Making Money At Home!

making money at home.

Since the development of the Web, it has never been easier to get involved with making money at home. Over the next few minutes, I can show you how to get started with what it takes to create an online presence to begin earning an income.

Each day thousands of people begin the quest to take the first steps to finding out how to generate an online income or for those already in the know wanting to create more by finding the right opportunities.

Most people already know and understand what it is to be an employee. I use to be one until I made the decision to own a business and had a better lifestyle than I was living as an employee. This choice could be the same reason you are now considering to have your own business or perhaps you have another reason. The fact you are here, tells me, your looking to change the standard status quo to something much more.

Making money at home changes the whole workforce concept to giving you a much more flexible lifestyle when you’re no longer tied to the traditional mindset of no longer punching the time clock. From when we were young, we were told about getting the best education to see about getting the best job to earn the best income to provide for our families and lifestyle.

The Internet has now changed all of this and made it possible for anyone to have the opportunity to earn an income from home. To generate a home based income; a few things need to happen.

Research Your Options


making money at home researchKnowing you want to earn an income from home is great in all, but you need to consider how you’ll accomplish the task. This part is one that nearly everybody can realize, but very few ever get past it. Before the Internet came along your options were very slim pickings and tend to be home based jobs that still did not give you the full freedom most of us wanted.

Now with the Internet, all those previous home based jobs are still available but with a vast amount of extra opportunities the web brings for the products and services that one can offer or get involved in, your chances of success have increased dramatically.  What was once just fantasy for most is now becoming reality, for many. Limitations that use to be road blocks for the masses are falling to the wayside as opportunities now come flooding in due to the Web.

It has come to the point where instead of saying what can I do to be making money at home but rather which way shall I earn this income while I’m at home. For further information about the different opportunities check out this page from the free 10-step course, Step #1 – Learn How To Make Money Online.


Learn how to Act upon your Options


Understanding and knowing what you would like to do is entirely different from actually implementing and taking the appropriate steps to make it all happen. With the Internet, there are many ways in which you can choose your path for how to create income from the comfort of your home. Just as you can make the choice for the types of products and services available for you to offer, you also have the option of how you will introduce them to the millions of people surfing the web.

Choosing your product or service is one small part or piece of the puzzle that you need to complete to make your home based business succeed. You need to know the different methods to how you can get what you’re offering to the public to make sales for earning your income. These platforms that you’ll have to choose from will require the appropriate strategies according to their function and way they operate to advertise your products or services.  Difference between each type will generate a variety of outcomes

The difference between each type will cause a range of the results to the success of your conversions and to get started with more detail with what they are, check out Step #2 – How To Make Money Online Fast.

Get an Online Presence


Getting an online presence is all about using one or more of the many platforms designed on the Internet to get your products or services out there to all your potential customers. You can start to search them all out separately and take the time to figure which way to promote what you want to offer, or you can start to learn about all of them in one centrally located area. The advantage of using more than one platform

making money at home online presenceThe advantage of using more than one platform is the diversity of how many people you’ll be able to reach as a whole. Most Internet Entrepreneurs have come to realize the best and most profitable way to generate the maximum amount of income from having an online presence is with a website as the hub and utilize the site to connect back and forth to the other alternatives.

You can make money with each type of platform on its own but for maximum benefits, you tend to do better with a site as your core and connect with the other platforms for enhancement.

I use to be an employee for many years until one day I decided to have my own business almost ten years ago. I made my decision with registering a domain name and building a website and I’ve been working at my business ever since to be living the dream.

It was not until I discovered Wealthy Affiliate just over a year ago, how to create a site on a platform that makes it easier for anyone to have the ability to have an online presence without understanding how to code. They also teach you everything you need to know to becoming successful but for me most importantly is WA and the community keep you up to date with all the changes going on in the Internet to stay on top. That alone saves me many hours of not having to do extra searches on the Web.

Hi Travis, You seem like a knowledgeable person. It looks like you really know what you’re talking about.

As a blogger, I can really tell that the world is full of opportunities. The internet opened the doors for many people to their financial freedom. Today it’s easier to start your own business than ever before!


    May 29, 2016 at 9:04 pm

    Yes it has and for many people they want to get involved but not everyone knows where to start. Now that I have found a place that does offer an opportunity to just about anyone I decided to create this site to help them out with a place to start.

    By starting off with a proper provider, it becomes much easier to get a successful online business in place without having to spend months to years searching as many people do, looking for an opportunity to get started.

Hi Travis,

Thanks for sharing this list of practical steps for creating a home business or any kind of business for that matter!

I see that you recommend Wealthy Affiliate, I’m a member of Wealthy Affiliate myself and have been for a couple of years now.

I thinks it’s a great place to go for anyone looking to learn how to create an online business as yo are essentially provided all the training and tools you need, on top of that you get all the support you require!


    June 15, 2016 at 11:08 pm

    That is what I discovered just over one year ago when I switched from my previous provider and started using Wealthy Affiliate as my new provider.

    After taking the time to go through the training and learn from the community, I also realized like you how great they all are and decided to pass on to others looking to find a proper place to build a website.

Think having a website and working from home is becoming the norm for people
It used to be that if you didn’t go to university people wanted to know why as that was what you were expected to do – in years to come I think people will wonder what’s wrong if you don’t have a website! Cause that’s what you are expected to do.
I enjoyed reading your site, I have been a member of wealthy affiliate for 3 months now and am really enjoying it and seeing some success already. Best thing I did this year so far is join WA.
Thanks for the great content


    June 15, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    That is great Jenny; you choose an excellent platform that will allow you to create a fantastic site. There are plenty of courses and ongoing training not to mention all the great tips and training available from the community all with no up-sells which I love.

    You get everything included in one monthly or my case super saving yearly cost for a system that is second to none.

Very helpful information here it’s not easy making money online and even harder to do it as a job.

I’ve been struggling for years to do such making a little something here and there. But after reading your article i see I’ve been doing it wrong and that’s why I’m not getting the results I desire. Thank you for writing this you’ve inspired me to be the best I can be in what I love and that’s making money on the Internet.

I’ll be sharing this website in my Facebook group thanks once again.


    July 6, 2016 at 11:55 pm

    Not a problem as I was not getting the best performance from my previous provider either. For me, the first step was to get a new provider that had all the tools and knowledge I needed to find out how to make everything happen in proper order.

    With the Internet, it is very easy to get sidetracked and make mistakes that sometimes your not even aware of unless you have a good knowledge base to get the answers. I now have that type of support from Wealthy Affiliate and the community.

Hello Travis.
Great content on work from home. I have to admit that 9-5 jobs are not flexible enough for one to do other things in life like travel, holidays and hobbies.
I believe that working from home is great.

I usually do a lot of drawing as a hobby, I cannot do that if I am in a 9-5 job, i have to agree with you that working from home makes your time much flexible and it definitely will accommodate time for me to draw


    July 31, 2016 at 2:31 pm

    It is true that working from home will give you better flexibility to do the things you want to do.

    Having an online business means you’ll be able to schedule easier for vacations and if you do require to get some work done you just need access to the Internet.

    Having the ability to be located in different areas just as long as you have Internet access makes things so much easier to deal with. Choosing your hours will make it easier for you to draw as well.

Hey Travis,
Your Post is very entertaining and informative.
I very much agree with you, the Internet has revolutionized the world and the way we do business .
I felt honored with your article because I also wrote about it on my site , and I really enjoy reading the opinions of others, and even more when we agree on some idea.

    Well Giancarlos, it’s great to know you liked the article and it’s also good to know that you are also out there helping others find their way with a business opportunity. Every year there are more people turning to the Internet to make money and support their families. The more information that we can get to help people along the better.


September 15, 2016 at 1:31 am

I have a question. When you finally build your website and you actually start posting and making things on there, how often does this need to be done in order for it to start working?

Like do you need to post something only once a week or every single day or so? I’m completely new to this subject matter so thanks for the article!


    September 15, 2016 at 10:46 am

    To answer your question Jaylin, if you are in a position to do daily posts, then you will speed up the process of having the search engines recognize you as an authoritative site with continued fresh content. The biggest thing most people will find is we usually do not have the time to create that many posts that frequently.

    So the thing to remember is the more consistent you can be, the better, so even if once a week is all you can do, you will still rank. So if your content quality is always the same then the more frequent you post, the sooner you’ll rank.

    Also know that for those who post less frequently than some others, they can still bypass the others who post a lot if you have better content where your posting quality and not quantity. It’s all about posting the best content with the best low competition keywords to get you ranking. Quantity only works if you have taken care of all the important factors that the search engines require.

    So as you keep adding high-quality content, your site will accumulate the volume that will rank your site after a while.

    Do the best you can for posting frequently. Once you get to the stage of not needing a job, and you can do your site full time, then it becomes easier to fit in the time to accomplish what you want.

Hi there Travis,

As a content marketer that works from home or the occasional visit to a co-working space to hang out with like-minded individuals. I can indeed confirm that it is very, very, very real that anyone can earn a substantial income from home by using the power of the internet.

In my humble opinion and of course experience a top quality on going education is essential and that is what wealthy affiliate provides. I am a member and love how they guys there have got my back covered when it comes to search engine algorithm updates and weekly webinars.


    January 13, 2017 at 3:46 pm

    That was one of the biggest things that I had discovered from being with previous providers. The other providers offered no training not to mention continues training to keep you up to date with all the latest things that was happening on the Internet. It was not until I discovered wealthy Affiliate that I could get the bulk of what I wanted and needed from a single source.

    There will always be things you’ll need from other places to do an online business but Wealthy Affiliate supplies so much that my costs to be with other providers and outsourcing all the extras that Wealthy Affiliate provides me would easily cost five times the price.

    For me to be with Wealthy Affiliate saves me a lot of money plus you get to profit from what you’re sites can earn you. It’s a win win situation I enjoy just like the other things you have mentioned in your comment.

Hey Travis,

This is a great post and this is exactly what I have been dreaming about for quite some time. This is definitely not something that is easy to come by but the freedom gained from it in the end will be well worth the wait!

I know it’s different for everyone but how long did it take before you got it right? Did you choose the right niche the first time or had to change it one or twice before you found the right one?


    April 2, 2017 at 10:54 am

    In my case, I have been on the Internet for over twelve years. My first ten were with other providers who were only suitable for creating and having a website online. They never teach or show you how to have a successful site to earn an income. The communities that they had in the place were more interested in upselling your stuff to make money, and most of what they offered was crap. They were only interested in making money.

    It was not until I discovered Wealthy Affiliate just over two years ago that they give you everything you need as a provider but also what you need to be successful online with their courses. The community also helps you with being successful and offer lots of great training, and there are no upsells.

    It takes on average 3-12 months to start creating an income and my test site started around ten months for what I was doing with Say It With Photographs. My primary sites are what I concentrate on and generate my income from for paying bills. This latest site here is something I started a year ago to help others once I discovered and tested Wealthy Affiliate out for a year. After I had seen first hand how great and how much they could offer to others looking to make money online, then I decided to promote WA which is the first time I’ve supported any provider since being online.
