Oh ads. What a love/hate relationship I have with banner ads. The bottom line is they work but require a sizable amount of traffic to make it worth your while. When you start getting traffic, it can be a terrific (and consistent) revenue source.
You, too, probably like the idea of making money at home, whether it’s from a remote job, a home-based business or investments you can manage from anywhere. If so, and even if you already have a home-based income but want to learn more, this list is for you.
Direct Income – when I started making money from my blogs it was through ‘direct’ income streams. I put AdSense ads on my blog and promoted some products on Amazon as an affiliate and the more readers I had the more income began to trickle in (it really was a trickle at first). In time as my traffic grew this income grew and I was also able to experiment with other direct forms of income such as selling advertising directly to advertisers.

I have actually started my online money making journey with paid surveys about 8 years ago or so. So I do have a lot of experience, which is why I have actually created my own paid survey review site, SurveySatrap.com, where I tell you which sites are legit and pay, and which are scams.
Take a look at some paid survey websites listed below. At all of these websites you not only earn some extra cash, but also get rewarded through gift vouchers, prize drawings, free products, etc. All of these sites are free to sign up and use. Heads up: If any survey site asks you to pay, they are probably scams.
As for the difference between blog and forums, there are many. But the main one is that blogs are usually written by one (or few) person (s). But on forums, anyone can register, comment, and interact with others. Forums are more of a discussion type of site.

Thanks for the kind words, Duby. Changing IP may work here and there, but most companies will catch up. Besides, I personally don’t think it’s right to do that. After all, the companies who spend money to conduct the surveys are trying to get feedback from people in certain places, so if I live somewhere else outside of their targeted area, my feedback isn’t going to help them. In fact it will dilute the feedback from actual targeted residents.
If you have a desktop or laptop computer, you’ll receive entries into the company’s $10,000 monthly sweepstakes for every month you keep Nielsen’s software installed on your computer. Every month, 400 people win prizes, with the two top prizewinners taking home $1,000 each.
I’ve got two sites – one focused on personal finance/personal development and the other on resume writing for people in banking. Longer term, the former is likely to be monetized more through info products, while the latter through info products / services. I don’t think either lends themselves to making much on Amazom Affiliates, though I will try. But I’m trying to work out what would be the most “natural” ways to monetize at this time. Thanks.
Sell scavenged valuables. If you have a metal detector, or even just a good eye, go to public places where people are likely to drop something unnoticed (such as parks, beaches, and shopping areas), and look for money, jewelry and other valuable goods. This method isn’t very reliable, but you just might get lucky and be able to find something you can sell quickly for cash.
Writing articles is a great way to put some cash in your pocket. The Internet is made of websites and websites are made of content, which means there will always be a demand for writers who can produce content.
Even regular books can earn you money. Stores like Half Priced Books and others will give you cents to dollars for each of your current books. It saves space on your shelves for something new, and you earn a few bucks.
Usually brand ambassadors are located within a city or college, but some brands have begun to allow brand ambassadors to focus solely on online ambassad-ing (sp? word? idk). Anyway, if you’re good with social media and really connect with a particular brand this could be a great option for you.
