Ways to make money on the Internet.

Earn small, but real money to start with - NOT the ' $1000+ a day' scams.
This page is simple to load quickly. No fancy graphics, just the honest facts.

First ... you need some 'tools'.

A dedicated credit card for the Internet. more...
Open FREE Internet banking accounts to receive payment. more...
Disposable email addresses. more...


Second ... programs where you earn money but are free to join.

Trickle income, like these sites below, build up a bank balance, give you confidence and earn you some funds to invest in Forex or other programs that require you to deposit money first.

Pay to Click (PTC) sites pay you a cent or less to click on advertisements every 24 hours. It may not sound much but it adds up while only a little time is required to earn from each site every day. Remember, you can click and earn from the same ad once every day. More money can be earned fron completing jobs or tasks such as viewing videos or writing a short report of your experience on a website.
The following Bux sites are reliable.
Neobux (proof of payment) has $2 to $10 minimum payouts.
Here is a tutorial on how to use Neobux which is useful for those who wish to translate the instructions from English.
DonkeyMails still popular after years online - the classic 'paid mail' and PTC program. (proof of payment)
ClixSense is another established program that pays 1c a click and also good for buying your own ads. It is best for Premium upgrade members (which costs from $17) as you will get many more links to click on and earn. My typical monthly earning proof here.

Bookmark your log-in page, remember your password and check your account several times daily for ads to click on.
You can upgrade your account by purchasing referrals.
Wait for the ad to load and then watch the 10 to 30 second timer count down. If you open two ads at the same time you will be paid for none of them. Be fair to the advertisers.
You can earn about 4c to 10c daily from one Bux/Mail site as a free member but a lot more if you upgrade. If you join 10 similar sites you can earn $1 a day in 30 minutes even without buying referrals!

Remember to bookmark this page and all the sites you join to make it easier to return daily.

Here are some tips on how to do offers and set up your PC to earn with GPT programs.

Surveys for payment or prizes. Get paid by manufacturers for your opinions on their products. All of these are free to join and really do pay. There are many survey scams on the Net and even some where they require payment from you. You should never have to pay to take part.
CashCrate has been paying for over 4 years with over 2 million members and pays worldwide although most surveys are for US, Canada and Europe. Sign up from the UK, for instance, and you get 52 options to complete offers, take surveys or shop online with payments ranging from 50 cents to $15. You get points for playing Flash games as well - good fun! They have a 'payment wall' where members post photos of their payments. They have a good tutorial here on how to earn money with CashCrate.

For sites where you earn by clicking on a link to make a search. Here is a tutorial on how to make a valid search . It will take longer than the 40 seconds shown to finish loading three pages but if the advertiser doesn't get paid, you wont get the links in the future..

High Payouts from 'free to join' programs.
Normally I avoid very high payout programs where it sometimes takes a year to reach the minimum by which time the site may have vanished!

You WILL get paid with these programs; about $35 to $50 a month for just these programs and there are dozens more to choose from. Join up, add to your favourites or put an icon on your desktop by dragging on a links page for each program and visit the sites at intervals through the day and earn a bit each time. But do it EVERY day! It soon adds up.


1. Right click on the log-in page for each program and save a shortcut link to your desktop, or, Add to your Favourites in a new folder, named Daily, for instance. Much easier to remember your daily earning sites by double clicking on the icons or links.

2. Write the address and log-in details for each site in the back of your diary. It is easy to forget your user name and password and you can continue to earn money on another pc when away from home.

3. Get into the habit of regular visits. Most sites will cancel your account if you don't make use of it and any money earned will be lost.

4. Contact me if you need help or advice.


Third ... programs where you need to invest some money.

The risk is greater but the rewards can be huge!

Playing the Foreign Exchange markets. A very volatile area where returns can be huge. More details on another page here ... Only start with money you can afford to loose.

High yield investment programs (HYIP) return high yields on your investment but are also high risk and of limited duration. Basically ' Pyramid' or 'Ponzi' schemes that pay out the early punters with income from later investors. Get in early with a sum you can afford to loose and earn 20% in a week or 45% profit in 14 days. Most use 'e-currency' so you will need to open free accounts here... To help in deciding which programs to invest in and when to pull out I have kept the statistics of several sites that have closed. This is a very volatile market but can be very profitable and exciting. A more detailed description is here.



Fourth ... make a web site of your own and get advertisers on it.
The final group of earning programs can be placed on your own web site.
First you need a website with content interesting enough to attract visitors.
Think of a subject that you know a lot about - you, your family, your job, your hobby - whatever it is, focus on it and provide detailed information; facts, figures. Try to make your web site the definitive source of information on your chosen subject. A good tutorial on making a web site from start to finish is at

With a web site designed you need a domain name and a hosting service. It is like an address to the house where your web site lives. I use Easily to buy my domain names with HawkHost to host them. They give excellent service and support.

Promote your website using the points earned from working the PTS, PTR and PTC you joined above in section three and to get referrals to sign up under you. See a study on Promotion

There are many sites that will generate traffic to your web site. Sites that generate traffic automatically like QuietHits will produce a large number of hits but the visitor will only look at your page briefly. Visits from real people have more value and some of the best suppliers are EasyHits4U and TrafficSwarm. You may visit member's sites and so earn a visit to your site from a member. You can also purchase visits from a particular class of surfer to match your site content. DonkeyMails also has a manual surf section as well as earning from Pay to Read emails and Pay to Click sections so you can visit all the sections in turn and earn and get traffic at the same time.

Once you have a web site with solid content you have a 'product' to sell. Many of the top programs will not accept you as an affiliate unless you have a web site of substance.

The star payer is Google AdSense. They pay for clicks and pay very well and cleverly match their ads to the content of your page. Minimum payout is $100 by cheque.

A good affiliate scheme is . where you can join up for free to any of dozens of schemes under one 'roof' . All affiliate schemes have a minimum payout limit of around $50 so grouping schemes together as with . [aimed at European web sites] and Commission Junction [aimed at North America but covering the world] means that you can get a cheque earlier.

Lots of companies would love you to join them as an affiliate and will pay you a commission when your visitors buy some of their products. It makes sense to join up with companies compatible with your site. Amazon sell a lot more than just books now and pay 5% to 7.5% commission by targeting specific goods with a link from your site.

Bravenet has a lot of free goodies to add to your web site to attract more visitors and can help in setting up and hosting a web site with a free domain name. They also offer 50mb of free space on their servers to store your password protected back-up files and sensitive data. A well respected site of long standing..

Remember, these are all free to join; you have no outgoings other than your normal internet connection which you have anyway. To be perfectly frank, the only downside to these deals is that it takes up your time to organise the links, and your browser and/or web site will run a bit slower while advertising banners load.

The Internet is fast changing - please let us know if a good deal comes along or if you find a crooked deal; contact and we will check it out and give it an unbiased opinion.
