Computer Work From Home Businesses

Posted on: October 6, 2009

If you want to use your computer to work from home their are many businesses out there that allow you to do so.  The problem is which business opportunity is best for you and how can you avoid the scams ?

If you start to look through the working from home jobs available you will indeed be spoilt for choice.  They all tend to be pretty much the same thing ie MLM or Pyramid schemes.  You join a scheme and pay a fee and then you try to get others to join and pay the same fee making you a commission and also the person who recruited you gets a commission too.

These are not scams at all as they are completely legitimate work from home jobs.  The companies offer a product for that fee.  It just so happens that most of the people who join these work from home business opportunities are not interested in the product but only the opportunity to make money.

Of course with such online jobs you only get paid for your results.  If you spend 100 hours marketing and no one signs up you won’t get paid anything.  Whereas the guy who only spends 1 hour marketing and happens to be lucky enough to get a signup will make a commission.

Not too many people like the idea of working for nothing but when it comes to computer work from home businesses you must be willing to risk your time and try out a few business opportunities before you stumble upon one that works for you.

I tried a lot of these online opportunities and found them all to pretty much be the same.  Someone recruited me, I recruited a few others but then those ones that I recruited were unable to replicate the process and they dropped out after 1 or 2 months.  So in the end I dropped out too as it didn’t seem like a very stable business opportunity.

Off all the opporunities I tried only Work for $3 has actually made me money.  Not a lot mind you, but I tried about 10 different online schemes and this was the easiest and most profitable.

The most interesting experiment was with Teamwork Revolution Power System TWRPS.  It was a 2×8 matrix which gave promising potential for spillover.  In the beginning it was exploding like crazy.  However when it started it was free to join.  Reality hit when paytime came and less than 10% of the early registrants actually paid and stuck with the program.  Since then people have been dropping out quicker than they have been signing out so in the end it was yet another let down.

Work for $3 however was a simple one time payment of $3 and it doesn’t have anyone dropping out as you never need to pay again and therefore no need to drop out.

So I will just stick with the simple $3 program and continue to promote it as a hobby and who knows, 6 months or a year from now I could be making $1000s per month from it.
