What it is: CloudCrowd is a workspace where you get paid for completing tasks, such as writing articles and product descriptions, finding quotes online, editing or data entry. While this is still what most people would likely consider low-paying work, they did just increase the pay offered for different projects -- and they offer small bonuses. According to their site, workers can now earn $15-$25 per hour. The big plus on this one is that they pay either the same day or the next day (via PayPal), so if you are in a tight spot and need some fast money, this is one site where you can get it.
How to Earn: You must have a Facebook account. Complete tasks, including writing articles, writing product descriptions, creating resumes, summarizing business guides, evaluating website experiences, verifying data, data entry, translation, performing research tasks, editing documents and more.
Rewards: Money! (deposited in your PayPal account by the end of the next business day)
My Experience: I signed up for CloudCrowd just to check it out -- and confirm that it was legit -- before recommending it to others. I completed a few tasks and was paid promptly. I typically stay a bit too busy with my freelance work to hit up sites like this for extra money, so I have not spent a lot of time there, but I can definitely see how people could easily use CloudCrowd to make money between gigs or as a side job. It's definitely staying on my list of possibilities.
Getting Started: Sign up here. Remember: You must have a Facebook account in order to pick up easy gigs off of CloudCrowd. If you do not have one, you can sign up for free.
