Generating An Online Income ... How Easy Is It?

How can I make money online? This seems to be a common question these days.

With the unemployment rates so high and jobs so scarce, people are now turning to the internet to generate extra income. It sounds pretty simple right? Especially when you read about people that are making a few hundred to thousands of dollars, if not more, online every month. How do they do it? Most people believe that you can make a lot of money online and not spend a dime out of pocket. I am a true believer in the old saying, "You have to spend money to make money". It is so very true, especially if you want to earn A LOT of money each month. Those who invest a little will reap greater profits. However, if you are just loo
king to make a few extra dollars each month, there are options.

So, how can you generate some extra cash without any out of pocket expense? I asked myself that same question, which prompted me to explore the possibilities. As a result, I acquired a great deal of knowledge on how the internet can be a resourceful money making tool. Have I become rich ? No. Is it an excellent source of secondary income? Absolutely! So, how can you get there? Well, to start, you can take online surveys, participate in focus groups, get paid to complete offers or sign up for products, read emails, shop online, play games online, and much more! Again, sounds simple right? It is, but only if you put in the time and effort and find a legitimate opportunity. There are plenty of sites out there that will pay out to do all those things I mentioned above. These are just a few of best ones out there ...

upgrading for a small fee ... you will have access to more
ads and earn a higher commission on your referrals.

Another great way to earn a few extra dollars, with little or no out of pocket expense, is with Paid To Click sites, or generally known as PTC sites. You simply get paid for clicking on and viewing sponsor ads for a specified amount of time (generally 30 seconds) and earn money for each ad you view. Most sites will pay you anywhere from $0.001 to $0.10 to view individual ads, sometimes more - depends on the site. Each site is different so make sure you read the payment terms.

You can also get paid to sign up to other sites and read ads. PTC sites are also a great traffic exchange resource for promoting your own website, if you have one, or promoting other PTC sites. However, member beware ... a lot of sites will promise you the stars and the moon and huge payouts but that's not always the case. It's wise to be smart when looking for online opportunities and to know when something is too good to be true. However, there are some legitimate, real, reliable PTC sites where you will be paid for your efforts and sometimes instantly. I generally like to check out any new PTC site that I stumble upon with imreportcard.com but of course there are many other review sites as well that you can turn to for feedback on a particular PTC site. You won't get rich clicking on ads on PTC sites but you will be able to generate a nice cash flow for yourself if you put in the time and effort. Some of the best instant payout sites are below. I would highly suggest renting referrals if you can't recruit on your own. With the help of your referrals, you will reach the minimum payout thresholds much faster and be able to earn multiple times with 1 month. You should also have a Paypal or Alertpay account so that you can be paid accordingly. If you do not have a Paypal or Alertpay account, use these links to sign up for one or both. I would suggest both as only choosing one limits the amount of sites you can join depending on how they pay out.

Now the other question most people have is how do you succesfully succeed with PTC Sites? Answer: Referrals! Referrals, or commonly known as your downline, are a necessity with any PTC site. With referrals, you will generate a much bigger cash flow and reach the minimum payment requirement on each site much more quickly and more frequently. There are two ways to get referrals: You can recruit them by advertising your unique URL link or banner for each PTC you are associated with or you can purchase them. Purchasing referrals is a great method when recruiting does not come easy for you. Some sites will charge $1 per referral for 30 days while others may charge minimal prices ranging from $0.15 to $0.75 per referral. Again, it depends on the site. Most often, you can recycle your non-active referrals for a very small price or extend your rental of them after the initial 30 days is up. Here are some more of the best PTC sites out there ...

Perhaps you want to do more than just click on ads for a few extra dollars a month. Maybe you are looking for an opportunity to create residual income from home. For those who are really serious about having a home business opportunity, affiliate marketing is a great place to start. The dream of working at home and not having to answer to a "boss" all day lingers in the minds of people everyday. Finding the right home business opportunity can be difficult and often very frustrating. With all the scams on the internet today, it can be time consuming trying to figure out which ones are worth investing in and which ones you should run away from. And, once you do find the right business opportunity, you need to work at it and put in the time and effort to reap the rewards. If you're not motivated and aren't willing to put forth any effort, then a real home business opportunity may not be the right thing for you. Success doesn't happen overnight nor does it happen for those who sit around waiting for it. There are websites, however, that don't require you to promote products at all. You just have to promote your unique URL, as a member of the site, and reap the rewards of referring those who sign up under you. Some will even give you a sign up bonus just to join. Unlike PTC Sites, you can't buy referrals so you will need to know how to market and recruit. Then, there are always the "forced matrix" sites that we hear so much about on the internet today. These sites claim that even if you can't recruit, your downline levels will still be filled due to the overspill of referrals from your sponsor. So before you start registering for home business opportunities, think about how much time and effort you really have or want to put into it. The following sites offer a variety of real home business opportunities and those that require less effort and sometimes a bonus to join.

Plus, you will get paid every time you add length to your Geostring.
