One of the perks of working from home is the freedom to choose the type of work you want to do and how often you want to do it.
Normally I would recommend sites like Elance and Odesk to find freelance projects. And while there is nothing wrong with those sites, a freelancer isn’t really making their earning potential because of all the bidding there is for just one gig. My friend Sylviane made me realize this in her post called What Prevents You To Make Great Money As A Freelance Writer where she also tells you where you can make money as a freelancer writer.
Three Websites Freelancers Should Bookmark For Clerical Work
When I started working from home the one thing I wanted was more control of my schedule. After working on a set schedule for nine years I was ready to work on my time and on a project by project basis.
I found these sites to help me make money from home while I figured out what I really wanted to do. Keep in mind these sites will not replace any income lost from work but when you sign up to all three there is a potential to make a part time income.
Virtual Bee consists of data entry work. You’ll be given snippets to type. It pays .30 cents for every thousand characters. The payout threshold is $35 and they are currently working on paying out via direct deposit.
Update: Virtual Bee is now part of the Smart Crowd team so now there are more opportunities to earn money.
Virtual Office Temps was one of the first sites I found that provided legitimate work for virtual assistants. They’ve recently updated their site and have recently reached out to me for available work, so I think now is a good time to sign up. I’m going back to update my profile too so I will see you there!
Click N Work is another great site to find ongoing projects. They have a variety of them available such as writers, information specialists, and web searchers.
So there you have it. There are some other sites available but before I share them I want to check them out and make sure they’re still around or if there have been any changes so be looking out for those in future posts.
