Making money on the Internet is certainly possible, although perhaps not as easy to succeed as an affiliate marketer or even a freelancer as it was five years ago, due to the incredible amount of competition. Learning the ins and outs of Internet marketing requires a certain amount of time, as there is quite a steep learning curve. However, there are a number of sites that will pay you to do stuff that you can take advantage of, until your endeavours for a passive income take off. Here we will look at couple of sites that pay you to answer questions.

Just Answer

Just Answer provides a service connecting people with a problem to an expert in the relative field.

To make money with Just Answer you will have two have a certain amount of knowledge in a specialist field. Desired professions include doctors, vets, mechanics and lawyers. While this may sound that you need a degree and be very qualified to make money with Just Answer, this is not actually the case. Perhaps you have a lot of experience with homeschooling, or advising people about relationships, simply because you have a lot of experience in these areas.

When you join Just Answer you will be paid 25% of the amount paid by the problem solution seeker. Once you are an established expert you will earn 50%. Asking a question costs anywhere between 10 and $50, but if you are an expert in your field, answering will not take you longer than a ten minutes in most cases – and therefore earnings can add up to be quite significant.

Live Person

Liveperson.com works along the same lines as JustAnswer.com, as users will pay an expert for a solution to their problem.

However the method of answering questions is a little different, as users will connect with the experts via a chat feature, and the customer will be charged per minute. Because of this, it is important that you are able to type fast – needless to say the client does not want to pay for your time if you are a two fingered typist!

Registering as an expert at Live Person is somewhat easier than at justanswer.com because there are many categories that expertise cannot be proven such as tarot card reading and mediumship.

Live Person also has categories for more conventional experts – health-related experts will always find a lot of work on this site, as will those who are skilled in computer programming or developing.

Regardless of your skills, you should be able to find a category on live person that suits you. The site takes less of a cut than just answer.com; psychics earn around 55% of the total fee, and an expert in other categories will receive up to 70%.
