Happy Valentine’s Day! In honor of a day filled with the ooey gooeys for the people we love I wanted to give you some of the places we, the Adventure Team, Love to Make Money Online!

10 Places We Love to Make Money Online From the Adventure Team

1. Elance

Elance is a freelance bidding site. Many writers, designers and virtual assistants find work using Elance. The great thing about this freelance bidding site is the fact it is not uncommon to find yourself a long-term contract with a client who pays well. Many freelancers turn to Elance to fill their schedules and their pockets.

2. Textbroker

If you love to write online content then Textbroker should be your go-to place. When you have spare time and need to make money fast then check out Textbroker. They pay weekly through PayPal. It can be easy to rack up a nice weekly paycheck writing online content articles for Textbroker. Just be sure to watch your commas.

3. Odesk

Similar to Elance, Odesk is another freelance bidding site. Companies post work they need completed and freelancers compete with each other by bidding on the project. Your experience, presentation and fee are a few factors that can determine if you land the gig! Odesk clients often have long term or ongoing projects that freelancers come to rely on for their weekly pay.

4. Craigslist Forums

I must be honest and let you know this is a new one for me! But Faith Stewart, a regular contributor and part of the Adventure Team here at Work at Home Adventures says it is one of her favorite places! I visited the Craigslist forum “Job Market” for the first time today and now I am excited to dig a little deeper. Thanks for sharing Faith!

5. BoostCTR

Once accepted to write advertisement blocks for BoostCTR it is a quick and easy place to go to make money online. BoostCTR pays quickly via PayPal and the work is a lot of fun. Plus, if you are a blogger or online marketer then BoostCTR can really benefit you! The experience and training will help you understand writing your own ads or even better contextual ways to generate leads from your blogs/websites.

6. Fancy Hands

Complete tasks online as a virtual assistant for Fancy Hands. I had not worked with Fancy Hands for a very long time and was surprised to find my account still active. Most jobs pay around $3 and take 15-20 minutes to complete. Although Fancy Hands does not hire regularly. The next time you see they are accepting applications- I suggest you apply.

If interested in Virtual Assisting check out this list of places who hire VA’s.

7. Needle.com

This is something I am JUST starting but I know a lot about Needle! They offer chat based customer service for mainstream brands. I will begin working as a Chat Support agent for Overstock next week. A good friend of mine has been working for Needle for several months and she loves it! Pay is weekly via PayPal and the schedule is very flexible.

Other Chat Based Customer Support Jobs

8. LiveOps

Although I have not worked at LiveOps in a long time it is one of the most flexible places you can make money using the internet and your computer. LiveOps is a virtual Call Center that would require you to use a home phone line and requires a quiet background. However, you can make your own schedule or login when available. It is great for people who need to put life before work.

9. Leapforce

Search Engine evaluating at Leapforce was very rewarding for me. As a blogger and web designer it was nice getting a tiny peak at the inner workings of search engine giants like Google and Bing. Leapforce paid fairly well in comparison with most online work and the schedule was flexible. Actually, there was no schedule at Leapforce. I would just log in and work whenever I had the availability.

10. MTurk

Mturk is a staple in most every freelancers list of places they love to make money online. It is a great place to find tasks that pay quickly. Although many of the tasks, called  HITS, at Mturk pay very low rates there is almost always a few quality and worthwhile clients listing work. The key to making money with Mturk is being on top of the best tasks listed!

11. Fiverr

Fiverr is an online marketplace where freelancers offer services to customers worldwide. The range of services is broad, including graphic design, writing, translation, video editing, programming, and more. The platform’s name comes from the original price for all services being $5.

12. Upwork

Upwork, formed from a merger of Elance and Odesk, is a global freelancing platform where businesses and independent professionals connect and collaborate remotely. It covers many professional domains such as writing, graphic design, marketing, and programming, allowing freelancers to bid on suitable projects.

13. Etsy

Etsy is an e-commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items and craft supplies. Artists, crafters, and vintage sellers can set up their shop to sell to consumers around the world. It’s a great platform for people with creative skills who want to monetize their crafts.

14. Tutor.com

Tutor.com provides online tutoring services. If you’re an expert in a particular subject, you can become a tutor and teach students online. This flexible online teaching platform allows you to set your schedule.

15. Shutterstock

Shutterstock is a stock photography website where photographers can sell their photos. If you have a talent for photography, you can upload your images to Shutterstock and earn money when people purchase them. The platform also allows selling video footage and vector graphics.

This is so awesome! Thanks for sharing. I am always looking for extra ways to earn money from home, especially as a stay at home mommy blogger/homeschooler. I love your site and utilize it often. Thanks for all the awesome info that you share.


March 6, 2013 at 8:59 pm

ice list! I have been working full time through oDesk for over a year now and never ever thought that I would be able to earn a full time living from home, I will check some of those others out because if odesk is at 3rd I need to explore your 1 and 2 options!

I don’t understand how you can make money on craigslist forums. Please explain.

Wei Liam

In my opinion, this is what she meant by posting on Craiglist, you build your name and let people know who you are. If people want your services, they will contact you.

Looking at the information provided, it focus more on freelance work online. You definitely provide good information information if you want to be a online freelancer.

However, if you are thinking of making money online , ways like blogging, product creation, affiliate marketing might be a better choice.

Super solid list of resources Miranda, thanks for sharing!



August 22, 2013 at 4:49 am

Its a good resource to look for freelancing job, I like Fiverr also for that purpose…


September 25, 2013 at 2:46 am

It isn’t realistic expecting to make
money on these sites. No, I don’t
think so. But if you want to try,
go ahead.

Thanks for the tip about Craigslist forums. I’ll be taking a closer look. I used to place classified ads. It was a struggle because my ads would get flagged and removed for no reason. However, I discovered that I could place an ad in the books for sale section sense I promote an ebook. I get great exposure with a substantially less competition.

Having an information product to promote opens up many more marketing opportunites : )

Great list! At The Entrepreneurs Library we are very big fans of Fiverr. It’s a great place to find cheap work AND make some great passive income on the side. Cheers!

Great Post. fiverr.com is also good for making $5 at a time if you can perform a task that is in-demand.


November 11, 2014 at 2:33 am

Thanks for this gem


January 11, 2015 at 6:24 am

Quite a good and informative post. Out of these i’ve heard that elance and mturk are quite a good way to earn some pocket money. Anyway you can use centpage to find that out.

Great list! And I believe it’s been already said, but affiliate marketing is also a great way to make money online. Everything requires a lot of work, but once you get the ball rolling you can essentially have your business on auto pilot with affiliate marketing. Freelancing and the like will require you to be a slave to the computer.

Fancy Hands is a joke. My writing is impeccable, and I am highly intelligent, yet they felt that I wasn’t smart enough.
