I’m currently working on a comprehensive guide regarding how to bring in some extra cash online. Right now there are a handful of sites that I use each month to generate between $300-$400 every month largely in my spare time. The guide is going to detail each company I use and will help you get on the path to earning as much as I do with each of them.

A lot of the companies have been featured here at I’ve Tried That, but I’ll be giving insider tips and information on how to make the most out of your membership and earn the most amount of cash. I will offer 100% concrete proof of my earnings to show you I’m not making this up either.

A lot of people scoff at the idea of making spare cash online, but an extra $300 per month is nothing to laugh at. That $300 could easily be your car payment & a few utility bills each month. With my guide, I plan on helping you achieve this level of success online.

What I want from you guys are suggestions for what you’d like to see in the book. So far I have detailed information about various websites that pay people to work online, proof that I’ve actually been paid, tips and secrets I’ve found throughout the years to earn the most money, and plenty of advice on how to make money online.

Is there anything else you’d like to see featured?

Now’s your chance to let me know before I wrap things up!

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 like Mechanical Turk. Make sure you mention the whole $10 minimum cash-out, and the troubles non-US workers face in getting paid.

    The survey sites are okay, but the few who pay in actual money don’t seem to need my particular demographic. Ever. Kind of depressing…

    Customer service/sales like WestOnline and Synovate would be all right, except a land line is an extra expense I personally just can’t absorb at the moment. That and if WestOnline is any relation to the West Telemarketing call center I used to work for, they’re kind of shady.

    More suggestions for no-cost opportunities would be great. Keep ’em coming!

    Hi Steve, i can’t wait for the arrival of your new guide.
    But isn’t there any other way to make an income at home,
    besides surveys, all of the ones i’ve tried want to much info.
    I mean my name,age home address, all of my interest,etc.
    But i’ve heard on Fraud TV, that a hacker needs nothing more,
    than a person first & last name to steal more from our identity.
    So i’m quite leary of doing anymore surveys online or by phone.
    So will your guide include other Free or low cost work @ home ideas?
    Oh also a “thank you” to everyone that has listed their “WAH’ links.

    Hi Steve! There’s a really great site called Fiverr that allows you to offers services online for $5. I joined the site in October and accumulate $212 just for selling ebooks and editing resumes during my spare time. A nother site that I highly recommend is Mylikes because they pay you to share links on Facebook and Twitter. You can earn anywhere fro .5-.50 everytime someone clicks on your shared links and they pay every friday at a minimum payout of only $2.00. http://mylikes.com/signup?token=carla_easley

    Thanks for all your helpful information. Can you include maybe a detailed timeline or at least an idea on how long it should take a person to get up to making 300.00 to 400.00 a month. I know everyone works at their own pace but just thinking about those that are doing this part time and have a full time job and aspiring to leave the full time job and maybe include your experience.

  • Stephen

    Never do the opportunities share with you the “hidden” costs with participating in these ventures such as web hosting, paypal, etc. These costs aren’t outrageous, and should be openly provided for interested potential participants so they can budget for them, and not be suddenly ambushed by numerous “little” costs thrust at them as requirements for success. A little more transparency would could certainly seperate the scams from the legitimate opportunities.

    A site that I use to make some extra money is http://www.slicethepie.com/
    They pay you to write short reviews of new music tracks. They don’t pay a lot, but they do pay.

    Hi Steve

    I am the look out for a online job, where I can make money hopefully without paying a fee to start, something other than writing articles as I just do not seem to be able to do this successfully. I also hate selling.

    The other thing would be nice to see something for International people (like myself) living down under

    Hi. I’m from the Philippines and I’m interested in working at home online. I’m looking forward for the release of your “New Guide to Making Money Online”. I just hope that you also include companies that admits international members like me since most money making programs online are only for those living in the U.S., Canada or Australia.

  • Ray

    Thanks for asking. Some folks might like info on how much out of pocket $$
    each one requires, if any to get started. Also if you could provide approx. amount of time /effort for each. Keep up the great work and thanks for your

    I am quite new to working from home so I am trying hard to at least make some actual income each month. What I would love to know is are there surveys that you do not have to sign up for something in order to complete and get paid on it? I don’t want to have to sign up for a bunch of things that if I forget to cancel in time than I will have to pay for. I appreciate your help….

    Having been through survey hell and heaven and an avid reader of your information I would strongly suggest a subpanel under American Consumer Opinion Panel. This panel is called Imaginators. It is usually by invitation only. However, you can get more info here: http://www.acop.com/creative/creativev2/
    In 2010 I participated in two online focus groups for them and one paid $200.00 and the other $250.00. Far and away the best site that I am affiliated with.

    I would also like to take the opportunity to tell other members that I have found the information on your site credible and have made money through information you have provided. Thank you and keep up the good work!

    Yup. I’m a huge fan of both of those sites. :)


    Thanks for the idea. It’s been added to my growing list of things to include. As for surveys, they’re usually completely anonymous. You show up in survey results as 34, male, Caucasian, Respondent #546 instead of Scott Smith from Smalltown, USA. They’re paying for your opinions, not your information.


  • Scott

    I know surveys are a big way for people to make extra money, but for me, they’re a little scary with all of the information you’re giving them, so I would skip them if it were me, but maybe others like them.

    The one thing it would be nice to see in your guide is a rating system on the amount of time or ease it is to do something. For example, doing a survey is easy, whereas freelancing is harder for some people. And sometimes it takes forever to fill out a survey, for maybe a $5 return on your money, whereas you can do something else that takes less time, and maybe you get a bigger return. Just thoughts and suggestions…

    Hi Steve,

    The 2 sites I like and use so far are:



    Both actually pay.

    Thanks for all you share.
