Are you pretty savvy when it comes to online forums and social media? You can put those skills to good use by doing paid forum posting!
If you haven’t heard of paid forum posting, we’ll go over all the details! Including what it is, how much it pays, and where you can find paid forum posting jobs.
What is paid forum posting?
There are companies that hire people to post on their forums. These forums are usually either just starting (so they want the forum to seem more active to entice new people to join), or the forums are dead (and people want to resurrect the forums).
You will usually be asked to post a number of times a day or week, and the posts will need to seem like posts that “normal” users would naturally post. This means you should be replying to people, asking relevant questions, and adding new posts of your own.
Paid Forum Posting Requirements
To become a paid forum poster you of course need a computer, internet, and some time to actually do the work.
Also, it helps to be somewhat familiar with the forum you will be posting on. Do some research, see what content gets posted, and use this information when its time to make your own posts.
How much does paid forum posting pay?
Well, it depends on how many postings you do, and what company you’re working for. Most paid forum posting jobs pay per post, and you will earn an average of $0.25 per post.
