Making money online can be a hard task if you don’t do it well. There are several hundreds of sites willing to show you how to make money at home for a fee!

Check out our Money tips to help you make money online from your home!

NEVER PAY FOR ANYTHING – Never give any money to anyone to join anything. Serious companies that offer online jobs shouldn’t be asking for money before they recruit you. Neither should you be spending your hard-earned money to buy books with titles like “get rich quick”, “becoming rich online”, “make money”, “free money” or any other similar topics. You can get all the information you need for free on sites like this and thousands of others. Also, forget pyramid schemes and programs which claim that you can invest a dollar and get five thousand back; they are scams and they just don’t work. Finally remember that there is no such thing as free money. Be realistic, nobody is going to give you money for free!

RESEARCH THE OWNER – Before you join any scheme or any program that is offering you any revenue, research the owner well. Check where the site is hosted and if something looks funny DO NOT join. To check whois details for the owner, put in the domain name (eg, etc, without ‘www.’) in the text box on SpamHelp and choose Whois (Domain). You can also visit the Get Paid Forum and ask for advice or the Get Paid Boycott which lists all the scam sites.

DISAPPEARING ACT – Many sites disappear overnight. Don’t be surprised if you invest or join something and the owners vanish off the face of Earth. Always be cautious. If you are really sure that you want to invest money, never invest or rather gamble more then you can afford to lose.

PROTECT YOUR PASSWORDS – Keep your payment passwords safe and never use credit cards for “ID or age verification”. There are many unscrupulous people waiting to find ways to get hold of your money.

REPORT SCAMS – If you have been scammed, dont be afraid to report it. Remember that reporting a scam site will help shut it down, before more damage is caused. Don’t let scammers get away with your money. Check out our Scams section which will point you to the right authorities.

ELECTRONIC PAYMENT SYSTEMS – Don’t mix your personal money with money you make off the internet. Open a free international e-gold account and always request payment by it. E-gold can always be transferred online and changed into your own currency. Alternatively, one can always use PayPal, or Moneybookers. More information about this in the FAQ and e-money pages.

PROTECT YOUR COMPUTER – Install a firewall, antivirus and popup blocker and update them frequently. We use the Google tool bar to block popups and trust us, nothing goes past it. Also make sure to download spyware and adware removers. It is impressive how much malware and other unwanted stuff gets installed on your computer without you knowing after just a few hours of browsing. Download free software from our software section

AVOID SEX SITES – Avoid entering any sex and/or pornographic sites since many of these are more likely to contain spyware, advertisments and popups.

GET A NEW EMAIL ADDRESS – Never give your personal email address. Always open a new one so you don’t get your personal mails mixed up with your business ones. Furthermore, should you receive any spam it will be easier to get rid of and your personal email remains clean. Never respond to spam since this only confirms that the email is actually being viewed. Actually, don’t even open a message that appears to be spam. Some spam can come with a built-in code that will notify the sender that your address is legitimate if you just open the message. This will obviously result in more spam!

READ THE SMALL PRINT – Whenever you decide to use almost any online service, the first thing you get asked for is your email address. This is normally quickly followed by a set of checkboxes: “Yes! Sign me up for our free weekly money making newsletter! … Yes! Please include me in your best products and services mailing list! …”. etc etc. Worst of all, these boxes are of course all checked by default, relying on the fact that many people send in the form without reading all the small black print and deselecting these Special Offers box-by-box. Beware, always read the small print and never join any mailing lists unless you intend to clean out your mailbox every few hours!

PROTECT YOUR EMAIL – Also do not post your email address in any public forum or site. There are harvesters which are sent to crawl websites and register anything that includes @, and the new intelligent ones even register “AT”. As you can imagine, the addresses registered are then sold off to people who will happily fill your mailbox! Check out our spam section for more information.

MAKE YOUR OWN WEBSITE – If you do join any money making scheme, incentive or affiliate program, try to make your own website to show your wares. Advertise your site to get traffic, and keep it as professional as possible to make sure your visitors return. Promote your site for free with the major search engines and directories to get good quality traffic. Visit the submit url section for a list of sites that submit your url for free.

JOIN AFFILIATE PROGRAMS – When you have made your own site, it might be a good idea to signup with some affiliate programs that will provide you with a large percentage of the sale that would be generated from your site by means of a uniquely coded text link or banner.

TAKE PAID SURVEYS – There are several companies that are ready to pay you for your opinion. Your opinion could be very valuable in market research and other business ventures. So check out our surveys section to start making money at home!

PAID TO SURF – Get paid to surf is a new money making idea that allows you to make money from just surfing the web. Read more about paid to surf!

PAID TO READ EMAIL – Like most other things in life, earning money should be a slow but sure process. Through the years we have found out that one of the best way to do that (besides affiliate program) is through getting paid email. We sign up for programs, they send us email, we click on it and get paid. More information about this in the FAQ and Paid Email page.
