Online Work From Home


How to work online and from home – Work at home programs have become very popular due the explosive growth of the Internet. The Internet allows one access to millions of people with practically no expense. Whether you want to work at home or build a home based business the Internet is the best place to be. The cost is minimal compared to the traditional business. Truth be known, it’s so minuscule that it’s hard to believe, but it is true.


Online companies are abundant as well as it minimizes cost for them as well. It’s a win-win situation for everybody. Whenever a lot of money is made on anything you get the scammers coming in to try and get their share so you have to be careful and do you research. Research is the key to finding the good companies.


Some folks think they can join the first program they see and expect to be successful. I would suggest either using a web site like mine, but not necessarily mine or be prepared to spend the time doing the research yourself.


Often good programs get labelled ad bad both because a person did not do the proper research and it’s not a good fit for their short term and long-term goals.


How To Get Paid For Work Online


For example if you need cash quickly you would not want to look at

 starting an online business.  Why?  Because in most cases it takes time to get you business up and running. A home based business will make you the most money and take the least amount of time over the long run, but it does take time and patience in the beginning. When doing my research for visitors of my site I found Data Entry, Type at Home, Online Paid Surveys and Rebate processor programs to be a good fit for this area.


If you want to put in some time building an online home based business so that you can eventually work minimal hours yet make a real nice income then these other programs are not the best fit for you.


Now what I found out is that most people want both time and money so I always suggest that they do both. If you want time and money then start one or two of the above online jobs so that you have money coming in, but also start and online business and work at building it a few hours a day. This way you will have money coming in, but also you will be building up an online home based business that will allow you to minimize your work efforts over time and make you more money.


It is important to remember that even work from home programs require that you actually have to Work At Home. If you see Ads that say you can get paid for nothing, avoid them, because if it seems to good to be true than it probably is. The good news is that there are plenty of good programs to choose from that will enable you to set up a legitimate work home business.


Simple And Sure Ways To Make Money With A Website


About making money with a website – I think the best legitimatebuilding a website for free work from home/online money making method is designing your own website and then turn it into a host of money making activities. Websites are the  ultimate money making machine, they earn even when you are sleeping. Today, the Web is an intensely commercial medium, offering plenty of ways to make money.

How To Work From At Home In – 


ADVERTISING ON YOUR WEBSITE : The best and most proven method of making a profit out of your website is using advertising. Internet advertising is on an ascending trend, which shows plenty of potential for the near and distant future.

  1. Contextual Ads : The popular search engine, Google, has introduced a dramatic new contextual advertising service called AdSense which allows virtually any website owner to make money without having to do too much. AdSense is a program in which you get paid for targeting your readers to another websites product or service. Google AdSense simply requires the host site to paste in a few lines of HTML code on their pages where they want those ads to appear. This code creates the ads that you see and when someone clicks on one of these ads they go to the advertiser’s site. The advertiser is then charged for the click by Google and Google shares the money with you.

Sign up for Google Adsense and place Google Ads on your site. Google will display the most appropriate ads according to your content and you will get paid for every click on an ad. People are making thousands a month with this.


  1. In-Text Ads : When you mouse over one of these doubly underlined sponsored links you will be presented with a Tool Tip describing an advertiser’s product or service. If someone click on the key-word and it will act like an ordinary link taking visitor to a page belonging to the advertising company. For every click on a highlighted key-word, you will receive a small payment.


In-Text Advertising solution lets you monetize your content in real-time, enabling an incremental increase in ad revenue by providing a new source of untapped ad inventory that does not compete with the other ad programs running on the site. Thereby providing you with a new revenue stream from the content within your site. Intellitxt and ContextWeb provides in-text ads to websites.

  1. DISPLAY AFFILIATE PROGRAM’S LINKS & BANNERS : Another method of monetizing your traffic by putting links/banners of affiliate programs on your website. Concept is really quite simple. Every thing is based on paid referral system. Visitors come to your website, you introduced them to product or service from a third party vendor through a banner or text link and you get paid a commission by merchant in various way: a. Paid per click, b. Paid per lead . Paid per sale. You can choose affiliate networks where different advertisers offer their banners codes and links that will display their banners on your site along with tracking of your sales and leads. Best affiliate networks to get affiliate programs are :




  1. SELL AFFILIATE PRODUCTS : Another profitable way to earn money is to promote affiliate products. You simply direct traffic to a Merchants Website and earn commissions when people buy thier products.

A good way to start with affiliate products is to sign up with ClickBank.

a) There are well over 10,000 different Digital info products. Write up some reviews and recommendations and send traffic to the ClickBank merchant, and if the product sells, you get commissions sometimes as high as 75%. This type of Web site is very simple to setup, however, it requires a large amount of visitor traffic to earn significant money. It’s easy to complement an existing Web site with affiliate links for offering related products to your visitors and, at the same time, earning money.

b) Make money selling other company’s products through affiliate programs. They’ll give you a link to track your sales. is great place to get HTML codes for various products to promote and earn commission. Thousands of people are making a full time income just by driving traffic from their site to merchant sites, never touching or shipping a product.


  1. Charge a fee to access a section of your site.  Provide free access to main sections of your website, but you can charge a fee for an access to members lounge where more lucrative information is often available. If your content is unique and valuable, you can make money charging for it online. People will pay for access, if it’s useful to them. Your members lounge could be a forum, downloadable software, eBooks, listings, etc.


  1. Collect and sell information – Creating a information database isn’t just a good idea – its good business. e.g.  You can then compile listings for free classified websites, ezines, directories, work at home websites, etc. Put a price tag to download them.


  1. Sell your own services to your target audience. Like if you have a website on “making money online” and you are a web designer, you can make an offer to design web site to your visitor, so that they can make money from website. You want to be able to take credit cards on your site and deliver your product to your customers as fast as possible.

    Glad the online work is working for you, I have tried it in the past, unfortunately, I was scammed with two different programs, so whenever I hear about making money online, I was skeptical about it. After reading your article, I was, however, convinced that I must give it another chance. 

    I have decided to give the program you recommended a try (Wealthy Affiliate). I have signed up with it and I will spend decent amount of time researching on how it work. If it all goes well, I will start the course.

    Thank you so much for the great info.

    1. Thank you for your comment Ngonidzashe.
      Yes I have been working online for several years now and it has been quite a ride but I am doing very well. One things for ceratin I will never go back to working for someone else.
      Like yourself I was scammed a few times but you have to accept that with lack of internet experience most people do fall foul of the scammers, fraudsters and other people who are out to get you to part with money and give very little or nothing in return.
      But we persevere and eventually we do find something that suits us and we do achieve success.
      Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to get started. Its not a make money program as most people have come to believe it to be but it will show you How To Make Money Online.
      This of course takes work from you but there is no reason on the planet you wont succeed if you follow the training.
      Plus you have all those other members you can call on for help through the Live Char function.
      The two owners are onsite every day and the support is there for you 24/7, 365 days a year.
      If you need any pointers then get in touch with me and I will be more than happy to help you all I can.
      Onwards and upwards Ngonidzashe and have a nice day.
      Warmest Regards.

  2. Hi There 

    Great work I definitely learned from reading through your post.

    Also liked how you incorporated the use of cartoons to explain certain points and to captivate your readers well done. Maybe someday in the future I will also get to your level. If I did not join WA already you would definitely be twisting my arm to join. Thank you for good reading material and a good explanation on certain topics that people out there should know.

    Keep up the good work.

  3. Working from home is the best thing ever invented:) However, one needs a lot of motivation in order to do it properly. Its very easy to get sidetracked. It also is not a get rich quick scheme- like any job it takes time and a lot of work. 

    Adsense is a great and easy way to make money when your site is still new! So far that has been my biggest source of income from my site! 

    Great review.

    1. Hello Hollie Rose
      Good to see and work from home enthusiast reading my article.
      Yes one does need to be motivated and there can be a lot of distractions especially if you are a stay at home mom with little ones that need your attention.
      Also yes to having Adsense on your website as it is a great way to generate some money when you are first starting up working from home with an online business.
      Hope you went away with a few more tips that will enable you to be more successful.
      Onwards and upwards Hollie.
      Have a nice day.

  4. Hi Robert

    Your post is full of great ideas to make money online.

    With regard to Adsense, is there a minimum number of site visitors needed in order to make money from that? And do you have complete control about where the ads appear, as I have come across some posts where those adverts completely interrupt the flow of the post?

    I would completely agree with you that the best way to get started with work online is to learn exactly how to do it by going through the expert and professional training at Wealthy Affiliate. They will teach you just what you need to become an Affiliate Marketer, which is probably the best way to make money online.

    Armed with that knowledge, you are all set up to make your website business a success.

    I was wondering which method out of the ones that you mention is the most successful for you?

    Very many thanks for your really helpful information.

    Chrissie 🙂

    1. Hi Chrissie and thank you for reading my article on working from the home.
      Always a pleasure to get visits from fellow wealthy affiliate members.
      As for Adsense, as far as I’m aware there is no minimum number of site visitors before you will make money from this program.
      As soon as Google puts the Ads on your site you will get visitors simply because of the search terms of people looking for the particular product or service that you have on your site.
      Its actually up to you where those Ads appear and if you have them on your SideBar then that’s where they will appear.
      If you have inserted the code you got from Google anywhere else than your Sidebar then of course you will get those Ads appearing all over your site which of course can be a little off putting to your visitors.
      Affiliate Marketing is usually the best way to start making money online because you don’t really have to do all that much work.
      You write a good review of a product or service and then its entirely up to the owner of those to sell people on the idea to buy them.
      I personally don’t do a lot of affiliate marketing as I went into Mentoring/Tutoring online a few years ago and that is how I have been earning an income.
      However, and as I said before it is the best way to get started.
      There are of course many other ways to make money from the internet and if you read through some of my other articles you will get some idea just how many other ways there are.
      Please get in touch if you need any help and I will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
      Have an awesome day Chrissie and be successful.
      Warmest Wishes For That Success.

  7. Of all the ways to work from home, my favourite is Affiliate Marketing. Affiliate marketing has the potential to give me recurring commissions and some other Awesome benefits.

    Although it takes time to start making money online, what will act as catalysts is good Affiliate Marketing education, the proper tools and fabulous support.

    1. Hi Eazzy
      yes if you want a recurring income day after day, week after week and month after month then affiliate marketing will certainly give you that.
      it does take a bit of work to get started though but the rewards are there for those who aren’t afraid of a bit of work.

      And yes again you definitely need help to get started and to get that momentum going and keep it going.

      Also to have sor a program where there is 24/7 support is a must.

      Can I say that the community that I’m a member off will give you that in spades.

      Well worth thinking about joining Eazzy.

      Onwards to your success and have a very nice day.
