How To Make Money From Home | Ways To Make Money



A person by the name of Jessie just left a comment on one of my posts asking why so many online jobs require you to pay them money. Here is the comment:

What Jessie doesn’t understand is that there are very few real online “jobs” and if you actually find one, I would assume it would be free to apply to. Jessie is correct that real jobs will not charge you money.

What Is An Online Job?

A lot of people look for jobs online but they are not all looking for the same thing. Some people are looking for real honest to goodness jobs that have benefits and a boss that keeps track of your work. Other people are just looking for some ways to make money. Many stay at home moms may look for online jobs but in reality are just be looking for something that can fill an hour or two of their days where they can make some extra money. So you see, not everyone is really looking for a job or a career.

I would say that many of the people that look for “work from home jobs” or “stay at home jobs are doing so because they can’t get a job in the real world for one reason or another. They want something simple where they can make some easy money at home. What they don’t understand is that nothing is simple or easy.

Jessie is right that if you happen to find a “real job” you can do online, whatever that is, you should not be charged for it. But does Jessie really understand that any real job will be hard to get and require you to have experience and qualifications? If you are educated and have experience, skills, and a good resume you will probably not be one of the people randomly searching on Google for an online job. You will most likely be networking with your contacts and getting the word out that you are looking for a job, one that can be done most of the time at home.

Most Things Are Just Ways To Make Money

99% of the things you see online that have to do with making money ARE NOT JOBS! They are just ways to make money. Even though they might be advertised as a job or as work, they are really just some sort of money making opportunity. And as many of you know, they might also be things that are misleading or scams.

Because so many things are scams, the few good programs get tainted just by association. The Keyword Academy (where Jessie left his comment) though, is one of the good ones and they do charge a monthly fee after the first month being given away for free.

Should you have to pay to learn how to make money online? Let’s reverse the question and ask why someone would bother to teach you for free?  What is in it for them if they teach you for free? All your schooling had to be paid for throughout the years either by taxes or tuition and so why would you expect to be taught for free how to make money online? You shouldn’t and that is why people charge for their courses and systems.

The only real problem is that because so many of them turn out to be worthless, misleading, or dishonest that people become scared to pay for anything online in the “make money” arena.

    Previously I was employed as a Sr. Loan Officer/ Financial Service Rep for almost 13yr, a cashier for 3yr, and a Medical Ward Receptionist for 3yr. Unfortunately due severe health I became medically disabled to work a regular job and help my husband. Even on disability I can work from home part time not to exceed a certain amount which
    will allow to contribute to the household income

    My Experience is as follows:
    I can type 60-70 wpm, I am fluent in english and spanish, also able to do translations.
    As a medical ward receptionist in the past, I have experience in writing reports. My Macbook Mac OS X is setup for numerous capabilities.
    Your suggestions for Honest, Legitimate for a “Work From Home Job” will be appreciated.

    I have no suggestions for a real job where you get a paycheck. My only suggestion is to learn how to make money online by running your own business of websites. For that there is no better, honest, and legitimate place to learn than at The Keyword Academy and the first month is free so there is no risk to you.

    I’m totally scared of paying for jobs…hmmm… that just doesn’t sound right. I have joined up with some survey sites that are pretty cool. I’m going to also join cashcrate as you suggested. I also just started project pay day but I haven’t gotten that into it yet- I need to get on the ball. 😉 Your page is very helpful, THANKS!

    Regarding he metaphor of having to pay to learn, IE: enrolling in college courses to earn a degree, …Of course you pay to learn, but your don’t receive reimbursement when you fail classes. If this company is offering money back guarantees, does that elude to the fact that this type of business may be so taxing and time comsuming that most may give up, or “fail”? Must we all be extrememly gifted writers of computer savy enough to come up with original ideas? Everything online seems to always “One-Up” the other idea. Sound like a cat and mouse game. Please clarify.

    If you are referring to The Keyword Academy, there is no money back guarantee. The first month is free and if you decide to continue on then you have to pay. It’s your choice.

    If you are hoping to make money online quickly, you should try to get a real job instead. You might be able to make $20 or even $100 online quickly but that is probably not enough for you to call it “decent money”. If you want to make decent money online, it takes time and lots of work. That is just the plain fact and any program or system that promises you can make quick money is lying to you.

    Most people give up and “fail” because they want a miracle. They want easy money as if the rules of economics are different online than they are in the real world. But if you are willing to work and take the time to understand how real money can be made online, TKA can help you. If you are just looking for the quick buck then please don’t bother.
