Here are the ways you can earn extra money working from home and online:

Money Making Ideas You Don’t Want To Pass Up.

1- Take Paid Surveys – Survey Spot

Doing online surveys for money could indeed be the easiest method to make money online for many people.

Market research companies get paid from manufacturers and companies to gather feedback from their consumers, which they do by conducting online surveys.

They, then, share some of that revenue with their members who take part in online surveys they conduct.
Although, paid survey scams have made it harder for people to find legit surveys sites to work with, there are still lots of legitimate paid surveys that pay for your opinion.

2- Get Paid to Read Emails – InboxDollars

As the title suggests, you can get paid for reading emails.

Everyday you will get paid emails in your inbox with links to different websites, which you will have to click and view for a few seconds.

It’s Not a whole lot of cash, but it’s something.

3- Get Rewarded to Complete Offers – Cash4Offers

Another option that is both easy and quick is getting paid to do free offers.

Reward programs or, GPT (stands for Get Paid To) as they are known, are sites that pay their members for doing variety of things.
Basically, you are compensated for doing things that you already do online in some way or another-signing up for freebies, registering with interesting sites, shopping, visiting different websites, etc.

GPT sites are like the middle man, they get paid from advertisers to drive leads (you) to their site. They, then, give a percentage of what they earn from their advertisers, to you (members).

4- Become a Mystery Shopper

Mystery shopping is becoming a popular method for companies for evaluating the performance and customer service skills of their employees.
Although, there are a lot of different opinions about this, mystery shopping is actually growing as an industry.

You will be assigned to shop and dine in different places and report your experience back.

Depending on specific assignments, you can expect to be paid anywhere from $40 to $300 or more per assignment.
Of course, the amount that you spend buying goods and services will be reimbursed. Sometimes you get to keep the item you bought at no charge to you.

5- Play Games (Game Money) – Cash Dazzle

Yes you can actually get paid to play online games.

On game sites like Farm Gold and Second Life, you can make virtual money which can be exchanged for real money.

I am sure you have heard of Ansche Chung, the first person who become a millionaire exchanging her virtual money earned from Second Life for real money (worth over a million dollar).

6- Do Freelance Writing

One of the most popular options when it comes to Internet money-making is freelance writing.

You don’t need any money to invest, there is no need to own a website, (although having one helps) and best of all, you can make quick money.
In most cases, you get paid the same day you finish the project.

There are tons of places online where you can offer your writing service to others. There are even some websites that pay you for writing exclusive content for them.

7- Become an Affiliate Marketer

This is by far one of the top choices for a web-based business.
You are basically selling other people’s stuff for a commission.

You can find digital products like e-Books and short reports to promote, on sites like ClickBank and PayDotcom.

8- Surf the Web

This is one of the earliest GPT style sites that created an opportunity for anyone to earn few cents at a time by visiting advertiser’s websites for a set amount of time (usually less than 10 sec).
You can’t really call it earning money, but at the same time, there is not much work required either.

9- Sell Stock Photos

If you like photography and enjoy taking interesting pictures, there are a bunch of websites known as Stock photography Sites where you can upload your images and receive a commission each time someone downloads an image of yours.
The good thing about using stock photography as a way to pocket a few bucks, is that it’s passive income. You upload the picture once, but you keep getting rewarded each time somebody downloads it.
Imagine the potential of having 100s of images on 5 or 6 stock photography sites.

10- Upload Your Files to File Sharing Sites

Very similar to stock photography option, but it’s files and documents instead of pictures.

There are a couple of document sharing sites that you can upload any kind of file you own to

Every time someone downloads one of your files, you make a few cents.
Files can be in almost any format, TXT, PDF, and everything in between.

11- Review Products and Websites

Set up a website or a blog, and start reviewing stuff.]
Website owners and bloggers will pay you to post a review of their site on your site. It helps them get the word out, and helps you get the dough.
You can also review products you are an affiliate of, on your site, linking to the merchant’s site using your especial affiliate link, so that whenever someone buys the products using your link, you get your commission.

12- Get Paid to Search

Search engines are big money makers. No wonder every day new search engines pop up everywhere.

But since they’re not as big as Google and Yahoo, they use rewards as a way to entice users to search on their site.

You won’t make a lot of money fast, but it’s a good chunk of change for what you already do anyway.

13- Sell on eBay

Almost everyone knows the potential of becoming an eBay seller, and you are probably tired of hearing about it.
But the truth of the matter is that eBay is a really good online business opportunity.

The best part about launching an eBay store is that you don’t really need to invest financially to get started.

Start by gathering your unused stuff around the house, clean them up, take a few nice photos, and list them on eBay.

No mater how much money you end up making by selling your unwanted stuff on eBay, it’s still better than letting them dust in your garage!
Once you get the hang of it, you can do the same for your neighbors, friends, and family members, for a small fee.

And if you really want to scale it up, find out what are the hot selling items on eBay, find a wholesaler, buy them in bulk which comes out way cheaper, then sell them individually for a profit.

14- Mine Craigslist

Craigslist is one of the most visited websites on the planet, and that creates an opportunity like no other for anyone who is creative and not afraid of taking action.

The easiest way to make a buck with Craigslist is to simply pick free times in the Free section, and sell them right back on CL for a profit.

For example; there are always tables, chairs, beds, and all kinds of wood works that people are giving way free. You just have to go pick them up, freshen them up a bit, perhaps put a fresh new coat of paint on them, and you have yourself a piece that’s worth some cold hard cash.

15- Design Logos

Hundreds of new websites and blogs are born everyday.

Most of them will need a logo.

But not every site owner knows how to make a logo.

Make different kinds of templates and make it easy for people to use them.

20- Become a YouTube Star

One way to use YouTube is to use it as a tool to make yourself known.
In this age of YouTube and instant super stardom, it’s not very far-fetched to think you can become a star if you can sing.

YouTube and other video sharing sites make it possible and easy for anyone to have a chance to be discovered by record label companies.
Of course, there are other ways to use YouTube as a money-making platform as well.

For example; you can create product review videos, place your affiliate link in the video, and earn commission for every sale that is generated by your link.

21- Make MySpace Backgrounds

They are all over the Internet, those ads for MySpace background!
And that means only one thing, there is still a market for MySpace backgrounds!

With the huge interest in videos online, there is always room for more.
Create interesting videos of yourself or whatever and upload them to sites like Revver and Break.

They will share a percentage of their ad revenue with you. Plus, you get something for each download as well.

In order for a website or blog to be successful and generate revenue, it needs traffic.

There are many ways to work on traffic.

One way is to submit your site to website directories, which is very tedious and time-consuming. That is why many webmaster and blogger who are busy with other aspects of running their online business, hire people to do it for them.

That’s where you can come in. Offer to submit their sites to directories, for a fee.

Use forums like SitePoints and DigitalPoint to offer your service to webmasters.

As more online based businesses are born every day, the demand for virtual assistants is growing as well.

People use virtual assistant for research, finding things, doing time-consuming tasks, making phone calls, and much more.

Again, you can use webmaster related forums and/or forums that online business owners hang out at, to advertise your service.

I’ve seen so many people make a living (and they still do) by using this simple strategy.

27- Host Online Forums

Use software like SebFlipper to host hundreds of separate forums from a single web server.

Then charge forum owners to host their forum for them.

Alternatively, you could offer free hosting, but under one condition, you get to show your own ads (be it AdSense, affiliate products, or whatever else) on their forums.

Most People have problems with installing different kinds of applications.
If you are good at installing a particular app or asoftware, why not earn some extra money while helping others!…

There are many free blogging platforms you can use at first.
When you get comfortable, then pay for your own hosting and domain name.
You can blog about anything you like, from your weird uncle Bob, to politics, your weight loss plan, your lovely girlfriend, to finding a job, how much you hate paying taxes, and everything in between.
No matter how bizarre and unusual your blog is, there is always an audience for it.

You can monetize your blog to generate revenue by displaying AdSense ads, selling affiliate products, selling your own stuff, selling advertising space, etc.
However, contrary to popular belief, becoming a pro blogger and making a living as such, takes a lot of work and time. You have to be patient and willing to put a lot of time and effort into it.

Focus groups are basically the same as paid surveys, but unlike paid surveys most focus groups are conducted in a physical location.

Focus group studies are held in most major cities.

You will be in with a group of other selected people, discussing and answering questions about whatever product or service the study is about.
You can expect to make between $60 to $250 for an hour to a full day of study.

32- Become a Domain Reseller

Reselling is selling domain registration for big domain registration sites like TuCows, which makes it easy for you to start your own private label domain registration.

You get compensated not only for the initial sale, but for renewals thereafter as well.

33- Create and Sell e-Books

You can make e-Books about anything.

It’s not as hard as you think.

Look at some e-Books that are selling for $50 -$100 or even more, and you see what I mean (most of them are crap, but people do pay for them!).
Got tasty recipes that you have learned from your grand ma!?
Turn all that knowledge into a mouth-watering e-Book with step by step guide on how to make those recipes.

The best part is that it won’t cost you a penny.
That’s right, you can write and create an e-Book for free!

34- Do Small Tasks on Amazon Mechanical Turk

It’s one of the biggest micro freelancing sites on the planet, and it allows millions of people around the world to earn additional cash doing simple and sometimes rather strange tasks that can not be done by machines and computers.

Tasks such as differentiating pictures from text, rewriting a sentence, pointing out difference in 2 seemingly identical images, transcribing audio files, liking someone on Facebook or following them on twitter, and so on.

However, the reality is that most tasks don’t pay much.

So, don’t expect to quit your day job.

Nonetheless, MTurk is a good option for those looking to grow their bank account (or PayPal in this case!) whenever there is a few hours to kill.

35- Review Software

Websites like SoftwareJudge will pay you for using and reviewing any of the software available in their collection.
Write honest and detailed reviews, and you increase your earning potential.

Find that “something” and use your knowledge about it to offer answers and advice to people who are not familiar with the subject, on paid to answer sites.

37- Build Your Own Forum

Forums are some of the most visited kind of sites.

As humans, we are social animals, and that applies even in the cyber space.

For a smart entrepreneur, that means opportunity!

You always liked talking about politics and getting your 2 cents heard, about the happening in the political world, why not translate that passion into an online business!

Create a forum around politics or whatever topic excites you.
Get people to join your forum by promoting it on other forums you participate in, and also by posting controversial and attention grabbing posts.

Once you start to receive some decent amount of traffic, monetize the space with related ads.

You can also do what many successful forums do, create an especial section on the forum where in order to get in, regular members have to pay a small fee.

An example of that would be the WarRoom section of the famous WarriorForum, which only paid members have access to.

38- Do Data Entry

Google pays people to take photos of businesses and enter basic data, such as hours of operation.

Know how to make a software?

Then start developing software and plugins.

One of the hottest plug-in markets is the blogging platforms like WordPress and Blogger.

Use forums to find out what bloggers need that you can make a plugin for.
Create your plugin or software and set up a free blog to advertise it.

40- Do Paid Forum Posting

As I mentioned above, building online forums can be a great source of income, but new forums have hard time attracting members. People are more likely to join your forum if your forum looks busy and there are already other people participating in it.

That’s where paid forum posters come in.

As a paid forum poster, you get paid for every new thread and post you participate in.

On average, you can earn $0.25 per post.

41- Become a Member of Revenue Sharing Forums

If you like participating in forums, or are already a member of any forum, look for “Ad Share” sign in your user CP.

Some forums offer what is called “Ad Share” program, where they share the revenue earned from ads displayed on the forum, with their members.
And if you already spend time on a forum that does offer Ad Share, you might as well take advantage of the opportunity to make a few dollars.

42- Translate Documents

Bilinguals are always on demand.

If you speak a second language, you can use it to make money.
Use classified ads sites and even freelancing sites to find clients who may need to translate documents and files from one language to another.

43- Sell on Fiverr is one of the fastest growing micro freelancing sites that has attracted lots of attention recently, mainly becouse thousands of average Joes are using it to make a living charging a mere $5 for a variety of services and products.

Simply register for free, and create a gig offering people your service.
Whether it’s singing a song for them, calling their kids, pretending to be Santa, teaching them a Spanish phrase, making a Facebook fan page, or whatever else, people pay you to do these things for them.

You will be amazed how easy it is to turn the most weird and creepy things into a gig that makes you 5 bucks over and over again.
