Who would have thought you could earn real money, simply by watching ads online?

I have compiled a list of the seven best websites (and mobile applications) that can earn you some extra cash by watching ads.

I have also included an indication of how much you will likely get paid (the important bit).

Now don’t get me wrong, we are not talking huge sums here. And you certainly won’t become a millionaire overnight. But, it’s one of the easiest ways to make money online if you have the spare time and the patience.

On some sites, you will get paid cash, on others earnings come in the form of vouchers or gift cards e.g Amazon, so there are multiple ways to earn or save. Ultimately though what you spend the money on is up to you.

So without further ado, here are the sites and apps that will pay to let you sit down and watch ads:

1) Swagbucks This website is definitely my favourite as it is high paying (relative to others) and it also offers an array of videos to watch. In addition to watching videos, Swagbucks allows you to earn money by playing games and undertaking surveys. The rewards you earn can be traded for cash or vouchers from popular high street shops or online retailers.

Potential earnings: £25 a month

2) Maximiles – This website allows you to get vouchers for watching online videos. New videos are posted to the website every day so it is worth a regular visit.

Potential earnings: £15 a month.

3) Gift Hunter Club – This is another such website that allows you to watch videos online for money as well as letting you earn money for entering competitions, doing polls and completing other easy tasks.

Like Swagbucks, the rewards earned of this site for doing tasks listed above could be traded for cash or vouchers. In my experience, it is better value for money getting vouchers on this website. With Gift Club, you also need to earn typically around £1.20 before the website begins to payout.

Potential earnings: £25 a month.

4) Qustodian– Qustodian is an app that pays you money for watching videos on your phone. You can also earn money by looking at adverts or answering questions in your custodian inbox. The one drawback with this one is they pay very little and thus it is only for very patient people.

Potential earnings: £10 every 6 months.

5) Inbox Dollars – This website allows you to make money from playing games online as well as watching videos, taking part in paid online surveys, and doing various other tasks. The website has a wide array of ways you can make money but the payout is not the best.

Potential earnings: £15 a month.

6) Cash king – This is an app where you earn money from downloading and trying out free apps (including new games), completing surveys or watching videos. Get paid via PayPal or receive gift cards in return.

Potential earnings: £15 a month.

7) Get Paid to Play – This is another app that you get paid for watching video ads, download and play new games, and register on websites.

Potential earnings: £5 a month.

Final thoughts…

The best way to maximize your earnings is to sign up for two or three websites. My suggestion is to sign up for Swagbucks as well as one of the other mobile apps listed above. Swagbucks is the highest paying site and also provides the greatest variety of tasks to prevent you from boring your brains out! You can join Swagbucks free, HERE.

*Whilst the above are ways to make money from watching videos, you can make much more money by creating content and posting videos online. Websites like YouTube using their Youtube Partner Programme allow you to earn money via ad revenue depending on views you have. A popular youtube show with a regular following or a one-off viral video could end up earning thousands of pounds a month. Just by creating content, you enjoy making.
