Hi, I am Pritam Nagrale. I have been successfully making money online since 2004. I have tried almost all the make money ideas and work from home jobs exist on internet. I know what works and what does not! What I write on my blog is my practical experience. You can find all the legit information on MoneyConnexion that will help you to make money on the side.


  1. I think you have to be honest in descripting a job because if it is not work like that then your blog was not going to be good,like what you had mentioned about captcha work that 2dollar per hour but when i tried theres i only done half dollar a day

  2. Mturk from Amazon is not accepting people from worldwide … they don’t even tell why they won’t accept you and they are targeting most the american contiment users so for me they are an USELESS platform & I’m from Europe !!!

  3. Guys i would recommend Microworkers it is best crowdsourcing platform i have ever used in between i had used MTurk, Crowdflower, Shorttask, rapidworkers and i had been using this platforms nearly 5 years compared to all this crowdsourcing websites i would suggest microworkers i had good payout compare to others and in details
    1. Mturk it pay you less in cents and the task for non USA region is less
    2. Crowdflower it pays less to and the accuracy is 90% above and sometimes it is tough to do kind of jobs for few cents
    3. Shorttask….very less task and 0 task appears more often
    3. Rapidworkers well only sign in jobs available mostly

    Overall it is my experience in working on this websites….its my opinion

  4. Working in third work countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, and South Asia not problem, but no PayPal payment allowed. What’s alternative methods of receiving payment?

  5. Great article! Never had much luck with microjobs. Anyone serious about making money should definitely check out Affilorama. It teaches you how to make serious money online with affiliate marketing. I quit my job and now I make ALOT more money all online 🙂

    Heres a really good review of affilorama:

    Keep up the great content! 🙂

    • i took some jobs in microworks, it takes much time, but pays very little, as per their say you can’t earn much. mostly waste of time. i just earned 2.13$ spending almost more than a week. most of the jobs are not taking more than 30 minutes, just for 0.05 cents to 0.08 cents but difficult to understand. you cannot earn much. some times pages are not available.

  6. don’t go for shorttask and rapid workers b/z in shorttask you will always find 0 tasks to complete and in rapidworker most of the sign up task is scam and filled with viruses

  7. Hello,

  9. This is a very good platfor for one to be at peace ,in a convenient environment. a chance to be your own boss

  10. I’ve been using Crowdtap since last year when I needed a fast way of making a few bucks in order to buy presents for my kids for Christmas and birthdays since they are within 2 weeks of each other. Crowdtap does pay. It is very easy to earn there. The only downside is that they only pay $5 in Amazon gift cards for every 1,000 points that you earn. Sometimes there aren’t enough things to do in order to earn that much. But, I’ve made about $45-50 off of them so far since November of last year. I’ve recently started to work with mturk. They are a pretty good company to work for. At first I wasn’t sure if it was legit or not until my $20 I earned landed into my Amazon Gift Card balance last night. That only motivated me to work on there more. You can’t get a payment until you’ve been there for at least 10 days. You can only accept 100 HITs per day. You do have 3 options when requesting your payment from them. You can choose to get a gift card, send it to your amazon payments and pay your amazon bill with it, or you can withdraw it from your amazon payments. I was forced to choose the gift card option unfortunately as I couldn’t set up the Amazon Payments. I do plan to get that fixed soon. Now, with clickworker, I tried it. I didn’t earn anything and don’t really get many options. But, I’m going to try it again. I’m also going to try all of the above listed sites and I’ll be glad to share my opinion with you. I hope this helped.

  11. Hi my parents are really struggling hard for my study they want me to become a engineering and someone plz provide me wsy to earn online
