What is Upwork?

Upwork is a global freelancing company formely knows as Elance-Odesk, based out of San Francisco California. Upwork is platform that allows clients to hire and work with freelancers remotely through the platform. With Upwork you can either hire a freelancer or look for online job opportunities as a freelancer.

 

While doing some research online I ran into Upwork which I have never heard of before at the time, it seemed like a very interesting platform so I signed up as a freelancer. I figured it could be a good way to earn some extra money online. It’s pretty easy to set up an account they ask for basic information and you choose what kind of work you would like to do they have a wide range of different job categories to choose from like blog writing,database administration, web content and a lot more.

 

Easy to Navigate Platform

I really like the concept of Upwork it is a good platform where you can find some talented indivduals with that said you can also run into some not so talented individuals as well. If you are looking to hire a freelancer it can be tricky because you do not know if you’re going to get what you are looking for. You can hire a freelancer that is charging 50 dollars and get a better result from the freelancer that is charging 25 dollars. You can kind of look at their track record but that is all you have to go by.

Overview

Upwork is a good opportunity to earn some extra money as a freelancer, although Upwork charges 20 percent fee of the jobs for the first $500 you make, the amount drop down to 10 percent then 5 percent once you have reached a certain amount of earnings.

Final Verdict

I would recommend Upwork as a freelancer, you can definitely make some extra money on your spare time. You do pay Upwork a fee on each job you do but you sign up for free and some of the jobs you get to make a proposal on how much you want charge.

What is Atrybox

Is Atrybox a legit way to make money online? Review from a User. See if it is worth your time. Here is my personal opinion.

Name: Atrybox

Website: Atrybox.com

Cost: Free

Score: 65 out of 100

What is Atrybox?

Atrybox is a fairly new User Testing website that pays you for participating in testing new products and sharing your opinion. Atrybox allows users across the United States to test products through phone calls, personal meetings and online testing.

 

Atrybox test invites

Atrybox is a company based out of New York, as of now Atrybox is only available for testers across the United States. It’s a very quick and easy process to sign up, they ask you for your basic personal information and kind of offer you to select different job and industry that is applicable to your job experience. They select you an send an invitation to test product based on what you select. Certain companies looks for specific people with specific experience.

Atrybox seems like a very good way to earn some extra money.

While it’s a fairly new company, from my personal opinion it seems like there are very limited jobs to participate in. I’ve signed up with Atrybox for a few months now and I have only received 1 invitation, which I have missed the opportunity because I did not respond to the invite fast enough just my luck right? You get an alert through your email when you have received an invitation, you really have to act fast when you get an invitation.

I have sent an email to them asking why it seems like there is limited opportunities they were pretty good about responding and said that they are a new company they select people based on different filters, right now they have several companies that use their platform and working on getting more.

 

Overview

Atrybox seems like a really good way to earn some extra money online. Since it is a new company you are not going to be getting a lot of opportunites. I think there is definitely some earning potential with Atrybox, especially once they mature and become more popular.

 

Final Verdict

Since this is a very young company and I have not really had a lot of opportunities to test products. I am giving it a 65 out 100. I will have to keep an eye on this one to see what happens in the meantime, I would recommend signing up with Atrybox it is free to sign up you might have better luck getting more invitations than I did. Goodluck!

To start, like most online businesses you are going to need a website. It is not very complicated to build a website these days you can build a website here in a just few minute for free hosted by Wealthy Affiliate, I really recommend using Wealthy Affiliate If you are new to online marketing and you are not sure how to use Keywords and SEO you can learn step by step on how it all works with the courses they offer, you will learn  how to generate good traffic to your website and with great traffic means more revenue.

What is your favorite passion or hobby?

The next thing you should do is to think of something you are really interested in or passionate about, it could be anything like any product, sports, hobby etc… Got it? (Ideally you want to name your website something kind of related to your interest). Okay after you build your website you are going to need some content. Can you write a little bit about that thing that you enjoy? If you enjoy something it should not be too hard to write or talk about right? Now  we need some content, write naturally about that thing you like.

So let’s say for example you love fishing and it’s your favorite hobby, you would want to write about some the best/newest fishing equipment out there or just write some tips or reviews on the equipment you personally use. You can build a lot of content from this, you can write reviews on what you think is great to use when you go fishing or things you don’t recommend at all. You should make a list of your top items you use when you go fishing like fishing poles, hooks, gear you use and make a list of some fishing equipment you don’t recommend. (This can apply to almost anything I am just using fishing as an example.)

 

Now write about some of your fishing experiences. Once you finish writing about them. it’s time to get to how exactly you are going to make some money online. No, you will not be selling anything directly to anyone. You are simply going to lend a hand on helping your consumer make a purchase online and earn some money while you are doing it.

Now the next thing you are going to do is sign up with the Amazon Associate program. (Check out how the Amazon affiliate program works)

(Example of the product link)

Since we are focusing on fishing equipment, go to Amazon.com and look up some equipment. Pick out the best fishing equipment in your opinion and write a review on these item, remember you are going to create reviews on fishing products that’s how you are going to earn money so make sure your review are easy to read and professional.

 

 

As an Amazon Associate  you can link to any product on Amazon and the products are linked to your unique affiliate ID. When you post your review of the product on your site, let’s say someone is doing a research on fishing equipment before they buy and they run into your review and click on you product link, banner or product image that’s linked to your affiliate ID when they click the link it’s going to bring them to that specific product to Amazon.com if they purchase the item you get a commission and if they purchase any other item while they are on Amazon.com you get a commission as well. The sales can really add up.

 

success depends on you

 

Once you have your site up it’s not very hard to maintain. You can really earn some extra money while you sleep. You website is up 24 hours a day so the potential of making a good income is there. Creativity with your content and reviews are important.

 

I hope this article can help you get started in earning some income online. If you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment.
