But I Have No Experience!

Online jobs almost always involve some reading and writing and viewing. Can you send an email? Do you do Facebook? Do you shop online? Have you watched Youtube? If you do any one of these things, then you already have enough skills to start to making money online.

  1. About Paid surveys.

People from over 100 countries are being paid to give their opinions on every topic under the sun and then some. Research Marketing firms gather and analyse the surveys results. What they learn from us is used improve products, services and sales. Your opinion counts, why not get paid to give it.

Paid surveys are always free.

Some companies even pay you $5 just to sign on. Simply provide your email address and they will send you a welcome email. Normally included is a profile form about your age, gender, location, work, hobbies, likes etc. This information places you in specific demographics and helps determine which surveys you qualify for.

Which survey company is best?

There are literally dozens if not hundreds of survey companies. Some are aimed at the health industry, some at the music industry, most cross over many industries. It is a matter of you being in their preferred demographics. Eg; As a middle aged woman, they don’t send me any surveys about dirt bike advertising.

The Biggest Drawbacks with Paid Surveys.

Often with surveys you need to answer a lot of questions before they decide if you fit their demographic. Then often, you are unsuitable and don’t get any surveys. It can be a massive waste of time that could be better used improving your online skills with some inexpensive training courses, like typing, content writing and proofreading or WordPress for blogging.


What is BLESHA and BLASHE methods?

It is about buying and selling products online. Buy products from Amazon and resell them on ebay at a profit. Aim to buy products that you can resell for approximately  20% to 25% price increase.

To keep overheads down, buy and sell products within the same country. That way  you can take advantage of the free shipping for spends over the required amount. Your main expenses will be the initial outlays of products and Paypal  and eBay fees on transactions.

The BLESHA Method

Buy Low Ebay – Sell High Amazon.

An example is an Amazon $15 listing for a brand name face cream that can sell for up to $45 on ebay. If you can work towards the cheaper bulk buys, whole sales, closeouts and overstocks your profits can add up quickly.

The BLASHE Method

Buy Low Amazon Sell High Ebay.

Yes it works in reverse too, but be prepared to invest your time to find the cheapest prices. Also check the listings for Bulk Buys and Wholesale Purchases to resell at a profit..Search the Amazon bestseller lists. 

The main drawback to this kind of online work is the cash outlay. But if you start small and have the patience to build it up, it can be a fun and exciting way to work online. There is always the element of risk because of your upfront costs. For a detailed training on the BLESHA method get this book, How to Buy Low on eBay and Sell High on Amazon (B.L.e.S.H.a.) .

The author, an eBay PowerSeller and award-winning Amazon merchant, shows you the exact steps he uses to find undervalued merchandise on eBay and then resell it for big profits (up to 125% ROI!).


What other online jobs suit people with no experience?

Here is a cool idea! Create your own online job with a website. You may have no experience working online, but I bet you have experience in many other areas. You might be a camping enthusiast or a gamer or a rare parrot breeder. What skills do you already have that you can share with other people through your own website?

    I keep seeing articles about pay surveys but it seems more like office work but just being at home with lower than minimum wage. I think I’ll stick to developing my website at the moment. Whether I can make some profit out of it or not, I just enjoy being able to share what’s me and what is inside me than just chasing dollars. But that’s just me.

    I’ve tried surveying some time ago. It’s fine if you want to make bucks online. But the thing is that it takes some time if you want to make decent money. Sometimes it can be boring if you’re not patient enough
    About BLESHA i haven’t heard before, so it’s quite new to me. But affiliate marketing is a great way.

      BLESHA is great if you like to own a bit of stock. I find that the storage and handling can get a cumbersome. Affiliate marketing avoids those issues.

    I’ve been fascinated on how individuals make money buying and selling in eBay or Amazon. As I pass by store sales offerings and closeout items, it makes me wish I had more knowledge about the industry. I can see myself overpaying because I failed to realize the sale price is not the best price. It’s just an item that may have been marked down to something reasonable or to be competitive with others selling the same item.

      personally I like affiate marketing. The seller fees on eBay are very high too so your profit margin is really compromised.

    Hi there Janelle,

    This is a very interesting read especially the concept of BLESHA and BLASHE. I am sure this is a viable method if you have space to keep stocks, but there’s still a risk of overloading with stuff if you can’t sell it off.

    To have a less hassle business, I much rather do affiliate marketing. Work with a good merchant and refer customers to their sites. I think this is a much better way for beginners to start an online business.

    At least, that’s what works for me.

    Good article and some useful info, though I must say I’m very doubtful about doing the surveys. I did not work for me. It takes a lot of time and the earnings are too small.

    But I really like your info about affiliate marketing. I think it’s a great way to earn money online, but you need some education to learn how to do it right. I saw the Wealthy Affiliate banner on your website. That’s great. I think they are great and it’s the best place to learn Affiliate Marketing.

      Hi, yes I think surveys are really only helpful to get you used to being online a lot. It’s a good way to test and build your basic skills. There are better more lasting ways to make money on line though.
