1. Get paid for being healthy
The health app AchieveMint gives you points for being healthy and doing things like walking, tracking your food, or taking health surveys. You earn points that can be redeemed for cash or Amazon Gift Cards. For every 10,000 points, you earn $10 and there is no limit on your earnings.
AchieveMint connects to the fitness apps you may already be using including Fitbit, RunKeeper, Healthkit, and MyFitnessPal.
2. Become a freelancer or freelance writer
Doing freelance work can greatly increase your income. Are you a stay at home mom with an English degree or a guy who naturally can find mistakes in written text?
Huge and trustworthy sites like Upwork have thousands of employers who want to hire for all kinds of tasks where you can write or edit about anything from technology to business articles. Get paid for every single article. Get a great reputation and you can turn this into a full-time job.
3. Technical freelancing
Freelancing isn’t all about writing. You can do everything from design, graphics, marketing, and web programming jobs from sites like:
Pick your payment on a per-project basis.
4. Become a virtual assistant
Work for someone from home. Virtual assistances (VAs) can do everything from checking emails and making travel plans to handling internet research or working for their small business. High-end earners can command $50-$100 an hour.
Share your honest opinions for everyday services and products you use with focus group companies. These organizations can improve their products on your feedback, and you get to make $50, $100, or more. Check out the 2020 Panel.
A friend does this at his local mall. He only makes a little side money doing the focus groups, but it pays for a babysitter and a night out occasionally.
6. Rate pizzas
Many companies pay you for rating local pizza shops. You just have to rate the place on the quality of their pizza and note their delivery time. For this, you can get a free pizza, plus $5. Just register on Trendsource and get started.
7. Review stuff
Write a review and earn anything between $1 and $50 per review according to the requirement. Yelp can give you some special invites.
8. Change your search engine
Do you use Google or Yahoo to search for something on the net? Now, leave them behind and opt for the Bing search engine.
Conduct your regular searches on Bing, make it your default search engine, and earn credits that can be redeemed for gift cards. You can earn as much as $5 to $10 per month. Tip: Just stay signed-in, when you perform a search.
Another option is Nielsen Digital Voice. Digital Voice is a part of Nielsen – the big company that publishes T.V. ratings. Just surf the web and you may be able to start earning money.
9. Data entry
Use your accurate and quick typing skills to enter information. Go through Craigslist or Upwork and find data entry and administrative jobs for yourself. These jobs can be easily done through telecommuting.
