Hello,

I'm on a mission to make £535 a month online over the next 3 months.

I plan to focus on the following to help me get there:

- Proofreading

- Prolific Academic

- uTest


Matched betting is not an option (gambling history).


Wish me luck :).

.
Can I ask you what proofreading is(I know its reading text). How do you go about doing it?

Hi, @Dmelom. Proofreading is checking someone's content for spelling/grammatical errors and correcting it.

How do you go about doing it...as in checking the content, or looking for a proofreading job?

I just meant how do you get a job doing proofreading? Did you just search Google or are there any helpful sites?
Thanks.

I didn't take the Google-search route. I found my first two online proofreading jobs on Craigslist. The current one I do, I found via MTurk (run by Amazon).

This blog lists companies that hire proofreaders and editors: https://realwaystoearnmoneyonline.com/editing-and-proofreading.

This one too: https://earnsmartonlineclass.com/online-proofreading-jobs/.

(I'm not familiar with the second blog. I just found it via Google.)

I signed up to the site that you do your proof reading through as a proof reader, how long does it take to start getting jobs if you pass whatever tests they have?

I don't know how long it takes as that wasn't my process. I found them via MTurk and seamlessly started working for them when they moved over to their own platform.
