Making Money Online - How To Ideas

Last Update: July 21, 2017

Ideas For A Home Based Business

Hi Folks

How Can I Make Money Online? A question that's asked over and over again by new members.

Here are some ideas for those who do not know where to start:

1. Writing

If you like writing, market yourself as a writer. You can start your own business by writing articles for companies. You can even write ebooks or short stories. You could even write a book on getting started with WA and achieving success. Example: You could do a whole series of How To's.

2. Editor

Charge people and companies to edit their work. There are many places that will pay you to look over their work for mistakes. (Proofreader)

3. Become an Ebay seller

This one is so simple. Members of my own family make great money at this.

Sell items on Ebay. There is a small fee to list your items on Ebay. Order items at wholesale prices, and then resell them. In case you don't what this actually is its called Arbitrage.

4. Network Marketing Business

Get a product in a niche market. Once you have obtained a product, sell that product. While selling that product, recruit others under you. You will obtain a percentage of their earnings. A lot of WA members are involved in this.

5. Become a Virtual Assistant (secretary)

Many companies hire businesses to advertise, organize their profits, provide customer service, and more. By becoming a virtual secretary, you can provide these services at a lower price. Small businesses are always looking for less expensive ways.

6. Become a consultant

Many people are looking for advice. If you have a subject that you are very knowledgeable in. Using this subject, you can charge people for your advice. An example is Internet business gurus such as Neil Patel. Many Internet business gurus like him charge for advice on how to become successful.

There you go folks. These are just some ideas about what it will take to get started making money online.

Do some research and then do more research and if you're still stuck, more research.

there is no easy ride when you're working from home. You have to work at it.

Anyone with ideas to make money online please leave via a comment.

Thank you and have a great weekend.

Hello Carol and thank you for your comment.
Lots of B&B's out there though Carol.
Depending where you are of course but you really only have a few months of a tourist season to make real money and the rest of the time is a Bread & Butter income.
Still if you would like to give it a go then there's nothing stopping you except You!.
Enjoy your Wednesday.

Hello Again Katie.
Not too bad here today but it wont last as rain expected this afternoon.
Seems there's quite a lot of budding authors within WA as well coz I get asked how to questions about eBooks every week.
Unfortunately although I like to write I have never published.
Maybe some day before I get too old and decrepit lol.
To your own success and your girls Katie.
Now I'm off out and get myself uptown.
Catch you later.

Turn it into a TV series perhaps and call it 'The Mean Streets Of Auld Reekie' lol.

Another idea is what I am doing now Robert - drop shipping.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Hello Kaju. Yes Drop Shipping is something you can make decent money from.
I believe I mentioned this in another blog and I did publish an article on one of my sites about it as well and had several questions asked about it.

Hope you are having some success with your own endeavours.
Have a great weekend and much success.

The possibilities are really encouraging.....assuming Affiliate Marketer is a given.....actually being an Affiliate Marketer incorporates a lot of the skills needed for any of the above categories.

These 6 are only a tiny amount compared to the countless ways you can earn an income from the internet Debbie.
yes as an affiliate you can use all these ways to generate an income away from the usual way of promoting for commissions.
Is there any of the 6 that you could be interested in?
Maybe there's a couple that would bear some investigation.
Enjoy your Friday Debbie and be successful.

There's more to marketing online than the same old same oh affiliate stuff Dale.
Look at your other options and you never know there could be something that's right up your street you just never took the time to find out.
Worth a wee bit more investigation on your part perhaps.
You wont know until you try.

Hello Abdusalam and thank you for reading my blog.
Was there anything that caught your eye though?
Perhaps you could investigate one or two further.
Doesn't do any harm to have another string to your bow as they say.

The first graphic that you put at the beginning of the blog kinda says it all, even without reading the whole blog.
For me, your blog is particularly useful as I try to think of other sites to set up.

Having said that, I'm still struggling to get the right content for my new domain. It's not so easy :D

Robert-A Premium
You have only been here a short while so plenty of time to do some brainstorming until you find something that you know will make you money.
No point in just jumping in and hope your idea will make you money you really have to be a lot more sure than that.
You will know within yourself what you are good at and have extensive knowledge off.
Base your site(s) round what you know and that will come across to your readers.
To your success.
Now I'm off home to get some eats so maybe catch you another day.

I Like the sins of home based business ideas Robert, I should put that list on a sticky note and paste it somewhere just to remind me.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Hi Alex and thank you for reading my blog and for your comment.
I think we will all be guilty of at least one of these sins and I just put it there as a reminder.
I notice you are listed under the same sort of Headlines as I am with the SERPs.
This being so perhaps you are thinking of branching out into other areas of making money from the internet.
Have a great Friday while you're doing so.

Hi, Robert.

Many thanks for those links. It's greatly appreciated. Let me concentrate on my present site for the time being and see where that gets me.
Proofreading is fine. I've done it before, but it's not like affiliate marketing. It's a totally different kettle of fish.
I'll keep those links and have a proper look when the right time comes...
Thanks again.

No probs and you never know it might be a hidden gem you can go back to when things are a bit stale with your other online efforts.

That's true, Robert. It's not wise to have just one source of online income.
Fingers crossed all goes according to plan :)
