The question really goes: do you want to earn or make online money, or do you want to earn big online money today. There is a difference you know. Some people can earn or make online money by simply setting up a website and selling wares. This can easily be seen in the countless websites selling specific products, or advertising services or even promoting ideas to sell. You can do this in 2 ways too. You could sell your own wares. Or you could sell someone else’s wares.
Selling your own wares is nice way to earn or make online money, as long as you have a novel idea to back it. Such ideas like doggy goggles (or doggles) and string voodoo dolls are novel ideas that are literally making its makers a lot of money. Others prefer to market an already existing product like e-books written by others; or products made by other companies (as with the case of affiliate marketing.) However, this method would entail a lot of advertising efforts on your part, not to mention driving endless traffic to your work. Assuredly enough, there are less complicated ways to earn or make online money.
One will be answering surveys and the lot. Paid surveys exist in all form at all times. There will always be online companies who will be setting up survey questions for people to answer. So, if you are willing to allocate about an hour or so to some tedious question answering process, paid surveys can easily help you earn or make online money without the need to buy your own website or subscribe to traffic generating schemes. Two things of caution though. If you are willing to go for paid surveys, try to develop a system where you can work as fast paced as possible while being thorough at the same time. This will help you complete surveys in as fast as time possible.
Additionally, you may want to have a different e-mail address specifically for your paid online surveys. Although your email address should remain confidential, there are some companies who inadvertently allow third parties to capture this information for spam use. You certainly would not wish for this to happen to your personal account. Also, some online survey companies cater to a limited geographical location. Some may take surveys from people living in the entire country; others prefer a specific state; and others are limited to a specific city. It would be less of a waste of time if you could ascertain this beforehand. You may actually not get paid or not be allowed to take survey jobs (even if you are legit) if you are beyond their expected geography.
Lastly, in order to earn or make online money substantially from online surveys, you could always subscribe to one or more companies. Most survey companies are not exclusive, so you can take on several memberships all at once. Those that demand membership fees are best left alone. I mean, who pays for the right to answer surveys? They should be paying you and not the other way around. Once you know precisely how much your expected rates are, you may want to set how much money you want to earn per day, week or month. This will help you see how much money you can earn by simply answering surveys.
