This is where it can all go downhill quickly. In the pressure to make as many pennies out of a nickel, a lot of research corporations will not just sell your answers but the data associated with it. Details that you provide when taking paid surveys such as your name, address, age range can all be attached together quickly to fulfill a lot of larger companies' requests for information (RFI).
I tried Mechanical Turk fairly extensively back in the day, I'd say 3-4ish years ago (very rough guess), and gave up once I realized it was impossible to make more than, maybe, $2/hr on pointless, tedious activities, stuff like inputting receipts for 15 cents. Is there more dynamic work available now? What sorts of activities do you find yourself doing there? Do the employers pay more now?
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.

I am so confused using this site! I made an account, connected it to my paypal, got UHRS 1 and 2-everything. On the actual clickworker website, I only see one job, comparing web search results. Somehow, I got to MarketPlace but wants to me "qualify" for each job. By the time I qualify, and go back, the job is gone...Am I even doing this right? I've been playing around for about an hour and when I went back to my clickworker account, I still have $0. Any help would be great!
You actually level up doing these, the people who post the "turk" will rate you, and as you level up, you get access to higher paying bids, mission critical stuff that cant be wrong. At first the jobs are seriously only about a nickel or 25 cents, but you can do them fast. The good ones can be a few dollars, but you can pound them out fast, dozens in an hour if you're good.
There's a few sites that I use daily to make roughly $400 a month for very little work. /r/beermoney is a lot of help for me. I mainly use Swagbucks, Perktv, Instagc, and Bing rewards. Swagbucks and Perk let you run advertisements on your phone to make $15+ a day. Bing rewards is done by using bing as a search engine and will make roughly $5 every 20 days per account with a maximum of 5 accounts per household.
Rewards vary based on the survey type and the company conducting the survey. You may get paid online through PayPal or a Visa gift card, or get free products so that you can try them and provide feedback. To get the best out of online surveys, it is recommended you join several websites (10 to 20) so as to give you sufficient invitations daily at the best time frame. Regularly check your email and be honest while giving your opinion. Don’t give up if you don’t get selected for a survey after the first screening process, as it will take a while before you get selected based on your demographic.
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.
Hop onto the iPoll survey site, and you’ll see a cheerful cartoon of a man walking his dog while thinking about products. Their boast is that thanks to its web, iPhone and Android platforms, you can complete surveys at home, in the office, at the beach, or on a walk. I put that to the test. This is one of the easiest to use survey sites on a mobile phone, and that’s because the surveys offered are sharp and quick, and the site itself is easy to navigate and use, whatever platform you’re using it on. This is a good choice for people whose online time is mainly spent on their cell phone.
Watch out though, I've read articles where drivers for these car services got screwed - They got into an accident on the way to a pickup. Their personal auto insurance wouldn't cover them because they were working for Uber, but Uber wouldn't cover them because they weren't transporting a passenger. When in doubt, ask your insurance agent to make sure that you are covered in all situations.
This online money making machine is becoming increasingly popular. Although it cannot be your primary source of earnings, it can add more money to your bottom line to a certain extent. There are tons of sites paying people to fill out their surveys just to collect some customer data. Among highly-recommended websites are Vivatic, My Survey, OnePoll, The Opinion Panel, New Vista, Toluna, Hiving, American Consumer Opinion. An online survey is an ideal option especially for students who look for ways to make money fast staying away from strict deadlines and fixed schedules. Isn’t it better to turn your monotonous holiday break evenings into cash?
After that initial "qualifying for the good stuff" batch of low pay jobs, it becomes more a question of your qualifications rather than number of approved jobs. It took me maybe two weeks from initially starting to get a decent batch of quals and good income. I very quickly had days where I made $50-$100 for 2 to 3 hours of work. However, I also had days where I made almost nothing because you are very much at the mercy of what is posted when you're working.
Always cash out as soon as possible, unless there is some sort of discount for saving up your points. Without a discount, there is no good reason to wait to cash out. You never know when you might get banned or a website might go away. Building up your points is just increasing how much you have to lose. The points are not yours until the money is in your possession.
Amazon gift cards and PayPal are obviously popular choices, so naturally like most sites MySurvey had those. These guys did not stop there though. At the time of writing (I double checked) they also offer various sweepstakes, gift cards to restaurants, you can donate to charities like UNICEF through them, they have iTune gift cards, their very own merchandising products and also Starbucks, Walmart and Tango gift cards among many more options!
5. Sell your comic books. If you have an extensive comic book collection, check out the site ComicConnect.com, which is managed by Metropolis Collectibles, the world's largest vintage comic book dealership. ComicConnect.com touts itself as the largest online vintage comic auction house. You can auction off your comics on the site, but you can also sell comics directly to interested buyers. Best of all, site membership is free. The website takes a small commission – on average, 10 percent – for the comic books you sell.
$4 PER HOUR???/ there is NO way this is possible please show us your math for this! unless something has changed drastically those 6 apps from SB are capped at earnings that MIGHT get you a total of 60 CENTS a day - and engagemeTV is limited to 3 devices - and you MIGHT make 50 CENTS to $1 PER DAY on some of the BETTER sites than SB - is this that new common core math you are doing????
Toluna. Unlike many other sites, Toluna lets users pick the topics of their surveys, such as electronics or travel, which made the work more interesting. However, this perk didn’t make up for its low pay. Upon converting points to cash, we earned only 71 cents per hour — one of the lowest rates of all the sites we tested. Our five hours’ worth of points weren’t nearly enough to redeem the cheapest gift cards. Learn more in our Toluna review.
