There are dozens of other survey sites out there. These just happen to be the more well-known ones that have a reputation for paying out in a timely manner/not having impossible standards for cashing out. As always, be careful with your personal information. I recommend using an entirely separate email address for survey sites so you don’t clutter your inbox.
You can find examples of sponsored posts and how Instagrammers integrate brands into their story by searching up #sponsored on Instagram, like this one from How He Asked, an account that shares wedding proposal stories and partners with a jewlery business:
An excellent place to start your own website is with Bluehost. It only costs $3.95 a month and you can start creating content with 15 minutes! It doesn’t matter what you write or record videos about, this is a legitimate way to earn money from home.
If you enjoy this type of work, consider starting an Etsy store. One of my wife’s friends felt staying home with her two boys was great, but she missed having an artistic outlet. She researched what was popular on Etsy and started making artistic versions of people’s photos. It only took a few months for her shop to become as busy.

One of our secret weapons is called Paribus — a tool that gets you money back for your online purchases. It’s free to sign up, and once you do, it will scan your email archives for any receipts. If it discovers you’ve purchased something from one of its monitored retailers, it will track the item’s price and help you get a refund anytime there’s a price drop.
Did you know that English speakers are in high demand in Asia? As a result many are turning to freelance English teachers using websites like Italki.com. The site is basically a virtual online classroom for freelance teachers and students. Anyone can offer lessons (and set their own price), and anyone can take lessons. From a quick scan, it looks like making $15 to 20/hour is a fair expectation.
Then head to our active competitions page to enter other free competitions that we have found. Just note that some of these sites may send you spam so use an alias email address and opt-out of as many of the offers as possible.

You probably have much more stuff than you realize. According to The National Association of Homebuilders, the average house size in 1973 was 1,644 square feet. That grew to 2,624 square feet in 2014. Clean the dust, sort out your storage closet, and put up a garage sale.

The default price is $5 (hence Fiverr..), but you can attach extra services to gigs for more money. Whilst it might not seem like much, it can quickly add up and there are plenty of examples of people making a really good living from the site. The key is to get a system in place which minimises the time spent on each gig.

We sometimes use affiliated links which may result in a payment following a visitor taking action (such as a purchase or registration) on an external website. This helps keep Save the Student free. The user experience shouldn’t be any different, and our editorial decision making is not effected by such links.
You don’t have to work in a doctor’s office to use your medical knowledge. Healthcare is a large piece of the American economy and the various medical providers and insurance companies have outsourced the coding and billing process to work-at-home people to minimize administrative costs.

Watch other people’s kids along with your own. There’s a good chance your friends who work outside of their homes would be thrilled to have an experienced parent watch their children while they are at the office. It can be manageable if your friend in need has only one or two kids. Plus, the new playmates will help keep your children occupied for a few hours. Pay varies widely based on where you live and the ages and number of kids you’ll be watching, but babysitters and nannies typically can make up to $10 an hour in small cities and much more – even double that hourly rate – in larger cities.
If you do any amount of shopping online, you will most likely be able to start earning a “Big Fat Check” or PayPal cash for each purchase made. The only additional step you need to take is visiting the Ebates store first or clicking the red button with the Ebates browser extension.

Scott is brilliant with finances and has the technical skills and experience to get his extremely helpful advice out to all. He is a generous soul wishing to pass along his good fortune to others in the form of what one can do for one’s self in the murky world of finances.”– A. Marie
LendingClub is the largest peer lending platform that will let you invest in loan applications since 2007. Credit ratings vary from A to G, which is least risky to most risky respectively, just like the risk assessment rating for bonds.
One method is being an affiliate at a mega-site such as Amazon.com, where commissions are up to 25 percent. Anytime anyone buys a product you’re pitching, you get a cut. And you can choose from more than a million products, including gift cards or computers.
Secret Hopper is a relatively new company that invites beer lovers to secret shop at breweries and rate their experience. Were you greeted when you came in? Did they offer a sampler? Did the bartender engage you in conversation?
It pays you even more “kicks” for photos of receipts that include qualifying items you purchased in-store with a connected credit or debit card. You can also earn kicks for online purchases. Bonus: You don’t have to do anything; your linked cards will automatically apply your kicks.

A relatively new investment idea is peer-to-peer (P2P) lending. This is when you create “micro-loans” to everyday people that do not want to get a loan from a bank. Loans can be issued for a variety of purposes including credit card debt refinancing, business loans, or home repairs. Since you are the bank, peer lending offers a higher return than your current fixed income or bond investments.
As a nation, there seems to be more emphasis on locally-sourced food. You might be able to make money by selling farm fresh eggs. This is a potential income stream whether you live in a rural area or even in an urban area. Just make sure your HOA will let you keep chickens in your yard before buying a coop. If you have the acreage, you might also consider selling fresh beef, chickens, and pork as well.
If you’re big enough, chances are brands will find you. But you can also look for brands to work with that are on a similar level in terms of personality and values, so your audience won’t feel like you’re “selling out”.
What you do will depend on the needs of the business. It can be for a corporation or even for a self-employed project manager that simply doesn’t have the time to keep up with the day-to-day paperwork and doesn’t want the pile in his office to grow to the size of Mt. Everest.
There are a variety of tasks, but most commonly they involve mindless data entry, web research or form filling. You are rewarded and paid in cash (via Paypal) for the work you do, and you can choose for what and when you work. Give it a go. [If you’re US based, also try Amazon’s ‘Mechanical Turk‘].
My wife sold some Kate Spade purses that she no longer used and made much more by using Ebay than trying to sell locally. She started by asking a very low price for the purses and the bidding drove the price up much higher than she expected.
Along the same lines as starting your own blog, if you haven’t gathered by now, writing quality content for viewers is worth a lot of money. To the tune of several hundred dollars for a 3-4 page article.
LOVE Scott’s energy! Business/money can be a pretty dry and boring topic depending on who’s doing the talking and that is definitely not the case with Scott. Keeps me engaged and motivated. Also, what an awesome ‘radio’ voice. Highly recommend!”– Britany Felix
