    Texting My Way To A Richer Life

    I have a great new job I can do from anywhere, that's fun, exciting, and pays really well, and I just can't keep it to myself anymore.

    I work from my computer, searching the web for great answers to interesting and varied questions with the help of specialized search tools, and have no set schedule or hours, which is great with kids, homeschooling, and running a busy house. Heck, with the laptop, I can do it from anywhere!

    Just last week, I was making money while watching the kids play in the park.

    I'm a ChaCha guide, and I make 10-20 cents for every question I answer from people who text one in by dialing 242242 from their mobile phones. Have unlimited texting on your phone and want to give it a try? Go for it, ask your guide anything, it's free! Answers usually come back within 4 minutes. Want a joke, or just to chat, text to ChaCha, and get a different guide every time, but still have a decent conversation! Your answers will even have a link to the site where the answer was found, if you want to read more about it!

    Sometimes, I'll use ChaCha to teach my kids something an infoseeker has asked about, so it even helps with our homeschooling! I can take breaks whenever I want, for however long I want, so this is easy too. I can go for days without working a lick, but I wouldn't want to, it's too much fun!

    I'm making better money being a guide than I have at any of the other things I've done online, and at a quicker pace also. I can get paid whenever I want to my own use-it-anywhere debit card, or just monthly as a direct deposit to my bank account, whichever I prefer. Most questions take me under two minutes to answer, and that adds up really quickly. ChaCha is a great way to prove true the old saying "If you take care of the nickles and dimes, the dollars will take care of themselves", that's for sure. *chuckle*

    To become a guide, you simply sign up online, learn a little from their online resources, pass their easy simulator test, and then you're ready to go. Work as much or as little as you want. Complete 200 or more answers in a week with 95% accuracy (SO easy!), and your pay raises to 20 cents a question from 10 or 15 cents!

    There's a lot of fun in being a guide, and it's not all in just answering the questions. There are positions for voice transcribers (type what you hear), and expediters (categorize the question and sent it to the guide). There's also a great forum for the members to chat and share information and tips, an area where you can have your own ChaCha blog, and more! I know some moms (with toddlers even!) who have quit their jobs because ChaCha pays them more than their other employment did!

    ChaCha guides are specially trained to be able to find the answers to any and all questions. What other search engine has real people, with real feelings, who take real bathroom breaks?

    Are you curious, professional, and Internet-savvy? Do you enjoy learning new things, sharing your knowledge with others, and being part of a fun, diverse community?

    ChaCha could be your ideal job too!

    On behalf of ChaCha HQ & all 15,000+ guides, you are hereby formally invited to earn extra cash having fun!

    To sign up, visit http://www.chacha.com, and when it asks for who sent you, type (cut and paste somehow doesn't count the referral) my email address into the box. That's

    Heck, I love ya so much, join up now and get approved as a guide on my team, and I'll send you all my best hints and tips to get you started on the right track, with the best possible speed and accuracy rating!

    Do the ChaCha!

    ...That seems remarkably like a form letter post.

    I'm not entirely certain that this is better than no posting at all.

    I have a friend in KC who just took her test but wants a different job on chacha than you do, can't remember the name but the person who takes the initial call and rewords it and then sends it to the guides.
    So how are you doing???

    Hmmm, I guess it was a little businessey, but I wrote it all myself, and I AM really excited about being a guide! *grin* I don't think any other guide team member offers the same perks I do either. I'm passionate about having my team truly succeed.

    Faith, your friend is testing to be a voice transcriber. Remember when I said you could call your question in, and someone would listen to it, then type it out so a guide could answer it? That's what she's doing. It's a very valuable part of the system. There are also expediters, guides, generalists, and specialists. Something available for everyone, really, no matter what your skills or interests are. Heck, you don't even need to type fast, I only type about 22 WPM! *chuckle*
