How to make money Online

Make Money Online

Making Money On-Line Free – Is that possible?

Yes it is, there are a few ways you can make money online for free. We will look at a few of these, one thing about trying to create an extra income online is that you can work from the comforts of your home while choosing the hours per day, week and month you would like to work.

With a computer it’s possible to work anywhere, so you are not limited to having to stay in your home office.


I looked into MySurvey where you complete surveys and get paid. It sounds good, but you really have to spend a lot of time working it in order to earn an income.

You will earn points for every survey you complete – earning between 5 and 200 points per survey. Once you have earned 1,000 points you can redeem them for rewards at Hudson’s Bay, the Gap, Shop.NHL.com, Groupon or Paypal.

Every 1,000 points equals a value of $10.00.

Extra points can be earned by participating in referral programs.

So this is a way to earn extra money if you want to work on your computer. I could be one of a few programs you may want to try.

Cash Crate is another place you can earn income from completing surveys online, more money is made as you refer more people to cash crate. This company has been around since 2006 and has 2 million members, there are no fees to join so if you like completing surveys and have some friends to refer, it might be something to look into.

Selling Things

You could sell things online through Kijiji, Ebay or Craigslist. Get rid of all those things that you have accumulated over the years. Now that your retired, you find you don’t need them, so try to make a little extra cash. Purchasing items from Garage sales or Flea Markets and reselling is also something to look at.

Sell Homemade Goods

If you are a crafts person or artist, it may be a good time to go to craft fairs, farmers markets or sell you handmade crafts on Etsy, Ebay or Amazon. These are great sites for selling handmade items.

Get Paid to Write

Companies like Wise Bread and Text Broker will pay you to write articles.

I am familiar with Text Broker and find it to be a great company to work with. Authors are paid 1.50 and up per word, when a client submits a request for an article they can search for authors by Category, Education, Languages, Types of Writing and Industry Experience.

They can also select a price range per word starting at 1.5 cents per word

Once the search is complete the client will be given a list of writers giving them the following information:

  • Name or pen name of author
  • Authors latest activity
  • The price of direct orders
  • Rating – clients have rated the authors 1-4
  • The number opf articles the author has written
  • The rejection rate for article written

If you are a writer or have a passion for writing, this may be a good way to earn some extra income. Even at the lowest rate and an article of 1000 words would bring you $15.00, so depending on your skill and how many articles you could write in a week, this could really help supplement your income.

Create a Website or Blog

Creating a website or a blog is a great way to earn extra money. There are sites out there like Wealthy Affiliate where you can create free websites and use tools like Google Adsense to promote advertising – you can earn extra money this way. I have a friend that was making $600 a month through Google Ads so I know that it works.

I myself am making some money from Adsense a short time after building my website thru Wealthy Affliate, this program walks you through setting up your free website and everything else you need to know to earn money from your site.  I would recommend checking this site out.

Another way to make money from a website is to sell products. Write reviews or articles about certain topics or products and link back to Amazon or another affiliate program. When a person clicks on your link you will be paid a percentage of the item they purchase.

Once your website gets Google attention, your pages are ranked and if they are among the first to come up when someone is searching for a topic, the chances of them clicking on one of your advertisements or products for sale is high….and you earn money.

In closing, doing surveys, selling online, getting paid to write, or writing your own content to your own website or blog and attracting an audience that will click on ads or purchase products from your site. These are some ways you can earn a little extra cash to help out when you retire, are out of work, want to stay home with the kids, what every the reason. You can earn money online for free.

  1. In my opinion making money online is the most efficient way of earning a living. As you said you can do it from anywhere at any time. You’re your own boss and no job can beat that.

    You are in control of your own financial future. The possibilities are endless. It all depends on how much effort you are willing to put in. And retirement can come up quick so you may as well be ready. Great post.


  2. I think working from home is the way to go. There are tons of “get rich quick” schemes out there you need to be careful about. How do you know what is the right program for you? How can you avoid online scammers? Great article. I am glad I came across it.

    • Hi thanks for your comment. I too think working at home is the way to go.  I’ve been working with Wealthy Affiliate and have 3 websites running to date.  I would really recommend this program.  It’s reasonably priced, with all the training a person needs, help and able to build more than one free website. 

  3. Thanks for this nice and interesting article. I fully agree with you, creating a website or a blog is indeed the best way to earn extra money.

    You’ve also pointed out a few online earning methods as well. But personally, I’m not that high about surveys. I’ve joined in some a few years back and I couldn’t find it helpful rather a waste of time. But after going through your article I think I’ll give it a try. I haven’t heard of Cash Crate, I’ll definitely try that too.

    • I too think a blog or website is the best way.  Surveys take more time, but you can make money with them as well.  I’ve tried some and did some research and Cash Crate seems to come up as being the best.
