|7 Ways To Make Money Online Without Being Scammed… by saminesam: 12:56pm On Jul 24, 2016|
It’s estimated that for every one legitimate online opportunity there are roughly sixty scams. The reason is that quite a few people seem to believe that there’s a magic package out there which allows one to make a lot of money on the internet with very little effort, and there’s always a less than reputable website willing to sell it to them.
To be perfectly honest there are many different ways to make money online, and working from home can be extremely rewarding. But there’s a big difference between a legitimate online job or opportunity and the unsolicited offers that often find their way into your inbox.
This is why we’ve put together a list of real ways to make money from home. These are all legitimate companies and methods which allow you to start getting paid for a wide range of activities with little or no investment on your part.
Feel free to explore the ideas on this page, join the discussions & leave your response below, or suggest an idea we haven’t thought of yet…
#1 Get an Online Job…
If you want to earn income at home then you may think the most obvious solution is to get a work-at-home job. Well you’re right! Unfortunately many internet scams specifically target people searching to work at home. To avoid falling for any kind of schemes the best thing you can do is go directly to the source. Find forums or job boards that focus on the kind of work you want to do. For instance there are many legit jobs in the customer service industry.
You can get a job as a customer service representative and earn money by fielding customer’s questions and providing them with support. This type of work will require some brief training and the ability to pass a background check.
If you’re the creative type, you can find work at home opportunities in almost any industry. If you have technical skills such as programming or graphic design, then the door is really wide open. In addition to full time work at home jobs there are a plethora of freelance jobs.
Check out our lists of legitimate work at home jobs below:
Customer Service Jobs
Medical Transcription Jobs
Mystery Shopper Jobs
Virtual Assistant Jobs
Data Entry Jobs
Tutoring & Teaching Jobs
#2 Make Money Taking Surveys…
Surveys often get a bad reputation online because many people are confusing legitimate survey companies with other fraudulent online offers. The most important thing you need to look for in an online survey site is that it’s associated with a real market-research company.
There are many false “survey” websites out there that attempt to charge money for survey opportunities, but participation in real market research should always cost you nothing.
In addition, many fraudulent websites claim extraordinary earnings from taking surveys, which is not how real survey companies operate. You should have reasonable expectations and understand that you’re not going to make a full-time income taking surveys.
Big-name brands pay research companies to get their members to take various surveys. Often times they’re looking for very specific demographics which means you may not qualify. The best way around this is to be honest in your profile and sign up with several websites to increase your chances of qualifying.
Check out list of free online survey companies at the following http://www.reviewopedia.com/free-paid-online-surveys.htm
#3 Get Paid to Browse the Net…
With more and more retail and advertising dollars being spent online studying people’s browsing habits has become huge business. Insights into online behavior are worth thousands, if not millions, of dollars to large companies who do business online.
This is why there’s been a significant rise in research firms that study how and why people do certain things online. In order to get this data they’ve developed websites that reward people with gifts and prizes for contributing to their statistics.
One of the most reputable companies offering this opportunity is www.SwagBucks.com. They’ll pay you for doing things online such as browsing, shopping, or even playing games. Any info they collect is anonymous and unidentifiable so your privacy is protected.
Working with Swagbucks will certainly not replace your dayjob, but why not get a little something extra for doing many of the things that you’re already doing anyways?
#4 Make Money With Your Own Website…
If you’re looking to work hard, be your own boss, and create a full-time income for yourself then making money with your own website is the route you’re looking to take. With a website you open yourself up to a variety of income sources, primarily making money through advertising networks such as AdSense or affiliate marketing.
You no longer need to be a computer or programming expert to make money with a website. Services such as blogger and wordpress allow you to quickly create your own website and even host it for free. Keep in mind that you will not make money on your first day, or likely your first month.
Making money with a website is a lot like starting your own business. It can be a lot of work and you often don’t reap the benefits till much later down the line. However, if you’re willing to work hard, have an idea or vision, and have a passion for self-employment then there’s nothing stopping you from succeeding.
Many people get intimidated just by the thought of creating their own website and monetizing it, which is why we put together a step-by-step, easy to follow guide that’ll show you how to earn your first dollar online fast Without A List, Website, Relying On Google, Doing SEO, Creating YouTube Videos, Or Doing Any Paid Advertising…. checkout http://www.konga.org.ng/fastcashblueprint/fastcash/
#5 Get Paid to Write…
Writing is one of the easiest ways to make money online; with the massive growth of the internet there’s never been more demand on the internet for writers. Websites are always in need of new content and they’re happy to pay for it. The best way to find at-home writing work is to become a member at some of the many freelance websites and forums specializing in this type of work.
Not only can you find short term work, but if you do well and impress your employer a small gig can often turn into long term or even permanent employment.
Another option is to submit your content to websites that offer revenue-sharing opportunities. They will provide you with the platform to host your writing on, and in return for your work, they’ll split any ad revenue that your articles generate.
With the revenue sharing option you get more leeway in the kind of content you can write and will earn a percentage (approx. 40-50%) of the ad revenue that your articles generate.
As a traditional freelance writer, you’ll bid on jobs and get paid a predetermined amount for a specific amount of work. check below for list of Writing Job Websites.
Online Writing, Editing, and Proofreading Jobs
You can take two different approaches to starting an online writing career. You can submit your content to ad-revenue share writing sites or pursue a more traditional freelance writing career where you get paid per assignment.
If you’re pursuing the revenue sharing route, then it may help to learn a bit of SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The reason for this is that you want your articles to get as much publicity as possible.
The more views that your article gets the more you’re likely to earn. You don’t have to become an SEO expert, especially since you’re not working on your own website, but a little bit of knowledge can go a long way.
Below you will find a list of revenue share writing sites, freelance writing websites, and online companies that will pay you for proofreading & editing work.
Revenue Share Writing Jobs:
#6 Micro Jobs…
Many companies are outsourcing simple tasks that, for one reason or another, can’t be done by a computer. These “micro jobs” can range from specialized tasks to basic actions that a computer simply can’t handle, such as appropriately labeling photographs for example.
There are many routes that you can take with this type of work. If you have a skill set for specific tasks such as web-design then you don’t have to focus on just the basic jobs. There have been many huge design projects that have been done through the use of the micro job model.
Due to their success, there are quite a few websites that offer this type of work. Everything from answering a question to submitting a design, or to helping name a new product or website.
Learn more about microjobs below:
MicroJobs are simple tasks assigned to online job seekers and paid for by employers who wish to get a large number of tasks done quickly. These jobs can generally be completed in only a few minutes.
Microjobs can include a very diverse array of tasks such as commenting on an article, answering a question, writing a review, or even just liking something on facebook.
Ensure that you succeed at these jobs by carefully following directions. Employers often have very specific tasks in mind and will outline exactly what needs to be done. All you have to do is read and do exactly what they ask for.
Below is a list of websites where you can make money doing microjobs…
Amazon’s Mechanical Turk
#7 Get Paid to Take Stock Photos…
You can make money selling simple everyday photos. You don’t have to be an artist or an expert photographer to make this work. People need stock photos for their blogs, websites, presentations, and much more. Often times it’s the most basic things that they’re looking for. When someone purchases your photo you get paid a commission, it’s as simple as that.
Here’s a list of sites where you can get started: Fotolia.com, ShutterStock, and iStockphoto.

Thanks all for your contributions. Please, most of the websites demand citizens from America and UK. Some don't consider Nigerians. Can you help highlight the ones that Nigerians are eligible.

Good, you have posted most important post at this time. Doing jobs online is a little dream only. I have tried several times. But, useless. I made money only from Google Adsense. I think, it is better doing office based job than internet jobs. Today, I promote Seylan Bank Vacancies at CellMax and promote sampath bank vacancies here, as my living. I can't recommend internet based jobs or vacancies.
