    Hello i have tried on craigslist applying to various online jobs but none of them worked.
    After replying to 20 ads i get only 1 email to ask where i am located.
    I am looking online for any type of work from managing social media accounts to being virtual assistant for basic tasks.
    I have tried fiverr but i hardly get an order a day.

    apply on elance or freelancer. You can definitely get more than $5/hour if you are skilled enough.

    I agree with keytenx, that's probably one of your better bets :)

    There is definately a lot of opportunities especially if you are only looking for $5 an hour (that is below min wage here). Look on Elance, Odesk (Upstart now I think), or freelancer.

    There's so many websites you can join to get job of 5$ per hour, you can look at freelancer, elance.

    or you can write blog posts and/or articles with good quality, put ads in that blog/website.

    Here in Brazil the minimum wage is 1.5$/h. Is there any way to earn more than 80$/day (everyday) as freelancer? (with a computer science degree).

    Problem with freelancer or odesk (currently upwork I think) is that you won't get jobs there unless:

    a) You pass a bunch of tests (all business costs)

    b) You have a ton of positive reviews and ratings on your profile

    c) You bid way too low and promise a faster turnaround than everybody else (that is what a lot of newbies do but the pay is not even enough to fill an adult's stomach lol). This one is tricky, there is always someone prepared to get an even lower payment and offer faster turnaround than you. Best bet is to bid on those projects with no bids at all

    That's been my personal experience with those sites. Then there are also those like iwriter or hirewriters which pay peanuts to writers but expect high quality content anyways.

    Definitely can't see how one can earn 5 USD per hour from any of those sites. I bade on dozens of projects but I always get an email like 'the project is closed' or 'awarded to another writer'. No idea about elance tho

    I am a writer myself and would love to get some long term clients (I do have a couple from this forum but they always send me short projects lol, nothing big). Considering that I charge quite low and deliver good quality content, I find it odd really when they say they are 'out of money' lol

    Review exchange looks a tad shady, unless every person in the group has more than one fiverr account (which again is against fiverr TOS). Fear of a fiverr ban keeps me from getting involved in such groups :D

    Nope Nope and Nope.

    You just need to explain the poster why are you fit for that job.
    I got a few jobs before as a VA, Social media experts and few more and they were paying me like $4 an hour.

    You just need to outshine. Yeah I never got any projects from Freelancer as I didnt wasted my time in that besides I got it from Odesk.

    So just keep working and dont fall behind.

    Cheers

    Hello .
    I am good at managing social media accounts whether it is a Facebook page or a twitter account, i can manage any thing.
    I can do article writing tasks too but i don't love to write as it is very tedious process to write.
    I can do all basic tasks like Emailing, any MS office tasks (PowerPoint,excel etc), web research, content moderator, any tasks related to chat support, Link Building( in forum comments or signature), can develop websites in wordpress ( including installing any plugin,theme or adding content) etc.
    Is there any related role for me?
