How To Earn Money From Home
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Many of us have ventured into the world of online business in an attempt to learn how to earn money from home. Financially things are getting very tight out in the real world and various different avenues are being explored in an attempt to make the payment of monthly bills a little easier. But where to start? I, myself started down this road about two years ago and let me tell you - it was not as easy as it sounds.

When you first turn on your PC in vain hope of making your first million you are full of excitement and hope. This, however, does not last long. There are so many pitfalls out there in the form of well constructed scams I don't know where to start. I was aiming very high with my expectations when I first started out and because of this I fell for two separate scams on two separate occasions. When you first get that sinking feeling and you realize you have been taken for a ride it is not a nice feeling it leaves you very annoyed. To avoid these scams my advice would be to aim lower with your expectations and in the next couple of paragraphs I will highlight a couple of options you can take up.

Before we start remember - you are not going to become rich by using just one of the smaller earning sites, you must combine a few of them to really see any sort of real money come in. Paid to Click sites and Paid Survey sites are the one of the most popular and simple ways to earn easy money online ( I used them both at the beginning of my journey ). Paid to click sites are set up for you to earn money by viewing advertisers adverts or websites. This is a very simple way to earn money and can sometimes be quite interesting if you view a site or offer you are in any way interested in. I must point out here to be careful - scam merchants also use these sites to advertise their offers and products so be careful.

Online survey sites are also very popular although I did not use them for very long because of the amount of time they took up ( some of the surveys were very long and time consuming ). These sites are simple in their function - you sign up, give an email address and receive daily surveys to complete for money. I have heard of some people doing really well through these survey sites but unfortunately, this did not happen for me.

So the answer to the question 'how to earn money from home' is not to reach for the heights to begin with. Start small and build your online business up. Always remember to do a search of the site with the term 'scam' added before signing up for any of them. To be able to work from home is a something we all want if possible so play it safe and do not shell out money without being sure first.
