When people hear the term 'easy money' the common thoughts that come to mind are 'SCAM!!' or 'THERE'S NO SUCH THING!! However, people are making what can only be described as 'easy money' online from simply sitting at their computer. How do they do it? I'll show you 6 of the many ways YOU can make easy money online without ever leaving your desk! These tips are for those that know a lot about computers and the internet, those that know a little and those that just know the very basics.

1. TAKE PART IN ONLINE SURVEYS.

Companies all over the world need to find out what people think about their products and what they would be most likely to buy in the future. They also want to know what it will take to get people to buy a certain product. You might say to yourself "why would my opinion be so valuable?". Well IT IS!! It's as important to a company as any other opinion in the world. And they are WILLING TO PAY YOU FOR IT. They hire survey companies to help them find out this information. Paying for you to take surveys is the quickest and easiest way for a company to get the information and feedback they need. Simply search for survey websites that actually pay. As soon as you join and sign up with them you will begin to receive surveys and most importantly start earning money.

2. FLIPPING WEBSITES.

You must search for a website that someone has built which gets a decent amount of traffic. Keyword research(you can use Google Keywords) will reveal subject areas and keywords which are popular online, and it is these kinds of websites that attract traffic that you should look for. Unfortunately one can't simply pick a good domain name and post a few articles and affiliate links on a website and expect it to make a lot of money. Time and effort is required. Lack of effort and time is why websites with potential fail every day. If you make a reasonable offer to such an owner for their website they will likely be more than happy to sell it to you. That affords you the opportunity to develop it and build on its success. Eventually you can sell it for a tidy profit!

3. YOUTUBE.

If you have any video making apparatus then you can make easy money by using YouTube properly! Firstly, if you have items you are trying to sell use YouTube to advertise them. It may seem simple but you'd be surprised the small number of people who actually use this priceless tool. Advertise you product in YouTube videos and THEN sell it on eBay or Craigslist or wherever. By stimulating interest in whatever you're selling on YouTube you will have a market built up that will start to bid immediately when you let them know it's for sale. In a sense you are making your product more famous! Secondly, tell local businesses that you are putting lots of videos on YouTube. Ask them if they would like to have their name/product mentioned in your videos. This would increase the market viewing their product? They can pay you! Or give you free merchandise! What are the chances they'll turn down the advertising!? You cannot actually canvass for business directly on YouTube but you can draw people to your website from it. Use Google AdSense (you sign up and Google pays you to put ads on your videos!). TIP!! The ads will be at the end of your video so keep your videos short so as to maximize the number of viewers making it to the end of your video and actually clicking on the advertisement!

4. SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION.

You might have heard of tricks to get search engines to index you faster or rank you higher. DON'T USE THEM as they will get you kicked off. The best thing to do is to establish a worthwhile and informative website that will slowly rise in the rankings. You can do this by getting familiar with white hat search engine optimization(it's a mouthful I know but not as complicated as it sounds!). Search engine optimization is all about designing your websites so that they appeal to the search engines, and so they can find them easily. Most of the techniques are actually very easy to implement. It's important to get the right keywords on your pages. Google Keyword is useful for finding words that are searched often and have low competition. It is important to be aware of the kind of search terms people are likely to type in when they want to find a website like yours? Make sure you build them into your site, and use longer key phrases as well. For example, instead of putting 'weight loss' as keywords for a weight loss themed website, use a phrase like 'weight loss techniques' instead. A good idea is to use different combinations of keywords for every page of your site. This will attract more visitors. Just make sure every page has a clear link back to the site's home page. In the end, the more traffic you attract from search engines, the more sales you will make. If your website provides people with what they look for, and you have put Google Adsense and similar advertising modules on your site, then you can expect to start to make money from your venture.

5. BLOGGING.

Blogging is a brilliant way to start your own online business and it's becoming very popular. It requires minimal start-up costs and you can build a large and loyal readership over time. There are several ways to set up a blog online. You could use WordPress or Blogger or any free site that will host your blog for you; or you can set up your own blog under your own domain name. Whatever you choose to blog about it needs to be something you are passionate about. You'll be writing about this topic several times a week, and if you don't have the enthusiasm for it, that will show in your written work. How can you get your blogs to be read by interested readers? One way to do this is to submit it to as many of the social bookmarking sites as you can. Join social networking sites and build a profile which contains a link to your blog is another effective way. Other free ways to generate traffic include writing free articles for article directories with a link to your blog at the end. Generating traffic is easy! Monetizing the blog itself is the key to earning a profit from your writing. You'll want to generate some money from all the visitors you'll start getting. Google AdSense is probably the best known method of generating such money and you can join the program, displaying free contextual ads that your visitors will be interested in to maximize your click through rate. Eventually you'll be able to offer ad space on your blog too, and charge a fee for ads. There is one final step you can take with your blog in order to earn money...sell it!

6. TARGET A SPECIFIC AUDIENCE.

The best way of making 'easy money' online is to appeal to a niche market interested in a particular topic. If you try to appeal to everyone then very few people will actually buy whatever you happen to be selling. Topical content sites are a great way of making 'easy money' on the internet. Pick your topic, build the site around it and wait for the money to roll! So long as you focus on a profitable topic you're bound to be successful.


Whether you choose to follow one or all of the ways to make 'easy money' online mentioned above or discover different ways, the key ingredient to success is to keep your expectations in line with the effort you are willing to put in. There are people who earn lots and lots of money using these and many other techniques. However, there are also people who do not succeed in making much money whatsoever. With the effort required it is possible for anybody to tap into this market and make themselves a very significant income without leaving their desk.
