If you’re optimistic and confident, prepare to make plenty of extra money by doing some online freelance work.
Try these ideas to pick up some quick cash:
1. Consider your skills. Focus your efforts on your unique talents when looking for web work.
* For example, if you’re a fast typist, look for data entry jobs online. If you can spin a good yarn, try a writing job or two. If you’re a skilled web surfer, find research jobs to fill the coffer.
* Try elance.com and other popular freelance portals to find work.
2. Use social networks for meetings. With the advent of social media, you can converse with prospective employers. Ensure that others see your qualities through your social networking efforts.
3. Be brave. Diving in can be challenging and perhaps intimidating. To protect yourself, research the websites you’re interested in. If a website passes your criteria and appears to be reputable, sometimes it’s a great idea to simply jump in and accept your first online gig.
* When you do, you’ll be rewarded for your courage with some extra money.
4. Learn to do transcriptions to earn steady, incoming wages. Transcribing is an exploding online career. If you’re a competent typist, you’re more than half-way along the path to earning extra dollars by typing out interviews, dictated books, and other info.
5. Contact local businesses to offer them help posting on their social media accounts. If you’re an avid Twitterer and Facebooker, you could be paid to post regularly for business owners who don’t have the time or skill to do it themselves.
6. Look for websites who offer cash to endorse their products. Become an affiliate of popular companies like Amazon and post their ads (coded with your affiliate number) on your Facebook page. Whenever someone clicks on your ad and buys the product, you earn a commission.
* If you have a lot of friends who enjoy a particular hobby, find a vendor of supplies you can all enjoy. Become an affiliate, post their ads, and earn commissions on their products.
7. Utilize websites that reward you for shopping on their sites. It’s wise to be careful with this tip. You could spend more with your shopping than you make through the gift card reward. But if you’re planning to purchase a gift anyway, you could earn a few extra bucks this way.
8. Find a “micro-gig” at the website called “Fiverr.” What will you do for five dollars? Post it on the Fiverr website and you might get a few takers. Explore the website to get an idea of the tasks people want done. Then, offer to do those tasks.
* Think about what you can do easily and quickly.
9. Serve on a mock online jury. At Ejury.com, you’ll be paid to serve on a mock jury. Discover the experience of making a real difference with the other online jury members.
10. Do you have an endless thirst for knowledge and trivia? Put your curiosity to work and make a few bucks at Cha Cha. Seek out correct responses to people’s questions and get paid for each answer. If you’re a tip-top researcher or web surfer, Cha Cha’s for you.
