There are many people that make money online and it can be rather a mystery to some as to how they do it. There are actually a lot of different ways that you can potentially make money and you will be able to choose between them if it is something that you want to do.

Freelance Work

Some people will pick up freelance work online which they might do at home. There are websites where employers can list different jobs that they need doing and then people can apply for these jobs. There are lots of different types of jobs available so it is possible that there will be something that you will want to do. There will be competition and you may find that the pay will not be that high, but this might be okay with you because you are happy to be earning this way. Hopefully you will be able to find something that you enjoy and will be happy to do to get some extra money.

Surveys and Small Jobs

Some companies offer small jobs to get money such as answering surveys. These can be fun to do but they will not pay very much. You will often find that you will need to accumulate a certain amount of money before you can cash out as well. This means that it can take a long time before you get paid but if you enjoy it, then you may just see the pay as a bit of a bonus for the fun things that you are doing.

Free Lotteries

There are several sites that you can sign up to where you can enter a free lottery. These are not associated with any of the big lottery companies, but they are funded by the advertising on the website. This means that you have to go to the website each day (or sometimes more often) to see if you have won and you will be exposed to adverts. You may not like this idea, but it does mean that you have a chance of winning some money for doing very little. Some will even email you daily to remind you to check so it is really simple. The prizes will be quite small compared to a lottery that you pay for but as you pay nothing then it can be well worth it. Also lottery prizes are tax free, which is an added bonus!


Some people will make a website, blog or even social media page (or perhaps a combination of these) and make money out of these. They may put together an online shop, provide information and sell advertising on the site or have affiliate links where they raise money. There are different things that they can try which could help them to make money from the website. It will depend on the nature of the website as to what might be the best way to make money and it will need to be promoted well and have a lot of traffic in order to make money from it.


Some people will make videos to earn money. They might make instructional videos or informative ones and then publish them and make money from advertising on them. This can be very lucrative for some people but it is very competitive. You will have to think of a way to stand out from other doing the same thing and you will have to keep bringing out new content as well. You will also find that you will not be able to get sponsorship until your videos have attracted over a minimum amount of views, so you may have to work hard on promoting them as well.
