While it is possible to make money online without a website or blog, we would always recommend that you get your own website eventually. It will only cost around $10 a year to register a domain name and you can get good website hosting starting from around $5 a month. You can easily build your website using the free WordPress blog platform.

1. Sell Services Online

If you have a skill that is in demand then you can use freelance web sites like and to promote your services. Maybe you are a writer who can help website owners with their content requirements. Content marketing is always in demand and you can sell this service at a good price and make good money.

There are gig based websites like and where you can post a “gig” which customers can purchase for a set amount. Other freelance websites like and are project based. You will need to submit a bid against a project that a customer posts on these project sites.

2. Affiliate Marketing

If you are new to affiliate marketing it is best described as promoting products and services created by others for a commission. You can promote physical products and digital products or a mixture of both. Every time there is a sale you will earn a commission.

You do not need a website or blog to promote affiliate offers. When you sign up for an affiliate program you will be provided with unique affiliate links. The next step is to drive traffic to your affiliate offer which you can do using social media sites such as Facebook, video marketing through YouTube, writing and publishing related articles on and more.

3. CPA Marketing

CPA stands for “cost per action” and it is similar to affiliate marketing in that you will make a commission. The major difference is that you can make commissions without any sales transactions. The user needs to perform an action which can be providing their email address, their zip code, completing a form and so on.

Commissions for CPA offers tend to be a lot lower than they are for affiliate offers. But it is much easier for you to achieve conversions with CPA marketing because there is no purchase required. You can drive traffic to your CPA offers from social media, YouTube and other free traffic sources.

4. Online Surveys

There are companies that will pay you for completing online surveys. If you live in the United States then you have the best chance of making good money with this as there are more surveys available there. In countries like Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, France etc there will be less surveys but you can still make some additional income from this.

Not all of these survey companies are the same and you will need to do your homework here to see which have the best payouts and the most survey opportunities. We recommend that you join several companies so that you can receive survey offers most days.

5. Video Marketing

If you can make videos then you can use YouTube to generate a lot of free traffic to affiliate offers or CPA offers for example. It is possible to do this without having to appear in front of the camera. YouTube is the second largest website in the world and gets over 40 billion visitors every month.

It is now easier to make videos than it ever was before. There are services like Vidnami and InVideo where you can create videos using copyright free footage and then use AI text to speech technology for the voiceovers. You could create reviews of products and add your affiliate link in the video description.

6. Publish Product Reviews on receives over 230 million visitors each month and this is growing. It is a high-authority website that Google and the other search engines love which means that articles on Medium often appear on the first page of the search results for specific keywords.

A lot of people that are thinking about purchasing a product or service will search for “reviews” before they finally make a purchase. If they find your review for the product they are interested in then you can make commissions from this. Your review needs to explain the good and bad points about the product and why it is worth purchasing.

7. Micro Jobs

There are websites that will pay you for performing micro tasks. These are small jobs that you can easily complete in a few minutes and you are paid on the number of tasks that you complete and the rates offered by the client.

A client may want you to do some data entry work or make some posts on social media websites for example. There are a number of these micro job websites around such as:

  • MTurk from Amazon
