Isn’t it just funny how life works sometimes!? Someone who has gone to school, done their bachelors for 4 years, and then their masters for another 2 or 3 years, gets a job and starts making about $75,000 to $200,000 dollars a year. Then, on the other hand, there are some people (who I have personally heard about) who never finished their bachelors’ degree, and yet, they are making tons more money online.

Yes, it’s true, thanks to the internet, lots of people now work online and make money, great money! And when I say money, I mean millions of dollars a year. However, it’s not as simple as getting onto your laptop and suddenly money comes flying into your bank account. I heard one successful affiliate marketer say, “it’s not hard but it’s not easy”. What did he mean by that?

Here’s the thing, if you want to work online and make money, you have to be dedicated and willing to learn new things. No, I’m not going to sugar coat it and tell you that you can make money 30 minutes from now. That actually is possible, but, if you want to want to successfully work online and make money, you need to be committed and focused to your business, cause it really is a business. There are also a number of tools and resources out there that can help you work online and make money.

So, what are a few of the ways you can work online and make money? Let me share with you a few that I have had success with, or know someone who has had success with. The first one is affiliate marketing, wow, I just love it! It has been a long journey for me, but I have personally experienced the GREAT MONEY you can earn. Basically, you sell/promote other peoples products, or their services, and you get paid a commission. May not sound like much, but if you know what you are doing, yeah, you can make a lot of money! Think about it, the internet is like a store that is opened 24/7, 365 days a year, opened to MILLIONS of customers who are online. All you need to do is get the right customers to your offer. So now you see why it’s not hard, but it’s not easy. With time and dedication, you’ll learn how to get the right people/traffic to your offer.

Second, we have stocks. Yes, analyzing the graphs and trends of the market so that you can buy low, and then sell high. If you like studying patterns and numbers, then this maybe the way for you to work online and make money.  Basically, you buy into the market when stock prices are low, and when the prices go up, you sell the stocks that you bought. But, working online has its advantages ‘cause now there are so many helpful tools and resources to help you understand the different trends so that you can make a wise decision.

The last method I’d like to talk about is doing surveys. To tell you the truth, if you want to make a consistent amount trying to work online and making money, then I wouldn’t do this long term. BUT, if you need some extra income, go for it. Basically, you fill out surveys by giving your opinion, and then companies pay you for that. The reason they want your opinion is so that they have data for maybe a new product they want to launch, or a new market they want to get into.

If you are new, well, there are a number of companies that are willing to help you get started so that you too can work online and make money. But, I need to say, please be careful! From personal experience, I have lost money through fraudulent companies who were just running scams. So please, do your research first on a company and see if they are truly legitimate and want to help you succeed online, or if they out to get your money.

So, it is possible to live the dream, have money coming in on auto-pilot, spend time with your family at home or travel together, just remember, “It’s not hard, but it’s not easy”. Stay focused and committed, and hopefully, a year from now, you’ll be firing your boss, how’s that.

The work from home jobs that aren’t scams actually require work on your part – and if you’re in need of money soon then you’re likely to be sorely disappointed in any of those as well. Most of the legit opportunities out there take time to build – so if someone makes an outrageous claim of income it probably isn’t true ( and those that are true sure didn’t make that kind of money when they first began ).


Time & effort required – but do your own research on what is best for you, don’t take the advice of myself and others as gospel from this type of forum.


I have other ideas that may help – one of them is an online opportunity but another is one that will require a little effort to market yourself – try some data entry for local businesses, many of them don’t have the time to do it in-house and will gladly pay someone else to do it. Professionals are a good place to start, lawyers, doctors, chiropractors, etc – they need their "in-house" folks doing other things rather than busy work.


Hope it helps!

I’m willing to invest a little money, just as long as it’s not a SCAM and I’ll make that money back.

This may sound like a canned answer, or something an old uncle might say, but it is the truth.

Find a niche and fill it.

Ask yourself, "What goods or services do I, or people I know, regularily buy or use?" "Is there any way I can improve on that?"

There are companies out there who manufacture products and will ship them to the end user at your direction. No inventory, no minimums. Pretty much pay as you go. If you can find the right product mix and the right audience you can make some money doing this. Just be careful.

I mean none where you have to spend to make just to simply make small amounts of money for being on the web anyways I have already set up for chacha but looking for other great websites?

Hi Brandi. I always recommend that anyone considering starting an online business consider the adult industry. The profits are amazing, conversions are high and you can sell a high demand product which is purchased again and again.

If you are serious about an adult website you either need to provide your own content or team up with a good affiliate program. Since you’re asking this – I will assume you don’t have content ;) I use a web cam site with a well known, established affiliate program to generate about $750 – $1200 per month every month quickly and easily. I get paid every single week and earn up to $80 for every FREE member I refer to my site. You also get a $50 CASH bonus just for signing up. You don’t have to pay anything to get started and my program is staffed 24/7 with affiliate support reps to ensure you know how to make money. I currently convert better than 1 in 150 unique visitors, so I know for a fact this is a great web cam affiliate program. Check out my blog for more info – look for the "Adult Webmasters Wanted" page on the upper right hand side of the page. Good luck!

has anyone every worked for online surveys . I need to find one that really pays you. I have spent the last 3 days doing surveys and hardly any money was made.
Please help

You need to send your resume out to real jobs you are qualified to do.

In your cover letter you need to state that you wish to work remotely, from your home office. LOTS of companies, especially in CA operate this way. They usually provide transportation for you to come in for an interview and for you to attend company meetings a few times a year, but otherwise everything is done online.

Hi N ,

I’ve had a lot of experience over the past 3 years with this subject. I went through litereally 50+ different companies on the interent trying to make money while I was in college. There’s sooo much crap out there and companies that promise you the world but deliver nothing but hype, it takes a while to seperate the crap from the genuine money making opportunities.

Now after sooo many disapointments I’m using a crowd called Data Entry Pro and it’s now making me money (finally!) online.

Anyway, basically you sign up with them and then once your logged in you just fill in as many forms as you like in their members section and you get paid for each one. I get checks from them every 2 weeks each averaging around $250-$350. You could make more but I just use the site as an extra income stream aswell as my full time job so I only work on it for around an hour each night.

You do have to be prepared to spend a little money though if you want to do anything online like this but it´s already been worth it for me.

Here`s the link you can get them at anyway -> www.datatry.com

Hope this helps!

Ps: I forgot to tell you that they now have a 60 day money back guarantee or something like that (they didn’t have one of these when I joined) so if you don’t like it you can get a full refund… I know you won’t look back though! :)

check out the web link to look into this money making opportunity:

Does anyone know if this is a safe site and that it can really help me make some spare money by working from home???????

There is a registration fee of under $100 but am reluctant to pay this before I get started and wondered if anyone has tried this opportunity before????????

First, there are a few cardinal rules I follow for looking for legitimate online jobs:

1) If they ask for any type of fees, RUN FAR AWAY!
2) You will most likely not find a plain ol’ data entry job.
3) Work at home jobs are not any easier than regular jobs you do outside the home, anything promising lots of money for doing nothing is a scam or a bad business opportunity.
4) Do not "process payments" for anyone, you could end up in the big house.
5) Is the job they are offering going to "change your life", I doubt it.
6) Legitimate companies will not advertise their jobs on banners or spam mail.

For a good free comprehensive list of legitimate companies that hire at home workers go to http://www.workathomedesk.com then click on Work At Home Directory. They also have updated job postings. Depending on your experience and skills you should be able to find something there. Good luck!
