This is a no-frills post. Below is an outline of all the online companies that have sent me a check or direct deposit this month only. This will most likely become a recurring theme on the site as I receive more checks and Joe adds his input as well.

1. Google Adsense – Adsense has consistently sent me the largest checks each month. They pay publishers (anyone who runs a blog or website) for advertising text or image ads. The publishers make money each time a visitor follows an advertisement. If you have a website or blog and you want to start making money online, Adsense is the way to go.

2. Azoogle Ads – Azoogle Ads is an affiliate based program. In short, you refer people to products or programs and receive commission if they sign up or make a purchase. Their support team is excellent and their payouts are always on time. There is one major drawback though. You need a website or blog to advertise their programs.
Sign up for Azoogle Ads.

3. Commission Junction – By far, this is my favorite program to work with. Like Azoogle, they are an affiliate program where you make money through commissions. Through CJ, you can find a partner for any niche. Their vast library of advertisers is unreal. If you own a website and aren’t signed up for Commission Junction, you’re truly missing out.
Sign up for Commission Junction.

4. Survey Savvy – If you’re looking to make money doing online surveys, you need to be a member of Survey Savvy. For almost a year now, I’ve received checks on a weekly basis in the high $xx range. It also helps that I have almost 2000 referrals.
Sign up for Survey Savvy.

These are the four programs that I’ve received money from for this month. As I expand my options and we test more programs, the list will grow. Feel free to ask any questions in the comments below, but I won’t give out specific earning numbers. Sorry!

There's only ONE program I really recommend. It helped me turn my 'hobby' into a $10,000+ per month money making machine. Click here for the exact formula I followed.

    I have replaced the income of my last job with what I make from Adsense, affiliate sales, and direct advertising sales. Making money from blogging is not easy but it can be done.

    Has anyone tried doing this one? It is a free e-book that claims you can earn $400/day if you so wish. I’ve done some research on Google and I find nothing but praise for it from the info I found, but I’m still sceptical-please inform you know anything about it.

    Hey there,
    Just thought i would include something here. I too am looking for a work from home job as i am currently caretaker for my husband who is memory impaired.
    So, stumbled across an “About” page of a guy who had done some research into legit work from home jobs as well. He did recommend three places that he found ” a good percentage” of the jobs were legit. One of them was “” so i went there to check out the jobs. He did encourage anyone who ventured there to do their homework and using caution before trying anything.
    Well, i did check out one that simply said “Data Entry/Ad Typist at home”. Wrote an email inquiring about the job and here’s the response:

    From: “dashko d”

    Now, i did notice that there is no mention of the name of the company, no physical address, etc. But, since i’ve not be scammed before, i did send them the required amt. for said training material. So, time will tell whether or not i got scammed, but it wouldn’t surprise me if i did. I figured $5 wouldn’t make or break me so i gave it a shot.
    I returned to craigslist today to look again for the ad but it wasn’t there.
    That being said, it does pay to “do your homework” before trying ads. But, on craigslist, all you get is a number and no way of really checking them out first as far as i know.
    K, thanks for looking out for us…

    Hi all,
    thank God I found your site!
    I’ve been looking for a work at home business for several months, carefully weighing up the +ve’s and -ve’s of each site I’ve checked out.
    I was just about to sign up to when I found you! After spending some time here and reading about that site and many others, I have come to the conclusion that there just isn’t anything worthwhile online anymore. (I’ve worked Google Adsense for over a year and have a whole $7 to show for it!) Even Adsense and blogging have become so drenched with people doing it, that the money earned from them doesn’t justify the costs of using them anymore!
    Hey, if anyone knows of a legitimate work at home online business that isn’t going to ask me for $40+ to just get a useless and outdated list of companies, or ask me for $997 to join and then sell the same $997 (and let’s not forget the stupid fee of $49.95 per month for the ‘privilege’ of being a member) package to other users online, then please, feel free to email me – just don’t ask me to join YOUR company by paying YOU a fee!

    I would like your advice on this web site. It was on the top 10 list for making money online opportunities. I just reviewed it and need some direction.

    Making money through online programs isn’t for the feint at heart. It requires a lot of work and effort. It sounds like you would be better off finding a regular job. There isn’t a single program online that you can sign up for and make thousands of dollars for doing little or no work.

    Hi this is my first time answering a blog but I want to thank you about the tip you had on I was so close and my last thought was to come and check you out before I made my fatal mistake. I just really need some kind of at home work. I find myself jumping from fake site to fake site. If you could give me maybe a site that will provide me an at home job that would really help my family out. My mother has cancer and I have to be home to take care of her. I have just been traveling to odd jobs frome day to day and I need something a little more steady. I just dont trust anything online any more. I gotten burned too many times. Once again thanks.

  • Steve

    I can’t give you a definitive answer on how long it would take you to become a successful blogger. Everyone will have varying levels of success.

  • Linda

    Two questions:
    how much time can take for a Starter Blogger or Starter Webmaster to make 200 bucks a month?

    I have more than one friend that earn significan income from Adsense and affiliate programs like Ebay and Amazon. Something like u$s5000 a month.

    I always wanted to start a monetized blog (I have one in fact), how much time do you think it could take me?
