With the rate of unemployment and economic down turn all over the world, many have found themselves out of jobs, or may have never even gotten one. Where as, there are some that have got a job, but can barely meet their basic needs, hence the search for alternative means to make a better income is being considered.
The internet is a very perfect place to start a business, and one that can thrive IF done in the proper way. There are many on the internet that offer a simple and easy way to start Internet Business, without telling all there is. They would only tell you all you want to hear BUT not what you need to know, simply because they want to take the advantage of you in the guise that they are helping you! Therefore, beware of the information you get from the internet, because all that glitters is not gold.
There are several ways you can earn money online, such as offering your expertise to people that would need it through the internet. The other way is to build a website and drive traffic to it, and then sell your expertise or product(s) to your audience. If you do not have any product or expertise, you can sell other people’s products by way of affiliating with them, while in return you will get commissions off the product(s). Or better still, you can choose to place a contextual ads on your website. All these I will discuss in due course of this post.
However, there are other means by which you can still earn money online such as MLM (Multilevel Marketing), Forex, Binary Option e.t.c. But I am not going into all of these for these reasons;
- Not profitable- I have tried them, but did not find them profitable, because I kept on losing money, especially with Forex and Binary Option. However, it may be OK for someone else, but I am not going to talk about something I do not have faith in. I can’t recommend it.
- Low success rate- I have tried them, and the success rate is low, especially with MLM, you will work and work and it would appear as if you are doing all of that for the success of others. However, there are people that still succeed, but like I said, the success rate is low. Therefore, I am not going to discuss it, since I did not thrive in it, I can’t recommend it.
- No peace of mind- There is always excitement and tension each time you try to make money, especially with Forex and Binary Option, because you don’t really know what is going to happen next. Perhaps it’s me, is just the way I feel each time I was trading. I can’t recommend it to anyone.
- Emotions- There is always the issue of being happy when the trend is going your way and anger or depression when it is against you. And if you don’t have control over your emotions (which is often difficult) you are bound to make bad decisions that will ultimately ground you. This is associated with Forex and Binary Option. So, I won’t recommend it, however, there are people that still succeed in it.
Can Anyone Start An Internet Business?
YES! Anyone can start an Internet Business so long the person is well informed on what to do. However, there are simple and basic requirements, like;
- Being able to express yourself by way of writing in what ever language you intend to use.
- Have a PC (computer) with good internet connection
Those are the things you will need in what I am about to introduce to you and it is recommendable and very viable.
Apply For Online Jobs
Now, you can apply for an online job, to get paid. Especially if you have some kind of skill(s) in;
- Copy writing
- Web design
- Data Entry
- Virtual Assistance
- Graphic Design
- And many more.
However, some of them are pretty much easy to do, like the Data Entry, you do not need any special skill, however you must have the ability to type and do that very fast. I guess that is a skill too.
These are some of the internet sites that you can go to and apply;
These are very few places you can go to; there are other places too, but these ones are LEGIT and you can be rest assured to be paid when a job is done.
Doing this kind of Internet Business will only fetch you extra cash but not enough to make you quit your job. Nevertheless, there are ‘Pros’ that are making a living out of it though. But I doubt if you can make a living out of it as a beginner; sometimes the job takes a while before it arrives. But like with most ‘legitimate’ Internet Businesses, it will require you to be dedicated, persistent and patient. And you may as well become very successful doing that.
Build A Website
This one is the BIG one, because you are building a strong foundation by building your own website! You can pretty much do anything with your website.
- You can decide to create awareness about your expertise with it.
- You can decide to sell your own product(s), or other people’s product (Affiliate Marketing)
- You can use it to collect people’s email addresses to further sell to them whatever it is you are selling (e mail Marketing)
- You can decide to place contextual ads like Google adsense, chikita, media.net e.t.c
Having built a website, you have established Internet Business that will endure. This could just be the Internet Business you are looking for, because its potential is broad and can set you on your way to financial freedom!
How To Make Money With A Website.
To make money with a website is simple, but I must emphasize that it requires commitment, perseverance and patience. I need to let you know that before hand, because I am not about to sugar coat anything in order to impress you, just like most people on the internet would. You can set up your Internet Business and put in the amount of work it requires, and soon you will be smiling to the bank.
Build your website with WordPress or Blogger; but I recommend WordPress/Siterubix because of it efficiency in CMS (content management system) which will also help your website to rank well on the Search Engines.
Choose a niche, especially one that you are passionate about. And start filling your website with good and quality content. Remember, the essence of your website is to provide some sort of help to people by way of giving them USEFUL information in the area you have chosen.
To be able to build a good website and content that can make you money, you have to consider the following;
- Website with a good hosting
- Website with a good outlook/template
- Website with a good content
- Website with a good easy navigation
- Website with a good SEO
- Website with a defined mission (Niche)
- Website withe a good custom domain (Optional but recommendable)
If you get all the aforementioned correctly, you will have no problem firing your boss! And let not all that overwhelm you, if you don’t know how to do all of that, because there is a way around it; that is a way you can get your website up and running with all that qualities within minutes and for free!
