All you have to do is Google search the word home work jobs to quickly realize you are about to face the most agonizing moments of your life. They are agonizing because the results that you will see say words like earn $50-$75 an hour, earn $200 a day, avoid scams, and so on.
So what does it all mean? Where are all the work at home jobs?
I would venture to say that 90% of the work at home job websites are just websites trying to sell you information. What happens is people in desperate situations will break down and spend their last $50 to buy a book that shows them how to do data entry at home, or type at home.
What you end up with is a book that sends you on a wild goose chase producing very little results that you can actually use to work at home.
Realistically there are all kinds of home work jobs that you can do. Here’s a short list: website design, ghost writer, graphic design, customer service, sales, software design, telemarketing, and so on. It’s not that there are not jobs you can do from home. It is just that finding the employers is difficult.
If you have desired skills, you are better off to email your resume to every company within 25 miles of where you live. Then get on the phone and start calling the ones that appeal to you.
It is becoming more commonplace for companies to ask their employees to work at home. Many times this is on a commission basis. You get to stay at home and work, the companies pay you for the work that you do, and it is a win-win situation.
The real savings to many businesses are that they no longer have to pay for your benefits like vacation days, retirement plan, and so on. Your real benefit is you do not have to commute back and forth to work everyday.
One other home work job you should not discount is starting your own home business combining the Internet with affiliate marketing and blogging. This is a quick way for you to get started in a business of your own and control your own schedule.
Although you are not guaranteed any specific income at first, you can develop this into the most desirable and profitable work you will ever do at home.
In summary, do not pay any for a list of employers looking to hirer workers. Contact businesses in your area by picking up the phone and calling them. Or better yet, start your own home business, combining blogging and affiliate marketing online to create more money than you have ever made in your life.
