      An increasing number of people today are looking for ways to work from home. One big contributor to the work-from-home movement is moms who want to spend more time with their children. Those who choose to work from home also eliminate commuting time, save on gas, don't need a huge wardrobe and save on child care costs. Fortunately, along with the demand, there are many options for those wishing to make money from home.

    Call Center Representative

    • Large call centers are in business to sell products, provide customer service and collect delinquent credit card debt. Many people work at the physical location of these businesses, but some of the call centers employ people to work out of their homes. Usually the call center representative will be assigned a shift, during which time they will be responsible to either answer or make calls. Pay is normally by the minutes worked, and sometimes by commission.

    Websites

    • Building your own website is a way to make money from home. Those with skills in website design have an advantage, but beginners can learn quickly. There are many books and online programs available to help you. The income is derived from selling advertising and products from your website.

    EBay

    • Most people have things around the house that could be sold on eBay. Start with things you no longer need, then branch out to buying items for resale. Garage sales, flea markets and auctions are possible sources of goods to sell.

    Virtual Assistant

    • Small businesses and professionals who work from home may need various office work performed, but do not wish to hire an in-office assistant. Virtual assistants work out of their homes, utilizing skills such as: bookkeeping, typing, reports and spreadsheets. Phone calls can be routed to their homes, and the person calling will never suspect that the virtual assistant is not sitting in the actual business office.

    Telecommuting

    • A regular job can become a work-from-home job. Sometimes, companies are amenable to allowing employees to work from home, either for some or all of their work. Computers are used to send and receive correspondence related to the job.

    Crafts

    • Use talents you have to produce items to sell. Quilting, wood crafts and candles usually sell well. Your crafts can be sold through craft fairs, garage sales, consignment shops and flea markets.

    Writing

    • If you possess a gift for words, there are many outlets available for your work. Articles can be sold to magazines for publication. The Internet has opened up a new venue for writers. Some writers work for private clients who may not have the skills or time to write their own articles. These assignments are often published on the clients' websites. Businesses have emerged in recent years whose main function is to provide content for their own sites as well as supply content to other sites. They obtain the content from a pool of freelance writers. Writers can choose to work full-time or part-time from the comfort of their homes.
