7 Ways to Make Money Online
Without Being Scammed…

 

It’s estimated that for every one legitimate online opportunity there are roughly sixty scams. The reason is that quite a few people seem to believe that there’s a magic package out there which allows one to make a lot of money on the internet with very little effort, and there’s always a less than reputable website willing to sell it to them.

To be perfectly honest there are many different ways to make money online, and working from home can be extremely rewarding. But there’s a big difference between a legitimate online job or opportunity and the unsolicited offers that often find their way into your inbox.

This is why we’ve put together a list of real ways to make money from home. These are all legitimate companies and methods which allow you to start getting paid for a wide range of activities with little or no investment on your part.

Feel free to explore the ideas on this page, join the discussions & leave your response below, or suggest an idea we haven’t thought of yet…




#1 Get an Online Job…

If you want to earn income at home then you may think the most obvious solution is to get a work-at-home job. Well you’re right! Unfortunately many internet scams specifically target people searching to work at home. To avoid falling for any kind of schemes the best thing you can do is go directly to the source. Find forums or job boards that focus on the kind of work you want to do. For instance there are many legit jobs in the customer service industry.

You can get a job as a customer service representative and earn money by fielding customer’s questions and providing them with support. This type of work will require some brief training and the ability to pass a background check.

If you’re the creative type, you can find work at home opportunities in almost any industry. If you have technical skills such as programming or graphic design, then the door is really wide open. In addition to full time work at home jobs there are a plethora of freelance jobs.

Check out our lists of legitimate work at home jobs below:

#2 Make Money Taking Surveys…

Surveys often get a bad reputation online because many people are confusing legitimate survey companies with other fraudulent online offers. The most important thing you need to look for in an online survey site is that it’s associated with a real market-research company.

There are many false “survey” websites out there that attempt to charge money for survey opportunities, but participation in real market research should always cost you nothing.

In addition, many fraudulent websites claim extraordinary earnings from taking surveys, which is not how real survey companies operate. You should have reasonable expectations and understand that you’re not going to make a full-time income taking surveys.

Big-name brands pay research companies to get their members to take various surveys. Often times they’re looking for very specific demographics which means you may not qualify. The best way around this is to be honest in your profile and sign up with several websites to increase your chances of qualifying.

#3 Get Paid to Browse the Net…

With more and more retail and advertising dollars being spent online studying people’s browsing habits has become huge business. Insights into online behavior are worth thousands, if not millions, of dollars to large companies who do business online.

This is why there’s been a significant rise in research firms that study how and why people do certain things online. In order to get this data they’ve developed websites that reward people with gifts and prizes for contributing to their statistics.

One of the most reputable companies offering this opportunity is www.SwagBucks.com. They’ll pay you for doing things online such as browsing, shopping, or even playing games. Any info they collect is anonymous and unidentifiable so your privacy is protected.

Working with Swagbucks will certainly not replace your dayjob, but why not get a little something extra for doing many of the things that you’re already doing anyways?

 

#4 Make Money With Your Own Website…


If you’re looking to work hard, be your own boss, and create a full-time income for yourself then making money with your own website is the route you’re looking to take. With a website you open yourself up to a variety of income sources, primarily making money through advertising networks such as AdSense or affiliate marketing.

You no longer need to be a computer or programming expert to make money with a website. Services such as blogger and wordpress allow you to quickly create your own website and even host it for free. Keep in mind that you will not make money on your first day, or likely your first month.

Making money with a website is a lot like starting your own business. It can be a lot of work and you often don’t reap the benefits till much later down the line. However, if you’re willing to work hard, have an idea or vision, and have a passion for self-employment then there’s nothing stopping you from succeeding.

Many people get intimidated just by the thought of creating their own website, which is why we put together a step-by-step, easy to follow guide that’ll show you how to do everything from creating your site to earning your first dollar online. Check out our free make money online guide

    The only way to make real money is to do something you enjoy. That low percentage of sites that make it aren’t the ones who are starting those business ore websites solely for the money. You find a niche and the website follows, not look for a way to make money, think of a niche and start a website. I just doesn’t work that way.

    Focus on wealth. Money can be used to measure wealth, but it is an imaginary thing. Do what you want and don’t think about the money and the money will come. The problem is that nobody wants to wait it out that long and start living out of fear. That failed website or that foreclosed home, etc. are results of your decision to live out of fear. If you’re doing what you love, you don’t have to think of it as waiting, just keeping your mind off this imaginary thing everyone’s agreeing on. The money will come, but you have to do what excites you and you have to be patient. Start a website based on that love of yours, but don’t go knocking door to door, offering yourself to them, that’s called begging. You get nowhere with that.

    This review sounds so hopeful. But, I need to add a little to it. Lets start with #1. Get an online job. Easier said than done. I have been through so many websites that really do provide a job. Problem is the pay is below min. wage. Here’s how it works. Said website provides you with a typing job. They pay you .45 cents to type 1000 words. They receive for that job 1.50. You get .45 cents.

    #2. Make money taking surveys. This works almost like #1. The Online survey company has big companies that hire them to get willing people to take said survey. The survey company pays in points. You may get 500 points for a survey, that equals about .50 cents. The survey company receives approximately 2.00 to 5.00 per survey they have you take. So you make around .50 cents for 45 minutes of your time.

    #3. Really?? Like #1 and #2

    #4. Make money with your own website. Well, that sounds great. Do your research. Only 3% online businesses survive. Many of the sites that survive started out as brick and mortar businesses first. Take a look at the gazillion sites out there. Over saturation to the hilt. So many dreams are being exploited. Only sites on page rank one and two have the chance to survive. So, if your product on your site has 1 million other competitors fighting for page rank one and two, you may want to rethink this. And 1000 of them have a lot more money than you do to achieve this, how far will you success go?

    Please think things through. The www has become a play ground for narcissists. They have dream to sell you for 100.00 or less. And there is no internet police to shut them down. If you want to work from home here is the best successful rout you can take. Go knock on doors. Tell local companies you can help them with billing, back ground checks, employee interviewing/pre screening and so forth. Make it attractive to them. Build a client base. You can do it! :)
