How Easy Is It To Make Money On The Internet?

Since the beginning of the internet, people have been finding ways to use it to make themselves richer, and although we can’t argue that many have made quite the success of this, we do have to question if it’s all really as easy as they make it seem.

With that being said, as the lines between who we are offline and online become more blurred, it seems like we’re almost becoming part of the internet, or it’s becoming part of us, and so it really does seem like it’s easier than ever to make money online without being sleazy, especially if we look at things like opportunities to work remotely and even build entire online businesses.

So, what we’ve done is had a look around for you and discovered some of the ways that people are making money online to see if it’s really as easy as it seems.


Freelancing itself has been around long before the internet was even considered a possibility, but like many things, the invention of the internet has made it easier to freelance. One of the main benefits of freelancing online is that you now have a far bigger reach and access to people all around the world than ever before and everything can be done from the comfort of your own home.

People are starting full online businesses thanks to the internet and offering a full range of freelance services from copywriting, graphic design, tax consulting, and much more, so this is definitely one of the best ways we’ve found where people are making legitimate incomes using the power of the internet.


Technically, using free to enter competitions isn’t making you direct income online. However, what we did find was that websites such as WOW Freebies really make it easy to win great items such as MacBook computers, iPhones, and a range of other goods that you’d be expected to pay top dollar for, so if you’re willing to invest a little time in these kinds of competitions and actually win something, you’re really saving yourself a good chunk of cash that you may otherwise have to spend on something like a computer if you did start freelancing.

Paid Surveys:

Paid surveys well all the rage about 10 years ago and at that time they really did have a reputation as being completely scammy, but things have changed since then and people have become more cautious regarding scams online.

Many companies now use surveys as market research and will happily pay for your opinion of their products or services, so it’s really just a case of making sure you know the company offering the survey and avoiding sleazy websites where they claim to pay you, but actually you get nothing.

Affiliate Marketing:

If you’re a blogger or are thinking of starting a blog, then a great way to make cash from that is by signing up as an affiliate for the products or services you will be recommending on your site. If you’re a travel blogger, then maybe you recommend a particular sunscreen and will make a commission on that each time someone purchases through the link on your blog.
