13) Sweatcoin (app) - A mobile app pays you to walk, and works in the background while you use your phone as normal. You probably guessed it, the more you walk the more you'll earn. It's a great incentive for getting in some extra exercise.

14) Branded Surveys - One of my favourite surveys sites that pays you to do almost nothing buy completing the daily poll. It takes 2 seconds to complete and you can earn 5 cents every day for this. But, as the name suggests, you can also earn by completing online surveys. In some cases you can get paid even if you don't qualify for a survey. See my payment proof below:

Top Tips To Make The Most Money

1) Be Consistent

One of the most successful ways to make the most money with these sites is to be as consistent as possible. For example, if there are sites that pay daily, then make sure to log in daily to get paid. 

The more consistent you are, the more chance you have to earn as much as you can.

2) Get Referrals

This is the easiest way to make more money online with these sites. 

If you can build up your number of referrals, they could help earn money for you and you won't even have to use the sites as often.

I recently discovered I have 500+ referrals on my #1 recommended survey site. I hadn't used the site in months, but thanks to my referrals, I was recently able to withdraw over £30.

I mostly get referrals through my blog and Youtube.

Let me know in the comments section below if you'd like me to share some training on how to gain referrals.

3) Combine Multiple Sites

As well as being consistent and getting referrals, I would encourage you to use as many sites as you can.

I wouldn't expect you to use all of the ones listed, because that may be too overwhelming. 

But even if you just sign up to 5 or 6 and use them often, you could build up a decent number of sites that pay you to do almost nothing online.

Final Thoughts

I hope this list has given you some ideas of sites that pay you to do almost nothing online. 

You won't get rich using these sites, but there are some great options available to earn a little extra money with little to no effort.

You could earn some extra money to spend on a day out, buy something new, pay for a monthly subscription etc.

Whatever your reasons are for wanting to earn some extra money, I hope this list gives you the opportunity to build your income online.

Hey Stephanie,

This is a great post! Who knew there were so many ways to earn a little pocket cash. And doing nearly nothing to earn it, lol.

Personally, I work online almost all day, so having something running in the background is easy. Especially listening to music! It might be kind of nice.

I’m going to forward your post to my kids. I think they’ll enjoy trying some of these.

    Hi Nancy, each site listed in this post has a different payout method, so how you get paid will depend on the site you are referring to.
