Work at Home Job – eJury – Updated

October 5, 2012

Homepreneurs often posts leads to work from home jobs but we can’t always verify whether these are legitimate.  Recently, we posted a lead for virtual jurors or eJuries. Homepreneurs signed up for this option to see if we’d be asked to serve on an eJury.

* 10-17-12 update:

Here is proof of payment:

Just thought you’d like to know eJury, L.L.C. sent you $6.00 USD.

Note from eJury, L.L.C.:

Thank you for your participation in Case No. 0818. We value your opinion and hope you enjoyed the experience.
Case No. 0818

This was my second payment in a week.  Not much, but every bit helps.

I’m pleased to say Homepreneurs received a notification yesterday asking for us to serve on a virtual jury, read a case, and render a verdict.  While not one of the 50 selected to serve, we believe this is a legitimate work from home job.  And today – 10-8-12 – I was called again, served this time, and I’ll get paid for my time!  See below for details of in the email:

—————

Dear Cook County eJuror:A new eJury case entitled “RXXXXXXXX, et al v. Community Hospital” has been posted to your eDocket page on this Thursday afternoon.  This is a medical negligence case and you are invited to participate.
This may be the first eJury invitation for some of you, so let me offer some brief instruction. To begin, go to http://www.ejury.comand click on the Juror’s login link. There is a “Forgot your Password” link for anyone who needs a reminder, or feel free to email me directly.  If it’s been quite some time since you signed-up, you may be prompted to update your profile.Once logged in, the rest should be self-explanatory.  The one piece of advice I will offer is this…there is no such thing as a “wrong answer.”  The attorneys are just looking for your personal opinions and feedback. The more feedback you can provide, the better.This case will automatically conclude once 50 verdicts have been entered, which usually takes about 2 or 3 days.
Good luck!
Chris B.

Get Paid to Test Websites from Home

July 2, 2012

This is not a get rich quick job, but a way to make a little extra money on the side to help family finances.  Website owners need to view their websites on various browsers to see how they look.  Website owners also need testers to ensure the site is user-friendly and error-free.  Companies like the ones listed below are hired to design testing and provide reporting to the website owner.  These testing companies contract with interested and qualified applicants to follow testing criteria.  Testing often involves navigating a test website while speaking into a headset and describing the experience.  Testers get paid for websites they test.  This is a great work at home opportunity and can often be done during spare time or at ones convenience.

Please note that these jobs are in high demand.  Requests for testing are based off user profiles.  Testing companies don’t want young men giving opinions on women’s shoes.

These companies will likely offer a few tests per week, not multiple tests per day.  It is not a full-time job, but a way to make extra money from home.

Making Money on eBay

February 8, 2012

This post is a follow-up to the frequently visited article on creating an eBay storefronteBay is a very popular – and potentially rewarding –  business model, inexpensive to start-up, and easy to run.  eBay provides many helpful suggestions, tips, tools, and user forums to help both buyers and sellers.  eBay is also a classic example of a work from home business that even works while you sleep.

eBay may be the most powerful on-line money-making resource.  As mentioned below, 97 million active users use eBay as of early 2011.  Including both buyers and sellers, full and part-time, eBay is the world’s largest online marketplace  Many people dream about working from home; very few are truly successful.  Could an eBay business model offer a way for many to achieve a viable work-at-home goal?

eBay World Wide Stats

With more than 97 million active users globally (as of Q2 2011), eBay is the world’s largest online marketplace, where practically anyone can buy and sell practically anything. Founded in 1995, eBay connects a diverse and passionate community of individual buyers and sellers, as well as small businesses. Their collective impact on ecommerce is staggering: In 2010, the total value of goods sold on eBay was $62 billion — more than $2,000 every second. (1)

Anyone can make money on eBay with a product to sell, a computer, and an Internet connection.  Individuals don’t even need to own a computer or have broadband access; local libraries and community colleges provide these resources for free.  eBay represents the ultimate in business equality:  Sellers are retirees, employed, laid off, college degreed, white-collar or blue-collar persons.

eBay is very attractive from a marketing standpoint.  Buyers are automatically drawn to the site to search for both specific and general products, from printer paper to antique clocks to real estate.  The challenge is finding a product that drives traffic to your listing.  As with any new business, initial challenges exist, but with experience one can become a very good seller.

A good seller views the marketplace from a buyer’s perspective:  What items are popular, needed and/or desired?  What information does the buyer want and what requirements (e.g. free shipping, no reserve) are key to the potential purchaser?  Register initially as a buyer and research the products to better understand the selling process and marketplace.

Here are some tips directly from eBay’s “1-2-3 Start Selling” page:

Get Ready to Sell

> Research similar items

Search or browse through similar items and completed listings on eBay to see how other sellers describe similar items and what categories they typically list similar items in.

> Take a digital photo of your item – make sure it is clear, and upload extra pictures if necessary.

> Calculate postage and packaging costs.  Buyers want to know up-front the total cost of what they’re buying, and you don’t want to end up out of pocket.

Sell, Sell, Sell!

> You’re now ready to list your item.

> Click the Sell button at the top of any eBay page, and this will take you to the Sell page. Enter the name of what you are selling in the yellow search box and click “Sell It”. You will now be guided through the listing process.

> If you are not registered on eBay, you will be asked to register. If you haven’t sold before, you will be asked to create a Seller’s Account.

Complete the Sale

> Make sure you deliver – both in the literal and the figurative sense. Track your sales in My eBay so you know where you are. Send your buyer an invoice by email (PayPal prepares this for you automatically if you use it), and once you have received payment post and pack your item well, and dispatch within the time you committed.

> Make sure you deliver great customer service too – email buyers to let them know you have dispatched their item and include tracking or insurance details, if relevant. Follow up on any questions or concerns they have, and don’t forget to leave fair and accurate feedback.

Congratulations! You’re an eBay Seller. (2)

Work at Home Positions for Full-time College Students

January 4, 2012

This question was posted by Ethen on our Twitter site this evening: What would you say is the best work at home position for a full time college student?

An excellent question, Ethen that requires questions of you:

What is your major/interest?

Do you plan on using this job as a resume builder in addition to making money?  If so, you’ll want to do something related to a potential future position.

What is your skill set?

Answering these questions will help you in your search.  To get you started, here are some possible positions to review:

1) Social Media Consultant – you are probably well-versed in Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites.  Businesses – especially small ones – will outsource Twitter and Facebook updates.  College students are great choices for this because of their technical savvy.

2) Website design and programming – for the same reason as above, small business or non-profits will hire staff on an as-needed basis rather than invest in employee overhead.

3) Writer – if your career goal involves communications, this is a great resume starter.  Many marketing firms and local or online publications can’t afford to hire full-time writers, so they depend on freelancers to fill the gaps.  A good source is Emily Bennington and Professional Studio 365

Other options include some previously covered on this blog: Jobs via the Internet and simple work at home freelance jobs.

And still another idea is anything that makes life easier for the elderly, disabled, and those with limited time.  Snow removal and landscape services are good thoughts.

I hope these suggestions help, Ethen.  Please let us know what works and what doesn’t!

Regards,

Dion D Shaw
