3 Ways To Make Money From Home Using The Internet

Apr 23, 2008
There are lots of ways to make money from home using the Internet. Here are three to get you started.

Get Paid to --- Take Surveys, Receive Offers, Read Email

First rule don't pay someone to find out information about the "Get Paid To" companies.

There are too many sites which falsely represent that you will be paid cash for taking surveys, referring visitors, or accepting offers. Some of these offers require a credit card. You sign up for a free month of XYZ movies, get paid $15 for accepting the offer and provide your credit card number. If you don't cancel the offer your credit will be billed, and you can't cancel immediately, or you won't be paid. Usually you have to reach a minimum level of earnings to receive a check or deposit to your Paypal account. And the minimum level is nearly impossible to earn. Some of the surveys can be completed quickly and some take an hour or so to complete.

Most of the money is made through referring other people. It will be a huge challenge to earn any material amount of money without a lot of referrals.

Taking surveys online takes a lot of time and doesn't pay well. You could end up earning less than $5.00 per hour for your efforts.

Being paid to read email sounds easy but the pay is extremely low. Most services limit the number of emails you receive as well so that lowers income even more. It's not a recommended way to earn money.

Submitting Links to Articles, Websites and Blogs to Social Networking Sites.

You can submit links to other people's articles, etc. to the social networking sites. The pay isn't terrific, usually no more than a couple of dollars per article. You'll have to set up an account at each site. Below is a list to get you started. With a bit of research you can find quite a few more.

Setting up the accounts at the social networking sites will probably take a couple of hours. If each article takes 20 minutes to post at all the social networking sites and you charge $4 for the service. You'd earn $12 an hour and would have to work a little over 9 hours to earn $100.

You need your client to tell you the url of the article/website, title, brief description or first paragraph of the article, category, and tags or key words.

Posting Ads for other people

One of the free ways to drive traffic to your own site, or blog, is to post classified ads on ad sites. Craigslist is one of the most popular, and it seems effective, of the free ad sites. It is city specific, meaning you can only post your ad to one city at a time. But if you're clever and reword the headline of the ad, and the body of the ad, you can post to a number of different cities as long as you use a different ad for each city.

You can also post ads for people and get paid for it. The pay is minimal, but the work doesn't take long after you've set up accounts at the different ad sites.

There you have three different ways to earn money at home using the Internet.
