There is no such thing as easy money, but the phrase “relatively easy money” should exist.
There are numerous, relatively easy ways for you to make money from home.
Some of these jobs require no skills while some may require them.
Become an online mock juror
A mock juror is a paid volunteer who engages in mock trials to help lawyers and legal teams fine-tune and build their cases before a trial.
Be sure to apply for an “online” mock juror position before you start. “Live” mock jurors have to show up in person at a courthouse or lawyer’s office to participate in a mock trial.
Even as an online mock juror, you will be expected to watch the opening, arguments, evidence presentation, witness statements, and closing statements. You will then be expected to answer a questionnaire, give a verdict, or even be interviewed by a lawyer about your thoughts.
You can make anywhere from $10 to $60 per case. Sometimes you may be able to make more, but such cases are long, complicated, and require detailed post-analysis.
Here are several online mock juror sites for you to check out:
Online music review writer
The music industry is not dead, even though everyone keeps predicting its death. However, since the music industry is now mostly digital, it is not making as much money as it used to.
Record companies could judge what consumers liked by which albums they bought. Remember the free listening booths in the CD stores before they became extinct?
Record companies used to track which songs you listened to and how long you listened to gauge which artists and music genres would be popular.
This practice still exists on a small scale. There are many websites that will pay you to listen to a song and give a detailed review. However, the pay is extremely modest. You shouldn’t expect more than $0.02 to $0.20 per review.
Some sites will pay you relatively more according to how long and informative your review is.
