When it comes to side hustling or finding ways to make extra money, I think it is incredibly important to set goals.
I started This Online World to see if I could make money by blogging while helping other people, and along the way I have realized that setting tangible benchmarks and goals is ultimately what keeps you moving in the right direction.
It doesn’t matter if a goal is small or grand in scope: setting your sights on a target and making gradual improvements to get there is what counts.
Anyway, the other day I browsing Quora and I came across the question: “How can I make at least $1 a day online?”
This particular thread was filled with a plethora of solid answers, and there were even more related thread suggestions with similar questions about how to make various amounts of money in a single day.
So, after doing a lot of reading and thinking back on some of my own money making endeavors, I have decided to write a post that will cover:
How to make $1 a day.
How to make $10 a day.
How to make $50 a day.
How to make $100+ a day.
Let’s get to it!
How to Make $1 a Day
Earning $1 a day might seem like a trivial goal, but it is important to remember that income standards are incredibly different around the world.
According to the United Nations Development Program, nearly half of the world live on less than $2.50 a day, and more than 1.3 billion live in conditions of extreme poverty and on less than $1.25 a day.
So, while figuring out how to make $1 a day might seem trivial to you depending on where you live, an extra dollar a day can make the world of a difference for someone else.
Here are a few ideas on how to make $1 a day.
Amazon MTurk is a platform that allows users to earn money by completing various tasks that companies or individuals are willing to pay for.
Tasks that are posted on MTurk are the kinds of jobs that artificial intelligence and computers cannot automate. This might include tasks like identifying objects in photos, verifying if people work at a certain business, transcribing work, or working on data tasks like de-duplication.
MTurk requires users to complete a few hundred tasks before some higher paying ones become available, and ultimately, working full-time on MTurk is a tough way to make a living.
Some people have micro task sites and make decent money at it, but it certainly takes a lot of time and practice.
However, if you are looking for a way to make $1 a day, starting out with Amazon MTurk is definitely not a bad option.
