Everyone is trying to make extra money and making money online is a great way to make extra money.  The first key to making money online is to set a goal and work towards it.  Believe it or not $30 a day is an attainable goal for online earnings.  If you combine the methods discussed below, you will quickly be on your way to making $30 per day which works out to about $1000 per month.

Get Paid to Write
One of the best ways to make money on the internet is to write.  One way is to create your own blog and monetize it using Google Adsense or other revenue generating sources.  There are instances where people can make up to 6 figures a year writing their own blog, so $30 is certainly attainable.  The only tough thing about blogs? It takes a lot of time and promotion of the blog to make it popular and get it to earn.

Another writing alternative is paid to write sites that will pay you to write articles or create websites.  Sites such as Infobarrel, Associated Content, Hubpages, and Squidoo (to name a very few) pay you to write articles online.  These programs are also a great source of passive income as articles continue to earn after you have written them.  Therefore, if you write many high quality articles you can earn $30 a day from these programs alone.  Again, these programs will take some time for you to write articles and for them to generate the passive income.

Get Paid to Take Surveys
Another great way to make a lot or money online is to sign-up for programs that pay you to take surveys.  Surveys alone will not reach your $30 a day goal, but if you sign-up for a few of survey sites you can make a few dollars a day towards your $30 a day goal.  Check out the link under resources for an article discussing the best survey sites.  The best survey sites include: MySurvey, Opinon Outpost, Pinecone Research, and Viewpoint Forum.

Amazon Mechanical Turk
Amazon Mechanical Turk (mTurk) is a marketplace where Requesters post HITS (Human Intelligence Tasks) for Workers to complete and pay them for completing them.  As a worker you can work from home and make money on Amazon Mechanical Turk or mTurk.  Requesters pay anywhere from $0.01 to $5.00 or more per HIT.  Depending upon what is available on a given day you can earn your $30 per day goal on mTurk.  However, sometimes it can take a lot of time and energy to earn at mTurk, so you may want to use it as part of your goal to reaching $30 per day.  Perhaps have your mTurk goal be $5 per day and then you only need to earn $25 per day from your other revenue sources.

Paid to Read/Paid to Click Sites
Paid to click (PTC) or paid to read (PTR) sites are websites/programs that will pay you to click on links in e-mails or on their sites.  The rates for PTCs is typically somewhat low: .1 of a cent-1 cent per click, but they typically have a low payout and are a great addition towards hitting your $30 per day goal.

YouData is one of the best "paid to click" sites, although it is different and not a traditional "paid to click" site.  YouData is a site that pays you to view advertisements.  These advertisements are typically 10 cents each and YouData will pay you your account balance to your Paypal account every Friday.

Another non-typical PTC is Paid2YouTube which will pay you 1 cent to view a YouTube video, 10 cents to make a comment, and 35 cents to subscribe to a YouTube channel.  Of the traditional PTC programs, some of the best and most reliable payers include: Fusionmails, Donkeymails, Wordlinx, Clixsense, and Zodiacmails.  These sites typically pay fractions of a cent 1/4 or 1/10 for clicked lnks either through e-mail or on the websites, but they can pay up to 1 cent per link clicked.
