Make Money From Home? Your Step by Step Guide Part 1

Sep 10, 2008
If you want to make money from home, you have 2 main choices:

One. Make money online.

Two. Make money off line i.e. not using your computer.

In this article I will cover how to make money online, and in my next article, part 2, I will cover making money off line.

So, here is something vital you need to ask yourself (and then I will show you how to make the money!):

How much do you want to earn and how much time can you put into your home-based business?

Because your answer to those questions will help you determine which route to make money from home is best for you.

If your answer is something like "I want to make $2000 - $5000+ a month, passive income and I have plenty of time to build my business" then I would recommend you: Create your own website (no previous experience required, full details via the link below) and/or get involved with affiliate marketing. This is where you sell other people's products online, without needing to buy anything yourself or deal with customers.

These are both my preferred way to make money online. Why? Because you can create a passive income with them once the initial work is done. In other words an income that comes in whether you work or not! Plus, I really enjoy both methods.

If your answer is "I just want to make a lot of money fast and I don't have much time" I would recommend you explore how to make money with Google Adwords. What is it?

This is an online advertising program. My best advice with this is, don't spend a dime on ads until you have thoroughly studied how this system works. It looks easier than it is! However, once you have studied carefully how the successful marketers make money with this system and have some successful campaigns of your own, it can pretty much take care of itself. So, if you have a full time job and/or family commitments this could be great for you. You can run any number of campaigns, and therefore earn as much as you decide.

If your answer is "I simply want some extra part-time income and I don't want to learn new stuff" I would suggest you investigate doing online surveys. It's a straightforward simple way to make some extra cash.

If you like sharing your thoughts and opinions with the world, and would like to get paid for doing so, look into how to make money blogging. A blog is simply an online journal really which you can set up for free. So, if you are financially challenged this could be a good option to start with. You make money with the blog from adverts and links you place on the blog. There are books which explain exactly how to do this.

Finally, to make money online successfully it's also vital to understand all about keywords. Keywords are like signposts really - if you put the right ones in the right place and quantity on your website, in your adverts or on your blog you will, in time, get lots of visitors. Lots of those means income for you...

All sounds like Greek? Don't despair! I explain all these methods on my website in full detail.

Last tip: If you feel passionate about your business success will surely follow. So take your time researching the method to make money from home that's right for you. If you are excited by one method more than the others, try that one first and give it all your focus. There are big incomes to be made on the internet but the legitimate ones require hard work initially at least.
