Making money on the internet is not as easy as you might be thinking. If you have your regular job and happy with it that’s ok. If you want to make some extra cash and I will show you several methods.




Make money by clicking ads through PTC sites (paid to click opportunity)

It’s true that you can make money by clicking ads, but the truth is that you can earn on average $0.0005 per click. The only way to make some decent cash is click a lot of ads.

Once you get your affiliate link you can promote your ad throughout the internet in order to get clicks. It’s not easy at all. The other way you can click ads inside the members area of the program you join and earn some money.

As you can see, this opportunity doesn’t require any investment, but the opportunity itself is very limited and you can hardly replace your job by clicking ads.

There are many scams among PTC sites and the main problem is that they don’t pay you for clicking ads. But there are still some legit programs like or or These three are legit.



Paid surveys and more

You can also make money by taking online surveys, watching video, completing short tasks, playing games, reading emails, doing search on the internet etc. First off, you should know that you can join such sites for free.

If you come across a program that promises you to reveal a special list of high paying programs it’s not true. There is no need to pay for this info. Like with PTC sites, you can’t make a solid income by taking online surveys or watching videos.

This opportunity is good only for making some extra cash. Anyway this is what allows you to make money without investing your money. You can also earn money for sending people to these sites.

Here is a list of several sites:

Promoting CPA offers

CPA (Cost Per Action) is one of best and most profitable ways to make money without investing any money. You don’t actually sell anything.

You promote free offers, such as playing games, finding a job, getting gift cards, literally everything. Before that you need to create your free account at CPA networks, such as:

After creating your account you start to browse their free offers and promote them. Once any of your visitors completes an action, which can be submitting an email, completing a short task, playing a game, taking online survey etc, you get paid by CPA network.

You can promote these free offers either through paid traffic or using free methods, such as social media, search engine optimization, email marketing. The last three methods don’t require monetary investment.



Google Adsense

Google Adsense is a very popular program to make money without investing your own money. All you need to start making money with it is have your own website.

Get paid for shopping

Yes, you heard that right. You can get paid for shopping online. For example, if you want to buy something online, let’s say from Amazon or Wallmart, you instead go to the site that is promoting both Amazon and Wallmart products and if you make a purchase from that site you will get between 2% – 15% cash back on any of your purchase.

These sites have been around for many years now and have a good reputation.

Virtual assistant jobs

Some companies can’t afford to pay for a permanent position and that’s why they are looking for virtual assistants that can handle various projects via internet.

Building your own online business for free

All opportunities mentioned above are a great way to make some extra cash online without huge investments, but my favourite way to make money is through building a business and becoming your own boss and be in full control of your very own business.

The program I’m talking about has a very good reputation and it has been known since 2005. The good news is that you can join this program for free. Yes, absolutely for free. No credit card, no investment required.

Once you’ve joined it, you can take the first 10 lessons of the official certification course that will allow you to understand how to make money online. All lessons are free and short.



Duration of each lesson is 10 minutes. You shouldn’t worry because the material is very simple and very well explained.

In case you have some questions, you can ask via live chat. There are always hundreds of members inside the community ready to help you.

You can also leave your question on my profile and I will be happy to help you out.

Also, you can use the search box to find an answer to any of your questions or find free lessons, both videos or text tutorials on any topic.




This search box works exactly as Google’s search box and if you are looking for the info related to internet marketing, making money online, social media, SEO etc., you can find tons of materials for free.

Also, you’ll get access to a website builder and build your very own two free websites and keep them as long as you want. With all this info and support you can build your very own lucrative business online and start making money without any investment.

But if you are serious about your online presence and want to achieve something big, you can upgrade your account and get access to all lessons and full 24/7 support. This will allow you to achieve your financial goals much faster and achieve greater results.

Not all, but many members start making thousands of dollars per month after completing a complete course inside the community. To make it possible you need to upgrade your account like I did.

But you don’t have to and in fact you can stay as a free member forever and continue without investing your money.

    Great recourse, you’ve added plenty here that I haven’t heard of, so I will have to take some time and go through this and give some of it a go. I will bookmark it for a time when I can go through it properly. One thing though – I’m pretty sure elance and odesk have now combined to become upwork! I actually like upwork and have used it a little bit for outsourcing. I haven’t tried testing out products before – which one would you recommend to try out first? Thanks!

    • Rufat says:

      Great! I’m glad you find my resource guide helpful. As you can see, there are tons of opportunities many of us haven’t heard of and many of them are completely free. Regarding Elance and Odesk, thank you for the correction. Like you I used Fiverr services which is pretty similar to Upwork. The good part of it is that you can provide your own services and make money too. Regarding testing products, all websites that I’ve listed here are reliable as I know and you can try any of them. And remember that they all are free to join. So, no risk from your side.

    Thank you for sharing as I was aware that there are legitimate ways of earning online without investing but I didn’t realize that there are so many ways.

    In all of my websites I earn with Google Adsense and I also am an avid promoter and in love with your final recommendation of Wealthy Affiliate.

    I found Wealthy Affiliate almost exactly 1 year ago, as a matter of fact it will be exactly 1 year in 2 weeks.

    I also love ebates as I shop as thrifty as possible when I can.

    Your site is full of unique and great advice and for that I thank you,


    • Rufat says:

      Yes, Tony, there are even more free ways to make money online. Like you, I’ making some money with Google adsense too on my other website. But the best part of my business is spreading the word about WA because it’s a genuine program and actually helped me start making money. In fact, anyone can start for free and see how it works for them and then if they like it they can upgrade their account or leave the program. I think it’s worth giving it a try.

  3. Ilias says:

    Hi Rufat, too many options there. Well, I am not interested in clicking ads or taking surveys but the most of the other ways sound really interesting. Do you think that I could try with more than one way or I should focus on one only? More specific I was thinking to build a website and selling services as a freelancer.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Ilias,

      I understand you Ilias and like you I’m not interested in clicking ads or taking surveys at all. It’s time consuming to be honest and in fact, you earn cents instead of dollars. I’m nota huge fan of this type of income. Other options mentioned here are interesting. I think you start first with the last option that I’ve mentioned at the end of my article. It’s a genuine way and you can build a serious online business over time. Regarding other options, you can choose any of them and give it a try if you need some quick cash. But I do recommend to focus on one genuine opportunity because it will allow you start for free without investing your money and then if you like it you can upgrade your free account and switch to a premium account that will give you way more options. Your freelance idea is great and think you can choose this direction as your main focus.
