Online Surveys That Pay
Are you someone who's unemployed, just got laid off or just find it hard to land a job these days? It's rough, even in these economical times. They say that we are almost out of this new 'Recession Era', but almost is not enough. With that said, there are ways to make money without having to leave your own house. All you would need are the following necessities: A computer, an internet and a working mind.
If you have those, then you're on your way to the next step into making money. It's not going to be an overnight success, but with the right amount of time and the right amount of positive attitude, you could make a decent amount of money. The following sites are only those that I have experienced with and have seen money come in. Again, it's not a lot but every little bit helps.
In Box Dollars (www.inboxdollars.com) - I've just recently signed up for this site and so far, so good. They pay you anywhere from $.50 to $1.00 per survey you take. Remember, it's only one survey per day. Also, they pay you $.02 for every e-mail you check for them. As a bonus, you've automatically receive a $5.00 signing bonus so you can't go wrong with that.Signing up is free.
Associated Content (www.associatedcontent.com) - This is one of the couple of sites that you get paid to write your articles, poems and current events for example. You could even put up music, videos or pictures you've taken. All you have to do is sign up for free. and begin to write whatever it is you are interesting in writing about. The more people that view your work, the higher the earnings. It's not big bucks but with hard networking, you could make it just that.
Squidoo (www.squidoo.com) - This one I like personally because it's fun to create. Once you've signed up for free, Squidoo basically lets you create your own page. Whether it's to promote something of yours or just writing about what you know and like. There are tons of cool add-on features (Amazon module, iTunes module, ect.) which makes your page more attractive and cool. Again, the more people that check out your page, the better for you. Also, you could always split your earnings between yourself and a favorite charity so you'll be doing a good deed as well.
eHow (www.ehow.com) - This site lets you write about 'How To' articles and get paid for them. Depends on the views of course. The main thing here is to not only find a good 'How to' article to write about, but to promote it as well. It's pennies really, but like I've said before every penny counts and you could always find helpful articles as well while you're on the site so it'll be a learning experience. Also free to sign up.
Demand Studios (www.demandstudios.com) - The difference with this site as to compared to the others is that while it's free, you have to be accepted in order to start writing articles. Should they do, then they'll give you a choice of articles to write about. You could make anywhere from $15.00 - $20.00 per article with the editors' approval. Your limit is three articles until you are established. Then it gets bumped to ten.
Bukisa (www.bukisa.com) - This is another free article website where once you sign up, you could put up whatever you like. As long as you've followed the guidelines. The more people that view your work, the more your earnings.
There are just some of the sites that I've experienced using that are not to be a scam. Also, everyone of them is free to sign up for so take advantage. It can be a bit time consuming as if it where a 9-5 job, but with hard work it'll be worth it in the end. It will also be helpful to sign up for Paypal so when you make a certain amount of money to just have it transferred to your Paypal account and then you could transfer it to your bank account. What can also help boost your views is signing up to social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Myspace. Make friends and share stories. Do not spam and get yourself banned from any sites. My final advice, take full advantage of what the internet has to offer and be careful as well as to when you put your personal information (with the exception of those sites that I've mentioned previously). Thank you for reading and good luck.
