Surveys will rarely send you anything unless you're doing something that specifically requires you to test a product. Most surveys I do don't even ask for name and address. When they do, it's just to check for repeat submissions and to account for the possibility of numerous submissions from a single location changing the survey results. I think I've only ever had one survey mail me anything, and it was a request to follow up for additional pay. Most just send emails though, but even those are pretty rare. I get less than 1% of surveys to email me for a follow up, and most of those are from mTurk.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Proofreaders earn around $36,960 on average for full-time work. The pay and amount of work varies by the proofreader’s availability and workload. A busy proofreader who can maintain several consistent clients may earn more, whereas someone who’s simply looking for opportunities in their free time will earn less.
Chances are you have already heard about affiliate marketing, but if you haven’t then I will tell you. It is helping to sell products which are not yours and getting paid a commission for it. The way to go about this is building a website or blog to market these products or using advertising sites to market them. I will advise you to get your own blog to do this since it’s more effective this way. You can sell anything on your blog but you need to focus on products that have a wide appeal. Your main aim is to make money but if you start promoting shoddy goods, it will end affecting your website in the long run. You can purchase some of these products yourself so that you are very confident in marketing them. There are a lot of affiliates you can join. I will just mention a few. Amazon affiliates is quite easy to join even if you are a new blogger, others will access your traffic before. You can consider, ShareASale, ClickBank and CJ affiliates because they are already well known.
With apps being constantly developed, competent app developers are in high demand.

However, some jobs do take a lot more work than that. I recently completed a 2-month long editing project with a major national company, and it required full-time work for me to reach my deadline in time. Because that meant I had to find sitters for my kids, and was not as able to devote myself to my other endeavors such as my writing and my blogs, I charged accordingly.
Survey availability comes and goes. In general, you can expect to have more work during the first few days that you sign up. This is simply because there will be more surveys waiting to be complete for a new user rather than for someone who is completing them as they come in. While this is typically the case, it is certainly possible for a new user not to have any surveys.
Offering specific online SEO services is also another online freelancer role that businesses are crying out for. If you know how to improve a website’s SEO by doing keyword research, creating content that can rank in search engines, adding metadata / schema to posts and pages, and building backlinks to a domain, to name a few tasks, then this could be a great line of work for you.
