Work from Home in Jamaica

by Nikkya

Question about: Working Online from Home In Jamaica

Hello. I was born and grown in Jamaica. I've always wanted to work from home but still haven't gotten a real legitimate job as yet.

I'm interested in text chat jobs now as I know some of them would allow me to work from my phone which would be more convenient for me at the moment (As soon as I get more resources then I would be open to me options).

I'm just asking for some great opportunities that I could do to start earning some extra cash.

I know it won't be easy but I'm willing to sacrifice the time to make it work. I await your response very soon. Thank you!

Hi Nikkya,

Thanks for asking! I'm smiling as I respond to you as I'd say that this is just perfect timing my friend :-)

Why? Because, although, I've been working online for over 12 years, I've just transitioned to full time!

But anyways, I must commend you on your interest. You see, the internet has changed the world in so many ways, and one of them is to allow us to work from home, doing what we really want to do.

You asked about opportunities though but I must caution you! You see, just like the real 'offline' world, the internet is also full of trickery and the repercussions are perhaps even worse online, as many times the perpetrators don't even leave a trace!

I am saying that to say this, don't just jump on any so called 'new', 'revolutionary', 'ground breaking', 'simple' or 'easy' money making opportunities you see and hear of, most of them are shady.

It's sad to say that to you but It's true, been there, done that! I've lost lots of money on so called easy online jobs, including chats, surveys, posting.

You see, just like the offline world, it takes real time and effort to work online, the only difference is perhaps the convenience.

What Opportunities Are Available Online

The list is lengthy, but some of the most popular ones includes..

  • Virtual Assistant
  • Medical Transcriptionist
  • Translator
  • Web Developer
  • Travel Agent
  • Freelance Writer
  • Social Media Manager
  • Data Entry
  • Surveys

And then there are...

  • Bloggers,
  • Vloggers (eg on YouTube) &
  • Affiliate Partners
  • Affiliate Aggregators and those that allows you to sell your own service/ products, eg. Fiverr, Clickbank etc.

If you Google, you'll likely find an even longer list.

From my over 12 years internet business experience though, the best and most sustainable way to earn online, is by....


I hope I didn't surprise you.

You see, your own website business creates a hub for you to get traffic (people) and then monetize (make money) that traffic by whatever way you choose, whether its simply by ads, like Google Adsense, ebook sales, membership, referral, or selling your own services.

That's what I've been doing with this my website, and it works like a charm.

I hope this helps!
