6. Use Smartphone Apps

Don’t worry; with this one, you’re not talking on the phone but instead using its digital capabilities to make money.

Nowadays, online competition is fierce, so companies are getting creative with how they reach consumers. Instead of spending marketing dollars on traditional advertising, brands are reaching out to consumers in unique ways, like smartphone apps.

The great thing about using your smartphone to make money is there are actual customer reviews for each app, so you can get a better idea of which ones are legit and which ones to stay away from.

7. Paid Surveys

There are many legitimate websites where you can offer your opinion in exchange for cash, rewards, and sweepstake entries. While you’re not going to get rich from participating in online surveys, it is a fun way to share your thoughts on products and services, and you’ll receive compensation for your time.

8. Transcriber

Do you have excellent listening skills? Are you a fast and accurate typist? Then help businesses transcribe audio files into written documents. With transcription work, you’re not paid by the worked minute but, instead, by the audio minute.

A transcriptionist who is experienced usually has a 3-to-1 turnaround rate, meaning that it takes them 3 minutes to produce 1 minute of transcribed audio. Most transcription jobs are freelance positions, so you’ll be responsible for paying self-employment taxes, but you get to create your own schedule, and no phone work is required.

Here are some companies that hire online transcribers:

Do you have a thorough understanding of the English language? Do you enjoy learning about other cultures? Then consider working as an ESL (English as a second language) instructor.

For some of these positions, you’ll need to get your TEFL or TESOL certification, which takes 120 hours to complete.

Here are some companies that hire independent contractors for these positions:
