3 Creative Ways to Make Online Money From Home
If you are reading this article, then the chances are you're either trying to diversify your income, or you're trying to quit your eight to five job. That is a great move because in our world today relying to only one source of income is too risky and you should be prepared before it's too late. The best thing is, with a computer connected to the Internet you can even generate income within the comfort of your own home.
I have to admit that making money online will not be easy. But if you have a solid determination, focus on the right track and willing to allocate two to three hours a day, six days a week for the next six months, then I strongly believe you will start seeing the fruits of your effort. Now let's see some creative examples how you can generate income from the Internet.
1. Help people and ask for donation.
Chances are that you have some knowledge that you can use to help other people. If you are good at handling car accident insurance claim, you can write an e-Book on how to handle car accident insurance claims. If you are good at computer programming, you can write small program that can help other people tasks. I've seen lots of simple online software such as online alarms, stickies and many other useful software that help people.
On the contrary to what most people do, refrain yourself from selling your stuffs. Instead, ask them for donation in whatever amount they feel worth. People like to share free stuffs, and your product can reach more people this way. You'll be surprised to see how many people are willing to contribute for your good stuffs.
2. Give away free reports with affiliate links .
If you feel ashamed on asking for donation, there is another way you can write for money. Many people try to make money online by promoting affiliate products. Do not get me wrong. This is still a great way to make money online, but why do not you leverage your effort a bit. Instead of simply promoting an affiliate squeeze page, find out what are the pressing matters of your targeted market. Let's say you want to focus on weight loss. What are the pressing matters for people trying to lose weight? Find if there are any "good" affiliate products that can help your targeted market. Then write a step-by-step guide, and use the affiliate products as a tool in your guide.
Most people are reluctant to buy products, unless they precisely know how it can help them. This is especially true, when they buy products on the Internet. By writing a step-by-step guide, you are helping your prospects to understand the usefulness of your product. With that, you increase their confidence level on buying it.
3. Sell your expertise online.
One morning, after conducting defragmentation of my PC, I was so surprised to see that some file names in my computer were in blue text. Worried that I might have done something wrong, I browse the Internet and found a website that seems to be explaining on that. It explains a bit on why it happens, and charge me if I want to learn on how to undo it and get access to their other high end tutorials. If you have some special expertise, then you can do the same thing too. Build a website and share some of your expertise. For the "high end" part of your skills, put a reasonable price for it.
Leverage your online income with a targeted email list.
The above three tactics are great ways to make some money. But, if you want to really make big money online, there is no other way than building a targeted email list. Just imagine that there are thousands of people you can email once you launched a new e-Book or product. Would not that be a smarter idea than to let people find your products naturally?
The most common mistake done by people trying to make money online is, they usually try to sell their product at the very first attempt. But, business is not about merely making money. Business is about being awarded for solving people's problem. This is especially true if you are trying to make money online. If you really want to make big money online, then build your list and create trust by solving their pressing matters.
