If someone tells you he or she has a way to earn money from home without so much as lifting a finger and by only spending a few bucks, RUN. Run away as fast as you can! Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, who earned hundreds of dollars a day or thousands of dollars a month, spent their days just doing simple menial tasks. Don’t believe it!
So… is it still possible to have a decent income online? Yes, it is.
Earning Money Online is NEVER Easy or Simple
There is no simple way to earn a lot of money online. Those who are rolling in the Benjamins today were toiling hard yesterday. I mean it. If earning money online is that easy, everybody would be successful!
But then, why are there only a handful who are earning as much as they say? When someone shows you a wad of cash or shares pictures of them with jet planes in the background, or spending a vacation somewhere in the Mediterranean, don’t part with your hard-earned money so easily!
Many of those saying that you can earn by simply sending snail mails (placing letters in envelopes, etc.), sending e-mails, posting in social media, etc. are scams. The term they use is Multi-Level Marketing or MLM. This business type used to be legitimate in the past. An MLM is a business that offers products and memberships. Members have access to the products and can use them by paying a fee. They can also promote the products and earn from every member that joins.
However, MLMs these days offer useless products just so they can use the term MLM. Sure, they offer products, but these are usually information that you can get online for free. The way for you to earn is by inviting other people to join the business (and have access to useless products, LOL). It is a pyramiding scam wherein the person who invited you gets a portion of the fee you paid. In order for you to earn money, you need to invite other people and make them spend money. If you can’t invite other people, you won’t earn a dime. This type of business is based on unethical practices, which can go downhill fast.
If they say they are earning hundreds a day, thousands a week, why do you think they waste their time inviting people into the business? Out of the goodness of their hearts? No sir. Because that’s how they can earn money. If they are earning as much as they show in their Paypal or Joint Venture earnings, they will not waste their time posting these things and asking you to inbox them or comment “info”. They will be spending their money through REAL advertising venues. But guess what? They can’t even pay for advertising in Facebook because either they don’t have the budget for that or because Facebook has downright rejected their ads for being a scam.
Earn Money from Home with Real Work
I hate scams. I hate scammers even more. I believe that those who are looking for work online genuinely need money as a side hustle or to actually finance their day to day lives as they are really down and out. Or maybe you want to escape your 9-5 job. But although working online has its advantages, it doesn’t mean you no longer have to work. You also need to work! If you want to be financially free in the future, you have to put in the work today.
Is it possible to earn a lot of money online that you’ll eventually be debt free, be financially sustainable and even become a millionaire?
By all means, YES!
The internet has made it a possibility, and equalized the playing field for all of us: those with money and those without; those with degrees and those without. If you are willing to invest on yourself and work hard, then anything is possible.
Now the work detailed in the list below are a combination of full-time jobs, part-time jobs, freelance jobs, affiliate marketing and online business.

Why We Don’t Recommend Survey Sites and Task-Based Sites Here
As you may have noticed, none of these recommended work from home jobs involve answering surveys or doing menial tasks like watching videos/ads. I purposely did not include them because these are not really “jobs” that you can work full-time or part-time on. Although you can earn from them, you cannot depend on them to be a consistent source of income.
If you only want to earn on the side, sure, answering surveys and accepting tasks in “paid to do” sites can work. If you’re lucky, you can earn $25 to $50 per month. Survey sites that say you can earn $200 to $1,000 from them monthly is pulling your leg. You can surely earn that if there are only a few people in the platform (there are millions), if you are always online (you don’t sleep?) and if you qualify for all the surveys (which you don’t). Task-based sites (download app, listen to music, watch video, enter captcha, etc.) is the same. You’ll earn cents for your time.
If you still want to try survey sites, check out the survey sites we recommend.
If you’re serious about work, however, the above list will help you. Check each item out for more details, as I will be adding more information as we go along. If you have questions now, don’t hesitate to post a comment and I will answer with as much information as I can to help you earn money from home.
Some of these work from home jobs can eventually make you financially free!
