16 Free ways to make money from home

We are starting this in no particular order, you just need to  through and find which one best soothes your need/ circumstance.

1. MAKE MONEY FROM GPT SITES


Tested and proven way to really make extra income from home. These are known as Get Paid To’ websites, they literally pay you to partake in activities on their site and earn points’ to redeem as cash or giftcards.

Some outrightly pay you cash and skip the points’ system. These activities include taking surveys, watching videos, downloading and playing games, taking offers, registering for free trials, and a host of other things.

Below are a list of gpt sites you can join to make a few hundred quids. The good thing about this is that the more of these you join, the better your chances of making more money frequently.

2. TESTING WEBSITES


This is a very lucrative way to make about £8-£10, in less than an hour. All you have to do is register with one or more companies hiring people to review websites for clients online, take a qualifying test, if passed, once they have job offers they will send you notification.

You have to always check out for these alerts as everything is on a first come first serve basis, so you will want to be the first to respond.

They will let you know what they need you to do, and you do this by responding back to them through a speaker. Usually last between 15 to 20minutes. Payment made mostly through PayPal, depending on the company you are working with.

List of companies you can join
  • Usertesting.com
  • Whatusersdo.com
  • Trymyui
  • Analysia
  • UserFeel
  • Enroll.

3. DO MICROJOBS AND GET PAID


You can also complete easy tasks online, and get paid, though the amount made on doing these jobs aren’t much, but when they add up, they will surely serve a reasonable purpose.

4. FOCUS GROUPS


Most times, big companies rather than put out written surveys, prefer to have people physically test their products and services to give them instant feedback, in order to evaluate these products before putting them out to the public.

Though you will have to leave the comfort of your home to participate in this, as it involves getting together with other people, the good thing is that its usually not too far from your home, except you choose to participate in one not close to your home.

The payment for these groups is usually fairly good. I think the minimum we have encountered so far is £20, for about an hour project. Some pay up to ,£200 upwards, depending on the project at hand.

List of focus groups you can join.
  • Findfocusgroup.com(US)
  • Takepartinresearch.co.uk
  • Paidfocusgroups.co.uk
  • Respondent.io
  • Focusgroup.com

Site like Fiverr.com gives you the opportunity to display these talents and sell them to who ever is interested in them and your bidding starts from $5 upwards, hence their name. Registering with Fiverr is free.

12. MEDICAL TRIAL


Though the pay one receives in partaking in medical trials are quite high, but so is the risk involved. So before you signup for any trials, make sure you understand every detail of the project before proceeding. Another downside to this, is that you might need to spend some nights at the lab or move to and fro to be monitored.

To take part in this, you can search the web for those offering services within your local area.

Even though taking surveys can be very tedious, it sure is a good way to make extra income, the best tip is to join several of them and focus on the less paying and less time-consuming ones, and that way you can cover more, than, depending on the higher ones with roughly 20 to 30minutes of time, you might end up not qualifying for at the end of the day.

Wow, there are so many ways to make money! Do you think they are worth your time? It sounds so tempting but then I have so many things on at the same time, maybe I could do some of these programs while on my lunch break or something! Thanks for all the information 🙂

    admin · August 7, 2018 at 5:19 pm

    yes Danielle, they are definitely worth your time! Like you said, your lunch break will be a very good time to partake in some of the activities, and at any other free times you have. No amount is too little to boost our income.lol. taking activities from all those gpt sites are sure the easiest way to grab some little extras.. 

    Like swagbucks, you just need $5 to cash out. So wont take long to achieve that.

What a comprehensive list! I have been making money online for 2 years now and I still didn’t know there were so many other ways to make money online. It’s the first time that I’m hearing about Medical Trial and Focus Groups. I will definitely check into those. Thanks a ton for your recommendations!

    admin · August 9, 2018 at 4:24 am

    You welcome Rayhanna. We are glad you found this usedul. Those two ways you just mentioned are definitely good ways to make money too. Especially the medical trial, but that is if you are comfortable with your body being exploited by science. The focus group does well too. Doncheck out the ones we listed above,as they are all very good ones. If you decide to give any a try, please kindly comeback to share your experience if you dont mind, so that others will be more informed.

There’s certainly a big bunch of ways to make a buck on the internet these days!

But which one(s) to choose? Hmm…

Personally, although there are some great ways to make money, like GPT sites and searching the web, to name a couple – I think building your own website is definitely the best option because it’s an opportunity to build an online business and become financially free, which beats doing online “jobs” any day of the week.

Not that there’s anything wrong with doing jobs online for extra cash lol.

I guess at the end of the day, it boils down to personal preference and how much money folks want to earn.

But a website is a no-brainer!

    *smiles* you nailed it Neil, building a website and running your own bussiness to us, remains the best option but since this takes a whole lot of hardwork and patience, not everyone will be willing to go through that. Besides some just need a quick fix.lol. just to supplement what they already have.

    So yeah.. in the long run it boils down to what you want and how badly you want it. Thank you

Nqueen,

You have found some very interesting ways to earn extra income on line. I think doing the on line surveys with the small amounts is worth probably looking into.
These all sound like good ways to start out earning from home in just a small amount of spare time to help with supplemental income.
Thanks for the valuable information.
