There are hundreds of different ways to make money online. From selling things on E-bay to trading on the cryptocurrency stock market, the possibilities really are endless. But some methods of making money are easier than others. Wouldn’t it be great to know what the easiest ways to make money are? Well, here at Beer Money we’ve tried a wide variety of ways to make money online and we’ve actually got a pretty good list of what we’d consider “easy” methods.
Can You Really Make Easy Money Online?
To start things off, yes, you can make easy money online. That doesn’t mean you can make free money online – all of these methods will require some effort, even if it’s a minimal one.
This list is going to be ranked from the easiest to the hardest. All of these methods are what we consider the easiest methods to make money for the earning-tier that they’re in. That means the $1,000/month method is going to be more difficult than the $10/month method, but it will still be easier than any other $1,000/month method we’ve attempted.
So let’s get into it!
Phone Farms require the least effort of any other method we’ve tried – hands down. Phone farms take about a day to get up and running, and from there they basically run themselves. They require an occasional check-in, once or twice a day, and other than that they run themselves. A more appropriate name would really be “money farm”.
Phone farms are essentially a collection of phones running video apps that pay you to watch videos (and by videos, we mean advertisements). One phone running one of these apps nonstop will earn about $1 a day on average, so why not run the app on 10 phones?! Phone farming can be as simple as that, or it can be slightly more nuanced.

GPT sites, or Get-Paid-To sites, are easy to use in a less traditional sense. They provide you with a ton of different tasks you can do to earn some cash. The tasks usually require a little effort to make decent money, but they require absolutely no skill to complete. Whether it be answering surveys, using their search engine, or watching videos, you can really make money doing the easiest things.
But that’s kind of a catch-22. These mind-numbingly easy tasks are simple enough for about an hour, but after too long they become incredibly repetitive and boring. I’ve tried dedicating a decent amount of time to them myself, and while it does earn you some spending money it starts to feel like torture after a while. On the flip side, GPT sites are a great way to make easy money fast, because you can usually get paid immediately on the right site. It’s also easy money without much work.
I would recommend using GPT sites in a smart way. Dedicate about an hour a day to working on your preferred GPT site and only do the highest paying tasks. I typically hop on Swagbucks and spend an hour doing surveys that pay $1.00 or more, then call it quits when I run out of the high paying ones. That way I don’t feel like I’m torturing myself and I can still earn a couple bucks. If you’d like to learn a little more about GPT sites I’d recommend you check out our guides on the most popular ones: Swagbucks and Earnhoney.
User testing is an easy way to make money online in the sense that it doesn’t require much effort, but it does require you to have some (very) basic skills and equipment. All you need to do user testing is a microphone, a clear speaking voice, and a half-decent computer.
User testing allows you to make money testing out other people’s websites and giving them feedback. There are tons of different companies that you can do user testing through, but there are also a lot of people doing user testing so it’s kind of competitive. I would recommend signing up for as many different user testing services as you can so that you constantly have offers available to you.
Affiliate marketing is the easiest way to make lots of money. It does require more effort than the other methods listed here, but it will also allow you to see the highest returns.
Affiliate marketing is essentially marketing other people’s products. You find a product you think you can market, build a website based around it, and then you make money for every person who buys the product because of you. All it requires is a little cash to start your website and some time to write articles. If you’re missing the cash part of that equation, it can be totally free to start with Wealthy Affiliate.
I’ve actually built this website as a sort of example of what an affiliate marketing site could look like. If you check out our product reviews, every time someone buys a product based on one of those reviews I make a little money. See how easy it looks to write one of those articles? You could write something like that easily, and it could be making you money!
These are the easiest ways we know of to make money. These all require the lowest effort while allowing you to see the highest returns. We hope you find some of this useful!
