This is a great way to start your work-at-home journey. You do not need any particular expertise to get started as a Website Tester. You will need to have a basic idea about navigating around websites and testing their functionality.

The equipment you will need for this role is a webcam and a microphone. You will have to speak out your thoughts about the test after the test is done. This could be a good beginner level job with no prior experience.

You can join companies like ICUC, LiveWorld, The Social Element (formerly Emoderation), ModSquad, Crisp Thinking. I see many work-at-home enthusiasts going for moderation jobs as their first job.


Online Researcher

You can also become an online researcher if you want to start with something substantial. This role does not require any expertise but a very keen eye to search for data online and a lot of patience.

Different companies have different role descriptions, but the primary responsibility is to search, collect data online and answer user questions. The companies that recruit online researchers are Wonder, Experts123, JustAnswer.

If you are confused where to start when working from home, mystery shopping gigs could be a right place. Mystery shopping is a delightful work-at-home job you can start with.

The Micro Tasks that you can do from home are TaskRabbit, Field Agent, Amazon MTurk, Clickworker.

These micro jobs do not need any expertise, and they are an excellent starting point for your work-at-home journey.

And for a limited time when you sign up and complete your first 100 rides, you can earn a bonus of $300 with Lyft. That’s a nice perk to get started!
