HELLO, my fellow money-seeking students! This is my tutorial where I will teach you How to Make a Few $$$ or MORE if you make the effort – online. I refer to this as “Making Coffee Money”. All the ways I show you here will require minimal work – anywhere between 1 to 5 minutes a day! I will never share something that requires you to do hard labor – for those who know me, know I’m a pretty lazy guy;-) Full disclosure:some of the links I posted below are my affiliated links! I mean come on – you didn’t really expect me to write an article about making money online, and NOT attempt to make some for myself! Hahaha.
First and most important – before you begin taking all my advice, make sure you have a way to get paid from your online work!!! There is nothing as annoying as to having actually MADE money, but cannot get access to it! A PayPal account is a MUST – so either create one, or use a family member’s account if you can’t get your own.
1) Join SwagBucks
They basically pay you for doing the thing you already do online – search the web, check your e-mail, play online games, shopping etc. For any task that you do – you get points and later you can easily redeem them for cool gift cards, like Amazon, Target, Wal-Mart etc.
As the name says – get paid posting paid messages on Twitter .If you have a solid Twitter account this will be a great way to ear money. Log in and see how much potential advertisers will pay YOU to tweet there messages. My Twitter has about 4000 followers and the default payout is $3.50 per tweet, you can charge more or less, completely up to you.
3 )Sell You old things on eBay
You will be surprised what people buy on eBay….Anything you have and do not use anymore – list it for absolutely free on eBay and make a few dollars or more . All you need is a picture and a short description of your old ” treasures”.
This is as simple as it sounds and my personal favorite method to make money online. Similar to SwagBucks above but specialized in surveys only. All you have to do – create an account and every day (or whatever you feel like it), you can log in and fill out surveys. The more you fill out, the more you get paid. Easy as 1-2-3. Many companies offer this – some are scams, some are not. I’ve been using PandaResearch.com ( here is my affiliated link - thanks for using it ) – and they do pay great for the work you do, and pay on time, every time. The minimum payout is $50 – but this is easily doable, as most surveys pay $2-3, with the more lucrative offer as high as $25-$35. In 90% of the surveys, you don’t have to buy anything. Just fill them out, 3-5 mins work. While some do require you to pay for a service or buy a product, try to chose something you might actually enjoy getting, and you DO have the option to cancel at any time. HOWEVER, be careful with those – and yes those are obviously the ones that pay very, very good from $25-$50. You don’t want to subscribe to a bunch of offers, forget to cancel them, and have your credit card billed monthly, or receive some bills in the mail. The key here is to MAKE money Here are some examples on how it could WORK – if you DO actually need a credit card, don’t just apply for any online – use Panda’s Discover’s offer and MAKE $50 doing it. If you actually need auto insurance, there is an offer for that too, and it currently pays $18. Have a little problem with acne, try “Proactive” – and again earn $30-which pays for the cost of the actual product. Again – just be very careful, and if you have to buy something or pay for a service, be smart. Do you research, and you will be OK. I can only recommend PandaResearch.com at this time. Sorry, but thru trial and error, I found out this is the company to deal with. I got stuck a few years back with some other survey companies, that don’t even exist anymore and worked for nothing That’s why I stick with Panda, they have been around for quite a few years, and I’m happy with the payouts and terms . You can work with as many as you’d like, just do your research.
OK i agree – you will not really make money using them but will SAVE a lot, which is almost the same;) Huge discounts and cash back offers daily, check the “Forum” section for the hottest deals shared 24/7 by the thousands of members of this very useful website. Those 2%, 5 % , 10% or more cash backs do add up, in a short time you will get a nice payout straight on your PayPal. All the “work ” here is logging in to your Fatwallet account before you buy anything and using their links. Imagine buying a $1000 laptop and having 4% cash-back ( the DELL offer at the time on this article ) – that’s $40 cash , yours to keep, just for an extra log-in:) Simple, effective and PROVEN to work!
6) Use sites like Microworkers.com or Rapidworkers.com
These sites will pay you for completing simple tasks – like visiting a website, liking a page on Facebook , retweet a twitter post – stuff like that. Microworkers and Rapidworkers are more established, and have hundreds of jobs available -but don’t limit yourself to just them. You can do simple tasks on as many sites as you like. Just Google “websites like Microworkers” and check the lists. New companies are coming out all the time – just be smart and do your research before you start doing a hundred tasks on any of the newer sites. You can pretty much be safe and sure on Microworkers and Rapidworkers -with new tasks added all the time. The minimum payout being only $9 on Microworkers.com, and even lower on Rapidworkers.com - $4.
7) Make money from your smart phone
If you are a smart, savvy smart phone owner ( or iPod /iPad ) – put that thing to work ASAP! All you need to do is download an app that pays YOU for doing simple tasks – like mostly downloading/playing other apps/games or watching short promo clips. For iPhone users there is “Free app a day” (search it in the app store). For Android, Tapporo or MintCoins. These are just the 2 that I know/used. However, the app business is expanding -literally everyday, so by the time you read this – new and possibly better apps will be out. Just search the app store and start working. FULL DISCLOSURE: I never actually got paid using those 2 apps I mentioned It’s NOT that they do not pay, or anything like that. On the contrary – I have many friends who have gotten paid in their PayPal or in Amazon/iTunes gift cards, BUT the apps I posted above are legit! The reason I didn’t get paid is … I’m lazy! And really not into playing games on my phone. I signed up for those, DID made a few dollars and then gave up. Since I’m not a gamer, it felt like too much work and too boring for me… But consider this – if you download and play 10-15 games, you might actually enjoy playing them- and you will make $5 or more (not sure about the current payout figures, as that was a few months ago). But, this is a perfectly legit way to make a few $$$ for guys/girls who like to play games on their phones.
8) Make money doing social promotions – on social exchange website . This is the new way to make money online. Basically log into a website (the list will be below) and start ‘liking’, ‘tweeting’,’ pinning’, or watching YouTube videos, and more. Most websites will pay you in points though , not real cash (only the two sites at the top of the list, pay cash) – with the minimum payout being $20. However, the points you earn on other sites are not useless! You can use the points you earn to become a social media rock star! Use it like real money on the website to get more likes to your Facebook page, earn Twitter followers, and watch your page grow ever more popular. Expand and reach a more diverse crowd. And again, if you take, or plan to take my advice to begin posting mylikes.com links (see above) – these social media websites are PRICELESS! Those points you have just earned and spent can get you on the path to making real money, when your newly pumped-up social media pages gets you clicks and $$$. More followers = more money!
9) Content locking
This is a fairly new way to make money online . You can lock ANYTHING that belongs to you, and provided you have good content to share with the world, the user will fill out a short survey to access your material. The “world” doesn’t have to pay any real money to see what you have to offer; just spend a few minutes filling out a survey. It’s easy, elegant, and everybody is a winner. You make money from the company that locked your content, and they pay between $1-$3 per survey. AND since you can lock virtually anything: e-books, pictures, games, website articles, etc. – the possibilities are endless! If you have anything to offer the world, you can make money, while also spreading the wealth and giving back via the internet. It’s beautiful really My favorite here is s company called CPAdoom ( yep – use my link if you’d like ) - I use them because they pay the fastest – maybe not the most $$ – but all the other content locking networks pay ‘net 30′ (meaning you get paid 30 days after the end of the month). However, my guys pay net 7 (next week), or even daily!
10)Make Money Selling Your Old Electronic
This method is more of a one-time deal but still not a lot of people know about it and was recommended by one of the readers here. I checked it and it works like a charm. So – remember that old phone you have in the drawer? Or that old out-of-date iPod ? SELL IT! Websites like Gazelle.com will pay you good money for your old things.The way it works cannot be any easier – go to their website , find out how much they offer, agree , give them your address, they will send you a pre-paid envelope to put your old phone/iPod/tablet, ship it and in a few days the money will be in your PayPal account ( or the check will be in the mail if you prefer checks) . Simple. easy and they do pay well. As an added bonus if you use my link your get $10 on top of whatever they will pay you. Again a reminder – you will see that many websites offer this type of deal – do your research and proceed with caution, if the offer is too good-to-be-true – most likely it is just a scam. Gazzele.com is not.
11) Make money on SEOClerks.com
Another good way to make some extra money online – sell your skills on websites like SEOclerks.com . Anything that you can do or offer – sell it:) I recommend this website over fiverr.com because on Fiverr you can only charge $5 for your work, here – anything you deem appropriate.. Please check them out and i’m sure you will find tasks listed that you can and can do better then those guys offering them now:) Or – buy something, it’s a great plac to find super cheap things/services.
