There’s no doubt that there are literally 1000’s of ways to earn money online, but in recent times there has been an increase in opportunities that don’t require too much experience or knowledge to earn some extra cash online.
One of those methods is the Google-owned Prizes.org, and Work From Home Watchdog decided to pop over and see what all the fuss is about.
Prizes.org is primarily a competition-based website, where people can create competitions on just about anything (really!), and in return the winner earns a pre-determined cash amount.
Of course, prizes vary greatly from very easy competitions that pay a few dollars, to more detailed competitions that are worth $100 or more to the winner.
The most refreshing thing that I found about Prizes.org is the fact that the site is very user friendly. Once you’ve signed up (free to join), you are taken to the main page that is home to all the contests available at that time.
You also have the option to sort the competitions by time created, time left, prize, and entries, and this allows you to quickly find competitions that best suit you and your situation.
If you’re anything like me, I preferred to sort by ‘prize’ so that I could see the competitions with the biggest prizes first, but for those of you who are maybe looking for a quick competition where you could earn a few extra dollars, a quick double-click of the prizes tab will sort from lowest to highest payouts.
The other side of Prizes.org allows anyone to create their own competition, and although this does not directly allow our Work From Home Watchdog visitors to make money, it’s definitely worth mentioning.
Take a look for yourself at the wide variety of competitions on offer and you will see that there are some CRAZY ideas!
Maybe, just maybe, you could use Prizes.org at some point in the future to fulfil a task of your own? Being an Internet marketer I can definitely see that potential on offer, and the next time I need something related to my business created, I will definitely consider using Prizes.org.
Let’s be honest here…
From an earning point of view, Prizes.org is not going to make you a millionaire. The most popular types of competitions appear to be of low worth, and for most people it will probably become the kind of site they pop over to now and then if they need a little extra cash.
But that for me is the beauty of Prizes.org…it’s a fun and safe way to earn some extra cash online. If you’re looking for an opportunity that offers a lot more potential then I suggest that Prizes.org is not for you, but if you like the simple idea of making money for completing some pretty crazy tasks, Prizes.org could be right up your street!
As of July 13th 2012, Prizes.org will be winding up. Read more about Google’s announcement here.
