More Resources To Find Work-At-Home Jobs
Want to find more jobs? Here are some of the sites I use to find jobs. These resources list hundreds of jobs in a variety of categories. Please note that the listings below are NOT jobs (jobs are posted above). These are services that provide work-at-home job announcements. Some are free and some aren’t. While you never ant to pay a company to hire you, it is okay to invest in a service that can help you find a job. The services below are the ones I use.
Telecommuting Job Databases (fee required to access these services)
FlexJobs– Has tons of work-at-home and flexible job options plus a personalized login system that will identify jobs that fit your criteria, ability to have multiple resume profiles, job search tips and checklists, and much more! For the number of jobs and added service, its a must use for the serious work-at-home job hunter.

Usually I ignore emails I get about make-money-online programs. I learned a long time about, many of the suped-up, hyped-up offers have very little substance at a too big price. But something made me decide to check out Real Quick Commissions. Maybe it was the cheesy, poorly acted video that had my clicking “Buy now”, but as always, I was sorely disappointed.
Real Quick Commissions teaches how make affiliate income using Facebook fan pages, which is a viable idea. In fact, much of the information is okay. But I have a problem with programs that are deceptive, misleading or outright lie and that’s what Real Quick Commissions does. The sales video says:
1) No upsells…there are three.
2) No hidden fees…there are three.
The problem with Real Quick Commissions is the same for most of these programs in that they suggest that by setting up a fan page (or blog or website or twitter etc), money will roll in hand over fist. But success online is less about your choice of how you’ll make money and more about how well you market what it is you’re doing. Real Quick Commissions offers a marketing video taken from some other program. The marketing tips are viable, but many don’t fit with marketing a fan page. Second, the program talks about getting a cheap VA, but basically tells you to go to Fiverr and buy traffic. The problem with using Fiverr to get traffic is that in many cases you’ll get the “Likes”, but they aren’t real likes. In other words, the likes aren’t coming from people who are going to buy your affiliate product. So it looks good that you have 5000 likes, but you’re still broke. My recommendation is to save your money and not invest in Real Quick Commissions.
I get email all the time asking me about online programs and ultimately, my answer is the same. There are no sign-up-automatic-instant-income programs. There are no shortcuts. If you want to make money online, you have to get REAL traffic from people who want what you got.
This week’s alert isn’t directly related to working at home, but is important for you to know. If you work-at-home using your computer, you need very good virus protection. But not all protection catches everything. A couple of times, I’ve ended up on a site in which I’m told about a virus on my machine. In fact, the pop-up looks like a Microsoft notice. Even though I know its bogus, once it pops up, it might be too late. The box can’t be closed and essentially your computer is hijacked. Normally I do a “control-alt-delete” to close the browser and then do a restore to a previous day, and then run a scan. But I always wondered how these sites got away tricking people into thinking they have a virus and charging money to clean it up. Well, now the FTC is cracking down on this scam. The one the FTC is going after is slightly different than the pop-up ones I’ve seen, but work much in the same way. Basically, consumers are told they have virus, asked to pay money to fix it, and the scammers “fixed” it … but they didn’t because nothing was broken.
I think this scam is easy to perpetrate because legitimate virus software companies are SOOOOO difficult to get help from. In some ways, I think they take advantage of consumers as well. If you paid for the software, but you end up with a virus, shouldn’t the virus software company help you get rid of it without charging an extra fee? I think so.
When you work online, you need to learn to be suspicious of just about everything…pop-ups, email etc. There are too many people trying to take advantage of you and steal your money to not be extra careful.
