Making your own income.
If you are struggling to survive or you are holding down 2 jobs or hate the work you are in then your health will suffer!
The first thing you need to do is find something you are passionate about. How do you do that? The best way I know how is obviously to use the internet as your search tool. Look at all the products you like or careers that you are interested in. Then make a list of the pros and cons of each thing you decide. It might look something like this:
- I like computer games Fun Doesn't earn money
- I like driving Freedom Expensive
- I love shopping Makes me happy Uses up income
Whatever you choose, there are ways to make it work on the Internet, which means you can work from home!
There are requirements
If you are to earn an income in online marketing you will need to have a set of skills. Plus you will need a computer and an internet connection.
You will need to learn a basic set of skills. Luckily with the internet, you have so many resources, free ones at that, that will help you on your journey.
The first requirement is setting up your website.
To set up a website is not a scary thing. In this day and age, it is a relatively simple thing to do. There so many free tutorials and websites for you to choose from, you can try this one;
Once you have a website it's time to create content for your website and you will find this particularly useful if you don't know what to write about or think you are not a writer. There is a lot of useful information here: How to Create Great Content
Just briefly, if you can have good conversations with friends, family and colleagues you have the skills to write great content. In this tutorial; How to Create Great Content, you will learn about the different styles of writing and how best to use them to get your message across.
Content does not have to be dry or uninteresting, it is a way to free your passion and express your opinions. Once you know how to create content it does become quite addictive.
Unlike a conversation, in writing, you get to express things the way you want and you can edit it until it is just right. You don't get to do that with a conversation.
Plus you get to add pictures to illustrate your point more clearly. You will find that; How to Create Great Content, is a great resource to get you started in this incredible field and it's free!
Apart from creating a blog about your experiences and adventures you have had in life, you might want to earn an income from your website. This can easily be done but does take time.
First off, you need to find products/services you are passionate about.
If you are not passionate about what you are promoting then the chances of earning any kind of income will be slim.
How do you find out what you are passionate about?
I know that may seem a strange question, but for some people, it is not obvious.
What you can do is be aware of what shows you watch, which shops you frequent and which websites draw your attention and take it from there.
I have found that I like to help people to lead happier healthier lives. I do this by creating training and giving advice. Nothing makes me happier than finding out someone has benefitted from my advice.
