My Review as a Participant

I am writing this review for Prolific Academic because I now have a payment proof to show.
Survey sites offers rewards and cash as well as  Prolific Academic also give you reward for participating on a study. The usual survey sites are sometimes irritating because there are times that you'll be screen-out when you're about to finish the survey. This was based on my experienced when I joined different survey sites like GlobalTestMarket, SurveySavvy, SurveyMonkey and etc. In my country I received few surveys. Sometimes it took 2,3 weeks or even nothing in a month before survey invites appear in my email. It's sad that survey invites are few and the worst thing here is you'd be screened-out. Few Surveys and Screened-out is really irritating. Right? On Prolific Academic, there are no "screened-out" only "timed-out". You'll answer questions with limited time. But don't worry, the questions are simple and easy and Prolific will give you a reasonable time to finish the study. A 1 hour survey took me 15-20 minutes only to finish.

Now, let me discuss my newly discovered website where you'll get rewarded by participating on a study.


What is Prolific Academic? 

Prolific Academic is world's largest crowdsourcing community of people who love science. Their missions are  to empower scientific researchers and  to spread our passion for science.

How do you get paid?

Rewards that I usually get for every studies ranges from  £0.20 to  £3.20. I registered as a participant on June 10,2016 and received my first payout on July 21, 2016 amounting £7.1 just for answering surveys (academic studies). Not bad, right?

Payment threshold is £5.00. and if you want to minimize PayPal fees, then wait until you have accumulated £20. By doing so you will avoid PayPal fees if you're in the UK, but unfortunately you won't avoid them entirely if you're outside the UK.

Paypal is the only payment method available for Prolific Academic now. 
If you don't have paypal account. Signup Now.

How to become eligible for studies?

Studies depends on your Prolific Academic's Prescreening and maybe your location or demography. You will be asked different questions (similar to survey sites which asks you about Technology, Health, Travel, Name, Birth date and etc.). Your answers on Prescreening will be the basis of Prolific Academic to match a study for you. Again, it is based on the answers you had given on your Prescreening. 

I am from the Philippines and ever since I've started joining Prolific Academic on June 10 until today (my 46th day being a participant), I've already answered 10 studies.


The image above shows that I've already earned a total of £8.50 just for participating studies. I already cashed out my first earning before amounting £7.1.

See the image below for payment proof.
I cashed out £7.1 and only received £6.59 because of the Paypal fees.

10 Relaxing Ways to Enjoy your Day Off at Home


Have a relaxing day at home, It's your day off!

Day off is a day when you are not required to work. It's usually two days given by your employer and in some other companies they only give one day. How do you celebrate your day off? Do you go out and watch movie and eat out at lunch with your friends? Do you visit a place such as your friend's house or other places? You can do everything you want during your rest day. You are free from submitting reports, meeting deadlines and quotas, talking to clients or in short you are free from a stressful working.
I have some tips on how to make your day off relaxing and enjoyable at home. These tips are the things I normally do during my day off.
So, tomorrow is your day off? Will you celebrate it outside or at home? If you want to just stay at home then, I would like to remind you that before you go to sleep tonight kindly please "Turn off your alarm" and try the tips below when you wake up tomorrow.

1 Stay in Bed, Don't Get up

Stay in bed for as long as you want - It's your day off, it's time for you to just stay in your bed and don't think on any stressful things from either your work or somebody else. Even if you're awake and don't feel to get up, then don't, it's your day, think of happy and inspiring things while you are lying in your bed.

2 Have a Leisurely Breakfast

Start your day with a relaxing breakfast and coffee - Make your own breakfast. A simple fried egg, bacon, hot dog or sandwich for your breakfast is awesome. Take a coffee while in front of your laptop or tablet / ipad doing anything using them either surf on the web and read articles, news and etc. Play a relaxing music while taking your breakfast .

3 Play Video Games or Play with your pets

Play with your pets - If you have pet dogs, cats, guinea pigs or other pets, play with them. If you don't have pets then play games on your phone, laptop or any gaming consoles you have.

4 Feel Lazy for a moment and Watch Movies

Watch movies from your laptop or DVD or lie in your bed again."Who cares" it's your day off, don't allow anyone to disturb you.You can have a movie marathon all by yourself. Watch while eating popcorn or any snacks you have. Make yourself feel lazy for a moment.

5 Take your time for a bath or shower

Take a bath or shower and never hurry yourself. You are not going for work. Remember that you are staying at home for the whole day. Deep clean your body. If you want, you can sing while taking your bath.


6 Eat Most of Your Favorite Meal at Lunch

It's your life, eat most of your favorite food. Order your food at any restaurants that you can afford. You can order pizza, pasta, burgers and anything you want. Pig out, it's time for you to eat bunch of food you crave on. Call them or order online. Take time eating.

7 Lie Down or Play with your Pets

After lunch you can lie in your bed again or play with your pets. Just relax. Breath in and breath out while enjoying wasting your time doing nothing and thinking some happy things or you might want to spoil yourself eating chocolates or ice cream.

8 Read your favorite novel

Read the novel you've been wanting to read before. Sit in a comfortable sofa and just read. If you don't want reading novels, then, sing dance, or play your guitar. Play a dance song and groove or sing all your favorite songs. These are another great and enjoyable things to do at home.

9 Laugh and Watching Funny Videos

Watch funny clips from YouTube while eating your snacks. There are bunch of funny clips you can watch on. Go on and search for them. Laugh till you drop.

Earn Money Online for First Timer

"Don't Skip Reading, You might missed the most important thing you are Looking"



Hi there pal. Are you aware that you can earn an extra money at the comfort of your home? If your answer is "YES", then, congratulations, just keep going on, but please, try to scroll down and appreciate reading this article. 

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I suggest you to take time reading this article.


Let me start by telling you my personal story on how I discovered and finally took the journey on how to earn money online.

I am one of the many people who aren't aware that there are ways to earn money online by doing specific jobs. When I started learning some basic things about computer and learned exploring the world wide web, I started becoming obsessed on being online. I was amazed and amused by how the internet works and what it offers. When I have homework, aside from my book, I usually get answers on the internet and do my research there. These obsession of mine leads me to becoming curious one day when I opened an article about ways to earn money online. Out of my curiosity, I never stopped searching different websites that offers making money online.

I'm a computer savvy and a frustrated writer and blogger. I was able to try different ways to earn an extra income using the internet. I have a full time job working in a BPO company now and earning an above average wage every month. My monthly salary helped me survive with my everyday needs and payments for my house rental and monthly bills. I wasn't able to save enough money due to the cost of living. It takes a month or two for me to be able to buy things that I want. Sometimes, I need to make a tough decision before using my savings on buying something that I want. I had to choose between "savings or buy things that I want". Ever since I started working and earning salary with my jobs, these two choices seems always to be present every time I have to decide. Later on, because of those circumstances and my urge to earn extra income, I started joining different websites that offers money making online such us PTC, Paid to read emails, surveys, crowd sourcing and many more. I even joined some scam sites due to my desperation in earning an extra money.

Now, I am proud to introduce with you, readers, that I have finally found some sites that  offers real job which will pay you real money. These sites are 100% legit. For you first timer who wants to earn, I recommend you the websites which I registered with and it's listed below.


ClickWorker

A crowd-souring site which is more similar to mturk. Jobs here are simple and easy. This site does not let you do jobs such as "Facebook likes, Watch youtube, SignUp and so on". 

Jobs at clickworker are more similar like those at mturk. From TEXT CREATION, EDITING, WEB RESEARCH, DATA TAGGING and DATA CATEGORIZATION, you will really feel that you are working in a private company and doing data entry at the comfort of your home. You can check out their website, read FAQ's and explore how it works.
Personally I was able to earn a decent amount working here.  My first job at clickworker was Data Categorization and I earn EUR 0.01 for every successful hit in just a second. I usually earn EUR 2 to EUR 4 in 1 hour. Not bad, Right? Clickworker Link
Similar sites I know are mturk, crowdtap, cloudcrowd, microworkers, jobbboy, taskrabit, fiverr etc.

Similar sites I know are freelancer.com, peopleperhour etc.

PTC (Paid to Click)


There are a lot of PTC sites you can signup with.

PTC (Paid to Click) sites offers you cents by clicking an advertisements that you can see on their websites. After​ ​clicking an advertisement, there was a count down timer and you need to wait until​ it ​ drops to zero. The money will automatically credited to your account when the timer stops. The money you can earn usually ranges from $0.001-5  (usually ​legit sites offer​ed​). If you want to earn higher cents they have this thing called premium user, silver, gold and etc. but you need to pay for this one to get the benefit of earning higher amount of money. You can also earn commissions with your referrals. PTC sites sets a minimum payout from $2 and up. I received my first payout with Trekpay (website closed). I've received $5 from them and paid me through my Paypal. I've never been so happy in my life when I saw $5 on my Paypal account from​ ​Trekpay. 

I signed up with so many PTC sites before, but now I am focusing with Clixsense and Neobux. Now, these sites aren't just PTC site we used know. They also offer different ways for you to earn money. Check them out. Links Below.  Similar sites I know zoombuck, swagbuck, buxp and many more.
