I was considering if this would be an effective way to earn for me. I don't have a phone line we just have cell phones. So we would consider getting a house phone if this would be a good way for me to earn money online. Have you earned a reasonable amount of money this way?

Well. You can earn huge amount in virtual assistant job but this job is too demanding. I want to try this one but I know I cannot make it. I know some of VA instead of phone they use skype for interaction or calling other clients. You can earn huge amount any kind of job if you pursue and always think positive. Life is changing radically. 99% in your hands while 1% luck.

hello dominique, what do you mean home phone, a landline or residential phone? for me whether you have or have no home phone , for as long as you have computer with internet connections , that would be enough and besides you have cell phone already. just like what i am doing now, using my computer with internet connection im doing some online earning.

The first thing I would like to ask - just out of curiosity is, why are you considering home phone? I guess, by home phone you mean a fixed wire phone. Does it make any difference if one such exists? I really don't know. But as far as your query goes, I worked with my previous client where we needed to work with a virtual assistant. She was a lady and didn't have a home phone. But the going was too great. She was there before me. I worked there for a year and half and left. It has been almost the same duration that I quit that job and she is still there. It has been a marathon work with a single employee. Just goes on to show that there's no need of a home phone. She probably used a wireless internet connection. I don't see any reason to have the need of a home phone - a phone line to have such a job. If you have problems connecting without wire, then I think, you have to go on the same path as you described in your query.

I tried it for a while. Didn't personally work for me. If you're going to the trouble to get the phone you might as well try phone teller jobs. You call people at home for a couple hours a day and it is more of a stable part time job.
