The tubes of the Internets are clogged with every get rich quick scheme in the book. So why not drop one more into the plumbing? Although today’s idea is a little bit different. Instead of a get rich quick scheme, I’m proposing a get rich slow scheme.
My idea is a site geared towards providing options for users that have some time on their hands that are looking to earn a little extra spending money. You can think of it as the online equivalent of a neighborhood lawn-mowing gig (sans grass-stained shoes). Users would jump on the site and have the opportunity to fill out simple marketing surveys, complete Mechanical Turk tasks, etc.. The site owner would start by providing some basic money making opportunities, and eventually users would be able to post their own simple get rich slow ideas.
There are a few keys to making this idea fly. First, it needs to be ridiculously legitimate, no flashing banners, no shady ‘too-good-to-be-true’ schemes, nothing like that. Second, the tighter you can integrate, the better. Best case scenario, the user could sign up once through the Ten Bucks A Day site, fill out surveys or watch ads, and get paid directly through the TBAD site.
