The following is a list of websites that will pay you to answer questions or give some type of advice.
Just a disclaimer before I begin. I’ve researched all of the following companies and their job leads to make sure they are not scams. I’ve even provided links for you to apply! However, I cannot guarantee that you will be hired. I can’t guarantee that you’ll love your job if you are hired. What I can guarantee is that the following links are NOT scams. They are real jobs that pay an hourly rate for honest work in the customer service industry. If any of the following links are scams or require you to pay at any point outside of standard operating equipment (i.e. computer, pens, internet access, desk), please notify me and I will remove it immediately.
