Loop11 is an Australian-based company that occasionally takes submissions for paid website testers. You must complete a 5-minute qualification test to prove your suitability. There’s not a lot of information on pay, but their website says that they pay above-average rates and bonuses. They also claim to work with companies like IBM, JPMorgan Chase and Go Daddy. According to the Founder’s LinkedIn profile, Loop11 has been in business since 2009.
iWriter – iWriter pays up to $15 for each accepted post. That may seem small, but they aren’t as strict as many of the others above and they also allow you to pick exactly what you write. You can write as many or as few articles as you want.
Perhaps you enjoy writing, managing Facebook pages or doing a little bit of graphic design in your spare time. There are so many freelance jobs out there that require simple skills or just time that someone else might not have.
eBay – Of course you can’t read an article about making money online that doesn’t mention eBay. You can start an eBay store and get serious about it or you can just sell some stuff to declutter your home. Either way, I’ve made my fair share from selling on eBay and it’s still a popular way to earn money. If you decide to start an actual eBay store, you’ll want to find a drop-ship business like Doba that will store and ship items straight to your customers so you don’t have to deal with an inventory.
There’s nothing more off-putting than a poorly designed website, and often, it kills credibility. If you know HTML and have a good eye for design, you can launch a service to create attractive, easy-to-use websites for small businesses. Put your skills to good use for business owners who want to take their online presence to the next level. Build a comprehensive portfolio, and then create your own website to show it off and attract a steady stream of clients.
Hi! I work part time at my local hospital putting around 20-25 hours in each week. I would like to know if it would work to pursue this way of getting extra money in? Or do I need to be at home all the time so I don’t miss an opportunity for a test?
Looks like a new site just popped up called https://usertesting.market – seems like you can actually set your own price and there’s no pre-qualification. On the other hand, you aren’t guaranteed to get paid – it’s like your selling your test video.
Absolutely perfect response, and I must say, I completely agree. It isn’t an example of two different professions so much as it is a mediocre analogy for the purpose of exaggerating how important a profession is.
I have a personal blog that I use for journaling. I became good enough that I opened my own business as a social media consultant. I’m now making a decent amount of extra money. I am also a photographer with a lot of graphics program experience, so I make a little more by doing graphic design, photography, and even digital enhancement. You don’t have to be the best at something in order for it to be profitable; you just have to put in the work and be better or cheaper than other people out there. However, it IS work.
Unfortunately, my photo biz is waning. I sell about $100 worth of product right now and as I think about my blog it seems one side. What I mean by this is my blog promotes my Stunning Photographic Art. I think it is not unique enough to catch fire.
For the first hour, I completed short transcriptions through a requester called CrowdSurf Support. I transcribed about 20 seconds of audio for each HIT, which had a reward of $0.05 per HIT — plus a bonus.
Some scams might involve asking you to pay for a “training” book or CD that explains how to make money in a certain business. Others charge for supposedly “exclusive” products that you’re supposed to sell at a premium. Avoid both of these scenarios. Remember, you should never have to pay to get a job. And if someone asks you to, you can be sure that it’s a scam.
Of course, this one is going to be the first on my list of different ways to make an extra $1,000 a month due to the fact that I am a blogger and I write online. I’m currently earning around $100,000 http://elaina.jakartapromosi.com/tips-on-how-to-make-money-web-today-the-quick-process/ month and travel full-time, and you can read more about how in my monthly online income reports.
People Per Hour – Primarily for designers (everything from logos, banners, and websites) People Per Hour is a big marketplace for services related to the digital world. The marketplace also has SEO, copywriting, video and apps but the strength is clearly in design.
Before you really roll up your sleeves and monetize your personal or professional skills, why not right-size your life? Selling your unwanted stuff is a great way to downsize and declutter your life while earning some income on the side. If you’re transitioning to full-time work-at-home status, that income could provide a critical boost to your plans for a proper home office, or allow you to maintain your lifestyle during lean times without resorting to voluntary simplicity.
It’s easier than ever to make money from home. Whether you freelance for a larger company, answer surveys in your free time, or launch a home-based business, the options are nearly endless if you put your mind to it. And the best part about all of these options is that you can do more than one.
What do your friends say you’re great at?I love this question. Not only can it be a nice little ego boost — but it can also be incredibly revealing.Examples: Workout routines, relationship advice, great fashion sense, etc.
How much do you get paid? For example, UserTesting pays out $10 via Paypal for every 20-minute video you complete. That’s $30 an hour! All it takes is a computer, a microphone (you will give your feedback verbally), and an internet connection so you can view the website in question.
A big one — and forgive me if it’s been mentioned — is not building your tribe before launching a product. I hear from people a LOT that they’ve created this AMAZING course that NO ONE wants to buy. It does’t mean your list, or your FB group, or whatever, has to be massive. It just means they have to be loyal and know/like/trust you, want more of what you do or who you are, and excited to take the next step with you. I launch what I consider to be crazy-successful programs that started with 10 people in a basement (whatever the online equivalent to that is). It doesn’t happen overnight. You need to build relationships. Your course isn’t going to sell itself.
The market is highly competitive. As a result, the profit margins are incredibly low and don’t justify the time and money you’ll have to sink into the venture — especially when you consider the fact that people can just as easily find the same product on Amazon (and for much cheaper too).
Naturally, the next one on the list is coaching people how to deliver great speeches. Public speaking is the number one fear on most people’s list – some fear it more than death! This skill can prove to be handy in many areas – from pitching to investors, to delivering key messages at global conferences. If you’re a natural on stage, help entrepreneurs rediscover their in-born ability to communicate by selling effective presentation templates and online coaching classes.
Farmers’ markets are rapidly becoming the go-to places for people who want to eat fresh, wholesome foods. Local and organic both sounds great to buyers, and you’re not just limited to selling fruits and vegetables. Just yesterday I bought fresh homemade goat cheese and a roasted tomato pesto that almost brought me to tears.
Here’s the thing, even though I am re-launching my website to reflect my business structure I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself thinking about the next thing or my first product (I think I want to do an EBook) without fully completing what I am working on now which is my new podcast (Launch 9/15/13).
