How To Make Money From Home | Ways To Make Money



Not everyone wants to go through the hassle of getting a domain name, buying hosting, and then figuring out how to get a website or blog up. It can be quite a daunting task for a newbie. Or maybe you are just starting out and just want to get your feet wet. Here are 2 specific ways to earn money on the Internet without having a website:

1)  Send Earnings (100% free method)This is how I got started making money online. You get paid to do things you normally do anyways. You will get paid to play games online, read emails, take surveys, and other things. You get a $5.00 bonus for signing up and it is always free with no fees. They pay by check and will never ask you for money.

2) CashCrate (100% free method) I got paid $253.23 in Janary 2014 and I have been paid every month. In this CashCrate review post, I show you how to make money through surveys at CashCrate. This is a great place to start off and you can get some good spare cash coming in. It is free and they will never ask you for money. (13 years and older for this so it is a great way for a teen to make money and it is absolutely free!)

    These are really good methods. Even if they won’t make you tons of cash on their own, their combined results could prove to sum up to a more than decent amount.

    These are good methods, but I’ve learned that if you try to be a jack of all trades you’ll end up a master of none and fairly broke. I write articles full time, and make damn good money doing it. Most people try writing articles, get $3 a pop and give up, but it’s possible to make $20 an article writing SEO articles and other web content.

    I explain the whole business in my latest post on making good money from articles.

    I hope to give people options. Some will like article writing, others may enjoy the surveys, and other may want something else. There are tons of ways to make money on the Internet and not one of them is the “right way”.

    I couldn’t agree with you more. My point is only that if you want to make a good living full time from some internet activity, I believe it is better to focus on one in particular.

    If you are trying to figure out 3 or 4 things at the same time, it just gets too distracting. I was writing articles, running blogs and taking surveys until I worked out I could make more money by focusing on the articles.

    I agree that if you want to focus on something, you will get much better results than those who try doing everything.

    A little problem with Associated Content is that these guys don’t allow folks outside USA to write for money. I’m sure many bloggers could do well just writing for a living as in being a ghostwriter 🙂

    I am curious how you make money from eBay affiliates via email? I am also curious if you have made money from the survey thing as I have looked at it before. How much can you make a month figuring on the low end?

    I was also wondering how you like assocated content. I have signed up with them a while back but have not done anything with it yet. What is the average amount paid out for publishers providing content?

    As for Associated Content, I myself put one article up there, and so far nothing has happened. Unfortunately, it’s bad news if you live outside of the United States. Unless you’re a US citizen, Associated Content will not pay you for your articles.

    Just a warning to anyone who spends 30 minutes of their life writing an article for them, hoping to get paid something. If you’re a blogger in the states it’s a great idea to put your posts up there a few days before you publish them, cos then you make around $4 each post, whether people come to your blog or not!

    survey software hosting free online surveys…

    Paid survey programs offer a fun and flexible way to earn extra cash.

    Associated Content is far more likely to pay three or four dollars, and it will be a cold day in hell before anybody makes even $20.00, which is the most they promise. Pay rates have gone down now that a PPV bonus is in place. Non-US writers can get the PPV bonus, even though they still can’t get upfront pay.

    These are good ways to make money, but people can also earn a lot from doing online surveys.

    You deserve an award for making any kind of money by using Squidoo…lol. The more i use that site, the more time i seem to waste (or atleast is seems like it). Also, as for the poster above me who suggest paid surveys, i would agree but from my own experience with them, you have to make sure that the survey is worth it (and legit).

    I’ve been hearing so much about Project Payday
    and wondered if it actually lived up to the hype.

    After seeing the reviews,That’s the one I would
    recommend for a newbie
    trying to bring in some extra cash

    There are definitely a lot of ways to make money online, as a self-proclaimed newbie I am figuring all of this out- the lingo, the options, etc.
    But my observation is that the lowest amount of overhead and initial investment is the way to go. Finding reputable websites and money making options isn’t that difficult. By merely visiting a website and taking note of the details and the rhetoric found on that website(do they offer specifics and details? are they 100% money oriented?)is a good and easy way to decide if this is something that you want to associate yourself with. Follow your gut and if it looks scheezy and gives you a scheezy feeling then it probably is.

    Thanks for this! People have been focused on making money via the world wide web which is not surprising really. The reason behind why people get addicted to making money via the world wide web is because there is no capital involved. All you need is your computer and your all set.

    Thanks for the info. With all the bad, how to make money information we get online with low rate websites, it is good to read something from someone who knows what they are talking about. I will be trying out some of your money theories myself.

    I don’t like AC. Try Hubpages if you want to write and then you can put your adsense code in and you will make more than AC

    To the person above who said that it’s good to write articles in order to make money:

    I’ve stopped writing for people. I believe it’s unfair to do so.

    Two years ago, I would get paid $5 per 250-word article. Today, the rates have been going down too much. It’s not worth it anymore!

    If you’re lucky, you may get a good deal? What do I mean when I say good deal? Well, it’s easy. If I tell people I’m a good writer, they probably want to hire me. I get happy, and the person that hires me also gets happy. The thing is, when I find out about how much he has to offer me – I got crazy. $2 for a 500-word article.
