If you are looking for ways to make money from home, there are a number of different ways to do so. In this article, I’m going to discuss two work at home ideas that anyone can start doing immediately to generate an income from home. The 2 ideas I’m going to discuss today are affiliate marketing, and blogging. Let’s get started…
Two Work At Home Ideas
Work At Home Idea #1 – Affiliate Marketing – affiliate marketing is simply selling other peoples products and getting a piece of the commission when you make sales for them. You can start by going to a place called ClickBank.com where there are thousands upon thousands of digital products you can sell. Here’s a small overview of how this process works…
You decide what niche you want to get into (diet, health, wealth, dating & relationships, etc…). Start with something that you have some interest in. You then pick the product in that niche that you want to sell. ClickBank, or whatever marketplace you decide to use, will provide you with an affiliate link that it unique to you. You then take that link and use it to promote that product through articles, PPC, videos, classifieds, or even build your own mini site and do some SEO (I know that scares people but it’s actually not difficult).
There are several different ways to promote the product (a lot of free ways as well). When someone purchases that product through your link, you earn a commission. No dealing with customers or anything like that. Your job is just to pick what product you want to sell, get your unique affiliate link, and promote that product to a targeted audience that would buy it.
Work At Home Idea #2 – Blogging – This is something that you can actually combine with affiliate marketing, or do it on it’s own with Google AdSense, or both. Basically you are going to want to start by building a blog. I’ll use golf for an example (I’m an avid golfer) but you can do this with anything or any niche. Since I love golf, I would put together a golf blog and just write about golf. It’s easy to do it with something your passionate about, but you can do it with anything really.
So let’s say I build a blog about golf swing tips. I write different posts about how to improve your golf swing, fix your golf slice, putting tips, chipping tips, etc… Just write about golf. Once I have some good quality content on my site, I’ll start placing Google ads on the site, and maybe even some affiliate ads for some golf related products. As I get traffic to my sites, as long as I’m providing quality information and people like my site, they will stay there longer which gives me a better chance of them clicking on my ads or excepting my recommendations on any products.
Now, I am a full time home based business entrepreneur, but I actually did built a golf blog because I do actually love to golf. It’s still new, but if you want to check it out so you can get an idea of what I’m talking about, just to to EffectiveGolfSwingTips.com. This site was built in about 30 minutes using WordPress.
These are just two work at home ideas but if take the time and put forth some effort, you can generate some nice income from either method.
