I'm sure you have seen the following ads when you've searched for work at home jobs:
- mystery shopping
- taking surveys
- placing links for Google
- getting paid for photos
These work at home opportunities do exist. If you search for them using the right keywords, you will find the legit sites. Do I recommend them? Not really. I've tried them and they don't bring in a steady income. Do not ever pay for any of those work at home programs. These companies are designed to take your money and that's it. I read a long forum post on how the Google links company took people's credit card info and continued to charge them until the customer closed their credit card account!
The truth is that you can make money with Google, but it takes a lot of content writing, keyword research and SEO. It's not as easy as they make it seem. Actually, it's not easy at all. You can check out my Google Adsense payment proof here: How Can I Work From Home. On that site I have shared several free sites that can help you earn money from home using your computer. I'm going to use two of the sites as examples and explain how you can create an income from home, without quitting your current job or leaving your home!
Ready? Let's go!
The first site I am going to share is Squidoo. It is a site similar to Wizzley. You join for free, create pages (which are called lenses) and earn money through advertising revenue, amazon sales, ebay sales or affiliate networks you choose to use. They are easy to create. Start out by making one, so you become familiar with the site. After you get accustomed to the site, aim for one a day.
Zazzle is another site that allows you to make products using images you draw, paint or photograph. You can make tons of products from just one picture including mugs, keychains, t-shirts and bags! Start out slow, so you can learn your way around the site. Then increase your Zazzle production.
