Legitimate Ways To Make Money From Home

Make Money / Saturday, April 6th, 2013

   I know, I know. You are thinking that all work from home opportunities are a scam-but are they really? I have been a stay-at-home mom for a little over 6 years. I have tried several ways to make money online. Are they all scams? No, some are actually legitimate ways to make money. I will share my experiences with you.

Content Writing: I have done content writing for several companies over the past few years. Do I make money with it? Yes, I do. Some companies pay more than others depending on what you are writing. I am currently writing for Textbroker and Wordgigs. Due to confidentiality agreements, I cannot discuss pay or what types of writing I do. I can, however, tell you that I do make money writing articles. You can also write articles and sell them to bloggers or other website owners. There are many groups on Facebook where you can list such articles for sale. Do a search for virtual assistants, content for sale, etc.

Virtual Assistant: Working as a virtual assistant can consist of many things. You can do bookkeeping, blog assistance (scheduling posts, writing posts, etc), social media management, and so much more. Do a search on Facebook for virtual assistant groups.

Customer Service: Several years back, I worked for Parameds for several months as a record retrieval specialist. Requires a quiet home environment and you are making outgoing calls to medical facilities to get physician statements or medical records on patients. I had to quit this job due to Caden getting older and making noise in the background. Most home-based customer service jobs require a quiet area in which to work. There are a LOT of the customer service jobs out there. You are required by most companies to have a hard-wired internet connection. Be sure to read the equipment and internet requirements.

Direct Sales: This one is kind of tricky. You can make money with direct sales but don’t expect to make money without putting in the effort. It takes time and effort to make money in direct sales. You must also choose a company that you believe in.

That said, you can make money from home. Take your time. Research the companies and you will be on your way to an amazing income.
