Here are a few of the best websites you can use to make money watching videos online:
At Rev, you can get paid to do transcription, caption, subtitle, or translation work.
With transcription work, you can watch a video or listen to an audio file and type out what is being said into a word document.
Similarly, with captioning, you watch a video and then type out what is being said, but then you have to sync the words with when they're spoken in the video.
And with subtitle work, you do the same thing as captioning, except you will need to translate the captions into another language.
You can get paid weekly via PayPal and get started without prior experience.
Here, you can also get started as early as 13 years old with your parent or legal guardian’s permission.
You’ll get paid $0.30-$3.00 per audio/video minute, depending on the work you do and how fast you do it.
On top of all that, you can also have a flexible work schedule.
