7 Legitimate Ways That I Have Actually Made Money Online

Who wouldn’t like to make a little bit of extra money on the side? Remote income is still a form of active income, it still needs a little bit of work put into it, and it does take a little bit of time, but it is so worth it in the long run! You might not necessarily get rich quick, but if you set up a few different income streams (whether active or passive), it can definitely add up and all make a difference over time. Passive income is different from active income, but there can also be remote passive income. This concise list will focus more on active remote income (except for YouTube, which is sort of a combination of active and passive).

1: eBay.

I have been selling on eBay since I was a teenager. I’m not exactly sure of the amount that I’ve made (probably around $90 – $100?), because I haven’t sold as many items on there as I probably could have been selling. But this is definitely one that works. I’ve also “sold” a lot of my stuff on Listia, but that’s for Listia credits, not actual cash.

2: Fiverr.

When I was younger, I did some writing gigs through Fiverr that I actually got paid for. I think that I made about $8 – $12 with them (because you don’t actually get a full $5). Nowadays, it seems a bit more complicated for me to actually get gigs.

3: Channel Pages.

Channel Pages (through Fan Bridge) is a community for YouTubers that brings them together for collaborations, etc. I was paid $10 in the form of an Amazon gift card to participate in a webcam interview / survey with Lelio of Channel Pages.

4: Ebates / Rakuten.

I already do prefer to shop a lot online, and I have made around $40.00 with Ebates (now called owned by and called Rakuten). Be aware that there are different percentages for different categories depending on which stores you purchase from. I personally mostly purchase from eBay and Amazon. Amazon, itself, only gives cashback for a few select categories.

5: YouTube.

Now, my channel is no longer monetized, because I quit my previous MCN partnership for valid reasons, but I made about $100 over the course of the partnership (which could have been more if I had been consistently updating and promoting, but life and plateaus happen).

6: InboxDollars.

I have made about $57.00 with InboxDollars. I have received $40.05 from them so far, and I am still working on building up to the next payment threshold. I have a guide to making money with InboxDollars on my old weblog, so I will link it here. They have actually changed quite a bit since I first joined when I was a teenager.

7: SwagBucks.

I actually also started using SwagBucks as a teenager, too, and I kind of abandoned it for a while. Not that long ago, I picked it up again and still had all of my old credits and earned some more, and I was able to get a $5 Amazon gift card (which still really helps in the course of trying to save and make money).

Thank you so much. May God bless you.
