5 Ways For Thrifty People To Make a Few Extra Dollars Online

Guest Post Author Bio: This post was provided by Picky Domains. 

Being thrifty means not spending money when you don’t need to and spending as little as possible, when you do. Reduce, reuse, recycle. But it should also mean making a few bucks here and there when opportunity arises. These online odd jobs won’t make you rich, but they are perfect for folks who don’t want to work hard but want extra monthly income.

1. Microjobs

Microworkers.Com, as the name implies, is a crowdsourcing site that specializes in small odd ‘jobs’, if you can call them that. A typical assignment is to follow someone on Twitter, to befriend someone’s Facebook account or to vote for a picture/video. These pay $0.10 to $1.50 per job and obviously won’t make you next Buffett, but why not pay for that mp3 track or Android game by clicking a few buttons while you are logged onto Facebook?

2. Online Naming

PickyDomains.Com has a better payout potential, provided you are good with words. This is a naming service where people pay $50-$75 for someone to come up with cool domain, name or slogan for them. That someone could easily be you. If your suggestion is chosen, you’ll get roughly half of the fee ($25 to $60) via PayPal. And unlike regular writing jobs were you get paid a fixed amount of money for 1000 characters of text, you can pay for your next steak dinner with just a good name you came up with on a whim.

3. Sell Your Photos And Videos

If you are a type of person who never leaves without a camera, iStockPhoto.com is a great way to make side income. Simply upload your photos onto the service, categorize your images and set the price. If you are a musician, you can sell your original work via iStockPhoto.com too.

4. Tutoring

If you are a college student or have a degree and have 5 hours to spare, Tutor.com wants you. You’ll be able to make a few hundred dollars each month, provided you are hired (only US and Canada residents with valid Social Security Numbers are eligible). Oh, and the most important part – tutoring is done online, so you don’t have to drive anywhere. Reliable high-speed internet connection and a PC are required. Sorry Mac fans no Tutor.com for you.

5. Write Reviews

SharedReviews.Com is a site where you get paid for reviewing books, movies, games and just about anything. All reviews must be original. There is not fixed amount, but rather you are offered shared revenue policy, meaning SharedReviews will promote you review and collect money from advertisers and then give you your part. There are a number of other sites that offer you the same deal.

So, have you found any sites that are good for generating extra income? How successful have you been? Please share.
