working at home

I'm looking to make legit money at home. I'm doing the ptc's, surveys, etc, they're great for some gas money, but that's about it. I want real pay. I am a realist. I know that there is no such thing as get rich quick. I just want regular pay for working at home. Not interested in selling anything, pyramid schemes or whatever. To be specific I am interested in some type of data entry, article writing, a typing job. Does anyone know of a legitimate paying site I can check out that offers something like that. No sites that want membership fees, or any other scams. If you do how long have you been using the service, and have you been paid. Oh yeah prefer something that pays to paypal.

yeah hundreds of referrals that you have to babysit, and make sure they are doing what they're suppose to do. Its not easy to get refs without some work, and then the problem with refs is most of them don't do anything. So you may have a few hundred refs, and only 1 person doing something. I need real online income.

I would love to find a great online work at home job too. I am a stay at home wife and mother so I have the time. I've been looking..but it's not easy. Good luck to you finding something! Sorry I don't have any advice at the moment. But I did want to give you encouragement!

Thank you :) I hope you find something too. I'm a bit shocked that in the internet age, its still so hard to find real work online. I always hear about people that work online for companies in their homes. (not freelance, reg job), but I can never find these mystery jobs.

Have you tried oDesk.com? You can sign up there and apply as a freelancer to companies that offers jobs that you mentioned above. You have the option to have a timed job or non-timed job, depending on the type of job you are handling. I've been planning on taking it's readiness test but can't find the time because of my daughter. But I think you will like it there, I have heard success stories from some bloggers earning a lot from oDesk.

I agree with workinggene. There are many success stories with oDesk. I have a friend offline who is a web programmer, he's getting a lot of contracts and tasks from oDesk and he's making good money! oDesk is the only "work from home online" site i know that is sure legitimate and not scam. Others will simply saute you with your own oil. They will lure you with their "free to join" approach, but in the middle of the game, they will require you to pay for membership upgrade so that you can earn more. In my understanding, if you are looking for work, whether work from home or work in corporate world, it really means you are looking for a job and not business. If you want job, you go to job hiring opportunities, not to business opportunities places. Now, in looking for a job, will you go for a job if you discover your boss will later require you to pay money just to be more productive working with him?

I am taking an online class currently. In it we are learning many different methods and companies for legit earnings. If you are interested in a substansial income a company like ACN may work for you.

There are plenty of these on the internet. They're so convincing you would think it's the last answer to your last hope. Turns out these online marketing - no need to itemize them, benefits the ones on the top. And you, you're there working for them. Of course, you would still be receiving a cent. Could be what we're doing here.

If it is writing sites you are interested I have a handful of good ones that I do, they are honest and they pay regularly. You can make good money writing but it does take a lot of effort and it does take some time to get going. I try to write at least one article for each of the sites I write for a day during the week. I take weekends off though. There are other writers who write several things a day, I honestly don't know how they do that. Review writing can be worthwhile too but it does take some time to build up enough reviews. Associated Content is still the best writing site around. If you want more you can PM me and I will give you everything I got. I will send a friend request, then you can private message me if you like.

I prefer make money online rather than working at home. I have main job (offline job) and I want make more money. with little bit time, it's almost imposible for me to make enough money online. I have two children. When I am at home, my time is for my family. So, How I make money online? The answer is investment. I make some online investment. Most of you called online investment as HYIP. Well, it is alright. I invest my money carefully. I have make investment for 3 months and so far so good. I receive payment regularly from some investment site. I like it because I don't have to do extra work to make extra money. Let the money work. If you interested in investment, just add me as your friend and I will PM you good investment site.
