Critics have claimed that the internet is evil. However, World Wide Web allows many people opportunities that were previously unavailable to them. People with disabilities and othes who wish to work from home can telecommute by working online. Years ago, these kinds of jobs were few and far between, but recently many major corporations are developing telecommuting jobs and online employment scenarios for many reasons. One big advantage is that if an employee is telecommuting, the need for maintaining work space for that individual is no longer necessary, thus saving the company on overhead costs.
There are lots of ways to make money online without having to sell on ebay and that sort of thing.
Writing and Photography
Try online publishing. Whether you are an accomplished writer or a novice, this is are really good way to make money on the internet without dealing with all those selling schemes and get rich quick routines. In fact, you can even make money on interesting pictures you have taken.
As always, write about what you know. The subject matter can be just about anything. You can even put your favorite recipes and pictures online and get paid every time they are viewed. You can write about your personal thoughts and original poetry. If you don’t think you are that creative, you can write commentaries on movies, television shows and even reviews and tips on video games or amusing stories that you have experienced.
Both of the following sites are free to join and publish through and are very user friendly when it comes to publishing and editing your work. You don’t even have to have any software because you can write you work with their online editors.
Triond.com is a great site. I strongly recommend checking them out. I have been writing for them for two years and have never had a problem with being paid. The best part is that Triond has no minimum earnings requirement in order to get paid through PayPal. All you have to do is write the text and Triond designs your page and arranges for the advertising so you don’t have to know a thing about web page design.
You can either use their online editor boasting an excellent toolbar. Using the online editor makes it a snap to add images or imbed a YouTube video in your articles. Its toolbar has buttons similar to Microsoft Word and has a preview feature.
You can even drag and drop of copy and paste into the text box. Inserting links are incredibly easy. You can highlight any text and choose the insert link icon and it will walk you through the whole process.
They have a table that tells you your article statistics and has good tutorials and the staff are very supportive and helpful. Your profile page is automatically updated with your newly published work and is easily customized.
They have a great messaging feature to make it easy to communicate with the other writers as well. Another great feature is that you can also edit your writing after publication.
Bukisa.com is pretty much a Triond clone. A nice page is automatically created and updated for you that lists your articles with a brief intro that you write in the online editor.
They have an online editor that is similar to the Triond one and your writing will go live usually within a few minutes after submitting. You can edit them after publishing and your articles can even get raises when you have readers rate them and when they put more advertising on your pages. This site also publishes how-to videos and even audios.
If writing isn’t your thing, try some of the Paid to read email sites, survey sites. If you don’t get the results so are looking for, try rewording the search phrase and maybe even different search engines. I am partial to altavista.com myself.
Customer Service Agents
There are a number of legitimate online positions available. Keep in mind that when I say legitimate I mean that there is never a fee charged for any of the positions mentioned in this article. You can read more about online customer agent positions and submit applications at:
alpineaccess.com – requires a high speed connection.
Arise.com – another good site for at home employment. They also offer a four week training program.
cloud10corp.com – also offers online part time positions.
workingsol.com - this is call center work but you would be working at home.
It is time that the U.S. Government gets involved with this new concept. By encouraging U.S. corporations to develop telecommuting jobs, countless tax dollars could very well be saved by making gainful employment possible for those who previously were forced to sit at home doing nothing while trying to survive on inadequate Social Security checks. I should know I am one of those people.
