Okay, first off; you’re not going to make anywhere near a living wage off these websites. These sites really are “Little Online Earners” and you can start a nice Holiday fund or a rainy day fun with them. However, you’re not going to get rich using these sites and you shouldn’t put in full time hours trying to.
You CAN find online jobs that do provide a living wage. Getting those jobs depends on your skills and abilities, but this eBook isn’t about that. We’re here to talk about little earners that only take up a few minutes of your day at a time.
The benefits of these little earners are numerous. Like I said above you can start a rainy day fund, but really the money can be used for anything. Tuck the money away for a special treat from time to time. You could also save th
e money to go on that long overdue vacation. That’s the joy of these little earners.
It’s Extra Money.
Through the following chapters I’ll give a brief rundown of each site, money making tips and a few must do’s for prep work before you get started.
So let’s get started!
Prep Work Must Do’s
You are going to be using your email to sign up for these online earning sites. That means these sites will have your email address to send you notifications and offers. That’s okay. It’s just part of the business. This does mean that your inbox could easily get flooded, making it hard to spot more important emails from work, family and friends.
To avoid all the inbox chaos all you have to do is create an email address just for your online earning sites. It doesn’t have to be fancy. Most free email hosting sites will work. Below is a list of free email sites you can sign up for.
Almost every site in this eBook offers payouts through PayPal. Those that don’t offer a check or Visa Gift Card. Through PayPal you’ll have the most options to use the money you earn. PayPal offers bank linking so you can transfer money to your account. There is also a PayPal app that allows you to pay in store with your phone directly from your PayPal account.
Sign up for PayPal account using the same email address you use to sign up for the online earning sites. This will make it easier to keep up with everything and keep your personal email address more private. If you already have a PayPal account go ahead and setup a second one. You can always transfer money from the new account into your primary account. Plus, transferring money from one account to another is free if you choose the “Send Money to Family and Friends” option.
It might not seem that important but it really is. The cyber world has grown attached to profile pictures. It offers the user an identity and gives other users an image to place with someone. While these earning sites don’t really have a big community, if they have one at all, it’s important to have a profile picture uploaded. Some sites payout credits or points just for uploading the profile image.
It’s a good idea not to put up an actual picture of yourself on these sites. I haven’t heard of anyone being targeted or recognized because of profile pictures, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen.
Instead find a free image online and make it yours. It could be a picture of a cute cat or a spying wolf or even just a funny little image of whatever. You can pick one at random or give it some thought so that it shows a bit of your personality. It’s up to you.
Here are a few free image sites you can find free images:
- Free Stock Photos.com
- Stock Free Images.com
Yep, I recommend logging the work you do on these sites. This may seem like more work than you’re willing to do for little online earners, but it helps. Believe me.
It really doesn’t matter how you do this. Use a notebook, Excel or some other spread sheet program. As long as you have the sites you sign up for wrote down somewhere.
Spend a few weeks or a month working on these sites. When you get a payout log it. If you find a new site and sign up for it log it. If you have trouble remembering emails and passwords log them too. This will help you keep track of everything in one place.
Logging your payouts will also help you keep track of which sites work best for you. Not everyone is going to earn the same amounts on these sites. You may prefer making the extra money watching videos or you may do more surveys. The earnings are going to differ and if a site just isn’t worth your time you shouldn’t put more time into it.
Little Earning Sites
That’s a list of six sites you can sign up for and earn extra money. I use every one of these sites to differing degrees. They have all played a part in my rainy day fund. I’ve also used them as a Holiday Fund too. I managed to tuck away a little more than $200 in less than three months for gifts one year while I was still working my full time job. (Note: That took a good bit more time than my current hour a day)
Each one is different and offers several ways to make pocket money.
I’ll include a reference link or code with each site. That code or link means that when you sign up I sent you to the site. Those will be explained a bit later, but I do ask that you use my code or link if you do sign up for these sites. It puts a little more money in my pocket without taking any from you. Some of the sites even reward you for using a reference code.
So thanks in advance! 🙂
Tune in later for Pt 2!
