Click, Click, Click, Enter: 4 Surefire Ways to Make Money Online
Do you loathe getting dressed every day and dragging yourself to your 9-5 job? Do you dream about living in your PJs and waking up at noon? The answer may be right in front of your eyes (hello, Internet!). No matter what your skills or interests, there are plenty of ways to make money by clicking away on your computer. All you need is a little persistence, willingness to try new things, and a true desire to make it work. Not sure where to start? Give one of these a try:
Turn Your Photos into Cash
If you are a skilled photographer (and sometimes, even if you aren't), you have a lot of ways to make money online. You can always enter a best photo contest or two since it seems like everyone is having those these days, or you can set up a website and become a freelancer. Better yet, sign on with a stock photo website and create all kinds of random photos that businesses will want to use for their own marketing materials.
Attend a Mock Trial
If you dread jury duty, this may not be the job for you. However, if you are addicted to "Law & Order," you may love the chance to get paid to review case files. The concept for these sites, like eJury.com, is that lawyers want to perform mock trials to get an idea of the public's perception of their case. You receive the actual case files via email, review them, and give your opinions on what the verdict should be. Sounds easy enough, right? It is pretty simple and pays decent, if you can land a case. Most sites will only give you cases that take place within your county, so it is often slim pickings. This may be good for your safety, but not so good for your pocketbook.
Shout it Out
If you love giving your opinion (and who doesn't?), but want something steadier than mock trial work, online surveys are a great solution. There are plenty of sites out there, such as Opinion Outpost that will pay you to answer questions about your shopping habits, what foods you like to eat, and more. Does this sound too good to be true? It's a very real source of income. Just be prepared to put in time at the beginning with the surveys that pay pennies so that you can gain access to the high dollar ones.
Become a Know it All
If you are an expert in a particular field and you can prove it, you may be able to make a decent stash of cash by providing everyday people with answers to their questions. There are a lot of different sites out there with different requirements, but Just Answer is one of the most popular because it ensures that the people responding to the inquiries are qualified to do so. Most of the questions are legal or medical related, but even some general categories get decent hits. Hey, you may as well put your education to good use and finally get those student loans paid off.
