1. Surveys: The first way that I actually got paid online was with surveys, ($6) but I can tell you that it took many hours of applying to different sites, signing up and taking painfully long and boring surveys.
There are survey data bases that will promise you $100’s or dollars for each survey. Beware! Don’t just go ahead and sign up. They will give you a list of surveys that do not deliver and that can be found for free on the internet with a little searching.
If you want to try making money online with surveys I recommend that you start with free survey sights first and see if like it, (more importantly- if you get paid).
A few people will make some money in the survey game but I can’t see it amounting to much more than pocket money.
2. Data entry jobs: Now as far as scams go this is a tricky one, there are a lot of people making a lot of money this way but don’t be fooled in to thinking that all you have to do is to sit at home and type… and that is the scam.
Basically data entry jobs or make money typing jobs are mostly just a small part of affiliate marketing and it is a lot more complicated and involved than just typing or data capture.
There is a possibility to make money this way but don’t be fooled into thinking that it will be as simple as typing from home… This does take time and effort.
3. Multi-Level Marketing (MLM): This scam is just an overpriced product that does not sell and it is actually only the subscription to sell the product that sells. That is why this is more like a pyramid scheme than anything else. Now some people will make a little money for a limited period of time but most people(almost all) will end up losing.
I don’t think that I need to go into a lot of detail because most of you know about pyramid schemes, if you don’t just ask around.
There are a lot of ways to make money online for beginners but just beware of scams and think twice before getting out your wallet. Keep trying and you will succeed, just find what is right for you and go for it!
