How can you make money online from watching videos?
Do you know what most teenagers will do in their free time? Browsing the images and watching videos posted on the social networking apps like Facebook, Twitter etc. Of course, nobody pays them for liking a post, sharing a link or posting a tweet. Actually, there are some GPT websites and mobile apps where you will get paid to watch videos. The only thing you need is an internet connection with good speed. You can use any device like mobile, desktop computer, tablet or laptop for watching videos.
It depends on how much time you spend daily for watching videos and also on your geographical location. Generally, users in USA and UK can earn more money when compared with users located in rest of the world. You can earn $10 to $100 per month without doing much work.
Do you need to sit and watch all the videos?
No. You don’t have to watch all the videos by yourself. Just you have to check the device every 30 minutes or 1 hour and make sure that the videos are being played.
Can you watch the same video on more than one device?
It depends on the policy of the website you use for watching videos. Personally, I am not in favor of that. If you have more than one device, you can use both at the same time to watch videos from different sources.
What are the various ways to make money online from watching videos?
Below are the websites that I use to earn money from watching videos. ( I will update this section if I find more sources :-)).
There are two ways in Swagbucks for earning money from watching videos.
Swagbucks has 6 different mobile apps for watching videos. If you have already a member of the Swagbucks website, you can use the same login credentials for these apps. Given below are the links for the apps that can be downloaded from the Google play store. ( I hope it is available for iOS also).
For every app, you can find videos in many categories.
- Just open a video from any one of the categories and leave the device undisturbed.
- Check every 15 minutes or so and make sure it is running. If you see any pop-up ads, just close the ad so that the video will continue again.
- Let the videos run till you see a similar message like this. ‘ You have hit today’s earning limit of SB’.
Repeat the 3 steps for all the 6 apps from Swagbucks.
Some apps pay 2 SB for every 5 videos while others pay 2 SB for every 10 videos. Each app has a daily limit of 10 SB. If you still watch the videos after completing the daily limit, you will not be paid.
Total SB that can be earned per day = 6 x 10 = 60 SB
Total SB that can be earned per month = 30 x 60 = 1800 SB ($18)
If you are already a member of the Swagbucks website, log on to the website and click the link ‘Watch’ on the left-hand side of the screen under the heading ‘Earn Your SB’. You will see a screen similar to the one below.
There are two ways in InboxDollars to earn money from watching videos.
You can earn few cents for watching the videos in InboxDollars TV. If you are already a registered member of InboxDollars, follow the steps below.
- Click the link TV on home page
- It starts showing some videos. You will also see a progress bar that will move slowly as the video progresses. There will be three small rectangles with the following symbols placed in it respectively:$,$$,$$$.
- Wait till the progress bar reaches any of the rectangles. Once it reaches the rectangle, you will have to either scratch the boxes to earn money or to continue for higher earning. Most of the times, it will give the following amount of money.
- $ – 1 or 2 cents
- $$ – 4 cents
- $$$ – 8 or 10 cents
You can continue the above steps till you reach the daily limit. ( I use this 1 to 3 times per day ).If you set a goal of 30 cents daily using this method, you can easily earn $9 per month.
Click the link ‘Videos’ on the home page of InboxDollars. You can see several videos listed there with the title ‘earn $0.01’. You will easily get $0.01 for watching any of these videos. If you set a goal of watching 10 videos daily using this method, you can easily earn 30 x 0.10 = $3 per month.
Grabpoints has a lot of video playlists on their website. If you are already a registered member of Grabpoints, click the link ‘Watch videos’ on the left-hand side of your screen under the heading ‘Earn’. You will see a similar screen like the one below.
In this section, check out the one titled ‘Grabpoints TV’. It has more than 1000 videos arranged in various categories.
- You will get 1 point for watching one video.
- Choose a category, start the video playlist and let it run for an hour or so to get 50 to 100 points easily.
If you set a daily goal of 100 points, you can easily earn 100×30 = 3000 points ($3) per month.
In this section, you will see a lot of video playlists like App Trailers, Movie Trailers, Food Trailers and more. You will get 5 points to watch 3 videos or 10 points to watch 9 videos.
If you set a daily goal of 100 points from this section, you can easily earn 100×30 = 3000 points ($3) per month.
So, the total passive income that can be earned from the above sources for watching videos is $40-$50 per month.
