30 Ways to Earn Money on the Internet in 2023
In recent years, more and more people are wondering how to make money on the internet. And look for tips everywhere (on google, Facebook…).
Some want to earn money online by working and others without spending it. Everything is possible, but under certain conditions!
First of all, know that there are no miracle methods. You cannot make a living on the internet without working. Most of the time, those who promise you methods to earn money quickly and without doing anything, do not know what they are talking about. Or often they want to sell you training to get a little more rich off your back. So pay attention!
Of course, there are tricks to earn easy money, but they are very rare. And often they are not disclosed, because if everyone did, it wouldn’t work anymore.
It is also possible to earn money on the internet without spending it, but generally the gains will be quite low compared to the time spent. Nevertheless, this can satisfy some people who do not have special skills or who do not want to take the lead to make additional income.
I’m sorry for all those who thought they would find a miracle way to make ends meet in this article. But I prefer to be honest and realistic. Now that we’ve gotten these false good ideas out of the way, we can start off on a good footing.

30 ways to make money online
To help you in your research, I have divided this article into 2 main parts. With for each of them 15 ways to earn money online, 30 in total:
*. How to earn money on the internet without spending it: in this 1st part, most of the ways to earn money are more related to additional income. But in some cases, these tricks can still make you pocket a lot of money.
*. Earning money on the internet by working: in this 2nd part, most of the ways to earn money are rather related to a “real job” and can help the most motivated to earn a living on the internet.
How to make money on the internet without spending it?
Since most people looking for ways to make money on the internet either don’t want to spend money or don’t want to work. This is the first part of this article.
Most of these ways to make money on the internet do not require any special skills. But can help you butter the spinach.
These cheats are more for people who don’t want to make a real job out of it. In most cases, you will not need to declare yourself and therefore create a micro-enterprise.
Keep in mind that if you start pocketing money regularly, you will have to think about declaring it for taxes.
1 – Network marketing (MLM)
Network marketing (also called MLM or Multi-Level Marketing) is most of the time related to an ancillary activity to make an additional salary. Note that this activity can also be carried out full-time, if it generates enough income.
Although most MLMs require an initial investment, some are still accessible for free. Or with a very low investment of a few tens of euros.
For a long time, I didn’t get into MLM because the concept was a bit vague for me. And I mostly thought it was for people with really good marketing skills.
This was true a few years ago, but since then things have changed. And some MLMs are accessible to everyone. No need to be savvy in marketing or something else so much that the products or services are interesting. It is enough just to talk about it around either to make word of mouth work.
I was also afraid of falling on an online scam. Many people (including me a few years ago) confuse MLM (which is a legal pyramid scheme) with Ponzi schemes which are illegal pyramid schemes.
Indeed, Ponzi schemes remunerate former members with the money of new entrants, which is not the case in MLM.
At the time of writing this article, I’m only part of one MLM (because I’m very hard to convince) and it took me a while to find it, because I was looking for something serious and stable over time (which is not the case for all MLMs).
After several months of hesitation, I ended up registering on Emrys la carte in December 2018. Why did I choose this company and not another? Because it is the only one that is based on the most stable market in the world: household consumption (food, gasoline, etc.).
And it can restore purchasing power to anyone (even without sponsoring and without selling products).
After signing up, I tested the concept for several months and studied the compensation plan in detail to learn all the nuts and bolts and try to find a scam somewhere. And I didn’t find anything, this system is completely legal and reliable in the long term.
Being reassured and sure of myself, I started talking about it to those around me and I made a dedicated article on my blog. I sponsored many people and currently I earn more than 600€ per month thanks to Emrys. And it’s only increasing, because my godchildren have understood the trick and are starting to sponsor in turn!
I think that I will test other MLM in the future (I have others in sight) and that I will add them to this article, but for the moment this one is enough for me.
Although I don’t really consider it an MLM, I also use Builderall which is an all in one marketing tool. It allows you to create websites and blogs easily via a drag & drop system (drag and drop), much like Wix. And it gives access to an auto-responder and lots of other very useful tools.
Builderall develops via a multi-level affiliate system (MLM) and we earn commissions on the subscriptions of our referrals on several levels. So if you create sites or blogs for other people, you can earn commissions every month (as long as they use Builderall).
In my case, I offer a replica site equipped with a sales funnel that I made on Builderall to my referrals on Emrys la carte, to help them sponsor. I created it once and now I just have to duplicate them with the click of a button.
And I get commissions every month on their subscriptions (it’s a win-win). I currently earn 100€/month with Builderall, it’s always taken and it’s only the beginning.
If you are interested, here is my affiliate link to register on Builderall (all my affiliates have access to the best training platform in French to master Builderall on your fingertips).
2 – Cashback
If you don’t know Cashback yet, you’ll love this tip! Cashback allows you to recover money on each of your purchases and therefore give us back a little more purchasing power. It’s like a multi-brand loyalty card.
There are 2 types of Cashback: Cashback on the internet and Cashback in store (in physical stores). Here are the best sites and apps that I recommend:
*. iGraal: it is the best Cashback site on the internet. They also offer a coupon app for physical stores. If you want to know more, I invite you to read my detailed article on iGraal.
*. In addition, you benefit from 10€ offered instead of 3€, by registering with my referral link.
*. Keetiz: it’s the 1st Cashback in store application that allows you to get money back by shopping in physical stores. If you want to know more, I invite you to read my detailed article on keetiz.
*. In addition, you benefit from 3€ offered by using my sponsor code when you register: TGW8ZNY
3 – Paid surveys
Paid surveys, as their name suggests, allow you to earn money by answering surveys on the internet.
In general, the earnings are quite small compared to the time spent, but some sites stand out a bit and appeal to a lot of people.
Some people manage to pocket hundreds of euros per month thanks to surveys, so it is not to be neglected. If you want detailed explanations on this subject, I invite you to read my article on serious paid surveys.
If not, here are some sites I recommend for making money online by taking surveys:
*. Surveys remunerated.fr: use this link for registrations in France and this one for registrations in Belgium.
*. Ipsos i-Say: use this link for registrations in France, this one for registrations in Belgium, this one for registrations in Switzerland and this one for registrations in Canada.
*. Toluna: use this link for registrations in France and this one for registrations in Belgium.
*. LifePoints: use this link for registrations in France and this one for registrations in Belgium.
4 – Multi-remuneration sites
Some sites allow you to earn money on the internet in several ways: surveys, registrations and paid contests, application downloads, etc… They are called multi-remuneration sites or GPT (in English “Get Paid To”). ).
The people who do the best and who have the right profile are paid several hundred euros per month, while others pocket only a few tens of euros. When I tested this type of site, I managed to earn 70€ in 1 week.
Here is the list of the best multi-remuneration sites right now:
5 – Multi-remuneration applications
There are many apps to make money. Among these, there are multi-remuneration applications. The concept is the same as for multi-remuneration sites, except that you can perform paid tasks from anywhere on your phone via a fluid application.
Here is the list of the best multi-reward apps right now:
*. FeaturesPoints: enter my referral code KRYZ4N when you register to earn 50 extra points.
*. LuckyCash: Enter my referrer code RNO68 (it’s a capital O, not a zero) to pocket an additional 500 credits.
6 – Multi-banking
When looking to make money on the internet, we don’t often think of online banks. But Multi-banking allows you to earn money quickly and easily.
This concept allows customers to take advantage of the system by opening accounts in several online banks and therefore to benefit several times from sponsorship bonuses.
There are referral bonuses for referrals on registration, but also for sponsors. The premiums can vary from 50€ to 150€ approximately.
Taking the low range of €50 for the sponsor and the godson, let’s imagine that you register in 6 online banks. You receive 50 x 6 = €300 and if you sponsor your spouse in turn, you still receive €300 each, or €900 in total. Interesting no?
But it doesn’t stop there, you can also sponsor your parents, friends, work colleagues, etc…
I will soon make a detailed article on this subject to explain how to do it, with tips to avoid running costs.
7 – Sell documents
Did you know that you can sell documents online and earn money passively? These can be internship reports, theses, dissertations or even market studies. Very practical to earn pocket money when you are a student.
Some people earn up to €500 per month by publishing their documents on the “Docs.school” platform.
Either you enter my sponsorship code e30e91 when you register to benefit from an additional €2.50 on the first consultation of your document. Either you go to this page and send your documents (normally, my referral code should be displayed in the blue banner, next to “Upload your documents”).
You will have the choice in several modes of remuneration. A high premium on the 1st sale will lower the percentage of subsequent sales and if your document hits, it would be a shame.
And after doing all that, they will ask you to register. Do not remove my referral code, otherwise you will not get the €2.50 bonus.
8 – Sponsorship
More and more sites, applications, online banks… Offer sponsorship systems that reward sponsors when they bring them new customers or users.
This promotes development via word of mouth and saves companies from spending money on advertisements (much like network marketing).
As for the godchildren, they often benefit from a premium or a bonus on registration, which makes it easier for the sponsor.
By building a network of people who follow you and trust you, you can earn a lot of money on the internet. This can be done through a blog, a Facebook group or page, an Instagram account, a Youtube channel, or even a forum.
But be careful not to disappoint the people who trust you, otherwise you will lose credibility and your earnings will be affected. Always think win-win.
9 – Become a site and application tester
Site and application testers earn money without spending it, simply by devoting a few hours of their free time to testing a few sites and/or applications. The tests usually last between 10 and 20 minutes.
The testers are paid between €5 and €20 per mission carried out. The advantage is that you don’t need to be computer savvy, you just have to test the ergonomics of sites and applications, say what you think and suggest improvements.
Here are the best sites to work on the internet by testing sites and applications:
10 – Selling photos
I’m not talking about becoming a professional photographer, but if you take nice photos, you can sell them on online banks and earn money regularly.
You don’t have to have a professional camera, photos taken with phones also sell if they are of good quality.
Before launching my blog, I tested this trick by putting a dozen photos on an image bank and one of them was bought by a magazine for 10€. And I took it with an iPhone 5s 😎
There are several image banks that you can try to sell your photos:
11 – Take part in free lotteries
If you are quite lucky, you can earn money online without spending it by playing free lotteries on the internet. The concept is simple, you must watch an advertisement to validate your grid. All earnings are from advertising.
Here is my pick of the best free lottery sites and apps:
- Tombol’App: use sponsor code 161V4 and get 50,000 points from the start.
If you want more sites and applications, you can consult my article dedicated to free online lotteries.
12 – Paid quizzes
In recent years, there have been more and more paid quiz applications (style that wants to earn millions). The concept works very well, because it is free and allows anyone with a good general knowledge to earn money online.
But it is quite difficult for app creators to make a name for themselves in this field. Many applications have closed because they were not profitable. So here is the list of the best apps that always work:
- Quidol: the best French app.
- HQ Trivia: very good, but in English.
13 – Fill in timetables
The Heuresdouverture24 website remunerates its users when they provide opening hours. Admittedly, it’s a bit time-consuming, but some users have collected several thousand euros with this trick.
14 – Online contests
Many companies and influencers organize contests to win gifts on the net. There are contests to win phones, PCs, treatments, boxes, etc. The contests are free and they allow brands and influencers to develop their audience.
In general, you will simply have to share a Facebook, Instagram, Twitter post and sometimes tag your friends in comments, follow accounts, etc… So enjoy!
15 – Reimburse your phone plan
This trick is more about saving money than making money on the net, but a lot of people don’t know it, so I wanted to tell you about it in this article.
If you don’t have an unlimited plan, you may have unused credit left at the end of the month? You can get your phone credit refunded with YouPass.
The principle is simple. You must call or send a text message to a premium rate number and YouPass will pay you up to 70% of your package remaining in your account. You can then use the money in your account to order Amazon, Psn, Xbox gift certificates, Paypal transfers, etc…
Earn money online while working
In this 2nd part, we will focus on ways to earn a living on the internet. These activities can be carried out part-time to generate additional income, but if you are motivated and have the right methods, you can easily make a living from it, and even earn much more than with your current job.
The following 15 ways to make money on the net usually require special skills, but you can learn on the job in just a few months and start making money from home.
16 – Create a blog
A blog can allow you to earn money online quite easily. It can earn you a lot and allow you to live from it if it is in a promising theme, it has been well designed and it is well managed and fed regularly.
I created my 1st blog (this one) and my own business in 2015, I worked on my blog in parallel with my job and since June 2019 I left my company to devote myself solely to my blogs.
I now earn my living this way and I earn much more money than when I worked for a boss and I live much better. I work when I want and I organize myself in my own way. There is no longer anyone to tell me what to do and when to do it.
So I launched a 2nd blog in another theme in September 2019 and it is now starting to bring me some money. I try to diversify my sources of income so that I don’t put all my eggs in one basket.
Namely: it’s good to have several blogs, but you have to be able to manage them all. That’s why I advise you to start with a single blog just to practice your hand and when you feel ready, why not create another one. But be careful not to neglect your first blog.
Here are some tips that I have selected to make money online with a blog:
- Advertising within articles (Adsense, Ezoic, banners, advertising inserts, etc.)
- sponsored content
- Selling training/Ebook
- A subscription for premium items
17 – Create an E-commerce site (Dropshipping)
Dropshipping is a form of E-commerce without stock and therefore without storage premises. The difference with a classic e-commerce site is that when a customer places an order, you send it to the supplier and it is the latter who takes care of the preparation of the order and the shipping/delivery.
In summary, an E-commerce site with the Dropshipping model consists of connecting the customer and the wholesaler. This avoids having storage rooms and employees to prepare orders and ship them. This is an activity that can be done alone from home.
Even if it sounds simple said like that, there are advantages and disadvantages to practice Dropshipping. So it’s up to you to see if it’s right for you and if you’ll be able to handle it all.
18 – Create a Youtube channel
The same way you can make money with a blog, you can make money with Youtube. The sources of income are quite similar to that of a blog.
For this, you must first choose your theme well and regularly publish videos with catchy titles containing the right keywords.
I haven’t yet created a Youtube channel for my site, but if I did, my theme would be tips for making money on the internet and saving money. This theme works pretty well on Youtube.
It is not uncommon when doing searches on Google to see Youtube videos appear at the very top of the first page of search results (often even above the most relevant articles).
Here are some tips I have selected to make money with your Youtube channel:
- Monetization of the Youtube channel (the equivalent of advertising within articles on a blog)
- Sponsored videos/product placement
- The sale of training / Ebook
19 – Micro-services
Micro-services are a very good solution to earn money online by working. Registration on platforms like 5euros.com and Fiverr are free and you can offer your services in minutes.
If you have skills in writing, graphics, site creation, video creation, marketing, social networks, etc… You can cash in a lot of money, and even live off it.
On the other hand, if you don’t have any special skills, you can follow a training course to learn how to earn 1000€ per month thanks to micro-services on the internet. Some are even paid more than 3000€/month.
You can also download my free guide in which I give you the 10 most profitable micro-services on 5euros.com.
20 – Become a web editor
The job of web editor is to write articles to earn money online. Some editors earn up to 4000€/month. But most editors are paid between 1500 and 2000€.
To get started in this field, it is best to start on a site like 5euros.com and with experience you can make more money by writing articles on other platforms.
You can find the list of the best platforms to earn money by writing articles on my dedicated article.
21 – Become a Community Manager
A Community Manager is a person who animates communities on the internet and manages the social networks of companies in order to retain customers. He is the spokesperson for the company.
For example, he may be required to manage social networks, respond to comments and questions, organize competitions, etc.
It may seem easy, but you have to have good skills, be available and rigorous. A bad Community Manager can be useless and worse, damage the image of the brand.
A Community Manager can work in the office, in an agency, but also work as a Freelancer from home.
22 – Sell training
In recent years, we have seen more and more online training. This is because it is a very good way to earn money on the internet.
It takes a lot of work up front, but once the training is created, all you have to do is sell it, manage customers and update it from time to time if needed.
It’s not as easy as it sounds. To create a training that will sell easily, you need to have very good marketing skills (create a quality landing page, sales tunnel, series of emails, advertisements, etc…).
But also to offer very good quality content that will really help your customers. And not just selling training to raise money.
23 – Become an influencer
Since the arrival of Youtube, blogs and social networks, influencers have multiplied. But there is always room in this field and it can bring in a lot of money.
Influencers make money from their community. This can be through an Instagram account, Facebook, Youtube channel or even a blog.
The tips for making money as an influencer are therefore much the same as for bloggers and Youtubers (solutions 16 and 18 of this article).
There are several categories of influencers on social networks, the 4 main categories are:
- Nano-influencers: less than 10,000 subscribers.
- Micro-influencers: from 10,000 to 100,000 subscribers.
- Macro-influencers: from 100,000 to 1 million subscribers
- Mega-influencers: more than a million subscribers.
The more subscribers you have, the better you can be paid, but it still depends on the theme. In general, the more followers an influencer has, the more visibility they have, but the less close they are to their community, which affects engagement and conversion rates for brands.
So there is room for everyone, even people with a few thousand subscribers can earn money provided they are in a good theme.
24 – Become a Streamer
The profession of streamer is increasingly recognized thanks to many online video games and the enthusiasm of spectators (viewers).
Streamers offer online video (live or light delay). These are generally games of video games played in front of spectators on games such as: Fortnite, League of Legends, Starcraft, World of Warcraft, etc…
Streamers have access to several payment methods (depending on the streaming platform they use):
- Display of advertisements during their games.
- The donations of their spectators.
- Monthly subscriptions to their channel.
- Amazon Affiliate.
Here are some of the most used video game streaming platforms: TwitchTV, Youtube Gaming, SmachCast, Mixer, Dailymotion Games, Hitbox, etc… But there are many more!
25 – Offer your website and blog creation service
If you have skills in website creation, it can pay you big! More and more companies want to have a website, whether to sell products, present their concept or simply a showcase site to present their company, restaurants, etc…
And more and more people want to launch their blog or a niche site, whether it’s to earn money on the net or simply to share their adventures, they will certainly need someone to create the site for them and install a nice design.
If you are not an expert in this field or you do not have much experience, but you still know a little WordPress, Wix or even Builderall. For example, you can offer your services on 5euros.com to start and then create your own site creation service and promote it via Google, Facebook, etc…
Good to know: Builderall is an all-in-one marketing tool that offers a drag & drop website builder, much like Wix. it also offers an auto-responder and many very useful tools.
There is a subscription system and an affiliate program. So if you create a site for a person or a company and they subscribe to Builderall via your affiliate link, you will earn commission on their subscription, every month and for life (as long as they use Builderall) .
Thus, you will pocket income passively after creating their website or blog. It is even possible to integrate WordPress with Builderall! If you are interested, here is my affiliate link to register (all my affiliates have access to the best training platform in French to master Builderall at your fingertips).
26 – Online coaching
We see more and more people who offer their coaching services on the internet in different fields. It’s a good way to monetize your expertise and earn money online easily.
If you are a very good expert in your field, the price of one hour of coaching can quickly be high! Coaching hours are sometimes offered for free when selling online training.
Moreover, you can offer coaching via a training platform, by phone, by e-mail, Messenger or even via videos.
Here are some ideas of areas that come to mind in which you can offer coaching:
- Sports coach
- Lifestyle coach
- SEO coach (internet referencing)
- Investment coach (stock market, crypto-currency, etc.)
- Coach in seduction
- Personal development coach
27 – Freelance accountant
An accountant can very well offer his services as a Freelancer and therefore earn money online from anywhere. As long as he’s doing his job properly, he’s free to do whatever he wants on the side. Like traveling for example.
If you are good in your field and you are rigorous, you can easily find freelance job offers on the internet.
28 – Giving courses by internet
If you are a teacher and you are tired of going to school every day to give lessons, or if you are an expert in a field, you can give lessons over the internet. One hour of private lessons can bring you between 15 and 25€ depending on the subject taught.
There are several platforms for giving private lessons. Among the best known are: Superprof, MyMentor and Preply. If you want more, here are the 9 best sites for tutoring.
29 – Transcribing Podcasts and/or Videos
We don’t often think about it, but many podcasters and video creators call on the services of a transcriber to put their podcasts or videos on paper. A successful transcriptionist can pocket more than 2000€/month easily.
So if you are comfortable with transcription, thorough and quick, you can easily make money on the net this way.
To get started and get your feet wet, you can offer your cheap transcription services on 5euros.com and then increase your rates a little.
30 – Sell your creations on Etsy
If you have an artistic soul and like to create costume jewelry, decorative accessories, etc… You can sell your creations on the Etsy platform.
If you’re unfamiliar with Etsy, it’s a platform that supports independent designers by helping them sell their products through their online platform. The items sold on this platform are generally unique and handmade.
Some people make a living on Etsy, while others just generate extra income. It all depends on your talent and how much time you spend on it.
