Perhaps your day job isn’t paying you as much as you need, or you have a little time after that to do just a little more work. Now, with the Internet at hand, you can easily find easy tasks to do online and earn a tidy sum of money by the end of the month. If you’re lucky, you might even make a second salary, which could make you all the more comfortable.
Here are 10 such easy jobs that you can do in the little time you have and make a decent sum.
- Part Time Ad Clicking
Nothing could be easier than clicking on ads to earn money. Here, you need to view the ads given to you for about 15-30 seconds and then click them.
- Online Surveys
Here’s another easy part-time option, which you can pursue in your free time. Here, a questionnaire will be presented to you online and you will be asked to give your opinion regarding certain products or services. Your answers are important as businesses will be able to spot the interests and tastes of potential customers.
- Play Games Online
Would you believe that by doing something as relaxed as playing games online you could actually earn some money? There are dedicated sites for this, such as InboxDollars, Gamesville, Swagbucks, Bingo! Zone and LalaLoot that follow this business model. You can choose from a vast variety of games available on these sites and play. It’s not uncommon to earn $10 per day when you start out and more as you get better at your game.
If you love playing Bingo, you can get on to Bingo online and play the type of Bingo games you want to every day and earn a dollar at the outset. As you play each day, the money increases until a winner is found.
At some other sites, you will be asked to collect tokens in return for viewing ads. Then, you can use these tokens to participate in all kinds of games which can also earn you some money. Besides, there are also daily draws worth a lot of money where a lucky winner is declared. Who knows–you could be that winner.
- Become a Captcha Solver
We all know what captcha is. It’s the image you see when you create an email account or enroll at a website. Its function is to control spam. No software can read the message contained in a captcha. To become a captcha solver, you need to identify these images and type the characters so that you enable an automatic sign-up. If you have good typing speed, you can perhaps finish solving 1000 captchas in a couple of hours. This is a low paying job, but if you love it, why not?

There are openings in general, medical, legal and media for transcription jobs. There are times when you could work by night, so if you enjoy a flexible work routine, this could be the right one for you. There’s a lot of information about getting an online transcriptionist’s job, so get online and see how you can break into this one.

This option requires some amount of persistence and hard work, but assuredly you will make money with affiliate marketing. If you search the Internet, you will come across many sites that offer affiliate programs. Join any of them and promote some of their products and earn up to 50% by selling advertisers’ products. You don’t need to invest in overheads like a brick and mortar store, warehouse, or even maintain products. Check out some of the best affiliate programs like Amazon, Clickbank, etc.
- Content Writing
One more way in which you can turn your talents and time to money is by writing articles and website content. Not only will it give you great pleasure to express yourself in writing, but if you can also earn good money, the pleasure is doubled. Check out sites like Indeed, Freelancer, UpWork and Lexiconn for content writing assignments.
While still in the writing domain, you can also blog your experiences, or provide help, tips or opinions on subjects close to your heart. You can also make money from blogging by displaying ads on your blog site, or by selling affiliate products or your own products or by paid membership.
- Online Consultant
If you are knowledgeable in a particular subject or field, you can monetize that by providing consultancy services online. Alternatively, you can conduct training sessions on Skype. All you need is your own website or a Facebook page where you provide details of your expertise and tell people how you can help them with your domain knowledge.
- Data Entry Jobs or Form Filling
Do you have a good typing speed? If yes, then there are hundreds of data entry jobs online that you could do. You can easily do this in the evenings or whenever you get off from work. Some good sites offering this kind of work include Snagajob, mTurk and Fiverr.
- Micro Jobs
Certain sites give out small online tasks that you can perform. These include conducting a search on Google, identifying an image, watching a video, writing a short description or review, among many others. Working at this kind of job for about two to three hours per day can fetch you a tidy income.
With the proliferation of the Internet, there perhaps isn’t anyone who can be without a second source of income. Everyone is endowed with one skill at least, so it’s easy to match that skill with work available online and monetize it. That’s the power of the Internet that we are able to harness today.
