A concise guide containing links to websites that pay you to take surveys, play games, answer questions etc.. This is a scam free guide.
With time comes new technologies, and with those new technologies comes several opportunities for work. Some people find it easier on themselves to make a living online. They can stay at home with family while their blog generates a passive income and they freelance doing general transcription. Or maybe you just want to have a little cash on the side. The internet is littered with ways to make money. However, let me be up front with you: making money online is tough as jobs haven’t exactly adapted to new technology. If you’re under the mindset that you’re going to be earning $1,000/week right off the bat, this more than likely isn’t the article for you. Don’t be surprised to get credited 50 cents for completing a 10 minute survey, or even a fraction of a penny for other methods. There are opportunities but it takes time and dedication to build on that and achieve success.
Now that that’s out of the way, let me also be clear: I don’t claim to have had any major success making money online. I do, however, understand the basics, which I feel is often tainted by sites littered with propaganda techniques and success stories about how a Jim Flaherty in Wisconsin made $48,236 in 3 weeks and was able to quit his job and sail off into the blue ocean of W
Not always reliable but this is a legitimate survey site that also allows you to earn money for redeeming coupons and completing tasks. You can also earn $3.00 per referral (they do have to complete a survey first, though). You can cash out when you have $30. Relies on checks. Once you’ve received your first check, the time you have to wait to be rewarded again is significantly reduced.
A mirror image of Send Earnings, only this site lacks the option to complete simple tasks for money.
A survey site with a RPG like twist. Some people say this site is fun. You can earn credits which can be used to purchase items at a shop. I personally haven’t had a lot of experience with it but it goes here because I know it’s legit.
More reliable than Send Earnings. You can be emailed when new survey opportunities arise. Average of 15 market points per survey completed. 1000 market points = $50. Relies on checks.
Their points system sounds a little more promising. 1,150 points for $10 but you can earn up to 1,500 points per survey.
10 opinion points = $1.00. Checks take 4-8 weeks for delivery. You Can be rewarded in cash, gift cards and gift codes. You may also be entered in a sweepstakes or drawings for other prizes. You are alerted when surveys are available.
Get paid to do something most people do normally – browse the web. Scour searches google, bing and yahoo simultaneously. You get 3 points for every search for up to 100 searches per day, credit for rating and commenting on search results plus 25% of whatever your referrals make. 6500 points = $20.
you can monetize a blog with blogger.com right from the dashboard. Once done, relevant ads will appear on your page. You don’t need to blog about anything that makes sense even, it just needs to be interesting. Find a niche and go with it!
A site that pays for you to answer questions. The questions here are a bit advanced!
Get paid to write articles on anything you want. This does however, require a writing sample to be sent in.
Get paid to review free programs, including games. Depending on the quality of your review the payout can actually be relatively high. The one downfall of this however is that you may have to wait a week or two to be graded and receive payment for your work.
I chose this for its information on general transcription jobs.
A place where business hire people to do various jobs. You will need to have your resume handy.
This is a site which will pay you for various odd jobs, such as signing up for certain websites, liking youtube videos and facebook pages and more. You’re required to request a pin which is sent to you in the mail. It may take up to a month to obtain though but this site is very reliable. See proof.
This should be enough to get anybody started. What I like to do is keep these sites categorized in Firefoxes’ speed dial add on so I have easy access to them. Start off with a goal, but be reasonable about it. Tell yourself that you want to earn $10 a day. The two biggest reasons why people aren’t successful earning money online is lack of organization and not setting reasonable goals. If you can’t do $10 a day, do $5 a day, or even $2 if that’s hard and stay with it. Find a few sites you like, develop a routine around your daily schedule. Over time, this will build confidence as well as your knowledge, which is going to help you earn more in a shorter amount of time. Even $5 a day equates to an extra $155/month, or $1860/year. Think of the things you could be doing with that extra money. And over time, your daily rates will double. If you have the time and the will power, making respectable money online IS possible. I hope you found this article interesting and easy to read and are inspired enough to go through with the ideas I’ve talked about here.
