Earn Money At Home For Free - 2 Free Ways To Earn Money On Line
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you have searched the web for work at home jobs, you know that many promise that you can earn money at home for free, but few deliver.

Instead you find teasers of free information and follow the information with fees to join a membership, or to get an ebook, or to download a software program to help you make money.

Let me provide you with a few truly free money making opportunities.

Article Writing

All web sites need content. With the crackdown from Google search engine, unique content is vital for a web site to get high search engine ranking which means for traffic and profits for the web site owner. Many times these web sites will seek Private Label Rights (PLR) articles that are unique and written by people like you and me, who have a passion and knowledge on the topic of their web site.

Web sites like Squidoo and Associated Content are called article directories and are web sites of multiple topics. They enlist writers to provide unique content so their site is views and revenue created by ads placed on their site. Squidoo shares payment from the commission with the authors, while Associated Content pays the author for the article if it is accepted and even provides an ongoing payment if people continue to view the articles.

Affiliate Marketing

Article writing is not the only way to earn money at home for free on the web. There is also affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing usually involves article writing, but is more involved and provides a much great financial reward. Affiliate Marketing is where you, the affiliate, connect the merchant with the consumer to purchase a product or service the consumer is seeking to fill his need. This is not high pressure sales, but simply guiding a person to where they can find the information or service that meets a need. As a result, you, the affiliate, receive a commission. Some of the commissions are in the 50% to 70% range on downloadable products.

Let's look at the steps you need to take to earn money at home for free with affiliate marketing. (There is also a paid affiliate marketing technique called Pay Per Click (PPC) that I will not cover here).

1. Since this method is involved and does not have immediate payment, write down what will motivate you to persevere. Is it paying down your mortgage? Providing an income since you are without a job? You get the idea.

2. Write down three areas you are passionate about (and know alot about).

3. Find a product the relates to those passions that you can promote and sign up with that company to promote the product.

4. Research keywords (a word or phrase that people would use to find the product or meet the need they have), and choose keywords that have high traffic and low competition, i.e. that many people are searching for and few people are writing about.

5. Write articles using the keywords and place product links in the article or author bio..

6. Submit the articles to article directories.

7. Use a free web site to build a web site under the keyword.

8. Create backlinks to your web site. This is links from your articles, forum posts, etc. to your web site.

9. Repeat for each of the passions you have.

10. Watch the money come in as a result of the articles you have written.

All of these steps are totally free, so you can truly earn money at home for free.

However, there is no guarantee on financial success. I spend hours writing my first set of articles and even more hours creating a web site. I earned less than $100. Nevertheless, I learned valuable lessons. The product I was promoting and the company I was using would only pay out about $2 per sale. So I learned to evaluate the profitability of the effort involved. There are many other key areas I have learned by trial and err and seeking knowledge and training.

This is a business in which you learn by doing. You learn by mistakes, correct your mistakes, and gradually become more successful.
