I have been unemployed for some time now and recently got to the point where my state's unemployment checks just don't cover it all. So over the past month or so I have been seeking online money-making techniques to help out a little bit. I will probably do a few posts on this, but what is below are sites I trust, use, and actually pay and my reviews of these sites.
Survey Spot - This is my favorite site out of all of them. I have made around $60 in less than 3 weeks. They pay via PayPal practically instantly. They have many surveys each day, but only send around 2 e-mails/day. Their point system is 100 points = $1.00. Most surveys are 50 points, but they have surveys up to 500 points about once a week. I qualify for most surveys and I hit this site everyday and keep hitting the "Take Another Survey" button until I run out. They do not have a referral program.
Lightspeed Panel - Another good panel that pays via PayPal. I qualify for around 75% of the surveys that pay generally 75-150 points each. 1100 points gets you $10 via PayPal. This is also a survey site that pays moderately. I have cashed out $20 so far and am quickly approaching another $10 to make it $30 total over the past few weeks. It does take a few days (nearly a week) for the funds to reach your PayPal account, though. I have taken a survey that offered to send me a brand new cereal to try out, and I am looking forward to that. They will send me a full box of cereal and I will be paid extra to try it out for a week.
You Data - This site is ungodly easy to make money. You can easily make $1/minute. The only drawback is that you likely will not have much more than $1/day that you can click on. All you do is click on ads that are geared toward you based on your profile. They have a program you can download or you can just do this all on the site itself. They pay via PayPal every Friday.
Google AdSense - If you have a product to offer and/or get lots of views on your website, blog, or YouTube video, you can make money from Google ads. Look off to your right on this blog and you'll see some ads. Almost nobody clicks the ads, but Google pays you just for impressions. I also have a "How To" video on YouTube that has 24,000 views so far. You can see it here. It's not all that original, but enough people have viewed it where Google contacted me asking me to allow ads to make some money from it. If you have a unique ability you can make a "How To" video and perhaps make money from that. You can even learn something from YouTube and create an equally good video and make money from that. The only drawback is that you have to rake in $100 before they payout.
I have tons of other sites I use to make money and will likely write about them soon. For now, this should be a good start. Please feel free to comment and ask questions, I'll be glad to answer any.
