Oh, by the way there are lots more ways but these should get you started.

1.   Ghostwriting articles:
You have to have some writing talent to ghostwrite articles.

You do need to be organized, able to research topics quickly, summarize the main points and write the article in a clear way, with correct spelling and grammar.

The article length can range from 200 words to 1000 words or more.

Payment is usually by the word. For beginners, a 500 word article can be sold for about $5.00.

An accomplished ghostwriter can charge up to $50 for a 500 word article.

2.   Design Graphics
Web masters need headers, banners, footers, and ebook covers.

If you're artistically inclined build up a portfolio of your graphics and offer your services.

3.   Post on forums

It has been shown that people don't want to post on forums unless there are already posts. New forum owners pay people to post comments, start threads, and respond to other threads in an effort to get some forum action going.

As the forum grows, the level of posting increases until paid posts aren't necessary.

Forum topics have a huge variety. There's probably a forum for just about any subject.

Usually a paid poster has to have at least some knowledge of the subject to post relevant comments. There can be a minimum word count for the posts.

Posts of "I agree," "Me too," and "Thanks for the info," are too short and don't add anything to the discussion, so forum owners don't want to pay for them. Posting on forums doesn't pay a lot, perhaps as little as 10 posts for a dollar.

To get started in making money by posting on forum, just visit and type on your search bar “get paid to post on forum” and you will see a list of where you can start making money there.

4.   Post on blogs

You can be paid to post comments on blogs much the same way you can be paid to post on forums.

Pretty much the same criteria applies, the posts can't be too short and have to be relevant to the subject matter.

To get the sites, just visit and write on the search engine
“get paid to post comments on blogs” and you will see the vast places you can make money by just posting comments

5.   Writing Articles for Pay

There are sites that pay for content. Most of the sites require that you post your article first and wait for a buyer to come by to purchase your articles. buys the article from you. The pay is minimal from $3 to $5 per 500 word article.

However there are occasions where Associated Content has paid up to $50 per article. The articles can be submitted on an exclusive basis, meaning they aren't and won't be posted anywhere else, or nonexclusive, which means you've used the article elsewhere. 10

It takes a day or two for Associated Content to review the article and make the offer.

You are not required to accept the offer and can withdraw the article.

It takes another two days for the article to be published and then two or three days for Associated Content to make the payment to you.
Websites that pay for articles:

 There are a number of sites you can post articles, tips, or essays to.

You get paid a share of the earnings of the ads that show up with your article.

The more popular your article, the more views, the more revenue you can earn.

Sites that share ad revenue with writers


6.   Pay Per Sale, Affiliate Programs, and Commissions

You're simply selling someone else's product through your marketing efforts, whether it's your blog or website, and you receive a sales commission when the sale is completed.

Most of these products are informational, either an ecourse, software, or ebook.

Quite a few of the affiliate products pay more than a 50% commission.

The smart product owners offer banners, buttons, sales copy, and even articles that you can use to promote with. is one of the most established programs.

Commission Junction ( is another source. is the latest and you can start promoting products here.

You can visit
All of the above make the payments to the affiliates so you don't have to worry whether the product owner will pay.

 PayDotCom is a program which uses PayPal as the payment method. The product owner makes the decision to pay the affiliates and has to authorize PayDotCom to do so.

Many products offer their own affiliate program independently. Look for one with a solid history of payment.

You can also become an affiliate of to sell books and consumer products such as jewelry, televisions, or other consumer items. The percentage 11 commission is much lower, but sometimes the retail price is high enough to make up for it.

7.   Develop Your Own Product

This is the way you can make real money on the Internet which I have used severally and as you read, I am still making the bucks from Americans, Britons and Asians.

 People look to the Internet and the search engines to find information on how to cure a problem they have or find a solution.

Develop a short report, 2500 words or so, a long report, 2500 to 5000 words, or an ebook  7500 words and up. You could also develop an ecourse that's a combination of emails, an ebook, chats, and perhaps conference calls. The report doesn't have to be Internet related. People are looking for cures for insomnia, crying babies, weight loss, stress reduction and many more problems. Resources:

8.   Develop Your Own Product with PLR

Buy a package of Private Label Rights (PLR) articles all on the same topic. There should be at least 4000 to 5000 words of material to call it an ebook.

If the articles don't lead into each other very well, call the ebook 10 Tips to xxxxx-.

 Each article would be one tip. Use the title of each article as a chapter in your table of contents.

Have a cover graphic made for the book cover. Private label rights material from a number of websites, such as Private Label Report.

9.   Record the PLR as an Audio, or record your own product as an Audio

That gives you two products for the price of one.  While I was doing my training, I was recording it and I sell how I made $205 within 2 hours while in training for only N5,000 so people can also use it and implement the same principle as I have done it.

10.   Get Paid to --- Take Surveys, Receive Offers, Read Email

First rule: Don't pay someone to find out information about the "Get Paid To" companies. There are too many sites which falsely represent that you will be paid cash for taking surveys, referring visitors, or accepting offers.

Some of these offers require a credit card. You sign up for a free month of XYZ movies, get paid $15 for accepting the offer and provide your credit card number. If you don't cancel the offer your credit card will be billed, and you can't cancel immediately, or you won't be paid.

Usually you have to reach a minimum level of earnings to receive a check or deposit to your Paypal account.

And the minimum level is nearly impossible to earn. Some of the surveys can be completed quickly and some take an hour or so to complete.

Most of the money is made through referring other people, not through completing the surveys or accepting the products yourself.
But let me give you the reliable GPT sites: they include,,, etc. You do not need to make a payment to start here.
11.   Blog Your Way to Beaucoup Bucks.

Blogging is a website (don't worry no website skills needed) that you update every day with posts about your chosen subject. Visitors can comment on your posts for others to see. You can run your affiliate marketing with your blog and you can also use your blog to market your business as well as add pay per click programs like google adsense.

Using your blog as a billboard

There are several websites that will pay you to post product reviews on your blog.

They are paid by the company that owns the products. The products can range from consumer durable goods, consumable goods, or just about anything you can think of.

The blog has to be approved by the company and has to remain up for a specified length of time. There usually has to be a qualifying statement that your post is a paid advertisement.
12.   Using your blog as a review site
Another way to use your blog is to post product reviews of affiliate products. When someone buys the product you're paid a commission. You can post reviews of books you've read that are available on and link to the books as an affiliate.  
Ads on your blog
If your blog has somewhat of a following in a certain niche and gets a reasonable amount of traffic, you can use pay per click (PPC) ads to generate some revenue. The more traffic to your blog, the higher the potential for click through and the more money you can earn. AdSense by Google is a very popular PPC company but there are others. You can also use a blog to sell products as an affiliate., as well as are just a few of the free sites where you can quickly and easily set up your blog. Blogger will be used as an example to setting up your blog.

13.   Sell the Blog
This is called site flipping.
You can have the ebook on

Set up a blog on its own domain using unique content. Ad affiliate programs, and AdSense revenue then sell the blog

14.   Submitting Links to Articles, Websites and Blogs to Social Networking Sites
Submit links to other people's articles, etc. to the social networking sites. The pay isn't terrific, usually no more than a couple of dollars per article. You'll have to set up an account at each site. Below is a list to get you started.

With a bit of research you can find quite a few more. Offer the service on Digital Point the same as you would offer to ghost write articles.

Setting up the accounts at the social networking sites will probably take a couple of hours.
You need your client to tell you the url of the article/website, title, brief description or first paragraph of the article, category, and tags or key words.

Social Bookmarking sites

15.   Posting Ads for other people
One of the free ways to drive traffic to your own site, or blog, is to post classified ads on ad sites. Craigslist is one of the most popular, and it seems effective, of the free ad sites. It is city specific, meaning you can only post your ad to one city at a time.

But if you're clever and reword the headline of the ad, and the body of the ad, you can post to a number of different cities as long as you use a different ad for each city.

You can also post ads for people and get paid for it. The pay is minimal, but the work doesn't take long after you've set up accounts at the different ad sites.
Other Classified Ad Sites Include:

16.   Squidoo Lenses
Think of Squidoo as a place where you can get a free one page - but it can be a very long one page – website. You can earn money on squidoo by selling affiliate products through, earning Adsense revenues and linking to your own products. You share the revenues you earn with squidoo.

Now go to and get yourself a lens. Set up your bio in your bio module and link to your product or website in that module.

Now write a 250 to 500 word essay using your key word phrase at least three times. The essay should be relevant to your product or niche. In the essay, create a link to your product, affiliate product and/or to your website.

You might want to use a teaser phrase to encourage people to click on the link. Add a poll and an amazon module, then add another text module with links to your other products or affiliate products. Add a Google news feed module. Then another text module and finally end with a guestbook.

This may sound complicated but all the modules are clearly explained and it's really a matter of point and click to populate your lens with interesting products.

17.   AdSense
Google, through their AdSense program, offers paid advertising through the use of text linked ads placed on websites. These ads can also be placed on blogs. Advertisers hope to convince visitors to click on the text ad and visit their own websites through these text linked ads.

The advertisers pay Google for every visitor that clicks through. Google passes on some of the money to the owner of the websites where the click originated. This is known as PPC or pay per click. Savvy Internet marketers build websites on topics that have a high PPC with the sole purpose of earning money. Some of these sites known as MFA or Made For AdSense contain little or no redeeming content. The website's owner's intent is to place high in the search engines for a niche key word phrase. Say "Natural Cures for Whatever." People have a tendency to only look at the first page of results when searching. They click on the "Natural Cures for Whatever" site. When they arrive there is little information, so in an effort to leave the site quickly, they click on one of the text linked ads to navigate away. A better philosophy is to make the site content rich to attract visitors and establish a level of trust. The visitor feels comfortable and when they've found the information they needed they are more likely to click on one of the text based ads.

Once your money is a minimum of $100, google will send you your cheque to Nigeria and you pay it into your domiciliary account and it clears within 30 days.
18.   Set Up a Website and Sell the Site
Find a simple website template. Add content based around a niche. Then set up AdSense and choose additional affiliate products. Once the site achieves some sort of pagerank on Google, sell the site on Ebay. Pagerank is a value that Google assigns to the site that recognizes its importance. It ranges between pr0 and pr10. Or you can try the Warriors Forum, Digital Point: or Site Point, If you don't know html you can use to set up a blog that looks very much like a website. You can also hire someone to do the coding for you. Another alternative is to use a wysiwyg what-you-see-is-what-you-get- program. Most of them are relatively easy to use.

19.   Buy and Sell Domain Names
The trick is to select names that have a market, buy low and sell high. Think of it as online real estate.  I have sold several domain names for profit. You can use your paypal account.

20.   Social Networking Sites
 Keep in mind the word networking is a verb, and that means action. Go to and set up a profile that reflects the product/website/affiliate product you want to sell.

Keep the profile fun and interesting. You can also use the blog at Myspace to update your profile. You can add photos, videos from YouTube, and games. Then search for friends using your key words to find people interested in your product. Say you have a golf product, search for golfers.

If you have a recipe book, search for people who like to cook. You can also join the forums at Myspace and look for friends that way. The advantage of having friends is that you can send bulletins to your friends that will automatically be posted at their Myspace profile and seen by all their friends. If you have 100 friends and they each have 100 friends, one of your bulletins can potentially be seen by 10,000 people. is social networking site that leans a little more toward business. Again set up your profile with your links, then look for groups to join. The groups should be relevant to your website or products. Most groups have active discussions going on. Answer questions, ask questions and contribute to the discussion. You can make money by selling bulletins to advertisers, offering affiliate products or your own products to your friends.

21.   Set Up an Ecourse With PLR or your own material.
 Set up a squeeze page (a web page that offers a bonus of some sort in exchange for the visitors name and email address) to capture names and email addresses in exchange for a free ecourse. The ecourse is a PLR ebook broken down into manageable segments from 250 to 500 words long. These segments are emailed every few days or so. Each segment ends with a pitch for an affiliate product that complements the ecourse. Ecourses can be on any topic from healthy dog food to weight loss, so don't think you have to limit yourself to Internet Marketing.

22.   Distribute a Newsletter
Use a package of PLR materials that relates to your own list. Each week use one of the articles as the body of the newsletter. Include an additional article that relates to an affiliate product you think your list members would be interested in.
You make money by selling the affiliate products. When you have a substantial number of subscribers, sell advertising.

23.   Sell Stuff on Ebay
Ebay is an auction site. Think of it as a huge online garage sale. You can find just about anything on Ebay for just about any price. Clean out your attic and basement, sell the kid's baby toys, outgrown clothes, and baby furniture. If you've inherited a set of fine china you'll never use, sell it.

And of course there's always selling new merchandise that is dropped shipped, which simply means it's shipped directly from the wholesale source to your customer.

24.   Become a Virtual Assistant
Assist Internet marketers and web masters with day to day tasks such as responding to email, providing customer assistance, and research.

25.   Bum Marketing
Bum marketing is simply using articles you've written to drive traffic to a blog/website/squidoo page you've set up that sells an affiliate product, or your own product. The article is submitted to article directories and includes a bio box that has a little bit about you and the link to your blog/website/squidoo page. The tricks to BUM Marketing are very simple.

1. Use key words in the title of your article and in the article itself so people searching for those key words will find your article on the major search engines.

2. Make the article informative and interesting, but leave the readers wanting more.

3. Include a teaser in your bio box that entices the reader to click on the link to your website/blog.

4. Write enough articles using those keywords. How much is enough?

A rule of thumb is one article per day for the first month.
Article Directories

26.   Set up a Membership Site
Membership sites are quite popular as a way to earn recurring revenues. Members sign up for a monthly fee. As long as they remain a member you get paid the membership fee. The fees can range from $5.00 a month to hundreds of dollars a month. The trick is keeping the content fresh so your members have a reason to stick around.
