Most people have to leave home to find employment that pays the rent. Only a handful of really lucrative legal professions exist online, and even in those cases, most individuals have to go out sometimes. One is more likely to find online money making opportunities which supplement their incomes than regular online jobs that pay the bills.
For example, a person with excellent English skills could teach English over the computer to students overseas. Traditionally, this is filled by young Canadians, Britons, or Americans traveling to Asia and areas where interest in English is strong. Teachers need only be adventurous, not trained educators. Students are paying the same educators with or without education degrees to help them expand their knowledge of the language. They arrange with pupils to earn an hourly fee, but hours are not guaranteed.
Another revolution in online employment is the ability to take the internet on the road. Online money making now takes place wherever one has access to a connection. An Android app is enabling consumers to earn money monthly or per view by watching advertisements.
A more creative app allows consumers with a keen eye for photography to upload pictures and sell them on the open market. Only quality photos (and appropriate images) will be accepted, but once they are available, consumers searching for such photos (with the help of tags) pinpoint and purchase them. Half the money goes to the company behind this innovation, half to the photographer’s Paypal account.
Many television viewers fortunate enough to be on the scene when events happened have sent their videos to news networks for payment, especially local stations. Video-enabled smart phones increase consumers’ ability to capture video without preparation and even to create news stories complete with captions and commentary. For the individual with an eye for pertinent events, great timing, and a way with words, selling amateur news video over the internet to a TV station could net extra cash once in a while.
