India you can also work from home

Work at home opportunities are comparitively little less to Indians than US; You find plenty of opportunities to work from home in US, but for Indians its little less possible though not completely possible. You can't really predict anything in life and with the number of lay-offs happing around the world, one really cant be restful about their job certainity. So it is always better to look around alternative opportunities to earn money before its too late, instead of regretting later when things are out of your hand and everything has fallen apart. I figured there are many possible alternative ways to earn money, working as a freelancer / telecommuter / independent contractor or you can take up some online business like affiliate marketing, flip websites etc. Most of the freelancing opportunities require some good enough experience, though, but the determination is something which brings plenty of opportunities at your doorstep which helps in making a living on your own.

  1. This is an excellent post, thank you very much. I understand that you cannot personally vouch for their trustworthiness, but may I please know if you have chosen the firms in your list after some sort of verification to ascertain whether they actually pay the people they hire? I do not intend to question the quality of research you have clearly done to come up with such a list, nor shall I hold you responsible for any potential misdealing with the companies should I find employment with them, but then I am rather apprehensive because I have heard of a number of scams running in India in the name of lucrative home-based jobs!

    1. Hello Abhiroop,

      Thank you for stopping by and writing your thoughtful words. Well, the only thing i would like to suggest you is to try them out as they not going to charge you to register or work for them. I myself have tried few and they are all scam free.
