Is Envelope Stuffing a Good Opportunity?


People who spend a lot of time trying to find something to do from home, whether for a little extra money or to make a full time income, have probably heard about envelope stuffing. If you have heard of this type of job, you may have also heard that these types of jobs are pretty much always a scam. However, you may also wonder if that is really true and whether you can really earn a legitimate income in this manner. It is important to consider how this type of job works and determine if it is right for you.

When you reply to an ad that says you can work from home by stuffing envelopes, you are often required to pay a fee. A lot of people are afraid to pay a fee for fear of being scammed. This is one of the reasons many people tend to shy away from envelope stuffing. If you donít want to put your money out there, then donít take part in the opportunity. If you look around for a little longer, you are bound to find something else eventually.

Once you have paid your fee for envelope stuffing information, though, you will receive that information from the company. This is why this type of job isnít really a scam. You will receive the information you asked for. How you use it is what makes many people question the legitimacy of this type of opportunity. While some people feel the way this information is used is a scam, others think it is a fair way to make money. In the end, the choice is yours.

The information you receive from the envelope stuffing company will tell you how to post advertisements for stuffing envelopes, just like the one you answered. In the same way, you will ask people to send you money for the opportunity. When they send you the money, you will stuff an envelope with the same information you received. Therefore, you will be telling others how to do the same thing you did. Of course, you are stuffing envelopes so you are doing exactly what the job promised.

Because envelope stuffing is a form of pyramid scheme, many people do feel it isnít a legitimate opportunity. However, the question remains whether it is a good opportunity. The real answer lies in whether or not you think you can make money at this. In order to make money from envelope stuffing, you will need to know how to advertise well. The bottom line is you will rely on people replying to your ad and sending you money to make money. If few people reply and even fewer send you money, you canít make money.

In the end, whether envelope stuffing is a scam is still undetermined. However, whether it is a good opportunity will depend almost entirely on luck. You will need to do the work to market your opportunity so you can increase the likelihood of people responding. However, the fact remains that if no one replies to you, you wonít be able to make money on the opportunity at all. For many people, this means that stuffing envelopes is not the best opportunity, but it can provide you with some form of income.
