You can also put your CV on these platforms for people looking for subtitle writers to find you. Before you place your details on a job-seeking website, research online what other freelancers are charging. This will give you an idea of what you should charge. Quote rates that are fair and competitive.  

If you know more than one language, you can even look at translating the video content and writing subtitles in another language upon the request of the client. Also, many clients look for freelancers to transcribe content from videos in a well-written and detailed manner. If you are interested in that, include it in your resume.

Take Part In Paid Psychological Studies

Remember, not all psychological studies include the viewing of videos. So, before you volunteer for a study, ensure that looking, evaluating, and writing about videos are part of the study. You must also ensure that the type of study is something you will feel comfortable with.

Many organizations and universities are asking for volunteers but generally small amounts are paid for your time. Some institutions offer gift cards. It is a little bit stranger than other video-viewing ways of making money, but it can be very interesting and you will make some money.
