Have you asked the question, How Can I Make Money From Home? If you have, or if you’ve at least been wondering, then here are some answers!
You have heard me say several times that JOB stands for Just Over Broke, and it’s a very sad fact that there are millions of adult Americans who are just barely surviving, just barely squeaking by. They are just barely over the line of being “broke.” There’s no need for this, because no matter your job or financial situation, you can easily make more money, working from home, with a home-based business. If you immediately say that you cannot, then you have a defeatist attitude, and you should just click out of this page and go play Candy Crush or watch the Kardashians! Two extremely useless and pointless activities! 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 still reading, and I congratulate you on your attention span. So few people have one 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 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
Also, you can do either of these activities by either:
(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, or waxing cars, then you certainly can’t do that for people online. If you can provide a service such as telephone customer service, graphic design, writing, editing, bookkeeping, accounting, consulting, reading tarot cards, and so forth, those things can be done online, and your customers can be located just about anywhere.
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 others, 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. In which case, 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!
If you want to sell merchandise you can either:
Buy some wholesale merchandise and peddle it in your area
Join a network marketing company which will provide you with catalogs and/or your own website
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
Develop your own website
Now, if you want to buy wholesale merchandise that you’re going to resell in your area, then you will want something that is small, light weight, and something that people will buy on impulse when they see it. You might also want something useful or that is a novelty, and something that is not sold at every corner store. I have had much success with peddling non-lethal, self-defense Pepper Sprays and it’s an easy and profitable business!
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.
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 like the idea of selling merchandise from catalogs but not for an MLM company, just great gift items that you can get for less than the retail prices shown in the catalogs, my website can provide you with them. 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 that, you can actually get started for under a hundred bucks. The domain name might cost, say, 20 bucks, and the pre-made website, stocked with thousands of great items, might cost, say, 50 bucks a month. You can try it 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, no one knows that you’re online. You have to take steps daily to promote the website; emails, social media, videos, writing some good content, perhaps some advertising, and so forth.
Here are two great companies that work in conjunction with one another to provide a scenario as I’ve just described. The websites they provide are very similar to my PriceDoesNotMatter.com seen here!
If you have other ideas of ways for you to earn money, ways that appeal to you, then you should choose one or two of them and get started! Life is too short to be broke, bored, lonely, and unable to do the things that you want to do! The main thing is to get started, work hard, don’t give up, and ignore anyone in your life who says that it “won’t work,” or that you “can’t do it.” Remember that; The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it!
Thanks and Many Blessings!
