1. Affiliate Marketing
This is a powerful revenue sharing concept, which enables you to make money without having to create your own product. Instead, you select a product of another online company and start promoting it. Once you deliver your affiliate company a new customer, who buys that product or service, you get paid a percentage of the products cost.
The company will take care of all the other procedures, such as customer service and delivery, enabling you to focus on advertising. It is possible to start with this work from home opportunity without an investment, since there are free marketing strategies to build your business and make sales.
2. Freelance Writer
Many internet businesses need articles, which help them to get more exposure and clients. Since they can’t produce the required amount of articles alone, they outsource this service from article writers. You don’t have to be an experienced writer already, since there are online article writing eBooks, which teach you this skill, step-by-step. In order to find your first clients more easily, start from one of the specialized freelance article writing sites, like ScriptLance or Elance.
Start writing about a topic or a hobby that you really like. Use simple blogging platforms such as Blogger or WordPress to create and manage your blog. It is important to write a lot of content, in order to get more readers and visitors to your site. Track the amount of visitors by using a free software called Google Analytics.
Once your blog gets regularly at least 1000 visitors a month, it becomes profitable to set up Google AdSense advertisements on your site. Whenever a visitor clicks on one of the advertisements, you get paid a small amount of money, since you have helped somebody to advertise their service on your site. The second way to monetize your blog is to promote different products as an affiliate.
4. Online Trading
Wall Street isn’t exactly on the average Americans love list these days, and with good reason. Those guys just make money. And if they can do it standing around on a floor in New York City, you know you can do it at home, with your computer, just as well. Sites like Scottrade and E-trade were the first ones to allow folks to trade online easily and cheaply enough that you could make good money doing it, but nowadays any broker will allow you 24-hour access to your accounts online. Besides, “day trader” still has a cool ring to it when people ask you what you do, even 10 years after the bubble burst on the net.
Making money online is also about self-confidence and the ability to focus on your goals. Instead of concentrating on your failures and unsuccessful ventures, try to pay your attention on solving problems and improving your business.
