Being self-employed (not entirely by choice), I’m dabbling in things on the side to bring in some extra income.
I’ve been buying and selling on ebay, trying my hand at internet marketing, and doing surveys (yes, the online kind where you get paid). I’ve made a couple of hundred dollars now (over several months) and some Amazon gift cards (always useful).
So far, the best place I’ve found to do surveys is SurveySavvy. They pay for many different types of surveys, and some of the surveys can lead to a “focus group” that has it’s own payments (like the Amazon gift cards I’ve been getting).
So, if you want to do surveys, head on over to SurveySavvy and sign up. You complete a couple of “profile surveys”, and then you get the paid survey links in your email. :)
