The Reality of Work-From-Home Opportunities

Sarah Lifestyle

Casting the many scams aside along with those paid online income opportunities that never work out the way they’re advertised, there are plenty of options to explore for anyone seeking to work from home and earn money online. There‘s a rather biting reality about work-from-home opportunities though, comprised out of various factors.Erratic earnings potential

Veterans of the make-money-at-home game definitely manage to uncover some of the best online income opportunities out there, but it’s mostly through trial-and-error, a journey which has had them being burned a few times. The subsequent earnings potential is very erratic, even though at times you can bring it down to a range which you can estimate your monthly earnings will fall within. For instance a writer using TextBroker International ( knows that there’s not much work to go around and so they’d have to supplement that writing income with work from other sources.

Even then, you can never say for certain that this month you’re guaranteed to make X-amount of money.

Market forces with an unfair advantage

A classic example of market forces coming into play with an unfair advantage is that of how big corporations will sponsor the creation and running of an entire YouTube channel, throwing all manner of professional tools, utilities and even upfront money at these channels. The average user whose aim is to make money from their YouTubing exploits cannot compete with these market forces and they often eventually get squeezed out.

In other online income generation spheres such as transcription, you could have worked very hard to transcribe a particularly inaudible piece of audio, only to wake up the next morning to the news that you won’t be getting paid for that completed work, because the “client cancelled” the order or something like that.

So it’s not as easy as it is made out to be.

What it takes to succeed

So, most mom-bloggers will probably agree that the mentioned online income channels definitely won’t make anybody rich, but will probably be just as quick to point out that the aim was never to be rich in this way, in any case. However, because more and more mom-bloggers are popping up, sometimes in direct competition with professionals who aren’t genuine mom-bloggers but compete in the same niche, the pickings are becoming slimmer and slimmer.

That’s why most of these work-at-home jobs and opportunities don’t pay nearly as much as they previously did. There are now more people willing to work online than there are opportunities available, so what it would take to succeed in that case is being a bit proactive about working and earning online.

Callmart is an app to make connections online, but while you’re busy facilitating that communication whoever it is that called you via the app gets billed, and guess who that money goes to? It goes to you and you can determine how much the per-minute fee is. This means that the monetization possibilities are quite vast, such as instantly being able to operate a consultancy business through which your followers or clients effectively pay you in real time by connecting with you to discuss whatever the details of the consultation process are.
