In short, the best psychic jobs are your own freelancing gigs. Here are the main avenues to evaluate before deciding how best to offer your psychic services to the paying public.
Before reading through my list of resources for freelancing psychics, I’m assuming you have a strong degree of psychic ability and you wish to start advising at a professional level.
My help page for finding psychic jobs and taking up freelancing opportunities is in two parts.
Before you dive into parts one and two it is worth thinking about what is most suitable for your situation and personality.
Let me explain the pros on cons of both avenues.
You are either going to provide paid psychic readings independently (freelancing), as I do now, or you will provide paid readings to the client base of an existing network (psychic jobs), as I used to do.
The downside is money. It can be a bit disheartening when you provide great psychic advice and the client is happily paying $5 per minute say. Depending on the network you work with, of that you can expect to receive $1 per minute. The best rates I’ve seen are 40% and 50% of your charge out rate.
When I worked for a big international psychic telephone line the rate to clients was $4 per min and I would receive $1 per minute. Then you pay your taxes too! But I was very happy with those arrangements because I had been in business before and I knew the true costs of marketing. I had many happy and lucrative years working from home with just a laptop and phone line. But I’ve met some naïve psychics who just can not get their head around being paid $1 out of every $5 charged to the client. If you are new to this game, don't get hung up on that.
The upside is lots of clients are waiting for you. The top networks are so big, so well established, and have such deep marketing pockets, that there are always plenty of clients to go around for good evidential psychics. They run affiliate marketing programs which reward other websites (like mine) very well for exposing the network to their website’s visitors. So, let’s say you joined the Kasamba Network. When logged on you could be exposed to millions of people across the world in a single day via the advertising paid for by Kasamba’s corporate body.
If you are just starting out and want the quickest way to a home based income as a psychic, join a good company like the ones I list below. I’m going to show you how to do that In Part 1. And I’m going to show you exactly how “I” did it before I turned freelance.
The downside is you must find your own clients. If you have no existing clients at present you will need to sell your services in a way that is not expensive but will, slowly but surely, build you a happy group of paying clients you can depend on (as they will depend on you for great psychic advice). This will take time and money, unless you already have your platform set up and have instant exposure and influence in your marketplace.
The upside is money. The best thing about psychic freelancing is you get to keep all of the money you charge. (Less the costs of marketing, and services such as payment processing and communication systems, and taxes of course).
I’m going to show you how to do that in Part 2. In fact, I’m going to show you exactly how “I” do it now!
(This is how “I” did it before I turned freelance)

Caveat Emptor - A word of warning. You may be tempted to promote your self on Keen’s psychic listings. They use a bid system to get on their leading pages.
