As we enter 2019, many people are thinking, what is the best way to make money online in 2019? Some of these methods are similar to previous years and there are some new ones that would surprise you.
A few of these have not yet hit the “mainstream” so now is probably the best time to get in and claim your share before it gets overcrowded.
1) Get Paid to Test Apps
Every day, there are thousands of apps hitting the app store. From games to emoji apps these programs are flooding the market.
A little-known fact is that these companies need to test the app before it hits the app store (or play store). These companies have spent thousands of dollars building this app and they need to make sure that when people try it there are no bugs or problems.
To do this, they pay people to test the apps for them. You can make money using your smartphone or tablet by testing apps.
This one is very different than the others. Micro Investing is a type of investment that allows you to invest small amounts of money.
Most brokerage if you told them you only wanted to invest $30 they would laugh you out of their offices. But with micro investing, you can now invest any amount you would like into the stock market.
There is a specific Micro Investing App out there that has treated me very well called Acorns. Acorns is different from other micro investing apps in that it has a feature called roundups. Roundups is a feature that automatically invests your change for you.
For example, you just went to Starbucks and bought a coffee for $2.71. Acorns would automatically round up you purchase to $3 and invest the $0.29 in your investment account.
This may not sound like a lot but it really starts to add up over the long run.
This is a screenshot of my acorns account. I invest $234.10 in the last month from roundups alone!
My advice is just set it up and forget about it. Then check it a few months later and find money in your investment account you did not even notice.
A quick note about the reviews on this site: I am an affiliate for every product I review. The vendors of these products give me them without charge in order for me to test them. However all my reviews are done as honestly as possible and I make no promises to the vendor prior to writing my review. Should you click a link on this site that takes you to a paid product this link will be an affiliate link and I will be paid a percentage of the sales price should you decide to purchase that product.
