been a better time to make money, even without a traditional 9-to-5 jobs. Today I’m going to share with you 150 apps
you can use to make money. I’m using an infographic here by TitleMax
listing the money-making apps in 24 categories. I’ll not only walk you through each category,
how you can make money, but I’ll also reveal the pros and cons of each. This is going to be a long video so I’ll
leave a time-stamp index in the video description below in case you want to jump ahead to a
specific money-making idea or app. One last note before I show you these apps,
I’m not going to link to all 150 in the description. That would just be madness. But you can find each one with a Google search
and you’ll be able to sign up and download the apps within minutes. I’ll also link to a post with the pdf so
you can scroll through it. I need to get your opinion too though, some
of these apps, you’ll be able to make money from your phone, others you’ll have to go
somewhere or do some kind of work. I want to know, which of the apps do you think
are best or worst for making money? Which apps do you use and which would you
consider using and why, So scroll down and tell us in the comments. Our first group of apps that make money are
for Grocery Delivery with apps like Instacart, Peapod, Shipt and Fresh Direct. Some of the apps on the list are going to
be for local work while others you can do from anywhere and these first delivery apps
are that local kind. This is a really fast growing segment of the
side hustle market and apps are available on iPhone or Android. You’ll need current insurance on your car
and a clean driving record but that’s pretty much it. Some apps require drivers to be 18 while others
it’s 21 years old to deliver. Like a lot of these side gig apps, it pays
to learn the best times to work, so when people are more likely to be ordering groceries. That’s usually weeknights from 5pm to 9pm
local time, when people are tired from work, need something but don’t want to go to the
store. The pros here are that you can make more money
than with other apps. Drivers usually make about $10 to $15 an hour
from the app plus tips which can be another $5 an hour or more. On most apps, you just go to the store and
pick up the order so no shopping involved. It’s just driving from the store to delivery. The downside is that you’ll be spending
some of that money on gas and need to account for maintenance on your car as well. Make sure you keep all your gas receipts while
doing this and all receipts from car repairs to write off as a business expense on your
taxes. This next group of money making apps I’m
sure you’ve heard of, ride-sharing apps like Uber, Lyft and Curb. These were some of the first apps for the
gig economy and is just turning your car into a taxi. With most of these, you’ll need to be 21
years old and with a four-door car no older than 2001. You’ll need a clean driving record and current
insurance. It usually takes two or three days after applying
to get approved and start driving. Once you start, the app will show you the
busiest places and best times to drive. It also includes a GPS function for directions
and it will track your earnings. Riders pay a base fee plus a per minute per
mile fee just like with traditional taxis. The rideshare apps advertise they take about
25% but the reality is closer to 30% or 35% of the fees go to the rideshare companies. That still leaves drivers making between $10
to $15 an hour plus tips. The rideshare apps have been cutting fees
to stay competitive so those tips have become a bigger slice of driver earnings. Pros of working rideshare apps are setting
your own hours. If you have a few hours a day or weekends
free, you can easily and quickly supplement your income. Some drivers I know like the social interaction,
especially if you work a day job without coworkers. The cons are the wear and tear on your car,
so those repairs and just gas money are going to eat into your earning power. The work is generally safe so that’s not
a problem but customers can sometimes be rude. You won’t make as much money with ridesharing
apps as some of the others on the list but overall a great side gig. Our third category of apps that pay is restaurant
food delivery, and if you’re tired of delivery apps remember there’s a linked index in
the description below to jump to the other categories of apps. Here you’re going to see a lot of the same
ideas as the other two delivery apps so you’ve got UberEats, Grub Hub, Eat Street and Door
Dash. You’ll notice throughout the list that not
all the apps will be available or have much business in your area but there will usually
be one or two you can use to make money. Americans alone spend more than $75 billion
a year in take out and these restaurant deliver apps are on fire. One of my favorite new side gigs, one we’ve
talked about on the channel, is meal delivery where you’re cooking and delivering the
meals. With these apps, you’re just handling the
delivery so it’s even easier. Customers pay a base fee usually from a dollar
to $10 and then a percentage of the order. The app will either take a percentage of this
or charge the restaurant for delivery and the driver keeps the rest. Wages reported range from $10 to $20 per hour
including tips with fares per trip from about $13 to $16 depending on the city. The pros and cons are similar here, you’ll
make a decent amount of money and can set your schedule for those peak hours when you
make the most. You don’t have to put up with customers
like with ridesharing. On the downside are the costs on your car
and sometimes waiting for the order to be ready at the restaurant. Last for the delivery apps is a catch-all
like Amazon Flex and other package delivery apps like Favor and Roadie. Amazon Flex is a really interesting one because
of the sheer number of packages they need delivered. You’re basically turning your car into a
mini-postal service. With Amazon Flex, you’ve also got the opportunity
of making money through their grocery and meals delivery service with AmazonFresh and
Amazon Restaurants. The service is available in 40 cities now
but expanding fast. You’ll need a car with registration and
insurance but don’t necessarily need a spotless record like with the ridesharing apps. You can pick up multiple packages or deliveries
at a time so having a larger car or SUV will help you make more money. You sign up for shifts of three or six hours
on Amazon Flex. The app will notify you ahead of your shift
and show you available pickups in the area. It will also help find routes so you can pick
up and drop off multiple packages or meals at the same time, helping you make more money. Drivers get paid twice a week and report making
between $18 to $25 an hour with package delivery on the low end and food delivery on the high
end when including tips. Pros include the ease of using the Amazon
Flex app and the ability to pick up multiple packages at once. That means better money and less driving because
you’re making one long trip instead of a lot of smaller ones. The downside is still the fact that a few
bucks an hour will need to be budgeted for expenses and you’ll need to block out those
three or six-hour shifts. Time for a different category, next we have
apps that make money for simple tasks like general cleaning, furniture assembly and yard
work. TaskRabit and Postmates are the largest here
but you’ve also got apps like moonlighting, easy shift and gigwalk. These task apps are a lot like Craigslist
except easier and you make sure you get paid. People post tasks they need done on the app. You create a profile on the website, set your
rates and level of experience for task categories. Most apps like TaskRabbit take a 20% fee on
the job, you’ll get the rest plus any tips. You need to be 21 years old and have a clean
criminal record to work on TaskRabbit though the age requirement is 18 on other apps. Most taskers charge between $25 to $75 an
hour depending on the job and some report making upwards of two grand a week. Financial website PennyHoarder interviewed
two taskers making up to $7,000 a month by working full-time on the app. With these, you don’t necessarily need a
car but you’ll need a way to get from job to job. Pros of using these task apps to make money
is you don’t need a car or at least you don’t have that same wear and tear on your
car as you do the delivery apps. You can also make more money and you get more
freedom to do different things. On the downside, it seems most of the tasks
are for manual labor like handyman and construction-type jobs so you do need skills to do specific
tasks. You might also wait longer to get a task than
some of those delivery apps. This next category of apps to make money is
similar to the last but a little more physical, including more of those construction, moving
and yard work jobs. Here you’ve got apps like Dolly, Handy and
LawnLove. While some of these are those construction
and carpentry jobs, there are plenty of tasks for moving, cleaning and yard work. All the apps will do a background check and
some require clean criminal history. All require you to be 18 years or older and
have your own transportation. The pay is higher on these tasks and tips
can be really good. Movers on dolly are paid $15 an hour if you
don’t have a truck or $30 an hour if you have a truck you can use. Workers on the Handy app report making around
$25 an hour with several featured making $125 a day and $800 in her first week. Most of the apps pay weekly and you’ll get
tips on most jobs. You can check the apps anytime you like and
work when you want. You’ll need your own tools or cleaning supplies
so that will cut into how much you earn. As with all these jobs, you’re a self-employed
contractor so keep absolutely all your receipts. You’ll be able to take these expenses off
what you make to save on taxes. Pros of making money with these apps is that
the pay tends to be a little better. People just don’t want to do these physical
tasks, even if it’s lower skilled yard work so you can charge higher rates. You’ll get some good exercise and even a
little fresh air. On the downside is the fact that you’ll
need those specific skills like carpentry for some of the tasks. The downside to that great exercise is also
going to be sore muscles and knees so be ready with the aspirin. We’re just six categories in and a lot of
money-making apps to go but if you’re likin’ the video and think it’s helpful, do me
a favor and tap that thumbs up button or consider sharing it with someone. Our next group of money making apps isn’t
as popular yet as the ridesharing group but could soon become a huge industry with car
rental and apps like Getaround, Turo and HyreCar. These apps are like what AirBnB is for houses
but for your car. You list your car on the app set your rental
price and days it’s available. When someone requests to rent it, you can
deny the request or accept, then you schedule a time for them to pick it up. If you’ve ever rented a car, the process
for pickup and drop-off is very similar. You check the vehicle and the renter’s license. You check the gas and mileage and they’re
off. Most of these car rental apps provide liability
insurance and 24/7 roadside assistance so you’re covered if anything happens to your
car. Renters drop the car off and you check mileage
and the rental app pays you directly. Requirements are fairly strict for the cars
that can be rented. Cars have to be registered and usually no
more than about 12 years old or less than 130,000 miles. Cars need to have a clean title, so they can’t
have been a salvage or in a total loss accident at some point. They also usually need to be cars under a
certain value, like under $150,000 so we’re not talking Lamborghinis or Ferraris here. Cars on the Turo app rent out for around $35
to $65 a day and the owner gets 75% of all fees and mileage charges. The website advertises that the average car,
rented for 15 days out of the month will earn about $450 a month. Not bad and basically can cover your cost
of ownership for the entire money plus then some. The pros of renting your car are that making
money on something you might not be using anyway. If you’re living in a city, you might not
need your car every day. Unlike other apps, you don’t need those
background checks and your own driving record so it’s easier to get into with a good car. The cons probably aren’t what you might
think. Since the apps verify renters and provide
insurance, you’re not really worried about damage to the car. You do need to save some money out of your
earnings for maintenance. A car driven more often is just going to have
more issues. You’ll also need to make arrangements, especially
in case of emergencies, for getting around without your car on those rental days. This next group of apps that pay is a twist
on the rideshare idea with parking rental and apps like SPOT, Just Park and SpotHero. This is a big one in the larger cities where
it’s impossible sometimes to find a parking spot. The idea here is you’ve got that driveway
or your residential parking spot just sitting there while you’re at work or maybe on vacation,
why not make money renting it out? You can use your own driveway, spot in a parking
garage, anywhere you have the exclusive right to park. If there’s demand in your area and one of
the apps available, the whole process is very easy. You sign up and list your space with pictures
and when it’s available. You set a rate and can even set different
rates for different days or times. The apps charge customers directly and most
take about a 25% fee on each transaction. With daily rates on some apps in Chicago and
San Francisco from $15 to $25, that can mean a few hundred a month for renting out your
space while you’re at work. Pros to using spot rental apps to make money
is it’s space you’re probably not using anyway. If you’ve got parking at work, you don’t
need your driveway during the days. The downside is that it can be a little odd
having a stranger park at your house. Even though you’ll get extra money if they
stay over the scheduled time, it can be a pain coming home and still having a car parked
in your way. Our next group of money earning apps is the
largest and most traditional with 15 apps here to help you make money tutoring from
big companies like Kaplan and to smaller websites like preply and VIPKid. You can tutor locally or online through many
of the apps. They work in much the same way as other apps
on our list where you’ll create a profile of your skills in a subject and any tutoring
experience. Parents or someone needing a tutor will browse
the site and select someone to which you can either accept or deny. Some apps will allow you to set your own rates
while others will have a standard per hour rate charged students. The fixed fee sites are usually the ones where
everything is done online while most local tutoring apps will let you set your rates. Either way, tutors usually report earning
between $10 to $30 an hour with local, live tutoring paying more. For example, Chegg pays $20 an hour based
on the number of minutes worked and pays each week on PayPal. Requirements are going to vary slightly depending
on the app and what you’re tutoring but generally it’s a bachelor’s degree or
higher in any field, at least one year teaching or tutoring experience and a fluent level
of English. Some of the apps will take tutors that are
enrolled in a four-year college program. The pros of tutoring apps include that social
interaction you get and the strategy of turning it into a self-published book or other freelancing. You’ll build up a lot of great skills in
teaching and knowledge in the subject area. Cons include travel for local tutoring and
the reverse of that social interaction, having to put up with frustrated parents and kids
that maybe don’t want to learn. This next group of apps seems like a fun one
though we’ve never tried it, pet sitting apps like Rover, Tailsters and Just because you have a pet doesn’t mean
you never want to travel. That’s created the $332 million industry
that serviced over 720,000 households last year according to Pet Sitters International. After signing up on apps like Rover, you’ll
be connected to people that need pet sitting, boarding and walking. Some people will want you to watch their pet
in your home while others will want you to watch in their home, so like pet-sitting and
house-sitting combined. It’s not just dogs and cats either. The rover app has arranged sitting for turtles,
goats, lizards and other reptiles. Requirements are pretty strict as you’d
expect someone caring for a pet or someone’s kids. You’ll have to pass background checks and
will usually have an interview with the staff at the app and then with pet owners when they
call. Rover offers insurance and 24/7 vet consultation
for pet sitters. Money is really good for this one, especially
considering you can watch multiple pets at a time. You set your own rates when you sign up with
$25 a night about the average for watching someone’s pet in your home. That means watching two or three pets for
just two weeks each month can turn into an extra grand a month. The upside on this one is that many people
will enjoy the four-legged companionship so it might not even be so much like work. You’ll make good money and basically just
need to keep the pets comfortable and fed. The downside compared to some of the money
making apps is this is a living, breathing thing you’re caring for and that can mean
problems. Dogs bark and cats get moody. There’s also the meetups you’ll have to
go through before working for a family watching their pet. Your probably more familiar with the apps
in our next group for selling your stuff online. Older apps like eBay along with newer ones
like PoshMark, Decluttr and Dealo. Some of these are item specific like PoshMark
where you sell your used clothes like others are more of a catch-all like CraigsList and
the Facebook Marketplace. Some are auction-based so people bid on your
item while you’ll set your price on others. You can go a couple different routes here. You can make a quick buck by just selling
all that crap around the house you don’t use anymore. I’m looking at that treadmill in the corner. You can also make it a part-time side hustle
by finding inexpensive items from local consignment and then reselling online through some of
these apps. I’ve got a video on the channel detailing
this reseller strategy that I’ll link to in the description below. These apps have the advantage of no requirements
or background checks like the other apps. You’re just selling your stuff so unless
you get lots of complaints on your sales, you’re pretty much in the clear to keep
selling. Here you’re not making money by the hour
but how much you’re selling and this can easily be a six-figure selling business. The pros on this one are that you don’t
have to apply or get approved on most of these apps. You just create an account and start selling
your stuff. It’s a great way to make a little extra
on stuff you’re not using or make it a business. The downside is you’ll need stuff to sell
and this is a business that can take some work getting to know. These next money making apps are controversial
and I know there are a lot of haters out there. These online survey apps might not be passive
income but are legit ways to make money with sites like Swagbucks and Survey Junkie. Like the sell your stuff apps, survey sites
are great for no requirements and an easy application. You sign up to the apps with information about
yourself to give companies an idea of background. This is important because these surveys are
looking for the opinion from certain groups or how different types of people think about
their product. For each survey, you’ll usually answer a
couple of questions to see if you’re qualified for the full survey. That’s usually that you fall in the group
the company or survey is looking for. The payout on these ranges from cash per survey
to free products and rewards you can use to buy products. The cash compensated surveys pay between a
dollar to $15 though most are in that $1 to $5 range. They’ll take less than ten minutes if you’re
in their target market and you can do a few an hour. The pros of online surveys is that you can
do it right from your phone and each survey might only take a couple of minutes at the
most. You can do a lot of these during commercial
breaks or while cooking, basically while you’re not doing anything anyway. The downside is that you’re probably only
making about $5 an hour for these so it’s not something that’s going to make you rich. This next category only shows the one app
but I have a feeling there are a lot more to follow because it’s a really interesting
idea, renting your stuff. With apps like Rentah, you can rent out your
stuff instead of selling it on eBay. The app is a little less organized than some
of the other apps but it’s a good way to make some extra cash on your tech gear and
other higher-ticket items. The renter puts in their credit card number
so you’re covered in case they break your stuff or don’t return it. The pros of renting your stuff is that you
still get to use it instead of selling it outright. Who knows when you’ll want to use that prom
dress again. The downside is that this is still a very
new market so there aren’t a lot of opportunities for stuff you can rent. Our next group of apps is another traditional
job with babysitting apps like, Sitting Around and Sitter City. A lot of these apps aren’t just for your
traditional baby-sitting job though and include errand running or other odd jobs for families
or the elderly. You can get paid directly by the family in
cash or through credit cards on the app. As you can imagine, the requirements and process
is more strict than on other apps in our list. You’ll be invited into someone’s house,
entrusted with their kids and often without supervision. You’ll have to pass a background check with
a clean criminal record. Age requirements are less strict with minimum
of 14 years old allowed on most of the baby sitting apps. You’ll have an interview with staff from
the app as well as with each family before you begin work. You’ll fill out a profile on the site, detailing
any experience you have and will probably need to take first aid and CPR courses. Getting clients will mean going beyond with
activities with the kids and doing well enough to get referrals from other parents. You’ll also set your rate with most baby
sitters charging between $10 to $20 an hour depending on the area and experience. This chart by SitterCity shows the average
hourly for sitters and nannies by city with an average just under $15 for the U.S. That means an easy hundred a week on just
five or six hours including tips though this work can be stressful depending on who you’re
watching. Pros include the range of tasks you can get
paid for on these apps as well as the social interaction with families you help. The downsides often depend on the families
as well. Find a good family and the work is as easy
as pie. Find a kid from hell and you’ll work for
every penny. Our next category of apps, apps for investing,
I’m not sure is the same thing as the other websites in the list. Investing your money is different than making
more but I guess it’s a legit way to grow your money. To this short list, I’d also add apps like
M1 Finance and Robinhood. I prefer M1 because besides also being a no
cost investing app but it also offers the option to open retirement accounts which will
save you on taxes. I’m using M1 for our 2019 Stock Market Challenge
portfolio, up over 24% so far this year and nearly double the market portfolio. I’ve highlighted the Lending Club investing
app a few times on the channel including one video sharing the loan filter I use for double-digit
returns and lower defaults. I’ll link to that video in the description
below. It takes less than three minutes to open an
account on these investing apps, just requires your contact information and connecting your
bank account. Verifying your account will take a couple
of days but then you’ll be able to invest in stocks and peer-to-peer loans. The pros of these kinds of apps is the low-cost
investing option and both M1 and Lending Club have automated investing features to put any
available cash to work. It makes it a great way to invest without
the work of picking stocks. The downside compared to the other apps in
our list of course is that you need money to invest. I average returns of 10% on Lending Club but
it’s on money I had to make first. These next apps are some of the most popular
and it’s not just AirBnB but apps like Homeaway and VRBO are available everywhere to make
money from home. AirBnB reports the average host makes $924
a month though this varies greatly by city and by person. Rates charged tend to be slightly under the
rate charged on nice hotels in the city. Some people even buy apartments to rent out
on the site though you’ll need to check to make sure its allowable for your building. Renting out your entire home while you’re
away or renting a vacation home on apps like Homeaway can make even more money. Being a host, you first need to figure out
what level of service you’re offering. The majority on AirBnB offer only the room,
a separate bathroom and WiFi but others offer breakfast and other amenities for a higher
fee. AirBnB requires an ID from guests but does
no background check on hosts. That’s come under public pressure for some
bad incidents so it might change in the future. As it is, it takes less than 10 minutes to
list your room on the site. AirBnb collects the payment from guests and
pays you when the check in. The upside to home rentals is that, if you’re
not using the space, it’s basically money for nothing. It’s a little more stressing if you’ve
got longer-stay guests but most will only be there for a couple of nights. They’re in and out and you won’t even
notice. You might even enjoy the friendship and conversations
with travelers as they come and go. The downside is getting used to having strangers
in your home. Many hosts I know have installed separate
entry doors to their AirBnb rooms or at least a keyed door to the main living area. This next group of apps is my favorite for
making passive income self-publishing with sites like Kindle Direct, Smashwords and Nook. For all of you in the Let’s Talk Money community,
are ya tired of me talking about how much I love self-publishing yet? It’s one of my favorite passive income ideas
and I make just under two grand a month on the ten books I’ve published. I’ve got a playlist on the channel, a few
videos detailing how to get started self-publishing and how to make money. I’ll link to that in the description below
so make sure you check it out. While the details of self-publishing are how
you’ll make money, the basic process of uploading a book to these apps is easy. Most will upload from several formats including
Microsoft Word and pdf. After uploading your book, you’ll create
your book page on Amazon and the other apps. Your research to develop the book will show
you enough of these pages on other books that you’ll be able to do this for your book. Pros of self-publishing is that it can be
passive income, just upload your book and drive a few sales from a blog each month and
your books will stay ranked to make money. You can upload your book to several of these
apps just as easily as you do one and make hundreds a month on each book. If you’ve already got a blog or YouTube
channel, you’re already creating the content so why not put it together and format for
a book? The downside is that it takes a couple of
months to write a book and you’ll need to research for the topic. No single book is probably going to make you
rich but write a few and you’ll have a steady paycheck each month. Our next group of work from home apps is for
freelance writing and to find jobs on apps like problogger, listverse and mental floss. My first online jobs were writing for other
blogs and I got those jobs on the Problogger job board. Sure, you can get writing jobs on sites like
Upwork and Freelancer that we’ll talk about later but it helps to go straight to the websites
specifically for writing. It’s the difference between legit jobs ready
to hire versus sifting through all the lower-pay jobs that might not even be ready to go. Some of these sites may charge a subscription
to see job postings though I’d start with a few free ones to get the feel for it and
see if you like it. You’ll apply to each job individually and
handle all the details with each contract. That’s in contrast with a lot of the apps
on the list where you deal only with the app which acts as a go-between to handle payments
and other details. Most freelance writers, even newbies should
be able to charge from $0.10 a word though experienced writers will raise their rates
quickly. I was charging about $0.50 a word by the time
I stopped working freelance and I know some that charge as much as a dollar a word. Pros of these types of apps are that they
filter the jobs for legit opportunities in writing so you usually won’t have to put
up with all the stuff you find on other sites. The pay is higher and you’ll spend less
time chasing people down for payment. The downside is that you’ll have to do everything
yourself from finding jobs, contracting with people and collecting payment. Almost every freelance writer has a horror
story of a bad client or not getting paid. Another big category here, in fact the largest
with 18 money making apps listed, is selling art, design and crafts on sites like Etsy
and Amazon Handmade. This is a really broad category but there’s
also a lot of opportunity here. These are unique hand-made crafts and services
so you can charge a premium. The apps make it really easy to set up a shop
and start selling. In fact, that’s what you’re doing. You’re setting up a store just like a traditional
craft store but it’s all online. Etsy alone has over 29 million active buyers
every month and you can set up stores on several sites. I’d recommend starting on at least Etsy
and Amazon Handmade before expanding to other apps. Don’t overcomplicate your store, just get
started. You’ll need products and some professionally-looking
pictures. You’ll need a logo and a store name. It also helps to have a small budget for listings
and promoting your store. Etsy charges a $0.20 per item listing fee
plus 3.5% each time you make a sale. For payment processing, it charges 3% of the
price plus a $0.25 per item fee. So this is one where you’ll have to go into
it with a little bit of money first. You’ll need to produce those first few products
to get an idea of how much each costs to make and the time. Then you’ll want to budget in for the listing
fee and promoting your store. Another important tip is you need a plan for
delivering on big orders. You might be able to produce a dozen or so
a week but what happens when you get a rush order for a few dozen? Besides paid promotions on Etsy, you can promote
on social media and do guest posts on blogs to help get the word out about your store. Pros of setting up on crafts apps is that
you’re building a business that goes well beyond per hour or task work. You might get to a point that you’re hiring
out extra production to make more money. These craft apps already have millions of
people visiting the sites every month so it’s a ready-made audience of buyers. The downside is the money you need to start,
from buying supplies to the listing fees. You’ll also need to work hard to promote
your store, especially at first when you don’t have much word of mouth. A few more app categories left and this one
is going to be an easy money-maker for anyone with a grasp on their native language, making
money on proof-reading apps like Scribendi, Gramlee and Scribber. There are two types of jobs you’ll find
on these apps, proofreading and editing. Proofreaders are normally tasked with catching
grammar and spelling problems as well as syntax. Editors are more concerned with the organization
and readability of the material, how it’s put together for information and entertainment. You can do both these tasks but it’s important
to understand the different roles and skills you’ll need for each. The application process to these apps is fairly
quick but you’ll have to submit a writing sample. Formal education isn’t necessary but experience
is. Once on the platforms, you’ll be able to
pick assignments or be assigned when something needs proofing. Gramlee charges clients $0.03 per word and
pays editors from $12 to $20 an hour depending on your speed. Another app, Kibin reports proofreaders make
between $15 to $25 an hour. Pros to working on proofreading apps is that
there are no upfront costs or equipment. All you need is your internet connection and
knowledge of the language. You can take as many or as few projects as
you want and the pay is really good compared to some on the list. The downside is that it is that per hour work
so you’ll always be limited to your time available. You’ll also have to deal with revisions
on work that might not be compensated and most people will start out at the lower end
of the pay scale. This next set of apps to make money online
is another one we’ve talked about on the channel, selling photographs on sites like
Shutterstock, Getty Images and Alamy. Despite what a lot of people think, you don’t
necessarily have to be Annie Lebowitz or a gifted photographer to sell on these sites. Bloggers like me are constantly looking for
generic shots to use as background for video thumbnails and in blog posts. You can look on one of these sites and see
that most of the photos are just a setup of items, some even that you can create on your
computer but none are any kind of masterpiece photography. The way it works is you create an account
and upload your images. Now understand that they have to be good resolution
and some of these sites will reject as many as half of your images so it’s a numbers
game here. When someone downloads your photo for use,
the site splits the fee with creators so you’ll usually make from $0.50 to a few bucks each
time. You want to upload your photos to more than
one website, I would recommend at least five or six to give yourself the best chance of
making constant sales. Now there’s a lot of competition on these
sites so you might only make a few sales per photo each month. Like I said, this is definitely a numbers
game but it’s one that progressively builds your income each month. If you’ve got 200 images uploaded to five
sites and get even 150 sales per site, so even if not all your photos get a sale each
month, you can still make over a grand a month. That might take you a few months to take those
hundreds of photos but it’s all passive income after that. Every group of photos you upload will make
sales every month and continue to produce that cash flow. Pros to selling on stock photo apps is that
it is mostly passive income after uploading the images and your income grows with each
set of images uploaded. Getting good at using the camera can also
turn into a full-blown career. Cons are that you’ll need to buy the camera
and lighting equipment to get started. You’ll also need to study up on basic photography
and art. This next group of apps for making money are
more like websites but it’s video platforms like YouTube, Twitch and Dailymotion. I started devoting ten hours a week to my
YouTube channel in January of 2018 with just 20 subscribers. Just over a year later and I’ve got 69,000
in the community and have made over $23,000 on ads alone. That’s not including nearly $8,500 in sponsorships
and affiliate commissions. I now average $3,500 a month in YouTube ads
and another thousand or two in sponsorships and that number is growing every month. Put in the time to really engage with your
community and put out some solid content. This isn’t something that’s going to be
quick and easy. In fact, it will probably take more work than
some of the other apps but will turn into a long-term business. Your biggest hurdle to making money on YouTube
is just getting started. I know for a lot of people it can be intimidating
to put yourself out there, create a video and post it online. You need to get over that and just get started. Spend a week learning how to create and grow
a YouTube channel but set a firm deadline for uploading your first video. Pros of starting a video channel are that
this can become a long-term business you make a lot of money on. Most of the apps on the list pay per hour
or per task, limiting your earnings to that continuous work. Cons include just putting you out there on
camera and the commitment needed to produce a video consistently every week. You’ll also need to learn the business of
video and making money on a channel. That’s different from a lot of these apps
which are pretty quick to get started and making money. The next group of apps is really interesting
with voice work on sites like Voice Bunny, Voice 123 and Snap Recordings. This is a cool one and I guarantee more people
can do it than they think. Everyone thinks their voice sounds bad on
a recording but it’s usually not as bad as you think. I’ve narrated all my own audiobooks and
have never had complaints on my voice. You’ll set up an account on the voice-over
apps and upload a sample of your reading so people have an idea of how your voice sounds. You can set up a simple studio at home but
best is to find an inexpensive sound studio you can use by the hour. You set your rates on the apps but there are
basic guidelines. There’s a hundred dollar minimum per job
on and different rates guides depending on whether the recording will be broadcast
or not. You can easily get $100 for a 15-second recording,
$250 for a one-minute commercial and up to $3,000 for reading an audiobook. Voices charges a project fee of 20% on the
rate or you can have a project manager help you for a $300 fee plus the percentage commission. Pros of doing voice work are that you don’t
have to be on camera. Producing the projects is pretty quick, just
practicing and reading through the scripts. A few hundred dollars for less than an hour’s
worth of work makes these some of the best paying apps on the list. The downside is that you’ll need to rent
a sound studio or spend some money to create one from home. If you do it yourself, you’ll also need
to learn basic sound production and recording. Our final category of money making apps is
a catch-all, apps to find work we haven’t talked about yet and includes freelancers
apps like Fiverr and Upwork, assistant apps like Fancy Hands and IT apps like HelloTech
and Spare5. These are mostly broad freelancing apps that
cover many categories of work from creative jobs like writing and graphic design to technical
work in analysis and IT development. You’ll create a profile on the app and a
page listing your skills. You’ll then compete for available tasks
by offering a bid and writing up an application. These can be tough sites to make money. The tasks go out all over the world and you’ll
be competing with freelancers willing to do the work for much less. You’ll have to demonstrate that the quality
of your work is worth premium pricing. Another hurdle for new freelancers is you’ll
have to build up references and rankings on the platform. Breaking through these hurdles though and
this can be a full-time job and a solid income. It’s difficult to pin down pros and cons
on this group of freelancer apps. Most include lots of different categories
so you can potentially work in different tasks and get some experience in a lot of different
fields. That means less time spent trying to find
work in just one category. The downside is that many are not well reviewed
so many of the jobs available may go nowhere. You’ll also have more competition from freelancers
willing to price their services way below a reasonable wage. It’s a long list but I guarantee there are
some apps for making money that are perfect for you. You might not get rich with most of these
but you can easily make a solid income and you can set your own schedule. Look for the link to the full list in the

  2. Content, content, content! Solid video and damn, I should search some voice-over work this weekend.

  3. Joseph, because of your influence, I WILL leave my 9 to 5…….that's DEFINITE!! Thank you for ALL that you do!!!

  4. Thanks for creating & sharing this highly informative video. The key thing for me is to take action and try one or two of the apps in some of the categories that interest me. I’m grateful for this resource! Any things to be careful of when working with such apps?

  5. Great content Joseph, just subscribed and liked. I know another App that might be even a bit better than all these apps. look for an email from ESBModel.

  6. Excellent video, tons of value! All the info could have been easily made into 2 parts I'd say. More views, more clicks more likes. Thanks for the inspiration Joseph!

  7. For those who haven't started yet, this is valuable knowledge,value after value,hopefully I can use this to create another passive income streamguys be like Da Vinci , sounds silly but utilise your mind,

  8. Omg , you touched on every money earning app I can think of…for actual $$CASH$$- Bravo πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½β€’Β°β–ͺβ˜†

  9. I really appreciate how you grouped and arranged the app, it is very organised and you did your research well to give us a very informative and detailed video. Only that for me and a lot of other people, many if theses apps only apply on America, I live in Africa. But apps like online investment and survey apps, I'm already signed too, still I'm really happy and grateful with this

  10. I think this video is important and relevant to so many. Despite what USA news states, "unemployment is dropping" many of us over 50 are of course needing to work and it is harder and harder to get hired. I hear over and over how there is a real age bias when applying for work. I plan to share this video with many who are in need of earning some money where age is not necessarily an issue. Thank you, very helpful. VK

  11. I've used many of these apps and worked for many different companies and I got to say being your own boss and owning your own business ,having an eBay store is by far the best thing I've ever done.

  12. Love Robinhood. Also didn't even know about the "handyman" apps love that idea and gotta research and. Try it.

  13. you are the best thank you soooooooooooooooo mauch for your helpfull informations.

  14. Ugggh I’m tired of working and I just want to live in abundance. Can I just work from home πŸ˜ŒπŸ§˜πŸ½β€β™€οΈ
