You’ll recognize many of the sites below. However, when I usually write about them, I’m referring to them as means of outsourcing. In this case, I’m listing them as ways to make money online by being a provider of services.
- Elance – I love Elance for outsourcing, and on the flip side, it could be a great way to make money online as a freelancer.
- oDesk – Same as Elance, although many say that oDesk is the better choice for hiring programmers.
- Microworkers – Make money by performing mini-tasks. I wrote a review on Microworkers early last year.
- Mechanical Turk – Owned by Amazon, this site is similar to Microworkers, but maybe a bit more sophisticated.
- Fiverr – Make money online by offering virtually any service or mini-task…the catch is, you have to charge $5!
- Just a Five – Very similar to Fiverr.
- TenBux – Make money with gigs that cost either $5 or $10.
- GigMe5 – I think you get the idea…
- UpHype – Another gig site, with odd price points: $8, $16, or $24.
- Dollar3 – A gig site with price point in multiples of $3, starting at $3.
- Jobs for 10 – Take a guess at what this one’s about.
- Fittytown – A little bit more upscale – all gigs are $50 each.
- Demand Media – A great site for freelance writers, however you must be approved first (and I’ve heard they’re somewhat selective). Once you’re accepted, however, you can earn up to $15+ per article, which can be quite lucrative if you’re a fast writer.
- Constant Content – Another freelance writing site.
- Associated Content – Earn up-front payments for articles and also get paid based on views (I’m told it’s a very small amount).
- Break Studios – Freelance writing site similar to Demand Studios, though they pay less (up to $8/article), however the article length requirements can be shorter.
