Google Adsense – This is also one of the popular methods of making money online.  You can sign up with google adsense so you can include ads from google in all your blog sites.  You earn when someone clicks on the ads in your site. The amount per click depends entirely on the ‘cost per click’ of a keyword. You can start with free blog platforms like blogspot or wordpress.  This is basically a numbers game.  The more blog sites you have, the more chance of earning from adsense.

Freelance Work – If you have been endowed with skills like web design, programming, content writing and many others, you can offer your services online and get paid for each time your services is availed.  There are several marketplaces that would allow you to promote your services with a relatively small fee like Elance, Odesk and Guru.  For any other type of services, may it be for fun or just to earn a little extra, you can also try fiverr.  Fiverr is a place where you can offer any services that you can think of for $5.
