Get paid to Tell What You Think
by Alicia Washington

One of my best and favorite survey companies out there today is from a company called Tellwut.  It is a Canadian based company that allows you to complete and create short polls for points that you can redeem for gift cards, prizes, and other merchandise. It is approved by the Survey Police and has the BBB seal of approval. Not very many companies can say that. Tellwut literally stands for Tell what you think and you get rewarding for doing just that. They will also reward you for referring your friends, for joining their voter panel, and more. 

Another reason that I like this panel is because you will never get disqualified for their surveys, unlike other companies. Every time you complete a survey or poll, you will earn points.  This is a big relief for those who spend time participating in surveys and even filling them out only to find that you did not qualify and your valuable time was wasted because you didn't earn any money. You also don't have to wait for them to send you a survey, you simply log on to the site every day to earn your points. 

The surveys only take a minute or less to complete and the points add up very quickly!  You can redeem your points for rewards like these listed below.

4,000 Points = $10 Amazon Gift Card
6,000 Points = $15 Amazon Gift Card
8,200 Points = $20 Barnes & Noble Gift Card
10,000 Points = $25 Walmart Gift Card
so many other rewards to choose from

As long as you live in the United States and Canada and are at least 18 years of age, you can sign up with Tellwut and start getting rewards for telling them what you think.  Sign up here!

List of Sites that Pay the same day!
By Alicia Washington


Would you like to get paid the same day for the tasks that you do online?  I decided to write this post because I had many requests asking if there were any companies where you can get paid shortly after you sign up with them.  These simple tasks can be done in addition to any other jobs that you do online.  It is perfect for stay at home moms, those looking to work part time, students, those who work outside the home, or anyone who has access to a computer and would like to earn extra money from home.  

Keep in mind that in order for you to get paid, most companies have a minimum payment threshold that you have to meet.  This could be a small as $10 or go as high as $50.  There are some exceptions to this rule and Yahoo Contributor as well as many of the upfront writing companies may be also.  You will have to check with each company to know for sure.  You may also consider obtaining a Paypal account to get your money even faster.  Here are a list of some companies that pay the same day!

Work at Home Job Vs. Work at Home Business

by Alicia Washington 

You want to earn extra money from home but you don't know where to start or what you can do.  You definitely want to avoid any and all work at home scams of which there happen to be many of those out there on the Internet.  The majority of those come up first in the search engine rankings long before you find any legitimate companies you can apply to.  It seems unfair but don't give up because there are several ways for you to earn money from home but first I must explain the difference between a work at home job and a work at home business.

Is there really a difference between the two you may ask?  The answer is yes.  A work at home job is simply that.  A job or duty that you would perform outside of the work place in your own home office right from your computer.  Working at home gives you the freedom to work in your own environment and allow you to have more time to spend with your family.  Some companies even offer their employees who work from home a flexible schedule so that you can perform at a time that is convenient for you.  This is not a general rule because every company and employer has their own set of guidelines and standards but it is not unrealistic to expect or look for these options in a work from home job.  You may even be asked to complete a background check depending upon the nature of the job where small fees may may be incurred. Most employers will cover this cost but if the company that you are applying to does not, they may either deduct it from your pay or ask you to pay that fee.  It shouldn't cost more than $30.

If you work for a company where you assemble crafts and jewelry from home, you may need to purchase a kit and the price range for those may vary.  For this kind of work at home job, you normally get paid after you have sent in your product and it has been accepted.  Some companies pay by the piece or projects but as I stated earlier, every company is different.  Other than these exceptions, there should not be any other fees associated with working from home, if any at all.  Just a side note:  I have yet to find a legitimate company that will pay people to do this from home.   

A work at home business on the other hand, is a totally different thing altogether.  More than likely you are probably going to have to make a small investment to get started.  If you decide to start a work at home business like Mary Kay, Avon, Pampered Chef, Tupperware, selling candles, jewelry, books, etc you will need to purchase a kit, brochures, products, or samples to show to your potential customers.  Your payment will most likely come from sales and commissions.  You can earn a percentage of the merchandise that you sell or whatever terms each individual company has agreed upon.  Potential earnings may not be guaranteed or known until after you have been in the business for sometime.  It can vary from month to month.  If you have a good network or clientele base, your earnings could reach maximum potential.  With a work at home business, you can work around your schedule or your clients schedule.  There is a possibility that there will be some travel involved for you to meet with your clients by having parties, trunk or jewelry shows, demonstrations, or other creative ways to get your product noticed and on display. You could even decide to sell your products through Etsy, Ebay, Zazzle, Amazon, or even on your own blog or website.  Some companies will charge you a fee for selling your products through them and others won't.  If you sell it through your own website, you can keep 100% of the profits if it is not company based.  That is just one of the advantages of having your own blog or website. It can prove to be a win win situation especially if you have a steady flow of traffic to your site.   

These are just some of the things to consider between having a work at home job and a work at home business.  More often than not you can probably expect to invest a little bit of money when it comes to starting a work at home business but if you are successful, you will get it all back and then some.

Elance Review - Working for Elance

It's being called the "Freelance Revolution" and what is that exactly?  Well, if you are a regular visitor to this site, you're probably part of this.  If this is the first time, you're visiting, then you're probably thinking of jumping on this bandwagon yourself. It's all about working at home!

I am a part of this revolution.  And precisely because as a stay at home mom, I wanted to transition to being a work at home mum.  I wanted something that would enable me to use my talents and abilities.  I wanted to do something that would enable me to contribute to the income of our home, you know, not having to run to hubby for every little monetary need.  And you know what, I found it.  In the form of Elance, one of the biggest freelancing sites in the world.  I've been working at home as a transcriber via Elance for a little under two years now and have never looked back.

Elance was founded in 1999 and is an online marketplace.  It has over two million registered freelancers and over half a million clients.  On March 9, 2014, Elance announced that freelancers had earned over $1 billion.  We are talking about big business!

With the advent of the Internet, came the opportunity to make money online and the chance to work at home.  Well, many scams have come up promising you that you can make money overnight.  Don't fall for the scams.  Elance provides a chance to do work - legitimate work at that - and get paid for it.  Let's take a look at why I love this site.  Hopefully at the end of it, you'll be itching to sign up and start working too.

1.  A Wide Marketplace of Jobs

Elance provides the opportunity to meet up with different clietns.  With over 500,000 clients, there are numerous jobs being posted every hour.  Whether you're into graphic design, video editing, article writing, transcription, software developing etc, there are clients who are looking for contractors who can offer such services.

2.  Excellent Customer Service

Elance have excellent support staff as far as I'm concerned.  Every time, I have had an issue, they have responded professionally and fast to my queries.  Don't misunderstand though, I haven't had serious issues but the few time I have needed help, I have been sufficiently helped.

3.  Escrow System

Elance has an escrow system in place.  If I may put this in a simpler way, it simply means insurance.  Once you have been awarded a contract by a client for a fixed rate job, Elance recommends that the client releases escrow.  Here's an example:  If you'be been awarded a contract to do logo design which you are charging $50, the clients is expected to release the $50 to Elance.  This means that you, as the freelancer will be able to work comfortably knowing that once you have completed the project the client will have to release the money.  It is therefore recommended not to start working on a project until the client has funded escrow.  Really, it's for your own good.  There are also hourly jobs, for which there is the Work View feature.  This means that the clients is able to see that you are working on their project as a screen shot is taken periodically.  Getting scammed on Elance really is not easy.

4.  Connects

This is the Elance "currency" or shall I call it legal tender?  A freelancer is given 40 connect each month.  That means that to send your proposals or to bid for jobs, you need connects.  Most jobs will cost you one connect.  However, you can get more than 40 connects if you upgrade from the free membership to the individual membership.  I like the fact that there is a limit to the number of connect freelancers get.  That ensures that freelancers are more careful about the jobs they send proposals too.

5.  Skill Tests

It is highly recommended that you take tests before you start sending proposals for jobs that you might be interested in.  If you do well on them, you'll be miles ahead of your competition.  No need to sweat it out though.  If you fail at any test, you can always re-do it later.  The tests are timed but as the tests are open book, it means that you can Google up the answers.  To start off, I recommend you take the English test, which ranger from the English UK and US basic English spelling tests, vocabulary tests etc especially if you're into article writing.

Conclusion

There are some pretty awful reviews on Elance on the net and I can't quiet get it.  As I stated earlier, I've been working for this site for a little under two years and I've absolutely enjoyed it.  For one, I have never been scammed.  I have been paid for every single job that I have done.

There needs to be a bit of wisdom applied though.  Check out client reviews before you send your proposal.  Make sure the client has a verified payment system and that they give good feedback to the contractors they hire:  at least most of the time.

I personally have no qualms with Elance.  I've enjoyed the opportunities therein that have allowed me to work at home.  I've had continuous work but then I'm pretty aggressive when it comes to bidding for jobs.  I have no regrets.  And my final three words for you:  Try it out.  
Please sign up for Elance right here to get access to several work at home jobs, tasks and assignments.

7 Reasons you should Sell Avon at Home
by Alicia Washington


Would you like to earn money selling products that people love in your spare time?  Would you like to stay at home and start your own business but have no idea where to start?  Avon may be just the solution for you.  I will give you 7 reasons why you should start selling Avon today.  It may be easier than you think.

Easy to Sell

Avon is one of the largest direct selling companies in the world and has been in business for over 100 years.  You probably even use or know someone that uses Avon products in their home.  Some of their best selling products include Skin So Soft, Moisture Therapy, anti-aging products, and other makeup and cosmetic favorites.  Many who buy their products really use them because they have quality prices that everyone can afford.  Once you have identified yourself as an Avon Independent Sales Rep you will have loyal customers because the brand that you represent is so well known and trusted by many households today.

Low Start up Cost

When you think about starting your own business, no doubt you may factor in that there will be some cost involved.  You may have advertising, building ,storage, mileage, and other expenses related to your business.  Some of those expenses could get pretty pricey.  But you could join Avon online for only $10.  Imagine starting your own business for just $10!  Almost anyone could afford to do this. The $10 includes everything to help you get started.  It comes with a kit, brochures, training materials, samples, a tote bag, and an order book.

Unlimited Earnings

The potential to earn money at Avon is unlimited.  You earn a percentage of the commission for each order that you place.  If you reach the Senior Executive Leader level you can earn a 6 figure salary.  Of course this all depends on how much you sell.  As with anything the more you sell the more you earn.

Flexible Schedule

Because it is your own business you can work when you want at your own pace and according to your individual needs.  You can work full time or part time.  You set your own hours which gives you the flexibility to work around your children's schedule if you are a stay at home mom.

No Requirements

Unlike other direct selling companies, Avon does not require you to attend meetings, have parties, there are no quotas so the size of your order does not matter, and you do not have to recruit other reps.  This eliminates unnecessary pressure and helps you to sell with confidence.

Move up in the Company

As I mentioned earlier you have the option to move up in the company.  There are different levels that you can reach like President Club Member, Executive Unit Leader, and Senior's Executive Leader.  There is the potential for growth with Avon.

Work at Home

You can sell Avon online without ever having to leave your home.  Avon gives you the opportunity of giving you your online store!  Your customers can buy the products that they love from your store and have the option to get them shipped to their home or you could chose to deliver them.

These are just a few reasons why you should sell Avon at home and how you can get started doing this.  If you are interested in learning more about becoming an Avon Independent Sales Rep and starting your own business.  Click here.

Can your school aged children or teenagers really earn money at home completing and filling out out surveys online?  Yes.  If your child already spends time on the computer they can earn money for their opinions and answers online.  Most surveys only take around 5 minutes to complete but from time to time, they have more lengthy surveys.  You will be made aware of this when you are invited to complete the survey online.  The longer surveys will consist of watching a kid's television show online or even a clip on an upcoming movie.

This is a legit way for your child or teenager to earn extra money at home and they may really enjoy it because the surveys are tailored to young ones and ask for their opinion about their favorite products, toys, shows they watch, and so much more!  You can even assist your child as they fill out their survey at home. They can use the extra money that they earn to put in their savings, to spend, or even use to purchase a gift for someone else.  Here are some things you need to know before you get started.

How does it work?

You simply go to a website of a survey company that I have listed below and sign up online.  Your child will need their parent's permission before they sign up and sometimes before they complete a survey online.  After they have successfully signed up online, they will be invited to participate in a survey as they become available.  You will give your honest opinion in the form of an answer to a question, multiple choice or in a typed statement.   

What are the requirements?

You will need to meet the age requirements of each survey company and have a valid email address.  You may need a paypal account depending upon which company that you sign up for to get paid.

What kind of surveys will I be invited to?

They vary from survey to survey but the majority of them will be geared towards the latest toy, your favorite stores, an upcoming movie or television show, what games you like to play, activities you engage in, and so forth.

How will I get paid?

You will get paid either by check or through your paypal account.

Will it cost me anything?

Never.  You get paid you don't pay anything.

Basic Couponing 101 Part 1 Should I Coupon Or Not !


Should I coupon or not ?

Well if you knew me very well I would never try doing any thing like this. Then times got really tuff when I lost my job. I heard some one talking about it so I did my research and gave it a try.My first Free item I got with a coupon was Kraft BQ Sauce. I was hooked. So it is a big yes. So week after week I would get Free items.So I was like ok I told my husband for the first time in 34 years of married will you put me on a really budget. The look on his face was priceless. So if you would like to save 50% or more on your grocery bill then yes you should coupon.


What is a coupon ?

It is a way of saving and getting a item for the lost price possible.Matching a coupon to a sales ad,Your goal is to try and shop for coupon sale items only.


I know you are asking your self can I really save money ?

It is 100% yes let me show you a example of what I am talking about here is a store ad deal ok this is a Homeland deal and the coupon doubles.
Kraft BBQ Sauce $1.27
Use $1.00/2 Kraft BQQ Sauce SS 5/6 exp 6/6
Final Price: $1.54 or $.77 each
so see after you start learning the art of how to stock pile I will have that in a lesson down the road. You kind of start focusing on a few items a week. This was the first item I got for free so you really have to watch your ads and match your coupons to the store deals I post.

What about clipping coupons for products I don't buy ?

Boy did I learn the hard way on this one. I always make sure a little of everything in my coupon binder.You have to think out side the box for me I was thinking about donations to my church and people in need out side of my family. And trust we before I started to coupon I was very all about the brand name. Now that is not the case a lot of the brand we have changed. Like toothpaste,soaps,hair spray,deodorant. So if you could get these item for very little or free. would you change you way of shopping?

Work at home jobs for stay at home moms
by Alicia Washington


If you are a stay at home mom with small children you may be wondering if there are any jobs that you can do from home without having to be on the phone.  The answer is yes.  When you are looking for work at home, some companies require that you have a quiet home environment to be able to successfully conduct your task or assignment.  But that is almost impossible when you have small children or a newborn baby.  They only way to get around this would be to work when they are asleep or have someone else watch them.  If you are currently facing this dilema, I have some work from home jobs that you can do that do not have these requirements.  You can even work when you want or at your own pace or schedule.


Keyforcash - This is a legit data entry company that will allow you to work when you want anytime of the day or night.  There are no schedules to keep and the work is flexible.  You can pick which assignments you want to work each day.  The pay is not around $5 to $6 per hour but it is a way for you to earn extra money from home in your spare time and still be able to tend to your children because you can log off whenever you need to and come back to your work when you are ready.  They pay every week as long as you have $30 in your account.  There is a small typing test required but if you have trouble with this I have a video that has tips to help you pass the test.


Textbroker - This company pays every week also.  You get paid to write articles online for this company.  You do not have to have any experience doing this although you will be required to take a test beforehand to check your grammar and spelling.  You pick from a pool of articles that need to be written on.  You can only pick out one article at a time and you will have 24 hours to complete it after you accept your assignment.  If you cannot complete it within that period of time, it will go back into their database.  But you can work as much or as little as you want.  They pay every Friday through your Paypal account as long as you have earned $10.  


Fiverr - There are other companies that are similar to Fiverr where you sign up to complete online gigs or tasks for someone in exchange for $5.  They do take a percentage of your earnings so you will end up earning $4 per gig.  You could offer to design a logo for someone, sing them a song, make a video, or offer to do a variety of things.  If you get enough clients you could even start your own business doing gigs for others and sell your services on your own blog or website.


Leapforce - Become a search engine evaluator.  No doubt you have experience searching the Internet already and that is what this work at home job is all about.  They need individuals to work from home part time searching the Internet and giving their feedback online.  There is a test that is involved before you are accepted.  They have a flexible schedule where you can also work when you want but you will be required to work at least 20 to 30 hours per week.  This is a legit work from home opportunity and the pay around
$14 per hour!


UserTesting - This website will pay you to test websites online.  You can work from home on a flexible schedule doing this for this company and other similar companies online.  You will answer 4 questions and get paid $10 through your paypal account for each website that you test.

An Easy Part-Time Job for Stay at Home Moms
by Alicia Washington


Do you have school aged children?  Would you like to work around 20 hours per week and make your own schedule?  Are you looking for an easy job with little to no stress?  If the answer is yes, I have an idea job for you as a part-time merchandiser for Hallmark.  Hallmark has several available positions as a retail merchandiser in cities and towns all across the US.  Here is what you need to know about this job and how to apply online.

What is a retail merchandiser?

A retail merchandiser is a person that is responsible for maintaining the shelves in the store for a particular company, that being Hallmark.  It is up to the retail merchandiser to make the display shelves look presentable, neat, up-to-date, and fully stocked.  

What does the job involve?

It will involve you traveling to a local department store or grocery store to stock and organize the greeting cards for Hallmark.  You may have to meet with the employees of the store to gather your merchandise which will be located in the back of the store.  You will have to get the boxes, unpack them and stock them on the shelves.  You will also be responsible for stocking the party ware, bags, and other items that will be displayed along with the cards.  This will involve some lifting and bending to get the boxes to the display shelf as well as some reaching to place the cards on the shelf but it is not too strenuous.  At times you may be required to take away discontinued cards but your main job will be to refill the cards and make the display shelves inviting to help the customer have an enjoyable shopping experience when looking for that special card.

What hours will I work?

This is a part time job so you will work no more than 20 hours per week unless it is during their busy or peak season and they need you to work more.  You can expect to work somewhere between 3 to 20 hours per week depending upon your schedule and availability.  

What stores will I be working at?

It will vary but you can expect to work and stock greeting cards in any store that would carry their product. Some of the stores may include:  Walgreens, Walmart, Kroger, Barnes & Noble, The Dollar Store, or any store that has a section that displays Hallmark Greeting Cards.

Are there any requirements?

You will need to be at least 18 years of age
Have reliable transportation
Have a high school diploma or GED
Be willing to work a flexible schedule including some weekends
Operate a hand-held technology device to scan cards
Have Internet access with email access

How much does this job pay?

You can expect to earn somewhere around $8 to $10 an hour.

Will this job work around my schedule?

Yes.  That is why I decided to do a review on the merchandiser jobs for Hallmark because you can work a couple of days a week for a few short hours on whatever days you pick and be home when your kids get out of school.  You can make up your own schedule to adjust to your individual needs and circumstances which makes this an idea job for stay at home moms. 

How to Apply online?

Go to their official website here to apply for the retail merchandiser jobs.  If you are interested, there are other merchandiser jobs available for you to apply for online as well as videos for you to watch detailing the duties of the job.

5 Tips to Craft the Perfect Study Space at Home

The following tips were created by WyzAnt.com with the help of private tutors all around the country: 

1. Don't make yourself at home.
Test preparation extends beyond pure mastery of the information you're being tested on. In the case of the SAT and ACT, you must prepare yourself physically for hours of continuous sitting - and you won't be sitting in a La-Z-Boy or sprawled out on a plush mattress. The age old adage "train as you fight" is applicable to standardized testing - for maximum success, try to replicate the testing environment as much as possible while studying at home. Many typical at-home distractions including music, snacks, and electronics are not permitted during examinations so you should eliminate them from your personal study space.
Quick tips:
Don't study in a reclined position or while laying down.

Only allow yourself the amount of bathroom breaks or study breaks allotted for the actual test.

If you can't study in pure silence, set your station to Classical.

2. Treat yourself.
Sometimes you need some extra incentive to help you get excited for an upcoming study session. Whether it be a professional planner, a fancy notebook, a cool pen, or a decorative calendar, even the smallest upgrade can help revamp your attitude while studying. Additionally, a notable 2011 Chicago study suggests that post-exam incentives are effective in improving test performance. Rewards that immediately followed the test were the most effective in improving performance, so time is of the essence. Apply the learnings from this report to your study sessions - with the promise of your favorite treat or a trip to the mall with a friend looming, you'll be eager to reach that light at the end of tunnel.

3. Go old school
Your smartphone is like a digital Swiss Army knife when it comes to study resources. Chances are your phone contains a thesaurus, dictionary, calculator, translator, measurement converter and more- all of which fit in the palm of your hand. While this is a space efficient solution, it may not be the most conducive to studying due to the abundance of non-academic functions your phone performs. Go back to the basics and dig out your parent's old books and resources.

Quick tips:
If you prefer the digital version for your study tools, turn your phone to airplane mode so you can't receive email and text alerts.

4. Get a timer.
Hold yourself accountable for your time spent studying. Establishing a series of smaller goals will help you stay on track and feel accomplished at the end of every session. Set a realistic timeframe for each assignment (eg: finish 15 problems in the next 2 hours), believe in yourself and your ability to accomplish this goal, and go for it. When you finish your task you'll feel great! If you don't finish, reexamine your designated timeframe or think about what you can do better next time.

5. Appeal to the senses.
Humans are equipped with five senses for a reason - use them to your advantage! Psychologists have long studied the effect that certain colors and scents can have on mood. Altering what you see and smell are two low-maintenance environmental factors you can easily customize within your study space. Each person has different preferences and responses to stimuli so identify what motivates you to study and be productive.

Quick tips:
Cool colors (blue, green, purple) are calming and may be helpful for people who are naturally more alert of anxious by nature.

Warm colors (red, yellow, orange) are more stimulating and may be better suited for people who need a little extra energy boost.

Lemon, Lavender, Jasmine, Rosemary, Cinnamon and Peppermint are recommended for boosting mood and productivity.

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.

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.

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 a 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 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 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 fullest extent of the law for everyone that works with us.

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 8am 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 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 over sees 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 to 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.

By Alicia Washington

Would you love to get paid upfront to write or blog on any subject or topic that you want to?  Are you looking for a way to earn steady income online?  Do you have access to a computer?  If so, there are many companies that will actually pay you to write and submit short articles to them right from your computer.  If you happen to be in between jobs, laid off from work, disabled, a stay at home mom or dad, a student, elderly, looking for extra income to help pay some bills or whatever your current status is, you can get paid for your content.  You can even start earning money right now today.  I will tell you exactly what you need to do to get started writing articles for legit work from home companies.

What do I need?

The only thing that you need is a computer with Internet access.  You can use a laptop as well or any other mobile device that will allow you to connect to the Internet.  You will also need an email address and possibly a Paypal account to receive your payments.

What are the requirements?

Many companies will allow you to sign up and start earning money right away for your content.  You are not required to be a professional writer or have published any content before.  There may be certain age requirements depending upon which company or companies you decide to write for but in general, you will need to be of legal age.

How much will it cost me?

Absolutely nothing!  They pay you.  You will never have to pay anything to anyone ever.  If a company ever asks you to pay BEWARE!

How much can I expect to earn?

It varies upon how much you write.  The more you write the more you will make.  If a particular article is very popular, you may even receive bonuses or additional pay for your content.  If you write for Quality Gal and they pay you $15 per article and you write 20 articles in a week, that equals out to be $300.  It depends upon the rates of each company and how much you are willing to write.

What can I write about?

For the most part, you can write on any subject or topic that you want to.  It could be about your review of the latest movies that will be featured at the box office, places you love to travel, your favorite television shows, celebrities you love or love to hate, how to find deals when you go shopping, the impact of social media, the latest buzz, or anything that you interests you.  

What kind of hours will I have to work?

This is freelance work, so you have to option to choose when you want and for how long.  You are your own boss.  Make sure that you read the requirements of each company that you sign up for because some may specify that you will need to submit a couple of articles per week but the majority will not have any restrictions on how much you write.

Can I use someone else's content?

No.  This is plagiarism.  This is forbidden and could even jeopardize your working relationship with the company.  

How long will the articles need to be?

Generally, no more than 500 words each.  If you are required to write an article for 750 words or 1,000 o more, you will get paid more money for those.

How to Get Paid Every Single Month from Home
By Alicia Washington

If you are a stay at home mom and you need reliable steady income that you can count on every single month, you may want to seriously consider starting your own blog or website.  Especially if you have very small children who are not yet in school.  Why?  It may be hard for you to commit to a work at home job if the schedule is not very flexible.  You may also need a job that you can do from home that does not require you to be on the phone because of the fact that many companies require you to have a quiet work environment.  With a baby or toddlers in the home, that can be near to impossible.  But that doesn't mean that you will not be able to earn extra money online.  Starting your own blog or website just may be the perfect solution to your dilema.

You may initially feel intimidated, overwhelmed, or even perplexed about starting your own blog or website thinking that it is just not for you.  But anybody can start their own blog or website because everyone is an expert in something.  You may be an excellent cook, or a fabulous home decorator, a bargain shopper, have great parenting tips for moms and dads, you may know a whole lot about the Internet, or know how to build things, you may even be a movie enthusiast who could recommend the latest movies to watch and why you like it.  The sky is the limit!  All it takes is just a little thought and planning and you could well be on your way to earning passive income at home every single month.  

After you have a clear vision for your blog, get started on it right away.  Start adding content (preferably on a regular basis), photos, videos, tutorials, resources, and other valuable information that you think your readers will benefit from.  The easiest way to do this is to think about what you would want to see or appreciate from a blog or website and incorporate those ideas into your own.  As time goes on, you will no doubt continue to make more and more improvements and tailor it accordingly.  Feedback from your readers will also play into how you make adjustments for your blog or website so you want to make sure that you allow for your readers to be able to give you comments that will enhance their online experience.  This is an invaluable resource for you.

Starting your own blog will not cost you anything unless you decide to pay for hosting or buy your own domain.  At Host Gator, you can get Web Hosting for only 1 Penny!  You can get a free blog from blogger or wordpress and start today.  If you get a free blog from blogger it will only cost you $10 to buy your domain name for a year from Go Daddy.  GoDaddy.com Hosting Plans - $1.99 per month for 3 months!  

Next you will want to promote your blog or website so that you will get traffic and put ads on them to earn money.  If you get enough traffic, you could eventually use this as your main source of income.  Many are doing this and you can too!  It will take some time but if you are persistent and stick with it, your hard work will pay off.  You may even earn more money than you ever imagined.  Please watch this video tutorial, if you would like to know how to put ads on your blog or website to make money online.

I started this website a little over a year ago after reading a blog where someone stated that they made more money from their blog than from writing articles online, which I was doing at the time and it inspired me to give it a try.  Even though I had many hesitations and reservations, I am glad that I did.  You can too.  If I can do it anybody can.  Please make sure that you check the pages "Build a Blog or Website or Monetize your blog or website" for even more information on this subject.

8 Reasons to Write Articles for Textbroker
by Alicia Washington

If you are currently looking for a work at home job and you want something that is legit, you may want to give Textbroker a try. Textbroker is one of the first companies that I worked for writing articles from home.  I have even posted some of earnings on the payment proof page.  Here are some of the reasons why I like this company and why I think you will like writing articles for Textbroker also.

Great for beginners

If you have never written anything before online, Textbroker is a great place to start.  Why?  Because they make it very simple for you to get started there.  They tell you exactly how many words they want you to include in each article, you will also be informed where you can go online to research information for the article, if you need to, and may times they will even give you the Title of the article.  All you have to do is fill in the content.  This makes it very easy for someone just getting started writing online.

You can work from anywhere

It can be very challenging and difficult for those who are looking to work from home but live outside the United States to find work. Textbroker is one of the few companies that allows people who live almost anywhere to work from home.  They have sites for those who live in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, France, those who speak Dutch and Spanish, and many other places.  For a link to the Textbroker sites outside the United States, please click on the links beneath my video on YouTube.

Write on any subject

There are plenty of topics for you to write articles on at Textbroker.  Many of the subjects may be ones that you are familiar with yourself.  Some of the topics include but not limited to:  weddings, traveling, shopping, health, family, finance, the economy, entertainment, and so much more.  

Flexible Schedule

For those who work outside the home or have other obligations or responsibilities, Textbroker allows you to work when you want to.
You can choose to work part time or full time, on the weekends, early in the mornings or whenever it is convenient for you.  There is no schedule to to keep or commitments to make.  You get to decide when and how long you want to work.

Non-Phone Job

For those who want to work from home but are not very fond of the idea of talking to customers over the telephone writing articles for Textbroker is a great alternative.  Because you are not required to be on the phone this eliminates the pressure of having to have a quiet work environment.  So if you have small children at home or pets, you can still work from home for Textbroker.

Pays Every Week

Most people would like to receive their earnings every week for the work they performed as opposed to bi-monthly or once a month.
You can get paid every week as long as you have accrued $10 in your account.  You will have to request your money by 11:59 p.m on Thursday to get paid.  If you wait until Friday morning, you will not receive your earnings until the following week.  Payment is through your Paypal account.

Steady Income

You can earn a steady income writing articles for Textbroker.  It is even possible for you to earn $400 a month or more.  The more you write the more you will earn.  If you set a goal to write a certain amount of articles per week at your own pace or schedule, you can meet your desired income level.  This strategy will help you to meet or even exceed your earning potential.

Earn More Money writing for Textbroker

It is really possible for you to earn even more money writing for Textbroker.  How?  By writing consistent quality articles you can increase your level to earn even more money per word.  There is also another way that you can earn more through Direct Orders that I explain in my latest video that you can watch here.
