Earning Extra Income

How To Earn Extra Income From Home

If I just review employment opportunities this blog won't serve it's main purpose

... That is help you to earn extra Income! Regularly I'll be updating this blog with lots of "money making ideas" here.

Today, let me talk about "Basic of Earning Extra Income From Home"

How to go about earning an Extra Income

Extra Income means an income that you can earn apart from the regular income coming in from employment or normal work. This earning can be used to payoff your outstanding debts or build up a capital account or spend it on luxuries that you could only think about before. Everyone seems to want a second income but no one wants to work a second job, so the extra income is normally seen as a windfall.

When we compare income levels in different countries, it is evident that the average income per person is less than $15,000 a year--in other words, where many people are near the breadline -- Extra Income really does make people happier and improves their lifestyle.

But countries which have average income above the normal subsistence level of approximately $15,000 a year, happiness seems to be income independent. For example, an average American ranks richer than an average Indian or an Austrian, but also less happy.

Why does this happen? People always look at their income relatively with some norm or the other and the norm keeps rising all the time. And this norm is what increases the spending, more or less in direct proportion to the income. Two things drive up the norm with which people compare their incomes. One is the income that they themselves have experienced -- which habituates them to higher standards of living. And the other is the income that their colleagues or neighbors get, and which they try to outdo.

The extra income options available today are targeted to generate employment and are targeted specifically at people who can use their skills that are lying dormant to make some more money for themselves. To achieve a moderate success in generating an extra income one should be aware of their strengths and weaknesses. This would greatly help in selection of a most suitable way to generate extra income.

The selection process consists of logical steps. Firstly one should ask themselves of an honest opinion of their strengths, what they excel at? What do people around them keep complimenting or criticizing them on?, are they perfectionists?, For example, if you are a computer literate you could help your neighborhood in upgrades, repairs or installation of software.

The extra income can also be augmented by doing extra seasonal chores like raking leaves in the fall or clearing snow in winters. These are just a few ideas, but making an extra income augmented with self analysis will take away the need for a second job.

Today the internet and the general market have a lot of ideas for generating extra income. Network marketing in general market terms has been successful to some extent. Internet offers something similar that says affiliate marketing. The internet also offers a host of other options like writing, advertising and simple technical non-technical jobs which can highly augment your regular income. The extra income that can be earned form these opportunities depends on how good your skills in the field of your selection.

Best Regards & Good Luck :-)

Data Entry Jobs

Is Data Entry Jobs Scam?

"Make money from home working part time on the internet. Very simple data entry jobs; anyone can do it; no experience, no special software, even your own computer is not required. You can even work from Cyber Cafe"

"This job is suitable for work at home moms, unemployed/under-employed and disabled peoples. It doesn’t matter if you have lost one leg, one eye, and one ear, divorced, widowed, and fired from your boss! Anyone can do it. All you need is simple internet connection and ability to process some English words!

Wow, wow


I'm sorry... the above one is an advertisement... does it sounds too good to be true?

Yes... it is!

This is a perfect example of scam. The ad looks great, website is looks promising... but what is the catch? Too many...

There are hundreds of types of "Data Entry Jobs" (scams) available on the internet. But today I cannot cover all of them. So I've decided to give some information on "Classified Ad Posting Jobs"

What is Classified Ad Posting Jobs?

The Concept:
You'll be given some advertisement copy; all you have to do is go to Free classified advertisement website and post add which is already provided to you. Each month you have to submit a job report to your employer explaining how many ads you have posted and to which website you have submitted. The employer will review your work and pay you your wages.

Let's assume that you are suppose to be paid 25 cents ($0.25) per ad posted; so if you have posted 1000 ads per month you'll get paid $250... not bad at all for part time simple work!

The Promise:
There is absolutely no restriction on how many ads you can post per month. The more ads you post, the more you earn! Just go to and search for "Free Classified Ads Site"; you'll find more than 30 millian websites! How much can you make if you are able to post ads to 30 million website? (Please read this article fully... you'll be shocked!)

The Catch:
There is a one time Registration fee (application charge) of $30 $50 or sometimes even more. This fee is to cover our administrative and training fee. You are never required to pay anymore after registration. You can get started immediately after registration.

Okay... Granted; if I could make $500 bucks per month working from home then why should I worry about registration fee?

It Begins now...

Well, now you have registered for this job and fully excited to get started. From your employer (?) you get a sample of ads and a list of few Classified ads website. Now you are very eager to start working... your heart beat is increasing... you are sweating... you just can't even take food so you decides to skip night dinner to work on the internet!

Aha... what an opportunity...

Time for frustration!

The ad copy which is given to you is reads like this-

"Ad Typists Required"
"We urgently require few hundred ad typing clerks from home. Work part-time/full-time from home on the internet; earn up to $5000 per month"

Remember, you are doing the same job which the above ad says.

The Scam:
The truth is there aren't 1000's of free classified advertisement site. There are hardly few hundreds exists. So there is no way you can submit ads to millions of websites. The web results that appear on Google aren't necessarily Classified ad sites.

And your employer requires proof of ads posted. Most of the legitimate Ad sites will give you confirmation number when you post ads and many will not. So you simply waste your time and energy by posting ads and don't get any confirmation. Let's assume that in your first month you post to 1000 sites (That's damn hard work!) Out of which 700 websites will not give you any confirmation number and your employer will not pay for that.

Most of the ads you post to classified sites will expire within 24 hours, 3 days or one week. So by the time you submit your performance report your employer there would no proof of work since the ad is already expired. So you'll not get paid for that!

After all these "Audit" process your employer will credit your account with $10-$20. But since the minimum payout threshold is $100 you'll not be paid. Your earning will be carries forward to next month.

More than 90% of the peoples will quit this job now... and that’s what the Scammer wanted. Few peoples will continue for couple of month and finally give-up with frustration.

So you have posted ads anyway. Peoples who are searching for data entry types of jobs (like you) will find ads you have posted. Few peoples will join the scam site like you... and the story goes like this...

When there will be an end?
