5 Simple and Free Ways to Make Money Online

We all want more money, it’s a fact. No matter how much you make with your job right now, you could always do with a little more and the Internet is the perfect place to do so. If you can spare an hour or two a day or a handful of hours across the week, then you can add money to your bank account.

Without looking at the paid ways to make money, here are some free ones:

1. Sell Your Services on Gig Sites

There are so many sites out there right now, but Fiverr.com is one of the most popular. You sell your services or offer to do something for $5. The site keeps a dollar and you get paid once you’ve completed the job. It could be anything from designing a logo, making a funny video, doing a voice over, writing an article, adding Tweets to promote someone’s website or giving people information that will help them.

The only downside is it takes 14 days to clear the money but once you get a good gig going the money will stream in.

2. Make a Blog

Help people with problems or give people information by writing one article per day on a blog. You can monetise it with affiliate offers, Adsense and other adverts. You take a commission when people click on the adverts or buy through the advert. It takes a little while, unless you know how to optimise your website, and is a great way to earn a great income from.

3. Forum Posting

If you have a blog or a product you’re pushing then forums are a great way to generate laser-targeted traffic. You can interact with people that are interested in a particular subject and they buy through your affiliate link or visit your website.

4. Amazon Mechanical Turk HITs

A HIT is a human intelligence task that a person needs to do when a computer can’t. It’s simple work that is easy to complete many HITs but it can be repetitive. If you simply want to generate easy money then this is a great way to do so.

5. Online Surveys

Companies pay for people’s thoughts, opinions and knowledge. If you have something to say, then why not get paid for it? Online survey sites are so simple to join and are often considered as the easiest and best way to get paid from working online. You have so much flexibility that you can simply join up and fill out surveys wherever you are in the world. If you’re at a coffee shop, on the beach, riding the bus or just when you have nothing to do, you could be making money.

Filling out multiple-choice questionnaires is child’s play and almost anyone can register. If you don’t want to sell services or type a lot, then online surveys are a fantastic way to get paid for not a lot of work.

As you can see there are many ways to earn from the Internet, you just need to choose what is right for you.
