You can try oDesk. I'm from Asia and I've been working at oDesk fulltime for a year now. So far so good... I'm earning more than what I earned from my office job. :) I'm earning at least $300 per week and I know a lot of people who earn more than what I do. You can visit my blog below for tips on how to get started at oDesk. :)
Yes...we can earn money from internet by doing online jobs like surveys.data entry jobs etc.We can also start business through online like reselling business,or do affiliate marketing,earn by writing articles,blogs,ad-sense etc.There are many legitimate ways to make money online.I work from my home and will share my experience.I have been into online business for the past few years,I do reselling business with http://www.goresellers.com/ ,I chose this business because there was no way to get scammed if we found a legit reselling company.It is very easy to make a good turnover because the cost for each service is fixed by reseller and also it has a fixed commissioned pay for each sale.The customer service and payment is handled by the reselling company and hence I just have to promote the services.Hope my experience will be useful for you.
