Start An Online Business

Are you looking for a way to make money from home? There’s a plethora of confusing information out there. No doubt you’ve been trying to find LEGITIMATE ways to make money from home. Unfortunately, many are not  legitimate. Lots of sites out there are trying to separate you from your cash without paying you in return. What you’ll find here are resources, reviews and tips. 

I’m always on the lookout for legitimate ways to make money online. And you’ll find those reviews here.

How Can I Start An Online Business?

I think there are three phases you go through when you start thinking about how to make money from home.  At least this has been my personal experience. See if you connect with any of the phases listed below.

Phase I

This is where you dip your toe in to see if the water is warm. You might try online data entry, surveys, or task-based programs to test the system to see if it really does pay. You may get paid with currency but usually you’re paid in coupons, vouchers, gift cards or special discounts. Not very exciting since you can’t really pay your bills with these.

Phase II

This is where you try to use skills you already have. So if you have any experience in transcription, writing articles, or other technical skills, the next step might be to join a few job marketplaces. Places like Upwork, Freelancer, or Hubstaff to name a few. These sites tend to be highly competitive with lots of people bidding on work. In some cases, a monthly fee is required to see potential jobs.  So you may be out of pocket before you even start.

Phase III

Eventually, you may come to realize that you have plenty of skills to start your own business. You’ll need a website so you can market your services. This is where it gets exciting because all the money you make is your own. But it’s not about throwing up a website and seeing what sticks. There are specific steps you need to take to ensure your success. 

What If I Don’t Have Any Skills? Can I Still Make Money Online?

It is certainly true that if you already have skills that people are willing to pay for, you’re ahead of the game. It’s easier to get your business off the ground. Build your website, market your services and build up your client base. All very doable.

But if you think you have no skills, you can still build a successful online business. In fact, it may be easier since you are not tied to a specific skill set.  You can build a website to promote any type of products you want and receive commissions for any sales made through your site. This is done through affiliate marketing and this is how thousands of people are making money online. In fact, according to my research, 20% of the people in the world are making their living through affiliate marketing.  And affiliate marketing generates over $12 billion annually. With more and more people turning to online ordering, that leaves plenty of room and income potential for everyone.

The information you will find here takes a deep dive into many different ways to make money from home using all the methods outlined above. The reviews contain the pros and cons of these sites and if they are worth your time. I’ve worked for many of them so I also have first-hand knowledge. 

I hope you enjoy the information you find here and if you have any questions or would like me to review a site for you, contact me here
