I'm going to be starting college soon and I can already see myself getting overwhelmed between schoolwork and a part time job. I'll be living with my parents so I won't have to worry about rent but they don't buy me anything expect for birthdays and holidays. Do any of you guys make money online? Please share, I'm pretty desperate. Also, how much do you make?

Inb4 Camwhoring, Not an option. I live with my parents.

>Please share, I'm pretty desperate
Why? What do you so desperately need to buy if you are taken care of your folks by living with them, being housed by them, fed and clothed by them, and having your future invested in by them paying your college?

…drugs? I can't imagine anything good.

No. 62759

If you are so desperate just get a real part time job? Why does it have to be online?
Starbucks is part time and they work with your schedule

No. 62760

Well, college is actually free for me. I have the excelsior scholarship to thank for that. Anyway, like I said, I only live here. My major is going to require a lot so I won't have energy or time to work parttime. If you want to know what I desperately need to buy, it's a computer and clothing.

No. 62761

I have tried, but my anxiety and lack of an ability to interact with other humans gets the best of me.

No. 62766

Thanks for such valuable input. Don't know why my comment offended you but I'm glad I'm not a degenerate cunt who gets triggered by other people's comments online. If you don't make money online fuck off. Not every wants to or even can work a physical job while in college.

No. 62767

How about you take a deeper look at yourself, and what provoked those comments?

We are strangers who bear no ill will towards you. Our reaction is a consequence of you doing something wrong.

No. 62769

Honestly don't see any wrongdoing. Also don't need a therapy sesh from you. How about you take a deeper look at the OP and answer the question?

No. 62770

Online work is still work. You are still going to have to devote significant time to it. If you're writing articles or making videos you have to put in a lot of hours to produce a final product that is actually going to make money. There's no such thing as a free lunch. Hell, even camwhoring takes a certain amount of time and money being invested before it can be profitable. It's a competitive marketplace.

If you want to have significant spending money without having to spend serious time working to earn it, maybe you should look into getting a sugar daddy. Because if there was a way for shut-ins to earn dosh just by fooling around online for a few minutes here and there, the world would be full of NEET millionaires.

No. 62772

Sugar Daddies and Cam stuff is just a meme here right? Selling your bodies is gross and no self respecting women does that shit.

Back to ur initial response, I totally understand that online work is work too but you cannot compare it to physically getting up and doing shit. That's just common sense.

No. 62773

anon I'm around the same age as you and I'm super avoidant/anxious so I get where you're coming from but you've really just gotta get over it, as harsh as that sounds. I'd suggest solitary jobs (janitor, overnight stocking at a store, even farm work can be pretty solitary). You've got it pretty cushy right now, I'd suggest working toward whittling down that fear of other people before it's forced on you.

No. 62774

Thanks anon. I work very well on my own so that's why I looked into online work. I will consider your suggestions though.

No. 62776

It's not a "meme". Plenty of women use sugar daddies in order to pay for their college education. If you were that desperate, you would too. Beggars can't be choosers.

As for making money online, I have no idea how as most everything online is a scam. I babysat throughout secondary school and did my homework while the kids were asleep. I got another child-minding job for four years while in college. I have anxiety too but it's not an excuse. I hated having to deal with parents who were just dying for me to slip up and claim I'm abusing their ~precious child~. In fact, the people I worked with were even worse as some of them looked down on me because I wasn't fully qualified yet and they treated me like a perpetual child who couldn't do basic tasks like mop the floor. I was in constant fear of being left alone and a child choking, I hated making lunch-time conversation with my co-workers and I did everything 150% so that nobody could complain about me being a clueless, lazy, under-qualified teenager to the point where I was fucking exhausted. But I still did it. If you were that desperate, you would too.

You just have to suck it up and get into a routine. If you're that bad then it's worth paying for counselling and meds, not splashing out on computers and clothes because mental health is more important than anything else.

No. 62777

Listen, everyone's experiences are different. I'm sorry you had to go through that stress but you don't know my circumstances. Being looked down upon because I'm a teenager isn't something I'm worried about. Anxiety has levels.

Also, the computer is for school and I currently have holes in my all clothes (Nope, not the yeezy collection). I'm not desperate to the point of compromising myself or my reputation. I just want to be able to study hard and work from home for the sake of my mental health and my family.

No. 62778

I did take a deeper look. That's exactly why I responded by questioning you further instead of just replying.

If you reach out for advice, better be ready to be confronted with things that make you uncomfortable. And there's no point in reaching out at all if you're going to discard anything that doesn't fit your fancies.

I pretty much agree with what the rest of the posters say and advise.

No. 62779

I know they do and I'm sure I don't know your situation but what I'm saying is that working while studying was fucking hard. I ended up with weak and grey hairs, my nails stopped growing, I gained a lot of weight, my skin was in poor condition and I damaged my teeth from grinding them. But when you need money, you need money and it was a short-term solution.

I definitely don't think your situation is as dire as you make it out to be if you've shot down most of the suggestions people have given above and you've talked down girls who are in ACTUAL desperate situations by calling them "gross" and saying that they have "damaged reputations". So you're desperate but not that desperate? There's no need to be such a snob. What have you even thought of doing online, could I ask? Or did you hope we'd be able to point you to some survey website that pays minimum wage? Because if that existed, everyone would know about it and nobody would bother getting an actual job.

Tbh I don't feel sorry for you because you seem like an ass.

No. 62781

Didn't make this thread for pity. Also why do I have to be desperate to the point of selling myself? Isn't that just integrity and self respect? I just wanted to hear how others are making money online. Is that such a heinous crime that deserves insults?

No. 62783

There's no way to make quick money online that doesn't involve fetish shit.

If you have social anxiety/don't want to deal with people then look for irl jobs that are like that, though these are also pretty rare. You could see if your university has student jobs (typically secretarial work), or find a job at a small shop or something. You're going to have to interact with people though, esp at uni so I don't know what you're expecting to do in that situation.

No. 62785

Why are you doing this? The person tried to help you at your own prompting, and now you're twisting her words and painting yourself a victim.

That you are an ass is not an insult, but an observation. You definitely have been acting like an ass ITT and still are.

We are here to help. As always, it's not the kind of help you want, but the kind of help you need.

No. 62786

Wew this was a big mistake. Either you guys have a really skewed way of looking at things or I'm being samefagged. Anyway, Janny you can delete this thread. I triggered to many people.

No. 62787

lmao, it didn't take long for this thread to take a wrong turn.
Honestly who cares if OP doesn't want to work a real job right now while in school. Considering I'm sure a good portion of users here are NEET or have anxiety issues.

No. 62788

Don't be a baby and get a real part time job. I used to have really bad social anxiety and had no social skills whatsoever, but getting my first part time job helped me improve tremendously. There were some major break downs in the beginning, but it was worth it in the end. You can work in a library in campus if you have to. Nobody ever really bugs the workers, and it's quiet enough where you can study during downtime.

And you can make time. Your college is paid for and so is your rent. I was taking 20+ credits for awhile in a god awful major and still worked part time in order to pay for food and a roof over my head, half the time I still barely made enough.

It sounds like you're not willing to try and work hard and get outside your comfort zone.

I do recommend not getting a job right away though. Starting college is a big enough change as it is, so you might want to adjust first.

No. 62790

She did get some help in the thread but mainly ignored it in favour of turning it about being against camwhoring.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to do a job online, but she seems to want one that is easy since she will be busy with her program which doesn't really exist online. E-jobs are largely like doing your own business, so you'll have to spend a shitton of time on them. Gaining a following to the extent where you can get sponsors takes daily posting, months of waiting and luck. Task-monkey jobs are long and pay pennies, translation jobs are usually only to credited people. It's not easy finding a job online.

No. 62791

Sure, it's certainly not you that's at fault. Must be all the others, yup.

No. 62793

I never said that it'd be easy or that I was looking for an simple job that requires little effort. Physical jobs are a last resort for me. Does no one believe I can do difficult work. lol

No. 62794

tbh most online work just amounts to extra money on the side. For resources try looking at reddit.com/r/beermoney or if you live in a city or college town craigslist can be helpful for such things like focus groups and such for money.
Another thing I found that might bring you money online is tutoring or talking with Chinese students

No. 62802

>but she seems to want one that is easy since she will be busy with her program which doesn't really exist online.

This plus the fact that most of us do have some kind of work ethic and it's pretty insulting to have someone turn their nose up at both real jobs and the jobs women actually get when they are in desperate situations since we've all had to grit our teeth and bear them despite the challenges we've faced. It strikes me as really snobbish and bratty tbh. There are plenty of on-campus jobs I could reccomend to someone with anxiety as I've been there myself but I'm not going to reccomend them to people who just want an "easy" job because they're not bothered to get a real one.

>simple job that requires little effort. Physical jobs are a last resort for me.

And that's exactly why nobody is entertaining you, brat. You came here looking for advice and turned your nose up to people's suggestions. When you seek advice, you should thank whoever is giving it and you can choose to not take it on board. There's a life lesson they won't teach you in college.

No. 62816

>simple job that requires little effort

wew lad. you say you are able to work hard but then don't want to? i live with my parents and besides food they don't buy shit for me so just save up. i don't see why you're looking down at part time jobs. I know a few kids who work at gas stations and just sit on their ass and play video games or watch shows half the time. if you got a job there you could learn to socialize a bit while having a SHIT ton of time to study while no one is paying for gas.

the only job i did online that took no effort was being affiliates with weeby online taobao reseller stores. they give you a coupon code and you advertise their products on your tumblr blog or wherever else. if you're pretty enough with enough followers you get free shit to review too, so free clothes. but with comission i only made like 200$ in like 6 months, since you could only be getting 50 cents to a couple of dollars each time someone uses your code.

but yeah next time don't sound like such a bitch? you're obviously not desperate. wait til your birthday to get money for some clothes or go thrift shopping. or you know, get an actual job like a thousand other girls who are actually desperate? geez

(also last thing after this huge post, but i swear ive seen this thread before?? with the exact same op picture, or am i just crazy?)

No. 62832

is donating plasma really worth it? i work but obviously don't make enough to afford luxury things and side money would help especially something easy like that. if theres anything else i could do online that would help because i cant drive yet (was ill so i didnt get to take a drivers test and im still recovering atm) what are some things i can do at home that make some sort of cash too?

No. 62840

Holy shit, is mystery.jpg back?

No. 62841

OP you don't have anxiety you just think you do because you grew up on chans and tumblr like a retard. Get a part time job. Some easy ones are tutoring school kids, proofreading and editing essays for foreign students, working at a library, working in a quiet retail store.

Also if you've NEVER worked before and don't plan to at all during college fucking lmao at your prospects of getting a job after graduating mate. Getting good grades doesn't make you special, there will be a million people with grades as good as yours PLUS a long history of work experience and extracurriculars :^)

No. 62847

To me I don't really think so because I don't like needles, but a ton of people do it and while it is only $20-40 a session that does equate to a lot for the 1-2 hrs it took.
I don't know about other places but in my area they don't give you cash, they give you a card that charges you to use, so people come in to my work to withdraw the cash off the card it sometimes it's less than the original amount.

No. 62849

Work experience in babysitting and waiting tables doesn't count when you're applying for a job in the medical field or law, Einstein. You get actual work experience through interning and traineeships, which usually require none to begin with.

No. 62851

how does one go about proofreading and editing foreign students essays? is it online?

No. 62854


Lmao if you think internships and traineeships want people with no working experience think again, especially in law dumbass. They want referees and to see you have work discipline, teamwork and interpersonal skills. Sage cause derailing but you sound neet as hell to think you can just walk into roles like that when most college students have lined up years of work over you

No. 62856


Put posters up around different unis and post ads on Craigslist, Gumtree or whatever Americans use for those kinda services. You can just do it online and charge per hour/paper by PayPal but giving feedback in person is better.

No. 62860

If you are really desperate you can consider being a camgirl or getting a sugar daddy. Not a real job but not a lot of effort but you need time. I think there is a thread in /ot/ about getting sugar daddies without involving anything sexually explicit.
Also, what kind of habilites do you have? some programing skills or maybe artistry? If you know how to illustrate you can do request for little money.

No. 62862

>I think there is a thread in /ot/ about getting sugar daddies without involving anything sexually explicit.

No guy is gonna pay you money unless you're at least sending nudes.

Very few exceptions, don't bet on you being one of them.

No. 62866

First of all, fuck you if you think you'll find an easy job that pays decently online lmao. You won't.

Now the only way to make money online is to have some entrepreneurial skills : Find something you can do (do resumes, build simple portfolio websites, take pictures, draw or make personalised postcards, anything) assuming you have the basic skills then advertise to the right people, usually on specific facebook groups.

Now if you have no skills whatsoever there's very few things you will be able to do online as there's a lot of foreigners accepting pennies for the same job. But if you manage to locate websites where you can advertise freely (Craiglist, facebook, whatever) you might make about $20 a commission which is nothing much but can help you at the end of the month.

No. 62871

I don't know where you live but I've gotten multiple internships and two scholarships just fine on account of my good grades and extracurriculars. I study finance and banking.

Sorry your babysitting job is the only good thing you've got going for you I guess.

No. 62908

>no need to watch whole video, just click link in descript box after getting the jist

I just signed up today so I can't tell you if it works just yet, but hell surveys and writing websites are the only legit ways of getting cash online if ur not influential or selling product

No. 62909


this thread went sour real fast, but anon if you want a lot of money just for clothes and stuff you can find a really tiny like <20 hour a week job. i work online from home all day and its a lot more work than those kind of jobs,

online work =/= easier work
working from home =/= easier
having a company or team that manages you tells you what to do and you just need to show up and do it then clock out and your life isnt consumed by working with no off time = easier

if you have skills some suggestions like proofreading or teaching online for a cheap price is a good idea but if your anxiety is the thing thats getting to you its hard to make money without some kind of interaction that might make you anxious, phone calls or skype calls or anything. the best jobs for people with anxiety are night time/evening jobs, cleaning jobs, stocking jobs, and stuff that just kind of is obviously loner bait. good luck i hope you get clothes without holes one day

No. 62966

I've talked to a co-manager where I work about this recently, this new phenomenon of young adults thinking it's okay to use "Oh I have to go home, I have anxiety" or "I'm bipolar, I can't do this" as excuses at work.

So, do you think we're the first generation in existence to have anxiety? Mood disorders? Panic attacks?

No. We aren't special.

We are however, the first generation to actively make excuses for our laziness and instead of acting like adults we are regressing to childlike states and relying on the internet as a crutch instead of doing the right thing and pushing through. Fuck. It's embarrassing. Excuse after excuse after excuse. Every single person giving their life story as an excuse to their behavior. That isn't how life works, that isn't how the real world works.

You get a fucking job like the rest of us. Your issues are not special. You are not special.

I struggled with this when I was younger, and I spent ages 18 and 19 unemployed, broke, and completely depressed thinking I wouldn't ever be capable of working around people.

Now I'm in my early 20s and cringing at how I acted when I was younger, like a melodramatic brat. Work sucks, no shit. I deal with a lot of bullshit–but so does everybody else. I struggle, I feel anger over how it feels like I put forth so much effort and get little in return but for fucksake so does EVERYBODY ELSE.

You can spend your life crying in your bedroom and spending hours on the internet making excuse after excuse as to why you can't put in your dues like the rest of us but at the end of the day you're only hurting yourself and your ability to interact with other humans. You'll spend the rest of your life as a parasite relying on other people and bursting into tears every time a stranger looks at you funny. Have fun with that.

No. 62967

Are you studying Full time or part time. If it's full time and you'd get overwhelmed from full time study and part time work, maybe just studying and working part time might be worth the compromise of having to spend more years studying?

No. 62968

You sound like a cunt.

No. 62970

We have anxiety because nowadays it is so hard to get a job. We're told by everyone if we don't get a college degree we will be working useless minimum wage jobs the rest of our lives, and then when we graduate and enter the job force there are practically no jobs. Yeah sure if you're a stem major you may be fine

Its, for the most part, baby boomers and republican's fault for fucking millenials over.

I think anon was addressing those NEET types with social anxiety that don't want to work shitty jobs because ~muh feefee's~. I'm one of those people. I haven't left my house in months because of mental illness, but I know that I'll have to get out and get a wagecuck job eventually to support my lifestyle. Yeah it was harsh, but anon spoke the truth and you took offensefor some reason

No. 62976

Yes. I was.

I knew that NEETs would come out of the woodwork taking full offense and flinging insults.

Get a job.

And? There are thousands and thousands in third world countries who would kill to have the opportunities we do. Sitting around on the internet crying about it for the rest of your life and recycling the same excuses as to why you can't get a job is hardly productive. Do you hear yourself?
And hilarity of calling me an autistic cunt. I don't think that you know what autistic means at this point, you insufferable baby.

Lel if you get a job you're brainwashed! You're a wagecuck! Sucking on your parents' teets and never leaving the house is how we fight the economy and make positive changes in the world! Yeah!!!1

No. 62979

Do you really think we should just accept the current circumstances in our world, with the real estate bubbles and lower wages that barely sustain a decent living? With the collapse of our ecosystem and fast growing world population that at the same time makes human life worth nothing?

Sure, go ahead and be a fucking sheep, gobble up all the shit that the society wants you to swallow. But I will never be content with the way things are going even though I do have a job. Social anxiety is common mostly because a lot of young adults get to realize that working hard doesn't net you much. And sometimes, not even working smart. What's the point in doing anything with high expectations of our modern day society that describes success and value in terms of money. The social media just make it worse.

Go tell people that studied a non meme degree and can't find work, tell them in their face how to get over themselves. Or go tell someone that is overqualified doing some shitty job with shitty hours after putting aprox 5 years into university, to get over with depression and muh feelings. Go fucking neck yourself.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

I'm in school and my program gets really busy on and off, so I need flexible work. It's okay if the pay isn't great, I just want to supplement my pocket money.

I signed up for Amazon Mechanical Turk, but they seem to pay like shit for the work you do. I like taking surveys and would do things like that or being a research guinea pig for money. I'm also a pretty good writer, have good manners, done copywriting, and can do tech support, so I've thought about flexible or part-time work in any of those.

I know I said it seems like Mechanical Turk pays like shit, but maybe I just don't know what I'm doing. What were your tactics using it?

Try r/paidstudies. Some studies require a phone portion.

No. 69378

Surveyjunkie, earn points by doing surveys and you can cash out at $10 and you can put it into your PayPal when you cash out. My parents do this and they've already got $40 saved into PayPal for rainy days.

Things to know, you might not qualify for some surveys and you sometimes have to be careful with your answers or you're kicked out. So you can just lie your way through to qualify.

Good luck anons.

No. 69489


It's probably not the answer you'll want, but I basically did that shit all day. And I tried to do as many of the studies/survey type hits that I could, or transcribing videos. The studies/surveys pay best, and the transcribing hits pay less but if you do lots and lots of them, it adds up.

There are scripts you can run that will help you find good/well paying hits, such as tampermonkey.

This is so ridiculous.

All of us have found it difficult to find and keep a decent job for at least the past forty years. Millennials are not special nor are they different from, say, gen x in this regard.

They just pretend it's harder for them and think if they bitch about it long enough, people will believe them.

Kind of like how millennials latched on to identity politics and ruined the Democratic Party with its BS 'progressive' concerns.

No one cares about who you sleep with, your self dx'ed mental illness, how you identify, or what color your skin is. None of these things make you special or interesting or anything. Welcome to the human race and the world of grown ups. God, I hate millennials. I can't wait for everyone to figure out that you're the y2k version of boomers, only more autistic.

No. 69637

I don't know why this turned into such a shit show. Fucking duh it's better to get a stable job, but this random ass person isn't asking out about that.

The stuff I've been doing to earn money online:

If you have some money to invest you can use robin hood app to start investing in stocks. I'd recommend SERIOUSLY doing your research first, though. It's not going to be as good as a real firm or other apps, but it's completely free so long as you don't fuck up or apply for their gold membership, which I wouldn't recommend at all. I've made a few thousand dollars but it's better for long term investments. Penny stocks can be profitable short term, but, like I said, you have to really do your homework. There's a couple good youtube channels if you look up robin hood and general advice. There's also a thread on /biz/ but it's generally a bad place for advice, good place to see people invest in stuff you shouldn't. You might find some good tips from time to time but tread extremely carefully. You can obviously also lose money if you're not careful.

Only other thing I can think of would probably be fiverr. If you have any marketable skill (I do image editing and voice over) you can usually charge a decent amount depending on the type of content they want. If you do something with sound editing or voice you can offer more incentives like adding in copyright free music or sound effects for extra charges. Take a look at the best people in the field you want to go into there and start doing something kind of alike, then market out to your facebook, twitter, etc and you'll eventually start showing up higher on searches. Make sure you use tags too. Don't fuck up and always go out of your way for good feed back, don't shill people out of stuff if you're tired or depressed. Always do your work.

I usually make a couple thousand a month, sometimes more depending on how much I put into it, but I have another job so I don't have as much time as I'd like to for it.

> I usually make a couple thousand a month, sometimes more depending on how much I put into it, but I have another job so I don't have as much time as I'd like to for it.

Nice. I also freelance on Fiverr, but in the web design/development area. I only make a few hundred bucks per month, so it's a nice pocket money but I wish I could get it to few thousands, what are your secrets? And when did you start? I started seriously a few months ago but now I have something you could call regulars. Feels good.

if you're going for stocks then AMD recently took a huge hit despite showing a 300% increase in revenue

What kind of news sources or other resources do you use to learn that specific stock were affected because of an increase in revenue or a short seller? I think it'd be awfully time consuming to go through the news of each company on the stock market one at a time.

Any girls here in crypto? I wanted to get kind of into it but ended up not being dedicated enough to learn in the afternoons ;_; I did make a couple of hundreds out of eth and btc movements but that was mostly luck and it's a comically low amount of money considering what others are making

I secretly wish someone would spoonfeed me the info

Hello, I'm into crypto too but sadly I'm basically in the similar situation as you and just gamble with shitcoins..

You can totally make money online. These anons are crazy.

InboxDollars is legit. You get paid to take surveys and sign up for mailing lists (which you can then unsubscribe from). You can cash out once you've earned $30. You won't make a living from it but you can earn a little spending cash.

The best online jobs are Lionbridge or Appen. You have to apply with a resume and take an exam (it's fairly difficult - you'll have to study). But if you pass, it's awesome! You can work up to 20 hrs a week for $12/hr. It's all online and you make your own schedule. Plus you get paid training seminars and a 401k!

speechpad. its a transcription site. they also list jobs on mechanical turk but I was approved. which is weird cause I have an amazon account. maybe its because I bought weed stuff. anyway, I applied and passed everything. when it came time to qualify for jobs I struck out. you have to transcript a speech. mine was mark Zuckerberg. first they speed up the tape and second he talks a mile a minute. the interviewer was gay so that didn't help.
however if you can follow along they have 1 minute jibs. I just couldn't get pass mark.

No. 69770

Harsh but I very much agree with this. If you're so desperate for a job you'll apply for literally anything and suck it up. I was at kfc for my last job, my socially retarded ass couldn't fit in, fucking hated it and would go home and cry most nights but I needed that job, I needed that sense of purpose and reason to get out the house more than anything. You suck it up and get on with it. I've since been fired for "Not learning fast enough" which I think means being weird as fuck and not fitting in because the job was mind numbingly easy. Although still stressful because of the fast pace. targets and customer service aspect. sage for blog.

Yeah OP sounds like an over privileged little cunt tbh.

honestly i think online jobs are a waste of time unless you're persuading them as an extra side thing not as your main.
i too was terrified of getting a normie job (and was afraid if i would ever get one because of how useless i am) but now i have been working as a nightshift shelf stacker for over a year and honestly it has helped me with my anxiety quite a bit by forcing me to interact with a limited circle of people on a regular basis (good baby steps versus being thrown into waitressing or something like that) and the money's also nice because of bonus for working in strenous circumstances lol

No. 69872

Sorry totally forgot about this thread, but the tips I'd give would probably be:

I have cards made and hand them out to people if we get into talking what I do for a living and they seem interested. It has less to do with online income in that case, but if you're a social outgoing person and don't hand them out whilly nilly, only when the person seems like they need someone for that specific area, you'll get some clients. I get a lot of work through facebook when someone just sends me a message going "Oh right, you do blank, right? blank recommended me to you." Sometimes people I've worked with on fiverr will contact me later on for other products or projects, or refer friends to me. You have to be at a pretty high level for the trade you're offering, but offer a higher level "better" option on your page that makes the others seem less desirable. You'll still get people who pick the 5 buck option occasionally, but less and less often. Also it helps to send people a quick email or message a couple weeks after and ask them if the stuff you supplied them with worked for whatever project they were using it for, when I do that I get more outreach for work later on I've noticed. Just pretty much networking and building relationships with your clients. I've gotten some good stuff for my resume/portfolio specifically because I reached out and found out what the fuck I was working on, so I'd recommend it. Also, if you can, have a specialized website with samples of your work where you negotiate without fiverr. Once you start to do it more you'll get more work.

The only problem I've had is, like I said, I don't have enough time. I sometimes have to wait list people and they'll end up going with someone else. It's not a shit humblebrag but it helps that the things I do on there I also often utilize at work so I've gotten a shit ton of practice and time in, you have to really invest in the trade you're selling or they'll go with someone who's putting more into it. Also deliver the best quality of work you can, if something looks fucked up but you've already moved on and you just noticed it hours later go back, open it back up, and fix it. Start over if you have to. Don't undervalue yourself, if it's a big project that requires hours make sure you have an option on your page that reflects the price mark, don't get into the "ugh this is only 10 dollars fuck it!" mindset. Do it like thousands of people will see or hear it, because despite what you think, sometimes they really do use your stuff on things that end up getting seriously big and you don't want it to reflect poorly on you, you want people to hear it and try to seek you out for their shit.

Robinhood's kind of just baby's first stocktrading app. It doesn't have all the listings that a normal trader would but it's free and without the normal fees you pay per trade. I'd recommend watching some youtube videoes about it and generally trying to understand stocks a little before you jump in, but there's a lot of good information out there now. (also you can't pull your funds out for 60 days so don't put your entire savings in, just a warning)

The first is a scam and I know it from personal experience, the other one has bad reviews all over so I assume it's equally as bad.

The only ways to actually make money from home are two, and both require dedication: it's either freelance work (copywriter, artist etc.) or camming. No other way round. All those ad rating sites, survey sites… make you only lose your time and barely get anything.

No. 70384

Lionbridge is most certainly not a scam. I work for them currently and always get paid on time, no problem. If you can pass the exam, it's 100% legit. I can see how you might think it's a scam if you don't pass the exam… but nope! It's a totally real job. The company is really nice to their workers, too. They're constantly sending me paid training courses and webinars. If you can do the work, they pay you generously. It's a really sweet gig.

No. 70386

To me it went very differently. I passed the exam actually, everything fine, I learned their guidelines pretty fast, always followed them to a t and they said it was all good.

What's a safe way for people to transfer money to me that won't have my real identity attached?

No. 82056

Google wallet, circle pay, and amazon giftcards or sell through a website (theyll take a %) and get direct deposits. When signing up only use your stage name and when people pay ask they leave any and all “notes” empty because if they mention sex work your accounts will be locked since it’s against their TOS. While advertising on other sites helps you should have a free public account you post teases on, I make most of my sales through there.
I currently make around $700-800 a month through my Snapchat, I sell monthly subscriptions through a website. I’m going to assume you already know all the risks and ins and outs of how this can effect your life. @ other anons please don’t fight me on whether I’m a degenerate or not, I don’t care to have that argument again lol.

also white collar sex work stuff isn't really harming women, they aren't part of the porn industry because they're just self-employed. it's shitty, but only when they try to act like the girls who are at risk every day being pimped out.

Yes, it's disgusting to participate in normalizing sex work because, again, it's harmful to women. You're teaching men that they can purchase a woman's sexuality. But sure, be content in being "your own boss" and taking the easy way out. It's sad how little work ethic other women have nowadays.

Isn’t the girl on the date proving her “sexuality” can be purchased with dinner and a movie?

Keep on thinking that self employment is easy, I’m not gonna try convincing you otherwise since you’ve made it clear the kind of person you are.

I'm pretty anti-sex work over all, but shitting on the women who participate in it is gross and the ultimate example of exclusionary feminism.

No. 82556

yeah seriously. i'm not necessarily pro-sex work for a variety of reasons but it's not because i think the actions of individual sex workers make women look bad. That mentality is almost the entire reason misogynists are misogynists. It shouldn't matter if some women are unambitious because we know plenty of women are honest hard workers. Women have a wide variety of motivations, philosophies, priorities, shortcomings, and skills because we're fucking humans. We shouldn't need to all be the perfect example of female excellence to be treated as such. To generalize women so much that you think the existence of sex workers reflects on us as a whole is way more misogynistic than anything the average sex worker is doing.

It shouldn't matter if there are women out there who are the embodiment of the worst most patriarchal female stereotype you can think of. We should be judged as individuals the way that men are, not lumped together as a hivemind constantly fearing that one of us will slip up and thereby confirm that we're all a bunch of bimbos.

No. 82569

I'm not shitting on women who are involuntarily involved in it. I think that if you have a choice to do honest work and you CHOOSE to go into the industry, then you're making the situation work. Of course I have sympathy for those who are forced into the sex industry. But "I have social anxiety" is not a valid reason IMO.

No. 82573

that's fine but why does that make you think that women in general have a shit work ethic? Even though sex work is more accepted now it's still a vast minority of women.
If your perception of women can be worsened by the behavior of a small class of women, how can you ever expect us to be treated as equals and respected in society? There's always going to be dumb, lazy, scheming, scamming, manipulative, and evil women, as well as combinations of all of those because that's true of any group. The whole problem is that we're objectified so much that people see the actions of a few women as a reflection of us all. Whereas with men, if you do the same thing you're seen as a misandrist. Men are often assumed to be competent and superior until they prove otherwise and women are often assumed to be incompetent and inferior until they prove otherwise.

Sorry for the late reply.

The work is completely anonymous, all you do is send and answer to messages on your computer, never any videos or calls or anything related to you in person.

It pays per message sent, and how much one can earn in an hour depends on how fast you can type and whether there are enough messages to be answered.

I'd rather not advertise the company, since they're super strict about any online talk, but I found it when I googled "chat operator job Europe", it's mentioned on the first page results. There are several companies in the same field, the one I work for is European, but I know there are some American ones as well.

Sure you can find threads about all of these companies in reddit and elsewhere, no matter how strict their policies are.

I actually tried Gotranscript myself, but I was so ridiculously slow doing it that I gave up, it took me like more than 2 hours for a 10 minute file, pathetic.

No. 116899

It's really good that you gave up. The pay is insanely low for the work that you do and the editors are getting way more aggressive and unfair with ratings these days. I started way back when you could have easily climbed to the editor status in matter of days which meant better pay for presumably less work. There was a larger number of files with decent audio quality and the editors were okay most of the time. Now, it's pointless. It's difficult to maintain a good rating with editors being nitpicky and being an editor isn't that great either because it's more difficult to raise a bad rating (a lot of clients have high standards for the shit audio they give). Rev as terrible as it is at least pays a bit better and there are interesting files to choose from. I have completely stopped doing any transcription or captioning work. The crisp clear audio files are given to the AI, the potato recorded focus groups or foreign people speaking in English are now the staple of human transcribers. Sadly, there are people willing to work with such files and for such a low pay.

sorry for the vent.
