Income Idea 1 – Online Surveys
You won’t retire from this strategy, but this is a GREAT, easy and most importantly… FUN way to get some free cash. You basically find some sites online that pay you to take surveys on various topics such as wine, beer, shaving products, restaurants (yes, crazy I know) and other consumer items. Corporations need your input and they are willing to pay for it.
I have personally participated in this strategy and made some money and it is unbelievable how easy it is. There are many sites out there that offer you the opportunity to make free cash. Some survey sites will even pay you to join other survey sites!
I signed up for CashCrate which is a well known survey site. I get paid $0.8 per survey and I get an extra $0.03 just to login to my account and check in every day. I have seen other sites that claim payouts as high as $5 and $30, but I have not tried those yet. Slow and steady is my motto. Some sites will pay you in cold hard cash while some sites will be based on a point system that you can trade in for rewards OR cash at some point. I don’t know about you, but I’m a cold hard cash kinda guy.
Panda Research is also a well known survey site.
Some members on the CashCrate site make as much as $2,150 per month. Like I said, you won’t retire on this but you can make some money doing this. Membership to this site is free.
Income Idea 2 – Website Design
Put an ad on Craigslist or the Odesk website offering to design websites for a fee. Due to advances in technology designing webpages is a lot easier than you think. In some cases designing a webpage can be as simple as writing a word document and clicking a few buttons!
There are a lot of freelance sites out there where potential clients make requests for webpage designers. I see prices typically in the $300 to $1000 range for the cost of designing the website. However, high end web designers can command as high as $10,000. You can find, join and bid on projects online for free. Just do a Google search on web design projects. You could be up and running in a matter of minutes!
