If you have a computer or laptop and a secure internet connection, you have a way to get money now from the comfort of your home online. Whether you start your own small business, or find a legitimate company willing to pay you for your services, you can supplement your regular income or earn a living altogether using the web. Find out how.
Taking surveys - Cash in your pocket
Taking surveys for money is one way of supplementing your income on the internet. A company or group of companies send you surveys via email or provide a link for you to complete. The safest payment methods are provided through PayPal. You can also have a check mailed to your address. Be careful to avoid any companies that ask for your debit card, credit card or checking account number before you complete any online surveys. Unfortunately, there are many "scammers" who will try just about anything you can think of to get your precious bank information. Use your best judgement, or try searching the surveying company's name in a separate search engine to see if any complaints arise. Ideas for home business Starting your own small business can be one of the most lucrative ways to make cash from home. As many businesses do not turn a profit within their first two years of business opening, this may in fact take some time before a noticeable profit is generated. This is only an estimate, depending on the type of business, your company may take more or less time. Setting up your own website, and accepting debit or credit card payments through that site provide the quickest ways of transacting the business money into your account.
Playing it safe
Remain cautious of any websites advertising "Get Cash Fast", or "Need Money Now" directly on their website. This is usually a con to provide your bank account information at some point during the process. If you have been a victim of fraud or scams, contact your local police department to file a police report, and consider Identity Theft insurance, available at your bank. Contacting Betterbusinessbureau.com to file an online complaint is also recommended. Never give out personal bank details, unless you fully trust the website and notice "https:// "in green at the top of your browser.
