You can get the Work At Home Course Here:
Are you a retiree?
Do you have too much time on your hands or not enough money to last till the end of the month.
Does it have to be like this?
Absolutely not. And although I'm aiming this at seniors it can equally apply to unemployed people (of any age), stay-at-home parents and anyone else who has a bit of free time.
Since the advent of the Internet there are so many more opportunities for everyone. To a great extent it's a much more level playing field.
Age and gender are not the sticking points that they are in other fields. Nobody knows how old (or how young) you are on the world wide web - or even cares - unless you choose to share it.
You can be a stay-at-home mom or dad, a retired office worker, a retired any-sort-of worker, laid off, unemployed, man or woman or whatever. It doesn't matter one jot.
There are all sorts of opportunities out there just waiting for you to exploit them.
I'm not going to say it's easy but it's certainly very do-able to create a side or even full time income from using the Internet as an income producer.
If you're a senior citizen, you might be thinking that blogging is a young person's game. Of course, the typical stereotype of blogging involves some sort of millennial sipping coffee at Starbucks, typing out a blog post and checking all sorts of gadgets.
Well, you need to look past the stereotype to discover that a lot of older people who blog actually make money from their activities. The great thing about blogging is that it produces passive income. To get a clear understanding what passive income is, I want you to remember what it's like to work for a living.
Typically, you would have to show up at a physical location, punch the clock and sit your butt down for 8 hours. It doesn't matter whether you're pushing paper around or you're actually getting up to do physical things for work. Your time is locked in to a particular space for 8 hours.
If you don't do that, you don't get paid. Welcome to the world of active income. It can simply be reduced to the simple formula of No Work, No Pay. It's like you're a chicken. If you don't scratch and peck on the ground, you don't eat.
It gets old quickly. Wouldn't it be great for you to work once, but earn money many times over from the stuff that you worked on a long time ago? This is called passive income. Of course there are many different variations of passive income.
You can publish software, you can create an app, you can write a book or, if you want something lower impact and more in line with your experiences, you can blog for cash.
The secret to blogging success
It's very tempting to just jump into blogging. I mean, after all, how hard can it be? There are all sorts of free blogging tools like medium.com, wordpress.com and blogger.com. You don't have to spend money on a domain name, you don't have to spend dollars on a hosting account. It's absolutely free.
It is no surprise, however, that given the low barrier to entry, most bloggers fail. I don't say that to depress you. I definitely don't share that to discourage you. But this is a reality check. If you don't know what you're doing, don't start.
What follows is a quick guide on how to do it right. The reason why people fail at blogging is because they just blog about anything that they're interested in. On a personal level, this is fine. But the problem is your blog is not a personal diary.
You're trying to make money from your blog. You're trying to turn your time into dollars. If you want to do that, then you have to have a plan.
As the old saying goes, if you fail to plan, you are really planning to fail. Given the ridiculously high 90 percent failure rate of most blogs (whether they launched 10 minutes ago or 10 years ago), you really have to have a plan coming in. The good news is that your plan only needs to have 3 parts: niche selection, monetization plan, and content strategy. By thinking strategically and knowing these key planning elements ahead of time, you pave the way for your eventual success.
You can consider the following:
- Video creation (think YouTube, Vimeo, Fiverr,etc.)
- E-commerce (Amazon, Etsy, etc.)
- Affiliate marketing
- Product Creation
- Auto repair advice/blog
and so on. You get my drift.
If you're starting from scratch you probably need a bit of help and advice.
