4 ESL Jobs Online From Home That Pay- No Degree Required-Part 1

I recently did a post on 5 Great Work At Home Jobs-Not Just For Moms. I had a reader request a list of ESL jobs online. Since I am all about finding you legitimate jobs that you can do from home, I am fulfilling that request.

I researched ESL (English second language) jobs online from home. These are teachers tutoring English to children in other countries. Some may offer tutoring for other languages as well.

During my research I noticed there were some that required a degree as well as so many years of teaching or substitute teaching experience.

This will be part 1 of a 2 part post. For this post I will do ESL jobs online from home that do not require a degree or a certain amount of years experience. Part 2 will be the jobs that do require a degree and most likely some experience.

First Up Is SameSpeak

SameSpeak (samespeak is actually how the logo is written) tutors English to students. You must speak natural (primary language) English, and be at least 16 years or older. I wish I could have had a job like this at 16.

I was not able to find what teachers have said about their time at SameSpeak. Their blog page contained no blogs.

Samespeak, is conversational coaching English job as you do not need to meet any educational guidelines and there is no experience necessary.

You will need to register and be verified to be a coach. The actual website states that they have a surplus of coaches at the moment. When you register, they will notify you when verification resumes.

To me this sounds like it may be that you are able to register, but not be verified until they have matched students with other coaches that are waiting. You can still register and try one of the other jobs that I have listed. Who knows, maybe you can juggle 2 different teaching companies and make really good money.

I decided to post this because, the pay is $10 per 30 minute lesson. It isn’t as high  or as low as some other sites, but you don’t need a degree or experience. And $10 for 30 minutes is a good rate to me. Some of the other site are $10 an hour.

There wasn’t as much information, like most of the other listings have. Below you can click on the picture and take a look to see if you might be interested. I didn’t see anything saying you had to know a specific language, other than English.

SameSpeak
Coaching Material: made available to you once you have registered.

  • Instructions appear in each lesson
  • an instruction page is provided on the site
  • an audio of a sample lesson is available
  • contact admin@samespeak.com if you have any issues

Items you will need:

  • Computer
  • Headset with microphone
  • HIGH SPEED internet (dial up and satellite will not work)
  • Skype account: you will need to use the free test calling service
  • PayPal account: if you are under 18, you will need a parent or guardian to sign up for Paypal account for you

Your students will be in a school/educational environment. They will learn by hearing you (the conversational coach) live presenting the lesson.

If hired, you will get paid every Friday. You need to have at least $100.00 in your account. If you have less than that you will need to make a special request to release the payment, which takes 3 to 5 business days to show up in your account.

Next Stop Is Cambly

Cambly is set up differently. Now mind you, these companies all set out to find learners (those wishing to learn to speak English) an English tutor.

Cambly offers its learners 24/7 access to speakers (tutors) through video chat. Cambly’s students speak over 30 different languages. Their students are from 130 countries.

When I went to their job search, I clicked on the first one which the location was Japan. Not thinking anything about it, I just clicked on it. I got a little nervous when I saw that it wasn’t written in English.

But luckily there was a text translator that popped up. Thank goodness, or I would have just had to find another ESL company to research.

After it was translated, I backed out of the site because it was not a tutoring job. I typed in my search bar Cambly tutor jobs.

Finding a good amount of information was a challenge. I was looking to see what tutors had to say so I checked on Indeed, although I am not to impressed with the service of indeed, I did screenshot a review of a Cambly employee,

Cambly employee review, review of cambly by employee

Employee review on Cambly

Cambly pays $0.17 a minute ($10.20 an hour). You will be paid via PayPal every Monday. It isn’t much more than samespeak. Cambly tracks your time that is spent with your student. It is said they PAY on time and also have bonuses.

Teaching here is more like online chat. If you are a caring and genuine people person and make a good impression on your student then chances are they will want to keep talking with you. This leads to you getting more pay. It will also lead to better reviews for you which will lead to more students requesting you as there tutor.

Cambly states you can work whenever you want. When you are ready to work just log in and you will be receiving calls with in minutes.

You will chat with people all over the world. How cool is that? You will be able to learn from your students as well. No experience is needed with this company either.

I couldn’t get any further. When I clicked get started to finish my research, I was prompted to sign up or login with my Facebook.

Once you are logged in, it will bring up a screen that test your internet speed. I knew it was over for me. The area I live we can only get satellite internet. Video chatting or computer to computer calling will not work with satellite.Internet speed test

If you don’t have HIGH SPEED internet then I wouldn’t waste my time applying for any of these jobs. They rely on video chatting. Any time you will be using some type of video, you have to have packet loss to do it.

If you have high speed internet and would like to check out Cambly, just click on the picture below.

Cambly

Our Next Stop Is Tutlo

Tutlo (pronounced toot low) only expects you to know English. No need to know any other language. You do not need a degree OR any experience.

Once you fill out the application, you only have to wait 2 business days to know whether you were accepted or not. That is unless it is a holiday of course.

For this one you have to be at least 18 years of age or older. You just need to have the passion for teaching others English and a good conversationalist.

Tutlo employee video, employee's description as a tutor working at Tutlo

Details of Tutlo by employee

You of course need reliable high speed internet and a computer OR any device with a web cam. Yes you heard that right.

The platform they have is designed easy enough for beginners to be able to teach. Not sure how to conduct a class, don’t worry they have material to help you with topics for any level as well as conducting a lesson.

The pay is $11.00 for 60 minutes. You will get paid weekly and a PayPal account is their only payment method. The pay isn’t as good, but for those of you who really have an interest in teaching ESL online from home with no degree.

There is a perfect opportunity to build up your experience so that you can apply for one of the better paying jobs down the road.

You can set your own schedule. You shouldn’t have to worry about them having more teachers than students. They will have plenty of students if they are only paying $11.00 for an hour. They are probably not charging the students as much as other programs like this.

To apply for Tutlo just click on the picture below. You will be required to record a video introducing yourself. If you have no experience I would suggest you use this to convince them of your capability to perform this job.

Tutlo application

Now Arriving At PalFish

By clicking on PalFish above, you will need to enter your phone number to proceed. This one wasn’t as easy to get information on as the others.

This one is based off of a mobile app that you download from Google play store. I am hoping to be able to give you enough information without having to apply personally. I don’t work for these places, I just try to find you a good job.

using app for palfish, tutor using Palfish app

Palfish employee explains working for Palfish using the app

They are different as you can set your own price to get paid. Mind you now, that doesn’t mean you can start out charging $20.00 (an hour) per lesson.

Again, you don’t have a degree or experience, so you definitely want to start your price low until you get good reviews rolling in.

Teachers typically charge $10.00 to $18.00 dollars per hour. Some are as high as $20.00 to $30.00 per hour. They either have degrees, certificates and or experience. The good news is that the minimum is $10.00 per hour.

PalFish will hire native and non-native tutors. It is said there are many ways to earn money with them. One is teaching languages other than just English.

You can also earn money by charging a fee when a student ask you a question and you answer it. If you don’t answer the question you do not get paid. You are also allowed to accept donations. Hmm. I am assuming this is due to performing free lessons in order to get followers to be trusted or seen as a quality teacher.

I am not sure about PalFish “hiring” you as it is suggested that once you get the app, download it and set everything up, you should do free classes until you have enough followers and the confidence in being able to provide lessons the students or parents will want to pay for. Hence, the reason you want to start out with a low price.

I wasn’t able to get as much information as I had wanted. Hopefully I did get enough for you to decide if it was worth you checking on.

Here is the link to for google where you need to download the app. If It is not compatible, they do now have an application for a computer or laptop as well.

I am including another link that is from a teacher who wrote a review about PalFish. I was not able to message him nor leave a comment to find a legitimate website, and to ask him questions in regard to this company.

We Have Come To The End For Now

This was a little tougher than I had anticipated. I cam across quite a few that were not hiring, or you needed a degree as well as experience in. I will be providing a post with the ESL sites that you need a degree for in my next post.

ESL tutoring seems to be very popular. I cam across a couple that provide multiple languages for anyone to learn. I even cam across a couple that helped business with employees who spoke different language than the employer.

If you didn’t find anything of interest, please keep checking back. I am dedicated to helping you in your search for that work from home job opportunity.

As with any other jobs online, ESL jobs online from home aren’t for everyone. It isn’t for me. But I have a job I love, and I work for myself and for you. I love my job.

If you would like to try your hand at having your own business that you can try absolutely free, then I will be glad to help you with that as well.

You will be provided the tools and training needed to get your business rolling. The best part is, you can start your own at home business opportunity based off of something you love doing.

No matter if it is body building or farming. You can start a business based on that. You can just write short stories or freelance writing. The possibilities are endless.

I feel like I owe you a free try at something I believe in. Someone offered it to me and since then I have been building this site to help others find a job or help them build their own business ever since.

Start Where I Did FREE
If you have worked for any of the places in this post I would love to hear about your experience. If you know anything I may have wrong or that I may have missed with the jobs posted here, please do let me know in a comment below.

If you have any questions, suggestions or comments I would love to hear them and I would love to reply.

Thank you,

5 Great Work At Home Jobs-Not Just For Moms

Work at home jobs

Hello and welcome. I have been doing some research which has led me to write this post. Were you looking for work at home jobs that aren’t “just for moms”? I will uncover 5 great work at home jobs that aren’t just for moms.

I bet you have been to other sites that only pay attention to us moms, and/or they want you to pay a fee for their service.

I have also seen those sites that have 10 great work at home jobs for moms, but have a clause stating that the jobs listed are expired. They want you to click on a link for the new list? That is because they will charge you to use their service. I won’t mention names as that is not place.

I am not like most. I will do the research for you and GIVE it to you the results right now. The jobs will be for anyone, and I won’t charge you a dime for my service.

The legit work from home jobs I am about to show you are what I have found by researching them. I have not nor will I be working for them, nor does this mean I am referring you to them.

I do not earn any type of commission from them for including them in my post. I will however include you a link to an awesome platform I am a member of, but it will be at the end. If you DO SIGN up I will receive a commission IF you were to go premium.

Now that all of that is out of the way, let us get to what brought you here in the first place.

English As A Second Language

VIPKID hires teachers that like teaching ESL (English as a second language) online. You will teach students in China, ages 4-12 how to speak English. Don’t speak Mandarin Chinese? That is fine. You don’t have to.

The classes are online and are done through a VIPKID portal. This portal is like our Skype or Facetime. Keep in mind of the time difference.

You do need a bachelor’s degree or higher and teaching experience is highly recommended. BUT, if you can pass the inline interview and the mock lesson, you might get hired with teacher aid experience or possibly no experience in the classroom.

Your professional background will be discussed with an executive online and there will be lesson slides in a 10-minute demo you will need to participate in.

This company needs to see how you teach using their curriculum. During this time you need to be sure to use appropriate classroom techniques and ESL.

You will then receive training material to review. You will need to review this as you will prepare a full lesson for a mock lesson with a mentor.

For the mock lesson, you want to be sure to talk slowly and clearly. You need to get the timing right. Do not end it to soon or to late. Avoid extra talk.

The pay seems pretty good since most lessons are 25 minutes long and it is 1 student at a time. I kind of wish I had a degree. This sounds pretty interesting.

The pay is between $7 to $9 per class. If you teach a minimum of 45 classes each month and aren’t late you can also get an extra $2.00 per class. That equals out to $18 to $20 an hour having 2 classes an hour. Heck yeah.

Here is the link if you would like to check it out for yourself. Teachers can be male or female and either one can apply. For VIPKID click here.

 

Like TO Chat-This Is For You

The chat shop is looking for people who love interacting with people. Do you go above and beyond to help others? Are you interested in learning about different types of services/products?

The chat shop provides live chat to its business customers. Don’t worry about not knowing how you will do this since you don’t know what type of product or service you will be helping customers with.

You will be provided training, knowledge and tools to be able to provide customer support on business that you might not have come across before. Talk about an interesting job. At least it sounds like it to me.

The skills you will need are as follows:

  • Native -level English with outstanding sentence structure, spelling and grammar
  • High levels of organization and attention to detail
  • Strong ability to multi-task and stay focused in high pressure situations
  • meticulous learner and inquisitive mind
  • Upbeat and positive personality
  • Typing speed of 80+ WPM error free ( test your typing speed here )
  • Available to work 35 to 40 hours per week

The above list on skills are per the website itself.

This is one that isn’t for someone with young children or vostrice 4 legged family members. You need to have a distraction free place to work and reliable internet of course.

I didn’t find anything in regard to the pay, but if they accept your application, their recruitment team will contact you to set up you live chat interview, assessment test, and a phone interview. Be sure to have your references available. You will need them.

To check out the chat shop. While I was checking the site out a popup window came up asking if I wanted to chat. I of course clicked away from the page. I decided to go back and talk to someone and I am including the conversation below.

Chat with the chat shop

The chat shop

Chat with James at the Chat Shop

Needless to say, I didn’t find out anything more than what I discovered from researching the site. You can check out blogs from some of the current employees on the site as well. Let’s see what else I found that isn’t just for us moms.

Amazon Is Hiring

That’s right! Amazon is hiring those who wish to work from home. Work from home with Amazon. They currently have 228 full time listings.

I have never heard of this. It seems that due to so many of us searching to work from home, more companies are coming up with ways to make this happen.

Amazon jobs hiring for virtual locations have quite a few openings. Of course I can’t list them all. However, you are more than welcome to check that link and do some investigating on your own.

BDM – U.S. State and Local Health and Human Services is the one I chose to write about. Are you able to come up with excellent sales strategies?

Would you like to help Amazon establish its cloud platform with the State Health And Human Services? Then this could be for you.

You will need some background with the health and human service. Either working directly with or in a state, local, or federal HHS organizations on HHS technology initiatives. (Exact wording from website).

Basic Qualifications as per website include:

  • 8-10 years professional experience
  • Minimum 3 years in the technology industry
  • Experience working with senior HHS officials
  • Experience in business development or sales and driving revenue

I did not come across the pay for employment with Amazon. If you are wanting a work at home opportunity I would definitely check their site out as previously stated. They have the largest amount of listings that I have come across.

The site was updated four days ago. It is highly unlikely that you will find one no longer available like you would if you were using (not naming names) site to find a job.

 

U Haul- No Moving Or Driving Required

This is just more proof of how companies are turning to those who are looking for those work from home opportunities. I am shocked at how many business are offering this.

Inbound sales and reservations agent is what I am going with on this one. U Haul doesn’t have as many as Amazon did, but there are a few.

You would be taking incoming calls (I know. I tried to stay away from the ones requiring you to be on the phone) and answering questions about products or rentals as well as secure and schedule reservations.

  • Great opportunity for students, teachers, second job
  • Work from home – No commute
  • Take incoming calls only – No outbound calls
  • Three weeks of instructor-led paid training/education
  • Base plus bonus – Potential to earn $14-$18 per hour (average base plus bonus)* The pay isn’t that bad.
  • Moonlighter benefits include: Medical Reimbursement Indemnity Plan, Rx Savings Plus Discount Plan, Dental Plan, Vision Plan, Retirement Savings 401(k) Plan

To check out U Haul work from home, click here. When you get to the site you will click on “view job listings” as pointed out in the picture below.

When you get on the next page you will type “work from home” in the search bar. I am providing a picture as well.

How To Start A Work At Home Business-Are You Interested?

Start your at home business

Hello and welcome to my site. How to start a work at home business? You must be interested in this since you are here right?

Starting a work at home business isn’t very hard. You just need to do some research. What is it you want to do -what service do you wish to provide.

Are you wanting to work for someone else, or are you wanting to be your own boss? Have your own at home business? This is an important question you need to have the answer to before even starting your search for your business.

For this post, we are going to be looking at a business that will be yours. An online business you will do from home, or actually from anywhere.

Not All business will work by doing them at home. The next steps will help you determine what you want as your business and if it will work doing it from home.

Who Are You? What Are You About?

Who are you? What are you about. This will help you figure out which type of business you will want to start. Are you a social butterfly, or a little on the shy side? Are you comfortable on the phone. Do you love to write?

Starting a work at home business means you can do a variety of different jobs. You can make your own soap and sell it, sell Avon, make and sell candles, dog sit or walk dogs.

Sewing, knitting, crocheting can also be turned into a business. You love to do it, so why not earn money while doing it right?

Are you good with numbers, or English, maybe you speak multiple languages? You want to list anything that you are interested in. Can you turn it into a business?

Start with your passions. How can you inc operate that into a business. Maybe even something you are very talented at. Can that be your business?

Who, what, where, when and why. Answering these questions will help you to answer almost any situation you may be facing. Just not necessarily, in that order.

Make sure you do research on the type of job you are thinking of offering. Are there others around providing the same services, what is being said about their service, how did they get started? Research every detail that would pertain to your business.

Who What Where When And Why

Can I Do This From Home?

We can narrow down your list down by going through and crossing off those that will not work by doing them from home.

Will this business cause a lot of traffic to come in an out of your home? Living in a residential area might cause some concern for your neighbors if they are seeing different people go in and out of your home.

I would cross anything you have that would involve clients coming to your home off the list. I don’t mean one or two clients, but larger number of clients coming and going wouldn’t certainly raise neighbors curiosity.

If you have any type of business manager position on your list, I would cross that off as well, except a virtual manager position. Managers are normally wanted to be on site, unless it is a virtual manager.

A business that requires you to be on the phone constantly, do you have a baby or a very loud four legged family member? These are the things you want to consider.

Will I Profit From This?

We are going to look at this from a MONEY stand point. This is a process many at home business skip, and then they regret it, because they end in failure.

If selling a product-how much will others pay for this product? How long does it take to make this product and will you be able to make a large quantity if it is a hit?

If you are choosing a business that you will be working from home but will depend on a company who will be paying you for your service, what will they pay you? Will it depend on your performance or is it a straight hourly pay or salary?

Checking out the competition will be beneficial as well. If you have 5 other business promoting the same product, you might have to have a BETTER brand of product or better advertising skills.

No matter what type of business you will have, you want to make sure it will be a profitable one. You may have to try something else if you don’t think it will be.

If you are thinking about taking out a loan to get this business started, you will definitely want to make a business plan. You don’t want to take out a loan for a business that is doomed to fail.

Business Success Chart

Only 50% of new businesses make it through their first 5 years. Only 1/3 make it to their 10 year anniversary. Beyond that, the chances stay the same. The longer a business last, the better the chances of it continuing to last are (kind of the same as marriage).

Set Up Your Plan Of Action

How are you going to make this happen? What do you need to do to make this happen? This will depend on what type of business you will be setting up.

You will want to keep a check list of everything you will need. While researching, write down what other businesses like yours need. If it is something you don’t already have, add it to your list.

Knowing what you will need is very important. Do you have the tools for the trade ex.seamstress, do you have all the different needles, thread and material you might need.

Will you need a tax code, a business license. Maybe you need to check with your locality about permits. Register your trade name. These are all if necessary.

Your plan of action will be based on the type of business you are creating. No matter the type, I am sure you will need some type of computer or laptop and a phone and a website. You can build a website in 30 by clicking here. Don’t worry no credit/debit card or billing info needed.
If you are planning on using your cell phone for everything, you will want to make sure it can support all the apps needed to maintain your business needs.

Plan Of Action

Execution-Put Your Plan Into Action

Hopefully by now you know everything you will need to get this business to be more than a vision in your head. Let’s get to making it a reality now.

When you made the calls to find out if you needed a business license, tax I D and so forth, if you weren’t able to take care of everything then, now is the time to do so. Maybe you had to come up with a little money. But now you are ready.

Be sure you have gone over the check list you made earlier of everything you need, and be sure you have it all. Check it and check again in case you have missed or forgotten something.

Once you have it all set up, I would suggest running over some Worse Case Scenarios,so that you are somewhat prepared for the unexpected. Just in case. This way you are a little more prepared. Once again, this will depend on your type of business.

Take another walk through, is there anything you can think of that might complicate your startup? When doing the research, did anything pop up that others may have had issues with?

Open For Business

Time To Open The Doors

At this point you know what type of business you are starting, what service you will provide and how you are going to do it.

You have done your research on what you will need, material, equipment, licenses, tax ID or any other certifications needed (if necessary).

Have you got your date to open? Are you ready to go live? If you are working from home for someone else, do you have your start date.

You should be ready and excited to open up your business now. How does it feel knowing that you have done what was needed and made it to this day?

You should have your website up and letting customers know how and where to find you and exactly what service you will provide them as well as the cost.

What? You didn’t set up a website? How are you getting the word out? How are customers going to find you or your product?

It’s Ok, We’ve Got This.

Since you need a website, I can take you to where you can set one up. Or even better, if you made it through all these steps and weren’t able to come up with a business idea that you thought would work, I have you covered as well.

Yes, that’s right. I am going to give you free access to a place where you can set up your website. Don’t think you have the skills to do that? Oh I think you do.

Not only will you be taught how to set up a website, but you will also learn how to make this website a profitable one (for those who came to the end with no idea for a business).

You will have free access to the tools to build your website, as well as support and even better, you will have 24/7 support and a community that thrives on helping others succeed.

All you need to do is take action by clicking below. No billing information will be required. Before I give you this awesome deal, I want you to promise me you will come back and tell me how much you loved (or hated, which I don’t see that happening) it.

Click here to build your website or to start your business
What are you waiting for? I will be there waiting for you and I will help you when/if needed.
If you have any questions comments or suggestions, please leave them below. I love when you respond and I would be glad to reply .

Thank you,

Best Of Luck In All You Do

Create A Successful Online Business Starting Now-Why Wait

If you are anything like me you have often wanted to create a successful online business, but you would tell your self, ah maybe tomorrow or nah, it will cost too much. Maybe the thought of not knowing how you would create it, held you back.

For whatever the reason was, why don’t you create a successful online business starting now? Why wait? It really isn’t that hard. Even if you have no clue how to do it. if you have the right training and tools provided, all you have to do is put forth the effort.

Come on, I’ll show you what is needed to be done. By the time you read to the end, you will be scratching your head wondering why you didn’t do it sooner.

First Step Is So Simple-What Type Of Business Are You Starting?

A successful online business can range from just writing about your travels, hobbies or even DIY projects. Maybe you are a mechanic, you can set up a website and tell someone how to change the carburetor on a 1957 Ford Mustang.

Are you a Gardner? You can set up a website with planting tips for flowers, plants, shrubs or trees. Maybe even about fertilizer for lawns. Which is the best type to use and when you should use it.

Knitting, well yes, you can set one up for that as well. There are plenty of people who knit. It isn’t just for our grandmother or our mother anymore.

Do you have your own product that you would like to sell? Create a website, get to selling it. Possibilities for creating an online business are endless.

There are 3.5 BILLION searches a day performed on google. Yes, a day. Users are searching for everything on the internet. Dictionaries, encyclopedias and reading how to books are almost a thing of the past.

This means that chances are, whatever you want your business to be about, it is being searched for even as you are reading this.

Here is a link about picking a Niche. A niche is what we have been discussing. What type of business you want to start. Check this out in case you are still not sure about it.

Second Step-Easy As Pie

The second step can actually be done in 30 seconds. Brace yourself though because you are not going to believe me, unless you try it yourself.

Have patience, I will give you the opportunity to see for yourself. But in the mean time lets get through this step. I didn’t believe it was that easy either until i actually did it.

You will need a platform where you can create your website, host it and you want it to be secure and safe from hackers. But don’t worry, I can show you where I have my, site (in case you don’t have a platform in mind, or maybe you are tired of paying for everything) and I get everything I need from one platform (and you can get started for free).

If you already have an idea as to where you want to create your site, keep in mind it might not be as easy as the one I am about to show you.

I was able to create mine very easily because I did mine through WordPress which is part of Wealthy Affiliate. Click here to read a review I created about this Affiliate marketing platform.

Now, to show you how I was able to create my website (the one you are on to read this post) in 30 seconds. Are you ready? Let’s go.

Create your website in 30 seconds

Third Step Is To Make Your Site Popular-Get Traffic To Your Site

Getting traffic to your site means you need to have quality content on it for your readers/customers. You need to write the content. Don’t worry, you do not need to be a writer. I’m not. Yet you are reading my content. How am I doing?

Writing isn’t as hard as you might think. You may already know everything you will need to, you just don’t know it yet. Especially if you are very knowledgeable about your topic for your business.

Back to getting traffic to your site. Chances are you probably have at least one social media account, and that is where you want to start. When you write a post for your new site, share it on social media.

Utilize YouTube. If you watch videos on YouTube, you know how popular it is. From what I hear it isn’t that hard to create a video .

You can use Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or any of the social media platforms to get traffic to your website. Getting your website out to whoever you can, will get you traffic.

The traffic you get will also help you to rank on the first page of major search engines, as well as writing quality content. This will also get Google to where it trusts you (your website has to be trusted).

Below I am sharing some lessons that are available at Wealthy Affiliate that have helped hundreds of thousands get their own online business rolling.

The lessons are just a FEW that we have available to us, as well as live video training and 24/7 support (and much more).

Wealthy Affiliate lessons
My reason for sharing it is in case you would like to know where you can go to start your online business and learn what you need to know about getting your business to where you make money from it, and not have to worry about getting scammed or having to pay for every tool needed to build your website.

Fourth Step Saved The Best For Last

Making money is the final step. That’s it. I told you it was easier than you thought, Did you believe me? Do you believe me now?

Starting your online business doesn’t have to be scary, nor does it need to cost you a fortune. As long as you fill your site with quality content, captivating headlines, you will get traffic easier.

Getting traffic to your site will lead to more visitors if they like what they are reading. Making it worth their time to read your content, will in return get them to share your site with others that they think might find it interesting.

If your site is about selling your product or someone else’s product like amazon or eBay, you want them to be a return shopper or tell others about your great product. Always be honest no matter what the product or information you are writing.

This will all lead to your making money. The best part of any business. It will be your business that is paying YOU for what you put into it. If you don’t put your time and effort into it, then you will not make it to this step (making money).

No More Excuses-Get Started Now

I have shown you how easy it can be to start your own online business, so there shouldn’t be anything holding you back. Well maybe not knowing where to start, but I can help you with if you like.

Other than that, you are probably wondering why you did wait, and you are probably anxious to get started. Just in case you aren’t convinced or need to see for yourself, I will give you a chance to try it FREE of charge.

I will give you an opportunity to try it all out and then decide if this is what you are looking for. I am going to give you free access to an out of this world training program and state-of-the-art tools that you will not even have to down load.

If you were to need a hand or would have a question, you will have the ability to get support from a great community that you will not find anywhere else.

So, I will make a deal with you, If you get started with your test drive, in 7 days I will have an awesome surprise for you.

And yes, I believe that once you click the button below and get started, you will decide to stay and will still be there in 7 days. Oh and put your credit/debit card away. You don’t need it.

Work From Home With No Investment-Is This Legit?

Work from home jobs with no investment

Hello and thank you for stopping in. Have a seat and be prepared for a very informational post to help YOU find that work from home job you want and need.

Most of us who are looking for work to do from the comfort of our home, search for work from home with no investment type jobs. Keep in mind, you are probably going to need a computer, internet connection and probably a phone. Nowadays, who doesn’t have those already?

You probably come across data entry or call center jobs. I want to see if there are more interesting jobs that don’t require an investment or start up fee. Are you ready to start this adventure?

These are going to be legitimate work from home jobs. None of that make 10 cents for an hour of taking surveys, or watching a video and getting paid by a point system.

Let The Search Begin

I have started my search and of course the first site I come across is “Get Paid To Take Surveys”. How do they consider this a job or an opportunity?

You make NOTHING by taking these surveys. Especially considering the time you have to invest into taking the surveys and filling them out.

Interesting enough the next site was a PTC (paid to click) site. I didn’t even bother with them and I am not going to waste your time with them either.

Just a quick note to inform you that I have not and am not working for any of these jobs that I will be listing. Nor did I apply for any of them. I am not endorsing them. The information I am providing you was found by researching on google.

The Biggest Prospect Of Them All

While doing my research I came across remote.co website. So I thought what the heck. I will see what they are. It seems they list REMOTE (work from home) jobs.

While searching through the site, I noticed some well-known company’s. So instead of listing another job, I decided to list them.

Remote.co
There are an ample amount of job listings on their site. I did search for reviews and as usual with any remote job site like this, you get good and bad reviews.

Here is where you can check them out for yourself. When you click on the link, you will be able to click on whatever category you are interested in. This will take you to jobs that have openings. Find the one you want and apply.

As long as you go to them in order to find your work from home (remote) job, please mark this page so that you can return to me and let me know how your experience was.

If I find they are a good source, I will leave them on my post, if not, I will remove them and fill the space with a better resource.

Not your run-of-the-mill sales call job, or survey taker. I don’t know about taxes or have a CPA, but it sounded interesting to me. Just because we look for jobs online to do from home, doesn’t mean we aren’t educated or that we don’t have a degree.

My Remote Business

My #1 Job: Is to find legitimate work from home opportunities for ANYONE not able to work outside their home for ANY reason.

Remember how I advised you that I do not nor will I work for the company’s I just did the research on? I had said that I am happy with my work from home job.

I actually have my own business that I started for FREE. Yes for free. I joined a marketing training platform that supplied my with EVERYTHING I needed to get my online business set up and running.

I had never done any type of training like this so of course I was a little skeptical and intimidated. I mean, I didn’t even know what a keyword was.

But this post that you have been reading, I created it as well as the website it is on. I had my hand held while training and completing each task .

I was provided all the tools and support to get it done. I still have the training and support. Video classes/training for every lesson. There are even live classes By a brilliant fellow by the name Jay (magistudios).

Just like remote jobs, there are members of this amazing platform from all over the world. I have never been a part of something so amazing.

Look at the chart below. I want you to see the simple steps that is taken for me to get where I am in less than 4 months. Yes, that’s as long as I have been doing this, and you wouldn’t believe what I have accomplished. Actually I recently did a post that you can check out if you would like.

                                            Build your business in 4 easy steps

Final Thought

No matter what we do in life, or whether we work in our home or outside our home, in order to make money we have to work for it.

We may have a job or a business that we know how to do well, or we had to be trained. None of us came into this world knowing everything we know without being taught. Sure we may have picked up things quicker than others, or not as quick as others (me).

You may be living the easy life, but how did you get there? Did you work for it? Did you put your blood sweat and tears into getting where you are?

As long as you are struggling. Chances are you have at some point had a good job, or maybe not. What I am trying to say, nothing is handed to us.

Even for those of us wanting to be our OWN BOSS. We are who makes our business successful. It starts with you. You get out of it what you put into it.

There is a choice out there for all of us. Don’t be stuck in a dead end job. Keep working (unless you have tons of money), but keep looking for that opportunity you have dreamed of. Never give up on it.

I didn’t and I am loving my business. I get to do what I have always loved doing, helping others. I have pretty much enjoyed my work when I was in the work force, but it didn’t beat where I am today.

As long as you want to try your hand at being where I am, then

Work From Home Job Opportunities-What’s Nexxt?

I know what you are thinking, and no Nexxt is spelled correctly. When searching for work from home job opportunities with Amazon, I was prompted to complete a profile while my results were being generated.

After I chose work from home/business opportunities at the bottom of the drop down, I noticed I was now in a program called Nexxt. Wait, what?

So what is Nexxt? I was searching for work from home with Amazon, as you can see in the picture below. I am still not sure how I ended up with Nexxt.

I must have clicked on an AD instead of an actual site address. But that is OK. I will just do my review on this site now, since I was already on it. Might as well, right? Let’s proceed.

 

Work from home Amazon

Upon my initial search I was prompted to complete my profile for a more targeted search. For my job category (in the picture above) I chose ” work from home/business opportunities” in my area. To find this category, you have to scroll all the way to the bottom.

You can pick from a numerous amount of categories. The reason I chose work from home/business opportunities was to continue to help those that want to work from home, which is what my site is about. Click here to view my about page.

Now remember my review is based on Nexxt, instead of Amazon work from home jobs. It will depend on my review whether I would recommend you using their service or not.

What Is Nexxt?

  • Owner and CEO-Rich Milgram
  • Year Founded-2009-Nexxt was previously know as Beyond which was started in 1998
  • Size-1 to 10 employees ( Per Linked in site)?
  • Price-Let’s break this down by employees searching for a job- Free, Premium $24.99 Per Month
  • Employers searching for employees -Talent Pro $199 per month, Recruiter $299 Per Month, Recruiter Premium $499 per month

Nexxt was previously known as beyond.com. If you would like to check out the reason for the name change, click here. I would suggest you check it out, honestly.

Back to what is Nexxt. It is a recruitment media company made up of a team of 10 members. I had to look at that twice in order to make sure that is what it said. Doesn’t seem like enough people in order to run a business like this. Who am I though. I could be wrong.
Nexxt has nine human members and one four legged member (the owners dog named Twizzler). Their positions range from CEO to morale (the job title for Twizzler)? I am assuming he is a morale booster?

Nexxt is sort of like a job mediator (a go between). From what I can tell they play both sides of the fence. They work with employers and employees.

They basically try to match employers from 130 different countries from around the world, with the right potential employee in different industries. I will show you what I found when I signed up.

Taking The Plunge-Getting Started

Nexxt

Above is a screenshot of information I was asked to provide. The application is self-explanatory really and seemed to be legit. However I am still wondering about how I was connected to them.

You fill in all the drop down fields. What ever information they want, and you can provide, you want to fill it in. This will be more beneficial to you when they try to match you up with a prospective employer.

I am only doing the basic membership as I was only interested to find out how LEGIT their program was. I did notice that since I was not a paying member all I can do is search jobs.

If you want your resume to be shown first to employers who search the employee resume data base, then you can pay $10.00 and your resume will be featured for 60 days. Even though others might have their resume on file, unless they pay $10.00, it will not get seen unless the employer doing the search doesn’t like what he saw on the resumes of those who did pay.

Being a non-paying member looks like a waste of time unless you pay for the resume to be included, because they claim that they will highlight your resume and put it at the TOP of employers search results. Leaving those of us that don’t at the bottom of the list.

This will explain why I haven’t received any notifications, other than “we are sorry, there are no current job openings”. I have also been given lists of jobs that by no means fit my criteria. I am looking to work from home and they are all in the work place

You would think with the amount that employers have to pay, that only the premium members of Nexxt will have any advantage of getting matched with a job.

The Jobs Start Pouring In-But From Where

I am a little confused on the emails I have been getting from next. They do not have any relevancy to my job title (work from home) that I have on my profile.

As you can see from the picture below, this is definitely not what I have in my profile with them. I scribbled out the location just because it shows the area I live in. It is just precautionary measures.

Nexxt Job Results
If I go on my profile I am still getting the ‘Sorry, there are no positions at this time”. So, is this because I am a free member? Or is it that they don’t really have employers who are looking for employees that can work out of their homes?

I am also getting emails from other sites that I definitely did not subscribe to, nor did I even use their site to search for a work from home job. Something fishy is going on here for sure.

OK, here is an update. I have figured out why my jobs aren’t matching what I put in for my job title. Below is a picture that shows two tabs .

Next job searches
As you can see I have underlined some key elements that answer my question about where these jobs were coming from. I guess for those who are OK with not doing a search online for themselves, then this might not be a big deal. But for those that are PAYING nexxt, or that used nexxt thinking they would be getting alerts on a SPECIFIC job title, then this is a big deal.

You can get this information yourself by searching online for the type of job you are looking for, and probably wouldn’t have your email spammed with useless junk.

How Can I Help You

Since I am only getting CRAP emails from this company, and I am getting job related emails from other companies, I find it hard to be able to put in a good word for this company.

I went searching for employee reviews on them so that I might be able to help you in that area.

There were good reviews from clients who it seems used Nexxt in order to find a job. However, most of the reviews were quite short and very similar. Ex. ‘I have been with Nexxt a little over a year, good place to work”.

I seen a few of those. They were all anonymous of course. But there were some that were not so good reviews as well. I would strongly suggest that you do not pay to use this site.

I can not say with 100 % certainty that this site is not legit. What I can say is that if they are being legit about the amount of employers they have that are using their service to find employees, then why are they sending jobs that are all over the internet? Ones that you would find for yourself by doing a search for them.

Don’t Fret-Be An Affiliate

If you want to have your own online business then I have something you might want to check out, that is 100 % legitimate. You will not have to add any type of billing information.

Ready to get out of that job searching, or tired of hearing that alarm clock. Interested in being your own boss? How about not having to commute? I think you will like the offer I have for you.

It is completely newbie proof (yes, even a newbie can do it). No experience necessary. The best part is, that it will be your own business opportunity. Yes, your own business.

You aren’t going to be a millionaire overnight, and you will have to put your time and commitment into it. You would have to do that with your regular 9 to 5 job, wouldn’t you?

So why not do it for your own business. I can show you where you can build your own website and get your business up and running, with training and tools as well as support. Go ahead, check it out. Just click right below.
