Working from home and what to expect
Working from home has some great perks, you get the freedom to work your own hours there’s no commute and you don’t have a boss looking over your shoulder. Working from home and working outside the home can be almost identical. What I mean is the opportunity that you get may be based on your experience or education. In other words you may not have experience in transcription therefore this will not be a good fit. Maybe your last job was a sales rep, there are many work from home opportunities that involve selling. Motor Club of America is always looking for work from home agents. You would be selling insurance plans or recruiting for agents, by placing ads on several sites everyday. Melaleuca is always looking for sales reps they have all natural and environmental products that you can sell. These jobs will pay you a commission for selling there products or services. After a while, you can make good monthly pay if you’re consistent and stick with it. If you don’t have experience in selling you might think about something like affiliate marketing. There are thousands of affiliate programs that you can sign-up with and market products for and there all free to join if you should ever be asked to pay to sign-up for affiliate programs, don’t they should all be free. Commission Junction is a great place to start. All you need is a website or blog to market the products from. Writing or blogging is another source of income. If you can write articles there are companies that will pay you for doing so such as http://contributor.yahoo.com there are several others just do the research. Just remember that if an opportunity sounds too good to be true then it probably is a scam.
