Earn money at home via the Internet

Freelancing

A wide variety of sites list freelancing opportunities. Freelancing isn't limited to writers and designers. You'll find opportunities for administrative assistants, accountants, computer programmers and other professions.

Major job boards and small, niche sites post freelance opportunities. I recommend Elance, Guru and FreelanceSwitch.

You can post a profile and portfolio. Then, browse projects and submit proposals. You'll get a limited number of free bids. You get more bids with paid memberships, which start at $10 monthly. As a freelancer, you won't have the security of a full-time job. Projects could be sporadic. You may spend more time finding work than working when you start out. But you set your own hourly or per-project rates.

Customer service and sales

Experienced customer service and phone sales reps can also work virtually. You'll need a quiet environment, a computer, broadband and a landline. You may be required to pay $10 to $50 for a background check.

LiveOps, AlpineAccess, WestatHome and WorkingSolutions list opportunities. Pay varies, but expect to earn between $6 and $30 hourly. You set your hours.

Virtual concierge

Are you resourceful? Do you have high-end customer service experience? Then you could be a virtual concierge.

Virtual concierges handle errands and inquiries. You may receive mundane assignments like booking reservations and finding answers to questions. Or, you may get wacky requests. For example, you may need to find a dress worn in a movie or hire animals for a child's party.

Pay for a virtual concierge with VIPdesk starts at $14 hourly. You need a home office, a dedicated landline and broadband.

Direct sales

If you enjoy selling, consider direct sales. You're not limited to home décor and kitchen products. Many companies have programs, not just Avon and Tupperware. You're sure to find products that match your interests.

Visit the Direct Selling Association's site for advice and information. There's also a directory of direct selling companies. You can visit a company's site to learn about its program.

There is a catch to direct sales. You may be required to purchase products to sell. Don't invest more than you can afford to lose. And make sure the company buys back unsold stock. Profits vary, based on the product.

Tutoring

If teaching is your passion, become an online tutor. You connect with students via online chat.

Be prepared to take a rigorous test. Teaching experience may be required. Start by visiting Smarthinking.com or Tutor.com. Expect to make $10 per hour.

Transcription

Have strong typing skills and a good command of the English language? Consider transcription work. Experience is required, and you must type 75 words per minute. Visit Tigerfish.com and ProductionTranscripts.com. Shopping and surveys

You've probably heard about mystery shopping and survey taking. These opportunities won't keep food on the table. But they can supplement your income.

Mystery shoppers pose as customers and review stores. You earn between $5 and $100 per review. The Mystery Shopping Providers Mystery Shop.org offers an extensive database of opportunities.

Marketing companies will pay you to answer questions or join focus groups. You may earn a dollar or two per survey. In rare cases, you'll earn a few hundred dollars. Try SurveySavvy, SurveySpot and American Consumer Opinion.

Telecommuting

You don't have to be your own boss to work from home! You just need to find telecommuting opportunities.

Regular job boards often list telecommuting work. Use "telecommuting" as a keyword. Or, visit Telework Recruiting or FlexJobs. Membership starts at $15 monthly. The National Telecommuting Institute helps individuals with disabilities find telecommuting opportunities. It offers listings and advice.

A warning

Work-from-home scams abound online. Research any opportunity diligently. Be especially wary of get-rich-quick offers.

Check companies at the Better Business Bureau and on Google. Enter the company name along with "scam." This can alert you to others' bad experiences. Be wary of opportunities that require a substantial investment. In most cases, there shouldn't be up-front fees for getting started. Except as noted above, don't buy kits or pay for opportunities.
