When people ask me for advice about working at home, the first thing I tell them is to diversify. It’s impossible to predict when one source of income could dry up, by having a few alternative sources of revenue you’ll be able to keep paying your bills while you look for a way to fill in the gap. Having alternative forms of income was the reason I made the decision to check out G5Live.
Unlike most WAH opportunities that need people to write some type of content, G5Live truly provides a different way of earning money. You’ll be working in the customer support field and will be helping clients with their questions.
Pros of G5Live
I’ve done this type of customer service work in the past but never liked it because I hate talking on the phone. This was different, G5Live has set things up so everything takes place online, and I get to type the answers. Perfect for someone who likes to keep their dealings with people minimal. Most of the questions I took were very easy to answer and I didn’t run into many people who I felt were rude or had problems too big for me to deal with. I was very comfortable with the work I was doing.
I found this work to be very flexible and I enjoyed many of the chat sessions I found myself engaging in.
Cons of Working with G5Live
I had reservations when I first started working for G5Live. The pay didn’t seem that good. Twenty-five cents per chat session didn’t seem like much, but I hoped that maybe it would add up. While it has the potential to equal a decent amount of money if the chats are short and frequent, I haven’t made much.
Another problem, one that bothers me more, is that the work isn’t as frequent as I’d like. If there’s a period of time when the chat sessions remain steady and short, I haven’t found it.
My final Thoughts
I still occasionally do work for G5Live, and it is a legitimate work at home income, but I hope I’m never in a position where I need to rely on it for a bulk of my income. If you find yourself in need of a change of pace, and if you really enjoy interacting you’ll probably consider the time you spend logged into your account well-spent. I still do a little work for this site simply to see if the number of chat sessions ever pick up.
