So I decided to make a list of the top earning sites that have worked for me and pay legitimately. But before we get to it, it might be worth getting a few things out of the way:
I'm a content writer and hence, I'm writing from a content writer's perspective. But anyone and everyone can join and earn from the sites that I'm mentioning in this post.
I'm assuming that everyone here knows about sites like oDesk, Fiverr, PostLoop and iWriter. Everything has already been said and done about these sites so if you're looking for information about them, GOOGLE IT!
All the sites that I'm mentioning in this thread pay by PayPal. When, how? You'll know all about it once you join them.
All these sites accept users from anywhere around the world. So no matter where you are from, JUMP RIGHT IN!
Okay, so here it goes...
1. BoostCTR: BoostCTR is currently my favorite earning method. At Boost, you get paid to write AdWords, Bing and other kind of ads and believe me, it isn't half as hard as it sounds. The ads are 70 characters in length and it is all about being a wordsmith; being able to give consumers the information in the shortest possible way.
The pay is great too and once you get the hang of it, you could easily be making anywhere from a $100 a month to a grand or more.
2.InfoArmy: I found out about InfoArmy a few months ago. It, sadly, didn't work out for me but who knows, it could work for you.
It is basically a research job where you have to find information about companies and put them into appropriate fields, finally, making it into a report for InfoArmy. There are a few things to be figured out about the payment system - 2 levels of researchers - both being paid differently, rev. share, etc.
3. SquadHelp, CrowdSpring, PickyDomains: These are crowdsourced contest sites where content writers can get paid to suggest names, taglines and even write content.
I'm yet to win a content at these sites but I know for a fact that these sites are legit and they pay.
4. Enroll: It has only been a few hours since I signed up with Enroll but I'm having a lot of fun. This is basically a design/usability testing website where you have to give your opinion on which design is better and why.
The pay isn't great but for the job that you're supposed to do, it is well worth the effort. You can sign up at EnrollApp.com.
5. PaidForumPosting: I put PaidForumPosting at the end of the list because some of you might already know about them. Also, I was kinda short of ideas...
Other than PostLoop, this is the next big name in paid forum posting and while I'm not a member of it, I'm told that the users get paid up to 20Â¢ per post. Obviously, not everybody gets in.
If you feel like you can post in perfect English grammar and provide great content, it might be a good idea to give it a try. Yes, you'll have to go through a test here too (like PostLoop).
I know that we're at the end of the list but I just want to mention a few other sites that couldn't make it.
Knoji: This used to be one of my favorite sites, not as an article writing site, but for Coupon Sharing, Q&A, etc. Sadly, it seems to be going through a bad phase right now and it might not be a good idea to sign up just yet. But it made up for some very impressive passive income for me in the last year so keep checking with it to find out if it makes a comeback.
Search Engine Eval: For freelancers who have the time to, you might be interested in checking out sites like LionBridge and Appen Butler Hill. These sites have openings for search engine evals from all around the world and basically, you're searching for given keywords and rating the kind of content that shows up.
Moderation for LiveWorld: I'm a forum poster and I've moderated a few forums. I really enjoy
