Here lately I have gotten a fair amount of emails from folks asking me how to make money answering questions?
Well, it just so happens that I wrote a post similar to this one a few years back discussing this topic but it probably needs to be updated.
After doing some research on this subject and digging deep I was able to uncover enough information to write a much more detailed and up to date post on this topic.
In the following post, I’ll be showing you 3 highly lucrative ways that you can make money answering peoples questions.
I’m sure that many of you guys may have questions about this topic and ill be doing my absolute best to answer them within the context of this post.
However, if I don’t and you still have any remaining questions I would love to answer them for you in the comments section below this post.
Let’s Get Started, Shall We?
1) Affiliate Marketing
This is something that is near and dear to my heart and a business model I have been utilizing for the past 5+ years now to earn an insane amount of money online.
Most people don’t have any idea what the heck I’m talking about when I tell them I’m an affiliate marketer and they seem to be even more confused when I tell them I get paid to answer peoples questions that they type into Google.
Allow me to explain how all of this works and break it down for you guys to give you a better understanding of how this ties into this category.
What was the last thing you searched for online or typed into Google or another search engine?
Were you searching for answers to a question(s) that you had or looking for directions on how to do something?
As an affiliate marketer, I answer all types of questions on a daily basis and point people to a product or service that will provide them with a solution and an answer to their question (s).
Here are a few Q& A posts that I have written that has helped a wide variety of people which has also contributed to a good size of my monthly income
After doing a great amount of research on the following questions above I was able to write a detailed post for each one of the questions above answering these questions in detail.
I would then recommend the product or service that I believe would help provide them with a solution to their problem and fulfill their search.
Does this make sense to you guys?
If not, let me know about it in the comments below!!

How Much Can You Make Answering Questions?
To be quite honest with you guys today there is no REAL answer to this question as this all depends on you and how much work you’re willing to put in.
Ideally, I tell everyone who just gets started here to give yourself a good year before you start to see any results or start making any good money.
However, everyone picks up this stuff differently than the next person so what takes 1 person a year or more to achieve, could only take the next person 3 to 4 months.
Take a look at how much I was able to personally earn from this in only 10 short months below!!
I had originally started this venture back in Feb 2013 and it took me only 4 short months to make enough to cash out and get paid.
Pretty sweet if you ask me, wouldn’t you guys agree?
This was one of the happiest days of my life and it’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 6 years since I made my first sale.
Seems like it was just yesterday!!
2) Answering Questions On Quora
If you have been in the online space for a good number of years, you may have heard of the online community Q& A forum called Quora.
For those of you who haven’t heard of this company, it’s basically an online public forum where you can register for free and ask their massive online community of members any question you want.
This company has been constantly evolving by adding additional features to its forum each and every month.
Here recently, they have added a feature called sponsored questions.
This is where big-name companies can ask specific questions and offer a reward to the person they feel has given the best thought out and detailed answer.
For example, you might be looking to start up an autoresponder service that offers opt-in forms lead capture pages, and email templates but you need to know what all your competition has to offer first.
You could ask the community something like:
“What Is The Best Autoresponder Out There With The Highest Quality Tools?”
You could then sponsor this question and offer a reward to the person who provides you with the best answer.
Depending on how detailed, thorough, and thought out your questions are you could earn a great deal of money from this alone as the potential here is unlimited.
I personally know many people who are earning up to $1,000 a month from answering questions alone so this is something that you definitely shouldn’t pass over as it can be quite profitable.
3) Completing Surveys
While this might not exactly be the most profitable way to earn money answering questions it definitely helps out whether you’re looking for some easy gas money or a way to fund taking your significant other out on a date.
Here recently I wrote a detailed post on the 5 GPT sites that pay the most for answering questions and providing your honest opinion on some of the hottest topics in the world today.
I personally make a decent amount of money each month ($50-$100 monthly) for completing surveys, voting in polls, and providing my feedback on various question and answer sites.
Here are the top sites that I am using on a day to day basis that pay the most for answering questions
If you’re the type of person who enjoys taking surveys and sharing your opinions on some of the most pressing issues in the world today and being compensated for doing so then you should definitely check out the sites I’ve listed above as an excellent way to do so.
Here is a sneak peek at multiple payments I have earned from a few of the survey/ GPT sites that I have listed above
I know that these amounts may not seem like a whole lot to you guys but for something that took less than a half hour each day to do isn’t that bad at all if you ask me.
Wouldn’t you guys agree?
The first screenshot that you guys see above is from a survey panel that you all may be very familiar with called Survey Junkie.
The second one being PaidViewpoint which isn’t listed in the list above cause it’s not exactly a GPT site but more like a survey panel.
However, since I am currently earning money with this company of a regular basis for answering simple questions and offering my opinion I figured I would include it with my list of sites that pay me to answer questions.
Which Method Is The Most Lucrative Way To Make Money?
I have personally earned money with 2 out of 3 of these methods so I know they work and can provide you with powerful results if you’re willing to put in the hard work.
While I have yet to earn any type of money with Quora this is on my to do list an I hope to achieve this within the coming year.
If I had to narrow this down to 1 method that works the best for me it would be affiliate marketing.
This is simply due to the fact that I have been earning a full time living from this business model for nearly 5 years now and it has nearly been 6 years since I made my first sale.
While I admit it can take quite some time before you see any type of results from it which can be quite annoying if you’re willing to put in the hard work and think of this long term it CAN & WILL pay off for you in the long run.
Answering questions on Quora and participating in GPT/ survey sites can be an excellent side hustle but if you’re serious about making money answering peoples questions and helping them out affiliate marketing is definitely the way to go.

The place that has helped me out the most when it comes to learning how all of this works is Wealthy Affiliate.
It’s because of their step by step task based training lessons that I have been able to earn as much money as I have when I first started out now in the online world.
