If you're looking for the best legit online income producing programs, then you still need to try a few out for yourself to find out what works for you.

A legitimate online income producing program that works for one person won't work for everybody simply because of the time, interest, commitment or even creativity required won't suit everybody. An online program still has to match your skills/abilities/time/space as an offline business e.g. starting an ironing service might work for somebody who loves ironing, lives in a busy town, has space and time to do it (along with collections/deliveries), but wouldn't work for somebody living 50 miles from the closest town in a house full of pets and smokers.

Certainly hubpages has the potential to make a good regular income, a residual income that allows you to pick your own hours, write about things that interest you and make money.

  • Affiliate marketing is the next thing which makes a lot of people money; you find a product to promote and you promote it.
  • Freelance work, where there is an increasing number of data entry for websites who are opening online stores, audio transcription, or jobs using Excel.

  • Blogging, create your own blog about something you're interested in and make money through affiliate marketing or Adsense.
  • Paid Surveys: I use these to generate actual cash - by signing up with as many as you can find, then setting aside an hour a day to do the surveys, you can generate a nice bit of cash, either to spend or to reinvest in software, tools or books you want to do something different. This is how I got started with no money.

Online Business - you can start your own online business from scratch, taking months to find out and research everything you need, build a website and set up the systems, or you can buy a ready made online business. There are always a lot of great ideas on ebay for instant online businesses to buy.

You just have to try out a number of things, read up on what's out there, then pick what's best for you.

For me it's all of the above - each one brings me in some money, which adds up to a good amount.

What to Avoid

There are a few things you should avoid - you probably already know that envelope stuffing jobs are a scam, many adverts for data entry jobs aren't real data entry jobs either (although there are a lot of freelance data entry jobs that are legitimate).

Work From Home Facebook

There are other ideas to be found in a Facebook page where I post occasional work from home ideas, as well as sharing some of the ways I am making an income working online. Real-Work-at-Home, or RealWAH:

      Never tried surveys but that puts me in the category of "don't knock it if you've never tried it". However, I am a firm believer that an income opportunity should never cost you to join and should provide everything you need to make it work, such as thecablegobblers.com

      Thank you for your very useful tips. I tried to to do survey and all I got 10 or 15 min for $0.10 or asked to be donated to charity or do survey for a chance to win. One day, now I really got into it, I received a survey for 30 min for $2.00 I thought aha now. When I was 3/4 through they cut me off saying they had so many people doing it and thank they have the info. I gave up. Anyway no offence mend. I will try these suggestions.
