Sites to earn money

Browsing the Internet, you came across the site of a guy who boasted stratospheric earnings in the face of a “work” commitment of a few hours a day. Since you are not very familiar with the world of the Web, you have wondered if there really are sites to make money and, if so, how to use them to your advantage. The answer to your question is yes: making money on the Internet is something absolutely feasible. However, it is necessary to make a necessary clarification: as in “real” life, even on the Web one must work hard to obtain significant results, otherwise, the gains obtained are rather small.

As you can see from reading the next paragraphs, there are in fact sites (such as those that allow you to sell used items or participate in surveys) that allow you to earn small amounts relatively quickly and easily. To earn real money, turning your Internet business into a full-fledged job, you need to invest time and sacrifices, perhaps in creating a blog or website (as I did). Therefore, avoid falling into the traps of those charlatans of the Net who promise easy earnings with phantom activities to be carried out online: it is certainly some scam.

Since I see you quite interested in the subject, I would say to put aside the chatter right away and take action. Strength and courage: make yourself comfortable, take all the time you need to concentrate on reading the next lines and, above all, try to implement the “tips” that I will give you. I hope this guide can help you better understand how to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the web to make money online. I wish you happy reading and I wish you a big good luck for everything!

Sites to earn money fast

Let’s see, first, some sites to earn money quickly. Since these are relatively “easy” earnings, which can be obtained without requiring who knows what commitment or skill, do not expect to make large numbers through the solutions indicated below. Rather, consider it an opportunity to supplement your salary a little – nothing more.

Sites for the sale of used items

The sites for the sale of used items can be an immediate source of income. After all, we all have some object at home that we no longer use and that we could get rid of and get something out of it (assuming it is in good condition and can be useful to someone). Listed below are some useful portals for selling used items.

  • eBay– I am sure that at least once you have visited the very famous online auction portal, which allows you not only to buy used items, but also to sell them. The listings can be published on eBay for free, although it must be said that there is a commission of 11.5% (to which you must add a commission of 0.35 euros per transaction + taxes on shipping costs) calculated on the basis of each successful sale (obviously shipping costs are excluded). More info here .
  • Subitoand Kijiji  – these popular ad sites allow you to post ads easily and free of charge, with a preference for hand-swapping. They allow you to sell virtually any item, making it easier to find potential buyers. They also allow you to give more visibility to your advertisements by sponsoring them for a fee (however, be aware that it is not mandatory to do so). More info here.
  • Autoscout24– do you have a car or a motorbike in your garage that you want to get rid of? Thanks to this famous portal, entirely dedicated to the sale of cars, motorcycles and other vehicles, you can publish your ads for free, without paying commissions or other expenses. More info here.

Sites to earn money with surveys

Even sites to earn money with surveys are perfect to supplement their income. Through these portals it is not possible to bring home significant gains but, since they are free and do not require who knows what skills, it is worth taking them into consideration anyway.

Among the most important sites in this sector I mention  Global Text Market,  MySurvey and  American Consumer Opinion. For more information on how to make money with surveys through the sites in question, take a look at the guide that I linked to you: I am sure it will be useful to you.

Sites for writing texts

Do you like writing articles, tutorials, short stories and so on? In this case, I suggest you turn to sites to write texts, which allow you to earn money for those who have a passion for writing.

One of the best sites of this kind is  MelaScrivi, a marketplace that allows you to sell your content to professionals and companies interested in buying articles, video transcripts, translations, guides, product sheets, opinions, information, news and so on.

How are the fees calculated on MelaScrivi? Based on the length of the texts and their quality, expressed in stars. All new authors start at 1 star and can earn € 0.008 / word; the highest level that can be reached is the  4-star one, which allows you to obtain compensation for  1.5 euros/word.

When contacting MelaScrivi, keep in mind that for each article you have to pay a small commission of € 0.70  and it is possible to get payments for your articles only when the minimum threshold of € 25 is reached. More info here.

Sites to earn real money

Rounding up your salary through the help of the sites I mentioned in the previous lines is not your highest aspiration, as you would like to try to create a serious online business? So let me recommend sites to earn real money.

I would like to reiterate what has already been said in the introduction of the post: earning a lot of money through an online business is not impossible at all, but it requires a lot of effort and a little patience, given that concrete results come in the long term. That said, let’s proceed!

Sites to start a successful blog

The first solution that I recommend you to consider, if you want to try to earn real money on the Internet, is to turn to sites to open a successful blog. The most famous of these is  WordPress, a CMS ( Content Management System ) that is simple to use and capable of being also very flexible. It allows you to easily create blogs and websites to customize with ready-to-use graphic themes and plugins. In another guide I have already explained to you in detail how to create a blog with WordPress.

Be aware, however, that there are also other platforms that, like WordPress, allow you to create blogs and websites, including Joomla! (which I told you about in detail in this article ) and Google Blogger (which I told you about in this other tutorial ). To get a smattering of the various features of each of these solutions, feel free to consult my guide on how to create a successful blog because I am sure it will be useful to you.

Once the blog is created, however, how do you make money with it? Basically there are three possible sources of income, which I list below.

  • Advertising– thanks to the insertion of banners on the pages of your blog or website (with services such as  Google Adsense ), it is possible to obtain earnings based on the number of visits obtained: the higher the number of readers of your web space, the greater are earnings. As you can well understand, to get income from advertising, you need to have a fairly high traffic.
  • Affiliations– By participating in affiliate programs, such as  Amazon’s, you can earn money by placing sponsored links within articles on your blog or website. If users click on these links and purchase sponsored products through the latter, the seller recognizes to the blogger a percentage of the sales generated through the link (even not directly for the linked product).
  • Special Projects– Popular bloggers can also make money through special projects. Those who enjoy a certain notoriety, for example, can be invited to events, training courses and so on, and monetize them through the latter.

For more information on how to make money with a blog, consult the in-depth analysis that I just linked to and, if you find it interesting, consider buying my book ” Il Metodo Aranzulla ” (published by Mondadori Electa ), where I proceeded to explain how to turn an online business into a successful digital business.

Sites to make money with video making

Do you like making videos and have no problem standing in front of a video camera? So why don’t you turn to a site to make money with video making? You may be able to turn your passion into a real job.

Do you want me to name you some platform suitable for the purpose? The first that comes to mind is YouTube, given its enormous popularity. I guess you already know it, but do you know exactly how to make money on YouTube? I’ll explain it to you right away.

First you need to open a channel and then you can try to earn through the  YouTube Partner Program, which you can join after reaching 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 viewing hours in the last year. Also not to be underestimated is the possibility of earning money with affiliate networks  (which can be found thanks to platforms such as SocialBlade ), which constitute a sort of “meeting point” between youtubers and affiliate networks.

Since a large part of the revenues, in this case, comes from advertising, as in the case of those who want to monetize with a blog, even on YouTube you have to focus on large numbers: the greater the views, the greater the earnings. If you want more information on how to make a lot of subscribers on YouTube and how to make money on YouTube, consult the guides that I linked to you: you will see that they will be useful to you.
