If you have a full time job, or maybe you’re a student, or a stay at home mom, you may want to supplement your income with money earned from home. Or you may be desperate to get your hands on some money, but before taking the route of an overdraft or payday loan, you want to look at some alternative ways.
The easiest way to make some extra cash quick these days is with the help of our old friend, the internet. Since the dawn of the internet, endless opportunities have become available to just about anyone with a keyboard and mouse. You can voice your opinion, show your art, sell products, make friends, and even fall in love over the internet. Let’s get started with some ideas.
Surveys are a way of companies knowing more about the general public. They are an easy way to conduct market research before releasing a product or service. With todays technology, companies can survey hundreds and thousands of people with relatively little effort using online surveys. Using a survey company, who pay their users to complete surveys, they can reach a massive audience and get results back quickly.
Joining a survey site is really simple and you can earn as much as £5 per survey. As well as cash, survey companies may reward you with free products or gift vouchers. The website pictured above is called SurveyCompare.net and you simply sign up using the simple form. It’s free. Already when you log in there are lots of surveys to choose from that you can complete. They pay you via PayPal so it’s nice and easy.
On the internet, there are always people who want articles written for their websites. It is usually companies with blogs or article sections on their websites. Thankfully for these companies they do not have to go out and find writers, as well as vet them for writing skills, there are already websites out there that allow companies to hire writers through their system. If you quite fancy yourself as a writer this is something you could give a try.
One such website is textbroker.com, which allow two kinds of people to sign up. People who want articles written, and people who write articles. If you are looking to make some money in your spare time, from home, you will want to sign up as a writer.
Once you have been approved you will be able to apply to a list of jobs everyday. The more jobs you do, the more you get paid simple. But, please be aware the payments are quite low to begin with. Once you prove yourself as a good writer you will get a higher rate.
