Nice list. The hardest part about most of these is just deciding to do something small to get started. After that stuff starts happening. I really like the affiliate method and I currently make some bucks with a niche affiliate product. It does require being able to analyze competition and do some SEO though but it’s a great “set and forget” way to make money. The other way I currently make an income online isn’t on your list, although point #3 touches on it. Drop shipping is a brilliant way to make some money online without cash flow and fulfillment issues. Go onto a website like Alibaba or eBay, choose a niche product, build a website using something like WordPress and Woocommerce or Shopify and run some Google or FB ads. Heck, Google will even give you free credit for ads on new accounts. Focus is key though. I found that when I tried too many things at once I didn’t see results.

No matter what method you choose to make money online, understand that you might be able to make some money fast, but for the sizable returns, you'll need significant sweat equity. However, a year from now, you'll be happy you started today. Remember, time is far more valuable than money. Focus on creating passive income streams that will free up your time so that you can quit the rat race and focus on the things that matter. 
I know this post is a few months old but I stumbled onto an app called Quickthoughts, a survey site. Unfortunately they only give out Amazon gift cards. You redeem them every time you hit $10 which is shockingly easy because every survey if you qualify pays $2 and then id you don’t qualify they credit you .10. I was skeptical because I hit 10 bucks in less than 2 hours and have cashed out 4 $10 Amazon gift cards .i took a screen shot as proof but not too sure how to post or if I am able my current valance is 5.70 doing a few short surveys just today.

21. Facebook – Facebook swap shops are great for selling things locally. It’s like CraigsList, but a little easier. You simply search for swap shops in your area and ask to join the group. Once you’re in, take a picture of the item, write a quick description with the price and post it. It doesn’t get much easier than that. You can generally expect to get about what you would get at a yard sale, maybe a little more.
There always has to be one jerkoff that needs to correct someone’s information. Do you feel better now that you have made sure your voice was heard. Ok, so it doesn’t pay instantly, perhaps the author’s does. I do Field Agent and have $182.00 this month. It does not payout instantly either, but I did not think to be rude and comment that this person is wrong. Instead, I would like to thank them for compiling such a helpful list and I will be trying a couple of the suggested sites right away. Thanks so much and to the person who must show that he knows something we don’t know……hush.
There’s this awesome app called GrabPoints. In a nutshell they pay you for trying out new apps and answering a couple of surveys. I love using it because they are always active on social media giving out points and the rewards are always fair. Like just for signing up you already get $1 then if you use a friend’s invite code you get 50PTS and easy AND your friend gets points in return too! See even simply inviting people earns you money. If you ever happen to try GRABPOINTS please use my invite code: S6FMAC Hope this helps!
Mechanical Turk: Amazon's Mechanical Turk is a resource for doing human-intelligence tasks, or as the site commonly refers to them, HITs. You get paid a very small fee for any given HIT and you'll need a good deal of volume to make a substantial amount of money. But it is a resource you can use in your spare time to generate a small income online. 
High-ticket consulting or coaching: You could sell your own high-ticket consulting or coaching products from your website. You'll still need a website, merchant account, sales funnel, lead magnet and many other items. But you can easily earn a substantial amount of money from each individual customer, making it well worth the arduous setup required. 
20. Etsy – If you like to create arts and crafts, you can sell them on Etsy.It’s completely free to open an Etsy store. You simply sign up, post pictures of your creations and starting selling. You can choose your payment option, but PayPal is generally the easiest. Etsy makes it easy to sell and keep track of your inventory. There is a small listing fee and they take 3.5% of every sale you make.
Cashcrate is my favorite site and the one that I’ve received the most checks from. I’ve been doing it for about a year now and honestly have never had a problem with it.You earn money by doing free offers, surveys, watching ads, shopping online, participating in live contests and referring your friends and family members to the site.Cashcrate is one of the most popular GPT sites having 990,000+ members.I have made close to $3000 using this great Get Paid To Site. The amazing part is I’ve spent only about 6 hours a week on this site and I’ve earned $300 in 1 month! I can’t urge you enough to try it out for yourself.
Another champion that I have a lot of respect for in this arena is Ramit Sethi. He has an amazing continuity program (Ramit’s Brain Trust) and each month provides useful and specific information for his passionate community. The community thrives off of his wise direction and its members pay him monthly to continue getting access to the community and resources. The beauty of this model is you sell something once and get paid each month for it.
Also known as health information technicians, medical billers are the go-betweens for patients and healthcare providers. And, as you probably guessed, medical billers process and bill for a variety of services given to patients. If you’re thinking, “Not a lot of glamor here,” you’re right. But anyone with a high school diploma or GED can do it, and business is good.
According to Webopedia, “Search engine optimization is a methodology of strategies, techniques, and tactics used to increase the amount of visitors to a website by obtaining a high-ranking placement in the search results page of a search engine.” And as the internet becomes even more crowded, search engine optimization (or SEO) grows even higher in demand.
I’m using a free method as a result of my own researched to discover high value sites online for basically anything. The important thing is to tell Google what you’re looking for. Something like “Free Online Survey Sites That Pay”, then check page rank, and then both quality and quantity of visitors. You will find the article on how to apply this method on my Blog Titled – 2 Simple Research Tactics For Exponential Visitor Conversion At No Cost

I just made my first online dollar today (well South Africa Rand actually, but you get it)! I’m an artist whose been working for commissions for years (a good idea if you want to be steadily paid), but now I want to do my own work. I barely started my online promotional mission and I’ve just had a sale of a print of my work almost by accident. Gives me a lot of encouragement that I’m going in the right direction.

I suppose I should have said She instead of He, and I should not be surprised. Women are notorious for making sure someone is corrected. It is just so frustrating. This person wrote so much helpful information and after reading all that they had provided, this asshat thought to say…….Swagbucks isn’t instant? Really? Why even comment at all? You look so freaking inconsiderate. The age of entitlement……….ho hum. The planet is doomed.
I lost interest in that niche as time continued. But, I already had some experience with blogging and affiliate marketing. At this point, I had the idea to start an internet marketing blog where I could teach others how to make money online. Not that I was making thousands online at that moment, but I had already experience affiliate sales thanks to the power of the internet.

Before I talk about some of the methods for making money online, I wanted to address the role of pain versus pleasure. Every decision that we make in life is weighed on a pain-versus-pleasure scale. We will always do more to avoid pain than we will to gain pleasure, plain and simple. However, this is also what holds us back from succeeding in any endeavor.
