Many years ago, when i was a teenager i was obsessed with football, more specifically Leeds United. Sadly that obsession never made me any money back then. In fact it probably cost me a fortune in replica shirts, match tickets and memorabillia. Then, as i got a job and left home that particular obsession waned. Until now.

Clickworker is a site i’ve been trying out for a couple of weeks now and i still can’t decide if i like it or not!
What is it?
Clickworker is a site that offers a variety of small jobs that need completing on a first come, first served basis. The pay isn’t a huge amount but it can add up if the jobs are there. The main issue is that the good jobs can be sporadic and often when they are there everyone is trying to access them and the website can be buggy and slow. On the plus side there are often some very easy jobs that you can dip in and out of, i recently made about £60 doing simple tasks for a well known, image based company.
How do i sign up?
If you want to give it a try then please sign up with this link, i get a bonus.
When do i get paid?
Clickworker say they pay weekly but i have had issues with this. Firstly, i had to verify my Paypal account which i didn’t realise so i missed the first payment date, doh! Secondly i was due a payment this week but have had an email to say that due to ‘technical difficulties’ they won’t be able to pay us until next week <sigh>. I do know other people that have worked for them a lot longer than me though and apparently they are normally reliable payers. So i shall give them the benefit of the doubt this time and keep waiting.
All you have to do for your free cash is open an online bank account from a company called Monese. I find it really useful for keeping all my online earnings together in one place. It’s really easy to open the account and all you have to do is put some money in it and make 1 transaction. They’ll also send you a physical card for free.
Appen is my best earner by far and the work is regular. At the moment i am working on a project that requires 1 hour a day for 5 days a week. The pay is good, better than minimum wage in my country (U.K). Plus you can fit it in around everything else, you choose […]
Having extensively tested money making sites the one that wins my award for fastest payout is Qmee. They are a survey site that can be accessed both by phone and computer. There are always surveys to complete when i log on and seem competitively priced compared to other similar sites. The best bit about Qmee is that there is no minimum payout and it cashes out to Paypal very quickly, ideal when you are a bit short of cash at the end of the month.
You can also install a browser extension that will occasionally pop up links that can earn you 5p or special offers. It’s not a great earner but it does add up.
The downside is that the surveys can be dull and monotonous but it’s great if you need that little cash injection fast.
Available to UK residents as well as US, you will be paid via paypal where you convert to £’s on cashing out.
It sounds a bit too good to be true doesn’t it? That’s what i thought at first!
However, i have been working for a company called UserTesting for more than a year now and it’s one of my favourite ways of making money.
What is it?
The work is testing a website or mobile app to see how user friendly it is. It basically involves following a link to a live website or a prototype. You will then be given tasks to complete on the website. Whilst you are doing them you must ‘think out loud’, giving your opinion of the website and how easy the tasks are to complete. Your screen and voice will be recorded whilst doing this, but no images of you or a webcam is needed.
You will need to install UserTesting software onto your computer to complete the tests. If you want to take part in mobile testing as well then you also need to install their phone app.
You can also take part in live conversations which pay better at $60 but that’s not my thing (social anxiety!) so i have never tried it.
So how do i sign up?
Visit this link https://www.usertesting.com/be-a-user-tester and enter your email address. You will have to complete a test which will be reviewed and then hopefully you’re in. No interviews needed though so it’s pretty easy to get started. Sadly there is no referral program or i would be rich by now telling everyone how awesome it is!
When do i get paid?
UserTesting pay 7 days to the minute after you have completed the test. I have never had a problem with payments, they are excellent and very prompt. Sometimes the companies rate your test too but that is rare at the moment.
