    hi, I wanna work from home but i have problems with these. its too hard for me to find these jobs. if only i had a friend who is also interested doing this, so we can help each other out. well here are the questions: 1are there sites that are work from home but where you have to work under there schedule, meaning not a "work whenever you want" basis? do you think working at home full time its a job where you can actually get tired (meaning when you just can lay down to rest for the day) of doing something like outdoor work. 2Other is, can anyone here help me with this? I try to look under people here's signature but when i click the signature, its confusing what am i suppose to do. 3last, can anyone please tell me the type of work at home jobs, like marketing which means selling things, data entry means typing, and other you can tell me and what do you have to do?4 or any free extra money sites for the meantime that doesn't include paid by doing offers? but sites that do pay doing other things other than offers and stuff.

    thanks

    There are a lot of questions there but i will have a go at answering some of them for you!
    I know there are companies that you can work for and you have to work certain hours to get paid but im not sure what these companies are and if they work as i have never looked into them but im sure some one will know here.

    As for getting tired, most of the time there is quite a lot to do you just have to motivate yourself and get the work done and once you know you have done it all you can rest!

    When you click on someones signature you are usually just looking at a website they are promoting so they either own the company or they are an affiliate for them, all you have to do if you wish to is look through the site and see if you would be interested in what they have to offer. If you are interested then you sign up as normal or contact some one on the site or the person whos signature you clicked on.

    Im afraid that is all i can help you with as i didn't understand your last couple of questions, hope i have helped though!

    Hi there Fear [​IMG]

    There's no need to be afraid.

    I've been successfully working from home for over a year now. I work as a Virtual Assistant or Freelance Administrative Support Provider.

    It's not a get-rich-quick way of working. Honestly, I don't know of any get-rich-quick schemes that work.

    Anyway, I work about 20 hours a week and make an honest living doing tasks varying from data entry, blogging, article writing, to website updates.

    In the beginning it took me a while to sort through the scams and find something legit. Like I said, I've been doing it for over a year and decided to create a site to help out people with goals similar to myself.

    Check it out for more info.

    fear: 1are there sites that are work from home but where you have to work under there schedule, meaning not a "work whenever you want" basis?A) I believe there are - like taking inbound calls thru companies like WEst, etc... and I think there is a folder for West on here somewhere where you can learn more about that... I have not pursued that avenue myself as usually they want a quiet backgraound and I have 4 kids still at home... [​IMG]

    do you think working at home full time its a job where you can actually get tired (meaning when you just can lay down to rest for the day) of doing something like outdoor work.A) absolutely you can rest whenever you want to - but it is not a get rich quick thing as some others have explained... so you might as well take at least a day off or two every week...

    2Other is, can anyone here help me with this? I try to look under people here's signature but when i click the signature, its confusing what am i suppose to do.A) - there is such a variety of things on here that it is very easy to get confused but most of us had to sort thru the websites and I , for one, contacted people that had sites that I thought looked interesting and asked questions - it helped me a lot to understand how all these things work... also, get a seperate email address and sign up for any free offers and study those as well...

    3last, can anyone please tell me the type of work at home jobs, like marketing which means selling things, data entry means typing, and other you can tell me and what do you have to do?A) yup, you are right, marketing or affiliate marketing is selling stuff online for a commission so it means learning how to market things thru the internet... data entry is usually a scam... some are home based businesses or network marketing where you recruit people that are also looking to make money, etc...

    4 or any free extra money sites for the meantime that doesn't include paid by doing offers? but sites that do pay doing other things other than offers and stuff.A)...uhh... can't read your mind on this one... [​IMG]

    well thanks for the help everyone. the 4th question, i was just wanting to know if there are any extra money online, not a work from home site, just sites were you can make extra money (meanwhile, at least til i find a work from home job). since basically there are sites that pay you for doing offers or surveys, i wanted one without doing offers since they are hard to do for me. by the way you think all those site that say things like "but today you dont pay $100.00, you pay only $29.99 (sometimes it'd say you get it free) but you have to order now. offer will end soon" really pay up? it looks similar to these ones: http://average-joes-income-package.com/ or http://www.paidsurveysetc.com/. some one referred average joes to me and my brother convinced me that what if he works for the average joes so they can get money from me. I just want a work from home site where you can register for free and have a "employer log in" and things like that. well thanks everyone for the help

    Hey Fear,
    The popular vote that I have seen from this forum includes a list of potential instant money making opportunities. None really with the intent of being a millionaire but definately some tht work and will start showing results with some effort! TCLS(The Cash Leveraging System) seems to be the favorite by many members! Hope this helps!

    fear: i was just wanting to know if there are any extra money online, not a work from home site, just sites were you can make extra money (meanwhile, at least til i find a work from home job).

    Have you checked out something like Amazon's Mechanical Turk? You sign up as a worker and choose the tasks that you want to do. It may be that they want you to make 5 posts on different blogs for $1 or review a product, or share a recipe, give an opinion, etc.

    The pay isn't much, but if you just want to make a few extra dollars a day, it will do that. Just google Mechanical Turk and you'll find it.

    Hope that helps,

    fear: since basically there are sites that pay you for doing offers or surveys, i

    Well, there are sites where you can do paid surveys without signing up for any offers, but my experience with paid surveys is that the rewards are not that great. I've made some money with them, but in the end I had to admit that there were better ways of making money.

    Affiliate marketing has made the easiest money for me, I have to say.

    Hi fear,

    What are your interests and how much are you looking to make? Making good money from home is very possible. It does take effort and you cannot have false hopes to make big money over night. It usually takes time, patience and a lot of work. Have you looked into affiliate marketing? Best of luck to you!

    I'm wondering the same thing you are its like I sign up and pay for all these work at home opportunities and get no where I'm tried of investing time and money on this things... it seems like you get a bunch of self help books and directions without the key factors oin how to make that particular thing your trying to advertise its like you get login/passwords to these money making machine which always seem to lead to dead in's. If you know of a system that's is true and works i'm willing to learn....

    fear: i was really going to data entry/typist but due to alot of people here, they say its a scam

    Yup, it's a scam! I was dumb enough to try it twice and thet both basically worked the same... pay a small fee for information on how you can place those very same ads so that others can now pay YOU a small fee so that they can get the instructions to place the same ads, etc, etc....

    If you want to type and do computer type work that way, you might as well give affiliate marketing a try.[​IMG]

    hint... there are many products to promote out there besides work at home stuff...[​IMG]

    My wife started working with West @home a few months ago. They are a legitimate company that basically accepts outsourced call-center type calls for various companies. She enjoys it and it is honest money that can be made with a PC with broadband internet and a phone line.

    West @home will treat you like a regular employee and as you continue to show good work ethic other "skills" become available and each skill is basically a different company with a different payscale. So it kind of works like a promotion. My wife got her second skill during her second month. Most skills pay you based on the time you spend logged in and available, but some will offer commissions based on the orders you input.

    You should really look into it if you havent really tapped your entrepreneurial spirit just yet, as they are one of the better work at home employers around...
