Legitimate Ways For Stay At Home Parents To Earn Money Online

After my first child was born a few years ago, I found myself in the position of being a stay at home parent. Without the second income coming in our household money was tight and I scoured the internet for ways that I could make money online and still be at home with the kids. Since I know how difficult it is trying to weed out the legitimate opportunities from the scams  I wanted to compile a list of the ways that I’ve earned money online over the years.

Surveys, Get Paid to Surf, Read Emails

There are legitimate companies that will pay you to do various tasks online such as complete surveys, read email, complete multiple offers or even listen to music online. These programs are free to join.

Usability Testing

What is Usability Testing?

Website or App Owners will pay to monitor a genuine user use their website or app so they can find out exactly where their website or app may be confusing to the user.

Usability testing companies  have a panel of testers to do this. When you become a tester for one of these companies, when one of their clients request your demographic profile, you will have an opportunity to earn money by using their website or app and answering some questions about your experience.

When you do a usability test for a site  you will usually use a screen recorder  provided by the company that you signed up with to record a video of what’s happening on your screen

Depending on the company, you can expect to make $10 -$20 per test.

Here are a few sites that you can sign up as a Usability Tester:
