Work From Home | Affiliate Marketing
I know what kind of situation you are in - I was in your shoes a few years ago when I began my search on programs that would allow me to work from home. In fact, I had over $12,000 in debt on my credit cards by the time I was only 20 years old. My minimum wage job was not paying me enough to even keep the interest down on what I owed. To say the least, I was a bit nervous about my future and the thought of having that much debt made me sick to my stomach.
On top of that, I was enrolled in university and when you combine the debt of student loans, along with the money I spent on trying to be an "internet success", I had well over $45,000 in debt... yikes! I understand the feeling of not knowing what to do in order to make good money over the internet. I signed up for online surveys, data entry programs, shopping schemes, multi-level marketing programs, drop-shipping services, and a few other courses which all promised the world.
What did I get in return? Absolutely nothing except for one thing which I will touch on in a minute...
What is the problem with programs like the ones I just mentioned? Getting paid to take surveys is a joke. For a few hours work you might make a few bucks - that is not what you want in order to create a business for yourself. Remember, making serious money online will require a proper business, not some $2 dollar survey. You could go into the dating niche for example, writing for a sub-specialty such as understanding men in relationships or perhaps you are interested in cooking. The goal is to find something you are interested in.
Data entry programs simply teach you how to advertise in Google Adwords and other PPC networks. I teach you that for free - so save yourself the money and invest your time learning through the use of this website. Get yourself a web-host using a discount and create a simple site. Shopping schemes are just that - schemes. Multi-level marketing programs or 'MLM' are nothing but a take off of the old pyramid scheme. Drop-shipping requires marketing skill and a working website, however if you wish to have a big store on eBay or the like, that may be what you are looking for.
My success with earning money online only came once I learned all I could about affiliate marketing. I was fortunate to insist on learning and buying as many programs that I felt were reputable and honest. In the end, I was slowly reversing all of the debt I owed and today I am well in the 'black' (no debt). I attribute this success to a few factors, namely:
- Ability To Learn
- Strong Passion To Succeed
- Desire To Be Wealthy - Not Just Monetary Gain
- Dreams & Goals
- A Learned Trait To NEVER Give Up
- Intuition - Separate The Good From Bad (Products/Courses/etc...)
If this sounds like you, and you really want to work from home within the next 8 months - 2 years, then you owe yourself a HUGE favor to read some of the helpful articles on this website. Pick a category and just start reading. Stop wasting your time on broken promises. No one is going to pay you for bracelets, envelopes, data entry, or anything of that sort. You should also never have to pay to apply for a job. It is acceptable though, if you pay for a program or course that teaches you how to do or learn something, such as web design or a course on marketing.
With these tips, I wish you a ton of success for the start of your career. Stay focused, stay energized, and keep on task. If you are able to concentrate on one particular aspect of a home business, you will be able to work from home sooner than you think.
