man-coffee-cup-pen-large

As we all know it doesn’t take long before we see a post or a link to some site that has something to with “how to get rich” but very few of them work, most of them uses you so the creator can make money. That doesn’t mean that there is none websites that can earn you a buck or two.

Here is a list of 12 sites that work:

1. Make Money Online with Swagbucks

Basically this is a free site that offers you a bunch of ways to earn cash, gift cards, or other rewards.

You can earn money by a variety of methods including:

Answering polls

Using their search engine

Doing simple tasks (like giving feedback about a website)

Gettingcash back for shopping online

Taking surveys

Playing games on their site.

Swagbicks is perhaps the most popular and most legitimate of the online survey sites. Swagbucks pays you a small amount for participating in a consumer survey, which companies then use to figure out what kinds of products to make and sell. You can participate in several surveys a day, and Swagbucks earnings can be redeemed for gift cards from Amazon, Target, iTunes and more.

2. Get Paid by Bing To Drop Google

Did you know that BING is willing to pay you to use their search engine?

All you have to do is just search the web (like you do everyday) from you computer or phone and you will earn rewards. Those rewards can be cashed out for Amazon gift cards (or many others).

3. Sell photos on Fotolia

Fotolia allows you to sell photos you’ve taken for stock photography usage. For example, if a publisher is looking for a picture of a beach and you uploaded such a picture, the publisher can use Fotolia to purchase the rights to use that picture in its publication and you receive a cut of that money. For a photography hobbyist, this is a great way to earn a few dollars for some of your best photos.

4. Get Paid by Smart Panel To Download An App

SmartPanel​ is a new app that collects anonymous usage data from your phone and believe it or not they pay you $15 just to install it. And then $5 more for each month you leave it installed!

All you need to do is click the button to get the app and then you can get paid via paypal or Amazon gift card!

5. Assist on Zirtual

Zirtual is perhaps the most time­consuming, but most rewarding, option. With Zirtual, you sign up to be a Zirtual Assistant to a busy person. The person will send you things to do such as write emails, research a topic and summarize the findings, or personal tasks such as order flowers, manage a personal calendar or write handwritten notes. The starting base pay is $11 an hour, and Zirtual Assistants work weekdays full time.

6. Get Paid by InfoDollars To Watch Videos

How many online videos do you watch each day? What if you were getting paid for watching them? InboxDollars​ (for U.S. only) allows you to earn money for watching videos from their website.

So, what’s the catch?

Each video has ads. So in exchange for watching the ads, they can afford to pay us for it.

7. Get Paid by Usertesting For Testing Websites

Many big companies are looking for feedback about the usability of their website.

This is where Usertesting.comcomes in. You sign up for free and then answer questions about a particular website, explaining what is good or bad, confusing or clear, etc. and then you get paid.

You have to be accepted into the program and must be 18+, but the payouts are pretty good! Their current payouts are $10­$15 per test and the tests normally take about 20 minutes.

8. Rent Out Your Home on AirBNB

AirBNB is a site that allows you to rent out your home to other people who may just want to visit where you live.

You can rent it out as little or as much as you want and can list it to rent by the night, week, or month. They offer a $1,000,000 guarantee to protect you from any kind of property damage that was caused by renters.

They also have a renter rating system, so you can choose whether or not you want to rent it out to a particular renter.

9. Find Odd­Jobs on Craigslist

Some of these might be landscaping work, or similar odd­jobs, but it might be great summer­time work!

10. Offer To Do Jobs on Zaarly

Zaarly is a website that connects those offering random services (like walking a dog, being a personal assistant for a day, giving guitar lessons, etc) with buyers who are looking for those services. I would suggest checking out some of the ideas listed on the site and sign up and offer those services

11. Use Mechanical Turk by Amazon

Mechanical Turk is a program run by Amazon where anyone can sign up and complete simple tasks, like choosing which of two pictures depicts a bridge to earn a few cents per task. With some practice, you can earn a few dollars an hour while just sitting on your couch watching television. And with enough focus, you can earn an amount roughly equal to minimum wage.

12. Get paid by using Fiverr

Fiverr is a website where you can make $5 doing almost anything. On theaps fiver site, people upload jobs that they’re willing to do for $5, like writing Facebook posts for companies. Many of the jobs require creative skills such as graphic design or audio editing, but tasks are things you can easily do on the couch in your spare time.

13. Offer your skills on Upwork

If you have any skill which can be monetize online, you can find clients on Upwork, th global freelancing platform with a combined total 8 million registered users
