Here are a few of the best and legitimate ways you can increase your income by doing work online.
One of the best-kept secrets on the internet is Amazons referral program. This program, which goes by the name Amazon Associates, allows anyone to use a customize link to send people to Amazon to purchase from their enormous selection. Anything they buy within a 24-hour window will earn you a commission. This commission could be between 4-10% depending on the type of item purchased. The price of the item costs the same whether the buyer used a referral link or not! This program is a great way for a person with a large social media following or an active platform, such as a website, to make some extra income.
While less lucrative then some other options on this list, Swagbucks is a quick way to get started earning money on the internet. Simply sign up and in seconds you will begin earning virtual currency for doing things you already do online. Watching movies, taking surveys, and searching the web can all earn you Swagbucks. These can then be traded in for gift cards, technology, clothing, and experiences.
Upwork is the one of the largest freelance bidding sites. Many jobs can be found here ranging from writing to programming to data entry.
Making an account is easy and the site has multiple tests that help you prove you have the skills to complete a job. Payment is quick and the company’s built in escrow and time tracking apps help protect both freelancer and client from abuse of the system.
If you have a skill that involves a computer chances are there are people all over the world looking for help with that right now!
Slice The Pie
Slice The Pie is a website with a simple premise – you listen to a minute and a half of a song and write a short review, and you get paid.
More than that, Slice The Pie is a site that allows up and coming artists or record labels to get instant feedback on tracks for a wide variety of people. This affordable solution allows artists and bands to know what they need to improve and can provide them credibility when discussing signing with a record label.
Slice The Pie will not replace your full time job—not by any means. Payouts per song review range from 6 to 15 cents and the review has to be well written and specific. Participants will struggle to carve out anything close to a living wage so this site is best used as a fun distraction that you can do for a couple minutes a day to earn a few bucks over time.
