Have you ever gone on a long internet binge, researching and surfing mindless things, and thought to yourself: I wish I could make some money surfing the internet and sharing the (sometimes useless) information I had just acquired? Well, now you can!
Actually, you could have since 2006, but that's beside the point. ChaCha is a great place to earn some extra cash online! For those of you who have been living under a rock in the 2000s, ChaCha is an answering service (both online and via SMS) that gives people free answers to questions they have.
So, basically you answer questions for people for cash! Don't worry the questions that are asked are usually extremely simple, stupid or just a look up question (ex. movie theaters in Detroit, MI). ChaCha will pay you $0.02 a question. There is another option they have, which is to work in points mode. For every question you answer, you will receive 2 points. The more points you have the more entries you get into a large pot of cash that is predetermined.
Enough of this—let's get down to it!
Step 1 Sign Up
Go to ChaCha's Become a Guide section and sign up.
Step 2 Watch the Videos
You will have to review a series of videos that teach you how the ChaCha system works.
Step 3 Take the Test
In order to be accepted, you need to pass their test. Make sure you pass! You only have one shot at taking the test. If you fail, then you have to forget about making cash with ChaCha.
Step 4 Wait
After all that, now you just have to wait for your acceptance email.
Step 5 Start ChaCha-ing
To get paid, you can chose the pay me monthly option, which will direct deposit your earnings into your bank account on the 14th of every month. The next option is Pay Me Now., for which you have to set up a bank account with First Internet Bank of Indiana and wait for your debit card and pin in order to transfer funds immediately to your account.
ChaCha is not a get rich quick job, but you can definitely make some coin on it. Change adds up! Enjoy ChaCha-ing!
