Just like you can turn a profit on sharing your skills online, you can also do so using your knowledge. There are a variety of sites out there that will pay you to do research, answer questions, or be an on-call expert in a number of different industries. Have a nursing degree? You can pick up some extra cash when you’re off duty by answering medically-related questions. Off-duty handyman or plumber? You can do the same thing with home improvement questions. If you just enjoy researching, you can pull in some cash by doing research through a website like Wonder.
There’s an excellent chance that you have one or several musical instruments sitting in storage that haven’t been used in years. Perhaps it’s a leftover from when you were in school, or even from your days playing in a band. Whatever the reason that you have it, it’s probably worth money if you can sell it. Brand-new instruments are ridiculously expensive, so people often look to buy used equipment instead, particularly if they are novices.
Turn your photographs into cash via sites like Fine Art America, which lets you upload your images to sell as prints, t-shirts, phone cases and more. Other marketplaces for photographers include SmugMug, 500px and PhotoShelter. Some sites require a subscription but may provide features ranging from cloud storage to password-protected galleries and a customized website.
Online savings accounts usually come with crazy good interest rates to help you grow your money faster (regular in-person banks can’t offer rates as high). We’re fans of CIT Bank and Discover Bank (among others) because their interest rates are often over 25 times the national average. That means the money in your savings account will grow 25 times faster than the pace it’s most likely growing at now. Really, though, you can’t go wrong with pretty much any online savings account that offers over 1.50% APY 🙂
What an epic blog post! This is going to end up as one of the best of 2011, in my opinion. Moreover, thank you so much for featuring my blog in your top “make money online” blogs. It’s a true honor and I’m humbled to be listed with so many other great blogs within what I consider one of the best posts of 2011. I’ll be featuring your post and linking back on my blog tonight…
One major part of any design process is checking to make sure that what you’ve created actually works as it is intended – so there are a ton of websites and apps out there that need to be checked, and you could make some extra money by being the one to test them! Testers are usually paid by the test, and it’s often only around $10 per test – however, $10 for a few minutes of your time isn’t bad! You’ll generally be given a website or app to look at along with a series of instructions on what you should try to do – then you’ll either have your voice and screen actions recorded or you’ll write a short report afterward on how well the website or app worked. That’s it.
My 10-year-old son brought home a book from our park’s free library box. It was a biology textbook – teachers edition. He said it looked interesting and hey, it was free (having no idea you could sell it). I scanned it in my Amazon seller app and realized it was worth around $150. He was so excited. We listed it for sale for $130 and it sold! Going to tell him, he just made $130!
If you want to help shape products in their early stages, joining an online focus group or answering survey questions is a great way to make extra money online. They don’t pay as much as some of the other options we’ve highlighted, but you can join groups on sites like Survey Junkie, Swagbucks, and IPSOS that pay out through Amazon gift cards, check, or PayPal. You’ll be asked to provide a bit of information about your demographics (age, location, etc…), but after that you can get going making money through surveys.

Before we dive into the top 7 ways to make money online, I need to go over a few things first. Do NOT expect easy money from the internet. The internet seems to be flooded these days with “gurus” and teachers trying to teach you how to make a ton of money, by next week, using a certain system or software program. Well, get rich quick is always a scam. You cannot make money easily online. It’s a business, just like any other. These guys like to sell products that can tell you that you can make money quickly, so that they can make money selling those products. So, get rich quick is ALWAYS going to be a scam.
There’s a high probability of passive income if you get to the top of the pyramid on these MLM networks. Multi-Level Marketing does take some time, so this is more of a marathon rather than a sprint. It takes some time to build a good sales team. So as long as you’re willing to start at the bottom and work your way up over time, Multi-Level Marketing can be a great way to earn an income online.
