Cha Cha is a text messaging service that answers people's questions, big or small, important or silly. People text their questions to 242-242, and before long someone texts you back with the answer. That someone could be you, if you qualify and Cha Cha is in need of new guides. Cha Cha guides can be just about anyone, though there are some restrictions. It's not a job that will make you rich. Still, it can be a good part-time job for stay-at-home moms and dads, college students, or anyone else with Internet searching skills, some extra time, and a desire to make some extra cash.
Cha Cha is not always in need of guides. Check their website to see if they need guides. Pay is on a "per-transaction" payment. Cha Cha reports that the average pay rate ranges between $3 and $9. The expeditor takes incoming questions and puts them into standard form, finds out whether there is an existing answer already in the system, and, if not, directs it to the proper guide. The generalist takes incoming questions, answering on a wide variety of subject areas. The specialist is like the generalist, but has a specific area of expertise and answers mostly to that area. A transcriber takes questions that have been called in (to 1-800-2ChaCha) and puts them into text format.
Sign up is easy. But you do have to pass a test.
