UserTesting is a website that pays people to test websites and verbally record their impressions. Why? Because once a website is designed, the owner/webmaster needs to know that it provides a good visitor experience. UserTesting workers are paid $10 per test, and each test takes about 20 minutes. You will do a pre-test and fill out some demograhic information when you apply. A PC or Mac and/or an iPhone, iPad or Android phone or tablet and a microphone are required. The better you are at relaying your impressions of websites (this company likes testers to give a lot of feedback), the more websites you will be asked to review. You will not get rich but can make some extra spending money.

Mechanical Turk is an Amazon-owned website where companies that need tasks done find people to do them. These tasks are called HITs (human intelligence tasks) and can be anything from labeling photos to participating in a forum. Most HITs pay anywhere from $.01 to $2.00 but are fairly easy to perform (some, though, are not worth doing). Hundreds of thousands of HITs are available at any one time (the best paying ones are usually posted between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm), and the more you do, the more of them become available to you. These HITs will not make you rich, but many people who stick to higher paying ones make $7 to $15 per hour working in their pajamas.
