How Can I Make Money From Home Online?
Let me just say up front, in reality, it's not for everyone. As much as some internet marketing con artists would like for you to believe that anyone can make money online, I simply don't believe that to be the case. Why? Because not everyone has the computer skills needed to make it happen. Not everyone has the language skills to make it happen. Not everyone can follow directions.
However, if you've got basic computer skills, a decent grasp on the English language (more on why English in another post), and can follow directions, then sure, you can make money from home online. But how, exactly, do you do it? How does someone get started?
Well, let me tell you how I got started. There are surely different ways to get started making money online, and I'm always exploring new ways myself. In fact, the way I got started is no longer the way I make money online. But, it was instrumental in me getting my feet wet, learning the ropes, and most importantly (don't miss this) meeting new people and learning to network. If there is one single thing that has been responsible for my success and a majority of the work I've done online, it's networking. But more on that another time. First, we have to get you started.
In my opinion and based on my experience, one of the easiest and quickest ways to make some money online is writing articles. Yes, that's right. Writing online articles for other people can make you some decent, quick cash. Many things you will read about require time to build up your Google ranking, build up traffic, etc., but writing articles can get you into the black in less than a week.
Where do you find people willing to pay for these articles? Well, quite frankly, they're everywhere. If you're good, you can even parlay an article writing gig or two into a full time career with only one or two clients. There are some sites that you'll need to steer clear of though, at least until you get your feet under you. Sites like Guru.com and Elance can be great, if you have a portfolio and know what you're looking for. Otherwise, you'll likely get frustrated and your bids will be undercut seemingly at every turn by foreign writers who don't write (or likely speak) English as well as a native English speaker does.
Remember what I mentioned about networking. Always stay in touch with those who are associated with the same company you are writing for - other writers, especially. To this day, I am still connected and actually interact with some of the writers I got my start with back in 2007. It can literally pay to keep in touch. You never know where your next job lead will come from!
But, let's say this is still all Greek to you. You want to get started right away. You want to earn some extra cash this month. I do have a friend who has an almost turn-key solution for you. Her name is Yuwanda Black, and she's the real deal. I have followed her blog for years and the information she presents is exactly the type of information I would share if I had the time. But she's gone even one step further. She has put together a program that will help you go from where you are today to earning an online income writing articles from the comfort of your own home. This isn't hype. You're not going to be rich. What this is, however, is real. The exact same principles and things that Yowanda will share with you are the exact same things I used to get my start online over eight years ago. Honestly, I think she's right. It really doesn't get much easier than this.
If you've ever, and I do mean ever, wanted to make money from home online and just didn't know where to begin, you owe it to yourself to check out this program. From now on, when someone asks my how they can get started doing what I do, this is where I'm going to send them. It's the real deal, folks.
