    would you be interested in writing?

    You could setup a blog or website, this is completely free. Once you have added some good content, you can start to earn money from advertising. I know you wont make a huge income from this, but it would get you started working from home.

    Pick a topic which you are very interested in, and write a piece on that everyday.

    I've given step by step instructions on how to create a website for free, and then add adverts to it so you can start generating income.

    Any questions please leave a comment on this blog.

    I've also found some useful information on these blogs, it helps you to earn small amounts of money from data entry, surveys, receiving telephone calls, reading adverts in emails and online selling.

    I've been doing some work with www.elance.com the past week, all the work is home based, data entry, transcription etc. The only thing is you're competing against people from countries where the hourly rate of pay is a lot lower, so not sure if it would be worth it for you.

    Also have a look at the jobs listed here, most are applicable to us,canada,europe, its quite good, thats where I found the above link.

    Its been updated today to include some Craft type jobs which can be done from home, mainly re-distribution, but it possible to make good money from it if you work hard.

    So many online jobs are out there. In fact, to do any online job, you need not want to invest anything. Make sure, you dont pay anything to get jobs online. It is just that need to pick the one that suits you the best. I hope this helps you and I believe you will find the online job that you love the most. Thanks

    Hi! You should never pay anyone to have a JOB from home. If someone is offering employment and asking for money then it is a scam. However, a HOME BUSINESS is different. If you and I decided to open up our own coffee shop then there would be start up costs right? It's the same for home businesses. You work for yourself and the income potential is unlimited. Not to mention the great people you will meet and the fun you will have along the way. You have to be sure you choose something you are passionate about. You can market makeup, candles, health products, etc. I chose to help people save money on their health care. There are many many people that need medical, vision, or dental benefits. 56 million Americans do not have coverage. Even more need a dental plan.

    If you would like to own your own business helping people save money on health care, please listen to a 15 minute recorded overview by calling 712-432-9598. If you love what you hear..then request an interview by visiting http://www.FreedomAtHomeTeam.com/TCothren ,or call me at 1-866-400-8716.

    If you want to learn working from home, be your own boss and earn good money in the process, the most effective way to do it is taking up affiliate marketing courses. It might be difficult at first, but once you learn it, you will see how effective it is. The best online marketing courses are available at - http://offto.net/joinwa and If you don't want to pay, then get the free course at the site. If you think that it is a rip-off, then I would deeply advise you taking a look at this site - http://www.squidoo.com/earnonnet Loads of people are making big $$$ with online marketing, and you can be one, too. However, keep in mind, that it takes time and dedication and there is no shortcut button!

    Well you could try survey sites. They've worked for me. I review some survey sites to make money that have worked for me at http://cashtutor.blogspot.com What you have to do is complete surveys and offers for companies that want the public's opinion. By doing this, you are able to earn money very easily for simply giving your opinion or trying out sample products. This is a great service that allows one to work from home, on their spare time, at their leisure, and still bring in a nice sum of money every month. People have made up to $1000 easily on this site by just working on it in their spare time. It is not going to replace a real job's salary, but it is a very nice bonus. There are also many features on these web site, such as contests and special surveys, from which you can redeem extra prizes that would be sent to you with your monthly cheque, such as iPods, Xbox 360s, PSPs, digital cameras, gift certificates, and much more.

    No payment from you is ever required, not to sign up, not EVER. Unlike other sites that try to scam people out of their money, these sites never requires you to pay them.

    "If the site doesn't get paid from me, then why would they have this service going?" - The sites don't get paid directly from you, but when you complete an offer or survey, they also get paid a small portion of what you earned yourself. For example, if you complete a survey about computers let's say, you would earn maybe $2 and the web site itself would recieve $0.50 from the company also for getting you to complete the survey. These surveys take little time at all, most taking up less than even 1 or 2 minutes of your time.

    Fraud is also a big deal on the Internet these days, and this site recognizes that. That is why they ask for ONLY three bits of information: Your name, email address and your home address. Yup, that is all. No credit card information, no banking information, nothing like that. All they require is your name and address so that your cheque can be sent to your home every month. Your email address is only required to confirm that you have done the offers and surveys. Fortunately, no spam mail or junk mail is ever sent out by this site and your information is never shared with any other company.

    Personally I have been a member of these websites, along with thousands of other satisfied users, for approximately 1.5 years now and have earned well over $8600 by working in my spare time. This web site has been great to me, also the members and administrator are very friendly, and are always there to help you with a question or problem you may be having. So far, I've listed only positives about this site, because I can't think of a single negative thing about it. Earn money in your spare time, at no cost to you...Easy as that! I give you my word that they pay.

    email me at lancesurveys@hotmail.com if you have any questions

    p.s half the answers you were givens are scams awsurveys, snapdollars, etc. don't worry i deleted most of them

    I started my own home business out of need. I needed someone to watch my dogs but didn't want to kennel them. I couldn't find anyone who would let my dogs hang out around their house the way they do at home. I posted advertisements, was swamped with reservations, quit my job and I never looked back. I get to let others dogs have a home away from home and sleep on the couch, chase squirels, play fetch etc. :) Yeah, dogs!

    They aren't real. My mother in law did one and I let her do it for a long time to see if it was real. She got paid for it. So then I did it and a company hacked and stole all the money in the accounts. It was probably a big set up to make more people do it then take the money. Unless you get a transcription certificate or something. You can do that from home.
