Ways to Earning Money Online for Beginners

Updated on October 10, 2011

There are a lot of options out there for people who would like to ways to make money online. For me, it has been something I have been working at for some years now. It is just important to remember, you should never have to give your money in order to make money. There are a lot of snake oil salesmen out there who are more than willing to take the little that we have for their own personal gain

But, fortunately, for all of us, there are options out there that are legit and are decent paying, if you are willing to put in a little bit of effort, you will be rewarded

Writing is always an option for making extra money online. There are lots of sites out there that offer this. Ehow, Associated Content, Squidoo, and Hub Pages to name a few. The biggest trouble with writing articles and creating this form of passive income is, it takes a lot of articles. You have to figure on at least 100 articles before you will start to see any real income being generated, and because of this I would suggest you start with just one of the sites I suggest.

You can also join PTC sites. These companies often offer several ways to make money. They can offer you paid emails, which is where they will send you random advertisement emails and if you click you earn a couple cents for your click. they do free offers, they do free trial offers of products, they will often do surveys and will often pay you to click on links. Most of these companies will also offer referral programs, meaning anyone you refer, you will earn an additional percentage of their earnings, thus also creating passive income. There are several companies that would be considered reputable. They are sites like, Inbox Dollars, Cash Crate, Project Payday, and Treasure Trooper.

There are also companies starting to pop up that call themselves social network sites like facebook and myspace. People string being the one that I use. These sites pay back a portion of the revenue earned by the company, to its members. People string pays 70% of its revenue back to its users. This is pretty nice, you get paid to do what you are already doing.

Now, I am in by no means one of them snake oil salesmen I talked about at the beginning of this article, but what I am is a person who would like to find other means to live his life. These are just a few of the methods I have found to earn a little cash on the side, and I hope that these ideas will help you do the same.

      I agree. I have more than 300 articles in Helium, that's how I manage to get $25 passive income every month.
