In a world that is almost completely functioning at home, and more importantly online right now, finding ways to increase your income has definitely shifted to the online space.
If you’ve been struggling to find something online that works for you and brings in the cash flow you’ve been looking for, you’ve come to the right place. Today, we’ll be going over different methods you can invest your time in, that’ll bring you a little extra cash.
A lot of people are often skeptical about whether or not these opportunities are legitimate. We can assure you that every opportunity listed below has been tested and reviewed by users multiple times. But of course, it’s always beneficial to do your own research before committing!
Community surveys are something that has been circulating in the online realm for quite some time. While there are some that can come off as a scam, there are plenty of reliable online survey communities that are waiting to welcome you to their circle.
Within community survey platforms there are often other options to make cash like contests or even inviting friends. What a lot of people don’t know is these services offer more than just an income. The Univox community survey site puts it perfectly, “it is a great way to have your opinion heard.” Who doesn’t want to get paid for expressing their thoughts?
Payment methods through these websites often vary, but some typical methods are Paypal, Amazon Gift Cards, Tango Cards, or Virtual Master Cards.
Amazon Mechanical Turk
Amazon Mechanical Turk is a service that is a little less known compared to your common community surveys, but just as effective.
It’s run of course by Amazon and works almost like a type of job board. It’s a place where businesses or even self-employed individuals can advertise positions or tasks they need to be completed for a certain price.
All of these assignments can be done virtually and are perfect for anyone looking for a little extra cash flow. According to their official website, these projects can range anywhere from survey participation to content moderation.
This type of crowdsourcing benefits the average individual looking to spend a little more time making cash on the internet in a meaningful and impactful way.
Rakuten is a bit different than our two past entries. With Rakuten, you don’t even have to put in much effort. With a Rakuten account, you can make money just by purchasing everyday products.
You may be questioning how exactly that works and we’re here to tell you. Rakuten has struck deals with some major companies like Nordstrom that give you a cashback percentage on your purchase if it’s made through their platform.
The only drawback to Rakuten is that the cashback can take quite some time to be credited and you aren’t able to get your payout until your cashback reaches a certain amount. However, Rakuten is definitely worth it for those individuals looking to save a little extra cash.
In the 21st century, almost everyone has an online blog, website, or even portfolio – but not many people know the money that can actually be made from these platforms. Even if you don’t think you have a big enough following.
When you register for AdSense, Google will work to produce ads that match the content of your website and the history of the visitors that make up your traffic. Then based on the number of clicks your website gets, you will get a payout from the companies that end up being advertised.
Of course, unless you have a consistent following the monthly payout can vary greatly, but it’s worth the shot!
Sell Stock Photos
If you’ve found a hobby with photography, but aren’t planning on making a career out of it – selling stock photos is the way to go.
By turning to platforms like Unsplash, Getty Images, and Shutterstock you can easily get your photos out there for people to purchase. However, selling them through these third parties can greatly diminish your income.
Platforms like Getty Images taking a percentage of the commission sometimes leaving you with little to nothing. However, it is a great way to get started and many people have experienced success selling stock photos.
Yes, earning cash can be as simple as filling out a survey but remember it’s always important to read the fine print and know what you’re signing up for before you commit.
