Wouldn't it be nice to make an extra $100/hour on the side?
Here are a few ways to do that and some websites to go to if you're ready to get started:
Focus Group Sites
At Respondent, you can earn $20-$400/hour ($120/hour avg.) participating in focus groups.
These gigs are mostly remote and, luckily, not city specific.
They also have a referral program that pays $50 per referral if the person you referred participates in a study.
One place where you can find these gigs is at WatchLAB.
Here you can make $60-$150/hour (avg. $100/hour).
Usually these studies are city-specific, but many can still be done at home.
Updates for these gigs can be found on their Facebook page here.
Another focus group organization is Focuscope.
Here, you can earn $75-$250/hour ($100 avg. payout).
These focus groups are also usually city-specific, but most studies are remote.
If you want to get paid very well to read a script, book, or just about anything else, you might look into voiceover sites.
Voices is arguably the biggest voiceover job site in the market.
Here, you can earn $100 to $250 for around 30 seconds or less than a page of script.
National commercials for big brands pay the most, which is often between $5,000 and $25,000 per gig.
Audiobooks pay $200-$300/finished hour. Therefore, you can make up to $3,000 or so, depending on the length of the audiobook.
Or, you could even start out doing explainer videos, which are considered the easiest voiceover jobs because they are short, usually between 30 and 60 seconds, and they use simple language to explain a new idea or to introduce a new product.
No matter what kind of voiceovers you do, you can usually get very well compensated at a site like Voices.
Studypool, formerly known as Createpool, lets you make money by sharing your expertise in a certain school subject.
You can earn as much as $7500/month on the side just tutoring people, checking homework, and answering questions on the site.
Studypool will take 20% of your earnings as their commission and leave you the other 80% to keep.
Also, keep in mind that most questions at Studypool are pretty much all academic-related.
Plus, no experience is needed to apply, hours are flexible, and you get paid conveniently via PayPal.
