Regardless if you work online as a freelancer, a contractor or an employee, or even if you work a job outside of your home, it is always a good idea to keep a few options available at all times for extra cash. Having the option to work when you want for online companies allows you to supplement unexpected expenses, have some extra spending cash or pay off debt faster.
First step toward supplying your bank with additional income sources is to secure 2-3 online gigs.
The second step is to keep them warm.
When I say warm, I mean that you stay active and up to date with the company.
I have made the mistake of not returning to some pretty good online extra money earning jobs and then either lost my account status or I fell way behind on policy updates and expectations of the company.
