Are there any legitimate ways to make money from home left?
The answer really is aBIG yes.And a but.But what you ask? Im assuming you mean online, obviously, as that's why your reading this online but
Alot of people are sceptical and rightly so as there are way to many scams and false promises to be had; maybe even more so online.
I'd say that the axiom of common sense is still needed when reviewing legitimate ways to make money from home bearing in mind that sitting at
home in your jarmies is a bit silly, especially if the inlaws come for a coffee visit about midday- actually i'm not going to go there ;)
But i will tell you this- There are some great genuine money making opportunities that i've found over the years with BIG names behind them.
Let's look at some of them.
This is a huge billion dollar company and if you havent heard of them your not from this part of the milky way, thats for sure.If you goto Google
dot com and look just to your lower-left of the type in textbox you'll see Googles 'advertising programs'. Go on and click it and you will see two
programs, that are very successful, which are offered to webmasters (the people who maintain,edit and update websites) and they are Google's
Adwords and Adsense Programs.
[A] Adsense are ads that are displayed on a website that are relevant to the copy (the content and text on the page) of that site. You pay NOTHING
to join the program but a prerequisite is to have a website or get someone to make one on your niche( fancy word for a market within a market.
Say for example instead of a 'broad' term of shoes which would return thousands of unrelated searches a narrow search would be 'Nike Air Burst black
size 10'...which is probably a wallet searching prospect......anyway).
Google will pay you when someone searches in your article and when finished clicks on one of the relevant ads, and depending on what cost the advertiser
payed you get a percentage from Google; anywhere from a few cents to $. The trick is to have alot of keyword rich content that attracts the search engines
and you really want to try and get on the first page of Google.
[B] Adwords. The other side of the marketing coin is Adwords where companies, individuals and affiliates bid for keywords and phrases and place an ad on
the righthand side of the SERPs (search engine results pages) and direct traffic to the site. It's one of the quickest and best ways to get targeted and relevant
traffic to a site. Biggest drawback is Google's algorithms are created to scrutinize and give favor to those ads that are relevant and have a good quality score,
high click through rates, relevant searched phrases on the website and high quality content related to a consumers search:- easy, if you know what your doing
and very expensive if you dont...you could end up paying or more for a click ( when someone presses on the ad to view it- not to be condesending but some
people just dont know the terminology). Theres alot to say on the above but you get the picture.
2. Affiliate Marketing
This is simply signing up for products or services and sending your websites traffic (or you can use PPC- pay per click advertising like Adwords) to the merchants site
( the one selling the service or product which could be a digital product like an e-book or moblie phone) and when someone buys from Them... you get a commision
for your hard work- pretty cool i reckon and so do the Merchants because they end up with heaps of virtual salespeople selling there wares- if theres no sale they
dont have to pay. I enjoy this form of selling the most as theres no-one to talk to face to face, no stock to keep, work your own hours and get dosh coming in even
when you sleep ( what that means and noone ever tells you is, for example, i live in Australia so when i'm sleeping the other part of the world is shopping- at my site ;)
There are definately legitimate ways to make money from home with Affiliate Marketing and i highly recommend this adventure, for sure.
This goes without saying but more to the point is Ebay and Amazon have got to be where they are today largely by knowing Who, How and Where.
What i mean is they know WHO to target and what people are lookin for; the types of trends at the moment and what benefits and 'needs' the consumer is
really after in the marketplace. The HOW as in knowing how to optimise their websites with 'onpage' , 'offpage' optimisation not to mention the 'low hanging
fruit' and the 'long tail' of search terms and phrases.WHERE? The secret is if your a company in Woodville,Adelaide selling used cars you would optimise for the
long tail phrases( keywords with more than 2 words in them) like 'used toyota celica in adelaide' or' ford used cars in woodville'- get it? good ;)
There any legitimate ways to make money from home with your own website selling (or sending traffic) to products that you love, are familiar with, are an expert
in or know enough about to make a comfortable living from having your own website and selling tangable products or Electronic books (ebooks) like affiliate
products and services.
I was going to have a third way and that would be filling out surveys and similar work. The reality? If you live outside the UK, US , Canada you can make money
from this and yes; it is a legitimate way to make money from home but in my experience most forms i've filled out only have paid me 5 bucks...yep. And they usually
take 15 minutes to fill so i dont really enjoy working for per hour just filling out surveys- you go barmy believe me ;)
Nope, in closing i have found that if you find the right information on Adwords and Adsense and how to setup your own sites to bring targetted trafic to it is where,
in the long run (were talking years from now), your going to have a stable, strong and working business that will grow over time and still be around when the others
have gone the way of the dodo. You can have Affiliate products on your sites as well that are relevant to what you sell and bring in extra income.
Are there any legitimate ways to make money from home left? Yes there are if your willing to stop looking at the 500 different ways and find the few genuine, trusted
and profitable ways which will always work, Pay Per Click, Affiliate Marketing and Selling your own products.
