5 Ways to Earn Money Online

You know the Internet has made a lot of people filthy rich. And that’s the problem. You just know; unlike a “lot of people”, you’re not actually involved in the entire process of making yourself filthy rich.

Even if you wanted to, you just don’t know how. There’s either too little or too much to work with. There are a lot of walkthroughs giving general guides as to where you can start, but what I’ve noticed about the few articles is their lack of specificity. For people who are just about to make the Internet a melting pot of cash, it’s hard to know where to begin without a detailed companion on how to earn money online.

Okay, what I’m about to share to you are not ways to be filthy rich through the Internet. But most of them will give you a good headstart before you start earning seriously through the Internet. Trust me on this. 😉

1. MyLot.com

MyLot works in the same way regular social networking sites do. And by regular, I mean Myspace, Facebook, and Friendster. The interface is fairly easy to navigate, you can make random friends, and you can earn cheap money from it. I’m not saying it’s the best money-making venture, but it actually pays! You just make yourself as active as possible in this site, and your day’s earnings are cashed in.

2. Sneakin Design

Sneakin Design is one of the local web writing companies, where you are tasked to write an article, deliver it within a certain deadline, and get paid after a month. They don’t pay their writers that much, as I heard, but it gives would-be web content writers a place to start earning for what they write. Think of writing for Sneakin Design as a launching pad of your own freelance writing career in the Internet.

3.  Neobux

NeoBux is one of the best paid-to-click (PTC) sites I know. What are paid-to-click sites? Well, as the term itself says, you get paid to click on different ads. The pay-per-click rate is a bit higher at .02$, for something that you don’t even have to put your mind into. You just have to click and wait for 30 seconds and you get your money. Obviously, you don’t get rich by clicking as many ads as you can; you get people to join the site, enter your referral code, and earn from how many clicks your referred friends make.

Don’t worry, I’m not attempting to make money off you. What’s up there isn’t a referral link. 🙂 Although…

4. Blogsvertise

Blogsvertise is a paid blogging service, where you blog about the assignment given to you and get paid for your efforts. Paid blogging is a result of companies’ efforts to add in a human touch to their products by actually paying bloggers to blog about their product, as if it was an initiative of the blogger itself. The scheme is pretty tricky, but not hard to notice if you’re a reader of a certain blog entry.

Of course, platforms like Blogsvertise won’t accept just any blog site. Usually, there’s a loose screening system that will evaluate your blog’s viability. You first of all have to have a niche blog that fits into whatever products you’ll be blogging about. If you’re thinking of paid blogging as your personal racket, you might want to move to Blogger. WordPress doesn’t allow this. 🙂

5. Google AdSense

By subscribing to AdSense, you’re going to have to put up ads in your personal website. You don’t have discretion as to which ads you’ll be placing; Google usually determines what ads will appear on your site depending on the content of the page. Before even being approved by AdSense, you first have to send your URL to Google for approval. Your site has to have interesting content based on a niche topic by then. Getting approved is merely the icing at the top of a reaaaally towering cake, as you will now have to get readers to read your content and click on the Google ads. That’s the only way you’re going to earn.

And no, WordPress doesn’t allow this either.

As you can see, these five methods are quite specific. They are but mere examples of what they represent. Paid blogging, affiliate marketing, get-paid-to sites, and web content writing. I am sure there are a lot more examples than the ones I specified; nevertheless, they are good places to start, should you finally decide to make the Internet a place for your pocket’s desires.

  1. i just hate ads in blogs, niche or otherwise. i don’t even give a second to read them. and paid blogs? it’s quite easy to spot because the brand name pops up once in a while like a hardworking 30-seconder commercial.

    but yeah, i’m all for making money online, too, and perhaps your classmates will be glad to get these specifics from you in a wiki sharing way 🙂

    • There are some ads, though, that a surprisingly huge number of people feel compelled to engage–after being convinced and thoroughly informed by the websites that carry them. And I think that’s one of the examples of Google’s democratization of the Web: giving companies, big and small, an equal platform to somehow convince Internet users to click that otherwise annoying ad. Hehe.

  2. You know all of these stuff? 😮 I just know and use the fifth one–which doesn’t make me filthy rich, or not just yet.

    On a more interesting note, you can revise the your title to: 6 Ways to Earn Money. Include joining WWTBAM as the sixth option. Haha. You filthy rich boy!
