4. Get Paid to Search
Services such as Microsoft Rewards offer incentives to users who search and browse the web with Microsoft. You can then redeem the points for rewards like movies, games, gift cards and apps.
Another site where you can earn points while you search, shop and watch is Swagbucks, which has paid out over $280 million to its members to date.
5. Install Software
You need your own website to take advantage of this nontraditional job opportunity. However, installing software is one of the easier ways to use technology to make money.
Sites such as PerInstallCash offer money to users in exchange for hosting software on their pages. You get paid when visitors download and install the software from you.
