Finding easy cash isn’t easy.
But finding hard cash to top up the rest is a necessary evil sometimes.
Hard, like time-consuming, and not very rewarding?
Still, nobody owes us a living. And sometimes, to top up my cash, I’ve tried some useful sites. Some of these require a lot of work for very little; but I’m listing ’em all here, and you can decide what you think is best! NB: YAAAAAAAAAAS, some of these do indeed have my own personal affiliate links; if this a big deal, you can always just go to the site homepage instead! 😛
This is potentially more lucrative than most survey sites; because you get paid in dollars, per survey, rather than credits you have to cash in later. However, in my personal experience, I’ve not had many surveys sent to it. Try it, but keep your expectations realistic.
Fiverr is not bad, but it’s not always easy to get a high rate for this stuff. And it requires more effort than Respondent.
Patreon is pretty good for crowdfunding, but unless you already have a large fan base (or rich relatives!), it can be tricky to make good progress.
For those based in the UK, this polling site might be an option; but in my past experience (haven’t used it for a while), it takes absolute ages before you actually get enough credits to cash in. Maybe that has changed by now? Either way, rather like Respondent, the frequency of surveys you get sent may have something to do with your various demographics, plus perhaps even data.
5. Slice the Pie
When I tried this, I didn’t think it was anywhere near as bad as Yougov (again, on far past experience) for time / remuneration ratio, but still a lot of work.
If you were prepared for something that might be a little time-consuming, this is better than Yougov (or less bad, depending on how you look at it).
6. Social Media Apps
If you’re using a social media app like Crowdfire, don’t forget about the special affiliate links they offered you when you subscribed!
Get paid while you browse? Sounds AMAZING, except you need to have at least two people join via your affiliate link before you can finally cash-in (hint-hint). 😉
