Work From Home

For the past few months, I have been trying to secure myself some paid work online, each day bringing me more and more disappointments. I have grown accustomed to seeing, "limited to the US", "Must be a US resident", or "Only in the US and Canada" on almost all the sites that seem to be a worthwhile venture. It started to really frustrate me being at home, using resources and not seeing any results. Today I am going to tell you 5 sites that are worth pursuing so that you can market yourself and get some paid jobs. All you need to carry out these tasks are, a laptop or desktop computer, reliable internet connection, a Paypal account and a marketable skill. Lets jump right into the 5 sites so you can get started making some money.

Fiverr

This is a site that is open to all freelancers, whatever you are good at, can be advertised by you creating a gig and publishing to the public. It is very easy to start up an account with Fiverr and start selling your skills, especially if it has to do with designing. Beginners are advised to charge the most competitive amount for their services, which is $5, however, most tasks will get you more than just the $5 dollars. Customers are also able to leave you a tip if they are really satisfied with your work and also leave you a good review. Freelancers are paid through Paypal or a Payoneer account. The sooner you apply, the better it will be to start and continue making money.

Guru

This is also a freelance working site. It firstly gathers all the information about you and what you are good at, then it allows you on the site to see what jobs are offered and you send quotes to the necessary employers. Quotes will tell the employer a little more about you and how you are qualified for the job, the time you will take to complete the task and also the amount you will charge to get the job done. Once they review your quote and want to work with you, they will send you a message and details can be worked out and agreed upon. Employers pay through paypal either at the safe pay, one time rate or hourly, there are choices for you. Doing a good job usually guarantees you a good review from the employers, and maybe a tip but you are also able to rate the employers so other freelancers know what to look out for if they are given the chance to work with them later.

Internet Income Jamaica

For those living in Jamaica, and for some other parts of the world, this group is a good avenue to help you make some money. They are a sister owned business, who have trained a lot of other people working with them about earning online. They have courses available that can build your confidence, add and improve your skill set, and also help secure jobs for you once you have completed the courses. This is a good avenue for you, if you have not yet identified what you are good at, or not so confident in carrying out certain tasks. They train in transcription, making calls, and other writing tasks and tell you the best sites on which to market your skills. Payment is also made through Paypal on these sites.

GoTranscript

If you have already learned how to transcribe, then this is a good site for you to join. If you haven't learned, then this would be a good time for you to utilize the course on Internet Income Jamaica.com. This transcription site is easy to sign up for, but in order to work for them, you will have to go through a screening period where you are given a test to see whether you are up their standard of transcription. Here's a tip, all of the transcript values and ways that they use to evaluate you, can be found on their page. Once you follow their terms, then it is easy for you to past their screening test and starting getting jobs sent to you. Payment for this job is also sent through paypal.

Youtube

Do you have a topic that you are passionate about and want to share with others? Do you have something that you can teach? Do you have something that you definitely want to talk about? Youtube can be your avenue of expression, while making you a lot of money, once you are dedicated, work hard and passionate about what you do. In order to make money on Youtube you first have to create an account, put out content regularly, grow your fan base and promotional work will either come to you or you can seek to display ads during your videos. It is best to have a niche for this kind of work. Find an interesting topic or something people are attracted to and create your videos either by videoing yourself or creating animated ones. Youtube has a wide market so something you like doing or seeing is also something others would be interested in. Consistency, motivation and enthusiasm is important in doing this job. The process is pretty simple and Youtube itself helps you to do the right thing in monetizing your account. Make sure to follow all the rules and regulations and the steps as closely as possible.

Most of the sites I have posted here are sites I am already a part of and can testify they they do help to make some money. Those I am not a part of are also tried and tested by people I am close to and know quite a bit about. I hope this was helpful for you though, and can help to prevent you from sitting at home staring at nothing happening for months on end. Try one or two of them out and see results coming in. Good Luck.

      Thank you for sharing :) Even though I live in the U.S , it is still difficult to find steady, good paying jobs online. Your either work 13 hours daily to work for a " writing mill" and maybe earn enough money in a week to pay some bills or find work that pays well but is contract/ temporary or in a sector where it is too competitive. I work full time in the healthcare industry. Even though my income is decent and benefits are good, I would like to work for myself. That is on hold. I wish u and the people of Jamacia the best of luck persuing a better life. Don' t give up ! :)
