Getting Paid to Surf the Web
So you need some extra cash and you’re not old enough to get a job, but
selling lemonade on your street corner isn’t exactly very profitable. So now
you’re stuck with no money, no new clothes, no new CDs, nothing. So what now? Well if you have a computer, then the World Wide Web is your new best friend. I am going to go over some ways teens can make some cash online.
This past summer a company called All Advantage would start a whole new concept in advertising that would change the industry. Their idea: pay you, the common web surfer, money to run their software which displays ads while you surf the web. You surf, they pay. Simple as that. They were expecting only around 10,000 members to join; now today they have close to five million members around the world.
Let me explain to you this whole concept. All Advantage will pay you an hourly rate of 50 cents an hour to surf the web. They have a 40-hour limit, so that’s 20 a month, however they are currently limiting the hours to 25 for some reason or another .You may think this is not a lot, but let me explain some more. They also pay you for each person you refer 10 cents an hour for each hour they surf and each person they in turn refer five cents an hour
for each hour they surf all the way down to four or five levels. This is very profitable just think about all the people you can refer your friends and family, who will also refer other people who will be included in your downline of referrals. Some people with tens of thousands of referrals are making 3000-5000 a month, while many are making over a 100 a month. However, there is a catch for teens. If you are under 18 you will be asked to send in a parent consent form. I personally make around 50 a month with them. Once again not a lot, but money is money especially if you are just surfing the web.
Now after the All Advantage release there are a ton of new companies that pay you to surf the web. I’ve dealt with the following and have received
pay-ments from them: Epipo, Utopiad, GetPaid, and Gotoworld.
Have you ever received payments? Well why not get paid for it? There are companies that pay you 25 cents or so for each e-mail you receive from them. However I do not recommend them because you only receive an e-mail every few weeks and they are not worth a lot. Another way of getting cash online is to start up your own web site.
You can get free hosting from AOL, Tripod, Homestead, or any other free web hosting provider. You can make a site on anything you like:
like your favorite game or music group and join a web ring and bring in some visitors. Then you can get an ad provider which will display ads on your site and you will receive payments if anyone clicks on them. Some providers are www.Eads.com, www.starads.com, and
www.click net.com.Creating a site is easy with the web provider. They usually provide a tutorial to go along.
Finally you may not get a lot of cash online but what about free stuff? There are sites that let you buy stuff for free just for playing games or doing surveys and such. I especially like www.whatshot-now.com. This site offers a ton of stuff you can get online simply by telling them what you think is hot or not. It’s hard to explain, but trust me this site delivers. I’ve
received numerous posters, key chains, toys, and even some CDs from them. Another site is www.iwin.com. Here you play games and win ; I-coins; where you use them to enter in raffles. They have great prizes like new computers and autographs by your favorite celebrity. However, there are a ton of people there so your chances of winning are slim, but if you got nothing else to do then you might as well try. I feel those are the best legal ways of getting cash online, and I hope all you out there have fun while online and perhaps make a buck or two while you’re out there.
