A mock jury is basically a fake jury for a case that a lawyer can try different strategies with to practice for a real case.

14. Link Able

With Link Able, you can get paid an average of $375 per backlink you get for clients.

Backlinks are basically when one website links directly to another, usually within a blog post.

This sends signal to Google and other search engines that the content being linked to must be high quality and therefore can help it rank higher in search results.

This results in more traffic and revenue for the website that gets higher rankings.

Because backlinks can be such a big help in ranking content, site owners will pay a premium to people who can get them.

At Link Able, you can get matched with brands that want more backlinks and will pay well for them (some will pay as much as $1000 each).

15. Real Python

At Real Python, you can get paid around $300 per article to guest post articles about python, web development, data science, productivity, psychology, careers, and a lot more.

For instance, you could earn $302.50 for a 5500-word article.


This site is a focus groups job board.

Here, you can sometimes find focus group studies or surveys that will pay you $300 each.

The pay can range anywhere from maybe $50-$500 or so per survey you participate in.

It can be a great way to make some extra money on the side if you're located in the U.S.

18. User Interviews

Another place to make money doing surveys is at User Interviews.

They are looking for people who can write about both front-end and back-end web development.

They accept articles about PHP, Ruby, server-side JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, document-based database systems, and other web development-related topics.

A “quick tip” (a shorter tutorial), pays $100.

If you contribute an in-depth tutorial, however, you’ll be paid $250.

21. Voices

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.

Here's a page with a breakdown of how much you can make.
