Get paid $5 per call as a Telephone Mystery Shopper
by Alicia Washington

Would you like to earn $5 per call?  Is there a legitimate company that will pay you to do this?  Yes there is.  The name of the company is called Call Center QA and they are always hiring telephone mystery shoppers to work from home.  What does a telephone mystery shopper do and how can you apply online will be discussed in this article.

What is a telephone mystery shopper?

A telephone mystery shopper evaluates call centers, various business and companies through inquiries, questions and or surveys and inputs that information online.  Companies value this kind of service because it helps them to improve their customer service. Call Center QA is one of those companies that will pay you to do this from home.

How long will the calls last?

The calls will last from 6-10 minutes each and are very easy to complete.  You will also have to fill out a brief feedback form along with your calls that will only take a few minutes.

Do I need any special skills to be a telephone mystery shopper?

No.  You are not required to have any previous experience as a telephone mystery shopper but most companies - including Call Center QA, looks for individuals with excellent phone and listening skills and good writing skills.  You are required to be at least 18 years of age.   

What if I am disabled or never worked from home?

This job would be perfect for you because it is easy and can even help you to get your foot into the door of other work at home companies that may require experience in customer service or in a call center background.  If you enjoy talking on the phone, you will like this job.  

What if I don't like talking on the phone?

Call Center QA also has online mystery shops that you can do from home.  They also only take a few minutes to complete and pays $2 per shop.

How much can I expect to earn?

It really depends on how much work they have available.  They dictate how much work is needed and if and when quotas are met. You will earn $5 per call and $2 per online mystery shop.  It also depends on how many calls and or shops you complete in the day/week/etc.  I would not rely on this for full time income just extra income or second income.   

When will I get paid?

You will get paid within 7 business day not calendar days of each completed mystery shop call or online mystery shop.

How do I apply online?

You simply go to their Mystery Shopper Registration Form here and fill out all of your information.  You will receive an email shortly thereafter and be invited to complete a test call.  After you have completed those steps, you will hear back from the company in a day or two and possibly be invited to work.

What if I am already signed up and have no work?

Here are a couple of explanations as well as solutions to this problem that I found on Call Center QA's Facebook page as well as a couple of my own.  

  1. Send an email to Call Center QA at and let them know that you would like to complete more calls.
  2. If they have met quotas on certain shops, they will not be able to assign any new calls because of the limit set by the client.
  3. Some shops may require you to be a homeowner or live in a specific location or state.      
  4. Make sure that you complete your calls and online mystery shops as soon as you can to improve your response rate.  If you 2-3 weeks to turn in your work, you will get less calls.
  5. Sign up with other mystery shopping companies like Pierce Eislen (when they are hiring), BestMarkTelexpertise, Intelichek and work from home jobs.  Call Center QA does not prevent you from contracting with multiple companies.
  6. Refer your friends.  Even if you don't get to complete a shop yourself you can still refer your friends and earn money when they do. 

If you are looking for a way to earn extra income from home doing mystery shopping, apply to Call Center QA today!  Don't forget to select as many mystery shopping categories that you may interested in as possible.  The more you select, the more calls and online mystery shops you may get to complete which means more money for you.  Here are my payment proofs below.

Work at home Jobs for Felons
by Alicia Washington

One of the questions that I get asked the most is, "Are there any work at home jobs for felons?"  Although many companies require that you submit a background check in order to even be considered as a possible candidate to work for them, you may be surprised to know that a lot of companies do not have this stipulation at all. Why? Because that issue or occurrence(s) has nothing to do with your job duties or job performance.  

If your job required you to handle sensitive information from their clients/customers in the form of credit card numbers, collecting payments over the phone or something of this nature, then a background check may be necessary.  Some companies may even require their applicants to complete a credit and background check but fortunately there are a lot of companies that don't.

So if you are a person that desires to work from home but are not too sure which companies you can apply to or what you can do, hopefully this list of work at home employers will give you some realistic job leads and options for you to be able to work from home. Make sure that you check the weekly job section and Friday Freebie pages of this site for more opportunities.

My name is Rosie and I wanted to some feedback and let you know how pleased I am with Survey Savvy.  I’m currently enrolled in a Savvy Connect project where I receive $30.00 quarterly incentives for having Savvy Connect installed to my PC, phone and tablet which helps me pay for my cell phone bill and purchase extra items along the way.  I’m also enrolled in Project Firestone and Project Coronado. When these projects complete at the end of the month I will be receiving an additional $175.  I’m currently a student and the extra money does help!  I have recommended Savvy Connect to my schoolmates and friends.  I'm so pleased with Savvy Connect I will participate in all projects if allowed. 

Hello my name is Yvette and I’m a single parent who works 6 days a week and money is pretty tight around here.  I heard about Savvy Connect through my sister who was always praising how reliable it was and how she always received her incentives on time, so I decided to check it out about a year ago.  I was so pleased with the simple requirements and reasonable requirements.   I decided to enroll in my very first Project Alpine and my incentive was $40.00.  I did exactly what was instructed and received my incentive as promised.  I was sent invites to participate in other projects with detailed instructions on how to participate and what devices had to be installed.  I have participated in 4 projects and I’m currently enrolled in Project Coronado.  This project pays $100 for remaining active with Savvy Connect for 90 days and completing a few short follow up surveys.  This extra cash certainly helps a single mother living paycheck to paycheck.  I would definitely recommend Savvy Connect to my family and friends as well as my co workers.

Hello my name is Kim and I am a Retired Registered Nurse.  My sister-in-law recommended me to Savvy Connect when I came to her for help with my new Smartphone.  She insisted that I try out Savvy Connect because not only will I be able to make extra cash, but I will also gain knowledge with modern day technology. I quickly became more familiar with how to use my device as time went on.  I learned how download multiple applications including Savvy Connect, while making almost $200 in the past 4 months.  I am now a veteran member of Savvy Connect with many more years to come.

How do I get started with Survey Savvy?

How to Make Money on Tumblr and more with Infolinks
by Alicia Washington

If you have a Tumblr account or blog/website or plan to do so in the near future and would like to earn money, then you will definitely want to give Infolinks a try.  It is very easy to incorporate, free and will also help to engage your visitors when they come to your site for the latest news.  Here are some reasons why I recommend and use Infolinks on my own Tumblr account, blogs and website(s) and why you should too.

What is Infolinks?

Infolinks is a site that helps publishers or Tumblr users as well as blog and website owners monetize their site by incorporating pre-scripted codes that will display content in the form of ads and highlighted text. It can also be used as an alternative or addition to Google Adsense.  The approval process is a not as restrictive as Google Adsense and can be displayed on all of your sites as long as they are approved.

How does Infolinks work?

Once you are approved to display ads on your site(s), you will embed the code or use a plugin that will complete this step for you to show active ads from various Infolinks partners for a commission.  Your earnings are based on views and clicks.

How and When Will I get Paid?

Infolinks pays you every month that you reach your payment threshold which is $50 or $100 if you opt for Western Union or Bank Wire Transfer.  They send out payment for the previous month's earnings so if you earn $55 in April, you will get a $55 commission check or payment from Infolinks in May.  They have a few payment options for you to choose from listed below.

  • PayPal
  • eCheck
  • ACH (only for US accounts)
  • Western Union
  • Bank Wire
  • Payoneer

Why I recommend using Infolinks to make extra money?

I love Infolinks because it only takes 1 minute to get the ads set up on your Tumblr account or site(s).  It is easy to sign up, available worldwide, offers several payment options, has various ad options including inTag, inFold, inText and more.  You are also not required to have a certain amount of page views on your site.  This means that anybody can use Infolinks regardless of how big or small their audience is can make money with Infolinks.  There are also no hidden commitments which gives you the option to cease using their ads, if you so desire but why would you when you have the potential to earn hundreds or more with Infolinks.

If you haven't signed up yet for Infolinks yet, please do so here and get started making money from your Tumblr account, blog and website today!

Popular Work at home Videos
by Alicia Washington

I have several video tutorials that explain and show you how to sign up with, perform or complete a job, task or gig from home.  Some of the videos that I have recorded have generated a lot of interest. One of the videos in particular is the one I made was regarding a company called Music XRay.  This site will pay you to listen to songs for 30 seconds only and you will get $.10 for every song you listen to.  I calculated this amount on an hourly basis if you were to have songs consistently in your fan match inbox to reveal that you can earn $12 per hour listening to music online.  This video continues to generate a lot of conversation online today.  

This video was published on my other channel called "WorkersonBoard Insiders".  Another video I created about how Non-phone work at home jobs that will pay you $13-$15 over 2 years ago still receives a lot of interest and disbelief for those who are unfamiliar with these legitimate opportunities.  You can check out and watch some of the more popular work at home videos if you prefer receiving your content in video form.  Don't forget to subscribe for the latest work at home updates!   

Humanatic Interview with Questions and Answers
by Alicia Washington

I recently contacted Humanatic with some of the more popular questions that I have been asked and have wondered about myself as well.  For those who may not know, Humanatic is a non-phone work at home job that does not require a background check, special skills or experience to simply listen to calls from your computer and sort them accurately into categories.  They pay weekly as long as you have $10 in your account via Paypal.  

The only thing you will need to work for this legitimate company is a Paypal account and an email address.  Your training will be done online and only takes just a few minutes.  It is an easy work at home job but the pay is fairly low, so I contacted them to address these and other concerns and here are the responses I received.

1.  How long does it take to hear back from Humanatic after you have applied?                                             

 Applications are generally processed within 24-48 hours after they have been submitted, with the exception of the weekend. Applications submitted over the weekend will be processed on a first come first serve basis starting Monday.

2.  What can you do if you are having difficulty signing up to work for Humanatic?                                                    

Answer:  If an applicant is finding that they cannot proceed with their application this could be a few things. Their Paypal address may not be verified.  Humanatic requires a verified PayPal address in order to sign-up.  The Paypal address may be associated with another account that is already in the Humanatic database.  Humanatic will not accept duplicate application information.  Their name may already be taken.  Again, Humanatic won't accept duplicate information.  A variation of their name should be tried.  The applicant may have applied with the same information in the past and been denied.

3.  Is there anything that can be done to avoid being penalized for inaccurately reviewing calls?

 It is encouraged that all reviewers thoroughly read and refer back to the overviews and announcements.  The overviews will include detailed instructions as well as examples, and the announcements include important information about updates, tips, and requirements for reviewers and their accounts.  In addition, reviewers can access their Detailed Earnings History.  This spreadsheet will provide a detailed history of each call that has been reviewed, every earning, and any penalty that has been applied.

If a reviewer notices that they seem to be getting penalized dominantly in one or two categories more than others, they are welcomed to email regarding those categories.  We can then perform an audit on their reviews for those categories and provide feedback to help them with future reviews.                                                        

We also provide a Call Viewer tool where reviewers can plug a call identification number in order to see the outcome of a previous review.  By doing this, they are provided with the opportunity to see their answer versus the data confirmed by the audit.  The dispute then processes into dispute queue that is handled by our in-house auditors on a first come first serve basis.

4.  When is the busiest time for call volume?               

 Because our clients are all over, call volume will continuously fluctuate.  However, our busiest hours seem to be from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM EST, Monday-Saturday. 

5.  Does Humanatic promote their call reviewers?       

 When needed, our most advanced and accurate reviewers are invited to become auditors.  The status of an auditor requires that a reviewer is active in all of our available categories, with a minimum of 100 reviews in each category, and an accuracy rating of 95-100% in each.  This, however, is not a guarantee to those that have the most advanced, most accurate accounts.  Auditors are only added on an as-needed basis.  Those accounts that become eligible will be held in reserve, to be added if/when the time comes.

6.  Will Humanatic ever offer pay increases?               

 Each category pays an amount that is for the most part unchanging.  The amount will fluctuate slightly based on supply and demand of calls in a particular category, but they will always remain in the same general range.  The categories currently pay between 0.6$and 20$per correct review.  When reviewers show steady accuracy they are promoted to the more advanced, higher paying categories, with the opportunity to become active in all of our categories that are currently available.

7.  Can multiple people work from Humanatic in the same household?                                                          

 Our system allows for multiple people to work from the same IP address, as long as this is not abused.  The accounts will need to have individual PayPal addresses though.

8.  Do you know of any other work at home companies that are similar to Humanatic?

 At this time, we are not aware of any other companies providing this same opportunity.

9.  Is Humanatic open to those outside the US?

 We accept and encourage applicants worldwide.

10.  Can teens work for Humanatic?

 Anyone can apply for a Humanatic account as long as they have a verified PayPal address.

Authors, Share Your Book with Millions of Readers

Get paid to publish your books, music, and films!
By Alicia Washington

Create Space, an Amazon company is a free service that you can use to create and self-publish your books, music, films, etc. to be distributed and sold online.  Whether you are an author, musician, or filmmaker you can use Create Space to reach millions of potential customers.  I have used them to get a couple of my books published and I highly recommend it because it is easy and free.  In fact, it is one of the easiest ways to get your content published and sold on Amazon, Create Space, and other distribution channels.   If you want like to or have ever thought about writing your own book(s) or creating and selling your own music, or even making your own DVDs this company will help make it possible for your creative work to come to light.

How it works?

You simply go to Create Space and sign up for a free account with your email address and choose which media format you would like to create.  Whether it is in the form of a book, DVDs, CDs, video downloads, or MP3s.  You create the content and Create Space will help you publish it.

For example, say that you would like to publish a printed book on Create Space, all you have to do is to upload your file on Create Space and they will lead you every step of the way from the beginning of choosing a title for your book, to selecting a cover, picking the design, and even deciding where you would like your book or books to be sold.  Because it is an Amazon company, you can even create a Kindle ebook and sell it on Amazon for free!

There are step by step tutorials to guide you through the whole process in addition to Create Spaces 24/7 member support team. They have all the tools for you to create your entire book within a day.  This includes being able to proofread your book's interior online before you distribute it.

Are all the services on Create Space free?

Yes.  There is an option for you to pay for additional services but this is not required or necessary for you to get your content published, unless you just want to.

How will Create Space benefit me?

Not only will it help you to reach a massive amount of people because your content will be available to a worldwide audience but it will help your books to be ready and available quickly, instead of waiting to get your books published the traditional way.  
Where will your books, music, and other content be sold?

It will be sold on Amazon and in Kindle format.  
Note:  You can choose the Expanded Distribution channel and have your books sold in bookstores, online retailers, libraries, academic institutions, Amazon Europe, your own e-store as well as Create Space direct.  There is a one time cost of $25 to enroll in the Expanded Distribution Channels but the benefit is that you will be able to reach many more readers, listeners, and viewers of your content.

When will I get paid?

You will receive your royalty check or have it directly deposited into your bank account once a month for the books, music, films, etc. that you have sold through Create Space as long as you have sold $10 in sales for that month.  If not, it will roll over until you reach your threshold and then your payment will be sent.

How much will I make?

It depends upon how much you decide to sell your content for.
You can earn 70% royalties on the sale of each book, music, film, DVD, etc.  You will continue to earn this income every single time your book(s) or other content generates a sale.  There is no cap to how much you can earn for your content.  Lifetime earnings.

Any other perks?

There is a community of authors, filmmakers, and musicians on Create Space that you can connect with and learn from there. You can even check the sales of your content on Create Space every day to see where and when your books are selling.
You can order proofs of your completed content.
You can self publish as many items as you wish on Create Space.
Try it out for yourself and publish your own content for free!

Good Shoppers Needed to work for InteliChek
by an InteliChek recruiter

Would you like to work from home?  Do you want to work when you want to?  Are you looking to work 20-30-40 hours a week on your own schedule?  Well this opportunity might be for you.  All you need is:  

  • computer
  • high speed Internet connection
  • willingness to work for what you get paid
InteliChek is a market research company specializing in helping our clients understand their competition.  We do this by calling businesses across the US and gathering information that our clients would like to know.  Some of the things we have been asked to gather for our clients are the cost of oil changes, the prices of specific products, and part and even the price of specific windows and lumber.

If you want to learn more, go through this site to learn more about us and what we do and if you like what you read and apply.  We are always looking for great people that want to work on their own terms, their own schedule and the amount they want to earn.  It is not easy work, but it gives you the flexibility to work from home and earn money.

What is an InteliChek shopper?

Our shoppers help us gather information that our clients need and want across the country.  We are looking for well spoken people that speak English and even Spanish for some of our special assignments.  

What does an InteliChek shopper do?

You will be asked to call businesses and ask for very specific items like a set of tires that fit a 2005 Dodge minivan.  We give you all the specifics and even tell you what size tires you are looking for and the tire manufacturer we would like a quote on.  You enter the price for the set of tires in the system and any specifics like if mounting and balancing is included in the price.  That's it!  After you gather a number of prices we request we pay for the amount of prices you gather.

InteliChek Shopper

Shoppers are people that call businesses for quotes on services and products and parts.  The more professional you are, the faster you are, the more money you make per hour, per day, per week. Once again, it is not easy work, you have to make the phone calls, you have to gather the prices and we pay you for the tasks you complete.

Cheating is not tolerated

Our shoppers think we have a really good thing going and we do not want to jeopardize what we have and we will not tolerate any false prices or information.  We have certain fail safes in place and we catch anyone falsifying any information we will conduct an investigation and if it proves out to be the case you cheated we will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law for everyone that works with us.  Cheating will not be tolerated!

What are the requirements?

You will need a computer, high speed Internet, unlimited phone calling plan and be fluent in English.  We also require that you are 18 + years old and have a mailing address.  You must be authorized to work in the United States and have a bank account in your name for payment.

How much can you make?

Shoppers are paid by the task and prices they gather.  These tasks range from $.30 to $1.90 and are based on the complexity of the request.  It is not uncommon for our shoppers to make $50 up to $100 per day and we have seen much more.  It really depends on the amount of time you are willing to put into this opportunity and the more professional and efficient you are with every phone call, the more you make.  

How much do I have to work?

We are looking for people to spend a minimum of 20 hours a week.  From our past experience we find that it takes us as much time to train an individual the works 5 hours a week as it does to train an individual that works 40 hours a week.  That is why we are looking for people that want to work a minimum of 20 hours a week.  

Do you train me?

Yes, we not only train you on how to do this most efficiently, but also on particular client jobs and requests.  Currently there are no formal tests or quizzes because we have found that our shoppers combined with their own common senses can handle all our clients needs.  If future assignments require much more in-depth knowledge of our clients needs there might be more formal training and testing in order to work on certain client programs.  

How much work can I get in a week?

You can have as much work as you want.  Our system enables you to pull as many tasks out of the system you can accurately complete.  As long as we have work, you can work as much as you would like.  

What type of schedule do I have to keep?

Well that is up to you.  If you can only work for us from 8 am to noon, that is fine, and that would allow you to hit your 20 hours per week.  If you wanted to work weekends or at evenings that is fine as well.  This opportunity allows you to keep your schedule. We know things come up from time to time and all we ask is that you input your availability in the system.  So, if you know you are taking a vacation or have a hectic first week back at school week for your kids, just let us know.

Why do we have to let you know that I am going to be on vacation?

Well like many businesses, we promise our clients certain due dates.  If you are a great shopper and we count on you to return a certain amount of tasks per week, we can compensate for your absence if we know it upfront for any looming deadline we might have.  We consider it common courtesy so we can plan our deliverable appropriately.  We have an easy to use availability calendar that is specific to you and your immediate producer.  

What is a Producer?

A producer is a person that at one-time was a shopper and has now been promoted to handling certain jobs for clients.  A producer makes sure you have as many tasks as you want as well as oversees your accuracy and timeliness per task.  Your producer is your friend but is also responsible for delivering a great product to our clients on time.  

Can I become a Producer?

Yes you can.  It is not a quick or easy route to becoming a producer, but all of our producers were great shoppers at one time.  It takes dedication and performance to be recognized to be considered to become a producer.  

Can I make this my full time job?

As long as we have client jobs and you have the dedication to work the amount you need weekly and monthly, yes it can be a full time job?  Many of our shoppers rely on our work for their sole source of income and we are proud that we can offer that.

Do you take taxes out of my pay?

No, since you work whenever you want and not regular hours, we consider you a contract employee.  You will receive all of your payments without taxes taken out.  At the end of the year if you earn over $600 in a calendar year, you will receive a 1099 from us. You are responsible for your own taxes for everything you earn on our 1099.

When can I start?

You can start as soon as you satisfactorily do a few things for us. We first need you to fill out a few forms within our site and after an acceptable telephone interview you will begin.

Does everyone that applies get an opportunity?

No, depending on your submission and telephone interview we will determine whether you are right for us and this opportunity.

Shopper comments:

Really like this opportunity because I can work when I want.
Have been doing this for over three years and it has been a great way to earn money at home and still raise kids and family. Housewife.

If you would be interested in working from home as a shopper for InteliCheck, please apply online at their official website here.

How to Make Money on Fiverr

When posting on Fiverr, you’re actually competing for business against every other post. Therefore, you should somehow try to make your ad stand out to attract a continuous stream of buyers. The key to making decent money on Fiverr is to stand out! 

Let’s have a closer look at few tips on how to make money on Fiverr: 

* Videos can help in enticing potential buyers as they help in improving the validity of your offer. You can use high quality videos to convince buyers about the quality of your service. This is also the way to separate your offer from thousands of other offers.

* You should add a great title because this is the first thing your potential buyers will see when they are considering your service. Aside from being concise, it should state the most essential points. Your title should have at least two tags that you intend to use in your ad. 

* An enticing description is required to convince your customers to purchase your service. This description is seen by all those who are interested enough in your picture and title to look even more into your gig. Try to use this description to somehow finalize the sale and ensure a buy. Double check your description for grammar and spelling errors. 

* A customized picture is the best insight to your capabilities especially when you are selling some item or plan to do something artistic. A picture is worth thousand words and often gets more attention than a mere description.

* Reviews can make your ad stand out just a little bit more. Great ads right there on your gig will definitely leave your viewers awestruck and they will be unable to avoid buying your enticing service. 

* It’s best to offer multiple services on Fiverr. This will get you a much better response than putting all your eggs in one basket because this often leads to poor sales.

* You should use tags to your advantage. Tags are how people get interested in your service and ultimately find it. So by choosing poor ones or not using enough you are reducing the number of people who might be interested in your service.

* Don’t go for the same niche as everyone else because this increases your competition and reduces sales.

So, are you ready to make money on Fiverr?  Applying these tips will help you to do so.  Go to their official website to get started today!

Independent Contractor (IC) or Employee

A lot of times when you are looking for a work at home job, you will see either Independent Contractor (IC) or Employee.  How do you know which one is for you?  Well that depends on what you are looking for.

Are you looking for a job that is going to allow you to work at home that provides a set schedule, pays benefits, takes taxes out and usually has vacation and sick days.  If so, then you will want to work as an employee for a company.  These positions usually provides the same benefits that a regular brick and mortar job does.  

Or are you looking for more flexibility in your schedule?  The ability to work days, afternoons and evenings to have a more balanced life.  This will allow you to get up and work for a couple of hours and get the kids off to school.  You will be able to work more hours, help the kids with homework, prepare dinner and put them to bed at night.  If this is more desirable for you, then an independent contractor position might be more for you.  These positions usually are pay per talk time although there are some that pay by the hour.  They allow you the flexibility to choose your own schedule.  Companies that hire independent contractors to work from home usually require you to pay for your own background and possibly a credit check.  If they require a credit check, it may be non-refundable if you fail.  You can expect to pay anywhere from $10.95 up to $45 for one depending on whether it was a background or credit check.  Perfect credit is not a requirement in order to pass the credit check.  You will be responsible for paying your own taxes at the end of the year as an independent contractor.  

There are pros and cons to both.  If you need a steady paycheck and benefits then you might want to look at companies that will hire you as an employee.  If you need a more flexible schedule then an independent contractor might be a better fit.

There are some companies that might offer you both, meaning an employee position that allows you to set your own schedule or an independent contractor that pays by the hour.  Whatever you decide, hopefully this article distinguishes the difference between an employee and an independent contractor.  Happy work at home.

Most companies will pay you for any videos that you create, whether they are instructional, funny, for entertainment purposes only, educational, and so forth.  As long as it is original and you own the rights to publish it, you can do so.

Is there a limit to how many I can upload?

No.  You can upload as many as you want to.  If you are thinking of using a revenue sharing site like YouTube, I would recommend that you upload your videos on a regular basis in order to generate interest for your channel as well as to maximize or increase your earnings. 

How much will I earn?

If you are using a company that will pay you upfront for your videos like, you will be paid $400 upfront for every video that you upload and is accepted by them.  If you are using a revenue sharing site, your earnings will not remain the same.  They may initially start at just a few cents to a few dollars a month to hundreds of dollars or even more.  This figure may also depend upon how many views your videos generate, number of subscribers, and so forth.  You will not know for sure exactly how much you will earn until you start uploading them.  When I first started, I was interested in bringing awareness to the
"Work at home Job" misconception but eventually I started earning money for my videos.  To read my YouTube story, click here.  

Do I have to upload my videos on YouTube to earn money?

No.  There are several other companies that you can use to earn money for your videos.  YouTube is just one of the more popular video sharing sites on the Internet today.

Do my videos have to be professional?

They do not have to be professional but you do want to make sure that they are of good quality.  The lighting and sound of your video should be sufficient.  You do not necessarily have to invest in expensive camera equipment to do this, you can improve the quality of your videos with Vimeo and feel confident about every video you upload and submit online. 

Are there any restrictions?

You will need to make sure that the content you share is yours or that you have permission from the owner to use it in your videos. You also want to make sure that you do not use any music, unless you have permission from the artist or you want to use it but you do not plan on monetizing your videos.  YouTube in particular has restrictions on using other people's content (music, etc.) in your videos.

by Alicia Washington

Would you like to make passive income from home?  For those who don't know, passive income is a defined as income that you receive or generate on a regular basis with little effort.  You don't necessarily need to have a blog or website to make passive income from home.  How is this possible?  What is required and how much will I earn will all be answered in this article.  

Writing Articles

Writing articles is a great way to earn passive income from home. You do not need any experience to start writing and this can be done in your spare time at your own pace and schedule.  In order to generate the most income you will need to write quality articles on topics that you are either familiar with or passionate about. You will want to write for companies that pay residual earnings for the lifetime of your article.  For example Hubpages, Squidoo, and other residual writing companies will pay you every month for articles that you write or have written.  You can earn a few dollars up to hundreds or more every month.


Writing ebooks is a great way to earn passive income from home. It may only take you a few days, a few weeks, or even a few hours to write a book and upload it to Amazon and earn passive income every month, as long as they sell.  Unlimited earnings.


You can start your own blog and earn passive income simply by creating content there.  You can utilize some companies like Google Adsense to earn money from your traffic.  

Sponsored Tweets

Get paid to tweet out messages in the form of sponsored ads to your followers.  You will need at least 50 followers to get started but it is a great way to earn money from your social media traffic. The pay is per tweet.  You can make a few cents or hundreds or more per tweet depending upon how influential you are. 


Companies and individuals may seek you out to advertise on your blog, website, and elsewhere.  You can set up fees and rates to earn passive income.  (In order to be competitive, try not to over charge).  Check your competitors rates and stay in the same ballpark or even lower, especially when you are first starting out.

Design Tshirts

Cafe Press, Zazzle, Spreadshirt and other companies will allow you to make your own designs and sell them on your own online store for passive income.  You could also make designs for others to use on their tshirts.  If your designs are really popular you might be able to earn pretty good income.


Upload your original videos to YouTube for passive income.  You can monetize them and get paid when you have earned $100.  If your videos are very popular and get a lot of views, there is no limit to how much you can earn here.  You can also take your videos and put them on DVDs and sell them.

Promote Products

You can promote well known products from companies and advertisers on your blog, website, on Facebook, Twitter, and anywhere you have an audience.  Some companies may prefer that you have a blog.  You will have to check with each one to see for sure.  Some Companies that you can sign up with to be a publisher and do this are:  Shareasale, Panthera Network, Commission Junction, etc.

Job Rolls

Make passive income with sites like Indeed, DoNanza, and Careerjet and post jobs on your site for passive income.

Flipping Websites  

Just like some people flip houses, you can flip websites also.  You can get a free blog and purchase a domain name for $10 a year from blogger and build up traffic to that blog and sell it for hundreds or even thousands of dollars.  You could also buy used blogs or websites and revamp them to resell for profit.

Sell blog posts

Yes, you can sell your blog posts and put them in an ebook or file for others to download for a fee.

Social Media

I already talked about Sponsored Tweets and how you can use this to earn passive income but there are other ways you can earn money from your social media traffic.  Here are some other companies that you can try.
  • Soci Buzz - Get paid to post messages from advertisers on twitter, Facebook, make videos, and more.  Pay per click.
  • MyLikes - Similar to Soci Buzz.  They operate in the same manner.
  • Pinbooster - Get paid to pin items to your Pinterest board.
  • Staree - Get paid to post photos and videos on this site.


Earn passive income from your subscribers to your newsletter by recommending items or selling your own products.  You can try companies like iContact for less than $10 a month, Constant Contact for free for the first 60 days or Mail Chimp.


You can earn passive income by getting others to sell your products and paying them a certain rate.  Maybe you could offer them $5 commission fee for every book or item of yours that they sell for you.

Some would say that trying to make passive income from home is not as easy as it sounds.  It will take some work to build up your traffic, if you are just starting but when you do, you can utilize these and other methods to earn passive income at home.

3 Ways to Make More Money on Postloop

By Alicia Washington

Postloop is a legitimate website that will pay you to post on forums.  If you already participate on forums online, you are no doubt quite familiar with this concept.  You simply respond to discussions online on subjects that interest you.  You can also start discussions as well.    

If you have already signed up with Postloop, you may be wondering how I can earn more money per hour as a web content writer for Postloop.  I have 3 simple things you can do to increase your earnings on Postloop.  Here are some strategies you can start using today.

1.  Write quality content.  You have probably heard this before several times, but when it comes to earning more money on Postloop it is a very important factor because it will directly affect your rating or score that you receive.  The highest rating is a 5 and you want to get as close as you can to reaching that score, if possible.

How can this be achieved?  Make sure that your responses contain at least 3 sentences.  You will need to check your grammar, spelling, and sentence structure.  To make it simple, I would suggest that you just review your answer and read it to yourself a couple of times before you post it online.  Does it sound okay?  Is everything spelled correctly?  Make sure you do this before every post.  This will improve your score greatly.

2.  Choose forums that offer bonuses.  After you are approved to post on Postloop, scroll down to pick from the various forums and choose those that offer bonuses.  It will be on the right hand corner of your screen.  Check your own rating score on your dashboard before you do this to make sure that you have a high enough rating to post on those forums that offer bonuses, otherwise you may not get credit for it.

3.  Tell your friends.  Refer anyone you can think of that would like to earn extra money posting on forums at Postloop online.  Try to find ones who would really be interested in doing this because if they are not active on Postloop, it will not benefit you.  This will also help you to increase your earnings.  

Here are some stats from Postloop that shows you how much you can earn in bonuses.  These bonuses points are based on your rating score.

Thank you for coming to visit my website.  I am currently looking for guest bloggers to contribute content to be published online.   If you have any tips, advice, success, knowledge or experience working from home I would love to hear from you.  I need articles on this subject or related to working from home.  If you are interested in writing for for me, I will attribute a link to your blog, website, etc. and post your article here for everyone to read.  Make sure that you put "articles" or "contribute articles" in the subject line of your email.  Please contact me by clicking here.  

Things you need to work from home

As you already may know working from home is an alternative that is gaining in popularity over the last few years.  Many companies are deciding to allow their employees to take advantage of this opportunity and give them the option to work from their home office.  There are many benefits of working right from your own computer.  You don't have to fight through traffic to get to work, you can save money by fixing your own lunch, keep the money that you would normally spend on gas and spend it on whatever you want to, or simply save it, you can have more time to spend with your family, and the list goes on and on.  Of course, it is important to establish limits.  Just because you don't work outside the home does not mean that you do not work.  You are still working and your family will need to understand that there will be times that you may not be available because you will have to keep to a certain schedule, depending upon which company you work for.  If you work at home job is flexible and you have the option to work and log in whenever you want, you may able to divide your time up accordingly depending upon your families needs. 

For many people working from home is idea and practical especially in this economy today.  But what do you really need to be able to work from home.  I will go over a basic checklist of some items that you may need to work from home.  If you don't have some of the things that I mentioned, as long as you have access to them it will be sufficient.

1.  Computer - In order for you to be able to work from home, having a computer or access to one is essential.  You will need it to be able to log in to work and complete your assignments.  Some companies prefer that you have an updated operating system.  You will have to check the requirements for each company that you want to work for.

2.  Email - If you don't already have an email account, you will need to get one.  This will be a way for the company to communicate with you back and forth.  Not just regarding your application but for other reasons related to your job.

3.  Phone - Having a phone is necessary, especially if your job will entail you talking to customers on the phone.  Some jobs may require for you to have a landline phone instead of a VOIP or cellphone.  If you acquire a job working from home in customer service, sales, or other area where you will be talking to customers on the phone, you will probably need to have long distance service.

4.  Fax Machine/Printer - If you are an independent contractor, the company you work for will send you documents that you need to sign as well as tax forms.  You will need to print these off and keep them in your personal records signed and dated.  If you are requested to sign the completed forms and send them back to company, you will need to have a fax machine or access to one.  It makes it convenient to fax documents back to them in a timely fashion and you therefore will not have to make a copy, if you don't have a fax machine.  If you are sent documents, information, or terms and conditions of employment, you will need to print these papers and put them in your personal records.  You can refer back to these when you need to.

5.  Paypal - This is one of the most convenient ways for companies to pay for you for your work online.  Paypal is a trusted and reliable resource that is available to transfer funds to and from your account.  You will be notified by email when you have received a payment from paypal.  Form there you can log into your account to transfer them to your bank account, receive a check or use it to make purchases online.  Most companies use this method of payment.  Others may use a check, moneybrookers, or whatever option of payment that you prefer and use.

6.  Quiet Place - Last but not least is to have a quiet, comfortable place for you to complete your tasks.  Make sure that it is not too comfortable, so that you can stay awake and alert.  Have a place set aside in your home that has limited access and traffic from others in the home.  This will help to ensure that your environment is conducive to working from home.  It will help you to concentrate and focus so that you can be productive when you sign on to work from home.

Get Paid to Record Your Voice from Home
by Alicia Washington

Did you know that there are several companies that will pay you to record your voice from home?  Your own unique voice can be used to help you earn extra money right from your computer. Whether it is for commercials, movie trailers, audio books, local and national radio and television ads, and other ways, there are many opportunities out there for those who are interested in this fun and exciting line of work.  Voice overs are needed from people who speak all languages.  You can actually make a decent living as a voice over artist.  This article will explain what it takes to become a voice over artist, how much you can earn, and what companies will pay you to do this.

What is a voice over artist?

It is a person that uses their voice to express themselves. Because they are unable to rely on facial expressions and gestures, they use their voice to convey thoughts and emotions.

Do I have to be a professional voice over artist?

Absolutely not.  You just need a unique and clear speaking voice and be able to read scripts.  It would definitely be helpful if you practice reading aloud so that you can listen to your voice especially when you will be portraying different characters or personalities.  

What do I will need to get started?

Some basic items you need to do voice overs are a computer or at least access to one, a microphone, an up to date demo, and recording software that you can save on a mp3, wav, or other files.  You will need a quiet work environment to do this, so if you have small children it would be better to record when they are asleep or at school.  It is not necessary to have a home studio, although some may decide to invest in those in time.  If you are looking for a microphone here are a few good ones I recommend from Amazon 

How much can I earn?

Some voice over artists can earn from $50,000 up to $80,000 per year.  There are a few that earn a 6 figure salary recording their voice.  But many gigs can pay anywhere from $300 up to $600 or somewhere close to that range.

Companies that will pay me to record my voice from home

Here are a few companies that will pay you for your voice talent.

Able Innovations
Go Voices
Internet Jock (charges a commission fee)
Online Voices
Sun Spots Productions 
The Voice Realm
Voice Bunny

The Truth About Work at Home Jobs
by Alicia Washington

Is there really such a thing as the truth especially when it comes to the topic of working at home?  Yes there really is.  I will explain what it is and how you can find it.  

More and more people would love the opportunity to work from their home office.  It is practical, economical, even necessary for some.  But it seems as though this concept is more of a fantasy and not a reality.  

The fantasy:  I can work from computer in my pajamas and get paid without ever leaving my home.
The reality:    I can't even find work outside the home let alone work from home.
The fantasy:  I can be my own boss and work when I want on my own schedule.
The reality:    I don't even have any experience and wouldn't know where to begin.
The fantasy:  I could actually earn enough money at home and quit my day job.
The reality:    They only way I am going to earn money is to sell stuff on Ebay. 

Here is the truth.  Many people can earn money selling stuff on Ebay but you don't have to do this to work from home.  There are legitimate companies that are hiring right now in customer service, data entry, as a writer, blogger, in bookkeeping, accounting, transcription, and many areas and some of these jobs do not require for you to have any previous experience.  What makes me the expert, you may ask?  The truth is that I work from home myself and earn money doing some of the very things that I just mentioned in my spare time.  I'm not saying that you are going to be the next Mark Zuckerberg (one of the founders of Facebook) but I am saying that those fantasies can become realities and you can even earn a steady income online.  The book entitled "The Truth About Work at Home Jobs" not only tells you how you find legitimate work at home jobs but it even gives you a list of several companies that are hiring right now that anyone can apply for.  The truth about working from home is not so hard to find anymore.  You will enjoy this book and be pleasantly surprised to find just how many well-known companies are hiring people just like you and me to work online.  Please click here to download or purchase a copy of this book or go to Amazon to view a sample page of the book.

Fast Surveys

I have spent 30 minutes to almost an hour just completing one single survey online.  If you participate in the surveys offered at Paid Viewpoint, it will take you no longer than a minute to complete the entire survey.  At times they may offer you a survey that may last a little longer but you will know in advance and they will reward you with more earnings for completing these.  I have done these types of surveys before and they still never lasted more than 5 minutes.

Multiple Choice Answers

This is one of the things that I love about Paid Viewpoint is that your answer will always be in the form of a multiple choice answer.  You are not required to type in your answer.  You simply pick from the various choices underneath the question and proceed to the next question.  So simple and easy!

What you need to know before working from home for LiveOps
by Alicia Washington

I decided to include inform any and all who are thinking of working from home for LiveOps that there are some fees associated with this particular work from home company.  They do charge a $50 fee for a background and credit check before you can work from home for them.  You also do not get paid during your certification stage.  They also state that you could lose your certification if the terms are breached and have your Independent Contractor Agreement cancelled. 

Please make sure that you read their frequently asked questions or terms of service before you sign up for any work at home company.  If you do not agree with anything that is stated, you do not have to sign up to apply online.  

I wanted to share with you an experience by someone who recently applied for LiveOps and the outcome.  I have her permission to share her experience.  Please take note of the following:

I just want to let you know that I was invited to contract with liveops to take calls for their clients. The program I was going to participate in was AAA but unfortunately I had to cancel my contract after paying $50 for a background check because they did not make the requirements for their training programs clear. AAA certification training conflicted with my current work schedule and I was not made aware of it until after I paid for the background check and that is how it is with all of their programs. I think they have a great program but agent needs to be aware of what all requirements are. As we all know, this economy is a burden to many people including myself and I do need some extra cash to help out with additional expense and it is disappointing to have to waste money for nothing and liveops needs to realize this.
How to Make Money Writing for Hubpages
by Alicia Washington

I started writing for Hubpages online in the later part of February 2011, roughly about 15 months ago. Why?  I was looking for a way to supplement my income and I was determined to find something that I could do from home.  I always loved to write every since I could remember but I never thought of myself as a writer.  I rediscovered the writer inside of me through Hubpages.  

I stumbled upon Hubpages searching the Internet looking for legitimate ways to earn money at home.  I read the home page and the success stories inspired me to give it a try.  Especially since the writers came from different walks of life.  Some even reminded me of myself and I thought that I could do this too.  I mean, what did I have to lose.  I could write on virtually any subject or topic that I wanted to. I could even write poetry, which was right up my alley because I used to write poetry to express myself.  

The process was simple.  Sign up using my email address and then think of a topic to write about.  Of course, now Hubpages has made a lot of changes just in the short time that I have been writing for them online.  They now allow you to get paid for your videos, to answer questions, to sell products from Amazon and Ebay, and they even have an apprentice program where you can earn money just to improve in your writing.  All of the changes have made it possible for their writers to earn even more money. Now I am going to tell you how I make money writing for Hubpages and how you can too.

Initially, I starting writing on various topics from losing weight to relationships, to vacationing in the Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg Tennessee and all sorts of things.  Then I decided to start writing on topics that I was personally interested in and were already researching in my own spare time.  That would be about how to find work at home jobs or ways to earn money online.  Well, to my surprise I started to notice a trend.  My hubs or web articles started to gain more readers.  As a matter of fact, those articles were the ones that seemed to draw a larger audience.  So I decided to stick with these specific topics and focus on this subject entirely.  Four months later, I received my very first payment. Please click here to view proof of payment.  To date, I am still earning money writing for Hubpages. Some writers stick to one topic or subject and others write on a variety of topics.  There are no rules to this.  You can check your stats daily to view which articles are getting the most traffic and comments and adjust accordingly, if you desire.  

One thing that I have learned writing for Hubpages is that the more you write the more you will earn. There is a Hubpages challenge that you can participate in to write 30 hubs in 30 days.  If you do this you will get more exposure, followers, readers, views, and of course money.  

Anyone can write for Hubpages.  Even if you have never written an article before you can still make money writing for Hubpages.  Does this mean that you will get rich overnight?  No.  But with a little hard work, effort, and patience you will reap the rewards in no time.  As time goes on, you will get even better with your writing and build up your portfolio in the process.  Just think, your articles or story might even inspire someone else to start writing online for Hubpages.  

Hubpages is one of the most rewarding places to write online because they will pay you over and over again for each article that you write.  Yes it's true.  As long as it exists online, you will get paid. Payments are made through your Paypal account every month.  If you don't have one, you will need to acquire one in order to get paid.  

Do you want to write about your favorite celebrity, how you save money, places you love to visit, on parenting, your spin on the latest headlines, your favorite kitchen appliance, or that famous chili recipe you make?  The sky is the limit.  Whether you know it or not, you are an expert in something.  So start writing and earn some money in the process because there is a writer inside of everyone of us.  Click here to check out Hubpages for yourself. 

How to Make YouTube Videos if you are camera shy
By Alicia Washington

Would you like to earn money making YouTube videos without showing your face?  How can this be accomplished?  Here are a few things that you can do to get around this supposed obstacle.

1.  Make a video using screen capture software.  You never have to be intimidated about your appearance because your face will not be shown.  Viewers will only hear your voice.  You can record your activity on the Internet in an instructional video and upload it to Youtube.  If you have a Google Adsense account, you will be able to monetize your video and earn revenue from it.  

2.  Hire someone to make a video testimonial for you.  How much is this going to cost you?  It doesn't have to cost you hardly anything.  There is a popular website called Fiverr where you can hire someone to perform this service for you for
$5.  It is a virtual marketplace that many use to hire people to make logos for their website or business, to gain more Twitter followers, and all sorts of random things.  You can even request that they do a review for your website, business, blog, or advertise a service for you in their video.  You may have to check with each seller to find out their terms of service.  Every person is different.  Some prefer that you send them scripts and may have an allotted period of time for your video testimonial.  It could be anywhere from 30 seconds up to a minute or so.     

3.  Use Animation.  You can make a cartoon video and upload it to Youtube to get free traffic to your blog website or to advertise a product or service.  There is a free service offered on Youtube called GoAnimate that will allow you to make a video and pick which characters you would like to display and even change the sound of their voices.  You will type in what you want each character to say and upload it to YouTube.  The free videos are under 3 minutes or so but it can be a fun experience for you.  You can use MyLikes to make videos for free also but you will not be able to monetize those.  You will have to read the terms of service for Google Adsense and on MyLikes and GoAnimate to make sure you will not lose your Google Adsense account or be in violate any terms in your agreement when you use these free services.  

Nothing can hold you back.  You can still use Youtube to make videos and get free traffic, sell a product, promote your business or website, and earn some money in the process also.

You may be thinking to yourself, okay I am not tech savvy by any means.  The only thing you may know how to do is to read your emails and browse the Internet.  This fact alone will not hinder you from being able to create your own blog or website. How so?  Because there are so many companies today that now have user-friendly sites that you can design yourself without any skills or technical knowledge.  Of course you could always pay someone else to set it up for you but you may like the idea of doing it yourself and come to discover that you can do many more things than you thought you could.

What if you no nothing about blogging?  If you ever visited a blog or website than you know more than you think you do.  You know how to process works.  Someone writes a post and then publishes it.  If you are subscribed to their newsletter or blog, you will discover it in your email inbox and read it there.  You can also visit their site for more information.  You already know some of the basics of blogging.  There is a little more that is involved but blogging is not difficult at all.  Even youths can start their own blog with a little encouragement and assistance.

When I first seriously considered the idea of starting a blog and website, I only knew how to search the Internet, check my email and shop online.  I spent a little time researching blogging and reading books and other blogs which motivated me to try it myself.  My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.  

That is really the purpose of this book, to share with you my own personal experiences with blogging, how you can learn from my mistakes and successes and outline an easy strategy for you to make money blogging everyday for full time income.

How to Write a Good Review for Slicethepie
by Alicia Washington

Have you recently signed up to review music for Slicethepie and are having difficulty coming up with a good review to earn money. If so, you are not alone.  There are several people who have experienced this same problem and wanted to know if there were any techniques or tips to help them write outstanding reviews to earn even more money on Slicethepie.  This post will discuss how this can be accomplished so that you can earn more money listening and writing reviews for songs at home.  

First let me explain some basic facts about Slice the pie.  This particular company pays music fans to review music twice a week on Tuesday and Friday as long as you have earned at least $10 in your account.  If you consistently do this, you can get paid 8 times a month!  The only technical requirement that you will need to do this from home is good Internet connection.  This means that you will not have to complete a background check, submit a resume, take a test or go through a screening process to start earning money here.  They pay through your Paypal account so if you don't have one yet, you will need to acquire one to earn money from this company.  

After you have signed up with your email address you will be asked to pick your genre or style of music that you like to listen to.  Make sure that you select the categories wisely because you will not be able to change them after you have signed up.  Now you are ready to start listening to tracks.  You will not be able to submit your review or rate the song until you have listened to it for at least 90 seconds.  At this point, you will be able to submit your review and give details on what you just heard and this is where most people tend to get stuck.  Here are some tips to help you write a detailed review with constructive comments for the artists.

I like to think of reviewing music on Slicethepie like some of those singing competition shows like The Voice, X Factor, American Idol or even the Singing Bee where the judges rate and critic the singers performance.  Because you won't be taking notes, I like to start writing my review right from the introduction of the song so that I won't forget or leave out any important details.  Details are essential for a great review on Slicethepie.  Was the introduction powerful?  If so, mention that.  Did the song reach a climax and exceeded your expectations?  Were the vocals too pitchy?  Did the song remind you of one of those timeless classics like, "My Heart Will Go On", from Celine Dion?  If that is the case, make the comparison and explain why you felt that way, what made this particular song stand out and any other details that could be helpful.  Remember your honest review will give these unsigned artists feedback they can use to make improvements and continue to hone their craft.  

Here are some elements that make up a song that you can incorporate into your reviews.

  • Melody - Part of a song that can be sung alone so that it is recognizable.  Examples of great melodies in a song are:  Journey, "Don't Stop Believing", I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor, Enya's Caribean Blue and Aersomith's Dream On.
  • Harmony - Notes that compliment or support the harmony line.
  • Rhythm - Pattern of beats included in a song.  
  • Tempo - The speed in a song.
  • Intro - The instrumental section right at the beginning of the song.
  • Verse - Part of the song that has it's own melody that occurs again after the chorus and introduction.
  • Bridge - Section of the song that is different from the chorus and verse.
  • Hook - An important phrase or memorable theme in the song that may be repeated various times.  "Single Ladies" by Beyonce was a very popular song with an infectious hook. Most memorable songs have great hooks. 
Now that we have the basic elements of a song down the next step is to use this in conjunction with adjectives or descriptive words to make your review outstanding.  Here are some descriptive words that you can use.

When describing the song or type of song

Flat, funky, bluesy, acoustic, harmonious, melodic, off key, unplugged, organic, punk, hard, raw, unique, eccentric or classic.

When describing the vocals

Rough, raspy, weak, strong, great, impressive, husky, complex, shrill, beautiful, hoarse, penetrating, gruff, high-pitched, soft-spoken, modulated, toneless, small, large, fierce, choppy or nasal.

When describing the lyrics

Romantic, infectious, touching, memorable, believable, wild, etc.

Of course you can add your own adjectives or descriptive words but these are a few examples that I came up with if you can't think of anything to describe the song you are reviewing.  A good review will include how the song made you feel.  Do not leave this part out because it will reveal to the artist your connect or disconnect with the song, how it made you feel, your response to the song and so many other factors that the artist will benefit from.  

If you didn't like the song reveal why you didn't and what could be done to improve it.  Your review doesn't always have to be positive.  Remember that a negative review has just as much value as a positive one does because they will both provide valuable insight from a listeners perspective. 

Here are some more tips to earning more money for your reviews on Slicethepie.

  • Try to review music when you are alert and not tired.
  • Make sure their is no background noise or distractions when you are listening to songs there.
  • Jump right in and start writing your review so that you will not leave out any important points.
  • Write lengthy, detailed reviews.  At least 5 sentences long and more if possible.
  • If you feel yourself getting burned out, stop and refocus for a few minutes.  Grab a snack, beverage or just relax for a few moments and then resume your reviews when you feel refreshed.
Here is a recent payment proof that I got from Slicethepie

This is really a fun way to make money from home.  Some people earn a few hundreds dollars per month doing this.  This is one of the few companies that pays you cash bonuses for a good review. Just apply some of these tips and techniques and you will earn more money for your music reviews.  Please sign up here to start earning money on Slicethepie today!  If you would like to read more tips and see an example of a positive and negative review for Slicethepie, click here to read more.

How to Make 1,000 a year as a Website Tester
by Alicia Washington pays you to review websites and mobile apps. Testers are paid $10 per 20-minute test.  Most users take 2-4 tests per week, so it isn't a Get-Rich-Quick scheme, but you can easily make over $1,000 a year by taking a couple of tests each week.

How Does it Work?

Companies are looking for feedback on their websites and mobile apps.  UserTesting's users help provide that feedback. UserTesting will record your screen and voice as you navigate through a series of tasks.  Each test takes 15-20 min to complete.  Once complete, the test is uploaded to User Testing. It's simple and easy for testers.  Sign up to take a test, perform each task, speak your thoughts aloud clearly...and get paid!

How Do I Get Started?

In order to start taking tests for money, you first need to sign-up and submit a sample test (to make sure you can perform tasks in order and speak your thoughts aloud).
  • Go to UserTesting and signup.
  • Download the screen recorder and submit your sample test.
  • Once approved, you will be able to take 20 minute tests that pay you $10 each.
How Do I Get Paid? pays testers via PayPal.  You will need a PayPal account in order to receive your money.  After you complete a test, you will receive the money exactly 7 days later (so that UserTesting can review the test and make sure all tasks were completed and that you thought aloud the entire time).

How Much Will I Make?

Most users complete 2-3 tests per week, which would be $20-30 per week.  Over the course of a year, that's $1000-1600. Additionally, you will be helping to improve the web by providing companies with valuable user feedback?

Is It Legit?

Yes!  UserTesting has been in business for over 7 years and works with big brands like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Hulu, Verizon, Dell, Sony, Target and many many more.  In 2014, UserTesting will pay you almost $2 million to testers.

Tips for Testers

  • Stay logged-in to your dashboard.  You will receive more tests because we know you are actively on the site.
  • Log-in to your dashboard from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. PST for the best chance at receiving tests.  This is when most businesses are posting tests.
  • You want a 4-5 star rating.  With a higher rating you will receive priority for receiving new tests.  If your rating drops too low, you will stop receiving tests.
  • Don't take tests you don't qualify for.  It'll be obvious you don't qualify and you will get a low rating for the test.
  • Don't try to complete a lot of tests in one sitting.  It's much easier to receive tests if you do them over the course of the week rather than many in 1 day.
  • Use an Ethernet connection for your Internet.  WiFi is slower and the upload may not be fast enough.
  • Payments take 7 days to process (so we can check to make sure everything is okay with the uploaded test). Testers will receive their money after 7 days provided there are no issues with their test.
During the Test

  • Take your time and don't rush.
  • Make sure you understand the scenario (the mind-set you are asked to take for the test) before beginning the test.
  • Complete each task before moving on to the next task.
  • Keep speaking throughout the test.  Speak your thoughts out loud and clearly into the microphone.
  • If there is a problem with the test or if a test takes more than 20 minutes to complete, click the "Help" button and then click "Report a Problem."

18 Work at Home Companies that offer Perks
by Alicia Washington

What if I told you that you there are some companies that have impressive perks for their home based workers.  What kind of perks?  Because you work from home, these perks or incentives would be somewhat unique, not your average perks like receiving a discount for your lunch, free parking, fitness memberships, daycare centers at work, etc.  

Some companies that hire and use people to work from home recognize they may be low on funds initially but have the desire and discipline to work from their home office.  The only thing that may be stopping them from doing so is that they do not have a printer, or money to pay for long distance phone service or high speed Internet connection as a lot of companies require.  What solution have they come up with?  

A few companies understand the costs that the average remote worker may have to incur and they are willing to cut down or reimburse some of those fees which makes the job even more appealing.  Not only can you work from home but you may even get your high speed Internet connection paid for, they may even provide you with a headset, and a couple of companies have even been known to set you up with your own computer!  This ensure those workers that nothing can stop you from working from home, if this is your desire.  What companies will do this?  I have a list of legitimate work at home companies that offer awesome perks that you can read over below.  Please keep in mind they may or may not hiring at this time but make sure you are on the lookout for them when they do hire and apply as soon as you can to help you save even more money while working from home.

How to Get Data Entry Work at Home
by Alicia Washington

I know how difficult it can be to find and obtain legitimate data entry work from home.  At times, it can seem to be next to impossible.  This is largely due to the abundance of data entry (scams) on the Internet today.  They are posted everywhere.  You can't escape it!  

But what if you found a legitimate data entry company like Cass Info, GAO, or Virtualbee and you still have difficulty getting accepted for these companies.  Does this mean that you should give up your goal to work from home as a data entry operator? Not necessarily.  It just may require you to think outside the box. What do I mean?  Let me explain.

I realize that data entry is an aggressively desired job that can make it a challenge for you to land a position but you can turn the tables around and have the clients come to you.  How can this be accomplished?  By offering your typing skills to others in exchange for pay.  You could initially try one of those open marketplaces like Fiverr and offer to type a page, document, or report for others for $5.  You can even do add-ons where you will agree to deliver the work in just a day or two for an extra $20 or agree to do several pages for an extra $5 per page or whatever you decide.  Make sure that you stipulate exactly what your typing gig involves and does not involve so that it will be worth your while.  Those data entry gigs and tasks could turn out to equate to you earning $10 to $15 per hour or much more.  

If you acquire a lot of satisfied clients on Fiverr, they may become repeat customers and refer new customers to you which will allow you to make a decent income doing data entry from home and give you the option of starting your own data entry business!  With your own business, you can branch out and reach even more clientele and even set up a free blog or website of your choice to promote your services and display your portfolio.  It will also give you more control over the prices that you set, help you to take home all of your revenue and not have to share it with others, and allow you to earn even more revenue if you decide to monetize your blog or website.

Of course, Fiverr is not the only option because you could use advertise your services on Craigslist, Odesk, or even UpWork. Pursuing and taking advantage of as many avenues as you can will bring you a lot of exposure.  This is exactly what you want and need to finally do data entry work at home and have the customers coming to you.

Review of ACD Direct
by Mrs. R

ACD Direct

This is one of my favorite companies for flexibility of schedule and a non-stressful customer service position.  Didn't know that existed. Well it does with ACD Direct.

What does the job entail at ACD Direct?  

ACD Direct takes calls for Public Broadcasting Service, National Public Radio, political campaigns and other charities.  Most calls are inbound (where the customers call you and you don't have to call out).  This is one of the best customer service jobs to have. Usually when you are in a customer service position you are dealing with customers that have problems they want you to solve.  A lot of times, they are irate and it can be very stressful dealing with this on a day in day out basis, but this is not the case with ACD Direct.

You are taking calls for people who are calling in to give a donation or pledge.  The whole call is different and they usually end the call thanking you because they think you are volunteering your time and are the people they see on TV during the fundraisers.

Management is very helpful and your co-workers are nice too.  We all work as a team.  All sounds too good to be true, right?  I know you are waiting for the drawbacks.  Well this job is a pay per minute per talk time position which means, if the calls are not coming in you will not make any money.  But during pledge months the call volume is awesome and you will have no problem making more.  This would not be a job that I would use to replace my full time job but it is great for supplemental income.

How to Earn More Money working for ACD Direct

My suggestion would be that when the call volume is up, work as much as you can to offset the low call volume.  Also when the call volume is slow, use that time to certify for as many clients as you can.  The cost to certify for a client is $5-$10 or you can use your own points.  You get points when you sign up to work shifts and certify for clients.  Take advantage of the opportunity to certify for a client.  The more clients you certify for, the higher your call volume will be will means more earnings for you!

  1. Flexibility of Schedule
  2. Not Stressful
  3. Enjoyable Work
  4. Wonderful management
  5. Great co-workers
  6. Pay per minute talk time
  1. Does not pay by the hour
If you are looking for a stress free customer service job with a flexible schedule.  Check them out.  You will be glad you did.

My Experience with Arise
by Mrs. R

Arise is one of my favorite work from home companies. Why you may ask? It offers the best of both worlds. At Arise you are a home based business or independent contractor. What does that mean?  That means you are responsible for paying your own taxes, you do not get benefits, but you may be able to deduct expenses associated with a home office(check with a tax professionals) and you get to choose your own hours.

To get started you have to:

1. Setup a profile

2. Take a brief Voice Assessment*

3. Complete a background check*

4. Certify as a Client Support Professional (CSP 101)*

5. Setup your own Independent Business or join an existing Independent Business Partner

I enjoyed working for Arise because it gave me the best of both worlds. I had worked as an independent contractor before where I was paid by the call, which meant if the calls were not coming in you did not make any money.
With Arise you are paid an hourly wage or a per call rate. So if the calls are slow you make the hourly wage. If they are coming in quickly you make the per call rate.

So you always know you cannot make less then whatever your hourly wage is times the hours you work.

At Arise you have to be a home based business or LLC. You can have someone do this for you or you can go online and download the papers and do it yourself (it is much cheaper this way) and then you have to pay a fee to keep it every year, which depends on the state. I paid $40.00. You also have to have an EIN number with you can get by calling the IRS. This is free. You also have to do a background check and you need a name or your business.

Once you complete all of this and turn it in you are ready to pick your client. You have to pay for the certification course which could range from $29 to about $200 for some clients offer deferred payment. The courses can last one week to 2 months during which time you are not getting paid. But some companies do offer a bonus once you pass the course and take calls for certain amount of time, (they will tell you this at the beginning).

You do the class online in a webex type environment. At the end you take the test and if you pass you are ready to start servicing that client.

I like Arise for the flexibility of it. I could choose my hours. If I wanted to work morning one day, afternoon the next, evening the next it was fine as long as I did my required weekly hours. (which is told to you upfront).

How to Find Work at Home Jobs using Craigslist
By Alicia Washington

Can you really use Craigslist to find legitimate work at home jobs? You may at first assume that there is absolutely no such thing. Craigslist only has scams but I will show you how you can use this site to not only find but also apply to work at home jobs using Craigslist.  Here are some practical tips to help you get started.

Start your search in the location in which you are closest to or in a larger city

If you decide to start you job search in one of the larger cities, you may have a greater chance of finding a work at home job and spend less time of the site.  What major cities am I referring to?  Here are some of the larger ones listed below.
  • Houston
  • Los Angeles
  • Chicago
  • Philadelphia
  • Phoenix
  • San Antonio
  • Dallas
  • San Jose
  • Austin
  • Jacksonville
  • Nashville
  • Indianapolis
  • San Francisco
  • Columbus
  • Forth Worth
  • Charlotte
  • Detroit
  • El Paso
  • Memphis
  • Boston
  • Seattle
  • Denver
Because Craigslist is so popular with over 20 billion page views per month, many posters will target this site and in particular the job section because they are aware that people are looking for ways to earn money from home.  They may be trying to get referrals, customers, and who knows what else.   What can you do to avoid this?  Search very carefully.  Look for things like you would if you were searching in your local newspaper. A job title, job description, job duties, pay, contact information including their name and phone number, and name of the company as well if it is provided.  This will enable you to research the company further and do your own investigation.  Not all job listings will have everything that I described in this list but try to apply to those jobs that have detailed information included in their post.

Avoid job descriptions like:

Make $700 a week!
Easy money from home
Need extra cash
Get paid daily
Social Media jobs
Get paid to Type

This just an example of some of the ads that you will see there but people will get more creative and experienced posting these ads so they are not limited to what is shown above.  

Do not give out any personal information  

If a company asks for your bank account information, social security number, or any other personal information just to apply without even knowing whether you will get the job or not RUN FAST!  Do not give out your private information to a poster on Craigslist.

Ask questions 

If you are not sure if a particular job or company is legitimate, ask someone else.  Preferably someone who has worked from home or is knowledgeable about work at home companies or even contact the poster and ask him or her specific questions about the job if you are very interested and it seems to be a very vague or shallow listing.  If they don't want to give out any information or want to disclose your earnings, it could be a sign that it is not legit.  You have a right to know as much as you can about a company or a job that you want to perform for them before you get fully invested in them.

Search in multiple cities 

Do not limit yourself to just one city or location to look for work at home jobs.  If you have time, search 3 or 4 locations at a time to increase your chances of finding a work at home job.  

Search the company's website

Most likely, if the company that is hiring people to work from home is legitimate, they will have a website that you can visit and browse through.  If you found their job listing on Craigslist, look in the career section on their official website and search through the jobs and frequently asked question page to get more information. If there is no company or website listed in the posting, just be careful when proceeding.  It doesn't mean that it is not legitimate because some employers choose to remain anonymous on Craigslist for whatever reason but you will definitely want to find out more especially as you get further along in the process.

Search regularly

As the old saying goes, "If at first you don't succeed try and try again".  This is also true when it comes to looking for work at home jobs.  You may not find anything that interests you or you want to apply to the first time.   Does this mean that there are no work at home jobs for you.  What should you do?  Keep looking. You may have to search multiple times on a regular basis but don't give up.  Eventually you will find a suitable work at home job just for you.

How You can Get Paid Daily from a Blog
By Alicia Washington

Have you ever imagined having your own blog or website and actually being able to earn money from it?  It is really possible for anyone to do this.  All you need is a computer, content, and Internet connection.  How much can you really earn, how to get started and more will be explained in this article.

What is a blog?

A blog is simply a platform that is used to put content on.  It is information that you will put on an online journal or diary to be published on the World Wide Web.  Because it is published online, people will come to find out more information about the subject or topic that your blog is centered around.  From cooking to sports to fashion, a blog is your personal footprint or voice that can be heard virtually.

Can anyone start a blog?

Absolutely.  Teenagers, adults, celebrities, businesses, corporations, and anyone who wants to can have their own blog.  

How much does a blog cost?

Nothing.  You can get a free blog from or wordpress. Of course you can pay for a blog if you choose to but this is not a requirement.  Many choose to purchase hosting from sites like Go Daddy, Host Gator, or Blue Host.  Hosting is basically renting space online to have a place for your blog or website to sit, but this is also optional and up to the discretion of each blogger.  
Note:  If you use blogger you can host it there and never have to pay hosting fees but if they feel that you have violated their terms and conditions, they could take your blog down without any notice and that is why some people decide to host it on a server like the ones I mentioned above.  This will give the blogger full control over their blog or website and content contained within.

What will I blog about?

Anything you want to.  It is all up to you.  If you feel that you are an expert or have knowledge in an area or subject that will benefit others, you can blog about it.  You can also have a personal blog and post and upload pictures of your favorite places to travel, foods to eat, your pets, etc.  You can even create a hodgepodge of a blog with random things on it.  Because it is your blog, you can post whatever information you want.  It is a reflection of you and even if there are hundreds on blogs on the topic you choose, it will still be unique, because no two people are the same.

How can I make money?

By placing advertisements on your blog or website.  You can also sell advertising slots on your blog.  Sell your own products and so much more.  Here is a recent video I made about how to put ads on your blog.  Please click here for a list of companies that will pay you to be a publisher and promote other businesses and well known companies.

How much will I make?

You can make anywhere from a few cents per day to a few dollars a day or even hundreds a day.  It depends on how much traffic you get.  It also depends on the content that you produce.  The content is what will drive people to your blog or website.  Try to create good, quality content on a regular basis.  You can also get free content from a few companies that I have listed here.

Just remember to have fun, work hard, and you will reap the benefits accordingly.  If you are seriously considering starting your own blog or website, please watch this video that will give you some tips on how you can start your own blog or website today!

What is involved?

This job is fairly easy to do.  You get paid paid to visit a website and browse around on the homepage and other pages to give your honest feedback or opinion on the things you liked or didn't like.  If you have been on the Internet for some time, you probably have visited or visit several websites daily.  This is exactly what a website tester does.  Companies will pay you for your review of their site and use this data to make improvements or adjustments to accommodate everyday users to their site.  Your opinion and reviews are valuable to the success of their company or business and that is why you will be compensated for your time.

What will I need to get started?

Every site is different but in general you will need a computer with a microphone, possibly a webcam, a paypal address, and an email address.  Depending upon whatever company you sign up for, you may need to download a software program to your computer so that they can capture your screen when you visit each site but this is just to record your experience while you are completing each test.  Keep in mind that every company will not require you to download any software to be a website tester.

How long will it take?

It will take you only 15 to 20 minutes to complete each test online.

You will get paid $10 for each site that I will list below with the exception of Whatusersdo.  They pay $8 for each test you complete as a website tester.

Either the same day or before the week is up through your paypal account.

How do I get started?

Go to the official website of the company or companies that you are interested in signing up for to be a website tester.  Fill out your personal details including name, email address, etc.  You may need to fill out an application online but not every company will require that you complete this step, for example trymyui does not require that you fill out an application.  After you complete those steps and confirm your email address, you are ready to get started.

How will I know when a test is ready for me to complete?

When a test is ready for you to complete you will be sent an alert through your email address.  Simply open that email and click on the link contained within and proceed accordingly.

My recommendations

Please make sure that you read any information or F.A.Q. listed on their homepage so that you will know exactly what is required of you.  It will also be helpful to watch any videos that might be available.  All of your questions should be answered there, if not, contact each company directly for more information.

Could you use an extra $10 per day working from home?  At first, it may not seem like a lot but if you think about it that is equivalent to

Sponsored Tweets

If you have a lot of followers on Twitter, you can earn $10 per day sending out tweets online.  It also depends upon how active and influential you are on Twitter but even if you don't have a lot of followers, you can still earn money tweeting from Sponsored Tweets.  


This company will actually pay you $8 per hour to write articles online.  You will be required to work 15 hours per week and submit at least 5 articles but it actually equals out to be more than $10 per day.  If you write for Remilion, you will earn $120 every week.

Navigating the job world to find a Work at Home Job

By J Leach


Finding a job can be a daunting task. Many job seekers looking for a work at home (W@H) job can feel incredibly overwhelmed. Working at home may not be the right path for everyone but it has some advantages that many find appealing including:

  • · *Saving time: Lessening commute time to and from work.
  • · *Saving money: Money savings on fuel, eating on the go, etc.
  • · *Promoting greater work-life balance.

These are just a couple benefits you can reap from working at home. As note earlier, this arrangement is not for everyone. Some challenges associated with working at home include:

  • · *Inability to separate work and home life.
  • · *Feeling of being cooped up in one space.
  • · *Missing social interaction with coworkers.

Evaluate the pros and cons of a W@H job to see if it is truly the right fit for you. If it is, here are some helpful tips to aid in your job hunt.


1. Searchable sources: Don’t limit your search by looking only online. Check out other media channels like radio, newspaper, etc.

2. Evaluate your skills and experience: Not all jobs can transition easily into a W@H job. If your current or former job falls in this category, think outside the box. Think about how your skills can transition into a W@H job. For example, if you were an admin for a large company, perhaps virtual assisting is W@H job to pursue.

3. Join a forum: It might be comforting to see other people in the same boat as you. One of my favorite work at home forums is WAHM (Work at Home Mom). Some other online resources include Telecommute Mama and Warrior Forum.

4. Be patient: Finding a job takes time. Don’t be discouraged if it takes some time to secure your W@H job.

5. Look to your employer: Are you already employed now? Talk to your employer to see if your duties could be completed from home. In many cases it’s cheaper for the employer to have their staff work from home (i.e. Less resources used at the office, smaller office space required, less costly, etc.)

An alternative to working with an employer W@H arrangement would be self-employment. Operating an at-home business can have minimal cost involved for operations in some cases.


Here are some examples of at-home business opportunities:

Direct Sales: Avon, Mary Kay, Scentsy, etc.

Affiliate marketing: Sell other people’s products for a commission; in some cases even 100% commission!

Independent contractor: Search engine evaluator jobs on a contract basis with companies like Appen Butler Hill or Leapforce are some examples of independent contract work. Other opportunities such as site testing, staff writing, etc.

Task work: Advertise your skills on sites like Odesk, Freelancer, Fiverr, Twentyville, etc. People select you to complete tasks like creating a web banner, data entry, writing an article, sharing a resource, etc.

Today, W@H jobs are much more common than in the past. Hopefully the tips shared will aid in your quest to find a W@H job.

Finding Legitimate Online Jobs 
by Pernita L. Spears

I think when it comes to working online you have to be very skeptical about the companies you apply for.  I speak from experience, back in the year 2008, I signed up for a company called Panda Research (it is a survey completion job) and I didn't research it or look it up to see if it was a scam before agreeing to their policies.  I got in routine in completing the surveys the pay was great but the thing is I never got to see my money even after I requested it for pay out.  It was only $50 but I also had money that was pending which was $100.  My pending money never got included into my active active I waited 2-3 weeks to see a change.    

After the long wait and contacting customer service and got no answer, I then researched the company and saw the reviews that were available and seen people who were deep in the hole worse than me.  For an example, I seen a lady that had $3000 in her account and she had another $1500 pending and she said it never got added and she never got the check that she requested in the payout area.  This shows me exactly what I thought this place is a scam and I don't know if they were using my email for nonsense or for spam and trying to collect my personal info from it.  I have just recently researched them again and they are still having the same problem and scamming people to believe that they will get all this money and that they really pay them when they get to the payout goal or beyond.  Working online takes a lot of time and dedication and research in order to make sure that you're dealing with a properly legitimate job and staff that can help you when things may go wrong.  I have learned my lesson early and have taken the initiative to really network with people my age and older and pay attention to the little details that may be warning signs to stay away from this site.  I try to stay away from sites that ask you to come out of your pocket in order to work for them.  I do in fact like MCA (Motor Club America).  I also like Textbrokers it is a legit writing company that pays you for writing articles short and long.

5 Ways to Make Money without a Blog or Website
by Alicia Washington

Have you ever heard that you can't make money without a website?  It is true that there is money to be made by having your own website.  You can sell advertising slots on your blog, use affiliate programs to earn passive income and of course Google Adsense.  That is the top money-maker for many webmasters on the internet today.  Some would say that they couldn't even survive or keep their blog going without it.  But is there a way for you to earn money without a blog or website?  Let's explore this question next.

Some may feel that it is too risky to try to earn money without a blog or website.  It may seem unrealistic for some but it really is possible for anyone one to do this.  You may be thinking that you don't have a skill or talent that you could parlay into a product to sell, but this is not a requirement in order for you to be able to earn money online.  So does this mean that you will have to talk on the phone and pretend to be someone else to earn money online.  Absolutely not!  You will not have to do anything illegal or engage in an activity that would go against your conscience to earn money at home without a blog or website.  

Is it a scam?  
Do I have to come up with money upfront?  
The answers to both of these questions are NO.  Are you in complete suspense now?  By now, you can probably think of a thing or two that you can do from home and if not, you may come up with even more things you can do to earn money without a blog or website that I haven't mentioned here.  Just remember to think outside of the box and take risks.  How will you know what the outcome will be if you stay in the "safe lane".  Here are a few ideas for you to earn money online.

1.  Write your own books - You could be the next best-seller out there.  Do you have a story to tell?  Are you already writing online but just have not made the leap into writing your own books as of yet?  Are you an expert in a certain area or topic and have valuable information to share with others?  If you have ever thought about writing a book of poems, a how-to, your own special recipes, a fiction novel, or anything that you are passionate about, you can write.  Don't wait for the right time.  The time is now. Amazon and many other places has made it so easy for you to self-publish your own books for free.  All you have to do is decide what you will write about, type it, and download it to whatever format they accept.   Then you upload it to their website, set up your price, and you are ready to sell. Ebooks are so convenient for book readers and popular today.  You could even write your own book in a couple of days if you know your topic well.  So get started writing and self-publishing your own book or books today.

2.  You Tube - There is a large audience for anyone to earn money making videos on You Tube.  Maybe you have a funny video of your kids playing around the house or yard, or you could show people your favorite make up tips and so forth.  Sign up for a Google Adsense account and you can earn money every month for your videos.

3.  Blog Frog - This is a website that helps brands and bloggers to expand their businesses by engaging in conversations with other bloggers.  So what if you don't have a blog, that is okay.  You don't need a blog or website to earn money from Blog Frog.  You sign up, start your own community, and allow advertising to run inside your community and get paid for page views alone.  Once you have reached $30 in your account, you will be sent a check in the mail from Blog Frog.  You just start discussions on your favorite topic or subject and interact with others on the things that interest you.  It is that simple.

 Blogging - You can write for others online and earn money.  There are several legitimate writing and blogging gigs online.  The best part about it is that you do not have to be experienced to break into writing.  Even if you have never written anything before in your life, you can earn money writing articles, blog posts, and more online.  There are an abundance of writing jobs for all.  Please check out this blog for the latest legitimate work at home writing and blogging opportunities.

5.  Working from Home - You no longer have to work outside the home unless that is your preference because there are many companies that hire Telecommuters to work from their home office.  There are jobs in customer service, transcription, bookkeeping, accounting, sales, data entry, and more.  Just check out this blog and make sure that you go to the weekly job section for the current work at home jobs available.  

You could also sell your handmade crafts, get paid to tweet out messages to your followers, offer to complete simple tasks on places like Fiverr for others, and so much more.  The possibilities are endless.

The variety of information yielding in front of you when you hit google makes you confuse of what are you going to follow first; the information in the first page of google or the ones next and so on.

Another reason for complication of an online job seeking is the linking of websites and articles in a particular first visited web page. For an instance you are reading "Online Job Opportunities" article where there are array of clickable links about the specific jobs mentioned. This alone makes the newbie job seeker to be astonished clicking all the links and opening all the tabs almost simultaneously.

As a beginner, one should set priorities first to avoid the confusing ideas mentioned above. List down your interests or passion in numeral order. Make your most loved interest to be at the very top of your list. If you have a passion in writing, lets say, you search for writing opportunities first and avoid clicking on links unrelated to your main subject. Focus on your priority and abide on your own set of rules for your own sake. Open tabs once in a while, read the page first and close it before going to another link. If one interests you enough, you may bookmark it on your browser and go back to it later when you feel that it is better than the other opportunities. Make sure also to place it in a separate folder from your other bookmarks to make it easy for you to retrieve it later. Do this on the next priorities on your list one at a time.

By following this simple direction, you can refrain from getting complex job ideas online. Thus, make it easier for you to start your online job hunt and land to a good one sooner.
