Make Money Doing Simple Tasks Online

Updated on April 15, 2013

Simple Jobs Online

With the economy being in the shape it is in now, earning some extra money at home might be possible and helpful for many, who are trying to make ends meet. There are simple ways on the Internet to make extra money. Finding the jobs might not be too easy, and you have to be careful that the jobs are legitimate. No one, who is looking for an online job, should ever have to pay for it, and should always read the fine print. Beware of scams!

There are research studies that can be found on the Internet, such as the Harvard Business School, which does online studies and pays for participation in the studies, and others, as well. Another possible way of making money is Amazon Mechanical Turk, which is doing small tasks, but making very little money. The tasks can be done quickly, and there are tasks that pay more. Another option to consider is Short Task.

Amazon.com Mechanical Turk

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing might be another source for extra income. There are companies that have affiliate programs that people can join, for example: Amazon.com, Clickbank, retail stores online, and many, many more. Writing and selling simple information is a possible way to earn extra money. You could write informative articles that help people solve problems. Information about writing and selling information can be found on the Internet, and the Amazon website. Amazon has a book that tells you how to write simple information for fun and profit, at the same time.

Ebay is a great place to sell unwanted items you may have around your house for extra money. Garage sales can also help bring in extra money, as well.

Other Possible Online Jobs

Another online job is Tech Support Expert, where you can put your knowledge to work, helping others, answering their questions, etc...at FixYa.com. Another way to go might be to try to sell your photos online by joining websites where you can submit your photos. The stock photo websites are of high quality, and have many rules and regulations that must be followed.

Your cell phone camera might be a way to make some extra money, for instance, a mobile social gaming company called Pongr, might be a good place to go to win prizes, like gift cards. Pongr has a contest that ends Thursday, September 22. The contest is open to anyone with a cell phone with a camera, and an email address. The contest entails shooting a picture of any advertising that you see. The photo must be emailed to Pongr, using the product's name in the addressee of the email address, for instance, for a coke ad, you would email your photo to coke at pongr.com. Also, the subject line for all contest entries must contain #advertising. The Pongr website should be checked out for directions for submitting photos, etc...

You can earn a Pongr buck for submitting a photo, additional bucks can be earned by sharing the photo on social networks, and from inviting friends to join Pongr. The contest sounds easy to participate in, and all you do is shoot a picture of an ad and email it to Pongr. It sounds like fun, and if anyone would be interested, they could check out the Pongr.com website to find out more about it.

      I tried doing the surveys, too--I usually never qualified for any of them. I think that they are a waste of time. I stopped doing them a while back, because I never got anywhere with them.

      Great ideas, and some that I haven't heard of. I think we get so used to writing for hubpages that we forget that there are other things out there, thanks!
