Do you hate commuting to work? Get annoyed with your coworkers? Tired of the office politics and drama? Just plain ol’ don’t wanna work anymore?
For years I dreamt of working remotely and making money online but did do anything about it until I changed my mindset, made a plan and started taking action to make it a reality.
In my quest to work remotely, I’ve found these 9 Ways to Make Money online for free. The best part is that most of these can grow to become a full-time income!
One of the best ways to make money online is by having a blog, building an audience and selling your products or affiliate products to your loyal following. This is no easy feat, and success doesn’t come overnight. Trust me, I had this blog for years before actually committing to it and making it what it is today. Actually starting the blog on WordPress as an absolute beginner was difficult and I’ve outlined exactly how to start your blog in this step by step tutorial.
This is an online teaching platform where you teach English to children ages 5-12 in China. The requirements are:
- You must be an American/ Canadian citizen
- You must have a university degree
- You must have some experience working with children
That’s it! When I travelled for over a year, I used VIPKID to make some extra money. You get paid pretty well – up to $22 USD per hour! I’ve written a few blog posts about VIPKID here. If you have any additional questions about it, feel free to email me [email protected] 🙂

How exactly does it work? Sign into the Ebates site, find the store you want to purchase from and EBates will redirect you to that site.

4. Answer Surveys online!
This is one that many people overlook because
- Surveys, really?
- Thinking that you won’t get paid enough to make it worth your time
However, if you want to earn money online, by doing THE LEAST amount of work as possible, answering surveys is the answer. You’re literally getting paid for your opinion– no research, no creating content, no editing, nothing else required.
Swagbucks,Survey Junkies,Inbox Dollars (Get $5 for free just for signing up) and Daily Rewards (Get $5 for free just for signing up) are tops sites that will pay you good money just to do surveys! I recommend signing up for all of them because the more you do, the more money you’ll make!!
5. Become an online freelancer on Fiverr and UpWork
You can earn up to $100 for signing up on Fivrr. You can find work in Graphic design, Digital Marketing, Writing, Translation, Music and more!
Another great site for freelance work is UpWork.com. You can set your hourly rate and find work in a variety of positions including Virtual Assistant, Writer, Admin, Editor and more! Once you build a reputation, getting work is easy!
6. Become a user tester through UserTesting
It’s a great way to try out websites and give your opinion on new products or services. Based on your demographic, you qualify for certain tests and once your test is complete you earn between $10-$20. You may not qualify for every test, but this is a great way to earn a few extra bucks a month.
7. Sell your unused stuff online
Use eBay, Craigslist, and Facebook! In Canada, you can use Kijiji, LetGo app and Facebook! There are many “buy and sell” Facebook groups all over the world. It’s a quick and easy way to connect with a local and make money on all your unused items! Just ensure to be smart, safe and cautious when meeting the person. Declutter, make money, feel better – it’s a win win win.
8. Write an e-book.
This one takes a little more effort, but you can do it. If you have a blog, you can write an ebook going into more detail on your subject. Think about your passions, and what you could write about and get started! There are tons of online resources to help you. This book: 2K to 10K: Writing Faster, Writing Better and Writing More of what you Love helped me to really find my mojo for this blog.
You can make a few hundred to a few extra thousand a month by hosting on Airbnb. If the thought of sharing your space isn’t your thing, I totally understand that but it really is a great way to earn some extra cash.
