By taking a little more time and asking yourself these simple questions could decide between your failure or success. And could even save you time and a whole lot of money.

It consists of building products for a certain type of company (sewing, wood constructing, electronics, etc..) and sending the products back to the company when finished, for a paycheck. From my experience, the majority of websites only give you a listing of these companies claiming that you’ll earn $400-$500 weekly. Here’s how it works, when you get the listings of these companies, you will personally have to send for the info from the companies on your list. When and if you get the info, they will send you an order form with the price (ranging from $30-$40) of their package which contains patterns, sample of finished product and maybe some material. Afterwards, it’ll be up to you to get whatever else you’ll need to make the products. Costing you even more money. Now, very rare have I heard of someone making good money with these companies. There may be a few out there but you would need to do your homework in finding these companies. And the only way to do that is to buy in to these companies to see if you were to get a paycheck, which could cost you a substantial amount of money, or find someone who has been paid by one or more of these companies. “How a Mystery Shopper Earns a Paycheck” Mystery shopping is very popular.

You go to the location as a customer but you will be completing a questionnaire or evaluation sheet about the location. After completing the assignment, you will then file the sheet either electronically, faxing or postal mailing it to your company for a paycheck. There are a few reputable websites out there that offer these mystery shopping companies. These jobs are a very good source of parttime income. “Is Data Entry What You Think it is?” Data entry has become very popular in the past year. I noticed it moving forward from the mid-point of google adsense. You are paid to do typing assignments for a particular company. But do be careful of these types of businesses. These companies make claims of earning a home income with their company listings. Majority of these companies will only scam you! Their listings consist of only outdated information. There maybe some websites that could assist you in finding this type of work.

If they don’t offer testimonials, there are no satisfied customers. 2) Money-Back Guarantee- If the company does not offer a 100% money-back guarantee for at least 30 days or longer. I would not trust giving them my money. The longer the better. There are too many scams to take a risk. You can always use the guarantee to back you up if you need to make a complaint. 3) Not Enough Information- Make sure they answer your questions. If they can’t answer the most important questions, they may have something to hide. I know they can’t tell you everything before you make your purchase but the important questions,for example; how you get paid and when you get paid should be answered.
