Making Extra Money On Line

THERE IS NOTHING INSTANT ABOUT MAKING MONEY ONLINE

People do not think about making an online income until they are in a bad financial position, then they start to look into the matter. This is a bad approach to making money online.

    It is possible to make $5 to $10 an hour from working online, needing nothing but a PC and an internet connection - AND YOUR SKILLS.  Some skills are in demand, eg. translation, transcriptions from audio, and creative writing. If you have skills that are in demand, you can quickly rise up to that  $5 to $10 an hour income.  But you cannot go online and get it right away. The first thing you will learn is that applications to join the websites that attract you are not instantly accepted, and that some will take weeks to approve your application to join!

    Whenever you take a job - any job - you have to build up trust with your employer.  The online sites that provide work have ways through which they let you build up that trust, and they have tests that let you qualify to perform better paid work than the newbies are getting.  

    Sometimes the tests are in a separate section of the site, sometimes they are attached to the description of a job, sometimes you click on a job only to find it is a test, or begins with a test.

    You build up trust by visiting sites frequently, doing some trivial tasks, and taking those tests. Everything you do well builds trust, so a lot of little things can mount up for your trust score..  Things you do badly are not good for your reputation.  These websites are looking for people that do their trivial tasks right every time, with very few failures. Remember, the site sells the work you do, and the customers want their work done correctly.

    I am in the UK, so I am writing from a UK perspective.  The things I find to do on line might be useful to anyone, but do not be surprised if you cannot do some of the things I am doing.
