how about a new catagory of web based earnings? like survey sites, earnings sites (ie: inboxdollars.com), rewards sites that work (ie:mypoints), referall companies (like that energy company i keep hearing about), games for cash that work (gsn games), gambling sites that pay (only available outside the USA), deals sites (slickdeals.net)... etc
also the largest base of independent contractors outside of mystery shoppers that i know of are independent trucking contractors (hot hot stuff as this industry is projected to need 300,000 new truckers and pay has gone up 4% in the past year)... i have looked but cant find a site that seems independent because they are flooded with ads... also they usually run there own schools so that could be a subset within the catagory
There have been several threads started in general chat about different apps that pay. I think I remember a while ago one about paid surveys. Again these were in general chat. I would be willing to ask if they could be stickied in general chat so we could all see them and add to them if people thought that it would be a good idea. But as far as making a separate section, I would have to agree with dspeakes that it's a mystery shopping forum.
Well, everyone who shops at truck stops could post flyers.
I would guess many truck driver's discussions would be about people in 2500# Toyotas cutting them off on the approach to a red light and nearly turning into road kill as a result. But that's just a guess. Other discussions ... people who flash their high beams instead of turning lights on and off to signal them it's okay to move over, people who don't dim high beams when passing, people tailgating them to try to improve their gas mileage, people hanging in their blind spots.
My ex is a truck driver. They use technology -- GPS, smart phones, software to track per diem rates. They furnish their trucks with microwaves and mini-fridges, coffeemakers, TV's, radios. I think they still use CB radios on the road, at least some of them, anyway.
