6 Online Jobs for A Busy Body

Posted on 03 January 2017

With the new semester approaching, payments are as well. This means that you are probably looking for a new job. However, being a full time student may put restrictions on the hours that you are able to work. One of the best solutions to this problem is earning your money with an online job. 

But one thing to know is that online jobs appear very different compared to regular jobs. In fact, many of the best ones aren’t jobs at all.

Here are some of the more common online jobs and opportunities for college students.

1. SWAGBUCKS

Swagbucks

Basically this is a free site that offers you a bunch of ways to earn cash, gift cards, or other rewards. Answering surveys, taking polls, and doing simple tasks (like giving feedback about a website, trading in old video games or books, and even for playing games on their site). 

A friend of mine used them for months and have received multiple payments from them, so I can attest that it is legit. Now you may not become a millionaire with this alternative, it still beats washing dishes.

2. Get Paid To Watch Videos? (USA ONLY)

Think of how many videos you watch online daily. Now picture getting paid for viewing. 

InboxDollars (for U.S. only) allows you to earn money for watching videos from their website. The catch is within the ads, and in exchange for providing so many advertisements, this website is able to pay you. 

 

After signing up, just click “More” in the navigation bar, and then click “Videos” like in the image above.

3. Get Paid To Download An App

SmartPanel is a new app that collects anonymous usage data from your phone and you receive 5$ in exchange, and then $5 more for each month you leave it installed!

All you need to do is click the button to get the app and then you can get paid via paypal or Amazon gift card!

4. Online Selling

Most people know about Ebay, but there are other sites where you can sell online. If you have an eye for deals then this may be the option for you!

And I will just give you an idea that worked well for me:

For a simple way to start making money with this idea, download the BookScouter App on your phone.

This app allows you to scan the ISBN of any book and it tells you the prices that 30+ websites are willing to pay for that particular book.

You can take this into a thrift store or garage sale and find books that you can buy for 25 or 50 cents and then turn and sell for a few bucks and voila – you have a simple business running and some pizza money.

5. Get Paid Testing Websites

Many companies will seek feedback in results of their website use. 

This is where Usertesting.com comes in.  You sign up for free and then answer questions about a particular website, explaining what is good or bad, confusing or clear, etc. and then you get paid.

You have to be accepted and must be 18+, but the payments are 10-15$ per test which usually take about 20 minutes.  

6. Get Paid For Scanning Your Groceries

Have you heard of the National Consumer Panel (NCP)?

Well, they pay you to scan your grocery purchases with their Smartphone App.

Basically, as a member of NCP you help manufacturers and retailers make decisions on what products to develop or improve.
