Legitimate Work From Home Jobs, Can You Really Make Money Online?
Can You Really Make Money Online?
This is the question of the day! Is it really possible to find legitimate work online, and make money doing it? How can you tell if it’s a scam or not? So many things sound too easy and too good to be true. How does someone like me, with no real knowledge of how all this computer stuff really works, dive in and find real work that you can do from home, with the goal of being able to bring in a substantial income? Does any of this hit home with you?
Hopefully, if you’ve been wondering the same thing, I can provide you with some information that will help. I’ve been searching and experimenting for a while. My real frustration in my searching was that I just wanted someone, some site to just be 100% up front in what to do and how to do it, what the “work” involves and how much you’d get paid. I don’t want to click here, and go there, and the next thing you know you’re in a maze of flashing webpages making ridiculous offers, and each one is THE BEST offer or scheme out there, limited time only, for you only, today only. Most of all I seriously hate the pages you click on, then when you try to exit 3 or 4 more annoying pop-up pages keep asking you if you’re sure you want to leave. YES I want to leave, that’s why I clicked the big red X. Can you feel me here?
While searching I decided to Google legitimate jobs, and work at home scams. If you’ve done this as well, unfortunately you may find yourself watching a YouTube video of someone addressing a scam, that at the end of the video is selling you the very product you were researching. Clever, clever sales tactic, but again, very annoying when you just want a simple straight answer. What is real out there, and what types of internet marketing schemes, or data entry jobs are legitimate, and can provide you with a decent, or even decadent source of income?
Well, don’t lose heart my friends, the answer is yes, there are real jobs online to be found, and I’ll offer you some of the knowledge I’ve gained to this point, and the benefit of my scam research! There is actually a large variety of real jobs to choose from, I’ll explain some of the choices and options available to you if you’ve been thinking about working from home.
Now is there one that will make you get rich quick? That’s not likely, despite what a lot of the sites try to sell you. It’s not impossible, just improbable. Most of the people that profess to have made a bizillion dollars in a week, have probably put a lot of money into advertising and websites up front. If you’re like me, you don’t have a ton of money to invest, that’s why we’re looking for work online!! There are online data entry companies that are legitimate, and if you are patient, and follow their business model EXACTLY, it is very possible to make $300 or more a day, and build a long lasting residual income with low maintenance. It will take a couple of months to really see any progress, depending on the time you have to invest, but it is possible.
There are several legitimate online data entry companies that partner with Fortune 500 companies and 1000’s of smaller businesses through which you can do traditional data entry jobs from home. If you’ve never had any experience doing these types of word processing, most of the companies that you would work through provide you with the training to do the job. These types of data entry jobs most often pay you on an hourly scale, much like if you were working for them in an office setting. Legitimate online companies are the real deal, provide literally thousands of job opportunities, all the training, and support teams to help you with any questions. The best comparison would be that working through one of these companies is similar to being employed through a Temp agency.
Many people make money online by writing and advertising through posting articles, submitting websites and ads to the internet, or selling services or their products as an affiliate marketer. Most companies, small to fortune 500 will pay you a commission for products or services that are sold through your ads or posts on the internet. This is basically what an affiliate does. Some companies pay you just for someone clicking on the ad, even if they don’t make a purchase. The key to being successful in this type of online income is in traffic and having your sites or blogs seen. This is an eventual process, one needs to make a blog or post daily, and everyday do something to promote your place on the web to get your postings ranked higher in the search engines. It’s not realistic to think that thousands of people will just happen to visit your site the day after you create it, and even more unrealistic to think that even half of them might buy what you’re pushing!
Now don’t be scared if any of this language sounds foreign to you. A reputable online business will teach you step by step every skill and avenue that you would need to be successful. You can make money from home by doing “Home Typing”, but it is a gradual thing that requires a little organization and patience. The best thing is that if you decide to use the services of a good online data entry portal, they teach you how to do everything on the internet by using FREE sites. There are ways to create and advertise on the internet without having to invest a ton of money.
Another avenue that many people pursue to make money online is network marketing, or Multi Level marketing. This type of work involves recruiting other people into your business and sales, either of certain products or sales of the business itself, which would involve a lot of advertising and follow up. If you’re a go-getter and into sales, and have money to spend on marketing, there are actually a couple of legitimate network marketers to explore, and there is big money to be made, but it does require effort. This kind of business has made millionaires, but it is a numbers game in a competitive market and it is necessary to recruit constantly, and have good follow up skills as well to keep new members under you involved and productive.
If you’re searching the web, and you run across an offer that sounds too good to be true, I urge you to proceed with caution! Read all the fine print and terms and conditions. Many times a site will claim that it’s free to get started, or that all you have to do is fill out surveys, etc. What they won’t tell you is that in order to get paid that you may be required to complete 10 trial offers from the survey companies, and in a month’s time you’ll suddenly have monthly service charges or charges for products and subscriptions showing up on your credit card. Protect yourself, be careful in your searches, read, read, read all the fine print and terms, and good luck to you if you’re out there searching for alternative income.
The Internet is a huge new world, and people are coming up with new avenues of making money online every day. My advice would be that if you find something you’re interested in, don’t join right off the bat, even if their ad says “You’ll never see this offer again”! This is just a marketing ploy playing on our response to urgency, the hurry before it’s too late offer that makes us want to buy now. Give yourself time to do a thorough search on Google or YouTube regarding any offers you’re interested in. You will undoubtably have to wade through a lot of sales pitches, but some people and sites out there give you honest reviews of all the details regarding online businesses.
The bottom line is, can you make money online? Yes, it’s a huge world out there, and people are doing it every day, from traditional jobs to outrageous marketing schemes, there’s something out there for everybody!
