Has the idea ever crossed your mind that you can make money solving problems or to say it more precisely - answering questions on some websites?
Believe it or not, but if you haven't heard this before, I will show you here how you can make money answering questions that you already know.
Even if you don't know the answers, you can still make money if you know the art of researching Google and finding the right answer quickly.
The websites that I show you prove one thing.
Good information is pretty hard to find. And if you provide that, you have just solved some one's pain problem. Good news is that people are ready to pay for it.
That means there is real money in answering questions.
As I said above, you really don't have to be Dr. Spock to put your knowledge to work to make you money. In most cases you only need to be smart enough to use dig into search engine result and frame your answer in least amount of time, while keeping the quality up.
You can make anywhere between $15 to $60 in an hour depending on the website you are working for and the number of questions you answer.
There are scores of website that offer the opportunity for people to answer questions from home via high speed (e.g. broadband internet) connectivity and make cool money.
When you work from home it doesn't really matter whether you are working in your shorts or formals. But what really matter are professionalism and the seriousness you exhibit while performing the job.
Your income or your earning potential depends on how serious you are towards the job. I repeat this again because if you think if you can make some money working for few hours here and there, you may be disappoint at the end of the month when you look into your account to check how much you have made.
Specialized websites that look for professional experts pay extremely well. If you are professional expert you can make few hundred dollars a day on these websites answering questions. But generis website pay only few cents for answering questions. That means though the answers are easy here and won't take you any longer than 2 minutes to solve them, you should answer several questions in an hour plus you should also spend good 6 to 8 hours each day to make few thousand dollars each month.
Many people who have started their career from these sites are today earning several thousand dollars each month, spending only 2 to 3 hours per day.
