Since time immemorial, people have wanted to forego the typical 9-5 work week in favor of making a full time living working from home. But is it really possible to make money from home, or are all of those sites out there claiming to deliver miracles, really just scams? In this post I hope to answer this question.
When someone talks about making money from home, they could of course be talking about any method of doing this, from packaging envelopes, to writing a book, right through to running a business. For the purposes of this post I’d like to make a distinction in what I mean by “make money from home“, and what most sites mean by it. Whenever you hear this phrase, it most often refers to making money from the Internet by working from home, in a field known as “Internet Marketing”. Internet Marketing has been around since the Internet was first released to the general public, and people have always pushed Internet Marketing further and further to try and discover the next “latest and greatest” method to turn the Internet into a money generating machine.
Throughout the last couple of decades, new millionaires have been made, fortunes created, and new online companies forged, thanks purely to the Internet. Most of the Internet entrepreneurs who made it “big” online didn’t do it by working a 9-5 job, nor did they do it by setting up a typical bricks and mortar business, instead they had an idea that could turn the Internet into money, an idea that was unique to any other in their time, and they exploited that idea correctly. Most importantly, they took action.
Make Money From Home? Is It Right For Me?
So, is it possible to still make money from home, or has it been over done to the point that there’s now too much competition? The answer to this question is that there’s never been a better time to make money online. Each year, millions of new people are being connected to the Internet for the first time. The vast majority of these people will go on to purchase an online product, with many of them making multiple purchases. In all truth and honesty, there’s not enough competition to cater for all these new cyber citizens. Online businesses are now a dime a dozen, and the reason they’re growing exponentially is because there’s demand for digital products. Believe it or not, but the Internet is now an absolute gold mine for money making, if you know what you’re doing. Here’s a simple finance website that has a RV loan calculator.
Now if there’s one thing I want to teach you in this post, it’s that you shouldn’t fall prey to the typical advertisements which claim to be able to teach you how to “make money from home” overnight, doing almost nothing. I can assure you that most of these so called courses will profit the creators, but not you. In short, don’t fall for them. All the information you need to earn a full time living from the Internet is available online for free.
How To Not Fall Victim To A Scam?
I know, it’s a common trap we all fall into, and I did too at one time. You see that pretty covered ebook with all of its big red fonts promising you miracles, and you think to yourself “ohh what’s $50, I’ve got nothing to lose” only to find out that the ebook was nothing special. If you only made this mistake once that would be fine, but most people who are new to the Internet Marketing game make this mistake at least ten times before they either give up in disgust, or realise that the key to make money from home isn’t buying cheap courses, it’s by learning from already experienced marketers, and doing what they teach you.
Now don’t get me wrong, there are of course some courses out there that are top quality, and I myself spend a lot of money on online courses and other information products, but the difference is is that I’ve been in the game long enough to know which authors are the real deal, and which ones are over night con artists. I can’t afford to be scammed anymore, as I now work from home as a full time living, and if I lost more money than I made from scams, I wouldn’t be in business anymore.
The Secret to A Successful Online Business
So I’ve told you that it’s possible to make money from home, and I’ve also told you to be wary of scam products, but I haven’t actually told you how to make any money yet, have I?
I’m going to reveal to you my strategy right now that I use to make a full time living from home, and no, I’m not going to ask you to signup to any course or pay any money for an ebook (how to invest in stocks). This formula is so surprisingly easily, so simple, that you probably won’t believe me if I told you it. I know you won’t, but I’ll tell you it anyway. Are you ready for it? The key to make money from home is quite simply selling your own digital products.
There, I said it.
Think of it for a moment. You have millions of people around the world who all have millions of questions and problems. Relationship issues, health issues, you name it, people have it, and guess where they look to find answers to these questions? Yep, you guessed it – the Internet.
Building the Brand of Your Online Business
If you can create digital information products that solve these peoples issues and answer their questions, then they’ll pay money for them. Market these products correctly and get them well known enough, and before you know it you’ll have an online business accumulating a small fortune for you whilst you sleep. The beauty with digital products is that you don’t need to package anything in a box and ship it out to anyone, the process is entirely automated. People pay some money to you, and they automatically receive their ebook. This frees up so much time that conventional businesses don’t have, allowing you to create more and more products, and expand your online empire further into new niches.
Believe it or not, but that’s all there is to it – well, at least as far as the concept is concerned. There are of course exact strategies you must learn, and no one said that the process was entirely easy. If it was, everyone would make money from home and not need to work a day time job, but in all honesty the process isn’t as difficult as you may think. Once you get the hang of it, it’s easy, the reason most people don’t make money from home is because they give up before they even get started. Start making some money online today!
I’ve written a mini-online course (free of course) which teaches people, such as yourself, how to make money from home by selling digital products. In this mini-course I cover typical hurdles that “newbies” have, including how to sell your own digital product if you don’t have the time to make your own (a process known as rebranding), and also how to setup a website and payment processor to accept payments and deliver your ebooks to your customers automatically.
