In this two…maybe three-part article, I will be going over some of the ways to earn money with online methods. There are a number of ways to learn how to make money online, and I’ve written quite a few articles about this topic because, for some reason, it seems to be quite popular… 🙂 So, in this article, we will specifically address how to earn money with online: work, and online paid surveys.
As mentioned, I have written quite a few articles about working from home and earning money online. In one of these articles, I discussed learning how to build a blog with Wealthy Affiliate, and how I’ve come to review other member’s blog sites. Of these, I’ve listed a few different niches to represent some of the blogs I was reading. They are as follows:
- Cakes – Doctored cakes
- Cake Decorating
- Physical Aid Items: Wheelchairs, Shower stools, etc.
- Halloween – Masquerade Costumes
- FOOD! (Oh, some of the recipes I have seen…)
- Organic FOOD!
- Vegetable Gardening
- Colorado – Best Places to Visit
- Scuba Diving

This list appears in another article I wrote about Residual Income. You can read that article by clicking this link: The Best Residual Income Businesses. Many of these “earn money from home residual income opportunities” can be started on a part-time basis. So, you won’t have to quite your day job just yet. Writing a blog can be extremely fun and rewarding. Bloggers get to share their interests, passions, and their willingness to share experiences and/or teach what they know to their specific audience or target market. And, …you can earn a pretty good living too!
Although we have quite a few success stories at Wealthy Affiliate, Colton’s success story is probably the one that is shared the most. Unfortunately, he changed his profile, but, basically, he was working at a gas station while going to school. He used to earn somewhere around $700.00 a month, and after he realized what he could earn online, he put in the time to be able to quit his gas station job after only 7 or 8 months of blogging. He mentioned that his initial efforts were pretty intense – writing one to three posts per day. But, now, he only posts one or two articles a week and currently averages $3-5K a month working less than the hours he spent at his old gas station job. His efforts paid off big time last November, however, and you can click here to read about his first $10,000 month!

Although I have seen these being advertised here and there, please know that I have not reviewed any of these products listed below. Having stated that, I will probably not review them as I am currently focusing on software programs being offered to people who want to learn affiliate marketing or how to build an e-commerce site – rather than take surveys. But, seeing that there are companies who do pay for marketing surveys, these may be legitimate, and so, I will list some of these opportunities here for your convenience.

- Click For Surveys
- Get Cash For Surveys – English Version
- Get Cash For Surveys – Spanish Version
- Paid Surveys At Home
- Get Paid For Your Opinions / This is a Subscription Service – The first 7 days are free.
As mentioned, I probably will not be reviewing the companies that offer Paid Online Surveys. I looked into online surveys a long while ago, and, from what I remember, some surveys are quite lengthy and are time consuming. In addition to that, you have to be the type of person who is not bashful about answering personal questions such as: are you married, how much do you earn, how many children are in your household, etc., and you may be bombarded with offers, coupons, etc. So, if you’re not the bashful type, you’re pretty patient, and don’t mind being bombarded or filling out long surveys, you may be interested. If, on the other hand, you do try any of these companies out and they don’t work out, I invite you to please come back and post your comments. I’d be curious to know your thoughts.
Seeing that this article is getting lengthy, I’ll be taking a break here. No worries – This article will pick up where I’ve left off. In Part 2 of this article, I will be discussing “How To Earn Money With Online…(Part 2)” …Marketing; Ads; Websites; Educational Forums, and Software Programs.
To Your Wealth!
