the use of Internet is rather accessible for the population, given
that its relative low cost. Probably you will need to have your own PC
with Internet at home, especially when you are looking for a job,
communicating via emails and using other related information.
are a lot of advertisements in Internet, newspapers, magazines and other
forms of advertising offering a wide variety of “WORKS AT HOME VIA
INTERNET”. They offer you business opportunities and stable work with
good and attractive salaries. Even though some of them sell “secrets to
become a millionaire” in short time. The most common ads offer work in
the following occupations:
Filling surveys about massive consuming
Packing and sending printed advertisements.
Selling make-up, beauty products, etc.
Assembling products like toys, crafts, etc.
Offering “secrets” to make fortunes in Internet.
Giving access to lists of “thousands of
employers” who need staff and works
Sending mailing and faxes
really know that the new immigrants are a vulnerable group of people and
run a high risk of being cheated by this kind of “company” and Internet
sites. Part of our job is to guide our readers in the economy and care of
their money, and we have done a study of many sites, and as a result we
have found the following aspects to be highlighted:
More or less words, all
of them say the same: ” they were going to help me make a lot
of money without having any experience",
Many of the “opportunities” offer access or subscription to work
data bases online, where companies and persons are supposed to offer work
all the time in exchange for a sum of money that should be paid to be
More than 90% of these sites charge for the
registration and are a complete fraud. They charge a small sum of money
for information with little or non value. The clients do not lose much
money ($10-$40) but there are thousands of innocent people who send
money, and the ones who really make money are the responsible of these
sites. Finally, they have a big business (but doubtful) about Internet.
Later some of them will offer to sell you the
real key to make money for a higher sum ($200 or more): a copy of the
website they have. They will show you that they have made money and you
can make it as well looking for your own clients. In other words, a
“pyramid” is made where the first ones who joined the “business” will
earn money, which will come from the ones who started the game and the
innocent ones who paid for curiosity.
As a “guarantee” signal and in order to win the
public confidence, many “companies” offer a 100%
Money Back GUARANTEE,
if you are not satisfied with the “product”. But few people claim for their money,
given that the time explanations should take, the language and the
expenses which will be more than the sum of the money sent.
Most of the websites offering works in Internet
at home are directed to “mothers”, who due to their family care are at
home and have free time during the day.
Psychological tactics used by these Internet
sites are well planned with a good persuasion power. Words are carefully
selected in order that the message fits to the needs, feelings and
expectations of the reader (easy work, independent, money, comfortable,
safe, etc.) They use marketing and advertising techniques with an
effective tested power (like how to prevent pain, have stability,
pleasure, security, etc.).
general terms, “easy” business opportunities and “working in Internet at home”
which are offered by many “companies” in USA ARE NOT REALIABLE NOR SAFE.
To know about this kind of offers can avoid you a waste of money and
time. There are all kinds of “COMPANIES” in Internet which will try to
take advantage of the public, especially those who are in need of an
occupation or work to afford fixed expenses of his family in Canada.
believe (as well as many experts) that the real opportunities to make
money in Internet “for people who are interested in finding a work at
home employment opportunity.... or starting an Online Home Based
Business” are rare. Maybe as rare as making money playing with the
savings in a casino.
REAL WORK IN INTERNET
are some activities, specialized work and services that would mean an
income using this via. Many persons, who have earned incomes in Internet
and create a way of working in the net, took advantage of their
professional training and dedication. Examples of these works are: phone
surveys, photos edition, photos (for websites, car sellings, houses,
etc.), websites design, translation of texts in different languages,
correction of texts and other freelance services.
are other kinds of jobs that give work and earnings via Internet to
experienced people who know the market. Most of them have achieved it
with training and after several rehearsals and mistakes. However, in
order to afford themselves and be profitable they demand a great
dedication (at least at the beginning) and a deep knowledge of aspects
such as Internet (tools, websites), marketing, software, design programs,
markets, commercial transactions, advertisements, etc. Examples of these
activities are virtual stores of different merchandises, on-line stores,
shops in e-bay, real states and similar others.
Be careful with those Internet sites
offering all kinds of business opportunities and works on-line, and
in order to pay you they also request the number of your credit
card. In Internet paying with Visa or other credit card can be an
unnecessary risk. A recommendable way and with less risk to pay via
Internet in USA
is to use methods like PAYPAL, 2CO and other similar systems.
If you decide to register and send personal
information to participate in rewarded interviews, surveys, work
sites via Internet, it is NOT ADVISABLE for you to use your main
personal e-mail. It is probably that too much publicity and not
useful material would be sent to you, so that reading and selecting
them would take much time. In this case create a new e-mail.
