You can run a Tumblr blog and still remain anonymous. It'll take a while to get going though. I have 2 friends, both running a blog. One runs it specifically as a femdom/kink blog and gets donations/money from people, another runs it as her personal every day blog and has gained enough followers that people just buy her stuff off her Amazon wishlist to be nice (got a dang Wii U like that!). Neither of them post any identifying information (although I think the kinkster blog one might post some body shots of herself on occasion).
Are you clearing cache between each offer? Clearing cache is incredibly important to getting offers to credit properly. Check out the Vanilla cookie manager. Even if you do clear the cache, some offers just don't like to credit. /r/Swagbucks is a great place to see what swagbucks offers are currently crediting easily. Since many sites use the same offer walls, you can probably find the same offers on another site.
One of the great things about Survey Savvy is that they really do offer a great variety of surveys to choose from, so you won’t simply be talking about the consumer goods that you buy on a day to day basis. They have surveys on topical issues and about politics in general, but don’t worry you don’t have to be a political animal to be able to complete the survey – you just need to have an opinion. Another thing I really appreciated about survey savvy is that their surveys are short and snappy, and you can complete them within ten minutes or even less. That means you can quickly earn the points that can then be exchanged into folding cash.
Quickthoughts is currently having an issue resulting in the ban of many users. They likely pushed a bad update resulting in their detection software falsely flagging people. If you haven't been banned yet, just take a break from it for a while so they can get things sorted out. If you were banned, you're not alone. If you want to share your experience, comment on one of the posts that are already made. Support is going to be flooded with emails, and you aren't going to get any useful information right now anyways. Try messaging them later on. This type of thing happens from time to time with sites. Just wait it out.
This site has some pretty good options for the skill-less. It isn't a substitute for a wage though if that is what you were hoping for - you will only get about an extra $50 a week with minimal effort (and minimal effort is what I would recommend - anything more would drive you insane). You could probably push it to $100 or maybe even $150 if you worked at it really hard but $100 wouldn't take twice as long to earn as $50, it would take about 5x as long.
Understand how a niche website works. A niche website focuses on very targeted, specific information. The content must be specific, useful and interesting to your target audience. Successful niche websites get anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 visitors per month.[5] You build content on a particular keyword, and you make passive income with Google Adsense or through affiliate links.[6]
Robert said he did an average of 4-6 of these gigs per year for a while depending on his schedule and the work involved. The best part is, he charged a flat rate that usually worked out to around $100 per hour. And remember, this was pay he was earning to advise people on the best ways to use social media tools like Facebook and Pinterest to grow their brands. 

There’s a decent rate of surveys pinged your way as you can expect two or three emails a day inviting you to fill in particular questionnaires. In addition to this, there are freely offered surveys on their cleanly designed website each day which you can look through and decide if they take your fancy. Surveys on CashCrate are often outsourced to third parties though, so you can make more money on the survey side from other websites. Similarly they are known for passing your information on to other people, so to avoid the irritations of endless spam, make sure you set up a dedicated email address for your CashCrate account.
Paid survey site companies invest billions of dollars into marketing research online.  They always want to find out more intricate details of a consumer's relationship with their product.  Whether it's a new television show or just an existing product line, companies like Disney, Samsung, and Sony go to great lengths to find out their ideal audiences.
Alternatively, you might need to register with HMRC as newly self-employed, but if you're just doing a few for fun, you might not. It's worth giving them a ring on 0300 200 3500 to check if you're not sure. You need to register, so make sure you do so by the end of the third calendar month after you've started – or you could face an automatic £100 penalty.
Have not worked as uber driver but to me personally it likely doesn't seem worth it..as it would be a 2nd job and at late night/early morning hours..which would likely be higher risk for road accidents. And the added wear/tear of the car along with dealing with unknown ppl in a car you driving...just for me the extra pay is not worth the extra risk imo.
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.
I also like Mechanical Turking but it requires you to enter your social security number because it is taxable income. You literally earn cash that you deposit into your account. I have been doing it for a year and it is completely safe and backed by amazon. Visit the Mturk subreddit and be sure to read all about it before you fire it up. The most important advice you will find there is to use Turkopticon which has reviews about posters there. It will help you avoid the surveys that don't pay that well. Keep in mind that there are other tasks that you can do like transcription and such so it is best to use the word "survey" if you want to stick to surveys. 

Many new users prefer to start off with the 100% Free Offers, which is what we usually recommend. These offers are great for beginners because nothing is required other than several minutes of your time. The payouts on these offers are lower, but you're not paying a dime to complete them and they'll get you use to the CashCrate system. After you've started making money online with our free offers, you can always move on to trial offers and increase your earnings.
1. Participate in a focus group. By joining an online focus group – a mix of people selected to participate in a discussion, often about a particular product, service or issue – you can collect extra money for sharing your ideas. Many companies organizing focus groups for market research pay the participants for their time. Where to find one of these focus groups? There are quite a few websites that aim to help people find paid focus groups, including SideHustleNation.com and FindFocusGroups.com.
One nice feature is the ability to shop through Vindale, as they often have offers available through affiliate links. Before buying something new, like an appliance, it is worth signing into their easy to use website and checking if you can get it for less through Vindale. There’s also a popular daily consumer survey paying $1.50 which you can complete every day, for an easy and reliable boost.
Congratulations go to Panel Place, which gets 2nd place on the Survey Cool list of the best paid survey sites for 2018, but just what makes it so good? Above all else is the fact that it has a very large number of surveys to choose from, so there really is something for everyone. It does this because it includes surveys available from a variety of other top survey providers, including Toluna and Valued Opinions. It’s available to users across the world as well, and payment can be made by way of a gift card or sent securely to a PayPal account. It’s a deserving number one.
With one of the lowest cash limits in the industry, you can get $10 out when you have accrued just 100 points. If you want to take your earnings in the form of a giftcard, the threshold is even lower, as you just need 50 points, equivalent to $5. Many other survey sites will only pay out after you earn much more, like $50. As with all good survey sites, Opinion Outpost allows you to take your earnings away in vouchers for big firms like Amazon or iTunes, or if you prefer money, to do so through Paypal. As well as paying out early Opinion Outpost also pays extremely quickly, often the same day or in some cases, immediately.
I am in a similar situation. I'm fortunate to have a full-time job where I work from home 40 hours/week, so I was also looking into ways to make money online. I found oDesk and Outsource.com to be helpful. I got a couple gigs just writing product descriptions and other menial tasks that didn't require a ton of expertise. A lot of the people hiring on there just wanted people who were fluent in English.
I am quite fond of SwagBucks Referal Link / Non-Referral Link. It has the option to earn about $1.00 a day just running aps on your phone. Plus there are tons of surveys constantly being posted as well as shopping bonuses and even videos to watch to earn. The SBS subreddit even has an amazing guide to get you started. The payout is in gift cards and there are plenty of surveys. You can even earn SwagBucks by using coupons. They have a lot of options.
I grew up dirt poor. I have tried to show this information to friends and family to help them climb out of poverty, but none of them want to take me up on the offer. They would rather sit around and complain that everything isn't getting done for them, rather than go out and earn money for themselves. So I decided to help strangers on the internet, instead. It gives me an altruistic sense of happiness and fulfillment to help other people who are willing to do things for themselves.

If you are looking for highest paying surveys, then you must join Harris Poll Online survey panel. Harris Poll Online is a well known market research company and has been in business for more than 50 years. Once you join Harris Poll Online you will have opportunity to participate in paid online surveys, focus group studies and paid product testing opportunities.
You can expect to earn $2-$5 for most of the surveys in general. For some special surveys you can earn up to $50 per survey but those are rare. Harris Poll also conducts paid focus group studies where you can earn $50-$100 per study. Usually these focus group studies are 1-2 hours long where you interact with other participants under a supervision of a focus group moderator.
Edit: I was paid about £25-30 per audio hour working for Take Note (on the lower end of the scale as I had no prior experience, and wasn't doing legal or live transcribing). Better quality audio files would take around 3 hours to type per hour of audio, but it slipped to 4-5 hours if the quality was low and if people talked over each other too frequently. It was about 50:50 whether you'd get a good quality file or not, and you generally have around 24 hours from the point of being given the file to provide a transcript.
In the USA, once you earn $400 of self employment you're required to file taxes. If you earn $600 or more with any individual site in a year, you should receive a 1099 from them. Even if you don't make $600 or don't get the form, you're still supposed to report any amount you earn. This doesn't matter if it's PayPal, Bitcoin, Gift Cards or physical items. It is all considered income because you are earning it in exchange for a service.
Survey Club has been offering online paid surveys since 2005, and in the fast paced every changing world of the web that’s a reassuringly long amount of time. They are a bit of an acquired taste, in that they specialise in long, detailed surveys for high end clients rather than the quick and cheerful consumer surveys that you may be more familiar with. Whilst this does mean that you may have to commit a bit more time, it does mean that if you have the patience to persevere with them they pay more money than most survey and reward sites. They also offer local taste tests (see what I said about ‘an acquired taste’?), and secret shopper opportunities.

One nice feature is the ability to shop through Vindale, as they often have offers available through affiliate links. Before buying something new, like an appliance, it is worth signing into their easy to use website and checking if you can get it for less through Vindale. There’s also a popular daily consumer survey paying $1.50 which you can complete every day, for an easy and reliable boost.


By filling out your user profile thoroughly, you’ll be able to make sure you get invites to surveys which are actually suitable for you. There are basic qualification questions at the start of each questionnaire too, to ensure you are suited to filling it out before you get going. And you can make the most of the huge Toluna community yourself too – if you want, you can create your own polls on the site to ask people about anything and everything! It’s a nice addition to be able to get involved and have in-depth conversations with fellow users.
I've gotten enough messages on this, so I'll fill y'all in. I ended up making $350 in about 3 weeks and getting the checks for it. The reason I stopped was because I got banned from the most profitable job when they changed the criteria and I missed 3 in a row based on that. No warning that I wasn't hitting the criteria, they just simply banned me from it. I was also on during a time that something like 40% of the data they were receiving was garbage from bots, so that changed everything.
Now, this isn’t about some get-rich-quick method here. If you want to get rich quick, forget about trying to do it on the internet. Sure, Facebook ads are all the craze, but without a serious understanding of the mechanics behind sales funnels and conversion optimizations, which only comes after years and years of in-the-trenches work in the internet marketing field, you’re largely wasting your time trying to “get rich quick.”
I have the links on the Facebook page, I don't have them handy as I am at work and just hop on Reddit once every couple hours.. If you Google the company names you can find the companies pretty easily.. also i included the sites for a few of the things above. For the major companies, Google them, go to their career page, and when searching for a job you search terms like "work from home," "remote," and "telecommute." I may be able to send you a few links tomorrow, but I am slammed after work today as well.
Idk if I was ignorant for not realizing how valuable markerboards are, but it taught me that some everyday objects you wouldn't think of could be pretty valuable. My friend found an old dentist chair that he sold for almost a grand when we explored an abandoned building. I thought it was worthless, or at least not worth carrying all the way back to the car. I was wrong but he took us out for a nice dinner and some beers with some of the money 8)
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.[9]
Most, if not all of these that I've listed are actual research companies that create their own surveys and use the people on their own panel for their own surveys. However, most of these also sell access to their panels to other research companies. So you might sign up for Global Test Market and many of the surveys you take are from Global Test Market, but occasionally you might find yourself taking a survey for some other company. Likewise I might be on SwagBucks but end up on a Global Test Market survey which means they've exhausted their own panel of qualified people but still need to collect more interviews.
MintVine is a cool looking paid survey site that makes it easy to complete a survey, without having to spend too long learning how to do it. One of the things I liked most about MintVine is that they offer a huge amount of ways to get paid: there’s the old favorite PayPal of course, but you can also choose Starbucks cards, Amazon and other gift cards, and even restaurant cards. Your surveys can pay for your next meal, and it’s easy to rack up points here. Some users have reported delays in receiving payments however, but this isn’t a scam and MintVine are working hard to speed up their process and iron our any glitches. If they do, they could be heading into the Survey Cool top ten in 2018.
Velasquez says our information could be used for questionable studies or sold to health insurers, for example. Or it could be stolen, which is a risk with any website that stores personal data. Most of the information we gave away seemed harmless — our shopping habits and travel plans, for example. But information like your birthdate could be used with other stolen data to take your identity. So keep that in mind as you’re answering questions. 

Are you looking to promote your site/link/etc along with the giveaway? Possibly; however, you must have mod approval before going through with it. Due to an incident users are no longer allowed to host their own giveaways in these cases. In order to do the giveaway, you must message the mods, and let them verify your prizes. They will also be the ones to pick the winner, so that an incident like that cannot happen again. 

Affiliate marketing is partnering with brands that offer a commission as a reward for your endorsement and referral. Affiliate marketers or resellers generally act as middlemen between customers and products. As an affiliate marketer, you can earn commissions by referring web traffic and sales through their own promotional efforts using a coded URL or web address to track each referral.

With over 20 million active members, Swagbucks is the premier destination for paid survey takers looking to earn money for giving their opinion online. Swagbucks provides access to tens of thousands of paid survey-taking opportunities every day. With every online survey, you are affecting key decisions from major companies and organizations. More survey opportunities means more chances to make your opinion count - and more earning potential for you! Unlike most other online survey sites, Swagbucks will even give you a bonus when you don’t qualify for a survey, meaning you never miss out on getting paid. 

Is your cash out taking forever? or Is the site just not working right? - Look on a relevant subreddit, facebook or twitter. If there is a problem, people will be posting about it. If there's no mention of the problem, try asking on those subreddits, facebook or on twitter. If you don't know where to look, just go to google and type in the website name and what site you're looking for. For example "Swagbucks reddit" will bring you right to /r/Swagbucks. This works for facebook, twitter, whatever you need. If all else fails, contact support.

The concept of data mining and profiting off that data mining isn't anything new.  And while some companies engage in some rather disreputable practices to do this, Global Test Market seems to be doing just fine with the whole “consent to disclose” thing.  More importantly, in some cases this may help you as some companies will offer to do more specialized product testing once they've identified you as their target demographic.

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 -
Survey availability comes and goes. In general, you can expect to have more work during the first few days that you sign up. This is simply because there will be more surveys waiting to be complete for a new user rather than for someone who is completing them as they come in. While this is typically the case, it is certainly possible for a new user not to have any surveys.
I’m sure this is helpful for other people but I would really appreciate if more bloggers would specify that some of these only work in the US as it get’s really frustrating to have to go through each and every single one to find that none of them work where I live. Please try add these in next time, but other than that you have a very good flow of information and everything is well structured. Many thanks.
As you can tell from the list, I just stick to the higher paying and passive earning places. I am far too lazy to give it the kind of effort you do. Although in my defense, I live in Australia so I don't have access to the high volume sites like Mturk. In fact, most of that is useless here - the only ones on that list that work here are Prolific, UsabilityHub, the Reddit subs and of course Ebay. Redbubble probably works too - I haven't tried that one. I use Teespring.
This site has some pretty good options for the skill-less. It isn't a substitute for a wage though if that is what you were hoping for - you will only get about an extra $50 a week with minimal effort (and minimal effort is what I would recommend - anything more would drive you insane). You could probably push it to $100 or maybe even $150 if you worked at it really hard but $100 wouldn't take twice as long to earn as $50, it would take about 5x as long.
I did this (UHRS) this summer, made about $230-300 a week, just clicking and clicking. It's definitely easy if you've got a lot of time and you can listen to podcasts or watch a movie while doing it. There's not always jobs though depending on what country you're from. For me who isn't in the US there hasn't really been any big jobs since the summer.

Those are my top two that I use every day. I run SwagBucks on my old Android phone throughout the day and the turk while that is running. However there is no reason you can't do the SwagBucks surveys. They tend to pay a decent amount and there are always tons available. I only Turk because it is cash to pay bills with. If you are just looking for a few extra dollars to spend on non-bills then SwagBucks works just fine. Plus no Social security number and taxes to do. they also have a variety of gift cards you can cash out with. They have amazon and walmart and all sorts of common places. I buy groceries with the walmart gift cards. I love how fast swagbucks adds up too.
The free site screens you when you sign up, asking a range of questions so you can be sent the surveys which will be suitable for you. You can also join up with a social media account like Facebook or LinkedIn instead of using your email address. Filling out surveys for money with Opinion Outpost will first give you Opinion Points – with 10 points worth $1. Most surveys will take between 10 and 30 minutes and are worth anything from $1 to $5. Typical survey time is around 15 minutes, and participants are also entered into quarterly prize draws, touted to be for $10,000! However some people think their surveys don’t come around often enough, and completing some surveys will enter you into prize draws rather than paying out cash.

When companies want to better focus their marketing, advertising, and product development efforts, they will contract with a market research firm to target their ideal demographic (for example, men between the ages of 40-60 who play golf), and gather information about consumers’ opinions on their product or service. You can read this article, to learn more about market research.


Considering that you have a finite amount of time, passive income should make up a large part of your work. And if you’re serious about generating any semblance of income online, then passive income should be one of your sole goals and ambitions. Why? Simply this. Wouldn’t you prefer to do the work one time and get paid repeatedly as opposed to relying on your time to generate that income?
