One of the most important aspects in getting started is identifying habits and practices in your daily routine that are already potential cash cows. I earn an extra $100 each month simply by getting paid to do internet searches and listening to music. With a little adjustment to the way you currently search the internet and the way you listen to music every day, you will be putting your earnings on auto-pilot. This is as close as it comes to effortless money. That said, it takes discipline to consistently change your current habits – for example: instead of going to Pandora a few times per day to get your music fix, you’ll use ClixSense; instead of using Google for your routine web searches, you’ll hopscotch among paid search services that will surprise you (in a pleasant way) with the number of incentives they offer.
I earmark my Daily Routine Earnings for my car insurance and gas, and still have some left over.
While it would be wonderful if we could perform unlimited paid searches every day, each site has daily limits. If you want to rake in $100 each month, it is essential that you join several sites and get into a habit of using them each day. Contact me if you need help. This is a good way to ease into earning online and will be one of your bedrock earners for a long time to come.
Below are the services that I use along with some information and tips on maximizing your earnings.
InboxDollars and SendEarnings (both are owned by the same company, and both will give you $5 just for joining. That’s $10 before you even begin.) InboxDollars and SendEarnings allow you to do up to 30 searches per day. You’ll receive a bonus for consistency if you do this at least four days per week.
Warning! Services to Avoid
I don’t feel comfortable recommending any services that require you to install browser add-ons, due to the security and privacy risks. Two popular services that I do not use and will not recommend are Qmee and Scour.
GiftHulk offers many ways to make money, and one method is through paid searches.
Swagbucks does it a bit differently. If you use it often, you will randomly see a window pop up with a “gift” amount for searching. I find that about every 10 searches yields a gift ranging from $.08- .$25, and it adds up. This is one of my favorite sites for searching.
Bing Rewards is a must-use. When you initially join, you are limited to 15 searches per day on your computer and 10 on your device. After reaching 200 credits (2 searches = 1 credit), you will achieve Silver status. At 750 credits you achieve Gold status. With Gold status, you get 30 computer searches per day and 10 mobile. Bing also offers about 5 “special” searches per day, and each week they have a double day, during which your rewards are, you guessed it, doubled.
Zoombucks offers a search program very similar to Swagbucks. As you search, you randomly receive gifts. Most days, I keep a window open for both Swagbucks and Zoombucks, and search simultaneously.
ClixSense is nother great site which I promise to write more about in the future. Suffice it to say: The very first thing I do when I sit at my computer each morning is to visit ClixSense and listen to the radio. I recommend you do like me and let the radio run all day long, just remember to check the screen every hour to verify that you are still listening. My ClixSense earnings come out to about $30 each month, just from listening to the radio each day.
