Some Overrated “Work From Home” Offers: Part 3


If you want to make some money online from home, there are quite a few opportunities out there for you to take advantage of. However, you need to be careful when selecting the best online business opportunity for you. There are plenty of programs that are perfectly legitimate, but you need to watch out for some which make exaggerated claims of potential earnings and misstate the true nature of the business that you will be involved in. Here are a few more things that you should be careful of when you search for online earning opportunities.

  • Freelance work programs

You will find a few websites that claim to offer you access to exclusive opportunities to find freelance work, as well as promise to give you highly valuable information on how to succeed as a freelancer. They often claim that it will be easy to find work and that you can earn a full time income from freelancing online right from the start.

It is definitely possible to make a living online from freelancing. Even a full time income, depending on the projects that you find and your skills. But there are no “secret databases” of freelancing opportunities. Freelance jobs, such as transcription work, article writing, programming, translation, graphic design and more can be found for free on various sites, without you needing to join a membership site and pay anywhere from $30 to $100 a month for this privilege. Just take a look at sites such as ODesk, elance and more.

As for tips and advice on how to increase your earnings, these can be found for free just by searching for information on blogs and forums. All that these sites do is to collect information from other sites and then charge you to read the same things you can find for free if only you spend a few minutes doing some research.

  • Day trading / forex

You will also find sites which claim you can make money from the markets by day trading stocks or participating in the foreign exchange (forex) market. Again, it is possible to make money this way and many people have been highly successful with it. But it is simply not as easy as a lot of sellers of guides and systems tell you. First, you will need to have access to a significant amount of risk capital if you want a shot at making more than just a few dollars a day. Then, you will also need to gain an understanding of how markets work and how you can profit from them. There are no magical systems which allow you to make guaranteed profits from the markets. Otherwise, everyone could become a millionaire in just a few weeks. Remember that while you can make money, there is also the very real possibility of losing money, especially in the beginning.

If you want to try out some strategies or systems, it is best to practice for a few weeks with play money first before you invest real funds. This will give you an idea as to whether this type of work is right for you.

Some Overrated “Work From Home” Offers


If you’re looking for a way to make money online by working from home, you will find a great deal of perfectly legitimate and profitable business opportunities that you can take part in. The amount of time, effort and investment required for each of them will vary, but if you do your research correctly and don’t let yourself get influenced by marketing hype, there are great chances that you will find something to do. But there are a few types of “work from home” offers that, while generally not being fraudulent, are often overrated. This means they are presented with unrealistic earnings projections that often don’t live up to reality. Here are a few of them:

 

  • Paid survey offers

 

Yes, it IS possible to make SOME money from paid surveys. But unlike what some of the ads say, you probably won’t be able to get anything close to a full time income from them, at least not on a regular basis. If you sign up for some paid survey panels, you will probably get only 1 or 2 survey invitations a week, maximum. These surveys usually pay about $5. So even if you’re a member of several different panels, your earnings potential isn’t that great. While it may be an attractive option to get some beer money, doing paid surveys isn’t a “business” or even a job. Just a way to get a few extra dollars that may cover the cost of your internet connection and cell phone bill, but not much more.

 

  • Network marketing

 

There are plenty of perfectly legitimate and well run network marketing opportunities out there which have been running for decades now. But you should be aware that most of the income claims that are posted on websites touting them assume that you will be going out and recruiting more and more people every month into the program and that these people that you’ve recruited will take an active part in the program and also recruit some of their friends to join up.

 

Yes, there are people who make five figures a month from network marketing. But they’re the exception and not the norm. If you want to reach such a level, you will need to make extreme efforts to get people on board and then motivate them to actually do some work when they join the program, rather than dream about the money that they will supposedly be making. This will obviously demand extra efforts from your part.

 

The most successful people in the multi level marketing field are actually members of several different programs at the same time. But if you want something small, say for a part time income, you can join just one opportunity and produce results. But in that case, investigate the product THOROUGHLY! Make sure that it’s something solid which has long term (at least a few years) potential. You don’t want to join a fad (diet products are notorious for this) that will fizzle out in a few months, leaving you to build your business again completely from scratch.

Full Time Online Business: Part 2

Full Time Online Business: Part 2


If you want to make a full time income online, there are plenty of business models to select from. Of course, it is possible to earn some decent money by providing services to others, such as doing web design, writing articles, sales copies, etc. However, there are some things that you can do to make a full time income without spending all day actually doing the services.

 

What you can do is to outsource the actual service creation to other workers that you can find on classified ads sites, freelancing sites as well as forums. If your business gets really big, you always have the option of actually getting a physical office and hiring a full time staff.

 

Here are two business types that you can start:

 

  • Web Design Agency

 

A lot of small and local businesses right now are getting online and would like to have a website. The thing is, very few business owners have the skills to create a good looking website and many of them do not want to spend the time it takes to learn how to put one together. This is where you come in.

 

All you need to do is to put together a team of a few freelancers that specialize in web design. It is always good to have people with diverse skills on board, such as one who specializes in blogs, while another one that does flash websites, etc. Basically, you would get clients to pay you for a website. Let’s say you charge $100 per site and pay the freelancer $60 for their work. You would then pocket the difference.

 

  • Digital Marketing Agency

 

Plenty of business owners are also realizing the potential that the internet has when it comes to attracting new customers. This is where you will be helping them. You can offer a complete marketing package to small businesses, which would include optimizing their website for SEO, building backlinks, creating articles and uploading them to directories, creating and managing social media pages, putting up ads and listings in business directories and classified ads sites, managing their ad campaigns on PPC and media buying platforms, etc. This can be a very profitable business model, as there are plenty of local businesses that would like to advertise online, but don’t really know how to.

 

Getting Clients

 

Remember that most of your clients aren’t really up to date on the whole internet marketing scene, so advertising on IM forums is not really the best idea. It would be better to advertise in local classified ads sites, business directories, as well as in local businesses. Doing direct mail campaigns as well as calling up local businesses can sometimes yield quite good results, although these methods of advertising are a bit more expensive and time consuming for you. However if you do great work at competitive rates, you are likely to succeed in building a full time income.

Full Time Online Business: Part 1

Full Time Online Business: Part 1


When you are building an online business that will generate a full time income, there are various things that you can do to earn some money. These things are not necessarily complicated to execute, but they will nonetheless require some more patience on your part to do properly and to yield the results that you wanted them to have.

 

So, what are some good ideas to earn full time cash on the internet? We will present them to you, but let’s start with the most simple ones.

 

Actually, what you can very well do is to take the things that you can do as part of a micro or mini online business and simply scale them up so that they can produce more revenue for you. Let’s take providing services for example:

 

There are plenty of people who do things such as writing articles and designing graphics to earn a bit of extra cash online. But it is possible to turn these activities to a full time business as well. There are two things that you will need to make this work:

 

  • Skill

 

The amount of money that clients will be willing to pay you will largely depend on how good you are at doing your job. For example, if you are an average article writer, you could find people willing to pay you $5 for a 500 word web article. But if you can truly write professional quality articles that are very informative to the users, you could find that some people are willing to pay anywhere from $20 to $50 for a simple 500 word piece to be posted on the web. Obviously you will need to work very hard to build up your skills to that level, but many have done it.

 

  • Time

 

Another thing that you would need to do would be to devote sufficient time to your online activities if you want them to make enough money for you. Consider this, if you write articles at $15 per article and you write 2 in one hour, this gives you a very respectable $30 per hour. Now if you work full time 5 days a week, you can make almost $40 000 a year by doing this.

 

If you go with the services route, then you should know that finding high paying clients will be much harder than finding some that would pay you a fraction of what you want to earn. Therefore, you will need to spend more time networking and looking for work to do than if you simply wanted to make a bit of extra cash at the end of the month.

 

But what if you do not want to do all the work yourself? There are a few things that you can do and tomorrow, we will take a look at some simple business models that you can take advantage of and get off the ground rather quickly.

Why Multiple Streams Of Income Are Important In The Online World

Why Multiple Streams Of Income Are Important In The Online World


If you’ve been reading certain guides on online business, you may have been told that in order to succeed you need to have “multiple streams of income”. Now what does this mean? And most importantly, is it actually true or is it simply a gimmick that is used by product creators to try and have you buy their guides?

Simply put, having multiple streams of income means that you are making money online through various different sources. It’s actually as simple as that. And it is also a concept that can be applied to any online money making activity, whether you are running affiliate offers, selling your own products, providing services or publishing pay per click advertisements on your site.

Now is it something that is really necessary to have? If you are running a business that is bringing you a full time income, then the answer is yes. Now why is that? So that your business can keep operating even if one of your income sources declines or dries up completely. Sure, you may think that it won’t happen to you, but if you’ve read any internet marketing forum, you will find plenty of stories about it happening to other marketers.

There are certain products or offers which are only popular during a certain time and then their popularity decreases. Think of the Acai Berry CPA offers that were all the rage about a year ago. Sure, a lot of marketers made money from them. Some made very serious amounts of cash. But a few months after it peaked, the offer started going down due to the fact that the product received some negative press due to questionable claims made by manufacturers, plus many people complaining that they were having a hard time canceling their subscription to this rebill offer.

There has also been cases where some smaller CPA or affiliate networks were having trouble paying those who run their offers. Some people were getting paid late, others ended up not getting their money at all in some cases. Obviously, if you only work with one network and they have trouble paying their affiliates, this will spell trouble for your business as well.

Organizing multiple streams of income is not difficult at all. Say if you are a CPA marketer, you simply have to work with a few different networks and run some different campaigns on each. You don’t even have to do it all at once if it would be too hard for you to manage. For example, you could run offers from network A for the first half of the month and network B for the other half.

If you are a freelancer such as a content writer or web designer, advertise your services on a few different sites and not only one. Also, work with a few different clients if possible. That way, if one of your regular clients who you’ve worked for during many months suddenly doesn’t need any work done during this month, you won’t be left scrambling to find other ones.

Getting Started In Online Writing – Part 4

Getting Started In Online Writing – Part 4


Now you have seen a few ways to find work if you want to become an online article writer. The main places where you can find work are internet marketing forums, article writing sites and freelancing sites. Even if those are the main places to get some work, they are not the only ones.

You can try searching for article writing work on classified ads sites such as Craigslist, Gumtree and Backpage. Although it is not guaranteed that you will find something there, if you do it will more likely be long term projects rather than just people who seek to order a few articles. This can work out to your advantage, as you will then have some regular clients who will pay you for your writing. Some of them could even offer you full time work for many months in a row.

Another way to find work is simply by networking with others. By participating in various online marketing communities, you will make contacts who could offer you some projects if they need content written for their sites or introduce you to someone who does. In the internet marketing industry in general, networking can be very profitable for you. Just because you are self employed doesn’t mean that you can’t share ideas and information with others in the industry. Networking will also give you the chance to learn new things or find additional sources of income that you wouldn’t have discovered on your own.

Now that you have some ideas on how to find some projects to work on, you are probably wondering about some ways to increase your earnings from freelance writing. The first thing that you need to keep in mind is that the amount you can earn will increase gradually. While it is possible to make a full time income from article writing, it may take a few weeks or months before you are able to reach that level.

Here are some tips to maximize your profits:

Always do the best quality work and follow the instructions of the clients. By doing so, you will increase your chances that they will either give you repeat work or recommend your services to one of their friends or business partners that could use them.

Respect deadlines by submitting your work on time. Believe me, there is nothing worse for a client than to have a service provider not complete a project by the time they need it. Clients don’t want to hear excuses or be left wondering as to whether you are actually going to complete their order or not.

Seek out long term partnerships and projects. These tend to pay more in the end as you will be spending a lot more time actually writing rather than searching for work all over the place. You are also more likely to get work on a niche that you are familiar with, which will be easier to write about than a few different articles on various topics that you are only vaguely knowledgeable about.

Ready To Start Earning Online?


Many people seek advice on how they can earn money online. A great deal of those are interested in earning a full time income with their own internet based business. The problem is, the majority of them will never make it. Here are some common misconceptions about making money online that people have. Those who fall for these are often the ones that end up quitting.

Well, strange things have happened. Some people DID become instantly successful online. But the odds of that happening to you are very low. In fact, you probably have better odds at winning the lottery. All those stories that you see on sales pages are either outright fantasy, or based on a small amount of truth but were subsequently embellished. While it is definitely possible to earn four figures a day, it will take you a lot of trial and error, and you will need to acquire a lot of experience before you are able to do so.

Working from home is easy! Earn money by sitting on your couch!!

No it’s not. And no, you don’t just sign up for an affiliate program and wait for the truck full of money to arrive at your door. You will need to do actual work if you want actual results. While there are many ways to optimize your operations and make them more efficient, therefore reducing the amount of time you are actually “working”, there is no such thing as a true “set and forget” system that will bring you money without any actions. You will still have to monitor your progress and make adjustments to your campaigns.

You can get started with absolutely no money and never invest a single cent!

Again, possible, but hard to achieve in reality. Just like any business, an online business will require you to invest some money. You will need to pay for things like web hosting, domain names, advertising, etc. While there are many ways that you can get started for free or with a very small amount of money, if you want your business to grow and make you a decent income, you will probably need to put in some money of your own.

Join my program/buy my e-book/download this tool and you can be rich in 5 minutes!

Sorry, no. While there are definitely some excellent informational products, membership sites and programs that can give you very valuable information and help you achieve success online, you will actually have to use them properly if you want to make money. This means actually applying the concepts that they teach, which will take you some time to see results.

Your success is 100% guaranteed for life! You can just keep doing the same things everyday!

Unfortunately, there are no guarantees in this business. The internet is constantly evolving. When it comes to money making opportunities, some doors will close while new ones will open. You always need to be on top of your game and be aware of new developments in the industry.
