It seems that everyone is searching for a way to make money online today. Legitimate programs are hard to come by, but I’ve been trying different programs lately and here are two that I can personally recommend as working. Don’t forget to look at our online job directory for more legitimate programs as well.
I’ve been hearing a lot about ChaCha lately and decided it was time to investigate for myself. ChaCha is a mobile answering service that uses humans to search and answer questions for users. A user texts or calls ChaCha with a question, the question is sent to a ‘Generalist’ or a ‘Specialist’ and they find an answer and text back. It’s a pretty amazing service and it’s incredibly useful. You can text any question to the number 242242 and you’ll receive a response in just a few minutes. Try it now. Ask them anything.
Now, that you’ve harassed ChaCha enough, you should know that the entire process requires humans and these people are all working from home and getting paid. When you call in a question, a ‘Transcriber’ writes out the voice message and passes it onto an ‘Expeditor.’ An Expeditor takes the voice message or text message, cleans it up, and passes it on to either a ‘Specialist’ or ‘Generalist’ who, in turn, finds an answer to the question and texts it back to the person who asked.
Expeditors make between 2 and 3 cents per message they pass on. Transcribers make 4 cents per message they type up, and Generalists and Specialists make 10 cents per message they answer with the ability to move up to 20 cents per question. I’ve started working as a Generalist yesterday morning and I’ve already accumulated $25.00 in my account. The work is relatively easy and it usually takes nothing more than a Google search to find an answer. I hardly spend more than 30 seconds per answer.
ChaCha is constantly looking for guides and the work is relatively easy to do and you can work whatever time you want to work. You can sit down and work for 8 hours each day or you can work for 5 minutes in your spare time.

I’ve only been a member for a couple of days, but I’ve managed to write a few posts and accumulate $5.00 in my account.

I don’t see either program turning into a full-time job, but they’re both a great way to pick up some extra cash when I have some spare time. Be sure to check them out.
