Legit Work from Home Jobs

Hey everyone Missy here… and today’s topic is remote or work from home jobs. I figured this is a good topic because well…I work from home and do several of these to make money to support my family. I would like to help people realize that there is more work from home opportunities out there than just selling Avon, Arbonne, Pamper Chef…etc.

No offense to the reps that sponsor these products or services, they are great products but not everyone likes or wants to sell things. When most people think of working from home they automatically start thinking about selling. But there is more work out there…

  • be your own boss
  • Spend more time with your family
  • Ditch the daily commutes
  • No experience is required
  • Full training and coaching
  • Unlimited income
  • Available to anyone in the world

Video Game Tester – Yes that is correct, everything I was told as a kid about playing video games is totally out the window now because of the internet. The gaming industry is huge, making billions of dollars each year. Before game developers put a new game on the market for purchase they look for gamers to test out the product first. This is a database of all the game manufactures and the games they are currently working on… you can actually get paid to play video games either as money, rewards or in gift cards, I sent this one to my mom.

Youtube Secret – This I haven’t tried but it looks interesting. I hate being in front of the camera I haven’t made any videos for my business but I know I need to, so I may be exploring this option sooner rather than later. Basically, Youtube allows you as a designer to create new content with the already existing content in their editing software. No experience is required there are tutorials and coaching available for both beginners and experienced Youtubers.

Affiliate Marketing – Affiliate marketing has been around forever, before the internet it was catalogs and flyers. Today, There are around 70-80% of online businesses have an affiliate program. Companies as large as Amazon and Nordstrom and smaller companies (theses usually found in Affiliate Networks) understand the importance of getting content out to drive traffic back to the website.  So how does it work, it’s a simple concept. An individual like you or I promote a product or service for the company. If a purchase is made a commission is paid to you. It’s a super simple process, you can market by writing or video reviews of the products you use, on your ads blogs, paid ads….you name it. Companies will pay you to get their products and services out there for them.

I do recommend getting training in affiliate marketing before starting any promotions, especially if you are interested in promoting on Google or Facebook ads. Here are the two training courses I’ve taken to enhance my affiliate marketing strategies and have the most up to date and honest marketing practices.

Online Social Media Manager A social media manager manages various accounts on sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc and carries out simple tasks like posting status updates, sharing content, uploading videos or replying to comments. Companies worldwide require this to help positively promote their products and services.

Data Entry / Transcription/ Voicewriters – Data entry positions are no longer needed in house for companies. Data entry requires very little specific training to do the job, so it’s fairly easy to get started as a freelancer. There’s no ramp-up time and no need for extended training or certifications, which isn’t always compensated so basically you can just start plugging away at the keyboard.

This is just a small selection of online jobs or freelance work ideas that require little to no experience to start. If you are really driven to work for home or to be your own boss, I recommend sitting down and exploring what you’re most passionate about and then do a little research on the industry. More than likely the internet has created some kind of opportunity for you to make money in that niche.

About the author:

Hi there…my name is Missy and I am an entrepreneur of a Photography business and I’m an Affiliate Marketer.  Over the past 9 years I’ve been working on building my dream career as a travel photographer. Trust me when I say my road had been bumpy…sometimes over grown… a few ditches were crossed but I’m forging my way through. I created I Want This In My Life because well honestly…I needed to talk about something else besides photography.

I recently had a car accident and I haven’t been physically able to go out and create new work, which has been depressing me greatly. However, I still have a wealth of knowledge on building my brand…which overjoys another part of me because I can pass that on to someone else, like you. I am a giver, a helper…I’m a people person. So while I’m going through this physical struggle I want to focus a little time on helping others succeed in the marketing and work at home arena. If I can help even 1 individual come into the world of entrepreneurship with less of a struggle than I did…well this blog will be worth it to me.
