As a consequence of the global financial crisis last year, many people were unfortunately laid off and were without a steady stream of income. Amidst the search for new jobs, many people found websites online that would pay money for there services. Although the income isn't enough to pay the bills and put food on the table, it can certainly come in handy. So if you want to make money online now, try the websites I recommend below.
The first website that I stumbled upon was aptly named 'mylot'. Now this website is great for people who love posting on web forums and socialising on Facebook and other social networking sites. Mylot will pay for you to post discussions and when you respond to discussions posted by others. The website is easy to navigate, and once you've signed up as a mylot member all that is left is to type a way with quality reasonably long responses to discussions. The website uses an algorithm to calculate how much your responses are worth, anything from half a cent to three cents can be earned from a single post. Although this doesn't sound like much, it can add up and you can make new friends during the process. You can be more successful if you divert most of your time from Facebook and other forums into mylot. Payment is made through your PayPal account.
Another form of making money online is through writing articles. Draw on your mini journalist/writer inside of you, and write quality articles about topics ranging from a movie that you recently saw to advice on relationships. I recommend Buksia, Associated Content and InfoBarrel. These websites pay approximately $1.50 per thousand views. You'd be surprised how quickly this happens, although this depends on the popularity of the topics you write about and your writing quality as depicted by your rating. As your rating voted by your fellow writers goes up, so does your income per thousand views.
The third form of making money online is through websites like eBay or Amazon. This avenue of making money online is more profitable than the other options I have mentioned. However, with more monetary gains comes higher risk. Some popular items like Ipods etc are sold fast, with a lower profit margin, whilst long play records sell slowly but often with higher profit margins. Therefore, one needs to manage their inventory closely.
In order to make money online now all that is required is persistence, effort and great time management skills. If you leave a few hours of your busy lives and persist at these avenues, you can make a few extra dollars a week that can be used to pay for new clothes, chip into that god forsaken credit card bill or put towards your dream holiday.
