Flexible Online Tutoring and Teaching Jobs - Huge List - Work at Home Trust

November 30, 2017 0
If you are a former teacher who loves teaching but would prefer working from the comfort of his/her home, keep reading. If you are a person who enjoys talking and helping others, then this post may be for you. If you're looking for a tutoring job to supplement your income or as a full-time income, then welcome! Let me share with you these online teaching and tutoring opportunities that I've found. Ready. Set. Go!

Wait... Before I continue, let's first talk about the difference between teaching and tutoring. Teachers are required to teach one or more in-depth subjects, whereas, tutors are often just helpers with subjects students either struggle or want to advance in. Teaching jobs usually require more qualifications and are often paid a little higher than tutoring. Another difference is that online teaching jobs don't usually require face-to-face (through camera) sessions with students, whereas, most tutoring jobs would require face-to-face tutoring. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's continue with the job opportunities.

My Most Recommended Resources for Bloggers

If you love blogging and would like to also monetize on it, one of the best things to start with is affiliate marketing. ShareASale allows you to have access to some of your favorite resources that you would love to share with your readers. The good part is, you also make a percentage of purchased items without the buyer paying anything extra! Basically, you get rewarded for exposing awesome resources to others!

Media.Net is one of the BEST alternatives to Google AdSense. It is very easy to set up by simply copying and pasting codes on your preferred spots on your blog. Not only that, the ads respond very well to the content of your blog. If there's anything you don't want to see, you can take it out. Media.Net may be new on the block, but it can easily compete with AdSense and even provide you with more revenue.

If you need an easy image editor with stunning free images, Desyner will be your best friend! for some reasons, I haven't seen many bloggers recommending this tool. It is very similar to Canva, so I'm not yet sure which of the two is my favorite. You don't have to be a graphic designer to easily put a gorgeous image together. It is easy to save your projects and even download images in PNG for free (something missing in Canva). There's also a premium plan which is very affordable and comes with more features.

If you aren't new to reading blogs, then you must have come across many bloggers recommending Grammarly. Let me tell you, they're right! Making typos is human; Grammarly helps minimize your mistakes by editing all your writings for free! Of course, if you want better and more features, there's also the premium plan.

Customer service call center jobs are currently some of the most popular work from home jobs. Almost every company (big or small) needs some form of customer service. So if you fulfill the requirements and love speaking to people, then a work at home call center job may be perfect for you. Some companies hire call center agents directly, but other hire them through third-party firms; it's called BPOs (Business Process Outsourcing). It simply means they pay other companies who specialize in recruiting agents to take calls.

General Review: For the most part, reviews seem to be good, but there are also negative reviews. Agents get paid by talk-minute or wrap-up time. It usually takes weeks to months to get a response after applying (assessments). Training is paid and all payments are usually on time. The job can be stressful because of constantly answering calls, but the flexibility of the job in terms of work hours balances it out. Most positions are temporary so compensation can be very low when little to no work is available. No benefit packages.

13 Free Sites to Get Stunning Images for Blogging - Work at Home Trust

November 23, 2017 0

Blogging is a fun way to express yourself and it can bring many opportunities as long as rules are followed. What rules am I talking about? Well, besides NOT plagiarising by unauthorisedly using other publishers' contents (obviously), bloggers must be very careful when using images on the internet to publish blog posts. Years ago, I had no idea about this and just downloaded images from Google thinking it was all public property. It wasn't until I saw the phrase 'royalty-free' by other bloggers on many occasions when referring to images that I started wondering. And as always, I put on my research hat and started looking for detailed information.

Basically, most images on the internet are posted by individuals like you and me. Some of those images may show up on Google Images but it doesn't make them public properties. Different authors attach different licenses to their images. This means that whoever decides to download the images must abide by the rules set by the author. Some images may be royalty-free (no payments for each use), some may require attribution (adding the source), some may be for personal use only while others may be okay for commercial use (adding on sold items such as ebooks). Whenever you take images from the internet, it is important to always look at the license. Here are fourteen sites where you can get free images for your blog:

This post may contain some affiliate links. Please read my full Disclosure for more information.

Pixabay
This one is one of the most popular free image sites. Images are usually free for commercial use without attribution required. That's where I get a lot of my images.

Pexels
This is another popular one with royalty-free images for commercial use and not attribution required.

Public Domain Archive
The images here are for public domain as the name clearly states which mean anyone can use the images for whatever he/she desires. There are free images released every week.

Desygner
This one is primarily an image editor. It has free images available while you're editing which makes it very easy and less time-consuming. You simply search for the image you desire by using the appropriate keyword.

Canva
Canva is one of the most popular image editors used by bloggers. It also comes with free images like Desygner.




Free Images
These are free images that require attribution.

Open Photo

Images here are typically royalty-free and free for personal and commercial use. Attribution is encouraged/required.

StockVault
These are primarily royalty-free images and free for personal and commercial use. No attribution required.

Unsplash
Images here are also royalty-free but attribution is encouraged though not required.

PhotoPin
These are free images with attribution encouraged/required.

PicJumbo
These are free images with attribution appreciated.

StockSnap
These images are royalty-free and free to use for personal and commercial use with no attribution requirements.

Google Images
With Google images, you must be careful. Not all images that show up have the same license term. The best thing to do to avoid problems is to filter the images.
Here is what I mean:

1. After searching for an image, go to setting and click on 'Advanced search.'



2. Next, scroll down, click the drop-down menu next to 'usage rights,' then select your desired usage right. I usually go for 'free to use, share or modify, even commercially.'

Bonus Site:
Work at Home Trust

One more thing; I just gave you brief descriptions of what each site is about, but please read each license to make sure you're not breaking any terms. Now you can start making elegant images for your blog without worrying about breaking license agreements! Do you know of any other stunning image sources?

11 Ways to Monetize Your Blog - Work at Home Trust

November 23, 2017 0

You've been blogging for some time and now you're ready to start making money from your blog. But there's only one problem; you have no idea how to go about doing that. Well, as long as you're realistic and not looking for a get-rich-quick scheme, monetizing your blog should be fairly simple. Here are eleven ways you could do that.
This post may contain some affiliate links. Please read my full Disclosure for more information.

Sell your services
If you absolutely love writing, you could offer freelance writing on your blog under a tab titled "Work with Me" for example. Give a detailed description of the service you can over and a contact email to be reached at. You can offer any other services you are good at.

Freelance writing on other blogs
There are many companies and other bloggers looking for contributors to their sites. You can go to writing freelance sites such as ProBlogger and Contena to look for writing gigs. Guest posts are usually free because the guest writer gains from the experience of being exposed to a new audience. It also increases the authenticity of their blog resulting in higher ranking in Google Search (SEO). But, you may find some paying guest posts. That's another way to make money from your blogging experience.

Sell images
Bloggers always need images for their content. Although there are many free image sites, many bloggers look for unique images to stand out above all the free ones going from blogger to blogger. You can display some samples on your blog, include it in your subscribers' freebies, and sell some directly from your blog. You can also sell them on platforms like BigStock, GettyImages, or AdobeStock.

Sell online courses
This is a very popular one among bloggers. You can sell e-courses through your email newsletter using email marketing tools such as AWeber and GetResponse. AWeber even has a free guide PDF book on What to Write in Your Emails. If you prefer using a third-party tool where there's a bigger audience, you can try Teachable.

Sell e-books
Sell your ebooks on your blog or Amazon Kindle to take your expertise to the next level. You don't have to start with a 300-page book. Most people probably don't have time to read all of that. Keep it simple, straightforward, and easy to read. Many bloggers sell 'cheat sheets' where they simplify a book into just bullet lists. It's attention-grabbing and almost imposes a call to action. I personally prefer reading such ebooks because they are quick and effective.

Coaching/Consultation
Once you've established your expertise and have gained online trust, consider coaching others who need step by step guide to the knowledge you possess. You can also offer consultation to answer people's questions.




Affiliate marketing
You've probably heard of affiliate marketing by now. Read my free mini e-book where I talk about what affiliate marketing is, how it is done, and the difference between affiliate marketing and referral programs.

Recommending your favorite courses
You can recommend other bloggers' online courses that you've taken and benefitted from. Receive a commission per sale.

Allow others to recommend your products 
If you have e-courses, ebooks, or tangible products that you'd like to sell faster, allow your happy buyers to recommend your products to their friends and readers in exchange for a commission on every sale. SendOwl is a tool many bloggers use to sell their digital products and create affiliate links at the same time.

Put ads on your blog
Not every blogger would recommend putting ads on your blog, but you have the option to do so and earn passive income. With ads, you usually get paid for the number of visitors who see the ads or click on them. Some ad programs require the publisher to have a certain number of visitors per month on their blog, but there are also those that have no requirements as long as there's no violation of their terms. Two very easy ones to join are Google AdSense and MediaNet.

Share all blog activities on social media
Last but not least, share your blog posts on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram. Share on multiple platforms, but try not to overwhelm yourself. Two to three social media pages should be more than enough in the beginning. The purpose of this is to expose your blog to more readers and of course to potential clients as well.

I hope you found this post useful. If you're a blogger, do you monetize your blog? If so, how? If not, what's holding you back? I would love to hear from you!

Our WordPress plugin allows you to create lightbox popups, floating footer bars, slide-ins, and other highly effective optin forms. OptinMonster also comes with built-in A/B testing functionality, robust analytics, and powerful exit-intent technology."

Image Editing




PicMonkey
I've used this one a lot. It used to be free to use and download, but now you'd have to upgrade before downloading. It is easy to use and you do not have to be a designer. I really love PicMonkey. It's by far one of my favorite image editors. I wish the free download was still available.





Canva
This one is stunning! It is easy to use and images are available at your fingertip.





Desygner
This one is very similar to Canva. I love it too.

Fotor

Fotor is an online photo editor I recently came across. It makes stunning graphics. Just like the ones above, it can be used for free, but there's also a premium plan available for more features.


Cloud Storage





My all-time favorite cloud storage. You get 15GB free storage.





The basic free plan comes with 2GB of space. You can upgrade to more storage space.


Collaboration/Productivity



Asana
Collaborate with your team and schedule your work for free. There's an option to upgrade to more features. I've used Asana before. It was nice for a free tool, but it is very limiting if you plan on expanding your business.





Hubstaff
Stay productive by getting an all-in-one collaboration platform that comes with time tracker, screenshot, automatic payroll, tomesheet, invoicing, and much more. You can try the free plan and upgrade if you need more.






Trello
Help your team stay organized for free. It is easy, simple, and very visual!

Voice/Video Conference



Skype
Make free calls, group calls, voice and video calls. It's now owned by Microsoft.










Google Hangout
Make free voice and video calls.







Join.me
Host free meetings and conferences.



Learning Resource




Udemy
You can take whatever online courses you want or teach courses. For Black Friday, courses are only $10.





Transcribe Anywhere
You can find free general and legal transcription courses here.




Teachable
This is a very popular course creating tool. It can be a bit pricey (£39/month), but it comes with many features such as reaching many potential students, website creation, domain name integration, sales pages, and more.





Alison
There are over 1,000 free courses to learn new skills.

Payment Method




PayPal
Get paid in a secured way.


PayPal.me
It provides a quicker way to get paid.





Payoneer
Don't have PayPal? Not a problem! Payoneer makes it easy to send and receive money from anywhere in the world. The exchange rate is also much cheaper because it is calculated based on the true market price. Sign up and earn $25.

TransferWise

You can send and receive money internationally without paying a huge fee in exchange rates. TransferWise only charges 0.35% of the amount plus £0.80. This is a good alternative to PayPal as it is cheaper. This is ideal for freelancers and online business owners who work with people from various parts of the world.

CurrencyFair
CurrencyFair also allows sending and receiving money internationally at a lower exchange rate. It charges only 0.4% on average of the amount exchanged in addition to 3 transfer fee. It is much cheaper than PayPal.



Ads





MediaNet
This is my favorite so far. It is very simple and easy to create ads. Ads are relevant to your blog, although... you wouldn't want to send your blog readers elsewhere. Media.Net doesn't require publishers to have a huge audience before being approved.







AdSense
Monetize your blog through traffic and ad clicks. It is easy to join and get approved. But if you violate any of Google's terms, your application may get denied or take much longer than it wouldn't have otherwise. Usual waiting time is 1-2 days.





Revenue Hits
This is another alternative to AdSense. It has an immediate approval system, so you aren't required to have a huge audience before applying.









Infolinks
This is also an alternative to AdSense.


Affiliate Marketing 
Earn commission when you commander products
Read e-book for more info






Earn on affiliate marketing without doing the extra work of inserting affiliate links! Skinlinks works with many brands, so you get compensated by recommending products that believe would be useful for your audience. All you'd need to do is link to the brand (if it works with Skinlinks) and earn when someone takes action.






This is hands down one of my favorite ones. So far, most of my favorite work at home tools are under ShareASale. You can also earn a commission by referring the network to other publishers.






MaxBounty has many companies under its network that you can get automatic access to. It also has a web hosting program and a referral program. If you like MaxBounty, why not refer it to others and earn a commission?




This is a very popular one. It has thousands of businesses registered. This gives you the chance to apply to multiple affiliate programs.




After getting approved, you will see a list of companies with the percentage in commission they offer. Some offer a flat rate (example: $50 per sale). You must apply to each company and qualify for their affiliate program before having the change to earn. Some companies automatically approve each application; that’s rare.






CJ Affiliate byConversant (formerly Commission Junction)
This is also a very popular one. CJ is one of my favorite affiliate networks.






If you’re not new to the online world, you’ve probably see Amazon products under many blog posts. Amazon Associates is an affiliate program that gives publishers the opportunity to earn a commission from Amazon products when a purchase is made using unique links.
