In the past year, I tried to catch Tory Johnson, workplace contributor on Good Morning America. Fortunately, I saw the segment that featured both of these legitimate ways to earn extra money.
1) UserTesting– this site offers an opportunity to review websites and earn $10. In order to make the cut for becoming a reviewer you must visit the site and record your review and complete a written portion of the review. UserTesting will critique your test review and decide if you can proceed for them. Once you are approved the requests will be delivered to your email inbox. You review the request and accept or decline the request. If you accept the request, you following the instructions on the scenario for the website, record your comments and complete the written portion of the review. It’s that simple. If the owner of the request approves your review you get paid $10 Cha-Ching. In this past month, I have completed 8 tests.
2)Sponsored Tweets-if you tweet why not get paid for it. If you visit the site, create a profile based on specific categories of tweets that will interest you. You set the price per tweet and wait for the requests in your email inbox.
