One little known, and untapped resource is working as a psychic. If you have some ability, and some experience, these platforms will work with you. I have worked for each and every one of them, and certainly have my own preferences, but it really depends on what you are comfortable with and how you want to work (phone, chat, text, email, or video). The commission varies widely from platform to platform and while one may have a lower commission to another site, in some cases, you may get more work through the lower commission site and thus, make more money. There is no real rhythm or reason to peak hours with these either, but I will often work multiple sites at the same time and get consist, back to back work for a few hours a week and make a few hundred FAST.
It is worth noting, however, that some of these take time to get set up. All will require you to pass a test reading with them. Some require additional training (you are not paid for the training, but it also doesn’t cost you either). So, while it can take up to 2 weeks to get completely set up on the platforms, it is FAST cash. I try to outline the most important points of each site below, but if you have experience that you would like added to this list, please write me at email@example.com
One last thing, before we get talking about the platforms, is to choose your stage name. As a psychic, you are known as an “Entertainer” (I know this is a pet peeve of mine, but part of a new requirement when it comes to advertising for psychic services) and thus, it is HIGHLY advised to choose a good stage name. You can use the same one for several sites, but some will require a unique, and never before used name or they choose one for you (psychic source and hollywood psychics for example are like this). So be creative!
Type: Live video
Considerations: This is a great site with a lot of traffic. You will be required to complete a test reading, go through set up requirements, and test your internet speed, audio, and video quality. You will need a HD camera and good mic (I suggest a Yeti Blue). After you make your first $100, you can create a pre-branded website on their main platform to drive more traffic. They offer incentives for top psychics too. You will spend a lot of time in the “free” chats though to get people to want to have a private (paid) live video chat. Many top psychics earn well over 5k per month on this site, so it can be very lucrative.
Type: Chat and phone
This is one of the most popular sites today and allows you to complete readings via phone or live chat. Commissions are a little low, but consistent and with a fantastic marketplace, you will get customers regularly. This one took about 2 weeks before I heard back from them. They will require a test reading, as well as for you to complete software set up and testing before you can start accepting customers.
3. Purple Ocean
Type: App – Live and Recorded Video Readings
This is an AWESOME tool! You don’t work at all from a computer, but instead your smartphone. You can make $4-$6 per 3 minute recorded reading (more if you make yourself available for readings within 1 hour of the order). BUT… if you do not complete even 1 reading on time, you will be blocked from accepting 1 hour orders for 1 week. This is important to know because MOST of your orders will be rush jobs. This takes about 1 week to get active as you must complete a test video reading prior to being an approved psychic with them.
After a few weeks of solid reading, you can request to provide Live Chat and Live Video readings on their Purple Garden app as well. You can also connect your Bitwine account for more traffic.
Type: Email, text, chat, phone
This one is always hiring, and has some cool features. You can complete email readings, dream analysis readings, text, chat, and calls. You are provided a company email address, and will have to complete a test reading, as well as training call where you will be required to watch a video and set up all the software programs needed to work for them. Given the high level of technical requirement needed (i.e. you have to have 4 software programs open at once when working), their commissions are low (only 20%) and you do not get to set your own prices. This comes out to being about $5 an hour when working consistently. Not great, but if you are in a bind and need cash quick, or just want to test your abilities and see if Psychic reading is for you, its a good place to start.
Type: Live video chat, sell images and sessions
This is a newer platform and has some kinks to work out. They seem to have great reviews on facebook and provide good customer services, but I don’t have a lot of experience with them as I’m not a huge fan of live video readings in chat rooms. Commission is a little better, but again, will require a test reading before you are approved to start.
Type: Phone, chat, message, text, skype
This is a solid site with a killer marketplace, and I’ve always had consistent clients. You can set your own prices, which is awesome too. The money here is made through phone readings. I’ve personally found that message and text readings, while popular, really don’t yield much money, maybe a few cents to a dollar per reading. This comes out to a few bucks an hour. Phone readings, which can be lucrative at 2.99 – 10.99 per minute on average, can certainly bring in much more of the higher ticket customers after you have established yourself. I recommend starting with .99 per minute or 1.99 per minute and increase after a month or so when you have reviews built up.
Type: Phone and text
I really love this one because it has been my highest earning platform, making me well over $3 per MINUTE (you can do that math on that one… 10 minutes = $30, which isn’t bad at all) This one takes a bit to get set up, having to wait on review processes to complete on your profile and complete your test reading, but once you are up and going you can set your own prices for text and phone readings. What I really love is that their messaging/texting system you can complete on a computer or smartphone. I love that I can work basically anytime, anywhere, and control my availability from my smartphone. I’ve gone on vacation, and while everyone took an afternoon nap, I worked for an hour and made about $100. You can work as often as you wish, and the customer service/tech support is FAST.
Bitwine, while being slightly out of date in terms of their software and the fact they only work on a PC (sorry Mac users), they are pretty consistent with customers. They are a sister site to the Purple Ocean app, so you will see them advertising for Purple Garden and Purple Ocean all over the place. I really love that they have a forum for psychics to connect and help each other, but I really am not a fan of their system itself. I don’t use it often, but when I’m working on my PC, I make myself available and get a few readings in. You are paid instantly in your paypal, but will be required to pay Bitwine’s commission as an invoice at the end of the month.
