How Can I Earn From Home
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So, how can I earn from home effectively? I'm hearing this question asked more and more frequently these days. Discovering a profitable way to work from home is not as difficult a you may think because of the introduction of the internet. A nine till five job is a grind lets face it - we would all like to get out of bed when we decide and also go to bed when we choose. Approximately three years ago I decided to give up the rat race of ordinary work and venture online to see if I could earn a better quality of life for myself, it was not plain sailing.

Unfortunately for every legitimate earning opportunity online there is always a similar scam or rip-off waiting around the corner. This fact is a very sad one and there are many people that lose cash on a daily basis. When I started out this also happened to me on two separate occasions and it was not a nice feeling. It was a hard lesson and it was a lesson I needed to learn to become successful - once you've fallen for a scam you make damn sure that you don't ever fall for one again.

I went for the wrong options to earn online. By this I mean I was targeting the wrong offers which were promising large income and profits. You know the ones - 'stay at home mother earns over a thousand bucks a day', 'caretaker retires on six figure income' etc, etc. These were big, attractive claims that pulled me in ( me and countless other people ). These offers are not necessarily a rip-off but they are cleverly constructed to take your money and leave you with a system that is almost impossible to make any money off.

After this bad experience in aiming to high with the big offers I decided to look for the smaller offers or smaller earners. There was many different opportunities to earn smaller incomes so I quickly tried a few out of the methods that interested me - Online surveys, get paid to sites, paid to click sites. All of these were effective in generating cash but my favorite was 'Paid to click' because basically, anyone could earn from these types of sites. Again, I had to be careful in what site I chose because the scams have spread as far as these smaller sites.

So the question 'how can I earn from home' has many answers. For me it was working on the internet - What will it be for you
