Best Online Money Making Websites

It doesn’t take much time to run across someone pitching a “get-rich-quick” scheme online. We’ve all seen them – people who promise to show you how to make thousands at home in your spare time.


Guess what? Like any get-rich-quick scheme, it’s only going to make money for the person running the scheme.

That doesn’t mean there aren’t reputable ways to earn a little bit of money online during your spare time. There are many easy and legal ways to earn a few bucks on the Internet.  Here are some website that you can try: 

Complete online surveys for money

Here are our favourite paid survey sites. They’re completely free and have received a big thumbs-up from many of you. For maximum earnings why not set up a separate email account (so your personal one doesn’t get flooded with survey-related emails) and then register for free to all of them?

  • Valued Opinions – offers a big prize simply for registering
  • GFK MediaView – get paid for completing surveys and earn up to £100 a time from mystery shopping!
  • Toluna – convert points you earn into Amazon vouchers

  • GlobalTestMarket – pays $50 for every 1,000 points earned
  • Panelbase – earn between 25p and £10 per survey

YouTube

YouTube allows anyone to post nonexplicit videos on pretty much any topic they desire. Recording a video can be as simple as turning on the camera on your computer and hitting the record button. If you enable advertisements on your videos, you can earn money at a rate of about $1 to $3 per 1,000 video views. The more videos the have, the more views you can accrue, so this option really pays off if you record a lot of videos and build a viewership.

Elance

Elance is the Internet’s biggest marketplace for legitimate freelance work. And, it’s my personal favourite of all the websites in this list.
It provides a simple interface that allows you to search for jobs in any kind of niche. From Writing and Translation, to Web Design and Programming.
Basically, people post jobs they want doing on the website, and you submit a proposal for it. It’s that simple. 


Regardless of how much money you want to make, the possibilities are endless: there are freelancers on subscribed making $1,000 to $100,000 a year.

Pros: Free service. Simple to use. Easy to manage Tax Documents. Verified, trustworthy jobs.
Cons: Can be slow to become established. Bad Freelancers willing to work for $1-$2 an hour.

Make Money from Domain Names

Be an internet entrepreneur and buy domain names to sell on for profit.

It’s a great way to make money as the perfect URLs become harder to come by, and people and businesses will pay over the odds to get the one they want. You can buy domains using 123-reg.

This really is easier than it sounds and to get you started we’ve got three top tips from Sedo’s Chief Sales Officer, Liesbeth Mack-de Boer.

1. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears close to the ground for the next big thing. If you can get a domain name that corresponds to a new trend, you can make big money out of it further down the road.

2. Pick a quirky domain name, or a selection of URLs with the same theme – that way you’ll have built up a good portfolio.  It won’t cost you much, but a company in that area would pay decent money for the domains.

3. See what’s popular. Use Google to find out what people are looking for and which search terms are popular, that’ll inform your decision on which URLs to buy.

Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing allows anyone who has written a book on their own to upload it to Amazon to be sold on Amazon Kindle devices. Let’s say you write a novel and want to sell it. If you upload it here and then promote it online through social media or blogs, you can sell copies of your book and earn as much as a 70 percent return on each sale.

 Fiverr

Fiverr is a long established freelance site where everything costs a $5 minimum. It’s a simple and easy to use website, where you post the services you can provide: and if someone needs them, they’ll pay you to work.

It takes the traditional Freelance way of working and turns it on it’s head. It also ensures you get paid before you complete any work so that you never find yourself ripped off.
There is also scope to earn more than your $5 per job, with different levels for different services, such as: early delivery dates, extra work or ‘bolt-on’s for your services.
Pros: Protected payment before work. No marketing required. Work is on your terms. Quick and Easy to set up.
Cons: Lots of competition for work. Hard to establish a business. Have to do your own accountancy books. Not much scope to build a solid income.

Skillshare

Skillshare is a website where you can teach an online class and get paid for it. You record series of videos on a topic that you know about – popular subjects include crafts, film, fashion and cooking – and then participate on the Skillshare forums related to your class. In exchange, you receive a cut of the money from the people who take your class. No teaching degree is necessary to get started, and the site says teachers can earn an average of $3,500 a year.  

Freelancer

Freelancer is a ‘gameified’ version of the sites eLance and oDesk mentioned earlier. You have the ability to ‘level up’ by earning experience points from the projects you complete and the milestones you hit. There are no shortage of jobs on these sites and everything is channelled depending on your skills and abilities.

Freelancer doesn’t have a free option that is as flexible as it’s competitors, and you find yourself paying to take tests and complete certain tasks.

This plays into the hands of people posting projects, as it shows you’re committed and established, but it doesn’t really help you if you’re just getting started.
Pros: Fun and easy to use interface. Interactive spin on normal freelancing. More reliable jobs than any other source.

Fotolia

Fotolia allows you to sell photos you’ve taken for stock photography usage. For example, if a publisher is looking for a picture of a beach and you uploaded such a picture, the publisher can use Fotolia to purchase the rights to use that picture in its publication and you receive a cut of that money. For a photography hobbyist, this is a great way to earn a few dollars for some of your best photos.

Zirtual 

Zirtual is perhaps the most time-consuming, but most rewarding, option. With Zirtual, you sign up to be a Zirtual Assistant to a busy person. The person will send you things to do such as write emails, research a topic and summarize the findings, or personal tasks such as order flowers, manage a personal calendar or write handwritten notes. The starting base pay is $11 an hour, and Zirtual Assistants work weekdays full time. 

Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing

Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing allows anyone who has written a book on their own to upload it to Amazon to be sold on Amazon Kindle devices. Let’s say you write a novel and want to sell it. If you upload it here and then promote it online through social media or blogs, you can sell copies of your book and earn as much as a 70 percent return on each sale.

All of these websites offer great opportunities for anyone to earn some extra money online. It all depends on what you want to bring to the table in terms of time, money and effort.
