Can You Make Money At Home Stuffing Envelopes

Nov 28, 2007
Have you seen the ads to work from home stuffing envelopes and wondered if these ads can assist you in giving you a part-time income where you can stay at home with your kids?

Unfortunately these offers first ask you to pay for a packet, then you'll be paying for processing fees, plus you'll only make money IF the person responds to the lead or sales offer in the envelope. Some of these work at home stuffing envelope programs actually only include a letter telling you to run similar ads telling others how they can make money stuffing envelopes! That is a pyramid scheme. Basically you get that letter to use and the ad, but could you really live that way ripping off another person?

The FTC has gone after many of these companies for swindling people so they are on to these work from home stuffing envelopes offers that are all over the net. We all dream of working at home,not being subject to the man and having a schedule that lets us be with family , take vacations at will and run errands easily.

If you already bought one of these programs, see if it's within 30 days since purchase as you can call your credit card company or do a refund with some payment processors. Don't let them resell you something else or offer coaching either.

Yes, there are legitimate ways to make money at home and these can be setting up a blog for free at blogger and putting up some ads for amazon, selling on ebay or selling information you compile about something you love like how to blacktop your driveway, create crafts projects etc.

Look at your interests and hobbies to try to find something that is not in the internet marketing field as this is quite competitive. Do you know how to write a good resume? You can also sell as service like that on scriptlance or craigslist. There are other services you can offer such as copywriting or posting on forums for someone doing a bit of their grunt work.

There are instant businesses where you can sell products and put up a paypal button and these are popular purchases as we live in an instant delivery culture and also one where environmental concerns of saving paper are valued. Please do your homework and don't lay out money for something that looks questionable and is too good to be true such as taking surveys or working at home stuffing envelopes. If it seems like it's no work and only residual income, you are kidding yourself and being scammed.

A legitimate business will involve product creation (or outsourcing of it) , marketing it via offline and online methods as well as perhaps having resellers or affiliates and picking a popular interest that fills a need. Marketing usually needs constant maintenance though at a certain point it can be passive income if you have either a newsletter where you mention
useful products and services or you through viral marketing get lots of traffic to your site.
