Chad Arrington | Make Money From Home | If you have been reading my previous content, then you know I’m always trying to answer the most common questions. Making money from home is something everyone wants to do, but very few know how to do it. I can think of 5 ways right now you can make decent money without even leaving your home. Later, we’ll be going through each one, but for now, I want to talk to you about what you need before the start.

First, you must be able to work from home. Many people find it hard to make the transition. For example, when I got started, I found it very hard to work from home because I would be very lazy. You have no one to push you to work and stay motivated. This can stop your progress and how much output of work you get done. Secondly, most of the work will be done on your computer so you need to make sure you have a reliable PC. Remotely, you must connect with employers or log into other websites to submit content. Some jobs will require you to have your own website which will be impossible without a computer. Finally, being able to keep deadlines is very important so this is something you must be able to do on your own.

If you can do what I suggested above, then you will have no problem making money from home. Now, let’s explore the top 5 ways to make money when at home. If you have any questions, please post them in the comment box below.

1) General Blogging

Many people set up their own blog and start writing content about something they are passionate about. This attracts some major traffic and builds an audience. When you have a lot of readers, you can start to sell advertising space, write product reviews, and make money from selling your own products. But, with this approach it does take time to get set up and for you to start generating a decent number of visitors. With that said, here are some tips to help you get started.

Start by doing a quick search in Google and finding resources on “how to start a blog”. There are many guides which will walk you through the entire process. Setting up a blog can be done within a few minutes now because of WordPress so all you need to do is write high-value content. I recommend writing content which solves a common problem in your niche.

2) Filling Out Surveys

There are many websites that will allow you to fill out surveys to earn extra income. You will be paid anywhere from $0.80-$1.20 per survey which is filled out. Unfortunately, this is a lengthy process and the money you earn won`t be enough to buy a house or anything. I recommend you fill out surveys as a side gig and don’t depend on it as a full-time income. I’m listing it because you can make money from home. You just need a computer and need a handful of survey websites which are easy to find. Head over to Google and do a quick search for “online surveys” and you’ll find 8-10 you can get started with right now.

Bonus: to increase your earnings sign up to all the survey sites you can think of. This way you have a lot of surveys you can fill out from different companies.

3) Freelancing

Another great way to earn some money from the comfort of your home. Through freelancing, you can actually earn a full-time income but you need to work your way up and build your company identity. The two sites I recommend are – Odesk and Freelancer. These are sites which have thousands of employers looking for projects to be completed in almost every niche. When you sign up on any of the networks, the first thing you should focus on is your profile. Speaking from my own experience, it’s amazing how employers go through every aspect of your work portfolio.

In the beginning, it will be hard to secure work because you haven’t built a reputation online with them. For this reason, you might need to work for a low wage, but this will be only temporary. Afterward, you can continue to build your reputation and can earn a lot more money. There are some people who are earning $45,000 USD per year on Freelancer. Again, it’s all about the quality of work you do and how well you network with others on the platform.

Get started now by heading over to Freelancer and creating your free account. Go through the setup process and take your time on the quizzes.

4) Advertising

Another great way to make money online is by building your blog and then selling advertising space to other relevant blogs. This has been a great way for others to earn money and some people have been very lucrative doing it. But, for you to really make some money using this strategy, you need to have an online presence. This means you need to write high-value content, stay consistent, and solve a common problem within your niche.

I would recommend that you start collecting email subscribers because this is a great way for you to retain customers and have a constant flow of customers coming to your website. Every time you publish content, you can shoot your email subscribers an email letting them know which will drive a lot of traffic to your website quickly.

Once you have enough traffic, apply to the network and list your website. This is a site which gives you a complete backend to control your marketing efforts. You can sell marketing space, manage the money, and track clicks, impressions and more. It’s a great network of people making a lot of money. But, the demand to buy marketing space goes up when you have a lot of traffic on your website. The demand also goes up depending on where the traffic is coming from. For example, ad space can be sold for more when most of your traffic comes from within North America.

5) E-commerce

This is one of the best ways to make money from home is by setting up your own e-commerce website. There are so many tools available to streamline the entire process, and you can even drop ship the goods by being a middleman. Several years back this would have been impossible, but now you can pay for an e-commerce hosting plan which costs anywhere from $15.00-$$25.00 per month. In early 2007, I started an e-commerce site and ran it for 3-4 years before the recession hit. It was very lucrative and I was operating from the comfort of my home. You can be doing the same going forward, but it’s important you do your research before getting started. Here are a few things to pay close attention to –

First, make sure you are in the right market because it’s going to be hard to make money selling products if there is no demand. You can do research online visiting Amazon and eBay to see what products are best sellers. Secondly, you can also visit other stores to see what they are selling and then think of ways to beat prices or put a twist on the way you do business. For example, you might want to offer free shipping or discount on shipping, something, not offered by your competition. Third, it’s always a good idea to find ways to keep costs down because by doing this, you’ll be able to stay extra competitive in your pricing.

In the end, for your store to be competitive, you want to make sure you are in a high enough demand niche, but where there is very little competition. E-commerce can be a very lucrative but again, it must be done right and you must test the waters so you find out what works and what doesn’t.

Final Thoughts

If you’re ready to get started, then explore these options a bit more and get started. Over time, you’ll see what works and what doesn’t so make sure you keep track on the bottom line and the statistics. I encourage you to read through again and take notes so each one will be easier to apply later. The main thing to remember is the following –

  • Pay close attention to the data
  • Never give up so you have a clear indication of what’s working and what’s not
  • Consistency is key for you to succeed online
  • Treat this like a business because if you don’t, then you might have a hard time keeping deadlines.
  • Focus in on what you’re passionate about.
