I really need to make me some money. I have less than $20.00 to start. I would like to make some money that is legitimate.. I don't want to spend hours on the Internet. I would like to get paid without worrying about taking out my own taxes.. I am a stay at home mom whom desperately needs some luck on finding the right job. I am not good with creating websites. I am a novice when it comes to the Internet. I just need a job that will pay me by check or paypal.. I am seeking a part time job.. Whatever ideas that you have will be great. Please give me only proof of real online jobs that has worked for you.. I would like to know the ones that paid you.. My lack of trust is almost gone.. I need the real thing.. I also don't want to sell or talk to people.. No cold calling, please!!!

Hi there. I know exactly how you feel. I'm tired of trying to find a work at home job that is legitimate and getting spammed all the time with money making schemes that want you to invest a lot of time and effort and cash for no reward. Most of these schemes only make one person rich and that's the person who thought it up in the first place. Have you thought about using cash back sites when you shop online? I use some of the UK ones and, while they don't pay lots of money back, every little bit helps. I also complete surveys. Most of them don't pay much per survey but you can save the earnings up and get paid in vouchers or paypal. I also write reviews on consumer websites and get paid for them. The three that I use are epinions, dooyoo and ciao. They do pay as well. I tend to write one or two reviews a day if I can, and just post the same review on all three sites. They won't make you rich but you can make a little money from them. I use my "earnings" from these sites and save them up for christmas. I'm hoping to have a completely "free" christmas next year using the money and vouchers I earn from these sites to pay for all the presents and everything else! I know that this is not probably much help to you but it's what I do to get a little extra money. I'm in the same boat as you, looking for a job that means I can still be a stay at home mother and care for my family and still earn a decent wage. Good luck, I really hope something comes your way soon x

Okay I understand that you are not good in making website and also that you don't want to sell anything. So just want to know can you write articles? A person can earn if he/she can write about any topic. 500 words will get you anywhere from $3 - $5 Also, if you know any foreign language you can translate. You can earn per words you translate. And, if you can do data entry job you can invest your $20 in a freelance jobsite. But you have to bid for the works lowest possible so that you get chosen. Initially it will be hard for you to get job but once you start there people will leave feedback on your job which has been completed. And positive feedbacks will get you more work. Good Luck.

If you like to write articles you could write for Associated Content. There are a few opinion sites that are free to join that I make a little bit of money from. I don't spend my life on the web either, let me know if that helps. There is also another site I write for that pays from $5-$12 an article. I wouldn't consider these part time jobs but if you found a couple of writing websites you could build a freelance base.

Associated Content is great and they pay you promptly but don't be surprised if they offer you less than $5 for an article

Hi, i know how you feel. I am in the same situation. I write for reviewstream, once you get the hang of writing reviews its easy. its free to do. i recommend checking out that site. Also if you can write about 500 word articles on different subjects you can write for associated content. they pay 3 times a week for any article they buy. (THE KEY TO THESE TO SITES IS TO CHECK THEM OUT AND READ TUTORIALS AND LOTS OF OTHER PEOPLES ARTICLES TO SEE HOW ITS DONE.) and lastly my other source of income is a great site that i would love to have you as a referral on. please check out my profile if you want to sign up under me i can help you with lots of tips to earn money there, so let me know if you find it interesting.

I tried writing for reviewstream as the pay seemed very good and rewarding. However, even though they sent me an email saying that my reviews were high rated and qualified they still do not appear on the site, I have received absolutely no pay from them whatsoever and when I do a search on the site is says that no user with my name exists, it all seems like a bit of a scam!

I personally don;t like sites that you write for, other than mylot. I am just not good at it so it doesn't interest me and I think it takes a certain kind of person to earn that way. But thanks for the information. Alrighty then, talk to you later my friend, Have a good mylotting day, Chris

You could try writing reviews, the only money I've ever made online has been on dooyoo and Ciao. Ciao sends cheques and I think Ciao pay into your bank account. ood luck!

Keep checking the classifieds. Also check these classifieds in the newspapers. I have seen the most part time and easiest jobs listed there. Keep checking until you get something.

i think the best online job today is qyao. qyao is only for people who are serious about online jobs like you. it credits you with $15, the money you signup. It is basically a social networking site where you are paid for being active. u r also paid for joining afflitiate programs. your earnings are proportional to the amount of hard work you put in. You can earn thousand dollars each month. Trust me this is real not fake like a get rich scheme. if you want to know more about online money making please send a friend request and i will pm u.

I don't think it's really possible to make a decent amount of income to live off from using these types of schemes unless you can get your own website or proper business up on the internet. There is a list of sites that you can earn money on here though: http://www.geocities.com/extracashincome

There are several ways to earn money on line, but individually there not really any that will pay enough to compensate for a traditional job. You could do mystery shopping if you have a car try beyondhello.com, and Secretshopnet.com. If you are willing to do a variety of sites you could do OK. How much money were you hoping to make on line?

"Legitimate online job" you should have defined this first. If you would ask me, there is no such thing as "legitimate" if you compare it to day jobs as working in an office. Here on the internet, we are not looking for a job, but we are looking for business. If you understood what I am trying to say, then you would know what to do next.

Mysurvey and mypoints are both good sites to earn. I have been paid from both. But I do hate to disappoint you, nothing you do will pay big money for little time. You said you don't want to spend hours on the internet but that seems to be the one way of actually beginning to get that money coming in. It takes time at first but once you get the hang of it you can spend less time doing it. But everything, even a full time job takes a lot of time to actually make real money at it. You may also try selling some of your unwanted items through auctions sites like Ebay.

www.apply.westathome.com This a call center where you can work from home and pretty much set your own hours. I applied, but have not heard anything yet. Good Luck in your search.
