Legitimate Computer Home Jobs – Work From a Laptop
I Want to Work at Home from My Computer? Is It Possible?
You can imagine it. There you are….in your home, comfy clothes, cup of coffee in hand…..
You leisurely make your way to your “work at home” space or office – or maybe you grab your laptop and sit out on your porch.
Are you on vacation? Is it your day off? Nope….you're getting ready to “go to work” from home. I imagine….most people want this. Wish for it. Well…maybe not movie stars or the super wealthy….
But lets just say there are MILLIONS of people out there that want to work at home. They don't want to do direct sales, they don't want to start a home business….they simple want to fire up their computer and get to work.
Oh…and they want to make a HUGE salary too.
Now….I'm not saying this isn't possible. Becoming a millionaire? Hmmm…..I don't know??? I'd say NOT. Making $100,000 a year? That's pushing it too.
There ARE ways to use your computer so that you can earn some cash from home. They aren't scammy or spammy. They are legitimate and real. Will you make a “real” income? I think anything in the $5000-$20,000 range. It may not be just one thing either. I do MANY different things to earn an income that rivals my on-air radio gig. (I didn't make a lot in radio….I know, it seems glamorous and fabulous….but even with a 4 year degree in Radio-TV-Film and years of experience – doing the morning show (ALONE!), I only made about $22,000 a year!)
So – what can YOU do to make money at home with your computer? The advice I give here has worked for me. I can't make promises, I can only tell you from my experience, my point of view.
Everything I do to earn form home is done on the computer except for Avon. Avon requires me to do customer service and delivery outside the home. But I keep my customer base close! Within a 10-12 miles radius. I have no desire to cover an entire town or become Avon Rep of the year. If Avon was ALL I did….it would be a different story. But my passion is my website and my blog – so I'd much rather invest my time there.
So what programs do I use to earn a little mad money….
I'm always on the look out for “Paid to read Emails” or “Paid to Read/View Ads” programs. There have been many over the years. Very few survive. Not sure if any of you remember AllAdvantage. I did this program religiously back in 2000 – but it bit the dust by 2004-2005. It was awesome in it's prime – but many “internet” companies burned to the ground when the dot-com bubble burst.
But since AllAdvantage, other programs have cropped up. I give most a try and stick with the ones that actually pay.
I have been doing Hits4Pay. Hits4Pay has by far impressed me more than any other easy-cheesy read ads program. It's So easy….there are always ads, you can pay to have them help you build a larger referral base and they have never failed to pay me. It always goes right into my PayPal account each month. And the best part….you get $10 just for signing up! I am currently making….and I am NOT kidding – close to $50 a month throughHits4Pay! Now….I DO pay for their referral building program and I have from the beginning because I felt it was worth the investment. It has been! I pay $5.99 a month for it. In return….I'm making close to $50 a month. I not only earn on the ads I read, but on all the ads of the referrals they have placed on my “team”.
So there is $50 that I am bringing in EACH month, by just reading some ads?
Now….I add InboxDollars – another paid to read program in there…and it's even more to my monthly cash bottom line.InboxDollars has been around forever…since 1999! It's stable and I always get paid when I request my checks. I earn roughly $30 a month -emails are sent to you and you can fill out offers on the site. I mainly do just the emails. But you can fill out offers. I don't fill out offers unless it's something I am genuinely interested in.
Again….you can earn even more by referring others.
And now I've just snagged $80 a month doing really minimal stuff. And there are so many programs like these. I have a really big list of ways to make extra cash. And it's worth checking out because you really can add $100 or more to your bottom line each month doing easy online tasks.
