    Default Work from home

    Does anyone know a real reliable company who pays for online surveys or similar work from home? I'm recently retired only want some extra cash few hours a week. Any ideas, Cheers.

    Spark was looking for "chat" staff part time.
    Have a look at the careers section of their site, they advertise every now and then.

    Well I got a payment from Google Adsense two weeks ago - as passive income. About every 3 months for over 6 years. Did nothing much to earn that recently. But did ton's before, as self taught content writer/SEO / and affiliate marketing. Basically as a niche affiliate marketer running (or trying to) 18 blogs and sites. Maybe try it - but need (or research) a topic or some hobby that you are keen on and try monetize it. View Adsense here. "Passion for profit"as Google says - it works - but may take several months to realise a steady income. Some including this ex builder kiwi guy make 1000's a month.

    I make OK money with NZ Valued Opinions. Get about 5 daily surveys averaging 3 dollars each. Sometimes 6-10 surveys. Some every few months for 150 dollars - but requires attendance to sample pending NZ foods and beverages. You need stick with them to be elevated to that status. I turn down heaps of surveys. Now in my 10th year I think. Made $100's of in-store credit with them - now includes JB Hi Fi. Got me a TV, mobiles, numerous USB/SD memory, DVD's etc.

    Fishpond - as an affiliate made good money also but again requires tons of content writing...

    Thanks. Yep. Trick is to stick to a goal - took 18 months - then dollars flowed in - mainly through CPC ads (adsense) and direct affiliate sales. But Google took notice me earning consistently > 300 month. They were gong to nuke my niche sites unless if i delinked them - as considered a blog/web content farm. So I scaled back, focusing on certain niche sites.

    But really I followed some of the best authoritative online marketers's/SEO's (e.g. this one,, theory, and many top SEO sites) and read/study daily, content tips - evolving SEO, digital marketing, - Google algo, etc.
