...Making Money Online Is Possible

But, It's Not Easy, and It's Not For Everybody... 

When you get laid-off, you need to start by doing the steps in this article:

What To Do When You are Suddenly Laid-Off 

  • File for unemployment - immediately!
  • Update your resume and get it out there.
  • Actively look for a new job. 
  • Review your monthly bills. 
  • Cut unnecessary expenses and save money wherever possible.

You found this site by researching unemployment on the internet, and I am sure you have seen tons of ads that promise quick riches, instant income, or to otherwise make money online.

Please, I am begging you - Stay Away From These Sites!! 

If it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is.

Many of these sites are simply scams that promise things that they can't deliver, and prey on your hopes and dreams, and prey on your unfortunate circumstances having just lost your job.

They'll promise you instant access to a site that will tell you all about how to make money online, how easy it is - "Just post a few links on Google, and the money will start rolling in!"

Then, once they've got you hooked, they ask for your credit card information to pay for "Shipping and Handling" for the DVD or book they're sending you.

Read the fine print!

If you can find it, that is.  What they don't tell you, or they hide so far deep down in the fine print, is that they will bill you immediately for $1.99 shipping and handling, will bill you $79.99 or more in 10-15 days for the 'monthly subscription' to the service, and then bill you AGAIN in 15 days from that, for another $79.99 for the 'monthly subscription. 

The internet is FULL of these scams, and the authorities and the search engines like Google are starting to take action with prosecution and lawsuits.  Read about it here:

(There's lots of good info in those pages about all kinds of scams you should be aware of!)

Even if you still decide to try it, there are some things you need to know about trying to make money online:

1. Its not for everybody.

2.  You still need a job.  Making enough money online to support yourself and/or your family is not going to happen overnight, no matter what some website promises you.  It is not going to happen in a week.  It may not happen in a month, or even a year.  It is not fast money, and is not a viable replacement for a job, for most people. It may not happen at all.

3.  You have to know how to use a computer, and some basic-to-intermediate computer skills.  It is getting easier and easier to setup a website and do things online, but the more you know about computers, the web, and programming - the better.  That said, there are tons of free resources online to teach you all that you might need to know. 

Just make sure that you've taken care of everything else (file for unemploymentupdate your resumejob-huntingcut expenses) before you even think about embarking on the journey to make money online.
