Work from Home Job Lead: Lionbridge

Lionbridge offers several different opportunities, most notably working from home as a website rater. Basically you’re checking out websites to make sure they’re legit so people who are searching come up with the right results. You’re assessing the quality of the content from both a computer and a smartphone.

It’s an independent contractor position, ten to twenty hours per week. You must have a good command of the English language (read: fluent), and pass a two part exam.

I have heard mixed reviews for Lionbridge, some people love it and some people hate it because it can be tedious. From my research online I can see most people get paid $12 – $15 per hour.

Work From Home Job Lead: Naming Force

Naming Force isn’t a job in the sense that you will work from them steadily for an agreed upon rate. It’s more like a way to “win” some money now and then as a way to earn a little something extra from time to time.

Here’s how it works: A business uses Naming Force to crowd source business names. The names are voted for and the person who created the winning name gets money. So it’s really hit or miss, but a way to bring in some coin if needed.
