Making Money Online

Post by Lee » 26 Sep 2014, 05:21

This year I've been making money online from surveys and other things. I myself am a member of seven different websites. This was mainly how I was able to save up for a new computer.
I won't list the names of the four NZ websites here, just the international ones. I can tell you how much I have earned so far this year, and I was wondering if anyone else has been earning online too.

Neobux: $82.63
GiftHulk: $102.00
Toluna: $50.00
Website 4: $90.00
Website 5: $220.00
Website 6: $50.00
Website 7: $58.68

Total: $653.31 (everything in NZ dollars)

oke, well, never orkade effort, but thought about it for pretty much 10 years. I remember making 30dolars in diablo2 by selling near perfect crown of ages! But I think making money for the sake of making money is not in me, and I dont need a new pc, 8fps in poe is enough.

Isn't the return rate so low it is basically not worth doing? You could earn 10x-100x an hour by just getting a normal job?

Lee: How much money did you put in to start with? I remember at least Neobux takes forever to earn anything significant without some initial money.
then again i don't know anything
maybe easier not to think abouut alöl things thought than not things thought ... or something..=?

If you've spent more than 30 hours on it, you'd be better off doing some overtime at work, I guess.

Time varies a lot. For Neobux I don't bother with ad clicks, I just do mini jobs instead. That works out to be around $1 per 6 minutes of work.
Some days I get lucky and earn around $10 for 30 minutes worth of surveys. Some weeks I don't do anything at all because of no surveys.
Some surveys say they'll take 40 minutes to complete for $4 but only takes 10 minutes, which is good. And some times it says it'll take 20 minutes to complete for $2 but it really takes 35 minutes, which is annoying.
All up the amount of time spent probably averages out to around 15 minutes each day (just an estimate). It's not that bad for some extra money on the side.
I know some of you were playing that Motocoin game and earning money that way. How much was earned through that?

1. Arbitrage betting:

Some 600-1300eur monthly.

2. Steam trading:

- buy cheap skins, sell it higher -> free games - i have 84eur on my steam wallet now and many sellable things.

3. Recyclix

I got 20eur free, it looks real, so i did pay in 20 eur cos they banned members who did not deposit, then i sold some garbage and did withdraw my deposited money, now i just reinvest all income. They have webcams from buildings etc.

Any updates on this? Would be interested in this arbitrage betting thing Labs mentioned, sounds solid (but risky?) judging by the numbers.

My only real accomplishments were winning Jace Hall's doom tournament and splitting $5000 with my friend; and selling some ingame currencies in online games for about $2300. Would be interested in knowing more about additional sources of income on the side, since both of the things i've done are basically seasonal. The former will most likely never happen again, and the latter happens once every 4 months or so, and takes about 200 hours kek.

Well arbitrage shouldn't be risky because that's the whole point of that method. But if you want to make real money out of it then you have to bet a lot because the wins are not that big. It also takes time.. orka. Of course it also possible you make a mistake yourself and bet 500e for some wrong thing yikes. But there are many tools developed for this purpose, you just have to know if you can trust the tools and know what you are doing. I myself find real job an easier way to get money ROLf but sure if something easy and quick comes up I might jump on the bandwagon!

Much thanks for the input! I agree about real job, but it heavily depends on the country you're living in. It's completely unrealistic for me to earn more than 3-5e/hour even with good education and couple years of experience. So it'd be a huge plus to have something additional, at least for the next few months, hence the question :^)

If you have marketable "digital" skills (coding, design, marketing, tech support etc) it doesn't matter where you live - you can make about the same amount freelancing anywhere - you just need to be able to convince potential clients you know what you'ŗe doing even if your portfolio isn't much to show when starting out. Fluent level of professional English is also quite essential to stand out and make people believe you understand every detail of the requirements.

No offense, but these "making money" methods are a huge waste of time when you could be learning marketable skills that pay off wayyy more in the long run. It's current year, you don't need to have a degree or to live anywhere in particular to make money comparable to American (or whatever) salaries. Just the ability to use resources available for free on the internet. And a self-motivated attitude because you basically run your own business and there's no boss to keep you from slacking off. I can see why the stability of a "salary job" can be enticing in western countries but in 3rd world or post-Soviet states it just makes no sense to not go for a digital nomad career instead if you can speak English at all as the payoff is way better.

Oke, some update of my "shit".

1. Arb betting: huh its like 300eur-700eur monthly now...

2. Steam trades: hmm, smth like 100eur-200eur monthly (you can sell the skins for real money, so its real money, ye.)

3. recyclix: 0, this one seems dead, at least i got out from it without minus.

4. New one for me: Mining e-money with computer (bitcoin, ethereum, zcash etc...). Nothing yet, but i bought an 1070gtx to start mining, datas showin 5eur daily with one card, if it will work fine in the next weeks i go hard and buy a 'norm' rig with 4-5 cards in it, which will make about 20eur daily without any work. (i always need future plans like this, cos i dont have a job and i dont want to get one.)

even if his pc was drawing full power (550w) 24/7 the cost of electricity would be max 1-2e (i put price per kwh to 7-14cent range)

Historically you'd always make more money by buying (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc) and holding rather than spending the same money on mining gear and mining.

I saw this Banking on Bitcoin (2016) and it was very interesting, it feels risky though to invest anything in Bitcoin, but maybe in the long run it could work it it does not crash or something else happen. In China, Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency are now illegal to exchange with.

It's no use in mining Bitcoin today with one computer, you are mining too slow and the worth of it is too high. Better off using your money to actually buy Bitcoin and then just wait.

I'm still investing in stocks, Swedish companies.

Started doing some Japanese-to-Russian translations. It's kind of a rare skill, so finding clients (e.g. anime fans) doesn't seem terribly difficult. I've already made about 70 dollars and I'm expecting to double this sum in the following 2 weeks. I'm still trying to figure out how to set prices. So far everyone gets surprised when I name the price as they expect larger numbers. I have pretty much zero experience in stuff like this so it's kind fo tricky. I obviously would love to make more but I want to remain very accessible to everyone. I guess I'll try increasing them slowly and seeing how people react.

Well, I'm not knowledgeable about this, but when I saw $70 I was really surprised. I think translation tends to be a pretty expensive business, so, given how rare your skill is, I think you can be making quite a bit that way! I suppose Russian-Japanese is gonna be mostly informal stuff, but you may consider getting some professional accreditation too (course/exam/etc.), then you could take on formal translation jobs too, which I assume would allow you to charge substantially more!

Anyway, great to see some entrepreneurship here =) Good luck kuchi!

500-1500 € per month (tax free?) sounds pretty good for many people in lower income countries. Out of curiosity I'd like to ask some questions:

1) How many hours of work are required for that sum? In other words what would be the hourly wage?
2) How risky is that? Since trading is involved is it possible to lose money?

Sounds like it's not something to build a career on since I don't see those kind of things lasting very long, but maybe it could be beneficial for someone.

1. If you want to trade on the internal exchange, i'm not the man who cant teach it (also there is many rules), hourly wage is impossible to say in this world of trading, it can be anything.

You can try to trade the coin (ARB) tho on coinexchange.io since there are no rules like on the internal exchange. The whole point there is, you make an offer, when it fills, you sell it higher, like on any other exchange. I would not suggest it, if you are new in trading, you can lose all your money ez.

2. You dont have to trade, can just go into abot and you get a daily percent of the company's earning (arbitraging bots) and compound or withdraw it.

There is pretty much thing tho which you should know about how to use the site and abot, also the internal exchange. All of the knowledge needed takes some time, but here you can watch some tutorials:

Useful Links:

* ARB Official Tutorials Channel - https://t.me/ArbTutorials
* ARB Official Discord - https://discordapp.com/invite/VRzhnna
* ARB Media Channel - https://t.me/arbbroadcast

Useful Tutorials & Videos
* ARB TUTORIAL CHANNEL - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCY6mUk ... vQKNbsTR0Q

Abot gives ~0.5-1% daily, so after some months with getting your daily incomes you are at your money and you have nothing to lose from that point.

At every company, there is a risk that they disappear, but here the CEO and the whole team is known, also many community members already met them.

Personally I'd stay the hell away from companies that ask you to join, deposit money and invite friends, especially if they promise daily growth of 0,5-1 % (can be for example compared to average stock return of roughly 7 % in a YEAR). Surely if you feel comfortable being part of one feel free to do so, I suppose there can be good money in them for a small group of people.
