Here are several more options that are basically work from home, though some paid shopping may be required! Each of these is recommended by an expert panel as legitimate options for extra money. The Internet provides incredible opportunities to make a little extra money on the side or to supplement an income. Homepreneurs strongly encourages you to take a look at these options.
1) Are you a shopper? Get paid to visit stores like Hallmark and Mattel and verify their displays and inventory are in order. A shopper can work from 5 to 20 hours a week, job-dependent. Find a position that fits your schedule by visiting the National Association for Retail Marketing Services (NARMS.com). Search the job bank and shop, shop, shop!
2) Do you have an iPhone? Download a free app from FieldAgent.net and become part of a national network of agents who are paid to answer different requests. You may need to take a picture of a landmark or answer a survey. The requests can be brief (minutes) and you can do as many as you want and earn $8 or more per task! Requests are sent directly to your iPhone.
3) Like surfing the web? Check out Userlytics.com/tester and sign up (for free) to offer your opinions to companies about their websites. You will need to have a web cam and microphone on your computer to create a video of yourself going to a site. For each 10 to 15 minute video, you’ll earn $10, and you can do as many reviews as you want!
4) Do you like to write? Online publishers like Suite101.com, DemandStudios.com and AssociatedContent.com will pay first time writers $5 to $30 for articles about knitting, baking or building a web page.
5) Creative or artistic? Visit CafePress.com and Zazzle.com and upload artwork, photos or catchy sayings to create custom t-shirts, mugs and more. The sites print items on customer demand and handle the transaction process. You are charged a flat rate of $10 per item sold, so set a price of $15 or $20 for the item and pocket the difference.
The Internet provides many opportunities to make extra money without the hassle of traveling to an office every day. Most of these jobs won’t provide benefits or a full-time income, but are perfect for the unemployed, disabled or others at home. As always, research the opportunity and don’t pay for training or “job kits.”
