Are there any realjobs that you can do from home?

July 17, 2011 4:21pm CST
I've been trawling the internet for months now trying to find a real job that I can do from home to earn a bit of extra money. All the jobs I have found want you to pay at least $20 some even want $500. How can you pay this if you are short of money in the first place, which is why you are looking for jobs? Also most of them require you to be computer literate not a basic computer user like me. Can any of you help me?

First rule of earning online: NEVER pay for anything unless you're 100% sure of what you'll get in return. Second rule: Don't believe the hype - if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. As someone who can use a computer, you can do a lot of different online jobs that don't need particular skills - but they'll pay badly. It's like working in an unskilled job offline: the pay is always worse than you could get if you had saleable skills. But don't be too disappointed - you might have skills that you don't realise you have. Are you good at organising and tracking work? Virtual Assistant. Are you good at customer service? CS rep by phone or email. Are you good at digging up information? Researcher. Can you listen to audio and type out accurately what the person says? Transcription. There are tons of real jobs around (as well as lesser stuff for less money). The first thing to decide is what you'd like to do and what you CAN do. Drop into my profile and grab the free beginner's guide there - I wrote it after I spent three months trying to figure out how to earn some money, so hopefully it'll save you a bit of time in research! Once you know what you want to do, come back and ask question. MyLotters have a fabulous amount of knowledge and are very willing to share. Good luck!
