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:
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.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.com is a popular choice and is said to pay ChaCha Guides between $3-9/hr for answering questions.
JustAnswer offers a variety of paid questions for various rates and pays via PayPal.
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.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.
