3 Ways to Earn Money Online Right Now - The Massive Jamaica

As a young adult I’ve always wanted to be able to make my own money.

The trouble with that was I never had enough time. I was going to school, participating in extracurricular activities, and making time for my friends and family.

A 9-5 job was out of the question so I had to find something that I could do in the little free time I had. My best option was to find an online job with flexible hours or a way in which I could earn passive income.

As some of you know, passive income is earned from any enterprise in which a person is not actively involved. And three ways I’ve found you can passively earn money online from home is through freelance websites, online surveys and creating ebooks.

Join a freelance website

Freelance websites like Fiverr and Upwork are some of the best places for freelancers to find remote jobs – which can be done anywhere in the world.

Fiverr can be used 24/7. The jobs offered are diverse and unique, with each person requesting something they personally need done. These include graphic designs, writing and translation, music and audio, and digital marketing.

There are no hourly rates, just a fixed price, so you know exactly what you’ll be getting paid.

Upwork is more or less the same, except for the fact that they have hourly rates as well.

Taking part in online surveys

Another way to earn money online is by taking part in online surveys.

The beauty about an online survey is that it can be done anywhere, unless it’s not available in your region.

Remote online surveys include websites like Inbox Dollars, Swagbucks, Opinion Outpost, Prize Rebel, Vindale Research, Pinecone Research, My Survey and Toluna.

All you’ll need to do is sign up to start taking surveys so that you can earn points which can later be redeemed for cash, amazon gift cards or PayPal cash payouts.

 Writing ebooks can help you earn money online

Creating an ebook is another way you can generate some passive income.

All you have to do is find something you’re really good at or knowledgeable about, and then write a book about it.

I have an ebook that generates quite a bit of money which is paid out to me monthly by Amazon.

After uploading the book all I had to do was sit back and watch the money come in. And as someone with only a little time to spare this was one of the most effective ways for me to make some extra money.

5 Costly mistakes you’re making on social media when it comes to getting a job



5 Costly mistakes you're making on social media (Landscape) - The Massive Jamaica

When you use social media it’s all about the quality of your posts and the audience you attract. You should use social media in a positive way that makes you look professional and work ready.

Companies use background checks as a reliable way of verifying claims made by applicants when they go for a job. And because we’re living in a world of technology, they use that technology to their advantage when screening prospective hires. 

But here are 5 things that might be messing up your chances of getting the job.

You use social media has a venting outlet

Many people use social media as a venting outlet to release anger and oftentimes say what they think without considering the consequences of their actions. 

You may be having a bad day, may have had a disagreement with someone or may have had a bad experience at a particular location. And then you choose to vent about it on social media out of anger. 

Things like that only leave employers to think one thing. And that is, if they hire you and you get angry you’ll tarnish the company’s image in the same way you’ve already tarnished your own.

You share too much of the wrong information

You should be very mindful of the things you share and the source that your information is coming from. 

Think before you broadcast. 

Ask yourself: is the source of the information I’m sharing credible? And do your research before sharing. This is how fake news gets spread, and you really don’t want to be a part of that.

Poor usage of grammar and spelling

Communication is a core skill that’s needed in any work environment. And If you’re constantly making spelling and grammatical errors on social media it only leaves employers to think that you might not be able to express yourself well through writing or even face to face communication.

Are you posting inappropriate pictures online?

Posting inappropriate pictures on social media can really damage your image. 

You have to be professional with your online brand, and understand that whatever is seen on your pages is what potential employers use to judge you as a candidate. 

Posting sexual content and promoting drugs, alcohol, violence or any illegal activities only shows you up in a negative light. And employers are looking to hire candidates who they believe can positively reflect their organization. 

So, it’s best to clean up your image if you want a shot at that dream job of yours.

When was the last time you updated your account?

An account that’s out of date tends not to be a good look. It may be time to update your account and be more consistent with your posting regime.

Social media is a useful tool to show off your skills and personality, share your hobbies, friendships, and achievements. And employers want to see how well you network and build engagement to create your personal brand before they start to trust you with theirs.
