Survey’s That Pay

surveys

Everyone asks if you can really get paid to take survey’s and the answer is YES!!! Most time’s the way it works is you sign up, provide information about yourself and your life, and the provider will send you survey’s that you qualify for. Now keep in mind, you often get paid based on the length of the survey. Most times it’s $1 for every 10 minutes. Its not a lot of money, but if you really need extra cash, you can do this vs playing candy crush.

Also, you have to wait for them to send you survey’s so its great to sign up with a few different providers, you just want to make sure they are legit ones!!

My favorites are: ((click the survey name to sign up))

Survey Savvy 

Paid View Point

Swagbucks

Ibotta  (discounts and cash back on groceries at your choice of stores!)

Inbox Dollars

Fusion Cash

One of the great things is you can usually do these from your phone, and you can also share them with other people too!!!

Another thing I love is Survey Savvy usually has an opportunity for you to participate in a study program. For instance right now, by letting them monitor your shopping habits for 6 weeks, you can earn $150. That’s a nice chunk of change just for letting them watch what you buy (as long as you dont buy illegal things online lol).

Now Swagbucks is a tad different in that you get paid for doing surveys, taking polls, and other tasks. Also for shopping!!

Go sign up for these, especially Survey Savvy right now so you can participate in their Holiday Bonus!!!

Why Do You Blog??

Why do so many people blog??? A few reasons we will talk about. One is it’s a good income, though for most it takes years! Another reason is it’s a great stress reliever! It’s also fun way to share your ideas. And many people can test products for free if they write reviews for them!why blog

 

The first thing that shocks people is they can get paid for it. Yes you can, but keep in mind for most people this takes 1-4 years time as you have to build up followers. Most companies require 10,000-100,000 followers for a 6 month period before they will put ads on your page.  My blog hit that range within 60 days, but I worked my butt off during that time.

can you get paid to blog

The first thing to do if that is your goal, is NOT to focus on money. Instead you need to be yourself, have a plan on what you would like to talk about, and be consistent with your blogging. Before you publish your blog, go ahead and write out 3-12 articles. Make sure you have engaging pictures to go with each one. Once you have that done, you can publish 2-3 a week your first month and spend time focusing on networking.

 

Join blog parties each day if you can and share your articles, plus check out other bloggers with great content. This is a great (although time consuming) way to get followers from people you don’t know. Each time you publish an article, make sure you also share it on social media. Pinterest and Facebook and Instagram and Twitter are the best ones to use. Utilize hashtags that describe what you are talking about.

 

Once you have a good following, you can start doing product reviews. Remember not to “sell out” and keep most of your blog fun! Talk about your week, share funny stories of things your kids did. Share recipes or crafts. Most important, remember to be yourself!! Blogging should be a fun way of talking about life, and if it beings in an income, that is a huge bonus 😉

Pyramid Schemes, Scams, Direct Sales And More!

“Are Selling Products A Legit Income??”

I have to say this is one of the most popular questions I get emailed. But the truth is, even I wondered this same thing before getting involved in this business. A few years back, I was approached to join a company, and my instant thought was Pyramid Scheme and scam!! It’s sad that I thought that way, but many people do as unless you are in this business or well educated about it, you just know what you hear. Many of these companies we think are scams, are actually backed by the Better Business Bureau and have been around for many years!!! So today I am going to cover a few of these popular questions, along with how to know if something is legit and the truth about Pyramids.

Is it Legit?!?!
Direct Sales Companies are VERY legit. They are large companies that chose to pay independent contractors to advertise them instead of using TV adds, Billboards, etc. They are actually helping our economy by putting the money in your pockets vs some very large CEO of a TV station. To find out if a company is legit, you can google them or see if they are registered with the Direct Selling Association. You can also read the reviews about the company online, but remember to only take so much away from those. Job’s are like food, each person has a different preference and different experience so expect to see both good and bad reviews.12004772_995077193889412_9133849978607155890_n
How these companies work, is you advertise their products for them and in return they pay you a commission. Each company has a different pay scale, but in my experience the average is between 10-40%. Finding out what they pay is very important before you begin! Direct Sales companies are very smart, they know people are going to share a product they love, and they encourage that sharing by paying you for it. What better advertisement is their than a happy customer?? I would believe my friends love of a product a lot more than I would a celebrity on TV.
The companies usually require a start up fee, and this is what scares most people. They see that fee and instantly think it’s a scam and they are being robbed. But the truth is, MOST jobs have a start up cost such as background check, uniform, training, etc. With direct sales companies, you want to make sure your cost comes with something!!!!! It should include samples for you, catalogs, brochures, products, a website, product discounts, training, etc. The average cost of a start up kit is around $100 and most have ways for you to make that right back by selling the products in your kit. If the cost is very high, with no products for you, think twice before joining and look more into the company!!! Start up costs are also a tax write off!!! It’s a business investment and you get it back at tax time. The IRS knows direct sales companies are a legit way to make an income.

 

Pyramid Schemes
Pyramid schemes are when one person is on top and makes a lot of money and the people on bottom don’t make hardly anything even though they are doing all the work. These are out there and you want to be careful, but most times they don’t sell any products, more work on just recruiting other people to join. Here are a few signs a company is a Pyramid Scheme and you want to run for the hills.
According to the Direct Selling Association, here is what you should watch for in Pyramid Schemes:
1) Promising lots of money for no work
2) Teaching people to recruit and not sell a product
3) Very large start up costs
4) Not having a product that they sell
5) Having a few people who make a lot of money on top, and a lot of people on the bottom making very little money

Pyramid VS. Direct Sales10573_348288578631716_299887124_n
Now to some people, the direct sales business mirrors a pyramid, but the honest truth is in MOST jobs you do have some people higher up. For example, in the school system you have a Principal on top, then teachers, then par pros, then students. In most direct sales companies, you have someone who has been in the company for awhile on top, then your sponsor, then yourself. The people on the top do usually get paid off your income, but to do so they have to keep themselves active AND they have to help their team members. They get paid for having a team and teaching other people to be successful, just like managers do. Just because some people make more on your team in direct sales, does not mean it’s a Pyramid.

As you can see, direct sales are a great and very real way for people to earn an income. In fact, direct sales companies have been around since the 1920’s! They do get a bad reputation though because of the way some people teach their teams to market. If you do it the right way, you can be very successful, make a great income, and have fun all at the same time!!! My #1 tip to be successful is find a product you love and use, and share it, never sell!!!

Starting A Business

work from homeMany people are scared to work from home because they worry about how to get started, how to be successful, how not to be a failure, and how to know if a start-up cost is normal or a scam. Starting your own business is scary, but it is also empowering as it allows you to take your future into our own hands!!! It’s a very brave act that many people never have the courage to go after! But how do you get started and how do you make sure you are successful? I’ll share some tips as I know quite a lot about this subject!

 

pizap.com14295431785461The number one tip for being successful working from home is find a product you LOVE! Don’t look at the money right away, but instead search high and low until you find something you love, believe in, and would 100% use yourself and encourage your loved ones to use also. Work from home jobs can be tough as you need to set your own hours, push yourself, and get out of your comfort zone. But if you are passionate about your product/company than it shows and it makes your work fun!

You never ever ever want to be a sales person, that is just not fun! The tip to being successful and what I teach my team is to SHARE! Share why you love a product, why you buy it, the benefits of it, etc. Sharing is the way to make money, not selling. Keep that I mind when you pick something. Ask yourself, can I use this everyday and share it with others everywhere I go???? ((if your product advertises itself, HUGE bonus for you as it makes your work easier))

 

Once you find a product you love, check into the company and what it takes to work for them. Most require a small 62c12fbc492dc0c1be227f2645128c69start up fee which should give you a website and tools to get started such as products, catalogs, business cards, samples etc. If it requires a fee with NOTHING in return for you, research more into the company. Make sure to also look into what it takes to stay active with the company. Some require you to buy a certain amount from them each month in order to get paid. So they may require you to buy $200 worth of products but you only sell $50 worth and in the case you would be losing money. Always look into the requirements! Other companies require a website fee, some won’t pay you until you sell a certain amount, and others only pay you once you earn a certain amount of money. These are all things you want to know BEFORE signing up! Never be afraid to ask questions especially when it comes to your business.

 

 

Research the business and products. You are going to find good and bad re10943030_1022567594424071_1797698394091688528_nviews on everything out there, but don’t let that discourage you. If all you find is bad reviews, then take that into account. Remember though that some people just like to trash companies so weight what you find, both the good and bad. If you are selling a product people consume, research, research, research!!! This is VERY important as some products do have ingredients that can hurt people and you need to know what’s truly in those products and the side effects of consuming them. ((example: artificial sweeteners such as Splenda and sucralose are now showing long term effect and are in MANY consumable diet products…but don’t take my word for it, jut google it and research yourself))

 

 

11037143_933118456751953_6989970111978092783_nKnow your market and if the product you are selling can reach your friends and family. If you have a lot of friends interested in health and fitness, then joining a company like that will allow you to have a product they would be interested in. If you are interested in makeup, but most your friends prefer fitness, keep that in mind as you may have to work harder to make sales. Also look at the price of products. Is it something many people can afford? And is it something they will use often? Jewelry/bakeware/clothes are great, but many people don’t buy those items every single month which means you have to go out searching for new clients.

 

 

11008506_10153190080411760_5024804209952106402_nAnother great point when starting a business is to find a supportive and knowledgeable business partner! In most of these companies, you can join someone’s team which means they are there to answer your questions, train you, and help you to be successful. To me, this is one of the most important things as it makes things easier for you when you have someone cheering you on. Not to mention, having someone to go to with questions on how to be successful, how to time manage, and how to get your business rocking. Starting a new business can be scary, but having someone to help and encourage you can make a world of difference!! Trust me, after years in this business I know this to be true!!!

 

 

489a48abdc23f354f6af9fac81e21d9ennThese are just a few things to consider when starting your own business, but remember you should never be afraid to ask questions! Ask other people who have been in that company, or who have left the company. Find out what they liked/disliked about it. Also keep in mind that to work from home, you need to be your own boss which means you need to push yourself. Sure its tough at first, but when you consider the benefits, its totally worth it! I work when I want, as much as I want, and from where I want. I can work at the park, by the pool, or in my office. I’m the boss so I set my own rules!

 

Anyone can be successful working from home, you just need to be dedicated, find a product you love, do your research and never let excuses hold you back!

Getting Paid To Share Products

One problem many people encounter when trying to work from home, is finding what to do! The most popular option, especially for Mom’s, is working for a direct sales company. But how do you pick one??? My number one suggestion is find a product you LOVE! The key to being successful with this type of job is loving the product you are sharing. That way talking about it does not feel like work, and your passion and love for the product shows. When you love the product, you also will use it all the time and that is the BEST way to share it with others.

Sometimes you do have to shop around and try a few different products. The great things is many companies allow you to sample the products with a money back guarantee if you don’t like them! That way you can find out if this product will be a great fit for you or not. Also make sure and look at your friends and family and see if this is something they might be interested in. You don’t have to share it with them, you can do online parties, go to events, and meet people online who might want to try your product. You have so many options!!!

You can find a company with any type of product!!! There are so many great options!!! Here are some to check out. For more options and information on business opportunities, check out our Work From Home Directory.
