Have you ever wished you could spend more time with your family? Have you ever wanted to
give up the stress of commuting to your office or worksite every day? Have you ever dreamed
of beginning your workday in your pajamas?
There have always been jobs that people could do at home. In years past, housewives would
care for someone else’s child, or take in sewing tasks that they could perform in their own
homes. However, in this age of information, the internet has opened the door to a whole new
realm of opportunities for creating wealth while staying home.
There are several choices a person has when he or she decides to begin making an income at
home. There are corporations that hire people to perform tasks at home. These corporations
“outsource” these tasks because not only does it give people an opportunity to stay at home
while making a living (which keeps employees happier and causes them to work longer term) it
is often more cost efficient for the company. There is little to no ‘overhead’ for an
employee that is not onsite, although many of these work-at-home employees receive company
Some of the most common corporate-sponsored work at home jobs are:
Customer Service Reps
People who decide to work with a corporation that offers work from home opportunities should
first research the corporation. How long have they been in business? Are they reputable?
Are there others who work for them who will tell you what you can expect? How will you be
paid? Are benefits available?
Another, very popular way of working at home is what is known as Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliates are people who sign up with companies to market their products at their own
expense. The companies, in turn, give a percentage of all sales to the affiliate as
payment. Some companies offer up to 75% of the sale to the affiliate. Some individuals who
do affiliate marketing have made a killing online marketing the products of others. Three
of the internet’s top affiliate marketers, all who have become wealthy online, are:
