How to Increase your Salary

There are many ways to increase your income. There are many ways to try that are fruitless. but there are ways to increase your income by small or large increments. Any increase is good. Unless it involves more effort than value.

I have tried many ways to increase my income and found only a few that actually worked.

You can try many ways to increase your income, but you have to consider the level on investment you make into your quest for money and way it against the value of the growth.
You can not work for a year on a project and only make pennies a day. It would just not be worth your effort.

One thing I have found, is to have fun with it. If it isn’t fun, then it isn’t worth the effort.

Make Small Income Online

About four years ago I started doing a search online for ” Make money online”. That ended up getting tons of spam in my email, and lord only knows how many viruses. People are sick. I have no idea why you want to give a virus to someone who is broke. Anyone for that matter. I figured out something simple. If it takes more than two minutes to sign up for a sight, it’s most likely garbage. Still I continued in my march to be successful online. Truth is though, that will not happen. What I did find, is that you can make small amounts of money on each site, and then cash them all in at the same time and have a decent income that way. Well okay, maybe at least an income. I think the trick is, is continually find places like the ones I have found, and add them to the list of sites I will work from. Reason is, they don’t  always have stuff for me to do. So while waiting on one site, I can do stuff for the others.

All of the sites I work on have surveys for me to do and pay me for my time. it’s usually 2-3 dollars for 15 minutes. I have however done some that paid me 75-100 for 45 minutes. There used to be more sites in my list, but really The ones I removed from my list just where not  up to standard. I try to calculate how much money they offer for the amount of time estimated for the survey and then multiply the time to equal an hour and estimate how much money I make an hour. If it is not up to my standards, I refuse to do the survey. If they send to many of the low pay, I unsubscribe to the mailing list.

Some of the survey sites do a point system. i am not comfortable with the point system. Most of the sites that use points just do not pay enough. They have huge point margins before you can cash out. That is not very good. That means the companies that pay the survey site to get surveys, is keeping a greater amount of the money to split with you for your efforts. Well, that is not fair. You do your part, they are supposed to do their part. It’s a fair trade when done right.

List of free sites to sign up for to do reviews. Make small, very small amounts of money and let it build up.

Survey Savvy Pays very well, but not a bunch of surveys.

Inbox Dollars They send you Surveys and they send you emails to look at. Money builds up good.

Opinion Outpost Has many fair to good surveys, occasional super high pay out surveys.

A.C.O.P Surveys Pays good has many surveys.

Buxto Not much pay but is easy. Takes a while to build up $$. Do not send them money, just log in, view your ads and leave.

This will not get you rich, but it is extra money on the side. If you are jobless this will not support you. It will how ever bring money in. If you have a job and it isn’t the best paying job, this will increase your income, not by a bunch but enough to make you happier. Lets me buy stuff that I normally can’t afford.

How to Search For a Job

First thing is you need to have something in mind. You need to know what you want to be doing for a living. It’s best to think of what you love to do. I know it seems like you will make a job out of your fun time in free time, but imagine giving up the rest of your life to do something you have no emotions on at all.

These days just jumping in your car and floating about, place to place to fill out applications at what ever business is open, leaves you working a job that you will soon get sick of. Those days are long now. You should not even think of being that way or doing that forever anymore. We have so many job search engines on the internet that you can almost be 100% specific about your daily tasks. you just have to know how to use them. For example. Look at the top right of this page. I put a search up there that is specific to job hunting. It searches all of the top sites. I kind of reduce all of the work for you. Just type in what you are looking for and watch the results. There will be at least 5 job search sites that it will search for the position you are looking to fill.

Think of how that works and keep that in mind while you are job hunting. Job hunting works a whole lot like that. Only I simplified that  for you (or me if I lose my job). If I wanted to be a bartender I would type something bartender related, Like simply the word Bartender and the name of my city. Or night club. Or if I wanted to me a gas station manager I would just type gas station manager. I would in no way aim low. I would not look for  cashier job in a gas station because the pay is crummy and there is lesser insurance with almost no bonus if any. aim high and apply. Let the boss know right away that you have high morals and higher intentions. Do not plan to be on the bottom. do not plan to take the lowest pay just so long as you get some pay. If you do not heed those words, you will get that and be treated like that. The whole time you work there, you will be that. don’t aim to be a waiter/waitress or you will make crummy pay, get treated like meat. You will be uncreditable because your income is way to low, and you will never see advancement. If you get stuck with the lesser job, ok, sorry. You might want to consider using it for money for now, but voice yourself as wanting a higher position and watch the reaction of those you say it to. If you get a bad result. Get job searching quick and get out of there. Do not just quit the place unless you have someplace better to land.

Keep focus on a pay scale. You have a lifestyle you want to live. You can not get that life if you do not have the income it takes to maintain such a lifestyle. You can not finance everything on magic money. you have to live within your means. if your means are low, so is the value of your possessions. If you do not keep that goal, you will lose a lot of great things.  You have to make your pay scale goal, and hope for raises.

You have to communicate with the person doing the hiring. You can not be shy and you can not be forceful. it’s either pass or fail. Remember they are paying you for your services. You are not giving up your time for their pay. If the place can not pay you what you need, search for more places and keep that one in mind.

Do your math. If you are getting weak and ready to take some job that just comes your way, add up all of your monthly bills. add 1/6 to that so you have room for error and life’s little riddles. that is your low goal. anything better in pay than that, is your ideal target.

Self esteem. Never tell yourself that you are not good enough. Never say anything is unrealistic. You have the whole internet out there. you can now find it. It is there and it is perfect for you.

Finding a job is easy. It’s harder to find an employee you can trust that isn’t Completely insane. Remember that.
