40 Ways to Make Money on the Internet


how can i use the internet to make money

I did a little bookmark scrub this morning and thought I would share the remaining content of my “Online Money” folder. To warn you, there are certain things that I don’t like and never bookmark so:
What’s NOT included: Taking Paid Surveys, Getting Paid to Surf the Internet, MLM, Contest Sites, “Buy my DVD, CD, Audiobook”, etc.

What IS included: Things you can use to legitimately make money online – Everything from Getting Paid to review software to good ole’ Adsense.

  • Infolinks – Infolinks is probably the highest paying option for your in-text advertising. On DLM, you will see underlined links scattered throughout articles. Those are a function of Infolinks and without disclosing too much, it’s been a great source of income. Best is that they accept all sizes of websites and blogs. Just sign up and begin.
  • Build a Niche Store – This is a simple store development platform which enables you to create content based sites that generate income through the eBay affiliate programs. Pretty darn simple and increasingly popular.
  • Adbrite – Sell space on your site for text ads. This would work like the DLM Marketplace you see on the right of my pages although I chose to manage it myself.
  • Amazon Affiliate Program – Easily create a store or shopping section on your site instead of sending your visitors to Amazon. Amazon handles the shopping cart and fulfillment.
  • Amazon Seller – Sell your stuff on Amazon
  • Associated Content – If you write a story, how-to, rant, how-to cut grass, etc., you can submit it to them and they will pay you $3-$20 per article if they like it.
  • Yahoo! Merchant Solutions – This is a pretty simple and cheap way to create an online store.
  • Azoogleads – Another ad program. They do have some decent companies lined up as advertisers. You provide space, they’ll provide an ad.
  • BidVertiser – PPC (pay per click) program with a low $10 payout amount.
  • Blog – Start a blog and consistently write excellent content. With good ad placement, you may make some money. I detail my process here: Simply Said, How to Blog.
  • Cafepress– You provide a design, they’ll toss it on a T-Shirt, Hat, etc. No upfront costs. Get a free online shop and promote your products on your website.
  • Chitika – Their eMiniMalls service has shown great results for many Bloggers and site owners. You choose a keyword and they show relevant products on your site using a pretty unique interface.
  • Clickbank – Quickly becoming my favorite affiliate program. They have thousands of things for you to advertise on your site.
  • ClicknWork – Get paid $5-$150 per hour for basically doing freelance work on a per-assignment basis. You have to pass a pretty tough test to get in.
  • Clicksor – These are the guys that generate contextual ads on sites that show up when you hover over a double-underlined word.
  • Commission Junction – If you have a site, you can join Commission Junction. Once enrolled for free, you can choose companies whose ads are pertinent to your site. Companies have the ultimate say on working with you. There are easily over 1,000 companies to choose from here.
  • CreamAid – For blogs only, advertisers provide you with a topic and you write about it on your site. To do this, you have to install a flash widget into your blog post. The more people you bring into the conversation through the widget, the more you get paid. It’s difficult to explain.
  • eefoof – Think of it as YouTube + Flickr + Music. You add original content and they pay you based on the visitors you attract.
  • Ether – If you are an expert on something, Ether provides a way for people to pay you to talk about it in a one-on-one setting. If you want to charge $250/hr, that’s fine. You have to do all the advertising so you should have a blog or site already established.
  • eBay– Come on, you know what this is. Gather your junk and sell it!
  • eBay Stores – If you have a real store and want to sell your stuff online, this is a decent option to get you started.
  • ELance – Name gives it away. Programmers, Codes, Web Designers, Writers, Editors, can look for freelance opportunities.
  • Feedvertising – This is an arm of Text Link Ads and is currently only good for WordPress users. This does me no good currently, but as you can guess, they place ads in your feed(s).
  • Feedburner / Google – Not only are they the best place to house your feeds, they will also add ads to your feed and website. You get paid per impression and if you implement Google Adsense to your feed, you are paid per click.
  • Google Adsense – Come on, you don’t need an explanation; these ads are all over the place. Google displays relevant ads based on your site’s content
  • Google Adwords – Create simple text ads and choose keywords that determine when they are displayed. This is where the Adsense Content comes from. You do not need a site for this.
  • – Get paid to fill jobs. Commissions range from $50-$5,000. It all depends on how tough the job is to fill and how desperate the hiring company is. This is another one that’s tough to explain.
  • – Add their job board to your site. They then post jobs based on the geographic location of visitors and the position types you pre-select. I tried it and I they continually report that I sent 0 visitors and I know that’s not right. Nevertheless, I may have an isolated problem so they make the list.
  • InnerSell – If you have a customer that wants to buy something you cannot sell, you can sell the lead here.
  • Jigsaw – It’s a pretty flaky model but if you have a Rolodex full of good contacts, you can sell them here. I can’t make sense of it but it looks like you get $0.10 per profile.
  • – If you have a site, you can join Linkshare. Once enrolled for free, you can choose companies whose ads are pertinent to your site. Companies have the ultimate say on working with you. Like Commission Junction, there are a ton of companies waiting to evaluate your site.
  • Microsoft Adcenter – Bid on keywords and Microsoft places your created ads then they are searched for. This is similar to Google Adwords. You do not need a site for this.
  • – Sell your stuff on
  • Pay Per Post – I don’t agree with this model entirely but they have advertisers that will pay you to write about their products on your blog.
  • Pheedo – If you have an RSS feed, run it through Pheedo. Like Feedburner, they can include ads into your feed and if you really become large, advertisers will pay a premium for you to show their ads.
  • – I’ve used them for a couple years for some banner advertising. They are similar to Commission Junction and Linkshare however they seem to have lower tiered companies with advertising offers.
  • Shoemoney – This is a blog that can teach you a ton on making money online. I’ve spent hours reading his old stuff.
  • Software Judge – They will pay you up to $50 to review software.
  • Text Link Ads – I have never made a dime here but I know people that have. You can earn by sending advertisers to them or by selling spots on your site. You must have a real site or blog to do this – nothing on a shared domain (i.e. /blogspot).
  • Vibrant Media – Don’t bother unless your site has 500,000 page views of text based content a month. If you have that readership, these are the guys that display bubble box ads to underlined words on your site.
  • West Work At Home Agent – Not entirely online but this is worth a mention because it’s won awards and is very legitimate. If you are an at-home Mom or free-lancer without work, you should check this out.

    • Great question.

      First off.
      Whenever I sit down to write, I always have a topic and a reason for writing about it, whether it’s just another way of making money online I haven’t written about yet, or it’s a new tool I discovered that will be helpful to my readers. It’s often something that has come up in conversation or was something I read about elsewhere etc.

      I just go, I just start blurting out (carefree freestyle typing) whatever comes to my mind. I like to write like I am having a conversation with my ideal audience member. After I get everything out of my head and on to the computer, I go back and read through it, over and over. While re-reading I edit it so that it has a nice flow, the sentences make sense, and it is broken up in the right spots with paragraphs. I find the more it is broken up into paragraphs for each little idea, and by adding bold or underlined type, photos, and videos into the mix, it seems less daunting and more interesting to the reader. Heck, that’s what I like to see when i come across an article, pics and well broken up with important things in bold and underlined and links to what they are talking about. All that stuff comes along after I get my initial ideas down and in writing.

      Just start don’t worry about that first sentence or the title. Just start going and it’ll begin to form and will all come together once you’ve gotten the bulk of it out of your head and on to the screen in front of you.

      Hope This Helps
