How to Make Money Online

OK, so you’re not going to get rich using any of these sites, but the trickle of virtual pennies you can earn will eventually turn into pounds. So, if you're willing to put in a little bit of time on a regular basis, you can build up a nice little pot of cash.

Get Paid For Your Internet Searches


You can earn money from your internet searches with Qmee. All you have to do is download an add-on for your internet browser, then search as normal on sites like Google, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo, Bing and Tesco. You’ll see some ads alongside your search results. The advertisers pay Qmee and when you click on any of the ads, you get a cut of that money. Payment for clicking on an ad is usually between 6-10p. The great thing about Qmee is that, unlike other such schemes, you don’t have to build up to a certain amount before you can get your hands on the cash. You can withdraw your earnings at any time.

Get Paid for Getting Emails

You probably don't like getting unwanted emails from people trying to sell you stuff. But maybe you wouldn't mind so much if you got paid for those emails. If you sign up at InboxPounds, that's exactly what you're letting yourself in for. As well as getting paid for receiving emails in your inbox, you can earn cash by taking surveys, doing searches and even playing games online. You can request a payment when you've earned £20. You can receive your payment as a cheque, Amazon gift card or pre-paid MasterCard.

Get Paid for Watching Videos

Swagbucks is a popular site with people who are serious about making money online. By signing up for the site you can earn points for watching videos, playing games, completing surveys and searching the web. Once you've built up enough points, you can exchange them for gift cards for Amazon, PayPal, John Lewis or Marks and Spencer.

Get CashBack Without Buying Anything

You probably already use Top CashBack to save money on pretty much everything that you buy online. Did you know that you can also use the site to get cash back without actually spending any money? No? Well, you might like to know that you can sometimes earn money just by getting quotes for insurance. Sometimes companies are interested in you as a future potential customer so they'll willingly pay for your interest in whatever they have to offer. It's obviously not a large amount, but it can add up to your cash back earnings from all your other online shopping.
