Online advertising has skyrocketed over the past few years. In 2014, companies spent close to $50 billion advertising online. That figure is expected to increase substantially in 2015. What does this mean for you? A lot more money could be going into your bank account this year. That’s IF you take advantage of this secret system in online jobs.
Not everyone who wants to work at home is looking for long-term career options. Sometimes you just want something that is relatively easy where you can make some extra cash fast. If that describes you, these 5 online jobs may be just the thing.
The online application process for these jobs—or perhaps “gigs” is the better word since they are all for independent contractors—is pretty simple and straightforward with very little required of candidates. Some of these opportunities—like the microjobs—you could very well apply and start the same day. And these jobs require very little commitment and can typically be done on your on schedule.
A word of caution: Remember that where very little is required, very little is offered. These jobs don’t pay much, and they are not going to provide a reference for your resume. It may take working at several different of these online jobs to pull in the income you want. And as always, know the signs of a work-at-home scam as you sort through the opportunities.

1. Social Media Manager
Starting Pay: $15-$40/hour
Managing a company’s social media accounts can be a fun way to make money with an online job on a flexible schedule. It’s also a cool way to connect with businesses you love.
A social media manager serves as the voice and face of a business on a number of engagement platforms. You’ll promote deals and content and interact with followers.
You could post your resume on random job boards, but it’s better to contact local companies directly. Better yet, connect with a business you already patronize.
Focus on social platforms you love and know inside out to boost your pay. If you’re a Twitter fiend, talk up your experience. If you spend all your free time on Pinterest, put your pinning skills to use.
Then, get creative: Outline a plan to connect with customers via Snapchat or Instagram. Smaller companies might not have thought about exploring these platforms, making you an integral part of the team.
You can be paid weekly in all kinds of ways including check by mail, direct deposit, wire transfer and even directly to your Paypal account. These companies are reliable. You get paid on time, every single time. No worries about late paychecks. You can also login at any time during the day or night to check your stats and keep track of how much you have made in real-time.
