If you take the time to do some research, you will find the most common money making opportunities are covered in this article.

So my friends, here is my review of the most common ways to make money on the internet.

I’ve tried them all so this is my honest opinion.:)


This was my first venture online. Claims of $5000 per month filling out survey’s sounded good.

Boy was I disappointed.

I spent around a hundred hours filling out surveys from numerous companies. In fact I still get emails from companies today. But my days of 50 min surveys for $2 are well and truly over.


I did make some money but nowhere near what some people claim.


A lot are scams

Hard to make a substantial income

Takes up too much of you’re time

MLM/Network Marketing

OK so I haven’t tried this but I have very good reason. I know from speaking to my mentor and other good friends in the home business world that MLM businesses are notoriously hard to achieve great success.

And here’s why. Not sure if there is any pro’s.


You’re success is mostly dependent on building a huge team of distributors. 100’s possibly 1000’s

You’re income can be affected greatly when people leave the business.

The commissions are usually between $20 – $ 60 per sale, so a lot of sales are needed to make a substantial income.

Payment plans are often outdated and sales sometimes need to be passed up to you’re sponsor etc

Affiliate Marketing

OK so this is one of the most popular ways to get started online but in my opinion it’s not as easy as a lot of people make out.


Low/no cost to get started

great for extra income


Steep learning curve for “newbies”

Extremely competitive.

If using PPC (pay per click) marketing, you could lose more money than you make. Commissions are usually around $40 so high volume of sales is required for a good income

Affiliate marketing is best when you have an email list to market to.

Direct Sales/GPT (Get Paid Today)

This is by far the best way I’ve found to make a substantial income and it’s great for newbies.


Direct sales and GPT businesses are great because you get paid first and directly. No waiting til the end of the month to get paid from the company.

Direct sales businesses are generally “high ticket” businesses. Meaning commissions range from $500 – $2000 (just a few sales per month is a great income)

You don’t need to rely on team members making sales ( although building a strong team creates another stream of residual income)

Direct sales is recognised as the best and quickest way to build a big income

You don’t need to work any harder to sell a high ticket product than you do to sell a $40 affiliate product.


Not really any cons but as direct sales have high commissions, they generally have a higher level of investment.

But you can make you’re investment back quickly if you have the right mentor,mindset, and business.
