If your a writer, a designer, or just someone looking to make some extra money doing boring, repetitive tasks.

#1, Writing online.
The best way to earn money online.
Writing is the most sure-fire way to earn money online, if you're a freelance writer or a professional writer, writing is a fun alternative source of income. All you need to be an online writer is a good mind-set and proper grammar. Companies will pay you to review there products or write promotional articles structured around them. If you're more of a creative writer you can still earn money writing about whatever you want. There are websites such as Squidoo, HubPages, and Zujava that allow you to publish articles on any subject that you want. As long as your articles are popular on the site they are hosted on you will earn money from them. If you want to remain independent with your writing then you are better off starting a blog. Monetizing a profit from a blog can be tricky if you're not experienced with running a blog, I would suggest sticking with the article hosting websites instead of trying to run a blog. I've listed the top 5 websites below where you can write online for money.
#2, GPT websites.
The second best method to earning online.
GPT stands for "Get Paid To" these are websites that pay you to complete surveys, do offers, refer friends, play games, and just interact with the website. They are a great way to earn some extra money in your free time when your not inspired to challenge your mind with a more difficult method of earning money. There is no catch to earning money with GPT sites, all you have to do is follow the rules, complete offers, and make money, it really is just that simple. These websites are paid by advertisers for you to interact with there ads, complete surveys, watch promo videos, the GPT website then shares the profit they earned from the advertiser with you. GPT websites are great ways to earn money with very little effort. I've listed the top three GPT websites, that I've personally had the most success with.
#3, Stock photography
The third best way to earn money online.
Stock photography is a great method for earning money online for professional, hobbyist, and amateur photographers. If you own a camera, then this is a great option for you to bring in some extra income. A stock photograph can be a picture of anything, as long as it's high-quality and doesn't break any of the rules of the stock image website. You earn money every time your image is downloaded by someone off of the stock image website, with stock photography you can just upload an image and forget about it, and make money from it for the rest of the time that it remains uploaded. I've listed the best stock photography websites to get started off with below.
#4, Affiliate marketing
If you're already into the basics of earning money online, then you've probably heard of affiliate marketing. If you write for Squidoo then you probably have a better understanding of how the affiliate system works from writing articles. An affiliate system works by you directing costumers towards a product or service, when they sign up or purchase that product you earn an affiliated commission from that sale. If you're new to affiliate marketing you can set up an affiliate account, I've listed the best affiliate programs to sign up for below.
#5, Sell your old items online.
Selling your old and used items online is the fastest way to start making money online. If you have a lot of clutter laying around your house then you should organize it by what is sell-able and what isn't. Once you've figured out what you have that you can sell you should go about listing it for sale on Craigslist, Amazon, and Ebay. You can choose to sell locally or nationally, just keep shipping in mind. In addition to selling your own items online, ask around in your local community to see if anyone else has items that they would like to list online, I'm sure you can earn some money selling items for others.

#6, Freelance your skills online.
If you're a talented musician, artist, or writer then you can earn money freelancing your skills online. You'd be surprised what people are looking for others to do, perhaps someone wants a song written for promoting there business, or someone may want a design drawn up for a logo. There are websites like Elance where you can write a resume and list all of your skills, and browse through available freelance gigs all over the world. The best part about freelancing your skills on the internet is that is can be done internationally.
#7, Make money with YouTube videos
Creating videos on YouTube is extremely entertaining, and also can provide an additional source of income if your getting enough views on your videos. You earn money through ads that are placed on your videos, the more popular your videos are on YouTube the more money that you'll earn overall. This is something I've been wanting to try out for a while, I just haven't gotten around do it. YouTube videos are also great for promoting products for affiliate programs, or referral programs that you're a member of. YouTube gets millions of visitors every day so it is a great place to increase the traffic to your website with a promotional video.
#8, Promote for others.
Promoting is a highly needed service online. You can earn money by sharing articles, pictures, websites, and anything else that can be virtually shared. Promoters are highly needed, if you offer your services as a promoter you're bound to have a lot of people approaching you to help spread the word for there product.
#9, Make money designing websites.
Designing websites can be extremely lucrative if you have any talent with it. The internet is ever-expanding and small businesses are realizing that a website could be beneficial to there business. You can market yourself as a web-designer locally, if you don't know how to make a website already then you can read my article on creating free stunning websites to get you started. When looking for people in need of websites be sure to check craigslist for listings, and spread the word to local businesses that you can create websites at an affordable price. If you have no intention to be a web-designer you can send people you know who are interested in having a website created my way and I'll give you a commission of the project.
#10, Write an E-book
This is probably the most long term investment for your time that you can do to earn money online. Writing an e-book is a great way to earn money, through selling the e-book, it just takes patience to be able to write a book that will be popular and sell lots of copies. This shouldn't be your main focus of earning online, instead it should just be something that you do on the side when you have free-time. With an e-book you can write about literally whatever you want, I would suggest writing about something that's generally popular over something that just sparks your interest, you'll end up making more money off of it. I've listed some helpful lenses that will help you get started with your e-book below.
