9 Chat Agent Jobs You Can Do From Home

9 Chat Agent Jobs You Can Do From Home By Holly Reisem Hanna

Back when I was in college, I worked for a telemarketing company. While the gig itself was flexible with it’s hours and it paid well, it totally exhausted me. More often than not, people did not want to converse on the phone (which I totally get), so I would have to deal with their anger, irritation, and lots of hang ups. Over time I dreaded going in to work. After college, I worked for Medicaid doing prior authorization for nursing visits and home medical equipment. Again I was on the phone for long periods of time dealing with disgruntled providers — no fun!

While a lot of work at home jobs are phone-based, the Internet has opened up a new breed of customer service that does not require being on the phone. In fact, live customer service chat is becoming more and more popular everyday. Some of these chat positions do require background knowledge of a specific area, and many of them do require you to type a certain number of words per minute, so make sure you read all of the criteria before applying.

If you want to work from home as a chat agent, here are 9 companies to check out.

Nature Unleashed: Unprecedented Support for Brand Partners

Nature UnleashedThanks to Nature Unleashed for sponsoring today’s post.

For Joe, Darren, and Kimberly – Cofounders of Nature Unleashed, it isn’t enough to say they want to help people create a path toward financial fulfillment, they are intent on living that promise every day in their approach to direct sales and in the commitments they make to their Brand Partners.

According to Joe DeSantis, CEO of Nature Unleashed, the team knew right away that direct sales was the channel for bringing the Anolyte product line to market. The direct sales model allows for the development of relationships and the sharing of stories and experiences, a driving factor in how people learn about this type of product.

The Nature Unleashed Approach to Direct Sales

The philosophy behind the Nature Unleashed direct sales approach was developed after a lot of discussion around not only the compensation structure of the program, but also the interaction and support of Brand Partners. From the beginning, the team felt Nature Unleashed would not be a company that pays for just recruiting. Instead, product sales drive the revenue model. (more…)

Balancing Work and Life When Work is Your Life

Balancing Work and Life When Work is Your LifeBy Deborah Sweeney

Every working professional has been striving to find the perfect balance between work and life since the beginning of time. We need to work to sustain our lifestyles, and we need to indulge in our personal lives to have enough energy for work- it’s a tricky balance to maintain. But what about those of us that actually work from our own homes? It’s harder to draw a line between professional and personal when your “office” is mere feet from the play room that’s just begging to be picked up. If you find yourself constantly asking, “Where do I draw the line?”

Try out these four tips to separate your personal and professional lives, while maintaining a successful at-home business:

Schedule down time.

If you’re like me, you could go, go, go from sunrise to sundown without so much as taking five minutes to read the paper or enjoy a meal sitting down (so seems to be the case with most entrepreneurs). Though, I have found that if I keep up this schedule, within two weeks or so I’ll feel as if I’ve hit a brick wall. I become exhausted and scattered with little warning. (more…)

Tips To Becoming A Successful Freelance Writer

Tips To Becoming A Successful Freelance WriterBy Gary Dek

So you like to write, and you’ve been hearing so much about people quitting their day jobs and making a living off of freelancing. Why can’t you be one as well? You already know you can write and that you love doing it, so what’s stopping you?

Truth to be told, there’s nothing to stop you from taking the plunge. You can even make the transition slowly – first doing it on the side before ditching your day job. However, what you need to hedge against is that when you do decide to go the freelance writing route, you are equipped to become a successful freelance writer.

Just like any career, there are certain considerations and industry practices that you need to know. Here are some of the best tips to becoming a freelance writer.

Determine if the freelance writing life is right for you.

Freelance writers are often perceived as “living the life”. They answer to no one but themselves, control their time, and work whenever they want to.

To a certain degree, this is accurate but just because you’re a freelancer doesn’t mean you don’t need to be disciplined, organized, and follow a routine. The best freelance writers have very strong self-control. They treat the time between 9 and 5 as their work hours and ignore the plethora of distraction present at home. (more…)
