Are there any legitimate working at home opportunities worthy of trying?

A great question, “Are there any legitimate working at home opportunities worthy of trying” and one that I am going to try and answer in this short article.

With technology expanding at such a rate, jobs are scarce and no longer secure as they once were.

People throughout the world are realizing this, and searching for other ways to boost their incomes and hopefully to replace their current ones. Continue reading “Are there any legitimate working at home opportunities worthy of trying?”

How To Work Online at Home, be Successful and rid the Mundane 9-5 drudge

Many people and from all walks of life are looking for ways to make money online so they can eventually “kiss goodbye” to that 9-5 and the day they can tell their boss where to go! How to work online at home, be successful and rid the mundane 9-5 drudge is a worthy question that we are going to be looking at.

I’m sure even though you were searching for something entirely different, its a little tempting to key in a search term like  “how to make money online” or something like?

This is one of the top Internet searches on Google and wouldn’t it be great if you could learn how to crack it?

Just think about how free you would be!

No more boss and no more 9-5 robotic days. Wake up when you want and wherever you want, controlling your days and not letting your days be controlled.

You will find all over the Internet, people being successful or should I say reporting to be successful in earning a living online. Just how many are telling the true story?

They say that around 4% are actually making a living from the Internet so out of 100 people on let’s say youtube telling you they are being successful only about 4 out of the 100 are telling you the truth. Quite amazing odds aren’t they?

How do these 4% actually make a living online?

Do they have an unlimited amount of money and just able to take chances that we can’t?

Are you so brainwashed into the Monday to Friday regime working for someone else, and don’t have any free time and therefore can’t imagine anything else?

What if I told you that being in business for yourself wasn’t beyond your capabilities, and more straightforward than you think, and with the right training behind you a reality?

In this post, I am going to show you how to change your mindset and move away from the 9-5 regime and introduce you to the straightforward steps that you can learn in order to progress and build a successful business for yourself that will eventually become a passive income stream.

What do we mean by a “Passive Income Stream”?

This is when you have your website up and running and attracting traffic 24/7/365, which in essence are customers coming to your website, reading articles and purchasing from you, and this is all done on auto-pilot.

Whether you want to stay at home or travel around the world and work, the choice is entirely yours?

I know a few marketers who are doing just that, traveling the world and working when and where they want, and we are not talking about years down the road.

We are talking about people like you and I who came into Affiliate Marketing with absolutely no knowledge whatsoever and within 2 years they are off.

This can be you!

You must have the right mindset and must be ready to break away from the daily regime that you find yourself currently in.

How To Work Online at Home, be Successful and rid the Mundane 9-5 drudge

I bet when you’ve approached family and friends about how to work online at home and get paid, they probably came back with a dumbfounded luck and told you to stop wasting your time and stop dreaming the big life.

What about your job?

If we listened to those remarks then we would stay in our mundane lives, and never progress and push ourselves, would we?

We all have ambitions and want the dream, don’t we?

Most of us aren’t blessed with being lucky enough to win the lottery and have to work for a living, so why not have bigger aspirations?

There is only one person who can better your life and that is you, right?

I had a good job and it was freelance but I was still working for somebody else, until I woke up one day and said to myself, “I have had enough of this working away from home and only coming back at weekends” Some life eh?

Well, it does get a bit much when you get to certain point in your life and are not single anymore.

Time is precious and my social life is too, just like yours.

Nowadays, the Internet is king and it’s still in its infancy days too, with around 3.75 billion who have access to the Internet, which is around half the world population then why not use it to benefit your life?

But first, you need to understand the basics of what you need to succeed in this business.

Before jumping in creating your online business ask yourself?

What is my interest?

How can I build a professional looking website that gets real traffic?

How do I get visitors to my website?

Where can I find a training platform that will teach me all this and more?

You can read my #1 recommended product review that goes into greater detail.

There are 4 straightforward steps to any successful online business

  1. Choose an Interest, a niche
  2. Build your website
  3. Get ranked in Google and get visitors to your website
  4. Earn commissions

In essence, those top 3 are what it takes to build a successful online business.

The last one “Earn commissions” comes naturally when the first 3 are done correctly.

When you break it all down into these steps everything becomes clear and makes complete sense I think you’ll agree?

What you must be aware of are these processes aren’t going to be done overnight. They will take time and therefore there is work to be done, which is extremely enjoyable especially when you see a return on your investment.

Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day!

The more time you put into this business the quicker you will get to your goal of “Freedom” from the 9-5.

Choose an Interest, a niche

Almost anything you can think of can be a niche and when selecting one try to have a passion for it, this way it will make things a lot easier when developing your website.

No problem if you don’t have an immediate passion for your chosen niche. this can come at a later date!

Just think about it, there are close to 4 billion Internet users searching for literally anything you could imagine, and each one of those search terms has the potential to become a niche.

Check out my review on what a niche is and a guide to selecting the right one.

Build your website

Once you have decided upon a niche for your business, then now it’s time to build your website.

Don’t let this intimidate you because creating a website is a breeze. No technical abilities are required because you can actually have your website up and running in less than 1 minute.

Watch this video and be amazed just how easy it is

Get ranked in Google and get visitors to your website

Your objective before you try to make money with any website is to focus on getting actual visitors to your website and without visitors you have nobody to sell or advertise to.

There are 2 ways to get visitors to your website, paid traffic and free traffic.

Paid traffic is quick but can be extremely difficult to master and a lot down to costs.

This is where you will find the big hitters (major companies) who have an endless supply of money for marketing controlling the advertising, which makes it extremely difficult for us “Fish” to compete in.

Not only that but there are literally 100’s of agencies out there promising you theirs is the best. Take it from me you can find yourself losing a lot of money with a large percentage of these.

You will come up against “Bots” and all sorts of crooked ways of squeezing out your last buck.

Free Organic traffic is by far the best form of traffic I think you’ll agree, but time confusing in the beginning, but when you have your site fully loaded with great content targeting those “Long Tail Keywords” then eventually your site will become a passive income generator, and all it will cost is your time in getting it there, whilst all the others are spending thousands on paid traffic.

Watch this short video which explains things in more detail.

The most important factor in all this is?

Finding the right training platform

OK, so you can learn all this through searching on Google or going to YouTube but we are back to the same dilemma. Who can you trust?

You will find literally thousands who declare their knowledge, but you have to remember that they are trying to get you into their fold and get you to sign up to some MLM, Pyramid selling scheme.

All you will end up doing is losing money.

OK, so we agree on one thing, that you need a mentor because we all need mentors, but choosing the right one can be extremely difficult.

Take a good look at my #1 recommendation how I learned Affiliate Marketing from the grassroots up.

Final Analysis

I hope I have given you a little insight into what is involved when it comes to the building blocks for building an online business and creating your online presence, but remember there is no “magic button” that creates instant wealthy no matter what you are told.

Like I said earlier it is not going to happen overnight. There is work to do and once you have chosen the right training platform with 100% backing then there is no turning back. Confidence is a key factor and when you know that you are in the right place then that’s half the battle.

Stop bouncing from one product to the next, all you will do is lose a lot of money which will play on your mind and only strengthen the negative side of your brain.

Feedback and comments

If you have any questions at all both negative and positive, please leave them in the comments below. I would love to hear them.

Maybe you have some ideas for me or just want a natter about something, please feel free to share.

I will get back and answer all questions at my earliest convenience and to the best of my knowledge.

I’d like to wish you all the best for the future.

What is the Best way on How to Make Money Online from your Home?

What is the best way on how to make money online from your home is a great question and one that many are looking for the answer to? I am sure just like me a few years ago when I was between jobs and looking for an additional income, that you thought it would be easy, but unless you know someone personally like a friend who has actually learned how this works, then just like me you will find it hard.

The Internet is full of miss-information, with many so-called gurus trying to get you involved with their new thing, “their next shiny object”

Sales videos springing up all over the place on social media trying to convince you that their product or their training was the place to be, and like me I bet you fell for all that “BS” too?

Maybe you have been one of the lucky ones who hasn’t lost $100’s if not $1000’s and just looking for some valid information with good advice and how and what to do to add or replace that current income?

Maybe you are one of the many unfortunate ones who has lost hundreds or maybe thousands, bouncing from one guru to the next.

I know what you are going through but I learned very early on in my research and cut my losses, and if you look far and wide and do your research there are options and some very good ones too.

Which Route do you take?

There are many routes you can take, but after spending many hours in research and trying a few of the programs out there myself, I decided that the best online business model was and is Affiliate Marketing.

The only thing I had to do now was to find a training platform that I could trust, which was easier said than done!

Affiliate Marketing is a very simple concept and cost-effective business model, that allows you to function with limited out-goings and where you hold no stocks whatsoever.

You are basically a middle person that bridges the gap between the customer and the product.

It’s a way of marketing or promoting other people’s products to the masses, who are out there on the Internet searching for all sorts of different things.

When you make a sale you get a commission. It’s as simple as that!

If you have a passion, a hobby or an interest, then its just a matter of finding the type of products that relate to your passion, hobby or interest.

How do you find these affiliate products?

In order to promote someone’s products, you have to find where they are which is very easy to do.

There are a few ways to find those products but 2 great ways would be to

1. Search on Google

There are thousands of affiliate programs that you can use such as…

Dating + affiliate programs or

Guitar playing + affiliate programs or

Losing weight + affiliate programs

2. Affiliate Networks

Which are websites that actually hold these products in the one location which makes it a lot easier to find the right product?

I have mentioned a few below but there are probably 100’s of these affiliate networks.

They are all FREE to JOIN and PROMOTE, but some are more difficult to join than others!

Here are a few of the top affiliate networks.

Amazon Associates Affiliate Program

We all use Amazon, right?

All you would do is promote a product on your website and once the visitor clicks on your affiliate link and purchased that product then you would get a commission which varies according to the type of category.

From 0% all the way up to 10%, split into categories. You can check commissions here.

The beauty of Amazon is that when the visitor goes to Amazon through your website link and purchases the product, as long as the visitor is there through your link, then if they purchased any other products you would get a commission for each product purchased.

They don’t have to purchase the product that you are promoting either!

Take for instance if you were promoting a TV and the visitor went to Amazon through your link and purchased the TV or NOT, along with a Toaster, A Blender, Wireless headsets then you would get a commission on each and every product.

How cool is that?

eBay Partner Network

With eBay, there are literally around 1 billion listings to choose from and the same applies, promote a product and get a customer to buy and you earn a commission.

Clickbank

They promote Digital products, software, books, training, etc.

One of the top Affiliate Networks that is well established.

Check it out!

There are much, much more

The business model of affiliate marketing is a very simple concept, but building an online business takes a little time to learn.

Why Affiliate Marketing Business model works so well

As of November 2017, there is approximately 3.75 billion who have access to the internet, which is around half the world population.

The Internet is expanding at such a rapid rate with people searching for everything.

Anything you could ever imagine people are searching for, and all you have to do as an affiliate marketer is to get your product or should I say the product you are promoting in front of them.

Just think, how many times have you heard someone say “Just Google it”?

The Internet nowadays is a place everybody goes to when they need answers to questions.

It doesn’t matter which search engine you use, Google, Bing or Yahoo, key in the search term and instantly you will have a wealth of information in front of you.

Let’s look at a scenario and how we can capitalize on people searching for a particular product or service.

We will use Amazon Associates for our products

Let’s look at people who are searching for let’s say…

“Best Drones that take Ariel Photography” This is also what we would call a sub-niche or a micro-niche.

Drones would come from the Electronics marketplace.

Now I have done a little research and have come to a decision that “Drones” are becoming very popular, in fact, they are massive and I know that there are enough people looking for advice and wanting to buy them, maybe as a gift for their child or for themselves.

They range in price from around $10 and go way up into the $1000’s

People will want information on

The most popular Drone

Drones In a certain price range

Best manufacturer

All you have to do is create a Website, and add a bunch of “Articles” or “Reviews” which are called “blog posts”. Then what you would do is suggest certain types of drones with links to Amazon.

I know what you are thinking, “I haven’t a clue about creating a website, that surely must be beyond my capabilities”?

Well, let me put your mind at ease!

Nowadays building or developing a website is within everybody’s capabilities.

Maybe 5-10 years ago you would have required some technical abilities with some programming knowledge in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, but forget about all that now!

That is a thing of the past!

You can create a fully functioning website within a couple of minutes; in fact, I have seen this done in less than 1 minute.

The search term or keyword “Best Drones that take Ariel Photography” is a search term that people will be keying into Google.

Once the website is created, what we would do then is add a bunch of articles or reviews that visitors to our website would read, suggesting products to buy, in this case, “Drones”

When a visitor clicks on the product link and buys, then you will get a commission, but like I mentioned earlier, the visitor who has clicked on the Amazon link doesn’t necessarily have to buy that product.

They could purchase anything unrelated, and whilst they are still on Amazon through your link buying then you would get a commission for every product purchased.

Brilliant eh?

Does it make sense and can you see the potential now?

Every time a visitor reads one of your articles or reviews and clicks on a product that you are promoting and purchases, then you the affiliate marketer get a commission.

You build your website by adding additional articles and reviews and eventually your website will become a passive income stream and one that will generate you money 24/7/365 days a year and will be around for many years to come.

The more you put into this business the more you will get out of it and the more you write, as in articles and reviews, and the more people you help then the more you will be getting paid.

I’m sure you can see that affiliate marketing is a great business model, and the potential for making a very good living are endless.

Creating an online business takes time

This is not going to happen overnight like all the so-called gurus promise you!

Let me put you straight, there is no magic button to becoming successful online and if someone tells you otherwise then they are lying!

Realistically, just look at any successful business and could you tell me that they sprung up overnight?

Of course, you can’t. A business takes time and you have to build it in the right way.

This is a business that you want around for years to come and to ensure that it is, then the foundation has to be a solid one, otherwise, everything will fall apart.

There is a very precise way to go about it and if you don’t get it right then you’ll get nowhere and give up on this business model at the very first hurdle.

It’s not rocket science and it is certainly not difficult either.

How long would it take to start earning a bunch of money?

Well that all depends on the individual and how much time and effort you put into building your business.

This is not going to happen overnight, like all successful businesses they take time.

Some individuals see the potential in the training and devote many hours, and start earning within 3 months. Others only spend a couple of hours a day and it will obviously take longer.

Not everybody will have time available, due to jobs and other commitments, and there is no pressure at all

Let’s cut to the chase and see how this can be done!

The training platform I decided to go with is Wealthy Affiliate and you can check out my full review here.

Maybe you have heard of it but have pushed it to one side for your own reasons, which is easy to do with all the misinformation there is because I did just that myself.

Eventually, after doing my own research and not been able to find any negative feedback, which believe me on the Internet is extremely rare nowadays, I had stumbled onto what I believe is probably one of the top affiliate marketing training platforms currently on the Internet today.

What have you got to lose, give it a try?

Who could this Training Platform be for?

There are no boundaries to who this training is for and could benefit everyone, with all levels of experience, from complete beginner’s right through to experienced affiliate marketers.

Take for instance.

We all know unless you have some money tucked away that it could be for retired people looking for a job to supplement their pensions?

What about stay at home mums who would love to work from home for an extra income whilst on maternity leave?

Really it is for anybody who wants to work from home for an extra income.

Is the Training easy for a complete Newbie?

You bet it is!

The training platform was designed with the complete newbie in mind!

This is one shop all in one training platform where you can host all your websites

There are 2 memberships, FREE and PREMIUM and I would always suggest trying out the FREE membership first, that way you have absolutely nothing to lose.

FREE means just that, and there will be no asking for CARD DETAILS and there will certainly not be any UPSELLS like you constantly have to put up with everywhere on the Internet.

If you are serious about learning how all this works then what have you got to lose?

Check it out, I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

If you are new to all this and would like to know more then check out my full review of Wealthy Affiliate. You have nothing to lose but so much to gain!

What is a Niche Marketing Strategy and do I need one?

A big mistake that small business owners make is when they try to market their services or products to a large general market, instead of focusing on a sub-niche marketplace.

The most difficult part is to convince a business owner that they should start off small, and focus on a specialized sub-niche market because in their minds, everybody could use their product or services and if they limit their market by selecting a smaller less competitive sub-niche, they will get fewer sales.

Learn How to Create a Website using WordPress from within the Site Rubix Application

Want to know just what Site Rubix is all about, and want to learn how to create a website using WordPress from within the Site Rubix Application, then follow me on this journey.

It’s extremely important nowadays for anybody running a business, whether established or just starting out to have a website.

You just have to look at how fast the Internet is growing, to see that if you don’t move with the times then you will lose out on a lot of business. With around 3.8 billion who has access to the Internet, that’s around half the world population and growing at such a rapid rate.

There are many providers out there you could go to, to create your websites, like Wix, Site123, Sitebuilder and many others. The list is endless, but my recommendation and number one choice, along with many thousands of professionals and online marketers out there would be WordPress.

WordPress is a free and the most supported open source content management system (CMS for short) which is perfect for our needs, seeing as the content is key to creating a great business online, and much more than just your typical website builder.

When you create a website, what you are doing is promoting your brand, and its only right that you want everything to look professional, like it was developed from an external source. WordPress allows you to do that!

What are the benefits of using WordPress

What sets WordPress apart from all the others in my opinion is

  • Ease of use.
  • Over 40,000 plugins you can use to personalize your website.
  • No programming skills required, not like 5 or 10 years ago.
  • You are in complete control.
  • Extremely customizable.
  • It’s mobile, where you can manage your website anywhere in the world.
  • Literally thousands of themes you can choose from, and change them whenever you like.
  • Responsive and great looking sites.
  • Search engines love WordPress websites.
  • Great content platform.
  • Highly supported

You see a few years ago when I was looking for a website builder I did get my feet wet with WordPress so I am quite familiar with the product, but back then it wasn’t easy to figure it all out.

You needed to have some skills in a programming language such as HTML and CSS to be able to do simple tasks, where today this is all taken away and done for you, especially with the enormous amount of plugins available for you to do those tasks, in turn taking your business to higher levels and making you stand out above the rest.

Easy and Fast Steps to Build a website using Site Rubix

With WordPress as our chosen content management system, how can we possibly improve and make it better?

By using a product called Site Rubix!

Developing a website from the ground up is now a breeze, and Site Rubix makes it even simpler and quicker.

Site Rubix was launched in 2007 and was originally a drag and drop editor, and over the years it has been developed into a first class website builder, and at the forefront of technical innovation leaving its competitors way behind.

The platform takes away all the fundamentals you needed to know in the past and provides a newbie-friendly environment which is a complete pleasure to work with.

Everybody I have spoken to who use Site Rubix, and with many knowing absolutely nothing about building an online business or creating a website for that matter, have told me that the one thing that held them back, was the fact that they thought this whole thing about developing a website was going to be beyond them.

How wrong were they, I mean I was too!

Now with all the techie stuff been taken care of, it means that you can get down to learning how to build an online business quicker and with more confidence.

When I say quicker, I actually mean lightning fast!

Let’s take a look at the Site Rubix Application?

Site Rubix makes it extremely easy and takes website development to a completely new level, by allowing you to turn your interest or passion into a thriving Internet business.

Site Rubix is powered by Wealthy Affiliate which provides you with training, support, and all the tools you would ever require in-order to become successful on the Internet.

Don’t take my word for it, you have to try it to truly believe in what I am saying is 100% correct!

Not convinced yet?

Why not try it out, I mean what have you got to lose?

If you are interested in learning about building an online business from the grassroots up, with everything there at your fingertips on one platform, then I can assure you there is no better training on the Internet.

I know what you are thinking, just another load of “BS” right?

I’m not here to try and con you into anything. That is not my intention at all!

If I have managed to at least give you some insight into what is available, and that I have at least opened up your eyes to other opportunities, and given you food for thought, then as far as I am concerned I have done my job.

You certainly don’t have to take my word for what I am telling you, but just think, what if, what I am saying is 100% correct?

FREE membership with absolutely NO up-sells at all, and wait for it – NO CARD DETAILS will be asked for either; well not unless you are serious and like what you see and would like to take this experience to the next level, but that is entirely up to yourself.

You can stay as a Free member, that is entirely up to you but when I joined as a Free member, it took me literally between 1-2 hours to decide that this was the real deal, because I had never come across anything like it on the Internet before, and that was with plenty of research too.

Why not try Site Rubix yourself and you can be the judge!

What about the Community?

The Wealthy Affiliate community is more than just that, it is a family that cares and provides you all the support you would ever need along with coaching and any other help.

If ever you are stuck no matter how trivial you think it is, no need to Google your problem, just create a question and before you have made a coffee the answer will be there in front of you with alternatives to choose from.

Whilst researching various training programs prior to Site Rubix and Wealthy Affiliate, I looked at many options on the Internet, but nothing was fully right for me, somethings were good but other things not so good.

There was never the right balance.

Where else can you approach the co-founders with questions and get answers?

You simply can’t!

Through your development, what better way to give you confidence than to get feedback from experienced Internet Entrepreneurs that are already there and doing it.

Having a friendly community who are available and willing to help you every step of the way.

With Site Rubix and the Wealthy Affiliate community, you can’t fail to succeed.

Want to Learn How to Start up a Business on a Tight Budget

Who doesn’t want to learn how to start up a business on a tight budget?

That’s surely something we have all asked at some point in our lives, and probably more so today especially with advancements in technology, and of course the Internet Boom!

With around half the world population who has access to the Internet through some type of media, that’s around 3.8 billion and counting!

Google alone has a grip on around 67% of the search engine market and people are searching for anything you could think of, and with over 65,000 searches entered every second.

That’s currently over 5.6 billion searches every single day. That is some crowd don’t you think?

That’s 86 with 8 noughts stuck at the end (8,600,000,000)

Just think if you could get a small piece of that crowd. Just a minuscule amount, then the possibilities are endless!

There is absolutely no reason why this can’t be possible.

Everybody is looking for answers and hoping and wishing for the day that they are able to tell their boss that they have had enough and want to call it a day!

I know because I did just that!

The best online business model as far as I am concerned is Affiliate Marketing, and if you don’t know just what this entails you can read an article that I wrote here.

Wouldn’t you love to be able to get up in the morning at your own pace, completely chilled out, relaxed, and with a smile on your face, and actually looking forward to doing something worthwhile, and getting an enormous amount of enjoyment in doing so?

Building an online business the right way is very rewarding, enjoyable and fun.

Nowadays with the rapid advancement of technology, there is no need to have any technical skills whatsoever when it comes to building an online business.

Everything is pretty much point and click. That’s how far we have come from let’s say about 10 years ago.

The Internet was created in 1989 at Cern so that scientists could freely pass information around amongst themselves, and they saw an opportunity to expand this worldwide, exactly what Mark Zuckerberg did with Facebook.

OK, Zuckerberg is an exception!

So really the Internet is in its infancy but expanding at a rapid rate.

Everything is there at the tip of your fingers and in the comfort of your home, you just need a little guidance in the right direction.

How do I Start an Online Business at Home – 4 Basic Steps

Yes, there are only four steps required to learn, in order to build an online business, and we are going to break this down into a little more detail because far too many people are under a misconception that you need to know…

  • How to become a Programmer
  • How to become a Web designer
  • How to become a Graphic Designer
  • How to become a Writer
  • How you need a Business Qualification, a degree of some description

This just isn’t true nowadays!

Whereas it would be great if we had all the above skills, and if we had then I wouldn’t be here and you wouldn’t be here reading this post. Right?

OK, so now I am letting the cat out of the bag!

Learn the 4 simple steps to becoming a success at Wealthy Affiliate
The 4 simple steps to success to how to start up a business
Step 1 – Choose an Interest, a Niche

If you are not sure or want some clarity on what a niche is, how to find one and a profitable one at that check out this article here.

It can be literally anything you want. Take a look at what people are searching for on Google and you could have your Niche right there!

Every one of those daily 8.6 billion Google searches has the potential to become a niche

We all have interests and hobbies, don’t we?

These can be your Niche!

A niche is a focused, targetable part of a market. You are an authority providing a product or service that focuses on specific client group’s needs, which cannot or are not addressed in such detail by mainstream providers.

However, it is important to understand that there is a difference between your niche and your target market.

Your target market is the specific group of people you work for e.g. dog owners, dog groomers, smart tv purchasers, collectors of artworks, book collectors, make money online etc etc

Your niche is the service you specialize in offering to your target market.

For example, finding paintings or antique furniture for a collector of artworks. Someone could offer paintings and someone could offer antique furniture.

It is the combination of a target market and specific service that creates a niche market.

In a nutshell, you offer a service or a solution to a problem!

It really is that simple!

Step 2 – Build a Website

Around 5-10 years ago building a website was considered a specialized skill, and that you required skills in in a particular area, and that you were required to learn programming languages such as Java, JavaScript, PHP, HTML, DHTML, CSS. web-design, but nowadays you could not be further from the truth.

Believe me, when I say that it literally can take you between 1 – 2 minutes to create a professional looking website, in fact, I have seen it done in the training in less than 1 minute, seriously.

You can take a look here and see just how easy it is.

Step 3 – Get Traffic coming to your site

You can have the most professional website in the world, but if you don’t have traffic then all your efforts will be in vain!

There are 2 ways to get traffic. Paid Traffic and Free traffic.

There are arguments to be made here on both fronts.

Use Paid or Free or a combination of both. I know which method I would go for every time!

Both methods are taught but the main method of traffic taught is the FREE method which is SEO (search engine optimization).

Nowadays with the changes in the Google algorithm is not as difficult as you may think, in fact, done right and you can be ranking high in Google very quickly, and saving thousands in PPC(Pay per click) fees.

Step 4 – Earn revenue / commissions

All your hard work has paid off and you have managed to rank well in Google, and you have a good stream of traffic coming to your website.

Now it is time to earn some revenue from affiliate marketing, in the way of commissions, through the vast amount of affiliate programs, such as Amazon Associates, Clickbank, Ebay, just to mention a few, but the list is endless.

Some commissions are extremely high, as much as 75% and some you can find much more.

Learn How to Earn Money Online for Free in the Comfort of Your Home

Learn and earn from the comfort of your home
Achieve success from home

Hey, who doesn’t want to learn how to earn money online for free in the comfort of their home, whenever they want and with no boss hanging over them?

Who doesn’t want to say goodbye to that 9-5 job, and be their own boss?

That’s a dream that pretty much everybody would love to be able to do, wouldn’t you agree?

If you answered Yes to all the above, please read on

I remember when I was at a loss for something to do a few years ago, in between jobs I think it was or maybe I was looking for my next daily grind.

I used to spend hours on the Internet looking for ways to become rich or ways to become a millionaire. I listened to every training sales video going, and was thinking this can’t be difficult, can it?

I found out pretty quickly that it wasn’t going to be easy, or was it?

You see, there are literally thousands of products out there promising you wealth by many individuals who are claiming that their product is the next big thing, and it can be an absolute nightmare which I found out early on in my quest to work it all out.

Internet Marketing is a complex area that you could never master in its entirety. There are so many sub-portions or Niches within Internet Marketing that you can learn and thrive in, but which one do you get involved with?

Everybody tells a different story, and before you know it you are back to square one, and no wiser for your efforts.

I learned, well I thought I’d learned from many so-called gurus who never give you the full picture, and it’s up to each individual to try and decipher what is being told, and this can be extremely frustrating, time-consuming and expensive.

The Internet is literally full of “Garbage” with probably something in the region of 95%+ that you should be staying away from, but when we are sometimes desperate then we will listen to pretty much anybody.

I spent quite a while trying to work it all out and managed to not get involved with any of the MLM (pyramid schemes) where you have to con people to get involved. A sure quick-fire way in how to lose friends and make enemies in the process.

I would like to think of myself has been an extremely cautious person, who researches everything before I make a decision one way or the other, well, I have certainly learned to do that through my trials and tribulations whilst researching.

You must have heard the saying,”Nothing is free in this World”?

That’s a very good question, but it doesn’t have to be like that, not if you look far enough and do your research.

If you are a newcomer to Internet Marketing, and you really want to learn how to build an online business, then you have to find a training platform and one you can trust.

Wouldn’t you agree?

There are thousands of individuals searching for that elusive magic button, or a piece of software that will do everything for you.

Unfortunately, there is nothing at all like that available!

Sadly many people looking for a way out, end up following these so-called gurus and learning absolutely nothing but losing plenty of hard-earned cash in the process.

Many don’t find the answer and end up calling it a day, with their confidence in tatters, and what you do seem to find is that through all this bad advice, you put up the shutters and don’t believe anybody, and a sure way to miss out on opportunities that you thought never existed.

Assumptions that we all make

When we are talking about creating an online business or working from home, people make a few assumptions. As the internet is so huge and billions of pounds are spent on it, people naturally think there must be a very simple way to cash in and make some easy money, and they would be right, if only they knew where to look.

Unfortunately, there are lots of things that can go wrong when we search for methods of making money online. If you have ever searched online for ways to make money then you will no doubt have run into some pretty shady looking websites that simply seemed too good to be true. And yes, if you had doubts then you were probably right.

Trust your instincts!

I’ve been making money on the Internet now for the last three years since my initial chosen career path in IT suddenly ground to an abrupt standstill.

I’m not one of those so-called gurus promising you instant wealth, with pictures of me standing next to my mansion and Ferrari; or me on the beach topping up my tan or traveling the world living the so-called Lap-top lifestyle because I am not and I don’t.

I don’t even class myself as any sort of guru. I hate that term!

I’m just a normal person who learned how to make money online, and here to give you some sort of insight and to hopefully lead you on the right path.

Making a living online isn’t easy, but when you get it right and see results it is very rewarding, and being taught by people who have and are successful is the only way to learn.

Anybody can do this if they are serious, but it is not going to happen overnight. If you put in the time and effort and take on board what you are being taught You Will Succeed, without doubt, it’s just a matter of time.

There are some pretty good training platforms out there on the Internet, it’s just finding the right one that is the problem!

The heading of this article “Learn how to earn money online for free in the comfort of your home”, is not “BS” and it can be done if you put your mind to it.

When I research Affiliate Training Programs I always look for incentives, and an important one I always look for is the ability to have a trial run and one that I can try out until I am ready to make that commitment.

The trial or free membership has to come with me not having to enter any card details. If I have to enter my card details I stay well away from the product. Something doesn’t seem right!

I also don’t get involved if there are any upsells at all too!

Just think about it!

If there was nothing to hide and the training was first class, why wouldn’t they give out a FREE membership option?

A FREE membership here means just that!

By signing up for the FREE account here, there is absolutely no obligation to buy anything at all, and there will be no CARD details required, and there will be no UP SELL either.

You can take it for a trial run as a FREE member for as long as you want, and that doesn’t happen very often with like-minded programs, if at all.

There are two memberships as you can see from the image below, and if you are interested in seeing what this training platform is all about then why don’t you check it out for yourself?

You have nothing to lose and if you like what you see and are serious about developing a new skill in Affiliate Marketing, and learning to build a successful business from the ground up, then maybe you would like to take full advantage of becoming a Premium Member. The choice is yours!

 

Stop falling for all those scams and jumping from one shiny object to the next shiny object. All you will do is create more frustration and lose more money.

You can sign up for a FREE Membership Here!

Learn how to build an online business the right way and from people who have been successful and who are prepared to help you.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please leave them below in the comments, and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.

What is a Keyword Research Tool

For all you budding internet marketers out there who are trying to work it all out, and are forever thinking, where do I turn to? What is a keyword research toolThe Internet is full of miss-guided information and so daunting, to say the least. I mean come on, Google, Bing, traffic, keywords, search engine optimization, Long Tail Keywords and what is a keyword research tool, just to name a few.

The list goes on and on and on, just where do you go to learn all that stuff?

I guess then as you are here that you are new to all this and just doing a little research and trying to get an insight into what internet marketing is all about?

When I started researching ways to make money online, I thought surely this can’t be too difficult, can it?

Just look at all the information out there available for free, with all those experts offering their knowledge. This is amazing, and won’t be long before I can tell that boss of mine what he can do with his job!

No more getting up at 6.00am and driving 100 miles a day to that boring hell-hole, with a boss that I couldn’t stand, well, I’m sure the feeling was mutual, with all that “BS” and not to mention “Politics”. It was driving me round the bend!

I remember thinking, surely I don’t have to put up with all this until retirement, do I?

Well, my quest had begun, to become the only millionaire in my family!

There were experts coming out of the walls, coming from under the floorboards, they were literally coming out from every orifice I could think of or imagine. Sales pitch videos everywhere!

With their massive mansions, holiday homes, tanned bodies and top of the range sports cars, well as you can imagine I had planned and mapped out my entire life right there and then.

My list, consisted of “the” mansion in the country, with a really long sweeping drive,  oh, and don’t forget about the swimming pool too. What about a fishing lake to chill out on, do a bit of fishing and to have a bit of fun with the jet skis. Ups, nearly forgot about the Ferrari, and what about a Bentley to go down to the shops in? Well, that’s just about sorted for the main house!

I literally could not write down my list fast enough!

I thought to myself, “Is that everything”?

Oh, wait a minute, Nah I know what I’ve forgotten!

What about the house in the sun?

Just as I got there I had to shake my head. Hang on a minute, just stop what you are doing, but I haven’t got any money yet have I? Ups, silly me!

So here I am sulking and thinking to myself, well I’d better get this Internet Marketing stuff sorted out first.

Sound familiar?

This was me three years ago before I realized it wasn’t going to be straightforward after all.

You see, it took me quite a while to work it out because of all the “BS” and con artists out there.

Who could you really believe?

As I found out; you know, those experts with their mansions, fancy cars and holiday homes in the sun, waving their money about, are the biggest “BS’rs” and con artists out there, scamming budding internet Marketers like you and I, who are only trying to learn a new skill, and ways to make money online.

Really difficult to work it all out and know who you can trust, it really is.

Anyway, let’s try to give you some sort of clarity. An insight, and try to clear up a few issues, and maybe put you on the right path.

Where does it all start?

It all starts with what people are searching for within the various search engines, with the main ones, being Google, Bing and Yahoo.Breakdown showing who commands the Internet

The Internet is expanding at such a rapid rate with around half the world population who have access to a device of some description, which is estimated to be around 3.8 billion users, and they are literally searching for anything and everything that you could ever imagine, and all these keywords that are entered into the search engines are stored away in a database repository, along with statistical data that defines the keyword(s) to the masses. To anybody who needs to research them further.

To anybody who needs to research them further like you and me.

There are literally millions upon millions of keywords, that tell us what people are looking for, and in order to assemble that data in a format that we can research, we need to interrogate that data, and to be able to do that we need a Keyword Research Tool, but we’ll get to that a little later on.

What is Traffic?

Traffic is the flow of data across the Internet which we are trying to get hold of, in other words, we are trying to place our websites that we are developing in front of what people are searching for so that they can click on our websites and we get paid.

There are two forms of traffic.

There is free organic traffic normally known as SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and then there is

Paid traffic which is known as PPC(Pay Per Click)

Free Traffic: SEO (Search Engine Optimization

Free organic traffic is what is generally known as SEO, Search Engine Optimization.

SEO would be the one to master, simply because it is FREE, but many Internet Marketers stay away from SEO for various reasons, but get it right and you will save yourself a ton of money.

Paid Traffic: PPC (Pay Per Click)

With paid traffic, there is literally 100’s of organizations, agencies that you can go to, but this can be a nightmare, simply because there are too many scam artists out there, unless you get someone to show you, and pretty much every so-called guru are reluctant to disclose that “Secret” piece of information, even if you pay for their training products.

They will never give you the full picture!

The best PPC sites are normally a closed shop and so-called gurus keep that information amongst themselves.

Many people, especially newcomers use Bing,  simply because it is well known as it is owned by Microsoft, very reasonably priced and is the 2nd largest search engine there is.

Bing and Yahoo merged some years ago!

Many use Google Adwords and the #1 search engine, but this route is more expensive, and normally used by the big boys who have all the money.

There are many others out there who just rip you off and take your money and can’t be trusted. A difficult choice!

Paid traffic has to be tweaked until you get it right and if you don’t get it right, then that’s when it can become expensive.

What is a Keyword?

In the context of SEO (search engine optimization), it is a particular word or phrase (usually made up of more than one word) that describes the contents of a Web page. Keywords are what are used to link to a website page and form part of a web page’s metadata, which also helps search engines match a page with the appropriate search term.

What is Metadata?

Just data that provides information about other data on the website.

There are three distinct types of Metadata that exist:

  • Descriptive metadata,
  • Structural metadata
  • Administrative metadata.

The role of keywords used to be very central to the function of search engines. Search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo) could crawl sites, and if the keywords were accurate, then those sites would be displayed in the search results. However, people began abusing the keyword metadata in their attempt to rank higher in Google and to rank in completely unrelated searches. For this reason, the importance of keywords in search engine optimization has been reduced somewhat, but still play an extremely important part of an online business.

Nowadays, A lot has changed in the world of search engine optimization, and Google has come along way, with their constant development upgrades to their algorithm.

What worked in SEO then doesn’t now!

However, certain fundamental principles remain unchanged.

For example, targeting keywords with the sole intent of improving organic rankings no longer work with search engines, but keywords are still extremely important, and therefore you need the right tools for the job.

Long Tail Keywords, and what are they?

There are two types of keywords, one is a general keyword or a broad term keyword, and the other is a long tail Keyword.

A general or broad keyword term, such as “Make Money Online” as an example is a keyword that you should avoid at all costs.

In the above example as you can see we have

Avg      = 174607   (Average number of searches per month. People                                              searching for that exact search term keyword)

Traffic = 29684    (Number of visitors that could click on your website if                                    you managed to rank on page one of Google)

QSR      = 306        (Quoted string results, is the number of competing                                       websites that are ranked in Google for that exact                                           keyword)

These keywords are far too competitive. In other words, they have plenty of traffic but also far too many websites are trying to rank for that same keyword term, and the chances of you getting ranked in google will be zero.

The big companies will be competing for those broad term keywords as they have all the money!

Basically, long tail keywords are the type of keyword that we are generally looking for, and these are derived from the broad term keywords. This is just a keyword with words added to the beginning and the end.

Long tail keyword wrapped around the broad term “Make Money Online” keyword.

(prefix) How do I Make Money Online

See how the figures drop considerably and less competitive?

This allows you to drill down into the broad term, in other words, control a sub-portion of the broad term keyword.

Pretty much like a family tree, where the broad term sits firmly at the top, and below are the different levels which are our long tail keywords, which are extending each time we go down a level.

By finding longer keywords this enables you to avoid competition and in SEO that is exactly what we are trying to achieve.

Long tail keywords are keywords that don’t get searched as much as other more popular broad term keyword phrases, usually because there are more specific to a sub-portion of a broad term. Most long tail keywords are at least three words long, however, the length itself doesn’t dictate whether a keyword is considered a long tail keyword or not.

Long tail keywords are generally regarded as much easier to rank for than broad keywords, as they tend to be classed as a low competition keyword.

How do we find and determine a low competition keyword?

Now we have determined that what we need to find when searching for keywords are “Long Tail Keywords” as these are less competitive.

There are two factors to take into consideration which determines a “Low Competition Keyword”

A low competition keyword is where we have a considerable amount of traffic.

That is where the exact keyword phrase that is keyed into a search engine over a monthly period.

Avg = 48+ People searching for the exact keyword

QSR = Below 100 but not greater than 300

I would always look for a QSR = 0-50

A great low competition long tail keyword to use would be something like.

 

A few broad and long tail keywords.

Broad keyword

Make Money Online

Long-tail keywords

How do I Make Money Online

How do I Make Money online from home

By targeting less frequently searched terms, you can get ranked on Google’s first page much more easily.

What is Search Engine Optimization and how does it Work?

SEO or search engine optimization is a technique which is used to maximize the number of visitors to a website or web-page by ranking higher on Google pages, which is known as organic search engine results

SEO is the process of improving the rankings of a website or a web page for free, with what is generally known as “organic” search engine results. SEO combines creative and technical aspects that influence search engine rankings and can be broken down into two main areas: On-Page-SEO and Off-Page-SEO.

You won’t be able to improve your search engine rankings by focusing on and optimizing only one area of SEO, as they are interconnected and affect one another. As a marketing strategy, SEO focuses on optimizing all elements that influence search engine results, including keyword research, content, HTML, site architecture, link building, and so on. It’s also important to note that SEO can target different kinds of search: image search, video search, local search, news search, academic search and vertical search that focuses on a specific industry.

What is Keyword Research and Analysis?

The object of keyword research is to generate numerous keyword terms that are highly relevant, yet not obvious to the given input keyword phrase. This involves brainstorming and the use of keyword research tools. To achieve the best SEO results, it is important to optimize the website as well, for the most relevant keywords.

It is good practice to search for related keywords that have low competition (QSR=0-100) and still a high number of searches. This makes it easier to achieve a higher rank in search engines which usually results in a lot more traffic.

What is a Keyword Research Tool?

An important aspect of doing keyword research and doing it well is choosing the right Keyword Tool for the job, and this can be a daunting task, as there are so many to choose from and at various costs.

A keyword tool is something that pulls the data stored in a Data Repository which would be maintained by Google and produces the data in a manner that we can understand clearly.

There are too many Keyword Tools on the market today that is vastly too complex for the task at hand, and try to convince you that you have the best keyword tool on the market.

The Keyword Tool will display which keywords are being searched for the most. and which have the least competition, these are vital for finding Traffic that your website can be seen by when trying to rank in Google.

I have tried several Keyword Tools in the past with various amounts of success, and if you would like to know what a great keyword research tool looks like with an in-depth review explaining things in more detail then please click the below link.
