Are you still surfing the web for free? Read on to find ways to make money online while you’re getting your internet fix.

Affiliate Marketing

Put a link to a product on your site. Whenever people buy, you get a commission. And it’s more than chump change. Sites like Click Bank and Amazon Associates can pay out $100 per sale depending on the product.

CPA Marketing

Cost Per Action is another super-simple way to earn money online. Just put the link on your page. Every time users click on it and perform an action — like getting a free quote on car insurance — you get paid.

Try sites like Offer Vault and Max Bounty that offer frequent and reliable payouts.

Content Revenue Sharing

Have a viral-worthy YouTube channel but no traffic? Share revenue by verifying your channel with YouTube or post your link on another major site and get paid for your viewers.

Video Marketing

With the right marketing, your online shopping habit can pay for itself. Start a series of videos on shopping finds, hair tutorials or anything else. Then post your videos on sites like YouTube, Vimeo, Aol and Flixya allow you to partner up with products and get paid to share them with your viewers.

Site Flipping

Good at spotting great sites before they go viral? Consider site flipping.

It’s just like Flip This House, but with websites. Site flippers buy marginally popular websites while their price is low. Then they spruce them up with great content, attract readers and re-sell them at a profit on sites like Flippa, Sedo or

Answer Questions

Spend most of your after-work time online? If you’re an expert in any field, you could answer a few questions while you’re bingeing on Netflix.

Sites like LivePerson and JustAnswer will pay you to answer questions from other browsers and earn in your spare time.

Take Paid Surveys

This might be the easiest way to earn money while you’re online. Sites like MySurvey, TellWut and Cash Crate don’t pay much but that’s just because checking boxes is so simple.

PPC Marketing

Pay-per-click marketing is simple. Let GoogleAdWords, Facebook Ads or Amazon Product Ads but banners on your site. Then sit back and earn every time users click.

E-Mail Marketing

Don’t want to flood your page with banner ads? Try e-mail marketing. Simply use sites like AWeber or Mail Chimp to sign your readers up to an e-mail list. Then get paid every time your subscribers click.

Investing and Lending

Looking to turn your money into more money with no effort at all.? Try micro-lending. Sites like Lending Club, Prosper and ETrade let you earn as much as 15% on micro-loans of as little as a few hundred dollars.

Ask Your Visitors To Become Members

If you’ve got a really great blog, consider asking your readers to pay to become members. As long as the quality stays high your readers will give you steady income in return. Try sites like MagicMembers or Joomla to make the membership process easy.
