There are so many ways one can make money online. I'm going to link here some of my favorite spots. Click the links to go to the sites.
Branded Surveys! This site was once known as Mint Vine. I have made some good funds on this site. It's pretty simple to use, but word of advice. Once you start doing surveys you will notice that you get declined a lot. You have to keep going, because perseverance is what got me through. After getting declined for surveys they began to roll in.
On this site you accrue points from each survey that you take. When you reach 1000 points you have $10.00 and can cash out via Pay Pal and Dwolla. If you are persistent you can easily make $30 or more a month.
myLot is a great place as well. This is a writing site where you can write about your day. it's not one of those article writing sites, it's a discussion site. If you are looking for some folks that you can have wonderful conversations with, then this is the place.
On this site you earn pennies for interacting with each other via commenting on posts. It's all about the conversations on this site. I know someone who has made $20 a month on here. The pay out is automatically done on the 15th of the month. If you are at $5.00 then you will get paid, if not then you have time to reach the pay out for the following month.
