WORK AT HOME FOR MOMS – INTERNET BASED JOBS
If you read my last article, you know I briefly touched on ways you can work from home that don’t require the internet. (That list is by No means the end of the possibilities…keep checking the WAHM REVIEWS). However, there are other ways to earn money by using the computer.
There is a difference between work at home jobs and work at home opportunities. This article will help guide your research on work at home jobs.
WORK AT HOME JOBS
Work at home jobs usually mean that you work FOR someone else or for a company out of your own home. This could be working as an assistant, appointment setter, bookkeeper, etc… This usually means you have a quota, an agenda, or a set amount of work that needs to get done and you submit it to your ‘boss.’
Telemarketing is one example of this. There are lots of companies that hire people to take incoming calls from their home office. You are usually paid by the minute you spend on the phone and you can receive bonuses if you are able to upsell a purchase. Think of this as being the person on the other end of an infomercial.
Transcribing is another way you can work from home. Most transcriptionist jobs require some sort of training. For example, medical and criminal justice backgrounds. But you can find some entry level positions. They come few and far between, but if you can get your foot in the door as an entry level transcriber, then you can have opportunities to move up the ladder. You probably won’t make more than minimum wage just starting out.
Virtual Office Assistant. There are companies that do hire ‘virtual office assistants’ to help them sort through emails, set appointments, etc… If you are a real ‘go-getter’ then you can research local businesses in your area and offer to help them with their booking, payroll, etc. Being able to manage a budget and generate reports will also help you. Knowing how to navigate programs like QUICKBOOKS or APLOS can be a great way to market yourself – especially to ‘mom and pop’ stores.
DO YOUR RESEARCH
There are many other computer based jobs you can do from home. Jobs from home for moms are popping up ALL over the internet. But sometimes, it’s really hard to get started. Why? Because the majority of what’s out there are SCAMS!
JOBS are just that – you work for someone else and THEY HIRE YOU. You should NEVER pay for a legit ‘job’ on the internet.
DON’T GET SCAMMED
I will keeping a list of reviews of companies that are considered ‘scams’ on the internet. As the list grows, I will link them to this page.
I want to help others navigate the internet and be able to decipher what’s legit and what’s not. I will write up comprehensive reviews of scams out there so others won’t be dragged down.
Have you been scammed? REPORT SCAMS BELOW – drop me a comment of the company and I will write up a page about what I find!
