1) Websites that pay for making money online
The websites listed below will not make you a millionaire but will help you earn some extra cash. All these websites pay you for various things such as shopping, taking surveys or testing products. Promoting these websites is not the intention. Here are some legitimate websites that pay:
- Swagbucks – This website is great for earning some extra cash. A variety of things could be done to make money, from taking surveys to using the search engine. You won’t earn a lot but could definitely make a decent amount.
- InboxDollars – It is similar to Swagbucks, since you’re going to be taking surveys, shopping, etc. So for maximum returns sign up using both your accounts. They also offer a search engine that pays just for signing up. If you want to get paid for taking surveys, also check out GlobalTestMarket, E- Poll Surveys, and Survey Club.
- Project Payday – Project Payday is a site that has testimonials of people who have earned a lot of money by getting paid to get trial offers. You wouldn’t surely earn thousands, but you can definitely earn a small amount. By paying you to do a free trial that assume you’ll either purchase the product or forget to cancel the trial and get charged for it. If you can cancel before you get charged by keeping track then this is a great site for making decent money.
- User Testing – They pay around $10 for testing websites. One test usually takes around 15-20 minutes. The purpose is for the owner to watch someone who is new to their site, use it. The value that the site owner gets by watching an actual user experience is worth a lot.
- Fiverr – Fiverr is a great place to make or spend a few bucks if you need the services people offer. Everything is $5. One can either pay $5 or charge $5. You can offer any services of your choice. If you sell art and you’re fine selling pieces for $5 each then you can go ahead. Similarly, you can offer any service you wish and earn a good amount.
- IZEA – IZEA works in addition to a blog. You get paid to blog, tweet, take photos and videos. The pay is mostly based on your followers, so for making money with your tweets, you’ll need to grow your Twitter following. If you want to make money with blogs, you’ll need substantial blog traffic.
2) Freelance Writing to Make Money Online
This is one of the most popular ways of online money making. One can earn about a dollar per word through freelance writing. People with good writing skills can take up this profession.
