August was another good month again increasing over the previous month. I was helped in my earnings with a full month of advertisers on board and a decent amount of traffic to the site. I would be reasonably happy at this stage if my monthly earnings remained the same, but I certainly would prefer more!

Here is my second payment from the most excellent survey site, PureProfile. Another $25.00 into my PayPal account with only a slight delay, but no real issues at all. Pure profile has just finished updating their site with a new look a few months ago and already, it has become my favorite survey site to use.
The survey feed is easy to use and set out in a clear and attractive way. There are ‘mini’ surveys to do sometime too, which is a nice way to earn a small amount without commiting to a long drawn out survey.
But my absolute favorite thing about this site is that PureProfile pays you to refer others in the way that smilecity used to do. This allows some extra bonus earning on top of the usual paid surveys that other sites offer.

Ok, you have read the first 3 parts of earn extra money for free and are ready to get started. So now what is your website going to be about?
I would suggest that first and foremost you should choose a topic that is of interest to you. Deciding what to sell or how to advertise will come to you later when the traffic starts rolling in. Have a hobby or something that you love to read about. Great! Write about that. If you are writing about something you are passionate about, you won’t have such a hard time adding to your blog.
After you have chosen your topic get started as soon as you can. If you want to get started for free, you can register with any of the free sites I mentioned in part 1. This will be your base of operations and you should name your page something relevant to your topic for both search engines (like google) to figure out what your site is about and for people who are looking for information to find your site.
Choosing a relevant name is of greater importance should you go the way of registering your own domain. You will want to choose a domain name that search engine rate highly for your chosen topic take a look for instance at the name of this site: http://earnextramoneyonline.co.nz – How easy is it to figure out what this site is about before visiting?
I am trying to cover a lot in a short space here, so I am being very brief. If you have questions or are stuck, leave a comment and I will be happy to help out any way that I can. 🙂

July went much better than June. I have managed to recruit some new advertisers, which has help my earning this month quite a bit. Referring online survey takers to PureProfile has also helped significantly.
Total – $2.74USD = $3.81NZD (approx)
Total – $34.08NZD
Bitcoin – $0.32NZD
Affiliate advertising – $14.00NZD
site hosting – $16.81NZD

Now that you have your webpage up and running and you are getting a few visitors, you will eventually get lucky and a few active referrals will sign up to your referral programs. This will multiply your earnings, so that the more payments you get the more referrals will join you and, the more referrals that join you the more payments you will get. Pretty soon you will have a decent sized blog style page and hopeful you will be getting more and more visitors.
When your visitors start to get up around 1000-2000 unique visits a month, you may want to start advertising a product or service. If you have been really lucky, an advertiser may have already contacted you. Now you can sell real estate on your site to sellers who are interested in the exposure. Often you can be paid monthly for hosting a banner ad or something simular.
Another form of advertising is pay per click. An example of something like this would be google adwords. You host googles little ad module and are paid a small amount every time someone clicks on of the ads. Google hates paid to click sites, so if you are working with any PTC I would not work with adwords or risking getting banned.
Alternatively, you can have a look around for groups or products that offer affiliate marketing. There are so many of varying quality, that I will leave you look them up for yourself, but like with any program, do your research and make sure you are working with someone you can trust. An example of a popular affiliate site would be clickbank.
After you have a website to use as a base of operations, you should now be focused on getting payment proofs to show that the sites that you are using and promoting actually pay and aren’t a bunch of scams you are pushing just to make a buck. In the long run your traffic audience should trust you. If you are just trying to get a few dollars for the short term you won’t be able to continue earning on line after everyone realizes that you are lying to them.
The first thing you should do on your page is introduce yourself and tell everyone what you are trying to do, you will attract people who are trying to do the same and these are the people that you want as they are the people who will sign up to programs that you use. The most effective way to convince people to sign up is to show them your success. Again, be honest, you will be considered untrustworthy if you inflate your earnings and your referrals are unable to get the same results as you.
Get payments from sites as soon as you reach the minimum to cash out. Get as many payments as you can, even if they are small at first. I use payment proof, such as a screen shot of my PayPal account, to prove that the programs I use do actually pay. Of course remember to censor/blur out and personally identifiable details so that unscrupulous types can’t get their hands on your hard earned dollars. Spread these payment proofs far and wide, with your referral link and link back to your ‘home base’ website.
Not too long after the first payment, here is my second. My Opinions continues to be a trustworthy and paying survey site. Almost exactly like smilecity, no doubt because run by the same company, My Opinions seems in my case to have more surveys. This allows me to get more payment proofs to show to you readers. Not the best survey site in my opinion, but if you are going to join several sites as I have suggested in the past, this site is most certainly one that you will want on your list.

June was another poor month, fell right back to where I was in April after Mays successes. I very nearly broke even after hosting though and July is already shaping up to be better than June. I did receive one payment of $20.00 from myopinions though so that is definitely a big help. Will post the payment proof next week.

Unfortunately most people don’t think about earning extra money online until they are in a tight money position, but this is exactly the time when earning extra online is hardest. Ideally you would be able to put a bit of money towards your earning potential at the beginning, however you can earn a bit of money online without putting any money in at all. It will take much longer and the earnings will generally be lower, but you can make a start for free and gradually re-invest what you have earned to create more earnings in your future.
You will want to start by getting a ‘base of operations’. This will be a place to send internet traffic to sell to or get traffic to sign up to a certain program. Again if you have some spare money to put in I would highly recommend creating a website using your a hosting company and buying an unique URL. this will generally give you a better yield in traffic, but if you do not have any extra money to put into venture there are free options. Including wordpress, hubpages, neocities or even a Facebook page. Do some research there are plenty of website that will allow you make a free site on their domain. The last thing you should do, if you have a need of money, is to spend what you do have on magic bean get rich quick ventures. That money is better spent on daily needs. If you want to make some extra money then invest time, not money.
