6 Legitimate Ways Anyone Can Make Money Online

Even you can make money online! Yes, it is true.
There are many legitimate ways to earn extra cash and supplemental income online. Nowadays, anyone can do it.
If you want to bring in some additional income to help with the household bills, save for a vacation or get yourself out of debt, there are many websites online to get you started. You don’t have to be highly experienced or have a long resume to work with any of these four websites to begin making money online.

1. SliceThePie

SliceThePie has to be one of the coolest websites for making money online! Get paid to listen to a song and then write a brief review to give the artist your feedback.

Although this gig doesn’t pay enough to count as a job, it is something you can do any time, day or night. Additionally, SliceThePie pays to your PayPal account a few days after you withdraw your funds (provided you have reached the minimum $10 cash-out threshold).

There is no application process, just sign up and begin earning money. SliceThePie is a fun way to make some extra cash when you have a few spare moments through the day.


Textbroker works with people from all over the United States to write very basic articles on a wide variety of topics. For instance, my first Textbroker article was on the topic of how to properly hang curtains. I spent a few minutes finding a few articles online as my resource and quickly typed up the short article.

Although Textbroker does have an application process, it is very light and almost everyone who can use proper grammar, lives in the US, and speaks English is quickly accepted.

The greatest benefit of writing for Textbroker is their quick weekly pay to your PayPal account.

3. Fiverr

Fiverr is making a huge wave with freelancers online. Anyone can make money using Fiverr. Just create an account and begin thinking up things you can do virtually for five bucks!

Whatever your specialty may be, from proofreading articles to giving tips about how to feed an iguana, there is no limit! You can also make things (like a pair of earrings) and sell for five bucks, just add an additional shipping cost that the buyer will be responsible for.

Fiverr is a fun way to make money, however, they do keep a portion of your earnings (everyone’s gotta make money). After Fiverr keps their portion and you pay your PayPal fees, you usually see around $3.77 per gig. So, keep that in mind when brainstorming the services you will offer at Fiverr.

4. Amazon Mechanical Turk

Mturk is an internet marketplace that enables individuals or businesses to co-ordinate the use of human intelligence to perform tasks that computers are currently unable to do. Requesters post tasks known as HITs (Human Intelligence Tasks). Workers can browse tasks such as choosing the best among several photographs of a store-front, writing product descriptions, censoring videos or identifying performers on music CDs. 

Payments for HITs range from cents to $40+, although many are around $1. The minimum cash out threshold is $10, which is not bad, because you can get to that level relatively quickly. Payments for completing tasks can be redeemed on via gift certificate or be later transferred to a Worker's U.S. bank account. With the great variety of tasks available it is definitely worth a look.

5. QuickTate

QuickTate is a general transcription company that mostly deals with transcribing voice mail into text. It is a fun job, listening to other people’s phone’s voice messaging system and typing out what is said.
Unfortunately, QuickTate doesn’t pay much for this work, but their application process is very simple and easy to pass.

Many people use QuickTate as a way to gain some general transcription experience and ease their way into becoming a genuine freelance transcriptionist. Working online at QuickTate is a great way to hone your typing and listening skills.

6. HulkCoin

HulkCoin is a website where you earn HulkCoins. You can earn these by doing surveys, playing games, completing offers or you can watch HulkTV! I spent a good amount of time watching Food Network Videos and got a nice amount of HCs while learning new recipes.
You can then spend these on a vast selection of gift cards or prizes. They also have raffles for paypal gift cards that you can enter for a small amount of HulkCoins. This site is more geared toward having a good time rather than making lots of cash.
