Is it really online work at home jobs that you are interested in? JOBS being the operative word here!
A job, known in the online world as Just Over Broke, means you are exchanging your time for money. You work for an hourly wage or some sort of set fee, if you don’t work you don’t get paid and you are working for someone else.
That’s a job.
Not entirely a bad thing, especially if you need money and don’t actually have a job, then this scenario can look mightily appealing.
But I am asking you to look at the bigger picture.
What if you could work for yourself online, build your own business that would pay you handsomely, even when you didn’t work?
Doesn’t that sound like a much better prospect? Well it did to me and that’s why I got started in online business.
What Is Your Why?
The very first thing to ask yourself is why do I want to work online, regardless of if that is in an online job or building your magnificent online empire.
You need to really understand what is motivating you to make a change in your current circumstances.
Generally people working online want one of two things (or both):
This can be more time to spend with your family, more time travelling or more time just doing the things you want to do with your life - other than working.
And this is why I say it’s better to look for an online business than an online job.
The most common online job is freelancing. To do this you need a skill, or skills, that can translate into paid employment. You then put yourself out there and wait to be hired.
You might love to write so you offer to write copy for other bloggers, or create eBooks; or
You might have a graphic design background so you offer to build logos or create book covers or social media graphics,
You might have SEO knowledge so you offer to build websites for businesses or do SEO audits of existing sites,
You might be a budding actor so you offer to do video adverts or video testimonials for companies.
These are just some of the freelance jobs you can get paid for. BUT and here’s that kicker again … you have to work.
You have to produce a product or deliver a service to get paid. And if you stop producing the videos or writing the copy then your income dries up.
Or if what you do is no longer popular then your clients dry up and again so does your income.
Being a stay at home Mum or Dad is all good in theory, but if you are still working all the time, then how does that benefit your family?
You need to work to get paid, you can’t be off picking the kids up from school, doing the washing or doing the weekly shopping.
You need to be at work … working! Even if that is in your spare room or office at home in your pyjamas.
What you really want then is time to do what you want ... yes?
The really unfortunate thing that is happening with the rise of online jobs is the rise on online scams that seem to go hand in hand with it.
You only need to Google “online work at home jobs” to see all the reviews and scams that litter the internet. It’s a damn shame actually because it is giving legitimate ways to make a living online a bad name.
Try telling your family and friends that you blog for a living! I can just about guarantee you most will say “stop wasting your time” or “you’ll get scammed, no-one makes any money online”.
I am here to tell you you can make money online. And you can do it ethically and honestly. There are ways you can make a little, or a lot, of extra income online and be proud of what you do.
I reviewed the Top 10 Bloggers not long ago. Everyone of these individuals are making over $10,000 each and every month, some as much as $100,000 a month!
And they start out just like you and I.
Most of them had no prior experience working online and they have become uber successful.
But they didn’t get successful working for someone else.
They all made the break and started working for themselves. They took the plunge and started being the boss and directing their efforts into something that would benefit them in the long run, not someone else.
And that's what I would like you to consider now.
Think about changing your mindset from being an employee to being the boss.
Doesn’t that sound good? It sure does to me.
How do I do that? Where Do I Start?
I would like to tell you about my #1 recommendation for making money online and working for yourself.
There is no big secret … it is Affiliate Marketing. You know all those professional bloggers you hear about - that’s what I am talking about.
Check out my short animated video which explains how it works.
Yep your own website, featuring you and a topic of your choice. It really is as simple as that.
You can skip all the scams and get rich quick offers that only make the scammers rich and start your own legit affiliate marketing business.
Affiliate Marketing is a really simple concept. It is basically marketing to a group of people and putting the buyers in front of the sellers with you acting as the middleman. When the buyers buy you get a commission. Kind of like a thank you from the seller for bring them the buyer.
It is a proven system. Think of companies like Uber or Air BnB.
Uber do not own one vehicle! They simply introduce the person who needs a ride to the person who can perform the service and they get paid.
Likewise AirBnB do not own one property and yet they make millions annually simply by connecting people who need somewhere to stay with people who have those places available.
Uber and Air BnB are affiliate marketers. They saw an opening, a problem that wasn’t being addressed, and they developed the systems to connect those two groups of people for mutual benefit.
Now don’t panic at this stage thinking you need to come up with some brilliant new idea and be the next Uber to be successful! You don’t.
There is plenty of room in already established markets for millions more affiliate marketers.
You just need to decide what it is you want to blog about? What do you enjoy? What can you talk for hours about? What would you like learning more about or can already help people with you knowledge?
That should be your online business.
What better than to work on building a business in an area you love?
The first think people often say is “yeah but there are already millions of websites out there, it’s all been done, the market is saturated and I won’t be able to break into it”.
At the time of writing this blog 56.1% of the world's population has internet access and 81% of the developed world has it. *Global Internet Usage (Wikipedia)
That’s around 3.8 billion people and GROWING!
You only need a tiny percentage of those people coming to your website to make an absolute killing.
No matter what topic you want to create a blog about there will already be other websites in that niche, maybe thousands of them - there is no doubt about that.
But there will not be another website featuring YOU. You are unique. Your thoughts and ideas on any given topic are your own and no-one else has done that before.
You will put your own spin on your website, it will have your own particular flavour and that makes it different from every other website out there.
You do not have competition, because there isn’t another you out there building a website.
So Does Building an Online Business Sound Good To You?
So wouldn’t you rather work for yourself? Rather than toil away for the benefit of a boss or a faceless company?
Why look for a job when you can build yourself a career?
Wouldn’t you like to know that you will reap all the rewards of your hard work and the income that results? Rather than be a slave to the Boss grovelling for a pay rise?
Wouldn’t you like to spend your time and effort on something that will be completely yours? And that builds out exponentially depending on how much time and effort you put into it?
No more balancing act between trading off your time for money!
Wouldn’t you like a business that still bring in income even when you don’t work? Once set up your affiliate website will be working for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
I would love to show you how to get into affiliate marketing and have you join me on the platform I use to build this website and my other online businesses.
As always I don’t expect you to take my word for it and what I recommend offers you a free Starter Membership and two free websites to get you started.
They do this so you can see the training, the tech support and the community that you would have access too if you become a Premium member. I absolutely love it here and I'm betting you will too.
You do not need any prior experience, you don’t need to know anything about websites or marketing. Their comprehensive training will teach you everything you need to know to be successful and make a generous income.
After you check it out, and if you want to go on down this path, you are looking at about $1 per day to build and run your own online business.
That is it. They offer a Premium membership only, no high ticket upsells or sneaky requirements for you to pay more to be successful. Everything you need to know is provided for you.
To be honest if you think investing $1 per day in yourself to learn the skills and knowledge you need to grow a 6 figure business is too much to pay then this business is probably not for you.
