10 Best Ways to Make Money from Home (Legitimate)

By Suzanne Kearns

woman work homeWith job postings still scarce, job security dissipating, and wages seemingly stagnant at best, many people are trying to establish some security by creating multiple streams of income. It’s a smart strategy, but if you have trouble leaving your home or primary position to get to a second job, you’ll find yourself frustrated and stressed out.

Perhaps you’re raising kids and you’re committed to not using daycare. Maybe you’re a little older and can’t commit to a full-time job. Or you might be injured or disabled, making it difficult for you to leave your home each day. Whatever your reason is, if you’re stuck at home most of the day, you’ve probably thought about the income you could be making by taking a work-from-home job or running your own business.

Good news: There are plenty of legitimate ways to earn extra money sitting right where you are right now. Some of them involve starting your own small business, while others mean working for someone else using your home as an office.

These endeavors aren’t without traps and challenges, though, so before we take a look at some legitimate ways to make money from your home, let’s review a few things that you should avoid. Unfortunately, if you want to earn an honest living from home, you’re also a common target of scammers, especially in these economically tough times. But if you keep these simple rules in mind, you won’t become a victim of one of the many work from home scams.

Money Scams to Avoid

1. Requests for Money

Sure, you might expect some legitimate costs to be associated with starting a new business, like business licenses, permits, materials, or even some advertising or marketing fees.

You should never have to pay someone for the privilege of selling their product for them, but that’s just what scammers tell their marks. They trick people into paying for worthless information about how to run a business or for substandard materials to use in creating a product.

Some scams might involve asking you to pay for a “training” book or CD that explains how to make money in a certain business. Others charge for supposedly “exclusive” products that you’re supposed to sell at a premium. Avoid both of these scenarios. Remember, you should never have to pay to get a job. And if someone asks you to, you can be sure that it’s a scam.

2. Get Rich Schemes

Get-rich-quick schemes get only one person rich: the schemer. Not you. Don’t be that con artist’s next victim. If you are willing to put in the time and effort, you will have the opportunity to build a viable business or become a trusted home worker in a great business.

But if you’re looking for easy money, you’ll likely just get stuck with a lot of bills and worthless information. When websites run promotions that promise that you’ll make thousands a week with no experience and very little time, you can bet your bottom dollar that they’ll be in your wallet before you can ask the first question.

3. Offers That Are Too Good to Be True

You might be desperate for work, but don’t necessarily jump at an opportunity that sounds too good to be true. In my article about common Craigslist scams, I wrote about fake employers who “hire” new employees, then “accidentally” send them too much pay. They’ll ask their victims to wire back the difference, but a few weeks later, when the bank discovers that the initial check is a fraud, the “employee” is on the hook for hundreds, sometimes even thousands of dollars. If a job offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

These three points may seem like common sense, but the truth is that the people who run these scams are very good at what they do. They’ve been able to deceive many intelligent people because they present their “opportunities” so well that almost anyone will believe them. When you’re looking for a new job or extra income, it’s easy to get lulled in to a comfort zone where they can take advantage of you. Keep your guard up – always.

10 Legitimate Ways to Make Money from Home

Now that we’ve talked about the things you should avoid, let’s look at a few real ways you can work from your home and make the extra cash that you and your family need.

1. Freelance Writing: Sell Your Words

I may as well start with something I know well. When I started out as a freelance writer 20 years ago, things were very different. I wrote mostly for magazines, and I had to rely on snail mail to send out drafts and queries. I’d wait weeks for a response from my editors. Not many people had the patience for it, and few stuck around long enough to ever start earning a real income from it.

But the Internet has changed everything. Today, you can decide to become a freelance writer and, if you’re fortunate, get an assignment that very same day. Obviously, the better your skills and training are, the better your projects and freelance writing rates will be.

Today’s freelance writers can choose from a variety of markets. You can write for magazines, either online or in print. You can blog by setting up your own site, or by writing for someone else’s. The market for new articles on the Internet is vast, and there’s plenty of work to go around.

Additionally, book publishers are always looking for the next big book. People need sales letters, white papers, website copy, and e-books. In other words, there’s an ocean of work to do, and if you’re an ambitious writer, you can dive in and profit.

If you want to work from home as a freelance writer, consider this checklist before you get started:

  • Samples. You’ll need some samples before you can really begin marketing yourself. Figure out which market you want to approach first, and then find or create some related samples. For instance, if you want to try your hand at blogging, study some successful blogs, and then write a few posts of your own to use as samples. Do this for any and every market you’d want to write for.
  • Tools. You don’t need much to work as a home-based freelance writer, but there are some tools that you must have. The most important will be your computer. Get the fastest Internet access that you can afford. It doesn’t matter what kind of computer you get. Just make sure you’re comfortable enough to spend a lot of time with it. Most clients will request that you submit your work as a Microsoft Word document, so make sure that whatever programs you use are compatible. In addition, because you’ll be spending so much time at the computer, make sure that you have a good work area with proper lighting. Some clients will want to be able to reach you by phone or Skype, so have both set up and accessible. You’ll need an invoicing program, such as Freshbooks, and a good bookkeeping system to keep track of sales, orders, and accounts receivables.
  • Job Boards. When you’re first starting out, you’ll have to go looking for work, and the best place to do that is on one of the online job boards. Places like Guru, Elance, Freelancer, and oDesk are today’s writers’ best friends. They allow individuals and businesses to post projects, and freelancers to bid on them. Take a look around the sites, sign up for the free access in the beginning, and then begin to place bids on the projects that interest you. It will take some trial and error to find your groove, but once you do, the jobs will start to roll in.
  • Persistence and Commitment. You’ll need to have a good amount of persistence while pursuing freelance writing gigs. This business is subjective, and while one person may love your writing, another may not. Do your best to always produce good, solid copy and hold on to your commitment to do the best you can for your clients. Just by committing to do those two things, you’ll be miles ahead of your competition.

2. Classes: Sell Your Knowledge

Another great way to earn money from your home office is to sell your skills or knowledge by teaching classes. For instance, if you’re an exercise guru, you might start an exercise class in a large spacious area in your home. People are willing to pay to learn about many fields of knowledge, from cooking and gardening to soap or candle making. Playing a musical instrument, child birthing, dancing, dog training, yoga, and even foreign languages are all great topics for expert classes.

The key is to make the class sound unique and irresistible. Don’t just teach a cooking class; come up with specialty cooking classes. You might teach a class on how to make artesian breads, or cinnamon rolls that rival Cinnabon. The possibilities are endless, and if you consistently offer educational and fun classes, you’ll have people signing up over and over again.

But being successful at hosting your own classes requires some serious planning and attention to detail. Here is an outline of the things you’ll have to consider:

  • Your Idea. It’s not enough to say that you’re going to offer an exercise classes. The people considering your classes will want to know exactly what they are going to get for their money, and it will be up to you to explain it concisely and effectively. Understand that you’re basically giving a sales pitch to potential attendees. You’ll have to really narrow down your topic.
  • Your Schedule. Decide in advance how often you want to teach your class, and what times will work for you. If you’re teaching a foreign language, you will want to offer structured classes that meet at the same time every week. But if you intend to offer cooking classes, where one lesson won’t run into another, you can be a little more flexible.
    • Remember that you’re making a commitment that will last weeks or months, and you won’t want to end up canceling classes. Pick a schedule that you can keep.
    • Furthermore, carefully consider your likely attendees, and what schedule would be attractive to them. For example, if you’re planning on teaching a tutoring class, you obviously couldn’t schedule it during school hours. Likewise, a class aimed at mothers of young children will either have to include babysitting services or be scheduled at night, when they’re more likely to have help with the kids. Find the delicate balance of times that fit your prospective students’ schedules as well as your own.
  • Your Price. When establishing a price for your classes, start by calling around and finding out what other choices your clients have. If you plan to offer cooking classes, call some commercial establishments and other in-home teachers. Compare your own talent and experience to what they’re offering, and set a price accordingly. You should always come in a little lower than classes offered by commercial establishments as that will be one of your selling points: expert information for less money.
  • Your Deals. In addition to establishing a per-class price, also offer packages to entice people to sign up for more than one class. For example, if you intend to host classes on making soap, offer the classes individually, as well as in a group. Someone could take a class learning how to use fresh flowers in homemade soap, or they could buy a bundle that teaches them how to use those, fresh herbs, and plastic toys for kid’s soap. However you decide to price your classes, remember that the buyer will want to feel like they’re getting a lot for their money. If you can provide that in a fun atmosphere, they’ll likely be back time and time again – and they’ll bring friends.
  • Your Ads. The key to success will be in your ability to get the word out about your classes. Word of mouth will play an important role in your marketing efforts because taking classes is something that friends like to do together. Don’t just rely on friends and family, though. Post fliers in supermarkets, churches, and school bulletin boards. You’ll definitely want to have an online presence so people who are searching your area for such classes will be able to find you. You can establish one by creating a website, and then using digital media to spread your message. And don’t forget your neighborhood as a source of business. Take some time to visit your neighbors, even if you just visit one block a day, and tell them about your new business.

3. Bed and Breakfast: Sell Space in Your Home

If you have a spare bedroom and bathroom, and a high tolerance for other people being in your home, you may be able to make money from home by hosting people in your home. Overnight travelers are always looking for a comfortable bed and breakfast, especially since frequent travelers are often weary of hotels and motels.

Your home is certainly more attractive than the mainstream sterile environments and run of the mill decor. Savvy homeowners have been taking advantage of their spare space, and they’re making money by offering travelers a one of a kind experience in a warm, friendly environment.

The best part is that people who use bed and breakfasts are more likely to pay more for the experience. The challenge is that there’s a lot of competition in this field, so if you think earning money this way is right for you, you’ll have to set up your home in a way that makes for a memorable experience for guests. Here’s a checklist to get you started:

  • Location. The most successful bed and breakfasts are those that are convenient to airports, historic parts of town, or other tourist attractions. That’s because there are two types of guests who tend to frequent B&B’s: business travelers who are tired of sterile hotel rooms, and families looking for a unique experience. That’s not to say that you can’t develop a successful B&B if your home isn’t located in the perfect spot, but you might have to work harder to make it a success if it isn’t.
  • Comfort. Perhaps the biggest thing that you’ll need to do in order to create a successful B&B is to make sure that your guests are as comfortable as they can be. Remember, they’re paying more for the experience of being comfortable away from home. As a trial, spend a night in the room in your house that you intend to rent and view things from a guest’s point of view. Is the temperature comfortable? Is the bath in the room, or at least a comfortable distance away while still being private? Is the bed soft and inviting? The pillows? Is the bedroom interior design, including colors, soothing? Can you hear household noises, or do you feel that you’re in a world of your own? All of these are important questions to ask yourself, but the answers will determine whether or not your guests recommend your place, or come back for another stay. Think about all the minor inconveniences and discomforts that you’ve just gotten used to over the years, and remember that a paying guest might not tolerate those problems for a night. You may need to spend a little money to fix these issues.
  • Food. The second word in “Bed and Breakfast” is just as important as the first. Some B&Bs have tried to serve their guests muffins, juice, and coffee in the mornings, but the most successful hosts understand that the breakfast they serve will make a lasting impression on their guests. You can get creative and serve the type of breakfast traditional for the area that you’re in. For instance, if your home is located in the South, then eggs, grits, and biscuits may go over well, while Southwest guests may appreciate a traditional Tex-Mex meal. Whatever you decide, make it memorable and make sure that your guests feel welcome and appreciated. Make it memorable, and they’ll spread the word for you.
  • Service. Another key aspect of successful B&Bs is the level of service that the hosts provide. You’re not just offering room and board, but an experience. If they need help planning a day seeing the sites, offer to sit down with them and help them plan their itinerary. If a businessperson needs copies for a presentation, offer to go and make them. Remember, your job as host will be to make your guests’ stays as comfortable and pleasurable as possible. If you succeed, they’ll remember you the next time they travel through your town.
  • Advertising. You won’t have any quests until you get the word around about your room. Start locally by putting a sign in your front yard and spreading the word through friends and family. Next, build a small website and make sure that you attract the search engine spiders by using the keywords people would likely search for when looking for a place to stay in your area. In addition, there are sites that specialize in promoting specific areas and their attractions, such as BedandBreakfast.com and Airbnb - your Bed and Breakfast should be listed there.

4. Farmers’ Market: Sell Your Produce and Gourmet Foods

Every Saturday I visit the local farmers’ market, and every time I’m amazed at how wonderful their fruits and vegetables look compared to the choices in the grocery store.

While I’m a gardener too, I’ve never quite been able to grow such fantastic looking produce. If you’re blessed with a greener thumb than mine and you’re growing mass quantities of fruits, vegetables, or herbs, you just may be able to use those skills to earn some extra income.

Farmers’ markets are rapidly becoming the go-to places for people who want to eat fresh, wholesome foods. Local and organic both sounds great to buyers, and you’re not just limited to selling fruits and vegetables. Just yesterday I bought fresh homemade goat cheese and a roasted tomato pesto that almost brought me to tears.

You’d do most of your work in a home garden, but you’ll have to spend your weekends away from home. If you love the idea of selling your home-grown produce, but can’t swing being out of the house on weekends, consider selling to friends, family, and neighbors instead. Almost everyone prefers the taste of a fresh picked tomato to a store bought one.

While this is a great way to earn extra money doing what you love, you’ll need to keep a few things in mind before you get started:

  • Selection. Lots of people will be selling produce, so if you want to be a success, you’ll have to make yours stand out. You might try selling some rare vegetables or hard-to-find herbs, or you might decide to include a special recipe with every variety.
  • License. As long as you’re only selling fresh produce, you don’t need a special license. But if you plan to sell gourmet foods, you’ll have to call your local health department and find out the regulations in your area.
  • Rules. All markets have different rules that every vendor must follow. You’ll have to file an application with the market for permission to sell your product. Contact the market manager and ask how you can get started.
  • Display. Just as in any retail operation, the way you display your wares will greatly impact your sales. Produce should be placed underneath a cover to protect it from the sun, but be sure to allow at least seven feet of head room. Display your prices prominently, and clearly identify the things that make your product special. Personalize your stand with signs to inform your customers.
  • Tools. Don’t forget that you’ll need a scale if you sell by the pound, a cash box to organize your income, and bags or boxes so your customers can easily transport your products home.

5. Crafts and Art: Sell Your Creativity

If you have a knack for creating beautiful things, then you were born at the right time to make some serious income from home. The growing trend for vintage and homemade products shows no signs of stopping. Plus, the Internet is chock full of well-known outlets for such wares.

Etsy, for example, is one of the fastest growing sites that gives artists a chance to sell items at a fair price. The site boasts over 40 categories, from gifts to clothes to edibles, with thousands of listings. And the price is right; you can get your own site connected to Etsy for just 20 cents per listing.

Selling on Etsy and similar sites, however, has become an art form itself, and finding success in these marketplaces takes a lot of work and planning. Your art is already a full-time job, but you’ll need to devote plenty of time to being a smart businessperson too. Here are some guidelines to getting started:

  • Research. You need to know what others are selling before you decide what wares you will offer. Lots of people sell handmade items, but those who work hard to make their items unique in some way are the ones who truly stand out. After you’ve decided on a product, check out the other sellers on Etsy and find what they’re offering, and then figure out how you can do it differently.
  • Commit. People who run successful shops on Etsy say that they do way more than create. They pass out business cards everywhere they go, they blog about their site, and spend all of their free time trying to think of new ways to promote it. In other words, to truly be a success, you have to treat it like a full-time job.
  • Photographs. Because your customers won’t be able to touch or hold your items, you need to give them as much of a visual feel for the products as you can. You’ll do it with photographs – but not just any photos. They have to be pleasing to the eye and make the item look fantastic. You’ll have to learn the art of photography, and if you can’t get the hang of it, you’ll have to hire someone to do it for you. Yes, it’s that important.
  • Selection. One of the keys to success on Etsy is selection, according to industry insiders. In fact, the goal of most serious shop owners is to have at least 200 items for sale. If you’re creating all of those items yourself, that’s a pretty big time commitment. But the more options you give to your customers, the higher the chances that you’ll make a sale.
  • Mentorship. With sites like Etsy, it simply doesn’t make sense to reinvent the wheel when opening a shop. Instead, look to others who have been down the path and have learned the hard way what to do – and what not to do. Blogs like Handmadeology and EverythingEtsy.com offer hints and guidance for artists just looking to get started in this profitable home-based business.

6. Call Centers: Sell Your Time and Voice

If you have a great telephone voice, an ability to organize information quickly, and a quiet place in your home to work, you could make money working for a call center.

What is it exactly? Call centers cater to businesses that don’t have someone to answer their phones 24 hours a day. The calls are routed to a call center, and then sent out to individuals who work from their homes. These workers are equipped with computers and software to be able to answer customer’s questions.

The average pay for these jobs is about $9 per hour, and some companies offer health, dental, even matching 401k plans for their employees. Here are a few characteristics and supplies you should have:

  • Diligence. In this industry, the line between scams and honest businesses is blurry, so you need to do your homework before accepting a position. Call the Better Business Bureau in your area to find out if there have been any complaints filed against the company, and do an online search on their name. Alpine Access is a well-respected company in the field, and Call Center Careers is a great place to look for legitimate call centers looking to hire.
  • Equipment. You’ll likely have to invest in your own equipment before starting work with a call company. You will need a computer that meets the call center’s guidelines, earphones, an Internet connection, and a landline phone to do the work required. If you don’t already have the equipment, most companies won’t even consider your application.
  • Grace. You’ll receive a lot of calls, and you must have the ability to handle them all smoothly. This means that you should have a personality that can multi-task without becoming flustered.
  • Ambition. If you prove yourself a good employee, there are opportunities for advancement in the ranks of call center employees. You won’t even have to give up working from home to take a promotion; team leaders, managers, and account managers can all work from home.

7. Sewing and Alterations: Sell Your Handiwork

If you have sewing skills, you have a wide range of options. Just think for a moment about everything service you can provide if you have those skills. You can do alterations and design, and you can make wedding clothes, custom-fit clothes, and special attire.

You can make totes and bags, custom bedding, draperies, and upholstery cushions. You can go so far as to sew the special canvas cushions needed for boats and yachts, or commercial needs like booth and chair cushions.

In short, if you have sewing skills, you’re in demand. But there is more to sewing from your home for money than just hanging out a shingle. Let’s take a look at some of the issues you’ll face:

  • Equipment. The largest, and most important, piece of equipment that you’ll need is a high-quality sewing machine. They can range in price from about $2,000 up to $6,000, and you’ll want the best one that you can afford. Other pieces of equipment will vary, depending on what you want to specialize in. For instance, if you intend to make custom draperies, you’ll need a serger, and a drapery steamer.
  • Skill. If you’re going to sew for other people, your skills need to be far above average. If you’re a beginner or an average seamstress, wait until you improve their skills before attempting to earn money in this type of business. If people are going to trust their wedding dresses or their favorite sports jacket to you, you must be able to handle them with care and the utmost skill.
  • Zoning. Because you’ll likely have a lot of customers in and out of your home, you should check with your local authorities to determine whether or not you need to be zoned for this type of business.
  • Advertising. You’ll need to get the word out about your sewing business, and one of the best places to start is with your friends and neighbors. Make sure they are all aware of your services and are willing to pass around your business cards. In addition, you should put up fliers in local fabric stores and get to know the employees so that if someone asks, they’ll be able to refer you. Any business needs a website, and yours will be no exception; you can put up a simple one that outlines what you do, and tells the reader what kinds of prices to expect. Finally, by joining organizations like the American Sewing Guild, you’ll be able to stay in touch with others who are doing the same thing as you.

8. Used Book Sales: Sell Your Old Paperbacks

I was working at an estate sale the other weekend, and a woman came in and asked if there were any books for sale. After I pointed out the collection of books to her, she began to scan them all with a portable bar code scanner. My curiosity got the best of me and so I asked her what she was doing.

She explained that she buys used books from garage and estate sales, and then turns around and sells the books for cash on sites like Amazon, Ebay, Half.com and AbeBooks. She uses the scanner to determine how long it usually takes for a specific book to sell and how much it sells for. She told me that she makes a full-time living doing this.

So, I got the scoop on how to run a business of this type. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Finances. You need to be good at quick math and be able to make quick decisions. You have to be careful how much you pay for a book, and then keep careful track of the expenses involved in selling it. For instance, when you sell on a website, they’ll take a commission from the sale. In addition, some sites, like eBay, will charge you a listing fee for each book. If you request that your money be deposited via PayPal, then you’ll be charged a transaction fee per book. If you’re not careful, the fees will quickly negate your profits.
  • Storage. Depending on how big your business gets, you’ll need ample room to store the books. You can’t get lazy or disorganized about it, either. You have to keep the books in good condition, and you need to be able to find them when someone wants them. For instance, if you list a book in “like new” condition, and then the pages get smashed during storage, you’ll be in a bind if someone places an order before you realize what happened.
  • Shipping. You will only have a few days to ship a book after it sells, and even less time if you agree to include two-day or overnight shipping as part of your options. And since you’ll want to save as much as you can on the shipping, you’ll have to devise a plan. Many people set aside specific days for shipping – say 3 days a week – and then make one big trip to the post office. As long as there isn’t anything else in the package, you can send books via media mail, which is the least expensive option. Finally, your books will need to be packaged in a way that they won’t get damaged in transit.
  • Ratings. Whenever someone buys a book from you, they will have the opportunity to give the transaction a rating. This is when they’ll tell other potential buyers whether the book was in the condition that you described, whether it was mailed on time, and if your communications were pleasant and helpful. One bad rating can hamper sales, and a couple of them can downright stop them. Excel at customer service and your ratings will help your company grow.
  • Current. It’s important that you stay current in this ever-changing business. You can do so by following some well-known blogs about the topic such as Sell Your Books Online.

9. Consulting: Sell Your Knowledge

Consultants offer their services or advice for a fee. For instance, you may help a new non-profit organization develop a plan for fundraising, and then oversee the process. Or you may help a new company garner media attention by writing press releases and then distributing them to the proper channels.

Individuals use consultants, too. Some people use consultants for tax or financial advice, while others may pay a consultant to teach them how to set up and maintain a garden.

Basically, if you have proven skills in an area, you can market yourself as a consultant and provide your services from home. Breaking in isn’t always easy, though, so consider these topics:

  • Experience. Whatever area you want to work in as a consultant, you must be able to show clients that you’re qualified to advise them. If there are organizations related to your field, make sure that you’re a member of them. Similarly, if you can take a course and become certified or registered in your field, do it and then add that to your credentials.
  • Work Space. When acting as a consultant, the probability is high that clients will be visiting your home office. Therefore, you need to have a neat, professional home office that is welcoming to guests. Try to locate your work space in a quiet, even secluded, area of the house. A converted garage space with its own entrance works well, giving you a private space for work and adding to your credibility.
  • Marketing. When operating as a consultant, you won’t necessarily be marketing your company; you’ll be marketing yourself. You’ll have to “package” yourself in a way that makes people trust you. For instance, if you’re marketing yourself as a financial consultant, ask yourself why someone would trust you with their life savings, and then figure out a way to convey that to potential clients. It might be in the form of a brochure, a portfolio, a sales letter, or all three.

To get the word out about your services, you’ll have to talk to a lot of people. Attend functions where your typical client would hang out. That may mean the local agricultural department’s classes if you’re a gardening consultant, or Chamber of Commerce meetings if you’re a business consultant.

10. Medical Transcription: Sell Your Computer Skills

If you have great computer skills and can type quickly, you might be able to work from home doing medical transcription.

Doctors who make audio notes on patients need someone to transcribe their notes to put them in patient files, but most doctors don’t want to pay a full-time transcriptionist. Instead, they farm out the work, and it’s a great job for good typists with a good working knowledge of health topics and medical jargon.

That means you need to come with a lot of knowledge and follow this checklist:

  • Training. To get a gig as a medical transcriptionist, you will have to take specific training. You will have to become proficient in medical terminology, and the best way to do that is to take additional courses in that area. The average course lasts from 9 to 18 months and costs about $3,000. Financial aid programs can help pay for your tuition.
  • Breaking In. Many people find that once they’ve completed their training, getting their first job can be difficult because many companies require a minimum of two years experience. Many newbies start out by volunteering to get some history under their belt. It’s not impossible to land a job fresh out of school, but you’ll need diligence and persistence, and probably a little luck.
  • Equipment. When you accept a job with a reputable company, they will provide you with all the equipment you need, except for high-speed Internet. Beware of companies that require you to supply your own equipment; that’s a sign of a possible scam.
  • Socialize. Especially when you’re getting started, you need to establish contacts who are already immersed in the business. They can act as mentors, keep you up to date on industry changes, and even help you land your first or subsequent job. Look for the local chapter of the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI) in your area and join.

Final Word

For some people, work just has to be in an office, factory, store, or any other environment that’s separate from home. Even a second job would have to be in a separate place. For others, a home office is a welcome place for a secondary or even a primary job. If you’re one of those people, you have some unique opportunities, but you also have some very particular challenges of working from home.

Make sure you set a smart schedule that lets you diligently focus on your work, without throwing the rest of your life out of balance. And make sure you always keep your guard up for scams and cheats. When you’re on your own, you might have a little more freedom with your schedule, but you lose the sense of protection that a company can provide.

These ideas are just ten of the great ones for earning money from your own home. While employment opportunities are getting scarcer, isn’t it good to know that your ability to take things into your own hands is getting greater?

Do you make money working from home? What other ideas have you been able to come up with?

    If I find out about event (concerts, shows, sports) ticket pre-sales, I buy the best tickets available and then resell them for a profit to those who missed the pre-sale. It really depends on the event, but only A list events have pre-sales. Most A list events sell out, so if you bought front row tickets during pre-sale, then you have something someone else wants and is willing to pay a premium for. You get your money back and you make a profit.

  • Susan

    This is a great article that is full of good, sound, recommendations – thanks for posting. One slight change I would add is that many legitimate medical transcription employers DO require that you furnish your own computer – that is not an indicator of a scam, so would like people to be aware of fact and not worry if they are asked to have their computer, foot pedal, headset and reference books or online references. Those are common and necessary tools of the trade.

    another way to make money isto invest $5!!I finally decided to read one of these articles in an internet
    newsgroup describing how to make $50,000.00 in only one month from a
    $5.00 investment.

    Of course I thought this was ridiculous ,or some type of pyramid. Im
    the type of person whos tried all online surveys and found out that
    doesn’t work. Besides, what’s $5.00.

    Markus Valppu says he made $57,883 in four weeks. Dave Manning
    he made $53,664 in the same amount of time. Dan Shepstone says it was
    only $17,000 for him. Do I know these folks? No, but when I read how
    they say they did it, it made sense to me. Enough sense that I’m
    taking a similar chance with $5 of my own money. Not a big chance, I
    admit–but one with incredible potential, because $5 is all anyone
    ever invests in this system. Period. That’s all Markus, Dave, or Dan
    invested, yet their $5 netted them tens of thousands of dollars each,
    in a safe, legal, completely legitimate way.

    Here’s how it works in 3 easy steps:
    STEP 1. Invest your $5 by writing your name and address on five
    separate pieces of paper along with the words: “PLEASE ADD ME TO
    MAILING LIST.” (In this way, you’re not just sending a dollar to
    someone; you’re paying for a legitimate service.) Fold a $1 bill,
    money order, or bank note inside each paper, and mail them by
    U. S. Mail to the following five addresses:
    1)- Heath Ward P.O.Box 2027 Dodge City, Ks 67801
    2)- Matthew Kulbacki 1025 12th street Golden, CO, USA 80401
    3)- Nikki Robinson 2324 Frederick Place Valdosta, GA 31602
    4)- Ross O’Brien 1040 pine lane Lafayette,CA 94549
    5)- Brooke Frieman 2451 N. Rainbow blvd. Unit 89108, Las Vegas, NV
    STEP 2. Now remove the top name from the list, and move the other
    names up. This way, #5 becomes #4 and so on. Put your name in as the
    fifth one on the list.
    STEP 3. Post the article to at least 200 newsgroups. There are at
    least 17000 newsgroups at any given moment in time. Try posting to as
    many newsgroups as you can. Remember the more groups you post to, the
    more people will see your article and send you cash!
    STEP 4. You are now in business for yourself, and should start
    returns within 7 to 14 days! Remember, the internet is new and huge.
    There is no way you can lose.

    Now here is how and why this system works: Out of every block of
    posts I made, I got back 5 responses. Yes, that’s right, only 5. You
    make $5.00 in cash, not checks or money orders, but real cash with
    your name at #5. Each additional person who sent you $1.00 now also
    makes 200 additional postings with your name at #4, 1000 postings. On
    average then, 50 people will send you $1.00 with your name at
    #4,….$50.00 in your pocket! Now these 50 new people will make 200
    postings each with your name at #3 or 10,000 postings. Average
    500 people= $500. They make 200 postings each with your name at #2=
    100,000 postings=5000 returns at $1.00 each=$5,000.00 in cash!
    Finally, 5,000 people make 200 postings each with your name at #1 and
    you get a return of $50,000 before your name drops off the list. And
    that’s only if everyone down the line makes only 200 postings each!
    Your total income for this one cycle is $55,000. From time to time
    when you see your name is no longer on the list, you take the latest
    posting you can find and start all over again. The end result
    on you. You must follow through and repost this article everywhere
    can think of. The more postings you make, the more cash ends up in
    your mailbox. It’s too easy and too cheap to pass up!!!

    So that’s it. Pretty simple sounding stuff, huh? But believe me, it
    works. There are millions of people surfing the net every day, all
    day, all over the world. And 100,000 new people get on the net every
    day. You know that, you’ve seen the stories in the paper. So, my
    friend, read and follow the simple instructions and play fair. That’s
    the key, and that’s all there is to it. Print this out right now so
    you can refer back to this article easily. Try to keep an eye on all
    the postings you made to make sure everyone is playing fairly. You
    know where your name should be. If you’re really not sure or still
    think this can’t be for real, then don’t do it. But please print this
    article and pass it along to someone you know who really needs the
    money, and see what happens.

      I’d be afraid to try this, it sounds like a chain letter or mail fraud. I wish I could find out if it was legal. The principal makes sense on paper. I see there are two of these in here. Anyone know of anyone who has actually done this?

      • http://www.facebook.com/evangeline.williams.792 Evangeline Williams

        I am also afraid this is illegal and I do not like the fact of my name and address being sent to thousands of people I do not know. Not very good for security purposes. I do say it is a good idea to try with friends and family. Also, change it up to try with your child’s school and instead of money do pencils, and school supplies or gift cards throughout the school or just classroom and all the children can benefit with school supplies they need. I like the concept but I am very protective of what information goes out their for my family. Be creative and safe. This will be a fun activity to bring up with the school board and help the children out. Thanks for the idea.

    • Nashmj

      1) This is a chain letter, and it’s illegal.

        I wish I could disconnect my conscience as some online scams do. Imagine leading ignorant people to the last and final step of financial success and independence. It is right there in front of them, only one more door to go through and it will only cost them fifty dollars.
        This is such a high and wise way to make the mula. To think that I could easily make thousands of dollars a day by sneakily winning someone’s confidence and then taking their money, not by force, but by the oozy, drippy, promises that come from my lying mouth. Wow! I would sure feel like a king if I had the ability to manipulate people like that. Where do I sign up? It seems to be the way to the top anymore around here.

  • diegoazteca

    Take five minutes to read this and it WILL change your life.

    I just read an article in an internet newsgroup describing how to make $50,000.00 in only one month from a $5.00 investment.

    Of course I thought this was rediculous ,or some type of pyramid. I talked it over with my family, an attorney, and my friends, and they all agreed it was some sort of scam.I hate scams because usually someone gets burned, and I didn’t want it to be me! I blew it off for a few weeks then saw another one in a newsgroup I go to alot and thought, “Maybe this is legitimate!”. Besides, whats $5.00 , I spend more than that in the morning on my way to work on coffee and cigs for the day.

    Well, two weeks later,I began recieving money in the mail! I couldn’t believe it! Not just a little , I mean big bucks! At first only a few hundred dollars, then a week later, a couple of thousand , then BOOM . By the end of the fourth week , I had recieved nearly $47,000.00. It came from all over the world.And every bit of it perfectly legal and on the up and up. I’ve been able to pay off all my bills and still had enough left over for a nice vacation for me and my family.

    Not only does it work for me, it works for other folks as well. Markus Valppu says he made $57,883 in four weeks. Dave Manning claims he made $53,664 in the same amount of time. Dan Shepstone says it was only $17,000 for him. Do I know these folks? No, but when I read how they say they did it, it made sense to me.

Fold a $1 bill, money order, or bank note inside each paper, and mail them by standard U. S. Mail to the following five addresses:
    1. Vic Williams 14307 Virtue Rd. Lenoir City, Tn. 37772

    2. Bill Brown 148 South Downlen #796 Beaumont, Tx. 77707

    3. Marco Monet 409 N.E. 107 St. Miami, Florida, USA 33161

    4. Alain Renaud 2638 Augustin-Cantin Montreal, QC,Canada H3K 1E1

    5. Diego Alcantar 1115 Magnolia Ave. Joliet, IL, USA 60432

    STEP 2.

    Now remove the top name from the list, and move the other names up.This way, #5 becomes #4 and so on. Put your name in as the fifth one on the list.

    STEP 3.

    Post the article to at least 200 newsgroups. There are at least 17000 newsgroups at any given moment in time. Try posting to as many newsgroups as you can.Remember the more groups you post to, the more people will see your article and send you cash!

    Have been a medical transcriptionist for over 25 years, working at home for the past 18 years. I must say it has been a great way for me to raise my children, be flexible in their school lives, and allowed me to make around 25K a year. Downside- you are alone, with usually only the voice of your physician, and many transcriptionists that I know become depressed and gain weight from staying in their chair too long and working longer hours as “the more you type, the more you make” seems to be the push. I made the decision to go back to school and am in my senior year at UA in business management and hope to work for a nonprofit organization or remain in the medical field around people for the next part of my life.

    Only out creativity limits us. I want to contribute and tell you some tips to make yourself known in your niche fast. I hope you don’t mind guys. :)

    First: look at your niche leaders on youtube and start doing some video replays on their work and possibly add some more value to their work, show some more tips and tricks and you can syphon traffic from their videos.

    The second strategy I follow is to do some profile research on facebook and find people on facebook your can network with.

    Remember that doing something together possess greater potential than doing something alone.

    Medical transcription is dying. I’ve done it for almost 20 years, most of it at home, and it has been replaced with electronic medical record. In case anyone is considering this, don’t waste your money!

    • Clay99

      Thanks for getting the word out, Reed. I am wondering if at-home call centers are on the increase or are newer technologies and robotic call centers taking over this area of the market also.

    • Extrastrong4

      Reed is absolute right!!! I wasted $3500 two years ago and still have a bitter taste in mouth.

    • RetailConsumer

      Amen. Every time I see MT listed as a viable at-home option, I feel sick. Most companies now either use voice recognition or send the work to foreign transcriptionists then expect US MTs to edit the work for what amounts to less than minimum wage.

  • banjo kid

    The web site ads would be the way to go for those who have little to offer , to have a site that people would visit is the problem though . first you need a theme and then find out all you can about a subject so that it will be informative and helpful , honesty is the best policy most people do not like being conned or lied to . If you can’t find subject matter that would not be a violation of others material or do your own material then maybe a sales job or transcription would be for you . No matter what you do be honest even if it means you may not be successful.

    • http://mydebtucation.blogspot.com/ Mario

      That’s so true. My policy is honesty first, last, and in-between, because when you’re honest, that’s successful on its own.

    Great article Suzzane, a lot of people seeking a work from home and end up losing their money on worthless opportunities and programs, i think with today’s technology and the internet, anyone can start a work from home business online and make money, blogging for example is a great way to have a small home business

    Become a reseller for domain and server hosting. This is a legitimate way to begin business relationships via computer. Also websites can be created with tools that give you all the advantages of coding – that are as easy to use a powerpoint. Write me [email protected] for more info. I would be glad to help.

    I work for a firm that sets up online businesses. 99% of them are scams. Best bet is to have someone set up your business for you then grow the business on your own.

    • Mpmorales

      And yes, that is what I do lol. As a consultant, I set people up with online businesses. Usually costs anywhere from $500-10k depending on the marketing, which is very important. Don’t expect to make thousands if you invest in a $100 website. It just takes your money, then gives them to companies like mine like leads. Skip the crap and contact your business development center.

  • stormpetrel

    BEFORE you try to operate a bed and breakfast or any other short-term rental like AirBNB in your home or apartment, please check to make sure it is allowable in your area. For example, you will need to check your rental agreement, building policies, homeowners associations or covenant rules. You will definitely need to check your zoning ordinances to see whether it is allowed on your property. You will probably need a Conditional Use Permit from your local planning/zoning office. Lastly, you would need a business license and to pay bed tax, as well as any other applicable taxes.

  • Kokoity

    I found this very useful. thanks for sharing. I’ll share as well :)

  • Foxman

    I’m surprised this wasn’t in there, but Amway is an incredible opportunity to make additional income, even replace the income of your full time job. It’s extremely simple too. All you do is change your buying habits and sell some products to people you already know. I have a lot of fun building my business, but I guess it’s not for everybody.

  • Spongebob07

    I was surprised to see medical transcribing on here. That’s what brought me to this site! I am a medical transcriptionist and have worked from my home for over 12 years as an MT. Near the end of 2010 my company lost an account that I was working on to EMR (electronic medical records), and I patiently waited months for a new account while making very little money helping to keep other accounts current. In the beginning of 2012 we got a new account that I began working on. I was making great money and then again, “bam,” talk of EMR started and then work stopped coming in. I have not had work for over four weeks (none at all this time), and therefore, I began looking on the net for other ideas to work from home.

    Unfortunately, the MT business is slowly fading. I don’t care what the “professionals” tell you, I’m in this business and have been for quite some time, and over the years I have lost work to either overseas, voice recognition, and now EMR (thank you, Obama). I would not suggest anyone waste their time or money on becoming an MT.

    I am looking into becoming a nurse now, and although that will take me four years, at least I know it’s a profession that isn’t going anywhere. I have decided I could work the 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. shift, four days a week, because those hours will work with my children’s school schedule. My youngest is now only 3 months old and will be in kindergarten in five years, so I need to keep working from home (while going to nursing school) until then.

    Good luck to the rest of you!!

    • Angewillia

      Unfortunately I agree. I’m a nurse in the EMR world and many of our doctors use Dragon or other technology that will transcribe quicker and more efficiently.

    • IheartObamaCare

      Yes, it’s a shame in 2013 we’re switching to EMR which enables records to be kept efficiently and accurately. Industries change regardless of who is in office. Brush your shoulder off, get new skills and make yourself marketable, e-hem “pull yourself up from your own bootstraps”.

    • RetailConsumer

      EMR is not a product of the Obama administration. It was a mandate enacted by George W. Bush in 2004 that all Americans should have an electronic health record in 2014. Google it.

      • AndTheRealAnswerIs

        I beg to differ. Despite 3rd party articles and propaganda outlets what they know, it was neither who came up with the idea. It was/is the NWO using both puppets to carry out a agenda. Unless and until people catch on to the fact that there is no left or right answer and it will take a independent, everything will remain as is, status qua.

        • Jamo

          I work to develop EMR software. The HITECH act is what is pushing it, most doctors offices are just getting them because they get large incentives from the government (your tax money).

          I honestly don’t think EMR’s have helped the industry at all… Most doctors offices, hospitals, chiros, mental health, etc are just to computer illiterate to make use of a powerful EMR system.

          I blame Democrats and Republicans, everyone should vote libertarian to protest government waste.

  • Kevin

    There’s only one tip to get rich and its very simple. Find people who make the money you want. Do what they do! You will realize that its not traditional, and that’s why everyone you know is broke. The day you realize the ways to earn money are not going to school and hopefully getting a job that pays you for your time. It WILL be earning residual income. Work now for something that will earn you money later without working. Only one thing you gotta do, BELIEVE YOU WILL DO IT.

    • tony

      I can point you guys in the right direction, it helps if you enjoy writing. By the way I have been scammed a lot its not good!

      The cost involved $97 dollars. (This is for online training you get to look at the first module free just provide email address)

      You don’t need your own website.

      You will need to learn basic html its not that hard

      The key to success is keyword research and the starting point, you need to know how many other sites are using your selected keyword to have a chance to rank on page one of google.

      Email me [email protected] if you don’t want to pay any money I can show you the basics it is money well spent though.

  • Tim

    If you could have joined Advacare, Amway,Herbalife or Natures Sunshine in their conseption would you? I know some people think that multi level marketing is a scam, but its not. The people that dont suceed doing it are the ones calling it a scam. My friend and I did Natures sunshine for about 4 years and were very sucessful, but it started 35 years ago. By the time we got into it it was heavily saturated and as soon as we stopped the money did. Until we found the new unsaturated MLM company that has given us finacial freedom and we built a financial platform that will last us after we quit. It is such an amazing oppertunity, I would love to share with you how we did it. I can assure you that this is not a scam in the slightest. I am a real person and if you are interested in emailing me I will tell you about it. My email is [email protected] Please just give me a shout if your interested in this oppertunity.

  • http://www.facebook.com/clint.fowler.7 Clint Fowler

    I would have to say that this article is interesting but its not the “make money” kind of article I think most are looking for. I like Tim, started a network marketing business and have been able to quit my job and I have made enough monthly income to also allow my wife to quit hers as well. Although it did take some hard work, it was very worth it. We now have the luxury to pick our kids up from school, drop them off, never miss an event and live an outstanding lifestyle. I would HIGHLY recommend this profession for anyone looking to work from home! Oh and we did this in less than 6 months so…. pretty awesome.

    A payday loan or cash advance is an unsecured, short-term cash loan to help you until your next payday. Customers choose payday advances to cover small, unexpected expenses while avoiding costly bounced-check fees and late payment penalties.

    • Charleigh

      Avoid these AT ALL COSTS!. The interest is ASTRONOMICAL. Once you get a payday loan, when the due date comes, the interest will probably be double of the loan you got! That is how they stay in business. They should be ILLEGAL. NEVER TAKE OUT A PAYDAY LOAN!

    whatever work you do at home, online or offline, you need targeted traffic to your offer. What if you promote the greatest product ever on the market, but no one out of 7 Billion people knows about it? And at the same time, other people promote Other People’s Products that are not worth even a second of your time, but those products pop up in front of you all the time! And believe it or not, worthless products are being sold and the ugly truth is that people buy them even if most of them will never use them. So what product do you have to sell? Well, don’t tell me. Just let me know if you need traffic. Yes, targeted traffic, real buyers ready to spend their $$$ for anything and buy whatever pops up in front of them. They feel like if they are not spending, they are not living. Weird, isn’t it? I know. But, out of 7 billion people around the globe, 4.5 million are YOUR TARGET. 4.5 million spend to live, can you imagine? Classified Ad Central shares 12% of this traffic. If you would like to take advantage of this sweet piece though, you have to get the link. Shoot me an email at [email protected] as you type in the subject HOOK ME UP WITH YOUR TRAFFIC, and I’ll send it to you.

    I have worked from home for the past 4 years in Melbourne and I can tell people would be over whelmed by the amount of links and information on this page. My friends recently started asking me question about how did I get started working from home and where can they go to get started. So I decided to start a free website for my friends so that I could teach them all at once how to get started making money over night and start a career working from home like I do. I have had an incredible response from all my friends. My website is direct so that it is quick to get started. You can get started straight away using the exact websites I use daily to make money working from and learn and be support by someone who has alot of experience working from home.

    oh well, i just signed in Internet Cash Commission of Sarah Frazer. I think it is scam. I paid $99 via my visa 4 days ago. While i go to something further, i saw some kind of “extra item” as they said to succeed in making money. I stopped since that step and read all info about making online. i dont want they take money from me every month for sth “extra”. i prefer to lost $99 in signing up instead of paying every month for scam. Avoid them

    • Pravin Yadur

      I have heard of those sorts before, but I believe that most users here are looking for earning money, which they do not have. So please stop giving suggestions like cash back. One who does not have money can’t spend it. And such offers are nothing but discount offers created by first raising the product prices and then reducing them by means of such fake cash back offers.

  • Annanimiss

    With so many people getting into blogging and writing e articles, how can writer’s keep content fresh? While I found your article interesting, the information seems to be widely available on most how-to sites. It just seems like everything’s been done the same way at least a dozen times. Not to mention writers now have to cater to SEO and plug ads for things that may be scams, destroying your credibility as a legitimate resource. (I’ve been victim to it more than once.) It’s a minefield. What advice can you give those of us just starting out in writing online content? If you have an article on it, please post a link. Thank you.

    I think that the easiest and fastest way to start making money online are paid online surveys.Many people think that most surveys are scams, or they are not a way to make a lot of money.But actually that is not true.You can’t become rich, but there are legit surveys that you can join and start making good money.I make $30-40/day.What I did was to join with many surveys.Then I started to complete their highest paying offers for a day.The hardest thing is to find legit surveys.The main difference between scams and legit surveys is that legit surveys are 100% free to join.If you are not sure from where to start go to:

    MyPaidSurveysBlog . Blogspot . com

    Here you will find a list of legit surveys, that you can join immediately.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for this wonderful blog, seemingly there are lot of people claiming to provide people with online jobs to do from home. In reality 98% of people advertising jobs online don’t even know how to make money only. They Just join pyramid schemes with hope of making money with them. They shows fake proofs of their earnings. I felt the victim of most of these companies that is why I decided to change my strategy of getting money online. The best way to make money online is to find yourself a mentor who is already making money online. Before you join you need to make sure that what he or she is telling you is a truth. How are you going to know that? He must have a successful team of at-least 10000 people that he already helped. Then you can start being confident to him and make money with him. This is how I managed to make money online.

  • Tie the Money Knot

    Each of us has our own unique set of experiences, with our education, work, as well as hobbies/passions. If we think creatively, there are ways that we can make extra money, particularly with classes and consulting. I’ve known a few people who have done just this, and in one case built a legitimate full-time business. And that’s not even considering bloggers :)

    Seek Jesus and HE will solve all of your problems, nothing else will. God Bless.

    • Kathy Huish

      He hasnt so far!

      • Joe Golden

        Then you have your heart in the wrong place.

        • Kathy Huish

          I was sick from the time I was born…did I sin in a previous life or something?

        • Joe Golden

          It’s not about the cards you were dealt. It’s about what you choose to do with those cards after the fact. Sure, bad things happen to good people. Sometimes it may be a punishment, sometimes it may be a lesson, and other times it might not have any thing to do with God or any thing else. Sometimes bad things just happen out of chance. But even those bad things that just happen can be used to look at who you are deep down. You can choose to fight, or to give up. You can choose to be happy any way and see the good side of things or you can choose to be so upset about it that it over whelms you. No matter what happens to you, you always have the choice to be great. And you always have the ability to ask for Gods help and to seek out Jesus. If your heart is in the right place when you do seek Jesus then you will find him. If your heart is not in the right place (maybe from being selfish or by not doing all you could to better your situation on your own, or having a bad outlook on things, or not really believing you’ll be helped when you ask for it) then you won’t get the help you’re seeking.

        • There is no god

          I thought God has a plan for everyone so if that is the case then nothing happens by chance. It is all part of his master plan. By your logic anything that’s bad that happens to people is because their heart isn’t in the right place or being selfish etc..So why do terrible things happen to all the “God fearing” folks out there? You contradict youself in your own statements to this person its quite laughable to read

  • Sara

    With all the demand out there for Spanish speakers, I’m surprised not to see information about opportunities for bilinguals. I’m Spanish and English bilingual and would like to know what opportunities are out there for someone like me, who seeks to market their language skills. I went to Uni in Mexico and I am effectively a native speaker of Spanish. I’m also an English teacher. It would be great to hear about some legitimate translation opportunities. Thanks in advance if you can help me.

  • Britt

      • Taz

        Can you send me the link for those surveys at tasneembhuiyan@gmail.com.

  • Jimmy

    Another great way to make money online are paid surveys.They pay $5-10/survey.You can make $1000/month.Here are several tips from me:

    - Never pay for surveys.There are scamers who want you to pay them.You can go to Google and type: “how to find legitimate surveys for money”, or to visit trusted surveys lists like: MyPaidSurveysBlog. Blogspot. Com .

    - Never join if you haven’t read that your personal information will not be sold on other businesses.

    - Read on the Internet what other people think about this survey panel.

    - Join many surveys.That way you will make more money.

    Hope that helps.

    • PK

      who want to spent hours to get $5. it is not worth

      • CharlieYoungpeter

        That money adds up over time, and it’s actually more than $5 an hour if you’re doing it right. I’ve been doing it for years. My husband is in the military and makes decent money, but a lot of that goes to the things we have to pay for. The money I make taking surveys goes to our “fun money”. If anybody is interested in taking surveys, I can send you links to tons of survey sites. Email me at charlieyoungpeter@live.com

  • Homework Wives

    Thanks for the great advice. When I first decided to work from home I was overwhelmed because there is so much available out there. I finally decided on freelance content writing. Initially it didn’t pay much but I did give me a means to make a decent part time income. Over time you can branch out and set your own rates. Today I’m content writing, running my website, and working on several ebooks. Writing can be profitable if you build a following and diversify

  • RC

    Why do we need to email you to get the information? You could just put the company name and/or website and/or Ph# and we could do the rest. Not quite liking that email tactic..

    • CharlieYoungpeter

      RC- Are you referring to me about the survey company links? I need people to email me to make sure they are real people that are actually interested. I can’t send a bunch of people to these survey companies that aren’t going to take it seriously because that makes me look bad. If you don’t want to email me for the links, then fine by me. It’s your money you won’t be making, not mine. :)

      • ss

        She make money by sending people to the site. Pyramid

        • CharlieYoungpeter

          It’s she makes*. I’m sorry, but typos annoy me and so do people that don’t know what they are talking about. It is not a pyramid. I give people the links to websites to make money. I’m in no way getting rich off of referring people and they aren’t getting rich by taking the surveys. It’s just a way to make a little bit of spending cash. I help people out for FREE to get started because when I started out paid to get the links. I got scammed. I don’t want others to get screwed over like I did.

        • floridagal_31

          can you please send me the links to the survey websites. I am struggling to find a job and money is so tight right now. Thanks florida_bound101013@hotmail.com
