Chances are, you’ve already thought of venturing into online selling as a way to make ends meet. But with the market already oversaturated and threats of scams are present left and right, it seems like earning in a time of quarantine is becoming increasingly difficult.

Fortunately, there are other ways to earn from home—and it does not include seeking employment from Facebook troll farms. Currently there are apps that can provide you with an opportunity to earn without leaving your home or averting your eyes from your smartphones. We’ve handpicked some moneymaking platforms so you know where to start.

Here are some apps that help you make money for extra income.

Some Android phones like Xiaomi and Samsung have become notorious for placing ads on a user’s smartphone.

This is where Slidejoy comes in.

Whether you dismiss an ad, want to see more, or get more information, you get paid an amount that accumulates over time. According to Slidejoy CEO Robert Seo, any action gets paid because they want their clients to get better leads.

To start earning, just go to the Play Store and download Slidejoy for free, install it on your phone, and learn to live with ads.

Established in 2010, Userfeel has been in the business of helping website owners develop a crisp, clean, and most importantly, user-friendly platform through customer feedback.

Although most clients are at the mercy of their web developers and user interface/user experience (UI/UX), Userfeel takes it a notch higher by allowing regular people to experience the websites and get feedback from ordinary people who don’t have an experience in said fields.

To become a usability tester, you need laptop or desktop with a working mic because you will be recording your website journey based on predetermined scenarios. While testing the website, you must make a commentary on your experience. This will be used to further improve the platform you’re testing.

Although this is more intensive and it can be difficult for your technologically challenged person, the rewards are sweet. Usually, a test will only last up to 20 minutes. And the pay? You will get ₱500 per test.

However, don’t get your hopes up as they have a strict qualification test and a manual review of all applicants.

If you feel like you can take on Userfeel’s challenge, go to the website now, download the app on your phone or laptop, and ace that qualification test.

If you like taking photos and you have a certain knack for curating your Instagram feed, it’s time to create your Foap account. Just simply create an account, curate your profile, and start participating in missions. When brands like your photo, you will be compensated for it.

Don’t let your photos just fill your smartphone. Make them work for you by making them fill your wallet as well.
