Great read guys, I’m always looking for extra ways to be more efficient around the office. I just wanted to share something I’ve been doing recently. I run an office and have noticed that unused toner was piling up in storage. Looked into returning but that was no good. Tried out the site http://www.tonerconnect.net/ and was impressed. They had quick service and that payout was nice.
Also please note, I’ve tried my very hardest to confirm the accuracy of all the sources mentioned in the list. To my knowledge every single one of the jobs I’ve listed is legitimate. However, I’m only human and sometimes I make mistakes. If you feel that one of these companies should be removed, let me know. Likewise, if you’ve had an awesome experience with company that hasn’t made it on the list let me know in the comments and I’ll get it added.
Some of the “gotcha” job offers from the past include check-cashing schemes, mystery shopping, medical billing “jobs” that require you to purchase expensive computer software, and craft-making jobs that ask you to pony up the cash for materials before you get started. And let’s not forget about the famous envelope-stuffing scam that was nothing more than a pyramid scheme designed to siphon money from as many people as possible.
Here’s one of interest to people who like talking on the phone, and have a reliable phone connection and quiet workspace at home. Research interviewers help companies gauge customer experience and their interactions so they can improve their business.
In conclusion, please note that survey sites are another great source for extra cash paid regularly. There aren’t exactly online jobs that pay weekly, but you can only get paid as often as you have money pending. Even though the cash out threshold is low on these, you won’t be able to cash out if you aren’t getting survey invites and qualifying into the surveys. But if you have money in your account, the potential is there to get the money almost as soon as you need it.
And, as you can see, they actually have some survey opportunities that are well worth it, like a payout of $6.42 for a quick 11-minute automotive study. There’s other ways to earn aside from surveys like watching videos, checking email and participating in panels. The opportunities available will depend on your demographic information. But once you sign up, you can start earning and even receive a $2 bonus for filling out your information!
I’ve signed up for mystery shopping before but since I live in a small town all the jobs were so far away that the gas money I’d spend cancelled out the pay. However, if you live in a larger city mystery shopping could be a fun and lucrative form of side income.
Have the details of your employment history ready. Online application systems typically ask for the same information as paper job applications, including your contact information, educational background, and employment history including job titles, starting and ending dates of employment, and salary for each position.
• EasyShiftApp.com: Essentially turns you into an on-demand secret shopper. You’re assigned ‘shifts’ by product manufacturers who want people on the ground to go into stores and confirm that their merchandise is being displayed properly. The pay rate for a shift is between $3 and $8 and the money is remitted to you via PayPal.
Have you ever run into a work at home typist ad? They read like this: “Home Typist Needed now!” Boy, don’t they always seems so promising? You can’t help think to yourself, is this really it? Can I finally find a free home typist job?
Do you have an eagle eye for grammar? With the huge amount of copy that exists across the web, companies are always looking for online proofreaders. You could weed out errors on a website or turn internal documents into polished final drafts.
Companies hiring for data entry positions include SportsDirect, which has an evenings and weekends gig inputting scores, as well as the tech startup Ibotta, and the healthcare diagnostic company Alere.
Blogging is nothing but creating your own website (free or paid) where you can write your daily experiences, tips & ideas, share your knowledge or opinion or anything else you think is beneficial to the world.
And there’s another lesson there. If you do try to earn extra money, whether it’s running your own business or hosting dogs, you want to make sure your work-from-home job doesn’t bug your family. Of course, in Neal’s case, bugging your family may be exactly the way to go.

When you phone to order something from a catalog or infomercial, a big office with rows of cubicles may come to mind. But the person on the other end of the line is likely to be sitting in a home office. “It’s a huge and growing industry,” Durst says of companies that hire independent contractors to take calls from home. She says the “home-shore movement” started in response to complaints about the many companies that looked offshore for workers. While some websites such as AlpineAccess.com actually hire representatives, most use subcontractors. Just be aware that the pay may be by the minute rather than by the hour, so you may not be paid for time you spend waiting by the phone. A list of companies that hire call center reps can be found at HomeWithTheKids.com.

Greetings Alexa, AWESOME post.. you really have hit on everything. I went the blogging route.. and love it. Yet I didn’t start there.. as I looked through your list I had to chuckle.. as I remember doing the customer service from home.. See I’m a single mom.. my oldest is now 14 and I started searching for work from home opportunities when she was 1 years old.. I built everything up… and have been full time when my oldest turned 13!! Started by exchanging time for money.. with the customer service and that kept me in the place of having to exchange time for money.. so I decided to build my own business.. and this is what set me FREE.. Love your post as it really leads one through the journey of a VERY possible life.. Thanks so much for putting this information together. Keep Smiling!

I already know what you’re thinking when you read that title, ‘Here comes another one of those get rich quick scams. I don’t blame you.

No I haven’t lost mine! Just be patient.
Affiliate marketing is a general category that includes dozens of ways to make money online. The basic idea, however, is that you’ll generate content that points prospects to a sales page.

I just love this list, my husband was none too happy when he found out that I had paid 100 dollars to an online scam…. So getting frustrated and just about giving up hope on getting a job for home I ran across this…. I was just wondering if there happened to be anymore job opportunities now since it has been a couple of years…. I have three children and I want to afford their extracurricular activities such as baseball and gymnastics… I don’t want to get a job that would keep me from taking them to practice and or games so I have been trying the online job search and as I have mentioned its basically one scam after the next…. I just really want to make it a little more easier on my husband since he is working so hard and going to school so our children and I can have a good life. So to make it easier I want to work from home and help some with bills without the cost of childcare and just putting more stress on him… We don’t have a lot of money as it is…
Companies pay you $1-$2 to solve 1000 Captchas. If your typing speed is good, you can solver 1000 captchas in 1-2 hours. This is a low paying job & you will hardly make Rs.5000-Rs.6000 by working part time.
Writing for content mills is a way to earn a little bit of money quickly since jobs are continually posted. The downside is that content mills pay much, much less than other types of writing jobs. The other con is that a lot of the articles requested on content mills are usually very specific (like advantages of a certain type of printer, the best flea spray, the best hotels in a certain city, etc)

Yes, the print publishing industry has been suffering, but Durst is seeing frequent listings these days for writing, editing and proofreading, particularly for the Web. Even those without writing experience can join the blogosphere. Not only can blogging be lots of fun, Foster says, but also there’s money to be earned blogging for someone else’s site, getting paid to post on your own blog or through revenue-sharing arrangements. A list of blogging opportunities, for which the pay range is less than $4 per post to more than $20 per post, can be found at HomeWithTheKids.com.

Many virtual assistants these days offer a wide range of services for diverse industries. A lot of small businesses and professionals need help with creative tasks done or services provided and they hire virtual assistants with the relevant skills required for doing the tasks or providing the services efficiently.

Some of the in-demand tasks virtual assistants provide include:
If you are flexible with your schedule, be sure to emphasize this in your job application (and later in your interview). Employers appreciate job candidates who are willing to work flexible hours and work shifts that others might not want to take (such as night, evening, or weekend shifts).
