There is a lot of talk about online earning, but what are people actually doing to earn money. There are surprisingly wide range of ways to earn money online and likely to be something that everyone can have a go at.

Some people prefer to have fun and earn small amounts. These get money through answering surveys, taking part in free lotteries, watching videos and adverts or even listening to the radio. There are sites that pay in money and vouchers for doing these sorts of things and although the earnings are not huge, they can still add up and make a difference to your income while you are having fun.

If you want to earn more then you will need to look towards perhaps doing some freelance work. This could involve writing, programming, designing or other skilled work which you will get paid for. You can find jobs like these on specific websites. They tend to not pay huge amounts of money, but they can still be a great way to supplement your income or a way to get some money in if you want or need to stay at home for work.

Some people make money by running a website. They might sell items from the website or they may sell advertising on it. This used to be a better paid area than it is now as there is a lot of competition. However, if you find a niche area and produce a good site, you could still attract some reasonable advertisers.

If you like buying and selling things or making things to sell, then this is another way that you could make money online. There are lots of places online where you can sell things and so  it is worth taking a look at them and choosing where might be best for you. Most will charge you to list things for sale and take a commission on the money you make form selling items so you have to think about how much you will need to charge so that you can cover those costs. If you set up your own website to sell through, you will get all of the money but you will have to pay for the site and think about how to promote it so that you attract customers to buy from it.

So these are just a few of the ways that you can make money online. There are many opportunities out there and many money making forums which will lead you to the various places. It is worth checking these out as they will also let you know which sites are genuine and will pay you and which are not. This is important as you do not want to waste your time working for sites and then not get paid. It is sad that this is a risk but it is important to be aware of it so that you protect yourself against it and make sure that you are working for genuine places that will pay you.
