4 Great Work-At-Home Gigs
With the rise of the internet, it's easier now than it ever has been to get a job working from home. For many people who stay at home and work for other companies, call centers are the easiest and most familiar jobs to get. Unfortunately, however, these call-center-type jobs are still very restrictive when it comes to time and money freedom. You may have to buy your own headset to start out with and you generally must be available and undistracted for certain hours of the day. That means if you have kids at home, it's going to be difficult to work and give them your attention. Here's a list of 4 work-from-home jobs that are better than call centers.
Multi-level marketing (MLM) companies have been around for decades and provide their independent contractors with millions of dollars annually. If you haven't heard of MLM companies before, the concept is simple. Each company has different products or services they promote. This is seen a lot in the health and fitness industry with companies like Le-Vel Thrive, which specializes in weight loss products. These products are high-quality, which is why people love them. You can build a business yourself by promoting these products and by helping other people build their own business. Not only do you get paid for sales that you make, but you also get paid for sales from anyone who has signed up under you. This can snowball into a lot of money over time.
This day and age, many people are making money online by turning their passion into a full-time income. Blogs are everywhere online and cover a variety of topics from food to lifestyle and beyond. Another benefit of starting a blog is that it doesn't require a lot of financial investment. With that being said, expect this to take 4-6 months of consistent work, and a good knowledge of SEO practices, to start generating an income. Once you start generating traffic to your website, you can get paid to put ads on your website by companies like Google or Mediavine.
This is very similar to starting a blog, but it happens to be on video! The concept is the same, however. There are many YouTube channels where people speak on a variety of topics. The most successful YouTube channels have a lot of value because they teach people things. This can be anything from teaching people how to cook to teaching people how to make money online. There are even people who make full-time incomes by playing video games online! If you're thinking that you don't want to show your face on camera, that's ok! There are many people that never show their faces and still make money. You can have ads placed on your channel, just like you would in a blog, and you make money from people viewing those ads. The more subscribers you have, the more money you can make.
Affiliate marketing is like multi-level marketing because you get paid to promote other people's products. You do not make commissions from people who sign up underneath you, however. You can think of it as single-level marketing. The support here depends on the affiliate program that you're looking at. MLMs tend to be community-based with a plethora of support. Affiliate marketing is really a solo-business where you learn about SEO, driving traffic to your offer, and how to convert sales on your own or through paid courses. People who are successful in affiliate marketing can make a lot of money, but it will take some time and some effort to get there.
This day and age, it's easier than ever to build a business working from home. For those who do not function well in the traditional 9-5 setting, there really is no shortage of options if you are willing to work hard and be patient. With a bit of digging, you should be able to find something that suits you. With enough hard work and dedication, you can say goodbye to your 9-5!
