Of all the sites on this list, this is the easiest one to start earning from. All you have to do is sign up and start posting. 

Activity on this site earns you points, which can then be converted to dollars (1000 points = $1). In fact, commenting on threads and creating topics are just some of various ways to earn on the site.

You can earn points by watching and commenting on videos, installing apps, subscribing to YouTube channels, participating in contests, etc. However, some of these are only available to users in certain countries.

BMF also has a referral program where you can earn $1 (1000 points) per referral, even without a website. However, you can unlock more benefits for you and the people you invite if you have a website.

  1. The Forum Wheel

The Forum Wheel is an online network that allows users to earn money by posting comments and/or topics in different forum communities. This unique concept benefits the forum owners as well as they can get quality content generated to their online communities.

Earning money on this site is quite easy. However, you first have to pass a simple vetting process before you can start posting for money.

To do this, you need to submit 10 quality sample posts to prove your proficiency in English. They are not very strict. However, the posts need to be at least 25 words each, free of grammatical or spelling errors, and on topic.

Once approved, you can start earning money by simply subscribing to, and posting in forums that interest you. Each of those posts earn you credits which can be converted to dollars that you can withdraw. 

The amount you earn per post depends on your rating, which is based on the quality of your posts. The minimum pay is $0.05 per post, and the maximum pay is $0.15 per post. 

Your rating can change over time if the quality of your posts either increases or subsides. So even if you get a low rating at first, don’t get discouraged as you can increase it over time.

This platform is quite similar to the previous one, connecting forum owners to writers. One major difference, however, is that PFP has a chat function that enables users to easily communicate with the staff and each other. 

This function makes easy to discuss issues, collaborate on projects, and generally support each other. For instance, users can agree to help each other out by commenting each other’s posts. 

It is also free to sign up, and you must get accepted after passing a vetting process. However, this time you only need submit 7 posts for review. Make sure you read their guide to quality posts before submitting the posts. 

If your sample posts meet their standards, you will be granted access to the forums where you can start earning. Your posts should be grammatically correct and contain at least 25 words. 

New users earn $0.17 per post. However, more experienced users (posted 10 times or more) can earn $0.20 per post.
