21 Ways To Make Money Online - Internet Marketing

Have you been looking for some ways to make money online? After countless hours of research I was able to compile 21 different ways to help you generate money online. Some are better than others. You will also find some that allow you to start your on business online with a minimum cost, such as http://www.arise.com/.

Here's another that allowed me to generate $500 in less than two months: http://www.500cents-500dollars.org/pages/index.php?refid=megaforce05

So just check them all out and see which ones help you to meet your goal.


1. http://helium.com/

If you are looking for different methods to generate money online then you may want to take a look at Helium. Helium is a site that pays you to write articles. There are over 100 things that you can write about including the following: Arts and humanity, autos, computers, education, religion, spirituality, business, creative writing, entertainment, health and fitness, hobbies and games, home and garden, jobs and careers, parenting and pregnancy, personal finance, pets and animals, politics, news and issues, relationships & family, sciences, society and lifestyle, sports and recreation, travel, style and beauty and the list goes on.
Here is how you make money with helium.

First of all you want to write good quality articles because your articles will be rated against the articles written by others and the better the quality the more you make. Another thing to look at are the number of articles written in a particular category. If you have a category with two articles written there, you have a better chance of getting your article to the number one slot, which means more people will get a chance to look at it and in turn you receive more money. It’s almost the same concept as google adwords but not exactly. With Google adwords you want to select good keywords that get you rated higher in Google.

With helium it is not the keywords but the quality of your articles and the number of articles already written in than category. I submitted an article into a category that had 450 articles already written. This was not a good idea even though my article was ranked number 45. It is still not close enough to the top to get enough people to look at it. Remember the popularity of the article helps determine how much you will make.
The next thing you want to do is refer other people to helium by email and there is a mechanism is the helium system already set up for you to do this. All you have to do is enter the persons name and email address and Helium will send them a personalized email inviting them to write articles.

When someone else writes their first article that you have referred, you get paid $8. You only receive $8 for their first article and after that you are paid a 5% commission on the revenue from the articles of others. With this method the going is slow therefore you have to be patient.

2. http://wiseorb.com/

Wise orb is another writing site. With Wiseorb you can also get paid to write articles on a number of different topics. Another feature of Wiseorb is you are able to do product reviews, as well as “how to guides”, holiday reviews, and essays. You can also just write regarding your general opinion on a number of things, therefore the number of items is unlimited.

There is an approval process that has to take place which is put into place by the editors. Here is how it works, Wise Orb publishes your article on their site and you get paid based on the popularity of the article and that is determined by how many people view your article. Make sure you read the terms and agreements because anything you submit to wise orb becomes their property. You get paid once your total accumulation of income reaches $100 USD at the end of a given month. You can however request smaller payments manually. Any payments received are transacted through pay pal only. There are no restrictions on the length of your articles, however longer articles will attract more readers and generate more income for you. I have heard that payments are not very timely.

3. http://www.reviewstream.com/

A very good way to generate some money online is through review stream. I found this site to be very interesting. You actually get paid to submit reviews which includes just about anything you can think of. The things you can review are unlimited.

You can review different products and services such as, technology, companies, hotels, books, magazines, country clubs, local bar, the shoe shine man, cities, stores on your street. How about the visit at your barber shop or beauty shop; you can review them. Did you visit a flea market today? Do you belong to a fitness center? Great, review the workout facility. Remember your last vacation? Where did you go? What did you do? Where did you stay? Review the hotel and the places you went while on vacation. As you can see the list goes on and on.

Why not review that rental car or even the place you rented it from? These reviews can take minutes and this puts money in your pocket. Make sure you read the, “How to Write Reviews Section” , so you will know how to proceed and what to expect.

Take a look at the service you are receiving from your bank, insurance company, cable company, grocery store, or even your daycare center as all of these provide you with material for reviews.
So how much are you paid for each review? Right now you receive $1.50 for each review and terms and conditions can change so make sure you keep up to date on these changes.

How do you go about writing reviews? First of all, and this is very important you never want to plagiarize. Don,t even think about obtaining someone else’s work and submitting it as your own. This type of activity will serve to get your account closed. Every review you submit must be submitted with review stream exclusively and that means they cannot be submitted and published on your own website.


To really be successful you want to operate efficiently and effectively. Observing these other helpful hints will help you to maximize your efforts: Never use reused or recycled reviews not even a portion of a old review, because the end result is review stream will consider this to be plagiarizing.


Every review should start with a title and always use the complete name of the product or service in which you are reviewing. You want to be as concise and precise as possible. Make sure you add all the specific details.

Any time you complete a review always get the complete address of the place you are reviewing because this helps anyone that’s evaluating the product and service pinpoint the exact location you are speaking of.

4. http://www.blogger.com/

You can set up your own blog and start making money. You can get the whole thing set up in about 3 to 5 minutes, no joke. Just do the following and you are on your way: a. Go to http://www.blogger.com/ and then the system will ask you for a blog title and then a blog address or URL. Searching for a URL that is not taken is probably the only delay you will run into.
b. When you enter the URL you would like you then click on the availability hyperlink and the system will either say that URL is available or it's taken in which case you have to try to find another one which has not been selected yet. There will be a little security coded lettering you have to enter and then click on the continue key.

c. Now it's time to chose the template you desire for your blog. It gives you several designs to select from. Don't worry if you change your mind about a particular template because you can always go back and change it later even after you have posted some content. You can even change it right then if you like.

d. After you select your template you are up and running and ready to go with your first post. There are a lot of features and extras that can be added to your blog. For example Google adsense. These are ads place on your blog by Google which are consistent with the material you have written in your blog.

If you write about setting and achieving goals your ads from Google will be about goals and so on and so forth. Also do not click on your own ads or Google will kick you out of the program. This is how you make money when other people visit your blog and click on your ads. Again please do not click on your own ads because Google will know and you will be banned from participating.

You may want to let others know that use your computer. In order for you to see all the features that can be added go to the blogger logo in the upper left hand corner and click on it. Now click on Layout and then click on, "Add a page element and this will show every feature that can be added.

Some are summarized below. Feature. Newsreel=> this feature give you an option to add newsreel or current headlines from Google to your blog. List ==> You can add you favorite list of books, movies, or anything you like. Picture==> You can add a picture Video Bar==> clips from youtube and google can be added.
