If you are strapped for cash and are looking to work from home or just earn some extra money without actually getting a job, there are many ways to make money online. Some people may think it is the easiest thing in the world, but it really isn’t. There are a lot of different places to make money online, but sometimes, these places are not real and offer false promises. Here are 5 real ways to make real money online.
Pitching someone else’s product online is one of the highest paying gigs on the internet. If you want to get in on this, you need to become an affiliate for a mega-site such as Amazon.com. The commissions for this can be as high as 25 percent. If someone buys a product that you are pitching, you earn a cut of the profit. If you choose to work for ClickBank, the commissions can be up to a whopping 75 percent with more than 50,000 products to choose from to pitch.
If you are the type of person who has an answer for everything, this is the gig for you. At websites such as kgbanswers.com, you can become an expert after taking a simple test. A customer then asks a question and they get answers from you, the “expert”. If you are a brainiac, you can head over to ChaCha which will pay you a small amount of money for completing guide tasks. These tasks vary from solving puzzles to answering questions on a set subject. The payout may be small, but it is steady.
A microgig is a way you can offer your services online at task marketplaces. At certain places such as fiverr.com, workers complete tasks starting at $5 per job. If you head over to websites such as Amazon Mechanical Turk, you can earn even more since there are over 200,000 tasks that are listed or money making. These tasks vary in profit and work load. Once the task is completed, the payments are placed in your Amazon account.
If you are good at making predictions, such as election results or the price of gold, this is the gig for you. The Chicago Board Options Exchange, introduced in 2008, created binary options, which are financial contracts that allow you to earn money by making predictions about the rise or fall of financial assets. You can predict hundreds of events such as election results to Academy Award winners. If your prediction is accurate, you can earn quite a bit of money.
Online survey taking is very popular. You can earn a few cents to a few dollars for every survey you take. One of the best paying survey sites is eJury.com. This is a website for mock juries and you are paid $5-$10 per verdict. Other websites, such as GlobalTestMarket.com offer points and rewards for taking surveys. This isn’t a way to make a whole lot of money, but it is steady.
Making money from online jobs isn’t always easy or legitimate. Taking surveys, being part of a panel, promoting products and being an “expert” are just a few ways that you can earn a few dollars here and there. After a while, it will all add up to something more.
