The top ways to make money online

Before the advent of the internet, people had to go from company to company, business to business to apply for a job. Nowadays, it is not that difficult to earn money what with all the opportunities you can find online. Not only can you find job opportunities online but you can also get a home-based job online 


Online surveys 

What is great about online surveys is that anyone can do it as long as you have access to the internet and have a gadget (smartphone, tablet, PC). Research companies or any business recruit people to answer online surveys that will help their business collect the necessary data. Because of the simplicity of the task, don’t expect to get paid a high rate. But it all depends on the company that hires you. The average pay is between USD 1 to USD 3 per survey. Pay may vary depending on how long it will take to answer one and it also depends on how much time you are willing to spend on / spare answering surveys. 


Matched betting 

This is the fastest and most legal way of betting, if you are 18 and over. Many people have gotten a lot of money out of matched betting. To minimize the risk of losing money in gambling, most people use the free bets offered by betting sites and people can win as much as USD 260. Matched betting is considered risk-free because the outcome is not based on luck but based on mathematical calculations. Free bets can be placed with bookmakers. Bets are hedged to ensure that the value of the free bet is retained. The returns for a matched bed is 85%+ if the bet us returned and it goes down to 70%+ when the stake is not returned. It is more likely that people get the value for the stake not returned. This type of betting may sound complicated. But to know more, you can check out the guide here 


Online market trading 

If you are quite knowledgeable about stocks or foreign currencies, this might be your big break to earning some serious money. It may take some getting used to the trends and winners and losers but you will get there. There are many reputable market trading websites and most offer advice or guidance in trading (for a fee, of course). The key in trading is to be patient, know when to buy and sell, and be updated about the goings on in the industry. While the earning potential in this market is high, so is the potential in losing money. This is still considered a very risky sector but if you are able to manage it well, you will end up a winner.
