Jul 23, 2008
The idea of making money online appeals to many people these days. With the high price of gas, food and other things it makes sense that people want to make some extra money from the internet. Some others just want the freedom of working for themselves with no boss to answer to or cubicle to go to each day. Hopefully one of these six easy ways to make money online will help you break free and find financial independence.

Here are my six easy ways to make money online:

1. Make money online as an affiliate selling other peoples stuff. You can find loads of business that will accept you as an affiliate at either Clickbank or Commission Junction. Being an affiliate is a great way to make money without having to worry about invoicing or payments since the payments are taken care of by the company you're selling for. All you have to do is promote the products and the merchant takes care of selling and billing. Depending on the product you can make up to 75% of the sales price.

2. Try selling stuff on eBay. Auctions can be a really easy way to make money online and eBay is the king of online auctions. Unfortunately they don't allow the sale of digital products anymore, but you can often find really cheap products to sell from dropship companies. Or search for the Build a Niche Store (BANS) software and create your own little niche eBay store.

3. Take paid online surveys. These survey sites have been around forever on the internet and for a very good reason. It's because they are a fast, safe and easy way for people to make money online. If you have a computer with an internet connection and an opinion you can make money filling out surveys online.

4. Sell your own services to people online. There are lots of services that people require and you can make money by providing them. Some that come quickly to mind are transcription, article writing, web design, research, data entry, translation, and virtual assistants. Some require specific skills, but some can be done by anyone. If you've got a talent for writing or languages or design you can easily make some extra cash from sites like Guru.com and eLance. Go ahead and give it a try.

5. Try blogging to make money online. There are lots of people doing it and setting up your own blog is easy these days with Blogger or Wordpress. These blogs can then make you money from Adsense, affiliate programs, direct advertising, sponsored reviews and posts and many other ways. Use you imagination. Make the blog about something you love or something you're already and expert on and once you start to get some visitors you'll start to see the money as well. The most important thing in blogging is to give your visitors useful information and to keep posting regularly.

6. If your good at photography you can make money by selling your photos. Go check out iStockPhoto if you've already got a large photo collection or get out there with your camera and start taking more now. You don't need the best camera to make money like this, but a high resolution for your photos is important.

So there you've got 6 easy ways to make money online. These are all easy ways for someone fairly new to the internet to start making some cash. Most of them require little to no special skills so you can get started right away. The most important thing though is that you choose one and take action on it. Not doing SOMETHING is the biggest block to most people making money online. Stop reading about making money and get out there and start actually making some money today.
