do small tasks online to make moneyDid you know that you can make money online doing tasks?

In this article, I am going to share some of them with you and also what my views on this subject are.

Remember that all the jobs below will pay you to complete a task.

But I still think that the best way to make money online, in the long run, is to learn how to build your own online business that will bring you sales on autopilot.

Make Money Online Doing Tasks Like These

As you have probably realized by now, there is no such thing as a small task, as everything that you do to make extra money does take up chunks of time, and as far as I am concerned, time is money.

The idea is to make sure that the money coming in is worth the time that you put into doing these tasks.

Here is a list of some of the things that I consider fall into the category – do small tasks online to make money.

Paid Surveys

This can make money, but I don’t know anybody who makes enough money with this to retire on.

Don’t get caught up by these companies that you need to pay to join. Survey sites are free, and you shouldn’t need to lay out money to either do a survey or get a list of companies to do surveys with. Just Google survey sites and literally hundreds will pop up.

Beware though, a lot of survey sites don’t pay cash, only rewards. Make sure that if you do want to make cash that the survey you are doing does pay cash. Also, remember that in most cases, you will have to build up to a limit of $20 before you can request a payout.do small tasks online to make money

If you have time to do surveys, join a few reputable ones, and let them send you surveys. Just remember that sometimes you won’t qualify for every survey that you get sent.

My favorite survey sites are:

Mint Vine: They have lots of surveys daily, and if you don’t qualify, at least you can take their daily poll which at least gets you 5 points and it takes literally seconds.

My Panel Station: You can find them at http://thepanelstation.com.  They also send me regular surveys, but I don’t always have the time to complete them. If you have the time on your hands you may wish to sign up with them.

Advertising Sites:

Some advertising sites actually pay you to click on adverts and view them for a set amount of time. This takes up a chunk of time and doesn’t pay very well, but if you have nothing but time here goes:

ySense, which used to be Clixsense is one of the biggest and most well-known ones that has been around forever, and there are various do small tasks online to make money opportunities here. Many people are making money here, but I think most of the money they make is by referring to others. To find out more, click here.

ySense offers various ways in which to make money including surveys, games and clicking ads for cash, as well as by referring others to the site.

As an upgraded member you get more money for your clicks, but only upgrade if you are going to spend a fair amount of time on the site clicking to get paid.

Writing:

There are various sites that pay you to write for them. Writing does take a bit more time, but the pay is pretty good and it might be worth your while looking into this if you enjoy writing.

Elance.com is always looking for writers. Some of the others you can apply with are:

Blogmutt.com

Freelancer.com

Resumewritingroup.com

Freelancewriting.com

Online-writing-jobs.com

Scribie.com

So as you can see there are a variety of ways in which you can make money online doing tasks. Please comment below if you have any others you would like to recommend.

All the above jobs will allow you to make money online doing tasks, but I am sure you would rather spend some time building up your own online business, where you can earn residual income on autopilot for years to come. Otherwise, you will be forever swapping time for money.

  1. Great information and it is much appreciated. Making money online can be torturous at best. If you’re retired and want some extra money online surveys with reputable sites can be a good thing but for the most part it takes up so much time and may give you a posture problem sitting so much.The sites you recommend are good to know and will be interesting to peruse. Making big bucks online is almost impossible with surveys and advertising clicks. I like the writing aspect and for some it may do well for them. It is worth a shot to try but do not invest money when it really is not necessary.

    • Yes you are quite right Ronald. Why invest to make, unless it is in training or hosing of course.

  2. Hi Michel,
    I guess nowdays those online jobs that you discussed in your posts are like the other normal jobs offline. It is a great extra income but as you say it does not give you retirement. Meaning that building your own business should provide you with resources to accomplish your dreams. And that is what we all crave for, isn’t it?
    Yes it does take time and effort to build an online business, but it is all worth it in the end. As you say getting sales on autopilot…:)
    Thank you for sharing this article and resources.

  3. Personally, I’ve tried a lot of cash reward websites like Swagbucks and also other survey sites to make some money online but it’s just small amounts of “pocket-sized” money at the end of the day. However, the real opportunity lies within generating referrals for these types of programs because that’s where the real money comes from on the internet.

    Why participate in small tasks when you could earn money from others who do the tasks instead? It makes more sense and frees up your time 🙂

    However, like you say, they aren’t small tasks at all since you sacrifice a lot of your time filling in surveys and browsing the web.

    I’ve tried clicking websites too and I really do hate them because I could be doing something more productive that “actually” makes me money, such as building an online business.

    I prefer your #1 recommendation!

  4. Most of the methods you have talked about with making money I’m aware of and like you I would also agree that other than freelance writing the money would be slow.

    The amount of work required to do PPC and Surveys I would not find worth my time and as you also mentioned learning and having your website would be the best choice and route to follow.

  5. I am fascinated by these survey sites and the watch ads to make money sites you mention.

    Not because I want to use them but because of the amount of time you have to spend to get any money.
    Having a JOB trading hours for dollars is hard enough, but putting in so much time for so little money for me is just not an option.

    I like others here believe that you are much better off to put that time into a business that you can build and own.
    A website for online income is what I personally prefer.

    It may freak people out when I suggest a website, but it is now so much easier to build these.

    How did you get started with your website?

    Cheers

  6. I can totally relate to this article about making money online doing asks because I tried it myself. I tried to enroll for paid surveys, but in my experience it’s not worth my time. I received an email informing me that there is a survey available. So, I clicked the link and start making the survey. Then after minutes if answering the questions, suddenly there is a notification saying that I am not qualified to continue with the survey. How irritating that was since I already spent time that just got wasted. Then I tried it another time and it happened again. So, everytime I receive an email about an available survey, I don’t pay attention anymore. I will be removing my account from that paid survey company soonest.

  7. Hello there, thanks a lot for sharing this wonderful piece of information here with us. I must say I really did enjoyed going through your  review as it contains valuable informations one needs to be aware of. I enjoy doing surveys and advertising sites, they have been earning me good amount of money recently

  8. I read another review before about making money from survey and exactly like you said, some pays by points and not cash. And even if they pay cash, you need to accumulate at least $20 before you can cash out. And there is also a validity period to cash out before it expires. And this means that if you can’t accumulate $20 before then, you run the risk of losing it all. This is quite a risky effort plus it pays low. But like you said, if one has lots of time, then perhaps this helps earn some side income. 

    And I would like to thank you for the listing on various channels to write for others. This is something I would like to explore further. Would you happen to know how much do they pay, or does it basically varies on the credibility of the writers? But I guess I can go into each site to figure it out. Thanks for the article!

    • Thanks for stopping by Richard. I think most of the article sites pay you more once you have been writing a while. They all have their different levels of pay from beginner writer to expert, and you can work your way up over time and earn more.

  9. Thanks for sharing this information about how to make money online doing tasks. I have to say that in this economy, we all have to do all it takes to make extra cash during this uncertain time. 

    Thanks for sharing tips on Ysense, I’ve just clicked on your link and will sign up with them. I will check out all of those writing sites as well. Thanks again, as this is really helpful! 

    • These are all ok to make a bit of money quickly, but never underestimate the power of building your own online business from scratch. You can find out how here. It may take longer, but at least it will get you a sustainable income in the future.

  10. Hi Michel, thank you for the information on different streams of online income. I do have to agree with you on the time vs money aspect, and also chose to rather set up my own website. 

    I clicked in the link below the article about building your list, because my website is brand new, growing a list was something I have been giving thought to lately. 

    I went ahead and bookmarked the 30 minute workday article, as this is something I’m definitely interested in, thank you again.
