Online Supplementary Income

I have seen and still am seeing many people on and off the internet asking how to make money online without any investment.

Disclaimer: None of these methods work from office. They are all blocked :) you need to have a PC with an internet connection at your home to do this.

There are a lot of ways but to be frank you can not earn 1000 dollars over night. It however depends on your qualification as well.

  • Can you code embedding flash players script or mp3 player scripts? OR
  • Are you good in MySQL related tasks? OR
  • Can you design websites or logo or banners? OR
  • Do you belong to the category, “I know nothing but for click my mouse away and simply surfing the net”? OR
  • Do you feel, “I already am a full time developer and I don’t want do the same stupid code again as a part time job. All I want is just spending my time on Internet in a monetary way”?
If you belong to the first three categories, check out getafreelancer.com and rentacoder.com you are sure to make some bucks! I myself have earned a decent amount 6 to 7 months before from those two sources for designing. Digital point is an amazing forum containing a lot such part time jobs. Search Google for Digital Point Forum, you will find them!

If you belong to the 4th or 5th category then there are a lot of opportunities. They won’t fetch you big money but it will be an enough pocket money for you…

Let’s see a bit more about these now…

PTC – Paid To Click/ PTR – Paid To Read E-mails/Paid To Surf & Search/Paid to Sign-up

This is the slowest mode of earning money. People might tend to get bored of this at times. You will make around 2 USD per week which is really low. But hey, what more can you expect just for clicking? hahaha However if you join more such sites then you can earn (no. of sites * 2) USD.

PTP – Paid to Post

This is a decent source. You get paid for participating in discussion forums. $0.10 to $0.20 per post so more the posts you can make per day you get paid more. I used to earn 100-150 USD (5000 INR - 7500 INR) per month. Not trying to exaggerate but I really did. It is not magic but you need to post of various forums, minimum 20 posts everyday. I got a lot more other personal things to do so I left my online earning these days.

PTS – Paid to Take Surveys

I would not advice this for Asians as they are not many surveys given for Asians but for those in the US/UK/Canada, you can earn big time (around $5 to $50 per survey depending on the number of question asked in that Survey), I mean it! There are a few for Asians too but I would not recommend unless you have a lot of free time and want to try everything out by your own.

Paid to upload Videos/Photos

You will be paid $5 per 1000 views of the photo/video you uploaded. Join them only if you feel this fascinating! I personally would not :)

Paid to upload files

Similar to the one above but here you will be paid based on how many others have downloaded your file. Uploading.com, easyshare.com are a few.

As of now I am in the process of trying out other local Data Entry jobs in Chennai which needs no investment and pays us genuinely. I will share those details if I succeed finding any. 90 percent of them are all scams!

Apart from these, if you got a blog or website, go for Adsense or other affiliate programs. This is not easy either. You need to have unique content that would fetch you more readers. No readers means no clicks on your adsense and no money :(

If you still have any query, need help or suggestion, you can drop me a comment and I will get back to you.

When you find sometime, try to read How to earn Rs. 200 per week
