This is the classic work-at-home mom gig, but it's for a lot more people than just moms! Selling stuff you love can be a great way to make extra money from home, even if you work in an office most of the day. Direct selling is scalable to your own lifestyle, ambition, and talents. You can keep it casual and mostly sell to friends and acquaintances. Or, if you really get to networking online and in person, you can build a client base outside your existing circles.
Not necessarily new, but definitely a great opportunity! Jen Henson was a teacher in Ohio when she was approached by her principal to tutor an athlete preparing for ACT testing. He had a full ride offer from a college but need the test scores to seal the deal. After hearing about the results Jen was able to help this student achieve, he’s in the NFL today, she started being approached by other coaches.
These three points may seem like common sense, but the truth is that the people who run these scams are very good at what they do. They’ve been able to deceive many intelligent people because they present their “opportunities” so well that almost anyone will believe them. When you’re looking for a new job or extra income, it’s easy to get lulled in to a comfort zone where they can take advantage of you. Keep your guard up – always.

Still, Ms. Branco, who graduated magna cum laude with a degree in musical theater from American University in 2009, says she feels lucky to be employed at all. “The majority of the jobs I have right now are because people were laid off and they didn’t want to hire back full-time employees,” she said. “My willingness to have a hodgepodge schedule makes me more marketable.”
I can’t say that we’ve gotten rich off of it,  but it helps pay the bills.  It’s daily traffic rivals and surpasses that of established news media outlets in our market, and we’ve brought on board some award-winning journalists in recent years.  It’s also gotten us other opportunities over the years, such as press passes to concerts and sporting events, chances to test out new products or listen to unreleased CDs, and so on.
Automattic’s employees design their own days, determining what hours work best for them. The key, Rosso says, is making sure they’re predictable and consistent. “We have some people who work the weekends,” she says, “But they set that expectation of when they’ll be available. Our teams can adjust to that.” As such, they’re used to asynchronous communication—the idea that your question might not be answered immediately.

1. AccuTran Global – AccuTran Global is mostly known as a transcription company, which is fair since that’s mostly what they bring on independent contractors to do. However, they sometimes have data entry jobs as well, so it’s best to keep your eye out. Check the link for my overview of the company, detailing what it’s like for their transcriptionists: it’s likely to share similarities to what they expect of data entry specialists.

Many direct sales businesses are built on a model known as multi-level (sometimes called "network" or "matrix") marketing. The business owner (i.e. the home-based businessperson) earns money from direct sales to customers, as well as claiming a percentage of the revenue earned by "downline" sellers that the owner has recruited to become part of the company's sales force. While there is nothing inherently wrong with this model, there are a couple of common pitfalls with these types of businesses. Consider the following two examples.
Call Center QA is always hiring Telephone Mystery Shoppers from the United States. Work from home making calls and completing short online forms. Flex hours and great pay. No upfront costs or background checks. Payout via PayPal within 24 – 48 hours. We have employed and paid thousands of people across the United States. Member of the Better Business Bureau.
Follow the S.M.A.R.T. goal approach: Make sure your to-do list for the day includes tasks that are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound. Friends who work from home have long touted Francesco Cirillo’s Pomodoro productivity technique as an effective way to tackle a goal, or even longer projects, by helping you stay focused for 25-minute intervals with 5-minute breaks in between. Tackle one task within the 25 minutes? Move on to the next. The TomatoTimer web application is a simple timer that can help you get started and stay focused.

"If I'm planning on working from home on a certain day, I'll make sure to get any work done ahead of time that requires me to be in the office -- for example, if I'm working on a task that would be infinitely easier to complete with access to my large monitor screen, or need to schedule meetings with coworkers that are best had in person. Plan out your week in advance to optimize for the environments you'll be in."
Another common one? It's called the Secret Shopper scam. You get a letter or see an ad or e-mail saying you can be a secret shopper, shopping different stores, acquiring different products for a company. Sounds simple right? It's starts out that you receive a check in the mail from the company you're supposedly doing services for, and "working for."

Great list! I have been around the internet and work at home opportunities for many years now and I haven’t even heard of some of these. There is so much misguiding info about how to generate an income online. I enjoy the fact these methods are realistic and not just a bunch of garbage and hype. There isn’t enough reputable, strait forward information about how to make money online these days. Thanks again for the resources.
What isn't clear in the sales pitch is this: Once you've kept the CD-ROM for more than a few days, you start getting charged -- sometimes hundreds of dollars, just to have it in your possession. A lot of consumers who have fallen for this have reported difficulty in stopping the charges, and in returning the CD. It's a trap that's easy to fall into but hard to dig out of.
Do you have a degree in nutrition?  I know Livestrong.com is hiring writers for their site through Demand Media Studios.  DMS also hiring writers and editors for every other topic under the sun to be published on eHow.com and their numerous other web properties.  You can make about $15 or more per article, and a few dollars for each article that you edit.  You can work as much or as little as you want.  Once you “claim” an assignment, of which there are tens of thousands, you have 7 days to complete it.
When you’re the boss, unfortunately, you have to buy your own health insurance, unless you are covered some other way. (When, oh when, are we going to get Medicare for all in this country?) You’re responsible for your own taxes and accounting. It takes a lot of planning. As Bayt puts it, “Leave no stone unturned in constructing your detailed business plan and make sure to analyze and prepare for every possible outcome and scenario.”
Where I live right now I have to drive 20 to 50 miles to get to a town, and they are only paying $8 an hour so it is not worth driving to work every day. So I have become a stay at home mom. I have been looking for something I can do at home to help out with the bills for over a year now. It is driving me crazy not working. Can anyone help. Can you please email me with any information you might have.
I started up a news website along with my husband in 2006.  We are both news junkies who love to write.  I always wanted to be a journalist,  but I knew where that career field was heading and I didn’t really want to be an intern or do time as the obituary writer.  So we took our passion for news and for writing and our love for our hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, and we started up a news site.
Swagbucks is an online platform where you can earn points called SB, which can be redeemed for gift cards and coupons.

Companies these days are expanding their office boundaries to incorporate the idea of working from home. These work from home companies offer employees flexible working hours, better pay and freedom from office walls. Even though the internet is flooded with many online jobs, there are some that offer better pay. Here is a list of work from home firms that are willing to pay $16 per hour or more for home-based jobs.
When I mention that I’ve worked from home for almost two years, I’m often met with envy. That’s quickly followed, however, with a line along the lines of, “I don’t know how you do that; I would never get anything done.” I fully understand both of those reactions. Remote work has its share of notable perks (I can travel for a week-long trip to visit family and still show up for work, for example), but it also has a unique set of challenges.

Online business is how I’ve made a living since 2003 and what has helped me retire early.  I make over $20,000 a month through my blog. You can create your own blog here with my easy 15-minute step-by-step tutorial.  You can start a blog for as little as $2.95 a month (less than a cup of coffee!).  Create a blog and leverage it into affiliate sales or product endorsement deals. Consider topics like:


Another flexible non-phone option in the educational field is test scoring. There are a few reputable companies that do hire home-based workers to score everything from standardized tests to essays. Before you apply, you should know that ETS and Pearson (listed below) do require that you have certain qualifications and/or past teaching experience before they'll let you become a scorer. WriteScore on the other hand requires just a two-year college degree.
Search engine evaluators work online as independent contractors and give feedback about whether search engine results are comprehensive, accurate, relevant, and timely. They are the human quality-assurance check in a system run by complicated algorithms. Search engine evaluators must be familiar with the language and the culture of the local web search engine users. Typically, these positions are bilingual, but some openings are available for English-only search evaluators.
Technology has taken us all by storm. We can shop, communicate with friends and family, play games, and educate ourselves, all from a PC. In the past 25 years alone, we have gone from the giant Zack Morris cell phone to the sleek and compact smartphone – communication devices are designed with convenience in mind. Technology has made significant changes in how we network, we can quickly make global business connections, and clients can see our faces without a face-to-face meeting. Companies can allow employees to access necessary systems from a home computer. This has opened up the door for a whole new way of doing business: telecommuting.

Great post and all, but is it possible to make money from a blog without teaching people how to blog? Seems like most of the money making blogs out there make money from affiliates for starting a to blog! Making Sense of Cents is one that comes to mind. She’s a huge pusher for Blue Host, which she doesn’t even use. A huge portion of her income, if not all, is based on teaching people how to blog.
Do other cultures fascinate you? Do you enjoy working with children? If so, you can teach English to Chinese students online. Most companies will require you to have a Bachelor's Degree (in any subject) and some sort of related teaching experience. Pay ranges from $13 – $25 per hour and hours are part-time and flexible. If this sounds intriguing here are some companies to check out:
As an executive at a leading financial services and technology company with two young children, I’m often asked how I maintain a balanced personal and professional life. The answer is simple—I don’t. After many hours of self-reflection, conversations with friends and family, and debates with my husband, I’ve found a recipe for success with life-work integration rather than work-life balance. For me, it’s not about striving for a perfect balancing act but rather integrating across all aspects of life so you can bring your whole self to everything you do.
When I saw the title “5 Harsh Realities of Making a Living Online” in my Google Reader I was very happy. I agree with you, not enough people talk about the fact that it’s NOT EASY. It takes a tremendous amount of time, effort and energy – and even then you are not guaranteed the results you want. It’s basically just as risky and time consuming as building a business in the “Real” world (i.e. not online.) For some reason, people think that being “online” makes it easier – but it doesn’t.
I’m looking for people to join my team with Advocare! It’s a great opportunity to get healthy (especially as the New Year approaches!) and make some additional money!

Email me with “advocare” in the subject line if you’re interested! laurenherbers@gmail.com

If you want to have a successful business on eBay, you need a store. There's no going around it. There are so many perks to having a store, one is that eBay promotes your store on search engines, so you're getting a lot more traffic than you will not having one. Another perk is that it automatically gives you credibility. Do you know how many cases are opened with eBay by fly-by-the-night scammers?

There are several ways to make money from your car such as taxiing people, renting your car, or advertising businesses. Run the numbers before using your car to make money, especially if you're driving more than usual because it might cost more than you earn to use your car as a money-maker. Factor in depreciation, wear and tear, and gas expenses when you decide if driving is a cost-effective way to make extra money. 
Thank you for contributing such a wonderful post. As usual, you have conveyed a profound truth in simple language, that is, there is no substitute for hard work. Persistence pays, so never give up. And if one course does not work, take a detour. If your on-line business is not working, find another angle to work on it, but don’t give up. This is the message I got out of your write-up: a true inspiration. In your case, the hours and hours of struggle have paid off, so continue to educate us, your fans and readers. Wish you the best and three cheers to your success. Cheerio.

This is pretty much the same position as an in-house recruiter - expect you get to work wherever you want. The other major difference is that you search the web to find the right employee for the right position. You’re also responsible for screening the applicant and being a part of the interviewing and negotiation process. There are even recruiters being paid upward of $125/hr for building resume templates.
These days, you can start a small home business without a large amount of capital. Whether it’s buying and selling collectibles on eBay or teaching classes in yoga, many people have turned a profit from home. Among other factors, the industry in which you choose to start a business impacts the likelihood that your business will be successful. According to a report by Statistics Brain, only 37 percent of new IT companies were still in operation after four years compared to 47 percent of retail startups and 58 percent of finance, insurance, and real estate businesses that reached the four-year mark.

Stay connected. Make sure that you’re readily available via e-mail, phone, text, instant message, Skype and/or conference call, Hanna says. Taylor adds: “When in doubt, over-communicate until told otherwise. Don't forget that your lack of presence can be a negative if your boss is in the dark, especially in this high employment environment. While the best managers are looking for results, to some extent, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Be vocal about your activities and achievements while away from the office.”
