Step One - Clean Slate

Step One - A Clean Slate

Before you even get started, you'll want to set up two new email addresses for yourself. You're going to get blasted with a lot of email and spam from some sites, and you don't want these to clog up your main inbox. You're also going to be signing up for free offers at many of your permission marketing sites, and you want a throwaway account for these.

I'd suggest a GMail account primarily for your main earning site, and any other type of free email account (such as Yahoo, GMX, etc.) for your back up account.

Take the time now to set up these two accounts, and then return to this page.

Now that you have your two email accounts set up, you want to make sure that you have a PayPal account. PayPal is an e-commerce business allowing payments and money transfers to be made through the Internet. Online money transfers serve as electronic alternatives to paying with traditional paper methods, such as checks and money orders.

PayPal is a safe, secure way to get paid. Many of these sites pay via PayPal, and you can transfer your earnings into your own checking account.

Now, if you're new to PayPal, I think it's best if you stop here for now, and spend the rest of your free time today learning how PayPal works. Review the help documents, and take your time verifying and activating your account. Be sure to pay careful attention to the security sections, to learn how to keep your account safe. Learn what "phishing" is, and how to avoid it. Taking the time now will ensure you get the most out of your new account.

Once you're comfortable with the ins and outs of your new PayPal and email address, how about getting started with earning your first $5.00?
