thoughts about making money

So teh boy is all the more ambitious about making money for school. The problem is that he's afraid to take another job on because he's afraid it will conflict with his current job and school starting next month. He wants to try to find ways of making money online. I told him about swag bucks and he had heard about adding subtitles to movies and I sent him some information on that and about writing articles for clicks.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks

Does he do web design at all?

And that stuff sounds like a great idea. How do I do it?! I need to find a way to make some money after I transfer.

If he's a good writer, he can check out Yahoo! Contributor Network, Textbroker.com, FullofKnowledge.com neither site pays big bucks, but it adds up. For textbroker, he will submit a writing sample and then it will be evaluated...from there, he can receive assignments and possibly be placed on a team.

He can also check out guru.com and see if there is need for his skill set.

If he doesn't mind filling out pointless surveys for crap he never buys, he can pick up $2.00-3.00 filling out surveys online. There are a lot of survey sites out there, but if he can score an invite to Pinecone, they're one of the better ones.

So much online stuff pays pennies, so it may not be worth his time unless he can luck into something that really pays.

He may be able to score an on-campus job; they tend to pay OK and are generally flexible around his class schedule.

workplacelikehome.com is a really good forum about online jobs

Can he donate plasma? That's a decent way to make some honest cash.
