There are many ways to make money online. I have discussed a fair amount of them on the blog. However, it is also important to know that there are ways you can use to make quick money without any effort really.
Today you will learn how you can start making money watching videos online. Yes, all you have to do is play a video and earn you some quick cash.
This is a tried and true method for earning money online. However, you won’t become the next Jeff Bezos this way.
I am a big fan of blogging as a side hustle or even as an online business career. Still, watching videos online can be another way for you to earn more income on the side.
I have made a video showing the websites that allow you to watch videos for money. You can watch it below.

These are the 6 Best Websites to Make Money Watching Videos
Perk.com is one way to make money watching videos. You can use their Perk TV app both on your phone and/or on your laptop and click on videos. There is no limit to how many videos per day you can watch, but it is important to disallow any adblocker you might have. Some also report being able to use more than one device at a time to maximize their earnings. However, this is a slightly risky move as the terms of service do not clarify how many devices you are allowed to use.
Even more interesting, Perk is not just for using watching videos. They have a list of apps that allow you to make money answering pop quizzes for example.
Perk works in a system that gives you points for each completed task. You then have the right to exchange these points for rewards. You can get Gift Cards (Amazon, Wallmart, Target) or you can exchange it for Paypal Cash.

You-Cubez is another way to make money watching videos online. You can get paid by clicking ads on videos (or on the website), and you can also get paid for simply watching the video.
However, the pay rate is not that high. The upside is that you can refer others to join the website and earn 10% for each new active user.
This website has been around since 2008. While the Cube system may be a little bit confusing for a beginner, you can always check the help forum for more information.
Once you have the minimum requirement, you can withdraw your earnings via Paypal or AlertPay. It may take a few days, but many reported that they receive all the money they earned.
3. Fusion Cash
Fusion Cash is an awesome way to make money online completing tasks you would usually do on your own for free. That’s why watching videos provided by FusionCash is one of the best ways to get an income online.
The best part is that instead of paying you a few cents for every 10 videos you watch, they pay for each individual video. When you navigate to the “Video” tab on their website, you will see the length of the video and how much they’ll pay to watch it. You can choose from the long list of videos according to your interests.
When you need to withdraw your earnings, it is a simple process. You can choose direct deposits or use Paypal. Either way, FusionCash is a sure way of earning a decent amount of income.
4. Earning Station
You will notice that there is a certain pattern with all the options here. EarningStation is another surveys website that allows you to make money watching TV ads, playing games, and of course, answering surveys.

The best part about using EarningStation as a side-hustle is that they offer more incentive if you use the service daily. They have a system that rewards you for earning at least $.25 per day for 10 days, and they increase the amount of the reward to a maximum of $3.25. This means you will earn extra cash as you complete tasks daily.
You can withdraw your earnings as soon as you make your first $10. If you want your earnings in Paypal, you will need to earn $50.
SB is one of the services that allow you to watch videos online and earn some points along the way. You can convert these points to gift cards or Paypal Cash. Similar to all previous sites, videos are just one of the many (11 best) options to stack up points very fast.
Swagbucks has a limit of points per day that you can earn watching videos, but that’s okay. It still leaves you plenty of time to complete other tasks like surveys and playing games.
This is among the best ways to make money in those dull moments when you have nothing else to do.
Depending on how many points you have accumulated, you can exchange them for gift cards or Paypal Cash if you qualify.
6. User Testing
Forbes has written about UserTesting’s services, and that’s probably the best PR. UserTesting is a site that allows creators (developers, etc.) to test their online products with a live audience. Once you sign up, you will be able to test different things, among them newly launched videos.
Each of these tests is about 20-30 minutes long, and it’s specified for you to complete the task within a time limit. You also already know how much you’d get paid to complete the test and leave your feedback.
Most tasks bring you around $10. Depending on your rating, you will receive about 5 offers, but you won’t qualify for all of them. You should aim for 2 per day, which means around $100/week.
UserTesting pays on a weekly basis so you wouldn’t have to wait long to withdraw your money through PayPal.
Making money watching videos online may not be the ultimate way of earning a side income. However, if you have time to spare, then there is no harm.
