Unconventional ways to make money online

Money online

If you’re interested in making money online, you surely know all the most popular ways to earn: selling things to people, clicking on advertisements, writing articles. In this article we’re going to take a look on some of the weirder possible ways to earn money online.

Online jury

If you’re a fan of courtroom dramas, or just interested in law, then you’ll have a lot of fun doing online jury. Of course, online jurors are not employed to give their opinions on real cases, but on mock trials. Those trials might be inspired by real cases - lawyeres might want to know what people think about a certain case before it goes to court.

The job of an online juror is pretty similar to the job of an actual one - they are supposed to read (or listen to) materials they're provided and then answer some questions, expressing their opinion about the case.
Online jurors typically earn between 15 and 60 dollars per case.

Unfortunately for some, online jury jobs are available only for residents of United States.Listening to music

The Internet is full of hopeful artists trying to get popular. That's why websites like Slice The Pie and Music X Ray were created: they pay people for listening to unknown artists' songs.

Slice The Pie pays you for listening to at least 60 seconds of the song and writing a review of it. Your payment varies depending on how well-written the review is. However, this site is unavailable for people in certain countries.

Music X Ray pays you 0.1$ for listening to a song. You need 20$ to cash out, so it takes some time (usually you get several songs a week), but it requires very little effort; you don't have to write anything or do anything else than listen to at least 30 seconds of the song.

Posting on forums

You probably do it anyway, but did you know that you can get paid for this? Forum owners are looking for people to provide quality content for their forums and are willing to actually pay for that!

If you're interested, check out Postloop or Paid Forum Posting. They have a number of forums available to choose from, so you don't have to post about things that are not interesting to you.

Anything you could imagine

Do you have an unusual talent or an idea for an interesting service to offer? There are many websites that let you offer just about any gig you could think of. The most famous one is Fiverr, where you can offer your services for five dollars per gig. Five dollars is not much, but bear in mind that those gigs are not supposed to be huge things.

Some people earn money on Fiverr by offering very conventional things, like writing articles or designing logos, but you can also offer less usual things.
If you have an interesting, original idea or if you're an expert at something, you can become very popular on Fiverr.
