Can You Really Make Money With Your Laptop?


Can You Really Make Money With Your Laptop?

When I first started out online I only ever used FREE methods to make money. That was a few years back now and the internet has changed BIG TIME! So, can you STILL make money with your laptop without hurting your wallet?

Make Money Online For Free

When I first started my online marketing training with Wealthy Affiliate I learned I could make free little web pages and make money from them. This was a massive ‘light bulb moment’ for me.

At first I was a little green – I admit that! My web pages were pretty shitty at best and people didn’t really enjoy their time on my sites. I had to learn the hard way and learn fast…

There are three ingredients you need to successfully make money with your laptop:

  • Time
  • Effort
  • Patience

Without these three ingredients the work effort you cook up is going to taste pretty sour. Do you have these ingredients?

Good, let’s proceed 🙂

Let’s Create a Homemade Money Tree!

First question – how much money are you looking to make online?

If you are short on spare time and are wanting to bump up your weekly wage packet then there are quite a few online options for you:

1) Online Survey Sites

using online survey sitesNow, I’m afraid I’m not going to promote this method of earning money online because it bores me silly – that’s not to say people ain’t making money out of it though!

There are a lot of companies out there that are willing to pay you for your opinion. This simply means you fill out questionnaires online regarding various products or services.

Yeah it really is that simple – but at the same time it is a really mind-numbing way to get help paying bills.

To find the LEGITIMATE survey sites follow these simple rules:

  • Search for the survey sites through Google but stay away from using broad terms like ‘surveys’ or ‘paid surveys’. Always include ‘free’ within the search aka ‘free survey sites’ or ‘free registration paid survey sites’. There ARE scam sites out there and they ARE effective – NEVER pay to join a survey site
  • Credit card or Debit card info is a big no-no! Why would these sites need this info? Only an idiot would give out their card information to these sites – don’t be that idiot!
  • If you are unsure about a survey site simply do a Google search on it including the term ‘scam’ or ‘legit’. If anyone out there has had a bad experience with this particular site they will have voiced their concerns online
  • Create a new email account especially for these sites – THEY WILL take the opportunity to spam you with certain new offers on their products etc.

2) Making Money Through Writing

A lot of people are making money through writing content online and some of them are doing REALLY well out of it!

Content is always in demand on the internet and it probably always will be. People who work in internet marketing circles are always on the lookout for unique content in their niche.

If you enjoy writing you can really make a killing using one of these sites below:

BUT…if you enjoy writing that much you should really think about checking out our third option below. That is the REAL reason we are here today and it is the reason I now work online full time…

3) Affiliate Marketing For Work at Home Moms

Well it’s not just for ‘mums’ – anyone can do it ( but it makes quite an attractive heading don’t you think? ).

I don’t really like the term ‘affiliate marketing’ – I prefer internet marketing!

Internet marketing can start out as something small you do on the side for extra money. Before you know it – things could really take off!

  1. The beauty of the Internet is that if gives you access to so many persons worldwide. You are therefore correct in suggesting that one can have an effective business from home that serves people anywhere in the world.
    Like you, I find Wealthy Affiliate to be an awesome means by which this can be facilitated and would recommend it highly to you readers.

    1. Hi Oral,

      By the sounds of things you’ve already experienced the education the WA has to offer – great to hear from someone who knows how effective they are! You’d be surprised at the amount of visitors I get here that are members of the WA and have seen success through it.

      Thanks for stopping by and giving your opinion on this online education option – glad that you agree with me!

      1. No problem Chris. I have benefited from WA so I can speak from experience. I am glad you are able to help others with the information they need to get their business going.

  2. Hey Chris,
    Thanks for the great information. I am also not a fan of the surveys but, do acknowledge people do make some money from them.
    You mentioned 3 sites for writing content. Have you ever used any of them and if so how was the experience?
    Thanks again for sharing.

    1. Hi Chris ( cool name! ),
      Yeah I’ve used all the content sites mentioned above for both earning and getting content written for me – they’re all pretty impressive in their own ways 🙂

  3. I’ve been through much of your website, and I can say that you certainly do seem to be an expert on the subject matter. There are lots of great ideas for generating extra cash online and I’m thankful that I’ve found your website. I’ll certainly be returning back. Keep up the great writing!

  4. Which of these three is the most successful as far as time and energy put into them? I know some things make pennies for hours of work, but then you read about some people that do so well, making thousands each month–how did they get to that point? It’s the methods that I want to know about.

    1. Hi Sarah,
      I would say that affiliate marketing offers the most out of all the options listed above. The only problem is – there’s a steep learning curve and it takes a lot of dedication! The people that make the big $$$$’s online all have one thing in common – they work HARD!

  5. Hi,

    I have to agree with you about the pay surveys, I’ve done a few of them and they are so boring I didn’t last long. Also it’s hard to make good money from them.

    Internet marketing is a great way to make money as you say. What I love about it is that you get to write about something that you have an interest in.

    Not only that but the amount of money you earn is really limitless. Yes it can take a lot of time to get to the point where you’re making money, but once you get success, the sky is the limit.



    1. They’re not the most interesting way to earn online are they Robert? As you mentioned, internet marketing is the way to go if you have the time – much more enjoyable 🙂

  6. Great article Chris! In fact, there are many different ways to make money online and if you write about each of them your article will be much much longer. As I can see from your article you decided to mention only most popular ways and I think it’s a wise decision because otherwise your readers may get confused which will result in taking no action at all. Taking surveys is legit but it’s not going to earn you enough money to quit your job. It’s good for a little side income. Making money through writing is a good option if you have good writing skills and can create an interesting content. This option can make you good money and even quit your job. Finally, affiliate marketing is another great option to make money if you prefer having your own business over just writing articles for someone else. I think the last option is the best if you want to achieve something great over time.

    1. Yeah people tend to be turned off by super long posts Rufat so I’ve scaled this one down to cover the more important options. Remember – people come online for quick solutions to their problems, not to read thesis length articles 🙂

  7. Hey Chris,
    I like the post. Good information. I’ve tried out a lo of different survey sites. Inboxdollars, swagbucks, etc… And they just aren’t worth the time. The length of time you have to spend to earn 25 cents is just too long and boring.Wealthy Affiliate sounds like a better option. How long did it take for you to do well with Wealthy Affiliate?

    1. Hi Brandon,
      Well I had to learn the ropes just like everyone else and it was pretty hard going – I saw my first money coming in within about six weeks and it just got better from that point onward. There are no short cuts online – if you want to earn money you are going to have to get an education first!

  8. Great site. You have explained everything very well. I have done surveys and the like and am now getting heavily into internet marketing. I just joined WA on 9/16/15 and am learning some new things I am implementing into my old blogs and putting them in my new blogs on WA. You are right about WA being the best.

  9. HI Chris,

    There are actually a number of different way to make money with your laptop be it part time or full time. We truly do live in a a world of abundance.

    Teachers for example can teach online. The more creative one can create their own courses and sell them!

    And that is just one example to add to your list.

  10. Hey Chris,
    I really love your articles and website, they all look so professional! You should put Affiliate Marketing as number one instead of surveys though.

    In my opinion, I earn a lot more from Affiliate Marketing rather than surveys though they do work. Just sharing my 2 cents, hope you don’t mind! Do keep writing more content, I love reading your reviews!

    1. LOL there was no particular order in the article Riaz – I just wrote it as it came! I would also consider affiliate marketing as the top choice to earn online 🙂
