So, all you have to do is sign up for their trial offers.
3. Take online surveys
They sound monotonous and boring but what’s a little monotony if you are being paid for it? You can take various online surveys at sites such as Swagbucks, MySurvey, Vindale Research and Global Test Market. Just make sure you proceed with caution and not end up paying for joining something.
4. Raise Money Online
You can even raise money online by using sites such as GoFundMe.com. You can raise money for community service projects, medical bills, mission trips or even your college tuition fee.
5. Build Websites

6. Freelance Writing

9. Design web logos
If you have flair of design, you can design logos for some small businesses or blogs.
