One way is to become an affiliate and sell other people’s products. Amazon offers commissions of up to 25 percent on millions of products. They are a well-known and established company so you can feel safe and secure doing business with them. Clickbank offers much higher commissions; however, some of their products may be of lower quality and are harder to sell.
You can also sell your services or expertise at online task sites like Fiverr or Zaarly. At Fiverr, people are making $5 a task in very unique ways. It is definitely worth checking out. Zaarly is a relatively new service that connects a community of people with products and services in their local area.

The downside is that there you are competing with lots of other people from around the world who are will to work for pennies.
A hot trend in making money online is prediction-making. If you are good in the financial arena or you feel more comfortable with risk-taking, you could try your hand at binary options. These allow you to predict the rise and fall of assets in the financial industry and can be purchased by brokers specializing in them. If you are not comfortable with that, how about trying your hand at predicting events. Intrade allows you to buy shares in predicting winners in events like the presidential election or the Academy Awards. You buy a share if you think you picked a winner. sell if you think the person you predicted to win will actually lose. It can be a lot of fun, just be careful not to get too carried away. You might lose all your money instead of earning more money.
You can get paid to be a part of an online mock jury as well at eJury. Verdicts pay anywhere from $5-$10. It works similar to that of a real world jury. The attorney prepares the case and converts the case to an HTML format. The case is then posted to a secure location on the website where jurors can access it, review it, answer questions, and submit their verdict.
As you can see, there are plenty of unique way you can earn money online without spending a dime and with very little skill to get started. Making money can be fun and easy if you take the time to research all the potential opportunities and do your research.
