5 Legit ways to make money online in South Africa

Don’t you just hate it when you search for legit ways to make money online and all you get are answers that aren’t useful? Well, worry not! In this post, you’ll find out practical ways you can actually make money online in South Africa.  

  1. Become a freelance transcriptionist, captioner, or a translator

Do you know you can make money online by listening to audio files and translating what is in the audio into text? Alternatively, you can watch videos and create subtitles for them. All you have to do is sign up to be either a freelance transcriptionist, captioner, or translator on one of the sites that provide these services. One of the most popular is Rev.com. To be a freelancer on their site you need to pass a test that you’ll be given when you sign up.

2. Take surveys

It is so hard to find surveys that aren’t a scam. However, there are some that are actually legit. Some of them include Toluna influencers, which requires you to either play games or answer polls to earn points. You can also earn points by inviting friends to join the site and complete tasks. You can also try Surveytime, which pays $1 for every survey you complete.

3. Complete tasks on apps

You can sign up for money apps that pay individuals for every task you complete successfully. Apps like WowApp, award you with points (which you can convert to cash) every time you watch a video, play a game, or take a survey.

4. Become an online tutor

You can become an online tutor if you have a specific skill that others are ready to pay for to learn from you. English is one of the most popular subjects that people want tutors for. You can earn up to R200 – R350 per hour teaching English to people from countries in which English is not a first or official language. You can sign up to be an English tutor on DaDa, which is an online English education platform based in China.

5. Start a blog

Are you a good writer? You can set up a blog and start making money from it through affiliate links, selling products, or placing ads on your site.
