  1. Online Prospects (also known as Online Surveys)

It is common to personnel who have joined the online world of business recently. It entails filling a survey only and makes cash. Many websites offer you surveys and need you take time to complete them. You can earn up to $10 – $20 per survey.

  1. Website Surveillance (also known as Website Reviews)

This is meant for you if and only if you are perfect at reviews. For a single review, you can earn up to $20 for just twenty minutes. For your extra time, review a website and make more money. But you need to have real experiences on the website in order to do this.

  1. Multitasking work

It is hectic but the best and certain method to earn money. Nowadays people prefer hiring online hence creating more job opportunities. So for that, you pick up extra time either in the comfort of your home or hostel. All you need is some computer skills, searching and handling skills, and you are set to go.

  1. Fiverr on the Rise

People prefer to use Fiverr to offer their services in the market since it is the greatest and largest marketplace. “Gigs” is the term used for services offered to clients. Almost anything can be offered and the minimum price is $5 but there is room for more.

It is amazing that you can resell “Gigs” to another freelancer websites for a higher price. For instance, you can buy a service for only $5 but sell it to another freelancer websites for an extra dollar. It’s also about purchasing low and sell high.

  1. YouTube Movies

Making short movies and posting on YouTube is quite slow but the surest way to generate cash online. It is more of a passive method to earn. Simply place a work upfront and earn just by sitting. Ensure you use topics that are often viewed and searched not just a one-time event.

For instance “How to tie shoelaces.” The topic will be searched continuously by junior persons who what to learn how shoelaces are tied. Unlike “The school re-opens today”. This will only be searched once for that day and not continuous searches.

  1. eBay Selling

Sell stuff that you no longer use on eBay. You can find some extra pennies from the things that have outgrown you. Do not give away or dispose of off your old clothes since they can make you earn some coins. However, it will come to a stop when you miss out on stuff to sell.

  1. Sell Pictures or Photos

Again it only applies to people who are perfect in photography. Some websites purchase photos which you can sell and earn a good sum of money. People also may buy for different objectives. It’s slow since you have to get a client to sell your photo.

  1. Selling an Already Used Hand Book

If you have a pile of books and they are just sitting on the bookshelves, why not sell them to make an extra dollar? It is similar to eBay where you sell stuff online and they get finished also. Luckily, you can buy them for a cheaper price and increase the selling price to earn more.

  1. Buying and Selling of Domains

You can buy domains for a website and sell them to another person for a higher price. People are always searching for an attractive domain name for their websites. But this can only be possible if you are gifted with knowledge of websites and related information.

There are many domain name registrars usually offering attractive deals on domain names with very cheap prices. If you can catch these deals, you can buy and resell them for profits. Find many domain promo codes I’ve introduced here.

  1. Search Web Payments (also known as GPT – Get Paid To)

This has proven to be one of the simplest ways of earning cash online. It only needs a little of effort in what you enjoy doing. Why not earn from what you have? These sites offer you a simple job searching some things on the internet, and then they pay you a small fee for the result.

  1. Upwork

Upwork has stood out to become the best way to earn money online. It thrives more because it acts as a search crawler for employment. All that you need are skills to offer and earn cash through it. You may face a few rejections and acceptances for the bid submitted. For an acceptance, negotiate and get started.

  1. Advertise on Media

Advertise your services on your social media accounts since it makes the world a global village. You already have potential clients who are interested, why not take that opportunity? Doing promotions for your services increases the opportunity of earning money from clients. Get out there and earn big.

  1. LinkedIn

It is used for connecting you to peers, customers, and many others. But this is not a direct way to earn cash. Always update your public profile because you never know when and who is watching you. It might be a potential client ready to buy your products as well as services.

    Hi Peter,

    When it comes to make money online there are so many ways that lure the people. But still most of the population is not able to monetize online opportunities. The big reason behind is that either they are running after fake and scam sites or maybe they are not able to do what is right.

    The ways you have shared here are quite popular and mostly effective.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Peter

      You’re welcome Gaurav Kumar,

      There are many more ways to earn money. I’m also doing some ways above such as buying & selling domains, selling on ebay, upwork, fiverr…Glad to see they help you alot


  2. Philip Verghese Ariel

    Hi Peter,
    Thanks for sharing these different ways to make money online.
    As Gaurav said there a good number of such sites available on the internet and a 90% of them are really fake and people get trapped in and get cheated. Some time back I posted one such story on my page. Yes, there are many out there to cheat the gullible one. One should be very careful when entering into such platforms.
    The ways you pointed out in this post are really worth trying.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Peter

      Thank you Philip to point out the bogus ad. This type of bogus ad happens regularly on our internet age. So I think that the awareness and prevention of this is a must-know skill for all of us.

      Thank you for your reminder!

    • Vyvian Chacon

      Hi Philip, a read your post on scammers and commented and shared. But not sure if my comment went through or not since I was having some problems posting on your site. Anyway, there are a lot of scammers out there, and people should be aware.

      • Janice Wald

        Hi Vyvian,
        A blogging friend of mine and I are planning a post about the topic.

  3. Tup Bebek Ankara

    Thanks for the very nice article. I’ve been using Fiverr for a long time both as a seller and buyer. I think it has money making opportunities for everyone who has access to internet. However I’ll look into the other methods that you mentioned.

  4. Freddy G. Cabrera

    Hey Peter!

    There are a lot of ways one can earn some extra cash online. But it does take time and effort to make it happen. It’s not so easy. This is something everyone must really understand. Making money online is possible but it has to be treated as a real business, as a real “job”.

    One of my favorite ways, from your list, is making money with I’ve actually been a popular seller on Fiverr a few years ago. I was building membership websites for a very cheap price. It got to a point where I was getting too many clients and that was taking all of my free time away and with what I was charging it was not worth it. If you are going to sell through Fiverr you need to do the math with your time and money. You have to make it worth it.

    Thank you for sharing your tips here!

    Have a wonderful week! 😀

    • Peter

      If you have skills on SEO and programming, I think that besides Fiverr, you can join in many other freelance sites such as Seoclerks, upwork, freelancer, guru,…They’re all value sources to earn more money.

      Good luck to you,

  5. Vyvian Chacon

    Hi Peter, thank you for your tips. I’ve used Fiverr as a buyer….it has good gigs. Many years ago, I learned about about buying and selling domains. Since then, I’ve been wanting to start doing that, but it just never works out. I’m going to look into it again. Do you have any other suggestions on that? Also, on surveys that pay $10 to $20 per survey….I’ve completed many surveys on different survey sites throughout the years, and these do pay. However, I’ve never encountered a site that pays $10 – $20 per survey. The most money that a site pays for surveys is $3 on what I’ve seen, and I’ve seen many. So, I’d like to know which sites are paying this amount of money? Do you have this information or where are you getting this info?? Thank you.

    • Peter

      I used to join I-say and Branded surveys since many years ago. You can check these sites, I don’t know whether they have any changes now. Currently I’m working in buying & selling domains and websites as well as joining in couponing industry. Good luck to you,

    Hi Peter,

    I’ve actually used Upwork before in the past and you can definitely make some money on the site. It does take time to land the right client.

    From my experience, most people who are looking to hire people on that site are looking for very cheap work. So it takes a while to find the right job.

    The cool thing about having access to the Internet is that there are several ways to make money online. It doesn’t happen overnight, but with the persistence, I have no doubt that anyone can make money online.

    You’ve definitely given people some places to get started with their online ventures.

    Thanks for taking the time to share this with us.

    Have a great day 🙂


    • Janice Wald

      Hi Susan,
      Thank you for your thoughtful, detailed comments. Unfortunately, your comment ended up in the spam folder, so Peter never saw it.
      If you don’t mind if I reply, =) I agree with what you wrote. There are many ways of making money on the Internet. I’ve blogged about many of them and will continue to do so. Thanks again for writing us. Great to see you.

    Hi Peter & Janice,

    I cannot agree anyless with you on the fact that the 13 steps in your article will help anyone make money online. Even though there are many, many ways to make money online, it is necessary to be able to identify those that are genuine and pays well.

    Freddy make a point I appreciate. He said “it is not easy to make money online.” This is factual. So it simply means that to make money online, one has be dedicated to his chosen online business and treat it like a real business.

    For example, before becoming a blogger, I did surveys, but the pay wasn’t much. I hardly go by with what I was getting from the surveys I was conducting. The point is, to have success in your online business, put the effort and energy and be consistent.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Peter

      Correct, It’s not easy to make money online for people who don’t try hard. Before joining in any kinds of make money online, I think people will need to research carefully about their passions, their strengths and the market demand. The combination between 3 those factors (or more) will give you best results and in that ways, it’s more easier. IMO

  8. Aashi Agarwal

    hey I am working on fiver and got few clients, made few bucks and it’s awesome to start if you have skills, but can you provide me few tips to get consistent clients or I would say “how can I increase my reach in fiver”?

    • Peter

      You can do some simple ways such as share your gigs on social media (FB, Twitter, G+,…) or build a landing page to promote your gigs business.

  9. Enstine Muki

    Hey Peter,
    I do agree these are genuine ways to make money online but how much you make “quick” is where the issue is.

    Some people may be lucky to have some platforms that generate quick cash for a while but to have a long term sustainable income, it often comes after building a successful marketplace. If you don’t used paid means to get traffic, you are really going to have to wait for some time 😉

    That’s just my thought though

    • Peter

      You’re right, Enstine. To start a MMO business is hard but to keep that business successful for a long time is harder. We need to respect the work and treat it as the main and full time job.

  10. Adithya Shetty

    Hi Peter,

    Great post, I remember using Fiverr a few years ago when I was a newbie, it’s a great platform to offer freelancing services! Nowadays, I prefer affiliate marketing to make money with my blog!

    Thanks for sharing!

  11. Neeraj Jivnani

    Very nice post, I found it very interesting. you have explained everything is detailed
    your post is very factual, thank you for the post.

  12. Ali

    Hey Peter,

    I like your money making ideas. I can personally attest to the effectiveness of Upwork since I started off there as a freelance writer. That is how I started to live on my own and even managed to buy a little car using my Upwork income. I actually got my first writing job the first time I applied. I had some writing in my portfolio so I guess that helped.

    • Peter

      Glad to see that you have some successes on MMO business. Wish you have more in the future. Cheers,

        • Bright

          I have also learnt a lot from this post. I think affiliate marketing does it for me as I do not need to have a product of my own to begin.

          • Janice Wald

            You are correct. Yet, many people think they need their own product in order to make money fast on the internet. Thanks for contributing to the discussion with this verification.

  13. Dennis Harding

    Thank you for this great knowledge on how to make money online, I’ve tried so many methods over the years trying to make money online and I can honestly say it’s a daunting task at first. But then I started taking surveys on wealthy survey sites and now I’m making on average of 7 thousand dollars a month by taking surveys online.

    This is my favorite survey website:

    I’ve been making on average of 9 to 23 dollars per survey, and the best part about these surveys is that they are only one to two minutes long. So I wanted to share this website with people who are trying to make money online, for those who are struggling financially, for those who are looking to side hustle, or someone like who I used to be, and that was a broke student who could barely afford rent until I started working online.

    So this is just to help anyone out there looking for a way to make some extra money online.

    I hope this helps.

  14. Vicky

    Great article, thank you for sharing it. Working from home is the best thing that ever happened to me, I recently started participating in online surveys and that increase my side budget constantly.
