Demand Studios Now Hiring Canadian Writers and UK Writers

I signed up to get paid to write articles for Demand Studios in 2008. They offer an all-you-can-write buffet for writers where you can get paid to write articles ranging in fees from $3-$75 per article plus revenue sharing options. I got accepted. But then I realised they accepted my application in error because they only hired US writers. Sad face 🙁

I left my account in tact. It allowed me to get updates relevant to writing for DS and I knew that there was a chance that they’d eventually let their friends to the North in. Today I got an alert on the WAHM writers forum which led me to Deb Ng’s freelance writing jobs blog and sure enough, today was my lucky day.

I emailed Demand Studio’s Help Desk and they tweaked my existing account to reflect my Canadian status and voila! I can now get paid to write articles for sites like Ehow and others. At the moment my freelance writing and web marketing service business is smokin’ busy but it’s great to have DS as a gap-filler.

CloudCrowd Update – Get Notified for New Projects

If you haven’t signed up for CloudCrowd yet, there’s still work to be done! You can work right on Facebook as and when you want (so long as there’s available work) and get paid the next day. In my first day on CloudCrowd I made $22 and was paid in the next 24 hours by PayPal but since then I keep missing the available assignments. I logged in today to see that they now notify you via email when you subscribe to be alerted about new projects.

Another great thing is that I earned $1.07 yesterday without working because people who have signed up under me did some work. My earnings comes from CloudCrowd’s end, not from the people in my personal crowd. So conceivably, as long as you refer people, you can earn money.

The work on CloudCrowd:

CloudCrowd tasks vary. Some of them are: grading website reviews, rewriting poorly written text, categorizing websites, etc. The way I see it, if you’re on Facebook several times a day anyway, you’d might as well get paid for it 🙂 Join CloudCrowd 🙂

Make Fast Money Online for Christmas

Are you anxious about making extra money fast for Christmas? The internet can help. Christmas can certainly be a stressful time for families who don’t have much extra money for Christmas presents. I wrote an article for Momphabet Soup about the topic recently for writers and it is getting a lot of traffic so it inspired some more advice for those looking for more work at home ideas. I know you don’t want to be scammed and you don’t want to waste your time so here’s some solid advice:

Here are a few ideas for things you can do with your computer to bring in some fast money, maybe even in time for Christmas shopping:

  • Paid Answer Sites. You can get paid to answer questions. Some of these sites pay via Google Adsense so you might not have the money before Christmas but they could help you have money by January / February for paying off those credit card bills.
  • Work on CloudCrowd. Facebook has an application called CloudCrowd where you can get paid daily via Paypal doing rewrites, categorizing websites, reviewing other people’s work, etc.
  • Sell stuff on eBay, Kijiji, or Craigslist. You can sell items in your garage / attic, shop thrift stores and yard sales, for finds that people might be interested in, start a basket business, or start a wholesale business you can set up on eBay. Many businesses will let you set up a dropship account and do all the shipping for you when you set up a virtual ebay store or niche website and if you don’t want to sell something online, you can use the internet to help you advertise locally. Do be careful about meeting anyone who responds to a classified ad!
  • Sell products on Clickbank. Once you meet their distribution agreement, Clickbank pays bi-weekly. If you don’t know much about Clickbank, it’s not the fastest way to make money but it’s a very lucrative proposition so consider using it for your ‘get out of debt‘ resolution in the new year.
  • Make Christmas money article writing. Many sites and individuals will pay you to write. Demand Studios pays twice weekly, Textbroker pays 2x monthly, and you can earn money online fast at Elance. Askables is also in the midst of rolling out a writer’s compensation plan but in the meantime you can make Adsense revenue there. You can also sell articles on job sites and write for passive income article sharing sites like HubPages, Squidoo, eHow, Xomba, SheToldMe, InfoBarrel, Bukisa
  • With an Elance bidding account, you can do various things to get paid online. Payments occur at varying times depending on how you bid (even instantly or in advance) for online articles, admin and data entry work, programming, sales and marketing, etc. Elance is an online job site and can transfer money via transfer, PayPal, Elance debit card, or by mailing a check.

This is certainly not an exhaustive list of online money making opportunities but there are a few suggestions here to help you get going. If you have suggestions or ideas that have been successful for you, feel free to share them here!

Get Paid to Answer Questions

Quite a few sites want to offer people the ability to purchase knowledge and if you want to work at home, you could be answering questions for pay. People can buy answers online, they can view some of them for free, and they can get answers on their mobile phone, too.

If you’re looking to work at home and like doing online research, this could be something lucrative and enjoyable for you. Some sites offer revenue share and some offer paid services. Do beware that some places only offer pay if a customer is satisfied with your question.

Should you do a per question answering job or a revenue share option?

Up front pay might be what you’re looking for but be aware that revenue share options could result in passive income and might amount to more money over time.

Several Paid Question Answering Options:

Weegy

If you’re looking for a part-time work at home gig, consider joining http://www.Weegy.com.

Weegy pays about $0.20 USD per answer. You get paid via PayPal when your account hits $20.

WebAnswers

Webanswers.com pays with revenue-sharing. You can ask and answer questions. You get paid directly via Google Adsense so need your own account. There’s no guarantee with revenue sharing but it can have more long term earning potential if your answer is popular.

ChaCha

ChaCha.com is a popular choice and is said to pay ChaCha Guides between $3-9/hr for answering questions.

JustAnswer

JustAnswer offers a variety of paid questions for various rates and pays via PayPal.

AnswerGem

Answergem pays $9-$45 per answer. There are several levels of expert and clients can also pay to see archived answers so you can receive passive income here as well.

Askables

Askables.com is one to watch. They currently offer revenue sharing for those posting articles and points system for those answering questions. High points = more revenue share on your account. The site is also planning to roll out paid expert services as well in the near future.

Many won’t work full time answering questions from home but find it to be a nice sideline for a part time work at home job.

How Can You Make Money With Google Adsense?

Google Adsense shares ad revenue with publishers. This is a great opportunity for those that want to work at home part-time or even full time. The more publishing you do with Google ads on the page, the more money you can make online.You can sign up to be a Google publisher and make money from Google by utilising Adsense in many ways.

Here are some Google Adsense tips:

  1. Start a blog
  2. Join passive income sites
  3. Post on forums

Blogs

Bloggers can add Google Adsense code to their websites. By doing this, you can earn revenue when people visit your blog. Join a blog network and you’ll share revenue. Start your own blog and you’ll earn 100% of revenue made on that blog. Even a blogspot.com blog (which is free to start) can make you money.

Passive Income

Many sites exist that allow you to share in their income. By contributing, through writing articles, you can earn revenue on an ongoing basis. Sites like Bukisa, InfoBarrel, HubPages, and Askables all have such programs.

Forum Posting

Some forums even share Google revenue as well. For every thread you start, you’ll earn a % of the revenue on that page. In this situation your Google publisher ID is put into your Control Panel.

One of the greatest things about publishing for Google Adsense revenue is that you can publish something once and earn from it indefinitely. There are techniques you can use to drive traffic to your pages as well and this can enhance the earning opportunities. Do some keyword research and you’ll make even more money because you can research the high paying keywords out there and that can increase your income.

How much can you make on Google Adsense?

The sky is the limit with Google earnings. You do need to be very careful that you follow their publisher guidelines otherwise you can get tossed out of the programme and have to forfeit your earnings. Google doesn’t divulge their earning formula so that they can keep the programme honest.

How do you get paid?

Google Adsense pays publishers monthly. For every month that you reach $100+ USD, you’ll get paid in the following month. You can be paid via a cheque in the mail or through direct bank deposit.)

Success Tips:

Post regularly, check your stats so you can analyze where your money is coming from, be sure to create valuable pages, and do keyword research.

How to Choose Which Clickbank Products to Promote

Clickbank presents a great opportunity to work at home. In building your own online business, you won’t have to rely on someone else and your income can be limitless. Having several streams of income works well and after a bit of effort, they’ll be passive income sources that won’t require much (if any) action on your part. Affiliate marketing is something that I do, in addition to other ways I make money online.

How does Clickbank work?

It’s quite simple, really. You can make money online by directing people to Clickbank landing pages. When the Clickbank info product (usually downloadable, or, a membership) is sold, the person whose link was clicked to make that sale gets the commission. You use a hoplink that identifies you and triggers payment into your account.

The great thing about affiliate sales is that you’re not spending money to buy and resell items and you don’t have to touch the sale. You simply facilitate the sale of information products and get paid for driving traffic that converts.

If you sign up for a Clickbank affiliate account, you can browse the market place to see what products are out there. You can also see what the commission rates are, check out the landing pages, create your hoplinks, and sometimes there are pages set up for affiliates that have creatives such as logos, banners, and private label rights articles for you to use.

Hint: When you choose a product that offers support to affiliates, you can often be more successful at selling that product.

Browsing the Clickbank Marketplace

When looking at the marketplace, you can search for a particular subject, search by category, search by popularity, etc.

The Pitch Page

It’s really important to read the pitch page of a product you’re planning to promote. Does it appeal to you? Would you buy it?

Reviewing Products

It’s not a bad idea to buy the product you’re planning on selling. In fact, the affiliates who do that are going to have a greater chance of success.

By knowing what you’re selling you can have a greater chance of selling than the vast majority of people who are out there blindly promoting affiliate links for products when all they’ve done is read the pitch page.

It’s highly competitive and there are hundreds of products to choose from in the Clickbank market place.

Here are some tips for choosing products:

  • Look for products that are popular but not too popular. Clickbank gravity can be a difficult number to understand. The more popular, the more competition for them. You want to find a good mix of popularity and ability to compete. Though, if you’re a subject matter expert (or willing to become one) on a really popular product, you have a good chance of selling it.
  • Again, read the pitch page. If you’re not dazzled by it, others probably won’t be.
  • Look for a product that supports customers. If there’s no support, there may be a high chance of refund request, which will impact your bottom line profits.
  • If possible, look at subscription-based products. These offer recurring income.
  • Choose a product you’re interested in. That’ll make it easy to write articles and regularly promote that product
  • Look at trends. Google Trends is a great tool for helping you figure out what products are likely to sell.
  • Learn about Clickbank gravity. My friend Matt Bredel explains this well in his Tru Guru membership program.

Before you get started on your affiliate marketing journey, do some research about effective ways to promote your affiliate link. You’ll find a lot of resources out there that can help you learn how to maximize your potential through things such as: article marketing, pay per click, organic SEO, social marketing, and more. There are some resources on Clickbank itself, too. And the great thing about that is that there are 60 day money back guarantees if you choose to buy into a program that teaches you how to make more money on Clickbank.
