How To Make A Few Extra Dollars Online-- Easy Bucks!
The internet is a wonderful place to make money by doing odd jobs and writing articles. Although you certainly cannot rely upon these sites to make your income, they will give you a little something in your pocket for a small amount of work without any commitment.
MTurk is a site operated through Amazon where people post jobs for a small amount of pay. Usually these jobs have to do with finding search engine results, writing specific articles, taking surveys, translation, and transcribing. The jobs can pay anywhere from $40 to $0.05, and you have to be vigilant, because some are scams designed to make you enter your email address for spam. The pros are that you can work anytime that you want to, choose the jobs that you want to, and most jobs generally don't take that much time. The cons are that a lot of the jobs do not pay well at all, and that you may find you have only made $2 at the end of the day, but those $2 will add up soon.
Squidoo is a site that allows its members to create Web 2.0 articles, incorporating not only text and photos, but also in-site widgets allowing your to shop, tweet, watch videos, and so on, all within your article. Squidoo pays you per adclick, and you can make commission by recommending things on Amazon and eBay. Squidoo requires a little bit of work backlinking, but it can gain you a lot of revenue if you use it correctly
Hubpages works in a way similar to Squidoo, but the format is slightly different. It is a little cleaner than Squidoo and uses less widgets. However, Hubpages offers clickable ads the same way Squidoo does, so you wont miss out on the revenue by missing out on the widgets. Hubpages does not allow duplicated content, so you must post ORIGINAL work on Hubpages only.
I just recently found out about RedGage. It is a site that pays you to do what you would normally do on Facebook and Twitter: post pictures, status updates, blog posts, videos, and links. You can even sync it with your Facebook and Twitter page (as well as a few other social networking sites) so that you don't have to upload twice. You are paid for every view to your page, so the trick is to have not only great content, but TAGGED content so people can easily find it.
MicroWorkers is slightly similar to MTurk, except at MicroWorkers it is for the most part clicking ads, liking youtube videos, and using search engines. The pay is on average lower than MTurk and usually never hits over a dollar, but the jobs at MicroWorkers are VERY easy. They require no thought and very little effort. MicroWorkers, like MTurk is a site that you have to watch out for spam and scams. If you stay vigilant, you can make some easy money there!
So as you can see, It is possible to make a few extra dollars on the internet, but it is pretty impossible to rely on these sites to make your living for you. If you are looking for a little extra spending money, then check these sites out!
