    Your answer is actually right in the question.  You say "I have tried a lot"  that is the problem.  Yes there are a lot of scams but there are very good opportunities.  It just seems that so many people jump from program to program and never give it enough time.

    For the beginner I dont reccomend MLM but rather affiliate marketing.  There are so many things you can do with affiliate marketing and you can start with absolutely no money or you can invest a little money in a few things but thats totally up to you.

    My hubbie and his partner do quite well with affiliate marketing.  One point I will give you is think outside the box.

    If you take a look at my hubs, they may help to answer your questions. One is about what to look out for as far as being scammed and the other talks about affiliate program opportunities.

    Hi, this is masmasika.  I was like that too when I started.  It took me almost one year before I was able to earn more that $100 from my articles in Helium.  So far this is the only site that I am earning now.  I am earning more than $200 from Helium monthly.  Read my two hubs about Helium.  It might help you.

    Or, instead of reading rzfp786's hub, you could read the original article that it was copied from … scams.html

    It depends. The secret is to find something that makes some money and replicate it in a hot market - this is the only way I have ever made good money. Everything else just takes focus and work.

    I'm sure there are some real work-from-home jobs. However, people really have to do their research. The legitimacy and credibility of the company really matter. Actually, call the company just to check on them. Do a little background check and ask a lot of people online or within a circle of friends. Unfortunately, there are so many work-from-home scams. Maybe about 98% of all internet advertisement regarding work-from-home are all scams. We all have to be careful with these programs.

    I agree with you about that.  I have found that you have to put your own spin on things to make money.

    Unfortunately, there are a lot of work from home scams on the internet. If you can afford the start up costs, consider starting your own online store. If you use a wholesaler who offers drop shipping, you don't even need to maintain an inventory.  To find out more about drop shipping, go to the website for WorldWide Brands. They offer free downloadable ebooks and videos to help you get started.

    I want to add my suggestion, there are no real work from home jobs are available, if you really want some work from home jobs then you have to try yourself for getting freelance jobs, I want to give my suggestion that never pay any registration fees to any website, it will just waste your time n efforts

    I know exactly how you feel, over the last 3 years I have tried many so called money making programs and wasted a lot of time and money until I came across. Stephen Pierce MRMI Super Cash membership which gives people the ongoing support they need as they create online businesses from their homes yet it is also priced very economically so that it can fit most any budget. The initial fee is only $1, plus as a bonus you can get his "Make Real Money on the Internet" for Free just pay postage. For more information go to

    Okay. you can try GDI has the info but if u want a direct link you can go to

    You have to WORK it can take at least a month or two before you see good results.

    The problem is that alot of people will call GDI a scam but its the same people who expect to be able to sit around and do NOTHING and make SOMETHING..
    Its bull.

    I use it, It works.

    you can try it , and if works it works

    if it dosent, try and work a little harder and be more paitent.

    that applys for ANY online job as well.

    Wow, am I ever late to this convo -

    I personally am on Elance as "JamestheJust" and have made a good part-time income (working full time during the day and staying up like a vampire).

    I'm now 100% on Elance, with a dozen or so websites in AdSense as well as affiliate product sales (average about $400 a month).

    My advice is to learn how to create a website (WordPress is incredibly user-friendly), and use it for affiliate product sales.

    Writing a review per product per page is a great way to close sales, and has worked great for me (when I actually get the time!).

    I've Hubbed about freelance writing, too, and my website has a couple of posts on getting work on Elance.

    I'd recommend Elance over the others since they have a $50 minimum on jobs - it's amazing how many internet marketers (like me, though I don't do this-->) try to take advantage of writers with $1-$3 articles.  Sorry. Not me...anyway: fully recommend them, or oDesk, Guru, Demand Studios...HubPages is a great way to make money, too...though I haven't yet here  smile

    Best of luck - although you asked the question over a year ago.

    Hi Ronnie. I have been researching this subject for years and have been scammed many times. I was so tired of it that I decided to make my job, researching companies to see if they are legitimate or not. Please go to my website where I have listed jobs that are legitimate and whom I currently earn money from. My website address is I promise that none of these jobs are scams. I update my work at home jobs on a weekly basis. Good luck and please let me know if you have any luck. Take care, Daisyhub.

    Hi Ronnie, I am currently working from home as an artist specialising in portraits, movie scenes and military art. I have only been going for 18 months and made a £1,000 loss in the first year due to advertising and self promotion. Hopefully this second year will be better, but the ecomomic situation here in Britain, like elsewhere in the world,  is hard for people at the moment. Hopefully I will be successful, fingers crossed!

    I think there are ways to do it, and HubPages may even be one of them, it's just that it isn't as easy as people seem to think it is.

    Like succeeding in anything else, it takes time, effort, research persistence, etc., etc., etc.

    Good luck! I'm trying to figure it all out myself.

    It depends on what you're looking for Ronnie. I worked online for several years for a publishing house located on another State (USA), but then I had worked at their offices before when I lived there. They just re-hired me to work over the net. I have since moved on. I have known people who have looked for such opportunities for years and have not found them. It is harder here than in Europe. If you can translate into another language (that's what I used to do), you can find reputable jobs online. If you can teach something, you can tutor. If you can offer technical support, or create websites for people, you pretty much have it made. Otherwise, you have so be selling something, and know where to go, so that you won't get robbed.
    I wish you well.
