Earning a second income easily from home.  Reply with quote  

I believe everyone needs a second income. There are several ways to earn some extra income. If you follow Dave Ramsey he always mentions delivering pizza’s as a classic example. Some people might want to walk dogs, detail cars, or start a small part time business pressure washing driveways. All of these are great examples and have the potential to make good money.

I've chosen to use CashCrate as a way to earn my second income from home. This really fits well with my work schedule.

What is CashCrate?

CashCrate is a survey hosting site that hosts surveys for a variety of marketing companies. Members may select surveys to participate in and receive compensation for their time. CashCrate takes a percentage of the earnings for running their business, but passes the remainder of earnings (up to 75%) on to members.

How Much Money Can You Make?

The amount you may earn is really a function of how much work you put in at CashCrate. Some members barely earn the minimum payout of $20.00 each month, while others earn over $1,000 (including earnings from referals). Speaking of referrals, CashCrate has one of the better referral systems out there. In the interest of full disclosure, the majority of my earnings come from refererrals, but it is possible to earn a decent amount of money each month just by completing surveys. If you have a blog of your own, adding a CashCrate referral banner or link is a great way to diversify your income. Here's a look at my earnings from the last five months:
January 2011: $19.22
February 2011: $21.10
March 2011: $75.91
April 2011: $168.05
May 2011: $207.38



How Do We Use the Earnings?

For the most part we use the earnings check from CashCrate each month to supplement our grocery budget. I like to cash the check and put it in a "stockpile" envelope. If our grocery store is having a particularly good sale on meats I'll stock up using the CashCrate earnings and throw a few bags of frozen chicken breasts in the freezer. This last month was our highest earnings to date, and this time we'll take half of the earnings to make an extra payment on the debt snowball. Don't forget to account for taxes by holding a little back in savings to pay taxes at the end of the year (we save about 25% of our extra earnings for taxes, but this amount could vary based on your tax bracket, deductions, etc.).

Will My Email Inbox Be Flooded With Spam?

Most offers do require a valid email address, so it is a good idea to create a separate email account to dedicate to CashCrate. Otherwise, you will receive email from various advertisers at your primary email account. Remember though, this is not technically spam as you have agreed to receive offers by participating in the survey. Of course, this has little effect on me because I only check my dedicated CashCrate email account once a month or so.

What's the Fastest Way to Make Money at CashCrate?

The fastest way to earn a $20.00 payout (which can easily be done your first day as a member), is to complete the 100% free offers. From the "Complete Offers" menu select "100% Free" from the "Show:" drop down filter. These surveys don't pay as much, but they are typically shorter and do not require a credit card or trial-offer agreement to participate. When I work surveys these are the only ones I complete because I don't like the idea of signing up for things just to earn money. I'm too forgetful and am likely to forget to cancel the trial offer in the required time. Stick to 100% free offers and the daily surveys, unless you are feeling adventurous.

If you are interested in signing up for free simply follow one of my referral links sprinkled throughout this post, or click the banner in the center.

Recommended Programs to boost your Profits

To boost the profit capabilities of CashCrate make sure you look into RoboForm. This program adds a toolbar to your browser and allows you to automatically fill the survey information!

The last program I recommend is CCleaner. This program clears your cookies, history, etc.. and also correct registry errors not only making your computer faster, but this allows more offers to process quicker. Some of the offers are hosted by the same companies and using CCleaner to clear your cookies makes them process smoother.

That's why I love CashCrate so much. You can spend a few minutes a day and earn a lot more then $10 a month. My job is very demanding so I don't get a lot of time to actually put in on the offers, but my girlfriends brother puts in around $10-15 a day on CashCrate.

He's still in highschool though and has a part time job. His checks are around $300 a month from the program just from him doing surveys. If you do surveys and then refer other people your profits can get really crazy for doing something like this on your spare time.

Don't forget you also earn money from your referrals referrals also. Just sign up with my signature and follow my first post by getting the recommended programs. While your doing offers learn how to get referrals etc... quickest methods are people you know like siblings, friends, etc.. then find others online.

I wish you the best of luck!

Making money with a website not only requires very little initial investment, but depending on what you want to focus on, it can be an extremely profitable venture as well. From affiliate marketing to blogging to actually selling your own products or even just running advertising on your site, even beginners with little to no experience can make money with a website if they just follow a few simple guidelines.

I've never earned much with Cash Crate and personally feel that its a waste of time for me. I notice a few blogs where some people earned hundreds on Cash Crate but mainly from referrals. I thinks the earning potential is great for referring others but not so much for surveys.

Surveys are good if you are living in the US. But if you are living like in Asian countries, you'll definitely receive a lot less survey offers. Most companies are located in the US so they would want to get opinion coming from people who live there.

I have heard a lot about this company. I might check it out. Do they pay PalPal or send money to international banks?

Sorry if I missed the info

Thanks
