Three online sites that I've earned from, along with payment proofs.
People use the Internet for various purposes. A growing number of people from all walks of life are looking for ways to make money online. There are a lot of "get rich" schemes out there, along with sites that don't follow through when it's time to payout. Lets face it; there are no shortcuts when it comes to earning cash online. However, there are some sites out there that are legit if you are looking to earn some spare cash. I've written about several of these sites in the past, and I will be addressing a couple of them again in this article. However, this time I will be providing screen shots of payouts that I've received as proof. I'm going to be up front, you will not get rich from the sites that I'm going to provide. However, they are great to use if you have spare time while you are online, or if you are looking to get into earning online. This hub is mainly for informational purposes, and I suggest anyone who reads it to do their own research on these sites and any others. Please read on...
Sendearnings(sendearnings.com) is an online rewards site that rewards users for their participation. It's a lot like another popular rewards site called Inboxdollars. I've been a member of Sendearnings since 2007. Most of the earnings that I've earned from this site came from doing surveys and clicking on the paid e-mails they send daily. I've also earned on Sendearnings from my time playing on the gaming site, Winster. Members of Winster who signed up through Sendearnings, receive $4 into their Sendearnings account for every one million points earned while playing on Winster. Sendearnings also have other ways of earning that include: signing up for offers, doing cash tasks, and playing games. Within the past few months, they have implemented a search option that users can earn from as well. The search has recently become one of my favorite ways of earning through Sendearnings. Sendearnings pays it's members by check, which is something that I don't prefer since I've gotten used to receiving my payouts from other sites through Paypal. Hey it's money right? I guess I shouldn't be complaining too much. The minimum cash out threshold for Sendearnings is $30. The first time a member requests payout, there is a month wait for your check to be processed. However, once you reach Gold Membership status, your checks will be processed on a weekly schedule through the site. Sendearnings also take out $3 every time you request payment. As I mentioned before, you won't get rich through Sendearnings, but it's a great site to use in your spare time online.
I've previously written about Microworkers here on Hubpages. You can check out my previous article titled, "Make money online with Microworkers" here. Since I've written in greater detail about Microworkers before, I won't delve too deep into it again. However, I will touch on the basics again. Microworkers is an online task site where employers can run campaigns, and workers can earn money for doing tasks. Many of the micro-jobs are offered by everyday people online who pay people for performing various tasks including: voting for them in contests, signing up with them under various sites, or following them on Twitter. The tasks are not only limited to what I mention in this hub. There are a variety of different tasks available on Microworkers. Workers on the site must perform the tasks they are working to the employers requirements. It's important to read the employers instructions carefully before accepting any task on Microworkers. Maintaining a good worker reputation on the site is crucial to your membership. I found out about Microworkers from reading an article by an associate on Triond. I joined Microworkers on March, 30 2011, so I've been on there a little over a year. It's become one of my favorite sites in general on the Internet. I sometimes get on there when I'm browsing around online, and I'll do some tasks. Most of the tasks are short, so it doesn't require a ton of effort. Once again you won't get rich by working on Microworkers, but it's a nice site to earn with from your time on the Internet.
Amazon Mechanical Turk
Finally, we have Amazon Mechanical Turk(mturk.com). This is another site that I've previously written about. You can read my more in-depth article titled "Using Amazon Mechanical Turk as an online money making tool" here. As I mentioned before with Microworkers, I won't go too deep into what Mturk is about in this article. That's what my previous article on Mturk is for. However, I will touch on a few points about Mturk. I'm sure many of you have heard of the online retailer, Amazon(amazon.com). Well Amazon Mechanical Turk is one of the suite sites of Amazon Web Services. Similar to Microworkers, Amazon Mechanical Turk is a crowd-sourcing site where workers perform tasks called "HITs"(Human Intelligence Tasks), and earn money. There are various ways to earn through Mturk. Many of the HITs include: writing articles, taking surveys, and performing searches among other things. What I like about this site is that the earnings made can be used to purchase things from Amazon. If purchasing things from Amazon isn't your thing, you can always have your earnings deposited into a bank account. The minimum amount earned to request payout is $10. A lot of people love Mturk mainly because of the amount of HITs available on the site. I've read articles and blogs about people who earn hundreds of dollars a month from Mturk. I imagine it takes quite a bit of time to earn like that, but hey if a person has the time and will, why not use it for something good?
So those are three of the sites that I've earned from in the past, and I'm currently earning from now. I provided the payment proofs to show that there are sites online that are actually legit when it comes to paying. It's possible that I may do future articles posts related to this topic, so be looking out for that. I want to reiterate that it takes time to earn from these sites, and you won't get rich using them. However, if you are like me and prefer using the Internet for reasons besides passing time, then these sites may be of interest to you. There are so many scams and fake sites out there, so always beware; and be cautious. There are also opportunities online to earn spare cash from, so make sure to do your own research before registering for any sites. Thanks for reading.
