Earning Income From Home, Part 2
In Earning Income From Home, Part 1, I talked about some of the basic parts of the why and how and some considerations concerning working from home. Today, I will cover two ways in which you can work from home right now generating immediate income.
Those two methods are:
- Freelance jobs using skills you have now.
- Surveys, marketing focus groups
Do you know Excel? Do you have an English degree? Project management skills?
These types of skillsets are in demand and are a major source of freelance and consulting work, work done at home.
Elance is an excellent source of freelance work. I am registered there myself.
Here is an article a fellow was kind enough to put together. He likes ODesk, I like Elance. You should check out both.
Surveys and Focus Groups
Getting paid to do surveys is a growing business. There are people who consistently make money by taking surveys and engaging in focus groups. I myself have taken surveys that paid me as much as $80 for my time.
Generally, surveys will pay your between $5 and $75 for expressing your opinion as a customer.
Focus groups will pay you upwards of $150, too.
Can you retire on such things? Will you get rich? No, but you can surefire pay the costs of starting that business you have been salivating over joining but just will not fit into your budget.
Click here to see how you can get started taking surveys so you can get started in that business you have been wanting to join …or make it easier to buy groceries, pay bills or start that savings account so that when the business opportunity for you comes along you will not have to sweat over it. You will have built up your capital account so you can hit the ground running.
To Sum Up
If you want to start a business and you have no budget and no resources, job one is to immediately generate additional revenues with which to start your business.
I separate out the idea of working hourly or by piecework as a different issue of building a business that will pay you 24×7, even when you are sleeping.
The two methods I have proposed are:
- Using your skills as a freelancer
- Using your opinions in surveys to provide much needed marketing data for interested companies.
