, so now I'm telling you to join them as well. DailyCashRewardz constantly has on going contests for prizes and for money. This site is awesome in my book. $20 minimum payouts, paid in 24 hours by Pay Pal, or one week with Check, tons of offers to do.
I made $50 in 4 days. That's pretty darn good. And, since then I've made well over $150. Quick tip: Make new email accounts JUST for these sites, you're going to get a lot of junk! Also, make sure you change your email address often. The second site doesn't pay as often but the more you earn the more you get paid its called CashCrate $10 minimum paid through check only. Two really legit, really nice paying sites. Check them out!
Before joining a site, always check out reviews for the website and see what other people think about the websites and programs as well, don't just take my word for it!
