Online Jobs

Updated on May 31, 2015

High Demand?

Why are online jobs suddenly in high demand? Well lets see there are more and more families coming to the realization that it will take at least two incomes to provide for a family in today's society. This is why you encounter so many scams for stay-at-home-moms. Why target stay at home moms? Because, statistically more women are apt to look for at home work to stay with their children than men are. So, they target women in these scams.

More and more people are becoming aware of all of the possibilities the web has created. They are searching for ways to earn money that better suits their way of living. Lets face it not many people enjoy getting up at the brink of dawn to put in a day of hard work that barely covers the bills. Wouldn't an online job be more appealing?

Also, more and more people are finding themselves unemployed and unable to make ends meet. Finding jobs in today's economy is hard and is not for the faint of heart. So they turn to online jobs instead. Also, many retirees are finding that making ends meet are harder than they thought with the limited income they are receiving and are looking for ways to earn a little cash on he side to help them through the month.

College students often don't have the time to commit to a job. Weather it be a hectic school schedule, night classes, or getting necessary volunteer hours required for a degree. They turn to looking for online jobs.

Finally, teenagers are becoming even more knowledgeable about the internet than many adults are. They are also cashing in on some side money while they are in school for some extra spending money that Mom and Dad won't dish out.

Not Paying Enough?

Lets face it we have all found online jobs that actually do pay. However, we find ourselves having to work many more hours per week than we would at a regular job to make any kind of sustainable income. Well lets face it if you want to make money you are going to have to give up the online surveys. When added up online surveys only average out to be about $2.00 per hour. Why? Because the time to complete a survey takes more time than it is worth if you are looking for a good paying income to support a family. However, if you are just needing a little side money this might be the one for you. It is also simple to do for someone who has limited internet/computer knowledge.

If you are really wanting to make money online and for it to pay enough to cover actual bills you are going to have to put in some dedication. Many Data Entry jobs require you to type so fast before you will even be considered to qualify for the job. So start practicing if you would like to find a job in this area.

If you are wanting to work for Google through Leapforce or some other similar website you also have to go through a screening before they will allow you to work for them. What people fail to realize is that to make money online you have to be knowledgeable of the work you are trying to get. Online tutors have to have a degree, most web designers also have to have a degree or so many years experience put in before you can apply.

If you are wanting to become a blogger be sure to find many reliable clients that are creditable before you start. It also wouldn't be a bad idea to create an online portfolio of your work.

If you are looking to be a freelancer and just write this will take time and commitment. Be sure to write a blog/article daily and actually put time and dedication into it.

Bottom line it is not easy to find legitimate online work if you are not committed or have experience. Yes, you can earn money but most wont sustain a family. Some are fortunate t be able to do this but most of these people worked extremely hard to get to where they are today. Remember if it seems to good to be true it most likely is.
