I know making money online is hard, and everyone seems to be in love with the idea. Unfortunately, it’s hard to stumble upon something genuine. I’ve been getting to know the jobs online this week, constantly scrounging for more. Finally settling on a few, I’ve decided to let you know more about them. Sharing is caring!
Postloop is a website where you get paid for posting on forums. I can hear you whispering, “It’s a scam!” already, but it’s not.
To get started, go on the website and sign up. You will then have to make 10 posts in their forum (called the Portal). The staff will review those posts you made, and will notify you whether you’ve been accepted to post for them in 24 hours.
When you do get approved, you can go to the forums listed and subscribe to one to start posting. For some of them, you’ll need to have a better rating (it is from 0 to 5). But if your review posts are top notch quality, you’ll be ranked high quite easily. On some forums you can only post 5 times a day, on some there is an unlimited amount you can post.
For each post you get points, and for those points you get money. 100 points is $5. It is very easy to reach 100 points a day. Imagine how much you could make in a year!
You can also get referrals. For each point they make, you receive 20%. This does not mean you are taking their points away; it’s like Postloop gives you those points for referring someone :)
You can withdraw the money using Paypal, which is more than suitable for most people. If you feel like signing up, please feel free to use my referral link! ;)
Bubblews is a weird little site. You can post…anything. Your articles can be short, long, with bad grammar (but it’ll be better if you can use good grammar, please). They’re quick to churn out — I posted eight today!
Quoting them — You will get paid for EVERY view, comment, like/dislike and social media shares for EVERY post that you EVER write on Bubblews. So you don’t have to rely on those pesky adverts to pay your dough.
You can also connect with people there (add them as friends). Frankly, the more connections you have, the better, since they’re notified when you do anything — this leads to more views!
The money quickly stacks up in your ‘Bank’, and it’s quite addicting to sit there refreshing the page, watching it increase. Even better, you can get paid by check, Paypal, visa gift card or Bubblews lets you order something.
Again, please sign up with my referral link!
You must have heard of Prize Rebel. It’s more of a gift site rather than a money one. You complete surveys to gain points, which you can redeem for ‘prizes’. If the thing you want isn’t listed, you can always use the custom order.
They also have forums, with a friendly community willing to help.
I know this isn’t a scam since I’ve redeemed things myself. It can take a while for the points to stack up, especially if you’re not from the US, but it’s worth it.
InfoBarrel is a site quickly gaining members. That’s good news — it means not a lot of your article ideas are claimed!
It’s a passive income website. You write articles (with good SEO), consisting of text and images, and post them. Then you can apply for them to be considered to be featured, getting you more views. You can also incorporate Google Adsense, Amazon Affiliates and Chitika to gain money from them.
A little too hard, you think? On the front page, you can read some success stories, and it clearly says that one of the members, at some point, was making more money from the website that from their full-time job. That just outlines the potential with this site.
The community is also extremely helpful and friendly — it’s worth signing up.
CafePress | Zazzle
CafePress and Zazzle let you put images onto high selling items like mugs, tshirts, bags, etc. When something is sold, you receive a commission.
So those pointless little drawing you made when you were young? Why not try and stick ‘em on a mug and gain something?
Zazzle’s advantage is that you don’t have to be 18 or over to join — you have to be 13 or over. So, no more faking your age!
99Designs is famous for it’s logo designs, but you can also create webpages and apps for quite high prices. You compete with other designers to create something, and then the person wanting the thing chooses the one he likes best.
If you get good at it, you’re accepted into the 99Designs store, where you can create logos and sell them (the difference with the main site is that you don’t have to design the logo based on criteria).
Anyway, some people don’t like the idea of spending hours on something and then being beat by someone with a crappy design, but I think it’s an okay place to earn extra money. It’s not a scam — I was paid $200 for one of my logos — that’s how I bought my Wacom Tablet! :)
