Five Easy Ways to Make Money Online

Updated on January 1, 2013

Five Free Ways You Can Make Money Online

I've been making money online since 2005. I realized many people were earning money working from home, so I decided to give it a try. With so many opportunities available, I decided to test as many as possible. It turned into a very lucrative experiment. After testing sites and their claims, I would write a review and post my earnings on my blog.

What were the results of my make money online experiment?

The results were fantastic. Of all the different methods people to use to make money, very few turned out to be scams. (Lucky for me?) I am going to share the methods to make free money that you can do as quickly as possible. There are more opportunities to make money online for those that have blogs and twitter accounts. I will be sharing more legitimate companies that have paid me in future hubs. Stay tuned!

Here are my top five free ways to make money online immediately. Ready? Here we go!

1. Make money sending tweets.

If you have a twitter account, you can make free money! Sponsored Tweets will pay you to send tweets to your followers. Once you are accepted, you choose how much to make per tweet. Payments are processed through paypal. Get all the details on How to Make Money Online Using Twitter.

2. Make money recycling old cell phones.

You can earn money by recycling cell phones. Sell your old cell phone or collect unwanted cell phones from others. (This can also be a great fundraiser!) There are sites that will pay you by check or paypal. The site I listed will pay your shipping fees. It's quick money and you're going green!

3. Make money blogging.

I've earned $1000.00s by writing reviews on my blogs and other sites. That's not even including the money I earn from Google adsense or affiliate links on my sites. Paid blogging can be very lucrative. This hub shows my Blogsvertise earnings for March 2012. This is just one of the many companies I use to earn monthly payouts. Do you have a blog? Sign up today!

4. Make money selling services that use your internet skills.

If you can create a blog, a website or build backlinks you can make money. You can create a blog and post your services on forum signatures, social media profiles and article directories. Just make sure you can deliver what you promise. Two sites that I have shared here are Zeerk.com and Gigbucks.com. I like these because you can get paid the same day. That's right, unlike Fiverr.com that makes you wait. (Fiverr.com made me wait 30 days. When payout day came, they kept my money and closed my account. Beware.)

5. Make money by self publishing your book.

If you know how to do something very well and you can write a tutorial for it, you can self publish your book on Amazon. Many people have made lots of money selling their info product for $3.99 a book. Always remember your knowledge is valuable!

Which is the most profitable way to make money online?

The most profitable method I've used is selling direct advertising on my sites. It is easy and quick. To be able to do this, you must have a site with high page rank and a substantial amount of readers. I will elaborate on this on an upcoming hub. Be sure to subscribe, so you will not miss the details!

Now you know how you can make money online! All you need to do is take action. Making money online is not that difficult. It's a matter of finding two things: the right fit for your talents and the legitimate sites. I hope you enjoyed this hub. Please, take the time to vote for it and to share it with friends and family by email, twitter, facebook or your favorite social media site.

Now go put this into action and make some money!

Let everyone know how you've made money online!

      @maheshpatwal There are a ton of ways to make money online. I haven't tried all of them because I found a few that really deliver consistently. I am building a large stream of passive income with the site before I move on to another that has proven to be just as successful. Good luck in all your endeavors! ;)

      @snigdha.s You will want to read about the other legitimate sites I use to make money online. There are a few reviews here, but most are on my other site : www.getting-out-of-debt.info I get payments throughout the month from different sites that pay me to take surveys, test products, send tweets, write reviews and more. Anyone can do it. Check out my profile and my other site for all the free info you will need to get started. Good luck and thanks for voting and sharing my hub! ;)

      This is an excellent Hub and i do agree with you that one needs to diversify. Alongwith Hubpages I also started writing on blogger, bukisa and webanswers. Haven't been very active on those sites because I did not see great results. Had been awarded 11 times on webanswers but no revenue so that discouraged me to right there. Bukisa closed my account. Had heard of Linkworth a year back but was not very convinced so did not try it. Your Hub encouraged me to try other sites. Thanks for sharing. Voted up

      @rajan jolly These are just some of the ways I earn income online. It's important to diversify so you don't depend on just one site. You never know what Google is going to do next! Good luck!

You can do one per day, per blog. Check it out right away. Good luck!

      @Carrie Terry I don't know if yo're aware, but there are companies that make upfront payments to bloggers that write reviews. I get paid monthly. I wrote about one I use here, the rest of them are on my blog. You should check it out because it's a great way to supplement your income while writing hubs. Payments are processed through paypal.
