You've seen those ads in the newspaper - “work at home stuffing envelopes" - just send $20 and a self-addressed stamped envelope for all the details. It should come as little surprise that what you get for your $20 is instructions on how to put an ad in the newspaper promising to reveal the secret to “make money stuffing envelopes" for only $20 and a self-addressed stamped envelope. . .
Although you can make money doing this, you're basically buying a scam and told that in order to make that money you need to scam other people. Sadly, there are enough envelope stuffing work at home offers in newspapers and across the internet these days that thousands of people seem willing to trade their integrity for $20 a pop.
That's not how I do business and, if you want to truly build an online business, that's not how you should do business either.
The fact is that there are dozens of money making opportunities on the internet that don't involve scamming your customers or even taking the time to stuff thousands of envelopes - not to mention licking all those foul gummy labels!
If you're looking to work at home stuffing envelopes, I'm guessing that you're new to online business so let me offer you a few tips for finding legitimate opportunities.
1. Don't expect someone to pay you for simple chores
This encompasses not only stuffing envelopes but getting paid for surfing, reading email, or taking surveys. If you think to yourself “Why would someone pay me to do that?" you can be sure that there's some hidden trick that will end up costing you more money than you make.
2. Don't think you can get something for nothing
The great thing about the internet is that it allows you to leverage your work in a way no other medium can. You can put in a few hours work on your website (or someone else's website) and create something that will make you money for months or years into the future. But, make no mistake, you still need to create value with your content to earn your money and be wary of anyone who tells you differently.
3. Gratefully accept offers of help but carefully investigate offers of gifts
Advanced entrepreneurs have created systems that allow you to get experience in online business while helping you earn money at the same time. That's a win-win situation - you learn the ropes and they leverage their expertise in a way that earns them more than they could running a single website.
But, notice that they aren't offering you something for nothing. They offer to help you succeed in exchange for helping them succeed - a mutually beneficial partnership. Beware anyone who offers to help you for nothing. Those kind of people are just looking to play off your greed and there's always a hidden cost in questionable products and services you will need to buy once they get you into their “opportunity".
Unfortunately, you can't make $50,000 a month stuffing envelopes. . . if only it were that easy. But, you can make $50,000 a month running your own legitimate internet business and start earning money in less than an hour. Click here to discover how .
