Five Home Online Work Ideas

1. Online Sales

Some independent, home based workers buy and sell products and skills online.  Among the best websites for the sale of goods and services are ebay, etsy, craigslist, and Amazon.

Buy like-new inventory, priced below wholesale, by visiting local yard sales, thrift stores, flea markets, and statewide factory outlets.

If you live near enough to a wholesale outlet, you can save a lot on shipping costs.

Idaho's main discount factory outlets include Boise Factory Outlets, featuring 16 stores, and North Idaho Outlet Mall in Post Falls, with 6 dicscount wholesalers to choose from.

2. Scan Craigslist.

Scanning craigslist for jobs or gigs is a legitimate, at Home Online Work opportunity.

Click on your geographical area, then click on Jobs, then check the box that says Telecommute, and hit Enter. Apply for all jobs that seem appropriate and are cost effective.

The key to success in landing gigs on craigslist is persistence, well crafted intro letters, and a Professional Resume.
