If you plan to make money without spending money, you can try PayPerCall. Most of the PayPerCall offers do not require a website to register, so you don’t really need to purchase a domain name or web hosting. Offline marketing such as posting a few flyers at the proper places will do just fine. Obviously, the main concern is to decide where you should display your flyers. If you plan to target college students, maybe you should post your flyers across campus?
Commission Junction is the easiest place to sign up PayPerCall offers. Sign up is free. Once you login your PayPerCall control panel, you will see a list of advertiser campaigns you can apply and promote. Normally it would only take a working day or two to get approved. Since CJ mainly works with US advertisers, if you don’t live in the States, you might need to setup a website, and think of ways to get US traffic and promote it online. Another way is that you can ask your American friends to help you out, do a revenue sharing or something. Or you might find a similar PayPerCall program in your local area.
Here are two offers I am particularly interested in, you are not only going to make money, but also helping other people.

Before applying, it’s always nice to first check out the advertisers’ websites. CJ is a reputable company, but it doesn’t mean that all their advertisers are legitimate. For example, one of the programs there claims that they will pay you $20+ for a 6 minute call, however, their website isn’t working. If you search that domain name, you will find a result page suggesting that the site could be a phony help site with the possible intention of collecting and selling people data. There is another one which also claims to pay a good $20 per call, but after visiting their website and checking the domain whois data, I found their website a bit suspicious, it just doesn’t look too real. Anyway, Internet is full of both opportunities and scams, you gotta keep your eyes open!
