Another way you can make money online watching YouTube videos is by using a website called Rapidworkers.
With Rapidworkers, you can literally get paid certain amount of money to watch, like, comment on, or interact in other ways with YouTube videos.
You can also get paid to do things like follow people on Twitter, create an account on a site, etc.
Usually, you won't make much. You'll earn anywhere from $0.02 to maybe $2 for a quick gig that might take a minute or two to complete.
But, it is a legit option for getting paid to do simple things like watch YouTube videos or engage with a post on social media.
3. Traffic exchange sites
The third way you can make money from watching YouTube videos is going to involve you having some sort of online income stream.
So, if you have a blog, affiliate site, YouTube channel, podcast, etc., you can use this method to make money watching YouTube videos via traffic exchange sites or what some might call like-for-like sites.
If you have a way to make money online that you can drive traffic to, all you need to do is sign up for a site like Empire.kred and start watching videos other users post.
When you watch these videos or engage with other content, you earn credits.
You can then use these credits to run “missions” which allow you to pay people credits to engage with YOUR content.
This usually involves sending them to a social media post, video, website link, etc.
So, you can watch people's YouTube videos on Empire.kred, earn credits, and then pay people those credits to go to your page where you can collect subscribers, earn money from ads, earn commissions from affiliate links, etc.
You can also do this same method with a site called Viral Content Bee.
It's essentially the same process with a different site layout.
This method can actually pay you the most, depending on what kind of online business you have and how much you work it.
