We have already established that you can really make money by working from home. Earnings may vary depending on which business ideas you decided to delve into and how much time and effort are you really willing to make – in other words, it’ll depend on how passionate are you with this new business venture.
There are apparent advantages of working from home, not to mention that there’s also a big possibility that you’ll be earning more than you would working on an 8 to 5-hour job. Deciding to work at home – whether you’re a stay at home mom, just got laid out, or just quit from the workforce – may be the best decision you’re going to make in your life.
And although, you may earn yourself a couple of unsolicited advice from concerned individuals or doubtful look from families or friends as to why you don’t have a ‘real’ job – rest assured that you pretty much get the last laugh on this one. ‘Cuz really, you can make a living by working from home!
Working as a freelancer online can be a good start. You basically have a zero start up cost; you simply join a freelancing site and start applying for job based on your set of skills.
The good thing about freelancing is that you get to choose which job are you most interested in, you don’t get to experience that feeling of getting ‘stuck’ at something that drains you because most contracts are short term.
You are basically free to choose which job or people are you willing and most comfortable to work with. You also get to decide how many hours are you willing to work in a day or in a week – which is perfect for stay at home moms or dads with kids (I know kids are a handful sometimes!)
And although the money you will be earning will depend on the hours you are working or job contracts landed, it’s not bad considering you practically didn’t shell out any dollars to start with. This can be a good idea for stay at home moms or stay at home dads – because time can be really flexible.
You can actually save up from your earnings working as a freelancer and then later invest in other home business ideas. And besides, who knows, freelancing online could be the perfect business idea for your given circumstances.
You have probably heard of this a million times before – affiliate marketing – you make money online by promoting one business’ products or services. Generally the publisher (you) earns a commission whenever someone follows a link on your blog or website to another site and then sign up or bought products or services.
This business idea requires that you maintain a blog or website where, for instance, you can talk about gardening or baking and then suggest and or promote related affiliate products that you are connected with. You can target specific niche depending on your blog or website’s theme.
It may take time before you can get your website going and needs work to get more traffic and ideally Google page ranking, but once you get the hang of it affiliate marketing can really bring you serious money.
This works wonderfully for those who already own a blog or a website (of course you can always start one for this purpose). Advertisers either pays for the ad space or the number of clicks or conversion their ads received through your site.
There is a considerable traffic generated by those who regularly blogs or update their website – high traffic as well as other considerations such as page rank, page authority and others are being considered by the advertisers.
Unlike in affiliate marketing, there is no need to promote the product and or services. Ads can simply stay on your blog or website visually (generally on the header or sidebar) and you just go about your thing as usual engaging with your readers and ideally increasing your traffic.
