Kristi is sharing creative ways to make money online.
In most parts of the country the job market is a little scarce. In fact for some it has been downright impossible to find a job. There are also mothers who stay home with children but wouldn't mind earning a little extra money from home.
When you hear about making money from home most people instantly think a scam is involved. I'll be a honest, a lot of work at home jobs are scams but there are just as many out there that are legitimate opportunities. I've worked at home since 2005 and I'm here to tell you that making money from home is possible! I'm also going to share some of my favorite companies that hire from home and some creative ways to make money online.
Creative Ways to Make Money Online
You don't have to have a degree in English or journalism to make money writing online. There are several companies that hire writers to put together short articles. Some of my favorite places are Text Broker, Word Gigs and Fiverr. These jobs are not going to make you rich but you can earn several hundred per month working when you want and choosing the type of work you want to take on. This is a great way to make money for stay at home parents and college students.
Virtual Assistants are in demand! More and more people are running companies from a home office and need a virtual assistant to help them with daily job duties. Coming across a virtual assistant position can be a little difficult but don't hesitate to look on Craigslist, Mturk and my all time favorite is Fancy Hands! Fancy Hands is a great way to get your foot into the virtual workforce. Once hired on you will pick and choose what tasks you are interested in completing and you are paid on a per task basis. You can earn between $100 and $1000 per month depending on how many hours you want to work and how much work is available.
Are you great with people? If so working as a virtual customer service representative might be the right gig for you. This position isn't going to be as flexible as the ones listed before but the pay is usually better. Several fortune 500 companies hire customer service reps including Apple! If you are interested in applying to work as a customer service rep, I recommend the following companies.
If you are interested in finding more jobs from home, I highly suggest joining the free forum at Work Place Like Home and looking over the job leads on Rat Race Rebellion. You will find writing jobs, virtual teaching jobs, transcription, medical jobs and much more!
Anytime you are looking for an at home job please keep in mind that you will come across scammers. In order to avoid never pay for a job! You might have to pay for a background check but that is it. If it feels to good to be true, please don't sign up if money is involved.
