Paid Resources For Work At Home Jobs

While it’s true that you should never pay for a job, there are some legitimate job lead databases that do the work of screening out scams for you. If you understand how to screen out scams, then I would recommend you stick to free resources. But, if you want to pay for people to screen out the scams for you, here are a couple paid resources I recommend:

1. Home Job Stop

HomeJobStop is a longstanding paid telecommuting jobs database that has been recommended by numerous reliable sources for years.

Click here to read my Home Job Stop review.

2. FlexJobs

FlexJobs is another good paid site to research work at home job leads. Click here to visit FlexJobs.

Other Resources Related To Work At Home Jobs:

The Telework Coalition:

Although the site doesn’t directly provide job leads, I STRONGLY recommend you read it on a regular basis to keep up with what’s happening with telecommuting. Click here to visit The Telework Coalition.

InnoVisions Canada

InnoVisions is geared primarily for employers to help them evaluate potential telecommuting or flexwork programs. While they do have a page with a list of telecommuting resources for potentially finding work at home positions, some of the sites on the list are outdated. That’s something you’ll come across frequently on the internet and why it’s important to follow the rules of home job search due diligence.

    I’m really investigating Paid to Place and other home income opportunities. I’m unemployed and want to have something I can do myself without the restriction of work hours now. I’m doing so much volunteer work that I now need a job that revolves around my schedule. Thanks for this site. I’ll come back to it again!

    Im looking for a at home job where I can use my computer. I work a job where Im barely making ends meet I want to do something online because I actually have the time to sit and do it. I was wondering can you reccomend some jobs that don’t envolve telecommunications and are more somputer based work?

  3. John C. says

    I think Heather might mean not involving as much telephone communication as some of the other jobs posted. I think she may be leaning more to just the computer aspect of the jobs she is seeking and not so much the telephone.
    I was also interested and wondering if you had any recommendations as to which jobs you know are legit. I am a 22 year old who has a minor disability but i’m in dire need of extra income to make sure I can make a acceptable living. Any info or help you have to offer would be greatly appreciated. I’ve been online all day and this is the most helpful site I have stumbled upon.

    • says

      John, that’s what the sites listed on this page are for. If you click over to them, you’ll find that they have a huge amount of home job leads – and some of them also have a forum so that people can exchange experience and warnings.

      Maybe Heather misunderstood what telecommuting is? Telecommuting is simply home jobs or home freelance work. It doesn’t have anything to do with the phone. The sites listed will have plenty of job leads that have nothing to do with using the telephone.

    I am a mother of 4 children 4,3,2,1 and I desprately need a work at home job. I am a teacher but with the jobs in education being few far and in between I need something legite, work from home. I have sold insurance in the past and telemarketing as well. What can you recommend that will help our family out?

    Thanks,

      Veronica,

      I would definitely join the free forums at Work Place Like Home & WAHM listed at the top of the post. I think you’ll find what you’re looking for there.
      They list a great deal of legitimate companies – and people also ask about experience with companies so you can get a great deal of feedback as well.

        Thank You Paul I will most definitely do that. Any thoughts on the Melaleuca products and work from home business ?

        • says

          Paul if you do not mind I can speak on Behalf of Melaleuca. I have been in the company since January this year. One thing that set it apart for me was I can use all the products, I have many allergies and none affected me. Also it was more a shopping cooperative, harnessing the combined buying power of groups so the little guy got a great deal also. Also it was important to me since it is Gluten Free and Nut free the vitamins (big deal for me personally). As for the payment arrangements, it is based on bonuses. Normally 8 people in your team as preferred customers means you are making a profit. I hope that helps there are many resources to help with this company.

        • Joe says

          Many, if not most MLM opportunities have an exit strategy that they do not speak of, The reason being, there is a FINITE number of prospects for each MLM opportunity, and of those finite number of prospects, a large percentage have been exposed to at least several OTHER competing MLM opportunities. In other words, you are competing for the “eyes” and “ears” of your potential prospect(s) with several dozens of other MLM companies doing the same.

          Also, the payout strategy determines whether you’ll actually earn more than the 99% of other MLM affiliates out there, so investigate the payout structure before you jump into any MLM.

          Also, many of the leaders in MLM have been RECRUITED from other MLM companies (this is something MLM companies do not like to reveal) with pre-existing affiliate network downline… and the process continues often with the big earners jumping from one MLM opportunity to another because of the huge bonuses and paychecks, and privvys they earn by bringing their downline with them to the new company.

          The worst is the attrition rate. Approximately 80% of all your network affiliates that you’ve invested so much time, money and effort to recruit will quit within 6 months. And of the remaining 20%, approximately 80% of your recruits will do just about nothing.

          To succeed in MLM, you need to recruit 7 days a week (forget the part-time business concept that MLM companies preach to you), train, reward and communicate to your recruits constantly, and FOCUS on the 1 to 3 in your downline that are go-getters.

          MLM is a 365 days-a-week business, not a part-time business as so many preach… if you want to succeed in MLM, that is.

    Hi Paul, thank you so much for putting up all this info! I have a renewed sense of hope now.

    I’m wondering if you have come across any organizations that save some telecommuting jobs for disabled people specifically? I’m thinking of calling the Dept of Social Services to see if this is something they’ve considerd.

    Thanks in advance for any info or insights you have!
    Warm Regards,

    What about surveysay.com? this sight says i will have to pay nothing out of pocket and just take online surveys for money and rewards? sorry i am a recent stay at home mom after having our third child and I am just looking for a bit more money.

  10. Adele says

    Hi Paul,

    The information you take time to research and post is incredibly valuable. Thank you!
    My question is this: I am overwhelmed by the tons of information I have read thus far. What is the best site for a work-at-home newbie to log onto? I am also technically challenged, but motivated to learn.
    Thanks!

  11. Joseph says

    Hey there. I have recently been reading your post and I find them very helpful. I have a job now but on my down time I would not mind making more money outside of work. Do you have any legit websites that you would recommend that are legit?

    Paul,

    Is low-cost Niche Blitzkrieg program reliable and trusty opportunity to consider? and is it a big market still on the Marketing Affiliations business?

  14. Katherine says

    I fell for their scam as well and they SAY they have a 60 day money back guarantee, so I called 3 weeks after I bought it to get my money back, They cancelled it but never refunded my money, I called them several times and they told me that by law they have 30 business days and now it’s way past that time and they keep telling me that it’s getting taken care of….Yeah whatever…If this is what they are doing to you, Contact the Better Business Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission. This scam has got to be stopped! and NOW!!

  15. Elaine says

    Hi Paul,
    Very informative info here. I also would like to work from home but I am looking for a data entry position. Any ideas on where to begin looking?
    Thanks,
    Elaine

    • says

      Finding data entry positions is extremely tough, because there are people in certain countries that are willing to do that type of work for extremely little money and you’ll be competing with a huge number of people. Your best bet is to join one of the forums listed at the top of this page and start networking with people in the forum and sharing job lead tips.

  16. Clovis says

    Hello Paul, I too get allot of emails about working from home and I know there all bogus but I was reading one called Wealthy Affiliates and this one seems different from the rest. Ive even ready reviews and they all seem positive, but I would like to get your opinion about it. thank you

  17. says

    Paul,

    So glad that I found you, Just started reading, I’m soon to be 74 and in debt over my head
    Is there a site; a person can go to that would be for catalog sales at home (Customer Service). I don’t have a vehicle and over the years I done a lot of Customer Service work.
    Lost $49.95 on that Global Data, they said my request for a refund was over their 60 days
    So I need HELP

    Thanks,

    Hi Paul,

    Thank you for your honesty and integrity. I’m very thankful for the information you’re providing and grateful I found your site.

    Might you have a review, an opinion or done any research on making money from cell phones; by way of free app downloads for example? There are others that I’ve seen and I’m wondering if they’re legit.

    Thank you for any information you can provide.

    Hi Paul,
    Thanx for the infors above, I am always spectical about work online as I know most of the sites are scam. I am also looking at megan jackson profit from home and everything in it sounds convincing but as they mention to pay something to them, i definitely know straight away that it is a scam so thanx. Yet to check the sites you gave in the beginning of this but hope they are really real deals…Just want to ask if you have come across the SFI website..is it a scam or a genuine one!!!

    thanx,

    xoxox

  21. katherine says

    I clicked on a link to use the work at home and it took me to the web fortune vault, well i’m so glad that i didnt click on the link even after all that was said, i noticed that they had individual pictures but that wasn’t the person, they use pics from a vault?! I’m so glad that I googled about the company and found you!!! To begin with I dont believe a company that wants to charge you 100.00 to start a program, i understand they have to make money as well but that was a little to much out of my pocket!! Thank you Paul for all your hard work on this issue!

  22. Marsha Hutchison says

    I am very pleased to have found this information on your site. I am in search of finding a way to make extra money from home. I am clueless as to how this works and I know there are many scammers who prey on desperate people. Thank you for sharing this information.

  23. Jenny says

    Thank you for the information! I’m a recent college grad trying to work while waiting to go back to grad school. I’ve managed to get a part time job at Target, but that alone is not enough. I haven’t been able to find a 2nd part time job so I’ve been trying to find some work I can do during my time off. I’ve been searching and searching for possibilities but only found scams or being paid for taking surveys and that takes way to long to earn money. I will definitely be trying as many of these as is reasonable.
    Thanks again! I truly believe you saved me headaches and being taken advantage of!

  24. Randy says

    I have been looking for legitimate work-from-home jobs for a while now, but pretty much gave up believing that most were scams. But even so I will check out a link now and then, and that is how I found this site. I work a full-time job, and five years ago my ends met, but now it seems like I struggle every month to pay rent and have to hop-scotch my utility bills just to get by. Like many people I’m not looking for a get-rich-quick scheme, only something that I can spend 15-20 hours a week and supplement my income.

    I will certainly delve into this information you have generously provided, my only concern is if it is current. The posts at the top of the comment section are nearly two years old – does that mean the listings you provide above that are also two years old, or have you periodically updated the top portion of this blog? Sorry if I’m being pushy, you are providing this information for free so one should not be critical when offered a helping hand. But I’m sure this is a question that a lot of people might be thinking when they’ve reached this page. Thank you.

      Tim, I sent you my response by email, too:

      Tim. People do make money doing it. I’m more familiar with people doing it for recruiting agencies or investment firms.

      What they’re saying makes sense. I know that good copywriters do a great deal of research when writing their direct marketing copy. That being said, I have no idea how good their course is or how they teach you to get clients.

      I have mixed feelings about AWAI from what I’ve read, but I
      don’t have any direct experience with them.

      I’m guessing that they’ll try to upsell you into a bunch of other stuff.
      I’m also guessing that they would honor their refund guarantee.

      Sorry I can’t be more definitive.

  27. Timothy says

    Paul,

    I’ve been reading your website again looking for a home base business. The first one that came up was nicheblitzkrieg. I’ve seen this on your site a couple of years ago and actually paid for the course and was unsuccessful at many, many attempts to get support with no success. I notice this is still being advertise on your site today. I still receive email messages from Michael Brown about the course. I tried to send him a reply on the latest email I received from him and received the following message: This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

    Delivery to the following recipients failed.

    [email protected]

    I also went to http://www.michaelbrownsupport.com/ and tried opening a ticket and was unsuccessful just like before. I can’t help but wonder if this is some type of scam. I was hoping I could get started again. I though it might have been a problem with there support back then, but it still seems to be the same today. Can you help?

  28. Timothy says

    Paul,

    What do you know about AMR (affiliate money revolution)? Does Michael Brown own this?

    Thanks in advance!
