I personally invest anywhere from 20 to 30 hours a week doing these sites, on top of my day job. Some days I will make $20 all day, and others I will make over $200. I prefer this, as opposed to a second job, because I can pay partial attention to a laptop and 'clock-out' when I want to focus on family or Netflix, rather than having to listen to another boss everyday, worry about getting fired, and deal with more people. This works better for my temperament and my preferences.
Unlike many sites, Valued Opinions doesn’t offer you the chance to take cash rewards, at the moment limiting users to retail vouchers and gift cards. Electronic vouchers are usually with you within 24 hours but gift cards can take four to six weeks to arrive in the post. Once $10 has been earned, you can claim Amazon vouchers, Macy’s gift cards and Visa promo codes, among many other reward options dependant on your location. Surveys are said to be varied, but the gift card options less so, so check they are for stores you’ll want to shop in before you tot up lots of points.
Prior to that group, they had an online community for teachers looking for lesson plans. That probably sounds pretty random, but it's crazy the type of communities you can build and rally people around. If it's something that you're passionate about yourself and you want to connect with others that have that same passion, then an online community is something you should definitely consider.
Mainly conducting polls for governments, public bodies and the business world, Opinion Outpost is a popular survey site as unlike some sites, which require you to accrue a significant amount before you can claim your money, it has one of the lowest payout thresholds. You only need to fill out five surveys, earning a couple of dollars, before being able to claim pay, so you can redeem your money more quickly.
Swagbucks is legit, but they are sort of a middle man for market research companies - they aren't a research company themselves, rather they sell access to their panel (users) to other research companies as-needed. That's why if you use SwagBucks and take surveys you'll see different types of surveys (in terms of page design and layout) and notice that you're being redirected all over the place before you start taking the survey. This is becoming more common though. (And on a side note, because they're a middle man, they're taking a cut of the rewards - whereas you're maybe making 48 points (cents) taking a survey, people from other panels might be making 75 cents on that very same survey, or something like that.) Other sites that are legit, in no particular order -
I finally figured it out. when nothing pops up that doesn't mean you got it wrong. every so often (on that test, anyway) it will give you one that it knows the answer to so that it knows you aren't a robot. the rest are you giving what you think is correct and getting paid for them. when it pops up and says correct that means you got the control question right and it doesn't think you're fake
I did some transcription part time whilst I was at uni. You get given a recording (nearly always just audio) of a conversation which then you'll type up in a consistent format, word for word. You generally get paid per minute of audio, rather than how long it takes you - so initially it may take a bit longer than expected until you get used to it. Typing quickly (I think ~100WPM+ is recommended) helps somewhat, but it can't save you from a bad quality audio source.

Set up the site. Choose a website building platform, such as WordPress, Joomla or Drupal. Next, choose a domain name and web hosting for your site. The domain name is your web address. Web hosting is a service that connects your site to the internet. Once you have your domain name and web hosting, go to the control panel of your hosting account and install your website platform. Design your website by choosing and installing a theme.
Freelance work online can be good work, my company hires freelancers to proofread things and there's various other similar jobs out there like that for various other tasks too. Upwork is one such website for instance. I think they bought elance and they used to be called odesk, I don't like them too much, but you can see if there are other sites out there too. The challenge is getting steady work as a freelancer.
Yeah I agree that it's a high risk thing to do. I just think that it's a possible easy way to make money. I've made an effort to spread my risk and hedge my bets where I think that a game can go either way. It's certainly not for everyone but there is opportunity for profit. Instead of making one big bet, like your customer did, I like to make many small bets and then save some bank for in play betting to try to make up for any pre game bets that seem like they didn't go you way.
To those who aren't using this site already, Clickworker is one of the best sites to make great money. I average around 15-20 dollars per hour, and you could make that without much focus or thinking. The tasks are extremely easy and they restock every week. This is seriously the best site I've used so far and even beats mturk because there are jobs available at all times. Make sure that you sign up for "UHRS web entry" because that is where you will most of your money.
