Donation involves contributing money, goods, or services to a person or organization (like a charity). Donors may give donations out of the goods of their hearts, for a tax deduction, and/or in exchange for payment. For example, those donating plasma may receive compensation for their donation while also saving lives.
Stool donation involves donating your poop! The donated stool is used for research and medical procedures like fecal microbiota transplants. As a stool donor, you may need to meet strict health requirements, but this isn't always required. Stool donations may also need to be done on-site at a clinic, but at-home donations are sometimes accepted as well.
Education involves receiving or transmitting knowledge, skills, and character traits. It can be found in formal, non-formal, and informal settings. Formal education involves structured learning in places like schools. Non-formal education is similar but typically less structured. And informal education happens more naturally -- for example during daily life experiences. Keep in mind, each type is just as valuable as the next. Successful education can lead to better health, opportunities, social stability, and more.
Learning involves acquiring new skills, knowledge, values, behaviors, or similar. As a learner, you may learn through experience, study, or by being taught.
Finance encompasses everything to do with the study and management of money, including things like financial analysis, advising, planning, budgeting, and investing. The three main sectors of finance are public (aka government) finance, corporate finance, and personal finance.
Gambling involves wagering money (or something else of value) on a game or event of chance or luck. By staking and risking something of value, gamblers hope to win something else of value. Common forms of gambling include the lottery, sports betting, and slot machines.
Raffle entry involves entering into raffles for the chance to win money or other prizes. Like sweepstakes, raffles are purely based on luck, with winners chosen at random. Unlike sweepstakes, however, raffles are not free to enter. Raffle entrants must purchase raffle tickets to have a chance of winning. This is why raffles are considered a form of gambling.
Gaming involves playing things like video games, card games, board games, and more. It can also involve brain games like quizzes or trivia questions. As a gamer, you might also be tasked with completing missions or facing off against other players.
Browser gaming involves playing video games through a web browser like Edge or Google Chrome.
Console gaming involves playing video games on gaming consoles like the Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo Switch.
Gaming offers reward users for reaching specific milestones in games. These milestones can be level-based, mission-based, or similar, and often must be completed within a certain time frame. For example, an offer for a puzzle game might require you to complete the first 10 levels of the game within a week. While this may sound easy, some companies set up their game offers to be so difficult that players must make in-game purchases to succeed. This isn't always the case, but it does happen.
PC gaming involves playing video games on a personal computer rather than a gaming console or mobile device.
Quiz-taking involves answering a series of short questions, typically on a specific subject. Most quizzes contain ten or fewer questions, but single-question trivia is common too. As a quiz taker, you'll test your general knowledge, gain quick feedback, and learn new things along the way.
Smartphone gaming involves playing video game apps designed for iPhones, Android phones, and similar.

Investing involves putting your money to work by purchasing assets or funding ventures. As an investor, your goal is to choose productive, profitable investments. These should either appreciate in value over time, provide income, or both. Of course, that's easier said than done. Investing, unlike saving money, is never completely risk-free.
Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are a type of pooled investment vehicle. Like mutual funds, ETFs track a basket of securities. These can include stocks, bonds, commodities (like gold), currencies, and more. Unlike mutual funds, ETFs are traded on stock exchanges. That means you can buy or sell shares of ETFs the same way you would stocks. There are plenty of different ETFs to choose from too. You can find ETFs that passively track indexes like the S&P 500, invest in specific sectors like real estate, and more.
Create and execute promotional strategies to help make products, services, people, and other things more well-known. Find advertising opportunities, manage and optimize campaigns, monitor trends, and more.
Find creative ways to promote and market things purely through the internet. Run digital advertising campaigns, optimize websites for search engine traffic, grow email lists, and more.
Market research is the process of gathering and studying information in order to better understand a target market or audience. It's typically used to gauge the viability of a new product or service or to improve a business's functions in some way. In some cases, it may involve working directly with current and potential customers through things like surveys or focus groups.
Word-of-mouth marketing (aka WOMM, WOM marketing, or word-of-mouth advertising) involves spreading awareness about a product or service by getting people to talk about it. For example, one form of word-of-mouth marketing may involve setting up a "selfie stand" that encourages customers to post about your business on social media. This type of marketing is powerful as it feels much more natural and trustworthy vs. something like paid advertising.
Modeling involves using your body (or parts of it) to help sell products or create artwork. As a model, you may help promote clothing or a range of other products. Or, you may be asked to pose for a painting. Besides being photographed, models also work on runways, typically showing off fashion pieces to a live audience.
Performing involves providing entertainment in the form of acting, singing, dancing, or playing an instrument. Some performers do their work in front of live audiences while others conduct their craft behind the scenes. For example, while a theatre actor performs in front of a crowd, a voice-over actor does their work in private.
Take on the role of another character and perform in commercials, plays, movies, or other media productions.
Tell stories, record events, and communicate ideas and feelings through images. Take photos of things like people, places, events, and objects.
Read written or printed material including stories, speeches, biographies, guides, and more. You may even help edit or improve these written materials with your feedback.
Copy editing involves reading and revising written material by looking for grammar, style, spelling, punctuation mistakes, and more, with the end goal of improving readability.
Research participation involves voluntarily taking part in different types of studies such as market research studies or clinical trials. As a research participant, depending on the type of study, trial, or experiment you participate in, you may be asked to contribute your opinions, thoughts, data, and/or physical body.
Clinical research participation involves contributing to studies and trials related to medicine, surgical procedures, and behavioral science. As a clinical research participant, you may be invited to test new drugs, medical devices, procedures, or lifestyle changes. For example, you may be asked to change your diet or try a new weight loss pill. Your contributions will help doctors improve their diagnosis and treatment of diseases, injuries, and more.
Data sharing involves making particular details about your research, life, work, or otherwise, available to other researchers. By participating in paid data sharing opportunities as an individual, you may be asked to share things like your digital browsing habits, shopping preferences, media streaming activities, or similar.
Diary study participation involves recording and sharing parts of your day with researchers, typically over a multi-day period. For example, a diary study about food preferences may ask you to record everything you eat in a week. Of course, the subject matter across different studies can vary. There are diary studies on sleep, finance, hobbies, and more. With different types of diary studies, different recording methods may be required as well. For example, some researchers may ask you to write everything in a physical notebook. Others, however, may prefer an online recording (like in a spreadsheet).
Focus group participation involves taking part in live interview-style research studies. These studies are done either one-on-one or in a group and are typically conducted online, in person, through the mail, or over the phone. As a focus group participant, you'll be expected to share your honest thoughts and opinions throughout the entire study, and may be asked to answer specific questions, take part in open discussions, test products, and more.
Market research participation involves contributing to studies related to consumer needs and preferences. As a market research participant, you'll answer questions about things like your shopping habits, political views, entertainment preferences, and more. These questions will typically come in the form of surveys, polls, or live interviews. The answers you give will help brands improve their products and marketing campaigns.
Poll taking involves answering short questions, similar to survey taking. The difference between a poll and a survey, however, is that polls are typically much shorter -- usually consisting of just a single question. They're also usually answered via multiple choice. This makes polls much easier and quicker to complete vs. a survey.
Survey taking involves sharing your opinions and thoughts through things like questionnaires, polls, and interviews. These surveys can take place online, in person, over the phone, and even through the mail. As a survey taker, your unique input may help influence branding updates, new products, marketing strategies, and more!
Reviewing involves using or examining something to assess its quality. During this process, verbal or written feedback is usually given. This feedback is then used to make improvements to the thing being reviewed.
Ad reviewing involves giving feedback on advertisements. These advertisements could be in the form of a video, image, audio clip, or even a written letter. As an ad reviewer, your feedback should come from the position of a potential consumer rather than a marketing expert.
Rewards are given out to recognize someone's loyalty, participation, effort, service, or achievement. The type of reward given can range from something tangible -- like cash, gift cards, or a vacation -- to something intangible -- like a plaque or a celebration party.
Competing involves going up against others in a challenge of skill. As a competitor, you'll enter competitions or contests to win rewards. Those rewards (or prizes) could be trophies, cash, or similar. For example, many graphic designers enter online contests to win cash prizes. Gamers also often enter tournaments to win large cash prizes.
Loyalty rewards are a type of reward given out to recognize one's consistent effort and devotion to a cause or organization.
Promotional offer completion involves voluntarily participating in a promotion to earn a reward. To complete a promo offer, you may be asked to sign up for a free (or paid) service, buy a product, install an app, or similar.
Sweepstakes are a type of promotion or contest that you can enter for free for the chance of winning a prize. That prize could be cash, a physical product, or something else. Winners of sweepstakes are selected completely at random. A sweepstakes entrant cannot increase their chances of winning by spending money.
Web searching involves using a search engine to explore the internet.
Take part in the activities of selling goods or services for money.
Shopping involves browsing for goods with or without the intent of purchasing them. As a shopper, you may be tasked with finding deals, purchasing goods on behalf of clients, evaluating retail establishments, and more.
Cashback (or cash back) is an amount of money received in exchange for purchasing something. Shoppers typically earn cashback by using a specific payment method (i.e. a credit card) or by shopping through cashback platforms. Companies use cashback rewards as an incentive to encourage purchases.
Mystery shopping is typically hired out by retailers or market research companies and involves sending "undercover customers" into stores. As a mystery shopper, you could be tasked with evaluating an establishment's customer service, product displays, storefront, or similar. Afterward, you may be required to fill out a form or survey to share what you learned from your secret shopping trip.
Receipt sharing involves scanning, uploading, or forwarding your receipts to a platform or researcher in order to earn rewards or be considered for other opportunities. Platforms and researchers are interested in collecting consumer receipts in order to learn more about things like where people are shopping, what they're buying, the quantities they're buying in, how much they're spending on each individual product, what (if any) promos or coupons they're taking advantage of, the total amount they're spending, and more. All of this information can be used to better improve products and marketing tactics.
Test software, physical products, and other goods for bugs, usability issues, defects, and other problems, in order to help make them better.
Exploratory testing (or unscripted testing) is a freestyle approach to testing. Rather than following a predefined test case (i.e. specific steps with expected outcomes), testers doing exploratory testing must make up their own test cases as they go. This requires more experience, creativity, and time, but can help uncover bugs and other defects that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Functional testing seeks to confirm that a product's features work the way they're supposed to. For example, lets say a web app has a sign-up form; a functional test for said web app may involve providing proper and improper input to the sign-up form to ensure only proper input results in an account being created.
Non-functional testing, as opposed to functional testing, seeks to test how well a product works and performs rather than whether or not it does what it's supposed to do. For that reason, non-functional testing usually happens after functional testing. Attributes that are tested during non-functional testing include accessibility, usability, compatibility, security, performance, and more.
Physical product testing involves receiving and evaluating tangible goods. These could include things such as electronics, cosmetics, household goods, and more. As a product tester, you'll be tasked with assessing a product's packaging, design, functionality, and/or durability. You'll then need to submit a written or recorded review/breakdown of what you liked and didn't like about the product.
Scripted testing, as opposed to exploratory testing, is a testing approach that involves following specific test cases. Test cases contain steps and expected outcomes for testing different aspects of a product. For example, a very basic test case for a light switch might look like this: Step 1. Flip the light switch on (output: light turns on) Step 2. Flip the light switch off (output: light turns off).
Software testing involves examining and experimenting with applications, operating systems, video games, websites, and other types of software to uncover errors.
Website testing involves examining and experimenting with websites and individual web pages to uncover errors and other problems.
Listen to audio recordings and convert them into text using a computer, keyboard, and, in some cases, specialized software.
Convert written text from one language to another while maintaining the same style, tone, and meaning.
Take part in the process of producing video content like movies, short films, commercials, YouTube videos, and more.
Animation is the art of using still images, graphics, and/or figures to produce 2D and 3D videos. Animators create and capture multiple images (called frames) by either hand-drawing them, using physical figures, or enlisting the help of computer software. They then piece the frames together and display them in a rapid sequence to create the illusion of movement.
Video watching involves consuming moving visual media. This includes things like ads, television series, movies, livestreams, and more.
Online video watching involves consuming moving visual media through the web. This could include things like Youtube videos, Netflix movies, Twitch livestreams, or similar. People typically pay others to watch their online videos to generate views or ad revenue.
Use your language and word skills to share knowledge, entertain, persuade, motivate, or do all of the above.
Business writing is a professional form of writing that's typically used to communicate information in an instructional, informational, persuasive, and/or transactional way. Business writers may be involved in writing emails, letters, memos, reports, handbooks, press releases, newsletters, and other business-related documents in a concise and accurate manner.
Write pursuasive text (a.k.a. copy) that's intended to be used in advertising, marketing, or sales.
Financial writing involves creating content (print or digital) around a wide range of money-related topics. Some financial writers may create educational pieces focused on personal finance, some may put together commentaries on the latest business headlines, and some may focus on publishing analyses of stocks and other financial assets.
Write books, blogs, speeches, or other works of literature under someone else's name.
Technical writing is a type of writing that's used to explain complex information and systems. Technical writers may be tasked with conveying complicated information to less knowledgeable audiences for informational or marketing purposes, or they may simply write for other experts in their field. Common technical documents include white papers, user manuals, scientific papers, case studies, and software documentation, but there are others as well.
