HOW TO: Make Money Online (the non-spammy way!)

“Do you want to earn some EXTRA cash?”

Have you seen those ads before?!

The first instinct for any decent netizen who sees something along those lines to quickly dismiss it as either a phishing attempt or scam that will 0nly bring trouble.  But does that mean that the only way to make money online is through scamming and cheating?

We’ll be sharing some cool new ways to earn money on the web. In the past, businesses used to rely on outsourcing, where they used to give the job to someone in India or China to do it since it was simple enough. However, nowadays they are moving more and more into crowdsourcing. Crowdsourcing is basically the act of giving the job to anyone out there on the web to do it, sometimes for free and other times for a fee depending on the service.

So the marriage of social media and jobs allowed for the creation of some interesting opportunity to earn a good buck if you have a certain skill set.

Heinz might be famous for its ’57 varieties’, but that was a portfolio for a long-lost age, when stores sold your brands, rather than competed via offerings of their own.

Therefore, and in efforts to innovate and freshen up, Heinz has launched its biggest umbrella brand marketing campaign to date, in a £5m push to build on its “emotional connection” with consumers.

The “It has to be Heinz” campaign has been designed to celebrate the way people perceive the food brand.
