the Top Five Ways I Earn Cash from Home

Money/Finances - Making Money
By: SaraL    
15-Aug-2015

Introduction:Being unable to work at a 'real' job for several years has caused serious financial hardship as well as depression. When I first started trying to make money online I fell for all the scams and wasted a lot of precious time as well as feeding my frustration. Over the years I learned through trial and error which were legitimate opportunities and which ones weren't worth the effort. I'd like to share with you some of my successful cash cows that allow me to get paid sometimes on a daily basis.

  • 01

    Copywriting

    If you have a decent grasp of grammar and creativity you can find a wide variety of companies willing to pay you to promote products, create letters or even answer questions. One of my favorite companies is CrowdSource and I've been with them three years. The amount of work they have available is quite generous and covers different aspects. The particular task that I tend to excel at are the product descriptions. For example I may write a 75 word description for an item that pays from $1.25 and up. This may sound like peanuts but when I'm able to pump out a single task in 4-5 minutes..it adds up quite quickly. They also pay via PayPal on a daily basis so at 10 am I always have something to look forward to!

  • 02

    ESL Tutoring

    I work for a company called italki tutoring ESL to people all over the world. You can either be a professional teacher or like myself, a conversational tutor. I've been with them about three years as well and besides being able to make my own hours and prices, the interaction with people from different countries is invaluable and rewarding. These are highly intelligent people who are just looking to brush up on their language skills simply by having a discussion via Skype. They pay PayPal twice a month and I've been very happy with them.

  • 03

    User Testing

    Many companies are looking to make sure their websites are what they intended before actually making them live on the web. This is where the typical user comes in, generally taking 10-15 minutes either on your pc or phone, you are given a set of tasks to follow while exploring the website. You must have a headset and cam as it is vital that you verbally express yourself while exploring. They want to know what it is you expect when you click a certain button, or if the layout is too complicated or busy. It is a very easy way to earn money and the average pay is $10-20 per 15 minute session. You can't beat that!

  • 04

    Freelancing

    Even though this is a general term, there are a few websites I favor. People are looking for other people to any number of tasks from writing a resume, writing code, designing a website or virtually assisting online. The pay is negotiable between client and worker and there is bidding involved. Basically you are competing with other freelancers who have the same idea as you do. If you have a talent, shout it from the rooftop! You never know who might be looking for what you have to offer.

  • 05

    Phone Apps

    Not quite as lucrative but extremely easy! Many companies will pay you to run apps on your phone to collect usage information as well as completing surveys. Some may feel this is an invasion of privacy but for my personal opinion I don't mind killing a few minutes while out and about making a buck or two. I have about four different apps on my phone right now and have received payments without question.




Final Thoughts

Simply put it sucks to be poor, especially when finding a regular job can be so difficult these days. I wanted to share my personal experience and maybe help prevent someone wasting their time and money reading emails or falling for a pyramid scheme..I've done them all! My motto right now is 'I'm a freelancer, I do whatever it takes to make money.'
I hope this has helped some of you, this is my first list so we'll see how I did!
