We like to encourage our visitors to ask questions about the various work from home opportunities available, but we also find that there are a number of questions that tend to get repeated over and over.
Below we have a list of Q&A’s that we constantly update to reflect the regular questions that we get asked.
Please take the time to read this page before committing to a work from home opportunity.
Is it really possible to earn an income working from home?
Yes, it really is. However, it’s important that you establish what you expect to earn and how much time you can commit, before you explore all the opportunities available to you. If you’re only interested in earning extra money each month to cover a few bills, then it’s pointless you looking at opportunities that can potentially earn you a much higher income. This will save you a lot of time and effort in the long run.
On the flip side, if you are looking to earn a full time income working from home, then I suggest that you don’t even consider the low income opportunities that we mention on this website and skip right to the high income potential methods. Full details for all levels of earning potential can be found on our work from home recommendations page.
Do I have to pay to work from home?
Not necessarily. There are many work from home opportunities that are completely free to join, and these are usually low income methods that require a minimal amount of time and effort to work. However, you will find that many of the opportunities with greater earning potential now offer a free-to-try option that allows you to test for yourself without any financial commitment. The more trustworthy work from home opportunities are all heading in this direction, and we like it very much!
Do I need computer experience to work from home?
Basic computer knowledge is usually required for most work from home opportunities, but the fact that you’re reading this suggests that you already have those skills! Even the more advanced opportunities only require a basic understanding of how to operate a computer, and usually provide comprehensive training for those who require it.
Will I need to have my own website?
Again, it really does depend on what type of work from home job you are looking for. Most of the low income work from home jobs do not require you to have any technical knowledge or your own website, but for some of the more advanced opportunities a website is required. You will also find that such programs either provide you with your own website, or the necessary tools to build one.
Is it possible to only work part time from home?
Absolutely! The beauty of working from home is that YOU get to pick where, when, and how you work!
Why should I take notice of what you say?
Good question! You have every right to completely ignore our advice if you want to, but the information that we provide on this website is based on our own personal experiences. It is our goal to help you to also become successful in whatever you decide to do, through the information on this website.
How soon can I make money?
Unfortunately that’s impossible to answer. This again comes down to the direction that you decide to head in, and the time that you can devote to your work from home career. Some opportunities pay small amounts fairly quickly, while others focus on higher earnings over a period of time.
Can I work from home no matter where I am in the world?
The majority of work from home opportunities are mainly available in…North America, Canada, United Kingdom, Europe, Australia,and New Zealand. However, some high income opportunities like Internet marketing can be operated from anywhere in the World…as long as you have a computer and Internet connection.
I think I’ve been scammed, what should I do next?
The first thing that I suggest you do is report it to us on this page and we will pay any necessary costs (to try the program/service), and report it on our website – if we can prove that it is a scam. The growth of this website is dependant on our visitors telling us when they have been ripped off (because we don’t have the resources to find EVERY scam), and in doing so we can pre-warn others who visit our website.
Secondly, take a look at our how to avoid work from home scams page, and file your complaint with any of the governing bodies on that page. Together we can rid the Internet of filth!
So…how do you make money working from home?
We use a number of methods to earn our income, but primarily we are Internet marketers. The main portion of our income comes from ‘niche’ websites that focus on helping people overcome specific problems. We all like to write (and like to help!), and we find it’s the best and easiest way to make the most of our otherwise limited skills!
Do you have a training program that will teach me how to earn some extra cash from home?
Yes we do! You can find our course on working from home on the following page: http://www.workfromhomewatchdog.com/course/
