Some of Northcliffe's local people sites are offering contributors cash for 50-word "mini-reviews" or "snippets" about local shops, restaurants and businesses - at a rate of £50 for 35 items.
For example the Hove People site says:
"If you’re clued up on what makes Hove a great place to eat, shop, relax or even exercise, and would like a bit of extra New Year cash, Hove People wants to hear from you.
"We’re offering £50 for 35 snippets about the best independent businesses serving your community. Any business counts as long as it’s not part of a big chain.
"All you need to do is tell us in about 50 words what you like about your favourite independent businesses and why people should use them."
