Have you said something such as, How Can I Find Some Ways To Make Money From Home? If you have, or if you’ve at least been wondering about it, then here is some good news for you, along with some answers!
You have heard me say several times, if you’ve been reading my writing, that JOB stands for Just Over Broke, and it’s a very sad fact that there are millions of adult Americans out there who are just barely surviving, just barely squeaking by. They are just barely over the line of being “broke.”
There is no need for people to be so broke and struggling, because no matter your job or financial situation, no matter how much or how little time you have available, you can easily make more money, working from home, with your own home-based business.
If you immediately say that you cannot do it, you’re being negative, and if you don’t have the confidence or the self-esteem, and you have a defeatist attitude, then maybe you should just click out of this page and go play Candy Crush or watch the Kardashians! Those are two extremely useless and pointless activities! If some people took the time they waste at things like that, and applied those hours to doing something productive. Why not grab some paper and a pencil and then play tic-tac-toe for hours and hours? That’s another totally useless and pointless activity!
Back to the subject at hand for those of you who are still reading, and I congratulate you on your attention span. So few people have an attention span of more than a few minutes, these days. The fact that you need more money and want more money is not going to disappear or evaporate, so you are going to have to do something. It is my aim to inspire you and motivate you into doing something.
It seems to me that you can earn extra cash by either:
(A) offering a service for which others will pay you.
(B) selling some sort of products or merchandise
Really, those are the only two options, sell a service or sell merchandise. With that said, you can do either of these two activities:
(1) face to face with people in your town
(2) online, via the Internet, to people just about anywhere in the world
Now, in your town there are only a certain amount of people to whom you can provide the service, but if your service is something like painting homes, cleaning swimming pools, landscaping or waxing cars, then you certainly won’t be able to do that for people online.
If you can provide a service for others, remotely via the Internet, such as telephone customer service, graphic design, art work, writing, editing, bookkeeping, accounting, sign making, consulting, reading tarot cards, perhaps a wake-up phone service, and so forth, then those things can clearly be done online, and your customers can be located just about anywhere in the world.
So, you need to decide: A or B …and… 1 or 2
Offer a service face-to-face to people in your town?
Offer a service online via the Internet?
Sell merchandise face-to-face to people in your town?
Sell merchandise online via the Internet?
If you want to offer a service to other people, something that you can do, and people might be willing to pay you to do it for them, whether in your town or via the Internet, the way people will find you is by Googling the service they’re seeking to have performed for them.
Since people will use a search engine to find you, it stands to reason that you will need an online presence. It does not have to be a website, it can be a blog, such as the blogs here on WordPress.
If you cannot create a blog for yourself, and write ongoing content to attract attention of the search engines such as Google, then You Can hire someone to create a good blog site!
Alternatively, if you already have a blog, I can start writing dynamic pieces such as this one, up to 400 words in length each time, and you can post them on your blog; once a week, twice a week, every other day, or even every single day. I have package deal where you prepay for the number of blog posts that you would like to hire me to do!
If you would like to sell merchandise you can either:
1: Buy some wholesale merchandise and peddle it in your area
2: Join a network marketing company which will provide you with catalogs and/or your own website
3: Get some catalogs of great merchandise that you are able to obtain at wholesale prices, then show those catalogs around and sell the items at retail
4: Develop your own website
Now, if you would like to buy some wholesale merchandise that you can resell in your area, or your community, then you will want something that is small, light weight, and easy to carry a few around with you. It should also be something that people will buy on impulse when they see it.
You might also want to sell something that is useful or that is a novelty to people when they see it, and have it be something that is not sold at every corner store.
I have had loads of success peddling non-lethal, self-defense Pepper Sprays in my community and it’s an easy and profitable business! I actually got involved with the wholesale business as well, because I knew that others would want to make money peddling pepper sprays in their area. I have some customers who are college girls, and they make plenty of money by selling pepper sprays on their campuses to both students and faculty alike.
You can easily earn money selling pepper sprays and even if you don’t own a store or a business, you can still buy some pepper sprays at wholesale and in smaller quantities. We will sell them to any adult who is in the USA, other than the four states where we cannot mail them; MA, MI, NY, and WI.
If you want to join a network marketing company, also known as multi-level marketing or MLM, then there are many good ones out there. Do your online research and choose one that seems best for you.
If you really like this exciting idea of selling merchandise from catalogs but not for an MLM company with overpriced goods and services, you just want to sell some great gift items that you can get for less than the retail prices shown in the catalogs, then my website can provide you with those catalogs, and we can also provide you with the wholesale goods to fulfill the orders. It’s an easy way to earn extra holiday cash from home.
If you want to have your own website, and I am assuming that you’re not going to build it yourself, then you can hire a computer expert to do it for you. You can also obtain a website through a company or pair of companies that will provide you with a ready made website, already stocked with thousands of items. Perhaps one company offers the websites, does the hosting, obtains a domain name for you, and so forth. The other company would be a wholesale supplier that also offers drop shipping. This means that when your customers buy something from YOU on your website, and they pay you the retail prices that YOU decide, then you turn around and order those items at wholesale prices and rather than send them to you, the wholesale supplier ships the items directly to your customer for you. This is called “drop shipping,” and it’s been around for a very long time.
For a cool set-up like this, you can actually get started for under a hundred dollars. The domain name might cost, say, 20 dollars, and the pre-made website, stocked with thousands of great items, might cost, say, 50 dollars a month, and even less if you pay for six months or a year in advance.
You can take a stab at it, and try having your own website for a few months or a year and see how you like it, and there’s no obligation, but if you tend to give up and quit things quickly then this might not be for you, because it takes several months to get a website rolling.
In the beginning, when you first start a website, no one knows that you’re online. You have to take steps daily to promote the website; send out emails, post on your social media account, make and upload videos, writing some blog posts, write and publish some good content online, perhaps some advertising, and so forth.
Here are two really great companies that work in conjunction with one another to provide a scenario as I’ve just described. You can instantly have a website of your own with more than 10,000 gift items. The websites they provide are very similar to my PriceDoesNotMatter.com seen here!
If you have other ideas of ways for you to earn extra money from home, maybe some ways that appeal to you, then you should choose one or two of them and get started right away!
Life is way too short to be broke, bored, lonely, and unable to do the things that you want to do! If you need more money to enjoy your life more fully, then make more money!
The main thing is that you should get started right away, work hard, stay positive and persistent, don’t give up, and ignore anyone in your life who says that you won’t be able to succeed, because (A) they don’t know what they’re talking about, and (B) you can do anything that you make up your mind to do!
In the words of Walt Disney, “If you can dream it, you can do it!”
Good Luck & Many Blessings!
