HOW TO MAKE MONEY FROM HOME?
In this article I want to share with you some of the easiest business ideas to implement, to start earning money online.
EARN MONEY ON THE INTERNET BY CREATING YOUR OWN BLOG OR WEB PAGE
Best thing for the beginning !
Definitely, creating a professional blog or website is (at least for me) the best way to earn money online, while working from home and the one I personally recommend as the first option…. But why does it seem to me that a blog is the best way to make money online?
Simply because writing about something that you are really passionate about, from your home or anywhere in the world and that you receive money for doing it, for me is the best job in the world, in addition to there are many ways with which you can monetize it .

Thanks to my blogs, I was able to quit my traditional job and multiply my income, all while living the life of my dreams.
Of course, I want to make it very clear that I didn’t do it overnight, and I warn you here, since there are hundreds who write to me weekly saying that they will resign their jobs to create a blog, and what I suggest! is to do it backwards !
Personally, I worked on my first web project every night when I arrived from the office, and during the day I continued with my regular schedule (one that made me leave my house at 6am and return at 9pm).
I did not deliver my resignation letter until I saw my blog generate, for more than 3 months in a row, income that exceeded my old salary.
The one that took me 6 years, a bachelor’s and master’s degree I got; but now I was far exceeding, thanks to the fact that I decided to create a blog that allows me to live traveling and earn money online …
EARN MONEY ONLINE WITH AFFILIATE MARKETING
This is possibly the easiest way to earn money online.
It is summarized in finding products aligned to the theme of your website, and that you really like, and then join their affiliate program and promote them with your followers, receiving a commission for each sale (they will give you an affiliate link that will allow them know if a customer came through your referral).
There are thousands of affiliate programs that you can join and most of them are completely free (cj.com, Amazon Affiliates, shareasale.com, tradedoubler.com, zanox.com, etc.).
The only requirement to be accepted is to have a blog or web page related to the theme of the product or service you are seeking to promote.
For example: a travel blog can join booking.com and a fashion website (or almost any other theme), you can apply to the Amazon affiliate program and start promoting clothes and your favorite accessories, among thousands of other products that Amazon has to choose from with Amazon discount codes.
EARN MONEY ONLINE WITH ADVERTISING
This is one of the most used monetization models to earn money online passively ( 24/7 and working the minimum ), especially when they are blogs or websites that handle news or entertainment-type themes and that have the facility of going viral .
Since this method pays only a couple of pennies per click, you need to have a high readership for it to become a good source of income.
Based on my personal experience using Google Adsense on this and several of my other web pages, for every 10,000 ad impressions you would be earning a minimum of $ 10 ($ 1 for every 1,000 impressions).
This can vary according to your theme, the location of the public that reads you, the authority of your website and some other factors.
MAKE MONEY BY SELLING DIGITAL PRODUCTS (INFOPRODUCTS)
If your website is about a topic that you are really passionate about (which is what I always recommend to my readers when they ask me for advice to choose the topic of their blog), and you have some knowledge or a lot of experience about what you write (it is not necessary Having a university degree that accredits you as a travel graduate, etc.), you can create and sell a digital product or “infoproduct” (generally in PDF or prerecorded video format) and have the possibility of generating thousands of dollars a month in online income.
CREATE AN ONLINE COURSE OR PROMOTE ANOTHER BLOGGER’S COURSE AND WIN A SALES COMMISSION (AFFILIATION)
The idea is based on making money online by creating a course (videos, PDF + Facebook Group, etc.) in which you share information that helps solve some of your readers’ problems.
Are you very good at managing your budget and make the money go smoothly until the end of the month, even when your income is low? Well, teach others to do the same and earn thousands doing it!
IS EARNING MONEY ONLINE EASY?
As we all know, nothing in life is really worth achieving is easy, and of course generating enough passive income to live comfortably is NOT easy. Doing so requires a lot of work, at least initially.
HOW LONG CAN YOU START MAKING MONEY ONLINE?
You will NOT create your website today and start making money online tomorrow. Earning money online and generating passive income to the point of being able to do it by leaving it automatically, takes time.
EARN MONEY ONLINE WITH DROPSHIPPING
To do this, you must create your website , add an online store section and buy a product from its manufacturer or a wholesaler or you can partner with huge brands like Deciem and promote their products with The Ordinary coupon codes.
With this business model, it is the manufacturer who is responsible for sending it directly to the customer, which prevents you from having to acquire an inventory or get involved in logistics problems.
You must make a prior agreement with the manufacturer, specifying that your work is limited to customer service and collection of the product and that after that, you will receive a percentage of commission for the sale.
EARN MONEY ONLINE PROVIDING YOUR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
When you have knowledge and skills in specific areas (such as law, finance, software, etc.), you can offer your consulting services virtually and start earning money online in a few weeks.
EARN MONEY ONLINE WITH AFFILIATE MARKETING COMMISSIONS
If you do not have products to sell and you do not have any own service to offer but you want to make money online, affiliate marketing may be your ideal option to make money online .
It is based on finding a product from another blogger, entrepreneur or brand that you really like, joining their affiliate program (they will give you a unique link with which you will promote the product or service), and then promote it with your readers and followers, and finally receive a commission for each sale.
As with several of the above options, the only thing you generally need to be accepted in these free enrollment programs is to have a professional website to share those affiliate links.
