Where to Look for Home-Based Work
That Will Pay You at Least $10 an Hour
By Melina Ryter
Finding home-based work that can pay you at least $10 per hour can be done
if you know where to look.
But let's face it, it's hard enough sorting through all the work at home
junk that's out there on the internet without having to also sort out which
ones will legitimately pay you more than minimum wage.
$10 an hour may still not be enough in this day and age to support your entire
household, but it may be a big help if you're just looking for a part-time
job or a way to have some extra money to pay down some debt.
And the difference between an actual J-O-B and a home-based business is that
you will actually get paid for every hour you put in. Sure, a home-based
business may reap you a greater return on investment time-wise in the long
run, but I know that there were times that I couldn't wait for 6 months to
a year for a home-based business to start paying off, I needed money NOW.
The other part of the equation of course, is the part where you would be
working from home, which is a very attractive scenario for many, whether
you are a parent or not.
Working from home eliminates the cost of a commute, as well as the time spent
on a commute and can eliminate other costs as well such as a work wardrobe,
lunches or dinners and may allow you to get more work done in a shorter amount
of time, free from distractions (if you're disciplined!).
So, if you find yourself in that position at this very moment and want to
find legitimate companies that may hire you to work from home, then check
out my list of 5 companies that may help you reach your goal of finding part-time
work from home.
Nexrep has many different work at home opportunities for those who are not
opposed to working in the area of telephonic customer service or sales from
home. Pay is usually by the minute for many of their projects and can work
out to anywhere between $10-$15 per hour.
• Working Solutions
Working Solutions also has a plethora of telephonic work at home positions
available throughout the year. They are one of the more reputable companies
out there and also offer some of the highest wages at between $8-$20+ an
hour depending on the project you are able to approved for.
• AppleCare at Home
If you are not big on doing telephonic work from home, then why not take
a look at working as an AppleCare chat specialist? Most people know how to
work an Apple device these days, and even if you don't how to, training is
paid for and pretty extensive. They'll get you running with everything you
need to know. Pay averages around $11 an hour for chat care specialists.
If you are an expert in a certain area, chances are you can go to About.com,
look at their endless lists of articles that need to be written, and select
one subject to write about. The net value that you will be paid for that
one article. $80. Not bad, right? And if you can manage to write said article
in less than 8 hours, you will get paid a cool $10 per hour for your time.
• Leapforce or Lionbridge
Last but certainly not least, are these companies that will pay you to work
as some form of a search engine evaluator. This job can take many forms,
but you are basically analyzing website data. The pay averages around $15
And that was just the tip of the Iceberg. For more information on where you
