Ways to Work for Yourself from Home
The old world thinking is to have to leave your house or apartment that you rent or pay a mortgage to the back to you job. Usually you go to your job in your car you own or lease or public transportation and all this takes valuable time. Then you go to your job where you are making money for the boss. Bottom line is your salary is not the the first interest of your boss. That is unless you are your own boss. Below I will mention some top ways for you to work from home and save time in commuting to do the things you love.
Most of these income producing ideas are all about working from a computer with internet access which means you could be at home or you could be traveling the world. The choice is yours. All the freedom is now put in your hands with how hard you work to make it happen for yourself.
Affiliate Marketing for Companies
The onlines sales world has Billions of Dollars in sales every day. Why not work as an advertiser for a company already exisiting and find a niche you are passionate about and share that passion and get paid along the way.
What is Affiliate Marketing? You become the marketer for a company. When you advertise their product and someone goes through your link and makes a purchase then you make a commission. This Commission can range anywhere from 4% to 50% or more.
So imagine if you are making 100 sales of a $100 product with 4% commission that is $400 a month for simply posting a link $100 product at 4% commission rate= $4 commision per sale then 100 sales time $4 commission = $400
Imagine if you had a commission rate of 30% for those $100 products that is $30 commision per product. And if you still had the 100 sales a month for those $100 products thats a cool $3000 for posting links.
An easy way to make supplemental income or your primary salary from anywhere with an internet connection.
An amazing company that will help you from zero knowledge to running a successful online affiliate site is Wealthy Affiliate. You will learn a great deal with the free information, and if you choose to upgrade the support you receive is incredible and will help keep on your way to success.
You don’t need to use a training company, but they can definitely help you fasttrack the commissions to roll in to your bank account. There are many affiliate programs out there and some of the top ones you can open accounts with are below. Just keep in mind many do not always accept someone that does not have a website up and running.
Create an Online Business
Being your own boss is always better than being an employee. That is as long as you are profitable. As an entreprenuer you have to wear multiple hats.
- You have to do customer service (or outsource it), You have to create your own logo ( or hire someone)
- You have to do purchase a domain name for your business (I prefer namecheap.com)
- Then move forward with website development
- Marketing of your business which could include running your own affiliate program
You can see in running an onlilne business there are alot of steps you need
Empowerment Life Coaching
Think about it! What person doesn’t want to feel like they are in more control of their lives? You can be that person to help walk them through the process. Who better to help you gain the experience in Coaching than Tony Robbins or Tai Lopez the master coaches. They even have some free training to help you along the way if you choose to learn from them.
With a bit of training you can become the expert to help people seeking help. Bottom line is people are looking for kind compassionat guidance. People want to be in a non judgemental zone where they can improve themselves.
We all have bad habits that were learned when we were little an to improve our lives we have to unlearn the bad habits and create new ones. Nuero plasticity is amazing and we all have the ability to recreate new nueral pathways in our brain of better habits to improve our lives
Create an Online Training Course
Are you a specialist in a certain area? Do you have a hobby that you have done immense amount of reserch on that you could teach people about? What ever your passion, you likely have the ability to teach that to other people.
Now teaching is not always for everyone, but you could easily try your hand at it.
There are two different sites that I know of that are great for you to start your online university.
Udemy – which has numerous courses on there. You can receive commission for your courses in 3 different ways which are explained here under the instructor payscale. They also advertise your course along with all the other courses with over 30 million students around the world.
Another great online school to offer your course is Teachable.com. I like Teachable.com as the pay structure is a bit different and you have the option to be able to create affiliates to your courses. You can then have students that like your courses recommend them to friends and receive a commision for their hard work.
What is nice about both of these sites is you do not need to start a website to be able to sell the courses. Simply create your course and start marketing it to start selling it and making profits.
Create Your Own Youtube Channel
For sure you have heard about Youtubers making money on Youtube. Its like the saying from a movie about a baseball field. If you build it they will come.
