Helpful Websites That List Real Stay At Home Jobs And Money Makers
Finding Legitimate Stay At Home Jobs
The concept of working from home has gotten a bum rap as a result of excessive scam ads targeting people in serious need of stay at home jobs. This is unfortunate because many people give up before they find the genuine stay at home jobs and legitimate business opportunities. The best advice I can ever share before guiding a person to these opportunities is to never pay to learn where the stay at home jobs are. This information is free on many websites. You first must know what to look for, how to use search terms effectively, and to recognize misleading advertisements and content.
If It Looks Like A Duck and Quacks Like A Duck
Guess what? It's probably a duck!
When you receive an email, come across a website, or click on ads which promise you thousands of dollars for little to no work if you will just pay $49.00 for a little kit, run!
These scams are so common and millions, yes millions fall victim to this type of scam far too often.
I will say there are some websites which offer information about stay at home jobs for a fee, but why pay a fee, there are many websites which give you this information absolutely free and I am going to share some of these websites with you. In addition to listing these websites, I will share some tricks and tips with you about making money online and from home.
Know How To Search For Legitimate Work At Home
One big tip for finding legitimate work from home is to not use the search terms, "work at home" or "work from home." There is good reason for this. You must understand that these keywords are highly competitive and those with legitimate websites and scam websites are fighting to rank using these keywords.
Some great keywords to use instead are:
- "hiring home workers"
- "home office required"
- "independent contractors needed"
If you know what type of work from home you would like to do, search under those terms too. To give you an idea of the type of work at home that is common, below is a list of common stay at home positions.
- Customer Service Representative, Customer Service Agents, or Customer Support
- Virtual Assistance
- Proofreading and Editing
- Mystery Shopping (Yes, this is real. You must know where to look and I will get in to that.)
- Teaching and Tutoring
This is only a small list of all the ways you can make money from home, but this will give you an idea of how to search.
Websites Which Provide Free Lists Of Stay At Home Jobs
The following are websites I know for a fact offer free listings of stay at home jobs. You also must realize that most of these sites support themselves through ads like Google Adsense. Be careful not to click on these ads, because this is where some of those scam ads are. Pay attention only to the content and remember to use good judgment.
This site is packed with hundreds of stay at home jobs and freelancer work. The ads don't interfere with the search and this has by far the most work at home jobs I have seen.

Some Final Tips About Finding Work From Home
Another good way to find work from home is to search for "freelancer" work. There are many freelancer communities that you can sign up with. Most tend to offer free accounts. You must spend quality time on your profile and be very professional, but working as a freelancer is an excellent way to make money at home.
