Because the fee is so small but the task takes so little time, the strategy is to do as many of them as possible. However, be sure to read the fine print because many of these companies have a minimum payout, meaning that if you earn $8.55 doing 20 micro jobs, you may have to wait until you’ve earned as much as $50 to actually get your money. Read more about some of the pitfalls of this kind of work.
Great post as all ways. I’ve just started to work on some of my nearly dead sites. I found the Back-link Strategy from Pat Flynn, and have been half following it, so yes it works. I kinda worked out that I had only been doing half the job, by writing the content, and some basic social media links and pinging.. It is a lot more work then that, that’s for sure.
Ebay is a bellwether. It's been around since nearly the start of the online boom. But, like any other platform, success can seem fleeting if you don't know what you're doing. Selling items on eBay, professionally that is, can be an art form. Getting people interested in your auctions isn't always easy, especially when there's hefty competition and low demand for what you're selling.
Once you’ve had children, many parents find themselves caught in the trap of needing to work but wanting to stay home with their kids. Creating your own parenting blog can not only be a way to make some money, it can also help you connect with other parents and make sense of those crazy sleepless early parenting years (it does get easier don’t worry!)
Okay, that is all I have to say about Textbroker. I am sorry to sound so negative, but I strongly feel that anyone who is thinking about writing for Textbroker should know this ahead of time. Due to the nature of the editors on this site, I would advise anyone who is new to freelance writing on the web not to bother with Textbroker, mainly because I feel that the antics of the editors there can be very discouraging to new writers.
Thank you for the clear, concise road-map for building a successful monetized site without relying on spam. Since my retirement from teaching in 2012, I have been freelancing as a writer/photographer and have had some success, but my ambition is to have my own website up and running so that I can write for myself and still earn money. I have not dedicated enough time to writing quality content or marketing my website, but this article has inspired me to dig in and get it moving in the right direction. Again, thanks for an article that was worth reading and may you continue to have great success with your endeavors.
