AVOIDING SCAMS WHILE YOU WORK AT HOME

With the advent of internet, business opportunities and home based job are increasing day by day. Millions of people who want to earn a nice income with minimum effort from the comfort of their home through the Internet. Chances of Scammers are abound through the Net as thousands of legitimate companies  are offering real work at home jobs to people.

Since working at home is attractive, false job offers are prevalent on the net. Some common work at home scams are noticeable, like envelope.

Work at home scams take many forms. Most of the companies do not guarantee regular salaried employment for the home based workers. They do not mention how many hours you would need to work without pay. Some others require you to spend money on instructions before getting the job. Some companies require paid training. Therefore work at home scams cost victims thousands of dollars and also valuable time.

In order to avoid being a victim of work at home scammers, you need to scrutinize the company before accepting any job. In fact legitimate companies provide all the information in writing. Here are some tips to avoid work at home scams:

Firstly,  if you need to provide personal information, avoid giving it to an unknown person or company. Provide personal information only to the company that you confirm is legitimate.

Secondly, you can check the company by typing the name of the company in the search box of Better business Bureau. If there is any complaint about that company, avoid contact with it.

Thirdly, there is no easy road to wealth. Any job requires some effort to earn better income. Therefore beware of companies that promise to make you rich overnight, there is no such thing.

Reshipping fraud is becoming a common work at home scam. This type of job, the home based worker needs to receive, repack and then mail the merchandise to a foreign address. They are promised a substantial amount of money. But the worker may not know that the merchandise was paid for with stolen credit cards.

The home based worker would therefore become a part of receiving and mailing of stolen goods without their knowledge. The worker receives the merchandize, repackages with their own funds and told it will be repaid at time of pay day, it gets worst!

They are then told, their pay will be via cashier’s check, but oddly it’s for more they owed. The worker is told to deposit the check and send the difference to the employer’s overseas bank account. Eventually, the cashier’s check bounces and owe their bank the amount of the whole check.

If you want to select a legitimate work at home job, then do not accept any job offer that promises to provide high income for a part time job. Some companies would promise you get rich quick schemes. Remember only hard work and dedication can help you earn a good income from home. Legitimate companies do not charge anything to hire you. Ask for references, if you are not sure about the legitimacy of a company. Beware of Scammers!

CREATE CONTENT FILLED WEBSITE AND MAKE MONEY

Despite popular misconceptions, you do not need a product to sell in order to make money online.  Instead, you can offer information that will generate income by way of advertisements.  Therefore, you should consider developing your own Content Filled Website as a way to make money writing articles online, because many people are using the internet to research, for project or advice and this may result to a lot of money making potential.

The first step in creating a content filled website is to create a plan.  What do you want your website niche or theme to be?  While it is important to choose a topic that is profitable or at least in demand, you will want to consider your likes and dislikes.  You will find it easier to make money and write articles on a topic that you feel passionate about.

Next, you will want to brainstorm.  Envision your website, such as how it is organized or what articles you want to have posted.  You should create an outline of the topics you want to cover.  For example, if your website has a prom fashion theme, do you want to have separate sections for hair, dresses, and makeup?  What specific articles do you want to write?  Typically, you should have one article per page.

Speaking of those articles, you may want to create a short outline for each article. What do you want to tell your readers about?  In keeping with prom fashions, you can write an article that shares tips for prom dress shopping online.  Points that you may want to cover could include checking size charts, looking for free or discounted shipping, or tips for comparing prices. An outline can help you stay focused.

Next, it is time to start writing your articles.  When doing so, you want to get your point across, but don’t ramble or make them longer than needed.  Of course, it is important to inform your readers, but you may want to leave your articles with an open ending.  Your readers will want to be well-informed, but you also want to leave them looking for a little bit more.  This is what will result in clicks for your advertisements.

Proofread your articles and then proofread them again.  Even if you have access to spell check and grammar check, there are no guarantees that these are right.  As for why proofreading is important, an error free website will stand apart from the competition.

Once you have finished writing all of your articles or at least started writing them, purchase web-hosting and a domain name.  This, however, is when you may start to worry.  If you are unfamiliar with HTML, you can still make money with your articles.  Look for web-hosting companies that give you access to free website building programs.

Once your web-hosting account is set-up and running, decide on a design or theme.  This is easy if you are using a website building program, as they are laid out for you to choose from.  Your website should be professional, attractive on the eyes, and easy to read.

As previously stated, your content filled website can make money through advertisements.  Get started with Google AdSense.  You are paid for each click your advertisements receive.  As long as you have quality and unique content on your site and it is not adult in nature, you should be approved.  If you are denied, review their terms of service to make the necessary adjustments.  Add the advertisements to your website.  Do not worry, doing so is easy and explained in a step-by-step process.

Affiliate programs are also suitable as a way to make money online. You can place catchy banners on your website if approved. In order to make more money, you can apply for programs that are in line with your website. Depending on the program you choose, example, Prom Fashions, display advertisements for prom dresses, beauty products and so forth, you will receive a percentage of sale which you help to generate.

KNOW HOW TO GENERATE PASSIVE INCOME WITH ARTICLES WRITING

Do you know that you can use articles as a way to generate passive income? If you’re new to writing articles online for pay, you may love the projects that you receive and the upfront payments that you may get from those projects.

If you weren’t already aware, passive income is occasionally referred to as the gift that just keeps on giving.  Why?   Because you earn money over an extend period of time.  When writing for upfront payment for a client who is seeking unique content for their website, you typically receive one lump sum payment.  Yes, this payment is nice, but how would you like to be earning money on an article that you wrote a year ago?

As for how you can start generating passive income, you have a number of different options.  Before reviewing these options, it is important to focus on the word “generating.”  Yes, you can earn money overtime, but you may not start seeing huge profits right away.  The money will start coming in soon, but it may take a couple of months or more.

One of the best ways to create passive income with your articles is to create your own specialty website.  This website should have a theme that is either a popular subject or one that interests you.  For example, do you have  homeschool for your children?  If so, you can create a website that shares tips with other homeschooling parents.  These tips and other information will be shared through your written articles, which will be displayed on your website.  The same will be said for blogs, but readers often require updated content, sometimes on a daily basis.

As for how you generate passive income through a website or blog, you do so through advertisements.  One program that comes highly rated and recommend is Google AdSense.  With this program, you generate income each time that a reader clicks on your advertisements.  There are also affiliate programs, where retailers give you banners to post on your website, alongside your articles.  Each time your website or blog generates a sale, you receive a percentage of that sale.

If you opt to receive passive income by way of your own niche website or blog, you need to make sure that readers find you. Unfortunately, you may face a lot of competition online.  The good news is that you can write more articles to do so.  Since article writing is your specialty, this isn’t hard.  Write unique articles and submit them to online article directories.  Be sure to include a link to your website.  You may be surprised how many readers follow that link.  The more visitors your website or blog receives, the better your changes are for getting your advertisements clicked on.

Although creating your own content filled website is one of the best ways to generate passive income, as you are in control at all times, there is an easier approach.  That approach involves finding revenue sharing websites.  These are content filled websites, but they rely on professional writers to compose it.  In exchange, you may receive a percentage of the revenue generated from your articles or you may receive an already agreed upon bonus.  If you cannot afford the cost of web-hosting, which is needed to start your own website, this is a great approach.

As for how you can find these revenue sharing websites, perform a standard internet search online.  Also, many online communities are devoted to writing articles online.  If you are not already a member, join.  Members of these communities often share moneymaking opportunities they came across online, revenue sharing websites included.

As listed above, there are different ways to generate passive income. If you specialize on article writing to make a living, it may be the best to spice up your writing. Look for upfront paying clients or paid submission websites online and generate passive income in your spare time. Certainly, you will not go wrong by using this approach.

ARTICLES WRITING FOR YOURSELF OR FOR SOMEONE ELSE

Do you want to write for yourself or someone else? Will you prefer to write Articles as a way to generate income for yourself? The best decision you will have to make involves who you want to write for and to ensure your choice is right, there are options to be taken. Then examine the pros and cons of what options to involve in.

The biggest pro or plus side to writing articles for yourself is the freedom to choose your own topics.  This means that you could write about a topic you already know about or a topic that you are passionate about.  For example, do you homeschool your children?  If you do, you may enjoy and prefer writing articles on the subject of homeschooling, and so forth.

Next, is the fact that you can do what you want with your own articles.  When you write for someone else, you normally give up rights to your work.  This means that you cannot use those articles again.  This isn’t the case when you right for yourself.  You can do what you want with your articles and use them as many times as you want, and just about anyway that you see fit.

Another pro or plus side to writing articles for money for yourself versus a client is the ways you can make money.  In fact, you may be surprised how many moneymaking opportunities there are for articles.  For starters, you can use your articles for newsletters, you can start your own content filled website that displays moneymaking advertisements, you can submit them to article directories, or you can even sell your articles outright (after you have already written them).

The only true con or downside to writing for yourself is that you may not get paid right away.  If you want to use your articles to create a website, which can make money through advertisements, you need to make sure that others see your website.  This involves article marketing.  However, as stated above you can submit your articles to article directories, which are considered important website and blog marketing tools.

In keeping with internet marketing, it isn’t hard.  You need to do a little bit of research to learn a few helpful tips and tricks, but it is more than possible for you to market your own website.  After a close examination, you will see that not only can you submit articles to article directories with a link back to your website or blog, but you can also write keyword optimized articles.  When you do so, the search engines will find your website quickly and easily.

As for writing for someone else, it too has its pros and cons.  Perhaps, the biggest pro or plus side to working with clients is that you are paid and often right away.  Most professional webmasters will pay their clients within 14 days.  There is no having to wait until your website or blog generates traffic to start making money.

One of the downsides to writing articles for clients, as opposed to for yourself, is that you are told what to write.  For some this is actually a benefit, as your client should describe in detail what they want and expect from you.  For many, this makes writing articles for money easier.

Finding clients to write for can be tricky, but you have numerous avenues to try.  Start with creating your own website.  List a few of your sample articles, outline the niches you specialize in, as well as your rates.  You can also actively search online bidding websites and job boards.

The approach you’re going to take will depend on your personal preferences. Try as much as possible to give both options a trial. Have time schedule for writing for your clients and also for yourself. Within period of time, you may earn more money writing articles both for yourself and someone else.

AVOID EMBARRASSMENT TIPS IN WRITING ARTICLES FOR MONEY

There are number of steps that you can take to reduce the Embarrassment frequency in writing Articles for money making, if you are new to writing online. You are likely to experience a few moments of embarrassment. These moments can even leave you to say aloud : I cannot believe I did that.

First and foremost, know what is expected of you before you apply for or accept a project from a paying client.  There is nothing worse than writing a project only to find out that it needs to be saved as a Microsoft Word document, which you don’t have installed on your computer.  Speaking of Microsoft Word, you should purchase it, as it is considered a great writing tool.

If you do use Microsoft Word to write and save your articles, rely on its spell check and grammar check programs.  On that same note, do not rely on them too heavily.  They are nice to use, but they aren’t always accurate, especially the grammar checker. When in doubt, go with what you know or what sounds best.

In keeping with Microsoft Word, be cautious of accidental clicks.  Do not accidentally add misspelled words to the program.  If you do so, they will not be recognized as errors anymore.  For that reason, always take your time when correcting errors that you are alerted to.  It can be embarrassing to submit articles that have a large number of spelling errors.

It is also important to be cautious of Word’s auto correct features.  It is a nice feature to utilize, but the auto corrected word may not be what you needed.  That is why proofreading is very important, even with all of the helpful tools that you are provided with.  Although an error or two is not uncommon on occasion, proofreading can help to improve the quality of your articles.

If you are outsourcing your work to another writer, due to an illness, check that work for yourself.  Proofread to make sure that there are no spelling or grammar errors.  Next, make sure the content is unique.  There is nothing worse and more career damaging than submitting articles that were copied from the internet.  Never trust another individual’s word that they wrote quality or unique articles, verify for yourself.  After all, your name is the one that will be attached to the work.

Another easy way to avoid embarrassment is to only accept projects on topics that you know about or ones that you don’t mind researching.  Do not claim to be an expert on a subject that you know little to nothing about.  Chances are, you will only be embarrassed when it comes to time for your work to be reviewed.  You may find the best luck writing articles on topics that you already know about.  At the very least, make sure you have the proper amount of time to devote to researching unfamiliar subjects before accepting or applying for a project.

Remember that even the professional article writers are not perfect. Therefore, we all have that moment of thought from time to time. Try to follow the above mentioned steps in order not to fall into uncomfortable, awkward or potentially career ending moment of embarrassment.

ARTICLE NICHES : PROS AND CONS OF CHOOSING

If you really want to learn how to make money writing Articles, turn to the internet to familiarize yourself with amazing money making opportunity.  If you do so, you will surely find a large number of tips which include choose a Niche. Choosing an Article writing Niche has its pros and cons which you must believe when working online.

When you choose an article writing niche to focus on, you are essentially focusing on a limited number of points.  For example, if you opt for a parenting niche, the articles that you write will focus on parenting.  Articles produced could include tips for parenting teenagers, preparing children for kindergarten, and so forth.  What is nice about creating a niche or specializing in a specific topic is that you get to choose that topic yourself.  Most writers will choose topics they are passionate about.

On that same note, you should also examine niches that are popular and in demand.  You may find that these vary depending on the time of year.  For example, spring and summer are both nice for wedding articles, whereas November is about the time people start reading Christmas themed articles online.

What is nice about sticking to a limited number of niches or topics is that overtime you can charge more for writing these articles.  Why?  Because the more articles you write and the more research you do on the subject, the more of an expert you become.  If you are writing for others, as opposed to writing for yourself, you can increase your rates.

Although there are a number of pros to choosing an article writing niche, there are also a number of cons to doing so as well.  If you write articles for money for someone else, a client of yours, they may require that you give them exclusive rights.  This means that you cannot use the same articles again.  This may come back to hurt you if you later want to start your own website or blog on the same subject.  Yes, you can write new articles, but you may find it difficult to write a truly unique article when you have already written a hundred plus articles on the same subject.

Focusing on one article writing subject or niche may also limit you if you are interested in writing for others for pay.  Not everyone is looking for articles on what you want to write about.  That is why it is usually recommended that you pick at least two or three different subjects to focus on.  To make writing articles easier, you may want to pick a subject that is in demand and one that interests you personally.

Staying with limiting yourself, you not only limit yourself in the number of projects you can apply to or accept, but you also limit your money making potential.  If you are looking to write articles as a way to generate extra income, this may be acceptable.  If you are looking to write articles as a way to make a living, this may cause you some difficulties.

What is your decision?  Will you choose an article writing niche in which to specialize on?  Honestly, your decision matter here. But keep the above mentioned pros and cons in mind when making this decision.

Looking for a way to make money writing Articles online?  If yes, your specialization will be in web content writing.  However, web content writing has increased in popularity, over the past couple of years, as a way to make money writing Articles from home. As a result of this, you are likely to face more Competition on the field of writing. So, what will you do to make impact online. You really need to make yourself and your Articles stand apart from the Competition.

Article writers generate income by way of articles by taking two different approaches.  These ways include writing articles for personal use or writing articles for a paying client.

If you are writing articles for your own personal use, you will likely display these articles on either a website or a blog.  If your website has pet care theme, you will find that it is one of hundreds online.  So, how do you make sure that your website is viewed the most?  The easiest approach to take is to produce quality content.  Write your articles with great interest and passion.  Be sure to proofread and proofread again.

Another way that you can make money writing articles for yourself is by posting your articles on already established content filled websites.  Some websites pay you for your work.  This payment can come in the form of a page view bonus, upfront payment, or a combination of the two.  To make sure that your articles receive more views and more money than others, write articles on popular topics or those currently in demand.

You can and should make use of keywords.  Online, there are keyword research tools that can tell you exactly what internet users are searching for.  For example, if you want to write articles on selling on eBay, you will see that many internet users ask search engines how they can find things to sell.  Incorporate the phrase “things to sell on eBay,” into your article and the search engines will automatically find your article.  This is nice, as it requires little or no marketing on your part, although marketing is recommended to make the most money.

If you want to write articles for upfront payment for someone else, you need to target website owners.  They are always on the lookout for fresh and unique content for their websites.  Since many individuals are now trying to make money writing online, you may face some competition.  To make yourself stand apart from the competition, create a great pitch.  Summarize why you should be hired and why you are the perfect fit for the project in question.

When looking to acquire paid writing projects and clients online, a simple resume will not do.  Just because you say you are a good article writer, it doesn’t mean that you are.  For that reason, compile a list of sample articles you have written and have published online.  If you are just getting started, make sure that you have samples. As previously stated, you can use articles to make money with your own content filled website or blog through the use of advertisements.  Not only that, but they can be provided as samples too.

For sure, you are going to face a lot of competition writing articles for pay online, then set realistic goals.  Note that you are not going to be hired for every article writing project you apply for and also not every article you post on a revenue sharing website will generate loads of income.

Then, it is great to set a goal and make sure you’re realistic and within what you can reach.
