Three Simple Ways to Make Money Online

Posted on by

The invention of the internet revolutionized many things. From doing simple research to how we shop, the internet changed things for the majority of people. One important way the internet has transformed business and the economy is in the way that people from all over the world can make money. With just a simple computer and an internet connection, working from home has taken off like at no other time in history. The options are many–from writing and teaching to selling goods and services, many people are making their living online.

If you are starting from scratch, it is important to explore and investigate all of your options for how you might make money using the internet. Of course, it isn’t the internet itself that ushers the cash right into your PayPal account. It is the method by which you utilize the internet that creates cash. It takes time, persistence, patience, and a little bit of creativity to ultimately earn money on the web. The internet is just venue that beams opportunity to the computer screen in front of you. You have to do the rest. Here are a few ideas for how you might make a little extra cash via the internet.

• Online Surveys. You’ll hear about these. You will hear that some internet users deem them as scams, while others around the web swear they are not only legitimate, but they work. The fact is, companies will pay money for market research, which through the internet, comes to your email inbox in the form of online surveys. Check out the PineConeResearch sign up, SurveySavvy sign up, or any number of other survey sites that allow you to join and peruse how they work. Read the terms carefully. Dabble in the sites and take a couple of surveys before you decide whether survey taking is for you. Plenty of people, after doing the SurveySavvy, Opinion Outpost, or PineConeResearch sign up find that the sign up requirements are reasonable and, over time will discover the system is legitimate. You may not become a millionaire, but you should see a decent amount of extra cash. At some point, it is wise to assess how much time you spend taking surveys compared to how much money you make, and then determine whether it is worth continuing.

• Google Adwords. If you can write and find an audience, make money by starting your own website. Set up adwords on the site so every time a person views or clicks on the ad, you get a tiny bit of money, and there you go! This is another area where just dabbling and continually assessing your time compared to the money earned is needed. But, you also can’t expect too much in the beginning. It takes some time to build an audience and to see money come from that audience. However, if you already have a pseudo-decent audience on a social network or two (Facebook, Twitter), you may be halfway there to monetizing that audience.

• Blogging. You might also consider starting a blog that is very focused on a specific popular topic. If you have an interest, look around and see if others are making money by blogging about that interest. You might just be surprised at how easy blogging can be.
