If you’ve been on the internet for more than a few hours, you’ve likely seen at least one advertisement teaching you how to make thousands of dollars a minute, working from your underwear, in the comfort of your own home.

These ads are so ridiculously popular that if you’re like most people, you start doubting whether it really IS possible to make money online.

The truth is, it IS possible. It might be hard to make thousands of dollars a minute from the get-go (or at all J), but there are certainly ways you can make money working from home with ease.

On this page, I am going to share 100 different ways in which you can create more income. I have tried to cover all types of methods for all different personality and skill types, and I am confident that you’ll be able to find at least a few that sound good to you.

While some of them require more work than others, please know that you can mix and match. For example, maybe you can do a few hours of forum moderation at $10 an hour for $30, and then make up the extra $70 doing something else. The key is to have fun and do whatever you enjoy.

I have given an overview of each idea, and then fleshed them all out a little bit so you could get started on whatever you like, immediately.

It is my sincere hope that you get a lot out of this page, and that you take action and start making money!

Without any further ado, let’s get started.


  1. Forum Posting:

One of the easiest ways to make money online, if you have a flair for talking, is by forum posting.

A lot of webmasters have started hiring people to post on their forums so that their forums look busy and popular. They feel that by making their forums look more popular, they will be able to attract more long-term visitors.

When you’re posting in forums, all you would have to do is initiate new threads, or respond to existing ones, and keep conversations going. You may do this by posting interesting thoughts, thought-provoking conversation, or teaching people things.

A cool perk of this job is that you get to learn new things. Also, if you post in forums that you’re already interested in, you basically get paid to have fun.

In order for you to become a forum poster, here are some steps you can take:

  • Search for and browse through freelancing sites.
  • Apply for forum posting jobs on those sites
  • Respond back to the buyer on time if you are called for an interview
  • Agree on the pay per post and the deadline
  • Get the job done within the accepted deadline

How much can I make out of forum posting?

  • For each forum post you make, the general prices range anywhere from $0.10 to $0.50 per post. If you have time to devote to this during the day and are able to make between 200 to 1000 posts (depending on how much your job is worth), then you can earn $100 a day. You can also, of course, do whatever you would like per day and then mix and match with another suggestion from our lists.

  1. Forum Moderator:

As long as forums exist, forum moderators need to exist.

This is because webmasters need people to block negative comments, make sure things are running smoothly and forum users are getting their questions and comments responded to.

To be a forum moderator, you would need to monitor comments posted by users, delete spam, answer questions from users, and reply to user messages. You would also encourage threads, add new content to the site, and block comments posted by people who ignore forum rules.

If you have an interest in certain forums, this could be very interesting for you to do. Just like with forum posting, you also have the potential to learn a lot.

In order for you to become a forum moderator, here are some steps you can take:

  • Post a profile on freelancing sites such as. Describe your interests and your levels of expertise.
  • Look for forum moderator jobs on the same freelancing sites, and apply for them
  • Google forum moderation job openings.
  • If there are forums you’re interested in, check with the owner. A lot of people don’t post on freelancing sites but rather prefer to hire people who post a lot.

How much can I make out of moderating forums?

  • Depending on your role and experience, you can make anywhere from $3 to $20 an hour.

 

  1. Article writing:

If you are a good writer, you can earn money by writing articles for people with websites.

Many website owners know that they need to keep their websites current and up to date, but don’t have the time to constantly create new content for them. Because of that, they hire people who can write on their behalf.

In order for you to become a content writer, here are some steps you can take:

  • Post a profile on freelancing sites such as. Describe your interests and your levels of expertise.
  • Email them with your name and include a writing sample. We are constantly looking for more writers and will give trial work to all eligible writers.
  • Look for writing jobs on the same freelancing sites and apply for them.
  • Google writer job openings.
  • Ask the owners of websites that you already like if they are looking for writers.

How much can I make out of writing?

  • Content writing jobs pay anywhere from $1 to $100+ based on the length of the article and your expertise. If you’re already an expert on the topic you’re writing about, you can often charge a premium.
  • Even if you are new to writing, you can make upwards of $.50 for each 100 words on an article.

 

  1. Become A Blogger:

If there’s something you’re passionate about, you can create a blog where you can talk about it.

This is a fun way to share your passions while learning and teaching about what you’re already excited about.

In order to do this well, you would need to be a good writer with the ability to make people interested. You would also need to be able to post fairly regularly to a blog.

Blogs can be monetized in several ways. Just some ways are to have companies pay you to post their advertisements (this is better for blogs with a lot of traffic), or put Google AdSense on your blog. With this option, Google pays you every time someone clicks on an advertisement.

In order for you to become a Blogger, here are some steps you can take:

  • Choose a company to blog with. Two of the most popular ones are Blogger or WordPress.
  • Decide if you want a free account or if you would like to host the blog on your own domain.
  • Most people opt to buy a domain so that their blog appears more professional. If you choose to do this, you’ll need to sign up with a hosting company (I recommend webhostingworld – their plans are as low as $1.00a month), and then have your domain routed to the hosting company.
  • This may sound difficult but it’s actually very easy, and webhostingworld customer support can help you with any questions.
  • After your blog is set up, decorate it however you would like (WordPress calls the blog skins “themes”, and Blogger calls them “templates”)
  • Post news, lessons, stories, or anything relevant to your blog.
  • Add content as frequently as possible so that you build up a regular readership base.
  • Start advertising your site on social networks, amongst friends, or via other traffic methods.

How much can I make out of blogging?

  • It can take some time to establish a blog, but the profit potentials can be quite large. Some people report making in the millions of dollars from a blog. Your earnings will vary based on traffic you get to the blog, how interesting your content is, how often you post, and the types of advertisements you put on your blog.

 

  1. Guest Writer:

Webmasters sometimes need specific experts to create content for their websites. They might not know enough about a specific topic, or want to have someone else’s insight.

If you’re an expert in any particular niche, you can make some excellent money by writing in and offering your wisdom.

In order for you to become a guest writer, here are some steps you can take:

  • Make sure to establish yourself as an expert in your niche by making a presence in the websites and forums in your area of interest. Sometimes, people will just ask if you’re interested in creating content.
  • After you’ve established a presence, you can also write to website and forum owners and let them know what your expertise is and that you’d be interested in creating content for them should they be interested.
  • When you get a writing job, make sure your content is written and submitted as early as possible. If you establish a good reputation, you can get references for other sites and hopefully end up writing for more.

How much can I make out of being a guest writer?

  • Depending on the length of the piece you create and the obscurity of the topic, you can make anywhere from $25 to $200 each time you write.

  1. Podcasting:

Podcasting is similar to blogging, only you would do it via voice instead of typing. You would get the same benefits and approach it the same way (post regular content, etc.)… but it’s just a way to suit people who would rather learn via listening versus reading.

To get started with podcasting, you need a headphone, microphone, and software in which to record your audio.

You can earn money with podcasting the same way you would with blogging – via advertisements, Google AdSense, and by recommending other programs that offer commissions.

In order for you to become a podcaster, here are some steps you can take:Create a website with which to put podcasts on

  • Record your content – you can use a free recording program such as Audacity if you don’t already have something

  • Get it converted in to MP3 format
  • Upload the mp3 on your site
  • Add content as frequently as possible so that you build up a regular listener base.
  • Start advertising your site on social networks, amongst friends, or via other traffic methods (you can outsource a lot of this).

 

  1. Online Counselor:

Many people like to go online for counseling instead of meeting people in person. They feel that they can be more anonymous this way, and they also have the convenience of not needing to drive anywhere.

If you have the ability to counsel people effectively, this could be a fun job for you. You do not need to have a special degree, although it would obviously give you a cutting edge.

In order for you to become an online counselor, here are some steps you can take:

  • Create a website that discusses your qualifications and how you are able to help people. If you don’t have a degree or qualifications to prescribe anything to people, let them know. Some people just want to pay you so that you can listen to them and they can vent their frustrations. Just make sure not to overstep what you can legally do.
  • Start advertising your site on social networks, amongst friends, or via other traffic methods (you can outsource a lot of this).
  • Start building up your customer base. Do a great job, implement word-of-mouth referral programs, and start collecting testimonials from the people you help.

  • Depending on your skill level, you can make from $100-$200 an hour and upwards.

 

  1. Translation:

If you know any other second language, then it will help you make money by opting for translation jobs. This is another easy way to make use of your spare time and convert it into money. Especially if you know any of the languages for which translators are in huge demand.

  • You can get hired for translation jobs through any of the freelancing sites
  • There are many sites which provide translation services exclusively. You can submit your interest and get hired through any of those sites as well
  • Identify the sites which post all the jobs related to translation. Get yourself registered in those sites

How much can I get paid for translation jobs?

  • You can get paid anything from $0.01 per word depending on the demand for the language. If the number of translators for the language are scarce, then you can charge a good rate per word

 

Are you interested in acting as an agent or intermediary? Do you have a knack for business and are good in dealing with people? Then listed below are some ideas that might suit you:

  1. Outsourcing Middle-Man:

Many companies look to hire people in order to help them expand their web presence, to create content for their blog, or help assist them with other tasks.

If you are good at managing people as well as marketing, you can act as an “agent” for some out-sourcers.

Identify people that can do certain work, and then advertise their services to other businesses. Mark up the price so that you can make a profit.

In order for you to become an outsourcing middle-man, here are some steps you can take:

10.Employee Referral

Many companies will offer referral bonuses for people who can recruit excellent new employees for their organization.

If you know a lot of people or have relationships with recruiters, this can be an easy way to earn some extra cash.

You can also find potential prospects for companies by using the internet.

In order for you to become an employee referrer, here are some steps you can take:

  • More companies do have employee referral programs than don’t, which means you have a lot of opportunity to help employees find potential jobs. If you’re unsure if a company offers a referral program, give them a call and ask. You may want to start with your own company, if you currently have a job.
  • Find out if the people in your network are looking for jobs.
  • Go on freelancing sites and check out the profiles of people there. Communicate with people that sound good, and see if they’d be interested in getting more regular work.
  • Refer people to HR of the company you work with or other company that you’re recommending them for. You will get paid if they get hired.
  • You can also try to build up a relationship with external recruiters. If you can do this, then you can get a list of current job openings from them. This can be incredibly lucrative.

How much can I make out of being an employee referrer?

  • Bonuses are anywhere from $50 to the $1000’s of dollars. A lot of this depends on the type of position (the stronger the qualifications needed, the higher the referral bonus) as well as the company you’re working with.

 

  1. Become a website or domain broker

There are a lot of people interested in buying people’s sites. They would like to buy sites so that they can own established websites without having to do the work on their own, or they see profit potential on sites, and so on and so forth.

A lot of people would love to sell their sites, too… but don’t know how.

As a website broker, you can connect buyers and sellers to each other and take a percentage of the sale for making the introductions.

In order for you to become a website broker, here are some steps you can take:

  • Create a website outlining the basics of what you do. As you get buyers and sellers interested, update the website with what buyers are looking for and what sellers have. Don’t put seller’s site details on your website, otherwise buyers can go around you to bypass your commission. Just put general details.
  • Start finding people interested in buying or selling their sites. You can find these people by going on existing sites for buying and selling websites. Even if people are already listed on one website, it doesn’t mean they don’t want additional help.
  • Don’t give out site details to buyers until you get them to sign paperwork saying that they won’t go around you, sign a non-compete, and so forth.
  • When a deal is made, collect a percentage of the profits.

How much can I make out of being a website broker?

  • You can make anywhere from $100 to the millions of dollars, depending on how valuable a site and/or domain is.

 

  1. Start A Forum Posting Website:

As stated before, many webmasters want people to post in their forums. A lot of times they will hire just one person, but at other times, they want a lot of people to go in at once, but don’t feel like hiring a lot of individual people.

If you can pool up 5-10 forum posters yourself, you can provide a “one-stop” service where a webmaster can pay you and you can then go out and pay people individually.

In order for you to start a forum posting website, here are some steps you can take:

  • Create a website advertising your services.
  • You can hire forum posters from any of the freelancing sites or by looking on forums where people are interested in working, such as work-at-home mom websites.

How much can I make out of having a forum posting company?

  • Obviously a lot will depend on what you charge and how much you have to pay your employees, but you can easily make $100/day by doing this after getting enough clients.

 

  1. Referral Exchange Programs:

There are many independent programmers who take a lot of work from clients. There are times when they have too much work to do and can’t take on new projects, and so they have to pass on new jobs.

You can create relationships with these people in order to take their excess work, and then either outsource it or do it yourself.

On the other hand, if you have too much work to handle. you can refer it to other people and charge them fees for your references.

No matter which way you decide to do this, you can profit.

In order for you to do a referral exchange, here are some steps you can take:

  • Get yourself registered in referral exchange forums
  • Find people that are able to take last minute work
  • Find people that are in your industry and regularly accepting freelance work
  • Decide on rates that you will pay people that give you work, and rates you will charge for outsourcing work
  • Make sure to do a great job and to only refer people you trust, so that you can continue doing this without worry of hurting your reputation.

How much money can I make out of referral exchange?

  • The profits will change based on how much you charge for referring work, as well as what you pay people for giving you references. You also have to account for how much you charge to do the actual work. You can easily make $100 a day doing this though, once you build up your partner base.

 

  1. Buying and selling links:

In order to get higher search engine rankings on Google, a lot of people feel that they need to have a lot of backlinks pointing their site.

Backlinks are basically links on other people’s websites pointing to another site. When someone links to another person’s website, it shows Google that their website is worth linking to, and so Google gives it preference for their search engine placements.

The higher the search engine placement, the more publicity a business gets, so a lot of people try hard to get more links to their websites.

Because so many people want links, you can profit on this by acting as an intermediary between people who are willing to sell links and people who are willing to buy them.

In order for you to buy and sell links, here are some steps you can take:

  • You can look for those who want to buy or sell links in forums of sites which talk about links.
  • Make yourself aware of the link buying and selling guidelines
  • Market only valuable links (links that have high Page Rank on Google)
  • You can also create a website advertising your services.
  • Start advertising your site on social networks, amongst friends, or via other traffic methods (you can outsource a lot of this if you don’t have the time or know how).

How much money can I make out of buying and selling links?

  • It depends on the amount you charge for connecting people. You can also buy links on your own and then charge people for them, in which you can create your own pricing. You can make anywhere from $1 to $300 for a link, depending on how valuable the site is.

 

  1. Resell SSL Certificates:

An SSL certificate is something that websites often use in order to prove that their website is secure. This certificate is digitally “signed” by a certificate authority that people already trust after they verify the identify of a secure site.

Many website visitors need to know a site is secure before they submit payment or personal information, so webmasters NEED the SSL certificates.

You can become a partner with any company that offers SSL certificates and resell them on their behalf. These companies either will either sell their SSL certificates to you at a discount, and you can resell them, or they will offer you incentives based on the number of sales you make.

In order for you to become a partner to resell SSL certificates, here are some steps you can take:

  • Browse the net and make a list of companies that offer SSL certificates
  • Sign up for partnership account with the company
  • Identify potential customers and make the sales
  • Provide a list of number of sales you made for the month to the company
  • Enjoy the sales incentive

How much revenue can I make by reselling SSL certificates?

  • If the company with which you have become a partner offer sales incentives, then it depends on the number of certificates you sell and how much that particular company is offering.
  • If the company with which you have become a partner offer certificates at discounted prices for you, then your profit will be the margin that you keep for yourself.

 

Do you frequent eBay? Has selling products or junk occurred in your mind while browsing the site? If so, the ideas below may suit you.

 

  1. Drop Shipping:

Some people hesitate to sell on eBay and other websites because they don’t want to have to go through the pain of storing products, getting them packaged properly, and then shipping the products to customers.

There is an alternative to that though, called dropshipping. If you opt to this, then you don’t need to touch the products at all.

All you would do is sell the products, and then once you make a sale, a wholesaler would ship it on your behalf as soon as you provide them the name and address of each customer.

In order for you to do drop shipping, here are some steps you can take:

  • Get yourself registered in eBay as a seller and/or create your own website
  • Make a list of wholesalers who provide drop shipping. Make sure the dropshippers do not include their contact information on the packages they send out (otherwise customers can go directly to them in the future). You can find out about many dropshipping companies by searching the web.
  • List the products that wholesalers can ship
  • Start advertising your site on social networks, amongst friends, or via other traffic methods.

How much money can I make from drop shipping?

  1. Sell other people’s items on eBay on their behalf:

In eBay you have an option to list items which are not yet in your possession.  However, if you choose to do it, then you must ensure that you don’t violate eBay’s pre-sale item policy.

You can also sell your friend’s items without needing to physically have them in your home.

  1. Provide Uptime monitoring services:

Webmasters generally want to make sure that their website is working as frequently as possible. If their site goes down for any reason, they want to know how long it was down and why. This is crucial for webmasters as a lot of times, their sites are their sources of income.

Because of this, they hire people to monitor the uptime for their websites.

You could use free uptime monitoring software, put in a website’s details, download the reports, and provide them to a webmaster. Even though some webmasters know about this software, they’d still rather hire someone to do it for them so they don’t need to think about it.

In order for you to make money with providing uptime services, here are some steps you can take:

If you get a lot of clients and charge a monthly fee – even $10 to send a detailed report weekly – then get 300 clients, you could make $3,000 with just that.
  • Another route to go is to explain to people who don’t know about the software why uptime monitoring is so important, and then sell them. This should be an easier sale for you.

 

  1. Answer technical questions for a fee:

If there’s something you’re very strong in, then set up a website for yourself and allow customers to ask any questions they want.

You can either charge a monthly fee or a per-question fee, and then reply back to them within a reasonable amount of time.

Because there are so many sites that provide answers for free, you want to make sure that if you do this, it’s in something that you have extensive knowledge in and can really help add value with.

An example of a site that does this is ExpertBee.

In order for you to make money with answering technical questions, here are some steps you can take:

If you don’t want to sell products – either with drop shipping or having your own products – then you could also consider becoming an affiliate.

As an affiliate, you simply refer people to other sites and earn a commission every time a sale is made.

In order for you to have an affiliate website, here are some steps you can take:

  • Start building your customer base. Advertise in websites or forums, social networks, amongst friends, or via other traffic methods.
  • Enjoy the profit margin

How much money can I make out of an online virtual store?

On the directory, you would create hyperlinks to all of the websites within whatever your directory is about.

You can do this for free, and then place advertisements on your site, or you could charge people to be placed on your directory.

In order for you to have an affiliate website, here are some steps you can take:

  • Decide on your business model and then begin setting up the site. If you decide to charge people to stay on your directory, make it worthwhile for them. Maybe you want to give them a few months for free as you build up traffic, or give some other perk that shows them why they should sign up with you.
  • Start building your customer base. Advertise in websites or forums, social networks, amongst friends, or via other traffic methods.

How much money can I make out of an online directory?

You can offer to send physical cards for people on their behalf so that they can still provide the fun gift of giving a physical, tangible card without having to worry about going to the card store and the post office.

Just ask people for what type of card they would like, and then the type of message. You can handwrite the message in for a nice homemade feel.

Flipping domains is similar to what people do in the real estate business.

First, you would buy a cheap domain for $9 or $10.

If you get a good domain, you can flip it at a site like DNForum or Flippa.

Some people will be ready to pay a big price if the domain name is apt and keyword rich for their niche (For example: Business.com fetched $7.5 million in 1999).

Though there aren’t as many domains available as there used to be, but great ones still exist. A lot of times people may not have thought of certain domain names themselves, but when they see them elsewhere they realize how valuable they are.

In order for you to make money by buying and selling domains, here are some steps you can take:

  • You can buy domain names from any of the domain sellers. My personal favorite is Namecheap (they make it very easy to send domains to other people).
  • Make sure that the domains you buy are either keyword rich or otherwise very enticing.

How much money can I make out of flipping?

  • Your profit can range anything between few dollars to hundreds or thousands of dollars, depending on the domain name you bought and the demand for it.

  • Search sites like DNForum or Flippa to find potential websites to buy.
  • You can also look out for sites on Google, or come across sites while you’re browsing, and start contacting owners.

How much money can I make out of flipping?

  • People have made anywhere from $100 to millions of dollars with flipping. This is highly dependent on the profit that your website makes.

In order for you to make money by reading emails, here are some steps you can take:

  • Go through Craigslist “wanted” ads and ask people if they’d be interested in your services. People that post there often desperately want hard-to-find items.
  • Tell your friends and family about your service.
  • Post in antique forums, record forums, and other niches that have hard-to-find items that people passionately collect.

How much money can I make out of filtering products for buyers?

80. Expert in something? Share your knowledge through your Blog/website:

Are you truly an expert in any area? Then share your knowledge through your blog or website.

If you’re good at writing, an option for you would be to create newsletters and circulate them on a somewhat routine basis.

You can circulate them for free at first, but if your newsletters are really interesting and informative, you can build up your subscriber base.

After that’s done, you can either charge to a “paid” model where people have to sign up to read your content, or you can just charge advertisers to promote themselves in your newsletter.

In order for you to make money by writing a newsletter, here are some steps you can take:

  • Start participating in those forums to establish yourself as an expert

  • As you build up subscribers, contact advertisers and let them know how many people they would have access to if they decided to pay you for advertising.

  1. Submitting Articles to Article Directories:

Submitting articles to article directories is one of the best ways for webmasters to build traffic for their sites.

There are hundreds of article directories on the internet, but many website owners only want their articles submitted to the top 25, 50, or 100.

As you can imagine, it can take a long time to submit an article to so many directories – especially if someone writes a lot of articles.

Because of this, webmasters tend to hire people to submit to article directories on their behalf.

In order for you to become an Article Submitter, here are some steps you can take:

  • Look for article submission jobs and start applying for them
  • Once you get hired, start submitting to required directories and maintain a log of where you have submitted to and the username and password you used.

  1. Link Builder:

As we explained earlier, backlinks are basically links on other people’s websites pointing to another site. When someone links to another person’s website, it shows Google that their website is worth linking to, and so Google gives it preference for their search engine placements.

The higher the search engine placement, the more publicity a business gets, so a lot of people try hard to get more links to their websites.

There is a way to ethically “manipulate” other websites to giving you links, and if you know how to do that, then you can provide those services for a fee.

In order for you to become a linkbuilder, here are some steps you can take

  • Get yourself registered in freelancing sites such as com, Guru.com, and Odesk.com
  • Look for link building jobs and start applying for them

  • Once you get hired, start building quality links for your buyer’s site

How much money can I make?

  • You can make anything between $2 – $8 per hour depending on your expertise.

 

  1. Find Expired Domains

When someone buys a domain, they only buy it for a certain time – usually 1, 2, 3, or 5 years.

If they forget to renew their domain, or just choose not to, the domains go into a database and you can choose to buy them.

This is a cool way to capitalize on sites that already have traffic.

Also, older domains generally get higher preference in Google, so you can start out with a site that has a good search engine ranking.

You can either build on these sites or flip them to other people for more money.

In order for you to make money finding expired domains, here are some steps you can take:

  • Find an expired domain name database. One example is right here.
  • Buy domains.
  • Decide whether you want to improve upon the sites, or just flip them. If you opt to improve them, then make your changes. If you want to flip them, refer to #77.

How much can I make out of finding expired domains?
