The intent of homepreneurs is to offer the reader with home job suggestions or at least work-from-home opportunities. The ongoing postings have changed to discuss financial topics, branding, marketing, sales and others. These topics certainly have value and merit, but are not overly helpful without an income stream.
Today I want to re-dedicate this site to its primary function: Provide real ideas for earning real income.
In today’s world, one must often patch together multiple part-time jobs to bring in enough to survive and pay the bills. This trend is likely to continue for at least the next few years if not longer. The upside to part-time work is schedule and hour flexibility, even if the pay is not stellar. Food on the table and a roof overhead is most important.
Here are four suggestions for today, as always please do research to verify the claims:
1) Like to surf the web and test web sites? www.usertesting.com pays $10 per site provided your demographic profile fits the client
From the site:
Website owners will pay to watch a real person use their site so they can discover where their site is confusing. UserTesting.com has a panel of “user testers” to do this. If you become one of our user testers, then whenever your demographic profile is requested, you’ll have an opportunity to earn money using a website.
2) Axiondata.com is data entry company based in Pittsburgh. Though the site claims no openings at this time, filing out an availability form costs nothing and a project may become available at any time.
From their web site:
You will be paid on a per-piece basis. Each of our projects is different, varying in complexity. For some projects, the amount of data to be entered is small and people are able to input anywhere from 2-4 forms per minute. Compensation for these projects ranges from 4-8 cents per form. Other projects are complex, requiring 30-60 minutes per document, with compensation ranging from $5-9 per document. All contractors working on the same project are paid the same per-piece rate.
3) Alpineaccess.com – Alpine Access is a home-based call center with opportunities for benefits and advancement. This is not a contactor position, but an employee-employer relationship.
From the site:
We establish pay rates based on the experience and skill sets needed for each of our clients and their programs. In general, the average rate is about $9.00 per hour
4) Editfast.com – Do you enjoy proofreading or editing? Editfast.com may be for you. This site deals with wide-ranging topics from Ehow articles to writing contests.
From the site:
This is a freelance opportunity. We cannot guarantee that there will be work available, but if you have the qualifications EditFast’s clients are looking for, and if you are patient, there may be projects for you in the future. You should be aware, however, that EditFast has no obligation to provide work for you now or at any time in the future. Completing the registration process and passing the EditFast review does not necessarily mean you will receive projects. It simply means you are eligible to receive projects and your Web page is available for EditFast’s clients to view and perhaps choose you as their editor. If you are selected for a project by a client or by the EditFast administration you will be notified and that project will be directed to you.
None of these employers request any money to apply. Beware of the many scam jobs out there that do charge or promise get rich fast schemes.
