Congrats! You are probably reading this blog because you want to change your life, and you want more time and financial freedom. When deciding to start an online business, you want to make sure you are in the right path. It is right to educate yourself especially when this is your first business experience.
Now you are probably excited and you want to know what your next step will be. Do you travel right away? Do you blog? Download social media if you don’t have one?
It is normal to ask all these questions. If you do online business the wrong way, it may take you years to start earning some money via the internet while traveling the world. Did you know that a lot of these bloggers took years before they started earning a reliable income? But here’s the GREAT news: I am here to share with you the secrets on how to start earning money online in less than 6 months! I started working online as a part time thing because I had to keep my corporate job. And, even though I was only doing it part time, after receiving the right training (with the system I’m about to show you), I made good money after a month and a half. That allowed me to fund all my travels and obtain the time freedom I was looking for to my great surprise.
Now will you earn on your first month and a half, too?
It all depends on your pace. Honestly, some made money within their first month. Some took 2-3 months. Some even after a year!
I’ve hinted to you the key word in the previous section when venturing into online business – courage. You should be brave enough to try. Just imagine the amazing life that you’d have if you only made some attempts.
Some people never really achieved much– Speaking of trying, the online world maybe new to you. But it is something you can learn and handle. I know a friend who started out as a freelance writer charging as low as $1.50 an hour. But he simply tried, and he’s quite successful now. There are so many opportunities when it comes to online freelance work. Here’s a list of jobs that are waiting for you online: If you’re good at any of these, it’s time to try one or two. You’d be glad you did because you’re soon off to your dream travel. Believe me.
Online Freelance Work
The first time my friend tried writing (that was in 2011), his first client got a hold of the material he had worked on for more than a week, and the poor freelancer friend of mine didn’t get paid even a single cent. He committed a fatal mistake of sending the work in its entirety without requesting for the payment first.
That was six years ago. Now, he charges $95 per hour doing academic and technical writing. Well, he does other things like ghostwriting, PR pitches, editing and a lot more. You see, the online world offers limitless possibilities. If you’re a prolific writer, online writing is definitely for you.
There are many reliable and legitimate freelance companies online. Some require membership fees while others are free. Every time you get a job through their site, they get a certain percentage of the total payment and that’s how they earn.
Competition is great, but we live in a heavily populated world and there will always be clients who will stumble upon your name/profile. The technique is building an impressive portfolio, which almost becomes automatic as you give every project
your best shot and impress your customers. It’s best to begin as a part-time freelancer (so don’t give up whatever it is you’re doing) until you become established.
Writing Travel Blogs
You don’t have to be a writer to have a blog, especially a travel blog site. I see a lot of travel blogs that have quite a lot of writing flaws but are being viewed and followed anyway.
It’s not easy to earn a big income with a travel blog, that is if you do things the wrong way. I would know, because I am a beginner blogger myself. If I had not found the system that helped me to make money online, I’ll probably be blogging for years without an income. The amount of time/effort required to do so is much more than most people imagine. But if you’re looking for some extra cash to help fund part of your
travels, while keeping the world informed of your adventures, starting a travel blog might be your answer. I have met other bloggers myself who struggled so much before they started earning money. Some had to quit right away. But if this is really your passion, go for it!
I did not say this to put you down, but to make you aware of the blogging industry.
There is still a way to earn money while blogging like what I do…and that’s one thing I will show as you read through. You can check out my blog site.
Venturing into Vlogging
From the word itself, you’ll know that this is a form of blogging, except that you do it by video. A typical blog site (like a travel blog) would normally use still photos although some have combined both still and video.
As a vlogger, you need to have a good and reliable camera and be able to learn basic techniques in shooting and editing footages. You can do the shoot or ask a buddy or your special someone to help you.
Competition is also immense, so you need some guidance as to how to start your own vlog site. One of the secrets is making sure you offer something new that is hard to ignore by wanderlust guys and gals. And there is more, so check out my blog site. Aside from your vlog, you would want to set up your own YouTube site. I also started my own YouTube site. Visit and subscribe now.
Engaging in E-Commerce
If you have that entrepreneurial spirit – that desire to sell something that you see or make – you’re a great candidate to the hall of fame of successful online business men or women. Instead of simply doing direct selling, as in having a physical store, you simply have to have a virtual shop. Go online, my dear friend, and tap the endless possibilities that await you.
Yes, you can earn a lot through e-commerce by selling stuff you produce or are manufactured by other people. This is how you do it: set up your own website (it’s not hard to do it). But if you’re not confident enough to create a website, have a friend or a professional do it for you. In the alternative, you can set up a shop on eBay or other online outlets that are engaged in e-commerce.
Alright, you’re not the enterprising type, but you’re convinced that the internet is the key to living an awesome life of pleasure and travel. What else can you do?
Here’s the deal: If you’re looking for a steady and lucrative online secret, affiliate marketing is definitely the answer.
How does it work? You don’t need to sell or write about any product or service. You simply have to be the advertising board or mouthpiece to lead people to an affiliate link to check out a product or service. This is best for people who hate selling. Because you don’t need to sell anything or endorse a product to your website, etc. Now, when people go through your link, and end up buying the product, you earn a commission. That’s how it works – very simple, right?
It’s always ideal to have a site and work on a niche you’re comfortable with, but that’s not always necessary. Again, you simply have to be a mouthpiece for products/companies. Voila! You earn without doing any work.
Now that you have learned some of the online business you can do out there, You should be able to select the perfect business for you!
A business you believe is for you, and a business you are passionate about!
I personally do Affiliate marketing because of the high commissions and because i can incorporate my passion with this. I will be talking more about this option so stay tuned!
