Genuine Work From Home Jobs
These are genuine work from home jobs and can have you doing anything from online tutoring, internet research, freelance writing, transcription services, website design, customer service or sales type roles.
None of these are scams, and while some do require you to be self-employed, none are from multilevel marketing. You should be able to scam from a mile away. The rule of thumb; if it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is. Never pay to work.
Flexibility is key to working from home. If you do decide on the freelance route, then you may find combining jobs more worthwhile, so having multiple jobs on the go at the same time.
If you’d prefer to be a employee working from home, then you’ll have a greater chance of finding a role if you can work a few hours during the day or even one day a month in an office.
Regardless of it you’re freelance or a employee, you’ll still need the same basic equipment to work from home, like a high-speed internet connection, mobile phone, computer, printer and basic office software.
If you’re looking to start a job from home then my top 5 tips are:
1. Look for a need in your chosen market.
Is there a gap in the market? Could you do something better? Make a list of the things that you dislike about your competitor and make sure you do them better!
2. Build a website.
This is easier than it sounds!
Use a system like WordPress that has thousands of YouTube videos that walkthrough you step by step how to build it.
You don’t need to buy a website theme straight away. Use a free one and see how you go.
You do need a URL and a hosting package though. They are a lot cheaper if you use an external company like TSO.
You can buy your domain name from them too.
Try to think of a name that is as close to your business as possible. Have a quick Google to check that no one has it as well. Remember to check social media feeds as well.
You can check and purchase domains easily using a site like TSO*, who we buy ALL our domains from.
TSO also offer web hosting. You want a company that you can trust as they are going to have access to your website.
We’ve used many over the years but TSO Host* are a good place to start when you need your online store hosting*. You get 10% with TSO Host by using our code S4SM10%OFF.
3. Use search engines to grow your business.
If you feel like you need help to the right work life balance or to grow your business than have a look at People Per Hour* or Fiverr*.
Time is money. Think about what you can achieve if you had some help.
4. Make yourself the expert.
Whatever you’re doing make sure you’re the go to person. Hang around in Facebook groups or on Twitter and answer people’s questions on your niche.
Write blog posts for sites that are in your industry so your name gets out. Write how-tos or tip based blog posts or videos to show people that you know what you’re talking about.
5. Set up an email list early on.
Having an email list means that you always have people to read your blogs or an audience that are interested in what you are doing.
We use Mailerlite* as they have great customer service and easy to build email templates. (Remember to check the ISO website for GDPR guidelines.)
Then depending on which business below you decide to do will come with a few more costs.
If you’re just looking to top up your income, then sites like TopCashBack*, Quidco* and Swagbucks* are a good place to start.
So here are 101 genuine and legitimate work from home jobs that you can do in the evening or around the kids. (To find out where these jobs are advertised, keep reading.)

How To Find Genuine Work From Home Jobs
To start, think of this job search as your job. However many hours you want to work should be the amount of hours you put in to finding it.
Start by letting your friends and family know you’re looking. Use social media, especially Facebook and Linkedin to let everyone know the kinds of jobs you are looking for.
Network and really thick out the box. If there is a job you like the look of but it’s office based, think of a way you can pitch to that company that would work for them and you. Could you do the job at home in less time? Would they get flexible working and would it work for their business?
Contact everyone you’ve ever worked with. You’ll be surprised the leads it can generate.
Where To Search For Work From Home Jobs
No matter the position, the best places to start are the online job sites.
Use words like “work from home”, “freelance” and “flexible working.” The Guardian, Monster, Jobsite, Indeed, WorkingMums all have new jobs posted daily.
Have a look at the freelance sites like People Per Hour*, Fiverr* and Upwork. Even if these sites just help while you find a more permanent role. They do take a percentage, so make sure you quote enough to the buyer.
Ignore words like “real work from home jobs” and “make your money fast” as these are normally MLM roles and just aren’t worth your time. Stick with the sites that focus on employing you.
Top Tips For Staying Safe While Looking For Work From Home Jobs
If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.
- Look into every listing and Google the company to get a feel of them. Regardless of what you’re doing for them, freelance or as a employee, you need to know what they are like.
- Get payment sorted first. Agree a price or salary and expectations from the get go.
- There are lots of scams out there, some of which are personalised and sound quite legitimate. Do your home work.
- Ignore roles that guarantee you loads of money within six months or that will help you get rich fast from home. They don’t exist and it is a hard slog sometimes, so be prepared.
- Do not send money! Legitimate employers don’t charge you to get started. Don’t buy any kits or software.
