Advertising on the Internet is the only way of truly making a income from home, and pretty much all the other ways of making money are scams, lies, or a way to make money of you.  For example, a survey site like Treasure Trooper, which is a pretty good survey site, is making a lot of money for every offer you complete.  Generally, a simple email submit which would pay you .30 cents pays them 1.30.  Wouldn't you rather have the $1.50?  The thing that is actually killer is that every survey site is actually a member of an Affiliate Network!  It is how they find offers to advertise!

In fact, most of the internet is just people making money.  Every search for a product review and find a site that praises how good a product is and then links to Amazon?  Ever click on an ad that takes you to a place to submit your email?  Ever see the annoying I-Pad "you won" pop up ad?  All those websites are made by average guys like you and me, and its the closest you can get to the top of the totem pole without some extremely creative ideas.

What PeerFly does is actually quite simple.  They have a list of offers like free $1,000 dollar gift cards, free I-pad, etc.  There is actually quite a few, and they let you advertise them.   It becomes your job to make ads, find places to advertise, and to get people to complete the offer.  This is simply the BEST way to make money on the internet, but it is not for everyone.

When signing up with PeerFly, you have to do a lot of things.  They have a pretty long sign up process, and it can take 2-3 weeks to get approved.  You will have to send them a photo or scan of your drivers license and your social security number for tax purposes.  The reason for this is because most people who start making money will be making a LOT of money.  Since Peerfly is a legit company, you will have to pay taxes on your income.

Are you still interested in gaining a real extra or even primary income on the internet?  Do you want to eventually quit your job and stay home with you kids.  Well, the only way to make that kid of money is to become a Internet Marketer, otherwise stick with the survey sites.  To get started follow these steps:

Get Started With PeerFly
  • Go to Peerfly

Telemarketers - Oh My

I decided to check my Google Voice number that I long disconnected from my cell phone, and the number of telemarketers that call it is just amazing.  This is why it is important to keep your cell phone numbers hidden from everything and everyone.  Google Voice is free and an excellent service that acts as a firewall between you and telemarketers.  Instead of providing your real phone number, all you do is provide your Google Voice Number.  This is a great alternative for people who enter sweepstakes/

Occasionally, companies notify the winners by a phone call.  This makes it important to receive phone calls, but also weed out the telemarketer ones. Once you identify a telemarketer number it is pretty easy to block that number in Google Voice.

Long story short, though, here is the list of all the telemarketers that called my Google Voice number since I started using it a few months ago:

Phone Calls

18187556800 - Multiple times during what would be my night - SPANISH SPEAKING
19092595672 - Called 10 times in the span of 2 hours.... - Appears to be from Education Connection.
19173985568 - Multiple Times
19739293293 - Vonage Telemarketer

This would be so annoying getting all this stuff on my cell-phone, but thankfully I use Google Voice.  All my telemarketers get to hear is a voice mail recording of Mental Health Hot Line

End of the Month Earnings!

One of the best ways to keep yourself from getting discuraged is to total up all the money you made this month.  This is especially important when you are dealing with income that is basically just trickling in. This month has been a pretty good month for me.  I made enough money to hit the goal I set for myself!

TreasureTrooper - 55 dollars
I worked on treasuretrooper for 7 days in the begining of the month for about a hour or two a night.  This means I could have easily hit 200 dollars if I just stick with it.  I'll admit this was clearly a case of the grass is greener on the other side, and I ended up doing other things that did not really pay off.

MySurvey - 50 dollars
I always do all the surveys available to me here.  They always credit and are the least annoying I have ever found.

Cada Cabeza - 20 bucks
I completed the survey in late Aug, but I recieved the check mid september.

This was a great month for me on my sweepstakes! I won a total of two 25 dollar gift cards, a arby's 25 gift card, fishing line worth 25 dollars, and a tums T-shirt worth 5 bucks.  This made a total of 105 dollars!

I made a total of .05 cents off of referals from this site, and another 2 dollars from ads on another site I run. 

This was a pretty good haul, $237.05 dollars.  The thing is this could have been a lot more.  I just wasted a lot of time advertising this website and working on a few other ideas I had that did not quite work out.  I realistically could have made ~$400 dollars and if everything was ideal I could have been looking at upwards of $500 dollars.

This is all income anyone could have made.  This did not require any special skills, scamming, spamming, recruiting, anything.  Just entering a couple of sweepstakes and doing a few surveys.  Do not get discuraged! Stick with it, and enjoy the rewards at the end of the month.

20 Buck Check in The Mail from Cada Cabeza

20 minutes, 20 buck check, easiest money ever.
I was really skeptical about this one, and I was almost 95% sure this was a scam.  I heard about this site that offers 20 bucks for Hispanics that join the survey site, and the scam alarm went off in my head.  Needles to say, it was the quickest 20 bucks I have ever made.  It took all of 20 minutes to do 10 1-2 page intro surveys, and earn the 1,000 points needed to cash out.

This is really easy to do just click the banner above or this link. Once you sign up, with legit information (kinda hard to cash a check in someone else name), all you have to do is click on control panel - my first surveys. Once there you take the 9-10 simple surveys that are about 1-2 pages long each.  Once you reach 1000 points, click on control panel, trade your points, and 3-4 weeks later you will have a 20 dollar check in the mail.

Intended for Hispanics, but everything is in English (or has options to switch to English).
You do NOT have to verify your Hispanic background.

This site does have some draw backs.  It does not offer that many surveys after the original first surveys.  It took about a week to receive another survey offer from them, which will make it really hard to reach cash out again.  You still make 20 bucks really fast, and who couldn't use a free tank of gas or free dinner?

Freelancer and Freemarket are pretty amazing site, but not everyone knows about them.  These are NOT survey sites, and really do belong in a blog of their own, but  I figured I would give them a brief mention here.  A lot of people might come to this blog looking for skilled work, and that is exactly what these sites are.

They are a place where people buy and sell digital skilled labor, and everything has a place and price.  People look for templates for websites, or even have content and articles for websites written for them. I go into greater detail on their dedicated page, but here is a quick break down of the two sites

This is a reverse auction site where you can either post or bid on jobs.  Then you complete them to the persons specifications.  Jobs include everything from writing articles, designing websites, graphic design, and everything in between.

 This is where you can sell or buy pre-made digital goods.  This includes everything from articles about specific topics, fonts, websites, graphics, and everything else you could possibly want.

Make Them Want You

This is an excerpt from the tips and tricks page on this site, but I think it was funny enough to give its own little shout out here.  Prepare to be mildly entertained!

Want: Make Them Want You
It is important to make the surveyor to want to survey you.  Honestly, everyone knows they are a bit annoying, but it is important to make it appear you want to be there.  Completing the survey completely is the only way to get credit, and we want credit. Just follow these simple steps: 

1.) Figure out what the survey is trying to sell you, err ask about! If it is about phones, then maybe you will be in the market for cell phones soon.  The same goes for cars, groceries, etc.
2.) Primary/Only decision maker! Only choice as far as your concerned, why would you advertise to someone who doesn't even make decisions!
3.) Middle Class (Money Wise) - Only real choice.  No point advertising to someone who can not afford the product!
4.) No, you have not been survied about (insert product) before in the last 3 months.
5.) Yes, I'm easily convicable!
6.) I'm always willing to try new things and switch products!
7.) I tell my friends about everything!

Google Voice - Thank You

A little cautionary tale for all of you out there trying to make some extra money on the internet.  Remember to do everything possible to stay safe out there.  I could have had my cell phone number of almost 8 years ruined, if I was not using Google Voice.

I've had a Google Voice number for months while now, and I finally signed up for something that gave telemarketers/scamers my Google Voice number.  Last morning, I received a phone call from 18775026442 and a few hours later they called again.  A few hours later 12014719853 calls me twice over a 2-4 hour period, and finally 18082032779 calls me over a 2-4 hour period.  I have a feeling this is just the start...

I naturally look up all these numbers, and it appears they are trying to scam or sell you something like a gift card for 1 dollar... Yeah, right.  Thankfully, I had my actual number was cut off from them.  I had google voice call my cell phone 3 times before I disconnected it, now it goes straight to voice mail.  The only thing left is leaving a interesting voice mail about something.  Any Ideas?
