LiveOps is Better than Retail for Seasonal Work

November 16, 2015

Where does time go?! It seems like kids were heading back-to-school yesterday and now the holiday season is in full swing. Everywhere you go, from stores to websites, it seems like it’s already December.

If your kids are anything like mine, their holiday wish lists are taking shape. And those lists can get expensive, especially as the kids get older. What’s your plan to make the holidays everything your family wishes for, and more? It may involve you wishing for some extra cash.

At this busy time of year, retail stores are hiring. There are certainly benefits to retail work, like discounts. But are the hours flexible enough? The holidays amplify busy-ness to dizzying heights, with parties, performances, recitals and holiday traditions to fit in around school and your regular busy schedule. And, unfortunately, not every shopper is in the best holiday spirits—especially as the calendar moves through December—and that can put a damper on your holiday spirit.

But retail work is not the only option. This year, you can skip that seasonal retail work and still make some money to help with holiday expenses. Become a work from home call center agent with LiveOps and make money from home.

You read that right—make money working from home.

LiveOps is actively sourcing independent contractors to provide virtual contact center services. We work with nationally-recognized companies who are looking for people with the passion and skills to dazzle and delight their customers. Being a LiveOps work from home call center agent has some big positives:

  • You set your schedule and work when it is convenient for you, so you can still fit in all the holiday activities that make the season special.
  • Take calls from the comfort of your own home office, instead of commuting in holiday traffic.
  • Build on your prior work experience and even expand your horizons with new skills.
  • Help people in a meaningful way, resolving issues and helping to make their holiday season merry and bright.
  • Bring home some extra money to help make those holiday wishes a reality.
  • Stay healthier, because you aren’t touching things thousands of other people are touching while cold and flu season is in full swing.
  • Enjoy the confidence and independence that come with being your own boss.

Working from home also brings you savings—so more of the money you earn can go to holiday gifts or trips:

  • Save time (and money!), because you aren’t driving back and forth to a store or office.
  • Save more time, because you aren’t dropping kids off at daycare—work when they are in school, in bed or when someone else is home to watch them.
  • Save money, because you aren’t grabbing a quick bite to eat on your short break.
  • Save more money, because you aren’t buying professional clothing or a uniform or paying to clean it.

LiveOps offers a robust certification program, LiveOps University, to help you get comfortable with the tools, clients, procedures and other elements of running your business. Other independent agents are available to help, support and cheer you on. And opportunities are available in a variety of areas, including sales, customer service, healthcare services, and life  insurance sales.

It’s the best of all worlds: working from home, earning extra money and fitting work around your family’s schedule. And contact center work isn’t limited to seasonal holiday times—it’s something you can do year-round. And keep the extra money rolling in well beyond the holidays.
