Before I decided to make blogging my full time career and business, I tried a number of things to make money from home. I started with online surveys, did data entry work, research projects and worked as a customer service rep for Transcom, back then known as Cloud 10. I guess you can say I was the Jackie of all trades because I did whatever I could do to keep money coming in.
If you don’t have a steady work-from-home job or client list, you have hustle to make money. And that means taking advantage of all the opportunities there are to make money from home. And believe me, there are plenty of online jobs out there. The more resources you have the more chances you have to make money to add to the bottom line. And who doesn’t want that, right?
And as bloggers, we all know making money takes time. Before we get to the point of making a steady income, there will be months when the money is great and months when we don’t see one dime, which seems to be the case for me this month.
The problem with that is, even if there are months when no money is made, we still have to pay for expenses.
More Opportunities to Make Money from Home
When you work from home it’s important you have a back-up plan for making money on the months when no income is coming in.
A while back, I mentioned doing data entry work for Virtual Bee as a way to make money from home doing clerical freelance work.
Well, recently Virtual Bee has joined Smart Crowd Lionbridge giving you even more ways to make money from home! If you’re already a member of the Virtual Bee team, you can use your same login credentials and pick up right where you left off.
So let me tell you about Smart Crowd and the three ways you can earn money while your blog or homebased business takes off or until you find the perfect work-from-home job.
The Skinny About The Smart Crowd
The Smart Crowd gives you the opportunity to make money from home by completing tasks like data entry, data research and if you speak more than one language, they have a number of translation projects in multiple languages you can also complete.
Each task requires different skills so when you join Smart Crowd Lionbridge you’ll be given evaluations to measure your skillset and quality you for different tasks.
When you sign up, you’ll be asked a series of questions to get information about your demographics, education, areas of expertise and language skills in order to match you with the appropriate task.
After you complete the questionnaire, you will see on or more placement evaluations. You have to complete at least one placement evaluation before you’re considered for work but you’re welcome to complete as many as you’d like. The higher your score, the greater your chances are at being offered tasks to complete.
Once you’ve completed the evaluations, you will see the type of tasks that are available on your dashboard. You can work on as many tasks as you choose, on any device, whenever you want and from anywhere you please, as long as you have a solid internet connection.
