Are you looking for genuine ways to earn money online?

If you don’t know where to start, I am here to help you.

We know that internet users have increased exponentially. Many are looking for some genuine ways to earn money online. I have explored many of these sites and I have listed below some genuine ways to earn money online.

There are affiliate links in this post, meaning I may make a small commission at no additional cost to you. For more information, see my affiliate disclosure policy.

1. Online Surveys/ PTC

PTC or Paid To Click is one of the easiest ways of earning money online. Though you just earn a very small income, it’s easy and free. You just have to click and view the ad for 30 seconds to earn money. There are many survey sites where you first sign up and earn money after completing the survey. In the survey, you’re generally asked to choose from the options provided and you just have to click on your choice. Though you may earn less between $1 to $25 per survey, it isn’t time-consuming. You can generally complete a survey in 20 minutes. All sites are free.

Some popular PTC/survey sites where you can sign up and start earning are:

  1. clixsense.com
  2. neobux.com
  3. swagbucks.com
  4. viewpointpanel.com
  5. inboxdollars.com

2. Freelancing       

Freelancing is one of the genuine ways to make money online. I worked as a freelancer on Fiverr and was able to earn $500 in my first month. You can read about it here below.


You can be a freelancer and earn money. You can do data entry or you can write content which is much in demand these days. You can write content for blogs and websites. You can do photo editing or make videos, create logos, or offer any service and earn money. As a freelancer, you can work from the comfort of your home and you’re not bound by schedules and you can choose the work you want to do.

Some popular sites where you can work as a freelancer are:

1. fiverr.com

2. upwork.com

3. freelancer.com

4. peopleperhour.com

5. guru.com

6. writeraccess.com


Blogging is a hot trend now. But making money through blogging is a slow, time-consuming process as you won’t get many readers at the start. You need time to gain more readers and then you can earn money by monetizing your blog by placing ads on your blog, or through affiliate marketing or selling digital products, etc. You can write blogs on any topic of your choice like health, business, sports, music, entertainment, finance, games, fashion, etc.

Some blogging platforms are:

wordpress.org (the most popular blogging platform)





4. YouTube

You can create videos and upload them on YouTube. When your YouTube channel gets many subscribers and a lot of views, you can get paid through ads on your videos. You can create games videos, tech videos, food recipe videos, how-to-learn-any skill videos, prank videos, fun videos. If your videos are educative, entertaining or informative, your videos will attract a lot of views and help you earn money.


5. Writing

When I explored the internet to find genuine ways to make money, writing was the first thing which helped me earn. I wrote ebooks and self-published on Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing. You too can publish your book on KDP. It’s free. You have to register and give details of your personal information and your bank account details, and if you have the content of your book ready, you can upload the content, you can add a book cover, title, description, category, pricing and publish your book. It’s fast and it’s free.

You can also become a freelance writer and earn money. You can find freelance writing jobs on these sites.

1. fiverr.com

2. upwork.com

3. freelancer.com

4. peopleperhour.com

5. guru.com

6. writeraccess.com

6. Create and sell an online course

There’s a growing market for online courses. More and more people are using digital platforms to learn skills. If you have a specific ability and love to teach, then you can create an online course and sell it and you get paid every time students buy your course on these sites.

  1. udemy.com
  2. teachable.com

  3. Great tips for making money online. I think YouTube is exploding. It’s already the second largest search engine after Google (that’s right, people search more stuff on YouTube than on Bing for example). I’ve also heard that it’s much easier to rank for keywords fast than in Google. Of course takes work just like everything else. My tip for anyone starting in online business is to pick a single proven method and stick with it until you see success, don’t try to do many things at a time until you have enough experience.

    • Yes, that’s a great point you made. About sticking to one method instead of trying many things at once. We tend to lose focus otherwise. Thanks for your comment.
