So, are you thinking about trying to earn easy money using paid surveys?

In the World of Paid Surveys, the easy money life might not be what you expect.

If you live in South Africa, or anywhere else in the world other than the US, I suggest you go take a look at this post: “Paid Surveys

According to Jacques:

It is not worth paying $34 dollars to get a list of companies that is not worth anything! It did not work for me, and I can’t see how it will work for someone that tries to make an extra living out of it. Bottom line this is a SCAM

So, what other, LEGITIMATE ways are there to earn money?

Well, I have a couple of ideas I’d like to share with everybody. You won’t even have to pay a cent!

  1. i wish there were really still good people out there who are interested in helping other for free

  2. It irk me to see people out there that want everything for a buck they don’t do nothing for free. I have no income with 6 kids and no husband to provide for us. I have been surfing the net looking for a job that i can do from home as my little one is three yrs old and i cannot leave him with strangers to look after him as it is today with child abuse. Do you think i have been able to get a job ? Nooo every one want me to pay them to help me get addresses of where i might get jobs and then if you do get the job addresses they also want you to pay. WITH WHAT MONEY DO I ASK YOU MUST I PAY

  3. I agree with you. There is no such thing as a free lunch. In a way.

    There are some things you can do where you may not need to pay much (if anything) to receive information on how to earn money. The beauty of the internet is that you can make a living from home. with the skills you currently have.

    Let me know if you’d like more info and I’ll send you a mail. (All for free 😉 )

    1. Kindly email me info on how to make money online, with reasonable risk, i oractically spend 70% of the day on the net.

    2. Hi, rain maker

      Please also send me more info, I’m currently a stay at home mum and need some money to make ends meet.

    3. I would love to know more! Please tell me where I can do work from home without paying a subscription fee? And then get paid to do actual work for them? Please if you can give me any information, it would be greatly appreciated.

  4. There are. the problem is that they are hidden and probably discouraged by our money making “nothing for mahala” sociaty. it is hard to give freely when others are making an earning for the verysame thing you offer, but , what i can say is: when you give freely from your heart, you will receive more than what money could have gotten you. Good always wins!!

  5. Hi rain maker
    Please send me some free goodies that I can do to earn money, I am also in a financial difficulty and need to earn some extra money.

  6. Hi Rainmaker, please send me the info i w.ould like to work from home on a part-time basis. i need seeds to sow in good ground. 🙂

  7. Rainmaker,
    I’ve tried one of these programmes but not very successfully. It seems I needed to a US citizen for it to work. Do you have a better system for a SA citizen to make some extra cash by taking part in paid surveys?
    I would really appreciate your feedback…

  8. To everybody looking for more information about making money, can I suggest you subscribe to this site by entering your email address on the top right hand side of this page.

    After a long break from writing on this site and attempting to make money on the internet, I’ve decided to start focusing on the information I’ve learned, and will be sharing it with all subscribers.

  9. I’ve literally spent thousands of rands, trying to make a buck on the internet and guess how much I’ve earned? NOTHING. ZIP. BLOW SWEET BUGGERALL. I’d like to call myself optimistic, so maybe this will be it…..?!

  10. Hi there I have subscribed to over 30 survey sites and all I get in return is the area that I am in does not support the surveys. Why? Just because we live in South Africa does not mean we are eliterate. There are many of us out there just like myself who are qualified in our fields but cannot find a position because of colour or that we are too over qualified or because in the economy we live in they can’t support our salaries. This is bull. If only there was a way to make our lives different I would take it with open arms and work my but off to achieve it. The only broblem is that these people overseas don’t seam to understand that $75 is over R800 over here who has that kind of momey just lying around today. Well I hope everyone has luck.
    God bless you all

  11. I am also trying to make money on the Internet unsuccessfully. Rainmaker please assist. I live in S.A. and it seems to be a problem for South African people to make money. Why is this. Please help me.

  12. Hiya please assist. We need help here in South Africa. We all want to work, but what about the exchange rate? South Africans have a problem withdrawing money from Paypal. Also why don’t the companies pay us in our currency. We have to pay to convert the dollars to rands. It’s not really fair is it. I have trying to do this get paid to read emails, but so far, disappointing to say, the emails come on a regular basis, but there is never online support. Your queries do not get acknowledged and I wonder if I will ever get paid. Elizabeth

    1. Hi Elizabeth.

      Any chance you could give me/us more information on how the whole “getting paid to read emails” works? Maybe even write a review with more info and I’ll share it on this site for everybody else to learn from, whether it’s good or bad…

    1. It’s taking a little longer to set up my plan on helping everybody make a little extra money. I’m trying to ensure it all works, and is as secure as possible.

      Keep your ears and eyes tuned for more.

  13. Hi there. Thanks for your response. I paid for ‘packaging’ for Home Biz Solutions over a year ago. I cannot get going on that. There is always some glitch or other. They have a locally based office in Potchefstroom who never give me the support I need. I paid almost R600 and am still getting nowhere with them. However they were listed on the Top 10 Companies on the Internet???? I also reads emails for HITS 4 PAY, overseas Company and I read emails for Starclicks. However I have not received a payment yet. I am still trying to decide if it is legitimate. I also signed up for one called Richmail, based in Cape Town. I only received ONE email in over 2 and a half months. I referred a lot of people to them. My friends NEVER got contacted. AND in the last 3 weeks when I have tried emailing them from my log in page on their Website. It comes up as error page. So I tried to email them from my Telkom address to no avail? Has the Company gone bust or what is it with these people. Pleased assist me here Rainmaker. I would prefer local companies to overseas.

  14. Good day rain maker
