Who doesn't like money? I hope you do, as this article is going to teach you alot!

Who doesn't like money? Whether you admit it or not you probably want some spare change, and an easy way to get it too! Well don't worry, its actually a lot easier than you think to make money sitting in front of a computer or even a phone screen! I will give you 10 ways to easily get money online without a struggle!

#10: SurveyJunkie

SurveyJunkie is a very well-known site that rewards you for completing surveys! The surveys can range to a variety of things, from your interests or hobbies to your occupation! You can also complete their short profile surveys to unlock even more surveys that suit you! Every single survey will give you points differentiating on how long they take or the difficulty. The average payout for a survey is $0.45 and is the amount they use the most for their average of 7- 10 minute surveys. Each point on the website represents 1 cent, and the minimum cashout limit is 10000 points. ($10.00). Some of the surveys are boring, but every single one is different. Heck, if you have a lot of spare time you can even do some 60 minute ones for up to $10.00 each! If you do surveys consistently you can get a decent amount of "dough". I got about $4.00 on my first day! I would highly suggest SurveyJunkie as a reliable and easy way to get some pocket change fast!

#9: SliceThePie

If you love music this has got to be the site for you. I mean, whats better than listening to music and getting paid for it? (Pretty much!) Not only do you get to listen to your own favorite genres of music, but you get paid for it! In SliceThePie you are given a random song from a certain genre. You must listen to 90 seconds of the song, and then you leave a review and a rating out of 10. That's it! That being said, you must be leaving good quality reviews or your rank will go down. Your rank represents the quality of your reviews. The higher your rank, the more money you will make for a review! Generally at the lower ranks you are paid $0.01 to $0.05 per review. But as you rank up, you can start earning as much as $1.00 for a single song review! The only disadvantage to this site is that it has a relatively slow start while you rank up, and at the beginning you are earning little to nothing per review. But if you really put your time and dedication to it, you can be a song-reviewing millionaire! (Not literally!). SliceThePie is a great site for those music fanatics that want to earn money while listening!

#8: SwagBucks (And other task-reward giving sites!)

This one isn't only SwagBucks, as there are several sites just like this. But SwagBucks is essentially an expanded version of SurveyJunkie. SwagBucks offers you all sorts of things, including surveys! Things from downloading apps, entering trials, and almost anything else you can think of! Every task you complete gives you a certain amount of "SwagBucks", and eventually they can be cashed out for gift cards and other prizes that can be redeemed! Even though it does take a relatively long time to get valuable or useful prizes, this is a great place to burn off some spare time when you have nothing else to do. There is almost always something to do that entertains you (you can even play games and earn!). Registering is very easy and you don't have to earn just giftcards, you can redeem your SwagBucks for PayPal credit to purchase whatever you want on the internet! Overral, a very well-known and trustworthy site that is a great place to entertain yourself and even earn money while doing it!

#7: YouTube

We have all heard of YouTube, being the most popular video-streaming site on the internet! Created by Google, there was no doubt this platform would be successful. Chances are if you have watched YouTube, you have seen ads. The fact is, the revenue from these ads doesn't actually go to Google (though a small portion does). It goes to the creator of the video! Being a YouTube content creator is a great way to make money and even a living online! Plus, it wouldn't just be those ads, you can also get money from sponsorships or even your own merch! Though it is very difficult to create a living or even some money off of YouTube, if you have great commentating talent or are lucky enough to go viral, it could change your life! The brilliant thing about YouTube is there is something for everyone. You could make videos on gaming, vlogging, and thousands of other things! All you need is a topic that a large audience is interested in, and your pretty much good to go! Youtube is one of the best ways to make money on this list, but also the hardest. If you decide to get into this, good luck! You could "win big"!

#6: Start Your Own Blog!

Blogging is very similar to YouTube, it is very difficult to reach an audience big enough to make a decent amount of money, but it is definitely possible! Blogging is also very similar to YouTube in the way that you would make money from Google Adsense or other advertising platforms. Google Adsense puts advertisements on your website and you earn money for every person who views them! If you can create a popular blog with many fans, each time they visit your site you would get payed! In a way, blogging is the "text" version of YouTube. All you need is an interesting life and your good to go! (Literally!) As we stated before, it is hard to make money from a blog as it is hard to find a dedicated audience. We suggest putting things on your blog that will make a user want to come back so you can get more money! As cruel as it sounds, it is true! Things like giveaways, or including email letters to advertise your latest posts there is several possibilities! If you decide to get into blogging, we wish you luck! It is a tough journey, but if your good at it you can win big!

#5: Online Betting

We all know what betting is, and its high risk as well! Though with its high risk and the possibility to lose money instead of earn it, it also has the potential to make you filthy rich! There are so many ways to bet online. You can even bet on video games such as CS:GO matches on certain websites using skins! (If you have never heard of CS:GO, Google it! Its a fun game as well!) You can also play different betting games online such as Pokerstars, or even some more CS:GO games! Depending on your interests, you can almost always find a betting site to match what you like. Again, though betting can win you big, it can also lose you big, and we only suggest this if your willing to take the risk! But if you are, it could benefit you more than it won't!

Your halfway through! What do you think so far?

#4: Fiverr

Fiverr is a site where you can buy almost anything, and sell almost anything too! If you have any specific talent that other people might like, such as writing or even imitating Jesus, you are in luck! You can sell "gigs" on Fiverr, which are essentially tasks you can do for other people. There are many great things about Fiverr. There is a large audience of people looking for things they want done (I have even bought things off of it before!), and there is literally an unlimited amount of things you can do. I have even seen people design houses and whatnot for thousands of dollars! Of course, I doubt you would be designing houses but you can do small things too like writing an essay for someone or dancing in the forest screaming a message at the top of your lungs! The possibilities are endless and it can have a very high payout too! You can get as little as $5.00 just for completing a single task! On Fiverr your delivery time is also tracked, which is how fast you respond to customers orders. Get that up, and your rep will be much better and you will have more orders! We suggest Fiverr for anybody really, as long as you have a talent!

#3: Udemy

Are you skilled in a certain profession? Then Udemy is great for you! In Udemy you can create online educational courses for several things. A fantastic thing about Udemy is the prices of the courses. If you great a very good quality course, I have seen single courses been sold for up to $200.00 a pop! Udemy can be difficult to make money off of though. In order for people to purchase your course you must be really well educated and have a really good course. It can even be difficult to sell your courses when you are educated and when you do have a good course due to the vast quantity of them! If you have the special "touch" with Udemy and can sell your courses, this could be a great site for you! For a stupid person like me, however, this site isn't that useful from a seller's perspective. Hey! Maybe I could buy a course on how to make courses on Udemy!

#2: Affiliate Programs

Affiliate programs are a great way to make money, even though they are well buried on popular sites like Amazon. Affiliate programs allow you to make money from advertising products online. You will get a referral code, and every time someone purchases something from your referral code you get a commission from that sale! I can't give you that much advice on affiliate programs, as I have actually never done one myself. But not only is this a great way to make money online, like YouTube, you can actually make a living off of this as well. Though it might be difficult, with the right strategy and skill you can make a ton of money of off this concept and almost anybody can sign up for it too! If you scroll to the bottom of a site like Amazon or BestBuy, and several others, you can register in a couple minutes. This is a great way to make money if you are skilled and have a good strategy. There are many ebooks you can purchase that show you how to do this in an effective and profitable way. If you can get the hang of it, you could make a living right off of your computer!

#1: Writing on HubPages

Believe it or not, I am actually earning money just from you visiting my article! If you are good or have a passion for writing, this site is one of the best for you! The primary way to earn money on this site is writing an article, then joining their Adsense program where they will display Adsense ads on your article and you get a certain amount of the earnings! Not only this, but you can also join their Amazon program and get money from putting Amazon capsules in your article! (This ties into the affiliate program method). You write your article with a series of image, text, and other capsules then publish it. Your article will be given a score out of 100 then it is your job to advertise it on other social media such as Reddit (I have the most success on that), then you just wait for the "moolah"! Even if you don't like writing you can still dedicate yourself and earn from this site! Its brilliant!

Thanks for reading!

I thought Hubpages was the number one pick, whats yours? Leave your own list down in the comments, or feel free to ask me questions! You can also vote in the poll below to show what you felt of my list! Thanks for reading, and have a nice day!

      @Craig Marchant Thank you! I agree with your opinion on surveys and I never had much success either. I needed content to fill the composition :P

      Interesting reading. I've never had much luck with the whole doing surveys thing myself. It's just way to slow to make any meaningful money.

      I love however, that site is just fantastic, and you can get almost anything done or advertise your services there easy.

      Keep up the great work :) Looking forward to reading more from you.
