Those who make money from home make the economy stronger by having more money to spend and by building the businesses whose products and services they help to sell. It costs nothing to become an affiliate marketer for companies because you are helping them build their business. Why would they charge you to help them. That would make no sense, would it.
It is the pay it forward principle
If you give, you are given more to give. According to my beliefs, God facilitates that, but it works for many who do not believe as I do, just the same. I use article marketing to promote businesses including one that helps article marketers develop skills necessary to grow their businesses. There is no fear that you will learn a lot and congest the field so I have trouble competing. The Internet community is so huge and the tools and methods exist to find those waters that have not been heavily fished, so someone starting now is not at such a disadvantage.
To efficiently make money from home, make the success of others your goal
When you write articles to promote business and make money, you are writing for three: you are writing for the business that wants to sell its products and services; you are writing for yourself, hoping to make some money and get your message out there, and you are writing for your readers, who have no interest up front in either you or your business partner making money. The reader is not the victim. You are not there to hornswoggle someone, deceive him or her, or in any way, or force the reader to read a high pressure sales pitch.
Nuts and Bolts
Starting out, I would recommend you go to Clickbank and set up an account. When you are in, you are an affiliate for thousands of businesses and products. Go to “marketplace” and see if you can find something that intrigues you or agrees with your concept of something you would like to promote. I would recommend that when you consider a product to promote, that you think of a reason a small group of possible clients or customers will be “hungry” for it.
Feed the Hunger
I am targeting people who want to make money from home, make money off the Internet, telecommute, however you want to put it, but mean to do it without necessarily doing the work for someone else (i.e. having a boss). This is a huge group of people and not a niche per se, but through keywords I am attempting to reach a certain segment of them.
Who needs it?
If, for instance, you have decided to promote a weight loss product, you have chosen a very large industry and it is very easy for your voice to be lost in the roar of the crowd. If you write an article on “how to lose weight,” I can virtually guarantee you are not going to make a dime. If you narrow it down, though, and target people who have to lose weight because they have just been told they are borderline diabetic, or they must lose weight in order to become pregnant, or they have to lose weight to save what remains of their furniture, this would constitute what we call a niche – a small segment of a larger market. If you direct your writings and your website to that small group of people, you will indeed make money from home, make your life better, and make your job irrelevant.
How do you make money from home, make your computer a cash machine, and make out like a bandit?
There are several steps involved, including as already mentioned, choosing a product, choosing a niche, and making up a website, but of those, two are free and the third is cheap (well, some can be expensive). There is much more and it can seem overwhelming, but it does work much better if you have a support structure of others doing the same thing from whom you can get answers to your questions and directions as to what to do next.
In short, there is no free lunch, but for money from home, make sure you are ready to put in the work and plug into a community of others, like yourself, who are building a life on a shoestring budget.
