Top survey site review

I have been a member of Lightspeed survey panel for a number of months and have already started receiving cash payments for taking surveys.

There are a number of programs around at the moment who claim to send you surveys that pay but in actual fact, only send you links to other offers. Lightspeed is a genuine market research site that really pays you. As I said, I have already been paid, directly to my Paypal account.

The company emails me fairly regularly with links to surveys and gives cash rewards for completing them. The minimum for a payout is only $10 and the pay is very reasonable in relation to the time you spend.

In Australia, Lightspeed is now known as MySurvey.
If you are outside Australia, try the following link:

Job opportunity - work online as a sales rep

If you are serious about making a living online but don't have start up cash or a product to sell, promoting someone else's products can be quite lucrative. The following link will get you started working with a company and a program I can sincerely recommend.

This is a product that is easy to sell because of it's quality, huge marketing potential and all the promotional resources you could need, which are handed to you on a platter. It costs you nothing and signing up is as easy as falling off a log. You will get all the training and resources necessary to successfully promote the product online - or offline if you choose - and earn your commissions. If you have no sales or marketing experience, I'm confident anyone can learn fairly quickly and hey, you gotta start somewhere, it might as well be with a program that provides free training.

Being a sales rep is a legitimate role in the online community just as it is in the 'real world'.  It is a job, not a hobby or scheme and will require a bit of know-how, work, time and commitment. But as far as jobs go, there is so much flexibility here and unlimited potential to make money, please make the most of it.

Click here to visit the company,

My first survey site recommendation

I have been a member of GlobalTestMarket Surveys for a short time and so far I'm very impressed with this site. Signing up is very simple and it is recommended that you fill out your profile so that appropriate surveys can be targeted to you. You will be sent email notifications when new Paid Surveys are available.

As you accumulate Market Points, don't be discouraged if it seems like you don't have many. The points in this program are worth 5c each - in most programs like this one, points are only worth 1c. The cashout minimum is $50 and all payments to you will be made by check. Participants are also entered into daily ($300) and monthly ($5000) sweepstakes by taking surveys.

GlobalTestMarket Surveys offer membership to people from countries all over the world, including Australia I am happy to say. This a well-established and legitimate site. Joining is free so sign up now.

Fun ways to earn some cash

Here is another legitimate program which rewards you in cash for participating in a variety of ways. SnapDollars offers rewards for reading email, playing sweeps and games, completing surveys and offers, referring friends and shopping with partners.

All participation is optional so you can choose to do only the activities you really enjoy or make the most of every single offer, it's up to you. Signing up is free, safe and easy. Simply click the banner displayed above or click here to submit your details.

The majority of offers at SnapDollars are free and usually involve interacting with the site or signing up with partners. To gain higher rewards, you can choose to spend some money on products and services on the site that interest you. SnapDollars also offers you $5 for the friends you refer.

I enjoy this site, they are certainly competitive in terms of the rewards offered and the variety of ways you can earn them. The 'cash out' minimum is $50 so it is most important to persevere and visit regularly so you can claim your earnings.

Signup at SnapDollars now to start making an income online!

Make money reading articles

I am very interested in Readbud at the moment.  It is a relatively new site that offers to pay members to read and rate articles. 
Members must accumulate $50 before they are paid through Paypal

It is quite simple and free to become a member.  There's really nothing to it: you register, nominate the categories you are interested in, then read, rate, repeat.  Given that I enjoy reading articles anyway, it is nice to be paid to do it! Click the banner at the end of this article to join now.

Readbud offers several articles each day for members to read and then rate from one to five stars.  So far, I have I been credited with between 4c and 10c for each article I have read.  It is best to log in at least once a day to check for new articles available. Until I reached the $30 mark, I was accumulating around $1 each day. Perhaps it is a tactic to discourage members from cashing out, but after I reached $30 I found that there were suddenly less articles available for me. But I don't see a reason to be discouraged by this, earning a few cents here and there for reading a few articles each day eventually adds up.  Overall, this is a good program with reasonable rewards.

For those looking for opportunities to work from home and make money online or simply earn extra income part-time, Readbud has an affiliate program which I will also talk more about in future posts.

I believe this site to be well worth signing up for.

Sell your images, video and audio

Most of us these days have a digital camera and literally hundreds or thousands of images and video snippets stored on our computers. Why not turn all those photos into some extra cash for yourself?

Many businesses, both on and off-line, require images, video and audio for their promotional materials. Due to copyright law, they must pay for the right to use these.

There are now a number of stock photography sites online that will accept your contributions and then pay you when somebody decides to use your image. You don't have to be a professional photographer and there is no end to the types of images that are in demand.

Visit the following sites to learn more and start uploading!

  • dreamstime accepts photography, illustrations and vectors.
  • fotolia accepts photos, illustrations, vectors and videos.
  • Shutterstock accepts photos, illustrations, vectors and video footage.
  • iStockphoto accepts, photos, illustrations, flash, video and audio.
  • fotegrafik accepts images for stock photography

Get $10 just to register.

This is an example of how you can make relatively passive income online. By this I mean, you set up a free account, refer friends and then do very little else except receive your regular payments. Similar to some of my previous recommendations, this program pays you a share of their advertizing revenue in return for your interaction with the site.

GeoString is an online marketing company. Our sponsors pay us to put their message in front our members. In turn, we pay you for becoming an opt in member of our program. The advertising revenues from our sponsors make it possible to pay our membership base for doing nothing more than creating a free account, referring others, and opening the once weekly email from our company.
You need to be over 16 to register. Otherwise, anyone can join for free and you get $10 credited to your account straight away. This is a very straight forward concept, with not much work involved. It's awesome if you have a lot of friends to refer.

Win Cash & Prizes (Australian)

You gotta be in it to win it! Many of us fantasize about winning cash and prizes but if we never enter, we'll never win. Your budget may not justify buying lotto or sweepstakes tickets, or perhaps you feel that gambling is wasteful. Remember that it's still worthwhile to keep your eye out for promotions that cost nothing to enter.

My recommendation today for Australians who love winning is to sign up at the following site: click here

Search&Win regularly gives away cash and prizes and you participate absolutely free. Their current prizes include cash, holidays, electronics and vouchers.

There are 3 ways to get entries into the prize draws. You can use the site's search box to search for anything on the web. For the first 5 times each day you use the search box, you are elegible to win an instant prize. I have this site set as my home page to keep it handy for any time I may wish to conduct a search. Secondly, click on links in the promotional emails you receive and be rewarded with entries into the grand prize draw. And third, get even more entries for inviting friends. Plus, whenever your friends win, you win too.

Elegibility requirements: you must be an Australian resident, over the age of 13.

So here is that link again: Search&Win
They are a reliable and legitimate site and it's extremely simple. So give yourself a chance to be one of the winners!

Get Your Hands on an easy $300+

Follow these simple steps to make a cool $300 the easy way. 

Essentially, all you need to do is sign up (totally FREE) to these recommended programs, then open the links in the emails they send you each day.  Before you know it, they'll send you cash straight to your paypal account.  There are six programs here and each one awards you with $25 just for signing up - so there's the first $150 virtually in your pocket already. 

The only catch is, you need $50 accumulated in each account before you can cash out, but getting that is easy.  They send you emails every day with a few links that you click to open, then you will be credited with up to 50c for each one.  As far as Paid to Click programs go, that's a HUGE pay rate and if you do them routinely every day, it all adds up quickly. I figure, it takes 20 mintues a day (at most) for around 30 days - that's 600 mintues or 10 hours - and you get $300 at the end. So you're effectively earning $30 an hour just for clicking things. I do it in my pajamas with my morning coffee.

Of course, you could sign up to just one of these, but why stop at $50 when you could utilize all 6 and get $300 out of it?  If you visit your email inbox every day already, this is absolutely for you!  It takes probably 10 or 15 minutes of your time each day to open the mail and click on the links.  Your profit is a share of advertising revenue - this is a legit practice that is very widely used online these days.  These particular programs are by far the best and most worthwhile I have ever come across.  If you are looking for ways to make a bit of extra cash online working from home, you would be crazy to ignore this.

What you need to do, step by step:
  • Visit the first link I have provided below, click JOIN NOW and fill in the short sign-up form.  Take care to check the box that says you want the $25 sign-up bonus.
  • You will be directed to a page that asks you to fill out an offer.  You DON'T have to fill out any of the offers unless, of course, there's something there that interests you. You can close this page.
  • A confirmation email will be sent to you.  Go to your email account, find the email (check your junk folder if you can't see it) and click the link provided within the email to verify your membership.
  • You will be directed back to the offers page.  Once again you DO NOT have to participate in any offers if you don't want to. You can close this page.
  • If you check you email again, there should now be a second email confirming your login details, including your password. Follow the simple instructions in the email.
  • Sign into your new account and click 'Earnings' on the side menu. You will need to enter a Paypal address for you earnings to be sent. If you don't have Paypal, there will be a link to sign up - you can do this step later if you prefer.
  • The site will begin sending you regular emails with the paid links I mentioned. Each day, check your emails and click on the paid links they send you.
  • Repeat this process with each of the other 5 links I have provided below.
Here are the 6 links: Remember to make sure you tick the box offering you $25 before you submit each form.
All done?  You will now have $150 of your free money already!  Just make sure you stick with it so you can cash out - it's so easy, you'd be a fool to let this slide.  And of course, you can make much more than the initial $300 if you keep going after your first payouts.  Each site has loads of valuable stuff like offers, competitions, paid surveys, freebies and bonuses for referring your friends.

How do I find real opportunities make money online?

I'm sure there are many like me who wouldn't mind making some extra cash in the comfort of our own homes, perhaps even while watching TV or in spare moments between chores.  I have discovered it is entirely possible and I'm about to share my findings.  My future blog posts will provide information about specific opportunities to earn cash and win prizes online by investing some of your time but absolutely no money.

There are certainly many scams to avoid and it is important to be wary of offers which seem too good to be true.  If you are ever asked to pay money before you fully understand what you're getting, don't pay.  Having said that, there are also some genuine and worthwhile opportunities on the internet to make extra money.  Just about anyone with a computer, internet access and the basic ability to use them can perform the tasks necessary.  There are no special skills or other requirements needed.

If you've ever tried to find good offers of this kind, you may have given up, realizing it's not worth the time and energy it takes to track down a decent offer amongst all the scams and time-wasters.  There are sadly too many 'make-money-from-home' offers that are trying to extort money from you or at best, are simply worthless.  For anyone who doesn't like wasting time and money, it can be frustrating trying to sift out the good ones.

The bottom line is: making money via the internet is entirely possible if you are prepared to spend time doing it every day.  The trick is to find reliable information about which offers to accept and how to make the most of them. And that's exactly what I'm offering.

I will be posting regularly about making money from home via the internet, with instructions and links for worthwhile programs and lists of those to avoid.  I like to do my homework and I have personally spent over 12 months researching hundreds of offers.  Now I want to use what I know to save others all the time and trouble I went through.  I will use this blog for the purpose of sharing my experiences with various programs and strategies. I will review and critique each program and explain the positives, drawbacks, requiremnents, difficulty, time involved and rewards offered.

Most of the offers and programs I discuss will be available internationally, but because I am in Australia I can only review offers that are available to me so my recommendations will sometimes be specific to Australians.  It is usually even harder for those of us living in Australia to find decent offers to make an income online so this information will be extra helpful for other Aussies, but also relevant to readers from most english-speaking countries.

I also have some experience with more complicated business strategies which can generate an online income but will require an investment and/or special skills.  These processes are multi-faceted and include forms of marketing, retail selling and trading.  All of these methods can be set up using the internet and only need a minimum financial investment, as much or as little as you choose.

Use the search function to research an offer you have heard about and find reviews.
