Wouldn't you love to just be able to talk to people about stuff you know and get paid to do it? Here's some websites I've found. Some weren't a great fit for me, and a few I've actually tried. Heres what Ive researched and got for ya:
Clarity is a website for BUSINESS PROFESSIONALS. If you know how to launch a business/brand/company and know something in any of the following fields then jump over to this website and get paid (per minute) to talk to people on the phone who need you! You set your prices! Good luck! Im not experienced in this field, so if you have any more info about this site please let me know in the comments!
http://www.aceyourcollegeclasses.com/ Ok honestly, I can't figure this one out. Its not very well laid out but SOME people have figured it out and they are making money with it! Heres what it says about making money with them in their FAQ:
"Here is an example, let’s say you’re a math whiz, log in to your AYCC account and browse for questions that involve math. Create a tutorial that will guide the student and post it. We will show a preview of your tutorial to the student, if they like the preview, they purchase it. From there you earn the price of the tutorial minus our 25% fee.
AYCC recommends that you do not post short answers. Post tutorials that are good and has a great deal of information. Students will like that and this in return will make them come back to you for more help! More help means more money for you! Get paid within 24 hours after your withdrawal!
When you sell a tutorial you will earn 75% and AYCC will take the other 25%. All tutorials will remain on the site and can be sold over and over again. This means you make more money! There are no fees to withdraw your money earned and for adding funds."
Like I said, its not the most straight forward system, but if you are the person that loves to write essays and just dont have any good reason to keep em around, SELL 'EM and someone else can graduate college! You also set your own prices in this one, although its a bit more labor intensive.
To join this site you have to actually have credentials to back yourself up. Any profession you have a degree in and have worked at for 2 or more years gets you access to making money with this site. We are talking Doctors, Lawyers, etc.
To join the community of professionals, you will need to:
Ok, so this one I actually worked for a while back and just applied to work for again. You can actually make money doing this and its for real! You wont make enough to change your life but you could make anywhere from $30-$100 bucks a month of extra cash by just Googling things for people. Again, you wont be rich but its pretty much my dream job, haha. KGB is a text answering service. People text their question to them and then an agent responds to it, kind of like ask.com or the thousands of other things you see around the internet but never knew you could be a part of. You get .10-.15 cents per text. They charge .99 per text.. but thats besides the point. =)
You have to work a minimum of hours per week. I cant remember what it is right now but its something like 10. If you go under the threshold you will be fired. Its an actual job, and you set your own schedule and work as hard as you'd like.
If you want to work for them you first have to pass an assessment test found here: http://beginkgb.com/challenge/
You can take it as many times as you'd like, but you have to pass all 7 sections in order to be considered at all. Once you pass you send your info in and basically fill out an app. within 5 business days you should get an email letting you know if you've been accepted!
Basically the same thing as KGB only the payment is different and they arent hiring as often.
Heres their description about the jobs they offer: http://becomeaguide.chacha.com/why-become-a-guide/
They hire at this link so check it out and see if there are any positions available: http://becomeaguide.chacha.com/
If you want to make money with Webanswers be ready to be in for the long haul with little payout. I like it because its just something to do and I feel like Im getting SOMETHING out of it.. but that something is minuscule.
"How do I get paid for answering questions?
WebAnswers.com uses Google's AdSense contextual advertising program to generate revenue for the the users that have been "awarded answers" by the people asking the questions. Once an answer you have posted is selected as the best answer for the question, you will earn a percentage of the revenue generated by that question from Google AdSense."
Basically in lamens terms what that means is that the website is laid out like a forum. People ask questions and others answer extremely similarly yahoo answers. The person asking the question gets to pick the best answer. The person awarded as giving the best answer gets the page - meaning they can gain revenue based on the number of hits the URL of that question gets... meaning as little as .00001 cent per 1000 views. Its all based around Google adsense.
Its fun to do but don't expect for it to be a "job." If you already use Google in this way with your own website like I do then there's no reason why not if you just like answering questions cause it just gets added to your paycheck from Google (Google doesnt pay you until you've made $1000 worth of income by the way, so just using webanswers can take like 100 years to show results. =)
This one is probably of most interest to my friends and schoolmates. Ive signed up for it, but not all of the way because I dont know how ready I am! This one is the most different of all of the sites I've listed. THis one actually caters to Life Coaches, Psychics, Astrologers, and the like or similar. You get set up with a phone number, tell your price per minute, then get listed on the website as a person that clients may call for advice in your area of expertise. Then they pay you!

This one sounds a lot like Keen! This website will provide you with a unique contact number which your clients can use to call you and take advice from you. You can set any price for you call per minute and get paid to answer questions. For some reason this one makes me feel more confident then Keen, and since Im a Hypnotherapist and Life coach this one feels more professional (instead of being centric around psychics and readers.)
