How I make money from home..
I recently got retrenched and with the festive season coming up, it is pretty difficult to find a job. So I decided to try some work from home methods that actually work. And here they are:
Now I know many people have heard about WordPress, but how does it work?
WordPress is a free and open-source content management system based on PHP and MySQL. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. It is most associated with blogging, but supports other types of web content including more traditional mailing lists and forums, media galleries, and online stores.
In other words, it is a place where you can make your own website and start earning an income from it.
So how do you earn?
Well, you help individuals or companies sell their products on your website and then charge them a fee for it (sponsor).
You could also sign up for WordAds (which pays you a certain amount when people view your website, depending on your views.)
Amazon affiliates (discussed below) is another option which you can use, and get paid through Amazon.
There are many ways to earn from a website, such as blogging, photography, recipes etc.
Amazon Affiliate/ Associates Program
Amazon Associates is one of the first online affiliate marketing programs and was launched in 1996. When website owners and bloggers who are Associates create links and customers click-through those links and buy products from Amazon, they earn referral fees. It’s free to join and easy to use.
Provide customers the convenience of referring them to a trusted site where they can immediately purchase the products you advertise on your site. And when they do, you can earn up to 10% in referral fees.
This one is one of the easiest and free ways to earn an income.
Fiverr is an online marketplace for freelance services. Founded in 2010, the company is based in Tel Aviv, and provides a platform for freelancers to offer services to customers worldwide. As of 2012, over three million services were listed on Fiverr.
You can literally offer any type of service. And get paid to do what you’re good at. Check it Out Here!
School Solver is a marketplace for students to get help with homework questions, answers, and projects. It also provides a way for students and tutors to get paid. Great right!
There’s just one catch, in order to become a tutor and answer questions, you have to complete a quiz. The first time for completing the quiz is free, but after that it starts charging you.
But it is totally worth it, once you start answering questions and getting paid. Click Here For More.
Of course, the most difficult but worth trying out method, is YouTube Videos. All you have to do is upload videos on YouTube, hope that you get at least 10 000 views and 4 000 subscribers within 12 months, and then you start earning a great income from YouTube.
However, you have to sign up for monetization first as well as for Google AdSense. Just make sure you get enough views in order to get monetized and soon you’ll be trending and travelling in business class all over the world! YouTube Link
