4 places where you can earn from your photos.

Earning by selling your photos, old or new cannot be very rewarding but some extra dollars in your wallet can’t harm you-right?

Here are 4 places that I know of where one can sell photos. Each web site offers different pay terms.

This is actually free image hosting service and each image of yours, if viewed 1000 times, you are paid 22 cents.

The price per image varies depending on the size of your photo and the quality set by Dreams Time.

Each time, your image gets downloaded, you are paid 25 cents. Refer friends and earn 0.03 per each of their image downloads.

One of the big players in this industry where one can choose to sell photos as royalty-free or with an exclusive buyout license.

Freelance marketplace and outsourcing hub.

I stumbled onto Lime Exchange that seems to be a big online marketplace for freelancers. Freelancers who can do a bit of web designing are more in demand than freelance writers and programmers.

There are projects in internet marketing, data entry and home typing but these are always on limited budget and they get grabbed asap.

Lime Exchange works on bidding type and providers of services have to bid on projects that suit their skill.

I noticed a couple of translation projects too. Most of the providers are from India and hence I expect a stiff competition and that means very low pay rate.

Lime Exchange sports pleasing colors and good layout but I felt the site loads a lot slowly..

Lime Exchange has the potential to become a huge outsourcing hub.

3 legitimate get paid to survey companies.

Ever since I became an Internet entrepreneur in 1998, I have known about hundreds of "get paid to survey" companies.

What is "get paid to survey"?
In a nutshell, you are paid to answer some simple questions asked by online marketing companies representing consumer products manufacturers or service providers.

The questions asked are always simple and mostly it will take you up to 20 minutes maximum to complete a survey. The pay rate per survey varies from $1 to $25.
This is the easiest online income opportunity.

The qualification to participate varies according to the product or service for which the survey is conducted. Mostly people in the age group of 20 to 40 are given this opportunity.

Out of so many survey companies, I have short listed the 3 best companies here.
1. Pinecone Research
2. Greenfield
3. Zoom Panel

There are more companies out there that sometimes give you products that are about to be launched in the market and ask you to test the product and to give your feedback.

Warning: Never pay for participating in survey companies but you can always pay to get a list of "get paid to survey" companies. I know of a company in Madras, that sells a big list of paying survey companies.

Earning online is not very difficult-eh?

How Twitter can help you find jobs?

I read an article in on how Twitter can help job seekers find jobs because employers are also using Twitter to post job announcements. And we thought Twitter is just fun with out any constructive purpose?

How employers use Twitter?
* Invariably, they have a Twitter on their website's home page requesting visitors to follow them on Twitter.
* Some companies post their openings on Twitter.
* Twitter job search engines like Job shout automatically send Tweets of job postings in their search engine portal for employers and job seekers.
* Job seekers use which is a job search engine that searches Twitter for jobs that match the keywords that you enter.
* has a Twitter profile where they have written that it is their philosophy to help one find a job.
*And you know Twellow already, a very popular Twitter search engine and a big one.

From the the ways Twitter is being used, I wonder "What is next?"

Moms earn handsome money as translators.

The choice for work at home moms as a freelance translator just got increased due to a spurt in demand and a decrease in supply.

Some of the tasks required for a translator include rewriting web pages from one language to another. This is mostly done from English to German and Japanese.

I came across quite a few English to Spanish translation jobs too but I failed to note down to be of service to you.

Translators do a better job when they speak both the languages fluently. Others, who can’t speak either one of the languages don’t do a great job; they tend to translate very literally. Word for word translation is not the correct way doing translation.

If the translator happens to know the culture of the people who speak the languages that are in question, it will be an added advantage.

The income opportunities for work at home moms as a freelance translator are abundant especially if they happen to reside in Mumbai.

I give below a few places to seek and announce your translation skills:

Post your profile:

Assamese Translators wanted:

Translator Agencies in India:

Classifieds for Translator jobs:

To summarize, translation jobs are ideal for work at home moms and yes, for work at home dads too.
