It can be really tempting to click on those adverts we see which say that we can get money online for free. It is always wise to be extremely cautious when you see something like this. Why would someone give you money for free? It is a rather odd idea!

Normally when you want money you have to earn it in one way or another. This can be the same with opportunities online. This can suit many people, but it depends on what you have to do in order to earn and how much time it will take. As online work is not covered by UK law on minimum wage, then you will find that a lot of the work does not pay very much money. You can therefore find that you will have to put in a lot of time and effort in order to make very much money. However, this could suit you if you are looking for something that you can do from home and is relatively easy.

Sites will vary in the ways that they will ask you to earn money and some will be more suited to you than others. It is good to do some research about making money online to find out about the sorts of opportunities that are available to you. You will find that there are money making forums, message boards and website where people will give details of ways that they make money online and will provide proof of payment. These are very useful as you will be able to see immediately what might appeal to you and even follow links to the websites so that you can start work right away.

There are a few ways where you can get free money without really earning it. You can get cashback on purchases through some sites. You will have to visit the site and click a link to the retailer you are shopping at through the site and they will track your purchase and pay you money for that. The amounts can be quite small, perhaps just a few percent of what you spend, but if you shop online anyway, then using this can mean that you can get a bit of money back each time you shop. This can all add up and you can end up getting a nice of chunk of money eventually.

Another way is by doing online competitions. These will have a lot of entrants and so the chances of winning can be small. However, there is always a chance that you might win and if you have the time then you could think that it is worth a try. Free lottery sites are similar. You have to check them daily in order to find out whether you have won. They are funded by advertising so will not work when you have an ad blocker on but they can be a chance to win some money. Online surveys are similar too, if you qualify for a survey and answer the questions, you can get paid. This is great for anyone who likes giving their opinions on things!
