Work-At-Home Online Jobs
Hundreds of people are searching the internet for a way to make money. I have spoken to a countless number of people who do not want to go out and get a second job. They don’t have time for that. However, they prefer to work a second, and sometimes a 3rd job online. Thanks to the internet, that’s totally possible.
Online Job vs Online Business
It’s easy to get an online job and online business mixed up. An online job is no different than a regular job. You are hired by a company, and you have a boss to answer to. Most work at home jobs require you to fill out a W-2 for tax purposes. The wages and hours are generally set by the company. The biggest difference is that you are working from home instead of driving to the company. This benefits both parties.
With an online business, you are an Independent Contractor and there’s generally a start up fee involved. You get paid whenever you make a sale or send a referral to the company you’re affiliated with. If you don’t make any sales, then you don’t make any money. You are your own boss and you dictate your own schedule.
As an online business owner, you determine how much money you want to make, and you have to take care of your own taxes. The earnings from an online business have the potential to reach 6 and 7 figures annually, whereas with an online job, your earnings will be enough to pay a bill, or buy dinner.
Where To Find An Online Job
More and more companies are hiring at-home workers because they find it very cost effective. They don’t have to rent a building, pay for utilities, or purchase office supplies when their workforce is at home. However, you have to be careful when looking for an online job. There are a lot of people out there who have nothing better to do than prey on people looking for work.
Here are a few guidelines to follow:
- Check the online history of the company you want to work for
- Never pay for an application or processing fee
- Do not give out personal information like birthday, bank account, or social security number in an email
- Do a google search on the company and look for reviews
The type of work you can expect from an online job includes customer service or tech support over the phone, market research or sales. When my daughters were babies, I used to work for West Telemarketing where I answered incoming calls from people who were calling to order products they saw on TV. I simply read a script and placed their order.
