Are legitimate stay at home jobs for moms really available, or is it just scam?
No, they are not scams. Such jobs are available. In fact, there are more online job opportunities than ever for mothers wishing to work from home. Before we provide a long list of work from home opportunities, we would like to make a clear statement: Do not buy anything online without due diligence. There are plenty of advertisements all over the Internet claiming to sell an e-book containing make money online “insider” secrets. Truth be told, some might be legit, and contain helpful information. On the other hand, there are many others selling books or a CD with no useful information. They might send you something or let you download information after receiving your payment, but those will get you nowhere in regards to working from home.
Here is a list of work at home jobs that we highly recommend:
1. Being a nanny,
2. selling stuff on ebay – never thought you could make it a home based business? Think again and read up ebay success stories,
3. Managing web sites – if you visit the “web master forums”, you will find that there are some people who are looking to give the responsibility of managing their web sites to others – as you might expect, a little technical knowledge is certainly needed. Please look up ” webmaster forums” and scour the content to find if such an opportunity is available. Even if you do not find anything like that, ensure you visit the forums every now and then to see if any offers spring up. They certainly do, and we are sure you do not want to miss them,
4. Writing for blogs and web sites – If you have been looking for an online work at home job and wondering if they were all scams, this is one thing we will recommend for sure. There is HUGE opportunity for anybody who is a decent writer. When we say HUGE, we mean HUGE – not exaggeration at all. We have already written about where to look for such jobs here:http://helpforsinglemother.net/online-jobs-for-single-mothers-no-scams/
5. What about doing Surveys?
Not worth it. There are not many people who have made money off of it. You will only end up spending countless number of hours just to make a few bucks. It is just both inefficient and ineffective when it comes to making money online.
6. virtual assistant jobs – Definitely recommended! Google it and look for jobs that might suit you. The person who hires you will teach you what you need to do. Once you learn them, you are required to do it yourself and could get paid weekly, monthly, or however you want it.
7. A “chacha” guide:
Chacha is a website that has gained a lot of popularity recently. You can find a work from home opportunity in Chacha and get paid a few hundred dollars, provided you get accepted into their program and work to their satisfaction.
So, how does “Chacha” work?
1. Someone sends a question in their mind to chacha.com; 2. Chacha in turn sends the question to one of its “workers”; 3. the worker researches or uses his own expertise to answer the question; 4. the worker gets paid an amount for the same.
That sounds easy, right? The whole idea might even sound very simple and make you wonder if it is real. But rest assured that it is REAL – in fact, as of this writing, more than 1,00,000 people are already working as guides for this site. Head to the official site to learn more – link
8. Opening your own web site:
