Here is a list of fairly effective methods of earning money online…
Earn money selling photos: If you have a passion for photography, or you have had a chance to immortalize special moments or places, selling your photos online might be worth it. The quality required by various photographic databases is high, very high, so no selfies or photos of plane wings. The four most important databases are Fotolia, 123RF, Shutterstock and iStockPhoto.
Dazzle yourself with advertising bars: These are the well-known flashing bars that stay on your computer screen while you surf the net. After spending many hours in front of the monitor I was dreaming of them at night so I removed them. Your earnings will not even pay the electricity used, maybe you can earn a little bit by affiliating non-stop provided that you reach the thresholds, which are normally very high.

Racking your brain writing CAPTCHAs: A little known method, it involves resolving those images with unreadable text that are usually found at the bottom of a contact form. Earnings are in the order of a few cents per hour, if you do not make any mistakes, affiliating in countries where the hourly wage is low you could find someone who will solve it for you. In any case, you are helping these services to bypass anti-spam systems. (Further information)
“Trading” with forex: It would be a real job, that of a trader, but absolutely not to be tried at home, it is only for strong stomachs. I am not ruling out that someone actually got rich from this, but it is only a matter of statistical probability; it is a bit like a casino, even though almost everyone loses everything, someone has to win. Basically you bet your money on the buying and selling of currencies (€, $, £), running many risks. (Further information)
Gambling at online casinos: On the Internet you will find statistically foolproof strategies, but in reality they do not exist and the best way to earn money with gambling in general (lotteries, scratch cards, etc.) is not to play. Online casinos have the advantage of being very quick in the bets compared to the real world, losses are guaranteed at an increased speed, and we won’t even talk about if you connect up your credit card. The only working technique (not applicable online) is counting the cards at Black Jack, provided you manage to learn how to play it and they discover you using it, they will pay you well.
Earn with YouTube: By becoming a YouTube partner you can get paid for advertising that is displayed at the beginning of the video, about 1 euro per 1000 showings depending on the number of clicks it generates, two successful branches of video are comedy and instructional. In Italy, YouTubers who live off the earnings of publishing videos on YouTube can be counted on one hand and they are really good. Some use it as a springboard in order to get a television contract. You can also make videos to promote the sale of products that you already produce or info products. You can find various articles on the web about this, but supplementing your income with YouTube is by no means trivial. Inexplicably, videos of cats and animals doing entertaining things also have great success.
Earn money with a blog: The main limitation for us Italians is our language, which limits the audience to 35 million people online. If you speak English well you, could have a potential audience of 560 million people, much higher numbers regardless of the niche that you choose. The average Italian politician’s level of English is not sufficient, but you need to know English better, unless you decide take the comic route. The blog disguises it as well as the clicks that take you to the clients’ websites or the products that your sell. Writing interesting articles is not enough to get web hits; there is a series of web marketing techniques that you should know about. Periodically you have to write new articles, but all in all it is a job that will bring you some extra money only if done with dedication.
Change your life with one click: It is surely a rip-off and sooner or later you will be asked for your credit card information. Invest time in yourself instead as there are plenty of free language courses on the Internet; no one will ever ask you for money to go for a jog or do a set of push-ups. Although one might have a negative perception of the world as a result of the media masochism, in real life one is much more likely to meet good people than bad people, and as Murphy says: smile because tomorrow will be worse 🙂
Earn money by writing opinions: An alternative way to scrape up some pounds if you can write fairly well. The most common site is Ciao.co.uk, which rewards you based on the number of reviews you write and the number of people who read your review, but don’t be hasty (“OK, nice!” This is not a review). Focus on the details and you could really earn some pounds. You can review practically anything. You could start by writing a 5-star review of Surveyeah! 🙂
Earn money through surveys: One of the few truly effective methods of earning money online without having the talent of a stand-up comic or a programmer.
