LivePerson is a unique service that matches people who have questions to the people who are qualified to answer them. -LivePerson.com
LivePerson.com is a home based way to earn extra money using your own expertise. I came across LivePerson while browsing one of my newest favorite blogs: RealWaystoEarnMoneyOnline.com. LivePerson is a website where people who are looking for answers from experienced people can turn. Experts in all ranges of subjects, from gardening to virtual call center assistance to even psychic readings are available at LivePerson.com. Using your knowledge, you can become an expert at LivePerson and chat, talk or email with clients for a rate set by you!
How to Get Started at LivePerson
First, decide what area you are an expert. If you are working from home, you likely already have an expertise about getting started in the world of home based work. Or, is it possible the 5 children you have had has made you an expert mom? Whatever your expertise, there just may be someone needing your help.
Once you acknowledge your own expertise, you can register an account at LivePerson. Simply share with potential clients a little information about yourself and explain what qualifies you to be an expert.
Then, you will need to set your rate. I find the best way to determine a good rate for yourself is to check what other similar experts are charging. You want to be competitive, but don’t sell yourself short.
Finally, it is a good idea to download the tools needed to communicate with paying LivePerson customers. It is a quick and easy download and it will allow you to choose when you are available, as well as keep your personal contact information private.

What Others are Saying About LivePerson
Unfortunately it seems most of LivePerson.com’s business comes from the psychic readings given. Therefore, the internet is filled with negative feedback of false readings by psychics at LivePerson, such as TruthSeeker at ComplaintsBoard.com who paid $174 to a LivePerson agent with the promise she would find her true love within 21 days. When Mr. Right did not come into her life, she turned to online boards to expose the LivePerson Psychic Expert. Similar complaints are all over the web.
Reading through forums at workplacelikehome.com and wahm.com led me to understand that most people do not see much activity from the site, but I did not read of any complaints.
My Two-Cents on LivePerson
While the fees at LivePerson seem really high, what do you have to lose? Most likely the information you have built is something you tell friends and family for free. So, why not be available, while browsing the web, in case someone is willing to pay you for your help! While you will not likely be able to depend on LivePerson for an income, it may be a nice way to make some extra cash once in a while!

Interested in this concept but don’t like the high fees? Check out: Ether.com, where the fee is a flat 15%. However, I do not believe they have an option for Chat.
