Most people believe that all methods of Make Money Online take a couple months or weeks of hard work.
This is not true.
While I won’t deny that time certainly helps in making more money, there are still very real ways you can make money online starting right now.
And here’s the amazing thing:

Not only is it VERY possible to make $1 dollar a day using each site below, but it is certainly achievable to make that starting right now.
The key is to figure out the sites that work best for you and learn how to take advantage of their strengths.
However, don’t judge the effectiveness of making money using them by my success (or lack thereof).
If you work at it you will very easily, and quickly, start to make money online.
In fact, with many of these sites, it is very reasonable to make a good bit of money literally right after you sign up with them.
26 Sites to Make Money Online Right Now
Cashcrate is a very reliable and fast paying site that pays you for completing surveys, watching videos, and doing other easy tasks. One cool thing is that they pay you $.03 just for checking back with the site every day. Might seem small, but over the course of a year that starts to add up. For your first payment they send it to you in the mail, and then they start sending you money via your PayPal account.
PaidViewpoint is a newer survey site that has a very nice look and feels to it. The surveys they have are pretty short and pay quite well for your time. Once you build up your reputation you will qualify for higher paying surveys. I’ve been with them for a couple months now and they are on the top of my list as far as quality goes. I’m pretty sure this site will be HUGE within a year or two. Now’s the perfect chance to get in on the money!
GlobalTestMarket has been around for years and they’ve paid out millions to their users. This site by far has close to the most surveys to take. However, there are times when you will screen out of a survey after beginning it. Don’t worry if this happens every now and then. It’s only because GlobalTM must please the companies that are paying for the surveys to be administered. When you screen out, it just means that you didn’t match the target audience the survey company needed. Don’t let that stop you from making some money, just keep treading on for another survey!
MySurvey is also a top-notch survey site. While I personally don’t use them as much (since I only recently came across them), it is still clearly evident that others do. In 2012 they awarded their members over $15,108,000.
Not too shabby if you ask me
Microworkers is known as a “Get-Paid-To” site (GPT). Some of the jobs and tasks that people are paying to be done are SUPER easy and they will pay pretty darn good money for your time. Most of the tasks can be completed in under 3 minutes and are as basic as following someone on Twitter, commenting on a YouTube video, etc. For most of these tasks you’ll get paid upwards of $.30-$.90 for each one you do. Definitely check this site out if you haven’t used it before.
6. Mechanical Turk
Mechanical Turk is Amazon’s version of a GPT site. Like Microworkers, you get paid for completing easy tasks that people are paying to be done. Some of the payouts on this site are not as much as Microworkers, but it’s still a great place to add to your portfolio for making money.
Jobboy is another popular GPT site out there. Definitely is not the size of Microworkers, but many of these smaller sites specialize in other tasks that are not as common as the larger GPT sites.
ShortTask is a GPT site that allows its users to complete the same task twice. Most other GPT sites do not allow anyone to do this. As such, if there’s a task you particularly find yourself more apt to do, you can do it more than once to make more money.
Minijobz is yet another GPT site that is smaller, yet still used by a decent amount of people. Great to use if you run out of tasks to complete on other GPT sites you use.
CloudCrowd is the last GPT site I mention here, but it is also in a very unique niche. Clowdcrowd tends to focus more on tasks that involve writing copy for others that will pay for it. It is a smaller site and you do need to build up a small rep to complete some of the tasks, but there are a decent amount of jobs to complete.
Elance is a unique site for making money, or getting stuff you don’t want to do done. People post jobs or tasks that they need, and then anyone can bid on that job. There are a TON of jobs on this site. The next two sites below are very similar to Elance, but I personally like Elance’s layout a bit better.
Update! Upwork is also another awesome site for picking up some freelance jobs. For instance, in 2012, over $360 million dollars was spent by Odesk clients. If you’re into freelancing, that money could be yours!
Guru is yet even another freelance site for picking up jobs. See the potential in this arena? While I personally haven’t used them yet, they have over 400,000 freelancers and are clearly being used. You might enjoy checking them out also.
Fiverr. What would you do for 5 bucks? No literally…what would you do for 5 bucks? Fiverr is a great place for you to create gigs for others to buy. I’ve been using them for a month now and I really find this site cool. Be creative, start now, and soon you’ll be rowing in the dough.
TenBux is exactly like Fiverr, but they have a slightly different community as well as pricing structures. If you use Fiverr a good deal, just copy some of your gigs on over to TenBux and maybe it will double your money
eBay is by far the best auction site out there for selling personal (as well as business) items. You’ve probably heard of them at least, but have you ever tried selling stuff with them? I’ve been selling stuff on eBay for over 3 years and I’ve had A LOT of success with it. Last January I sold over $800 worth of stuff in roughly 3 days. They do take a percentage of the sale, but it’s an absolutely amazing way to make some cash online very quickly. It’s easy to do and once you’ve been doing it a while you get your money almost immediately in PayPal.
Amazon is also getting very popular for personal online selling. I’ve sold numerous textbooks on Amazon that I couldn’t seem to sell on eBay. Like eBay, however, it’s very easy to set up a seller account with Amazon and begin to make money online from the stuff you don’t need anymore. If you want to look into more advanced ecommerce methods using Amazon and eBay check out drop shipping. Drop shipping is competitive, but to those who do it well there are profits to be made.
Craigslist is the absolute BEST site for selling your items locally. If you like the idea of selling things using the internet (but want to avoid having to mess with online transactions) Craigslist is for you. It’s very easy to list an item and watch as the emails fly in from people offering to come take a look at your product.
19. Sponsored Tweets
Sponsored Tweets has been around for a while now, and so it’s definitely not as popular as it was. However, if you have a good following on Twitter it’s definitely a way to begin monetizing that influence you have.
20. Onwardz Social
Onwardz Social is a relatively new site that connects influencers in any capacity with brands. I wrote an article looking in detail at the potential Onwardz Social offers anyone who takes advantage of it.
Flippa is a great way to make money Online if you’re into developing sites and then reselling them. Many people are very successful at creating niche websites in a day or two and then selling them for large sums a few days later. This does require a bit of work (and Flippa does take a cut of the sale), but there is certainly a lot of potential to those who take advantage of it.
Adsense is Google’s advertising platform. The most common way of Make money Online with Adsense is by monetizing your own websites and videos (building traffic does take a decent amount of time and effort though.) Another excellent way to bring in some Adsense earnings though is to write articles for revenue sharing websites. They do take a cut of your earnings, but it’s easy to make more money because revenue sharing sites are usually ranked well with Google and get a pretty good sized amount of traffic. The next two sites below are some of the most popular revenue sharing sites.
Squidoo is my personal favorite revenue sharing website out there. You can easily implement Adsense, InfoLinks, & Amazon Affiliate ads on the articles that you write. The great thing about using this site is that you can leverage the traffic, domain authority, and PageRank of a high-ranking site like this to make you money now.
HubPages is another well-known revenue sharing site. While I’ve only personally used Squidoo, if you’re looking to write articles for a site that gets a pretty high amount of referral and search engine traffic HubPages might be just for you.
MyView is an established survey site that has a good number of surveys to take. While they aren’t my favorite survey site out there, I still complete surveys with them every now and then because they do have pretty consistent surveys. If you are an avid survey taker I would encourage you to add them to your repertoire.
Toluna is a survey site that allows for members from all over the world. I’m still testing this site out myself, but it does seem promising. If you do (or don’t) live in the US, Toluna may be exactly for you!
Overall, make money online starts with $1 at a time.
It took me a decent while to test out the effectiveness of most of these sites, but I can guarantee you that you can make money Online from the sites listed above.
I’m just beginning to tap into the potential that all of these sites offer and I hope to every day learn how to more effectively earn money from them.
I’m just glad to be living in an era where to make money Online from a coffee shop is possible!
I wish you the best of luck also in your money-making efforts!
