About us and how we started:
We launched the site in late 2000 as a way to share all the opportunities we found on our travels around the internet where you could perhaps, earn a little extra cash online. The site was launched on the (now defunct) free Yahoo Geocities platform at the end of 2000.
In January 2003 we moved to paid hosting and officially became earnfromtheinternet.com. Although the site is nowhere near as vast as it was (there used to be hundreds of programs we reviewed) we’re still plodding on! In 2021 we decided to scale the site down, and change the whole site over to this blog format (of which we are still in the process of moving everything over, so bear with us!).
What the site is about:
There are many various ways around to earn a little extra cash online – and have a little fun whilst your at it! Paid surveys have become by far the most popular way, there used to be lots of paid email, paid to click and paid to surf programs around a few years ago, but most of these are now defunct.
There are also sites that allow you to surf for free website traffic if you have your own site/affiliate opportunity etc, that may need some extra promotion or hits. You can even earn some cash by affiliating with advertisers looking for people to sell their product or opportunity.
Now don’t get us wrong, your not going to end up a millionaire, or ‘get rich quick’, because these aren’t the kind of programs we list here on The Earn from the Internet Site. But you will certainly find something on the site where you can earn, or even win, a little extra spending money – and we all know any extra cash from time to time is always handy!
For those of you not familiar with the world of making a little extra cash via the internet, below we have compiled a short overview which gives a bit more of an insight as to how it all works. So please take the time to have a look around. Our site offers reviews and information of the various programs you can earn and get paid from. Remember the site is an ever growing resource, so be sure to check back on us from time to time, besides we really would like to see you again!!
Making money online – the reality!
We won’t lie to you, you are not going to end up a millionaire overnight or any time soon for that matter. But we will give you some ideas of how to earn a little extra cash! We shows you ways of how to earn what we like to call, ‘pocket money’. Just a little extra to pay maybe a phone/utility bill or as some extra spending money towards that banging new game app or music/film download!
Unless you have a big shiny popular website, or are a massively successful affiliate marketer who has been working on many different online avenues for years. Then please don’t expect to make a full time income out of it, but money nonetheless you can earn.
Ways to earn.
One of the most popular ways is getting paid to take surveys or give your opinion. This is why you will find we review and write about more of these companies than any other. This is a pretty simple concept where you will sign up for a particular company or program and get paid to give your opinion. They will then usually send you an email when they have a survey for you to take. You follow the instructions and complete the survey and for this you will be credited either with a cash amount, a prize draw entry or maybe even points. When you have collected a certain amount (depending on the site) they can be exchanged into cash or high street vouchers etc.
There are of course other ways which you can earn. Getting paid to read email, visiting websites, signing up for offers to name but a few. Or for the more serious online entrepeneur there is also affiliate marketing. This is where you sell the goods, services and/or products of stores and retailers.
Points to remember:
1. Don’t expect to get rich quick…. life isn’t that easy, and it just doesn’t happen!
2. You have nothing to lose but time…. and besides it really can be fun, especially paid survey and games sites!
3. If a program sounds to good to be true, it usually is, so avoid them!
4. Always check out the programs’ Terms of Service and Frequently Asked Questions, you will find most of the answers here to what a program is offering and how they will pay you.
5. If your planning to work from home, don’t rely on it as a main source of income. Mix it up with other online activities. Check out our Work from Home page for other ideas.
6. Be careful what you spend your cash on.. e.g for upgraded memberships, make sure you are going to get a return on what you spend… that’s if you really want to part with any cash in the first place!!
7. Finally, be persistent, don’t give up after a week or two, like everything else the more time and effort you put in, the more rewards you will get out of it!
So go take a look around tnd see if there is anything you might be interested in. Click on the link, sign up and make some money…… don’t ya just love the internet – but most importantly don’t take it too seriously and have fun!!
