I spent most of the morning integrating Twitter into my website and blogs and even added it to Facebook and Myspace.

Im not sure how it will all work out but I believe it might just turn into a great business tool.  Being able to let everyone know when you have made changes or updates is simple and easy. 

So far Im liking it.. If you Twitter let me know and be sure to follow us!

Check out the new lists!

It's been a long time coming but the new survey lists are finally up at It's Free!

You can now sign up with the Top 40 Survey sites (the ones that send the most surveys) or you can search through the Verified survey lists and ALL lists are now alphabetical and listed with the incentive they provide most often and which countries they accept!

We've also added a pics-n-pans section where we have listed every survey site we could find, the good the bad and the awful.  Here you can share your thoughts on the companies and see how other members feel about a particular site BEFORE you sign up.

Take some time and check them out.  A lot of new survey sites were added in the re-vamp.

Why do we fall for the scams

Reprinted from

This is easy to answer and hard to answer all at the same time.   It seems like when people in general get on the internet they tend to believe whatever they see.   Kind of like believing whatever you read in a newspaper or watch on television.

For instance why do you think those websites promising hundreds of dollars a day while you sleep are still up and running?    Ever see the websites promising data entry jobs and they have thousands of companies in their database you can work for?  All you have to do is pay a one time fee of $39.95 and of course this is the discounted price for one week only.   Bet if you go back a month from now they are still offering the discounted price.  I would also bet that once you pay for access to their wonderful data base you will find out there is no job at all.   Just a way to run a pay per click business and that business will cost you a lot of money if you don't understand what you are doing.

These places are still in business because we make it profitable for them to be in business.   With the mindset of it it is written it must be true we fall prey to their promises and send in our hard earned money. 

The internet is really not any different than the outside world.   The internet does offer us a information and a lot of it on any subject we wish to explore but it cannot make jobs magically appear with just your credit card number.   It cannot promise you work instantly.  Just because it is written doesn't make it so.

Before you hand over that credit card number do some research and make sure you know exactly what you are signing up for.   Stop and think about what it is you might really be purchasing and make sure you will be able to live with your decision.

You do What?

I was reading through a thread at It's Free for a Court Researcher position working at home.   One of the members posted that he felt it was a job to gather the information that allows the internet "Gurus" and late night infomercial shysters to send spam.

I got to thinking about it and had some mixed feelings so figured I would air them out here.  

There are many ways to work at home and not everything is for everyone.  One large sector is adult based.  Many work at home moms are busy talking on the telephone and entertaining adults.   This isn't something I could do simply because I would be too busy giggling. 

I watched a show the other day about a lady who runs her own webcam shows during the day.  My best estimate was that she was making around $10K a month!   Again, not something I could do because I don't think many people are that interested in seeing me dressed up as little bo peep. 

Another common "job" that comes around is posting ads on Craigslist.   Now obviously it's against Craigslist rules and you run the risk of losing your priveleges but many people are happily doing it.   Once again, not me, I am a little bit attached to my Craigslist account. 

I guess what Im saying, is that any company who wants to buy a list is going to get it from somewhere.   Take those late night infomercials about working at home.  You know the crazy like a fox spots that promise you will make lots of money and are missing out if you don't call?   A lot of research has been done and the last I remember, you are actually giving out your information to someone on the other end of the phone (probably working from home no less) and that information will then be forwarded on the Herbalife.   Now what do you think Herbalife will do with it?   Someone else working at home will be calling you and trying to get you to sign up.

So really, if the Court Researcher position is legit but you are gathering information for someone who will eventually sell it, is that really bad?   Someone is going to get paid for gathering that information.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

The first question to answer is probably what is an Affiliate Marketer?    The best way I can think of to answer would be to say an Affiliate Marketer is comparable to being a salesperson.

You basically "sell" something for someone else.  You can "sell" through your website, through writing articles, blogging, and many other ways.

Your first step is to find out what you want to sell.   There are many affiliate sites that will help you get started. 

Clickbank is popular for those just starting out.  They deal with a lot of ebooks.

Some of my personal favorites are:

Linkshare and Logicalmedia

Sign up with the company that is going to give you the best selection.

Once you are signed up you can pick the websites and companies you want to "affiliate" with.   Once you are accepted you will get an "affiliate link".   This is the link you will use to "sell". 

Place the links and banners containing your unique ID on your website, in your forum signatures and in your articles (if allowed). 

Now when someone follows your banner or link, you will get paid.   Well okay, it's not that easy.   Usually your visitor will need to make a purchase or sign up for a service.   THEN you get paid.  

This is the short version.  For more in depth discussion please visit us at and feel free to ask questions!

Will you sell your soul to make a buck?

So it's finally official.. We are in a recession and have been for over a year.   What does this mean when it comes to working at home?  It means more people are looking for ways to make extra money at home.  It also means if you are already working from home you are probably looking for more ways to supplement your income from home.

Which brings us to the point of this article.  There are many make money from home ventures floating around.  Every work at home forum you visit has the spammers.. you've seen them.   A common ploy is the "As seen on Oprah" work at home scam.  It's a cash gifting scam similar to the old fashioned chain letters, "send one dollar to this person, then they send one to you and the next three people". 

That one is a pretty obvious work at home scam but there are others that aren't so obvious.   There are all the "Buy my ebook and resell it" schemes.  Not really scams but they don't really help the person buying the book either. 

Then we have another classic, "Data Entry at Home".  Send in $35 and they tell you how to post the same ad and get money when people request the training materials from you.  The training materials, of course tell your customer to place the ad and do the same thing all over again.   This is also ran as a work from home job under "Processing Orders" or "Order Processor". 

My point is, there are lots of legitimate ways to make money from home for free but none of us are getting rich.   It can be tempting to try one of these work at home schemes or scams just to make a little extra money.   You may have already even thought about trying one of them out. 

What's stopping you?  Your sense of honesty?  Your integrity and morals?  You just KNOW it isn't the "right thing" to do?  

Good for you.  Give yourself a pat on the back and KNOW that there is something out that WILL help you boost your business or help you find that perfect work from home job.  The good people DO come out on top.
