Here are the 3 ways to make money online. First, you can make it so that you'll end up getting paid for simple tasks and menial labor online. There are several sites out there... Crash Crate, in particular... that enable you to network with people who have simple jobs that you can do that they could pay you for. Some involve paying you a whole dollar for the simple task of signing up to Fan Pages and website subscriptions (you don't even have to use your real email account for these) because they want to build their numbers and impress visitors to their sites.
You'll also be asked to fill in surveys, try out samplers, create product reviews, and the like that you'll be paid money for.
The payment you'll get will eventually add up. You'll also be rewarded in the form of promo codes, cash back, and printable coupons whenever you sign up for free trials and the like. Second, you can go about bookmarking websites and create revenue-sharing articles. The Worldwide Web... even though it's one of the many methods of disseminating information from the Internet that has become "multimedia" in nature... is still mostly composed of text. The Internet is composed of all kinds of text, from web content to articles such as this one.
Sites like Empower Network prove that becoming an Internet writer is a viable method of earning money online. It's quite easy to do, and it's something people do even without thinking all the time (e.g., your Facebook updates, tweets, and emails are all composed of words you've written).
If you're a prolific writer, then writing all sorts of web content, sales pages, press releases, product reviews, rewrites, and so forth is a great means of acquiring passive income without even trying. You can even be paid to write essays, informational articles, video descriptions, transcription of audio, positive comments and feedback, and so forth.
You can write almost anything under the sun and get paid for it, although most of the time it's limited to promotional pieces. Finally, you can try out peer-to-peer lending if you want to try something new in the realm of acquiring money off the Internet. It involves acquiring loans from "peers", so it's essentially a no-credit-check loan via P2P lending sites.
Although it sounds like risky business and it's a lot more viable to get a job than to ask for loans from strangers, there are nevertheless built-in safeguards to mitigate potential risk.
