    Networking to Earn Online

    Earning money online is fun, and is often a Godsend for many of those who do so. It often starts out as a hobby, but once you get started, it's easy to jump right in with both feet. I have been earning online for over nine years, but got started by "meeting" a lot of folks in the freebie forums. I started my own, several years ago, and found out quickly, just how helpful it is to have friends "in the know".

    Once I started doing surveys, I created an email group to share invitations that were open to anyone. I became close friends with a few of those, and those friendships have lasted through the years. We started out just sharing information on new companies to join, and good places to find out about new online opportunities.

    Everyone asks me how I earn money online. One of the major points I stress, when trying to teach anyone how to make money with legitimate companies, is to network with others who do the same. After all, someone else doing the same thing probably knows a few places that you don't, and vice versa. Join email groups, check out forums, and, of course, find a few good blogs that promote the legitimate FREE companies. You'll quickly know you don't want to be involved if you find yourself receiving all kinds of links for "a free laptop", etc., where you have to sign up for offers (ie. Spam), or worse, give your credit card information, or actually have to purchase something! The point of seeking out these companies is for you to make money, not spend it!

    Anyway, I would love to hear opinions from any of you. Do you have tips for online earning? I would, happily, post an article, with a link to your site, if you're interested. Also, if you have any comments on things I could do to improve this blog, etc., I'm definitely interested in hearing them!

    Thanks for reading, and happy earning!!!

    Join USA Talk

    I don't have any personal experience with this company yet, as I just recently signed up, but others are saying they pay VERY well, and they have received surveys for $75-100, so it sounds like it is definitely worth a try! Also, the people I have heard good things from are, also, 'regulars' in the survey world, so I would dare to say that it is probably a great company.

    Looking for a flexible creative writing job?

    Sign up for Triond today, and increase the readership, comments, and income of your writing. Earn monthly revenues while you build a portfolio of your writing. Get paid to publish original content online!

    How it Works

    Triond is as simple as 1-2-3:

    1. You create unique and original content and submit it to us.
    2. We publish your content on appropriate websites.
    3. You gain recognition, increase viewership, build a portfolio, and earn royalties.

    It's as simple as that.

    Creating Content

    You may create interesting content on any topic, in any language, and in any media format. You can submit articles you have written, videos and pictures you have shot, or podcasts or original music you have recorded.


    Once your content is submitted and approved, we publish it on the website where we feel it will have the greatest impact either on our networks or our partners' networks. Your content will appear on the site that best suits its topic and language. From that moment on, you may increase your readership, gain recognition, begin building your portfolio, and start generating revenue from your content.

    Gaining Recognition and Getting Paid

    We work to showcase your content in a way that increases its viewership and maximizes its income-generating potential. Authors who try to publish their work individually often face a number of obstacles that have nothing to do with writing, including technical, operational, marketing and financial issues. As a result, most user-generated content does not reach its full potential.

    Publishing with us allows you to focus on your creativity and expression, as our professionals take care of all the technical, marketing, operational and financial difficulties. Combining your knowledge, skills and creativity with our publishing expertise is easy and will generate greater readership, wider recognition, higher revenues, and provide a place to showcase your content.

    As soon as your content is published, it begins generating revenues from several income sources, such as online advertising that appears on the pages alongside your content. Each month you will earn 50% of the revenue generated by your content in the previous month, and you'll continue to generate royalties every month thereafter.

    You will receive your payment on the 15th of each month by check, Western Union money transfer, or directly to your PayPal account.

    Another Mail Decoy Company

    This one is easier to get in with. I did a short term project for them about a year ago, very easy.

    Go to their website and sign up.

    "This is a Decoy Mail tracking service. They send different items to your mailing address, under a "decoy name." You log in each day on their website (whether you receive decoy mail or not) and are paid a small fee and for each piece of decoy mail.

    They do this 1) to track timeliness of mailed items and 2) see if anyone is stealing mailing lists."

    You can make about $50-$170 each month, depending on how much mail is sent to you and where you live.

    Need extra income? Be a mail decoy

    We provide various promotion tracking and marketing intelligence services for major national firms. They are interested in a number of things, such as the delivery date and condition of their advertising mail. From time to time, some sample merchandise to check on delivery of customer orders. We also protect their mailing lists against mis-use. In other cases, we track what other companies are doing in the way of advertising in the mail. These are essential services, many of which are also in the public interest.


    All you have to do is mark the date received on each special piece as it comes in, enter it on our Web site, and save the mailings for a period of time. We may occasionally ask that you send us specific items.


    Participants are credited for each valid item accurately reported. Any mailing costs are reimbursed or, we may make use of UPS call tags, etc.

    There may be extra potential opportunities. From time to time some participants get to keep test shipments of merchandise, or get free copies of magazines.

    Honestly, you won't get rich as a decoy agent, but many people are delighted to get some extra spending money doing something that's fun with hardly any effort. (We cannot promise any particular amount as this depends on clients' needs for your location and a number of other variables.)


    If you are interested in being considered, please fill out and submit the Agent Application Request Form.

    Be sure to include your name, phone number, country and city. We will contact you if there is an immediate need for coverage in your area.

    Make Money Serving Samples in Stores (limited areas)

    Just found a post on Gather about a part-time opportunity that one of the members has taken advantage of, and is enjoying it... serving samples in grocery stores. This company only operates in Florida, Georgia, and parts of North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama, but it sounds like it may be a great opportunity for those of you in those areas! I know my sis-in-law used to do these projects for a company here in Oklahoma, and they paid really well. I'll try to find the info on companies that work in other areas, but for now... for any of you in the areas listed, here is some info on the company, and their link. Good luck! It sounds like fun!

    Serv Corp, LLC. (SC) is one of the largest demonstration agencies in the Nation. SC enlists the services of over 3000 demonstrators and maintains 5 area offices covering Florida, Georgia, and parts of North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama.

    Congratulations Florida Gators, on the National Championship!

    I want to offer a huge congratulations to the Florida Gators, on winning the National Championship in NCAA football last night! Yes, I live in Norman, OK, home of the OU Sooners, and I am a die-hard Sooners fan, and I will always love my Sooners! I am proud of you guys, and hey, we make it to the bowl games every year... you don't have to prove to anyone that you are an awesome team! Out of 119 teams, we made it to the National Finals, and our awesome quarterback, Sam Bradford, won the Heisman Trophy this year... no small feat!!! But, although I am a huge Sooners fan (you should see my bedroom, nothing but Sooner gear! lol), I have to admit... checking over my shoulder to make sure no fanatical Sooner fan is going to attack me... if I HAD to choose one team to win the finals over us, it would be the Florida Gators. Their team is awesome, no debating that, just look at the great season they had... AND they won the Nationals year before last as well! But the thing that impresses me most is their players. Their Quarterback, Tim Tebow, won the Heisman last year, and was nominated again this year. For anyone that doesn't know, out of the 119 teams, I believe it's three players that are nominated for the Heisman. But, even better than his playing ability, is the person that Tim Tebow is off the field! He is a great leader, and a super example for football players, fans and anyone else! Watch this short video, that pretty much sums it all up.

    Anyway, I'll always love my Sooners, but am thankful that, with the Florida win, a real role model and legend will be focused on, and Tim Tebow is a great example for us all, on living, and the true important things in life. Congratulations!!!

    Getting Started With Paid Surveys

    I first discovered paying surveys a little over nine years ago. I was big into freebie forums... you would be amazed at the things you can get completely free online, if you don't already know! Anyway, I happened upon a post, stating that I could earn ten dollars for completing an online survey. I was skeptical, but figured it was worth a try. A couple weeks later, I received a ten dollar check in the mail... I was hooked! I started putting many hours, including many overnights, into researching this "paid survey" industry. I came across many scam sites, but also came across, literally, hundreds of real companies, that are willing to pay for your opinions on their services, products and ideas.

    I have found that most legitimate companies don't contact you on a regular basis. You may receive a survey every month or two. There are a few companies that do send several surveys per week, but those are few and far between, and often pay less per survey. I found that the best way to keep money coming in on a regular basis is to join all of the survey companies that I could find, that offer cash or other incentives for each survey completed. That way, if one of your better companies is only sending out surveys every other month, you still have paid surveys coming in from the many other companies you have signed up with. The most time consuming part of the entire process is signing up for all the different companies, and filling out all the offered profile surveys, BUT, this is the most important part of the process as well. Once you are signed up and have your profiles completed, the easy part starts, getting the actual paid surveys, and getting the checks in the mail!

    On finding paid surveys... my most important piece of advice for anyone wanting to get started is, and pay close attention to this... NEVER, EVER pay to sign up with a company, whether it be a survey company, a company offering telecommuting positions, someone offering a "list" of legitimate companies, etc. The companies that are legitimate and are going to pay you will NOT ask you to pay money. That would kind of defeat the purpose, wouldn't it? Unfortunately, however, I have talked to so many people who have seen those ads that sound so appealing, and happily shelled over cash they didn't have, only to be disappointed because, either the company is not legitimate, or they could have found the exact same information elsewhere... for free. On the same note, so called "surveys" that require you to sign up for offers, giving your credit card information, etc., are NOT the legitimate companies that you want to work with. You have to realize, your opinions really are worth money. I think that is the hardest part for most people to accept, because it sounds too good to be true. But, if you think about it, all of the large brand name companies offer products that we buy. Why? Because they sell products we like, and we want. How do they know what consumers want? They ask! Yes, they are more than happy to pay you five bucks, or even two hundred sometimes, to see what advertisement would make you more likely to buy their product, or to see what flavors you would spend money on. Of course! They are going to make a lot more than that few bucks back, when we are all rushing to spend money on their products. I can't give out name brands or company names, as that would be against the terms of service that one must agree to, in order to participate in the market research studies, but I can tell you that I'm looking at a can of soda that I helped to design, by giving my opinions... and I got paid for those opinions.

    Product testing... real or scam? The rules for product testing are pretty much identical to the rules given above, for finding real surveys. I do product testing for companies that I have a relationship with, usually the survey companies I have joined. Nobody is going to send you an email out of the blue, offering to pay you five hundred dollars and a laptop. The real product tests will come from companies you are signed up with, in order to give your opinions. They may offer you ten bucks to test some cookies, or they may offer you two hundred dollars for testing something more expensive. More often than not, they will pay somewhere in the range of ten to twenty dollars, but, if you stick with the companies and are reliable and truthful in your opinions, you will get the occasional big paying survey or product test. With product testing, you may, or may not get to keep the product, and you may or may not get paid. Generally, most of the product tests I do offer me the product to use for a specific time (and I get to keep the product), and when I give my honest, in depth opinions, they'll offer a small monetary compensation, again, usually in the ten to twenty dollar range. This is a great way to find new products that you will love, although you will find a few you don't like too! The best part, however, is you get to tell these companies, directly, what you do and don't like about the product. You can give your input on how you would improve the product. You have input on the products that are offered for sale!

    Focus groups... If you enjoy giving your opinions, and don't mind speaking in front of other people or being in groups, focus groups are definitely the most profitable way to bring that cash rolling in. There are focus groups online, but you must go through a strict qualification process, and these don't come every day. Usually, the online focus groups will be offered by the same survey companies that offer the regular surveys. An online focus group is a scheduled event, with several people, usually in a chat room setting. It usually lasts for an hour or two, and pay ranges from twenty to over two hundred dollars. They are generally pretty fun and interesting, and it's an easy way to bring in more than a lot of people earn in several days, for a couple hours of chatting.
    In person focus groups are similar to online focus groups, but, obviously, are in person. These can usually be found in large cities, and may be listed in your local newspaper, or somewhere like They are generally held at the Market Research company's physical location. You will meet, usually with a group of people, and give your opinions on whatever product or service the discussion is about. It is usually a pretty laid-back setting, with snacks provided, etc., and when you walk out, they present you with a nice check that you can take right down and deposit in your bank account! Focus groups usually pay really well. The lower end of the scale is usually around $50 or so, but many pay $200 or more, for a one to two hour discussion. Schedule a couple hours out of your weekend afternoon for a focus group, instead of that couple hours you would normally spend watching tv, and you will be nicely rewarded. Look in your local yellow pages, and call the market research firms in your area. Ask to be added in their database, and they will call you when they have a study available that needs people matching your demographics!

    All in all, doing surveys and product testing can be a fun, profitable endeavor. You definitely won't get rich, but you will get to give your opinions to the companies we're giving our money to, and you will earn some extra cash for bills, fun or whatever. If you are willing to really put your time and effort into this on a regular basis, it is not unrealistic to plan on earning an extra four hundred dollars per month or more, and that is not including the free products, gift cards and other incentives you may receive.

    Good luck and happy earning!

    Do Any of You Still Do Paid to Click Programs?

    I'm curious about this. I started doing paid to click programs several years ago, when they were just getting big, back in the day of AllYouSubmitters and their 5 cent links, before they ran off with everyone's money! lol The only reason I ever got started in them was because I had friends who started their own... well, those friends eventually ended up like most of the other webmasters, unfortunately, and closing up in the middle of the night, never to be heard from again!

    What brings this up? My Dad just told me, he finally reached the $40 payout at e-mailpaysu! Yea! He knows the webmaster, so he knows he'll get paid and everything... I signed up under him a week or two ago, just to try to help him earn the small amount he had left to earn to reach payout. I'm so excited for him... congratulations Dad!

    It's also refreshing to hear that there are still good, honest webmasters out there. I know I am still a member of two sites, that I've been with for quite some time, that pay me as soon as I reach the low $2 payout every time. I finally gave up on all the higher payout programs about a couple years ago, due to all the dishonesty, and then clicking away forever, only to have the webmasters refuse to pay.

    Anyway, if any of you are interested, both the sites I am with are very easy to earn payout, even without referrals, and as I mentioned, the payout is only $2... and they DO pay! lol The programs are:



    Figured I would add the link to e-mailpaysu, as well, since it is a reputable AND paying company!


    Get paid for sharing videos, of all kinds!

    Share videos from Youtube, Myspace, or anywhere else, and get paid when others view it! Very easy, and a low, $20 payout!

    Shared Reviews

    A few days ago Shared Reviews announced a new "Bounty" program that you may be interested in. Check out the email -

    "Hey SharedReviewers,

    It took us a few days longer than anticipated, but the author application forms and early customer sign ups are live! You can access the new site by clicking the Apply for Program link in the top right corner of your SharedReviews Profile Home page, or direct dialing in your browser address bar.

    So, what are Bounties?

    Bounties are assignments from customers for custom content they'd like to purchase for their websites. Although initially this will be articles only, it will eventually include Videos and Photos for all those avid Photographers and Videographers in the community. Basically, customers will publicize Assignments they'd like you to fulfill. Our proprietary matching engine will then recommend the best authors for the assignment based on the criteria they enter, where they'll make their choice based on the profile, history, and work examples authors publicize in their member profiles and the info they enter on the application form.

    We have been trialing this program in a private alpha the last couple of months, and with all of the learning we have acquired we see some very cool ways we can revolutionize the pay for content industry for both authors and customers, so expect some earth shattering cool things to materialize when we go live. In the meantime, make sure you come and apply since there's no cost and the earning potential will be huge for those that have the skills, plus we may have some assignments for you even sooner.

    The requirements to become accepted as an author in the beta are:

    1) You have a SharedReviews member account. Our matching engine will leverage all of the great profile info members have shared, and we'll eventually be integrating all author aspects directly into the SharedReviews site in the future.

    2) Youre physically located in North America. We may open this up to other countries with English as their primary language such as the UK and Australia, but we need to keep it simple out of the gate. If [UTF-8?]you’re located in one of those latter two countries and are interested in the program, make sure you let us know either directly through an email ( or on the SharedReviews Forum so we can gauge interest.

    3) You can show us examples of work you've done so we can see what you're capable of. You'll have the options of sharing your resume, sample articles, or links to other sites to highlight your experience. Dont worry if you're not a professional freelance writer, we want to open this lucrative vertical up to anyone who has the ability to create great content and wants to pad their income in these times of economic uncertainty, so quality Reviews and your history on SharedReviews both apply as well.

    Although we may be opening up sections of the new site over the coming weeks, expect our big beta launch in January where we hope to offer some of the highest author payouts in the industry!

    I think this is going to be an exciting program for a lot of people looking to freelance (and NOT through Associated Content!). Hopefully the new SharedReviews will be super cool! I know Im looking forward to it!

    If you're not a Shared Reviews member yet, be sure to sign up here and then you can apply for the Bounty program.

    Ralph and Edna... Not Your Typical Love Story

    The love story of Ralph and Edna...

    Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't

    mean they don't love you with all they have. Ralph and Edna were both

    patients in a mental hospital.

    One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool. Ralph

    suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool

    and stayed there. Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the

    bottom and pulled him out.

    When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she

    immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now

    considered her to be mentally stable.

    When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have good news

    and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were

    able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the

    life of the person you love. I have concluded that your act displays

    sound mindedness.

    The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his Bathrobe

    belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.'

    Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry. How

    soon can I go home?'

    Happy Mental Health Day!
