Making Money Online on these Websites
Making Money Online
No matter how much is written about working online from home, it continues to be a hot topic. I just checked with the google adwords tool for the phrase "work from home" and saw that 2,240,000 more people had asked the same question globally this month. I guess making money is always a draw for most people. None of us are millionaires and yes that little extra cash does come in handy.
The work from home opportunities have increased dramatically since the time the internet took root. Today working from home has become an accepted social career. Finding legitimate work from home is no longer a problem. Sure there are some scams that take in the newcomer looking for work at home jobs, but it is possible to weed these out and concentrate on stuff that really allows you to make an income online.
Initially to earn extra cash people would take on data entry jobs from home. It is quite a regular feature even today, but its drone work. It is totally repetitive and there is no creative satisfaction. Which if you consider yourself a writer can be an absolutely frightening experience. I tried it and lasted for exactly one month. Hated every day of it.
Then come the work from home freelance sites. These allow you to bid on jobs and if the employer likes what he sees, you have a project to work on. The rates are all rather flexible. The same 500 word article can fetch you anything from $1 to $10 depending on who you are selling it to. If you can to KWP or Keyword Phrases well to figure in search engine result pages, you can ask for more money per article.
And then there are the membership sites. These allow you to make money online by chatting, gaming, or viewing ads. All of which take a very minimal level of intelligence. They also have online surveys that you get paid for. Unfortunately most of these sites are US centric and do not offer global work at home opportunities.

Where you will find me
Now as I mainly earn money through freelancing I am to be found on Odesk, Elance, Guru, Rent a Coder, Get a coder and Get a Freelancer. I initially signed up for all the sites I could lay my hands on. Now I realize that it was not the great idea it seemed at the time. I have multiple mails coming in from all the sites and I am flooded with mails I take ages to sort out.
So despite having discovered new sites where I can find work such as problogger, wahms, and online writing jobs, besides i freelance, I have decided to stick with the few sites I am comfortable with. So as of now I have projects on in Guru, Elance, and Odesk. I also take up smaller projects on Rent a Coder as and when time permits.
Writing what others want you to write can be economically beneficial but is creatively frustrating. For creative freedom and poetry there is no place like Triond. I am very much present there, joined up in May first week. Have recently been paid for the month of May so, I know they are very prompt with the pay.
I am also to be found on Associated Content with just 4-5 articles. I did join them some time back, but found hubpages to be far more addictive. So I have more hubs here than I have content on Associated Content. On Bukisa with about 35 articles and almost a month, I am no where near their payment threshold of $10. So can't say if they pay or don't. Guess I'll write in an update when these two sites deliver.
Jan 2010 - Bukisa just paid up my first ten dollars. AC is still to get there.
Feb 2010 - AC just paid my dollar and half via paypal in six installments of cents as per each month's performance payouts.
