    I'm a student from Uruguay. For the last few days I've been looking for a -work from home- job...
    Thanks God I did not fall into any scam yet... and a friend told me about to search forums that would help me with my investigation.

    And here I'm. Reading u all, brought me peace... more faith...and positive thoughts about all this huge subject.

    As a 3rd world country citizen, would like to find my independence...using my internet experience from years and try out this whole new world for me...the internet marketing... or whatever its called.

    I want to take the risk... and try...

    There is any site that is better for beginners ???
    Do I actually need to invest to see the real results at first?

    After all the review...I might try with this site:

    Its reliable?

    Thank u guys for all the information, and the support.

    Don't ever pay for a job.

    I am not sure about the work at home job. Currently, i am doing a online business. Need some money to invest on the programs and advertising.

    Type at home jobs are generally not what they appear to be. I'd advise you to avoid anything that advertises "quick and easy" money.

    Please avoid any online job which you have to pay money to do that. Also which secret promises you a huge income in a short period, please avoid also.

    If you are new to online business, I suggest that you should try free advertising first. Don't pay for your ad, especially PPC. Don't do PPC until you are well educated about them, otherwise you will end up with losing money instead of having it.

    But free advertising may take times, but it worths to try, though.

    Avoid any online job, where you have to invest money. There is a lot of information about typeinternational available online, do your research.

    Welcome to the forum! I actually did the same thing you for forums to do some research. Forums have many users so you are more likely to find opposing views and more honest information. I actually found this site trying to find info about surveys and ended up finding out about affiliate marketing, and I'm glad I did.

    You can get started for free with affiliate marketing, but I personally started with a program to help beginners like me learn the ropes. You could also try freelance writing, blogging, or surveys (though they don't seem to pay as well). I haven't heard many good things about type at home jobs, but that doesn't mean there aren't any legitimate ones out there. Good luck with whatever you do!

    I know how exciting it is to think about making money online. You must have confidence that it has happened for others, so it can and will happen for you. But also, you must always keep it in the back of your mind that scammers are out there, and they will take advantage of you if they can.

    I do believe the best way to start your own business is by affiliate marketing. But you can't do it alone. I have found out in my search for a way to make money online that there is nothing free, and it will take work. I want you to learn these 4 key things: Believe, Be Determined, Have Confidence, and Don't Quit.

    I personally like a program that will take me by the hand and will teach me how to step-by-step make money online. That is what I'm doing, and it works!

    Guys, unbelievable that I get responses almost one year later!
    But I'm glad, thanks a lot for all your advices!

    Still, it's worth to tell on what I ended up working:

    After a lot of kinda useful research, a friend of mine by "coincidence" (I dont really believe in coincidences), asked me how was my english, my spanish, my spelling and imagination...
    He had a webmaster friend who wanted freelancers to work from home! (in my country).

    So I ended up making all sorts of contents for webpages, also combined with graphic design, half time, and paid in dollars.

    I can't say it's the dream job at home, because it's not as well paid as it could be compared to working "internationally", but I'm very grateful. And I really can't complain, because it's decently paid according to my country economic situation.

    So yeah! After one year, I can say I'm still home-working.
    And, also helped me to graduate and decide what I really want to do in life, my real vocation.
    I learned a lot too, and eventually will start my online business, selling my art/fashion.

    Happy ending, or starting! [​IMG]


    I wish you all the best and success!
