Do you like to talk and/or text?
Then “chatting” may be the job for you.
Perhaps you already participate in chat rooms and forums online. How about being paid for it?
Before you wonder why anyone should want to pay you for talking, you have to think about how the companies involved make their money.
If you like getting paid for surveys, and are going to join only one site, I would recommend you choose Ipsos-iSay. Ipsos is the most fun and well-paying panel. Give it a try to see how you like it. It is free anyway!
If it’s a social networking site, they might need a hand in getting the community active so they get people visiting – they probably make money by putting ads on the site, and the advertisers want to see that many people visit and see their ads.
Other companies can make money directly from the consumers, for instance, adult chat rooms will probably have paying clientele looking for some friendly words from a sympathetic ear.
If you’re interested in either of these pursuits or in variations of them, then these are some sites that do offer legitimate chat jobs.
1. Flirt Bucks
As the name suggests, Flirt Bucks is mainly looking for women who must be 18 years old, and who are willing to flirt and chat with men on social media.
There are currently vacancies in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
2. Lip Service
This is a similar service, although they do not expressly say they are looking for women only. They are also interested in non-English speakers.
As an idea of what you can earn, you may be paid $0.06 per message.
These messages are not essays, in fact, you should expect to be able to do thousands in a month, so the rate of pay is not bad.
There are three different types of job available at Text121Chat.
- You can apply to become an operator,
- or with suitable skills you can be a bilingual operator,
- or you can work on adult phone services.
The jobs are exactly what you would expect, so you shouldn’t apply if you are going to be offended by the work.
Try Swagbucks, the famous rewards program that pays you for watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and more.
This site has been all over the news lately, getting good (and bad) press.
This is a site where guys too busy for real relationship go on to just talk with a girl. There is no physical connection here, it’s all just to fill that emotional void.
And these guys actually pay good money for the service as well. Some of the girls who work through this site are making over $40,000 a year chatting with guys.
Is It for You?
Only you know if you are easily offended, and therefore should stay away from adult chat services.
The market for these is huge, but there are other genuine chat jobs which will pay you for more general conversation and information.
It is important to note that this is a real work at home job, and the companies depend on workers being available when they say they will be.
There has been some bad press about companies not paying up, and most of it can be traced to people not doing their jobs and fulfilling quotas, in other words letting down the companies.
There are also many stories of people who have been happily working for years in chat positions, so as long as you pay attention to the job requirements these are real opportunities to make money in an interesting way.
