5 Easy Ways To Make Extra Money Online
Hey there! Today, I’d like to quickly cover a bunch of ways that you can start making a little extra money online – with minimal effort and time.
These are all ways that I’ve used and continue to use and they’re things that anyone can do.
All of the sites below are are free to join.
Many sites will pay you a small amount for tasks you may already be doing – so why not get a little extra pocket money too?
For example, you could get paid for surfing the web or finding a voucher or cash offer.
So, here are 5 easy ways that you can make extra money online – your best chance at making the most, is to sign up to them all!
Swagbucks is my favourite reward site of it’s kind – this type of site I call an “all-rounder,” because you can earn in variety of ways.
Some of these ways include, paid surveys, watching videos, cash offers and surfing the web.
The best ways to earn from Swagbucks, take the least effort.
This includes, searching the internet via their search engine and using their cashback offers.
The easiest way to use Swagbucks is to download their free browser extension, that way you will be alerted whenever a cashback offer is available and can also access their search engine easily.
There is a huge choice of giftcards that you can exchange your points for, or you can also cash out via Paypal.
My personal preference, is amazon giftcards.
Dealspotr is a cross between a voucher code/web deal site, a social network and a pocket money site.
So, if you like finding deals anyway, why not earn a little extra for doing so also?
If you’re a blogger, you can also receive extra rewards for becoming an active member, referring others, writing reviews and other opportunities.
Qmee is a way to earn extra money when you’re searching online – as little Ad suggestions will pop up related to what you’re searching for and if you click on the Ad, you earn a certain amount.
That amount varies, for me it tends to be between 5-8 pence, (or similar in cents if you’re in the US).
There is no minimum amount that you can withdraw from Paypal, with makes a change from many pocket-money sites.
By downloading the Google chrome Qmee extension, all the ads just pop up automatically and it’s really simple to use – they’re also now doing online surveys.
User-Testing is a great way to make a bit of extra cash – and with very little effort involved, nor time.
You get paid to answer questions related to websites, while your voice and computer screen is recorded and get $10 for your time, (between 15-20 mins) or $3 for small mini tests.
As you can see to the right, those are recent tests I’ve done.
The two pending at the top are the most recent, as they pay 7 days from the day you took the test.
The amount of tests you get really varies, some days I will get lots come through, (typically that seems to happen on days I can’t take them!) or other days, none come in.
It will depend on your demographic as well and there is a mini-screening test, which means you will not qualify for all the tests you’re sent.
You have to take a mini test to qualify, but don’t worry – it’s pretty straight forward.
Just remember to speak clearly and talk through what you’re doing.
They’re looking for real people, so whatever stumbling block you come across in your test, will be beneficial for them to know about.
Also, if you don’t pass the first test, they do let you know where you went wrong and you can take another right away.
This site used to pay much more than it does now, which is a shame. You can earn small amounts by writing mini reviews, on music, homeware and fashion.
Sometimes they have additional review topics as well, I have seen kids toys before.
If you enjoy listening to music, then it could be for you.
But make sure you go for categories that have “bonus $$” underneath them, rather than standard, as you’re paid more.
Recently, after listening to music for 1.5 minutes and writing a few sentences, I had 8 cents, (that was in the bonus category).
Writing a standard review in homeware, which took a few seconds, (being a fast typist helps) I got 3 cents.
When I initially wrote my slice the pie review, I seemed to get around 7 cents for a standard mini review and up to 20 cents if it was a bonus category.
Now it appears to be more like 8 cents for a bonus category, 3 cents standard.
But remember, if you can type fast, they do only take seconds.
An issue is, they do run out of reviews, so once you’ve done them all you may have to wait a while.
Ultimately, it’s a bit of fun, but you can make a small amount from it. I’ve withdrew earnings from them without a problem, right into paypal.
You’re also giving feedback directly to clients, so you can have a real impact on changes they could make.
If you enjoy listening to music, you may also particularly like giving helpful feedback to artists.
But ensure you’re writing legitimate reviews that make sense, are carefully considered and unique.
They can be quick to ban you if they think you’re trying to scam the system.
I hope you found this little list useful and that it will help you make that little bit extra cash on the side.
They’re all sites that I’ve enjoyed using, have earned money from myself and recommend.
If you have any questions relating to the sites I’ve mentioned, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment below and I’ll get right back to you.
Although these sites are fun and a good way to make a little extra, they’re not going to bring enough money to pay the bills.
There are a various routes you can take online, to make more of a substantial income.
For me, I the most money I make online right now online is via affiliate marketing.
