How Can I Make Money at Home?

Making Money Online

The question everyone is can I make money at home? The question that has thousands of answers!

Let’s start at the beginning. Why are so many people asking this question? Again, many answers but generally it breaks down to the average person being tired of working hard every day and not getting ahead! Not wanting to spend the rest of their working lives making money for the big corporations who don’t appreciate it. Wanting to spend more time with family and have a life outside of work.

Any of these sound familiar? More than likely….YES!

So now the question is, are you willing to work just as hard for yourself?  We’ve all heard the standard lines….anything worth having is worth working for and the work you put in is what you get out etc.  TRUE!! If you’re not willing to put in the time and effort, trying to make an income online will not work for you!

So What are the Options?

There are so many levels at which you can make an income online. Maybe you would just like to inject some extra funds into your bank every month for play money.

If so, you may want to look at doing online surveys or watching videos. Most surveys pay less than $5 so depending on how many are available to you and how much time you put it, you may see $200 a month. Here are a couple suggestions to investigate.

Never join any survey site that requires you to pay money! There are a ton of these sites. The more you sign up with, the more surveys you will have the opportunity to complete, and the more money you can make.


If you’re looking for more than a couple of meals out every month, (cuz lets face it, that’s all a few hundred will get you) you may want to investigate selling online.  So what do you sell? Once again, a zillion options! Your best bet is to sell something you’re interested in. Something you’re passionate about! This too can be done in many ways but regardless of what you’re selling you will need a website. There are companies out there that will provide you with a website on their platform if you sell their products.  Many of these are presented towards the stay-at-home mom’s but doing your research will find you many options. Here are a few examples…..

I Have My Own Product to Sell

Awesome! So chances are you have a website already? Is your product selling? Are you getting traffic to your site?

If not, perhaps a look into affiliate marketing is for you. In simple terms, you can advertise on your site for other people and get paid for it. The most well known examples of course are Amazon and Ebay but there are many more. There are also affiliate programs such as Shareasale and Commission Junction that take the responsibility of affiliating you away from the seller. An example of this would be Walmart or Cabella’s. They pay these companies to set up their affiliates and track commissions.  If this interests you, here are a few links….

But it doesn’t have to be that way!
