Surveys, Freelancing, Odd Jobs & eBay
There are many different ways of making money online that don't require you to promote products or build websites....
Get Paid to Take Surveys
One of the oldest ways to make some easy cash online is by taking part in surveys. Surveys are necessary in the world of marketing because companies want to know more about the people they are targeting. One of the first surveys I even took had to deal with a re-design of the IBM logo. I was asked to describe what my first impressions were, how familiar I was with the product, if I'd recommend it to a friend, etc. In order for companies to improve their products they need to know what their users are thinking, and that is why these companies will pay so much for your opinion.

Do you have any special skills? Do you write really well? Are you an artist or designer?
If so, then you can offer out your services in return for payment. I, for example, am a web designer and graphic designer and I have offered out my services many, many times. I charge different amounts depending on the nature and complexity of the job but I keep my prices low and reasonable so that even the poorest of folk can afford me! Just because I am a designer though, doesn't mean I can only make money designing. I have tutored people on how to use Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and how to code in HTML & CSS.
You can even make money with freelance writing jobs. Many individuals and companies alike, don't have the time nor the necessary skill to write up articles, reports, reviews, product descriptions, etc., so they turn to people like you to do all this for them.
Freelance websites: Freelancer.com, Freelance Riches
Take on odd jobs in your neighborhood. Babysit, watch over people's animals (pet sitting), start a dog-walking service (this is not only a great form of exercise, but you earn money at the same time, too!), rent out your parking spot (when you're not using it, of course), rent out a room in your home/apartment (just make sure to draw up a contract deeming your temporary tenant responsible for and damages, lost or stolen property.
eBay and Craigslist
No longer using those text-books from your first semester of college? Sell them on websites like eBay, Craigslist and Amazon. Many students (such as myself) can't always afford the $300 price tag for brand new books, so we look to these kinds of sites to get us what we need at a fraction of the cost. It doesn't matter if there's notes in the margins or highlighted areas.. as long as the content is readable and the book isn't literally falling apart at the seams, you'll most likely be able to sell it.
Books aren't the only thing you can sell... you can sell virtually anything: clothes, dishes, movies, video games, video game systems, old computers, jewelry, crafts, automobiles, knick-knacks...
