I stumbled upon Helpfulbox.com while browsing for available legitimate online jobs. One project poster is hiring for freelancers that can create thousands of questions and provide some answers as well. He mentioned about creating an account on helpfulbox.com. Out of curiosity, I checked the site right away and learned interesting things about the site.
What is helpfulbox.com?
It is a question and answer website. The company is mainly located in Kansas City, Mo. Everyone are free to ask and answer several questions.
How does it work?
You should register as a member on the site in order to gain some points and earn extra bucks. You fill out on the form your username, age, email and password. Then click on create account.
When asking question, just click Ask a Question on the upper right corner of the page. Select the category for your question. For guest users, you should provide your email so you will be notified when receiving answers to your question posted on the site. Next, you key in your question on the text box provided. Finally, enter the verification code to clear some spam bots then click submit.
When answering any question, click Unanswered which is still located on the upper right corner. There are several unanswered questions available on the page. Choose any of these questions which you think you can answer well. You may also click on any of the categories on the blue box just on the right portion of the page. There are some unanswered questions there. Click on any of these unanswered questions, key in your answer with a minimum of 30 words. Remember, do not copy paste your answer from any website. Your account will be automatically banned. In addition, do not give irrelevant answers, porn links, illegal and violent information. Do not answer the same question over and over again since the system will be able to detect your activity.
How to earn cash from the site?
You can only earn cash through providing quality answers. Question are not paid. Answer only those unanswered questions in order to earn some points. You can request for payment once you reached US$10. This means you need to answer around 500 questions to reach the minimum payout. However, there is a high chance that your payment would be doubled or tripled depending on the quality of your answers.
Now, answering several questions in a few days is quite difficult to achieve. Worry no more since you can ask help from your facebook friends and several others. They can login using your username and help you answer those available unanswered questions.
How much can I earn?
From the site's page, they posted there the corresponding amount of cash for questions you answered.
1000 answers = 25 dollars
2000 answers = 40 dollars
3000 answers = 65 dollars
How do I get paid?
Payment is through PayPal account. You can request payment using the site's contact form. You need to include the username you are using on the site and then your PayPal account. They will look over the answers you have generated before you get your pay.
Getting quite a measly pay for a long time of work is not for me. I rather ask questions instead. Well, if you have nothing much to do during your free time, this might be good for you. I have known some members from the site who tried to hire people to answer questions for them.
