Work at Home Job Opportunity

How many times have you spotted a work at home job opportunity on the internet? They are all promising the same thing - make $200-500 a day, work at home mum earns $1,000 a day, viral cash machine. it all sounds pretty good. The sad fact is that about seventy-five percent of these lucrative offers are scams set up to make as much out of you as possible and then disappear of the face of the planet.

Quitting the daily rat race of a nine to five job to work from home sounds like a fairy tale way to live your life. It did to me so I decided to follow a career working online. I was full of hope and expectation but this did not last for long. Within a fortnight I was down $47 through a scam which I had put a lot of time and effort into. I was looking at too big a picture and going for the offers that were boasting big profits. When you start out you should do some research into the smaller money making opportunities and take more than one of them on.

there are quite a few of these smaller, legitimate ways to earn online these days. People spend quite a lot of time completing various surveys for money. I have heard of individuals earning quite a lot doing these sort of tasks but I was not so lucky. A took some forum advice and joined up to the leading marketing sites and made myself available to answer surveys on a daily basis. Within twenty-four hours my email folder was completely full with spam as well as offers to complete surveys for money.

The spam was annoying enough but I was happy with the response of survey invitations. However, this did not last long. Every survey I attempted let me get to about two questions before the end and then tell me I did not qualify through demographics ( why didn't they tell me this at the start of the survey instead of the end ). I found myself working all day for about two dollars - not enough to eat let alone pay the bills. Through these survey sites I discovered another way to earn called paid to click.

Paid to click sites pay you for visiting their advertisers sites. This was a much more tangible way to earn money online for me and they also introduced me to to affiliate marketing. Joining one of these sites will never be enough so I joined up to about 6 of the legitimate, well known sites. There are other ways to earn online but my advice is to start small - take baby steps and do not invest anything in the site until you are sure it is a trustworthy business model. Once you have learned how to earn the correct way think about stepping up a level to another way of earning online - good luck
