How to make money online

Updated on April 3, 2015.

Everybody wants to know how to make money online. Money may not buy happiness but it buys food and a whole lot of fun stuff.

There is money to be made in so many different areas of the internet. Hosting, SEO, advertisements, and so many other ways.

The average person doesn’t have time to start a hosting company, or build up SEO status, they just want to pull in some extra spending money. Christmas is around the corner, and this is where a lot of people are going to be looking to make and spend extra cash.

If any of this sounds about right for you, I recommend checking out a few different types of sites. I recommend that you focus on only one of each type of site to get the best results from each.

This is the real deal. This isn’t that fake crap you find on the eBook sites, and you don’t have to pay to join.


First, check out a GPT site such as one of these three to see which one best suits your tastes:

InstaGC — Instant gift card payments for Starbucks, Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and more.

CashCrate — Cash (Check/Cheque) payout at $20, other prize types/options available (Amazon, Starbucks, etc.)


Second, check out a search and win site. This is great because everybody uses search engines, so why not get paid for it?

SwagBucks — Search & Win option with multiple other ways to earn, and multiple prize options available (Amazon, eBay, and countless others…)

ZoomBucks — Another Search & Win site with tons of prizes and ways to earn. Edit August 5, 2016: Zoombucks has been replaced by Grabpoints. Check out my post about it here!


Third, check out a good survey site. I don’t mean the long, horrible surveys that never seem to end. This group has a great setup:

InstantCashSweepstakes — You’re not going to get paid for every survey, but they’re quick and easy. You win at random, and you can win in the daily and 4-hour drawings. Cash out at $2, pays via PayPal.

PaidViewpoint — Get paid for every survey. Cash out at $15, pays via PayPal.


Fifth, if you use a smart phone, you should check out:

Tapporo — This is now also available for iPhone/iOS users, as well as Android users. Just download the app Tapporo on your device and get paid to download and try new apps, play games, watch videos, and more. Remember to use this coupon/invite code to get started with a startup bonus: TAPJB1597

International Sites

When I think of “International” in regards to GPT sites, the first two sites that come to mind are:

CashCrate

CashCrate pays via Check, and also has prizes such as Amazon gift cards, and more.

PrizeRebel

PrizeRebel pays via Amazon gift card, PayPal, and more.

 

Not every site allows for international signups, and there may be less offers than there are for US signups, but there are definitely ways to make money on international sites. Once you’ve completed all of the offers available to you, referring other members is a great way to earn money. Both of these sites have a great referral system as well as great payout options. They’ve both been around for a long time and have good/known reputations online. Go ahead and check them out! Click the links/banners above to see for yourself.

CashCrate

How about something new but old? I’ve been posting about most of the same sites for a while. Some come and go but this site‘s been around a while.

It’s worth checking out. According to their FAQ page: CashCrate has been around since 2006 and has over 2 million members worldwide.

They also have payment proof available.
