Earning extra income has always been interesting to me, so when I was invited to try popular apps to earn money for Express.co.uk, I jumped at the chance. However, even I couldn’t believe it when one I tried shows you how you can earn up to £10,000 for ten minutes of work.
While the money you can earn isn’t a fortune, it adds up quickly – and if you still enjoy shopping or playing games – it might not seem like a chore.
People can earn money by taking surveys, watching videos, using a search engine, playing games, and shopping.
Survey Junkie is an online survey site that also allows people to earn a few dollars a day in their free time.
For me though, as a busy mom, I found these apps a bit time consuming with not enough reward to make it worth it.
Recently, a photography enthusiast friend of mine mentioned that she was using ClickASnap to earn some extra income.
Apparently the app allows him to sell his photos worldwide and is similar to Spotify, but for the imagery.

Again, this won’t make someone a fortune, but if they still love photography, this could be a great way to fund a restaurant meal once a month.
While my friend loves taking pictures, I’m still looking for something that will give me a decent income for a lot less work.
One of the best money making apps in my opinion is YouSpotProperty as it gives you the chance to win up to £10,000.
Yes, you read that right – but to earn that kind of dosh, you’ll have to search for abandoned properties that could be sold to developers.
Users who report a property that meets the criteria will receive a £20 gift voucher, but they will receive one per cent of the sale price later if the transaction goes ahead.
Even though I haven’t made any money yet because I just signed up, others are raving about it and I can see why.
Nathan Sefton said: “I am extremely happy to say that I have submitted several properties and received vouchers for the spot, I have now had confirmation of the first sale of a spot and am delighted.
“It’s something that takes a few spare minutes and is highly rewarded and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
“You see the property has helped me so much with the extra money that I find it very rewarding financially and socially knowing that I am benefiting my area by filling up run down empty houses and bringing them up to standard.
“I can happily report that communication from your property team has always been excellent and I have received emails to verify submitted properties if the address information may be incorrect proving they are genuine in rewarding places.”
Searching for properties can be done on the dog walk or on the way to the shops and it only takes ten minutes to pick up a property and upload it to the app. I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for empty properties near me in the hope of receiving £10,000. I’ll keep you posted!
