Searching for work-from-home methods?

Posted On Aug 16 2019

Working and making money from home can be a dream, but it can also be a real thing. You can be cautious of the strategies of earning money by working at home, but they do exist. Here are some of them :

Working from home might help you focus on your work in the short term, but it can also make you feel cut off the larger operation happening in the office. Instant messaging and videoconferencing tools can make it easy to check in with coworkers and remind you how your work is contributing to the big picture. During the week, music is the soundtrack to your career (cheesy, but admit it, it’s true). And at work, the best playlists are diverse playlists — you can listen to music that matches the energy of the project you’re working on. Video game soundtracks are excellent at this. In the game itself, this lyric-free music is designed to help you focus; it only makes sense that it would help you focus on your work as well.

Some companies like outsource customer-service operations to third-party companies who then hire home-based workers or “agents” to take calls and orders. When you call 1-800-flowers, you may be speaking with Rebecca Dooley, a retired police officer and employee of Alpine Access, a major call-center service. When you dialed the number to 1-800-flowers, your call was automatically routed to Rebecca’s spare bedroom in Colorado. Alpine Access currently employs more than 5,000 work-at-home customer-service agents who take in-bound calls (there’s no outbound or cold calling) for dozens of companies. “This works perfectly for me because I can set up my hours around my family’s busy lifestyle,” says Dooley, who usually works 20 to 32 hours a week, depending on her schedule.

Don’t go to non-work appointments in the middle of the day. “I try to make doctor and dentist appointments just as I would in a company office, first thing in the morning, last thing in the day to minimize disruptions of my work,” says Linda Stokes, managing partner of the Academy Physicians, a physician recruiting company in the Albuquerque, New Mexico, area. Get in-person time with co-workers. Once a month the four-person virtual team at Moreno Valley, California-based commercial telecom company TelecomQuotes meets in person. “I’m a big believer in kinesthetic learning or learning by doing and that’s a bit of a lost art with our virtual world,” says CEO Michael Bremmer. “There is something about white boarding an idea, while talking through the story and everyone is leaning in, engaged, thinking about a common goal, drawing on the deep water thoughts, that you just don’t seem to get on a conference call or video call.” See more info at Earn A Regular Income From Home.

One of the easiest ways is to ensure you get paid weekly is to be self-employed and working directly with freelance clients. By eliminating the middleman (i.e. a freelance platform like Fiverr or Upwork) where payment can be delayed because the platform collects the payment, keeps a small percentage, and pays you at their convenience. By working directly with a client, you both decide on a payment schedule if the work is recurring. Since you work at home, the easiest payment method will be PayPal. You send an invoice once a job is completed and you receive the money as soon as the client approves the invoice.
