A few of you may remember our October 2006 post regarding the multiple ways of making money on the internet.
We’ve recently come across several more ways to make a little coin online. We’ve used the same rules as qualifiers that I will recap here:
What’s NOT included: Taking Surveys, Get Paid to Surf the Internet, MLM, Programs with a ton of negative user experiences (based on researching forums, googling them, etc.), Contest Sites, “Buy my DVD, CD, Audiobook”, etc.
What IS included: Things you can use to legitimately make money online. Everything from product reviews to writing code, creating videos.
So with that, here we go:
- ReviewMe – In order to participate, you must have a blog and it has to be active. Companies go to ReviewMe to advertise a product and ReviewMe asks their members to write a review of the product in exchange for cash.In regards to ethics, ReviewMe mandates that the blogger/site owner indicate that they are being compensated to write the review AND the advertiser cannot insist on a positive review. This is the opposite of other similar services that don’t mandate trustworthy behavior. Ultimately the goal is to spread the word honestly.You can expect to earn $20 – $200 per review that you write.
- Vizu – I really like the sound of this one and may try it on Dumb Little Man. Instead of putting ads on your site, you insert polls. You get paid based on the CPM (cost per thousand) that you set. The better positioning on your site, the better you will do. The nice part of this is that everything is embedded into your site allowing visitors to participate without leaving. That is key. PS – I learned about this site today from Digital Inspiration.
- Clickbooth – Clickbooth is a site that blog owners or site owners can join to place Cost Per Action ads on their site. It has a good base of advertisers and is similar to Commission Junction or Linkshare.
- Freelancer.com: This is well known freelancing website. Take on a project, get it done and get paid.
