You may have asked the question, Is it possible to earn extra money from home? If you have asked that question, or if you’ve at least been wondering about it, then here are some answers! It is very possible to earn extra money from home, and it’s possible to earn a full-time living from home, and even a HUGE income from home. Millions of people in the USA have their own home based businesses, and today it’s easier than ever before to make a living from home.
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 really no need for this type of financial struggling, because no matter your job or financial situation, you can easily earn money, working from home, with a home-based business.
If you want to make money from home, you need to decide whether you would like to deal with people face-to-face in your community, or deal with people all over the USA (or even around the world) online via the Internet. Another decision to make is whether you want to offer a service, something that people will pay you to do, or do you want to sell some sort of products or merchandise.
Basically, you will end up doing one of these four things, at least initially;
Offering a service to people face-to-face in your area.
Offering a service to people online via the Internet.
Selling merchandise face-to-face to people in your area.
Selling merchandise online via the Internet to people anywhere they might be.
If you have a service to offer, then you need to start advertising that service, and find ways to promote the business. I would suggest a website or a blog, and if you need someone to create an effective blog, just like the one you’re reading right now, I can do that for you. Whether it’s a service that you’re offering to people in your area, or online, people will most likely find you by Googling the service you’re offering.
Having a website or blog, with some useful information or content, will attract the search engines, and updating the content on a regular and ongoing basis, will help increase your chances of moving up in the search engine rankings.
If you are going to sell merchandise face-to-face to people in your town, then you need to find a wholesale merchandise source, and hopefully a source that will allow you to buy small quantities and perhaps without owning a business or a store. Click that link above, because I just might be able to help you.
You will want to buy some merchandise that is something which appeals to you, something that you will enjoy selling, and something that people will buy from you on impulse when they see it. Rather than sell something that is big, heavy, and bulky, you may do better with something smaller and easier to carry, show, sell, ship, or mail.
If you are going to sell online, then you might want to consider having your own website, and luckily these days, it’s easy to have a website of your own, because there are companies that will set you up with your own premade website that is already loaded with products. Someone buys something from you at retail, the funds are deposited into your PayPal account, then you turn around and buy the item at wholesale from a wholesale supplier who ships the item directly to your customer. The difference between the retail price your customer pays you and the wholesale cost that you pay for the item is your profit.
Of course, just getting the website is not all that you need to do, because you also need to take steps to promote the website, and on a regular basis. People will only find your website if you give them a reason to find it, and when they Google something that you’re selling, you will want to show up in the search engine rankings, and one way to do that is by adding more content to your website as often as you can. Alternatively, you can have a separate blog that points to your website, and you should add some new content to that blog as often as possible.
For the folks who are not able to write new content or information, they can hire a ghost writer to write the content for them. There are numerous talented ghost writers found online.
This all makes it sound easy, and it is… you will have to work, and you will have to put effort into your enterprise, whatever it may be. You cannot just buy a few dozen pieces of something at wholesale, then throw them into the closet, and forget about them, and expect to make money. You also can’t just get a website, then kick back, and expect people to flock to your site and buy whatever you’re selling. You can earn money from home, but you will have to work, but it’s so much nicer to work from home at your own pace, rather than go to a J.O.B. and work for someone else.
When you have your own enterprise, it often does not feel like work, and you just might enjoy doing whatever work you have to do to promote it and make it successful. Also, you can work early in the morning, in the middle of the day, or even late at night, especially in the case of a business that is done online.
